“Simply put, we believe BōkU superfoods are the healthiest thing a person could possibly consume. ”

The Problem


Consumers lack access to  healthy foods at  reasonable prices

We are increasingly over-fed yet malnourished and sickened, while our food supply is being poisoned by processed factory farming and greedy corporations. Our soils are being decimated and stripped of life forming minerals and the produce we consume is often loaded with toxic pesticides and way over-priced.

 

In today’s fast paced world there seems to be little time available to focus on proper nutrition and healthy meals while we’re inundated with advertising to convince us that the garbage we’re subsisting on is good for us.

 

All of this makes pure, health forming nutrition a rare indulgence limited to the chosen few and virtually inaccessible for the average person.

The Solution


BōKU sources  only the world’s finest ingredients

BōKU has spent years cultivating our standards as purveyors of the world’s finest superfoods. We’ve created award winning, doctor formulated blends to offer nutrient dense, health forming alternatives to conventional processed foods. 

 

Our ingredients are sourced from the most pristine soils on earth and from farmers we have forged relationships with over nearly 15 years.  These ancient superfoods include greens, sprouts, berries, fruits, plant-based proteins and mushrooms.  In fact, Bōku has been offering a proprietary blend of immune boosting ancient mushrooms since our inception back in 2007. 

 

These precious ingredients are simply harvested fresh, dried at low temperature and powdered. The consumer need only replace the water we take out in the drying process, “Shake it and Take it”.  Bōku Superfood powders are designed to be blended deliciously together and also make amazing smoothies.

 

We sell USDA certified Organic, kosher and vegan superfoods designed to help people live happier, healthier lives and rely less on harmful, synthetic foods and drugs.

The Market


The market is trending upward

Our products appeal to all of the hottest health trends: Natural Immune Boosting, Intermittent Fasting, Ketogenic Diet, Vegan/Plant-Based Diets, Organic foods, Superfoods!

 

Organic food sales in the U.S. totaled around $43 billion in 2016, with almost 30% in the direct-to-consumer category. This is an increase of $3.3 billion (8.4%) over the prior year, marking the first time the organic food market has broken through the $40-billion mark. Following Amazon’s recent acquisition of Whole Foods, this trend is expected to continue. The $15.6-billion organic fruits and vegetables sector held onto its position as the largest of the organic food categories, accounting for almost 40 percent of all organic food sales while vegan superfood powders has grown 360% over the past decade.

 

The superfoods market is in the midst of a growth stage — from 2018 to 2023 the market for superfoods is expected to undergo a compound annual growth of 17 percent (much higher than the expected overall market growth over this period). 

 

According to Technavio’s report on the industry, North America is poised to be a hotbed for the superfood category with the market size for meal replacement bars and shakes estimated at over $16B.

Eco-Friendly and Compostable Packaging!

Our Traction


We’re a trusted brand with an excellent track record

  • $800+ average mean revenue per customer since 2008

  • 70,000+ healthy customers since 2007

  • Nearly 15 years of intense pioneering and branding, with over $17.5 Million in Sales


Since our explosive start in 2007 we’ve been lauded by leading industry professionals (2008 Editor’s Choice Award Winner), as well as dedicated customers. Our products have such a high satisfaction rate among our clients, that our first 15,000 customers were all acquired by word-of-mouth. 


In 2015 we launched our television campaign, which has allowed us to educate millions on the positive benefits of our products. This eventually led to 55,000 more customers using our superfoods.


Nutritiously Delicious


We focus on proprietary, Dr. formulated blends of the absolute highest quality  ingredients on earth

Our team includes the most brilliant minds in the space, including renowned naturopathic medical doctor BJ Adrezin and perhaps the world’s greatest intuitive plant-based formulator, Reno Rollé Jr., who completed the T. Colin Campbell program at Cornell University where he earned his plant-based nutrition certification. 


The magic of Boku lies in the specific combination of ingredients honoring both ancient ayurvedic tradition and cutting edge food science.  We believe Boku’s highly proprietary recipes have likely inspired countless imitations by companies much larger than ours.  In our opinion, none , have come even close to Boku.  We have literally defined the intersection where intensely nutritious, meets astonishingly delicious. 

The Business Model


Superfoods transcend market segments

We combine multiple high-yield sales channels to incorporate our superfoods into the lives of as many people as possible. 


We offer a discount on our website to consumers who sign up for a monthly subscription service, which allows us to form long-lasting and reliable relationships with our customers.


Our products are also sold through Amazon and email marketing campaigns, hyper targeted to the different segments we appeal to. With interest and focus on all of the latest and greatest health trends, our segmentation has been key.


Additionally our influencer/social media strategy leverages authentic endorsements to reach wider audiences. Our influencer program includes NBA star, Kyle Kuzma (Los Angeles Lakers), Guiness World Record  holder Michelle Graglia, and multiple endurance sports superstars and athletic influencers.


We’ve expanded internationally, and are focused heavily on entering the athletics and pet market, because we believe there are no boundaries to what superfoods can accomplish — whether that means increasing athletic performance or giving your pet a long and healthy life.

How We Are Different


We believe in superfoods because they changed our lives

We aren’t just hopping on the superfood bandwagon, we’ve been in the game for almost 25 years when we learned that our son was having issues focusing in the classroom. Rather than dose him up with the conventional meds America has become all-too-comfortable prescribing to our children, we sought out a natural, non-drug alternative, discovered superfoods and watched him thrive and evolve into the amazing person he is today – without DRUGS!

 

In 2007 we launched BōkU, a brand dedicated to the nutritionally underserved. We spent years experimenting, testing and adapting our products to get them to where they are today.  We believe this experience cannot be replicated by newer companies that simply raise a bunch of money and jump into the game trying to exploit a trend.  From our industry leading formulas and unrivaled customer experiences, we have built a proven brand.  Our customers keep coming back because they know we make the absolute best superfood products in the world. 

The Vision


Our goal is to  be the world’s preeminent superfood brand

Over the last decade-plus, we’ve learned the ins-and-outs of the superfood industry, gaining unprecedented knowledge of the market. Our years of experience, industry leading formulas and established brand recognition provide our competitive advantage.  Now it’s time to leverage all that we’ve learned to scale aggressively and fulfill our mission.

 

We plan to streamline our process and upgrade bulk purchasing substantially to reduce costs and increase margins as we double down on our proven track record. 

 

We will be making key hires in our marketing, finance and operations departments ahead of our push to rapidly grow our digital marketing campaigns. 

 

With your investment we will:

    • Bolster our in-house marketing/customer acquisition/management team
    • Build a robust influencer network
    • Further optimize BōKU® Box Auto-Delivery subscriptions 
    • Continue international expansion
    • Build Enterprise Sales division to exploit lucrative new channels
    • Innovate new products (pets, etc)

Our Team


We live what we preach

We want to share with the world the same benefits that we have been lucky enough to receive from superfoods.

Why Invest


Superfoods are replacing processed junk

We want to bring our expertise, our passion and our deep understanding of nutrient-rich superfoods and continue to help people steer clear of harmful, processed food and pharmaceutical drugs.


An investment in BōkU is an investment in the health and wellness of everyone and our planet. When you have nature on your side, it’s hard to go wrong.


So please, join us, and help BōkU spread the healing power of superfoods throughout the world.

The BōKU Superfood Process - The Future of Food Is Here!

22 days ago

Dear Investors and Followers, 

As we’ve been echoing for the last several weeks, in order to stay positive and maintain joy, it’s crucial to find silver linings and - dare we say, exploit them!   Not only have we survived the economic downturn during this crisis, BōKU is thriving.  And we’re confident that we’re going to be a major disruptor in the food industry because of our process and with your support. 

Supermarket Produce = Inflated Pricing & Suboptimal Nutrition

The carbon footprint of fresh produce is absurdly high.  This is based upon the water, human and other resources required to grow and distribute the food to stores, markets, restaurants and ultimately consumer’s plates. To say nothing of the fuel and pollution from refrigerated ships, trains, planes, trucks and tractors.  The paradigm of getting supermarket produce on the shelves equates to a grossly inefficient race against time, that ends up costing consumers and our environment in the end. 

You see, the minute produce is harvested (by hand or machine), nutrient density starts to decline as the food quickly begins to spoil. Even despite being raced around the globe in refrigerated containers, the shelf life of most supermarket produce is only a few days.  Adding to the waste, any fruit or veggie with even the slightest blemish, is often thrown away. Supermarket chains need to offset these losses by jacking up prices, leaving consumers to pay artificially high costs. Let’s also not forget that most of the soil from which supermarket produce is derived, is either polluted and/or largely devoid of health-sustaining minerals and nutrients. 

So, what’s the answer to the perishability problem of the U.S. food supply chain? How can the environmental impact of transporting food be substantially mitigated?

BōKU Organic Superfoods Process: The Future of Food

We believe that in light of the pandemic and related disruption in the food supply chain, there is an amazing opportunity to reinvent the way in which food is processed, distributed and consumed. One day in the near future, consumers can, should and will have access to healthier and more affordable food. And the food won’t have a shelf life of mere days - but rather years! The future of food is already here and BōKU is at the forefront of this new paradigm.  

Here’s how we do it! 

We harvest superfood ingredients (high-nutrient dense, organic fruits, vegetables, mushrooms, grasses, sprouts, sea vegetables, etc.) only when they are at their ripened peak. Then, the ingredients are gently dried at low temperature and powdered. These powders are then blended according to recipes created by our food scientists and natural formulators.  Maximal whole food nutrition with a shelf life that goes from days to years, with very little to no decline in nutritional value. The consumer need only add the water back that we remove in the drying process, shake it and take it!  That’s it. Sounds simple and it is!

Invest in A Game Changer That Will Bring Health to Millions

Imagine the millions of metric tons of produce that goes wasted (especially now because of restaurants closing). All that’s needed is drying and powdering superfood ingredients at their peak harvest and some slight tweaks in consumer behavior. Very little food or water would go to waste. This is what maximizing efficiency with optimal nourishment to feed the world looks like.

We see the future of food making both people and our planet healthier and happier. Do people really need to eat three large meals a day? We don’t think so and our growing list of customers worldwide, I’m sure would agree. Optimal health can be obtained through less calories and more nutrients, in organic, powdered form. We call it, “Shake & Take” nutrition. By simply replacing one or two ordinary meals daily, with extraordinary superfoods like BōKU, think of the positive impact for both you and the environment. Not to mention the ability to consciously deliver these foods to people in need, all across the globe.  

We can nourish people all over the world with low-perishability superfoods and heal the planet - but we can’t do it alone.  With your help, we will grow into a force to be reckoned with, a small-family business that makes an enormous positive difference.  Perhaps eventually, multinational corporations will adopt and help popularize our process to help make the world a better place.  

Please share our message with your network of friends, family and followers.

 

Yours in Super Health,

Team Boku

Notice of Material Change in Offering

about 1 month ago

[The following is an automated notice from the StartEngine team].

Hello! Recently, a change was made to the Boku International offering. Here's an excerpt describing the specifics of the change:


Boku provided updated financials, extended their campaign, and updated their page.


When live offerings undergo changes like these on StartEngine, the SEC requires that certain investments be reconfirmed. If your investment requires reconfirmation, you will be contacted by StartEngine via email with further instructions.

May this put your mind a bit at ease….

2 months ago


Dear Bōku Investors and Followers,

We wanted to send a message to you, that we’re sharing with our entire Boku family of customers. 

Yes, we’re feeling the same emotions you are. We’re concerned and a bit anxious. (Especially because our daughter Ryann and our 2-year old granddaughter are 3,000 miles away from us.) But we’re all going to get through this. Yes, it’s frustrating not knowing when life will return back to normal... However, it’s worth repeating, we will get through this and emerge on the other side of this unprecedented event, happier and in deeper gratitude for the things that should matter most. 

At BōKU Superfoods, it’s our hope that our products will help put your mind at ease, knowing that you’re feeding your body the most nutrient-dense, health forming foods on Earth—and priming your immune system.

While sales have spiked sharply, we are fully stocked at the moment and will be working as hard as possible to leverage our long-standing relationships with suppliers and maintain inventory levels over the coming weeks. However, supply issues are affecting our industry, so it may be prudent for you to stock up if you’re running low on any powders and other immune-supporting products, while you can. 

That said, please be respectful of the BōKU community and only order what you need so that there’s enough for everyone to go around.

In the meantime, a gentle reminder to stay calm, be mindful of others, set intentions, recite health mantras (“My immune system is strong”) and if you’re feeling anxious, take a few minutes a couple of times a day to take slow, deep breaths - and smile.

THESE CHALLENGES COME TO PASS, NOT TO STAY.

In gratitude & health, 

Reno & Lynn Rollé

Superfood to Help Support Immunity

3 months ago

Dear Investors and Followers,

We were invited recently to join a fund drive on KPFK in Los Angeles and decided to offer our Bōku Superfood Immunity Pack in exchange for pledges to support the public radio station.   We have been doing these fund drives for many years, but I don’t ever recall seeing such overwhelming response.   It’s clear that as nasty Flu bugs are making their seasonal rounds and the Corona virus continues to spread, this is an important topic that is front of mind for many people.  

It’s also a very clear reminder that from Bōku’s perspective, a strong immune system is our body’s best possible defense to protect against these invasive organisms. We know these bad guys prey on the weak, elderly and those with compromised immune function, which is often the result of poor diet and prescription medications.  As this sensibility is echoed by health experts all over the world, Bōku is preparing to initiate marketing efforts to help spread something far more positive – word about our Superfood Immunity Pack.  

The Immunity Pack contains original Bōku Superfood with 55 health forming, immune boosting, certified organic ingredients along with our very popular Bōku Immune Tonic and other Bōku products, to help fortify your body’s defenses.  

Please visit our website at www.bokusuperfood.com for more information on our Immunity Pack and consider an investment in Bōku today to help support this important work.  Please also remember to share this with friends and loved ones.

 

Thanks in good health,

Team Boku

Let go - and Hold on Tight!

5 months ago

Dear beloved Bōku Investors and Followers,

As we round the bend to a new decade, all of us at Bōku wanted to express our immense gratitude for the incredible blessings we received in 2019 and the overwhelming excitement we feel for 2020 and beyond!  

In the past year we have gained nearly 500 new investors through StartEngine.  We also attracted an NBA Super-Star and forged strategic alliances with some of the world's most respected brands.  

As some of you may know, the primary reason we joined StartEngine was to help us recover from a partnership gone wrong with a very large, publicly traded company.  We elected to walk away from a huge deal, in order to remain true to the values and principles we hold so dear. We could have taken the easy road, which might have lined our pockets handsomely, but at the cost of the quality we have worked so hard to establish and maintain. Looking back, I realize that this took enormous courage. While I knew it would be difficult, I never realized it would be as hard as it was, or that it would take so long to recover.  I'm enormously proud of my family and our entire Bõku team who stepped up and stood strong.  Especially my wife Lynn, who has endured so much and proven once again that her integrity, leadership, strength and love for our customers is absolutely unrivaled.  

When we started our company nearly 14 years ago, we made a commitment to providing the world's finest superfood products and customer experiences.  We knew first hand that these super foods had enormous potential to make a positive difference in people's health and well-being. We took the responsibility to share these natural gifts very seriously and vowed to never compromise our quality standards.  It hasn't always been easy, but we believed then - and now more than ever, that these guiding principles would one day position Boku as the world's #1 super food brand. 

We understand that the hardest work is still ahead of us as very exciting opportunity appears to be unfolding for Bōku.  Now, thanks to you and our growing family of loyal Boku customers, we are arguably better equipped than ever, for what lies ahead.

Dear Boku Followers,

I had the pleasure of attending the StartEngine Founders Summit recently and met some of the folks behind this amazing company, including Co-Founder & CEO Howard Marks.   Howard shared some great advice to help ensure we get our campaign successfully over the finish line and reminded us once again to never underestimate the power of a quality team.

 

We are building an incredible team here at Bōku that includes not only dedicated staff members, but you, our beloved investors!  We have such ambitious and exciting plans for Bōku and we realize we simply cannot do it alone.  Every single one of you and every penny of your hard-earned money, means the world to us.  It’s  with immense gratitude, passion and focus that we will continue on our journey to make the world a better place - one scoop at a time!

 

We have raised nearly $400K and are getting very close to the $500k benchmark which could be a vital tipping point!  As you consider joining our team and/or increasing your stake in Boku, please take a look at this video for some important thoughts from another fellow shareholder. Meanwhile, thanks again for your support and congratulations on your prudent decision to join our extended family!

Boku investor shares an update!

9 months ago


Dear Bōku Investors and Followers,

We had a surprise visit this week from one of our early StartEngine Investors, Mr. Antii Pohjonen and wanted to share the attached video.  

Antti has been a Boku customer for years and was one of the first to jump onboard with a very substantial stock purchase.  To say we enjoyed our time with him would be an understatement.  Antii is truly one of the most amazing people we have ever met. 

We spent two days here in Ojai, CA touring the Bōku facility, hiking in the surrounding mountains and sharing our future growth plans.  Perhaps the most important take-away is that we are 100% certain we’re on the right track with StartEngine.  Different from dealing with conventional investors and institutions, StartEngine has allowed us to build our team of investors with people like Antti, who truly love Bōku and directly align with our mission.  With this kind of team, we will be free to continue our exciting growth, without compromising the things that matter most to us - quality, authenticity and consciousness. 

Please enjoy this quick video from high up in the mountains above Ojai and stay tuned for more updates coming soon!

Thanks and best!

Boku Breakthroughs!

11 months ago

Dear Boku Investors and Followers,

Summer is well underway and so are we at Boku, with some very exciting business development updates to share!

Our mission to leverage hemp as the “Original Superfood” has not only positioned us firmly as an industry leader, we also stumbled on an amazing discovery that has led to the filing of a U.S. Patent application.

Hemp, as you may know, is the non-psychoactive variety of cannabis.  It does not get you ‘high’ like marijuana but offers incredible benefits as a food and medicine.  At Boku, we like to say that food is medicine and hemp is BOTH!

While experimenting with adding full-spectrum hemp powder to our superfood formulas, we discovered that we were somehow able to activate the cannabinoids in hemp (CBD and others), without heat.  This is incredibly important and exciting.  Until now, it has been widely believed that in order for humans and pets to benefit from the cannabinoids in hemp, the hemp needed to be heated – either cooked, smoked or vaped.  Well not anymore!  We have proven that we can unlock the amazing benefits in hemp by simply combining it with specific superfood ingredients.  Very much like the way lemon juice can “cook” fish in the popular south American dish ceviche, there are natural Phyto-chemicals in our superfood ingredients that cause a similar reaction when combined with hemp to unlock the medicinal, health forming nutrients.  


In addition to this breakthrough, we are also developing our Shake & Take Boku packaging, made from 100% compostable hemp biofilm.

Imagine single serve Boku Superfood meals in a convenient travel pouch that you can simply fill with water, shake, take and toss!  With no negative impact on the environment!

Thanks to you, we stand to make an enormous positive difference for not only our customers and shareholders, but also for the beautiful planet we all call home.  If you’ve already invested in Boku, THANK YOU and please consider increasing your stake today. If you’re one of the 424 people who have been following our campaign but have not yet gotten onboard, please click that “Invest” button now and buckle up for what promises to be a fun and meaningful ride!  

Love and best,

Team Boku

Boku at Google!

about 1 year ago


Dear Investors and Friends of Boku!

Reno Jr. and I spent the day recently at the amazing Google facility in Kirkland Washington, working on an exciting new program to integrate Boku Superfood into the Google ecosystem!

Their facility located just outside of Seattle is massive, with 3 huge modern buildings constructed around a beautiful community park. The park features soccer, baseball, basketball, and volleyball courts with beautifully landscaped walking paths. Believe it or not, Google prepares 100,000 meals per day in these campuses worldwide, for employees and guests.

To accomplish this, they have beautiful restaurants, “micro-kitchens” and multiple cafes onsite at these state-of- the- art facilities.  Here’s the amazing part: Everything including haircuts, massages, meals, drinks & snacks is available to employees and guests every day, at no charge!

Google truly prioritizes the health and wellness of their employees, and that’s where Boku comes in! We have not entered into a definitive deal yet and still have a lot of work to do. That said, we have been working on a comprehensive corporate wellness program with Google for months and we are making great progress.

The goal is to start with Boku’s high octane “Super Meal” powder in single use packaging to provide a nutrient dense superfood meal replacement option for Google employees. Super Meal is a new Boku formula that essentially combines the very best of Boku in one 55 gram serving. We will be offering the Super meal in the new “Shake- Take and Toss” fully recyclable single-serve packaging we have been developing with your help.

We are also hoping to integrate our award-winning Super Food, Super Protein, and Super Fuel powders to be included in the numerous smoothies served at Google facilities worldwide, every day.

Our mission at Boku is to share mother nature’s most potent superfood gifts and positively impact people. While there are many details yet to be ironed out, we are deeply honored to be aligned with an esteemed and powerful organization the likes of Google.  They understand the incredible difference Boku can make - not only in the health and wellness of their employees but also in moral, workplace productivity and the financial bottom-line for companies, large and small. 

Please stay tuned for more exciting updates!

Love and best,

Team Boku

Boku Teams With Tesla!

about 1 year ago

Dear Current Investors and Followers,

We are excited to announce that foot traffic to Boku HQ and our retail store should soon see a major boost, as we have just entered into a formal agreement with Tesla, who will be installing one of the area's largest banks of Tesla Super-Chargers, right here in our parking lot!

Boku will be a featured destination on the menu screen of all Tesla vehicles, guiding these drivers to our location for charging access along with unique super food tasting and shopping experiences.  With this steady flow of Tesla traffic coming through, we're obviously very excited about the potential to earn new Boku Super food customers.  Complimenting the fun and educational shopping experience in our amazing factory outlet store, Tesla drivers will get discounted e-bike rentals in exchange for Boku super food purchases, so they can explore picturesque Ojai while their cars are charging.

We also have plans to sell ready-to-consume products through our takeout window directly adjacent to the famous Ojai bike trail and renowned Ojai Valley inn and Spa.  These products will include our newly-formulated fresh-pressed hemp juice elixirs, super food smoothies, frozen treats, snacks and more! 

Tesla is all about clean fuel for transport and Boku is all about clean fuel for humans.  We see a perfect fit here and are very excited to have formalized this powerful brand partnership. 

We'll have much more to share in the coming weeks about how Boku HQ will continue evolving into a must-visit destination for Ojai tourists and hot recruiting tool for new customers.  Meanwhile, please visit our startEngine page and invest now!  We appreciate having you onboard for this exciting adventure more than words can express! 

Love and best,

Team Boku

Take a peek at our new boku HQ!

about 1 year ago

Dear Treasured Investors and Followers,

Many of you know that Boku has recently moved into new headquarters in our hometown of Ojai, California. We’re still developing certain areas of this fabulous property, but as we shared late last year, our onsite production facilities and beautiful retail store are now fully operational!  Click the link below for a sneak-peek at our new HQ, which happens to be located directly in front of the world-renowned Ojai Valley Inn and Spa, less than a mile from downtown.  

Ojai is a premier Southern California luxury travel destination, where tourists enjoy boutique hotels, art galleries, wineries, spiritual retreats, restaurants, live music, theater and an abundance of outdoor activities.  Just 15 miles from the ocean, Ojai is a mecca for organic wellness and one of the most charming communities you will ever encounter.

As the spring and summer travel season approaches, we're expecting a lot of tourist traffic at Boku. Our goal is to maximize the revenue potential of this traffic while sharing tours, talks and events leading to super food experiences and ultimately, purchases onsite. 

Exciting brand partnerships will be announced in the coming weeks.  These massive brands acknowledge the strategic value of our location and will be activating on property, in partnership with Boku. 

If you happen to be in the area - stop by for a tour and to say hello!  Meanwhile, thanks for your support and for joining us on this amazing journey!

Boku is breaking into the Cannabis/Hemp Space!

over 1 year ago

Dear Investors and Followers,

With Valentine's Day upon us, we first want to express our love and gratitude to all of you, especially those that have invested in our StartEngine Equity Crowdfunding campaign, which just hit 200 investors! 

With that said, we have some very exciting news on the product front. Boku is entering the hemp space and will soon be rolling out non-psychoactive cannabis based superfood items, that promise to disrupt and revolutionize this fast growing vertical. With all the recent hype surrounding CBD and other functional cannabinoids, Boku is planning to take this category to another level by spearheading the fact that hemp is one of earth's greatest gifts, and as we see it, The Original Superfood.

With the recent passing of the U.S. Farm Bill legalizing hemp, our focus is of course, on functional cannabinoids like CBD, CBN, CBG and others - but unlike most in the industry, we won't just be extracting these cannabinoids. In keeping with our "whole food" mantra, Boku will be utilizing the "whole plant" to exploit all of its healing properties, just the way nature intended.

With your help, we will soon be introducing a wide variety of products to the mass market, including fresh-pressed hemp juice elixirs, full spectrum hemp fortified superfood powders and more!  Now that federal regulations have loosened, we're so excited to leverage our years of research and proven expertise to exploit the convergence of two historical trends: 1. Organic superfoods and 2. Cannabis.  If you're as excited as we are, please join us an investor, or re-up your current investment. Be sure to check out our StartEngine page to learn more.

Thanks and best always,

Team Boku

Mariel Hemingway Now Officially a Boku Adviser!

over 1 year ago

Dear Investors and Followers,

Coming off the announcement of our endorsement deal with Kyle Kuzma, we have another exciting update about an incredible addition to the Boku team.

Many of you are already aware of our involvement with Mariel Hemingway, Oscar-nominated actress and prominent health and wellness advocate. We are so very fortunate to have her officially on board, as her work in the field of treating depression is inextricably linked to our cause.

You see, our superfoods contain extraordinarily high amounts of PREbiotics from fruit and vegetable fiber. PREbiotics are the amazing ingredients that feed the billions of naturally occurring PRObiotics already in our gut. It’s the only thing that PRObiotics consume for fuel to multiply. By feeding the PRObiotics in our gut, we can help restore healthy gut balance and digestion.

But here’s the amazing part - Experts believe that a balanced, healthy gut can actually produce more SEROTONIN, the feel good chemical of happiness than the BRAIN!

Mariel knows all too well that there are an estimated 50+ million U.S. adults currently taking prescription antidepressant drugs. The sole benefit of these potentially dangerous drugs, is that they help stimulate the production of serotonin in the brain. Ms. Hemingway and her tireless work will help us raise awareness of the role that superfoods can play in benefitting both physical and mental health. In fact, it is our strong belief that superfoods could present a safe and natural, alternative path to the happiness we all seek and deserve.  Our hope is that together we can help alleviate the effects of depression on our society while advocating superfoods and healthy living.

The news just keeps on getting better, as we continue unwrapping the powerful secrets of Mother Nature! Thanks so much for being a part of this amazing journey!  If you haven’t already, please join Mariel and the Boku family as an investor. 

Thanks and love,

Boku Signs Endorsement Deal With NBA Star Kyle Kuzma!

over 1 year ago

Dear Investors and Followers,

Some absolutely huge news - we have officially signed an endorsement contract with L.A. Laker super star Kyle Kuzma! Fans best know him as ‘Kuz’ and we’re so very proud to now call him part of the Boku family.

Kyle has been a longtime fan of our products and has experienced dramatic improvement in his on and off-the-court performance. Perhaps it’s no coincidence that Kyle scored a career high 41 points last night against the Detroit Pistons and has personally credited Boku Superfood for this Super Human performance!

As part of our agreement, he will be promoting our line of products across his 2.5M Instagram followers (and 500K+ on Twitter). He has incredible influence as a rising young NBA Super Star and we couldn’t think of a better individual to partner with. We're confident that Kyle will play a key role in elevating the Boku brand and helping us grow exponentially.

Kyle knows very clearly, the difference that Boku Superfoods have made for him and clearly sees the exciting future ahead for all of us. We would love for you to follow his lead and become an investor in our StartEngine crowd equity campaign. Together, we have the opportunity to grow and advance Boku’s mission of helping people live healthier, more fulfilling lives.

We'll have a lot more to share on our partnership with Kyle in the coming weeks. In the meantime, if you haven't already, get on board with Boku and become an investor. You won't want to miss out on the much greater things we're poised for.

Thanks and best,

95% with 84 Investors and climbing fast!!

over 1 year ago

Dear Investors and Followers,

We are really on a roll! 

Reno Jr. and I just returned from Indianapolis where we met with Davon Reed of the NBA Indiana Pacers and his management team. What an amazing guy and perfect spokesperson for Boku! Equally amazing is his management team that represents some of the biggest names in professional sports. It so humbling and almost overwhelming when we consider what is happening right now for Boku.

It has been our dream for years to be a leader in superfood sports nutrition. We have personally witnessed the positive results many professional athletes have had with our superfoods but until recently, we lacked the resources to go after major endorsement deals. I have watched big nutrition brands team up with influential athletes to promote their products through expensive TV ads, product placement deals and other promotions that we could simply never afford. All the while knowing that their products could never even hold a candle to Boku Superfood. We have patiently maintained focus on our mission and let our superfoods do all the talking. We knew that it would only be a matter of time before word spread about our amazing products. Now we are on the verge of announcing some more incredible partnerships in the pro sports world. 

We have seen remarkable transformation in people from all walks of life with our superfoods. As long as there are people who have not heard of Boku Superfood and experienced this positive transformation and health forming power, we will not stop! Thanks to many of you, we are now at 95% of our first tier funding goal with our 84 investors in our campaign to-date! THANK YOU!!! And please stay tuned for more exciting announcements coming VERY SOON!

Love and best,

Team Boku

Our New Factory Is Now In Full Production!

over 1 year ago

Dear Investors and Followers,

Words cannot express our excitement and gratitude! Thanks to you, phase 1 of our Superfood factory in Ojai, CA is now fully operational with FDA approval and USDA organic and Kosher certification!  This marks such an incredible achievement for us.  For more than a year, we have been working diligently to get our new, state of the art facility up and running.  We were previously located 15 miles away in Ventura, California.  While this location certainly served us well over the years, it doesn't even compare to our beautiful new property in Ojai, where it all started for Boku more than 12 years ago!

Our mission is to share nature's most potent and healing superfood secrets with as many people as possible. With your help, we are now micro-batching our delicious, health-forming superfood blends under one amazing roof and are positioned to scale with remarkable efficiency!

Stay tuned for photos, videos and more announcements coming soon!  

Thanks and love,

Team Boku!
