What are the Benefits of Eating Your GREENS?
So What Are the Benefits of Going Green?
No, I’m not talking about recycling (which we should all do anyway). I’m talking about supplementing your nutrition program with raw greens, usually in powder form. Obviously if you’re following a healthy eating plan, you’re working on eliminating unhealthy foods and replacing them with healthy fruits, vegetables, complex carbohydrates and lean proteins.
You may feel like you’re getting all of the nutrition you need from the healthy foods in your diet… me too, right? But on a whim (and a tremendous sense of curiosity), I decided to add a green vegetable supplement to my routine. I wanted to see if they would REALLY make a difference. And now, after personally experiencing positive, noticeable results, I’m a daily greens user.
What are Raw Greens?
They usually consist of a combination of ingredients such as algae, broccoli, spinach, beet powder, wheat grass, oat grass, apply fiber, spirulina, tomato powder, probiotics, and many more. Greens are packed tons of vitamins, minerals, fiber, phytonutrients, carotenoids, and enzymes.
For example, greens provide you with tons of vitamin K, A, and C, providing antioxidant protection against free radical damage.
Greens are known to support immune system strength, aid in digestion and absorption, as well as cleanse and detoxify the body.
So What Did I Personally Experience to Get Me Using Greens on a Regular Basis?
Definitely clearer skin and a more regular digestive system. And frankly, as much as I work out and stress my body with travel (and the everyday trials and tribulations of being a working mom), I feel like my immune system has been strengthened, my hormones stay balanced, and my sugar cravings are nonexistent. When I skip my greens, I notice a real difference and because of this, I was convinced greens needed to be included in my 12 week super shred plan.
There are a Huge Number of Options When it Comes to Which Greens You Should Use.
I have tried several great ones. The current ones that I personally suggest include; Dales Raw Greens, Vita mineral Greens Isagenix Greens (not GF) and now one of my new favorites, pHresh Greens Superfood (Gluten Free). I like that all it takes is 1 tsp (of a VERY green powder!) to get a complete daily serving of greens.
