Greens, Greens, Greens, Eat Your Greens!
Greens supplement powders have been on the market for some time now. With our lives getting busier and busier, it seems like we are always on-the-go (especially us city-goers). Supplements have become more prevalent because we need something quick and fast to gain the nutrients that we want without having to eat a large salad, for example. “Which supplements are the best?” is an ever-changing question for me. With more in-depth information on nutrition and new data coming out each year around how proper nutrition can increase your overall health and longevity, you may find that there is so much information out there to absorb and a lot of products that are basically all offering the same thing, while looking just a little bit different.
Why Should I Take a Greens Supplement?
Some of you may be wondering, “why should I take a greens supplement?” My answer: “Well, you don’t have to. You may not need it.” If you eat plenty of various green vegetables and leafy greens, you are probably getting all the nutrients you need. However, everyone’s bodies are different. You may find that your body is not absorbing certain nutrients that are abundant in leafy greens like vitamins C, E, K, and B9, in addition to some powerful antioxidants such as lutein and beta-carotene. Greens supplements are also a great source of fiber, can improve cardiovascular health, and boost your immunity. Greens supplements provide you with a quick but nutrient packed dose of greens without having to eat 6 heads of lettuce, 1 sprig of collard greens, 2 sprigs of leafy kale, and a handful of sunflower sprouts. If you are always on-the-go, a greens supplement may be just what you need for your busy lifestyle.
Collin, What Greens Supplement Is Your Favorite?
To be honest with you, I have tried a plethora of greens supplements and protein powders that contain added greens. I’m always looking for ways to add vegetables into my diet. Just check out my Sweet Potato – Carrot – Greens Pancakes. What I came across was that many of these greens supplements contained way to much fiber in them. I have a very sensitive digestive system while also suffering from IBS. So I have to maintain a proper balance of fiber and starchy foods that provide some substance for my system. So far, the one supplement that did not cause my gut to go into shock was Naked Greens by Naked Nutrition. Truth be told, I would have never found out about this goldmine of a product, if it wasn’t for Naked Nutrition reaching out to me.
What is Naked Nutrition?
Naked Nutrition is REAL food, REAL ingredients, FROM the earth. Naked Nutrition is a performance supplement company that provides the purest ingredients to fuel your workout.
After reading this, I was hooked. If you know me, you obviously know why.
My First Week on Naked Greens:
Earlier this month, I was asked to try out Naked Nutrition’s brand new Naked Greens Powder. After researching more about the company, I was so amazed at the quality of their product and the trust that quickly grabbed me solely from reading their website. I could not wait to get my hands on their product and try it out for myself. My first product to try was their Naked Greens which arrived on my doorstep a little over two weeks ago. I decided to add Naked Greens consistently for one week and see how my body reacted. Now, a little over a week later, I am so thrilled to say that Naked Greens is a game-changer! With its simple and sleek packaging and blend of an assortment of leafy green vegetables, Naked Greens is now one of my favorite greens supplement products on the market. I say this purely because this is the first greens supplement that does not “wreck” my digestive system.
Naked Greens mixes well in water and other beverages like almond milk and oat milk. It’s ingredients are all organically sourced and the taste is great. If you are sensitive to the taste of greens powders, not to worry. While it is a greens powder, the leafy greens taste is more of a subtle taste taste compared to some of its competitors. Having a more subdued taste made it great when adding it to my favorite almond milk from Trader Joes. I would forget that I added the greens powder. By far, my favorite way to drink Naked Greens is adding it to my protein powder. It adds a boost of nutrition post-workout. You can dress up this greens powder by adding it to you favorite beverage (for me, that’s almond milk and/or my protein powder), or even blend with your favorite fruits and superfoods. Later this week, I want to add it to a homemade salad dressing or even soups to add an extra punch of nutrients.

Specific Benefits of Naked Nutrition’s Naked Greens Powder that Blew Me Away!
— Ashwagandha – a medicinal herb (a small shrub with yellow flowers) that has been used for over 3,000 years to help naturally relieves stress and anxiety. How? It’s an adaptogen. Simply, an adaptogen helps your body manage stress by lowering cortisol levels in the body (aka the stress hormone). When cortisol levels are high it can cause negative affects on the body, such as storing fat in the abdomen. Ultimately, lowering stress helps lower anxiety. Ashwagandha can also improve thyroid health and sleep.
— Panax Ginseng – aka Korean Ginseng, is a root. It’s loaded with health benefits such as reducing the effects of testosterone related hair-loss, lowers stress levels, increases libido in woman, and may help cure erectile disfunction in men. Because studies have shown that ginseng reduces inflammation in the body ginseng can help heal skin irritations (ex: acne) and can help improve arthritis. Ginseng also aids in your energy level and focus AND it acts as an immune booster!
