The Ultimate Meal is the finest, most potent and complete source of nourishment available anywhere at any price. The Ultimate Life believes that the optimum source of nourishment for the human body does not come in the form of synthetic vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants, tablets, powders, pills, or for that matter, cooked or processed foods or any animal products. It does, however, come in the form of raw, properly sprouted, freeze-dried, cold-milled and preferably organic plant foods that have their enzymes and nutrients intact as nature intended, as well as natural, potent anti-oxidants in optimum, not trace amounts.
The Ultimate Meal is the only product to fill this need. No gimmicks, just the ingredients which are the ultimate food sources of each and every nutrient essential for optimum health, vitality and energy.

What is The Ultimate Meal?
Is it a supplement?
No; it is a whole, complete meal which needs no supplementation.
Is it a meal replacement?
It is beyond a mere replacement, hence an entirely new standard for a meal (a lightbulb is far more than a mere replacement for a candle).
Is it a protein shake?
No; it is far more than a protein shake; it is a whole meal which contains the most assimilable protein in ideal, not excessive amounts; thus it does not deplete the body of calcium like protein shakes do.
A liquid meal?
No; it is a solid meal that is pulverized to ease digestion and assimilation.
Is it for weight-loss?
A more precise description would be: It will help you lose excess fat tissue if you have it while retaining and building muscle tissue if you exercise.
Should I have it with other foods?
No; it is a whole, complete meal which you should have by itself. You will find it will satisfy your hunger longer than anything else you can have.
How does it taste?
Delicious... providing the directions are followed and it is prepared properly. Just as flour itself does not determine the taste of a cookie, The Ultimate Meal tastes as great as the smoothie to which it is added. If you like the fruit smoothie by itself, you'll like it with The Ultimate Meal.
Do you need a blender?
The Ultimate Life highly suggests using it for better consistency and flavor, as well as the major advantage of being able to use whole fruits.
Have it immediately (not quickly):
To prevent the ingredients in The Ultimate Meal from oxidizing and the fiber from absorbing the liquid smoothie, it is important to have it within 5 to 15 minutes of preparation... but don't rush it.
"Chew" each mouthful:
Very few people realize the fact that digestion begins in the mouth, not in the stomach. The act of chewing or mastication releases the digestive enzymes in the saliva which help with better digestion and assimilation of nutrients from our food. This is why, in spite of the fact that it is already pulverized, it is very important to "chew" each mouthful of The Ultimate Meal a few times before swallowing.
Why no vegetable juices:
The Ultimate Meal is nutritionally far more potent than most vegetables and/or their juices, e.g. Spirulina is richer than carrot juice in beta carotene and richer than spinach in chlorophyll! This is why in most cases, using vegetable juices would be redundant.
Color, taste and texture variances:
Since The Ultimate Meal is not an over-processed "liquid meal", the color, taste and texture may vary. Also, The Ultimate Life recommends you check the evolution and list of ingredients periodically because they may have added or subtracted any of them in order to maintain the status of The Ultimate Meal as the best it can possibly be at any given time. Period.
Why is it green?
It certainly was not in vogue when The Ultimate Life started this concept over 15 years ago, but in case you have not noticed yet, green is in! The problem is, a small amount of any sub-standard algae will turn anything green.
The primary source of greenness in The Ultimate Meal is a therapeutic dose (by far the highest in the industry) of the ultimate quality spirulina on Earth from Hawaii, which is one of their most expensive ingredients. It also happens to be the richest source of beta carotene and chlorophyll (the primary detoxifying agent in dark green vegetables, which comes only in green). Without chlorophyll, it would be The Almost Ulitmate Meal... They would rather inform and educate than lower their standards.
Freshness & Shelf-Life:
The Ultimate Life products are packaged using the following state-of-the-art methods for maintaining our extremely high standards for freshness:
- Nitrogen Purged: This displaces the oxygen in all of their containers, virtually eliminating oxidation
- Induction Sealed: Unlike cheap pressure-sensitive (PS) seals, theirs are completely and absolutely air tight
- Shelf-Life: Conservatively, about 3 years before breaking seal and 6 months after for all of The Ultimate Life products except for The Ultimate Meal (2 months after)
Important Facts You Ought to Know about The Ultimate Life:
- The Ultimate Life is not a public company & will never be one, because profit is not their primary motive (proven by their prices, which have increased only 20% in 3 decades). Their goal has always been to keep their products affordable enough for absolutely anyone in any economic category. None of their products should ever be a luxury or even unaffordable. This is also one of many reasons why The Ultimate Life is not a multi-level company & word-of-mouth is still their only source of advertising.
- Considering the astronomical cost of the ultimate ingredients, state-of-the-art packaging materials & procedures they use to preserve optimum freshness & potency, necessitating the smallest profit margin in the industry, everyone said it couldn't be done, but they are still here 3 decades+ later. That's because they don't use company reps, brokers, or distributors, & they do not advertise. After all, it's always you, the customer, who ends up paying for all that. Great word-of-mouth is free... but only if the products actually work, & they are truly a great value.
- They innovate... not imitate. The goal isn't for their products to simply be better than everything else on the market, it's for them to be the absolute best they can possibly be, at any given time. This is also why their research never stops & all their products are constantly evolving, even though the 1st evolution of every one of them would easily annihilate anything available today.
- They are dedicated to investing in the ultimate ingredients, & this extremely informative website which does not insult your intelligence by assuming you have a short attention span, & only interested in hype.
- They use only recyclable packaging, digital photography & digital printing with vegetable ink (chemical & animal-free), on 100% post-consumer recycled paper.
- Almost all products on the market are designed to be sold... they only happen to be used. The Ultimate Life products (from day one) were designed to be used... they only happen to be sold. This was never intended to be a business... it became one... which is why virtually everything about them is different from every company you have or will come across.
The Ultimate Life Credo
At The Ultimate Life, they do not manufacture nor do they suggest using most or all of their products to create more profit... far from it. They do it because they believe it is the only way to achieve the highest level of well-being. The key is the way their products work together synergistically. Also, they have found no one is willing to manufacture products with the unusually high standards they have created. Don't forget, everything they make is guaranteed and risk-free.
The Ultimate Life Story
In 1981, Sam Gerard moved to Santa Barbara, California, where he started & ran a business, totally unrelated to the health industry. This was when he had an epiphany: "My body is the only shell I'll occupy, so I will never take it for granted". So he decided to live up to his perfectionism, & became obsessed with eating perfectly. Utilizing the knowledge he'd acquired from pre-med courses, he immersed himself in researching & studying the nutritional & ecological aspects of the ideal human diet, based upon clinical human studies worldwide, as well as personal experience, made even more relevant due to his extremely sensitive skin & digestive system.
This led to the following discovery: The ultimate sources of nourishment for the human body do not come in the form of synthetic pills & powders, cooked or processed foods, or any animal product in any form. They come in the form of raw &/or properly sprouted, preferably freeze-dried & certified organic plant foods, which have their nutrients & enzymes intact, as they do in nature.
However, since most of us often live in an unnaturally stressful environment, & free radicals are the primary cause of aging & diseases, it's also important to supplement our diets with concentrated anti-oxidants derived from plants, in proper quantities. In most cases (healthy humans under 40), this would eliminate the need for supplementation virtually entirely.
By now Sam had become a nutritional consultant, while he spent 4 hours daily creating, preparing his intricate & ultra-healthy meals. However, in spite of his overall well-being reaching new peaks, being an efficiency fanatic, he started researching a more efficient way of nourishing himself, without compromising his standards.
He discovered many "superfoods" were the answer, some of which were the ultimate. But when he looked for a product that contained nothing but those ultimate ingredients, there was nothing... a fact that holds true to this day. Everything had their token 1 or 2 good, or maybe even great ingredients, with the rest being virtually worthless fillers.
This is when Sam decided to make his own concoction, with nothing but the ultimate. Period.
After numerous formulations, he found the ultimate, which surpassed every expectation. When those around him wanted it as well... then started telling everyone about 'The Ultimate Powder', he renamed it The Ultimate Meal, trademarked the name, had it packaged professionally, & started to make it available to the general public as well. It was 1982, & the response was unbelievable, followed by exponential growth.
As the years went by & new information & better ingredients became available, Sam continued improving The Ultimate Meal & called them Evolutions. Then, again due to their lack of existence, he created & formulated other products, all of which go through their own evolutions. This is why all their products are the ultimate they can possibly be at any given time.
THE ULTIMATE TEST: On November 28th, 1988, Sam had an opportunity to put his program to the ultimate test when he was struck, then run over by a truck, while crossing the street as a pedestrian. He suffered numerous injuries, the worst being his left femur, which was crushed into 3 pieces, one of which stuck out of his skin.
PROGNOSIS: Sam was told he would have a limp, shooting pains, & rheumatoid arthritis, plus need a cane, for the rest of his life. He was 30.
However, none of it came true. With the help of Tai-Chi & his ultimate vegan diet, which included The Ultimate Meal (their other products came later) with the Horsetail herb (which he'd just discovered in his quest to prove all the "experts" wrong), he exceeded every prognosis & expectation by healing almost completely, and at record speed. The results were so undeniable & spectacular, that the orthopedic surgeon started prescribing it to his patients.
By the early nineties, in order to meet the demand for The Ultimate Meal by health care practitioners & health food stores (who'd heard about it from their patrons), Sam stopped consulting and The Ultimate Life became the primary focus of his life.
