The Ultimate Guide to Green Drinks

With social media influencers posting numerous recipes and brands, greens drinks have emerged as one of the latest health and wellness trends. But with so many superfoods, and greens in these drinks, there’s a lot to understand before you can confidently jump into this trend, and get the benefits. This article is the ultimate guide to greens drinks where we’ll walk you through key ingredients, nutritional benefits, special considerations, and much more.

Greens Drinks Benefits 

Greens drinks have a number of health benefits from promoting well-being to overall health, all in one easy and convenient habit that you can look forward to, every day.

Nutritional Completeness

Greens powders are packed with essential vitamins and minerals from a variety of vegetables, helping to fill nutritional gaps in the diet. This includes vitamins A, C, D, E, and K, and minerals like iron, calcium, and potassium, which are vital for the body's maintenance and repair processes.

Antioxidant Support

With ingredients like berries and green tea extracts, greens powders are rich in antioxidants. These substances combat oxidative stress and may help reduce the risk of chronic diseases, supporting overall cellular health.

Digestive Support

The dietary fibre in greens powders promotes a healthy digestive tract, while included probiotics support gut health, which is crucial for proper digestion and a strong immune system.
Additionally, most greens drinks contain pre & probiotics which aid digestion and gut health as well.

Immune System Boost

Vitamins and minerals, along with specific algae like spirulina and chlorella found in greens powders, can enhance the immune system's ability to fight off infections.

Mental Clarity and Cognitive Function

B-vitamins present in greens powders are essential for brain health and can contribute to improved mental focus, clarity, and memory retention.

Energy Levels

Greens powders can provide a natural energy boost. They contain B-vitamins and iron that play a role in energy production, potentially increasing stamina and reducing fatigue without the need for caffeine or sugar.
This is often further enhanced through adaptogens such as Ashwagandha.

Fitness Benefits of Greens Powders

Greens powders can be a beneficial addition to a fitness regimen due to their concentrated nutrients that support physical health and performance:

Enhanced Recovery

Rich in vitamins and minerals, they can help reduce muscle soreness and speed up recovery time after workouts.

Increased Energy

The B-vitamins and iron in greens powders aid in energy metabolism, providing a sustained energy boost that can improve endurance and performance during exercise.

Supports Weight Management

Low in calories and high in fibre, greens powders can promote satiety and help control appetite, which is beneficial for weight management. Plus, they often contain numerous ingredients that boost your metabolism.

Key Ingredients

Next we wanted to show you some of the key ingredients that the best greens blends include. Usually, they can be categorised into the following categories: 

  • Leafy Greens
  • Superfoods 
  • Fruits 
  • Adoptegens 

Leafy Greens: Spinach, Kale, Barley Grass 

Leafy greens are an essential part of a healthy diet, providing an abundance of nutrients in a low-calorie package. Here are various examples of leafy greens that you might find in greens drinks:

  • Kale: Kale is rich in vitamins A, C, and K. It also contains significant amounts of calcium, potassium, manganese, and magnesium. Additionally, kale is a good source of antioxidants and dietary fibre.
  • Spinach: Spinach is high in vitamins A, C, K, and several B vitamins. It's also a good source of iron, magnesium, calcium, and potassium. Like kale, spinach is rich in antioxidants and dietary fibre.
  • Barley Grass: Barley grass is packed with vitamins A, C, and E, as well as iron, calcium, magnesium, and amino acids. It's also a great source of chlorophyll and dietary fibre.
  • Wheat Grass: Wheat grass is high in vitamins A, C, and E, as well as iron, magnesium, calcium, and amino acids. It's known for its high chlorophyll content, which is believed to have various health benefits.
  • Alfalfa: Alfalfa is a good source of vitamins C, K, and several B vitamins. It also contains minerals like calcium, potassium

They are particularly valued for their content of vitamins A, C, E, and K, as well as other phytonutrients that contribute to overall health. 

Superfoods: Spirulina, Chlorella, Wheatgrass

Superfoods are foods that are exceptionally nutrient-dense, high in vitamins and minerals, and often contain unique bioactive compounds with powerful health benefits. Here are various examples of superfoods you might find in greens drinks: 

  • Spirulina: A blue-green algae renowned for its complete protein profile and richness in B vitamins and minerals.
  • Chlorella: Known for its detoxifying properties, chlorella is a green algae high in chlorophyll, protein, iron, and vitamin C.
  • Acai Berry: A deep purple fruit loaded with antioxidants, healthy fats, and almost no sugar.
  • Goji Berries: Bright orange-red berries that contain all eight essential amino acids and a host of minerals.
  • Turmeric: A spice with a potent anti-inflammatory compound called curcumin.

These superfoods are often included in greens drinks for their potent levels of nutrients and compounds that promote various aspects of health, including immune function, energy levels, and detoxification processes. 

Plus, they’re also loved for their high antioxidant content, which can protect against cellular damage and support overall wellbeing.

Fruits: Blueberries, Mango, Lime, Orange, Pineapple

Fruits are an excellent choice for greens drinks, offering a sweet taste along with a wealth of vitamins, minerals, and fibre, all bundled in a juicy and refreshing package. Here are various examples of fruits that may be included in your greens drinks: 

  • Blueberries: Bursting with flavour, these small berries are high in antioxidants, particularly anthocyanins, which may reduce the risk of heart disease.
  • Mango: This tropical delight is not only rich in taste but also packed with vitamin C, vitamin A, and fibre.
  • Lime: Often added for a zesty flavour, limes are loaded with vitamin C and flavonoids, which have antioxidant and antibiotic effects.
  • Orange: Known for their high vitamin C content, oranges also provide fibre, potassium, and choline, which are key for heart and muscle function.
  • Pineapple: This tropical fruit is rich in vitamins, enzymes, and antioxidants. It's especially known for bromelain, which may aid in digestion and inflammation reduction.

These fruits also act as additives, so you can avoid artificial sweeteners with nasty side effects, such as Aspartame, Sucralose, or Acesulfame k. 

Adaptogens: Ashwagandha, Panax Ginseng, Gotu Kola

Adaptogens are a unique group of herbal ingredients used in herbal medicine that are said to help the body resist stressors of all kinds, whether physical, chemical, or biological. 

Interesting Fact: They have been used for centuries in Chinese and Ayurvedic healing traditions. 

Examples of Adaptogens include: 

  • Ashwagandha: A well-known adaptogen used for its stress-relieving properties. Also can increase energy, focus, sleep, and improve hormone balance.
  • Rhodiola Rosea: Known for enhancing mental and physical endurance.
  • Panax Ginseng: A traditional adaptogen known for boosting energy and reducing stress.
  • Astragalus Extract: Used in traditional medicine for its immune-boosting and anti-stress properties.
  • Licorice Root: Has adaptogenic properties, often used to support adrenal function.
  • Reishi Mushroom: Known as an adaptogen for its immune-modulating and stress-reducing effects.
  • Gotu Kola: Used in Ayurveda for its adaptogenic effects on mental clarity and overall brain function.

They are believed to work by modulating the production and distribution of stress hormones and improving the body's stress response.

Pre & Probiotics 

Prebiotics and probiotics are key components for maintaining a balanced gut microbiome, which is essential for overall health and well-being. 

Prebiotics

Prebiotics: These are non-digestible fibre that serve as food for probiotics. They are found in foods like chicory root, garlic, onions, and under-ripe bananas, as well as in supplements. Prebiotics help to maintain a healthy digestive system by promoting the growth of beneficial bacteria.

Probiotics

Probiotics: These live beneficial bacteria are found in fermented foods like yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, and kimchi, and also in supplement form. They can help to restore the natural balance of the gut microbiome, which is important for digestion, the immune system, and may even affect mood and energy levels.

Working Together

Together, prebiotics and probiotics work synergistically to support gut health, which in turn can influence many other aspects of wellness, from nutrient absorption and digestion to immune function and mental health. Integrating both into your diet can be a key strategy for improving and maintaining a healthy gut.

Incorporating Greens Drinks into Daily Life

Your greens drink is only as good as your ability to stick to the habit. 

That’s why we also wanted to discuss incorporating green drinks into your daily life to help you find a solution that works with your schedule. 

DIY vs a Ready Greens Powder 

One of the choices you have is to do it yourself (DIY) or go for a ready greens powder that’s formulated to include all the whole-sourced ingredients, nutrients, minerals, and adaptogens that you need. 

DIY Greens Powder Benefits:

  • Customisation: Tailor the blend to your specific dietary needs and preferences.
  • Freshness: Select and dehydrate fresh ingredients to ensure the highest nutrient content.
  • Control Over Ingredients: Know exactly what's going into your powder without any fillers or preservatives.

Ready-to-Go Greens Powder Benefits:

  • Convenience: Simply scoop and mix without the need for preparation.
  • Expert Formulation: Benefit from professionally crafted blends that offer a balanced spectrum of nutrients.

Diversity of Ingredients: Pre-made powders often contain a wide range of ingredients that may be difficult to source for DIY.

Which Method Is Best? 

Of course, this somewhat comes down to personal preference, but let our founder explain with a little story: 


“As a business leader, entrepreneur, and philanthropist I don’t always put my health first. I know I’m not alone - balancing work, social and family life can leave little time for self-care. 

After living through a pandemic, not having the time for colds (who does?), and generally needing a little more energy and vitality (like we all do) I looked for a decent multivitamin that would help supplement my diet, perk up my immune system and (hopefully) contribute to my all round health and wellness.

From experience I was familiar with the qualities of each individual ingredient so I developed my own bespoke mix just for personal use that gave me everything I needed in one scoop. I was happy with that. 

Then I spoke to friends who had the same problem of cupboards bulging with pouches, bottles and supplements - that's when I had the idea for Verve. 

Busy people don’t have the time to source and prepare mountains of fruits and vegetables to juice and blend on a daily basis. 

And, unless you’re really passionate and obsessive and you really know what you’re doing then you’re not going to blend your own powder. So, Verve really is the practical, cost effective, great tasting solution to all of that.” 

What is Verve V80? 

Verve V80 is the most nutrition-dense drink on the market, with 80 ingredients and 200+ science-backed benefits. 

We’ve already spoken about the convenience side of things, one daily scoop vs an extra long food shop and blending your ingredients each day, finding the perfect formula, cleaning up, etc. — in that aspect, Verve is a clear winner. 

But Verve V80 isn’t just convenient, it’s also the most nutrient-dense drink on the market, one of the only choices that’s fully transparent, and cost-efficient. 

Nutrition: With 80 whole-food sourced ingredients, vitamins, minerals, and adaptogens, Verve is the most nutrition dense greens drink on the market. You’ll find all the ingredients we’ve listed throughout this article (and many more!) inside of Verve V80. 

Cost-effectiveness: Verve is 24% more cost-efficient than the closest competitor, and we’ve tested them to show that Verve V80 is THE most nutrition-dense drink on the market, with 80 ingredients at high dosages — at a lower cost. 

Transparency: The greens powder market has a transparency problem. It’s full of proprietary blends, which isn’t ideal when you’re trying to hit your nutrition goals. We’re fully transparent, and you can find ALL ingredients + dosages, here

Taste: Verve V80 is infused with real fruit which gives it a pleasant and sweet taste. So it’s not just your most healthy daily ritual, but also one you can look forward to. And that’s why it also contains no artificial sweeteners.
