The Importance of Green Foods

GreensGreen foods, including leafy vegetables, grasses and algae – have always been a staple part of the human diet – and that of most mammals on earth. However many of us are eating less and less of these foods, and have often replaced our 'greens' to a great extent with processed foods and a higher dietary intake of sweet foods.

The benefits of green foods are manifold – and often include antioxidant compounds that are hard to source from other foods.

Most green foods are also a source of important vitamins, minerals, trace minerals and amino acids (the ‘building blocks’ of protein).

All green foods also provide the body with a very important plant pigment called chlorophyll and are often rich in enzymes – plant nutrients that are now understood to perform many important functions in the human body.

The simple proverb 'eat your greens' is therefore, like much folkloric wisdom - very good advice. We recommend that you eat more green foods in your diet - but this can be supplemented with Green Magma - the easy way to 'drink your greens' on a daily basis!
