We all struggle to get enough greens in our diet. In fact, according to a study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), an overwhelming majority of Americans are seriously lacking in fruits and vegetables.
The study found that only 10% of Americans claimed to eat the recommended 1.5-2 cups of veggies per day, and only 12% consumed the recommended daily servings of fruit.
Over time, this chronic lack of vitamins and nutrients can really have a negative impact on our overall well-being. From lack of energy to lackluster skin, weight gain, digestion issues, and more, skimping on key nutrition can really take its toll, and we’re largely seeing this play out across the country.
Besides serious health conditions like diabetes and arthritis, poor diet choices can leave us feeling awful, lethargic, and generally uninspired in our lives.
In Ayurveda, the nutrition-based “sister science” of yoga, it is strongly believed that the foods we eat impact our mood and overall well-being in a very powerful way. And we couldn’t agree more! That’s why we’ve chosen to incorporate holistic Ayurvedic principles and ingredients into our formulas and overlying philosophy here at Primal Harvest.
By simply finding a way to incorporate a super boost of greens into your daily routine, you can not only increase your energy levels, but also experience clearer skin, healthier digestion, appetite control, improved mental clarity, and more.
Luckily, getting your daily greens doesn't have to be as complicated, time consuming, or expensive as we might think. There are many convenient ways to get in more daily greens and start supplementing to fill in the gaps where our modern lifestyles fall short.
For example, adding a Primal Greens superfood smoothie to your morning routine is one easy way to pack a large amount of greens into one nutrient-packed on-the-go meal.
Adding a high-quality green powder to your morning smoothie will add in concentrated doses of superfoods, digestive enzymes, and all the greens your body needs to thrive!
A serving of Primal Greens can also be easily added into baking recipes, sauces, soups, oatmeal, and pretty much any of your favorite recipes for an extra dose of nutrition.
