5 Green Supplements

While you certainly don't need another reminder to eat your greens, we'd like to add that taking them in supplement form may be well worth your while too.

 

Spirulina:

Spirulina is a type of bacteria that grows in both fresh and saltwater. It's a great source of protein, vitamins B1, B2 and B3, iron, magnesium and potassium, amongst others. It has powerful anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, and has been used for its exceptional nutritional qualities by everyone from Aztec warriors to astronauts in space!  

Wheatgrass:

While using fresh wheatgrass in your smoothie may look as if you've just put your lawn trimmings in a blender, the powerful young grass of the wheat plant Triticum aestivum offers a concentrated dose of nutrients, including iron, calcium, magnesium, amino acids, chlorophyll, and vitamins A, C and E. In addition to its therapeutic dosages of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, enzymes, and phytonutrients, wheatgrass is also a powerful detoxifier - especially of the liver and the blood.  

Chlorella:

The less popular cousin of the famous spirulina, chlorella is a freshwater algae that is said to help boost energy, support weight loss, and detoxify heavy metals like lead and mercury from the body. It's native to Taiwan and Japan and is rich in phytonutrients, including amino acids, chlorophyll, beta-carotene, potassium, phosphorous, biotin, magnesium and the B-complex vitamins.  

Moringa: 

Native to South Asia and now found throughout the tropics, Moringa is known as the 'miracle tree', and has been used for thousands of years in traditional medicine. It is a powerful antioxidant and contains proteins, vitamins and minerals. With high amounts of calcium, iron, vitamins, and essential amino acids, it's said to help lower blood sugar levels, reduce inflammation, maintain healthy cholesterol levels, and more.  

Green Tea Extract

Green tea contains a high concentration of powerful antioxidants called polyphenols, which fight free radicals ' the damaging compounds in the body that have been attributed to the aging process, as well as the development of a number of health problems, including cancer and heart disease. In traditional Chinese and Indian medicine, green tea is used as a stimulant, a diuretic, an astringent, and even to improve heart health. Here in the West, it's touted mainly for its reported weight loss and anti-ageing properties.
