Green SuperFood

amazing grass green superfood
I discovered Amazing Grass Green SuperFood powder at Whole Foods a year or so ago when they were giving it out in little cups as a free sample. More specifically, the sample was a mixture of green superfood powder with some apple juice, which I thought was a pretty decent combination tastewise.

The low down on all-organic green superfood is that one serving has the antioxidant equivalent to seven servings of fruits and vegetables. Inside of each serving is a blend of four powders: (1) Green Foods (things like grass, alfalfa, spinach), (2) Antioxidants (acai, carrot, beet, green tea), (3) Fiber (flax seed powder, apple pectin fiber), and (4) Digestive Enzymes & Probiotics (acidophilus , chicory root). These blends contribute to a packet of green powder that has 100% of your daily vitamin A (great for your skin), 40% of your daily vitamin C, 50% of your vitamin K, as well as large amounts of other vitamins as well. On top of being really healthy, I find that combining one of these packets with a cup of water (I use water instead of apple juice to save on my calories), gives me a little boost of energy during the late afternoon when I'm feeling a bit lethargic. It also makes me feel like I'm drinking something smart and healthy.

I buy single serving packets of Green Superfood and I keep the packets in my desk at work. Each serving is 30 calories, 1 gram of fat, and 2 grams of fiber (so 0 weight watchers points). I think it tastes pretty good but I'm open to grassy tasting foods. I can say (if it helps you judge) that in comparison to wheat grass, this stuff is really good.

Enjoy!

This product sounds great for people and I can imagine by the sounds of it will be very useful to many in our society who could use that extra boost of nutrition.

These products are coming out more and more because of their great and undeniable effects. Thanks for introducing this one.

I guess you can detox with this Green Super Food for several days, taking it, organic IMAGINE Buttnernut Squash (cream) or Tomato (cream) soup, and V8. Several days of just those three things and you will detox your body and lose weight safely and quickly. I start tomorrow. Got this advice from a chiropractor.

Flax, one of the ingredients in this product, interferes with the absorption of vitamins and antioxidants. Flax should be taken away from nutrients and antioxidants.
