Greens and Whole Food Powder Review – Updated
My fridge is NOT always full of leafy greens, fruits and veggies and my juicer and blender are NOT prominently displayed on the counter. If you are like me, I want to make life easy but still keep up with health habits. That’s why drinking green and whole food powder is a tool to help you stay successful in the long run!
Green and whole food powders are one of the easiest ways to add nutrient-dense foods to your daily life and establish a solid foundation for well-being. They contain a variety of nutrients such as carotenoids, anti-oxidants, amino acids, enzymes, fiber, vitamin and minerals from plans – all which may have some healthful benefits. Chlorella, another ingredient found in green powders may help lower your cholesterol. Other ingredients found in green powders are leafy greens, grasses, herbs, mushrooms, extra fiber and nutritional extracts like green tea. Additionally, probiotics added to greens powders may support immune function and digestive health.
While not meant to be a substitute for whole vegetables, these powders may help increase energy levels, detoxify the body, improve digestion, alkalinize the body and provide antioxidants to improve overall health and well-being.
It’s a perfect way to kick your health into gear this spring.
