June is National Fruit & Veggie Month! Low in fat and high in nutritional value, fruit and veggies offer important vitamins and minerals that can fuel your body’s energy throughout the day.
According to Aynsley Anderson Sosinski of Lawrence Memorial Hospital, “Research shows that eating a diet high in fruits and vegetables may help lower cholesterol and blood sugar and prevent heart disease” (LMHhealth.org). So, don’t be afraid to dedicate 3/4 of your plate to vegetables and fruit for each meal!
Here at Purium we celebrate eating your fruits & veggies everyday, but this month we’re highlighting our favorite blends that pack in the nutrients and taste. Skip the tedious prep or juicing processes by simply incorporating these powerful powders into your daily lifestyle.

Greens are essential, but sometimes easy to avoid as we prepare our meals and snacks throughout each day. With Green Spectrum- a collection of sea plants, juiced field grasses and garden vegetables- you can easily get a daily dose of chlorophyll and other key greens. The fact that green foods like Green Spectrum contain chlorophyll is perhaps linked to their many health benefits. You can learn more about how green foods support health here.
Simply mixing 1 tsp of Green Spectrum with juice, water or a smoothie daily may support increased immune system function and healthy pH and oxygen levels. It’s also available in lemon flavor too to squeeze in all your fruit cravings.
