Ever wonder why your mother would say things like … “sweet child of mine, eat your greens”! There is a myriad of research to support the benefits greens provide to our bodies. Just look at this graphic produced by the writers of Live Life Fruit.com as a quick reference for the major benefits of greens.
Here is the reality when it comes to greens. Health Canada recommends that we get a minimum of 2 servings of vegetables per day (preferably leafy green ones). Busy schedules, availability or seasonality of products and cost are factors that may prevent some from getting enough greens. A high-quality supplement may help bridge the gap when you just can’t get enough. If you fit into this category, ask your natural health practitioner for a supplement recommendation, or visit a natural health retailer.
