This January, we are Giving The Process: For each of the first 30 days of the month, we’re highlighting something—and someone—amazing in the wellness world, representing the beauty, health, style, creative, energetic and/or spiritual boost you need to make yourself a priority in the new year—and decade. On January 31, one charmed follower will win one of every item and ritual we highlight, including a $1,000 gift card for Live The Process!
They say it takes 30 days to create a habit—sign ups for our newsletter, follow us on IG and tell us how you’re hoping to make taking care of your physical, emotional, intellectual and/or spiritual self a priority this year—to make 2020 about self-care without guilt.
Today’s gift is Superstar by Mija.
My name is: Sarah Koszyk, MA, RDN.
I’m known for being: A board-certified registered dietitian and sports nutritionist—and co-founder of Mija.
You can find it: Online at mijanaturals.com or at specialty boutiques in the Bay Area, California.
What inspired me to create it/develop it was: As a board-certified registered dietitian nutritionist, I wanted to make a safe, clinically-backed supplement that I’d feel good in recommending to my clients. Even though my clients eat extremely healthy, I noticed they still had common dietary deficiencies as a result of the modern-day lifestyle. Using my private practice to draw data points, I developed Superstar to fill the universal nutritional gaps and dietary shortfalls using the highest quality, whole food, plant-based ingredients in precise ratios to optimize people’s health and wellness from the inside and out.
What makes it special is: Not all powders are the same. We worked with performance labs to develop proprietary extraction techniques to ensure that we’d get the full spectrum of plant nutrients in their most bioavailable form for our supplement.
One thing you can’t miss is: The base of Superstar is made with organic, ceremonial-grade matcha sourced from the Uji prefecture, which produces the rarest and most prized matcha that can sell for over its weight in gold. Together with organic golden hemp seed, they deliver this calm focus zen that Buddhist monks used for meditation.
Your body will thank you because: Just two teaspoons a day of this delicious supplement is all you need to activate wellness from within. Being a nutrition expert, I’ve made sure that every ingredient has an evidence-based, scientifically-backed purpose. Superstar:
- Decreases the damaging effects of stress on the body with its adaptogenic formula
- Increases energy, stamina and vitality
- Optimizes mental clarity
- Promotes anti-aging benefits for skin health and beauty
- Balances the gut and detoxifies the liver
- Boosts the immune system and provides complete wellness from within
This will help you prioritize your own health, joy and energy this year because: Prioritizing our health is a daily journey and it starts from within. Taking Superstar daily is an easy step to add and will ensure that all the necessary, yet hard-to-get, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phytochemicals for optimal health are consumed, regardless of what the day may bring. Whether you’re on-the-go or have the luxury of some self-care time, enjoying a tasty Superstar-infused drink is nourishing, easy and pleasurable.
One way I plan to put myself first more this year is: To get out of the office and be more active. Getting in delicious and nutritious eats is easier for me because it’s my job! But with my private practice and Mija, it can be challenging to get out and enjoy the Bay Area weather. So, I’m actively making time in my calendar for yoga classes, enjoying a swim or going for a run in the park. By adding in workouts as appointments in my busy schedule, I’m able to consciously set aside time for myself and my fitness.
