TOP 3 MULTIVITAMINS

Top 3 Multivitamins - Active Mode | Biotic Blendz

     If you’re eating on-the-go a lot, it’s pretty hard to avoid nutrient-deficient, processed food. We especially don’t want our kids losing out on any vital nutrients as they grow bigger. Luckily a good multivitamin can be the best insurance to supplement even the healthiest of diets…

Garden of Life
mykind Organics Kids Multivitamin

    For the kids, we love Garden of Life’s mykind Organics Kids Multivitamin Gummies. Even though they don’t contain fish oil, they contain an impressive spectrum of B Vitamins, which is just as important to your brain health at any age.

     On top of that, they contain the ever-elusive vitamin K and a huge patented blend of fruits, veggies, and herbal extracts. When independently tested for purity, label accuracy, and quality, they stand unmatched. When it comes to our kids’ health, that makes the decision pretty easy. The best part is these gummies taste awesome, so you won’t have any issues getting your kids to take their daily dose.

Garden of Life
Vitamin Code for Women

      Garden Of Life made the decision pretty easy for Women also. Just like the kids Gummies, the Garden Of Life Vitamin Code Multivitamins for Women contain ALL the essentials. They’re the perfect supplement for the irregular eating habits of active lifestyles. Also, with no binders and fillers, they use every bit of space by including these special blends:

  • RAW Organic Fruit & Veggie Blend
  • RAW Probiotic & Enzyme Blend
  • RAW Antioxidant & Immune Support Complex

GNC Mega Men Sport

     For our mens best multivitamin we almost went with Garden of Life Vitamin Code Multivitamin for Men, which would’ve given them the 3-way win. Even with Garden of Life taking the #1 Best Multivitamin for Women and Kids, they couldn’t compete with GNC’s Mega Men Sport Multivitamins. Checking all the boxes for the essential vitamins and minerals we you look for, they scored extra credit with their additional blends:

  • Sports Blend
  • Super Antioxidant Blend
  • BCAA’s (Branch Chain Amino Acids)

     Also, GNC’s Mega Men Sport Multivitamins score right at the top of the list with Garden of Life Vitamins when 3rd-party tested for purity, quality, and label accuracy.

BEST SUPERFOOD GREENS POWDERS

KOS Superfood Powder - Best Green Juice Substitute

    We all know fruits and veggies are an essential part of a good diet, and most of us could stand to get a few more on a daily basis. When you’re on-the-go, fresh juices and smoothies represent one of the easiest ways to get your daily amount, but these are the most common issues people face along the way (especially in Active Mode):

  • No juice bars or other healthy options in your neighborhood
  • No good grocery options for organic produce to make your own
  • Price is too high for either option
  • No time to learn how
  • Always on the road and/or away from home kitchen
  • Live in a dorm-style room (students, military, etc.)

      Luckily, in Chef Mode, we share some simple solutions to most of these issues, so head over there if you have the time. For those of us in Active Mode, Superfood Powders represent the best “cheat code” to bypass all of those extra shopping and kitchen duties associated with juicing.

      Just like any shortcut, they can be risky, and Superfood Powders don’t let you completely skip eating your fruits and veggies. Just like multivitamins, Superfood Powders are meant to SUPPLEMENT a healthy diet and give you an all-natural boost in energy, immunity, and more.

      With hundreds of choices on the market, there’s already a wide gap between the best and the worst Superfood Powders. We made it easy by lining up the best options and included the main reasons why they made the cut.

BEST MEAL REPLACEMENT BARS

RxBars-Meal-Replacement-Bars

      Let’s leave those protein-overloaded bars to the athletes in Beast Mode because, unless you’re hitting the weights hard, that extra protein could actually be hurting you in more ways than one. On the other hand, a good nutritional bar is perfect for a meal replacement on a busy day or maybe just for an extra boost after your morning coffee has worn off. One thing is for sure, most of the “nutritional” bars available today aren’t anything more than gourmet candy bars.

     For those of us on-the-go, we need something that’ll give us a large spectrum of nutrients to keep us sharp, energized and healthy. If you find yourself turning into Aretha Franklin or Rosanne, don’t reach for a Snickers. Instead, reach for one of these perfect meal replacement bars.

     If you’re looking for a meal replacement with everything you need to sustain healthy energy and “no B.S.” ingredients, then look no further than RXBar. Sweetened naturally by dates, they also give the bar a chewy texture that’s super satisfying. Also, the egg whites and fiber keep you full for longer than your average meal bar.

  • Most transparent with ingredient listing
  • Absolutely NO added sugar or sugar alcohols
  • No preservatives
  • Unique and delicious flavor combos

     Best for beginners and families, Kind Bar has something for everyone. Even though there’s some added sugar in their products, there’s a good amount of healthy fats to slow it down to keep you full and energized.

  • Largest variety of bars
  • Included Superfoods like Millet, Buckwheat, and Quinoa for extra trace minerals
  • New “Build Your Own Box” feature

     With Atkins being such a polarizing name in the health and wellness industry, it’s easy for a lot of people to overlook their products, including their Protein-Rich Meal Bars. Like Kind Bars, even though they contain some controversial ingredients like Sucralose and Soy Protein, their fiber, protein, and healthy fats make them on of the most beneficial meal bars on the market. Simply put, they give you a lot of healthy energy from only 2-5 net carbs.

  • Keto Friendly
  • High Fiber
  • Low Sugar and Low Net Carbs

     If you’ve been living the Keto lifestyle, you most likely already have these in your pantry. If not, these bars are exactly what their name is, Perfect Keto Bars. Even if you’re diet isn’t exactly Keto-friendly, everyone can benefit from these clean treats!

  • Grass-Fed Collagen
  • MCT Oil
  • No Gluten, Dairy, GMO’s, Soy, Corn, or Peanuts

Most kids will like something from at least one of our top 5 recommended brands. If yours is a little extra picky or maybe just wants “their own” bars, then the flavors that ZBar has to offer should definitely do the trick. With flavors like Iced Oatmeal Cookie, Chocolate Chip, and Chocolate Brownie, the whole family should be happy.

From the makers of Clif Bars, Zbars are pretty much a mini version. About a 1/3 of the size of a traditional Clif Bars, all the flavors are packed with nutrients to keep your kids more active and less “hangry.”

BEST MEAL REPLACEMENT SHAKES

Top-5-Meal-ReplTop-5-Meal-Replacement-Shakes

     Sometimes Superfood Greens and Meal Bars just won’t cut it. However, for people on the go, meal replacement shakes can be your best bridge to proper nutrition. So no, Bloody Mary’s didn’t make our cut for the Top 5 Meal Replacement drinks, but nice try.

     What we DID include is some of the purest and nutritious meal replacement powders we could find. We went through quite a few, but it was pretty simple to narrow it down when focusing on the 4 major metrics we look for when trying to replace a whole meal with a shake.

  • Vitamins and minerals
  • Protein
  • Healthy Fats
  • Overall Ingredient Quality

For a comprehensive breakdown of how we judged each category, check out our Meal Replacement Metrics guide…

Key Features:

  • Flavors: Chocolate & Vanilla

  • Special features: Organic; Enzyme Blend; Plant-Based; Dairy-Free; Non-GMO; Gluten-Free; Soy-Free; Vegan; BCAA’s; No Artificial Ingredients

Conclusion:

     KOS takes meal replacement shakes to another level. Free from dairy, gluten, soy, and GMO’s, this powder is healthy for your body and the environment. It made the top of our list because it has all the essential nutrients for sustainable energy without sacrificing taste. At 170 calories per serving, you may want to pair this with your favorite Meal Bar if you’re activity level is above average.

Key Features:
  • Flavors: Chocolate & Vanilla
  • Serving Size: 50g
  • Calories: 280
  • Healthy Fats: Total 22g (28%); Saturated 11g (55%)

  • Vitamins and Minerals: 10+ 
  • Special features: Organic; Certified Keto & Paleo; Probiotics & Prebiotic fiber; Gluten Free; Non-GMO; Grass-fed Protein & Butter
Conclusion:

     The Garden of Life family of products, as a whole, is one of our favorites. They dominated in our review of multivitamins, but they missed out on the #1 spot on this list because of the lower protein content. The things that got them to #2 are the overall fat and calorie content. This meal replacement powder is Keto and Paleo certified, so it’s low glycemic index is perfect for diabetics also.

Key Features:

  • Flavors: Chocolate (Raw Cacao)
  • Serving Size: 53g
  • Calories: 205
  • Healthy Fats: Total 7g (11%); Saturated 4g (18%)
  • Protein: 26g
  • Sweetener/Sugar: No added sugar (sweetened Organic Monkfruit)
  • Vitamins and Minerals: Only 3 Labeled
  • Special features: Organic; MCT Oil Powder; Plant-Based; BCAA’s Dairy-Free; Non-GMO; Gluten Free; No Artificial Ingredients
Conclusion:

     Pure Food’s Real Meal Powder made it to the #3 spot mainly because of the 26g of protein per serving. Another plus is that there’s no sugar, gluten, dairy, or soy, so it’s one of the best choices for diabetics and allergies.

Key Features:

  • Flavors: Chocolate, Cinnamon Churro, Vanilla, & Unflavored
  • Serving Size: 49g
  • Calories: 170
  • Healthy Fats: Total 3.5g (4%); Saturated 2.5g (13%)
  • Protein: 25g (Grass-Fed)
  • Sweetener/Sugar: 2g
  • Vitamins and Minerals: 7+
  • Special features: MCT Powder; Probiotics & Prebiotics; Non-GMO;  All-In-One Fiber and Superfood Blend; No Artificial Ingredients; Grass-Fed
Conclusion:

     RSP’s TrueFit Meal Powder has the best selection of flavors, with the Cinnamon Churro being our favorite. There’s also an unflavored version if you plan to add it to smoothies, hot cereals, or juice. It has plenty of protein (25g) and superfoods, but it lacks calories and fat per serving compared to the other choices on our list. This is another meal replacement shake you would want to pair with a meal bar if you’re at an above-average activity level.

Key Features:

  • Flavors: Chocolate & Vanilla
  • Serving Size: 57g
  • Calories: 220
  • Healthy Fats: Total 5g (8%); Saturated .5g (3%)
  • Protein: 20g
  • Sweetener/Sugar: 1g sugar & 5g Erythritol
  • Vitamins and Minerals: 8+
  • Special features: Organic; Vegan; Soy Free; Gluten Free; Non-GMO

Conclusion:

     Rounding out our Top 5 Meal Replacement Shake list is Orgain’s Organic Meal. They have one of the best varieties of superfoods and the most grams per serving (57g) out of the top 5. The one thing that put it at #5 is that it’s sweetened with Erythritol. It’s great if your Keto, Paleo, or diabetic, but the undigestible Erythritol doesn’t settle well in some people’s stomachs. If you’re one of those that it doesn’t negatively effect, then this meal replacement powder is the best value out of the top 5.
