When people are looking for that much needed energy boost, the first place that comes to mind is usually the local coffee bar. In the endless search for more energy, it’s quite easy to forget about one of our best sources of sustained energy – plants!
Plant-based energy can come in the form of vegetables such as kale and beets, and the reason why we love these two in particular is because we get farm-fresh kale and beets delivered to our back door by the truck load- they are two key ingredients for our energy-boosting products Balanced B Complex and Blood Builder®.
Balanced B Complex
A supplement designed to promote overall energy and the health of the nervous system*, our Balanced B Complex provides our signature B vitamins, and since we believe your body recognizes real food, we deliver those Bs with nourishing real food, including 125 milligrams of organic kale per serving from our trusted farm partners.
Now, why kale you may ask? Well, kale has been eaten since Roman times, and contains vitamin A and vitamin C. In fact, just one serving of raw kale (67 grams) has more than 100 percent of your recommended daily value of both vitamins, and also contains a variety of minerals.*
Getting enough iron is vital to oxygen transport within the blood.* Optimal oxygen means optimal performance. Our Blood Builder® supplement is now clinically shown to increase iron levels and reduce fatigue without nausea and constipation, and is gentle enough to take on an empty stomach*†! We make it with nourishing, real food, like beets and oranges, plus folate and B12 for healthy red blood cell production, and vitamin C to support iron absorption.*
Did you know that beets have a long, rich history? Beet root was first cultivated by the Romans, and in Greek mythology, Aphrodite was said to eat beets to help retain her beauty.
As more people turn to plant nutrition for energy power, they are also looking for supplements made with real food to fuel their lives. Both Balanced B Complex and Blood Builder are Certified Vegan by Vegan Action (Vegan.org), making these formulations trusted choices for vegetarians and vegans alike. Just like all our supplements both of these energy choices are certified glyphosate residue free as well!
Like the idea of building your energy from the ground up? Don't miss a single tip.
If you know that you need or have a preference for the methylated form of B12, give our Methyl B12 a try.
