I have a love-hate relationship with supplements. On one hand, it’s touted as a great way to round-out your diet and ensure you’re getting all the necessary micronutrients your diet might be missing. On the other hand, research seems to change daily on their value, potency, and benefits.
As a result, I try to get all my vitamins and minerals from my diet rather than supplements. The one exception? Whole food supplements. There are some options out there that will provide you with a supplement form of a number of whole foods, superfoods, and spices or herbs.
Enter a current favorite – Detox Organics.
This is a serious powerhouse of nutrients, vitamins, and minerals. And bonus? It’s DELICIOUS.
As I talked about in my DAO Labs post – Reading ingredients is incredibly important when it comes to supplements. Each scoop contains 10 lbs of veggies, fruit, herbs, and plants. So what’s in the mix?
- To help detox & cleanse – Wheat Grass, barley grass, alfalfa, chlorella, horseradish tree leaf, and peppermint
- To promote alkalizing & energy – Spinach, spirulina, kale, broccoli, rockweed, coconut water, and kelp
- To provide digestive support – Carrot root, beet root, ginger, dandelion root, lemon balm, fennel seed, turmeric, pineapple, acai, aloe vera, cayenne, and goji
And those are all ORGANIC.
Needless to say, I was excited to give this a try.
Will a supplement overcome an unhealthy diet? No. Will it give you all the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients your body needs on a daily basis? Nope. But the right supplement can do just that, supplement a healthy lifestyle by rounding out your nutritional intake. I use something like Detox Organics to ensure that I’m hitting my micronutrients each day, without having to try to eat each of the ingredients in the above lists.
That’s why I’m so thrilled to announce that I’ve joined the Detox Organics team as an ambassador! That means that I’ll be able to offer all of you a discount!

Note: You should discuss your dietary and supplement needs with a doctor, naturopath, or nutritionist. Your diet, genetics, levels of activity, and allergies or intolerances can all impact your body’s absorption rates and you may require something different.
Have YOU tried a whole food supplement before? Would you?
