Greens Powder FAQ

Why use a greens powder?

There are far too many benefits to list, but in general the benefit is that most people do not eat enough vegetables and fruit, which means their body is overly acidic. This is the foundation for most disease.
A good greens powder can help to fill in that nutritional gap and provide your body with a flood of much needed alkalinity. The result is that you’ll feel so much more energized, have better mental clarity, your skin will look younger, and so much more!

When to take a greens powder?

It doesn’t matter so long as you just take it.

What does a greens powder taste like?

I’ll be honest: most greens powders taste like fresh-cut lawn or pond water.
That’s exactly why I developed my Energy Greens, which is the best-tasting and highest quality greens powder on the market. It has a delightful taste with a hint of cinnamon and vanilla that enhances the flavor (and smell) even further.

How much greens powder should I drink per day?

Let’s keep it simple and go with 1-2 tablespoons added to your water or a smoothie per day.

Does heating or cooking greens powder damage its antioxidant content?

Though the most potent way to enjoy your greens is in their raw, uncooked state, you’ll still get a hefty dose of nutrition by adding them to “heated” meals.
Adding greens to warmed or cooked foods boosts daily intake. So, if you have a hard time drinking them straight, I recommend adding them to other recipes. Eating greens—even heated greens powder—is always more beneficial than not eating greens at all.
