There are almost too many nutrients in Spinach to count! It’s an excellent source of vitamin K, vitamin A, folate, magnesium, iron, copper, B2, B6, and vitamin E. And the payoff is clearer skin, improved eyesight, regulated blood pressure, increased muscle strength, and prevention of age-related macular degeneration. Incorporating spinach into your diet regularly is kind of a no-brainer.
All kale the queen! This trending green is e-v-e-r-y-w-h-e-r-e these days. And a good thing, too: While kale varietals come in many shapes, sizes what all forms of this great leafy veg have it common is aiding in digestion because it’s packed full of fiber. Plus, it’s chock full of vitamins and minerals, including iron, vitamin a, c and k, antioxidants, calcium, and more, so is deserving of a prominent place in your diet.
It doesn’t get cuter than alfalfa! These little sprouts pack a nutritious punch and are easy to toss on salads, in sandwiches, or straight in your mouth. Alfalfa has been associated with reducing the risk of breast cancer, improving digestion, and protecting overall heart health. Even those this sprout is a green power player, women who may be pregnant, small children, and the elderly need to be cautious about eating raw alfalfa because it can contain harmful bacteria E. coli and Salmonella.

Seaweed is nutritious, what??
You got that right! Because seaweed is grown in shallow, nutrient-dense ocean water, eating it has dozens of health benefits, which is why we’ve included it as an ingredient in our Perfect Bar. What’s inside? Oh, calcium, natural sources of vitamins A, B1, B2, C, D and E, as well as vital minerals like zinc and magnesium. Not to mention kelp is also purported to have anti-aging properties due to its iodine levels and can help with hair growth. Enough said?
