Today I'm reviewing some products sent to me by a friend. They come from the companies Longevity Power and Ancient Sun Nutrition. I received a bunch of super food powders made by Longevity Power, and a couple raw chocolate bars made by Ancient Sun Nutrition.

The super food powders are ultra smooth and I've been adding them to my smoothies in the morning for an extra energy boost and increased mental clarity, as well as faster recovery after exercise. My fave smoothie recipe right now is 2 bananas, 1 orange, 1 cup frozen pineapple, 2 cups water and 1 tablespoon spirulina powder! The raw chocolate bars didn't last very long - I ate them in two days and enjoyed every bite. One was minty and the other included blue green algae... sounds weird, but trust me, it's delish.

Among the powders I received, there was maca, spirulina and goji berry. I also am experimenting with the red asparagus root powder which is supposed to alleviate stress. And finally there's one bottle that apparently has over 60 super foods in it... woah, man. That's the one I like adding to my smoothies. When I share it with friends, they say they notice they feel "cleaner" or "clearer". 

As I always say, products like these are not necessary to achieve optimum health - but if they work for you, then they can definitely be a useful and effective tool. They are, in fact, concentrated high quality nutrition which is effortlessly absorbed by your body. Besides, they're fun to try and delicious to taste. Just remember that they are supplements; and ultimately long-lasting, sustainable health is found from a plant-based, whole foods diet with adequate water, sleep, sunshine and exercise.

Elizabeth-Hippy Mom, Hello you Emily, Wow Awesome powders each and everyone of these have so much medicinal effects that are so healing to many, I have been a Master Herbalist for over a decade now, If conventional medicine wasn't so standardized in the States then it would be super cool if people would restore there bodies with natural means such as herbs, eastern medicine techniques, eating a raw or semi raw mostly vegan diet then I believe there would be a different type of person meaning the bodies vibrational frequencies and natural intuitivity would enable a smarter, healthier, stronger, live longer type. Well anyways have a celestial evening... Peace Out!
