A lot of people simply don’t feel their best from November to February and are at a loss to explain why.
The symptoms of “winter blues” can range from low energy and a touch of moodiness to lowered immunity and picking up the cough that’s going around the office. Could there be a commonality among all of these symptoms?
Gearing Up for Winter
It’s fairly well known that our health and mood can fluctuate throughout the year. The shorter days during winter months, and less exposure to Vitamin D from the sun, account for some of our dip in mood. Plus all of that time indoors, often with less physical activity, sets us up for picking up a bug.
So, what can you do to get more energy, boost your mood and fortifying your immune system against the challenges of winter?
Increase Your Greens
As it turns out, your mom really was right. You need to eat your veggies.
Your daily greens are so full of an amazingly broad spectrum of vitamins and minerals that you can’t help but feel energized and well when you eat more of them. They help to nourish your cells, strengthen your immunity and support cleansing and detoxification.
Make it Simple & Convenient
Do you need an easier way to get a full day’s serving?
We’re not advocates of throwing away good foods for supplements instead, but we do believe a little help is important. It’s difficult for even the most nutritious eater to get 8 servings a day. Combine that challenge with the degrading quality of our soil and the nutrient-depleting impact of cooking and you end up without enough nutritional quality.
Enter green food concentrates.
By adding a simple scoop of the good stuff to your day, you get the nutritional benefits of eating broccoli, Brussels sprouts, kale and dozens of other wonderful foods without having to spend hours every day preparing them.
Green food concentrates are especially valuable for anyone living an on-the-go lifestyle. If you’re raising kids, fulfilling the demands of a busy career or some combination of both, then getting six to eight servings of veggies a day might seem impossible.
Now you can top yourself up in 10 seconds flat.
Have you tried VegeGreens?

What does all of that mean? Put simply, each small scoop of VegeGreens provides the nutrient equivalent of 6 to 8 servings of fresh vegetables.
