If you’ve been following us on social, you’ve probably seen posts featuring oodles of recipes containing our MegaFood Nutrient Booster Powders. This Berry Beet Energizing Smoothie Bowl. This vegan, vitamin C infused Naturally Sweetened Lemon Sorbet. These balancing Chocolate Chunk Maca Energy Bites. YUM, right?
The good news is these mouth-watering creations are as tasty as they are good for you, and a bunch of that goodness comes from the hefty boost of nutrition they get from the featured inclusion of our Nutrient Booster Powders.
First, a history
A number of years ago now, we rolled out four unique powdered formulas chock full of whole foods, nutrients, and amazing botanicals and called them Nutrient Booster Powders. The notion behind the Nutrient Booster Powders was to gather together all the hard-to-find ingredients to support well-being in a convenient ready-to-use powder that can be added to your daily smoothie, shake, or juice.
Want to support a healthy inflammation response, but getting your hands on fresh turmeric, holy basil, and tart cherry not gonna happen*? Daily Turmeric powder to the rescue! Looking to show your liver some love, but don’t happen to have dandelion and burdock in the cupboard*? Daily Purify has you covered!
And it turns out, these powders not only help you up the nutrition of your favorite smoothie without turning your trip to the co-op into a wild goose-chase, but allow you to do so without taking yet another tablet.
The phenomenon of pill fatigue
Virtual show of hands if you’ve found yourself staring at your morning multi (and probiotic and D3 and turmeric…) trying to muster up the desire to actually take them... but you Just. Can’t. Even. I’m referring to a phenomenon called pill fatigue, where the routine of taking numerous pills (including both medications and supplements) becomes daunting and exhausting. It’s a real thing. A great remedy to pill fatigue is switching up supplement forms. Normally take your turmeric as a tablet? Make the switch to powder instead and incorporate it into your post-workout smoothie!
Alternative delivery formats are also really important for quite a few of us: I’m talking 40% of the adult US population! This prevalent challenge with swallowing pills represents a physical barrier to getting the supplemental nutrition that we need. But, powders can help!
Today, we offer six unique Nutrient Booster Powders to supplement your day. Whether you’re looking to optimize your smoothie or shake, fit in a little extra dose of support, or can’t (or don’t want!) to take another tablet, Nutrient Boosters offer a great alternative for the unique support you’re after. After all, it’s all about having options!
