Review of Organisource Supergreens Powder
We tend to “super-size” everything, especially food—often to the harm of our health. But super greens —those that are nutrient dense —actually are super because they help nourish the brain, bones, muscles, skin, hair, nails, heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, reproductive system, pancreas, and immune system! With continued use superfoods can correct imbalances and make it easier to adopt a more natural diet. I’ve just come off a long journey – Dallas, Norfolk, Hamilton, Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa, London, Spain ~ Phew!
Needless to say, at the end of our journey I was sick and tired. I recently ran across organic Supergreens powder on Instagram and I was invited to be in the #organisourcearmy. For those of you who know me well, know that I am SUPER picky. So, I used this product for about 2 weeks BEFORE I dared post anything online.
I’m a scientist by nature and by training, so of course I had to do a wee bit of research about the product that I was asked to promote — before recommending to my online family. I also encourage you to do a little research for yourself and compare the produce with other super greens powders on the market.
Five reasons I like the organic Supergreens powder by Organisource
- It tastes GOOD. It’s sweetened with stevia so it can be easily mixed in protein shakes and smoothies boosting your drink to one that is healthy-gut promoting, metabolism supporting and detoxifying with very little effort. For me, the taste is just as important as the health benefits. I have a very healthy gag reflex so if a food or drink is gross…well, you get the picture.
- It’s easy to make. Just add water! The important thing about Organisource Supergreens powder is that it doesn’t clump together that much. Who wants to be dragging around a hand blender? IMO! I travel a lot and this will be one of the supplements that gets stuffed into my bag.
- It gives me energy. My energy levels were low after traveling to four countries in three countries in a matter of a few weeks. Now it’s returning
- It’s an easy way to get Superfoods and Supergreens into your body. With this super greens powder you can do so without having to buy multiple products, which can get expensive.
- It’s priced well. Providing good value for money.
A little breakdown of the ingredients:
SUPER FOODS Kale•Spirulina•Spinach
These are no ordinary greens! The dark green pigment and chlorophyll give these super greens major antioxidant powers. Supergreens are high in phytonutrients, provide digestive enzymes, are a good source of fiber and help to heal our tissues. I used to take spirulina alone and then drink another green powder drink. But now all I have to do is mix up one batch of yummy goodness. Spirulina is also extremely high in protein, so if you are vegan or vegetarian, you should definitely be taking this supplement on the regular.
PROTEIN FRUITS: Blueberries•Raspberries•Strawberries•Apple
Protein fruits protect against free radicals – or unstable molecules, that cause damage to your cells, tissues, and DNA. Unchecked free radical activity has been linked to cancer, heart disease. Scientists have found berries have some of the highest antioxidant levels of any fresh fruits (measured as ORAC). These berries have an #ORACscore ranging from 1750-2000. (To put that into perspective, there are only 4 foods higher than this- Goji berries being the highest with an ORAC score of 25,300). If you are into #ketogenicweightloss or are attempting to eat less, carbs then you already know that these berries have a low amount ofnet carbs (3-3.5).
HEALTHY FIELDS BLEND: Flax•Barleygrass•Wheatgrass
Flaxseeds has more polyphenol antioxidants than blueberries, more omega-3 fatty acids found in salmon, and a unique fiber named mucilage, rarely found in foods. Flaxseed also decreases the ratio of bad cholesterol to good, and works to protect blood vessels from inflammation. Wheatgrass contains all nine essential amino acids, and is packed with chlorophyll, vitamins and minerals all offering a long list of benefits. Barleygrass is a multi-nutrient rich super food that is loaded with vitamins such as A, B1, B2, B3, B6, C, E and K. It has is brimming with electrolytes (magnesium, phosphorous,potassium) and essential minerals (zinc, iron,calcium).
GARDEN PRODUCE BLEND: Tomato • Carrot • Beets
Carrots are a good source of Vitamin A also an antioxidant, which works to support cognitive function, eye health, and may promote healthy looking skin. In terms of conventional antioxidants, organic tomatoes (of which this powder is made) provide natural amounts of vitamin C, beta-carotene, manganese and vitamin E. In terms of phytonutrients, tomatoes are super fruits! Beetroots are a great sources of potassium, which help regulate the body’s fluids and prevent water retention, a common source of unnecessary extra weight.
Together these ingredients result in a tremendous amount of nutrition that vastly exceeds what’s offered in a multivitamin, and in some cases, can substitute for antioxidant supplements, digestive health supplements, adaptogen supplements, and some natural herb supplements. To answer your question: Superfoods meet and exceed all our protein requirements, our vitamin and mineral requirements, glyconutrient (essential polysaccharide sugar) requirements, essential fatty acid requirements, immune system requirements, and so much more. That is why they are SUPER!
