We all know we need to eat them. 5- 10 servings a day, eat the rainbow etc, etc. I can feel you tuning out already. Wait! Listen up. I’m going to remind you of why “eat your vegetables” has never been more true, and show you the simplest way of increasing your intake.
Fruits and vegetables contain essential vitamins, minerals and fiber that help protect us from heart disease and stroke, help control blood pressure and prevent some types of cancer. They reduce inflammation and increase our immunity and energy.
We know that fresh is always best, but sometimes that just does not happen. That’s where Greens First supplement comes in to save the day. It helps to fill the nutrition gaps that occur as a result of our busy lifestyles, depleted soil and S.A.D diets.
