February 09, 2017

Will Vargas is a movement coach and neuromuscular therapist (also known as @will_mcs on Instagram); known for his amazing body weight strength, especially on the rings.  He also leads a healthy lifestyle by incorporating a balanced diet and educating others on the benefits of proper nutrition.

Will offers his advice on how to supplement your diet with super-greens, helping you to get the most from your training and improve your overall health.

What are Super-Greens?

What are super-greens?  Well, superfoods are highly nutritious, whole foods that offer a wide arrange of essential micronutrients in high quantities, such as minerals and vitamins that we need for our bodies to be in optimal health and stay free of disease.

Super greens not only provide high levels of nutrients, but they also contain potent and unique healing properties that can protect our immune system and combat free radicals that can harm us.

In addition, super greens tend to be low in calories, are easy to integrate into almost any diet (low-carb, dairy free, to paleo, gluten free).

Why Do You Need Super-Greens?

The general cause of obesity is because we are overfed and undernourished. We eat the wrong things. The average American is obese. Our diets consist of high levels of sugar, white starches that are processed, high levels of saturated fats and preservatives that contain harmful chemicals.  

All of this has a dramatic effect on our bodies, not just obesity, but chronic disease, digestive problems and inflammation. This can create a compound effect of health problems that can drastically harm your health and ultimately compromise your well-being and overall quality of life.

Super greens have the ability to reverse some of the causes of declining health by neutralizing inflammation and in some cases reversing cell damage.

Some of the Most Potent Super Greens:

Spirulina a type of blue-green algae found in the wild in warm lakes and oceans. It is rich in many beneficial vitamins and essential nutrients, which is why it has become such a popular superfood. Spirulina is a complete protein, meaning it contains all 9 essential amino acids plus ten times the amount of beta carotin found in carrots.

Chlorella, similar to Spirulina (Blue-green algae) studies have shown that chlorella benefits the entire body by supporting healthy hormonal function, promoting cardiovascular health, helping to negate the effects of chemotherapy and radiation, lowering blood pressure and cholesterol, aiding in the detoxification of our bodies, supports our immune system, promotes weightless and can lower blood sugar.


How Do I Incorporate Super Greens?

Whole food supplements and compressed juices are common, however, the taste may be why most people shy away.  Enduropacks offers a specific blend of Super greens in their EnduroGreen Mutli-Vitamin in a simple to take pill format.  The green food daily multi-vitamin is comprised of a perfect blend of important vitamins and minerals made with organic and NON-GMO, vegetable based ingredients.
