Macronutrients, or macros, are essential nutrients the body needs in large quantities to remain healthy. Macronutrients provide the body with energy, help prevent disease, and allow the body to function correctly. There are three main types of macronutrients: proteins, fats, and carbohydrates.1
Greens First Healthy Living Kit combines all three macronutrients as Greens First, Dream Protein, and Omega-3 850 capsules to work interdependently in the body to help keep your patients healthy.
Greens, in the form of phytonutrient powder, provide natural antioxidants that help fight the damaging effects of free radicals. Protein is a natural fat burner that increases the metabolism due to it having a higher food thermic effect called (TEF). Healthy fats also boast a higher TEF.
Healthy fats, protein, and greens interact synergistically with each other in your body. For example, fat helps your body absorb vitamins A, D, E, and K. Protein is found throughout the body in muscle, bone, skin, hair, and virtually every other body part or tissue. It makes up the enzymes that power many chemical reactions and helps the body manufacture essential enzymes and hormones. Greens are vitally important to help reduce inflammation.
Eating greens, protein, and healthy fat helps keep you feeling fuller longer, which can help maintain a healthy body weight. By combining greens, clean protein, and healthy fats, you can benefit from all three nutrients and give your body the right fuel it needs.
Here are five benefits of eating greens, protein, and healthy fats:
- Boost brain health
- Aid weight loss
- Repair injured tissues after injury
- Reduce the risk of heart disease
- Sustainable energy levels
Greens, Protein, and Healthy Fats
The Healthy Living Kit by Greens First helps form part of the clean eating bigger picture, which emphasizes eating healthy foods instead of overly processed and refined foods.
By choosing the Healthy Living Kit, you’re eating nutrients and minerals that are closer to their natural and fresh state. During the refining process, the majority of foods are stripped of their natural nutrients. The result is an end product that isn’t as healthful as the item in its original whole-food state.
Greens Are Very Important For Health
The phytonutrient and antioxidant benefits of a diet rich in dark greens and brightly colored fruits and vegetables can be found in one delicious powder. Greens First contains certified organic fruits, vegetables, and barley grass which are first juiced, then spray dried at low temperatures, leaving all the important nutrients and live enzymes intact.
It’s very important to nourish, balance, and rejuvenate your body and your health with a daily serving of the wholesome nutrition found in Greens First Phytonutrient Powder. It’s not only delicious, invigorating, and stimulating; Greens First also aids in the maintenance of a highly alkaline body, which is vital for optimal health and well-being. It’s rich in alkaline nutrients from fruits and vegetables that support balanced pH levels, with only 40 calories and 6 grams of carbohydrates per serving!
Greens First provides the benefits of real food but makes the process so much easier. It can be difficult, time-consuming, and expensive for patients to maintain a nutrient-dense diet filled with an array of different fresh produce. Greens First helps them fill the gap between what they eat and what they should eat by combining the benefits of over 15 servings of more than 49 different fruits and vegetables into one delicious and easy-to-mix scoop of powder. All of the important nutrients and live enzymes are kept intact because all of the fruits and vegetables in Greens First are juiced, then spray dried at low temperatures.
A healthy gut microbiome and proper digestion are key to overall health and wellbeing, with deficiencies in gut health being linked to increased inflammation and disease risk. Greens First is not only gentle on the digestive tract, but it also actively promotes gut health with probiotic bacteria and digestive enzymes. It contains inulin fiber as well, a prebiotic soluble fiber that lowers blood sugar and helps the microbiome thrive by feeding the “good” probiotic bacteria while also slowing digestion to promote healthy bowel movements.
Protein Is King!
Dream Protein is a unique hormone-free whey protein. A clean protein, such as Dream Protein, starts with hormone-free whey from “meadow fed” New Zealand cows who are not given any rBGH or BST hormones. The whey undergoes ultra-low temperature processing, which is beneficial because the protein is not de-natured from an extensive heat treatment, allowing Dream Protein’s whey isolate to provide all of the essential and non-essential amino acids with 20 grams of protein per serving! It also contains a soluble fiber that has been shown to encourage growth of favorable bacteria in the gut, which helps to strengthen the immune system, assist in the digestion of food, and promote regularity.
Dream Protein is low carb and low fat, with no added sugar and only 90 calories per scoop. Despite all of that, it still delivers 20 grams of protein per scoop. A gram of protein is typically estimated to be 4 calories, so that means that protein accounts for about 80 out of the 90 calories in each serving. Nearly 90%! Dream Protein is a protein-dense formula designed to deliver the nutrition your muscles crave with none of the fillers or artificial ingredients that you want to avoid.
Because of Dream Protein’s low-temperature processing, it is able to keep all of the proteins intact for your body to utilize. It supplies the full spectrum of essential and non-essential amino acids in every scoop, plus naturally-occurring bioactive compounds like “immunoglobulin” (IgG), which are antibodies that support a healthy immune response, “lactoferrin” (LF), an anti-inflammatory with immune-supporting benefits, and “glycolmacropeptides” (GMP), which have been shown to support weight management and reduce leptin resistance and adipose tissue.
FOS, a natural soluble fiber that is in Dream Protein, supports gut microbiome health, which can have a positive impact on the strength of the immune system. Dream Protein also contains naturally-occurring bioactive compounds from whey called IgG and LF that have been found to support a healthy immune response as well as decreased inflammation (inflammation can be a sign of an overactive immune system attacking itself).
Dream Protein Plant-Based
If you’re looking for a plant-based protein, Greens First has created a breakthrough product in plant-based nutrition, with 14 grams of USDA-Certified Organic and Non-GMO plant-powered protein per serving.
Dream Protein Plant-Based unique vegan recipe consists of a blend of organic pumpkin, organic pea, and organic hemp protein to provide a complete amino acid profile. Dream Protein Plant-Based combines a nutritious inulin fiber that has been clinically proven to improve gut and heart health, to create a proprietary formulation with outstanding taste and a creamy texture.
With 14 grams of vegan protein per serving, Dream Protein Plant-Based leads the way among vegan proteins. The three different vegetable sources of protein create a strong amino acid profile that mixes well into any beverage without adding a grainy texture. It’s gently sweetened with organic stevia and natural flavors for a delicious protein without sugar and has added fiber from oat bran powder to help improve cholesterol levels and support gut health.
Dream Protein Plant-Based offers a clean, rich, and delicious protein with numerous benefits. Whether a patient uses Dream Protein Plant-Based as a morning shake, afternoon pick-me-up, before hitting the gym, or for weight management, they will love the flavor and texture of this unique blend of plant-derived protein and fiber. It’s sure to satisfy not only vegans and vegetarians, but even the pickiest omnivore or anyone trying to incorporate more plant-based meals into their diet. Patients will be delighted and pleasantly surprised by the creamy richness when mixed with water or their favorite plant or nut milk.
Not All Fat Is Bad for You
By choosing healthy or “good” fats, you can reap the benefits for your mind and body. Fats are often put under this umbrella term, but fats can be very different depending on their source.
Saturated fats and artificial trans fats are unhealthy fats and can be blamed for things like weight gain, increased risk of disease, and clogged arteries.
Greens First Omega-3 850s contain healthy fats that are made up of both EPA and DHA fatty acids, which help to reduce inflammation and promote general health. EPA and DHA help support brain, heart, and joint health, as well as support a strong immune system.
Greens First Omega-3 oil is ultra-purified to remove any mercury, heavy metals, or other environmental toxins, and also refined for maximal EPA and DHA content, resulting in a gentle lemon fragrance rather than a fishy smell or taste.
Most fish oils have contaminants or environmental pollutants passed on from the fish they were derived from. To ensure this doesn’t happen, Omega-3 850s undergoes a unique and extensive purification process that removes mercury, heavy metals, environmental pollutants, pesticides, and oxidative impurities. While removing impurities such as lead and PCBs, we also selectively concentrate EPA/DHA with our PureMax™ Concentrated Purity System to provide the most potent source of biologically active Omega-3 lipids.
Getting enough Omega-3s can help reduce the risk of developing autoimmune diseases where the immune system mistakes healthy cells for foreign cells and starts attacking them. Omega-3 Fatty Acids have been shown to lower the body’s production of inflammatory cytokines, which are associated with an autoimmune response.
DHA is the most abundant omega-3 fatty acid in the brain, and lower levels are associated with mental decline, a symptom of various types of dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease. DHA and EPA help maintain healthy circulation and may even help to decrease blood pressure, which can support brain function as well. Getting enough DHA and EPA has also been linked to a lower incidence of depression.
Increasing a patient’s DHA and EPA intake can help to offset the high levels of inflammatory omega-6 fats associated with Western diets, which are high in soybean and corn oil.
Muscle inflammation and discomfort can be caused by vigorous exercise as well; DHA and EPA may help to reduce muscle discomfort as well as difficulties with range of motion due to a difficult workout. These anti-inflammatory characteristics may also help patient’s avoid age-related chronic diseases like heart disease and gum disease, as well as autoimmune conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, which causes joint discomfort.
Ahiflower Oil Vegan Omega-3 is a truly unrivaled, plant-based, multi-omega source that supports cognitive, joint and cardiovascular health, hormonal balance, a healthy inflammatory response, and radiant skin and hair. Ahiflower Oil contains more omegas and healthier omegas than any other natural plant or seed oil source. Ahiflower Oil contains the optimal balance of omega fatty acids, delivering the health benefits associated with fish oil, evening primrose oil, and flaxseed oil. Ahiflower Oil is also the most sustainable source of omega fatty acids and is grown utilizing environmentally-beneficial regenerative farming practices.
Since SDA and GLA both bypass a time-consuming step involving a liver enzyme, the body metabolizes them far more efficiently than other plant-derived omegas such as Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA), making Ahiflower Oil a far more efficient omega-3+6+9 solution.
Unlike other plant and marine sources, Ahiflower Oil contains the highest level of Omega-3 SDA and an essential & therapeutically beneficial Omega-6, GLA. One human clinical trial proved that Ahiflower Oil is up to 4X more effective than flaxseed, and another showed that Ahiflower Oil boosted levels of ETA, a desirable metabolite that supports a healthy inflammatory response.
