Ingredients & Benefits
Acerola Cherry: Acerola has been studied and found to be a powerful antioxidant demonstrating anti- cancer potential. Acerola contains polyphenols.
Alfalfa: Alfalfa may help reduce blood sugar and cholesterol levels which can benefit heart health. Alfalfa herbal supplements have laxative and diuretic qualities as well as helping to improve appetite. Alfalfa assists with the treatment of urinary tract infections, and kidney, bladder and prostrate disorders. Alfalfa can relieve pain associated with arthritis and bursitis due to its anti-inflammatory properties.
Alfalfa may be helpful with menopausal side effects by reducing hot flashes. In addition, alfalfa aids in increased energy levels due to its high nutritive value.
Aloe Vera: Aloe Vera contains numerous vitamins and minerals, enzymes, amino acids, natural sugars and agents which may be anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial. The combination and balance of the plant's ingredients are what purportedly gives it its healing properties.
Apple Fiber Pectin: As a dietary fiber, apple pectin is helpful in maintaining good digestive health. Researchers at the University of California, Davis, found that apple pectin also acts as an antioxidant against the damaging portion of cholesterol in the blood stream.
Atlantic Kelp: Kelp has a very high natural iodine content, which has a normalizing effect on the thyroid gland. Due to the vitamin and mineral contents of Atlantic Kelp it may help scalp and hair health. Poor digestion, flatulence and obstinate constipation, have been helped with Kelp supplementation.
Barley: Barley seems to improve several cardiovascular risk factors. For example, in a study of male participants, researchers found increasing whole grain foods in a healthy diet could reduce high blood pressure.
Blueberry Extract: Blueberries are a particularly rich source of antioxidants called anthocyanins (also contained in apples, grapes, blackberries, radishes, and red cabbage). Several studies suggest anthocyanins discourage blood clots from forming, warding off heart attacks. They also appear to improve night vision and to slow macular degeneration by strengthening tiny blood vessels in the back of the eye.
Broccoli Juice: Contains a chemical called sulforaphane that kills helicobacter pylori. H. Pylori is the bacteria responsible for peptic ulcers and many gastric cancers, and the risk can be greatly reduced by regular consumption of broccoli juice.
Carrot juice: Carrot juice has anti-carcinogen properties. Thus, it may help prevent cancer. The Beta carotene found in carrots is an anti-oxidant, and thus it prevents cell degeneration, slowing down the aging process.
Cauliflower Juice: Investigating their chemo protective effects, scientists at the University of Urbino claim to have discovered the mechanism of action by which Brassica oleracea (cauliflower) may offer protection against breast cancer.
Chlorella: Numerous research projects in the USA and Europe indicate that chlorella can also aid the body in the breakdown of persistent hydrocarbon and metallic toxins such as DDT, PCB, mercury, cadmium and lead, while strengthening the immune system response. In Japan, interest in chlorella has focused largely on its detoxifying properties -- its ability to neutralize or remove poisonous substances from the body.
Concord Grape Powder: According to results from a preliminary study presented at Experimental Biology April 14, 2003 in San Diego, CA “Men with elevated blood pressure who drank Concord grape juice for twelve weeks experienced a significant drop in both their systolic and diastolic blood pressures”.
Digestive Enzymes: A shortage of enzymes in the body will influence the health of the entire body, and symptoms may include stomach gas, indigestion, bloating, heartburn and flatulence. Increase the nutrients you absorb from your diet to improve overall nutrition. Decrease or eliminate indigestion, gas, bloating and reflux. Address the underlying cause of digestive complaints rather than temporarily masking the symptoms. Enhance the body's digestive efficiency, reduce fatigue and increase your energy. Leaving energy to focus on other functions, like strengthening the immune system and regenerating cells and tissues. Ease stress on digestive organs, especially the pancreas, by reducing their workload. Improve general health and quality of life
Grape seed Extract: Grape seed has been suggested for many other uses, based on tradition or on scientific theories. However, these uses have not been thoroughly studied in humans, and there is limited scientific evidence about safety or effectiveness. Some of these suggested uses are for conditions that are potentially serious and even life-threatening.
Green Tea Extract: In 1994 the Journal of the National Cancer Institute published the results of an epidemiological study indicating that drinking green tea reduced the risk of esophageal cancer in Chinese men and women by nearly sixty percent. University of Purdue researchers recently concluded that a compound in green tea inhibits the growth of cancer cells. There is also research indicating that drinking green tea lowers total cholesterol levels, as well as improving the ratio of good (HDL) cholesterol to bad (LDL) cholesterol.
Ionic Trace Minerals: Your body needs minerals found in large quantities, such as magnesium. It also needs many trace minerals, such as chromium, zinc and selenium. Medical science has proven beyond any doubt that the body can absorb essential minerals in the ionic form far more rapidly than in pill, powder, colloidal, or any other form.
Lecithin: Phosphatidyl choline is a brain and nerve nutrient. It acts to protect the insulating and protective sheaths that surround the brain, spine, and thousands of miles of nerves. Phosphatidyl choline helps reduce high cholesterol levels by enhancing the metabolism of cholesterol in the digestive system and aiding its transport through the circulatory system. It acts as an emulsifier to break down the fats and cholesterol into tiny particles and holds them in suspension, preventing them from sticking to blood platelets or arterial walls.
Milk Thistle (Silymarin): Milk Thistle (Silymarin) has antioxidant properties. Milk Thistle also contains anti-inflammatory effects, which keeps liver cells from swelling in response to injury, and it seems to encourage liver cell growth. By changing the outside layer of liver cells, it prevents certain toxins from getting into liver cells.
Oat Beta-Glucan: Oat Beta-Glucan is the active ingredient in oat soluble fiber, recognized by the United States FDA as an effective way to lower blood cholesterol.
Parsley Juice: Parsley's volatile oils—particularly myristicin—have been shown to inhibit tumor formation in animal studies, and particularly, tumor formation in the lungs. Myristicin has also been shown to activate the enzyme glutathione-S-transferase, which helps attach the molecule glutathione to oxidized molecules that would otherwise do damage in the body.
Pomegranate: Preliminary evidence suggests that pomegranate may reduce cholesterol. Israeli researchers, published a small clinical study in June 2004 in Clinical Nutrition, suggested that drinking a glass of pomegranate juice a day for one year reduced blood pressure (particularly systolic pressure) and slowed down LDL cholesterol (the bad cholesterol) oxidation.
Probiotics: Generally Probiotics help to maintain a healthy digestive system by maintaining a balance between the harmful and beneficial bacteria in the gut. They are of benefit especially when taken during and after antibiotic treatment or when traveling abroad where the body encounters different types of bacteria than it is used to. Other possible health benefits include immune system stimulation, treatment of acute diarrhea and other GI disorders and improved lactose digestion.
Quercetin: Quercetin is a powerful anti-oxidant. It is also a natural anti-histamine, and anti- inflammatory. Research shows that quercetin may help to prevent cancer, especially prostate cancer.
Red Beet Root: Red Beet Root has properties to clean the kidneys and gall bladder. Being rich in alkaline elements, potassium, calcium, magnesium and iron, is useful in combating acidosis. Red Beet Root is also beneficial in the treatment of anemia, digestive problems, as well as circulatory and skin disorders.
Red Wine Extract: A study by the Harvard Medical School and the National Institute of Aging showed that heavy doses of red-wine extract lowers the rate of diabetes, liver problems and other fat-related ill effects in obese mice. Fat-related deaths dropped 31 percent for obese mice on the supplement, compared with untreated obese mice, and the treated mice also lived long after they should have, the study said.
SDG Lignans: Studies have shown SDG Lignans to be effective in a variety of health complications. Much extensive study has been done on the effects of flax lignans on certain diseases such as Prostate cancer, Skin cancer, Melanoma, Diabetes, Lupus and many more. Being Phytoestrogens, SDG lignans have also been reported to be effective in balancing hormone related problems in women.
Spinach Juice: A carotenoid found in spinach fights human prostate cancer in two different ways, according to research published in the Journal of Nutrition. The carotenoid, called neoxanthin, not only induces prostate cancer cells to self-destruct, but is converted in the intestines into additional compounds, called neochromes, which put prostate cancer cells into a state of stasis, thus preventing their replication.
Spirulina: This tiny aquatic plant offers 60% all-vegetable protein, essential vitamins and phytonutrients such as the antioxidant beta carotene, the rare essential fatty acid GLA, sulfolipids, glycolipids and polysaccharides.
Sprouted Barley Malt: Malted barley has a high complement of enzymes for converting its starch supply into simple sugars; it also contains protein, which is needed for yeast nutrition. Barley malt is also used medicinally as a bulking agent to promote bowel regularity
Trans Resveratrol: It promotes cardiovascular health through its antioxidant action and its ability to promote healthy platelet function and maintain healthy arachidonic acid metabolism.
Turmeric Rhizome: It purifies the blood, aids digestion of protein, promotes proper metabolism in the body, correcting both, excess and deficiencies. It is used in treatment for fever, mild stomach upset, infection, arthritis, dysentery, jaundice and other liver problems.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why take GREENS every day?
If you want to support your body’s health on a regular basis, providing it with a constant source of nutrition is vital. Every day we get up with good intentions to eat well and take care of ourselves. Then due to the everyday stresses in life, we find ourselves reaching for less than ideal foods or are left without the time and energy to prepare those good-for-us fruits and vegetables our bodies need.
Can I take GREENS twice a day?
Our products can be taken more than once per day. Feel free to have a glass anytime you need a quick burst of energy or crave something sweet. At the very least, the products work best when taken at least once per day. However, if taken twice per day, you can double up on benefits. Drink a glass in the morning to help wake you up and then another in the early afternoon to give yourself another burst of energy while most other people are ready for a nap.
Should GREENS be taken on an empty stomach?
The synergistic blend of ingredients in the product, GREENS is designed to be digested and absorbed very quickly. For best results and optimum absorption, our greens should be taken on an empty stomach or with a very light meal or snack. Eating heavy or greasy foods will impede digestion and absorption of the ingredients. If you eat a light breakfast, or for instance a handful of nuts or trail mix with the product, you should absorb the nutrients just fine. Many people drink the product by itself or mix it into their favorite protein powder or fruit shake to boost their meal-replacement product or smoothie.
Can or should I take a multivitamin supplement with GREENS?
Our product is a healthy alternative to taking a daily multivitamin supplement. GREENS contains naturally-occurring plant-based sources of organic vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients which help provide you with the essential fruit and vegetable sources of these nutrients. The enzymes, probiotics, and herbal extracts gently aid the body in maximizing the absorption of the nutrients and unlocking the whole-food juices. One scoop of GREENS provides 20 servings of fruits and vegetables in a delightfully pleasant-tasting drinkable supplement.
Is there caffeine in GREENS? How much?
There is a special type of fully organic decaffeinated green tea. The special process that makes the green tea decaffeinated also preserves the delicate antioxidants and phytonutrients of the green tea. The process is fully organic and does not use dangerous chemicals or processes that regular decaffeinated tea or coffee makers use. You can feel safe in giving GREENS to children and those who are avoiding caffeine for any reason. Even individuals who are allergic to caffeine should be safe taking the products. The easiest way to find out is to take a diluted dose and work up to a full dose.
What are Probiotics and how can they benefit us?
Probiotics are healthy bacteria and intestinal flora which are found naturally occurring in our digestive tract. Not long ago we could obtain all the probiotics and intestinal flora we needed through the foods we ate and proper nutrition. Through the process of sterilization, manufacture, chemical processing, and cooking of food, the foods we eat are not only robbing us of vital nutrients, they are robbing us of the vital bacteria we need to digest them.
