The power of green magic – part 2

Mark-Livesey - team proto-col with green magic

In our last green magic blog on Wednesday 23rd July we looked at what a product needed to have to be classed as a superfood and why green magic is a true superfood.  We looked at 5 of the 16 nutritionally dense ingredients and in today’s blog we will look at the remaining ingredients.

The ingredients that we discussed last time were Hawaiian Spirulina, Soy Lecithin, CO Enzyme (COQ10), Royal Jelly and Broken Cell Wall Chlorella.  Each of these ingredients are superfoods in their own rights and offer real health and well-ness benefits.

The importance of SPF

Exposure to Ultraviolet radiation also known as UVA (long waves) and UVB (short waves) can have radical short term and long term damage to skin. Whilst UVA penetrates deep into the skin killing off your natural collagen and elastin fibres to cause premature ageing (photoageing) UVB penetrates the upper layers of skin causes redness and burning.  The importance of using Sun Protection Factor (SPF) sun screen products becomes apparent.

Green magic is a blend of 16 nutrient dense superfoods.

There are a lot of food supplements on the market that use the tag ‘Superfood’ and here is why. The Oxford English dictionary’s description of ‘Superfood’ is: A nutrient rich food considered to be especially beneficial for health and well-being.

With every manufacturer believing that their product is beneficial they slap the ‘Superfood’ tag on the label and we all think ‘wow this must be good for me’ and buy the product. Well just hang on a moment, in this ever confusing bombardment of ‘Superfood’ information it is time to read the label and research the ingredients.
