Top 3 Energizing Superfoods

Who hasn’t ever felt that lull in the middle of the day? Or just woken up feeling sluggish? We’ve been there and we have just the superfood solutions for you. These healthy alternatives might even replace your coffee and energy drinks…

#1. Cacao: Raw Chocolate Energy!

Contrary to popular belief, cacao contains negligible amounts of caffeine. However, the extraordinary bean from which our beloved chocolate comes contains theobromine, a stimulant that does not affect the nervous system the way caffeine does (think: energy spike!). Instead, theobromine is known to support heart health1 and create a slow release of energy throughout the day.
As if a boost of energy wasn’t enough, cacao is loaded with anandamide, a neurotransmitter which stimulates feelings of happiness while blocking feelings of pain and depression. Cacao also contains phenylethylamine (PEA), the pleasure chemical found in the brains of people in love—that’s why chocolate and romance go together so often.
Our cacao is raw, organic, non-GMO, and tested for purity to ensure it’s the cleanest cacao out there. Mineral-rich and full of antioxidants which support the immune system2, cacao is one of the most energizing superfoods on the planet!

I dip my banana in a tiny bowl of these in the morning, yum! Super-charged!” – Mary

#2. Maca Powder: Incan Powerhouse!

Maca is a superstar root vegetable that has a solid reputation as a powerful enhancer to energy, stamina and even libido. Used as a food and medicine in South America for centuries, maca is said to have been consumed by Incan warriors before long journeys and even battles. Today it is recognized as an adaptogen which means that it can help the body deal with stress and provide energy without overstimulation.
Our raw, organic, non-GMO maca is grown high in the Peruvian Andes in areas untouched by pollution and low-temperature processed to bring you the highest quality maca available.
Maca Powder:
“My hubby was beginning to lose his stamina because of work and not eating properly. I then had to take over and start making sure he'd get proper rest and eat right. He all of a sudden start feeling vibrant again, and looking so much better! All thanks to his green veggies and the magic energy food (Maca). I have recommended it to many friends and family! Thank you!” – Very happy once again in Chicago, Illinois
Red Maca:
“This turned the clock back 20+ years and restored male energy in my 50s that I had decades earlier. My wife also takes it and has no menopausal troubles.” – Re-energized husband
Maca Extreme: (3-4 times the concentration of regular maca!)
“I liked the texture and rich flavor. It’s been awhile since I had regular maca, but do feel a bit more zoom zoom than I remembered from the regular maca. I have never had a power/energy drink before, with all the amazing superfoods and products like maca. This is the way to go.” – Jordana 




#3. Platinum: The Power of the Elements!

Element #78 on the Periodic Table, Platinum (Pt) is a precious earth metal. It is a vital element for cellular longevity and vitality, exhibiting a powerful ability to greatly increase energy levels. Like its close neighbor, Element #79, (Au - Gold), platinum molecules stimulate brain cells to provide deeper, more restful sleep patterns. While gold is best taken in the evening for relaxation, platinum is best taken in the morning to provide energy throughout the day.
Our platinum by Mother Earth Minerals is a water-soluble, ionic (electrically charged) liquid mineral in angstrom form, which are 10,000 times smaller than colloidal molecules. These minerals are small enough to not just absorb into your body, but assimilate into your cells, which is the key to fully utilizing the benefits of mineral nutrients.
“Platinum greatly increased my energy level and also gave me a deep sense of wellbeing” – Sara
