Raw SuperFood Mix (RPSFM) was developed by one person with a whole team of friends & peers (doctors, nutritionists, scientists, athletes, personal trainers, and a chef) providing input, feedback, and coaching him on. Several members of the core group went through medical school together.
Frustrated by the extremely long hours associated with the grueling demands of medical training, studying for national board exams, and doing their clinical & hospital rotations, together with the poor quality food available at most of those locations; something had to give. Working so many hours made it was very challenging to buy & prepare healthy meals (not to mention setting aside time for exercise and sleep!). Out of desperation, Max, having had previous experience as the owner of a natural food restaurant, decided to spend several hours on a rare day off, seeing what he could come up with as a solution.
After over a dozen attempts, the second iteration of Raw Power SuperFood Mix was born. (You see, there had been an earlier version, circa 1979 when he was going through Naturopathic training. Unfortunately, that version was a bit heavy on the garlic (a well-recognized superfood) and for obvious reasons it never caught on.) This newer version, circa 1995, remained in almost constant use while undergoing hundreds of tweaks & updates as new information and ingredients became available. The mix has been used in the nutritionally-oriented medical practices of several of the core group members over the past 15+ years with excellent results. Finally, Max was in a position to bring the product into production. The hope is that this product can have a major impact on the health of those using it and, if it really catches on, it can help to reverse many of the serious health challenges facing our nation due to poor dietary choices and the SAD (Standard American Diet).
The core group is still in communication and all continue to both use the product and provide input and feedback on ways to make it even better as new research becomes available. At one time there were 5 different versions (with different protein sources) and 6 flavor variations. Eventually, one version took off and became the top favorite by far. That is the Pumpkin Seed Protein version. Four flavors also stood out as the most popular, Natural, Unsweetened, Chocolate Brownie, & Peanut Butter. Recently we chose to simplify our offerings to increase efficiency and now emphasize only the Pumpkin Protein version in those 4 flavors. The Natural & Unsweetened can easily be customized and flavored to suit your taste preferences.
Additionally, several other innovations are in the works including the addition of special added nutrient blends to more specifically address some of the most pressing health challenges facing our society. Very soon, rather than popping a bunch of supplement pills, you’ll be able to eat your key nutrients as part of your Raw Power SuperFood Mix meal, snack, or treat.
