Believe it or not, our brains are composed of 60% fat. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that our brains need fat to work correctly. And though the brain accounts for a small portion of our bodyweight, it consumes 20% of our metabolic energy.

Studies show that nutrition affects brain development and function throughout our lives. Fueling your brain with fat, especially by way of ketosis, provides energy to the brain, helps protect against illness, and lends itself to better memory.

We believe that it is imperative to consume the right amount of high quality fats on a daily basis to operate at our full potential. Therefore, we use only the best organic coconut MCTs to power our most important organ every morning.


Protein is most well known for repairing and building muscles after a strenuous work out. However, protein is much more than big biceps. Our bodies are 16% protein, and in addition to playing an integral role to your muscles, protein is also an important building block for your bones, cartilage, skin, blood, and even hair.

Eating an adequate amount of protein is essential to overall well being, and especially performance. However, some of American’s most common sources of protein, especially when eating low carb, are derived from dairy products, meat, and eggs.

A huge part of our mission at Helio is to provide plant nutrients, and we didn’t skimp on protein. In every scoop Dawn delivers 15g of high quality pea and hemp protein isolate.


The fourth and most unheralded macronutrient is fiber. While it is vital to eat the correct amount of food to build our bodies, we also must cleanse them. Fiber aids in digestion, keeps our blood sugar in check, and suppresses our appetites.

We went about fiber delivery by way of the ancient Mayan superfood, chia seeds. Chia is not only the best form of fiber nature gives us, but chia is rich in antioxidants. Chia is also an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, iron, and calcium.

Chia both cleanses our body by containing high amounts of both soluble and insoluble fiber, as well as drawing water and toxins found in your digestive track out.

The Only Vegan & Keto Protein


I ate eggs and oats in the morning for years. Relatively healthy for the duration too. A couple of years ago I started experimenting with high fat diets, and loved how I felt and looked. However, I quickly grew tired of eating sardines and nuts for breakfast. Finding Helio’s all plant high fat shake was a huge blessing. I now make a shake every morning full of nutrient rich plants and superfoods, of course with Dawn. Thank you Helio for being ahead of the curve and offering this product.


I have not always been healthy, and last year made some big changes to my lifestyle. I think one thing that helped as much as anything was getting away from high sugar breakfasts. Along the way a friend told me about Helio’s shakes and I quickly fell in love with them. As I continue to lose weight, Helio’s shakes are at the core of my diet. On top of being healthy, they taste great, and I look forward to having my shake every day!


An excellent product and great choice when wanting a quick and healthy meal on the go. When I was on my keto regimen it was a great addition to my diet when I was limiting my carb intake. Even by itself it is a great product to have because It taste great! All it takes for me is an avocado and almond milk to make this beast and off I go conquering the day.


This is a GODSEND for travel. It's almost impossible to find quality food on the road. When everything in restaurants is soaked in vegetable oils and other inflammatory triggers, I know I can rely on Helio's Dawn to give me the second-wind I desperately need during lunch hours.


As a competitive athlete, what I consistently fuel my body with is extremely important. I’ve now been using Helio for two months and love the clean, stable energy I get from eating a calorie rich plant shake in the morning. On days when I don’t have it I really notice a difference. Looking forward to buying in bulk!


Being a mom of three makes mornings hectic, but being busy is no excuse to not set my kids up for success as much as possible. Feeding my kids something that will help them stay full and be able to focus in school is one of the most important things I can do every morning. That’s why our family has decided to feed them a high fat plant based diet for optimal brain development. Helio’s Dawn shake makes my morning less stressful, gives me peace of mind, and my kids love it!

I've worked for two years developing Helio products and the culmination of all my work is our new açaí bowl. This is the world's only keto friendly açaí bowl. That means we've limited the sugar, and overcompensated the healthy fats, upped the vegan protein, and deliberately included insoluble gut cleansing fiber.
