Great Formula, Even Greater Tasting Superfoods

It can be easy to get wrapped up in some of the flashier offerings in the supplement space. Pre-workouts, pump boosters, creatine, protein powders... There's a lot out there, and all of them serve a purpose.


But oftentimes, what you really want is to just feel well. To feel like your body is a machine. No aches, no pains, no problems.

There's nothing better than feeling great

Your body has a lot of needs. It needs the proper amount of calories, the correct ratio of macronutrients, and a baseline level of vital important micronutrients at all times. If something gets out of whack, you can feel it.


When you're getting everything you need, the difference is palpable. You feel like you're ticking on all cylinders. You feel more energized – cleaner.

Ultimate nourishment

As it turns out, your mother was right. To maintain optimal health, greens should be in the picture. The issue is that greens are inconvenient to consume in adequate quantities. Cooking vegetables isn't the most satisfying experience, regardless of the health benefits, and it's tough to get enough plant diversity for a full spectrum of micronutrients.


That's where greens powders come in. You can meet your daily nutrient needs with a scoop of powder mixed in a bottle of water.


It's simple, and it works… but only one brand has truly conquered the taste and flavor part of the equation:

INSPIRED GREENS

Greens and Superfoods

TruServ is a blend of vegetables that offers a genuine serving of veggies, including Organic Kale, Organic Broccoli, and Organic Spinach. These vegetables provide antioxidants to combat free radicals and various health benefits. Kale supports gut health,[1] broccoli offers vital nutrients and supports the immune system,[2] while spinach provides nitrates[3] beneficial to the cardiovascular system.


Chlorella is rich in chlorophyll, often referred to as "living food" or "green blood" due to its structural similarity to hemoglobin. Chlorophyll and its derivative, chlorophyllin, help protect mitochondria from oxidative damage, contributing to cellular health.[4-6] Studies indicate that chlorella can support weight loss,[7] enhance immunity markers,[8] reduce blood pressure,[9] and absorb environmental metals,[10-13] potentially reducing mercury accumulation.[14-16]


Spirulina, a blue-green microalgae, is a common component of green powders known for its high antioxidant content.[17,18] It significantly enhances exercise performance and is a rich source of chlorophyll and proteins,[19] including the anti-inflammatory protein pigment C-Phycocyanin.[20] Spirulina also contains carbs that boost immunity, such as immulina,[21] and offers a high vitamin B12 content[22] along with other healthy constituents like beta-carotene and zeaxanthin.[23] This microalgae leads to several human benefits including better lipid profiles,[24-29] increased athletic endurance,[30,31] and improved power.[32]


Aquamin, a marine-derived mineral complex, is a remarkable source of calcium and trace minerals.[33] It can help with bone and joint problems,[33,34] and its content of trace minerals can assist in avoiding deficiencies that may adversely affect your health.

Adaptogenic support

Ashwagandha, a potent adaptogen, is a widely celebrated supplement due to its wide range of beneficial applications, primarily its ability to reduce chronically-elevated cortisol levels.[35,36] This process leads to numerous benefits, including increased testosterone levels,[37] improved fertility,[38] enhanced athletic performance,[37] better body composition,[39] and a reduction in fatigue.[40]


Maca is a highly beneficial yet underrated supplement known to enhance libido, fertility, mood, and cognition, despite needing larger doses to show effects. Maca has been associated with numerous benefits such as improved libido in men and women,[41-43] menopausal symptom relief,[44] enhanced male fertility,[44,45] better mood and reduced anxiety,[46] and potential cognitive benefits.[47,48]

Neuro Support

Sunflower lecithin has dual roles in Inspired Greens. Firstly, it improves dispersion in fluids, including intestinal fluids,[49] potentially enhancing the bioavailability[50] of other ingredients like ashwagandha. It's also a provider of phosphatidylcholine, which plays a major role in synaptic function. This contributes to the cognitive benefits of choline, such as improved memory and focus due to increased levels of acetylcholine,[51] the "learning neurotransmitter".


Lion's mane, a popular mushroom in the supplement industry, is known to boost nerve growth factor (NGF), aiding nerve cell survival[52,53] and hence enhancing cognition, reducing inflammation, and improving brain function and health. It has been shown in studies to prevent memory loss in animals,[54] reduce fatigue[55], and potentially improve sleep.[56]


Ginkgo biloba is typically used for enhancing memory by improving long-term potentiation.[57] It's known to increase levels of dopamine and noradrenaline in the prefrontal cortex after two weeks, although not immediately after the first dose.[58] A 2018 meta-analysis indicated that ginkgo could prevent cognitive decline,[59] possibly by improving blood flow and neurotransmission.

Liver Support

Stinging Nettle has been employed in the treatment of serious inflammatory conditions,[60] for prostate support, and for hair care due to its capacity to block DHT production.[61] Besides a wealth of beneficial vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and polyphenols,[60-62] the primary constituent of Stinging Nettle is beta-sitosterol, which can assist in improving endothelial function and supporting hair growth.[62]


Dandelion extract is typically used in weight loss formulas due to its diuretic properties and its ability to maintain electrolyte balance.[63] It also provides protective benefits for the kidneys[64] and liver, such as guarding against acetaminophen-induced injuries.[65]


Milk thistle's key components are from silymarin, a group of three chemicals including silibinin, silydianin, and silychristin.[66] Milk thistle has an extensive body of research supporting its use as a "liver tonic", with benefits such as protecting and normalizing the liver from drug-induced disease,[67-69] rescuing liver function from alcohol abuse,[70-75] providing general liver toxicity support,[76-78] and protection from environmental toxins.[79]

Gut Support

Inulin, like sunflower lecithin, performs two functions in this context. As a soluble fiber that isn't digested in the small intestine, it serves as a prebiotic,[80] promoting gut health.[81] In addition, it enhances the flavor of the product while also adding bulk to the formula.


Last up is our probiotic blend. Probiotics are live microbial feed supplements that improve intestinal microbial balance,[82] often used to aid conditions such as allergies, gastroenteritis, IBS, diarrhea, among others[83]. Much of the research on probiotics goes beyond gut health, extending to immunity enhancement.[84-86]


Building a clean, resilient body

The modern lifestyle is proliferated with all manner of toxins and pollutants that all work together to parasitically sap you of vitality and strength.


It's more important than ever to combat these industrial forces and ensure your body has every tool it needs to operate in perfect harmony. Inspired Greens is an excellent first step.


One scoop daily is all it takes to begin marching on the path towards optimal health.
