In terms of nutritional powerhouses, there are two vegetables that typically reign supreme: sea veggies and dark leafy greens. We know those bitter greens supply us with healthy gut fiber and antioxidants, and sea veggies are the up-and-coming vitamin-rich vegetables we now can't imagine living without. 

In fact, sea veggies can even bind to heavy metals and toxins in our bodies. "Certain foods can help balance out the toxic hormone endocrine disrupters that we're being exposed to," functional medicine pioneer Robert Rountree, M.D., shares on this episode of the mindbodygreen podcast. "Sea vegetables are one great example of that."

The problem is, according to Rountree, most of us aren't getting an adequate fill of vegetables, especially those sea veggies and dark, leafy greens. That's where our organic veggies+ powder comes in. 

In this member of the mbg supplement+ line, we're offering a greens blend powered by sea veggies to target one of the things we've all come to know and avoid: inflammation.

Our organic veggies+ powder is the only Whole 30–approved greens blend on the market, packed with easy-to-absorb, whole foods. And perhaps even more important is what the product is formulated without—you won't find any artificial colors or flavors, added synthetic vitamins, or FODMAPs in our easy-to-digest blend.

Here's how it works: While our blend primarily includes sea vegetables (think kelp and chlorella) and dark leafy greens (think broccoli and spinach) to promote hormonal balance and support cognitive function, it also includes digestive enzymes that help you break down and easily absorb all the nutrients. There's also ginger and turmeric, touted for their many anti-inflammatory benefits and immune-enhancing properties. Finally, there's cinnamon, prebiotics, and probiotics added to the mix—cinnamon, as we know, promotes healthy blood sugar balance, while the prebiotic and probiotic strains can help enhance the body's digestive function.*

The result? A wonderful, vitamin-rich greens powder that tastes great on any meal, from sweet smoothies to savory soups. You can even sprinkle organic veggies+ on popcorn to elevate your movie-theater snacking, or on a boring salad to spice up the flavor and add a boost of nutrients. 

According to Rountree, a greens blend is necessary for a busy individual who still wants to get in some greens: "A greens powder is a really good alternative for people who are on the go that don't have time to get up and have a big kale salad every morning," he mentions.

And while Rountree has previously added in a scoop of conventional greens powder and a chlorella capsule into his morning smoothies, mbg has taken that step for you by including a variety of healthy sea veggies in the mix. In other words, our greens blend is quite the game-changer.
