Seven Top Reasons to Consume a Greens Powder
Greens are essential for phase 1 and phase 2 of liver detoxification meaning your body can eliminate toxins, heavy metals and hormones, rather than these re-circulating, which would increase their potency and cause a whole host of health problems. With adequate detoxification your body also eliminates waste effectively and your digestive system stays healthy.
The high bioavailability of greens powder means that the nutrients are absorbed extremely well by the body and available to be used to straight away. This not only means maximum health benefits are obtained, but many people experience an immediate energy boost from such a concentrated source of nutrition.
- Gut Health
Greens powder is high in fibre and vitamin C. Fibre acts as food for our beneficial bacteria, allowing them to thrive and produce short chain fatty acids such as butyrate. Butyrate has a natural anti-inflammatory effect on the gut, supporting our immune heath. The trillions of beneficial bacteria that inhabit your gut must be fed to support their growth and development and the long term health of your microbiome. Vitamin C acts as an antioxidant and strengthens our gut barrier function against potential pathogens.
