What if your low energy, cravings, and slow metabolism aren’t your fault? What if you could change just one thing every morning and see radical shifts in your energy, mood, and even your sleep?
The fact is, most breakfast foods (and even most protein shakes) contain ingredients that your body can’t use. Not only that —they’re often toxic and doing more harm than good.
By now, you probably know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It breaks your nightly fast and sets your digestion, metabolism, and energy on the right track for the day.
That means setting the biological tone for how you feel, your mental sharpness, hunger and cravings, energy levels, and even how your body burns fat.
While most protein products are marketed as healthy, 99% of them lack nutrition and are packed with man-made, toxic ingredients that your body won’t recognize as food.
Many of us were raised to think that breakfast cereals were the pinnacle of healthy breakfasts. But cereals are highly-processed and contain very little nutrition. Even fortified cereals were found to have no real nutritional benefit.1
Just like most cereals, bread products lack nutrient-density, raise blood sugar, and cause cravings throughout the day. Refined flours alone are linked to insulin resistance and obesity, while these treats also tend to come with added sugar.2
Most fruit juices on the market only contain a small amount of juice and are sweetened with added sugar and corn syrup. Even 100% orange juice contains 24 grams (or 6 teaspoons) of sugar per 8 ounces!
Most sweetened, non-fat yogurts contain more added sugar than ice cream. Eating this for breakfast will send your blood sugar out of control and guarantee fatigue and cravings for the rest of the day.
While meat and cheese are low-carb and won’t spike your blood sugar, processed foods are only about half real food. The other half includes ingredients like food dyes, preservatives, fillers, emulsifiers, and other artificial ingredients.
So, how can you hack your mornings for vibrant all-day energy, smooth digestion, and even better sleep at night?
In fact, this one secret may also help you lose unwanted fat, balance your
hormones, and promote better focus…
It’s a powerful protein and superfood blend that covers all of your nutritional bases and gives
you clean energy throughout your day.
That’s right —clean, bioavailable protein is essential for weight loss, energy, nutrient transport, healthy immunity, and hundreds of other biochemical functions.3,4,5
Protein for breakfast slows the release of your hunger hormones and increases satiety hormones, helping you feel fuller for longer.6
Eating a protein-packed breakfast curbs your appetite and controls sugar cravings throughout the day, which can result in healthy, sustainable fat loss7
Regularly breaking your fast with carbs or sugar leads to spikes in blood sugar, followed by sharp dips in energy and brainpower. Protein, on the other hand, helps balance your blood sugar throughout the day.8
Protein doesn’t just fuel and repair muscle and other tissues —it provides longer-lasting energy than carbs, without the familiar crash of sugar or caffeine.9
Protein is vital for rebuilding and repairing tissues and fighting infection. Antibodies and immune cells also rely on protein to thrive. That means more protein equals a stronger immune system!10
Protein provides the amino acids that your body needs to make vital hormones.11 From estrogen to thyroid hormone to insulin, your body needs these to help speed up metabolism, nourish your brain, and balance blood sugar.
Protein contains an array of amino acids — the building blocks of muscle, bone, and other tissues. Protein even helps produce neurotransmitters, hormones, and enzymes that help your brain and body run smoothly!
The truth is, most people severely underestimate how much protein they get in a day—especially women. One in 3 adults aren’t getting the recommended amount of protein,12 missing up to 30 grams of protein per day. Here are just a few signs you might be low on this critical nutrient:
However, 99% of store-bought protein powder is actually
doing your body more harm than good...
Let’s explore the scary world of protein powders and the inflammatory
ingredients you need to avoid!
“I put Rootz in my smoothie every morning and feel good knowing I’m not just getting the highest quality protein available, but also my daily dose of greens and a ton of amazing superfoods. And it tastes like a chocolate banana milkshake!”
There are usually two types of protein powders —those that taste good and those that are good for you.
It’s rare to find a blend that does both.
The ones that taste good are filled with ingredients that will leave you feeling drained. In fact, many of them contain fillers and other harmful ingredients that can cause inflammation, disrupt your gut microbiome, and do more harm than good to your body over time.
Go ahead… grab a container of standard protein powder and read the ingredients list.
It’s likely they’re one of these:
Or they’re packed with…
And when it comes to healthy protein blends… Let’s just say they leave a lot to be desired when it comes to taste.
It’s time to ditch the chemicals and opt for a quick, convenient superfood blend that boosts energy and metabolism, while still tasting incredibleI'm Ready For Clean Protein
“I don’t know why, but it tastes like Captain Crunch!
...It is so good!”
“I started drinking Rootz 3 months ago and I am already down 20 lbs and feel much more energetic. I’ll be a customer for life”
Gone are the days when you have to choose between a
healthy protein shake that tastes like dirt or a tasty one that
is filled with harmful chemicals and toxic ingredients.
Instead, you can grab an ice-cold glass of this all-in-one
superfood protein that delivers a punch of protein, greens,
AND tastes like a delicious bowl of Cinnamon Toast
Crunch (with NONE of the toxic additives).
Buying half a dozen different powdered supplements and drinking 3-4 different shakes to get your daily dose of nutrients.
Searching the shelves for a protein powder with real, whole-foods ingredients.
Throwing out bin after bin of protein powder because it tastes like chalk (or worse!).

Most people enjoy the taste of our Protein Superfood mixed with unsweetened almond milk or other nut milks. However, it’s just as creamy and delicious mixed with filtered, icy cold water. Add to smoothies, acai or smoothie bowls, and baked goods as well, for an extra protein boost.
Rootz Protein Superfood is more than just a protein shake. It blends greens powder, protein powder, and other powerful superfoods all in one —so, instead of buying all of these supplements separately, they’re all found in this ONE Protein Superfood.
Sacha inchi is a nutrient-dense seed from Peru. Unlike many other plant-based proteins, it is a complete protein, offering all the essential amino acids your body needs to thrive. It looks and tastes like a nut, but it should be ok for people with nut allergies because it's technically a seed. As always, consult your doctor before trying new foods and supplements.
Most stevia additives are highly processed mixtures with additives and fillers, which contributes to the bitter aftertaste. The stevia we use is 100% ground stevia leaf with absolutely nothing else added. We also use an extremely small amount, so you get a hint of added sweetness without the bitterness.
Protein is necessary for tissue growth and maintenance, enzyme production, hormone function, and more. In other words, protein is essential, whether you’re a professional athlete or a busy parent. If you’re looking to eat healthier and have more energy, we think you will love Rootz.
