Super greens are a unique kind of superfood that includes a selection of grains, vegetables, grasses, and algae. They're naturally rich in vitamins, fiber, minerals, antioxidants, and phytonutrients. They are available in powder, juice, and tablet form.
Besides helping you achieve recommended minerals and vitamins intake, super greens have a lot of advantages. Some super green plants include oat grass, broccoli, chlorella, barley grass, kales, and more. Below are the health benefits of super greens.

1. Healthier immune system

Your diet plays a key role in maintaining a healthy immune system. Since super greens contain high levels of minerals and vitamins, such as vitamin C and vitamin E. Consuming them will help you get all the nutrients you need to boost your immune system.

2. Healthy blood pressure

Green powders rich in minerals like potassium and calcium are good for blood pressure management.  The high magnesium concentration in drinks made from green powders improves blood flow, maintains pressure levels, and lowers the risk of heart disease.

Super greens are also high in iron, giving you healthy blood cells and ensuring oxygen flow in your body. Insufficient iron in the body causes anemia, leading to fewer blood cells and negatively impacting blood pressure.

3. Weight loss

Super greens are ideal for weight loss because they help you manage and control your calorie intake without trading off nutrients. If you choose to consume them in powder form, add them to soups, salads, or smoothies, but be careful not to add them to foods that require heating as some nutrients may be lost. The super green drinks will help suppress your appetite and manage cravings, making you eat less.

Since other super green powders contain fiber, you remain fuller for longer, ending up eating less. Considering that plant proteins aim at losing fat and building muscle, consuming protein-rich super greens will help you build and maintain lean muscle.

4. Natural energy boosters

Considering how busy and fast-paced lives have become, many people rely on caffeine, energy drinks, and sugary foods to fuel their lives, negatively impacting their health in the long run. Since super greens are natural energy boosters and adding a spoonful to your morning smoothie will naturally boost your energy levels, keeping you energized throughout the day.

5. A great source of phytonutrients

Also known as flavonoids or phytochemicals, phytonutrients have antioxidant and inflammatory properties that are beneficial for human health. Some of these phytonutrients include beta-carotene, which are beneficial for the immune system, along with your vision, skin and bone health. Lycopene can help prevent specific cancers such as prostate cancer and also improves your heart rate. Lutein prevents cancer and boosts heart and eye health. Anthocyanins maintain blood vessel health, while isoflavones protect against breast cancer, improve your joint and bone health, and lower cholesterol.

Endnote

Although super greens are packed with nutrients and minerals, don't use them as a replacement for food but rather as a nutrient supplement. Consider leveraging these greens to enjoy the health benefits above.
