20 Mar What’s so super about Supergreens?
We might all debate what the perfect ‘healthy’ diet is, but we know that eating whole-foods including a wide range of nutrients and avoiding sugar and processed foods is vital. While we might aim for the perfect diet, it’s not always that easy.
Whether it’s a heavy training load, lack of access to fresh produce, or little time to prepare fresh food, we can sometimes miss out on vital nutrients. Supergreens powders are an easy way to increase your daily nutrients, so let’s explore the benefits they can bring to your health and immune function.
What are Supergreens?
Essentially, Supergreens are a blend of vegetables (and in our case also superfruits), which contain all the vitamins, minerals, proteins and enzymes you need to benefit your health and support your immune system. The high levels of chlorophyll and antioxidants in Supergreens can help to reduce inflammation, boost your immune system, and promote healthy digestion.
Why use Supergreens?
It can be difficult to consume the right amount of vitamins and minerals every day to combat the impact of heavy training, and so a greens supplement is a convenient way to boost your nutrients and fill any gaps. If you’ve ever tried a Supergreens powder, you’ll know them to be earthy tasting and hardly enjoyable… which is why we’ve blended our Supergreens with yummy cranberry so you can drink them just with water (without holding your nose!).
What is special about Bindi Supergreens?
To be honest, our Supergreens are not the average powder out there. They are vegan and are free from dairy, soy, wheat, gluten and lactose – and they still taste great. We actually blend 35 ingredients, including Spirulina, Barley grass, wheat grass, alfalfa grass, Chorella powder plus Acai Berry, Noni fruit, Amla fruit, Mangosteen fruit, Goji Berry fruit, Acerola Berry, Strawberry, Blueberry, Cranberry, Rosehip, Bilberry and Flaxseed Meal. And more to be honest 😉
You will find antioxidants in the green tea extract; anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits in mangosteen powder; and flavonoids in maca powder to boost your mood, energy and lower blood pressure too. Next time check out a supermarket brand; chances are there will be only 5 active ingredients (and therefore a limited nutrient profile) and will have a sweetener and no yummy natural flavour.
