Greens, which are full of essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants are vital for a healthy lifestyle but it is so hard sometimes to remember to incorporate them into your diet on a regular basis. Greens Powders however are an easy and effective way to do this.
I put 1 tbsp. of greens powder into my protein smoothie every morning after I have been out to the gym. This means every day I am getting the necessary nutrients into my system for me to live a healthy and balanced lifestyle.
What I hear a lot from people is that they do not want to use greens powder because they don’t fancy the taste of some brands and I can agree to that! But Life Grip 5 Greens powder has no taste to it so if you added it to a smoothie for example, you can still enjoy your smoothie ingredients without ‘wrecking’ the taste.
Additional to that is that some greens powder brand’s are not 100% raw because they have additives thrown in or they do not have a range of super foods in their mix which is so much better for us as we don’t usually eat super foods in our everyday meals, why not get the maximum benefits?
Life Grip has only 5 ingredients; that is it! No messing around with these guys, the ingredients are as follows:
- Wheat Grass
- Barley Grass
- Oat grass
- Spelt Grass
Because there are only 5 ingredients, every 10 gram serve you consume, you are getting a larger dose per ingredient. The reason why there are only 5 is that there is a large amount per ingredient per serve. While in comparison to other brand’s who put in a lot of different ingredients into their product and so you would be getting a smaller amount of each ingredient per serve.
These 5 ingredients are all 100% Australian grown sprouted greens. No additives, no nasties and nothing artificial! Not only are there no additives but the ingredients themselves are FULL of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants which are especially useful for people who are starting a plant based lifestyle and do not know what foods to starts with to get all the nutrients they require.
These 5 ingredients were picked together very well because all of them have such a range of similar health benefits due to their nutrient content. Here are just a few of them:
- Regulates Blood Pressure
- Improves Digestion
- Controls Cholesterol Levels
- Boosts Immunity
The brand’s message is all about using a healthy diet, an active lifestyle and meditation to combat mental health and prevent diseases. This is a message we should all want to support and be engaged in because there is reoccurring evidence that suggests a strong link between mental health including depression and anxiety symptoms; and with people that live an unhealthy and inactive lifestyle.
“Improve Mental Health and Prevent Disease through Nutrition Meditation and Active Lifestyles” Adam Phillips, Founder of Life Grip
Stronger beliefs about the ability to engage in healthy lifestyles are related to healthier living attitudes and healthier lifestyle choices. This is what this brand supports and wants to preach to the world, so it is a brand I trust.
Honestly the only con I can think of would be the up front cost of the product. Although in saying that, greens powders are usually always quite expensive and Life Grip provides a large package so the price fits the value and quantity given. What is also handy is if you are unsatisfied with the product they provide a 30 day money back guarantee, so ultimately there is no downfall when investing into your health with Life Grip.
