Why I Bought This

Unopened bottle of super food supplement powderAbout 3 weeks ago I started feeling physically off. I mean REALLY bad. It was getting to the point where I would come home from work and not feel like doing anything. Any sense of motivation would leave me and in all honesty I would just sit in front of the TV.

My body started feeling toxic and my energy level had completely plummeted. I’m partly to blame here, because I had started a bad habit of relying on fast food for meals on work days.

I would be the 1st person to tell anyone NOT to live that lifestyle, but it’s easy to slip into when you are working so much and have no time to eat healthier.

I am a very driven person so this is not like me. I have goals, but was getting frustrated that I didn’t feel like keeping house or even one of my favorite activities – reading. Yes, even reading became overwhelming. I just wanted to rest all the time and then pretty soon I felt this way at work.

But the worst symptom was the achiness in my joints and the muscle tenderness. Bending and lifting became a real problem. If I had to squat down to pick up something it would seem like it would take me 20 seconds to get back up. My thighs would feel so sore afterward.

Here I am just 31 years old and feeling like my body’s breaking down. Like I have the body of someone in their 80s. I even had a 21 year old coworker making fun of how slow I was.

It made me feel awful so I had a wake up called and set out to find a solution for myself and immediately started taking my vitamins and trying to eat healthier. The problem I found was trying to get all of the nutrients that my body requires. Being on the run and trying to eat healthier was too time consuming, exhausting and like I said earlier – coming home and preparing salads and vegetable dishes is not what I felt like doing.

It was at this time when I was doing some research online and getting ready to restock my inventory of supplements (vitamin C, D3, Magnesium, etc) that I read about Organifi Green Juice. It’s a green drink that comes in powder form. It was a little pricey and I didn’t know what to expect, but the benefits sounded amazing so I took a chance.

My Experience With Organifi

20160927_171309Organifi is made for people who need an immune system boost, who are feeling sluggish, who want to eat healthier, who desire to improve cognition and feel rejuvenated and experience better health.

This was definitely me, but I wasn’t sure if it would really be that effective since so many things are just hype.

You’ll see in the video above, me unpacking my first bottle of Organifi Green Juice. I received it about 3 days after ordering it and the first thing that I noticed about it was the size of the bottle. It was much larger than I had expected. Plus, to my surprise it came with it’s own scoop!

Note: I have read some reviews where people were complaining about the bottle not being “completely full”. This is not the case, rather the powder has “settled”. This is typical with bottled supplement powders. So no need to be alarmed.

What it smells like: This super food powder smells really good to me personally. I describe it as “minty” and with an aroma of “alfalfa”.

How it tastes: Fantastic. The taste is silky, refreshing and very smooth and it tastes wonderful. I actually find myself savoring every drop, but my girlfriend (who is a picky eater) does not like it at all.

What it makes me feel like: Every time I drink it I feel calm, my body feels cool and I just feel good instantly. It’s hard to explain, but I have noticed other people mention the same. It feels refreshing and like you are ingesting something very healthy and as it should! The ingredients are high caliber and are covered in further detail a little further down in this Organifi review.

How To Drink It: You simply mix one scoop to 8 – 16 oz of water, almond milk, coconut milk, smoothie or rice milk. I personally use just water and drink it 1 – 2 times a day. Most days I drink it just once, but occasionally I drink a second glass in the evening just to unwind. I still find that even after this it seems to last for a long time.

Currently: I have been using it for a couple of weeks now and I feel completely different. I feel light, vigorous and on track with where my health should be. Not going to guarantee the same for you, but this is how I personally feel.

My one major complaint is that it’s a little expensive. At the same time, considering the quality of the ingredients and how expensive super food powders can be – it’s probably priced right. Just in a perfect world this would be half the cost.

My Verdict

I definitely feel an improvement. I have more stamina, more energy, I feel more upbeat and have been more productive. Granted that I started cutting out the junk food, have been drinking more water and I still take my vitamins. But I honestly believe that Organifi has plaid a major part in my well-being.

Although not necessarily cheap, I feel that this product is beyond worth it and I certainly don’t have “buyer’s remorse”. It’s my new favorite beverage!

What Is It?

A bottle of OraganifiOrganifi Green Juice is a super food supplement that comes in powder form. It’s quick to mix up and easy to digest and was developed by Fitlife.tv founder Drew Canole. If you’re unsure of who he is – let’s just say that he has over 300,000 fans on YouTube, 1.7 million Facebook followers, used to be 35 lbs overweight and has built a fitness team that has touched many, many lives according to sources that I’ve read online.

This little super-food powder that has everyone talking is loaded with essential vitamins, nutrients and minerals that are difficult to absorb through normal diet alone.

For anyone feeling sluggish, having trouble concentrating, struggling with stress, suffering from a poor immune system or who simply wants to detoxify the body – some might tell you to give Organifi a try.

I, personally, would have to agree. It’s made with organic ingredients that have been gently-dried; which helps preserve all of the nutritional value that is packed into Organifi’s array of powerful herbs.

This powdered greens supplement is a nice formula that aims to prevent illness, disease, to boost the immune system, promote relaxation & calmness, help with blood pressure, improve mood and much more. But remember that most things “all-natural” are rarely ever approved by the FDA that you should take such ideas with a grain of salt.

Still – if you have a huge amount of faith in the health perks of mother nature’s natural resources then you might want to give this one a go.

What’s In Organifi Green Juice?

Taking a closer look at this super-food supplement we find some very interesting ingredients.

It can be nearly impossible to get all of the nutritional requirements that the human body needs everyday. For instance, take into account how many servings of fruit and vegetables you would have to consume each day to maximize your body’s health. Most of us know this, but rarely do we find a solution to this problem. Luckily Organifi Green Juice has you covered by containing these key ingredients…

Supplement ingredients, facts & nutritional label for Organifi

Supplement ingredients, facts & nutritional label for Organifi

Ingredients

Chlorella

Chlorella is a fresh-water algae that is primarily farmed in Japan and Taiwan. It is extremely high in peptides, amino acids, vitamins and protein. It is commonly used for the prevention of cancers and to boost white blood cell counts. It can also be used to introduce healthy bacteria into the digestive system and to reduce ulcers.

Moringa

Also known as “The drumstick tree”; Moringa is extremely high in potassium, vitamin C, B-6 and magnesium. It is typically used for anemia, arthritis, stomach & intestinal issues, high blood pressure, bacteria and fungal-related infections. It is also taken to boost the immune system and libido and may help with treating snake bites, gum disease and athlete’s foot.

Spirulina

Rich in chlorophyll, B vitamins, antioxidants and also very high in proteins – spirulina is a powdered form of algae. It is extremely high in iron, copper and omega-3s. It’s harvested in safe water environments essentially as pond scum. Yes – that’s right! but don’t be alarmed. Even though that may not sound appealing, spirulina is amazing for the immune system and is a vegetarian-friendly source of iron and nutrients.

Mint

Mentha or simply known as “mint” is a well-known herb that comes in many varieties. It originated in Asia and was a staple of ancient medicine; especially useful in the treatment of certain stomach issues. In fact there may be some evidence to suggest that it can help with the easing of Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Mint can pack a whopping 1620 micro-grams of carotene and 27 mg of vitamin C.

Red Beet

I personally can’t stand beets, but have grown up hearing all about how healthy they are for you. One of the good things about drinking Organifi is that I don’t have to worry about the taste (or the smell). But this strange, little root is packed with goodness. They are very high in potassium, vitamin C, B-6 and magnesium (one of my favorites for taking care of stress and sleeping better).

Matcha Green Tea

If you’ve never heard of Matcha; it’s literally powdered green tea leafs. This means that rather than disposing of the leafs after they have been used to make the tea – they are instead finely ground and the actual leafs are what you are consuming. Very high in antioxidants, all of the vitamins and B vitamins that you would expect and rich in catechin polyphenols (a type of antioxidant-rich compound); especially one that has gotten a lot of attention in the medical world – EGCG (epigallo-catechin gallate).

Wheatgrass

Wheatgrass is very popular in the juicing world, but the good news with Organifi is that it’s already done for you. Wheatgrass contains as many as 17 amino acids, contains lots of protein, selenium, amino acids, electrolytes, flavonoids and phenolic acid.

Ashwagandha

This plant has many, many names, but is more commonly known in the Western world as Ashwagandha. It is used in Ayurvedic medicine where it is known as “Indian Ginseng” and has a plethora of applications. It is used for improving brain function such as boosting cognition, supporting liver health, reducing fatigue, ulcers, lowering stress levels, fighting insomnia, lowering blood pressure, handling anxiety and promoting an overall calmness in the body.

Turmeric

Maybe you’ve cooked with it before, but you might not have known just how healthy turmeric can be. It’s commonly used in Ayurvedic medicine, but is starting to get the respect it deserves here in the Western world. Turmeric is very high in magnesium, iron and vitamin B-6 and has strong anti-inflammatory properties. It also may be beneficial in staving off depression.

Coconut Water

Organifi is infused with coconut; which is a good thing, because it’s very healthy. It’s believed that it may help in the prevention of Alzheimer’s disease and coconut also packs a powerful punch of manganese, potassium, zinc and amino acids. It also acts as an appetite suppressant (if you’re trying to lose weight), keeps you hydrated and is very rejuvenating for the skin.

Price

For some Organifi will seem like a steep purchase. After all the current going rate is $69.95 per bottle. But when you break down the cost structure it proves that this is a good deal. You could buy the ingredients separately as I have done, but it’s far more costly. Plus the ingredients that go into Organifi are gently dried and very fresh.

The other packages range from 3 – 6 bottles per shipment ($149.95 – $279.95).

Where To Buy Organifi

It has yet to be available in stores, but there are currently two places online where you can order Organifi Green Juice. The first is the official website at http://www.organifi.com and the second option is through Amazon.

5 Homemade Energy Drink Recipes

Homemade energy drink recipes that boost productivity and keep you sharpIf you find that you wake up most Monday mornings and have a hard time getting the day going; then you may be inclined to turn to the aid of an energy drink. Many people enjoy a few cups of coffee in the morning to bring them to a full state of alertness, but it’s understandable that not everyone enjoys this iconic beverage nor feels that it’s enough caffeine to get them going for the day.

Energy drinks have become a staple of many American’s diets, but there are some alarming truths that have come forward since beverage companies started producing and marketing these types of caffeinated drinks.

  • The average energy drink contains caffeine levels ranging from 72 – 150 mg per serving. Your standard cup of coffee contains roughly 134 – 240 mg of caffeine. But the problem is that an energy drink typically contains 2 – 3 servings per container; meaning that you are actually drinking anywhere from 200 – 450 mg of caffeine in one go. Not exactly healthy; especially when you consider that you are drinking all of that caffeine at once.
  • Consuming up to 400 mg of caffeine daily is not necessarily bad, but should be avoided by children, pregnant women and especially mothers who are nursing.
  • An extreme intake of caffeine can cause nervousness,arrhythmia, irritability and stomach issues.
  • Some energy drinks can contain 80 or more grams of sugar per can.
  • According to recent surveys – an increase in blood pressure has been associated with children who consume energy drinks

Healthier Alternatives

So if these types of beverages aren’t exactly the most desirable way to give us a boost then what can we do about it? Are there any healthier alternatives such as making our own energy drinks?

The answer is yes. Below you will find recipes that will show you how to make a homemade energy drink. These recipes are healthier substitutes and rely more on nutrition rather than just caffeine and non-approved FDA herbs alone.

Final Thoughts On Homemade Energy Drinks

As you can see – these recipes contain all-natural ingredients and contain natural forms of sugar. Some of them require lemon juice; which is alkalizing and all but one contain honey – a better form of sugar. Many cleanses that are good for optimal health contain the combination of lemon juice and honey.

The idea here is to instead of loading up on caffeine to get you through the day; to instead rely on the nutrients found in fruits and natural juices. Feed the body well and can give you the energy that you need to live a productive 24 hours.
