Don't Forget To Drink Your Greens!
This week, The Weekly Beet reports from the streets of London. After recovering from Jet Lag, we drove straight past the pub in search of a new Green Superfood supplement! Seeing as we left our favorite one in America, we went to Fresh & Wild as we knew they would have a big selection!
For our fabulous readers who do not know about Green Superfood Powder, it is a supplement consisting of essential greens, sea vegetables, algaes and enzymes. It comes in the form of a powder that is easily mixed with water or your favorite type of juice. Why supplement with Superfoods? Because many of us do not get our daily dose of 5 to 9 servings of fruits and vegetables, there are supplements out there that make it easy to get an adequate supply of greens, as well as other essentials. Luckily, companies like our favorite Superfood supplier in the United Kingdom, Kiki, are helping to fill in the gap of missing vitamins and nutrients. Not only do greens supply the body with amazing immune system boosters, they contain incredible detoxing elements and phytonutrients, which are cancer fighters. Also, greens supply us with an amazing amount of calcium, a fact that many women don't even know. So, if you are NOT a milk drinker, we say fabulous! Just don't forget to drink your greens!
To give you an idea of what Superfood Powders contain, these are some of the ingredients found in Kiki's Living Superfood:
- Land vegetables: Whole leaf barley grass, whole leaf wheat grass, nettle leaf, shave grass(horsetail), alfalfa leaf juice, dandelion leaf juice, kamut grass juice, barley grass juice, oat grass juice, burdock root, broccoli juice, kale juice, spinach juice, parsley juice, carob prod, ginger root, nopal cactus, amla berry
