Superfood Powders For All Your Lifestyle Needs
Designed for Holistic Wellness
Condensed Whole Foods
Every ingredient in our superfood powders are derived from a whole food and condensed to a powder or an extract. No synthetics. Powders are made through dehydration, not heat. Extracts are derived from water and centrifugation, not harmful solvents.
Incredible Greens is mildly sweet and grassy. Some say it has a malt-like aftertaste. It's sweetened with Stevia, and mixes well in water or juice. Incredible Berries has an intense berry flavor that's potent and refreshing.
Every serving of Incredible Greens contains over 1 billion colony forming units of 6 different probiotic bacteria strains to aid digestion. They're blended with digestive enzymes to ensure survival in the stomach.
Incredible Greens or Incredible Berries can be an effective way to improve your energy levels without digesting lots of caffeine. Many customers notice improvements in their energy levels after taking it.
Affordable and Convenient
Our superfood powders cost $1.33 per serving and is good for about 2-3 months after opening. The uncondensed version of the foods would cost much more and be less convenient to eat, to say the least.
A Nutritional Swiss Army Knife
