What we think
Your morning breakfast routine is about to get a major upgrade.
This is the best morning superfood shake we've ever tried. We liked it so much, we bought the company.
If you've struggled for years to find the perfect breakfast routine –one that is nutritionally dense, reliable, and easy– this is your remedy. We know what it's like: you are either left too full to get in a good workout or running out of energy just as the workout was getting good, because your breakfast wasn't enough.
Then we found Kyoku. We started blending one Kyoku shake at breakfast and it really was game-changing.
What's It Like?
- Stay satiated well until the afternoon
- Stay fueled for the day and your workouts
- No cravings to snack or binge later in the day
- Increase your daily vegetable/micronutrient intake by massive %
The real impact is in the workouts. Kyoku shake keeps you fueled for multi-hour workouts with no hunger during or after.
To learn more, Matt (owner) tested his body's glucose response for a month wearing a Supersapians Continous Glucose Monitor. "After a Kyoku shake, I had almost no insulin spike and would maintain stable blood glucose levels for hours afterward."
The Best Part
It tastes great. For the record, we know superfood shakes can taste just "eh". Even if you're not exactly a big "veggie" kind of person, we promise you'lI love the flavor.
"I wasn't joking when I said I bought the company. I knew this was something that we had to make available to every Feed Athlete." - Matt
What's in Kyoku?
Kyoku is made from 16 different superfoods including:
- Greens: Broccoli, Spinach, Green Pepper, Collards
- Carbs & Protein: ChickPea, Peas, Brown Rice, Hemp Seeds, Sweet Potatoes, and Chia Seeds
- Performance: Black Pepper, Beet Root, Ashwagandha
- Recovery: Turmeric, Tart Cherry, Quercetin from Apples.
Kyoku's price is what made me fall in love with it.
I think about it this way: Kyoku is my primary fuel for more than half my day, this is not where I'm trying to save a few dollars to have lower-quality ingredients. I want the best I can get, regardless of price.
As a business decision, this was probably a terrible idea on Kyoku's part. All of the other superfood / green shake companies have ingredients that cost a fraction of the price of Kyoku and as result, these companies also make crazy profits.
As an athlete and daily user, Kyoku's decision to only get the best ingredients regardless of price and profit was the right decision in my book.
The Kyoku Process
The Kyoku team hand-picked farms for each fruit and vegetable, flash froze them on site and then used a heating process to dehydrate each ingredient. From here it is blended and mixed into what you get in each Kyoku packet.
It is a time-consuming and very expensive process, but the result is an honest product with honest to goodness amazing ingredients.
How to Use Kyoku:
You can use Kyoku any time of day, but we prefer it as part of the morning routine. Blend it with 12-14 oz of your milk of choice (we like Oat and Almond) and a handful of ice for an amazing smoothie.
Dr. Kevin Sprouse, who help Matt vet Kyoku before we purchased it, likes to use Kyoku at lunch between a busy schedule with patients and when he is traveling. In fact, he just packed up his bag with it for the Tour de France.
