First off, I just want to say congratulations on taking the next step toward managing your health!
As you probably know, your health is your most important asset. A healthy body means more than just resisting illnesses. It means being able to be present and active in the many wonderful things life has to offer.
You should be proud of the decision to make our Ultimate Daily part of your routine, and we hope you look forward to the many benefits it can bring.
Back To Basics
Whenever you’re considering ways to keep your body healthy, you should ALWAYS start with nutrition.
Because nutrition is a key foundation of every cell of your body. Nutrients impact your skin, hair, muscles, organs, bones, digestion, immune system, and ultimately, your ability to fight disease.
This makes obtaining the right balance of nutrients essential to ensuring the body is working optimally. And nutritional deficiencies can have a serious impact on one’s health.
In a perfect world, people would get their nutrients from food and consume multiple servings of fruits and vegetables each day. However, the reality is, this rarely happens.
Even worse, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to get the nutrients we need given today’s typical diets, food availability, busy schedules, and nutrient-depleted soil.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), more than 2 billion people worldwide are affected by deficiencies in vitamins and minerals. These deficiencies are called ‘hidden hunger’.
Sadly, in many cases these deficiencies have nothing to do with the amount of food one consumes. A study published in Nature concluded that the current consumption of tasty, yet unhealthy foods is leading to a generation of malnourished people – a growing problem in many first-world countries.
This isn’t without serious repercussions. A study published in The Lancet in May 2019 reported that poor diet is the leading risk factor for deaths in the majority of countries in the world. They found that diets are a larger determinant of ill health than either tobacco or high blood pressure.
And nutrition isn’t just important for our own well-being. It can have a series impact on future generations.
The Good News
There are many small, healthy changes one can make that lead to big results. Starting Athletic Greens is one proactive measure to help achieve better health and can offer extra nutritional support
The purpose of Athletic Greens is not to be a substitute for nutrient-rich foods and healthy lifestyle, but to be a partner alongside a well-balanced diet. Because even those eating a healthy, well-balanced diet may still fall short of needed nutrients.
Athletic Greens helps bridge nutrient gaps and provides an easy, just-in-case form of health insurance in a variety of ways.
Athletic Greens is the most robust supplement available today. Studies suggest that we get maximum health benefits from eating a wide variety of nutrient powerhouses. That’s why Athletic Greens is made up of 75 vitamins, minerals and whole-food sourced ingredients.
We understand that health is dynamic. So we created a comprehensive formula that helps you adapt as your daily needs change due to stress, sleep patterns, or an imperfect diet.
Your Greens provide digestive enzymes, prebiotics and probiotics to help restore and maintain a healthy gut. It’s packed with antioxidants and superfoods, which can also help protect cells from damage caused by free radicals and aging.
In addition to containing superfoods like spinach leaf powder and goji fruit extract, Athletic Greens also has a variety of other components that are “super” even though they may not be labeled as a superfood.
There are also Adaptogens in your Athletic Greens. These are a special class of herbs which may help the body to respond to stress and anxiety. For instance, rhodiola rosea may improve endurance. A couple other powerful herbs are astragalus and ashwaganda which are known to enhance immunity.
Because each person is different, everyone’s experience with Athletic Greens may vary slightly. The length of time before you feel a tangible benefit will depend on various factors.
Individual nutrient needs, and current nutritional status can impact the initial experience of starting Athletic Greens. As the body begins to regulate and replenish depleted nutrients, it is also possible that some may briefly experience headaches or other side effects.
Here are some (of the many) positive impacts you may notice within the first months of starting Athletic Greens:
Increased Energy Levels
Decreased Stress on the Body:
Motivation to improve other areas of your life:
As you embark on this journey, remember that achieving optimal wellness is a lifelong endeavor and not a quick, temporary fix.
