About the company

LoveRaw began life back in May 2013, burnt out and in a passionless investment banking role, I knew something had to change. I moved to the greener pastures of Andalucía, Spain. After experiencing a personal loss, the passing of my father, I decided I wanted to be healthy. Not just for me, but for my family, friends and anyone else who was interested. I discovered the world of organic and the importance of diet. How it affects our body, our thoughts, the way we live & how we feel. There was no looking back, a gradual transition into a wheat, gluten, dairy & sugar free world. I never felt better…how could I share this with more people?
My new loves were weekly farmers markets, experimenting with healthy recipes, superfoods and their potent health benefits. I tested my recipes for months on end, drove my husband crazy, turned the house upside down. LoveRaw was now established. To be honest I had no idea where I wanted LoveRaw to go? I knew I wanted to make great tasting, healthy snacks with clean ingredients and to make them widely available.

About the company

Told from the onset that a plant-based diet wouldn’t cut it on the professional Ironman circuit, Brendan Brazier’s nutritional journey as an uninformed plant-powered endurance athlete began with reduced energy levels and the need to eat constantly.

But Brendan’s stubborn curiosity persevered and after years of research and experimentation, he discovered what sets a top athlete’s performance apart from the competition isn’t training or natural ability alone.  A big difference is nutrition. After intense study, Brendan created a plant-based, whole food diet that helped him recover faster and train harder – propelling him to become a top professional Ironman triathlete.

Constantly on the road competing, Brendan was challenged by both a lack of time and kitchen space to prepare the carefully composed, nutrient-dense, clean, plant-based meals that gave him his edge.  Deep down, he knew there had to be an easier way to get nutrition on-the-go.

And he was right. Over time, Brendan’s vision led to the formulation of the original all-in-one nutritional shake – now known as Vega One – which ultimately inspired the creation of the complete award-winning Vega line of nutritional supplements.

Daily Insight: Appropriate Maca usage brings contentment in life



Cultivated as a vegetable crop, Maca is a plant that is found in the suburbs of Peru, area of high Andes Plateaus Mountains. The fragrance of the Maca is relatively similar to that of butterscotch. It is mostly utilized in the manufacturing of medicines primarily to assist in recovering from anemia, fatigue, weak memory and fertility issues. It is also used by athletes as it gives instant energy and enhances the stamina levels in the body that allows extra mileage.

Maca is also very beneficial for women as it helps them in hormone balancing, symptoms of menopause and menstrual problems. Doctors recommend Maca’s usage for patients who are suffering from osteoporosis (weak bones), leukemia, depression, tuberculosis, stomach cancer and erectile dysfunction. For couples, Maca can prove to be a strong catalyst in arousing sexual behavior and boosting the overall immune system of the body.

Chaka Maka is a fermented drink that is cooked as a remedy for fatigue. It uses Maca as a major ingredient. Apart from baked and roasted Maca products, it can also be incorporated in the making of delicious soups. Moreover, farmers can use Maca as a consumable item for their livestock to increase their fertility rate without any serious side effects.

The company Nood uses Maca in its S01 Maca Bars for making snacks that diminishes hunger cravings in quick succession. Healthy fats, energy and protein are coupled with raw sprouted seeds to give a delicious taste whereas Maca flavor adds the element of stamina and strength.

Cordyceps Maca & Cinnamon (CACAO) is a chocolate that is produced by Anything But Salads and it uses Maca as the core ingredient. It is an organic item that is mostly consumed by athletes during competitions to gather speed and instant energy. Other benefits of chocolate include controlled blood sugar levels and libido enhancement.

Doctors suggest that Maca shouldn’t be used more than 3 grams daily because extracts from Maca can form estrogen that is the leading causes for breast cancer, ovarian cancer, endometriosis and uterine fibroids. Therefore, it is recommended that Maca should be used with precaution and under constant supervision.

Supplement Spotlight: Essential Living Empower Male Masculine Tonic




Empower Male Masculine chi tonic is a blend of cordyceps, maca, ashwagandha, american ginseng, Mucuna and fenugreek.




Source & Process
Certified Organic

Essential Living Foods is committed to providing foods of the highest quality, purity, and nutrient density, and every ingredient is sustainably sourced to improve the health of the planet and its people.

Traditional Chinese Wisdom
Cordyceps are an edible and medicinal mushroom-like fungus that has been described in ancient Chinese and Tibetan medical literature as the treatment for many ailments, yet are most well known as an aphrodisiac. More recently a study at Stanford medical school found an increase of the 17-ketosteroid in the urine of men taking it, which indicates an increase in the subject's sexual drive and function and directly affects the sexual center of the brain and sexual organs. Controlled animal tests offer credible evidence that regular use decreases recovery time between orgasms and increases the volume of semen production. In another study on human subjects, 64 percent of Cordyceps eaters reported an enhanced sex drive.


The sexy radish
One of many systems governed by the hypothalamus-pituitary axis is the body's sexual hormone cascade, and abundant research has suggested that maca helps to support healthy function here. A 2001 study at Universidad Peruana demonstrated that men who consumed Maca saw an 85% increase in total sperm count, in addition to an increased sperm motility and motile sperm quantity (more than 100%). The clinical study additionaly showed that the superfood does not alter hormone levels. A Chinese study at Shenhyang Medical College studied Maca’s effects on mice, demonstrating that the number of complete intromissions of normal mice increased (4x higher than the control group), sperm-positive females increased (2.5x higher than the control group), and the latent period of erection (LPE) in rats with erectile dysfunction decreased. A study conducted at the University of Modena confirmed similar effects.


Ayurvedic Wisdom
Ashwagandha is a plant that is considered to be one of the most powerfully healing substances in Ayurvedic medicine. In its native regions it has been used medicinally for thousands of years for its restorative and stress relieving effects. Over 200 studies have been performed on the effects of ashwagandha, uncovering additional benefits including immune protection, improved memory and reaction time, blood sugar stabilization, anti-inflammatory effects, improved brain health, reduced anxiety, improved digestive function and enhanced sexual potency. Ashwagandha is also used as a general tonic to promote overall health and balanced wellness in the body. Because it is iron-rich, Ashwagandha is also used to build blood and promote improved circulation and energy production. Recent research is focusing on the potential anti-cancer benefits of the plant as well, showing that Ashwagandha may decrease the growth rate of cancer cells and the overall size of some cancerous tumors.


Kapi Kachuh aka Mucuna Pruriens
Historically this tropical legume, popular in Ayurvedic medicine, has been used to elevate sperm count and function as an aphrodisiac. Due to significant antioxidant activity in the plant, Mucuna-Kapi Kachu has been found to inhibit the oxidation of lipids in the body and promote healthy neurotransmitter function. Mucuna-Kapi Kachu is well known in medical communities for its action as an L-dopa precursor, helping to promote dopamine production which may improve mood, muscle coordination and sexual function and have a positive effect on individuals with Parkinson’s disease. Additional effects of the legume include improved muscle building and strength, heightened focus and alertness, improved coordination and support for male fertility.

Energizing, anti-fatigue effects
Immune-boosting, cleansing
Relaxation of lung and vascular tissue • Cholesterol reduction
