Supplements can vary greatly in quality, and some may even be lacking in the natural phytochemicals of the herbs (the crucial protective, disease-preventing part) – unfortunately this means your supplement may actually contain no nutritional value whatsoever!! Luckily, there’s no need to worry when choosing Pukka, as they use only the highest standard of herbs which have been checked to ensure the right level of compounds such as essential oils, polyphenols and flavonoids are present – these not only make the products taste brilliant by adding body and richness to the flavour, but will also ensures you’re receiving all the powerful superfood goodness of the plants.
The powder is so versatile to use, you really can sprinkle it on anything and everything! Drink it straight up, just mixed with water, or simply add to your usual juice or smoothie. If you’d rather change things up a little, then stir some into your morning porridge or chia pudding. Try blending with dried fruit, nuts and seeds to create delicious green raw energy bars, you could even experiment with making green pancakes or healthy cupcakes by mixing some of the powder into the batter! So with the new year already underway, make 2016 your year to go green, feel fabulous and celebrate healthy living with Pukka Clean Greens.
