Would you say that you eat enough veggies in a day? What about fruit?
Right now, if you’re wondering “how much is enough?” then you’re not alone…
A recent study by the Center of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that 90 percent of Americans don’t consume enough fruits and vegetables each day. That’s shocking considering the recommended guideline is not set very high. Healthy daily consumption is considered 2-3 cups of vegetables and 1-2 cups of fruit. Those are pretty attainable numbers especially when spread out over the period of a day.
Even though we know fruits and vegetables are essential to maintain a healthy lifestyle – to help reduce risk of chronic disease, type 2 diabetes, cancer and obesity – we still don’t eat enough.
We know they’re healthy, we know we should eat more, but it’s hard…
Are Super Green Powders Healthy?
Super green powders are commonly advertised as a solution to help you consume more fruits and vegetables. But, are they really THAT healthy for you? Are they worth the money, or just hype?
What are Super Greens Powders?
First off, superfood and green powders vary significantly depending on the brand. Some will contain unique combinations of dried superfoods, herbs, spices, mushrooms, seaweeds, and algae’s – while others are far more basic. They can be mixed into smoothies, almond/coconut milk, water or baking.
Some can provide you with an uplift in energy, balance your mood, detoxify, boost immune system and provide anti-aging benefits.
One glass of green juice can often contain the equalivent of over 10 servings of fruits and vegetables! In just one scoop you’re able to flood your body with essential nutrients, enzymes, amino’s and pre/probiotics. Superfood drinks are an easy way to stay on top of your nutrition, even when life does get in the way.
But remember, not all are treated the same…
Most will be green in colour, but when it comes to taste they can be compared to licking the bottom of a lawn mower. This varies greatly depending on the brand and quality of the greens powder.
At Biofy, we pride ourselves with creating the best tasting superfood powder on EARTH. How did we make Limitless Greens taste so good? Firstly, we source the highest quality organic superfoods and we ONLY use superfoods. You see, most superfood drinks contain HIDDEN fillers, additives and chemical ingredients. Companies do this to lower cost and generate more profit. You as the customer end up with a poor quality, nasty tasting health drink.
We also spent over a year testing, building and creating the perfect formula for Biofy Limitless Greens. We had one goal: make it taste amazing while still being healthy.
Importance of Polyphenols
While you may think the most important part of a greens powder is the vitamins, minerals and nutrients – it’s actually the polyphenols. Polyphenols may be the single most important nutrient you are NOT getting in your diet.
What are Polyphenols? They are plant derived compounds full of antioxidants and antioxidant properties. They can help with digestion, weight management, boost immunity, fight inflammation, prevent diabetes, cardiovascular disease, neurodegenerative disease and osteoporosis. Let’s just say they’re pretty incredible!
You may have heard a few other terms thrown around referring to polyphenols such as flavonoids (60% of polyphenols), phenolic acid or polyphenolic amides.
Polyphenols are most commonly found in colorful fruits, vegetables, superfoods, herbs and spices.
Turmeric, leafy greens, dark chocolate, berries, beans, nuts, tea, red wine and superfood powders.
Benefits of a polyphenol rich diet:
- Lower blood sugar
- Lower blood pressure
- Reduce risk of diabetes
- Lower risk of blood clots
- Lower LDL (bad cholesterol) and raise HDL (good cholesterol)
- Increase heart health
- Promote brain health
- Fight off harmful bacteria in your gut
- Provide digestive support
- Reduce obesity
Choosing the Best Superfood Powder
This can be a tricky one. Super green powders vary greatly from brand to brand, with each of them advertising big bold promises.
Many contain cheap fillers, additives and chemical ingredients which could in fact hurt your health. They lack the essential polyphenols and antioxidants, and most taste like grass… which makes it very hard to stay consistent.
Which is why it pays to be picky! Look for a greens powder with no artificial ingredients, sugars, colors or flavors.
A few very common “hidden” ingredients to look out for include: Guar gum, Xanthan gum, Magnesium Silicate, Magnesium Stearate (Stearic Acid), Sodium Benzoate, Colors Red/Greens/Blue/Yellow.
