Green Adaptogen Means Green Powered Energy!
What is green adaptogen? Well, let me tell you about my search for green super power. Some search for antiques, buried treasure, or gold. However, I search for herbal creations that promise to blast me with energy like a rocket. Therefore, around four in the afternoon, when my mind wanders and eyelids are heavy, I seek a different type of treasure. I want something clean that keeps me humming through my afternoon slump. I have tried almost everything to beat the afternoon sugar blues. And,, humorously, my daughter likes to point out that if I had a dollar for each supplement I tried, I would be wealthy!
Sun Potion Brings it Through Green Adpatogen
Yet, through experimentation, I have earned a wealth of knowledge, and therefore I am sharing two new outstanding herbal formulas that work. These two herbal “nuggets’ may likely become part of your self-care arsenal. They certainly have been revolutionary for me. They are both from the Santa Barbara-based company called Sun Potion. And, the founders use the highest quality organic or wild-crafted’ herbs.
Green Adaptogen by Sun Potion
Green Adaptogen is a green herbal blend of three herbs: Suma, Chlorella and Maca. Suma is a Brazilian root to help the body cope with stress. Notably, these are a natural source of electrolytes and regulate blood sugar and blood pressure. Also packed with trace minerals, Maca is a Peruvian root rich in protein and B12, calcium and zinc. As a result, It increases energy and boosts stamina, which is why athletes love it. Maca also is known to promote sexual function for men and women, as well as increasing libido. Because it can balance hormones, it may help with symptoms of both PMS and menopause as well. Chlorella is a building block of the freshwater food chain. It contains 10% chlorophyll, 50% protein, essential fatty acids. Chlorella is excellent for detoxifying heavy metals.
After adding a teaspoon of Green Adaptogen to a cup of my drinking water, within a half hour, I noticed my head clearing and my energy ramping up in a smooth, steady way. If you sip this instead, you will not miss that mid-day cup of coffee (One caveat: Maca is high in arginine, which can trigger herpes break-outs).
Matcha is Another Super Green
Matcha is a form of green tea, made from whole, young dry, steamed, and ground leaves. It is an excellent source of antioxidants and chlorophyll, and supports immunity. Although matcha contains some caffeine, my experience is that Sun Potion matcha gives me an “all’s right with the world” feeling. Macha seems to elevate the spirit, rather than creating an overly stimulating buzz. If you are caffeine-sensitive, as I am, try using a small amount to begin. Plus, macha can also be added to a protein smoothie.
In future blogs, I will share other products that my clients and I are successfully incorporating into our daily program. If you experiment with Green Adaptogen, matcha, or any other Sun Potion products, I would love to hear your story!
Happy Gut Makeover Cleanse!
On another note, as we lean in to the fourth week of the Happy Gut Makeover Cleanse, it is wonderful to hear that it’s getting easier to live without sugar, wheat, dairy and junk food. If you have never done this program, I hope you’ll consider joining us for the Winter Cleanse. Don’t worry – you won’t starve. Hot soups and stews abound!
I am super excited that BOTH my books are available in audio form. Find them on my website for download, and or ITunes and Amazon Audible. However, after a successful run of the audio version of Dare to Detoxify! my clients convinced me to record my new book, It Takes Guts To Be Happy! They love listening as well as reading. And, I hope you do, too!
