Mega Way: The Ultimate Superfood Shake

By Bianca Alexander

If you’re ready to supercharge your health, love the ease of drinking your vitamins, or have a demanding schedule that requires quick meals on the go, you’re probably always on the lookout for a nutritious, great-tasting shake. With a busy travel and work schedule, sometimes smoothies are my best healthy alternative until I can enjoy a solid meal at the end of the day. But not all shakes are created equal: finding one that’s tasty, free of added sugar, easy to make and chock full of nutritious superfoods can be easier said than done.

Over the course of my ten year holistic healing journey as an energy worker, yoga teacher and raw/vegan chef, I’ve tried almost every shake, smoothie and protein powder on the market. I started out swapping fast food with sugary sweet, high-calorie smoothies from Jamba Juice. As I learned more about superfoods, I tried shakes made from powdered wheat grass, kamut, chlorella, liquid algae, and dried berries, then moved up to acai, maca, goji and chia. Lately, as my body becomes less toxic, I’m loving all things spirulina. Alone, each superfood offers great health benefits. But how do you know which combination – and how much of each – is best for your body?  With so many so-called magic foods on the market, it can be challenging to pick one that’s right for you, not to mention figure out where to buy it. Some rare varieties aren’t even available at Whole Foods!

It’s important to experiment with what works best for your body, and a one shake fits all approach may not be for you. But if you’re looking to take the guesswork out of your smoothie routine and don’t want the hassle of sourcing dozens of exotic nutrients, the Mega Way protein shake may be the best choice for you.

This revolutionary, certified organic and vegan protein shake is made with carefully selected raw superfoods that digest easily when blended, and nourish the ten major systems in the body, including: digestive, intestinal, circulatory, respiratory, urinary, glandular, nervous, structural, immune and emotional/mental. Within just a few minutes of trying it, I felt energized from within, emotionally boosted and calmly sustained for hours until my next meal. For someone who’s tried it all, the Mega Way shake came as a big surprise.

MegaWay shakes include the following nutritious superfood ingredients, with numerous health benefits:

Certified Organic Pumpkin Seeds & Powder. Rich in zinc, omega fatty acids, all nine essential amino acids and high in protein, pumpkin seeds digest well, help burn fat and stabilize blood sugar.

Certified Organic Hulled Hemp Seeds. With the most concentrated balanced of proteins, essential fats, vitamins and enzymes combined with a relative absence of sugar, starch and saturated fats, hemp seeds are ideal for weight loss, sustained energy, reduced inflammation and lowered cholesterol/blood pressure.

Certified Organic Sunflower Seeds. A good source of magnesium, selenium and vitamin E – the body’s primary fat-soluble antioxidant, which neutralizes free radicals.

Certified Organic Goji Berry Seeds. Called the world’s most powerful anti-aging food, Goji’s contain 18 amino acids, 21 trace minerals, protein and vitamins B1, 2, 6 and E. They have more beta carotene than carrots, and 500 times more Vitamin C than oranges.

Alfalfa Leaf Powder. Known as “fhe father of all foods”, this highly alkalizing plant is an excellent source of vitamins A, B, D, C, E and K, zinc and calcium. Rich in saponins, phytoestrogen and antioxidants, it naturally detoxifies the liver and can relieve constipation and digestive problems, along with menopausal symptoms.

Raw Red Maca Root Powder. The highest-altitude growing food crop in the world, this super antioxidant and adaptogen has strong anti-tumor properties, and is a powerful strength, stamina and libido enhancer.

Ashwagandha Root Powder. This root improves both emotional and mental health, including memory, amnesia, Alzheimer’s, panic attacks, anxiety and depression. It also combats mental and physical fatigue while enhancing the immune system.  

Certified Organic Raw Cacao Nibs and Raw Cacao Powder. With over 300 identifiable compounds, this “food of the gods” raises neurotransmitters in the brain, promoting an overall feeling of well being and happy mood, making it a natural anti-depressant. Cacao naturally boosts blood flow, also making it a natural aphrodisiac with more antioxidants than green tea or wine.

Certified Organic Wheat Grass. This powerful detoxifier of the liver, blood, and gastrointestinal tract chemically neutralizes toxins, rebuilding the immune system while alkalizing the blood, promoting clarity, boosting energy and improving digestion.

Certified Organic Black Chia Seeds. With an extremely high concentration of Omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and soluble fiber, Black Chia seeds are great for supporting healthy weight, detoxifying the body, and increasing cardiovascular health and joint mobility.   

Certified Organic Luo Han Guo. This natural sweetener and anti-inflammatory antioxidant is 300 times sweeter than sugar, all without elevating insulin levels, raising cholesterol or stimulating fat storage. It is considered safe for diabetics, hypoglycemics and even children.

Certified Organic Cinnamon Powder. Also a natural sweetener, cinnamon is also a known tumor fighter, with anti-parasitic properties linked to fighting E.Coli and other medication-resistant fungal infections, like candida. It aids digestion, fights bad breath and lowers cholesterol while also serving as a cure for the common cold.

Certified Organic Golden Flax Seeds. Rich in Omega-3 fatty acids – good fats – flax seeds are anti-inflammatory and can aid with asthma, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, migraine headaches, and osteoporosis. For those who do not eat fish or wish to take fish oil supplements, flax seed provides a healthy alternative and is great for vegan cooking.

Certified Organic Turmeric Root Powder. Though this wonder-antioxidant is a natural antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, anti-parasite and liver cleanser, it’s mostly known for its curing effect on neurological diseases like Alzheimer’s and dementia, as well as cystic fibrosis.

Taken together in one well-blended shake, these incredible superfood ingredients can help you support a healthy weight, build lean muscle mass, strengthen your immune system and sustain vibrant, mood-boosting energy all day long. With flavors like Vanilla Mocha Bean and my favorite, earthy Triple Raw Creamy Cacao for chocolate lovers, this shake gives my body everything it needs along with a creamy, hunger-satisfying taste.

Unlike many shakes and smoothies on the market, Mega Way is free of gluten, soy, GMOs, synthetic growth or breeding hormones, persistent pesticides, and has no synthetic fertilizers. In addition, there are no artificial chemicals, preservatives, sweeteners or similar ingredients of any kind and it is sweetened naturally with certifited organic Luo Han Guo, the Chinese mangosteen fruit.
