Why Take Greens? What are the benefits?

Greens powders do not entirely replace the nutrition of fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet. Aside from their exquisite appearance, there are too many benefits of enjoying whole foods: the colours, patterns, shapes, fragrances, tastes and textures.

However it can be  challenging to get the daily required amount of greens, fibre, fruits, and veggies recommended, which is why people will choose to take a multivitamin or other supplement such as green food supplements to augment their diet.  

Green foods supplements that contain organically harvested ingredients can step in where your diet is lacking and where organic food options are out of reach. Green food supplements can also provide a balance of phytonutrients, antioxidants, omegas, amino acids and fibres for picky eaters. 

Green food supplements can also be alkaline-forming, helping neutralize and flush out harmful acid from the body, providing a more well-balanced system. Some green supplements help support the body's natural detoxifying systems.

Minerals found in green food supplements like calcium, potassium and magnesium are associated with good blood pressure management. Greens also contain Vitamin A, Vitamin C and Selenium, related to maintaining a healthy immune system. An antioxidant-rich green supplement can help support healthy cell growth and prevent cell-damaging free radicals. Vitamin K, found in leafy greens, helps maintain healthy blood vessels and prevents bone loss. The high density of nutrients found in the right green food supplement can boost energy and reduce daytime mental fatigue.


Green Food Supplements- The Best Start to Your Day 

So, what's the point of greens powders? To supplement, enhance, and complete a holistic diet. The benefits of green powders (specifically VegeGreens, because they are not all created equally) are endless, but here are two top attributes: quick and easy and multiple optimal nutrients.

VegeGreens provides more vegetables than you could eat in a day, including trace ingredients you won't find in a garden patch, like aquatic greens, chlorella, and dulse. Land veggies include beetroot, carrots, and a variety of cruciferous vegetables (think broccoli, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts), providing you with the benefit of these vegetables without having to "eat" the ones you don't like. You can drink the rainbow of superfood benefits with over 60 ingredients and 8 blends of green foods and plant extracts.

What Nutrients are in VegeGreens?

Thanks to all those green foods, you'll get important nutrients like vitamins A, C, K, and E, as well as folate, iron, and zinc. They're also an incredible source of chlorophyll, which is what puts the ''green' in VegeGreens. Chlorophyll binds to carcinogens and other toxic matter in the body, helping the liver and kidneys eliminate these toxins from the body. It can also help support the immune system, improve cholesterol and blood pressure

VegeGreens are also chock-full of phytonutrients, the natural chemicals found in plant-based foods which help boost health.  Some of the phytonutrients found in VegeGreens include:

  • Carotenoids -Like Alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, lycopene, and lutein all essential for eye health.
  • Flavonoids -These phytonutrients reduce inflammation and can help prevent chronic diseases like asthma and heart disease.
  • Glucosinolates- Found in many green vegetables, these chemicals can help prevent cancer.
  • Ellagic acid- Found in berries and other foods, these phenols protect the body's cells from oxidative stress.
  • Resveratrol-Also found in grapes and wine (woo!), resveratrol has been shown to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects and can help prevent heart disease and certain cancers.
