What are 'greens' good for? Saw the above link and read all the fancy horticultural names...but I dont' have a clue. Someone help enlighten me on this please. I'm no expert and I am sure Detox or Tomato would explain better than I but here goes (appologies if I'm wrong).
Greens are basically a whole food alternative to vitamins and minerals tablets. They are basically a variety of fruits and veg (some real 'super veg') that supply a wide range of vits and mins but because they are whole food just ground down its is suggested they are much more bio-availble when your body trys to absorb them. As well as this there are a plethora of phytonutrients within plants that are still being discovered and our bodies kind of like, these aren't found in standard vit pills.
They are oretty much considered a cure all for everything depending on who you speak to but the general principle is that its a supplement to the general western diet that is lacking in good fruit and veg sources.
They came to attention in MMA through Randy Couture and his adoption of an akalysing diet. In short the western diet is far too acidic and our bodies don't like that and crave alkaline foodstuffs (just so happens that leafy greens are perfect for this) so greens powders provide an alakine load which helps offset the acidic red meat and dairy diet most of us have. This has many many benefits one of which is increased energy levels.
All good in theory I won't comment on practical applications but I will say everything that is suggested about them makes perfect sense to me and I really do fancy trying some finally.

As a semi-cockney market trader Cheers is still common venicular. However I haven't used Guvna unless talking to specific people, such as Guvna on here for example.
The majority of market stalls try to capitilise on the OAP £ so, Thankyou Sir/Madam is basically my automatic reply. Cheers mate is left for the younger customer, only recently I have developed enough confidence and think I am old enough where it doesn't seem strange; to say 'sweetheart' and 'darling' to some girls/ladies when they pay.
Its all very complex
