7 Amazing Super Greens and their Health Benefits

Superfoods have long been a “thing.” But have you ever heard of super greens? 

It’s easy to guess what they are. If you guessed a superfood that is green, then you guessed right! Like superfoods, super greens are packed full of important nutrients. Of note, super greens have invaluable health benefits, too. 

Read on to learn about some of the best super greens, what they can do, and where you can find them.

Dr Tobias Health Tip: we’ve combined all of these in our brand new Organic Greens Complex formula for the ultimate super greens boost!

Alfalfa

It’s not just for cows! Alfalfa is a powerful super green notably rich in vitamins and minerals, which means it’s great for people, too.

Research shows alfalfa is rich in antioxidants. These can help protect the body in many ways. It also has anti-inflammatory, immune-boosting, and anti-cancer effects. In ancient times, alfalfa was taken to strengthen the bones and nervous system.

Barley Grass

If you’ve already heard of wheatgrass, barley grass is the next big thing. Like the super green alfalfa, it’s also really rich in nutrients— including antioxidants that make it great for boosting immunity and reducing cancer risk.

Barley grass is also rich in amino acids, which are nutrients that are vital to vegan and vegetarian diets. Traditionally, barley grass was used to support detoxification, blood cleansing, and digestive healing.

Broccoli

Is it an ordinary table vegetable? Or the most powerful super green in the world? The right answer: it’s both!

Broccoli is widely researched for so many health benefits that it makes other vegetables pale in comparison. These benefits include improved heart health, improved digestive health, antioxidant benefits, liver-protective benefits, and so much more.

Kale

You’d be hard-pressed to find someone who hasn’t heard of this ultimate super green. It’s not just because kale is popular on grocery store shelves— it’s also because it’s a common supplement ingredient!

This leafy green is incredibly nutritious. Full of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants, research shows kale has strong protective effects against cancer as well.

Oat Grass

Though we all know oatmeal is good for you, its supplement version, oat grass (the younger stage of oats) is teeming with health benefits. Turns out that it has especially good perks for brain health, studies show.

Other health properties it may have: boosting immunity, reducing cancer risk, and fighting chronic inflammation in the body.

Parsley

Never underestimate parsley. It’s not just a flavorful addition to salads, soups, or pasta. It’s also a powerful super green!

As a healing herb too, parsley can help protect the liver, support detoxification, reduce diabetes risk, and even provide relief for and improve female health disorders.

Spinach

When speaking about super greens, no one can leave out spinach! This robust salad green has vitamins, minerals, and nutritive health benefits in spades.

Some of these are supporting a healthier metabolism, reducing inflammation, and fighting free radicals as an antioxidant.

5 Things to Consider When Buying Vitamins

Most of us take vitamins to boost our nutrient intake in addition to our (mostly) healthy diets.

However, not all vitamins are created equally, and with our busy lives, it’s easy to overlook the details. To make things easier, we’ve put together a list of five things to consider before buying your next bottle.

1. Are the ingredients non-GMO?

Genetically Modified (GMO) foods are grown using pesticides, herbicides and synthetic or chemical fertilizers. No matter how much they’re rinsed and washed, the residue of these chemicals remain.

Research has shown mixed results as to whether or not GMO foods have negative effects on our health. However, products formulated without chemicals and synthetics are safer for both human consumption and the environment.

Look for the non-GMO seal on a variety of our products including our Omega 3 Fish Oil and Adult Multivitamin.

2. Does it have certifications?

Organizations like NSF International and U.S. Pharmacopeia certify supplements to help ensure the product has been third-party tested for safety and efficacy. These certifications can typically be found on the bottle or box, as seen on our Omega 3 Fish Oil.

Keep in mind, these certifications are optional, but it helps the consumer know the supplement is annually tested by a third-party organization.

3. Is it routinely tested?

In addition to annual certifications, it’s helpful to know the product is tested on a more frequent basis. Our manufacturer tests batch-for-batch to ensure you get the same quality product in every bottle.

4. Where is it manufactured?

As an extra measure of caution, it’s good to know where your supplements come from. Look for supplements that are manufactured in an FDA registered and GMP-certified facility.

What does GMP-certified mean? Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) is a system that ensures products are consistently produced and controlled according to quality standards. This simply means the facility receives announced and unannounced inspections to ensure safety and quality production.

We proudly stand behind our top-quality products and facility. Our products are all manufactured right here in the United States using the finest ingredients from the most reputable sources. Of course, our manufacturer is FDA registered and GMP-certified too.

5. How are the reviews?

Dr Tobias Omega 3 Fish Oil
has over 12,000 reviews on Amazon.com.

Last but certainly not least, read reviews! Reviews are helpful in understanding the experience and results of other customers as well as evaluating the credibility of a company.

Did you know our Omega 3 Fish Oil has the highest number of reviews out of all fish oil’s sold on Amazon? We take supplements seriously and so should you!
