12 Solid reasons to try our Organic Supergreens Powder

Here are 12 reasons you should try it TODAY!

1. It is PACKED with essential nutrients.

As you most likely know from reading my emails, according to the USDA, 96% of us are deficient in one or more nutrients which can have negative health consequences like weight gain, fatigue, muscle cramps, accelerated aging and even diseases like cancer.

Because we are incredibly passionate about enabling people to reverse nutrient deficiency, we made sure our Organic Supergreens Powder was BRIMMING with the good stuff.

It contains:

  • 300% of the RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance) for thyroid-supportive iodine
  • 210% immune-boosting vitamin C
  • 100% vitamin A (from beta carotene)
  • 50% vitamin B12
  • 25% vitamin K
  • And more!

In one delicious tablespoon.

Which is probably why I feel like I could run a half marathon after I add it to my morning shake!

2. It helps cultivate a healthy GUT.

Polyphenols are plant compounds found in foods (like the dark berries, ginger, and broccoli in our Supergreens Powder) with a number of benefits including the ability to favorably affect gut health. In fact, research from the New Zealand Institute of Plant and Food Research found that polyphenols encourage the growth of beneficial gut bacteria!

Our Superfood Powder is also FREE of gut damaging cereal grasses like wheatgrass and barley grasses which most greens powders include!

3. It may prevent DISEASE.

Polyphenols (as we talked about above) have empirically documented the remarkable ability to reduce inflammation and prevent diseases like heart disease, osteoporosis, cancer and maybe even neurodegenerative conditions and diabetes.

According to GreenMedinfo turmeric has over 500 benefits for 100 conditions. A recent study found that a daily dose (200 mg) could improve blood vessel function in only 2 weeks more effectively than aspirin.

Powdered ginger contains a compound (6-shogaol) that has also been shown to kill cancer stems cells 10,000 times more effectively than chemotherapy.

Aaaaand if that weren't sufficient, Spirulina, our base, has also been shown to negatively affect cancer cell growth, bolster immune function and improve several risk factors for heart disease.

In other words, that teensy little tablespoon contains a PLETHORA of disease-conquering nutrients!

4. It could help you live LONGER.

Those awesome polyphenols have also been found to promote longevity! In a study from the Journal of Nutrition it was found that those who consumed more polyphenols lived LONGER.

Reishi mushroom is also revered for its life extending properties. In fact, one study demonstrates its ability to increase lifespan by 9-20% or an average of 7-16 years.

The Okinawans (longest living population ever studied) also credit their daily turmeric tea as one of the reasons they consistently measure 25 years younger than their actual age!

(Who doesn't want to live longer?)

5. It will enhance your ability to DETOX.

In today's toxic world (we now have over ‘mmm chemicals in circulation) our ability to detoxify can make or break our health.

Chlorella is used heavily in Japan and is one of the most effective detox substances studied! Spirulina has also demonstrated an impressive ability to carry heavy metals out of the body.

A daily dose of both superfoods is like a 1-2 toxin PUNCH!

6. It fights INFLAMMATION.

Our Organic Supergreens powder contains some of the most anti-inflammatory foods ever studied including turmeric, ginger, blueberries, flaxseeds, pineapple and broccoli!

Because inflammation is at the root of ill health and disease, taking measures to reduce it daily is critical to long term, vibrant health.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, after all.

7. It can improve DIGESTION and gut function.

Ginger has been shown to reduce bloating and constipation, improves absorption and stomach ulcers, and is 6-8 times more effective than the drug Prevacid for GERD!

Aloe vera leaf is a potent antiviral, antibacterial and antiparasitic that has been shown to be helpful for candida, parasites, ulcers, gut infections and IBD and IBS.

A compound called bromelain, found in pineapple has also been shown to improve protein digestion and protect against diarrhea and IBD.

Aaaaaand because our superfoods contain so many vitals nutrients, we've also added digestive enzymes which enable you to assimilate them effortlessly.

8. It may boost your IMMUNE function.

Vitamin C is one of the most immune supportive nutrients studied which is why we packed our powder with 210% of the RDA all from completely natural sources like Amla berry (the richest source of natural VC on the planet) and acerola cherry. Other ingredients like reishi mushroom, turmeric, and spirulina have also empirically demonstrated the ability to boost immunity.

9. It could promote WEIGHT LOSS.

Hypothyroidism, a common cause of weight gain, is associated with Iodine deficiency which is thought to affect 40% of the population worldwide!  

Because our powders contains 300% of the RDA of iodine from sea veggies like dulse, kelp and spirulina, it may promote thyroid health.

Many of our other superfoods like turmeric,ginger, reishi mushroom, kale, spinach, and acerola Cherry are also associated with weight loss independently.

10. It may boost BRAIN FUNCTION.

Alzheimer's is America’s MOST feared disease. The degenerative process that leads to it, is also thought to begin around 30 years prior to its diagnosis, which is why a daily dose of brain-boosting nutrients is essential!

A 2012 study showed that reishi mushroom can have brain protective effects against neurodegenerative conditions like Alzheimer’s and Huntington’s.

Recent research published in The Journal of Agriculture and Food Science has also shown that berries can also prevent age-related memory decline and preserve brain health.

Research has also confirmed that spirulina may also be able to improve cognitive performance in children, protect the brain from degenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s AND prevent memory loss in adults.

(Superfoods = SuperBRAIN!)

11. It is CONVENIENT.

If you had to forage, purchase, wash, cut and prepare all of the superfoods in our Organic Supergreens Powder every day, you would accomplish little else!

And frankly, that's probably NOT the life you've always imagined.

(Unless you're a chef or super-devoted mother, in which case I envy you!;)

So save your precious time and FLOOD your body with 19 organic inflammation-reducing feel-good nutrients in 5 seconds flat. Then move on with your day nourished and energized.

12. It is DELICIOUS!

Perhaps my favorite part about our Organic Superfood Powder is that it doesn't taste like a Superfood Powder.

No chalky, grassy taste WHATSOEVER.

Research has shown that enjoying what you're drinking (or eating) actually IMPROVES nutrient absorption (Yay!) which is why we made sure it was minty and refreshing!

Even our 2 year old son drinks it every morning. We call it his “ninja juice.” We're confident you'll love it just as much as he does!

It’s truly convenience without the compromise and we hope it takes your health to a whole new level and puts a little spring in your step, like it does ours!

Happy Paleo-ing!
