Singing Changes your Brain


If you spend more time singing you will be giving your lungs a very deserved workout. You do this by activating your abdominal, intercostal muscles and the diaphragm, which stimulates good circulation practices. When we sing, we breathe more deeply which allows for an intake of more oxygen and the release of muscle tension.

3. Builds Community  


Singing in a group has great mental benefits. Group singing promotes social health activities and benefits such as: empowerment, confidence, well being, depression, anxiety and lowers the feeling of isolation.


Have you ever wondered why those who practice singing as a profession or even those who just enjoy singing as a hobby always seem like they are on an incredible high? This is because just by participating in the act of singing has incredible health benefits.

1. Improves your Mood:

Singing allows for the release of the very same chemicals and hormones as sex and chocolate that gives you that sense of calm and relaxation that we all enjoy. It also gives you a boost in energy with the release of endorphins, which make us less lethargic.

2. Lung Workout

4. Clears Sinuses

When you sing, you are naturally cleaning and clearing out your sinuses and respiratory tubes.

5. Therapeutic

Singing has been said to be incredibly therapeutic. With the release of stress and other qualities that can restrict us from happiness, singing allows for a form of release. By animating the mind, body and spirit singing releases us into a freedom that we only experience through the enjoyment of the things we love doing the most.

The benefits of singing regularly seem to be cumulative. In one study, singers were found to have lower levels of cortisol, indicating lower stress.  A very preliminary investigation suggesting that our heart rates may sync up during group singing could also explain why singing together sometimes feels like a guided group meditation.  Study after study has found that singing relieves anxiety and contributes to quality of life. Dr. Julene K. Johnson, a researcher who has focused on older singers, recently began a five year study to examine group singing as an affordable method to improve the health and well-being of older adults.

A quick note from our founder

I wanted to tell you about a better and far easier way to get all your daily nutritional needs and then some into your diet...

It's so incredible, I've done the unthinkable. YES, I sold my juicer--never to juice again!

And NO I am not spending good money on outrageously expensive smoothies at those high-priced franchises or shots of wheatgrass at $5 a pop.

No this is way easier and cheaper…

In fact, each serving takes just 30 seconds to make and contains all your daily nutrition needs and more-- and at the same time, costs JUST $1.36 per serving.

You can make a glass in a snap, with water or almond milk and just a spoon or a water bottle.

Maybe best of all, each serving contains no sugar and there's no gag-reflex from the yucky taste of the dreaded green foam : )
