Superfood Blend Benefits
It’s Packed With Protein
Greens can be a natural source of protein. Myvegan Green Superfood Blend contains spirulina, an algae source that has held its place in the superfood market for over 20 years and rightly so; it is made up of around 60-70% protein and is also a complete protein.2 Spirulina is also an easy to digest protein so can be easily absorbed and utilised throughout the body.
It’s A Great Source Of Iron
Greens can be a natural source of iron. Dark leafy vegetables such as kale, broccoli and spinach are important to include in a plant-based diet due to their higher iron content. Spirulina and wheatgrass are also good sources of iron. Low levels of iron are linked with increased fatigue and poor wound healing.
It’s Nutritious & Delicious
It may sound obvious, but one of the benefits to using a green blend, is that the blend contains a variety of different nutrients. Foods high in flavonoids and anti-oxidants have independently been shown to have a beneficial effect on blood pressure, which may help to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.3,4,5 It The natural extracts found in Myvegan Green Superfood Blend all contain flavonoids and anti-oxidants, as well as other nutritional benefits.
It’s Great For Skin Health
Greens powders may help to improve skin health. Vitamin C contains anti-oxidant properties that help to fight free radical damage.6 This is especially important when it comes to skin health, as pollution, stress and sun exposure can all cause damage to our skin. In recent years, skincare products have started to incorporate Vitamin C into topical products however, it is important to have a dietary intake of Vitamin C as well.
It May Help Support Immunity
Greens powders may help to support immunity. Immunity is a complex process which is carried out throughout the entire body. Foods high in anti-oxidants, vitamin C, and vitamin D can all help to support immunity. Wheatgrass contains probiotic properties, whilst spirulina has a variety of different immune-boosting properties.7 Myvegan Green Superfood Blend contains added Vitamin C and D, which can help to improve immunity.
It Maintains Your Energy
Greens powders can help to maintain energy levels. Low levels of Vitamin D can cause tiredness and fatigue. The majority of our Vitamin D comes from sunlight however, due to shorter days in Winter, it is recommend that everyone in the UK supplements with Vitamin D from October to March.8 Myvegan Green Superfood Blend contains added vitamin D to help combat fatigue.
It Supports Your Overall Wellness
Greens powders may help to support natural thyroid function. The thyroid gland is essential for normal functioning of metabolism, energy levels and cognition. Thyroid hormones require iodine in order to function correctly; low iodine levels have been linked to symptoms such as ‘brain fog’, fatigue, and low mood.9 Iodine can be difficult to obtain on a plant-based diet however, Myvegan Green Superfood contains added iodine, which can contribute towards your daily intake.
