There’s a reason why you’ve heard the words ‘leafy greens’ so many times: because they’re so good for you! But spinach, bok choy, and rocket aren’t the only greens you can munch on.Green ‘super-foods’ are a concentrated source of many phyto-nutrients: chlorophyll, protein, vitamins, trace elements, minerals, and essential fatty acids. They are ideal for vegetarians and vegans as a rich plant source of protein, for those following a detox regimen or juice fast, or if you’re looking for a natural easily digested supplement.
We’ve just added Synergy Natural’s range of spirulina, chlorella, wheat and barley grasses to the store (in both powder and tablet form). Synergy Natural is an Australian-based company specialising in organic green foods – they’ve been going strong for almost 20 years trying to ‘bring quality and good health to everyone’.
Synergy’s green foods are easy to take and can be mixed with food or juices and smoothies. Try Synergy’s recipe for an energy-packed green smoothie: blend 1 cup of your favourite juice (orange, apple, pineapple,…) with 1 ripe banana and 1 teaspoon or more of Spirulina Organic Powder. Ideal at breakfast for an early morning kick!
