Nothing beats waking up and having that, “I woke up like dis” feeling. When one’s skin feels fresh, doesn’t look haggard or tired and radiance just oozes out of pores. Cutting down sugar, drinking lots of water and eating your greens can help with that.
I’m always looking for ways to get more out of what I eat. Adding pure essential oils to my recipes while cooking, consuming super foods everyday and looking to get as many green plant based nutrients as possible into my diet. This is no easy task, even if you eat spinach and kale at every meal.
That is why I started adding chlorophyll to my daily concoctions a year or so ago, which in it’s essence, is green plant blood. Then came along Fountain with The Super Green Molecule.
Launched in August 2013, Fountain offers water-soluble, highly-bioavailable forms of proven health and beauty nutrients in easy-to-take liquid formats. It has become the number one selling beauty supplement at Boots in the UK.
It’s no secret that I love greens, so you can imagine how excited I was when Fountain sent me The Super Green Molecule (concentrated alfalfa chlorophyll, kelp and their Hyaluronic Acid matrix), which I have been adding to my green smoothies. Free from artificial colours and flavours, this molecule is suitable for adult men and women.
At times I feel like I need to inject my body with green stuff, (if only humans could photosynthesise), but this supplement makes me feel less like that and more like “I woke up like dis.” Here is a little more about some of the powerful ingredients in it.
ALFALFA CHLOROPHYLL – Each, teaspoon of The Super Green Molecule provides 40mg of chlorophyll. A potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, the blood of plants, provides the human body with amazing benefits like rejuvenation, better levels of energy and wellbeing. Chlorophyll delivers a continuous energy transfusion into our bloodstream. This replenishes and increases our red blood cell count; thereby delivering increased levels of oxygen which helps to cleanse toxic impurities, improving detoxification, cellular repair whilst having a direct effect on strengthening the immune system.
KELP – Renowned for its ability to hydrate internal tissues, provide multiple nutrients and aid weight management, kelp is included in this molecule because it enables the body to treat chlorophyll like food and absorb the full benefits with ease. Each teaspoon provides 25,000μg of kelp. The unique kelp content found in The Super Green Molecule contains over 40 minerals, 16 amino acids and 11 vitamins and has the ability to balance the body’s pH, which is so crucial for good health
HYALURONIC ACID – Helps regulate and preserve moisture within tissues and delivers nutrients to cell, while also enhancing the tissue’s water retention capacity. The Fountain formula is a vegan-friendly source of pure food-grade Hyaluronic Acid.
The Super Green Molecule can’t be consumed directly, so here is a yummy, nourishing and beautifying green smoothie, that is really easy to make.
1 cup spinach
1/2 cup of almond milk
1/2 cup of filtered water
1/2 cup of blueberries
