I’m really excited to write this blog. I wanted to be able to explain how I felt over time using the Power Dust. I’ve been putting the Power Dust powder by Moon Juice in my coffee (black, no sugar, no cream) for months now and it’s been a real treat. I discovered Moon Juice products while browsing in a store with a friend while in Manhattan.
Their sachets of the powders were by the register, I was intrigued by the packaging (as it’s for helping in entrepreneurial feats), and figured I would give it a try. Because drinking Power Dust has resulted in me feeling relaxed, among other things I’ll explain below, I also plan on using Moon Juice’s other products, like the Beauty and Sex Dust. It’s as if I’m about to embark on more spiritual and mental journeys!

WHAT EXACTLY IS POWER DUST?
Power Dust is an edible powder that you can put in your food or drink. I have only put the Power Dust in my coffee. If you have tried it in your food, let me know how that is working for you! Per moonjuice.com, Power Dust is an adaptogenic blend of elite super herbs and super mushrooms that help combat the effects of stress to fuel your physical and entrepreneurial feats. It contains ingredients with proven benefits, such as boosting energy and reduces fatigue, helping to restore and sustain energy levels, and supporting healthy cardiovascular function. What’s not to love, especially if you’re an entrepreneur!
5 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD DRINK POWER DUST
- Life In HD
The very first time I used the Power Dust I felt like my vision was clearer and my mind was sharper. The plan was to put the Power Dust in my coffee and read, Women Who Run With Wolves (I talked about this book in a previous post). I remember looking around my living room in amazement of my vision. I wear contacts so I know when something is clearer!
At the time, I had purchased a couple of sachets of the Power Dust to see if I would like it. So I was amazed how powerful it was from the use of one sachet. I thought to myself, “If this is the powerful result I receive while causally drinking the Power Dust, I wonder what would happen if I drunk it intentionally?” Naturally, I purchased the jar.
- Adaptogenic Power
I recently learned about what adaptogenic is and its power. Adaptogens help with reducing stress, fatigue, and, my favorite thing to rid the body of, free radicals. Free radicals are damaging to the body and are believed to contribute to heart disease and some cancers.
Per bewell.com, adaptogens are herbs that help the body:
Adaptogens are a unique group of herbal ingredients used to improve the health of your adrenal system, the system that’s in charge of managing your body’s hormonal response to stress. They help strengthen the body’s response to stress and enhance its ability to cope with anxiety and fight fatigue – slowly and gently, without jolts or crashes. They’re called adaptogens because of their unique ability to “adapt” their function according to your body’s specific needs.
In addition, bewell.com, explains how adaptogens work:
Adaptogens work a bit like a thermostat. When the thermostat senses that the room temperature is too high it brings it down; when the temperature is too low it brings it up. Adaptogens can calm you down and boost your energy at the same time without over stimulating. They can normalize body imbalances. By supporting adrenal function, they counteract the adverse effects of stress. They enable the body’s cells to access more energy; help cells eliminate toxic byproducts of the metabolic process and help the body to utilize oxygen more efficiently.
I can definitely get on board with this!
- Ashwagandha Root
Another thing I’m learning about and learning how to pronounce. The herb Ashwagandha is pronounced as Ash-wa-gond-da. Phew. That’s after weeding out several wrong pronunciations online. Let’s say it again, Ash-wa-gond-da. Okay. Now, we are cookin’!
According to organicfacts.net, Ashwagandha is the bees-knees for reducing:
- Cholesterol levels
It also serves us in many ways:
- Acts as an anti-inflammatory
- Promotes muscle growth
- Stimulates the thyroid gland
- Increases blood production
- Prevents seizures
This isn’t new age stuff, Spiritual Trailblazer. Ashwagandha has been around for centuries and used in countries such as India, China, throughout Africa and the Americas.
I used to study the origin of words, so I was excited to learn that in Sanskrit Ashwagandha means the odor of a horse. How’s that for some trivia?
- Super Mushrooms
I am familiar with the benefits of mushrooms. Mushrooms are great for boosting the immune systems, reducing blood pressure, and strengthening our skeletal system. Super mushrooms are a collection of the helpful mushrooms. Again, what’s not to love?
- Energy Boost Sans Crashing
What a relief it is to know that the boost in clarity and relief from stress will not end with a crash, leaving us with various emotions and thoughts running amok.
WHY I LOVE IT
As I stated briefly above, using Power Dust in my coffee caused immediate results of seeing and thinking clearer. But those aren’t the only reasons why I love the Power Dust. Being an entrepreneur, it’s so easy to be on the brink of becoming burnt out. I’m not expressing that you have to be an entrepreneur for this to happen but I’m an entrepreneur speaking from that perspective at the moment.
The crazy thing about being on that brink is that it goes unrecognized because we are doing something we love, so we have massive amounts of energy to burn, but our bodies need rest. Taking it a little further, our minds need relief and our eyes need a break. That’s where the Power Dust comes in.
The Power Dust is that kind reminder to take a chill pill. Feeling intense gets reduce and it becomes a bit clear that now is the time for a mini-break. The Power Dust provides relief without the harmful or unwanted side effects we have come to learn about over the years.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
- The taste is subtle. I personally didn’t mind the slightly sweet taste of the Power Dust in my coffee. It’s not overpowering. It’s definitely not the old school powder you put in your drink that taste chalky or just plain ol’ nasty.
- It’s reasonably priced and last long. The price of one jar is 1.5 oz jar is $38.00 or you can get the sachets for $35 and they come 12 in a box. Or, you can go to your local spiritual/holistic store and purchase the single sachets for a few bucks.
- Still, consult your doctor. I don’t know your medical condition. I’m presenting to you what has worked for me. It’s always best to consult your physician before incorporating herbs and fungi (mushrooms) into your eating lifestyle. For example, it’s advised NOT to take fish oil pills before surgery.
- It’s not FDA approved. Just because something isn’t FDA approved doesn’t mean it’s all bad just like if something is approved by the FDA doesn’t make it all good. Sometimes, it’s due to different standards we have in the US as opposed to in other countries. Some of the ingredients are mostly used throughout Asia while it’s still not a big thing the US.
