When it comes to greens is fresh always best? Or, can you get what you need from green powdered supplements?

Drinking your greens is still a major health trend that’s still going strong. In fact, it’s rising in popularity.

I’m all about drinking greens in smoothies and in juices. And while green juices always taste better than their smoothie counterpart, (they go down smoother) a lot of nutrients get lost in the juicing process.

So what about green powders? Is fresh always best? They basic answer is that while you get benefits from zapping fresh green you’ll get even more benefits from them in powder form.

Why? Simply because these powders offer a nutrient-dense, ingredients list you couldn’t possible whip up on your own.

Powders come in varying forms and are ground into a fine powder, making them easy to digest. They can be added to water, juices or smoothies. The ingredient lists are usually long and impressive and include other vegetables and grains such as wheatgrass, spinach, broccoli as well as aquatic plants and algae like kelp, spirulina and chlorella and probiotics and enzymes.

Most high-quality green powders, like The Super Elixir Powder by WelleCo and supermodel Elle Macpherson, the one I currently use, can offer more than 75 of the vital nutrients our body needs every day. They can help optimize health and help keep your body alkaline.

The trick to getting the benefits of your greens in concentrated form is to consume them on a regular basis. Many experts agree that they shouldn’t be a replacement for food, but rather taken to enhance your nutrient profile.

And, last but not least, read the ingredients list and make sure the brand you choose produces high-quality products.
