Leafy Greens: Why You Need & Want Them
Why we love some these fave greens foods & boosters:
Chlorophyll: known for its ability to decrease oxidative damage caused by factors like poor diet, chemicals, UV light exposure and radiation. Its antioxidant powers also support weight loss and promote healthy skin.
Chlorella: chlorella is a green algae superfood credited with immune-boosting, dementia protection, endurance support, and cancer-fighting properties. It also contains Vitamins B12 and C, protein, iron, antioxidants, fibre, important minerals, and Omega-3s. **Look for the intro of this power-booster in one of our new Spring blends!
Spinach: a mega nutrient-dense food, it has a healthy dose of antioxidants, folate, iron, Vitamins K, A, and C, as well as nutrients to support vigorous brain function, memory, and mental clarity.
