Greens! How best can I have them?
In today's pursuit of wellness, health supplements have become an integral part of many people's daily routines. While these supplements promise to fill the gaps in our nutritional intake, there's an ongoing debate about the most effective form of supplementation. Nutritional supplements indeed play a pivotal role in maintaining our well-being, but their source is key. Knowing and understanding the ingredients used to make your supplements is crucial. Understanding which form of pill, powder, gummy, or chocolate your body will absorb better, is as crucial.
Why does your body need greens?
Leafy greens and green veggies offer a plethora of essential vitamins, minerals, and nutrients that your body needs to function at full throttle. Packed with vitamins A, C, and K, and an array of B vitamins alongside minerals like iron, calcium, and magnesium, these verdant wonders support multiple body functions. Their abundance of antioxidants aids in combating oxidative stress, while their fiber content promotes digestive health and aids in maintaining a healthy weight. Their rich phytonutrient profile helps reduce inflammation, bolstering the immune system and supporting cellular health. Incorporating leafy greens and green veggies into one's diet is not just a choice; it's a pivotal step toward unlocking the body's full potential and vitality. Leafy green vegetables in particular are a rich source of micronutrients responsible for improving skin elasticity and hair growth by increasing the concentration of fibroblast cells which in turn increase collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acids in the body.
A fibroblast is the most common type of cell found in connective tissues. Fibroblasts secrete collagen and elastin fibres, enzymes and hyaluronic acids. As we age, the activity of fibroblasts reduces, leading to reduction in the production of collagen, elastin, hyaluronic acid, and chondroitin(needed for joint mobility). Now you may wonder, but I eat a salad every day, I eat green veggies even though I don't like them, but I don't see any of these benefits! Why?
Well, the food we get today (even the raw organic ones) are no longer the powerhouses of nutrition they once used to be. Due to modern farming practices, cooking methods, and climate change, the produce isn't a host of the same nutrients it once used to be. So a bowl of salad is probably not giving you your daily required dose of micronutrients. It therefore becomes essential to add supplements to your daily routine, that can give you your daily required dose of nutrients. But what is the best way to supplement?
So what's the best way to supplement?
It's well-documented that the body's absorption of nutrients is closely linked to its enjoyment of specific foods. A significant aspect of the digestive process hinges on signals transmitted by the brain in response to the appearance, taste and the anticipation of food. When the brain finds food appealing, it triggers messages that prompt the digestive tract to be prepared to accept the food it's about to receive. Enzymes and juices necessary for efficient digestion are then produced in readiness for the incoming food. A vivid example of this mechanism is the reaction of our salivary glands to delicious food—a noticeable increase in saliva production. This response isn't confined to the mouth; it extends throughout the digestive system. As the body eagerly anticipates enjoyable food, it primes itself for more effective digestion, making the entire process smoother and more efficient.
The same effect works adversely when we are forced to gulp down pills, diluted powders, etc which we wash down with a whole lot of water. So if we have to put nutritional supplements into the body for absorption. Shouldn't it be something more enjoyable, like a piece of chocolate?
The allure of pills as a quick fix often overlooks their synthetic nature. They lack the complex blend of nutrients and fiber found in greens, impeding optimal absorption.
On the other hand, while gummies and chocolates are appealing, their hidden sugars and additives can detract from their intended health benefits. Enter plant-based supplements made using zero sugar or chemical additives, like Rekindle and Replenish from Caim by årelang.
Our research shows that the body can absorb only a small quantity of micronutrients from the food we eat each day. You do not need to overload the amount of nutrients with the hope that it'll be a quick fix. You need just a very little because that's how much your body can absorb.
While supplements are great additions, they cannot replace an optimal diet. With an optimal diet, plant-based and natural gummy and chocolate supplements can help give your body what it needs to function properly. Take Replenish With Greens for example. Replenish With Greens offers a simple yet impactful way to enhance overall health and well-being, providing a concentrated source of essential micronutrients found in a vast array of greens. These vegan gummies are a nutrient powerhouse, addressing the significant deficiencies present in modern diets. Made, using no sugars or any hidden sugars like glucose syrup, corn syrup, HFCS, FOS that make up the base of most gummies in the market,making them counterproductive to the health support claims they make. Now Caim by arelang is probably in the only company in India that is making their gummies using 100% pure apple juice concentrate as its base - so Replenish with Greens is not only sugar free, but also free of harmful additives, with each gummy boasting of no more than 5 Calories!
But how does Replenish with Greens work?
Enriched with potent greens from ingredients like Chlorella, Spirulina, Seaweed, and Ginkgo biloba, these gummies help stimulate cell repair and collagen synthesis, fostering healthier skin, hair, and nails. Infused with Inulin, Spinach, and Milk thistle for improved digestion, and Ashwagandha, Ginseng, and Lecithin to elevate metabolism and energy levels, these plant-based gummies cater to comprehensive wellness needs for both adults and young individuals.
In the realm of nutritional supplements, the inherent goodness of healthy greens reigns supreme. While pills might offer convenience, they often lack the holistic benefits found in whole foods. Embracing leafy greens and natural plant-based gummies like Replenish With Greens, not only ensures the intake of vital nutrients but also fosters a sustainable and wholesome approach to health.
