Detox & Anti-Aging

If you follow current dietary trends, you probably have heard about the “Detox Cleanse”, “48-Hour Weekend Cleanser” and many other detox regimens. Trained as a medical researcher, I always like to weigh how effective these regiments actually are? What are the mechanisms behind each? What are the potential adverse effects? And most importantly, is detox itself even necessary? I am [...]

Karuna Holiday Drinking Tips: How much alcohol is bad for you?

I love December: It is the most wonderful time of the year! We are closing out another wonderful year with celebrations and cheers with colleagues, friends and families, we are surrounded with holiday music, gifts and parties. During these wonderful moments we probably will be sipping down more alcohol than any other times of the year. So how much [...]

Why It’s Best not to Beef up Your Meat Intake

New research papers on red meat consumption have stirred up controversy lately.1 The papers, published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, say that the average adult can continue to eat both red and processed meat at typical levels.2 This runs contrary to current recommendations to limit intake of meat.3 So does that mean that a diet low in meat is [...]

How to Survive The Cold & Flue Season

It is October, the colorful and fun Halloween decorations are popping up everywhere, a nice indicator of who is a planner and who is the last-minute doer, or who is simply too busy to think about Halloween yet. Although we’re technically well into autumn, the last few waves of summer heat are still with us. In the Traditional Chinese Medicine, [...]

Is Reducing Processed Food and Toxins the Key to Weight Loss?

A common weight loss mantra, ”calories in, calories out,” has been taking some heat lately. This saying, which means that you have to burn more calories than you consume, holds some obvious truth, but does not tell the whole story. Not all calories are created equal - calories from protein and fiber, for example, will keep you full longer than [...]

Understanding Fats, Carbs and Heart Disease

I got questions from many consumers on how to lower their cholesterol level and the meanings of good LDLs versus bad LDL. In order to answer these questions, we need to take a deeper look into the history of low-fat diet. In the 1950s, the well-known American scientist Ancel Keys made a correlation between dietary cholesterol and heart disease in [...]

"My very favorite drinks are Karuna smoothies. They are delicious – and very healthy. My health coach is thrilled that these are my choices rather than things chocolate, and they are helping keep my weight under control."
"I drink Detox on Sunday morning, and then I have a Karuna Smoothie pretty much everyday. I like the natural Protein and I feel constant energy without the highs and lows. Now that I understand Prebiotics, it all makes sense. Without the right Prebiotic fuel – the Probiotics aren’t as effective. Karuna just makes good sense!"

"The Organic Mung Bean Sprout & Aronia Berry drink greatly reduces the inflammation and pain I've had in my abdominal and intestinal areas, since having surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation treatments for Colon Cancer. Prior to drinking this, I experienced significant abdominal pain and bloating on a daily basis. The many health benefits of this drink are amazing and an essential part of my wellness routine."
Customer Testimonial
"I’ve been enjoying Karuna drinks for about a year now. The benefits have been very evident. The power detox helped me immensely with seasonal allergies last year. After drinking the detox regularly for about 4 months, I no longer needed to take over the counter allergy medicine. The coffee with turmeric has been a great pain reliever working faster for me than any pain medication I’ve taken. The protein shakes are delicious and filling - the best meal replacements I’ve ever had."
