The USDA Dietary Guidelines call for Americans to eat 3-5 servings of vegetables and two to four servings of fruits every day, but most individuals don’t even come close to these numbers. Why do Americans eat so few fruits and vegetables? The convenience factor is a big problem. Buying, washing, and storing fresh fruits and vegetables takes much more time and effort than grabbing a bag of potato chips or a handful of cookies.
It is even more difficult to get enough leafy vegetables than it is to get a wide variety of fruits and vegetables. Having a few pieces of fruit to snack on is easy enough, but it is more of a challenge to eat enough green vegetables.
Mother Nature’s “packaging” of leafy greens was not designed with the modern active individual in mind. Also, her “marketing” strategy when it comes to leafy greens leaves a lot to be desired. Their rather dull taste and coarse texture makes it hard to get excited about getting your daily allowance of greens.
Leafy greens are some of the most powerful antioxidants known and are very rich in Vitamins A, B1, B6, C, E, and K. They are also rich in Niacin and Folic Acid. These vitamins and nutrients play a key role in keeping the body functioning correctly and healthy throughout your life.
Garden of Life supplements, such as the Garden of Life Perfect Food Vitamin Supplement, is one way to make sure you obtain the crucial nutrients that are necessary for your body. Made of healthy ingredients such as whole vegetables, seeds, legumes, vegetable juice, sea vegetables, and sprouted grains, two heaping tablespoons of Garden of Life Perfect Food is nutritionally equivalent to over five vegetable servings.
Perfect Food Supplement, or any other Vitamin Supplement, has done the bulk of the work for you by putting together very nutritious, although somewhat different foods into a powder, that is mixed with water. It is so easy to get all the servings you need of greens in this way, so maintaining an active and healthy lifestyle is easy. Why would you not want that?
