Recently I have been getting a variety of vegetables each week chopping them up and making a blend which I stuff in a blender each day adding it to my morning whey protein shake. I find it hard to consume a lot of raw vegetables daily so this is a good way for me.
Anyways every time I drink this concoction especially with certain green leafy vegetables I get a "buzz", definitely a good feeling and very noticeable. No its not a sugar rush (I dont get these) or anything so mundane. I get the same buzz with even more intensity when I drink a few ounces of freshly juiced wheatgrass (from juice bars that do this). Also back in highschool when the "jucing frenzy" and "the juiceman" were in full force my family bought a juicer and I remember getting the same buzz from juicing mainly lots of dark green vegetables.
Note I do not get the same effect from "green powders" or dried supplements.
Any ideas on what this effect is? Its not vit B5 or something from any standard vitamin or mineral as I have taken them all at high and low dosages.
