Chlorophyll-Rich Greens

Super powers: Powders or liquids that contain spirulina, chlorella or wheatgrass are all concentrated sources of chlorophyll, which gives leafy greens their color and health-promoting powers, and may help balance acidity in your stomach for better digestion — and even fight bad breath.

Plays well with: Fresh mint helps brighten the earthy, grassy flavor. (Add a cup of fresh spinach to just about any smoothie; it is much milder and easily masked by fruit).

Coconut Water

Super powers: It's low in calories and high in electrolytes, which help dehydration (especially after a hot and sweaty workout).

Insider tip: Powdered (dehydrated) versions are typically cheaper per serving.
