Greens are a healthy, wholefood source of chlorophyll. Their bright green colour attests to the high concentration of this healthy pigment. Taking your chlorophyll in wholefood form means you get extra nutrients too, like B complex vitamins. You’ll also get extra fibre, which is key for bowel detoxification - it works to provide a natural intestinal sweep. All greens contain similar levels of chlorophyll and fibre, so you take your pick from Spirulina, Chlorella, Barley grass or Wheat grass.
Greens powders are easily added to smoothies or juice. Greens add an earthy flavour. Some come with tasty natural flavours which make them easy to consume with water on-the-go.
