Amazing Grass has been sprouting some of the most vibrant ‘nutrition convenience’ ideas for years, and now their first-of-its-kind Lemon Lime Green Energy Drink Powder is generating a fresh buzz. Organic yerba mate and matcha green tea add a kick of energy to Amazing Grass’s popular Green Superfood blend in this delicious and nourishing powder. By offering the antioxidant equivalent of 7 servings of fruits and vegetables, the Green Energy Drink Powder provides health-conscious consumers with a convenient and energizing means to achieve the recommended 5 to 9 daily servings of fruits and vegetables.
The core of the new Green Energy Drink Powder is Amazing Grass’s popular Green Superfood blend which combines nutrient dense green food concentrates such as organic wheat grass, barley grass, alfalfa, spirulina, spinach, chlorella and broccoli with other ancient superfoods including açaí and maca. The Green Superfood blend also includes an enhanced digestive enzyme and active probiotic blend to improve nutrient absorption. Overall, the unique blend has a high concentration of naturally-occurring carotenoids; phytonutrients and antioxidants that work synergistically to fight free radicals remove toxins and repair damaged cells.
For the majority of people, stress and consumption of unhealthy processed foods can create an acidic imbalance in the blood that can cause the body to store water and build up fat in the arteries (cholesterol) as protection from acidic blood. The rich chlorophyll content and high alkalinity of this powder drink mix helps to combat acidity and restore blood to the optimal pH level. It can also promote healthy circulation, digestion and elimination.
Yerba Mate and Matcha Green Tea are plants that have been revered by ancient cultures for centuries due to the energy, vitality and clarity of mind that they are known to provide. The organic yerba mate in the Amazing Grass Green Energy Drink is sourced from Guayaki (www.guayaki.com), the socially responsible category leader.
Of the six most common caffeine beverage stimulants in the marketplace, yerba mate is the only one that is balanced by powerful nutrition, a natural trio of stimulants and compounds that are nervous system soothers. Yerba mate contains 24 vitamins and minerals, 15 amino acids, 11 polyphenols and a category of phytochemicals called saponins that have been found to stimulate the immune system. A recent compilation of research published in the Journal of Food Science’ concluded that “yerba maté possesses a much higher antioxidant capacity than green tea” and highlights how research has found it to be hypocholesterolemic, hepatoprotective, of benefit to cardiovascular and digestive systems, and to have shown a protective effect against cancer.
Matcha green tea is an antioxidant powerhouse. This Japanese green tea powder made from shade-grown leaves is known to provide ten times more nutritional value and antioxidants than regular green tea.
