There is a very good reason our Mum's urged us to always eat our greens. Along with supplying our bodies with a multitude of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, enzymes and phytonutrients, nutrient-dense superfood greens are also alkalizing and full of fibre. Greens are food-based nutritional supplements, so the body easily recognises them as food, which supports optimal bioavailability and absorption.
Greens offer a quantity of concentrated nutrients, including B-vitamins, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Vitamin E, Magnesium, Calcium, Iron and Potassium. This is a great option for those who might not manage to consume their recommended daily intake of vegetables.
Green Supplements contain a variety of leafy greens, herbs, sprouts, micro algae and grasses to boost the amount of phyto-nutrients we consume including carotenoids, lutein, zeaxanthin and quercetin.
Some of the most popular greens are:
- Barley Grass
- Wheat Grass
Green powders also contain blends of specialty nutrients such as herbs, digestive enzymes, plant proteins, prebiotics and probiotics.
Chlorophyll is the green plant pigment in these superfoods, it absorbs light during photosynthesis; it produces energy for the plant.
Greens offer support for healthy:
- Energy levels
- Immune function
- General wellbeing
- Skin health
- Antioxidant protection from free radical damage
- Bowel elimination and regularity
A Greens Powder supplement can be an easy addition to your diet in smoothies, soups, stews and sprinkled over salads for a quick, easy nutrient hit.
