It’s no secret fruits and vegetables are good for you. Parents peddle greens to their kids from an early age and the government has been recommending 5 portions of fruits and vegetables for as long as I can remember.

But here’s the thing. Depending on where you live in the world, there are different recommendations. In the USA it’s now up to 10 servings per day.

There’s also a problem with this recommendation.

It shouldn’t be a recommended daily amount. It should be a VITAL daily amount. They really don’t spell it out clearly enough.

It boils down to this: You should eat a mainly plant based diet and have a wide variety of fruits and vegetables if you want to live a long and healthy life.

Some plant based foods are called ‘superfoods’ because they’re especially high in certain nutrients, or have highly beneficial effects on the human body.

Broccoli Sprouts, Kelp, Barley Greens, Spirulina, Strawberries, Blueberries, Lemon, Ginger, Turmeric and Beetroot come to mind immediately.

In his book “How Not To Die” Dr Michael Greger talks through the 15 leading causes of death and how to eat to avoid them. It’s well worth a read and the main takeaway is nature provides preventions and cures to serious disease within fruits and vegetables.

Let’s have a look at the Green’s Boost ingredients and why we’ve put them in there. (They’re all superfoods, just the ones that are more difficult to buy from the supermarket) :-

Barley Grass:

This simple grass packs a powerful punch. It helps rid bones of calcium deposits, contains 7 times more Vitamin C than orange juice and is a powerful antioxidant. (Reduces signs of aging)

Amongst other things, Chlorella helps you in the fight against disease. It’s a natural detoxifier of heavy metals. If you eat fish regularly, eat products or food made in China, have metal fillings or have been vaccinated then Chlorella will help you get rid of heavy metals such as mercury.

This potent green also boosts your ‘Natural Killer’ cells – boosting your immune system.

It also helps prevent bone loss as you age.

Summary:

As you can see, our Green’s Boost packs an extremely powerful punch. Who wouldn’t want all of that on a daily basis? The only question we’re regularly asked, is what does it taste like?

Good news. Green’s Boost is a really fine powder. It comes with a measuring spoon, and the amount you use is approximately ½ level teaspoon. Simply mix it in a small amount of water and drink it. The aroma is one of faint seaweed but the taste is fairly neutral.
