What Is Superfood?

Superfoods are simply ordinary foods that naturally contain an extraordinary amount of certain nutrients. Acerola cherry, for example, is one of the richest sources of vitamin C, as well as C complex found in any food: its juice contains 32 times the amount of vitamin C in orange juice.

 

Each of our 13 superfoods is especially rich in one or more nutrients. Combining them into one whole food supplement gives Superfood a broad balance of the many different nutrients our bodies need to be healthy.

 

New Packaging: Our bulk superfood is now premixed.

FAQ’s
Q – Are there any drug interactions with superfood?
A – A couple of the superfood ingredients (alfalfa and chlorella) should not be taken with blood thinning agents. Other than that, the other ingredients have no known drug interactions.
Q – Is superfood safe during pregnancy?
A – Yes, superfood is safe for pregnant and lactating women, as long as she is not taking blood thinning agents. (See the question about drug interactions above.)
Q – Are the superfood ingredients organic?
A – Yes, most of them are organic. The sea vegetables (spirulina, chlorella, and purple dulse) are technically wildcrafted or “grown without chemicals” as is the acerola powder. Wildcrafted simply means those ingredients are harvested from the wild rather than cultivated.
Q – I have heard that Chlorella is such a good extractor that it can have toxins already in it if the growing conditions aren’t pristine. What are the growing conditions of your chlorella?
A – Our chlorella is grown using the dark culturing method, which is inside, so the chlorella is not exposed to pollution that can be brought by rain, animals and bacteria. Our chlorella does not need to be broken to increase digestibility. It’s thinner and softer and has about 80% digestibility without breaking.
Many other chlorellas are produced in outdoor ponds, which leaves the product exposed to possible pollutants and other influences like un-ideal temperatures and weather.
Q – What is the maximum temperature the superfood powders reach during the drying process?
A – All of the ingredients are dried at temperatures at or below 105 degrees.

 

Superfood Reviews

I’ve been taking Bulk Natural Foods’ Superfood for a year and it’s been a HUGE energy booster. It usually gets rid of my headaches within about 20 minutes and boosts my immune system, too. I mix it either with plain water or a 75/25 mix of water and cranberry juice (sweetened). The kids take it happily in this blackberry/raspberry/chocolate/coconut milk shake ;)

I don’t care at all for the taste or texture of superfood, but it just makes such a noticeable difference in the way I feel.

My husband and I have been using “home-made” Superfood faithfully for the past few months  The results have been astounding!  Except for the Niacin rush that we periodically got from Dr. Schultz’s superfood, we cannot tell any difference.  And we LOVE the price!     (And the discount we are going to receive for making this promotional offer available to the community! Ha!)

We were on a monthly mail out service with Dr. ________’s company to receive their superfood product.  We were happy with it, and thought it was the only way to get this product until I talked with Erin.  She said she used to get it in bulk and I could make it myself.  I asked if she would get it for me and she did.  We noticed right away the excellent color.  We compared it to the other product and saw the difference.  The other looked like it had sat in a warehouse for a long time.  It was dull looking.
Then we tasted the difference.  It was much fresher!
And most important far less expensive.  We have ordered several times now and it has been consistent in quality and freshness.  We will never order from the other source again.  I am glad I talked with Erin about super food.  We feel great and so does our budget!
Thanks Erin!

I just started using superfood faithfully, and I’m amazed at the change in my energy level!  Wow!  When I was still bouncing around the house at 9:00 at night, my husband decided to start taking it too!
We mix it in plain water or fruit juice. The kids like it in juice, but it’s not too bad plain either.
And one more thing. Superfood is really helping me go… must be the beets!

I have never been able to grow nice long fingernails, since taking Superfood my nails have grown and are stronger then they ever have been!! If Superfood does this for fingernails I know it is doing a whole lot more on the inside!!
Thank you!!!

I use the superfood in my green smoothies.  I mixed 1/4 c of each together in an container.  I am a high raw food vegan.
Benefits:
anti-aging
regular eliminations at least 2 per day
clearer skin
energy/ youthful – I feel better now than in my 20’s
I go to hot yoga 3 to 4 times a week, take a spin class, and walk/jog several times a week.  I would do more if I had more time.

I started taking Superfood faithfully several weeks ago, and the first thing I noticed was an increase in my energy level. Wow! It’s like I’ve added a couple extra hours to my day. My children are thrilled because I’ve been able to ride bikes with them when I’d normally be starting to droop.
The next thing I noticed is that my immune system is stronger. Normally, that little cold I was feeling last week would have had me coughing and stuffy-headed by now, but my body fought it off and I’m feeling great!
And there’s one more thing – even though I’m well past my teen years, I still have problems with acne to some degree. Since taking Superfood, I’ve had a much clearer complexion.

I bought the sample size recently and I’ve noticed stronger nails that are not as easily split. I figure if it is strengthening my nails it has to be helping me inside as well!

Superfood has helped me with my overall health. I don’t get sick very often anymore and if I do feel a cold coming on I take extra and I recover very quickly. I also have more energy. I can tell my body has more of what it needs since I’ve been taking it. I’m really glad I started taking it. I also give it to my kids too in their smoothie. They don’t get sick often anymore either. It’s worked well for our whole family.

    I have a question about the Superfoods powder you sell. Is the sample of 12oz enough to take and make a difference? I am interested in it but wasn’t sure if that small amount would be enough to take and notice a difference.

    • Bulk Natural Foods says:

      Hi Erin,

      I would have to say yes, the sample is enough to notice a difference. Personally, I notice a difference in my energy within minutes of taking a scoop of superfood. If I’m feeling drained, it only takes 10 minutes or so to feel re-energized. I also take it to relieve headaches, and again, I can tell right away that it’s making a difference. We also see major improvements in our daughter’s acne within days when she starts taking superfood regularly.

      Long term, many people see other improvements that you couldn’t notice right away, such as fingernails growing healthier or increased immunity. But overall, I think you’d be able to tell if it’s helping with just the sample. Depending on how much you take, it will last from two weeks to a month.

    Well I think I am sold!

  • Angie says:

    Why I like it? Well, I used to be on all kinds of medication. I took them for arthritis, asthma, reflux and last year I was extremely anemic. About two years ago I began taking a product called Zija that changed my life. Over the course of six months I was in little pain and was able to go off of all but one pill a day. It was amazing and if it had not helped me personally, I would never have believed it. So when I became very anemic and also had to have surgery I did not want to have to take tons of iron pills and other medications after I just stopped taking so many. I did take some for a while, but then I discovered your Superfood. I stopped taking the iron and other supplements which had been making me sick and added Superfood to my daily routine. My iron counts continued to go up and I felt really good. I can’t prove it, but I’m sure the super nutrition in Superfood helped my recovery. When I don’t take it I feel like something is missing. I know it is not some miracle cure, but I feel like it really has made a difference I can feel. My husband takes it too. We mix it with juice and 1/4 tsp cinnamon every morning along with our Zija morning supplement.

  • Laura says:

    Hi,
    I have been adding 1.5 T to smoothies daily for about 3 weeks. I have noticed my nails have been stronger in that they are not as affected by landscaping, gardening and cleaning as they had been. Also, I have noticed more sustained energy during the day!

  • Ginger says:

    I have been using Superfood for several months. One of the most immediate things I noticed was the amount of energy I gained on the very first day. This is a natural product so I didn’t expect to notice something right away, so I was very pleased when it made such a strong difference. I have always been someone who is concerned about healthy eating so I maintain my weight and eat organic foods and many fruits, vegetables and wild caught fish when ever possible. However, I found that I lost energy in the mid afternoon regularly. I put about a tablespoon of Superfood into my fruit shake in the morning and my energy level is maintained through the day. It is really quite amazing!

    In addition to the energy I’ve also had relief from headaches too. I had headaches that sometimes turned into migraines and Erin mentioned I should take some as soon as I felt one coming on. I was very pleased to find my headache just disappeared when I took it. I use it for a pick me up when the heat and humidity take a toll on me, or if I have an unusually active day and it helps me immensely. One more added bonus is that my finger nails seem stronger because they are not splitting like they used to. This green powder is strong tasting because it has so many different organic greens so I recommend you mix it into a fruit shake or a fruit juice.

  • Cathy Tickle says:

    Hello,
    I was wondering, you said in your article that people on blood thinners should not take this, my husband is on plavix, which in essence a blood thinner/ makes it slick. Can we get this without the 2 ingredients that are bad if you take thinners?
    Thanks,
    Cathy

  • Sheila Fucci says:

    Do you know how many calories are in superfood? I’m counting calories and I drink a smoothie every morning with 2 tablespoons of superfood powder and I would like to know how many calories to count. Thanks.

    do I have to drink the super food/juice mix all at once or can I drink it over a short period of time- say 1 to 2 hours?

  • Frances says:

    is there any way to know the actual nutritional value in this super food? as far as I am concerned I believe it is healthy for us but I am using it as a supplement for my husband who has cancer and I really need to have some guidelines on specific nutritional elements…. and calories if there is any way to get it. Thanks, we have only used this for 2 days and already we realize we have a supplement that offers real benefits to our energy level. It’s amazing how it has an immediate affect.
    Thanks,

  • Nina says:

    I was interested in purchasing a very large quantity but I am greatly concerned about any Egyptian and Chinese goods. Do you test frequently for toxins?
    If you can alleviate my concerns here I would purchase.
    Thanks.

    • Hi Nina,

      Our supplier just recently made the decision that anything they purchase from China they will test for heavy metals and anything they bring in from Egypt they will test for pesticides since there have recently been problems in these two areas. Having said that, we have been purchasing these materials from the same source for years who works with the same grower in each country. These growers are certified organic. Many other manufacturers have been purchasing these same items from our supplier and no material has been rejected because of pesticide residue concerns after their own in-house testing.

      Since the decision to start testing was very recent, it means that only new lots coming in since June 1st will be tested. Our supply right now has not been tested, and I’m not sure how far in the future you’d need to wait for tested spinach and beet powder. You’d need to check with me before ordering, and I could tell you.

      I checked with our supplier today, and right now, they have some Chinese spinach out for heavy metals testing, and no metals have been found. The supplier also mentioned that they try NOT to purchase items from Egypt unless it’s absolutely necessary because testing is so expensive. Items that are coming in from China pretty much only grow in China so they don’t have a choice.

      I hope that helps somewhat. Feel free to check back with me in a month or so to see if our supply of spinach and beet have been tested at that point.

      Erin

  • Nina says:

    Erin, That helps tremendously!
    Wow. Thanks. Nina

  • Amy says:

    HI there—I was just reading through the ingredients list on the superfood. Is the nutritional yeast fortified with b-vitamins?
