Greens powders or 'super greens' are generally an all-natural dietary supplement made up of a wide variety of different fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices that are dried, ground and powdered.
As the name would suggest - greens powder is typically green in colour, coming from a high proportion of green ingredients such as barley grass, wheat grass, spinach, kale, spirulina, chlorella, kelp, broccoli and green tea (or matcha).
Green's aren't the only thing you'll find in most greens powder, they typically include anything from 20 to 80 different ingredients, ranging from fruits, vegetables, grasses and seaweeds right through to herbs, mushrooms, protein, probiotics and enzymes!
Super greens powder supplements have become extremely popular recently as they are easy to stir through juices and smoothies to deliver a huge nutritional boost to your diet. By adding in everything from vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids through to antioxidants, enzymes and probiotics - greens powder can provide many health benefits such as:
Increased energy levels
Digestive system issues
Better liver function
Boosting the immune system
Reducing free radicals
Being so heavy on the green's means the flavour of these powders can be a bit 'grassy'. Many manufacturers add in natural sweeteners such as stevia or monk fruit to combat this - but when stirred through a nice juice or smoothie, you'll barely notice it anyway.
