Super Food Supplements

by Don
(Toronto, Ontario, Canada)


I make a considerable endeavor to eat healthy food, and I use super foods and supplements as well. It certainly hasn't harmed my health.

I recently started using a product called Vega Complete Whole Food Optimizer. It's much better than the protein powders I used previously. It not only has lots of protein, but a fair amount of dietary fiber, good fats, and supplements meeting the daily minimum requirement.

The main ingredients are as follows: hemp protein, pea protein, brown rice protein, whole flax seeds, chlorella, Inulin from chicory root, maca root, digestive enzyme blend, and a berry mix with blueberry, raspberry, cherry, marion berry, and a pro-biotic blend.

This of course is in addition to the supplements. The product has given me an energy boost, and has helped me to get over a little winter flu.

Although using supplements might be controversial, the controversy is really about how much, not whether or not supplements are beneficial.

Personally, I like healthy lacto-vegetarian food, super foods or food concentrates, and enough supplements to ensure that I will have a sufficient intake of nutrients.

When it comes to children, flavor makes a difference. It they don't like it, they won't eat it or take it.

Even adults are that way. A friend of mine recently visited me, and I offered him a serving of Vega, and he couldn't stand the flavor. But he's always willing to drink vanilla or chocolate flavored whey protein drinks and meal replacement drinks.

There's lots of healthy foods, super foods, food concentrates and supplements that are healthy choices, but will people consume them if they don't like the taste? I'm a different story. I go by the ingredients more than the taste, although I really enjoy a nicely prepared meal or snack.
