Why You Need Vegetables (Especially) and Fruits in Your Daily Diet
Both vegetables and fruits contain an impressive array of antioxidants that are hard to find in other foods. Plant chemicals called phytochemicals are essential for supporting healthy cells, bones, eye health, heart health, cognition and brain health, and much more.
Organic greens such as young wheat, barley, oat and alfalfa grasses may offer an outstanding source of nutrients that you might not normally get in your everyday diet.
They may also help balance out the acid-forming foods in your diet, such as commercially produced meats, eggs and dairy, processed foods, breads, cereals, sweetened foods and beverages like coffee, black tea, alcohol and soft drinks.
Artificial sweeteners, breads, and cereals are extremely acid forming, but all of these acid foods can affect your body’s ability to maintain its acid-base balance or pH within its optimal range.
All green plant foods can help maintain your body’s optimal pH. Some of the top alkaline-forming foods include the superfood grasses, broccoli, cabbage, kale, spinach and green tea.
Virtual Nutrient Powerhouses, Fermented Sprouts Provide Valuable Bioavailable Plant Benefits
Sprouts are virtual nutrient powerhouses, packed with nutrients, including antioxidants, minerals, vitamins and enzymes that help to protect your body against free radical damage.
When you compare broccoli sprouts to whole broccoli, the sprouts can contain as much as 100 times the amount of a precursor to a valuable enzyme called sulforaphane – one of the most important nutritional benefits of eating broccoli.
Alfalfa sprouts contain saponins that support healthy normal cholesterol levels. Plus, they contribute to supporting your normal immune and bone health.
The alkalizing effect of sprouts – like other green foods – supports healthy cells and overall health.
From “Miracle Plant” Moringa to Japan’s Prized Green Matcha, These 7 Fermented Herbs Offer Antioxidant Benefits for Your Health and Well-Being
Matcha is an exceptional alkalizing extract that offers antioxidant benefits. The matcha used in this product is a powdered green tea made from some of the finest and youngest leaves of Japan’s first harvesting days.
Sometimes called the “Queen of Herbs,” holy basil or Tulsi has a long history within Indian medicine. Holy basil is considered a tonic for the body, mind and spirit, and different parts of the plant are used for varying conditions. Tulsi’s high concentration of chlorophyll is important for supporting health.
From the same region, moringa is sometimes called the “miracle plant” and is a superfood by all definitions. It contains more than 90 vitamins, minerals and amino acids, and 46 types of antioxidants.
Mate leaf extract or Yerba Mate, is grown and harvested in Brazil and is a traditional South American drink that’s gaining attention worldwide. Yerba mate is an antioxidant-rich tea made from the leaves and twigs of the Ilex paraguariensis plant.
In addition to these four exceptional herbs, they've also added nutrient-rich parsley, peppermint and rosemary to their Fermented Herb Blend for their Organic Fermented Greens.
Spirulina and Chlorella: Two Top Green Superfoods Found in Their Fermented Algae Blend
A few years back, a well-known organization for retirees helped bring spirulina into the spotlight by naming it the No. 1 superfood. Even the World Health Organization calls it a "superfood."
Spirulina is an ancient food that was once a dietary staple of the Aztecs and other Mesoamericans. The nutritional benefits of this green superfood are well researched and documented.
Blue-green spirulina’s greatest gift may be its rainbow of pigments that harvest the sun's energy at different wavelengths – green from chlorophyll, blue from phycocyanin, and yellow and orange from carotenoids.
Their Certified Organic spirulina comes from a quiet and remote area far away from any polluting industrial or agricultural activity. It's guaranteed to be:
- Low in heavy metals, yeast and mold.
- Grown without Chilean nitrate, manure or synthetic minerals.
- Non-GMO and non-irradiated.
- Free from herbicides, pesticides and ground water contamination.
- Produced without harsh chemicals.
- Grown with only herbal fertilizers and pure, artesian groundwater.
Chlorella is a remarkable whole green superfood that's an excellent source of chlorophyll. Like spirulina, chlorella is an alkaline-forming food, so it may help your body maintain a healthy acid-alkaline balance.
They use only broken cell wall chlorella that utilizes a unique process to break open the plant’s cell wall for optimal bioavailability.
Both the spirulina and chlorella products are routinely tested for the presence of heavy metals, so you know they’re safe for you and your family.
