Super Greens are a great source of Fibre offering 1.7g of Fibre per 10g serving. On average, most people in the UK get about 18g of fibre a day. The NHS guidelines recommend aiming for at least 30g a day.
Greens can help to restore PH balance
The human body likes to maintain a balanced PH acid level, what you eat can affect this. Foods such as Grains, dairy and protein are acidic. Greens supplements are alkaline, which in turn helps the body’s acid-base balance. When the body is in a less acidic state it makes it more difficult for bacteria and viruses to grow. Super Greens are essential for anyone with a busy training schedule, when the body goes into an acidic state from intense exercise.
Timing is important when it comes to Super Greens & Exercise
Exercise promotes inflammation and oxidation in the body, which would lead you to believe taking Super Greens packed full of anti-oxidants straight after training where free radicals are present would be a good time to do so. Research shows in fact that consuming antioxidants after training can actually reduce the body’s ability to build muscle; this is because of Reactive oxygen species (ROS). ROS can help encourage the muscles to grow by increasing cell activity in the muscles that rebuild and repair tissue. We would recommend taking Super Greens throughout the day, and not after training for optimum results.
