: Barley seems to improve several cardiovascular risk factors. For example, in a study of male participants, researchers found increasing whole grain foods such as barley and barley grains in a healthy diet could reduce high blood pressure.
Chorella: Numerous research projects in the USA and Europe indicate that Chorella 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, and chlorella products has focused largely on its detoxifying properties -- its ability to neutralize or remove poisonous substances from the body.
Spirulina: This tiny aquatic plant known as Spirulina, offers 60% all-vegetable protein, essential vitamins and phyto-nutrients such as the antioxidant beta carotene, the rare essential fatty acid GLA, sulfolipids, glycolipids and polysaccharides are also found in Spirulina.
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.
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.
Carrot juice: Carrot juice has anti-carcinogen properties. Thus, it may help prevent cancer. The Beta carotene found in carrots and carrot juice is an anti-oxidant, and thus it prevents cell degeneration, slowing down the aging process.
Broccoli Juice: “Eat your broccoli,” Mom said! Broccoli 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.
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 known as cauliflower may offer protection against breast cancer. Delicious GREENS 8000 gives you the protective benefits of cauliflower in each serving.
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.
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 found in Parsley 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.
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.
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. Taking Oat Beta-Glucan daily may lower the risk of constipation and constipation related problems.
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.
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.
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.”
Acerola Cherry: Acerola has been studied and found to be a powerful antioxidant demonstrating anti-cancer potential. Acerola contains polyphenols.
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.
