Scientific evidence shows that some dietary supplements are beneficial for overall health and for managing some health conditions. For example, calcium and vitamin D are important for keeping bones strong and reducing bone loss; folic acid decreases the risk of certain birth defects; and omega-3 fatty acids from fish oils might help some people with heart disease, according to the National Institutes of Health.
Recently launched for health-conscious people with busy schedules, Wojo Nutrition is a single-serving liquid nutritional supplement that can be easily added to beverages or food. A maximum of two single-servings per day are recommended by the company.
According to Wojo, the supplements are FDA compliant and BPA-free. Designed to deliver natural, balanced energy and boost metabolism, the liquid supplements are based on a blend of six sustainable B vitamins and herbal extracts.
In addition to the convenience factor, the ingredients seem to be safe and sound. They are not loaded with dangerous ingredients, too much sugar, caffeine or stimulants. According to the company’s Web site,
“Wojo has no sugar or other harmful ingredients, including: high fructose corn syrup, sucrose, fructose, sucralose, saccharine, aspartame, caramel color, Blue 1, Blue 2, Green 3, Red 3, Red 40, Yellow 5, Yellow 6, sodium hexametaphosphate, acesulfame potassium, phenylalanine, ephedra, calcium disodium EDTA, sodium benzonate, sodium bicarbonate, sucrose acetate isobutyrate or maltodextrin. And we only include 12 mgs of caffeine per serving (comparable to about one brewed decaf coffee), to remove the ‘jolt’ or heart palpitations that result from most energy drinks. Since we don’t rely on caffeine as the main energy source in wojoENERGY, it can be a healthy addition to your daily coffee.”
Currently, there are two products available for purchase: Their proprietary formula, wojoENERGY, which provides balanced, feel good energy and support throughout the day, and wojoCALM, a soothing way to reduce stress. The company announced that it will release four new offerings this summer, including wojoFOCUS, wojoSUN, wojoWELL, and wojoMOOD.
If you aren’t eating nutritious food, some supplements might help you get adequate amounts of essential nutrients. However, supplements can’t take the place of the variety of foods that are important to a healthy diet. Remember to consult with your doctor or dietitian about your nutritional needs and/or if you suspect that you have a vitamin deficiency.
Founded in June 2012, Wojo Nutrition spent over two years developing their special formulas before bringing them to market in January 2015. Carol Knowles, CEO, launched the brand as a way to provide men and women with a supplement that lets them focus on their journey—not just surviving from day to day. Sometimes that means harnessing more energy, focus, or a better mood to face what’s ahead, and that’s where Wojo gives the body and mind a gentle nudge in the right direction.
