Today's world is busy. I often joke that my brain has too many tabs open, and I know many people can relate to that as well. Convenience has become a huge aspect of our lives, which is where our Greens come in.
What are Greens?
Greens are an easy way to ensure you get a daily dose of fruits and vegetables. Before I go much further into the convenience and why they should be part of your daily routine, let me first explain what greens are. In its most basic definition:
Greens supplements are veggies, fruits, algaes and/or grasses that have been compacted and distilled into powdered form. They typically contain an assortment of nutrient rich foods like barley grass, wheat grass, spirulina, chlorella, alfalfa, herbs, vegetables, legumes, and fruits.
Bowmar Greens are a delicious superfood formula loaded with 13 vegetable and fruit sources containing the vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants necessary to support essential functions in the body and promote overall health and wellness.
Why are Greens Important?
There's a lot of freaking people on this earth. We as a human race are growing exponentially. Guess what isn't growing? Land to farm. Guess what that means? The demand to grow more and more from a single stalk, branch, vine, seed, etc. is also growing. Let's take corn, for example. The stalk derives the nutrients and rain from the soil in order to grow. A stalk with one ear of corn gives 100% of its nutrients to that one ear. A stalk with 40 ears of corn gives a substantial amount less per ear. More yield = more profit for farmers. We know farmers. We need farmers. We love farmers. But the fact of the matter is, our food is being manipulated to produce more per bushel and more per acre. This means less nutrients in the fruits and vegetables we are buying from the store.
Speaking of stores, let's talk about the grocery store. How am I able to buy corn in March yet the corn growing all across the corn belt of America at that time hasn’t even been planted yet and once it is, won't be harvested until fall? How can I eat a banana from Costa Rica that is still green even though it has been sitting on the shelf at the store for 3 days. How does one get strawberries in the winter? Have you ever really sat down and thought about where your food truly comes from? When a banana is picked, it's still green, very green, and picking the banana means you are cutting off its lifeline. No more nutrients for Mr. Banana as it travels all the way to Iowa and sits on a shelf and doesn't turn yellow for a week after it was picked. Stop and think about how horrifying that is. Even when you THINK you are getting the nutrients you deserve from eating fruits and veggies, chances are, it's not even coming close.
I know that’s some heavy information to sit with, yet here I am coming at you with another hard question. Can you honestly say, “I eat enough fruits and veggies on a daily basis.?” If the answer is no, trust me, you’re not alone. In fact, 90% of adults don’t eat enough fruits and veggies. As we talked about right out the gate, we live in a busy world. Who has time, or the desire, to prep 11 servings of fruits and vegetables a day? Better yet, who has the capacity to buy and store them?
This is where Greens come in, making it easier and more affordable to consume your fruits and veggies. The fruits and vegetables used in our greens grow to their fullest potential. They aren’t plucked early to be shipped off to sit on a store shelf and purchased within a week. The nutrients are extracted and put into powder form for your drinking pleasure. Not only are they extremely low in calories, but they are guaranteed to give you the nutrients that we claim on the container.
