Contains no: artificial colours, flavours, preservatives or added sugars, starch, soy gluten, wheat or yeast.
Additional Information: Organic Chlorella Chlorella is a single-celled alga rich in chlorophyll, which gives the Greens Concentrate its deep, luscious green colour. Chlorella is a great source of plant nutrients and it contains signiï¬cant amounts of protein, nucleic acids, vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates and lipids. Chlorella has been used to help increase the health and nutrient status ofindividuals, and has been found to have antiviral, antifungal, antibacterial and antitumor effects in recent animal studies. Chlorella has been used to help the tolerability of chemotherapy and radiation in patients with cancer, as well as those with lower nutrient status due to high demands, such as physical and mental stress. Growing conditions, harvesting and processing methods are crucial in determining the nutrient content of Chlorella. Trophic`s Chlorella is cultivated in Japan, is Certified Organic, and contains at least 68% protein. The cell wall of the organism is cracked so that all the nutrients are accessible and absorbed.
Premium Natural Spirulina Spirulina belongs to a group of organisms called blue-green algae. These organisms are special, because like Chlorella, they exhibit properties and contain beneï¬ts from both plant and animal kingdoms. Much like Chlorella, Spirulina is a great dietary source of many nutrients and is very high in protein, vitamins and minerals. In fact, the iron in Spirulina is highly bioavailable to humans. In addition to the abundance of nutrients in Spirulina, research has indicated that it is beneficial to the immune system. Spirulina appears to increase immune function by stimulating and activating macrophages to increase phagocytosis of foreign bodies, and the production of interleukin, an immune-regulating compound. Coupled with Spirulina`s ability to bind reactive oxygen species, its antioxidant effects are beneficial in preventing damage to your body`s DNA. Evidence also suggests that Spirulina may play a role reducing serum lipids, liver triglycerides and gastric secretions. Our Premium Natural Spirulina is guaranteed to contain over 55% protein.
Organic Kamut Grass Juice Powder (33:1) Kamut is grass often used as our alternative for individuals who have gluten or wheat sensitivities. Kamut also contains high amounts of protein, vitamins, minerals and other nutrients, and Kamut compliments the nutrient profile of Barley.
Organic Barley Juice Powder (33:1) Barley is a nutritious food that helps to regulate and improve lipid profiles. With cholesterol and LDL lowering capabilities, Barley makes for a very useful adjunct in helping to lower high cholesterol and triglycerides, alongside preventing cardiovascular disease.
Organic Red Beet Juice Powder (4:1) Beets are naturally full of antioxidants and have been used as supportive therapy in the treatment of liver diseases and fatty liver because of their betaine content. Animal data does suggest that beets prevent fat deposition in the liver and is advantageous to those with hyperlipidemia and/or fatty liver.
Acai Berry Extract (4:1) Acai (pronounced AH-sigh-EE) Berry is the fruit from a palm tree found native to South America. It has gained attention due to its nutritious components and anti-aging capabilities. Acai has a very potent antioxidant component as a result of the numerous polyphenols and anthocyanins it contains, including ferulic acid, epicatechin, p-hydroxybenzoic acid and ellagic acid. In fact, it has more antioxidant power than cranberries, raspberries or blueberries. Other significant constituents of Acai include a rich amino acid/protein profile, as well as calcium, phosphorus, iron and thiamine.
Pomegranate Juice Powder The newly recognized active constituent of pomegranate juice is ellagic, now widely known for its cardiovascular protective properties. Preliminary evidence shows that the antioxidant power of pomegranate slows the formation of atherosclerotic plaques in arteries by reducing lipid peroxidation or LDL cholesterol and preventing damage to blood vessel walls. Pomegranate is ideal for those who are combating cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure and improper lipid profiles. These antioxidant properties also apply to cancer prevention and are vital to stop free-radical damage to cells, which may cause mutations, improper cell division, tumor formation and cancer. In vitro, pomegranate juice inhibited cell growth, and induced aggressive prostate cancer cells to undergo apoptosis (programmed cell-death).
Dairy-free Probiotic Culture Probiotics and intestinal health go hand in hand. Probiotics are bacteria that colonize the intestine, and they work for us, not against us. These bacteria synthesize vitamins, improve digestion and elimination, and exclude pathogens that may cause disease. This all translates into better immune function for the entire body, as well as improved health and well-being. Trophic`s Probiotic powder contains a blend of documented strains (L.acidophilus R052ME and L.rhamnosus R011ME) proven to reduce infections. Trophic`s probiotic powder is microencapsulated to ensure the bacteria reach their destination in the colon.
Goji Berry (3:1) Goji berries, a bright red fruit, are from a shrub native to China. Goji fruit and bark has been traditionally used in Chinese medicine for centuries and is said to promote overall well-being and longevity. Recent research indicates that Goji has flavonoids that confer blood pressure lowering effects, as well as cholesterol lowering effects. Goji is also reported to be excellent for helping reduce allergies and hypersensitivity.
Trophic`s Organic Beet, Organic Kamut, and Organic Barley are all Certified Organic and grown domestically in the US. Chlorella is Certified Organic and is from Japan, and Premium Natural Spirulina, though it is still grown under organic practices in the US, is not labeled as Certified Organic anymore due to changes in USDA regulations in 2005.
