New to Supplements?
Are you interested in taking supplements but don’t know where to start? You’ve come to the right place.
First, you need to know something about us – we don’t like to overcomplicate things. We believe that to live well and feel great, you’ve got to eat plenty of fresh, whole foods, and move your body daily. We also believe that you’ve got to take the right supplements to feed your body the nutrients that it needs to function at its best – nutrients that you can’t get through diet alone.
This is what we call Foundational Nutrition – and it’s comprised of just 3 essential products:
Superfoods, Omegas, and Probiotics.
It isn’t easy to nourish your body in today’s world: changes in agriculture, soil erosion, and the overuse of pesticides and fertilizers have rendered our food less nutritious than it once was, and even the healthiest of us might be at risk for developing nutrient gaps. The good news is that we can help to cover our bases with a potent, plant-based superfood.
Plant foods contain plant nutrients called phytonutrients that provide energy, protect against free radical damage (read: aging and disease), balance pH, support healthy bones, and feed diverse populations of gut microflora.
We pioneered the superfood category in Canada with the launch of greens+ 25 years ago, so you could say that we know a thing or two about superfoods.

Fish oils are also known as omega-3 essential fatty acids. They’re called essential because our bodies can’t make them – we need to ensure that we get them from our diet! Omega-3 fatty acids are integral to our health and wellbeing – and are an important component of every cell in our body – they have been proven to provide many benefits to the body, from taming inflammation to supporting our mood and cognitive focus to supporting a healthy heart and nourishing our gut.
We helped to bring the fish oil category to Canada, and make clean, pure fish oils for different health concerns.
Trillions of bacteria call our intestinal tracts home. These bacteria offer so many health benefits – like keeping our digestive systems healthy and our immune systems strong. But these bacteria can become depleted in numbers and overall diversity, thanks to our diet, stress levels and lifestyle.
The best way to cultivate a diverse ecology of gut bacteria is to take a multi-strain probiotic with targeted delivery.
