Greens powder is one of the fastest-growing supplements in the fitness world and has become a popular way to help people reach their daily recommended intake of vitamins and minerals.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), only 5% of American adults consume the recommended servings of fruits and vegetables. This is where a green powder supplement can be perfect for those who struggle with their fruit and vegetable intake, by providing all the benefits in just one convenient scoop.

The formulation process of a greens supplement varies by brand, but generally the ingredients used are dried and then ground into powder or certain whole food components are extracted. Alternatively, some ingredients are juiced and dehydrated.

Like any nutritional supplement, a greens powder should be taken in conjunction with a well-balanced healthy diet. It can be of particular benefit in boosting nutrient intake on the days where you may not be meeting your set requirements or if you really struggle to meet your 5 servings of vegetables a day, which let’s be honest, isn’t always easy. At the end of the day, everyone can benefit from an additional boost of greens!
