Drink Your Veggies with It Works Greens — All the Nutrients of 38 Cancer-Fighting Fruits and Vegetables
How Many Servings?
Nutritionists recommend 5-9 servings of fruits and vegetables per day. Seriously? I don’t know about you, but I’m doing well to grab a banana for breakfast and squeeze in a salad at some point during the day. I figure that brings me up to 3-4 servings, still well below what doctors say I should be eating for optimal health. I am well aware of the many benefits of eating fruits and vegetables: reduced risk of cancer, heart disease, diabetes, stroke. Plus they’re naturally low in calories, fat and sodium. But seriously, how does a busy mom find the time to consume up to 9 servings a day??
Enter It Works Greens!
It Works Greens is a natural alkalizing drink powder made of 38 different vegetables, fruits and herbs. Just one scoop meets the recommended dose, delivering 8 servings of nutritional fruits and veggies! Alkalizing means it helps your body naturally balance acidity with minerals like magnesium and potassium for a healthy pH balance to help fight free radicals and ward off illness and disease.
Drink Your Greens Instead of Coffee
It Works Greens has become my go-to beverage of choice every day, anytime of day. I love this stuff! Every morning I start my day with It Works Greens instead of coffee. It is so packed with energizing anti-oxidants I don’t even need the caffeine stimulant to get pumped and ready for the day. I like to add a scoop of Greens – Orange to a few ounces of orange juice mixed with sparkling water. (OJ is high in natural sugar, so the sparkling water not only adds pizazz, it helps cut the calories.) Then in the afternoon I’ll usually do the same thing with a scoop of Berry Greens so I can have a delicious, invigorating afternoon pick-me-up—a much healthier choice than a sugar-filled soda!
Add Greens to Smoothies
If you’re a smoothie junkie, It Works Greens is the perfect supplement and doesn’t give that tongue-coating after taste many off-the-shelf powders leave behind. Plus, it delivers a much wider variety of healthful cancer-fighting foods than most people will have on hand, including ingredients from apples, barley, brown rice, beets, broccoli, blackberry, blueberry, cranberry, kale, spinach, tomato, even okra!
There is so much research indicating the benefits of a diet high in fruits and vegetables because of all the vitamins, minerals and fiber they deliver. Since I have added It Works Greens to my daily diet, I have noticed I feel more energized throughout the day with no afternoon slump. But don’t enjoy a glass before bed! This natural immune booster is so packed with superior-quality vitamins and minerals the energizing effects will keep you awake. In fact, it is recommended not to consume Greens 3-4 hours before bedtime.
The Power of Probiotics
It Works Greens also contains powerful probiotics, including LactoSpore®. These are the healthy bacteria found in yogurt that your digestive system needs to fight off unhealthy bacteria that can cause digestive issues as well as disease, such as colon cancer. A healthy digestive tract is critical to help your body absorb and process nutrients while eliminating toxins and waste. Few, if any, other supplements on the market deliver this powerful combination of vitamins, minerals, fiber, probiotics, antioxidants and nutrients in one delicious scoop!
