You have heard it your whole life; Eat your vegetables! Finish your Broccoli!
When you were young, eating vegetables felt more like a chore than it did a reward. You were told over and over how good they were for you, but did you ever truly understand why? Did it resonate with you as you have gotten older?
Well, ask yourself this; Are vegetables a key part of my daily regimen? Do I get the recommended amount of 2 to 3 cups daily?
Well, you are not alone! I too was there before I was introduced to the BENU Super Greens. In fact, studies state that only 1 in every 10 adults meet their required serving of vegetables a day.
I know most of us would agree that it is much easier to implement protein and carbs into our diet, than it is to eat a green leaf.….yummm.
However, with the BENU Super Greens, it is 10x easier!
No, not just because they are quick and more efficient to drink, but because at BENU we put everything we have into giving you the BEST ingredients, with the BEST taste!
Yes, I said taste. Our greens were made to make you forget that bitter taste of lawn clippings and vegetables…..and instead taste lemonade and berries…...and we delivered.
In this article, we will go over what Greens are, why they are important, and how our ingredients play a key role in your overall health.
WHAT ARE GREENS?
Greens are a dietary supplement where the ingredients can vary from company to company, but are usually a comprise of vegetables, grasses, herbs, algaes, and probiotics that provide you with a good amount of vitamins and nutrients.
These ingredients are dehydrated and compacted into a powdered form so that you can simply throw a scoop into your water or liquid of choice and be on your way!
Our Super Greens are meant for everyone, no matter what their goals are. And for those of us who are not veggie lovers or who find it hard to implement vegetables into our busy lives, Super Greens are a great place to start!
WHY ARE GREENS IMPORTANT?
Green Supplements are important for a variety of reasons.
Green Supplements provide you with fiber, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals.
By incorporating them into your diet you can help protect yourself from developing heart disease, diabetes, digestive disorders and can also help you live longer.
Something to note: I said, GREEN SUPPLEMENT.
Greens are not meant to replace real food or get you out of eating the right foods, but by implementing them into your day, they will provide you with the nutrients and vitamins your body needs.
When it comes to our greens, not only are they easy and efficient…...and can’t forget, Delicious! But they also provide your body with many other benefits.
Here’s a list to name a few:
- Lower Blood Pressure

You want High Quality, All-natural ingredients that show results and I am proud to say that this is exactly what you will get with BENU Super Greens.
Let’s look at each ingredient and what it can do for your health:
Organic Spirulina - one of the most potent sources of nutrients out there. It contains a protein called Phycocyanin which supplies the body with antioxidants, alleviates pain and also acts as an anti-inflammatory. It also contains vitamin B and Iron.
Organic Artichoke Inulin Root - helps maintain a healthy blood sugar and promotes “good bacteria'' in the gut for better digestion. It also contains vitamin C which supports the immune system and enhances the absorption of Iron.
Organic Broccoli Stem - high in vitamin K which promotes good bones, heart health and anti-inflammatory properties. Also, high in Iron and vitamin C.
Organic Alfalfa - aids in promoting healthy liver function and digestion. It helps alkalize and detoxify the body, which has a neutralizing effect on the intestinal tract and assists with digestive problems. Alfalfa also supports the immune system and energy levels.
Organic Spinach - contains Beta-carotene which promotes a strong immune system and good eye health. It also contains good amounts of Iron and Fiber.
Green Tea Leaf - used for fighting free radicals in the body which helps protect against digestive and respiratory infections. Green Tea Leaf can aid in weight loss by increasing the number of calories your body burns through thermogenesis.

Organic Ashwagandha Root - classified as an adaptogen, meaning that it can help your body manage stress which results in lower cortisol levels. It has also been shown to boost brain function, lower blood sugar and help fight symptoms of anxiety.
Organic Chlorella - a species of green algae found in still fresh water. It has been shown to improve digestion by promoting “good bacteria” in the gut, as well as support your immune system.
Organic Wheatgrass - contains various nutrients that support a healthy immune system and energy levels. These include chlorophyll and flavonoids, which are proven to have health-promoting properties. Additionally, wheatgrass may support alkalinity in the body, support digestion and increase vigor. Wheatgrass has been shown to support a healthy pH balance in the body, which is especially helpful for people who consume many processed foods.
Digestive Enzymes - enzymes aid in the breakdown of the foods we eat.
Probiotics - help balance the bacteria in our gut and ensure the absorption of the nutrients we consume.
