NOA & CO.
All Noa & Co products are sustainably sourced and of the highest quality so that you never have to settle for anything other than superior supplements made with love.
During her years spent living in Japan, their founder Megan was inspired by traditional health and wellness practices. This sparked an idea to create a natural supplements brand backed by an ethos of self-love and total body positivity. They’re aligned with Ikigai, the Japanese Ideology that’s all about finding joy in life through purpose.
Noa & Co. have distanced themselves from fuelling diet culture and focusing on aesthetics alone.
Instead, we prioritise health and wellness because when you focus on these things, you get to feel better about yourself AND enjoy aesthetic benefits as a by-product of using Noa & Co.
This shift in mindset is the greatest wealth of all and something the world certainly needs more of.
Carefully crafted with none of the nasties.
Every one of our products has been expertly created with the help of professionals to ensure plant-based, family-friendly products suitable for all walks of life. At Noa & Co there are professional athletes, pregnant moms, young adults, hard-working dads and even children with one thing in common: to be a better version of ourselves.
WHY WE LOVE THEM
A brand that builds their ethos on well being, health and joy already sparks my interest.
After tasting the Noa & Co. products, reading a little more about the ingredients, production and story behind this new local brand I had to have them on this directory so that I could share them with you.
I love that Megan prioritises wellbeing over aesthetics. From the first time we were in contact with each other I could tell that she truly believes in her product, backs it and knows what she is talking about from a nutritional point of view. The love that she has put into this brand has shone right through into every little detail you will find when you come into contact with something Noa & Co.
This is just the beginning for a small business that I believe will make a big impact on the Health Products available in South Africa.
I so look forward to you trying them!

VANILLA COLLAGEN CREAMER
Did you know that you can take Noa & Co collagen while pregnant and breastfeeding?
In fact, it is recommended. Here are a couple of reasons why:
~It supports skin elasticity.
Having healthy and hydrated skin during and after pregnancy is essential!
Women have reported having fewer stretch marks and minimal loose skin post-pregnancy as a result of consuming collagen. While all women are uniquely beautiful, there's no harm in boosting your natural collagen production to assist your delicate skin on this journey.
~It strengthens joints and ligaments to help your body carry the physical load.
Healthy joints are vital when constantly carrying around a little one. Caring for a baby is physical work. Plenty of mums have sore necks, backs, and arms- Noa & Co collagen helps with muscle pain and overall joint recovery.

VEGAN PROTEIN BROWNIE TRUFFLES
1 1/2 cups roasted peanuts
2 1/2 cups pitted medjool dates
1 cup high quality cocoa powder
2 scoops of Noa & Co chocolate replenishing protein powder
3 tablespoons maple syrup (or to taste)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1. In a food processor or high-powered blender, puree peanuts until the texture resembles wet sand. Add in dates and puree to a paste. The texture should be very smooth. You might have to stop the food processor, mix with a spatula, and process again in order to get every last nook and cranny.
2. Add in cocoa powder, protein powder, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and salt. Pulse until everything is well combined. The mixture will be thick.
3. Make a rounded teaspoon, rolling between your palms to get the truffles perfectly round. Leave plain or roll in cocoa powder to lightly coat if you want that distinct truffle look.
Refrigerate and enjoy for up to 3 weeks!
