I hope that this months nutrition blog theme has inspired you to keep up your awesome summer eats, and include more greens in your diet. If I have said it once, I will say it a million more times, greens are power houses of nutrition!
Now, I do believe that fresh is always best, but I also know that there are times in everyone’s life when perfect nutrition has to take a back seat to other things going on. Long hours at work, tight September budgets (for time and for money), waning produce availability at the market and other factors can hinder us from eating as well as we should. If this is you, I would like to talk to you about Genesta Super Greens Powder!
This powdered green supplement boasts some awesome stats. It is filler free (many of the other green powder products on the market add things like soy lecithin to their greens to make them more cost effective to manufacture, and less potent when it is greens that you are actually wanting to purchase). It’s packed full of vitamins and minerals and so many more little goodies! Lets take a look at some if its stand-out players…
- Chlorella – Chlorella is a blue green algae that is able to bind with the heavy metals mercury, lead and cadmium, and usher them safely out of our bodies. This is known as Chelation, or heavy metal cleansing. Clearly, heavy metals are poisonous to us, and getting them safely out of our bodies is very important. Chlorella has also been show to have anti-tumour effects in studies conducted on mice.
- Spirulina – Spirulina is another blue green algae, that is made up of a whopping 60% protein, and is one of the planets highest protein containing foods. It is also a rich source of the fatty acids GLA, ALA, EPA and DHA, which help every single cell in your body function, most importantly your nervous system and your brain cells. It is also rich in B vitamins and minerals, as well as a plethora of antioxidants.
- FOS- FOS or, Fructooligosaccharides (I dare you to say that word three times fast) are prebiotics. That means that they are the foods the probiotics feed on to live! This will help you to keep the beneficial bacteria count in your body high, which is important for digestion, elimination and your immune system.
Super Greens Powder also contains broccoli powder, barley grass, wheat grass, alfalfa seed powders, bromaline, ginko biloba and billberry.
So, if you ever find yourself in need of a little extra nutritional support, this formula is an excellent option to reach for. You can find it at our Semperviva Sun lifestyle store and yoga studio.
