122 – Add More Whole Foods to your Life – My Interview with Erin Stokes, ND

Targeted Whole Food Nutrient Booster Powder from MegaFood

Dr. Erin StokesI like MegaFood as a company. I like MegaFood as a product. I like the MegaFood philosophy about supplements. I have used MegaFood supplements for 40 years. They were different then and they are different now. There has been a single minded focus with MegaFood over the years that has always recognized that whole foods are the foundation of good nutritional health. Whole Foods have always been a  part of their products. MegaFood simply does things differently than any other company in the supplement industry. My goal is to give you access to their experts and their process, so you can see a little more clearly what they do. Then you can decide what products to try.

Today we are talking about how to get more whole foods in our diet, that have specific benefits. Most of you are already taking a bunch of supplements. You may also be drinking your smoothie or fresh fruit juice every day. Your diet may consist of very good foods. These are all great things to do. But you may also still have nutritional needs. MegaFood has created an easy way to add concentrated whole food nutrition booster powders to your diet.

In this interview will Dr. Erin Stokes, I will discuss these unique MegaFood Nutrient Booster powders. What makes these whole food powders so different is the process used to create them. The way a fruit and vegetable powder is created has everything to do with the nutrients that remain in the processed powder. MegaFood is the only company that I know that makes their whole food powder in their own plant. They are the only ones I know that use the refractance dryer to create their food powders.

SmoothieAlmost all food powders are created by freeze drying or spray drying. These methods cause a greater loss of nutrients than the methods used by MegaFood. Dr. Stokes describes this difference. In order to make superior products and in order for you as a consumer to have the best possible outcomes, you must make distinctions in the market place. It requires that you understand the differences between products, ingredients and companies.

These distinctions are usually not obvious to the consumer. For example most consumers would not be able to distinguish between supplements that include food powders. How is one different from the other? The same concern exists for the types and sources of supplements. It is why HealthQuestPodcast.com exists. We want you to be better informed in order to make better choices. Better choices lead to better results.

MegaFood Nutrient Booster PowderWhy is this important when it comes to whole foods as supplements.?Whole foods are important for the thousands of nutritional compounds that exist in foods. When we take supplements we are often taking isolated nutrients. There is nothing wrong with this. Targeted higher potency nutrition is important. However we cannot ignore the benefits of the many other nutritional compounds that exist. Whole food powders allow us to consume many more fruits and vegetables in our diet.

The MegaFood Nutrient Booster powders and an easy way to get targeted support for four nutritional needs. They are available in four products, Daily Energy, Daily C Protect,  Daily Purify and Daily Turmeric. I suggest that you visit the MegaFood website and learn more about how they bring these farm fresh nutrients. It is truly a different process. Nutrient Boosters are exacty what the name implies. This is an easy way to intensify your whole food nutrient intake. It is an adjunct to your current program. Simply add to your juice or smoothie.
