"At Raw Green Organics, we believe that without our health and planet – we have nothing. It's serious business and we're in the business of making it better." There are statements that they make in their vision which are put bluntly and very differently that most other companies. It really makes you think when they say..."Reduce the ubiquitous presence of toxic chemicals in our natural environment (air, soil, oceans, etc), man-made environments (homes, schools, offices) and our personal environments (industrial pollution inside our own bodies)"
An important part of a detox and cleanse is something that is gentle enough to use daily without feeling sick or stuck in the bathroom for the duration of the cleanse. Each product helps in it's own way one day at a time. Now although I have not started on a complete juice/organic diet, I have been replacing my morning meal and snack with a mix of the Super Greens and Vanilla Protein. It has been an easier way for me to slowly drop my meal/calorie count.
"Organic Super Greens is a daily raw vegan drink mix packed with a healthy, antioxidant-rich organic vegetable blend. It's rich in EFA's, Amino Acids, Phytonutrients and Fiber. A blend that is naturally low in glycemic index and is suitable for diabetics." Being that I was diagnosed recently with having a high complex sugar count as well as something called Sponge Kidneys, I have been trying to lower my carbs and any type of sugar intake. THIS makes it easy!
Unlike other Protein powders, the Organic Vegan Vanilla Protein is 100% vegan, organic, gluten-free, dairy-free, and soy-free! Not only do you not have to worry about the normal fillers but you know you are drinking something which even though it is satisfying, it isn't filling making you feel bloated in any way! I love using the BlenderBottle® Classic™ Shaker to mix these powders with water each day as the metal mixer works better than the screens you get in other shaker bottles.
The capsules all help in different ways as well. The Super Probiotics help "maintaining healthy flora balance in the gastrointestinal tract". The Super Fiber provides a natural blend of allergen free fibers to help with healthy bowels. Super Aloe keeps from feeling bloated and relieves constipation. It has a natural laxative effect. None of the above made me feel sick after taking AND most importantly I was not rushing to the bathroom constantly. I felt like I went normally when I was ready and not stuck sitting in there for days!
Mixing the Greens and the Protein only has 118 calories in each serving/glass. You know I'll be honest about how bad most dieting drinks taste and this one was great! You can mix your powder with juice, water or any type of milk. I've been mixing mine with water and it tastes like a vitamin water but I'm sure it would taste like a fruit juice or flavored milk when mixed with the others.
I have to say again this wasn't like most cleanses where you are stuck in the bathroom for hours and days. I actually enjoyed taking this. I definitely noticed a difference in my skin with a reduction in blemishes, less oil, and no dryness. I even noticed a difference in my natural energy. I did notice I felt less bloated and as if I lost a little water weight. Most importantly, I noticed a major reduction in appetite! I felt full most of the day and was completely content with snacking and small meals.
Available to purchase/Cost: $120 RawJuvenate Complete Organic Detox 2 Week Starter Kit
Recommendation: As much as I think this price is kind of outrageous, I actually liked this product for once and it worked for me. This says a lot since I have tried several non-exercising options to lose weight. They also have available several other super foods and products which I'd like to try although I was quite happy with this one!
