How Huel Daily Greens can help you

Energy Metabolism

There’s more to supporting energy levels than running off caffeine. Huel Daily Greens is packed with nutrients to support energy metabolism.

1. Iron

Plays a role in energy production and helps maintain healthy energy levels.

As we know, iron is important for the production of haemoglobin, which allows red blood cells to carry oxygen all over the body including the muscles and the brain. When iron levels are low, the muscles and brain may not receive enough oxygen, leading to fatigue and weakness.

Each Huel Daily Greens serving is high in iron and provides 39%* of the recommended daily intake.

2. Niacin (or vitamin B3)

Helps convert nutrients into energy that cells can use.

Niacin, a B-vitamin, assists several enzymes in converting food into adenosine triphosphate (ATP), a coenzyme that works with other enzymes to transfer energy to cells.

Each Huel Daily Greens serving is high in niacin and provides 119%* of the recommended daily intake.

3. Vitamin B12

Helps convert food into (cellular) energy.

While B12 doesn't directly provide energy, it does give the body the tools it needs to convert food molecules into energy. Deficiencies in vitamin B12 can result in diminished energy and exercise tolerance, together with fatigue and shortness of breath.

Each Huel Daily Greens serving is high in vitamin B12 and provides 212%* of the recommended daily intake.

4. Riboflavin (or vitamin B2)

Supports cellular energy production.

Riboflavin, aka vitamin B2, is an essential vitamin that the body uses to metabolise carbohydrates, fats, and protein into glucose for energy. In addition to supporting energy, the vitamin also functions as an antioxidant. It’s found in a lot of dairy products, but can also be sourced from spinach and mushrooms.

Each Huel Daily Greens serving is high in riboflavin and provides 22%* of the recommended daily intake.

When it comes to immunity, it pays to eat your greens. Huel Daily Greens is packed with vitamins and nutrients that can help keep your defences strong.

1. Vitamin C

Supports a healthy immune system.

Several foods in Huel Daily Greens are rich in vitamin C, including strawberries and raspberries, with each serving of Huel Daily Greens containing 531%* of the recommended daily intake.

2. Vitamin A

Helps support a healthy immune system.

An antioxidant, vitamin A helps safeguard immune cells from harm caused by free radicals. It also impacts the quantity and performance of immune cells while deficiency in vitamin A may increase the risk of infection. 

Each Huel Daily Greens serving is high in vitamin A and provides 116%* of the recommended daily intake.

3. Vitamin E

Important for a properly functioning immune system.

Vitamin E offers immune support by supporting the growth of T cells, which help fight infection. It does this by fighting against infected cells and activating other immune cells for an effective immune response.

Each serving of Huel Daily Greens contains 167*% of the recommended daily intake of vitamin E.

4. Zinc

Supports the proper functioning of the immune system.

An essential mineral, zinc helps protect immune cells from oxidative damage and helps to generate new immune cells. It also contributes to cellular repair and supports the gut lining.

Healthy Hair, Skin & Nails

Nourishing your body from the inside out is key to healthy hair, skin and nails. Discover key nutrients and ingredients within Huel Daily Greens that can support the body’s natural repair process, support collagen production and provide antioxidants for cell protection.

1. Zinc

For healthy skin, hair and nails.

Zinc, a vital mineral, aids in maintaining skin health by facilitating effective wound healing and reinforcing the integrity of the skin barrier. Additionally, its anti-inflammatory properties contribute to alleviating skin irritation and redness linked to specific skin conditions. Zinc plays a crucial role in keratin synthesis, the primary protein constituting hair, and is instrumental in the proper development of nail cells, fostering the creation of the nail plate.

Huel Daily Greens is high in zinc and each serving provides 150%* of the daily recommended intake.

2. Vitamin A

Helps support healthy skin.

Vitamin A is an essential micronutrient crucial for promoting the healthy growth and differentiation of skin cells, touted to help maintain skin texture, prevent dryness, and regulates the natural skin oil (sebum) important for maintaining skin hydration. Vitamin A and its precursors such as beta-carotene act as antioxidants and can help fight free radical damage and redness caused by sun exposure.

One of its active forms, retinol, is becoming a popular ingredient to use in skincare products because of its believed effectiveness in promoting skin renewal. In Huel Daily Greens we use a food-stable source, retinyl acetate. Every serving of Huel Daily Greens contains 116%* of the recommended daily intake of vitamin A.

3. Vitamin C

For collagen production.

Vitamin C plays a vital role in the enzymatic reactions that convert amino acids, the building blocks of protein, into collagen, a structural protein that provides strength and structure to the skin. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that can help protect the skin from free-radical damage.

Each serving of Huel Daily Greens provides 531%* of the recommended daily intake of vitamin C.

Digestive Support 

It's well-known that the foods we consume play a significant role in the health and proper operation of the digestive system. Huel Daily Greens is formulated with essential nutrients to support a flourishing digestive system.

1. Fibre

Helps support digestive health by promoting bowel regularity.

Dietary fibre plays a major role in digestive health. It increases the weight and size of the stool and softens it, making it easier to pass. A high-fibre diet is important for maintaining bowel health and may lower the risk of developing haemorrhoids and small pouches in the colon (diverticular disease).

The bounty of fruit and vegetables in Huel Daily Greens are naturally packed full of fibre, with each serving of Huel Daily Greens containing 12%* of the recommended daily intake of dietary fibre.

2. Calcium

Supports proper function of digestive enzymes.

Calcium plays a lesser-known role in supporting digestive enzymes, serving as a co-factor. It is essential for the efficient functioning of key digestive enzymes, ensuring effective breakdown and absorption of nutrients in the digestive process. 

Each serving of Huel Daily Greens provides 16%* of the recommended daily intake of calcium.

Brain Health

A nutritious diet is essential for not only the body but is also vital for the maintenance of cognitive capabilities and overall mental well-being. The Huel Daily Greens blend is packed with essential nutrients that are fundamental in sustaining brain health.

1. Folate (or vitamin B9)

Helps support healthy brain function.

Like many B vitamins, folate has been linked to supporting brain health and psychological function. Adequate folate intake is required to prevent pregnancy and neurodevelopment complications. 

Folate occurs naturally in a wide variety of foods of both plant and animal origin. Some foods are also fortified with folate in different forms, most commonly the synthetic form, folic acid or the naturally derived L-methylfolate. The folate in Huel Daily Greens comes from both the food ingredients and is also fortified with the natural form L-methylfolate. 

Each serving of Huel Daily Greens contains 344%* of the recommended daily intake of folate.

2. Iron

Contributes to normal cognitive function and supports brain health.

Iron is essential for the production of haemoglobin, a protein that transports oxygen throughout the body via red blood cells. Insufficient iron levels can cause symptoms such as irritability, poor mood, and difficulty with concentration. Iron is also known to play a role in maintaining the balance of mood-regulating neurotransmitters in the brain, such as dopamine and GABA.

Each serving of Huel Daily Greens contains 39%* of the recommended daily intake of iron.

3. Niacin (or vitamin B3)

Helps support brain health.

Also known as vitamin B3, niacin helps to release energy from the food we eat and support normal nervous system function. In regards to brain health, a lack of niacin can result in pellagra, a systemic illness characterised by brain fog and possibly dementia. It’s an essential nutrient meaning that you must obtain it from food. Mushrooms and peas are both good sources of niacin.

Each serving of Huel Daily Greens contains 119%* of the recommended daily intake of niacin.
