Onnit Introduces EGN Powerfood

fOnnit Introduces EGN PowerfoodI first wrote about this product back in May of this year. Aubrey Marcus was on Joey Diaz’s podcast talking about Onnit’s upcoming products and he mentioned something about a new product that would rival Green Vibrance. Seven months later, this product has finally come to fruition, and it’s called Onnit EGN Powerfood.

Back then I had no idea what Green Vibrance was, so I did a little research and found out that it’s a powder that you mix in water or juice. It’s a superdrink that provides you with a wide range of vitamins, nutrients, and minerals that a lot of us don’t get through our daily eating habits. Having the ability to drink some Green Vibrance and get everything you need from one glass is appealing. The problem according to Aubrey is that Green Vibrance doesn’t taste good. At all. If you’re like me, drinking something that tastes disgusting doesn’t make me want to drink it, regardless of how good it is for me.

So what Aubrey set out to do was to create something in the same vein as Green Vibrance, but have it taste good. The result is EGN Powerfood, with the EGN standing for Earth Grown Nutrients, a favorite phrase of Mike Dolce. It works in much the same way as Green Vibrance: you scoop some of the powder into a glass of water or juice and chug it back.

So what’s in this EGN Powerfood? Literally too much stuff for me to type out here, but I’ll break it down into categories: there are an assortment of antioxidants, a variety of greens, a rainbow of fruits and vegetables, a blend of ingredients designed for detoxing, and a blend for digestion to cap it off. It’s honestly a little unbelievable when you look at the list of ingredients and think that somehow they condensed all of this stuff into the plastic jar of EGN Superfood, and that somehow you can obtain the benefits of these ingredients by drinking one glass of the stuff per day.

I’m the type of person who doesn’t like eating many vegetables. I’d rather blend and drink them in a smoothie than eat them with my meals, but I try as best as I can. Knowing that you can mix up a drink and obtain the same benefits is definitely appealing. Now some of that stuff I force myself to eat I can take off the menu and substitute it with EGN Powerfood instead.

For those who care about gluten and GMOs and all those other food-related buzzwords, EGN Powerfood is vegan-friendly, non GMO, and it doesn’t contain any dairy, gluten, or soy.

Onnit 180 Drink Mix Now Available!

Onnit 180 Drink Mix Now Available!I’m on holidays this week so I’ve been away from the computer, but I thought I’d type up this quick blog post to let everyone know that Onnit 180 drink mix powder is now available! I first wrote about this months ago–late spring or early summer, if I remember correctly–so this is a long time coming. I’ve been really excited about this product!

So in a nutshell, Onnit 180 is a rejuvenating drink mix that’s filled with vitamins and nutrients. I first heard Aubrey talk about Onnit 180 on Joey Diaz’s podcast The Church of What’s Happening Now and he said that it is a great product for anyone who suffers from jet lag, or for when you’re hungover. It’s actually like a few Onnit supplements combined: you get the cognitive enhancing and neurotransmitter benefits of Alpha Brain, the adaptogens from Shroom Tech Sport, 5-HTP from New Mood, along with minerals to boost the immune system and some new ingredients as well. Basically Onnit 180 is great for any situation where the body feels stress, like jet lag and hangovers of course, but when you’re feeling down or when you need Alpha Brain’s effects to hit you faster than taking the supplement in capsule form.

Onnit 180 powder drink mix is now available on the Onnit website and it comes in boxes of 10. It’s priced at about $30 for a box of 10, which can seem expensive, but keep in mind this isn’t Kool-Aid. It’s also not medicine, but you should treat it that way: taking it only when you need, not when you’re thirsty. Having a box at the office, at home, and one for the suitcase will ensure that you’re always covered when stress from flying, drinking, or working becomes overwhelming.

What is Green Vibrance?

What is Green Vibrance?I first wrote about Green Vibrance a week ago after Aubrey Marcus, the brains behind Onnit, mentioned it on a podcast. He spoke about how Onnit was working on its own version of Green Vibrance because he considers it to be the most important part of his supplement regimen. But still, I was left with questions like what exactly is Green Vibrance and how could I benefit from taking it?

Green Vibrance is designed to provide nutrition to your whole body. It’s packed with vitamins, minerals, and nutrients that most people aren’t obtaining in their current diets. Green Vibrance also helps efficiently deliver those vitamins, minerals, and nutrients to every cell within the body. It also promotes digestive tract health, which in turn helps the body absorb all the aforementioned vitamins, minerals, and nutrients better than ever.

There’s no way that I could even begin to tell you about all the ingredients in Green Vibrance. For that, just click here for the full list and prepare yourself for a long read. Done? OK, good! As you can see, everything is measured in micrograms with each serving being a total of 12 grams. You add this 12 grams of Green Vibrance powder to water and then chug it back. It won’t taste good, but that’s not the point. It will make you feel good.

Keep in mind that I’m only scratching the surface in terms of what Green Vibrance contains and how it can benefit you by adding it to your daily supplement regimen. I’m actually quite intrigued by this product and plan to order some soon. Also, knowing how important Green Vibrance is to Aubrey and learning that Onnit is working on its own version has got me very excited!

Onnit Stron Bone and Joint Review

Onnit Stron Bone and Joint ReviewHave you ever heard of “strontium” before? I hadn’t either, at least not until I did some in depth research into Onnit’s Stron Bone and Joint supplement. It turns out that strontium isn’t the element they made Wolverine’s bones and claws out of when he was created in a lab. In fact, strontium is a naturally occurring mineral found deep inside our bones.

What Onnit’s Stron Bone and Joint provides you with is increased bone strength and the ability to recover faster than you would if you weren’t taking it at all. Studies have shown that Stron Bone and Joint decreases the risk of fracture by 41% and, when combined with calcium, could increase bone density by 30%. This makes it an ideal supplement for athletes, the elderly, the accident prone, and those with physically demanding jobs.

Stron Bone and Joint doesn’t focus solely on the bones, but also the connective tissue between the bones as well. Three ingredients specifically work towards promoting joint health: N-acetyl-D-glucosamine, methysulfonlymenthane, and hyaluronic acid. These three ingredients prevent degradation of tissue between bones, help to regenerate tissue, and work as an anti-inflammatory.

It’s all very complicated and I’ve done my best to explain it in layman’s terms, but to be honest I don’t quite understand how exactly it works, I just know that it works. My bones simply feel stronger and more dense. I’m not sore in my legs and ankles after running when in the past I would be in a great deal of pain. If you struggle with any bone or joint related issues, I encourage you to give Onnit’s Stron Bone and Joint a try. With its 30 day money back guarantee, you have nothing to lose except aches and pains.

Onnit New Mood Review

Onnit New Mood ReviewLet me preface this Onnit New Mood review by saying that New Mood isn’t an anti-depressant. It shouldn’t be considered medicine if you have been diagnosed with depression, and you certainly shouldn’t go off any medications that you are taking for depression in favor of New Mood. That being said, if you find that you’re not as happy or relaxed as you should be, New Mood could provide you with a boost to lead a happier, less cloudy day.

Serotonin is a brain chemical that is linked to being happy, feeling positive, and generally being in a good mood. New Mood was created with a variety vitamins, minerals, and amino acids, including 5-HTP and L-tryptophan. 5-HTP is the precursor to serotonin, which helps improve mood and positivity. L-tryptophan is converted by the body into H-HTP, and then into serotonin. What this provides is a slow release, helping you to feel good throughout the day rather than just after taking the supplement.

A few of the other ingredients in New Mood include magnesium and vitamin B6, both of which help the body feel better, as I wrote in yesterday’s Foods That Fight Depression blog post. In addition, New Mood includes chamomile–perhaps the most relaxing herb found on earth–Valerian root, known for aiding in sleep, and jujube (or zyzyphus), an extract that helps relax and reduce stress.

As you can see, Onnit’s New Mood supplement is packed with natural ingredients, all of which have a proven effect on having a positive outlook and maintaining a relaxed mood throughout the day. I have been taking New Mood for a few months now and can definitely attest to its ability to make me feel better. It helps me to remain calm and focused when in the past I would have been flustered and scatterbrained. At the end of the day, I find I’m no longer stressed, and I’m able to decompress, relax, and get a good night’s sleep instead of worrying about what happened today and what’s going to happen tomorrow.

Foods That Fight Depression

Foods That Fight DepressionI was diagnosed for depression a while ago and while I could have started taking pills to feel better, I opted against it. I don’t want to go the rest of my life having to take a pill each day to feel better, so I looked into the alternatives, such as supplements like Onnit’s New Mood and Alpha Brain to improve my mood, and foods that help battle depression as well.

I’m definitely an emotional eater, and when I’m in a funk, there’s nothing I crave more than junk food. Unfortunately though, it’s a vicious circle, as I feel better at first but ultimately end up crashing and hating myself for giving into my cravings. Fortunately, there are some foods out there that will have a positive impact on your mood.

B vitamins—specifically B6 and B12—have been found to have a positive impact on depression. Foods that are rich in B6 and B12 include eggs, which are also packed with protein and will help you feel satiated longer and stabilize your blood sugar. Foods that are rich in magnesium, such as kale, spinach, peanuts, almonds and suflower seeds are full of magnesium which helps with serotonin production, a chemical in the brain that helps us feel good.

Adding green tea to your diet can also have a relaxing effect on the body, despite the caffeine content which many people find makes them edgy. L-theanine is an amino acid found in green tea that can improve focus while helping the body to remain calm. I begin each day with Bulletproof Upgraded Coffee to kick start my morning and have a big cup of green tea at the end to help me wind down, and I’ve found that it truly does help me relax and unwind.
