As a long time user and advocate of Vega's Whole Food Health Optimizer, I was hesitant about this "new kid on the block". Is Vega One really an improvement?
As a Nutritionist (and compulsive label reader) my priority is to understand the nutritional benefits, but also the points of difference between one product and another. My comparison of the changes in formulation are based on objective criteria, and actual quantitative differences.…Continue
For years people have told me they feel amazing when they follow the nutritional principals in the Thrive book series. Many have been able to stop taking medication, lower cholesterol, reduce body fat, reduce sugar cravings, improve sleep quality and mental clarity and boost athletic performance.

In an effort to re-juvenate both mind and body, I recently made the decision to reclaim my weekends. I distributed my long list of weekend to-do's throughout my week and started making 'weekend goals' instead; such as "feng-shui my book shelf" and "sign up for a new yoga class."

With truly calming effects because I know it can sometimes be difficult to unwind on the weekend, our…Continue
Hello Vega Community!
I just wanted to share that I finished my mega vega smoothie. It included whole food optimizer, sport performance optimizer, maca powder, strawberries, raspberries, banana, and orange juice. Today I got complete protein, fiber, antioxidants, probiotics & enzymes, increased my mental & motor performance, and replenished my electrolyes.
What's your smoothie of the day?
