To supplement or not to supplement?-- a question that has crossed the minds of most people on a plant-based diet. Whilst researching the latest supplements for an upcoming Chronicle, we came across Inspiriko, organic, plant-based supplements specifically formulated for women following a plant-based diet. All ingredients are certified as organic, vegan and sourced from sustainable farms.
Their first product, the Love Thy Gut Superfood Powder is a blend of nine super-charged foods, maca, baobab, barley grass, açai berry, aronia berry, inulin, blueberry, flaxseed and goji berry. Nutrients-wise, this means that it offers plant-based sources of Vitamins A, C, E and K, Zinc, Manganese, Omega-3s and Calcium--and not only that, it provides a good source of fibre, needed for feeding gut bacteria and maintaining a healthy gut. We tried it in a smoothie for a virtuous afternoon snack, but is can be sprinkled over granola, added to your morning yogurt or used in cooked recipes. We loved the vibrant berry-flavour and appreciated that there was no powdery aftertaste.
To celebrate their launch they are offering a 40% discount on every packet of Love Thy Gut and a chance to win a FitBit Charge 2. To buy and enter the competition go to this link or go to their Amazon store. And if you want to find out more, head over to Inspiriko website.
