When you hear superfoods, you may instantly associate it with an all-powerful, almost magical food. We can’t blame you, though. There isn’t any regulated definition of what could be considered a superfood, at least not yet. But perhaps it’s how we have seen their ability to offer high levels of vitamins and nutritional value that make them one. These nutrients are often linked to the prevention of disease or other health benefits such as antioxidation or immune system-boosting.
This is why, when it comes to green superfood, we often see it as a star-studded ensemble of veggies, mostly leafy greens considered to be superfoods. In fact, super green powder has been a growing trend in recent years, not only because of its benefits but also because of the convenience of it all. With the right superfood, you’ll be well on your way to having a strengthened immune system, and here’s why.
The immune system is a complex network of cells and proteins. Its main role is to defend the body against infection. Just like a digital database, it keeps a record of every single germ or microbe it has ever defeated so it can recognize and destroy the microbe quickly if it penetrates the body again. When the immune system is compromised or is functioning abnormally, it can lead to allergic diseases, immunodeficiencies, and autoimmune disorders.
Part of a healthy diet is the regular intake of the daily recommended vegetable serving. However, let’s be real: Whether it’s supply problem or just not having enough fondness for those greens, we all know that not everyone finds this veggie standard easy! That’s when green superfood powder steps in.
Green powders are dietary supplements designed
to help you reach your daily recommended vegetable intake to support your
body’s immunity, increase your energy levels, help in detoxification, and more.
They are usually made from greens, vegetables, seaweed, probiotics, digestive
enzymes, among others.
But here’s the catch. Not all super green products are as good as they are labeled to be.
