Health Canada recommends the regular intake of nutritious foods, including vegetables and fruit, that are commonly found in patterns of eating linked with beneficial effects on health. According to a long-term study of health trends in Canada, vegetable and fruit intakes are consistently low. Indigo Greens provides a blend of organic fruits and greens paired with a wide variety of organic vegetable powders to help bridge the gap in the typical Canadian diet. Indigo Greens can be taken as a standalone beverage mixed in juice or water, or used in a comprehensive fruit and vegetable smoothie to give an added boost of phytonutrients from organic fruits and vegetables.
A group of short-chain carbohydrates, called FODMAPs (Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides And Polyols) can be problematic to some individuals. These short-chain carbohydrates are poorly absorbed in the small intestine and rapidly fermented by bacteria in the gut, causing gas and bloating. Individuals who have trouble digesting FODMAPs often have to follow a diet low in FODMAPs, which can be a challenge when trying to eat an array of fresh fruits and vegetables. Each fruit, vegetable and green in Indigo Greens supports those following a low-FODMAP diet.
Organically grown fruits and vegetables have been found to have higher levels of some beneficial antioxidants, polyphenols and other nutrients than their conventionally grown counterparts. In addition, organic agriculture restricts the use of synthetic pesticides, making organically grown produce considerably lower in residual pesticides compared to conventionally grown produce. Indigo Greens is certified organic and uses all organic fruits and vegetables.
Diverse Blend of Fruits & Veggies
It can be difficult to incorporate new fruits and vegetables into our daily diets for many reasons. The shelf life of produce can be short, the amount of time it takes to prepare certain fruits and vegetables can be daunting, and many of us simply return to the familiar, rarely seeking out variety. Indigo Greens contains a variety of fruits and vegetables not frequently consumed on a daily or even weekly basis. Beets, pumpkin, pomegranate and greens like spirulina and chlorella are just a few of the unique fruits and vegetables included in Indigo Greens.
