The Benefits of Max Effort Greens
Max Effort Greens is an all-natural formula that is full of antioxidants and nutrients that most people are missing from their diets. The organic greens blend and antioxidant blend are both full of ingredients that will help your overall health. The greens blend contains spirulina, wheat grass, barley grass, chlorella, parsley leaf, broccoli, beet root, spinach, kale, and alfalfa.
My favorite ingredients included in this blend are spirulina, wheat grass, and barley grass. I love the inclusion of spirulina, a cyanobacteria in the blue green algae family, because it is loaded with nutrients and antioxidants. Spirulina contains vitamins B1, B2, and B3, as well as copper, iron, magnesium, potassium, and manganese. Gram for gram, spirulina may be considered the most nutritious food on earth. The main active component in spirulina is an antioxidant called phycocyanin. This antioxidant can inhibit production of inflammatory signaling molecules and fight free radicals. Wheat grass also carries a lot of benefits, including nutrients like calcium, magnesium, iron, chlorophyll, and vitamins A, C, and E. Wheat grass also contains glutathione, an antioxidant often used to protect the liver, and amino acids.
I also like that barley grass is featured in this product. Barley grass became so popular for its health benefits that pre-World War II pharmacists in the United States sold tablets of it, possibly making it the first dietary supplement. Barley grass helps with digestion, detoxification, and the immune system. It is very high in vitamin C and chlorophyll which have a lot of benefits to the human immune system, it also contains organic sodium which the stomach needs to create hydrochloric acid, this acid is what breaks down food.
Max Effort Greens also contain an antioxidant blend which is made up of milk thistle extract, citrus bioflavonoids, burdock root, green tea, and China matcha leaf tea. It is very important to have milk thistle and citrus bioflavonoids in a healthy diet but many people do not understand their benefits. Milk thistle’s main component is silymarin, Max Effort’s milk thistle is standardized to 80% silymarin, this anti-inflammatory and antioxidant compound used as a natural treatment for liver problems. Milk thistle also protects the liver from toxins and free radicals. Citrus bioflavonoids have a high antioxidant capacity and act synergistically with vitamin C to neutralize free radicals. Since the greens blend is full of vegetables that provide vitamin C, these bioflavonoids can work at their full capacity.
A greens product should be a staple in any healthy diet, especially if you don’t love the taste of greens or have enough time to prep your vegetables for the week. Max Effort’s Greens powder is well put together and can help you get your greens in even if you can’t stomach broccoli.
