During the past decade, the popularity of super foods has been growing, as more and more people are looking for ways to combat the effects of our increasingly toxic environment, bad diet habits, unhealthy lifestyle choices and the stress of modern living.
Of course, for us vegans, the first question is whether or not the food is cruelty free, because we know that ingesting products of cruelty is not good for our health, on any level.
Of the ones we’ve tried over the years, I cannot say in all honesty that we felt much of a difference. Or at least, not as much as we had hoped we would feel. It’s so hard to know for absolutely sure, as there are many other variables that affect our health. But I do know that we were never that impressed… until recently.
A few months ago, we received a very generous donation of phytoplankton from Ocean’s Alive. Since this product is made by a vegan company and its claims were nothing short of amazing, we decided to try it. We are healthy people to begin with, so I can’t say it cured anything for anyone, but there’s no doubt in the minds of those of us who are experimenting with it that we feel a higher, cleaner energy since taking it, which is especially true for us older folks.
We also like that it’s so easy to take. Just a few drops in a little fruit juice at the start of the day, and we feel the energy boost for hours.
We are grateful to Ocean’s Alive for affording our volunteers the opportunity to use this fine product and for making it available to the growing number of vegans, further increasing the nutritional value of the already power-packed vegan diet.
