Juicing is not just a trend. In fact, juicers, juice brands, kiosks, franchises and services are bigger than ever!
Why is juice so hot? Because it’s an easy way to get concentrated, readily available vitamin, mineral and phytonutrients from clean plant foods! Phytonutrients, also known as phytochemicals, are the nutrients in fruits and veggies, responsible for the colour, smell and flavour of your favourite plant foods – including fresh juice.
But juicing isn’t necessarily the magic bullet for glowing health some believe it to be as a daily habit. Lisa Kilgour, Registered Holistic Nutritionist states that “Due to its high level of nutrients, juicing can be very helpful when dealing with an acute or chronic illness, but I don’t recommend it every day. It’s no longer a whole food (lacking fibre) and this may not be the best thing for a healthy body”. Critics of everyday juicing cite potential issues such as blood sugar spiking, tooth enamel damage, and disruption of the digestive process. But perhaps the most problematic issue with juice is that the incredible nutritional components that make juice so appealing are extremely vulnerable to oxygen, light and heat, and degrade quite quickly after the juice is extracted from fruits and vegetables.
But there is something to be said about the convenience factor of a glass jam-packed with plant nutrients (unless you have a pulp-packed juicer filter to contend with… that’s another story). Kilgour agrees in giving the body highly accessible nutritional support: “That’s why on a day-to-day basis I recommend using a whole food supplement that contains whole grasses, algae, and other foods and herbs not found in our everyday diet” she states.
This is exactly why greens+ was formulated – for an easy way that people could get important, potent phytonutrients into their everyday life.
Knowing that juice is vulnerable to breakdown and oxidation, we wanted to ensure that the greens+ formula wasn’t exposed to the same fate. We tested the phytonutrient content of greens+ to see exactly how potent its nutrition was, and then and tested to ensure that its phytonutrients and antioxidant activity was not only intact and stable in the finished product, but also active in the body after consumption. Research has proven that these fantastic phytonutrients are active in your body, having been proven to elevate blood antioxidant status.
Not only that, we tested the phytonutrient content of greens+ against competitive products and other foods, commonly found in smoothies and juices, and found that the levels were higher in greens+!
So, consider bypassing the pricey juice kiosk, instead adding greens+ to your daily health regimen. It is portable, easy to use (just add water, shake and go!) and it has been proven to provide a super-rich concentration of phytonutrients, pH balancing and energy boosting elements!
This one of a kind phytonutrient formula protects and balances your body, and most importantly, makes you feel amazing, no pulp-filter cleaning required!
