Have you ever been personally victimized by your own hormones? Unpredictable mood swings at the worst times, tender breasts, bloating just before an important event, digestion issues - the list goes on. Sometimes it...
Even if you’re a kale connoisseur or broccoli babe, getting your daily greens, vitamins and minerals is no easy task. We’re leading busy lives and sometimes it’s not always possible to get the recommended intake our bodies crave. So, how do we remedy this without shoving leafy greens with every meal?
One word: supplementation.
While it’s always a good idea to prioritize real, whole foods to meet your vitamin and mineral needs, it’s not always easy. In fact, only one in ten Americans meet the daily recommended servings for fruits and vegetables. And that’s exactly where superfood powders swoop in and save the day. High-quality supplements can be an absolute savior when it comes to upping your nutrient intake.
These delicious powders are a super-concentrated source of nutrients and are an easy way to bridge the gap between eating a bland, not-so-nutritious diet to increase your veggie intake. Most supplement powders are packed with fruits, vegetables, herbs and yum natural sweeteners that actually taste amazing.
And speaking of tasting amazing, Cira has two cult classic supplement powders that are flying off the shelf for good reason. What are those products, you ask? Our delicious Glow-Getting Greens Powder and Reds Powder.
If you’re wondering which one is right for you, look no further. In this article, we’re going to be talking all about both Greens and Reds Superfood powder and the benefits of each.
Cira Greens Superfood Powder
Call us biased, but we wholeheartedly stand by our newest protein powder, Glow-Getter Greens as the best overall superfood powder. Made with a full serving of veggies (including kale, broccoli and spinach) in every scoop, our nutrient-dense, high-quality blend will leave you feeling nourished and ready to hit your next PB - whatever that looks like for you.
Greens include a six-strain probiotic blend that removes toxins from your body, improving your immune system and supports nutrient absorption to boot. So we have to ask, why eat your greens when you can drink them instead? Especially when it comes in the drool-worthy flavor of appletini. Yum!
Glow-Getter Greens helps improve gut health, digestion, immune support, energy, and gives an antioxidant boost. Add to your smoothie or drink on its own.
Does it pass the nutrition test? Well, let’s break down the impressive hero ingredients, shall we?
TruServ® Organic Greens Blend
Every 2 grams of TruServ® provides the equivalent of 1 serving of whole green vegetables in the form of organic spinach, organic broccoli, and organic kale. No excuses, ladies – drink up to help meet your daily 5+ servings of veggies!
Cira Greens provides some of the most nutrient-dense vegetables on the planet, including organic spirulina, chlorella, spinach, kale, broccoli, carrots, and wheatgrass. Each of these superfoods packs essential vitamins, minerals, and gut-boosting prebiotics to keep your mind and body in harmony.
Six-Strain Probiotic Blend
Probiotics are friendly microorganisms that colonize the lining of your gut and support nutrient absorption, regulate immune function, facilitate toxin removal, and defend against not-so-friendly bacteria.
We love how passionate our customers are about our products. Here’s what some of them had to say about our Greens Superfood Powder.
“I was really surprised at the greens taste, in the best way! The prior attempts I've had with other brands is not possible to get past 2 sips but with this apple one it's no problem. I feel it has helped my bloating and great to get nutrition value as well. Try it for sure!” - Felicia
“I simply add one scoop of this every morning to my water and it energizes me. It’s a nice break from coffee too. And I feel confident that I am getting all the necessary nutrients.” - Christie A
“I'm not gonna lie, the packaging is what really drew me to the product, but since I tasted it I'll never have another greens product again. Best tasting greens ever!!” - Violet F
The bottom line? We love Greens. However, that’s not to say that you never have to eat another green veggie again. A diet rich in whole, plant-based foods will always trump powders. But when it comes down to convenience and ease, we agree that high-quality and tasty powders are the way to go.
They’re convenient and an easy way to consume nutrients and hard to find ingredients (I.E spirulina) on a daily basis. Green powders also serve as a great pick-me-up in the morning or afternoon slump, and can help with detoxification and digestion.
Cira Glow-Getter Reds Superfood Powder
Beyond its amazing nutrition profile, Reds Superfood Powder allows you to easily access high-quality nutrients, vitamins and antioxidants in just one scoop. This will ensure you get your daily recommended veg without having to tirelessly cook during those busy adulting days of yours. What’s more? Glow-Getter Reds helps improve heart health, increases antioxidant capacity and supports your digestive tract.
This antioxidant-rich formula promotes sustained physical energy and supports mental performance. Packed with nutrients to help keep your blood vessels flexible, reduce inflammation and control your blood sugar levels, Reds is the polyphenol powder that you can’t get enough of. It’s the (sugarfree) cherry on top of your daily nutrition intake.
Feel free to grab a scoop of Reds and add it to 10-12 oz of water once or twice daily to reap all the juicy, nutritious benefits. Let’s have a closer look at the hero ingredient list.
