GREENS, have medicinal properties that are scientifically proven to help in the prevention of type 2 diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease, and cancer—four of the top ten chronic diseases that kill most adults.  Despite their nutritional importance, greens are not supplemented into many of Americans weekly diets.

You are also invited to attend our FREE “Zumba Kickoff” and “Greens-4-Life” community health panel discussion on Saturday morning, featuring nutrition, wellness, and fitness experts. Only thru education and awareness can we begin to create change in the eating habits of our future generations.

Please share this invitation, and hope to see you next weekend!
