On to all things nutritious - and - well - not quite spiritual...

I've been regularly using Nature's Plus "Source of Life" vitamins for some time. Recently I was at Whole Foods and picked up VegLife "Vegan One Multiple." VegLife is produced by Nutraceutical.

  • They have much less in them than the Sourse of Life vitamins but my body seems to be making far better use of them. My skin is more clear. My hair and nails are growing in leaps and bounds.

    I was so pleased, I went back and got their iron supplement.

    While there I discovered Juvo. Juvo is fairly new. It's marketed as a raw food meal. While freeze drying and dehydrating does preserve a lot of the nutrients that cooking destroys, I'm not sure you can honestly call a powdered additive "raw food." I took home a sample packet. The directions say to mix with either water or juice. I mixed it with water. Since it's largely grain based, it tasted like Cheerios.

    The stuff is just packed with nutrients so I immediately got a little lift. Not the kind of lift that you get from sugar or caffeine that is followed by a let down. But a lift that held. So I went back and invested. Juvo is NOT cheap. But one shouldn't expect to skimp out on one's health. No matter how well we think we are eating, we've depleted the earth's resources so our food is lacking.

    I mixed my Juvo in mango juice. I had to add water. Since the powder is mostly grains it tends to stick to the sides of my blender. Mango juice is thick and absorbs less. The water helped. Juice has a lot of sugar in it anyway so it's always good to cut your juice with water.
