Greens are a rich source of minerals (including iron, calcium, potassium, and magnesium) and vitamins, including vitamins K, C, E, and many of the B vitamins.

They also provide a variety of phytonutrients including beta-carotene, lutein, and zeaxanthin, which protect our cells from damage and our eyes from age-related problems, among many other health effects.

Greens have a very small amount of carbohydrate in them, the small amount it contains are packed in layers of fiber, which make them very slow to digest. Therefore greens have very little impact on blood glucose levels.

The best way to get enough greens into your body is by Cold Pressed Juicing, Green Smoothes and having a big green Salad daily.
