Ensuring we have enough leafy greens and vegetables in our body is integral to our overall wellness and health. Containing high levels of calcium, fibre, antioxidants and vitamins they help to promote healthy heart function, assist digestion, maintain eye health and leave your skin glowing and refreshed. 

Enter the famous green powder. This wellness hack was created to assist people in adding more greens to their daily diet in an easy way by being added to water or smoothies. 

“Despite our best intentions, sometimes, when we’re busy, it can be difficult to pack enough fruit and veggies into our daily diet”, said founder of cult ingestible beauty brand The Beauty Chef, Carla Oates. “If this sounds familiar, a greens powder is a really easy way to increase your daily greens intake”. 

While green powders are not a easy fix to healthy living and were made to supplement a healthy diet, they can be a helpful tool for anyone who wants to add even more greens to their day and benefit from the rich nutrients they include. 

What are green powders

So what exactly are green powders? 

They are usually a combination of dried, powdered vegetables in order to boost the greens we should be ingesting in our day to day. Some powders have added seeds and probiotics to give that extra boost or target specific aesthetic concerns. 

“Fibre is also really important to help feed your gut microbiome and get things moving again. Fibre and gut microbes are inextricably linked—consuming fibre feeds the good bacteria in our gut and helps create the conditions for this good bacteria to thrive”, said Carla.
