Buyer's Guide: The best green foods

Since many of us don’t eat the recommended 5 servings of fruit and vegetables a day, concentrated green food and superfood powders can fill the nutritional gap in your diet.


Green Blends

Green foods are a popular nutritional supplement made from various types of nutritional grasses, vegetables and aquatic plants. Combination or single ingredient formulas include wheat grass, barley grass, spirulina, chlorella, alfalfa and other vegetables. 

Green foods are a concentrated, convenient source of many of the same nutrients found in vegetables. They are a great idea for people who don’t eat enough of these green healthy foods (such as spinach, broccoli, kale, etc.) or who want to optimize their nutrition. Supplementing with green superfoods can increase your energy without the drawback of stimulants like caffeine. It can also support immunity, detoxify the body, enhance digestion and help maintain a proper pH (acid/alkaline) balance.* Add a scoop to water daily to help achieve your 5+ servings of greens and vegetables daily.
