More about Miessence
Miessence is an all-encompassing lifestyle brand covering skincare, haircare, body, nutrition and cosmetic products. Certified by the USDA and Australian certifying body, they are the first certified range to embody all the different types of aforementioned products. Miessence is a super-green company, checking every step of the production; from sourcing to packaging nothing is left unscrutinised! Miessence is not just carbon neutral but carbon negative, their ingredients are organic and wild-harvested on certified organic land by fair trade protected farmers who use sustainable farming methods. They truly are a company who cares about the health of their customers as well as that of the environment – how fab is that?! Their ingredients are 100% pure and something I particularly like about Miessence skincare is they use an aloe vera base rather than water, and aloe has so many great skincare benefits!
What is Miessence BerryRadical Antioxidant Superfood
We all know that we should be eating our greens (as well as our reds, oranges and yellows) but many of us will find ourselves deficient in various vitamins and minerals. This may be down to our diets not being up to scratch, but can also be down to the fact that the food we eat today is nowhere near as nutrient dense as it was 30 years ago due to intense agricultural methods being used today. The soil and arable land used for farming are not always used to produce the healthiest food, but to produce the most food, or the crop that will generate the most cash. On average, foods today have only 10% of the nutrient value they did 30 years ago.
By eating organic, we can be more hopeful that food will be more nutrient dense (if a farm is growing organic, there is a greater chance they will have crop rotation methods employed to best look after the land and keep the soil nutrient levels higher.) Miessence’s BerryRadical Antioxidant Superfood is a blend of nine of the world’s most potent, nutrient-dense, antioxidant-rich superfoods-
- certified organic cacao powder
- dried coffee fruit extract
- certified organic dried olive juice extract
- certified organic freeze-dried pomegranate powder
- certified organic freeze-dried goji berry powder
- certified organic freeze-dried acai berry powder
- certified organic freeze-dried blueberry powder
- certified organic freeze-dried raspberry powder
- certified organic freeze-dried strawberry powder
Yes, they most certainly did fit a lot of berries into the Miessence BerryRadical Antioxidant Blend (I suppose the clue was in the name!) but they missed out the Cacao part, which is just as important! Whilst most of us know about the powerful ingredients in berries, cacao also has some amazing health benefits! The cacao in Miessence BerryRadical Antioxidant Blend is raw and unrefined, contains important vitamins and minerals including magnesium, polyphenols, B Vitamins and Vitamin E, healthy fats, protein and fibre. It’s good for the circulatory system, improves cardiovascular health and also digestion.
How I took my Miessence BerryRadical Antioxidant Blend
Mostly, I put my Miessence BerryRadical Antioxidant Blend in hot water with a dollop of cream to give the drink more body – making it a bit smoother and thicker and more like a hot chocolate drink! I also mixed into cold milk for a bit of a milkshake experience. Both of these drinks were very tasty!
But Miessence BerryRadical Antioxidant Blend can also be added to food recipes – I received a pdf recipe book in an email and I made some delicious BerryRadical No Bake Cookie Bites, which went down an absolute storm and they were so easy as no cooking was required!
