Make green your favorite color to drink

Updated on October 17, 2011

Getting up in the morning, most of us feel great after eating breakfast. We drive to work or wherever we need to go and we are set for a few hours. Then the afternoon comes around it feels like we have absolutely no energy. Let's call this the afternoon slump. During the afternoon after using a lot of our energy, our concentration declines as well as our productivity. For a lot of people, this is a toll that has to be dealt with everyday. When most of our energy is drained, it is best to eat brain food. Eat for your brain and not for your stomach. Once the afternoon slump hits, many people consider drinking things high in sugar and caffeine such as soda, coffee, and energy drinks; however, these do not provide any sort of nutritional value and often causes unwanted tension and jitters.

To improve concentration during the afternoon, eat foods with concentrated nutrition.

The absolute best way to teach our brain as well as our body is through consuming super green foods. One way to take in super green nutrition is through a drink. Many stores offer super green energy powders that can be combined with water. The powder includes many types of plant nutrients such as spirulina. All of these nutrients are sure to help you recover from your afternoon slump.

In order for your brain to function properly, it needs specific nutrients that can be found in super green foods. If you consume one super green food a day, you are sure to be able to make it through the day and escape the afternoon slump.

Your body, mainly your brain, needs a lot of vitamins, amino acids, and other nutrients to function properly and at its full capacity. Even though many people eat lunch on a daily basis, it is normal to feel the afternoon slump after eating. This is because the body is busy processing what you ate. While your body is digesting the fats, sugars, and carbohydrates you took in, it is not giving you the boost of energy you need. The body soaks in glucose, which gives you a quick spurt of energy that dies out quickly. If you want to finish your day off strong, it is vital that you keep a balanced blood sugar level.

Eat foods that are helpful to your brain and your body

When you're at work and drinking coffee, sipping down a soft drink or an energy drink, or eating a sugary candy bar, you should try to incorporate a super green shot into your meal. A super green shot is a tablespoon of super green energy powder combined with juice, water, or any other type of liquid. This is important because super green food provides you will all of the nutrients your body needs to make it throughout the day. More importantly, all of the nutrients are concentrated which means that the body can absorb the nutrients quickly.

If you find yourself drinking a lot of sugary drinks, try to incorporate more water into your diet. Water is a very important nutrient when it comes to brain food. If your brain has enough water, your productivity will be where it should be. The brain needs water so that it is able to send signals from the brain to the other parts of the body. Many believe that a soda can keep your hydrated all day, but this is completely false. The body needs pure water everyday and nothing can ever substitute it. Water is so important because 70% of your body is made of your water! Your body works in a water medium; therefore, it is important to drink water.

Hydrate your brain throughout the day

If you find yourself losing concentration and focus a lot, drink a cup of water. It is recommended that we drink 8 glasses of water a day. This is to keep the body fully hydrated. Drink water all throughout the day. You can still drink coffee and eat candy, just make sure that before or after you do, you consume at least a glass of water. A bottle of water on your desk can come in handy. Don't just drink when you're thirsty. Little sips of water here and there are good for the body. It helps your brain and body productivity.

Today, a lot of people work longer hours to make ends meet or just to have some extra money. Life can be stressful and hectic, so it is important that internally we are getting all of the nutrients that we need so that you have the energy to do the things you need to do. Save time and mostly energy to be around friends and family. Productivity in the work place and at home is very important.

Make green your favorite color to drink

Super Green Food powder can be your savior throughout the work day. When you need nourishment and nutrients, super green food powder is sure to give you what you need. You do not need to use the powder everyday, but try to use it at least two days a week. If you really want to test out the powder, drink it everyday for two weeks straight. After these two weeks you will realize the difference in concentration and productivity. Also during this time, add at least three more glasses of water to your daily diet.

Green is an awesome snacking option

Today in the grocery stores, there are many different types of super green food products. The most popular is the powder mix. The mix is strong which in the ends makes your brain strong so that it can complete the functions it needs to everyday. All super green food products are sure to give anyone a boost after using it. The super green products are also affordable.

Feed your body and your brain with the right food and your concentration levels and productivity is sure to improve. If you find yourself drained after work, eat more brain food! Because life is crazy in itself, take some time to consume a super green food that in the end will make your day much better. Super green foods make you feel super; super physically and mentally, who would pass up this chance?
