Q - Are there any drug interactions with superfood?
A - A couple of the superfood ingredients (alfalfa and chlorella) should not be taken with blood thinning agents. Other than that, the other ingredients have no known drug interactions.
Q - Is superfood safe during pregnancy?
A - Yes, superfood is safe for pregnant and lactating women, as long as she is not taking blood thinning agents. (See the question about drug interactions above.)
Q - Are the superfood ingredients organic?
A - Yes, most of them are organic. The sea vegetables (spirulina, chlorella, and purple dulse) are technically wildcrafted or 'grown without chemicals' as is the acerola powder. Wildcrafted simply means those ingredients are harvested from the wild rather than cultivated.
Q - I have heard that Chlorella is such a good extractor that it can have toxins already in it if the growing conditions aren't pristine. What are the growing conditions of your chlorella?
A - Our chlorella is grown using the dark culturing method, which is inside, so the chlorella is not exposed to pollution that can be brought by rain, animals and bacteria. Our chlorella does not need to be broken to increase digestibility. It's thinner and softer and has about 80% digestibility without breaking.
Other chlorellas are produced in outdoor ponds, which leaves the product exposed to possible pollutants and other influences like un-ideal temperatures and weather.
Q - What is the maximum temperature the superfood powders reach during the drying process?
A - All of the ingredients are dried at temperatures at or below 105 degrees.
