Study after study has found that people who regularly consume green super foods have more energy, fewer digestive problems and overall better health.
(Vocus/PRWEB) March 15, 2011
Doctors, nutritionists and fitness experts agree: The key to staying strong and energized is good nutrition, and the best way to get your nutrients is from food. Some of the most accessible and absorbable nutrients and antioxidants come from fruits and vegetables, and experts recommend you get 5-9 servings of them daily to keep you fit and energized.
But for most of us, 5-9 servings are pretty difficult to get. Who has the time? Some people don’t even like fruits and vegetables or don’t have access to quality fruits and vegetables that are appealing enough to eat 5-9 times per day.
The good news is that there are ways to get the nutritional benefits of fruits and vegetables without having to actually eat 5-9 servings per day. The solution? Four amazing super foods: Spirulina, Chlorella, Wheatgrass and Barley Grass. These amazing foods actually contain exponentially higher levels of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and amino acids than most fruits and vegetables, and because the nutrients come from a food, they are most easily recognized and absorbed in the body.
What Makes Green Foods Such Potent Energy Boosters?
One of the keys to staying energetic is to maintain the proper pH balance in the body. Many of the foods we eat, such as meat and pasta, are acid-forming foods. Acid causes the body to store fat. As long as the body is excessively acidic, it will be very difficult to lose the fat. It also slows the body down and prevents the cells from absorbing nutrients and oxygen. This can slow you down and make you feel tired.
Green foods are packed with nutrients that alkalize the body and neutralize the acid, getting the body into proper pH balance. This clears the way for nutrients and oxygen to enter the cells and boost your energy.
Green Energy Booster #1: Wheatgrass
Wheatgrass refers to the young grass of the common wheat plant that is freshly juiced or dried into a powder. It is the ultimate jump-start, feel-good, alkalizing fuel. Wheatgrass has roughly 20 times the nutrient content of fruits and vegetables. It’s a “rainbow food”, meaning it contains everything you need to live. You could live on wheatgrass. Wheatgrass contains chlorophyll, which is the green lifeblood of plants.
Even if you are allergic to wheat, many wheat grass products are free of gluten—the common allergen in wheat.
Green Energy Booster #2: Barley Grass
Like wheatgrass, it is one of the highest alkaline foods there is. Barley Grass is packed with vitamins, minerals enzymes and amino acids that help build stamina, heal injuries and boost energy. It is an excellent source of protein and contains 11 times as much calcium and 30 times as much vitamin B-1 as milk, four times the iron in spinach, six times the vitamin C in an orange, and eighty milligrams of vitamin B12 per hundred grams!
Green Energy Booster #3: Spirulina
Spirulina is a blue-green algae that grows in both sea and fresh water. Like Wheatgrass and Barley Grass, Spirulina neutralizes acidity. The enzymes in Spirulina improve digestion and recharge your energy at the cellular level. Spirulina contains high levels of energy-boosting Vitamin B-12. It has 2300% more iron than spinach and 3900% more beta carotene than carrots! The iron in Spirulina is highly absorbable so your body can use it right away.
Green Energy Booster #4: Chlorella
Chlorella is the world’s richest source of chlorophyll. It contains more energy-boosting Vitamin B-12 than liver and very high levels of beta carotene. One study even concluded that it helps reduce anemia in pregnant women. In this study, a group of 70 women with anemia and pregnancy-induced hypertension (PIH) were given either 6 grams/daily of Chlorella or a placebo from the 12th week of gestation until delivery. Those receiving the Chlorella supplements demonstrated improvements in anemia in their second and third trimesters – as measured by hemoglobin levels.
The Best News: They’re Very Easy to Ingest!
These green super foods are available in flavored drinks and ready-made fruit smoothies. They are also available by themselves or in combination in tablets or powders that are delicious in milkshakes or fruit smoothies! So no more excuses—get maximum nutritional energy every day, starting today!
