Do you know where your greens come from? The answer isn’t as black and white as you think...
There’s no denying that green powders are an incredibly potent, natural source of raw fuel that our bodies need so they can perform at their very best every day. Providing energy, improving digestion, increasing metabolism and easing fatigue, they’re a quick and easy way to bring green foods into your diet and can be little jars of wonder. We say “can” because not all green powders are created equal. In fact, some may not be nearly as good for you as you’d imagine…
When was the last time you thought about where your green powders comes from? Most are grown in China where 20% of the ground is toxic and much of the water is also polluted. Not so with Irish brand, One Nutrition Power Greens. From its spirulina and chlorella, which are organically grown in India (the world’s first supplier of spirulina) to its brassicas (grown on an organic farm in Germany) and its wheat and barley grasses (grown organically in Utah in the US), its blend of ingredients is rigorously tested for contaminants, purity and toxicity.
Humans are not designed to be able to digest grass (cows have four stomachs to do this!), therefore why do we think we can digest wheat and barley grass powder? These products are literally grass ground down into an indigestible powder. In order for us to be able to digest the nutritional benefits of wheatgrass and barley grass, the grasses must first be juiced. Power Greens contains wheat and barley grass juice powder, so it is the juice that is dried and then powdered. Not only does this further concentrate the nutrients, but it means the body absorbs them much more easily. It is this crucial extra step that most other green powders skip to keep costs down.
Power Greens also contains spirulina, a protein-dense microalgae that grows in fresh water and contains a full suite of all eight essential amino acids. Gram for gram, it also packs 58 times the iron found in spinach. Chlorella, another famed algae, is chlorophyllrich to help cleanse the body, while vitamins B6 and B12 contribute to a normal energy-yielding metabolism and to easing fatigue.
By delivering concentrated green food nutrition in a way that suits modern lifestyles, Power Greens is the quick, easy, smart and safe way to bring potent green foods into your diet, providing the fuel your body needs to perform at its best. Power Greens is available in powder, sachets and capsules. The ideal way to boost your five-a-day on the go!
