What is a superfood?
A superfood is a food that is especially nutrient-dense and is highly beneficial for health and wellbeing. There are many foods that have earned the title of “superfood” and Philosophie products combine some of the world’s most potent superfoods to make it easier than ever to achieve optimal nutrition and health.
What is in the Superfood + Protein Blends?
Each of the Philosophie Superfood + Protein Blends is vegan, raw, gluten-free, nut-free, and has absolutely no filler ingredients. The detoxifying Green Dream blend, beautifying Berry Bliss blend, and energizing Cacao Magic blend contain nothing but the purest, most healing superfoods. When the body receives optimal nourishment from these wholesome, plant-based sources of protein, vitamins, and minerals, it more readily releases unneeded material and toxins leaving you feeling renewed and vibrantly healthy. To learn more about the superfoods that are included in our blends, check out the Benefits of Superfood + Protein Blend Ingredients article on the Philosophie blog.
Which superfood blend is right for me?
Each superfood blend has a unique combination of nutrient-rich ingredients that will nourish and revitalize your body. All three blends contain 10 grams of plant-based protein per serving making them excellent for anyone who wants to build or maintain healthy muscle mass. Green Dream is packed with Spirulina making it ideal for detoxification and weight loss. Cacao Magic contains Reishii mushroom, which has been studied for its countless health benefits, including anti-cancer properties, neuroprotective properties, and lifespan extending properties. Berry Bliss contains a mix of berries that are particularly high in antioxidants and can promote healthy skin, nails, and hair, as well as camu camu, the most potent natural source of immunity-boosting Vitamin C on earth! We like to have a dose of each one every day to receive the unique healing benefits of each one!

Do Philosophie products have caffeine in them?
Philosophie products contain absolutely no additives or fillers. Our Superfood + Protein blends are made of only raw superfoods that have been finely ground so that they can be easily added to any and all foods. While some of the superfoods in our blends, such as cacao, maca, and spirulina have been reported to have energy-boosting properties, we do not add any artificial or processed stimulants, such as caffeine or sugar, to our products. Most of our customers report feeling a refreshing boost in energy levels without the jitteriness or crash that often comes with consumption of caffeine or sugar. Of course, each body is unique, so if you have any concerns about the potential stimulatory effects of the ingredients in our products, we suggest that you start with a lower dose to determine your level of sensitivity.
Is Maca safe?
Maca is a radish-like root vegetable that grows in the high plateaus of the Peruvian Andes and has been a source of nutrition and healing for the indigenous peoples of this region for thousands of years. It is an incredibly potent superfood that is rich in fiber, protein, and a plethora of nutrients that promote physical, mental, and emotional health.
Maca is an excellent source of calcium, iron, zinc, and magnesium, minerals that are absolutely essential for vital bodily functions, and it is has been used by many people to promote reproductive health. While Maca does not contain hormones, it provides a unique set of nutrients that strengthens the organs and glands that produce and regulate hormones.
Just like Philosophie creator Sophie Jaffe, many Philosophie customers have enjoyed the nourishing benefits of Philosophie superfood products during pregnancies, while breastfeeding, and as a way to add nutrients to their children’s foods from infancy onward; however, as with any supplement, maca is not appropriate for everyone and could potentially cause problems for some individuals. It is best to consult with your doctor before adding maca to your diet if you are pregnant, breast-feeding, suffering from or at high risk of hormone-sensitive diseases, impaired thyroid function, liver disease, or kidney disease or if you have concerns about the effects of adding maca to your diet or your child’s diet.

What can I expect when I do the Philosophie cleanse?
The Philosophie 5 and 14-day DIY cleanses and the 3 and 5-day pre-made cleanses are an effective and healthy way to detoxify the body and lose weight, so that you can look and feel your absolute best. While many cleanses deprive the body and leave it feeling weak and unsatisfied, the Philosophie Cleanses are full of fiber, protein, and healthy fats, which help curb hunger while saturating the body with fresh, restorative ingredients in order to reach an optimum and enduring state of wellness and beauty.
While the Philosophie cleanses are designed to help your body return to its natural state of health, it is common for the first 1-3 days to be the most difficult. Some people do experience headaches and/or decreased energy as the body adjusts and begins to release toxins; however, most people report feeling a shift by the third day, at which point the body begins to feel lighter and more energized. For more detailed information, check out the following blog post on What to Expect During a Philosophie Cleanse
Are there any instructions included with the cleanses?
Once you place your order for a cleanse, you should receive an email with a booklet of instructions, recipes, and helpful tips for a successful cleanse within 1-2 days.
If I want to start my cleanse on a specific day, how many days beforehand should I place my order?
Premade cleanses are flash frozen and shipped via 1-2 day ground shipping. We recommend that you place your order 5-7 business days before you would like to begin your cleanse to allow time for processing and shipping. If your cleanse arrives early, you may store it in the freezer until you are ready to begin your cleanse.
I just received my cleanse. Do I have to start it right away?
You can start the cleanse any time! The products included in your DIY cleanse package are good for 6 months to a year. The prepared cleanse arrives flash frozen and will last in the freezer for up to 1 month. Simply defrost items at least 12 hours prior to, but no longer than 2 days before, consumption.
If I fall off of the wagon during my cleanse, can I just pick up where I left off or should I start over?
While you will receive the most profound results from a cleanse if you do not veer off of the program, the benefits of the cleanse will not be completely negated if you fall off the wagon briefly. We know that circumstances can arise that make it difficult to stay 100% true to a cleanse, and we recommend that you simply resume the cleanse as soon as possible. For tips on how to stay on track during a cleanse, check out Sophie’s blog article on What to Expect During a Cleanse.
What ingredients do the cleanse supplement pills contain?
The supplement pills that are included in your cleanse are Garden of Life RAW Probiotic pills. They contain 85 billion live cultures, 32 probiotic strains, prebiotics, vitamins, minerals, and enzymes that will help your gut return to its optimal state of health. The supplement pills are raw, gluten-free, contain no soy allergens, binders, fillers, or carriers.
Is the group cleanse packaged individually for each person or will we have to share the products?
The group cleanse is 4 individual 5-day DIY cleanses that are shipped in a single box to one destination at a discounted price. Upon arrival, cleanse participants can each take 1 individually packaged cleanse, so it will not be necessary to share products.
Is it safe to do a cleanse while I am pregnant or breastfeeding?
With a few adjustments, Philosophie cleanses should be safe for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, should omit the detox teas that are typically included in the cleanses. Because women who are pregnant or breastfeeding have increased caloric needs, they should add an extra 300-500 calories per day to their diet by increasing the calories of some of their meals or by adding an additional snack. As always, we suggest that anyone undergoing a cleanse should listen to their body and we recommend that women consult with their doctor if they have any concerns about undergoing a cleanse while pregnant or breastfeeding.
Can I pick up my premade cleanse to avoid shipping charges?
Premade cleanses are currently only available via delivery and may not be picked up.
