Super energy within one minute with Green Juice

Are you already familiar with “green powder juices”? Normally I choose, depending on my energy level, for a specific nutritional supplement or a combination of several. Sometimes in the form of capsules, such as the Ashwaganda, or in tablets with, for example, Spirulina, but I also sometimes have wheatgrass or powdered algae, not really tasty but for a good cause say….

I had already tried a test bag from the Green Juice, but to really feel the effect Super Foodies allowed me to test a large pot of their Green Juice , good for 1 month of health! So all other food supplements on the side and I am ready!

What is Green Juice?

Green Juice is a superfoods-based green powder that you can easily make into a drink. It consists of 100% organic ingredients including herbs, algae and vegetables.

The unique thing about Green Juice is that it contains a few ingredients that you don’t often find in other supplements, such as the Ashwagandha and Moringa.

Ashwagandha and Moringa have long been used in ancient Ayurvedic medicine in India. They have a long list of customs and benefits you could almost choose any kind of ailment and they could probably help with that.

The Green Juice from Super Foodie also contains Matcha, which you often find nowadays as tea, totally hip and healthy.
Matcha has many health benefits, not the least of which is that it can help speed up your metabolism / metabolism without making you feel like you’ve been drinking some strong espresso shots.

Taste of Green Juice

The Green Juice tastes somewhat ” green ” if you understand what I mean. I simply make it as standard with some water in a small glass, stir quickly and clock in. If you want to spice up the taste, you can stir it with some juice or a smoothie. But it is also very good to combine with a yoghurt breakfast where you can add banana and raisins for a slightly sweeter taste.

My experience

I really enjoyed it, no more assortment of jars on the counter but just 1 scoop in the morning through my water and ready! The convenience is therefore a big plus and the feeling to start the day right feels good. The taste is easy to do and it gives me the reassuring feeling that on less healthy days I also get enough greens not to relax. For my children, I stir it in a juice to make it a little more attractive😉

I used it a little short to form an opinion in the long term so after the summer I will give an update! I certainly take the pot on holiday to start every day well.

Why Brazil nuts are good for your health

The Brazil nut is a real superfood. You often find the nut in nut mixes, but you can also buy them separately. Brazil nuts are often underestimated, but are very healthy and bring many health benefits!

Where does the Brazil nut come from?
The Brazil nut grows on a tree called Bertholletia excelsa. The tree is mainly found in tropical rain forests and mainly along the banks of the Amazon. The tree needs a lot of water, because it can grow up to 50 meters high and the trunk up to 2 meters thick! It takes 10 to 25 years for fruit to reach the tree.

Once that has happened, the fruits must mature for another 14 months. Every year 40 fruits grow on the tree. The fruit has the shape of a cone and weighs approximately 2 kilos. A fruit can easily contain 20 seeds, we know these seeds as Brazil nuts. There are even Brazil nut trees that are more than 500 years old.
