FAQs – Super Food

Here at BōKU®, we firmly believe in the power of whole, healing foods. When it comes to organic food versus non-organic, the choice is easy for us. For something to be Certified Organic, it has to meet certain criteria that we believe all food should be upheld to.

To be certified organic the food must…

– Contain NO GMO’s! What’s a GMO you ask? It stands for Genetically Modified Organism. We could really go on all day about why we do not want them in our products, and especially do not want to feed them to our wonderful customers. To learn more about GMO’s, see our FAQ “What is a GMO?”

– Be grown and harvested in a safe and sustainable manner, with NO artificial fertilizers, NO artificial pesticides and NO irradiation!

– Contain NO artificial flavors, colors or preservatives!

Why else should you choose organic?

– Organic agriculture preserves natural resources and biodiversity.

– It supports animal health and welfare (for meat products, certified organic means they have not be subjected to growth hormones or harmful antibiotics).

– Organic foods have been shown to have better nutritional value than conventionally grown food.

This is called a “sachet” or “desiccant” and it is there solely to remove any moisture that may get into your product after you reseal it. Don’t worry, our sachets/desiccants are made our of natural clay. This means in the off chance it should open up in your product, there is absolutely no cause for alarm. These should be left as-is in your product to keep it at optimal freshness.
Dr. BJ Adrezin: “Boku Super Food is carefully milled to a very fine powder.  This encourages excellent absorption without having to undergo an extensive digestion process.  The ingredients are also low temperature dried, which helps keeps the nutritional value intact.”
Labels may not lie but they certainly don’t tell the whole story. BōKU® Super Food is packed with “Phytonutrients.”  Phytonutrients are the natural substances a plant makes to keep itself healthy and strong.  Many of these substances have been carefully researched for the amazing health benefits they impart when humans eat them. More than 25,000 phytonutrients are found in plant foods. Think of them as precursors to vitamins. Unlike vitamins and minerals, there are no RDAs or DRIs for them.

 

Phytonutrients are severely lacking in the diet of most Americans. BoKU is able to offer generous amounts of phytonutrients, because they are loaded in whole Organic foods.  Each of the categories in BōKU® Super Food, provide their own unique life-giving phytonutrients from Organic Greens, Sprouts, Fruit, Mushrooms, Maca, etc.

 

Most companies that show a large amount of “traditional” nutrients in a small serving of powder, are doing this by adding man-made nutrients to their product to “spike” the Nutrition Panel, and make their numbers look large.  BōKU® has chosen to only use the purest Organic foods in their natural state, and optimally dried.

BōKU® Super Táke is a proprietary blend of 14 specialty mushrooms comprised of the most widely used mushrooms in Traditional Chinese Medicine and modern herbal formulations. Many of these mushrooms have a history of use dating back thousands of years and are some of the most highly respected ingredients of herbal preparations. In fact, in Traditional Chinese Medicine, reishi is ranked as the most useful of all herbs for its numerous benefits, ranked even higher than ginseng!
The mushrooms in BōKU® Super Táke have numerous properties that help to promote well being by delivering “super-adaptors,” prebiotics and antioxidants. In fact, the power of these mighty mushrooms is so great that we cannot legally disclose it on our site. Although we cannot publish why exactly we love them, there have been many published studies on the benefits of consuming functional super mushrooms. We encourage you to do a little internet research of your own to learn about their amazing uses and history!
We hear that many of our customers love sharing BōKU® SuperFood with their pets. We know of nothing in BōKU® Superfood that could possibly be harmful. That said, BōKU® was created for humans to enjoy, and has not been tested on animals. For this reason, we recommend checking with your veterinarian as to whether BōKU® Superfood would be suitable for your animal friends. We are planning to introduce a new BōKU® Superfood specifically formulated for pets. Be sure to check back with us on the BōKU® website for updates!
Everyone will benefit from good nutrition! It’s not just for people who want to heal through natural medicine! (Pregnant women should ask their doctor before eating any new food.)
Deliveries passing through USA government portals like Washington, D.C. are x-rayed as standard procedure. Parcels not passing through a government portal would never be x-rayed. Orders shipped in restricted areas would, by law, be x-rayed.
Looser bowels are an indication of cleansing and are good. Stools will be green if the bowels are loose. With continued use you should see healthy bowel movements that are not green.
Of course you can! We try our best to always keep stock of 1 oz samples of most popular BōKU® products just for the sampling purpose! If you would like to try something out, all you have to do is give us a call at 805-650-2658 and request a sample. Samples are $5 + shipping & handling. There is a limit of 2 samples.
Please consult with your health care professional for answers to medical questions.
Try enjoying BōKU® Super Food blended in a smoothie, rather than in juice or flavored milk; or blend it in juice or milk taken with a light meal for a few weeks. You may also use half, rather than a full serving, until your body adjusts to this amazing new superfood!
When stored in the original packaging and properly sealed, approximately 2 years.
We don’t recommend it! BōKU® Super Food is in a dry stable powder. Refrigerators tend to hold moisture & the inside of a refrigerator can vary wildly depending on: how often its opened & closed & where you live. Once mixed with liquid & re-hydrated, the enzymes in the food reactivate putting it back into a raw state. We recommend drinking it quickly or keeping it chilled in order to maintain maximum nutritional value. One trick we learned from our customers is load a dry shaker with the powders in the am & at some point in day add your favorite liquid & you have an amazing treat in the go!

We specifically choose the probiotic L. Sporogenes to include in BõKU® Super Food because it is very stable at room temperature. It is one of the few probiotics that come in the form of spores. This means that it is totally inactive until it is taken into the body. When L. Sporogenes reaches the ideal growing environment of the small intestine, the spores activate and start to reproduce. They then form colonies and give all the benefits of these “good” bacteria.

While there are no known negative effects between BōKU® Super Food and coffee, BōKU® Super Food has natural and beneficial energizing effects, so after drinking it, you may not even have the need for a “caffeine buzz.”
Pregnant women should ask their doctor before eating any new food.
My husband and I brought in master formulator and superfoods expert, Dr. BJ Adrezin – the Medical Director of the 21st Century Apothecary in Pacific Palisades – to create the most unique and potent superfoods formula in the world. Besides our incredible formulation, the introduction of BōKU® marks the first time in history that a product with such high quality ingredients and meticulous handling has been available to the public at a price that people can reasonably afford. We realized that in order for the public to benefit from the power of superfoods, it needed to be at a price the public can afford. This was achieved with direct cooperation of all suppliers and farmers, and a very unique, direct-to-consumer business model.

The reality is, organic raw ingredients are not mass produced. We had to sell the idea to farms and suppliers that by working together in this mission to provide precious ingredients at a lower price, their investment will pay off in the long term.

BōKU® International secured nutrition expert, Dr. BJ Adrezin, to create the world’s most powerful super food formula. Dr. Adrezin combined the purest organic, alkalizing greens with potent quantities unique, rejuvenating super foods, such as: organic maca root juice, organic goji berry juice, 14 organic specialty mushrooms, etc. Every BōKU® Super Food ingredient is nutrient-dense. We use absolutely no fillers of any kind. Dr. Adrezin carefully balanced every ingredient to create a one of a kind super food blend.
Our customers tell us that their kids love BōKU Super Food blended into a glass of chocolate soy or rice milk.
BōKU® has a very neutral taste and is especially mild for such a green, vegan, super nutrient-dense food. We believe, and have heard from thousands of satisfied customers, that BōKU® Super Food is the best tasting green super food product on the market. It mixes easily with your favorite juice or beverage.
Dr. BJ Adrezin is our “BōKU® Super Doctor.” He is our Master Formulator and Chief Medical Advisor. You can find his bio in the “Our Formulator” section of this website.
If you do find any lumps in your BōKU® Super Food it is most likely an ingredient that wasn’t completely powdered during the mixing process. This can happen when dealing with organic products. Reddish lumps may occasionally be found in BōKU®. They are only strawberry chunks which are difficult to mix entirely due to how sticky they can be. They are not a problem and do not interfere with the quality of the product.
Our BōKU® Take’ Blend is a combination of functional mushrooms that help support a healthy intestinal tract and help support the immune system to keep candida in check!
Protein generally is very challenging to digest so we use 3 different potency of protease plus Bromelain and Papain to work on the wide range of pH levels in the digestive system.
We believe that BōKU® SuperFood is the highest quality, most nutrient dense Superfood formulation on the planet and the healthiest thing a person could ever consume. Superfoods are plants, vegetables, roots and fruits that are highly nutritious and health forming. BōKU® Super Food is an award winning, proprietary blend of the most potent, certified organic superfoods in the world.
BōKU® Super Food is hand blended and packaged with care in a state-of-the-art facility in the USA.

This is highly unlikely. BōKU® Super Food is a 100% non-toxic, natural food. It’s important to note that BōKU® Super Food is not a supplement. It is a broad-spectrum super food. It is virtually impossible to overdose with BōKU®. Mega-dosing is not only safe, but encouraged. Depending on the individual and the level of toxicity, there may be adverse reactions to the cleansing benefits of BōKU®. Common sense is the way to go. We suggest you start off with the recommended serving, and gradually increase the amount to your liking.
We recommend one tablespoon for adults and a 1/2 tablespoon for children. The usage level can be increased or decreased as desired.

Have you ever taken a vitamin pill or nutritional supplement? Why? Most likely because it’s almost impossible to get all the vitamins and nutrients we need to stay healthy from the foods we eat alone everyday. But most vitamins in a pill form just pass through our bodies because they have been chemically processed, extracted by heat, and in turn become something your body hardly recognizes. Most nutrients and vitamins need to be recognized as food for the body to assimilate. Imagine a table full of organic vegetables and fruits: it’s not practical to eat this everyday, but imagine if this pile of goodness was dehydrated and ground up into a fine powder that will mix well with any of your favorite liquids. Now we realize that eating healthy can be convenient, which is a major benefit of using BōKU® Super Food.
BōKU® SuperFood can not and should not replace a healthy, preferably organic, whole foods diet. We need fresh fruits, vegetables, healthy oils and fats, quality protein, and a diverse selection of complex carbohydrates every single day. BōKU® enhances and can easily replace synthetic supplements, and adds such an important element to the diet, it would be impossible to eat or even find the quantity and quality of food available in it on a daily basis.
For some, yes. If you have been eating a diet full of processed, chemically-laden foods, you may experience a cleansing reaction when first taking BōKU® Super Food. BōKU® Super Food contains some of the most powerful and cleansing nutrients found in nature, and as a result it can initiate beneficial detoxification and cleansing reactions. For most people, this process will go on “behind the scenes.” If you do experience any uncomfortable reactions, such as headaches or loose bowels, simply take a smaller dose and build back up to a full dosage once you feel better.
BōKU® Super Food can be taken on an empty stomach and is assimilated more effectively if taken before eating solid food. It can be taken with a light meal if preferred.
Anytime you wish. BōKU® Super Food is not a stimulant, though it can be very energizing. Start with once a day for the first month or so, and then begin experimenting with a BōKU® blend in the morning and one in the afternoon. BōKU® Super Food is great as a pre- or post- workout boost!
Multivitamins are generally synthetically produced. BōKU® Super Food contains naturally-occurring, non-toxic whole food vitamins and minerals that are more readily absorbed than synthetic supplements. Unfortunately many vitamins end up passing through our bodies as waste. With BōKU®, direct delivery proves an advantage and many feel the beneficial impact immediately. BōKU® Super Food provides thousands of naturally-occurring, deeply healing phytochemicals/phytonutrients that isolated vitamins do not.
Some people feel the effects right away but for others it make take a day, a week, or more, depending on your current diet and health history. When you give your body the super nutrients found in Bõku™ Super Food on a regular basis, it will respond with increased health and vitality!
Many people enjoy one scoop (1 tablespoon) of BōKU® in a large glass of water but you can blend it with your favorite juice or liquid. You can also try it out in one of our amazing smoothie recipes found on the RECIPES tab of our website!
