Ready for some super Spring snacking? Our new Blueberry Hemp Navitas Power Snacks are nourishing "grab & go" snacks made from a diversity of the most nutrient-dense superfoods and organic seeds, fruits and nuts. Blueberry Hemp joins Cacao Goji, and Citrus Chia in our award-winning line of organic Navitas Power Snacks that were launched in 2011. Give your snacking a superfoods boost with 30% off all Power Snacks this week.
We have gone to great lengths to test out the Blueberry Hemp superfood snacks before the official launch. Some noteworthy trials include having pro hockey players with the Boston Bruins test them out, and adventurers depending on them during their grueling push to the South Pole.
Nutrition experts recommend hemp seed because it’s a complete protein source that is easy to digest. We also included hemp in this Navitas Power Snack because it's one of the richest vegetable sources of Omega 3 and Omega 6 essential fats, and it offers those omegas in an ideal ratio to support human health.
Hemp is also a plentiful source of fiber, vitamins and minerals such as magnesium, iron, zinc, and potassium. We also like the fact that hemp is an eco-friendly crop, too.
Blueberries are famous for their delicious fruit flavor and abundance of phytonutrients, which many scientists believe provide powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that may protect against heart disease, colon cancer and other ailments. In addition to the organic hemp powder and dried blueberries, Blueberry Hemp Power Snacks are made with other organic functional food stars such as chia, maca, lucuma, camu camu, and maqui. They also contain other wholesome raw foods such as date paste, sesame seeds, cashews, and sunflower seeds.
These bite-sized cubes have a healthy whole food appearance, delicious flavor and rich chewy texture. Navitas Power Snacks do not contain refined sugar, preservatives and artificial colors and flavors. This organic snack is also certified gluten-free, and GMO-free and dairy-free.
The Navitas Naturals team will be spreading superfoods love at Naturals Products Expo West in Anaheim, California this weekend (March 9-11). It's sure to be the world's most vibrant organic products event of the year. More than a dozen friendly folks from our staff and national sales network will be there to provide information and share samples of our organic superfoods.
At Expo West, we will be introducing our new Blueberry Hemp Navitas Power Snacks. We're also featuring our new organic Maqui Berry powder for which we did a soft launch at Expo East last fall. We have been building awareness for this antioxidant-rich purple superfruit from Chile over the past few months, and now it's ready for prime time!
The Navitas team is also excited to introduce The Smoothment at Expo West. The Smoothment is our initiative to motivate people to add a nutritious superfoods smoothie into their daily routine in place of a meal or snack. Chef Julie Morris will be making "ChocoMacaNana" and "Bountiful Berry" smoothies at the booth to help refresh and energize the crowd.
Our first online Smoothment program in January featured a series of daily recipe videos called 60-Second Smoothies, and included expert advice on the functional benefits of superfoods in the video recipes. In late March and April, we're taking the Smoothment on the road to stores on the East Coast. Chef Julie Morris will present in-store classes in Boston, New York City, Washington DC and Philadelphia, that feature smoothie recipe demos, superfoods info, sampling and other promotions.
In late April, we'll be kicking off another Spring round of online Smoothment promotions including a new series of 60-Second Smoothie recipe videos and more useful superfoods advice, and prizes. To make sure you don't miss out on all the goodies, visit the blog and Join the Smoothment!

February was a big month for maca in the press, due to Valentine's Day and maca's well-earned reputation as a love food. Dr. Oz profiled maca in an episode on libido enhancers, and the Navitas Naturals Maca bag was on display (with a random sticker over the logo) next to some other interesting aids and remedies.
Maca was also the subject of the article "Eat Your Aphrodisiacs" in the February issue of Organic Spa Magazine. The Medicine Hunter's Maca Mojo Smoothie, a recipe featured in the article and named after famous superfoods expert Chris Kilham, recommends Navitas Naturals organic maca powder as the one to use.
Another buzz-worthy TV clip this month is the KTLA5 (Los Angeles) feature about foods that are good for digestive health. Superfoods expert Dr. Lindsey Duncan profiled the benefits of chia seed, and displayed Navitas Naturals Organic Chia Seeds as his presentation prop.
