Should I Drink My Greens in the Morning?

Did you know that roughly 80% of the US population doesn't consume the recommended daily intake of vegetables?

Packing in enough vegetables to meet your daily requirements can be a challenge, especially if you're juggling a full schedule. 

Consuming  super greens powder is an easy (and tasty) way to turbocharge your diet. It takes the work out of making sure you're getting all the vitamins, minerals, and green goodness you need for optimum health.

If you're new to greens powder drinks, one of the first things to decide is when to take them.

Should you be drinking them in the morning or later in the day? Does it even make a difference? 

Read on to discover the  potential benefits of drinking greens at breakfast, whether you should have them on an empty stomach, and more. 

Should You Drink Greens at Night or in the Morning?

A lot of people like to drink their greens powder in the morning, but this doesn't mean that you have to as well. If you prefer to have your super greens powder at night, go for it. 

Drinking greens at night won't suddenly render them ineffective. You'll still be absorbing all of the nutrients.

Some like to consume greens powder drinks at night because it suits their eating schedule better. For instance, maybe you're following a strict intermittent fasting routine with a small eating window at night. Or maybe you're one of those people who just doesn't like eating breakfast.

Some people also prefer to consume their greens powder at night because they find it helps their digestion. 

The Benefits of Drinking Greens in the Morning

There's no hard rule that says you have to drink your super greens in the morning. But there are a few potential benefits to starting the day off with a dose of super greens powder. 

Boosting Your Body First Thing Can Give You More Energy

Do you struggle with fatigue and energy slumps during the day? Supercharging your system first thing in the morning could help to keep your energy levels more consistent. 

If you're starting your day with a dose of simple carbs, such as a bowl of sugary breakfast cereal, this is a  recipe for an energy crash

Sugar and simple carbs send your blood insulin levels spiking. And what goes up must come down. 

If your breakfast is ratcheting up your insulin levels, they're gonna come plummeting down 2-4 hours later. 

Crashing insulin isn't just bad for energy levels. It can also make you feel irritable and trigger unhealthy food cravings. 

Starting your day with super greens is the antithesis of this scenario. Rewind Greens contain bilberries, which help to balance your blood sugar and keep you rocking and rolling without any insulin crashes. 

Our superfood powder also contains energy-boosting ingredients like ginseng and green tea that are ideal to consume in the morning for a smooth, jittery-free boost. 

Rewind Greens Powder Pairs Perfectly With Smoothies

Speaking of a smooth morning boost, here's another reason why you might want to power up with superfood powder in the morning rather than at night.

Rewind super greens pair perfectly with just about any smoothie recipe. 

Smoothies are a great way to start your day on the right foot. They're nutrient-dense, easy to digest, convenient, and can keep you energized. 

Adding super greens is a simple way to supercharge your smoothie, without making it taste like, well, lawn clippings.

Unless you're a deep-down-the-rabbit-hole wellness warrior (cough, Gwyneth Paltrow), greens powder that doesn't taste good isn't a sustainable option. This is why it's our mission to create a mouth-watering flavor lineup that makes your morning smoothie taste even more bomb. 

Banana French toast anyone? Pumpkin spice?

Pressing Pause on Inflammation

Do you suffer from inflammation? Inflammation levels can be higher in the morning, making it the perfect time to take your super greens. 

Rewind Greens powder is packed with inflammation-fighting superfoods, including:

  • Wheatgrass
  • Milk thistle
  • Barley
  • Ginseng
  • Bilberries
  • Nori
  • Spirulina

Syncing up With Your Body’s Natural Detox Cycle

Kicking your day off with Rewind Greens powder can also help to amplify detoxification.

Rewind Greens powder contains wheatgrass, a hard-working ingredient that can help boost your body's daily detox process. 

Smaller Chance You’ll Forget to Drink Your Greens Powder

If you consume your super greens powder in the morning, there's a smaller chance of forgetting to take it. 

How many times have you left something until later in the day, and then it doesn't happen at all? After a busy day, the couch is probably calling, and making a super greens drink mix might be the last thing you feel like doing. 

Starting Your Day With a Healthy Habit Sets the Tone

Another benefit of drinking your super greens in the morning is it's an easy way to set the tone for a healthy day. 

Kicking off your day with a healthy habit can help trigger momentum for more of the same. 

After a healthy, nutrient-dense smoothie, that morning jog might not sound like such a hassle. That glazed donut at midday? It might look less appealing. 

Supercharging Your Mornings With Greens Powder Might Help You Combat Unhealthy Food Cravings

While we're on the topic of glazed donuts, setting the stage with a super greens juice could also help you combat unhealthy cravings. 

Remember what we said about the blood-sugar-stabilizing power of bilberries? If your blood sugar is stable, this can keep you from getting hangry and reaching for the closest, most refined food you can find. 

Taking Greens on an Empty Stomach

Is it good to take greens on an empty stomach?

Some people like to take greens on an empty stomach, as this can cut down on bloating and maximize absorption in the small intestine.

But these people probably haven't discovered Rewind Greens yet. Rewind superfood powder is packed with bromelain, a protein-processing digestive enzyme that's naturally founding pineapple. 

The takeaway? You can consume our super greens with other food or on an empty stomach—the choice is yours. 

Should I Drink Greens Every Day?

Yes, you can absolutely  drink greens powder every day .

Our greens powder is designed to be able to replace your multivitamin, making it ideal for daily drinking. 

Does Drinking Greens Powder Help You Lose Weight?

Obesity has become a   major health concern here in the US, and empty calories are one of the factors to blame. If you're looking to maintain a healthy weight, incorporating greens powder into your diet can be a great idea.

It's literally the opposite of empty calories. Even though Rewind Greens is jam-packed with nutrients, one serving contains just 20 calories, 0 fat, only 1 gram of sugar, and 4 net carbs.

Get Your Day Started the Right Way With Rewind Super Greens

Drinking super greens in the morning can help boost your body before you even walk out the door by busting inflammation, stabilizing blood sugar, and more. Rewind Greens powder can also be a perfect addition to your morning smoothie. 

But if you want to take your greens powder in the afternoon, evening, or any other time, feel free!
