Dollar Store Supplements

This is a bit startling.... I don't shop at the dollar store very often, so when walking by this rack I was shocked to see a number of different supplements. Of course Magnesium being one of them. Now I have to say, there's nothing I want to consume at the dollar store; I mean it's one thing if you're buying a kitkat bar knowing it's unhealthy. But when you're buying supplements??? The problem is, most people don't know all supplements are not created equally. I didn't when I was ta...

Antifreeze and Ingredients

The problem here is that so many people think all magnesium supplements are create equal. I can’t tell you how many conversations I’ve had with people that say ‘I’m good, I already take a Magnesium thank you’. Then to find out they’re taking something like this in the picture, because it’s cheap and seems to last forever. So I did some research after snapping a pic of the list of ingredients and it’s startling to find out some ingredients would be similar to what they use in ANTI...

Why we Designed our own Beeswax Candles

I was going to walk down this isle to search for ingredients on these candles but I decided to pass instead. Honestly these toxic fumes give me a blistering headache if I spend even a short time around them. I avoid these aisles at the grocery store and the few times I visit a mall I always walk to the other side if we’re passing a Bath and Body Works type of store. Which is why we designed our own beeswax candles for anyone else that has issues with these smells. I mean we all ...

The Truth About MCT Oil

Here’s an example of what I talk about when we mention our organic pure C8 MCT oil.This one I found at a Health Food store. As you can see on the back this is a combo of C8 and C10.C8 has all the benefits that you’re looking for. Companies often ‘water down’ MCT oil because of the cost of the C8 with other chains.You’ll often see C10 and C12 combo which is an even lower quality product (think of the brand they sell at Costco - which is why it’s so cheap).We sell our pure C8 for 27.99 and 2 for ...

You should have a VERY good idea of what’s in the bottle you are taking

Just yesterday I went to a practitioners office and before I left they recommended some supplements. To be honest, I almost felt obligated to buy. Not that they were pushy, just my own perspective. I thought maybe I'd disappoint them if I didn't purchase their recommendation. Of that they would think I didn't trust them for whatever reason. It turned out when I flipped the bottle around it had an ingredient I don't exactly approve of. Which is the main reason I passed. I wasn't about to d...

Protein Supplement Ingredients that you can Trust

Unfortunately I wouldn't say you can actually 'trust' many supplements in the protein industry, certainly not without reading ingredients. Which is why we got into the supplement industry in the first place. Colouring, msg/preservatives, artificial tastes, and flavours. All which create inflammation/chronic pain, digestion issues and more. As you can see we put a lot of time and effort into our ingredient formulation which is why we have a combination of fermented, organic and sprouted....

Gut Health and Fermented Ingredients

It's important to read the ingredients when it comes to digestion, gut health and fermented ingredients. Fermented ingredients are hard to find because better quality ingredients cost more to make which means the company will make less of a margin at the end of the day. And let's face it, when it comes to most protein supplements, more about their bottom line than improving health. The lack of quality ingredients at the grocery store and with so many not reading the ingredients - we hav...

Why You Can’t Change Minds

I remember when I was starting out, I was young and inspired and enthusiastic about changing the world. I wanted to tell anyone who would listen about toxic ingredients and how detrimental they were to your health. I had such a hard time with those that didn't want to listen and learn. In fact I was shocked to find out a couple things: A. More times than not people didn't seem to want to know the truth. More than that, when I shined light on a subject, topic or more particularly in this case...

Protein and Superior Ingredients

Our Vanilla Protein had only been out just over a week and we already had a handful of people write in saying things like: I can't believe your protein doesn't bloat me, I've tried all kinds and it's all the same'.Protein supplements usually give me a stomach ache but this doesn't.I think I'm starting to have more energy after one of your shakes, I usually feel sick to my stomach after one but I keep drinking it because I was told to get more protein in. This is attributed to one thing. S...
