I had no idea until recently that I’d been using Genuine Health products for years. Greens+ Kids has been a mainstay in our fridge since The K Man was a toddler; around here, it’s called “Magic Juice.” But that’s not all the brand makes. Let me tell you more…
Genuine Health Fast Pain Relief+
When I broke my ankle last summer, some smart cookie at Genuine Health’s PR agency reached out to see if I’d like to try a bottle of its natural pain reliever, Fast Pain Relief+, and its Fast Joint Care+ with Fermented Tumeric. My first inclination is always to go natural before introducing over-the-counter or prescription medication. I’ll stave off a cold with oil of oregano, heal bruises with arnica or use vitamin E on a cut, but I was pretty clueless about natural pain care.
Gluten-free, non-GMO and soy-free, Fast Pain Relief+ is a bit of a wonder drug. It’s made with a proprietary ingredient called Biovaflex, which is egg membrane — giving your body the nutrients essential for proper joint health and important proteins like collagen and elastin. It also has Devil’s Claw and White Willow Bark; the former is proven to work well to relieve back pain and the latter works in your body like Aspirin, only better.
Tumeric is one of those miracle spices. And one of its medicinal properties is as an anti-inflammatory. You’d be hard-pressed to consume enough tumeric on your own, much less find fermented tumeric, so concentrated into these capsules the way Genuine Health presents it is the way to go.
It’s hard to say whether or not these products helped get me back on my foot any faster, but they did help with pain relief. In fact, I still take the Fast Pain Relief+ when I get a headache and it works as well as Tylenol or Advil for me.
Genuine Health Greens+ Kids
This one probably doesn’t need much of an introduction because the Greens+ line might be Genuine Health’s most recognized product, that you have no idea is actually from Genuine Health! The kids’ version is the only one we’ve ever had, and my kids love it. We aren’t a big fan of giving them juice, and they have no idea that when I mix a scoop of Greens+ Kids powder with half a cup of water that it isn’t actually juice. SUCKERS!
Featuring superfoods and ingredients rich in phytonutrients and antioxidants, Greens+ products pass both the flavour and nutrition test in our house.
Genuine Health Fermented Organic Gut Superfoods+
This product really surprised me. I’ve taken probiotics on and off enough over the years to know the importance of gut health and the role that fermented foods play in it. But I’d never had a PREbiotic or found a flavoured probiotic that I’ve enjoyed — until this one. I had the Orange Ginger flavour and it has a very distinct orange zing to it. When I mix it with my Arbonne chocolate protein powder each morning, it tastes like a liquid version of Terry’s Chocolate Orange!
In case you’re wondering, probiotics are the good bacteria and keep your gut in good health, while prebiotics are healthy carbs that the human body can’t digest — they feed the probiotics.
There are 21 organic plant-based superfoods — such as organic spirulina, organic black currant, organic sea buckthorn and organic bitter melon — in the Genuine Health Fermented Organic Gut Superfoods+. One scoop delivers polyphenols, bloat-free prebiotic fibre and vegan-friendly nourishment. If we go out for a “cheat meal” on a Saturday night, it’s a must for me to have a healthy smoothie on Sunday morning with this stuff.
