It’s true that I’m a girl who loves a green smoothie to start my day. And how to improve upon the delicious, nutritious punch that these smoothies can offer is by adding a green powder to it.
Greens powders are simply put; vegetables, fruits, grasses and algaes in powdered form to make them more concentrated. The powders are packed full of vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients that help to increase energy, improve immune function, alkalize the body and provide antioxidative support.
Voila! Genuine Health’s newly revamped Greens+ O powder!
Prior to receiving this product, I had tried Greens+ a handful of times and can honestly say I loved it. After consuming I always felt more energized. What is fantastic about the new Greens+ O is that is is made from 75% organic ingredients, is vegan and common allergen free.
Some of the healthful ingredients include;
- Spirulina: Contains a number of co-enzymatic pigments each affiliated with enzymes, co-enzymes, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Is high in beta-carotene and gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), an essential fatty acid, sometimes called Vitamin F. Also contains essential fatty acids from the Omega-3 and Omega-6 groups.
- Broccoli and Broccoli Sprouts: Contains compounds which support all steps in body’s detox process, including activation, neutralization, and elimination of unwanted contaminants.
- Sunflower Lecithin: One serving of Greens+ O supplies 1,100mg of lecithin providing 550mg of phosphatidylcholine (PC) which is essential for nervous system function. Lecithin helps with absorption of vitamins A, D and other fat-soluble nutrients.
Greens+ O can be added to a smoothie or mixed with water or juice (try with coconut water, yum!) and knocked back for almost instant energy. Can be found at health food stores and online.
