Greens Protein 8 in 1 is not just another powdered drink mix. It’s a great tasting, nutrient rich, complete whole food drink mix that contains a blend of eight products in one: 1) Whole foods that are rich in naturally occurring highly assimilated vitamins and minerals. 2) Enzymes to aid in digestion and reduce infl ammation. 3) Hypoallergenic pea protein isolate; a plant based protein that yields a high biological value (85.4%). Added to balance the absorption of the carbohydrates in the formula. 4) Patented fi ber (Fibersol) and naturally occurring plant based fi ber yielding nearly 20% of the RDA. Added to help ensure optimal gastrointestinal health. 5) Nutrient-dense cereal greens, vegetables, herbal extracts and fruits for potent antioxidant protection. 6) Amino acids and herbal detoxifi ers to purify and cleanse your blood; leading you from acidic to alKaline blood levels and achieving an ideal pH balance. 7) Probiotics are friendly bacteria that play an important role in digestion, proper metabolism and overall health. 8) The Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs), leucine, isoleucine and valine, are important, essential amino acids that are critical to human life and are particularly involved in stress, energy and muscle metabolism.
1. Whole food Multi-Vitamin - Greens Protein 8 in 1 contains whole food vitamins and minerals. Consuming ~nature made~ nutrients is the most natural way to assimilate nutrients necessary for optimal health because phytonutrients are assimilated by the body better. Taking whole foods in capsules or tablets is great, but there is a problem, you just can’t get enough in pill form to make a difference. Greens Protein 8 in 1 contains 30 grams per serving of whole food nutrients providing you with the natural quantity of vitamins and minerals needed for optimal health… just look at the label and see.
2. Enzymes-Nutrient Digestion and Absorption - Optimal functioning of the gastrointestinal tract ensures the digestion and absorption of nutrients critical to good health happens effi ciently. Without good digestion, nutrients will not get absorbed into our blood stream and delivered to our cells. The digestive enzymes and nutrients found in Greens Protein 8 in 1 help to optimize digestive function and absorption of nutrients. Our enzymes are designed to work over a wide range of pH (3.0-9.0), thus working continuously throughout the pH variations in the digestive tract. Our enzymes are designed to breakdown carbohydrates, starches and vegetable proteins. Starches contain many sugar molecules in a chain linked with alpha and beta linkage. These long chain molecules need to be broken at both alpha and beta linkages in the starch molecule for better absorption by the body. Greens Protein 8 in 1 contains both alpha and beta amylases. Four different plant proteases are also uniquely mixed to optimize the maximum digestion of proteins from vegetable proteins in the various pH ranges of the body’s digestion system. Every protease has a different optimum pH and when one protease tapers off, another protease takes over, thus reducing the peaks and valleys and resulting in the most effective digestion of proteins. Peptizyme SP® is an Exo-peptidase and is very helpful in breaking down the peptides formed during the digestion of proteins into readily available amino acids. his signifi cantly enhances the digestion, absorption and bioavailability of amino acids. Some people can’t digest foods with cellulytic content (high fi ber and fruit skins). This results in the build-up of gastric gases. The cellulase enzyme in our blend relieves this problem. HemiSeb® contains a special blend of Xylanase, beta-glucanases, phytase and other hemicellulases. These enzymes reduce the viscosity of foods in the stomach, resulting in better absorption and bioavailability of nutrients.
3. Hypoallergenic Pea protein isolate - Greens Protein 8 in 1 contains pea protein isolate. Nearly all of the greens drinks available on the market today contain little to no protein. This can contribute to fl uctuating blood sugar levels. Pea Protein Isolate is easily digested and helps balance the vegetable carbohydrates and protein ratio needed for complete nutrition. This is also a perfect protein choice for those with allergic dietary concerns. Pea Protein Isolate has a biological value (BV) of 85.4%. The BV is an accurate indicator of the biological activity of protein. It measures the actual amount of protein deposited per gram of protein absorbed. High BV proteins are a better choice for increased nitrogen retention, enhanced immunity and IGF-1 (insulin-like growth factor) stimulation. They are superior for reducing lean tissue loss from various wasting states than proteins with a low BV score.
4. Patented Fiber Protection - The recommended daily fi ber intake based on a 2000 calorie diet is 25 grams per day. Most American diets rarely achieve this goal. Benefi cial aspects of dietary fi ber include decreased intestinal transit time, delayed gastric emptying, increased pancreatic secretions, provide bulk to stools, improved intestinal fl ora and may also help decrease serum lipid levels (cholesterol). A low dietary fi ber diet can lead to extremely serious health conditions, including obesity, diabetes, gout, gallstones, hypertension, cardiovascular diseases, ischemic disease, constipation, hemorrhoids or irritable bowel syndrome. Greens Protein 8 in 1 has added patented fi ber to fortify and protect your intestinal tract. No other greens drink does it like us.
5. Antioxidant Protection - Antioxidants are our best defense against the damaging effects of free radicals on our cells. It is vital to include adequate amounts of antioxidant rich nutrients like those found in fresh vegetables to help fi ght free radicals every day. Greens Protein 8 in 1 contains ingredients known to provide a wealth of potent antioxidants. Each serving contains the antioxidant activity of over 15 cups of fresh fruits and vegetables! We don’t just say it’s a great antioxidant, we measure it using the Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) lab test. The ORAC assay specifi cally measures the scavenging capacity of antioxidants in nutrients against the peroxyl radical; one of the most common reactive oxygen species found in the body. ORAC assays are a valid and meaningful representation of antioxidant capacity and it is becoming an increasingly useful guide for consumers concerned about getting enough daily antioxidants. It is estimated that a scant 10% of the U.S. population consumes fi ve servings of fruits and vegetables per day. The food pyramid recommends at least six servings of fruits and vegetables daily. The average serving of fruits and/or vegetables yields approximately 500 ORAC units and the USDA recommends that to provide meaningful antioxidant health benefi ts, you need at least 2,400 to 3,000 ORAC units in your daily diet. Ninety percent of Americans don’t meet this minimum standard. Greens Protein 8 in 1 provides excellent antioxidant protection and more.
6. Gentle Detoxifi cation & Cleansing - Greens Protein 8 in 1 contains amino acids and herbals that help remove destructive toxins, such as heavy metals and pollutants, that we ingest every day. These toxins will gradually weaken our tissues and lead to disease unless removed from our bodies daily.
7. Probiotics are friendly bacteria that play an important role in digestion, proper metabolism and overall health. Current scientifi c literature supports that regular use of probiotics promote normal digestive health and helps to restore intestinal balance even for those who suffer with conditions such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).
8. The Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAA’s) leucine, isoleucine and valine are important, essential amino acids that postively affect skeletal muscle growth, enhance fat loss, help to stimulate protein synthesis and inhibit its breakdown. Benefi ts of Greens Protein 8 in 1: Balances blood sugar levels. Enhances the immune system. Helps to neutralize excess acidity. Naturally and gently helps to detoxify our system. Improves digestive function and increases regularity. Provides excellent antioxidant protection against free radicals. Increases energy levels naturally without the use of stimulants. Provides a wide variety of nutrients to support cellular metabolism. Increases mental acuity by providing nutrients essential for brain function. Establishes a proper pH in the intestines leading to a healthy colon environment.
Warning: If minor gas or bloating occurs, reduce the amount taken to allow your system to adjust to the natural grain, fruit and vegetable fi bers.
