Best Supplements- MegaFood

Because I have been on the quest for truly clean supplements for some time now, I just had to update you all that I have finally found a brand I feel great about supporting! Before finding the MegaFood brand, I was using many of the New Chapter vitamins because they were easy for me to access at local health markets, however, after I learned that they were sold to Proctor + Gamble, I personally wanted to find a new brand to support. While I appreciate that more and more big brands are hopping on the Organic + Natural train, it seems so contradicting for me to support a parent brand that still actively produces toxic products. So, while I applaud P+G for buying these Organic brands, I do hope that they clean up their entire roster to prove they’re not just in this for the trend.

With that being said, after I learned all of the above and was bummed I had to change vitamins, the more I researched about supplements, the more I realized how hard it was to produce a really quality one. Many smaller brands were not testing the products properly and so I was left wondering, will I ever find a brand I feel confident in supporting? Feeling frustrated, I emailed my go to girl, Food Babe to get her input on supplements and which she suggests. Sure enough, she also suggested MegaFood which made me feel even more confident with my choice to switch over to them.

Sun Warrior Organic Protein Powders

If you follow me on Instagram, you will know that I have forever been on the hunt for a protein powder that is not only Organic but also free of any harmful gums. I recently learned that all protein powders have to have a stabilizer in them to be able to be in stores, however, I am also learning that there are some stabilizers that are better than others which is why I was happy to come across Sun Warrior “Warrior Blend” products which are almost entirely Organic and free of any irritating gums. The Original Classic Protein does contain Xanthan Gum, which is derived from rice, however, I prefer the “Warrior Blend” powders as those are the healthiest and most safe in my opinion, stabilized with Konjac Root and Fenugreek Fibers instead.

Sunwarrior “Warrior Blend” Products Are:

  • Made with Organic, Raw plant proteins.
  • Vegan & Raw.
  • Great for healthy weight loss, increased energy, mental clarity and metabolism.
  • Free of solvents, GMOs, radiation, artificial flavors, artificial preservatives, artificial colors, animal products, dairy, egg, gluten, soy, added sugar, wheat, or yeast!
  • Stabilized with Konjac Root and Fenugreek natural fibers.
  • Made with up to 19g of Protein and 0g of Sugar per serving.

As soon as I heard these protein powders were Organic, Raw and free of Xanthan Gum, I knew I had to try them out. Because I prefer to eat Vegetarian, these powders will be able to give me some much-needed protein to keep my body nice and balanced, especially for days where I am short on time.
