A common question we get here at The Healthy Chef is what the difference is between our Organic Superfood and Everyday Greens. Both are wholefood, plant-based supplements that offer essential nutrients for optimum health + wellbeing. They are also both free from artificial sweeteners and flavours, cheap fillers and are gluten-free.
Both products will help to support gut health, detoxing and wellbeing. The different ingredients makes each have specific benefits, read more below about how each one can help you.
Difference No# 1
INGREDIENTS + FLAVOUR
There is a different mix of wholefood ingredients within each blend.
Our Organic Superfood features 10 organic fruits + vegetables, making it perfect to top up alongside a balanced diet if you find it difficult to get your daily recommended intake. It contains Jerusalem Artichoke which acts as a prebiotic (which we go into below), vegetables like beetroot, kale, spinach and carrot, alongside fruits like Acai berry, Maqui berry, grapes and apples. The unique blend has a beautiful berry flavour, that's all completely natural and free from any artificial sweeteners.
Our Everyday Greens is a blend of alkalising leafy greens such as kale, wheatgrass, alfafa grass and spinach combined with pineapple to give it a subtle tropical flavour, which makes it the tastiest option to get your daily greens. This low FODMAP blend also features papaya and lemon, as well as rosemary and turmeric extract to give you a nutritional boost without an of the bloating or discomfort.
There is very little cross-over in the ingredients between the two, so by taking both you are maximising the amount of nutrients you consumer by including a wider range of nourishing vegetables and fruits.

PREBIOTIC vs PROBIOTIC
You may know that probiotics are 'good' bacteria that can benefit your gut health, but to clarify the difference with the lesser known prebiotic: these are types of fibers responsible for feeding the healthy bacteria and helping to maintain an environment where the right strains can thrive.
Healthy Chef Organic Superfood works as a prebiotic that helps to stimulate regularity and good gut flora in the digestive system. One important ingredient it contains is Jerusalem Artichoke, which is a rich source of inulin. Inulin is a prebiotic that acts to feed the good bacteria in our large intestines. Whole vegetables also contain prebiotic compounds, so Organic Superfood contains a number of these fibers thanks to the 10 x organic fruits and vegetables within the blend.
Healthy Chef Everyday Greens contains probiotics, offering 4 strains of probiotics alongside the goodness of dark leafy greens. They play an important role in maintaining healthy gut function. supporting nutrient absorption into our bloodstream and assisting our immune system.
For this reason, it's great to take both Organic Superfood and Everyday Greens, as one can help support the benefits of the other.

DIGESTIVE SUPPORT vs ANTIOXIDANT BOOST
Everyday Greens has specifically been blended to be a low FODMAP mix, with the addition of Bromelain, which is a digestive enzyme that not only assists with digestion process, but studies also show that it can assist the body to fight pain and swelling We've also added L-glutamine, which is an amino acid that helps to restore the gut lining. Together, these ingredients create a highly beneficial blend for supporting gut health.
On the other hand, thanks to the antioxidant-rich ingredients like Acai and Maqui berries, Organic Superfood is a great source of antioxidants, with each serve measuring at 10,000+ in activity by Oxygen Radical Absordence Capacity (ORAC), which is the standard by which antioxidants are measured.
Antioxidants play an important role in helping the body fight off free radicals and can have a role in disease prevention. Antioxidants can also have beauty benefits by assisting with brightening the skin.

MIXING THE TWO PRODUCTS
As you can see, both blends have distinct benefits and many of our customers find it useful to incorporate both Everyday Greens and Organic Superfood into their daily regime.
Both are delicious ways to supplement your diet, and if you're already a fan of one product, adding the second product into the mix could amplify the benefits you experience.
Organic Superfood is suitable for the whole family, even children, and is a great way to make sure they get more nutrients from their diet while still ensuring they get a delicious experience. Due to the addition of L-glutamine in Everyday Greens, this is considered a sports supplement and may not be suitable for children under 15 and pregnant women, so be sure to seek advice from your health professional if unsure in these cases about whether this product is right for you.
