When my son was young, he turned up his nose at everything green. Of course, being a mother and health stressed so much in my childhood I just made him sit at the table until he ate it all. It’s a good thing he’s changed his mind now, from a motherly perspective. Green vegetables and other green things(we’ll get to in a few minutes) can be one of the best things you do for yourself. Try to get a good mixture of green vegetables each day.
I’m sure you have seen green drinks. They come in many forms and recipes. Here in the supermarkets in Seattle I have found a most wonderful green drink that is made with at least 30 different fruits, vegetables, grasses and algae. Wheat grass is particularly good for you, it is highly recommended by my cat Moochie. He loves his wheat grass and powdered wheat grass in a drink is very good for you. Green drinks can be detoxifying and give you plenty of alkalizing amino acids, minerals and antioxidants.
Some of the benefits of greens are
Calorie for calorie greens are the most concentrated source of nutrition of any food
Greens can lower your cholesterol levels and your blood pressure
Greens can boost your immune system
Greens can help protect against all forms of cancer
Greens enhance bone health and guard against osteoporosis
Greens regulate inflammation and blood clotting
Greens help prevent and possibly treat atherosclerosis by reducing calcium in arterial plaques
Best of all, greens give you all kinds of energy and can help you lose weight.
Supplemental greens are wonderful. You can usually get at least 10 different greens in a powder. If you are interested in energy look for Chlorella and Spirulina in the ingredients. I have been taking green powder and Spirulina for over 10 months now and my energy is fantastic. I wish I had had this much energy when I was 30. Now that my knee is healed I am getting a lot of exercise and losing weight quickly. Yipee! I take All Day Energy Greens mixed in water but you can mix it into many different smoothies.
With all this energy…Don’t forget to exercise.
Vitamins are important. A very good habit to have. Buy the best for the least amount of money. Get your Green Coffee and for a good price. Go to ASN Vitamins or Puritan’s Pride under the Fountain of Youth icon
