I am living proof that food is medicine. Twice in my life, doctors have said those dreaded words, “There is nothing more we can do for you.” And twice, I have come back using the power of nutrition.
I love starting my day with The Daily Good. It is tough to find the time and space in one’s appetite to eat all of the recommended vegetables and fruits. The Daily Good is so convenient. It is robust health in a packet. It tastes delicious mixed into your favorite juice or smoothie. Here are many of The Daily Good’s benefits:
: Contains high quality ingredients chosen for their purity including organic spirulina, organic spinach, organic wheatgrass juice, organic pea protein, and sustainable moringa (a powerful antioxidant). Read more about spirulina’s impressive benefits
: Provides organic wild blueberries, organic raspberries, organic lemon, organic ginger, mineral-rich Hawaiian red salt, and 2500 mg of wild-harvested coconut water. It is like drinking a coconut water on steroids!
: Alkaline, not acid. To promote healing, the body needs to remain alkaline at a pH of around 7.0 ideally. In comparison, a Coke or Diet Coke has an extremely acidic pH of 2.5 which sets up the perfect environment for cancer, osteoporosis, inflammation and more.
: Non-GMO and tested free of heavy metals. (Note that some popular green powders have tested positive for arsenic and lead according to ConsumerLab.com)
: No artificial flavors. No fillers or artificial sweeteners
: Arrives in eco-friendly packaging that is fully recyclable and compostable. No Styrofoam in this box
: At $2.50 per packet, it is cheaper than buying a prepared green juice

As the founder Constantin Bisanz says, “We want to help people live holistic lifestyles and be a company truly dedicated to nutrition, health and wellness. Authenticity is a core value. When I moved to the U.S., it was tough to find top quality products, which is why I decided to start ALOHA. We want to raise the bar, source the best possible ingredients, and provide people with healthy choices that are also fun. Ultimately, we want to share the breath of life.”
Add the Right Calcium For Strong Bones: In addition to The Daily Good, I also recommend taking a fully-balanced calcium supplement like Bone Up by Jarrow Formulas or Bone Strength by New Chapter. These contain both absorbable calcium and essential companion elements of Vitamin K2, magnesium, and Vitamin D3. You can buy these supplements online or at stores like Whole Foods.
Calcium supplements like Caltrate at drug stores are suboptimal and even potentially harmful because they contain calcium that is hard to digest (calcium carbonate or limestone) and are missing the Vitamin K2 and magnesium needed for absorption. So this calcium can end up in the wrong places such as in kidney stones or in the arteries, not in the bones. The key is to start preserving your bones early with a calcium supplement that is well-absorbed by the body. Osteoporosis is not a foregone conclusion!
Happy New Year: Make it your New Year’s resolution to make your health a top priority. You will see changes almost immediately in your appearance and mood. As my Dad likes to say, you will begin “youthing” rather than aging. It is as simple as staying hydrated and eating/drinking nutrient-dense foods and complete protein throughout the day. An ounce of prevention really is worth a pound of cure. Cheers to 2014 and positive daily habits. It's easy being green with The Daily Good. Bottoms up!
