Green super-foods are very rich and abundant sources of nutrients that include algae, green plants, vegetables and grasses. These amazing foods contain not only a wide range of minerals and vitamins vital to our well-being, but also contain chlorophyll and variety of phytochemicals that offer our body protection from many unwanted conditions. In our home we strive to find different ways to take our greens every day. To increase the amount and effectiveness of our holistic living skills geared to create lasting well-being for each one of us, we love using the Green Abundance powder. This wonderful blend of some of the best foods we have on Earth is nick named by many a "green super-food", "the greens", "super smoothie", and similar. These nick names tell you that there is much to be enjoyed about the Green Abundance blend.

Much of our health is determined by the way we live our lives, and nutrition choices are a huge part of that equation. My personal belief is that we shall all have at least a serving of rich and abundant blend of greens every day in order to better support our immunity and to increase the quality of our daily diet. Many people choose to start their day with one or two tablespoons of a well blended group of super greens. Adding it to water, juice, vegetable juice, smoothie, yogurt, kefir are some of great and delicious ways to do that every day.

Organically grown greens and algae from clean, pure sources are some of the most healing and nutrient rich food we have available today. By choosing organically and responsibly grown greens and algae dehydrated on low temperatures and ground without further industrial processing, we provide ourselves with a living and naturally potent whole food with an extremely wide range of vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, chlorophyl, phytochemicals, proteins, etc. Their make up is not only excellent supply of nutrients, but also helps and boosts detoxification over time.

There is a growing number of products on the market offering various combinations of green super-foods. One important distinction is that some come int he form of powder and some as juice extracts. It is important to realize that even though juice extract may have certain benefits it is a refined food and is not a comparable product to powdered and whole food sources. There is never any fiber left in the juice extracts and many of the important phytonutrients are lost in the refining process of producing the juice. To create a juice product with a longer shelf life producers mus use some kind of preservative and often add maltodextrin as well as various sweeteners to make the juice sweeter and more palatable to larger number of consumers. These refining processes significantly decrease the benefits and nutritional value you are looking for when deciding to add green super-foods to your daily regimen. Aside from shortcomings of a juice extracts both juices and many other forms of green super-food products contain "natural flavors". Natural flavors is a catch all name for a number of different food additives and flavor enhancers, many of which we shall strive to eliminate from our diets. In personal product selection of all food items, we are careful to steer clear of 'natural flavor' additives and believe that they have no room in a good, quality green powder blend.

Every person's well-being is directly influenced by their daily diet which makes eating fresh, pure, high quality foods a very important priority. Nutritional supplements in the form of vitamin and mineral caplets or drinks have many benefits, but cannot replace a well balanced and minimally processed daily diet for any of us. When choosing a green super-food product to add to your daily diet, it is important to make sure that you are choosing a whole food product made up of minimally refined ingredients of the highest quality and without various chemical food additives and preservatives. It is also of utmost importance to make sure your blend of choice is made up of only organically grown and/or wild crafted whole foods and that ingredients do not include any of the following: synthetic vitamins, chemicals, preservatives, flavors, additives, fillers like rice starch, bran, ground seeds and other materials many manufacturers add to use less expensive green vegetables.

Greens have been a daily part of our own diets here at Body&Mind for many years now and we love their effect on our bodies. The Green Abundance is our favorite blend because it truly is a wonderful blend of certified organic dehydrated powdered continental and sea vegetables from the group of foods that are some of the most important gifts Nature has created for us.
