What Is Native Greens Superfood Powder? Ingredients, Benefits, & Nutrition
Do you remember the first time you were told to eat your vegetables? If you’re like most of us, it was probably before you could even write your name.
We go through life knowing how important it is for our bodies to get our daily veg. This powerful food group can reduce the risk of heart disease, help us live longer, encourage weight loss, lower the risk of type 2 diabetes, and help curb the risk of cancer, among so many other health benefits (1, 2, 3, 4, 5).
In fact, it would be hard to dream up something vegetables can’t do—but keeping your fridge stocked with all the leafy green servings you need is a lot to stay on top of.
What if, instead, you could get a powerful boost of greens—along with heaps of other superfoods that your body needs—in just one glass? Our new Native Greens Superfood Powder can help you do just that.
22 Powerful Green Ingredients to Boost Your Health
Native Greens combines some of the most nutrient-dense fruits, veggies, and superfoods on the planet into one simple powder blend. Read on to get to know the powder’s energizing, health-boosting ingredient lineup—and why each one should be part of your daily routine.
1. Organic Wheatgrass Juice Powder
Wheatgrass has a powerful range of antibacterial, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory capabilities (6). This ingredient can help your digestion and metabolism thrive.
2. Organic Spirulina Powder
The magic ingredient behind the vibrant blue bowls at every smoothie shop is spirulina, a type of healthy cyanobacteria also known as blue-green algae. Spirulina was enjoyed by the ancient Aztecs and is appreciated for its heavy concentration of nutrients. Spirulina is rich in protein, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B3, copper, iron, magnesium, potassium, and more.
3. Organic Alfalfa Grass Powder
This legume has been used as a medicinal herb for hundreds of years. Today, its leaves are enjoyed as a source of vitamin K, vitamin C, manganese, copper, and folate, as well as high levels of healthy bioactive plant compounds to keep you energized (7). Alfalfa may also help lower LDL (“bad”) cholesterol while raising HDL (“good”) cholesterol (8).
4. Organic Barley Grass Powder
This vibrant grain is one of the most important seed crops in the world, and its leaves (called barley grass) are known for their powerful health benefits (9). Barley grass offers up potential benefits like boosted immunity thanks to vitamin A, glowing skin due to vitamin C, and better heart health thanks to its concentrations of vitamin K (10).
5. Organic Spinach Powder
Spinach powder is rich in so many nutrients that it’s hard to even name them all! This coveted green has loads of insoluble fiber, vitamin A, vitamin C, folic acid, iron, and calcium. It also contains vitamin K—in fact, just one spinach leaf contains half of your daily needs of this vitamin (11, 12).
6. Organic Broccoli Powder
7. Organic Beet Root Juice Powder
This crisp-yet-sweet staple has been associated with a potential decrease in blood pressure, and more sustainable energy during workouts (16, 17). It also may help prevent cancer due to its high level of antioxidants.
8. Organic Acai Juice Powder
If you love smoothies, you probably love acai—it just might be the most famous superfruit out there. These tiny berries are found deep in the Brazilian Amazon. They’re known for high concentrations of vitamin A, calcium, and antioxidants, and may help boost heart health and improve your cholesterol (18, 19, 20).
9. Organic Pomegranate Juice Powder
While pomegranates are tough to eat in fruit form, condensing them into a juice or powder makes soaking up their health benefits a breeze. Pomegranates may help curb chronic inflammation, which in turn can help prevent heart disease, type 2 diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer’s, and more (21, 22, 23, 24).
10. Organic Astragalus Extract
This herb has been a staple in traditional Chinese medicine for hundreds of years. It is linked to anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, and immunity-boosting benefits (25).
11. Organic Kale Powder
Kale has more than lived up to its hype: It’s one of the most nutrient-dense foods in the world! This rich green veggie is loaded with vitamin A, vitamin K, vitamin C, vitamin B6, manganese, calcium, copper, magnesium, and potassium (26).
12. Organic Kelp Powder
This sea-worthy anti-inflammatory plant is packed with powerful iodine, which makes it great for balancing hormones (27). Kelp may also help prevent cancer, especially breast cancer and colon cancer, and may help manage diabetes (28, 29).
13. Organic Blueberry Powder
Blueberries are some of the most antioxidant-loaded fruits you can find. Blueberries’ high levels of anthocyanins, a particular type of antioxidant, may help directly raise the levels of antioxidants in your body and protect you from free radicals (30).
14. Organic Coconut Water Freeze Dried Powder
15. Organic Parsley Powder
This popular garnish has superfood powers that are often overlooked. Historically, parsley has been used to help treat and manage conditions like high blood pressure, allergies, and inflammation (34, 35).
16. Organic Chia Seed Powder
These small but mighty seeds have been enjoyed since the times of the ancient Aztecs and ancient Mayans. They have high concentrations of antioxidants, minerals, omega-3 fatty acids, and fiber for a healthy heart, improved blood sugar, and healthy bones (36).
17. Organic Apple Fiber
18. Organic Turmeric Powder
Turmeric has been enjoyed in India for thousands of years for its uses as both a medicinal herb and a delicious spice (39). Turmeric is an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory that may help prevent heart disease, cancer, metabolic syndrome, Alzheimer’s disease, and more (40).
19. Organic Ginger Powder
This spice is loaded with gingerol, which gives it anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties (41). Ginger is famous for its effectiveness against nausea and stomach upset, and it may also help with weight loss (42).
20. Organic Rosemary Powder
Rosemary is believed to aid in digestion, curb inflammation, and promote gut health. It may also help you lose weight (43).
21. Organic Spearmint Powder
This delightfully minty plant is great for relieving nausea, stomach upset, and symptoms of indigestion. It may also help with symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and could help manage hormones (44).
Every single one of these ingredients has a nutritional superpower. Altogether, they’re practically unstoppable—which is exactly why we combined them into one easy-to-use powder.
Are Green Drinks Good for You?
Green superfood drinks are one of the easiest ways to make sure you’re getting the nutritional boost you need each day. You can mix a scoop into your water or smoothie for a daily dose of energy, healthy aging, hormonal balance, and more.
Green drinks like Native Greens Superfood Powder are created by concentrating multiple ingredients into one powder supplement. For many green powders, ingredients are either dried and then ground into powder; or the ingredient is juiced and dehydrated, and then the nutrients are extracted for the powder.
As the superfoods above indicate, green drinks are usually loaded with vitamins A and C, which can help boost immunity (45). If your health goals include antioxidants and anti-inflammation—which help ward off illnesses like cancer and help protect your body from free radicals—green drinks are a great cornerstone habit (46).
One four-week study found that people who took 10 grams of green powder each day experienced lower levels of oxidatively damaged proteins in their blood (46). This means that their blood proteins were better able to help ward off cancer and chronic illness (47)!
Another study found that 10 grams daily of green powder decreased blood pressure by around 8% over the course of 90 days (48). Green superfood drinks may also help detoxify the body by combatting the free radicals that are naturally created by your liver (49).
An Easier Way to Get Your Daily Greens
The US and Canada recommend you consume ½ cup of raw vegetables each day, and to bump that recommendation up to one full cup if you’re eating leafy vegetables (50). The American Heart Association suggests 4 to 5 servings of fruit per day (51).
That’s a lot of fresh food to stock up on, prepare, and potentially even add to recipes every single day.
So what if you just sipped on a green superfood drink daily instead? Fresh fruits and vegetables are fantastic, but if you’re looking for a fast and easy way to take care of your body, all you need is one scoop of powder per day.
The Bottom Line
Green superfood drinks can help you get the benefits of fresh fruits, veggies, and ancient superfoods without the hassle. Humans have been relying on these ingredients for thousands of years to live full and healthy lives—and now you can reap centuries of benefits in just a few sips.
NativePath Native Greens Superfood Powder is a 3-in-1 plant-based powder that combines the world’s healthiest nutrients, superfoods, and superfruits into one simple blend.
