Provides essential minerals and antioxidants*
Sea lettuce is an edible plant-based, seaweed that offers protein, and essential minerals such as natural iron, manganese, iodine, magnesium and calcium. Sea lettuce is a food staple that is consumed worldwide, especially in Greece and Japan. Maybe this is coincidental, but residents in those countries sometimes live beyond 100 years of age! Seaweeds contain compounds known as "fucoidans" and "fucans" which have demonstrated powerful antioxidant, DNA-protective effects and the ability to support healthy cytokine levels and immunomodulation.*
Natural source of carotenoids*
Carrot powder is in Yummy Greens because it is a natural source of alpha & beta carotene, potassium and vitamin K1 which are nutrients that support healthy blood, and blood pressure.* Carrots contain lutein, long known to support eyesight* as well as lycopene which is another heart-loving antioxidant, also shown to support lung, colon and prostate tissue. Perhaps best known for it's eye-loving nutrients, a diet rich in carrots may help individuals with low vitamin A levels who then become more likely to experience night blindness and clouding of the front of the eye.
Supports mitochondrial health*
Beetroot is a nutritionally packed food that has been shown to help with methylation, a detoxification pathway by providing a compound called "betaine."* It is loaded with vitamin C, a water-soluble antioxidant that supports immune function.*
There is a high amount of nitrates in beets that has been documented to significantly lower blood pressure by up to 4 – 10 mmHg over a period of only a few hours.* Beets also may improve athletic performance by supporting mitochondrial health.*
Source of minerals, vitamins and antioxidants
Chlorella is an edible green that is part of Yummy Greens aquatic vegetable blend. Aside from being a nutritionally dense superfood, this is known to bind to heavy metals, enabling detoxification. Chlorella is sometimes thought to enhance immunity, support healthy cholesterol ratios and protect blood pressure and blood sugar values.* Being rich in iron and other trace minerals, it is helpful in managing these deficiencies while also shuttling toxins out of the body. It helps with blood sugar and cholesterol ratios in the body.*
Antioxidant protection and supports autophagy*
Acai berries grow on the Acai Palm Trees native to the Amazon rainforest. Superfruit acai berries are incredibly rich in zinc, chromium, iron, manganese, magnesium and phosphorus. They impart "anthocyanins" which are strong antioxidants that are well-studied. Certain acai-derived compounds have been studied in test tubes and found to keep cells in the body from growing or spreading in an uncontrolled fashion.* Acai can support autophagy, which is your body's method of cleaning up and disposing of damaged or non-working cells.
Natural support for liver function and energy*
This ingredient is regarded as a super duper potent health food due to its amazing antioxidant power. It contains many different minerals, amino acids and vitamins and contains a lot of chlorophyll which is a well-documented gastrointestinal 'cleanser.' Supplementing with wheatgrass has been shown to ramp up glutathione and vitamin C levels.* This in turn, reduces oxidative stress to the body. In animal studies, wheatgrass has been shown to support healthy levels of cholesterol.*
Provides bromelain for cytokine balance*
Pineapple is in this formula because it offers bromelain which has been extensively studied for its beneficial impact on the heart and on joint health.* It helps with cytokines.*
Many detox drinks include pineapple because it helps bolster health and promotes wellbeing. Pineapple is delicious and a small amount provides natural sweetness to the formula, along with antioxidants. That's great for people who are fatigued. It stimulates healthy food passage through the digestive tract as well.*
Very rich in iron, omega-3s, and antioxidants*
Dulse is a seaweed that has powerful antioxidant properties and can inhibit runaway cell proliferation, while providing an ample supply iron. That's important for people who are fatigued. Without iron, you cannot make a protein called hemoglobin, which acts like a tow truck and lugs oxygen all over the body and supports the health of your blood. Dulse contains alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, lutein and zeaxanthin, and essential fatty acids such as Omega-3s.
My husband drinks yummy greens everyday and has been able to stay off meds for acid reflux! This stuff really works!
Thank you Suzy for this great product! So perfect for those of us who battle low thyroid! Taste is excellent, color vibrant, the powder is easy to stir in! What's not to love... Kudos!
Yummy greens makes me feel good and tastes great. Unlike other super food green blends it doesn't have the thyroid suppressing ingredients of spinach, broccoli, kale and alfalfa. Instead it is packed with all kinds of healthy stuff. I will order again!
It tastes good with oatmilk. (the nondairy milks) I think that it helps me with some extra energy. It used to blend in better with the liquid. Thanks.
The Yummy Greens work great for me. I find after taking them in a glass of water first thing in the morning that I feel better and have more energy during the day. I would recommend Yummy Greens to anyone that needs a thyroid boost.
