How the Benefits of Raw Food Helped Start a Raw Vegan Protein & Superfood Company

The Benefits of Raw Food Are Vast. Get More Vitamins, Minerals and Energy From Your Food.

Three men set out on their journeys in this world of continuous change. They were working out their individual paths, learning and growing. Two of the men had experienced major health issues in their youth. The other, after years of bodybuilding, started to feel his joints stiffen, and he became concerned about the buildup of uric acid from animal-based proteins.

For the two who faced dire health consequences, the choice to eliminate processed foods became essential for their survival. The third man wanted flexibility and to continue receiving gains from his workouts. Each of these three men found themselves studying nature and discovered the benefits of raw food.

Some of the benefits of raw food are:

  • Relieves heartburn
  • Increases blood flow
  • Increases energy
  • Improves flexibility
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Increases immune health
  • Improves digestion
  • Promotes healthy weight loss
  • Controls blood pressure
  • Lowers chance of chronic disease like type 2 diabetes, hyperglycemia, kidney disease, cancer, osteoporosis, stroke, arthritis, allergies, headaches, and heart failure.

These men’s journeys brought them together at a raw food festival in Sedona, Arizona in 2007. They shared their experiences, and the bodybuilder suggested that the other two needed more protein to get the gains they sought. That discussion created a new chapter in their lives. Their passion for health and the common embrace of raw food started a friendship.

Over the next several months, they met with other thought leaders in the vegan and raw food communities, created a raw vegan protein powder, and launched Sunwarrior. Their commitment to developing clean, plant-based proteins and superfood supplements to improve the lives and health of others became their mission: to nourish and transform the planet, one Sunwarrior at a time.

They continue to get a high percentage of their calories from raw food and seek new raw ingredients that promote natural health and longevity.
