Microgreen Powders, Greens Powder, Capsules, Fruit and vegetable intake is critical to meet our vitamin and mineral needs for our body. However, we do as we do and only one in ten Americans meet the daily recommended servings for fruits and vegetables. (SHOCKER) While it’s best to consume real, whole foods, powders are a great way to boost nutrient intake if someone doesn’t like fruits and veg or if they are in an area with limited access, or if they need to consume greens in a more secret way. Greens powder does contain several of the same health-promoting properties as fresh fruits and vegetables, such as antioxidants, vitamins, and polyphenols.
What to look for
People take greens powders for different reasons. Regardless of your motivations, paying attention to the ingredients and nutrition label before buying (at least anyone else powders). Some greens will have higher fiber content, while others provide a variety of antioxidants.Vitality Farms Company is not a doctor we definitely have no desire for that but we are some learned peeps. Meaning we have a a copy off every microgreen study that has been performed and we had an understanding of certain known benefits of specific crops. We can customize a blend for you. If you are looking for overall general health improvements we recommend the Vitality Blend
Another important thing to note, some greens powders are designed to help you get all of your vegetable servings into your diet, others have additives such as protein or probiotics, a mixture of microgreens and full vegetables. If your diet is lacking these supplements, finding a greens powder that contains additional health benefits is a good option.
WATCH OUT/ BEWARE
Some powders contain high amounts of sugar ( We add nothing to our products). All of our crops come from the highest quality seeds we can locate and organic if available and all we add the most plant friendly water available. Always try and look for powders with little to no added sugars and avoid any products with artificial sweeteners, with the exception of stevia or monk fruit.
It may seem like it’s a lot ,and there are a lot more factors I haven’t mentioned yet. I started this process to keep my business profitable, but that was about 18 months ago and I have learned how to ask better questions, do better testing and really understand all the a lot more about the pros and cons. I even wrote a book about making seasonings, I sell it here but anyone can take what they learn from that book and expand it into the most amazing of places.
Eat them How?
I suggest blending the powder into a smoothie for optimal taste and consistency. Add a source of healthy fat, such as nut butter, chia seeds, or avocado, to your smoothie to help absorb the fat-soluble vitamins in the powder.
The Obvious…..Always speak with a healthcare professional before adding a supplement to your routine to ensure that the supplement is appropriate for your individual needs and which dosage to take. There is no established RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance) for microgreens powders (Another way you can spot people who really are very aware of what is up.) However, there are RDAs for the vitamins and minerals that they contain. Take a look at the nutrition label and the percent daily value of the vitamins and minerals and assess how the powder might fit into your diet. It is important to remember that any dosage of powders should be supplemental and not take the place of whole plants in your diet. Also they way that the company creates this shelf stable product can completely transform the nutritional label.
