Blend and enjoy!
Here’s the lowdown on the ingredients and their main health benefits:
Oceans Alive is full of minerals and nutrients, such as vitamins B6, B12, C and E, as well as zinc and riboflavin, among many more. Many of the minerals and vitamins your body needs to function at its best. Oceans Alive supports mental clarity, improves your digestion and boosts energy levels. It also stabilizes blood sugar levels and normalizes cholesterol.
Flaxseed oil is rich in omega-3 fatty acids which can reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, inflammation and even cellular damage. It’s effective in alleviating symptoms associated with immune disorders as well as arthritis and psoriasis. Try Panaseeda Flaxseed Oil for 100% organic Perfectly Pressed™ flax seeds. Perfect Press Technology™ ensures zero-rancidity and maximum nutritional value.
Milk kefir is a fermented beverage, similar to yogurt. It is high in nutrients and a very good source of probiotics, making it incredibly beneficial for digestion and gut health. Kefir can assist in restoring the balance of friendly bacteria within the gut, which is useful if you have irritable bowel syndrome or other digestive issues.
Kale is high in vitamin C (for immune support, metabolism and hydration), vitamin A (good for vision, skin health and assists in cancer prevention) and calcium, which aids in the prevention of bone loss and prevents osteoporosis. It is also high in vitamin K, which increases calcium absorption and supports bone health. Check out Ian’s recent blog post about his favorite green superfoods for more on kale and its cousins.
Berries are not only delicious, they’re also rich in antioxidants. We recommend using a frozen berry blend during the winter months to ensure the quality of the berries.

This site uses Google Analytics which is one of the most widespread and trusted analytics solution on the web for helping us to understand how you use the site and ways that we can improve your experience. These cookies may track things such as how long you spend on the site and the pages that you visit so we can continue to produce engaging content.
A persistent cookie - remains on a computer, unless it expires or the cookie cache is cleared. It tracks visitors. Metrics associated with the Google __utma cookie include: first visit (unique visit), last visit (returning visit). This also includes Days and Visits to purchase calculations which afford ecommerce websites with data intelligence around purchasing sales funnels.
__utmb Cookie & __utmc Cookie
These cookies work in tandem to calculate visit length. Google __utmb cookie demarks the exact arrival time, then Google __utmc registers the precise exit time of the user.
Because __utmb counts entrance visits, it is a session cookie, and expires at the end of the session, e.g. when the user leaves the page. A timestamp of 30 minutes must pass before Google cookie __utmc expires. Given__utmc cannot tell if a browser or website session ends. Therefore, if no new page view is recorded in 30 minutes the cookie is expired.
This is a standard 'grace period' in web analytics. Ominture and WebTrends among many others follow the same procedure.
Cookie __utmz monitors the HTTP Referrer and notes where a visitor arrived from, with the referrer siloed into type (Search engine (organic or cpc), direct, social and unaccounted). From the HTTP Referrer the __utmz Cookie also registers, what keyword generated the visit plus geolocation data.
This cookie lasts six months. In tracking terms this Cookie is perhaps the most important as it will tell you about your traffic and help with conversion information such as what source / medium / keyword to attribute for a Goal Conversion.
Google __utmv Cookie lasts "forever". It is a persistant cookie. It is used for segmentation, data experimentation and the __utmv works hand in hand with the __utmz cookie to improve cookie targeting capabilities.
