We drink a green’s drink everyday.  There are numerous benefits to drinking a greens drink which I will discuss below.  I have tried many different types of greens drinks and the brand that I recommend is Greens First (www.greensfirst.com).  It is by far the best tasting product.  It’s sweetened with stevia and has a slight minty flavor.  It is also the most cost effective and it has an amazing nutrition profile.  I mix the powder with a glass of cold water in the morning and it makes me feel refreshed and energetic throughout the day.

The following information is taken directly from the Greens First website.

The USDA announced that Americans need to eat approximately 50 % more vegetables, 150% more fruits, 250% more orange vegetables and 350% more green vegetables every day! That’s a recommendation of 7 to 13 servings per day to improve health and prevent chronic disease. But, with today’s busy lifestyles and fast food eating habits, few American adults, and far fewer children, even eat the recommended minimum of 5-A-Day!

Acid and Alkaline Balance

Our body has a natural acid/alkaline balance. The Standard American Diet (S.A.D.) of sugars, fast food, stress, medications and lack of exercise can all contribute to make the body more acidic. Research indicates that yeast, bacteria, viruses and cancer thrive in an acid environment. And conversely, when the body is alkaline foreign bacteria, viruses, yeast and cancer cannot live.

Our body has a natural balance called homeostasis. When we are too acidic, minerals like calcium are leached from our bones to help alkalize the body. Another way our body tries to protect us from acid is to buffer it with fat and store it in the body. Luckily, there are ways to naturally boost your PH which should stay between 7.35 and 7.45. That’s where Greens First will help you on your journey to increased health and vitality!

GET THE BENEFIT OF POUNDS OF FRUITS, VEGETABLES & HERBS IN EVERY SCOOP!

It’s good to eat your fruits and vegetables, but drinking them is even better!  When you stir Greens First powder into pure, cold water, it’s not only delicious, refreshing and energizing, you are helping yourself to maintain a highly alkaline body, which is essential for optimum health and well-being.

Greens First provides naturally occurring and easily absorbed vitamins, minerals and macronutrients. Another important nutrient that Greens First delivers is chlorophyll, which is the substance that helps plants absorb light and make them look green. The molecular structure of chlorophyll is very similar to that of hemoglobin which is the substance of your red blood cells that helps them transport oxygen. Chlorophyll helps your blood deliver oxygen throughout the body which in turn helps to make stronger body cells and stronger blood.

Fill The Gap Between What You Eat & What You Should Eat!
With today’s busy lifestyles and fast food diets, you can’t always get the recommended 7-13 servings of fruits and vegetables every day.  Plus, reports indicate that the nutritional quality of food has dropped considerably in the past 10-20 years as soils are depleted and lacking in essential minerals, vitamins and trace nutrients.  Many foods are processed and in a box that robs them of more of their remaining nutritional value.  And foods that are cooked lose still more nutrients.
