What Makes Green Superfoods So Super?

Reading time 3 min.

The wellness industry has taken off at lightning speed. People are searching for ways to bring balance into their lives and promote healthful habits. Green superfoods have been promoted as a way to boost health and provide a nutritional punch to otherwise lacking diets. But do you know what superfoods are, or what exactly makes them so great? It turns out there isn’t one thing that makes them stand out.

A well-rounded diet sourced from whole foods is the best way to meet your nutritional needs. That is widely accepted by medical professionals and nutritionists. however, it isn’t a reality for many people. That is where supplements come in. However, they are not all of the same value. Superfoods can help answer the demand for supplementation by providing natural sources of nutrients.

What Are Superfoods?

Superfoods pack a high amount of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants into a small package. Supplements made from them are generally low in calories and minimally processed. That helps align with the idea that dietary needs be met form whole food sources. There are many different types of superfoods, including:

-Leafy greens, like spinach and chard

-Seaweed

-Berries

-Dark chocolate

-Various teas

Green superfoods, in particular, offer a way to add many vitamins and phytonutrients to your diet. Some examples of green superfoods include leafy greens, seaweed, spirulina, carrots and other vegetables. However, if you aren’t big ion eating your vegetables, a high-quality green superfood powder can provide them in a concentrated and easy to use form.

What Benefits Do They Offer?

Fruits and vegetables are known to boost health. They are low in calories, packed with fiber and offer a wide array of vitamins and minerals, They also provide essential nutrients like antioxidants to your diet. Experts recommend that you include up to 10 or more servings each day. Most people fall short of that goal, which results in nutritional deficiency. Green superfood supplements are a great way to make up for any shortfalls.

There are many reported health benefits associated with eating green superfoods. They provide huge amounts of vitamins A, C, E, and K, as well as a good variety of B vitamins. In addition, they are excellent sources of iron, potassium, carotenoids, calcium and magnesium. Each of these offers benefits to your health. It is their amazing antioxidant levels, however, where superfoods truly shine.

Antioxidants slow cellular damage by neutralizing free radicals and oxidative stress. There are numerous antioxidants, and each serves its own purpose. That means they are not interchangeable and you need to consume a wide assortment to maximize their benefits. Adequate levels are linked to lower rates of chronic inflammation, heart disease and some forms of cancer. Additionally, they may help reduce age-related disorders like arthritis and vision loss.

The vitamin boost from a greens supplement can give you added energy, despite its limited calorie count, making them an excellent option for people on reduced-calorie eating plans. They also help balance pH levels within your blood to combat inflammation and bolster immune responses.

What Ingredients Should You Look For?

Greens powders tend to be made from dehydrated vegetables. Not all supplements are made the same. Some may have added sweeteners to improve their flavor. You may also find fiber from sources like rice bran or apples. When shopping for powdered green superfoods, it can pay to look for products that include additional beneficial ingredients. A few examples of what you might find include:

Seaweed and algae, like phycocyanin-rich spirulina for their antioxidants

Leafy greens and grasses for their high vitamin profile

Probiotics to boost gut health

Digestive enzymes to ease digestion and promote nutrient absorption

Many powdered supplements are minimally processed. You will also probably find that most are made with ingredients that are listed as all-natural or organic. That means you are getting high doses of vitamins and nutrients without added chemicals.

Green superfood supplements are an excellent addition to a diet that is lacking in certain nutrients. They offer a healthy way to get a wide array of nutrients with only a minimal addition of calories. Those nutrients are linked to myriad health benefits like improved energy levels, stronger immune systems, and reduced incidence of disease.
