While we are “food first” advocates, we believe that anyone can benefit from a healthy boost in nutrients—no matter how “clean” you may eat.
This is why we hope you’ll look to Inspired GREENS Superfood Powder for a convenient way to fill in nutritional gaps and strengthen your immune system, specifically on the days where you’ve eaten a whole pint of Coconut Bliss ice-cream (it’s okay, we know it was an accident).
Our GREENS formula features five exclusive components:
- Greens + Superfoods
- Adaptogenic Support
- Neuro Support
- Liver Support
We’ve already reviewed the importance of probiotics and gut health in this post here, so today, let’s explore the benefits of Greens + Superfoods.
Kale is King (Spinach and Broccoli, Too)
Every scoop of GREENS Superfood Powder contains 2,000mg of TruServ® Organic Greens Blend, which delivers fourteen kale leaves, four spinach leaves, and one broccoli floret—all of which are USDA certified organic. That’s equivalent to one whole USDA serving of vegetables.
Kale is arguably one of the most nutrient-dense plants in the world. It’s a valuable source of anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that help counteract the damage caused by harmful free radicals. Kale also contains powerful compounds called isothocyanates (ITCs) that aid in detoxification.
Like most leafy green vegetables, spinach is a star contender when cancer-fighting foods are on the topic of discussion. It’s particularly rich in carotenoids to protect the body against oxidative stress, and chloroplast that explicitly functions by inhibiting cancerous tumor growth. Spinach also provides plenty of vitamin A and vitamin K—two essential nutrients that support vision and bone health.
Broccoli is yet another high-antioxidant food that helps fight cancer by neutralizing carcinogens and removing toxins from the body. Important minerals found in broccoli—such as calcium, potassium, and magnesium—make it a nutritional powerhouse for reducing inflammation and supporting cardiovascular health, too.
Cheers for Chlorella
Chlorella is the highest-known source of chlorophyll than any other plant (this explains the algae’s deep and rich green hue). Chlorophyll is a type of plant pigment that’s been linked to potential cancer prevention—a recurring theme with ingredients in GREENS.
But here’s a plot twist, studies show that chlorella may help promote weight loss. In 2014, researchers found that daily supplementation with green-plant membranes improved fat loss and reduced cravings by controlling appetite hormones.
The benefits don’t end there, though. Chlorella acts as a natural chelator to detoxify heavy metals in the body, especially lead and mercury. This mechanism is extremely valuable because heavy metal toxicity can lead to lower energy levels and damage organ function.
Your body may be holding onto heavy metals if you have mercury fillings in your teeth, consume fish on a regular basis, or you’ve been vaccinated. Chlorella supplementation may be helpful in preventing toxins from accumulating in the body in the first place.
Get Smarter with Spirulina
Spirulina is very similar to chlorella (we like to call them cousins). This freshwater plant is a complete source of protein, meaning it provides 20 amino acids, including the nine essential amino acids that our body doesn’t produce on its own.
Spirulina is a good source of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids to support brain health. Furthermore, the abundant content of anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties found in spirulina may help protect the body against neurodegenerative diseases.
In one study that looked at an α-synuclein model of Parkinson’s disease, rats who were fed a spirulina-enhanced diet had an increase in neuroprotection. In an additional study, spirulina was shown to prevent memory loss in mice, possibly by reducing oxidative damage and increasing antioxidant activity.
Aquaman Would Approve
Aquamin® is a seaweed extract that’s rich in calcium, magnesium, and 72 other trace minerals. Since this ingredient is derived from a natural source (the cytoskeleton of the red algal Lithothamnion spp), the minerals in Aquamin™ are more bioavailable to your body than other sources of vitamin or electrolyte supplements on the market.
A growing body of research shows that Aquamin® helps maintain healthy bone formation, improve mobility, reduce pain associated with joint disorders, improve gut health, and replenish vital minerals that can be lost during exercise—just to name a few benefits.
Now, we’re not saying that you’ll have dreamy abs like Aquaman if you take Aquamin®, but you'll definitely have stronger bones because of it.
