Detox Greens Launch
Sunwink's gone green! Get to know the superfoods that make Detox Greens the plant powerhouse blend it is.
What Makes Detox Greens Special?
A nutrient-dense blend rich with incredible whole ingredients like Celery, Spirulina and Dandelion. Detox Greens has an all-star ingredient list including some of my favorite greens and plants.
Loaded With Veggies
While I always suggest getting your daily dose of fruits and veggies from whole plants (i.e. eating them in their whole form), it can never hurt to add in extra servings of high quality greens. Detox Greens is loaded with beneficial veggies and herbs, this new Sunwink powder has about 1 serving of veg in 2 tsp of powder, making it a great, great, addition to water and smoothies.
Meet the Powerful Ingredients
Sunwink’s Detox Greens contains 7 simple veggie ingredients. Let’s get to know their benefits a little better when you are shopping for them next time in your grocery store.
Celery: High in fiber and rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds, the health benefits of celery are often praised in the wellness world. This juicy vegetable also has a low glycemic index, supporting healthy blood sugar levels during the digestive process.
Spinach: One of my favorite leafy greens, spinach boasts a wide variety of nutrients providing an excellent source of vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin K, Vitamin A, Manganese, Folate, Magnesium, Vitamin E, and more. An excellent source of insoluble fiber, spinach helps to keep things moving in our digestive system which in turn supports the body in a number of ways.
Wheat Grass: One of the original superfoods, wheatgrass is high in many different vitamins and minerals, all of which are important to full body health. In addition to being a nutrient-rich powerhouse, it is also an excellent source of antioxidants and plant-based amino acids.
Spirulina: An excellent source of chlorophyll (the green pigment that gives plants their vibrant shade of green that is also packed with antioxidants) as well as a variety of vitamins and minerals including Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, and Vitamin B3. Thought to support cardiovascular health (as well as other body systems), the benefits of spirulina make it a superfood worth trying.
Dandelion Leaf + Root: Adored for its support of our natural detoxification pathways, dandelion is an herb (and a food) traditionally used to help support digestive health and function. Bitter in flavor and rich in vitamins and minerals (such as potassium), dandelion is one of my go-to digestive herbs, and one I often use with clients.
Supportive To Digestive Health + Function
Full of plants like dandelion (known to help stimulate and support digestion) as well as pineapple (known to be rich in digestive enzymes), this tasty green mix supports digestive health through the power of plants and herbs. Supporting digestive health is a long-term commitment that almost always involves a diet rich in a variety of fruits and vegetables (as well as other foods) to help support this delicate, yet hearty system - keeping it moving and flowing so that we can assimilate nutrients properly and dispose of bodily waste. By incorporating more fruits and veggies into your diet, you’re also supporting this vital system in a variety of other way.
