The Amazing Grass Green SuperFood blend is a unique and potent combination of nature’s most nourishing, cleansing and rebuilding green superfoods including organic wheat grass, barley grass, alfalfa, spirulina, spinach, chlorella and broccoli. The new formula has been bolstered to feature more than 70% certified organic ingredients and an enhanced digestive enzyme and active probiotic blend to improve nutrient absorption. Amazing Grass has also updated the powder drink mix by adding: SambazonÒ Acai - a purple berry loaded with antioxidants, healthy omega fats, fiber and protein that grows in the Amazon Rainforest; and maca - a nutritious root grown at high altitudes in Peru that is known to be an adaptogen that boosts the immune system and provides sustained energy, vitality and mental clarity.
Due to busy lifestyles and poor dietary habits, government nutrition experts estimate that only 9% of Americans consume the USDA’s recommended 5-to-9 daily servings of fruits and vegetables. Amazing Grass is a nutrition convenience pioneer that is making it easier (and tasty) to gain powerful whole food nutrition on-the-go with their new and improved Green SuperFood Drink Powder. To obtain healthy servings of fruits vegetables, consumers need to just mix one scoop of the lush green powder with 8 ounces or more of water, juices, smoothies, or other favorite beverages (see smoothie recipes below).
Green SuperFood Drink Powder provides more organic whole leaf greens per gram than any leading green superfood mix. It is low calorie and has no added sugar, so it lets people sweeten their beverage on their own or mix it with drinks that have some sweetener already. It is also vegan and gluten-free, and unlike many superfood drink powders, it contains no soy lecithin fillers. Green SuperFood Drink Powder is offered in a new economy size 60-serving canister, a 30-serving canister, a 15-count box of individual serving packets, and a jar of 150 veggie capsules. Also, there are Berry and Chocolate, using wholefood natural flavoring from cacoa berries.(Yum!)
Amazing Grass Green SuperFood powder has a high concentration of naturally-occurring enzymes, carotenoids, phytonutrients and antioxidants that work synergistically to fight free radicals, remove toxins and repair damaged cells. Ultimately, Amazing Grass contains every amino acid, vitamin, and mineral necessary to sustain human life. Since the human body is designed to get nutrition from whole foods, the body is able to efficiently and rapidly absorb the nutrients in Green SuperFood and quickly convert them to fuel.
For the majority of people, stress and consumption of unhealthy processed foods can create an acidic imbalance in the blood that, among other problems, can cause the body to store water and build up fat in the arteries (cholesterol) as protection from acidic blood. The rich chlorophyll content and high alkalinity of Amazing Grass Green SuperFood helps to combat acidity and restore blood to the optimal pH level. It also promotes improved circulation, digestion and regular elimination.
Amazing Grass is a friends and family-owned company with roots that date back over 60 years of growing and dehydrating green foods. The company produces certified organic wheat grass, barley grass, oat grass, rye grass and alfalfa at a family farm in Kansas, and markets the most nutritious, convenient and affordable green superfoods to help families thrive. Amazing Grass stands out because the grasses are field-grown throughout the winter allowing the roots to soak up nutrients from mineral-rich soil for over 6 months. “The young leaves are harvested just one time each year at their nutritional peak,” says President Brandon Bert. The greens are carefully flash dehydrated at low temperatures, frozen as whole leaf powders and then packed in nitrogen to maintain freshness. The extra steps ensure customers get the most nutrient-dense raw green food powders in the world.
Amazing Grass’ mission is to educate the world about the benefits of green superfoods and the improved quality of life from healthy eating habits. Amazing Grass now offers many convenient options to meet your nutritional needs at home and on the road. Organic Wheat Grass (powder or tablets), Green SuperFood Drink Powder (Original, Chocolate or Berry), Kidz SuperFood Drink Powder (Chocolate or Berry flavor), Amazing Meal (Original, Pom-Mango, Chocolate and new Chai Vanilla), Green Superfood Energy Bars (Original, Chocolate, Berry, Chocolate Peanutbutter) and New High Energy Green Superfood (Lemon-Lime).
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, yet millions of people walk out the door with a thermos of coffee and a full to-do list. Your body needs fuel to work properly. Your brain needs energy to think properly. Smoothies are a great way to get super nutrition in a tasty treat. They are quick to make and easy to share. What more could you want from a great breakfast?
Smoothies are good for you for many reasons, but two in particular. One: smoothies combine readily available nutrients in a liquid form. This means you get the nutrients you want in a highly digestible form, right away. Second: they are great healthy food on the go. Let’s face it, we need better food for a fast pace society. Before you go drop another 5 dollar bill on a starbucks -try creating your own smoothies and feel the super green food difference!
Keep a list of smoothie ingredients on hand so you can make the best tasting, most nutrient rich drinks. Try to keep these ingredients on hand all the time so you can substitute different fruits or juices to change the flavor depending on your mood. Keep it fresh and exciting.
Suggested list of items to keep handy: fruit or vegetable juice, almond milk, plain whole yogurt, flax seeds, a super green powder (Amazing Grass products are the best), coconut milk powder, protein powder (vanilla), flax seed oil, organic bananas, and berries.
You can start out with juice, yogurt, green food and the Coconut milk powder and work in the flax seeds, protein powder and other ingredients. Try adding vanilla protein powder and Coconut milk powder because they add more protein and omega 3 fatty acids, plus the coconut milk powder tastes really creamy and good! Ok, now that you have your basic ingredients on hand give these recipes a try.
