Here are 5 benefits to eating a serve of leafy greens daily.

1. Vitamins and Nutrients
2. Anti-Oxidants
3. Healthier Gut
4. Sun Protection
5. Low Calorie & Low Carb

There’s no doubt about it, your mom was right about this one: eating your vegetables is good for you! And, when it comes to choosing what veggies to eat, it’s hard to beat leafy greens. In case doing what your mom says isn’t motivation enough, here are five great reasons to gobble down your greens.

1. Naturally Packed with Vitamins and Nutrients

Leafy greens like spinach, kale, and salad greens are fabulous sources of vitamins A, C, E and K. Add broccoli florets, mustard greens and a bit of bok choy to the menu and you’ll also add lots of B-vitamins. For example, we can’t make folate (vitamin B9) ourselves, but our bodies need it for DNA synthesis, cell growth and repair, and supporting a healthy immune system. What’s a great source of folate? Yep. Leafy greens.

2. Antioxidants are Anti-Cancer Agents

Loaded with antioxidants, dark leafy greens help our cells stay healthy and can provide a boost when it comes to cancer prevention. The National Cancer Institute provides this fact sheet about antioxidants and how they can help clean up the free radicals associated with reduced cancer risk. Who would have thought a heaping helping of greens could be so beneficial?

3. A Healthy Gut is a Happy Gut

Gut health depends on having an assortment of beneficial gut bacteria and enough roughage to keep things moving. Plenty of greens help maintain a healthy gut biome, impact gut PH balance and permeability and also help insure regular bowel movements.

5 Greens is a must for your kitchen bench and a great simple way to fill those nutritional gaps created when life gets busy.

4. Sun Protection

Did you know you can boost your resistance to sun exposure and skin damage by eating lots of leafy greens? The antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects of chemicals found in greens can help mitigate damage from the sun (though we wouldn’t recommend relying exclusively on big salads to protect you from the ravages of too much sun exposure).

5. Greens Don’t Have Tons of Calories or Carbs

Low on the glycaemic index, leafy greens won’t send your blood sugar soaring no matter how many you eat. Steady levels of blood sugar in turn, prevent insulin spikes and the resulting post-carb hangovers that can result. If you are concerned about weight loss, adding lots of greens helps you reach and then maintain your ideal weight.

5 Greens Powder Can Help You Stay on Track

Super Greens can be your smart option to getting your greens intake. Yes, we know we should eat many helpings of fruits and vegetables every day, but the reality is we live busy lives and sometimes that can mean nutritional gaps. We may have the best intentions when it comes to eating clean, nutritious food but even so we might not always meet our goals. We wouldn’t suggest that 5 Greens Powder is no replacement for eating your veggies, but it’s a great way to make sure you’re getting the nutrients you need every day. This Greens Powder Supplement from Life Grip really will change your life!

You want your supplements and vitamins to be in their most natural state possible just as nature intended.

3 things to look for when choosing a supplements or vitamin product:

  1. Ingredients List: you want minimal ingredients (only the ones you need, without fillers) and nothing artificial.
  2. You want to know where the ingredients come from, this is very important.
  3. Calculate the cost per serve: total cost / container servings = cost per serve. This is the true cost of any vitamin or supplement.

Don't be fooled by flashy diagrams, infographics and fitness models. Have a look at the container and nutrition table. Is this the best value and quality combined?
