There’s 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
- Spirulina Kale
- Chlorella Moringa
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
