How good are green powders for you?
We’ve been told for years about the importance of consuming lots of green leafy vegetables in our diet. But as we know, the hustle and bustle of modern-day life sometimes makes it hard to cram all that healthy broccoli, kale, spinach onto our plates each day.
Vegetables are great for alkalinizing our body’s PH levels. When our bodies are acidic, unfriendly bacteria, viruses, yeast and other unfriendly organisms flourish. When our bodies are slightly alkaline (from eating alkaline foods like raw veggies and green food powders), it’s very hard for unfriendly bacteria, cancer, yeast and viruses to survive.
The ideal alkaline/acid balance is 7.4, which is slightly higher than the neutral state of 7.0. When the pH drops below 7.0, your body is acidic. When it dips below 6.0 (critical pH), our teeth start to demineralize and our cells start to dysfunction, which can lead to disease. Sounds pretty bad, right?
This is where supergreen powders come in. They’re designed to make consumption of many green foods a whole lot easier, and they balance your body’s alkalinity.
Powders come in varying shades of green and are fairly fine, making them easy to digest, and can be added to water, smoothies, juices or any beverage. The ingredient lists are usually long and impressive and include land vegetables and grains such as wheatgrass, spinach, broccoli and beetroot; aquatic plants and algae like kelp, spirulina and chlorella; probiotics and enzymes such as lactobacillus acidophilus and coenzyme Q10; herb and spice extracts including dandelion, wolfberry and ginger; and vitamins and minerals.
Whether you consume your fruits and veggies in a cold-pressed juice or powder form, the main benefit of consuming high amounts of produce is the alkalinizing effect on your body.
