Ditch the Dirty Dozen
BY SARAH CLARK
With so much health and nutritional information available now, it’s often hard to know exactly which supplement or nutrient to take in order to help protect us against any future illness and disease.
We know antioxidants are important to fight free radicals, immune boosting nutrients are clearly beneficial and digestion health is important, but there are only so many fruits and veggies you can pack into one meal!
Buying Organic fresh produce and juicing it daily is a luxury the majority us do not have and purchasing a juice at the juice bar each day can cost you around $50 a week! That’s why selecting powder blends of whole fruits and vegetables are a convenient and natural alternative to juggling juicers, ingredients & groceries.
Plus, popping pills each morning can become a nuisance if all you want to do is maintain good health. Drinking wholefood vegetable juices & smoothies are a convenient and natural way of adding ‘natures’ multivitamins’ into your diet.
Bioglan Organic Greens is one of those clever blends – it contains an organic blend of highly nutrient dense greens such as barley grass, wheatgrass (which contains no gluten), kale, chlorella, spirulina, broccoli, alfalfa grass) plus added benefits of guava, annatto, sesbania, Holy basil, lemon and amla. Just on their own these ingredients boast so many nutrients, and are easily assimilated in a powder form – with no binders or fillers to deal with.
Organic Greens & Reds Powder is another fantastic blend with the added benefit of popular red nutrients packed with Antioxidants. As well as guava, annatto, sesbania, Holy basil, lemon and amla, it contains strawberry, beetroot, red raspberry, acai berry juice, acerola, goji, cranberry, blackcurrant plus the greens blend of barley grass, wheatgrass, kale, chlorella, spirulina, broccoli, alfalfa grass.
Bonus – these blends both contain over 17 vitamins and minerals from whole food ingredients making them a natural, organic multivitamin and they taste amazing. You can add them to your morning smoothie or just add to water!
The ‘Dirty Dozen’
Knowing exactly what ingredients are going into our bodies, and which ones we should avoid is important when selecting fresh produce, particularly if it is not organic.
The ‘Dirty Dozen’ are the top 12 fruits and vegetables that are known to be the most contaminated when it comes to pesticide residue:
As Bioglan Organic Greens and Bioglan Organic Greens & Reds are both Australian Certified Organic, the ‘dirty dozen’ ingredients such as spinach, apples and berries in the blend do not contain any pesticide residue unlike non-organically certified produce. So now you can get clean energy, vitality and help build your immune system through these natural organic blends.
