Supplements & Super Foods!
Everybody has their opinion on this topic but I believe in supplementation. Even if you are eating 100% raw, grow most of your own food, sprout sprouts and down 4 cups a day of them, and green juice daily – everything organic – doing everything right – we have polluted air, soil and water, soil erosion, produce that sits on trucks and loses potency by the time you eat it. Depending upon the organic soil used, the grower may care about truly supplementing the soil or not so much so the product is going to be varied.
People are People. You have the all in folks, who do everything to build their health and never vary or cheat from what they know is the very best, the folks that power vegan on week-ends and the junk food vegans, folks who are way too busy to step back, buy a great juicer (see my website/blog) and juice every day when there is work and family concerns. And you have the folks not yet ready to give up meat eating but perhaps want to be healthier or kinder to animals and the planet so they work on that issues one plate at a time.
It takes more time and thought to eat correctly and it takes a huge mind shift. This is significantly daunting at first. Like anything we do, it does become habit and it does get easier. I promise you! My favorite story from when I first went vegan was trying to fix something at home for my executive chef husband that didn’t have meat or dairy in it. He took one look at the kitchen island and said ‘Well, you got me (gesturing to the plethora of foodstuffs on the counter) I have zero clues as to what we are having for dinner.’ I had a really rough time at this. Eating vegan and healthy can certainly be done with diligence, but throw in travel, then it really gets complicated. This is WHY I rep for 3 product lines and when I locate a great cookbook, or a way to grow sprouts easier, I post about it.
Regardless of how you eat today, I believe we all need supplements based upon our individual body and lifestyle. Links are below but here’s a snapshot of the super greens Bioceutica, Essante and Miessence offer you:
www.bioceutica.com/puretemple – Bioceutica has superfood capsules with great greens in it. All you do is pop two capsules and *boom* done for the day. This has great stuff in it, such as Resveratrol, from red grape skins, shown to be highly anti-aging, Spirulina, ginger and turmeric. This is easy peasy to travel with. There’s no muss or fuss with carrying around powders to mix into something.
www.EssanteOrganics.com/Puretemple – Offers a combo pack for $97.00 or you pay $50.00 for either their Earth Greens or $47.00 for Super Reds powders. They also offer capsules specifically for the Earths Greens where you get 270 capsules per bottle for $72.54 which is 90 servings. This line is a mix of both certified organic and wild crafted produce.
http://www.miessence.com/puretemple/en/category/1/skincare – This line is both USDA and ACO certified organic. It doesn’t get cleaner. Their superfoods are a trio of Probiotics (InLiven) Alkalizing (Deep Green) and Antioxidants (Berry Radical). The Antioxidant one tastes like chocolate, there’s organic cacao in it, YUM! These are
In Summary – Comparing the Miessence, Bioceutica & Essante:
Miessence: For $75.95 you can purchase their Probiotic, Alkalising or Antioxidant powders. These are their superfoods and they are excellent. All 3 may be purchased for $204.95. Micessence also does periodically offer a 30% off or, if your spend level is high enough they give you that. Either power is 105g of product, about 30 days.
Essante : Offers a combo pack for $97.00 or you pay $50.00 for either their Earth Greens or $47.00 for Super Reds powders. They also offer capsules.
Bioceutica – Offers SuperPower3 in capsule form, $40.95. While there is no wheatgrass, there is spirulina, resveratrol from grapes, kelp, numerous botanicals and this would be a great on the go supplement if you are not inclined to make juices and smoothies or on days that you don’t, such as when traveling perhaps.
Miessence is 100% certified in their Super Foods and the green alkalizing food contains Chlorella and Spirulina and Wheatgrass, ALL HUGE with Hippocrates Health Institute where I took training. Essante powders are a mix of both organic and wild crafted non GMO. You get a lot more product, 200g and for less. From my perspective, Miessence is a better superfood offering in quality. But, some folks will want the savings and more product that is still a great product with Essante. Or, speaking personally for what I do, I get the Miessence organics superfoods in powder form. I scoop the Deep Green onto my raw salads and mix it into my salad and dressing and its delicious. For the Berry Radical, I use that like a hot cocoa, mix that into some hot water at the office and …delightful. For on the go I also use the capsules but I buy the Essante because for $72.54 I have a 90 rather than a 30 day supply. Both products are great, it depends upon what greens you want.
