Let's face it- most of us don't eat enough leafy greens and fruits. Modern life in the fast lane makes it difficult to pack in all the nutrients your body needs to perform at its peak, but luckily BN Labs has your back.
Our new Organic Greens blend combines the superpowers of 15 potent ingredients to deliver a maximum amount of nutrients in one small powdered scoop. Our greens blend helps alkalize the body, encourages detoxification, and provides tons of essential vitamins and minerals to help get you through your daily hustle.
We sourced and selected each ingredient with the utmost care, so let's break down how all of them can help you:
1. Organic Wheatgrass
Wheat grass is rich in vitamins A,C, and E which help fight free radicals that cause aging and cellular damage. It's also an excellent source of fiber, which helps promote digestive health. In addition, it contains a high amount of chlorophyll, which has been shown to help improve circulation by boosting re blood cell count.
2. Organic Barley Grass
Barley grass is a natural source of sodium, which is needed by the lining of the stomach to produce hydrochloric acid, the key component for proper food digestion. It is also incredibly alkalizing and boasts a high content of vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, C, E, and folate.
3. Organic Alfafa Leaf
Alfalfa leaf has been used for thousands of years in traditional Chinese medicine for the treatment of ulcers and stimulating the appetite. Its extensive underground root system can reach lengths of 60 feet, allowing it to penetrate deep into the earth and absorb minerals not available in surface soil. It has also been known to aid in detoxification of the liver, and has been shown to help lower cholesterol.
4. Organic Broccoli
Most of us spit out our broccoli as kids, and some of us still do as adults… even though it’s rich in vitamins C, E, B6, iron, and folate. It’s also a rich natural source of vitamin K, which activates a protein that helps prevent calcium deposits in your arteries. Fear not though- our powder does not taste like the dreaded miniature trees you were forced to eat as a child.
5. Organic Turmeric
Turmeric has been used for thousands of years in traditional medicine for its powerful anti-inflammatory properties. Curcumin, the active compound found in turmeric, is a strong antioxidant that combats chronic and local inflammation by blocking NK-kB, a molecule that travels into the nuclei of your cells and turns on genes related to inflammation.
6. Organic Kale
Kale is not only high in gut-health boosting fiber, it contains a high dose of vitamins B and C, which help with iron absorption. It also contains a high amount of the flavonoids quercitin and kaempferol, which may have heart-protective and anti-inflammatory properties.
7. Organic Spirulina
Spirulina is one of the most nutritionally dense superfoods on the planet. It's harvested from algae and contains a high amount of protein and vitamins. It has also been shown to help protect LDL cholesterol from oxidative damage. It may also reduce blood pressure, improve symptoms of nasal rhinitis, and be effective against anemia through increasing hemoglobin content of red blood cells.
8. Organic Agave Inulin
Agave inulin is not only a clean, all-natural sweetener, it also is a great source of fiber and acts as a prebiotic, seeding the intestinal track with the fuel that healthy bacterial colonies need to thrive. Gut bacteria convert inulin into short-chain fatty acids, which provide nourishment to cells.
9. Organic Chlorella
Chlorella is another algae that's been getting quite a lot of buzz lately. The single-cell, nutrient-dense freshwater algae contains a high amount of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and omega-3 fats. It binds to heavy metals left behind in the system, which aids detoxing the body- particularly the liver, brain and kidneys. It's also been shown to have potent immune-boosting properties.
10. Organic Coconut Water
Coconut water is a great source of vitamins and fiber, but also has some unexpected health benefits. Research has shown that it may help lower blood sugar levels, reduce oxidative stress, and prevent the development of kidney stones by reducing crystal adhesion to the kidneys and urinary tract.
11. Organic Ginger
Ginger is a flowering plant that originated in China and has deep roots in ancient medicine. For centuries, it has been used as a way to reduce muscle pain and soreness, mitigate nausea (especially when due to morning sickness), treat chronic indigestion, enhance brain function, and may even have benefits for treating menstrual pain.
12. Organic Beet Root
Feeling short on stamina when you hit the gym? Beet root has been shown to increase plasma nitrate levels, which helps boost physical performance. It also contains nitrates which help increase blood flow to the brain, so it may be be an effective defense against dementia in older people.
13. Organic Sea Buckthorn Juice
Sea buckthorn contains parallel methanol, an extract that has been shown to decrease inflammatory cytokine levels in studies with mice. It may also help protect the liver, increase wound healing, and alleviate diabetes symptoms. It also has been shown to have antibacterial properties.
14. Organic Matcha Green Tea
Matcha is high in a catechin (an anti-oxidant rich plant compound) called EGCG, which is believed to have strong cancer-fighting properties. It has also been shown to be an effective aid for weight loss. Several studies have also shown that prolonged use (12 weeks or more) can significantly lower blood pressure.
15. Organic Ashwaganda Extract
Ashwaganda extract is a powerful stress-buster, and has been shown to reduce anxiety, aid with depression, and boost brain function. It lowers cortisol levels, the hormone responsible for stress. It has also been shown to increase virility in men, and can help reduce blood sugar levels.
