SUPERGREENS

Kat Hoyle Updated by Kat Hoyle

Supergreens was one of our first products that has been improved and refined over the years. We wanted to create a super convenient and tasty way to get a large % of the recommended daily amounts (RDA) of essential nutrients in one drink. Supergreens contains a lot of the nutrients that are not as readily obtained from food when following a vegetarian, vegan or plant-based diet. It does not contain absolutely everything, because some nutrients are not compatible with a powder format and we also want to encourage whole foods as the first port of call for nutrient sources.

Supergreens is a blend of whole fruit and vegetable powders, combined with a super nutrient charged buckwheat complex. This process involves harvesting buckwheat seeds, infusing them with a multi-nutrient complex before the seeds undergo a unique germination process, this process infuses the multi-nutrients into the buckwheat sprouts and finally the multi-nutrient rich buckwheat is dried into powder.

There are also lots of whole food ingredients contributing to Supergreens’ rich nutritional content including Acerola cherry one of the richest sources of vitamin c, broccoli, kale, spinach and carrot, algae, lion's mane mushroom, lacuma, baobob, blueberries, to name a few!

Supergreens also contains pro-biotics, 10 billion CFU in fact. CFU are the colony forming units, the bacteria that make it to the gut and can populate with healthy bacteria colonies, helping to support good digestive health.

Is Supergreens for you? Pretty much anyone and everyone can benefit from Supergreens. The nutrients included are particularly designed to benefit plant-based diets, however omnivorous diets can also lack in vital nutrients. If you feel you are lacking in fruit and veggie derived nutrients or want to add to your already veggie abundant diet, Supergreens is for you.

Let us take a look at the ingredients and the nutrients they provide. Most of the vitamins and minerals come from the Vganic multi-nutrient buckwheat blend, but the whole food fruit and vegetable ingredients also contribute towards the nutrient content, as well as the flavour!
