Summer is ending and Back to School is just around the corner for many of us
(ain't we lucky???).
But is your body READY for the daily grind?
What about your kids?
Don;t just load them with another multi-vitamin, with who knows what ingredients in it!
Give them the best nutrient source you can give them from:
MegaFood was the first company to make vitamins from scratch, with farm fresh whole foods, and they have done it that way for 40 years! MegaFood is committed to producing the most authentic nourishment possible, and to improving the lives of others with the products they make. The products have no sweeteners or preservatives, are gluten-free, non GMO, soy and dairy free, and are even Kosher!
The secret to MegaFood's authentic nourishment begins with their sourcing fruits, vegetables and whole grains from their Farm Fresh Farm Partners throughout the United States and Canada, who have a commitment to grow with care and ethical farming practices. The freshly harvested foods are sent straight to MegaFood, where they are rigorously examined for quality, prior to beginning their journey through our one-of-kind Slo-Food Process, that maximizes the amount of nutrients pulled from the foods. The Slo-Food Process was designed to be slow and gentle. This means that the foods are not exposed to damaging temperatures, that diminish the foods' nutritional value, nor destroy any of the colorful aromatic compounds that give a freshly harvested food its color, taste and nutritional punch! By preserving freshness of the foods it makes all the difference in their products and your health!
Each one of the MegaFood FoodState Nutrients has a unique recipe to deliver an optimal level of a specific vitamin or mineral, which has been tested for potency assurance and purity. I was sent 4 of their nutrients- 2 blends and 2 solo nutrients to check out for myself:
As you can see, they also included a guide and a great smoothie recipe book, that really helps you to learn how to maximize the nutrients! There was also a great t-shirt, but da
little monster kid took off with it and I never got a picture of her in it, and now she's claiming she doesn't know where it is! But I think it had to do with the cute logo on it, that had the title of one of her favorite songs in it:
I sampled 3 of the nutrients:
LOL- feel an 80's throwback moment coming on? Go ahead, sing the song. I'll wait.
Feeling better now? LOL
I sampled 3 of the nutrients:
Made from beets, green tea, ginseng and a healthy dose of B12, it really does give you sustained energy for the whole day! It also is great for maintaining a healthy blood sugar level! Because the energy is being derived from natural products, sourced together for all day use by your body, there is no jittery, fuzzy feeling! You just have a LOT more energy! I found that their Apple Carrot Smoothie with zucchini, lemon and nut butter, really helped to keep the energy going all morning, and I was able to skip lunch without feeling hungry!
I wasn't too sure about this blend- dandelion, artichoke leaf and a berry I had never heard of! Come to find out this combination (the berry is a Chinese species of berry) actually detoxes your body and promotes healthy liver function! That is something we can ALL use, especially the more stressed we get (and the more likely to be eating on the run and with fast food!). And an added benefit was my skin clearing up. Who knew? The berry can also help with your vision and concentration! AHA- great for the kids for back to school! We added it to the Honey Berry Buzz Smoothie, with blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, and almond milk, for a lunch time smoothie that really seemed to give us all a pick me up, and reduce illnesses!
As you know, I'm a HUGE fan of taking Turmeric everyday. I have taken Turmeric pills for 3 months and I can tell the difference within hours if I skip a dose! You really have no idea what your body may be fighting on a daily basis- you may have developed a sensitivity to certain foods (thanks peri-menopause!) or have a very minor infection, whose symptoms you can't really see, or feel, yet. By taking the Turmeric, you give your body the help it needs to fight infection or deemed infection, at the cellular level. It also helps your body fight off the effects of stress and unhealthy eating! Now you know you could use help there, right? It may seem odd, but I've found adding it to my iced coffee everyday (which is also flavored with a honey based chocolate I made), seems to be giving me more infection fighting! With our wacky weather, (92 degrees one day, 62 the next), I should have had 3 Summer colds by now. Nope- not a one! Even Miss Grace has been cold free (I've been sneaking some into her iced tea- thank heaven she thinks it's just another green tea mix!)!
The Vitamin C nutrient booster is made from blueberries, oranges and cranberries, for a super rich Antioxidant based Vitamin C that helps your body's immune system! Dad is starting to use it and claimed it gave him a bit of a pick me up in the am!
The MegaFood nutrient boosters are available at your natural food retailer (check the website for your closest one). The MegaFood line also included vitamins, mineral supplements, children's products and even probiotics! FYI, the nutrient booster powders are good for 3 months, once opened.
