What does your morning routine look like? A quick cup of coffee and a bowl of cereal, or maybe just toast and eggs? Less than that?
Sometimes there's just too little time to put together all the good foods we want in a meal. We know that frustration and this became a driving force behind Genius Greens.
We created Genius Greens to make adding essential greens and superfoods to our routines faster, easier, and tastier.
Putting Genius into Super Greens
What makes a great superfood drink? Zero added sugars and no artificial colors, of course. What really matters are the main ingredients:
Spinach is a well-known green of champions, providing a healthy dose of calcium and iron that helps to keep bones strong and energy levels up. Eating spinach can also be helpful for relaxing the body and mind by supplying crucial vitamins that fuel us when at work or play.
Kale is a classic superfood that is loaded with nutrients while being low in fat content, and what fat there is mostly comes in the form of Omega-3 fatty acid.
Broccoli is another amazing vegetable that can get overlooked as a superfood, despite being remarkably low in calories for its density of protein, fiber, and antioxidants.
Studies into blueberries show them to be plentiful in antioxidants, which can help support healthy brain function and memory. Blueberries are also great for supporting a healthy heart, making them one of the most valuable fruits to include in your diet.
Lion’s Mane is a familiar staple of our Genius Mushrooms, and offers a unique nootropic edge to our superfood combination here. Chocked full of antioxidants and natural compounds that can contribute to brain health, Lion’s Mane partners superbly with our blueberries, greens, and especially our next ingredient…
Sunflower lecithin is made from dehydrating sunflowers and derived from the gum of the plant. It is rich in choline and essential fatty acids. Choline is an important nutrient for brain health, as it is used by the body to create acetylcholine, which helps with maintaining memory, mood, and other cognitive functions.
Last but never least is spirulina: one of the most nutrient-rich foods out there! It is loaded with vitamins and phycocyanin, a natural substance that helps provide antioxidant and anti-inflammatory qualities.
All of that together makes Genius Greens. A tasty source of calcium, potassium, iron, protein, dietary fiber, and antioxidants. Low in calories, high in the kinds of essential nutrients that our bodies need to perform at their best.
As awesome as Genius Greens is, there is one more “super green” that it does not contain…
The scientific consensus is that green tea is the healthiest tea of all, having the broadest impact on bodily health. Green tea is associated with multiple benefits, such as supporting heart health, lowering blood pressure, providing anti-inflammatory compounds, and positively impacting cholesterol and weight loss.
Part of green tea’s advantage over other teas comes from its concentration of catechins, a particularly potent type of antioxidant. Green tea has the most catechins of all teas and a high level of epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), a catechin especially tied to many of the health benefits described above.
EGCG is associated with relaxing effects, too, making it helpful for calming and maintaining focus. L-Theanine, an amino acid found in tea that also relaxes while offsetting caffeine’s stimulant effects, is plentiful within green tea as well.
In its matcha form, green tea is more potent and contains even higher amounts of catechins, EGCG. It also has more caffeine, bringing it closer to black coffee’s amount while still containing L-Theanine. This helps avoid leaving drinkers with shakes from the energy boost.
Our Genius Matcha contains green tea matcha powder from its native Japan and adds powdered Lion’s Mane and Cordyceps mushrooms to further support energy and healthy brain function. The adaptogenic quality of these mushrooms allows them to blend with the matcha to help bring your body back into balance and respond better to fatigue and stress.
The next time you’re considering coffee or something sugary for your morning pick-me-up, give our matcha a try instead!
