Our Key Ingredients
We’ve selected the cleanest, most nutrient-dense ingredients on the planet to include in each of our Boost Blends. Each blend contains the following key ingredients:
Clean Plant-based Protein
We use a combination of organic pea, hemp, and pumpkin seed protein in our Boost Blends to provide all the essential amino acids your body needs exclusively from plant-based sources. Every cell in the human body has protein and we need it to keep our muscles, skin, hair, and bones strong. Plus protein is a great way to help balance blood sugar and keep you full longer.
Organic Acacia Powder
Acacia powder comes from the sap of the Acacia tree which is native to parts of Africa, India, South America, and Australia. High in fiber, it acts as a prebiotic, feeding your healthy gut microbiome to support digestive health. Acacia fiber can also help to balance blood sugar levels.
Organic Inulin Powder
Inulin powder is a prebiotic fiber with many health benefits. It helps to improve blood sugar and blood cholesterol levels and nourish the microbiome to improve intestinal health. It also supports immune function, acts as an antioxidant, and may play a role in preventing colon cancer.
Red Maca Root
Maca root is a Peruvian superfood that has been used medicinally by the people of the Andes mountains for thousands of years. Maca root is a good source of amino acids, fiber, and plenty of vitamins and minerals including Vitamin C, iron, and copper. It is also rich in plant bioactive compounds that are responsible for many of the medicinal properties it offers. People have used maca to help with energy, memory, mood, hormone balance, and its anti-inflammatory properties. Red maca is especially high in these health-promoting nutrients. We use maca in both our Lean Green and Berry Beautiful Boost Blends.
Organic Apple Powder
We all know the saying “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” and this is used for good reason. Apples are high in vitamin C to keep your immune system strong, and they are full of powerful antioxidants to help fight chronic inflammation. They are especially high in the antioxidant quercetin which may reduce the risk of some types of cancer, heart disease, and neurological disease and help keep your immune system strong. Apple powder is used in our Lean Green and Lacuma Boab Boost Blends
Berry Beautiful Boost Blend
Berries are one of the healthiest foods you can eat, so we use a blend of some of the tastiest, most nutritious berries in our Berry Beautiful Boost Blend.
Strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries are all chock-full of antioxidants and polyphenols known to promote good health. People who eat diets high in berries have better cholesterol levels and lower risk of heart disease, decreased risk of metabolic syndrome, and lower levels of chronic inflammation. Regularly eating berries may also offer protection from developing certain types of cancer. Recent studies show that the polyphenols in berries also help to balance the gut microbiome and improve gastrointestinal health.
Acai has been popping up everywhere in the forms of bowls and smoothies, and for good reason. Acai berry comes from the Amazon rain forest and it is packed with antioxidants and polyphenols. Studies show that acai may help fight inflammation, and protect you from cancer and heart disease!
Lean Green Boost Blend
Organic Alfalfa Leaf Powder
Alfalfa has been used for hundreds of years in traditional forms of medicine like Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine for its healing properties. We use it in our Lean Green Boost Blend to both strengthen and soothe the body as well as support the digestive tract. We often eat alfalfa sprouts in salads, but the dried powered in our Boost Blends provides an easy way to get this nutrient-dense food regularly. Alfalfa is high in plant compounds called saponins which can help to improve cholesterol levels lower blood sugar and lower cancer risk.
