So I have been taking Vega consistently one or two times a day for almost a month...and I feel great! I have to say, though, that I find my sleep patterns changing the most. I attribute this to the maca and the digestive enzymes in the whole food optimizer. As I am an endurance athlete I produce a lot of cortisol on a regular basis. Cortisol is a stress hormone whose sister hormones are melatonin and growth hormone. I suspect that because my cortisol levels were so high I was having a hard time falling into deep sleep at night.
Well, since one month on Vega I sleep right through the night (a first is a VERY long time) and feel rested and amazing in the morning.
Here's a shout of to all you raw food athletes out there. Made a fabulous raw 'pasta' sauce yesterday.
1/2 cup sesame seeds (soaked)
1/2 cup sundried tomatoes
1 tbsp lemon juice
half red pepper
pinch of cayenne and paprika
himalayan sea salt or dulse as needed
Add all ingredients in a blender and whirl away. You may need to add a bit of water to help it mix together. Enjoy!!
