Review: Roots Company

What do a root, an algae, and a mushroom have in common? Roots Company!

These three power players have been combined by Roots Company in the Journey Kit to help keep health a priority by be quick and convenient.

The Journey Kit contains Maca, a root plant found in the Andes mountain region. Their Journey Kit brochure [PDF] states “Maca is a natural adaptogen, which pretty much means it polices your freak out hormones and that’s cool because freaking out isn’t healthy”. I think all moms need a little more maca in their life.

Chlorella is an algae that is like nature’s multi-vitamin. It does all kinds of stuff to help your body heal and get the nutrients it needs.

Coriolus Versicolor is a mushroom that has power that packs a punch by boosting your immune system.

Krista and Jamie tried 10 days with the Journey Kit and here’s what they had to say:

[box] "I love that Roots Co. put together a great blend of organic earth friendly supplements. Being busy with three kids under two it was awesome having everything already separated out for the day also helped. I can't tell you how many bottles of vitamins and other supplements I have in my cabinet because I forget when to take them or I just get too busy. The journey kit has everything ready to go, so it is hard to forget. And I felt like it gave me a little extra boost that I had been missing before." - Jamie [/box]

[box] “What a great company! I love their goals and mission and I love their product! I felt great on the Journey Kit! I felt clearer and stronger and was able to power through the start of a seasonal allergy attack! I, too, loved that each day’s supplements were in their own tiny bags. To make sure you don’t forget, you could write each day or date on the bag. I love what Roots Company is doing!” – Krista[/box]

We love to support small businesses, and what makes this company special is that they give back with each product sold.  A percentage (1%) of each kit’s revenue when sold goes to charity, and their customers get to vote on which of five selected charity gets the donation!  In addition to the 1% from all kits, the Justice Line allows customers to give even more.  Currently, Justice Line kits go to support the Red Thread Movement, an organization fighting the sex trafficking epidemic.  When you purchase this kit, $3 of your purchase goes directly to the Red Thread Movement and you will receive a red thread bracelet that is made by the girls saved from the human trafficking trade (Wow!).

The story behind Roots Company is worth a read.  You’ll hear about how Wendy was stricken with illness that no one could explain and how she used her recovery to create a company that would aim to bring wholeness not just to her own body, but to yours as well.


A big Thank You to Melissa and the rest of the Roots Company team for our Journey Kit trials as well as being an advertising sponsor of The Playdate Crashers!
