Benefits of green powders

 

You see them everywhere now, green powders looking like pond water and claiming to do wonders for your health.

GoNutrition complete greens blend  is a cheap affordable blend boasting 39 ingredients

http://tidd.ly/262660ea

But are there any real benefits? Read on to get a brief overview on what they can actually do for you.

“A green powder supplement is like a multivitamin on steroids,” nutritionist Teresa Boyce says. “They offer you all the vitamins and minerals of a multi but with added nutrients such as probiotics, prebiotics, detoxification nutrients and disease-protective antioxidants.”

Green powder supplements claim that a two-teaspoon serve offers up to 81 of the vital ingredients our body needs every day. They also promise to optimise health and vitality, and where once green powders were the domain of health-food stores, they can now be bought in supermarkets and chemists.

Boyce believes these green powders are beneficial supplements whether you have a healthy diet or not, however, they’re best used to “supplement a healthy diet”.

The ingredients

Powders come in varying shades of green and are fairly fine, making them easy to digest, and can be added to water, smoothies, juices or any beverage. The ingredient lists are usually long and impressive and include land vegetables and grains such as wheatgrass, spinach, broccoli and beetroot; aquatic plants and algae like kelp, spirulina and chlorella; probiotics and enzymes such as lactobacillus acidophilus and coenzyme Q10; herb and spice extracts including dandelion, wolfberry and ginger; and vitamins and minerals.

The research

Scientific evidence on green powders is hard to come by, but there have been preliminary studies into ingredients such as chlorella and spirulina.

A 2009 Japanese study suggested chlorella could be effective in fighting major lifestyle diseases; it was found to reduce body-fat percentage and blood-glucose levels and help those suffering from type 2 diabetes, obesity or heart disease. Other research claims that green algae such as spirulina are nutrient powerhouses, packed with twice as much protein as spinach as well as antioxidants and nine essential amino acids.

The verdict

Nutrition Australia spokeswoman Aloysa Hourigan says the supplements are concentrated sources of nutrients, but may not be necessary for people who have a healthy diet with the recommended five serves of veg a day (the equivalent to 2.5 cups of cooked veg or four to five cups of fresh veg).

“These supplements have a lot of nutrients in them, but they’re not a magic nutrition pill that fills all the gaps in your diet,” Hourigan says.

Boyce agrees that diet is paramount and says the bulk of it should be whole foods and seasonal produce. “Supplements aren’t to replace foods but to enhance our nutrient profile. In an ideal world we’d all eat organic food, drink purified water and breathe clean air. However, this isn’t the case, and that’s why there’s a place for green supplements to be incorporated into a healthy diet.”

How to get the most out of green powder

Choose wisely, Boyce says. “Do your research and use a quality green powder with a range of nutrients,” she adds. “Take the recommended dose and be consistent. Taking a green supplement once in a while won’t provide the optimal health benefits seen in taking it daily.”

Myprotein Inulin review the health benefits & visceral fat loss explained

image

Why am I writing this review? Well I was thinking about buying Inulin powder

I have been taking inulin powder for a couple of months now and have been feeling the benefits with little to no side effects other than an initial increase in gas which subsided after a couple of days thankfully! I purchased it from Myprotein for £9.99 which is pretty good for the amount and how long it lasts (easily 2months). After watching the program: How to stay young with Angela Rippon on TV and listening to how this substance could help protect you against most of the major health issues we all face as we age, I thought I’d give it a try. Alternatively Amazon have lots of options in powder or capsule form.

My experience on the whole was good, nothing dramatic or life altering to be honest but over the last 2 months I have noticed that I seem to be able to tolerate wheat better and to an extent milk products are back on the menu which for me is an added benefit.

I take it in the evening with a probiotic capsule as the two seem to go together well, the inulin I believe being an Fructo-Oligosaccharide (FOS) helps to feed the good bacteria. for more info on Probiotics see Probiotics the missing link to your health and wellbeing

What is inulin

Inulin is a soluble fiber found in many plants. Your gut bacteria convert it into short-chain fatty acids, which provide several health benefits.

Although many plants contain only small amounts of inulin, others are excellent sources. Here’s how much inulin is in 3.5 oz, or 100 grams, of the following foods:

Asparagus: 2-3 grams.
Chicory root: 36-48 grams.
Garlic: 9–16 grams.
Jerusalem artichoke: 16–20 grams.
Jicama: 10–13 grams.
Onions: 1–8 grams.
Yacon root: 7–8 grams.

The benefits include:

Reduction in visceral fat (this is the fat you cannot see which is stored internally around organs and has been linked to increased chance of developing diabetes, cancer, stroke and heart disease.)

Improved gastrointestinal health
colon cancer prevention
better blood sugar control
healthier cholesterol levels and improved fat metabolism
improved bone mineralization
protection from fatty liver disease
protection from obesity
better immunity

You can read/watch more about it here it was also featured on the bbc program How to stay young and presented by Angela Rippon.

Barley Grass and alkalising athletes

barley-grass-for-gout

http://bit.do/barley-grass

i have been experimenting with using this product to help flush out my system after long runs, squash matches and gym sessions after i had read an article suggesting barley grass could help in alkalising athletes post training. i have noticed amongst other things that i seem much less achy,  recover quicker, my legs aren’t as heavy  and i seem to be generally more energetic which is a bonus.

Whilst these things are great from a performance point of view there seem to be other things going on including: my nails are growing quicker, my skin seems less tired and much clearer!! and i am sleeping very deeply.

i some times test my alkalinity and Ph with dip sticks after training  and before taking http://bit.do/barley-grass i was definitely 5.0-5.5 and now after taking it im pushing 6.0-6.5 even after runs above 12 miles where my system would normally be more acidic. i some times combine it with http://bit.do/rice-protein  and this seems to really help.
