For some time now, you may have heard of certain products being referred to as super greens. But what are super greens? Let's have a look!
Many foods will provide a complex range of nutrients, however super greens are one of the most dense sources of nutrients available. They're not your typical green products from the supermarket (beans, kale etc), in fact they refer to some of the mort ancient varieties of plants - namely algae and members of cereal grass families (young grains). The common ingredient, which also lends the green colour, is chlorophyll.
Super greens are packed with a wide array of vitamins, minerals, proteins, and enzymes that are easily absorbed by the body. They contain high levels of chlorophyll and antioxidants. Because of their highly concentrated nutrient profile, super greens help boost the immune system, reduce inflammation, detoxify the body, and promote healthy digestion.
Some studies have indicated that super greens may help regulate cholesterol as well as reduce the symptoms of arthritis. The key ingredient of these health benefits appears to be the chlorophyll, which helps lower the pH balance of the body, thereby making the body more alkaline and reducing the acidity that is associated with health problems such as arthritis.
The antioxidants in super greens are a line of defense against free radicals, which contribute to disease and aging. The enzymes offered by the super greens appear to aid digestion.
So how can you include super greens in your diet? One of the easiest ways to do this is to take a super greans supplement. You can buy super green supplements in a powder form, which you can add to other foods or include in a smoothie.
