Superfoods and greens have increased in popularity as people look to improve their intake of healthy, nutrient-dense foods. At Walgreens, we have a variety of these supplements to fit your goals and lifestyle.
What is a greens supplement?
Greens supplements are powdered forms of fruits, vegetables, grasses and algae. They can help you increase your intake of these nutrient-dense foods. While they're not intended to replace real, whole foods, greens supplements can enhance your healthy eating pattern and fill in the gaps. These supplements can be a beneficial part of your diet, but check with your healthcare provider before adding vitamins and supplements to your routine.
What ingredients are considered superfoods?
You can find superfoods contained in greens supplements or sold separately as individual products. Some of the most common superfood ingredients include spirulina, chlorella and moringa.
Wheatgrass, alfalfa and mushrooms also pack in additional nutrients. These superfoods contain high levels of many vitamins and minerals that some people may not get enough of in their regular diet.
Chlorella contains vitamins D and B12, nutrients that may be lacking in plant-based diets.
Moringa contains vitamins A and C, as well as zinc, calcium, iron, magnesium and potassium.
Wheatgrass contains vitamins A, C and E. It also has concentrated amounts of iron, calcium and magnesium.
Mushrooms are a source of B and D vitamins as well as minerals such as other nutrients such as potassium, selenium, copper and phosphorus.
What kind of superfoods and greens products does Walgreens sell?
At Walgreens, you will find a variety of supplements to fit your needs. Superfoods and greens can be purchased as capsules, tablets or powders that can be mixed into food or drinks. To boost your intake of a specific ingredient, look for single-ingredient products such as spirulina, chlorella and moringa. Consider superfood supplements that combine greens, fruits and vegetables into one powder or capsule.
How can I add a superfood or greens supplement to my day?
Superfoods and greens can be taken at any time of the day. Follow the instructions on the package. Powder supplements can be mixed into any beverage, smoothie or even yogurt. Consider adding lemon or lime juice to enhance the taste of powder greens in water.
