In a nutshell, to boost my energy, cognition and to reduce stress. Organifi Red is packed full of antioxidant rich polyphenols and brain boosting adaptogens.
Adaptogens are a select group of herbs (and some mushrooms) that support the body's natural ability to deal with stress. Studies on animals and isolated neuronal cells have revealed that adaptogens exhibit neuroprotective, anti-fatigue, antidepressive, nootropic and central nervous system stimulating activity. In addition, a number of clinical trials demonstrate that adaptogens exert an anti-fatigue effect that increases mental work capacity against a background of stress and fatigue, particularly in tolerance to mental exhaustion and enhanced attention.
Polyphenols are micronutrients that we get through certain plant-based foods. They're packed with antioxidants and provide many potential health benefits. Polyphenols have been shown to improve or help treat digestion issues, weight management difficulties, diabetes, neurodegenerative disease, and cardiovascular diseases.
Organifi Red, along with all the other Organifi juices, is made only with gently freeze dried, vegan, organic whole foods. It’s best to consume polyphenols and adaptogens through foods naturally containing them, instead of through artificially made supplements. It is also sweetened with monk fruit so it does not spike my blood sugar. Monk fruit is my go to sugar replacement. I love the fact that Organifi uses monk fruit in all there products.
Here is the ingredients list:
Pomegranate juice powder
Blueberry juice powder
Beet root powder
Reishi mushroom extract
Acai juice powder
Siberian ginseng powder
The ingredients also include artichoke inulin and some flavourings: natural berry acai flavor, malic acid, and monk fruit extract. All the ingredients are Organic and vegan.
Organifi Red tastes amazing and is simple and convenient. It is far cheaper then juicing at home and I can take it when I am out and about in stressful situations....when I need it the most. I find the cordyceps mushroom gives me a noticeable energy increase and cognitive boost. I take it almost every afternoon whether I am at work or on my way down a mountain.
