We all know it’s important to eat your fruits and vegetables. But for some, busy schedules can interfere with intentional meal planning. Or for those who simply can’t stomach a lot of greens, Vibrant+ is an easy and delicious way to get all the nutrition from those antioxidant packed foods.
Dark leafy greens contain a high concentration of nutrients including: Iron, which helps carry oxygen through the body, vitamin A, which supports normal vision and the immune system; complex B vitamins, which keep your energy levels up; vitamin E, which keeps your skin healthy; and vitamin K, which protects collagen and promotes healthy blood clotting. Consuming green vegetables consistently has also been associated with slower cognitive decline (1). It’s crucial to consume a variety of green vegetables to ensure that you get a wide range of nutrients. Vibrant+ includes these organic leafy greens: Kale, spiraling, spinach, alfalfa, barley Grass, chlorella, parsley leaf and broccoli.
Vibrant+ also contains a reds blend for those fruits that deliver several vitamins and minerals.
Beet powder in particular is a powerhouse for cardiovascular and blood health. Beets contain nitrates that convert into nitric oxide and increase blood flow by dilating blood vessels which promotes oxygen and nutrient delivery to various organs. Beet powder may also help control glucose levels and improve insulin response (2).
Pomegranate juice is also included and has a number of health benefits, including preventing or treating high blood pressure, high cholesterol, oxidative stress, hyperglycemia, and inflammation. Pomegranate juice has a higher antioxidant capacity than red wine and green tea, due to the presence of punicalagins, anthocyanins and hydrolysable tannins (3).
Vibrant+ supports a healthy inflammatory response in the body. Pineapple juice is included for several vitamins and minerals. Manganese, copper, vitamin B6, and vitamin C are all vital for overall health. Pineapple juice also contains bromelain, an enzyme that may help reduce inflammation.
Vibrant+ packs a whole lot of nutrition in just one scoop per day. You can get in a lot of the important vitamins and minerals that can be missed from day to day. It can be mixed with water for a simple drink any time of day, or it can be blended into smoothies and shakes for added flavor and nutritional value. Many greens powders tend to be “earthy” in flavor, however, with Vibrant+ you will experience a light Pina colada flavor that also pairs well with VePRO protein powder. A greens powder should not be considered a full replacement for leafy greens, it is best to supplement in addition to a diet that includes whole fruits and vegetables.
