According to the World Health Organization, adults should be eating at least 400g of produce per day to supply critical vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants (7 or 8 half cup-cup servings), but due to the Standard American diet, agriculture practices, and our food choices, most adults come nowhere near this number.
During the past week, how many days did you get at least four cups of colorful fruits and vegetables? If you answered anything less than six, there’s ample reason for a greens supplement to be part of your routine. Plus, using a greens supplement is also an easy way to increase the diversity of plant nutrients in your diet – Anyone else stick to the same 5 or 6 veggies they know they like?
There’s no shortage of greens products available in the marketplace, and they are incredibly popular for many of the reasons I’ve outlined. Now, taking a greens supplement is not a total replacement for getting real, fresh (or frozen) fruits and veggies, but it certainly helps you consistently and conveniently boost the plant nutrient content of your diet. When choosing a greens supplement to include in your supplement regimen, look for these characteristics:
- Potent vegetable blend rich in spirulina, but also rich in overall diversity. It should be the first ingredient in the list of other veggies listed, since they are listed in descending order by weight. LIFE Greens™ contains over 30 types of vegetable concentrates
- Fruit antioxidant blend rich in berry antioxidants. LIFE Greens™ is formulated with 14 varieties of berries and 20 fruits total
- Digestion-supporting enzymes, fibers, and pectins that support nutrient absorption
- Prebiotic fibers and probiotic bacteria to promote healthy bacterial balance and biodiversity in the gut
