(NaturalNews) The list of superfood products I consume on a daily basis is a very short list, and the quality
of products on that list keeps getting better each year. You probably already know that when I blend up a superfood fruit smoothie
, I add a scoop of Rejuvenate Berries & Herbs
, which is an extremely delicious, nutrient packed, high-RNA superfood made with real berries. I reviewed that superfood product in February of this year: http://www.naturalnews.com/028242_Rejuvenate_superfood.html
At that time, we were launching Rejuvenate Berries & Herbs
in the NaturalNews Store at a special introductory price which expired a few weeks later, and this superfood product has been carried at its regular (full) price ever since.
Now, a lot of NaturalNews readers may not know this, but the Rejuvenate Berries & Herbs
was actually the second
superfood product formulated by Dr Hank Liers, a brilliant nutritionist who has consistently been decades ahead of the pack on the subject of nutrients and healing. There's another product -- the first
product -- that you've probably never heard about. It's simply called Rejuvenate Plus
The reason you probably haven't heard of Rejuvenate Plus is because it's a hard-core, high-RNA superfood
that's really, really green. It's so green that when you consume this for a couple of days, you turn green on the inside from end to end (seriously). It's loaded with chlorella, organic kelp, spirulina (from Hawaii), chia seeds, nutritional yeast and other high-RNA superfoods.
My big mistakeI may have made a huge mistake
in not talking about this product six months ago, but I assumed it was too "hard core" for most people
. So I just focused on the "Berries & Herbs" Rejuvenate product because it has such a pleasant, acceptable taste, making it more of a mainstream superfood
But one day I was talking to Holly in our advertising department about what superfoods she likes the most (all NaturalNews employees consume superfoods of one kind or another -- it's one of the secrets of our high productivity). I noticed she had a canister of Rejuvenate Plus
(the green stuff, not the berries flavor) on her desk. When I asked her about it, she said that it was her favorite superfood. She would mix a scoop of Rejuvenate Plus with water and shake it up in a Blender Bottle, then chug it as a late-morning snack or early afternoon pick-me-up.
And then she said something that really got my attention. "Why don't we offer this in the NaturalNews Store?" she asked. "Do you realize I have to buy this somewhere else?"
Come to think of it, I realized, so did I!
I was buying Rejuvenate Plus
, too, because I like to use it in my chocolate avocado smoothies
. (Blend up some almond milk, one avocado, one banana, a scoop of X-Balance chocolate superfood, some Boku Superfood and this green
Rejuvenate Plus, and you've got a ridiculously nutrient-packed superfood blend...)
I also started to receive comments from readers and customers who had heard about this other Rejuvenate product and wondered how to get it. So before long we were talking to Dr Hank Liers about how we could carry Rejuvenate Plus in our store.
What's in it? The best high-RNA superfoods
Thanks to the FDA's ridiculous crackdown on truthful scientific information about the health benefits of nutritional products, I can't even tell you much about RNA and why people value it so much as an element in their food. But if you search around for the work of Dr Benjamin S. Frank and his research on RNA, you may find a rather interesting collection of information about why and how RNA is a crucial element for cellular health*.
To deliver RNA, this Rejuvenate Plus superfood relies on chlorella, chlorella growth factor (CGF), nutritional yeast and even RNA extracts of nutritional yeast
; all combined with other supporting ingredients such as chia seeds
(omega-3s), rice bran solubles (much like tocotrienols) and some very high-end configurations of nutrients
such as magnesium malate (not some cheap magnesium oxide) and methylcobalamin (the premium, expensive version of vitamin B12).
It also delivers organic dulse (a seaweed) and organic kelp, both of which are rich in naturally-occurring ocean minerals
The upshot of all this is that Rejuvenate is so nutrient dense and so richly green
that it's just too much nutrition for most people to handle, frankly. This is not a "mainstream consumer" superfood. Your typical Joe Schmo off the street probably wouldn't touch it (he's drinking Diet Pepsi anyway, and he thinks that's good for him!).
When these cops saw my green superfood, they freaked...
People who don't know much about nutrition are freaked out by green liquids. I remember one time when I was serving on the board of a non-profit supporting the needs of local cops in Arizona (yes, I actually used to work alongside local
law enforcement), I actually brought in a blender pitcher full of a giant green smoothie
for an all-day meeting.
You should have seen the cops sitting around the table! They looked at me and asked quizzically, "What is that?" I methodically described all the superfoods that were in it and how this drink would improve performance, reflexes, night vision and reflexes. (This was before Rejuvenate even existed, so this wasn't Rejuvenate in the recipe.) These police officers got really interested and one even agreed to try it
! (Imagine how much healthier cops would be if they actually drank superfoods everyday instead of living on drive-thru burgers... but that's another story.)
My point is that everyday people aren't really into drinking green liquids. Only people who really know nutrition
will gulp down thick green liquids with a smile. People like me! (And probably like you, too.)
My green superfood chocolate smoothie recipe
Truth be told, my own green chocolate smoothies taste amazing
. I add fresh banana, avocado, some stevia, some raw cacao, chia seeds, raw coconut oil, raw almond milk, premium vanilla and some other ingredients along with all the superfoods I blend in. By the time I'm done blending this thing up, it's a green nutritional masterpiece.
No store-bought superfood even comes close to what I blend up in my kitchen every single day. And I wouldn't give up my superfood for anything. This is what keeps me going. It's the reason I can keep writing two feature articles a day while producing music videos, songs, cartoons, animations, interviews... all while running the entire editorial department of NaturalNews at the same time (it takes a lot of energy, believe me...)
I've known for a long time how much I enjoy these ridiculously nutrient-dense superfoods... I just never realized that so many other people wanted the same high-density nutrition that I'm into! I never knew the green Rejuvenate Plus would be so popular!
So now we have it in stock, and they did us a price favor, too
To cut to the chase here, we talked with Dr Hank Liers and as of today, we now have the green Rejuvenate Plus
superfood in the NaturalNews Store. It's here on our specials page right now, in both a single canister and a 3-pack at a significant discount:Click here to see the price on the original "green" Rejuvenate in our store.
We wrangled with them over the price of Rejuvenate, as we insisted in being able to offer it at a substantial discount. (I absolutely despise carrying products at the regular retail price because I always to give NaturalNews readers a compelling reason to shop with us, and saving money
is one very good compelling reason.)
After some back-and-forth, they agree to a strictly time-limited
promotion of 30% off
the regular price on the 3-pack. (It's 20% off for a single canister.) This is the lowest price they would allow us to offer.
So if you want some of the "green" Rejuvenate Plus that Holly loves (and that I blend into my chocolate avocado smoothies), this is the best price you're likely to ever get on it. I very much doubt we will ever be given permission to offer this discount again:Click here to take advantage of the 20% / 30% discount on the original "green" Rejuvenate.
You'll also notice that the Berries & Herbs
flavor or Rejuvenate is back on special in our store. You can pick up some of those, too, if you like that flavor (I use it in my fruit
A couple of important notes
Before you get the green Rejuvenate Plus product, though, I really want to be clear that this is not a product for nutrition newbies
. This is not a "kids" product (although a few kids raised on healthy foods might actually enjoy it). It's not a cheap superfood "filler" product like you might find at retail stores made with soy protein and 50% lecithin.
This Rejuvenate product is for hard-core nutrition fans who value nutritional density over appearance. This is not some "pretty" superfood. It looks like green powder
. But that powder is filled with chlorella, dried seaweed, chia seeds and all the other amazing ingredients (see below).
Rice Protein, Freeze-Dried Vegetable Sprouts Protein (Organic), Hemp Protein (Organic), Sprouted Flaxseed Powder (Organic), Chlorella, Alfalfa Grass Juice Powder, Rice Bran Solubles, D-Ribose, Spirulina (Hawaii Pacifica), Lecithin (High Phosphatide), Nutritional Yeast, Inulin (chicory root), Mannitol, Xylitol (from Organic Hardwood), Cherry Flavoring (Organic), Vanilla Flavoring (Organic), Beet Root Juice Powder (Organic), Vitaveggie (5,000 ORAC/gm - from freeze-dried, broccoli, broccoli sprouts, tomatoes, spinach, kale, carrots, and brussels sprouts), L-Lysine - USP grade, Magnesium (from Mg malate), Magnesium (from Mg ascorbate), Chlorella Growth Factor, RNA from yeast, Vitamin C (from Mg ascorbate), Organic Aloe (ActivAloe 200:1), Ginger Root Powder (Organic), Inositol, Enzyme Complex (Protease/Cellulase/HemiCellulase), Dulse (Organic - Maine Coast), Flower Pollen (Graminex G60), Choline (from bitartrate 41% - coated), L-Malic Acid, Vitamin E (d-alpha tocopheryl succinate), Pantothenic acid (45%), Vitamin B5 Pantethine (20%), Stevia Leaf Extract, Vitamin B3 (niacinamide), Vitamin E (high-gamma mixed tocopherols), Vitamin B6 (pyridoxal-5'-phosphate) (60%), Vitamin K1 (phylloquinone), Vitamin B1 (thiamin diphosphate), Vitamin B2 (riboflavin-5'-phosphate), Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol), Folinic Acid (from calcium folinate) (78%), Biotin, and Vitamin B12 (as methylcobalamin).
