Rhythm, Regularity, NewGreens.
NewGreens infuses essential fiber, digestive enzymes, and probiotics to harmonize rhythm and ensure regularity
Staying regular can be tricky at times, especially if our eating habits are out of balance, or we’re dealing with stressful situations. In fact, some studies show that those that regulated their gut micro flora helped lessen anxiety symptoms¹. Since most of our neurotransmitters (happy hormones) are made in our gut through our good bacteria, supporting the microflora of the colon may not only help to improve our emotions, it’s also been shown to lower cholesterol, remove waste by-products and promote a positive mental health outlook.
In our NewGreens Berry Greens, we added several certified ingredients to help with supporting a healthy gut-healthy brain axis. Check it out!
Organic Flax Seed: Flax seeds contain both soluble and insoluble fiber, and are high in omega-3 fatty acids, specifically the essential fatty acid, Alpha-linolenic acid. Soluble fiber breaks down into a gel when passing through the digestive system, which helps to clean arteries and promote a healthy cardiovascular system, while insoluble fiber stays whole and helps maintain a healthy colon, and traps toxins needing to be eliminated.
Organic Aloe Leaf: Used for thousands of years, aloe has been long been known for its healing qualities when applied externally. Turns out, it also helps to lower inflammation in the gut too along with improving bowel regularity and easing heartburn symptoms.
Organic Banana: Banana’s provide a beneficial gut-feeding ingredient called Fructooligiosaccarides (FOS). Also known as a pre-biotic, FOS feeds our beneficial bacteria, helping maintain a healthy gut flora.
Organic Sunflower Seed: These seeds pack in one of the highest amounts of phytosterols, specifically, beta-sitosterol, which has been studied extensively to show its ability to help lower cholesterol and support a healthy prostate. Loaded with nutritive value, sunflower seeds are considered a functional food as they provide beyond basic nutrition.
Jerusalem Artichoke: This root vegetable native to Central America, is high in insoluble and soluble fibers, especially oligo-fructose inulin, a soluble non-starch polysaccharide. Inulin has been shown to help with toxin elimination and reduce constipation. Further, this tuber is a reliable source of minerals, especially potassium and iron.
Probiotics: Featuring Lactospore, this spore-forming and lactic acid producing probiotic helps support the growth of friendly bacteria, while also maintaining a healthy pH in the intestinal environment.
Fructooligiosaccarides: This prebiotic is a type of short chain sugars, that feed our beneficial bacteria and is food for our gut flora. FOS is found in several fruits and vegetables, most notably, bananas, chicory, and Jerusalem artichokes.
Organic Inulin: This is a type of fiber found in many root vegetables, that studies have shown may aid in the absorption of calcium. Research also indicates that it can help with weight loss, as it helps us to feel fuller longer.
DigeZyme: DigeZyme is made up of the 3 key digestive enzymes; Amylase to break down carbohydrates, Protease to break down protein and Lipase to break down fats. Taking digestive enzymes has been shown to help improve absorption of nutrients and help keep the digestive system healthy.
Bifidobacterium bifidum: Often recommended to help with IBS symptoms, this common strain is found primarily in the colon, but also supports vaginal health.
Bifidobacterium longum: Considered part of the gut microbiota and its production of lactic acid, B. longum helps prevent the growth of harmful bacteria in our gut lining.
Lactobacillus acidophilus: One of the most popular and well-known probiotics, acidophilus, has been shown to improve IBS symptoms, help lower cholesterol, and support vaginal flora.
