I recently discovered the Vega products and love them - thanks!
question - I have Graves Disease, which means I have to be very aware of my iodine intake, essentially reducing it to near zero. I have been using VEGA SPORT vanilla protein supplement but can't find anywhere that lists the iodine content.
if you could let me know, and any other Vega products that might be suitable (iodine free) that would be…Continue

Before this week I already knew about my wheat and dairy allergies, but just this week found out that I am also allergic to corn.
It is my recollection that all the Vega products used to be labeled as "wheat-free, dairy-free, soy free and corn free" but the new, re-designed packages now just list "wheat-free, dairy-free and soy free". Did something change in the way Vega is being produced?
I personally use the Vega Sport Energy powder pre-workouts and Vega One…Continue

As an extreme athlete pursuing the magical place beyond our limitations, VEGA has been a nutritional base allowing me to cross some of those performance and training boundaries. It is my belief that routine and timing, in using the VEGA Sport System products, is key to my ability to move beyond normal recovery and even normal benefits from training.

I've decided to join the Vega community because I wanted to know more about the products and how others are utilizing them. I'm fairly new as a Vega user, my first purchase were the pre-Workout packets; they aren't the best tasting item but they do work, I used the pre-workout packets to help with my concentration during my classes (I'm a university student). Although I didn't like the taste, I continued to use it until summer 2012. I've picked it up again, I'm using the…Continue

Winter is a time to curl up with a blanket or throw on the insulated running tights. Whether it’s cold or wet, your body craves warmth. There is no easier way to get your circulation flowing than adding some savory heat to your meals, drinks and shakes. Some herbs and spices may just have the kick you need to warm up your chilled body — from the inside out.
It’s easy to incorporate more herbs and spices into your day: Add fresh ginger to a hot cup of rooibos tea; when making a veggie…Continue

So we’ve officially rolled into February, and where you are at with those health and wellness goals for 2013? It’s traditionally around this time that we start to let go of the motivation we had at the New Year, only a month ago.
How can you keep the motivation going? I know for me, it’s all in the scheduling and planning ahead.
1. PLAN AHEAD: I do my grocery shopping for the week on Mondays (after a killer Spin class). So Sunday nights, I take stock of the…Continue

When you are shopping for athletic shoes it is significant to understand what you are getting and why there is so much importance on the type of shoe. Designers have taken into deliberation the fact that people want relieve but their feet need different types of needs depending on the sport they play.

From www.myvega.com & Andrea Gnys:
With all of your New Year’s resolutions in place, ‘be more active’ is probably among, in one way or another. While kicking activity levels up a notch or two is a great way to get healthy, it`s important to ensure that you’re feeding your body with the proper tools to support your goals. One of the most important things you can do for your body in general – but especially when starting a new or more intense…Continue

Hey all, I'm new to the "Community" and couldn't find any other posting/question regarding the following:
I am making a weeks worth of the Vega One as I drink them as meal supplements twice a day. My question is whether this is ok to do? Does it take away from the "potency" by mixing a weeks worth in advance? I refrigerate until I need to drink and I usually mix with part water/part unsweetened Almond milk and a touch of stevia, if any of that…Continue

Can someone please tell me how long the mix stays fresh once the container is opened. I am assuming that the expiration date is for unopened containers. Thanks
