Do super greens make you poop? - Britt's Superfoods

Do super greens make you poop?


The term ‘super greens’ describes green vegetables like broccoli, spinach, kale and wheatgrass that are low in calories, but rich in vitamins, chlorophyll, minerals and antioxidants. They also contain water and fibre, which are essential for healthy digestion and bowel regularity, so some (but not all) people find that when they increase their intake of super greens, they may poop more frequently.

Our organic wheatgrass juice can also be extremely helpful in maintaining digestive health. It has been proven to help relieve the symptoms of gastrointestinal disorders like ulcerative colitis – and, incidentally, has long been used as a remedy for diarrhoea.

The reason for its efficacy is that it is packed with enzymes which assist in the breakdown of food, helping our bodies obtain the maximum nutrition from a healthy diet, and it contains higher levels of chlorophyll than any other green vegetable, cleansing toxins from the gut without producing some of the unwanted side-effects!

However, if you are aware that you have a sensitive stomach or minor digestive issues, we’d suggest that you start taking it slowly – say, one sachet of raw wheatgrass juice a day – and then gradually increase your intake as your body adjusts to its cleansing action.

Don’t forget, you can always contact us by phone or email for advice on how to consume our delicious wheatgrass juice. We also offer a 110% refund on your first one-month order, if you don't feel the health benefits in one month, so you can order your supply with confidence.
