Nourish the Skin From Within with ODNOVA

The worlds of health and beauty go hand-in-hand when you are on the journey to wellness. We recently had the chance to test out ODNOVA, a brand that focuses on that products that focus on harmony, balance, and feeling centered.

Using a blend of nutrient-dense botanicals, including medicinal mushrooms and spices as well as phytoplankton, in their quest to change the landscape of the wellness industry for the better. This includes three innovative products, designed to cater to everyone’s individual needs: Glo, Clarity, and Energy. We have been using Glo, a bee pollen formula that is designed to nourish the skin from within thanks. This promotes cell renewal, provides anti-oxidants to the body and supports the body’s natural oxygen usage. And, on a side, note: it is delicious! Just one teaspoon a day is all you need to start the path to renewal. Read on to discover more about ODNOVA from our recent interview:

Interview with ODNOVA

Interview with ODNOVA

Wellness Patterns: How did the idea for Odnova come about?

Odnova: Growing up with a heart condition, finding the right cure was always challenging. Just like 46% of the American population, swallowing pills has always been a challenge for me. Therefore, I created Odnova- the one supplement that provides the body with all the nutrients needed that isn’t in pill form. It is an easy to take supplement that is also delicious and provides micro-nutrients needed on a daily basis.

Wellness Patterns: Why are the blends you focus on so important?

Odnova: From my own personal experiences, I decided to create three blends that are targeted towards a specific function in the mind and body.

17 years ago I struggled with serious depression, having a clear mind and steady mental state was always a challenge, therefore, I created CLARITY. Geared towards brain functionality, CLARITY helps reduce stress, elevates intuitive thinking, increases alertness, and boosts super conductors & neurotransmitters.

GLO was created on the sole purpose of when I moved to Los Angeles, CA, appearance was crucial. I noticed women spent a lot of time and money on improving their skin, and would ask me what I would do to keep my complexion glowing. The one realization I had was your skin was reflective of what you consumed. The ingredients in GLO purify the blood, nourishes the skin, and assists with rebuilding collagen & elastin.

Lastly, ENERGY was shaped because I felt my energy levels depleting and needed a natural source of energy that did not include caffeine. Caffeine has harmful consequences that drain adrenals and overwork the thyroid. Odnova ENERGY is an effective product that provides the body natural and organic nutrients that boost stamina and endurance.

Wellness Patterns: Tell us more about some of the product line?

Odnova: All ODNOVA products are free of gluten, nuts, dairy and sodium while being 100% raw and organic. The core base of ODNOVA is raw honey, but not as you know it. Each of the bee products, (honey, bee pollen, bee propolis and royal jelly) are derived from family owned bee farms in California. Which are then combined with innovative, nutrient dense botanicals including Phytoplankton, Bee Products, Medicinal Mushrooms, Adaptogenic Herbs, Medicinal Spices, Superfoods, and Monoatomic Minerals to create science backed formulas.

Wellness Patterns: How are you different from what’s out there?

Odnova: It is all about delivery and Odnova delivers an easy to consume and delicious alternative to pills. Our products have a low glycemic index and 100% of the bioavailable nutrients are delivered directly to the blood stream. From my research it is the only supplement in the market that combines different types of sciences- Nutrigenomic, Human Genome Project, Ayurveda, Chinese Medicine and Quantum Physics.

These products focus on harmonizing the entire body without overstimulating and draining the organism. Our food intake creates an emotional and physical reaction, our sole purpose is to ensure an equilibrium state.

Wellness Patterns: What’s the best way to incorporate Odnova into one’s day-to-day life?

Odnova: The best thing about Odnova Honey is that fact that you can consume it by itself or within a liquid. I recommend having it on an empty stomach at the start of your day with a liquid of your choice- this can include, water, juice, tea, coffee, or smoothies. If you mix Odnova Honey with your juice or smoothie the drink will become more “adaptogenic.” If you mix it with coffee, the coffee will become more alkalizing as opposed to acidic.

It is also possible to have a flat teaspoon of either formula- this will detoxify the blood from any yeast, candida, or any other toxins.

Wellness Patterns: Anything else to add?

Odnova: Our emphasized ingredient is Marine Phytoplankton Nannochloropsis 1, this ingredient Is not used in any other product sold in the United States. The reason this is our main component is because marine phytoplankton contains omega- 3’s and phospholipids, these are essential nutrients that nourish the brain and support proper neurotransmitter production.
