Functional Foods Inc., Long Beach, Calif., says its Green Fit beverages each provide as many as six essential health benefits including protein, antioxidants, fiber, green superfoods, energy and electrolytes. Varieties include Tropical Citrus, Lime Coconut, Pomegranate and Dragonfruit.
“Green Fit is an all-in-one healthy snack, meal replacement and pre- and post-workout drink for anyone who wants to boost energy and improve nutrition,” says Green Fit co-creator John Djerbaka.
Officials say each 12oz bottle contains whey protein isolate, omega 3s, Spirulina, Chlorella, vitamins, antioxidants, fiber and an all natural “herbal energy blend” that provides mental focus without any jittery side-effects. Likewise, Green Fit beverages are low in calories, low in sugar, gluten free, casein free, non-GMO, and contain no refined sugars and artificial sweeteners.
Djerbaka says each Green Fit provides the nutritional equivalent of:
- Protein = Two eggs
- Antioxidants = 10 oranges
- Fiber = 1 1/2 cups of broccoli
- Green Chlorophyll =1/3 cup of peas
- Energy = 2 cups of Green tea
- Electrolytes = 1 baby banana
Green Fit was developed by Djerbaka and Pua Kapu, a married physical therapy team.
