Balanced B Complex & kale: Can it get any better?

Balanced B Complex & kale: Can it get any better?

| Abigail McShinsky | September 23, 2016 |


Why Kale?

It’s particularly high in vitamin A and vitamin C: just one serving has more than 100 percent of your recommended daily value for both vitamins, and it’s also a rich source of minerals, delivering calcium, iron, magnesium, and more*!

Two BIG loves

It isn’t a secret around the office that I’m a HUGE fan of our product Balanced B Complex. In fact, it was an introduction to this product 7 years ago, when I worked in a local health food store, that first ignited my love for MegaFood.

Another thing high on my list of all-time-favorites is kale. My household has a kale addiction, and not just my husband and I, but even one of our cats, too! He will cry and cry next to the refrigerator BEGGING for some of that green gold. Like him, I’ll eat it raw (in salads), but also sauteed, in soups, as chips, on top of veggies burgers, in pastas, and I’ll even find ways to sneak it into my breakfast!

In terms of things to be hooked on, we could do a lot worse than kale. Kale has a long history in the human diet - it has been eaten since Roman times. It’s particularly high in vitamin A and vitamin C: just one serving has more than 100 percent of your recommended daily value for both vitamins, and it’s also a rich source of minerals, delivering calcium, iron, magnesium, and more*!

It’s B-coming even better!

Balanced B Complex - with organic kale from our newest Farm Partner: Foxy Organic! Foxy Organic is an incredible family-owned farming business with a really rich history of doing it right.

If you’ve been a long-time fan of Balanced B Complex, you’ll be happy to know it continues to provide a balanced ratio of FoodState® B complex vitamins delivered in a variety of nourishing whole foods to promote energy and support the health of the nervous system.* Plus, with the inclusion of 125mg of FoodState® Kale from Foxy Organic, it offers trace minerals and nutrients to optimize utilization of these key vitamins.*

The fine farmers of Foxy

With farming experience dating back to the 1930’s, it is readily apparent that the Nunes family is deeply dedicated to their craft. Their love and passion for growing produce spans FOUR generations...as well as 25,000+ acres!  Chances are, you’ve come across the Nunes’ fruits and vegetables at your favorite grocer under the Foxy and Foxy Organic brand labels - I’ve been happily purchasing their organic lettuce and cauliflower for as long as I can remember!

Today, third and fourth generation Nunes family members carry on the legacy that Tom Nunes began in the ‘30’s, honoring his commitment to the family business through best-practice traditions, state-of the art growing innovations, and land stewardship of the highest degree. We are thrilled that we’ve been able to partner with them to update our beloved Balanced B Complex with the power of fresh organic kale.

Greens get the gold standard

At MegaFood, we’re committed to ensuring that every last leaf delivered from Foxy is handled with the same hands-on care it received at the start. Fresh from Farm to Tablet, Foxy Organic kale retains its quality and goodness, from the moment it sprouts, straight into the bottle, something reflected in the fresh new look of the tablets - check out how green they are!
