How to Pick a Greens Powder

You may be thinking about how to get more healthy foods into your diet. Greens are a great place to start. In the supplement world, “greens” refer to foods such as grasses, herbs, vegetables, and sea algae. These deeply pigmented plants are nutrient-dense, packed with vitamins, minerals, amino acids, phytonutrients, and antioxidants. Understandably, eco-friendly greens powder and green protein, sold in clean packaging is a welcome addition to our daily routine.

There are a lot of powdered greens products to choose from. You can narrow down the field by looking for greens that have been fermented and are grown with the environment in mind.


Why Fermented Greens?

People have been fermenting foods to preserve them since antiquity. But there are other benefits to the practice. When greens are fermented, you get the full benefit of their nutritional potential — vitamins, minerals, and protein — because they’re more easily digested. In fact, fermenting enhances protein quality and absorption by up to 40 percent.

Plus, fermenting helps eliminate antinutrients like phytates, which inhibit the absorption of nutrients such as iron, zinc, and other minerals. It also promotes gut health by nurturing beneficial bacteria.


Why Eco-Friendly Greens?

We only have one earth. Farms that practice regenerative agriculture place taking care of this planet at the heart of their mission. These farms grow their crops organically, with no chemical fertilizers, herbicides, or pesticides.

What’s good for the earth is good for you, too. If there are no toxic chemicals on the plants, in the water, or in the soil, there are none in the food you eat either.

organic Whole Earth & Sea greens powder and protein powder with greens

Consider Natural Factors Whole Earth & Sea 100% Fermented Organic Greens and Protein & Greens. Here’s what we like best:

  • 100% fermented and certified organic greens from 29 grasses, fruits, and vegetables — the majority grown on their own regenerative, certified organic farm in British Columbia
  • A powerful blend of immune-supporting mushrooms
  • 8 servings of fruits and vegetables in each scoop (8!)
  • 21 grams of plant-based protein in Proteins & Greens

The ingredients in both products fall firmly on the eco-friendly side. The organic, non-GMO greens are grown with compost rather than chemical fertilizers, and they’re cared for and harvested by hand. Isn’t it dandy how these powdered greens are packaged: the bottles are made from BPA-free, 100% post-consumer recycled and recyclable materials.


Many Flavors of Greens Powder

But perhaps best of all is how well these clean greens powders work in green protein drinks, smoothies and smoothie bowls, baked goods and desserts, snacks and energy balls, drinks, and popsicles. Have a look at these ideas for starters, and then experiment with your own recipes.
