I’m working on a blog post specifically about how I start my mornings and all the things I commit to doing every.single.day. But as I started writing, I realized there’s one part of my morning routine that just deserved to have a blog post all of its own: my greens shot.
I’ve been a fan of greens powders for a long time. Well, that’s not true. I’ve been a consumer of greens powders for a long time. And it was often a love-hate relationship. Because let’s be real, most greens are gross. And the hunt for the perfect one was long and arduous, full of chalky gags or not-so-good ingredients that tried to mask the taste. But I found my perfect one. Meet BIOHM Organic Super Greens + Probiotic.
Reasons I love BIOHM more than (allll) the other greens I’ve tried:
It tastes good.
Seriously. Like, really good. It’s flavored with blueberry and sweetened with monk fruit (a natural, calorie-free sweetener). I genuinely find myself craving the sweet and refreshing taste. But even more than the flavor, it’s smooth. I can down anything with a not-so-perfect flavor, but it’s the texture of greens that always keeps me from committing. That gritty texture that won’t actually dissolve- that you feel as they go down. Ew. I’m honestly gagging just typing that out. I’ve found that to be an issue to some degree or another with every greens powder I’ve tried. Until BIOHM. These are so. darn. smooth. No texture to them at all. A miracle indeed.
It contains a great variety of greens.
There are plenty of powders out there that have a few greens in them. And sure, that’s great. But if I’m going to take something, I want it to pump me with allll the greens I can possibly get. BIOHM packs in spirulina, barley grass, alfalfa leaf, wheat grass, chlorella, dulse, spinach leaf, broccoli, parsley, and kale. And each one offers different nutrients and minerals for my cells. Therefore, max greens power.
It also includes other powerhouse superfoods.
Licorice root helps leaky gut and adrenal fatigue. Milk thistle seed detoxes the liver. Siberian eleuthero root boosts mental clarity and stamina. Beet root reduces free radicals. Rose hips slow aging. Acai supports heart health. Green tea leaf burns fat. Raspberry leaf aids nausea. Blueberry reduces DNA damage. Goji berry improves blood sugar stabilization. Bilberry improves eyesight. (I had honestly never heard of bilberry before this product!) Ashwagandha heals thyroid issues. (Another blog post to come on how I’ve supplemented with it.) Rhodiola reduces anxiety. Reishi boosts immunity. Maca stabilizes hormones. (Why it makes an appearance in my famous Bulletproof Superfood Coffee Creamer!) Bee pollen helps alleviate allergies. Nettle leaf heals eczema. Gingko bilboa improves cognitive health. Royal jelly helps Alzheimers. How much more could you ask for??
AND it includes all parts of the digestive support components.
Most supplements may include probiotics, or prebiotics, or digestive enzymes. But BIOHM includes all 3 together. This is such a genius design because we really need all three parts for proper digestion, so taking them all at once is a cool way to ensure you’re supporting all parts of your system. (If you can’t tell, I’m fangirling over their ingredients.)
It’s HSA + FSA eligible.
How cool is that?? I can’t tell you how much time I’ve spent being so infuriated that my husband’s super amazing health insurance plan will cover the antibiotics or steroid creams docs want to prescribe me, but it won’t cover the proven natural supplements I take or the organic food I buy. It gets my blood boiling. Which makes it all the more amazing that BIOHM is eligible!
So you can definitely mix these powerhouse goodies up in a tall glass of water, but I’ve actually fallen in love with taking them as a shot. I saved these 2 oz shot glasses from a pack of ginger shots I purchased a while back (but you can buy similar ones here) and now I just prep my BIOHM shots every Sunday with the rest of my meal prep. I use a funnel to pour a scoop in, I add in some clean water from my Berkey Water Filter, and I shake ‘em up. Then I stack them all in the fridge and it’s literally the first thing I reach for every morning at 4:48am (yes, even before my coffee). By preparing them at the beginning of the week, it just takes all the work out from having to get them out each morning and pour them in and shake them up. I realize that might sound silly because it’s not that hard, but I’m a huge believer that the more we can automate habits we want to integrate, the more we actually stick to them. And these shots are the perfect example (just like my time-saving Bulletproof Superfood Coffee Creamer).
I’ve got quite the arsenal of supplements and superfoods I use to boost my health and naturally heal my issues, but I can totally understand that supplements can be overwhelming. Which should you take? How do you know which ones are good? How do you not drop your entire month’s grocery budget into all the pricey brands everyone seems to rave about?
I’ve long said if you only take one supplement it should be a probiotic. But I’m replacing that with: If you only take one supplement, it should be the one that packs a multivitamin, a probiotic, a prebiotic and digestive enzymes all in one. Look no further.
