Young Living’s Multigreens
Who needs more greens?? We pretty much all do.
Why Greens Matter
People who eat just 5 servings of fruits and vegetables a day lower their risk of cancer, heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. And a higher consumption of green leafy vegetables has been shown to significantly decrease the risk of breast cancer and skin cancer.
One study found that people who ate 7 or more servings of fruits and vegetables were 42 percent less likely to die from any cause over the next eight years compared to those who ate less than one serving a day.
Leafy vegetables are ideal for weight management as they are typically low in calories. Our bodies were created to be fueled by leafy greens. Leafy greens also help our body to:
-Preserve vision health
-Fuel itself for optimum function
-Boost bone health
Additional Facts & Benefits
Greens are useful in reducing the risk of cancer and heart disease since they are low in fat, high in dietary fiber, and rich in folic acid, vitamin C, potassium and magnesium, as well as containing a host of phytochemicals, such as lutein, beta-cryptoxanthin, zeaxanthin, and beta-carotene.
One study showed that an increment of 1 daily serving of green leafy vegetables, lowered the risk of cardiovascular disease by 11%.
An increase of 1 serving/day of green leafy vegetables was associated with a 9% lower risk of diabetes.
The high level of vitamin K in greens makes them important for the production of osteocalcin, a protein essential for bone health.
The risk of hip fracture in middle-aged women was decreased 45% for one or more servings/day of green, leafy vegetables compared to fewer servings.
Green veggies contain a variety of carotenoids, flavonoids and other powerful antioxidants that have cancer-protective properties.
Just a teeny increase (as in, a capsule of MultiGreens a day) can be *transformative* for your health.
The Dismal Reality
Wanna hear something sad, though? Less than 9% of Americans eat 2-3 cups of vegetables every day as recommended to reap these benefits.
In fact, the 2005 US Dietary Guidelines recommend only 1/5 cup of dark green leafies a day for 9-13 year old kids; sadly only 1 in 500 kids eats even the equivalent of a single leaf of Romaine lettuce a day in the US.
And we wonder why our health is in the state that it is…
