We all want to eat a healthy diet, but consuming enough leafy green vegetables is hard.
To be honest, most vegetables don’t taste good, they can be hard to prepare, and they often spoil before you can eat them.
Even if you eat vegetables daily, most people still don’t consume enough to get all the nutrients they need. Only one in 10 adults meet the federal recommendations to eat 2 to 3 cups of vegetables per day as a part of a healthy diet, according to the Centers for Disease Control.
I know I don’t eat enough vegetables, so that’s why I started using a greens powder several years ago. I wanted to get all the greens supplement benefits, but the powders all tasted like dirt.
It didn’t matter how many I tried. They all tasted like dirt.
After eating the equivalent of a dump truck’s worth of dirt, my team and I decided to create the first great-tasting GREENS supplement. And since in my perfect world, veggies taste like dessert, we created LadyBoss® GREENS, which uses the science of its powerful ingredient list to give you an apple pie-flavored dose of daily greens.
One scoop is the antioxidant equivalent of EIGHT full servings of fruits and vegetables. That’s…
- 32 grapes
- 1 bell pepper
- 1 large apple
- 1 cup of cauliflower
- 12 carrots
- 2 cups of kale
- 2 cups of spinach.
GREENS was formulated especially for women, and every ingredient was selected based on scientific research and study to:
- Combat free radicals
- Support immune function
- Enhance energy
- Support weight loss
- Help reduce the effects of oxidative stress.
Now, I know you’re wondering what exactly is in LadyBoss® GREENS and whether you can even pronounce most of the ingredients.
The answer is yes. The ingredients list is long, but it’s clear what health benefits these superfood ingredients provide. LadyBoss® GREENS combines three proprietary super blends: antioxidants, greens, and immunity. Let’s break down the science behind each super blend:
Proprietary Antioxidant SuperBlend
Organic Acai Fruit Powder: Promotes healthy muscle recovery following exercise, supports healthy cholesterol levels, reduces oxidative stress in the body, and combats the damage caused by free radicals. Acai contains polyphenols, which are well established for their demonstrated antioxidant capacity.
Organic Peppermint Leaf Powder: Calms and soothes the digestive system to promote a healthy gastrointestinal tract.
Organic Cranberry Fruit Powder, Organic Strawberry Fruit Powder, Organic Blackberry Fruit Powder, Organic Raspberry Fruit Powder, Organic Blueberry Fruit Powder, Cucumber Fruit Powder: Cranberry, Strawberry, Blackberry, Raspberry, Blueberry, and Cucumber work together to create an anti-oxidizing force for your body. Cranberry supports a healthy urinary tract. Strawberry is high in flavonoids and phenolic acid to inhibit the production of free radicals. Blackberry promotes healthy aging through reduced effects from superoxide radicals and they are rich in potassium. Raspberry helps boost metabolism and support healthy cells. Blueberry contains six anthocyanin compounds to support brain and heart health Cucumber supports healthy red blood cells.
Grape Seed Extract: Helps combat the production of damaging free radicals and helps support blood flow specifically for women.
Proprietary Greens SuperBlend
Organic Wheat Grass Powder: Helps combat the effects of extrinsic aging and promotes a healthy inflammatory response in the body. In addition to Vitamins E, A, C, and bioflavonoids, wheatgrass is filled with iron, phosphorous, magnesium, manganese, zinc, and dietary fiber.
Organic Kale Leaf Powder: Contains the biological components that help maintain healthy heart function, bone strength, and hormone production. It also promotes gut health via microbiome diversity due to prebiotic content.
Organic Barley Grass Powder, Organic Spinach Leaf Powder, Parsley Leaf Powder, Organic Cauliflower Powder, Organic Broccoli Powder: Barley Grass, Spinach Leaf, Stevia Leaf, Cauliflower, and Broccoli combine to create an excellent detoxifying effect for your body. Barley grass helps support healthy cholesterol levels to promote heart health through beta gluten and super oxidase dismutase. Spinach leaf supports eye health along with memory and cognitive performance through lutein, zeaxanthin, and beta-carotene. Stevia leaf helps support a healthy inflammatory response. Cauliflower and broccoli contain the biological components that help maintain healthy heart function, bone strength, and hormone production.
Proprietary Immunity SuperBlend
Spirulina Powder: Spirulina is a potent superfood shown to promote healthy heart function specifically for women by helping support total cholesterol levels through physocyanobilin. Physocyanobilin is an inhibitor of NADPH oxidase, a catalyst in the process responsible for the production of free radicals.
Cinnamon Bark Powder: Cinnamon Bark Powder decreases the absorption rate of sugars after a meal, which helps support healthy glucose levels.
Chlorella (cracked cell): Helps detox your body by removing harmful heavy metals. Chlorella also helps support immune system function.
Turmeric (root) Extract: This superfood helps relieve pain through its levels of curcumin. Also, turmeric promotes heart health by supporting healthy cholesterol levels. It also has shown heart health benefits for postmenopausal women.
Organic Moringa Leaf Powder: Promotes heart health through antioxidant means to support healthy cholesterol levels. Moringa binds directly to bile acids to support healthy cholesterol levels through inhibited absorption.
Milk Thistle Seed Extract: Supports the body’s natural detoxification system by promoting healthy liver function. Milk thistle enhances cellular protein synthesis and, subsequently, healthy liver function, which bolsters the body’s own natural detoxification system.
Mangosteen Pericarp: Helps decrease the damage from oxidative stress, specifically relating to the health of the skin and bones.
Patented SPECTRA ORAC Blend: This patented, full-spectrum blend of fruit, vegetable, and herb extracts is uniquely designed to combat potentially-damaging free radicals (unstable molecules in the body that alter the composition of other molecules to stabilize, which impacts cellular health). SPECTRA ORAC increases cellular oxygen consumption, which reduces or prevents the effects of oxidative stress.
A Closer Look
One of the powerful ingredients in LadyBoss® GREENS is spirulina, a blue-green alga used as a dietary supplement for astronauts on space missions. Studies have shown spirulina health benefits include the ability to help modulate immune functions and fight inflammation. And, high in phytonutrients, spirulina is also an anti-inflammatory as well as an anticarcinogenic.
But spirulina wasn’t cooked up in a NASA lab. It’s one of the Earth’s oldest life forms and likely was eaten centuries ago by both African natives and the Aztecs.
Now you and the people in your life whom you care about can get those same health benefits by drinking the best-tasting green superfoods powder every day.
You can mix LadyBoss® GREENS into your daily shake, or drink it mixed with water or your favorite beverage.
There isn’t one best time to drink greens powder. You can have it any time or several times each day to help make sure you get your daily nutritional requirement of fruits and vegetables.
