At Rejuven8 we believe you shouldn’t have to settle when it comes to nutrition and flavor. Why
can’t you have your cake and eat it too?! Our founders, Chef Shauna and Dr. Jason came
together to create a superfood bite free of added sugars, natural flavorings and anything not
working to benefit you. Here’s where the brainchild of Rejuven8 Superfood Bites was dreamed
up. Both Dr. Jason and Chef Shauna understand what real indulgence is and have designed a
protein snack to reflect the needs of not only the body, but the mind.
At first glance, you’d think the term natural is everything it sounds like but let us break it down
for you a bit with 5 reasons why we use whole food ingredients.
1. Whole foods = Proper Digestion
We use whole food protein sources like hemp, chia and collagen because the body can process
them more effectively for day-to-day life or a killer workout. Protein sources like egg are
allergens and can easily irritate the gut. For instance, we use ingredients like cardamom in our
bites because it’s an anti-inflammatory that’s great for treating digestion issues.
2. Quality is Very Important
Chef Shauna is no stranger to quality when she forms a recipe. She’s fueled some of Chicago’s
elite, including Jonathan Toews and Sophia Bush, so quality, taste, smell and texture is at the
top of her list. We believe in using only ingredients that are whole and clean so that with each
bite you’re getting all the benefits like vitamins, nutrients, amino acids and
3. “All Natural” is Poorly Regulated
Now a days you can slap on the sign “Natural Flavors” and a lot of people come running
thinking it’s great for you. The truth is that Ingredients derived from a fruit always have the
possibility to contain chemicals or additives. To keep ingredients in season or fresh it can be
added to assist or mimic the flavor.
The FDA defines a natural flavor as “a substance extracted, distilled or similarly derived from
plant or animal matter, either as is or has been roasted, heated or fermented, and whose
function is for flavor not nutrition.”
4. Chemicals? No Thanks
When the coined term “All Natural” is added into the mix of an ingredient list the transparency
of the product gets blurred. A company simply isn’t required to flesh out what oils, essences,
juices or other products they’re using to create that flavor. These additives enhance the flavor
but don’t add nutritional value, so you might ask yourself; what’s the point?!
5. Fuel Your Life!

time or a motivated athlete looking to keep yourself on track, we’re here for you. Every in
between moment in your busy life should be Rejuven8ting!
