K-POW Greens Ingredient Breakdown

Greens Blend

Every serving of K-POW Greens is loaded with eight grams of greens coming from:

  • Organic kale powder
  • Spirulina powder
  • Organic wheat grass powder
  • Organic spinach powder
  • Organic alfalfa powder
  • Organic barley grass powder
  • Organic chlorella
  • Organic parsley leaf powder
  • Organic broccoli powder
  • Organic beet root

Every ingredient in this blend provides you with their own unique benefits. But one thing that they all have in common is their color which is attributed to chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is a color pigment that allows the plant to obtain energy from sunlight. Therefore, chlorophyll is essential for their survival. Although chlorophyll isn’t essential for human’s survival, it can provide you with numerous health benefits.

Within the human body chlorophyll can activate phase two enzymes such as glutathione, catalase, and superoxide dismutase which play an important role in your body’s internal antioxidant defense system.1 Antioxidants are compounds that inhibit oxidation and free radical production. Free radicals are unstable molecules that can damage cells; thus, leading to various health issues.1

Regarding performance, phase two enzymes can also reduce lactic acid levels; therefore, improving recovery and performance. Lastly, greens can help naturally boost energy levels and increase vitality.2There are numerous benefits for consuming a variety of greens, which is why we turned them into a convenient and tasty supplement for everyone to enjoy.

SL14™ Probiotics Blend

Probiotics consist of microorganisms that can be consumed to increase the amount of good bacteria in your gut. Probiotics are naturally found in some foods such as yogurt, kimchi, and pickles. However, it's quite challenging to get enough probiotics from food alone, so supplementing with a high-quality probiotic blend can be very beneficial.2

Since probiotics are so crucial for optimal gut health and immune system function, we included 5 billion CFUs of a comprehensive probiotics blend in K-POW Greens. SL14™ is a clinically proven probiotics blend that contains 14 unique strains including:

  • Lactobacillus acidophilus
  • Lactobacillus plantarum
  • Lactobacillus fermentum
  • Lactobacillus salivarius
  • Lactobacillus casei
  • Lactobacillus paracasei
  • Lactobacillus rhamnosus
  • Lactobacillus gasseri
  • Bifidobacterium bifidum
  • Bifidobacterium breve
  • Bifidobacterium longum
  • Bifidobacterium infantis
  • Bifidobacterium lactis
  • Streptococcus thermophilus

Research shows that daily consumption of probiotics may support your immune system, help lower your cholesterol levels, reduce gastrointestinal distress, and decrease inflammation.2

DigeSEB™ Digestive Enzyme Blend

If you’re familiar with K-POW Nutrition Vegan Protein, then you’ve seen this ingredient before and know how it’s beneficial. Digestive enzymes help your body break down and absorb nutrients. They can also reduce gas, bloating, and gastrointestinal discomfort.3

DigeSEB™ is a proven and effective digestive enzyme blend from Specialty Enzymes & Probiotics which includes:

  • Amylase
  • Lactase
  • Proteases I & II
  • Lipase
  • Cellulase

DigeSEB™ promotes optimal digestion and nutrient absorption, so you can get the most out of the foods you're consuming including the other ingredients found in K-POW Greens. DigeSEB™ is just one of the many things that makes our greens supplement different from the rest.3

CocOganic™ Coconut Water Concentrate

To promote hydration, we added 500 milligrams of CocOganic™ an organic freeze-dried coconut water powder that’s highly soluble. Coconut water is naturally rich in electrolytes including magnesium and potassium. Since electrolytes play a crucial role in hydration, muscle contractions, and nerve impulses it’s important to consume enough of them for optimal performance and health.4

Coconut water also contains a high amount of B vitamins, minerals, trace elements, enzymes, antioxidants, and phytonutrients that provide your body with an abundance of health benefits. Coconut water is the richest dietary source of cytokinins which is a plant hormone that possesses anti-aging properties. Lastly, coconut water has an alkalizing effect on the body which can help restore natural pH levels. As you can see, coconut water’s benefits go far beyond just hydration.4

KSM-66® Organic Ashwagandha Extract

KSM-66® is a branded, full-spectrum, organic ashwagandha extract made by Ixoreal Biomed.  Ashwagandha, also known as Withania somnifera, is a plant that’s known for its adaptogenic properties. In other words, consuming ashwagandha helps users adapt to and overcome stress.5

KSM-66® is known as the ashwagandha extract with the highest concentration of bioactive compounds, such as withanolides, and the most extensive scientific research supporting its efficacy and safety.5

Research shows that KSM-66® may help:

  • Lower stress, anxiety, and cortisol levels
  • Promote memory and cognitive function
  • Improve endurance, strength, muscle growth, and recovery
  • Enhance testosterone levels in men5

Other Ingredients

The following ingredients are added to improve the flavor and mixability of K-POW Greens:

  • Natural flavors
  • Silicon dioxide
  • Citric acid
  • Stevia leaf extract
  • Monk fruit extract

Keep in mind that this list may vary slightly depending on the flavor.

How to Use K-POW Greens

For optimal results mix one scoop, or ten grams, of K-POW Greens with six to eight ounces of cold water and consume daily. You can take K-POW Greens anytime of the day, but we recommend consuming it prior to breakfast to help improve the digestion and absorption of your meal. 

K-POW Greens can be taken on its own or you can also mix it with Vegan Protein to make a smoothie as well as Natural BCAAs to add some extra flavor. As always, find what works best for you and share your concoctions with us on social media!

Flavors

One of the most challenging aspects of developing a greens supplement is flavoring! Although it’s much easier and cheaper to flavor any supplement with artificial sweeteners and flavors, we took the path less traveled by and stuck with all-natural ingredients.

After experimenting with several different flavor profiles, we discovered lemon works extremely well with greens. Our Lemon Greens is light, refreshing, and just sweet enough to disguise the bitterness of greens. Although Lemon is the first flavor we are launching with, more flavors will be added to the menu so stay tuned.

Stacking Options

K-POW Greens can be taken on its own, but it also stacks well with:

Level Up with K-POW Greens

Greens supplements are not meant to replace fruits and vegetables or make up for a poor diet. You should still aim to consume two to three servings of fruits and vegetables per day along with healthy fats, carbohydrates, and protein.

K-POW Greens is a comprehensive greens supplement that you can add to your supplement stack to further level up your nutrition. K-POW Greens will not only supply your body with an abundance of micronutrients, phytonutrients, and antioxidants. But it will also help you break down and absorb the nutrients your body is getting from the rest of your diet.
