Superfood Energy

No More Headaches Or Fatigue
by Erin Otto

Have you ever been looking forward to a fun or important event, but you felt so tired that all you wanted to do was head off to bed? Or maybe you got a headache and just couldn’t focus on something that mattered to you?

This happened to me on the Fourth Of July last summer. We had just enjoyed a fun-filled day, and we were getting ready to leave for the fireworks. I was supposed to be making some fun snacks and packing up a picnic to take along, but instead, I was sitting in a comfy chair feeling like I just  c o u l d   n o t   m o v e.  All I wanted to do was go take a nice long nap. I had a headache too, and just imagining the loud BOOM, crackle, BANG at the fireworks was making it worse.

But the kids were looking forward to the fireworks, and so was I.

I had gotten relief from headaches before by taking Superfood, so I forced my sleepy self to get up and take a spoonful in a glass of orange juice. It tastes kind of grassy, but the pick-me-up I experienced that day taught me how NOT to get caught in an energy slump. In only 20 minutes, not only was my headache entirely gone, but I also had plenty of energy! I was so happy! No need to disappoint the kids. No need for a nap. I was ready to go!


I had so much fun at the fireworks that night, knowing I should have been at home taking a nap, but instead, I was out enjoying a great evening out with the six most important people in my life – my husband and my five kids.

I don’t know if Superfood will work for everyone like it did for me, but I’m telling you, I felt great that evening! I shared some with my mom when she was worn out from a day of playing hard with our kids, and she was ready to play some more in about 20 minutes too. She’s been taking it ever since then. Here’s her story:


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.

Suggestions For Getting Over The Taste Of Superfood

Superfood has a green/grassy flavor that many people really don’t like. But it’s not at all bad mixed into juice and even better in a fruit smoothie if you don’t mind it being green. Here’s Julie Wall’s recipe for the Superfood smoothie her children love. Or add it to your favorite smoothie combination.

5 Immunity Boosters


5 Simple Immunity Boosters: Beat Colds and Flu Naturally This Season By Erin Otto
Isn’t it handy that citrus fruits ripen when we can all benefit from some extra viitamin C to help fight off colds? In addition to eating lots of good oranges and grapefruits, our family has collected this simple arsenal of cold and flu remedies that has enabled us to avoid or at least curb some of the bugs that go around each year. We hope this helps you out.

LemonGarlic Tea

Don’t let its name scare you off. Garlic Tea is really more of a homey and comforting honey and lemon concoction that’s medicinal because of the addition of some garlic (that you don’t really notice). Garlic is a proven natural antibiotic; ready to seek and destroy many strains of bacteria, fungi, and viruses. And sipping a mug of garlic tea is a pleasant way to get the wonders of garlic working to end your sniffles in a jiffy.

This recent testimony from one of our members perfectly sums up what we love about Superfood:

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 blackberry/raspberry/chocolate/coconut milk shakes ;) I don’t care at all for the taste or texture of it, but it just makes such a noticeable difference in the way I feel. Hope this helps!  -Julie

coconut oilCoconut Oil

Coconut oil has a special ability to break down and actually destroy lipid-coated viruses, including influenza. Because coconut oil’s antimicrobial medium-chain-fatty-acids mimic the fatty acid coating on these viruses, the coconut oil gains entrance into the virus, where it weakens the virus until it falls apart. Interesting, heh?  The recommended dose is about 1 tablespoon of coconut oil with each meal. You can cook with coconut oil, add it to smoothies, or try one of these fun recipes to get your intake up to the 3 TBS. per day quota.

Plague Tonic

Plague Tonic takes a bit to make, but it’s inexpensive and potent. An all-around elixir for what ails you. It can instantly stop a cough. It will shorten the duration of any cold. And it can help keep you healthy when you’re surrounded by sick people. Take it by the dropperful, by the spoon, or by the shot glass, depending on how brave you are or how quickly you need to get well.

Echinacea Plus TinctureA friend taught us how to make this simple tincture many years ago, and we’ve been using it ever since. Most tinctures are made in alcohol (alcohol extracts the beneficial properties from herbs best), but because we wanted to give this tincture to our children, we’ve always made it with vegetable glycerine, a naturally sweet substitute for the alcohol. We don’t sell the herbs or the glycerine, but our friend Vlad does. Visit his store, after you get the recipe here.
