There’s a good chance your patients are thinking of ways to live healthier in the new year. Whether they want to reduce joint pain and inflammation, drop 10 pounds, or have more energy, I have a simple resolution that you can offer them that will provide their biggest bang for the buck.
A Simple Resolution
If you could share a way to strengthen their immune system, increase their energy throughout the day, help their brain be sharper and more focused, and help them have a more peaceful and happy mental outlook, would they be interested? Of course!
But what if those benefits involved them making a change in what they eat, say eating 5 more servings of fruits and vegetables every day? Would they be willing to do that? Probably Not!
The most valuable New Year’s resolution you can make this year would be to encourage all of your patients to eat more fruits and vegetables.
For most patients, however, the idea of committing to a fruit and vegetable diet overhaul in the new year is overwhelming, exhausting, time consuming, and frankly unsustainable.
My advice to healthcare practitioners who want to help patients make a fruit-and-vegetable food resolution is to zero in on a simple and easy dietary change approach that’s likely to stick.
And in my opinion, the resolution that is most simple and provides the biggest bang for the buck is to have them take one scoop of Greens First® PRO powder in pure water every single day so they get the nutritional benefits of consuming 54 different fruit and vegetable superfoods.
Greens First PRO, in addition to being packed with a variety of dark green and brightly colored fruits and vegetables, contains naturally occurring vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
Need for Nutrition
In November 2017, a study came out conducted by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention that only 9% of Americans are eating the “recommended” amount of fruits and vegetables a day, and for some reason, even though chronic disease is at epic proportions in the United States, this wasn’t front page news.¹
What happens when our patients don’t eat their fruits and veggies? Exactly what we see happening now; Americans are at greater risk for cancer, heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, depression, and digestive problems. The proof is in the pudding, or lack of eating fruits and vegetables I should say.
Look around next time you’re outside your clinic, do you see what I see? Do you think it’s normal that so many of Americans are obese and in poor health? Do you think it’s normal that nearly half of Americans suffer from heart disease while the heart disease rate in Europe is less than 1/4 that of the United States?
Do you think it’s normal that a generation ago children with Type 2 Diabetes did not exist and now it’s a national epidemic? Do you think it’s normal that people consume so little “real food” with nutrients that could help their bodies fight disease?
Since we know the only way our patient’s bodies can get certain nutrients they need to build their immune system is through fruits and vegetables, this should be alarming to all of us.
High-Quality Superfood Ingredients
Imagine the benefits of patients eating lots of vegetables and fruits every day. Our ancestors ate eight or more times the amount of vegetables and fruits that modern people consume daily.
Even those few patients who do eat 5 servings of fruits and vegetables a day tend to eat the same things all the time. Greens First provides 54 different superfoods that the average patient has never eaten. For instance, here are just five powerful ingredients found in every scoop.
Spirulina Algae in our proprietary Greens Blend is one of the most nutrient-dense foods available. It contains Chlorophyll, which has an alkalizing effect that makes it easier for the body to maintain healthy pH levels.
Broccoli Juice Powder, a major component of our proprietary Certified Organic Vegetable Blend has 8 vitamins, 8 minerals, and vital essential fatty acids. Antioxidant-rich broccoli supports a low-inflammatory and low-allergenic diet.
Barley Grass, a major component of our proprietary Greens Blend, is a superfood nutrient powerhouse that includes vitamins, minerals, amino acids, chlorophyll, and polyphenol antioxidants.
Mangosteen Fruit Powder provides one of the highest vitamin C contents of any fruit, in a potent and bioavailable form. Plant sources of vitamin C tend to have a higher absorption rate compared to synthetic supplements.
Goji Berry, also known as Lycium, is a great superfood that helps boost immunity and support brain, eye, and cardiovascular health.
In addition, taking Greens First PRO powder daily will help to drastically lower the intake of low-quality processed food calories because for most patients it provides a sensation of fullness. When researchers compared people who consumed the same number of calories, they found those who ate more plant foods had a lower BMI and smaller waist measurement as well as less joint pain and inflammation compared to those who ate less produce.
Don’t be fooled by offering your patients just any greens supplement. Greens First PRO provides comprehensive nutrition from whole-food sourced nutrients that provide naturally occurring vitamins and minerals along with enzymes and probiotics, all in one simple daily serving.
