What can I say about this product? One word: AMAZING!
As a Holistic Therapist I have never come across a product that holds so many benefits for the body as a whole. Alongside “traditional” medicine, I also believe in the body’s own capability to “heal” itself, by bringing itself into alignment, through different methods of “alternative” medicine, yet not forgetting the most important source of wellbeing which is nutrition.
In Greens Balance we find, not one or two but five Colours, which we find in our veggies and fruits, for Healthier Living. We know that many fruits and vegetables come in variety of beautiful colours. But do you we what the benefits of these colours are to your health?
Here are just a few of the many benefits and beneficial phytonutrients brought to us by nature’s colourful foods:
Various greens contain chlorophyll, antioxidants and phytonutrients. Vegetables like kale and broccoli contain the powerful phytonutrient sulforaphane, furthermore, Alfalfa, barley grass and wheatgrass can contain enzymes as well as vitamins A, K and E.
Yellows are a source of carotenoids like alpha and beta-carotene and zeaxanthin.
Yellows fruits and vegetables are a source of vitamins A, C and antioxidant bioflavonoids. Carotenoids can help support eye and skin health.
Reds, like tomatoes, supply the antioxidant lycopene and carotenoid which supports eye health. Red fruits are sources of antioxidants, flavonoids and polyphenols; i.e. pomegranate contain antioxidants ellagic acid and punicalagin.
Blue fruits and berries are pigmented with the antioxidant anthocyanidin. Fruits like grapes contain the powerful antioxidant resveratrol and vitamin C. These fruits can also contain antioxidants like quercetin and flavonoids.
Flax seeds, chia seeds and quinoa all contain the omega-3 fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid. These grains are also sources of various vitamins and minerals; and they are also sources of macronutrients like protein.
If we then look at these colours holistically we find that they correspond to 4 of the major 7 chakras of the chakra system, which is believed to control the energy fields of our body.
The green colour is linked to the Heart centre, and this is associated with our feelings and emotions. Imbalances in this chakra manifest as anger, depression, fear, anxiety, etc. A well balanced Heart centre is full of positivity, joy and love, which we all need in our lives to face the challenges of our daily lives.
The yellow colour corresponds to our Solar Plexus chakra which is linked to creativity and willpower. When this chakra is misaligned we find ourselves “stuck in a rut”, we lack drive and vision to complete our goals; a well-balanced/aligned Solar Plexus is seen in those who seem unstoppable and able to achieve everything they set their mind to.
Reds and browns are linked to the Root or Base chakra, and helps us remain grounded, present in the moment and focused on the tasks at hand, as well as associated to our sexual energies.
We could call Greens Balance our “Liquid Green Aphrodisiac”. A misaligned Root chakra can manifest as someone who is always “in the clouds” or quite the opposite, someone who is either “black or white”.
And lastly, the blues. Blues relate to the 3rd Eye chakra, which helps us with our intuition, spirituality and inner wisdom. When our 3rd Eye chakra is out alignment, we don’t see the magical or spiritual side to life, we have blinkers that only sees what it is there and doesn’t allow our imagination to see beyond our eyes.
When I first drank Greens Balance, I felt energised and unstoppable, which I didn’t associate with the drink at first. On the following days, I continued to feel the same way, and I could not understand the reason why I felt so “full of beans”, due to my work load and busy lifestyle; the only thing I had changed was, I started drinking this “Green Nectar”. I read the label on Greens Balance, and I was positively surprised to see how incredible amazing this product was, where I was getting 1 serving of vegetables and fruits of my 5 a day (or 7 a day as we have been encouraged to do earlier in the year, 2014), and additional to that I was energising 4 of my main chakras.
Greens Balance is sweet in taste, although it may not look it. However, some people have reported it is flavourless and others that tastes similar to Spirulina or Chlorella, which are present in the mix.
I prefer to drink Greens Balance on its own, mixed with 250ml of water; however you can have it any way your imagination allows you to; mixed with milk, mixed with protein shakes, sprinkled over salads, in sauces, etc. One other fact I find appealing is the fact that you aren’t limited to just one serving a day, you can have as many as you wish, as each servings equates to one serving to our veggies and fruit our 5-7/day.
Other benefits include:
- Low sugar, low sodium, allergen free
- Includes alkaline forming fruits and vegetables
- Contains prebiotic fibre inulin
Greens balance is suitable for anyone, from children who don’t “like” veggies to “on-the-go” professionals who don’t have the time and eat a well-balanced diet.
It retails at £40.00, however, there are discounts available, just ask the person who sent you this link. It only works out £1.33 per serving before discounts, which is about the same if not less than the “organic” vegetable serving equivalent.
I highly recommend you try this product because not only is it nutrition for our bodies it is also nutritious for our souls!
