Greens is a nutrient and enzyme-rich, complete
"Superfood' that is an energizing, cleansing, alkaline-promoting,
all in-one nutritional supplement.
alkaline promoting benefit of Vital Greens is especially
important for people following a high protein diet. If you’re
on a high protein diet you probably suffer from a low-grade
metablolic acidity that your body must neutralize.
your diet does not have enough base forming foods —
certain vegetables, fruits, nuts — the body attempts
to bring blood pH back into balance with nutrients from the
muscles and bones. Along with the risk of osteoporosis, an
acidic metabolic state can lower IGF-1, growth hormone and
thyroid output while it increases cortisol levels.
Greens is a great alkaline-promoting supplement that
will help your body maintain the proper acid/base balance.
You’ll feel better for it.
of us recognize the need for supplements to counter the fast
foods, toxins, stresses, lack of sleep and challenges we face

bright red berry, acerola contains the most potent source
of natural Vitamin C and Bioflavonoids. Because the body
does not store these nutrients they must be replenished
on a daily basis. Bioflavonoids work synergistically with
Vitamin C to protect and preserve the structure of capillary
blood vessels. They help to promote circulation as well
as stimulate bile production in the liver. The acerola berry
is also very useful in the colon where it helps to balance
the PH levels to allow proper colon function.
of nature's richest mineral foods, alfalfa is also a great
source of chlorophyll which acts as a body cleanser and
a natural deodoriser. Alfalfa grass roots go down as much
as 40 metres into the earth thereby absorbing rare trace
elements that most plants do not have an opportunity to
absorb. Alfalfa contains potassium, calcium, magnesium,
phosphorous, 8 essential amino acids and all known vitamins!
Because these minerals are in a balanced form and very alkaline
they have a neutralising effect on the intestinal tract.
Alfalfa is high in fibre, allowing it to bind and neutralise
substances that could be harmful to the colon.
fibre also contains apple pectin which is a great source
of both soluble and insoluble fibres. They help to cleanse
the intestinal tract by gently sweeping the colon clean
of compacted, putrefying, waste materials, helping to eliminate
excess cholesterol and dietary toxins. Apple fibre contains
soft bulking agents which binds with bile acids and helps
to normalise bowel transit time and regularity. Apple fibre
also helps to block absorption of toxic heavy metals and
dietary carcinogens that get into the food chain and eventually
the body. It helps to slow down the rate by which foods
pass through the intestines, which allows for better nutrient
absorption. This process ultimately helps to stabilise blood
the ancient Indian ayurvedic herbal medicine, one its most
potent adaptogenic tonics. Also known as Indian Ginseng.
Research has demonstrated how it retards various aspects
of the ageing process and treat many established cases of
sarcomas. Increasing stamina, alleviating anxiety and improving
learning ability and memory, it is most commonly used in
India for improving sexual desire and performance.
stable yet active source of enzymes working to enhance protein
digestion. Aspergillus Oryzae is actually a beneficial mould
used in the production of miso.
to be one of the most potent herbs used to enhance the natural
defence mechanism in the body. For over 2000 years it has
been commonly used by the Chinese as a tonic herb to increase
Chi or energy in order to combat fatigue. Astragalus helps
aid adrenal gland function, digestion, protects the body
against harmful radiation, promotes healing and strengthens
the body's resistance to disease.
of the most ancient cultivated foods, barley grass has been
a staple human food for thousands of years! It is so rich
in nutrients that it contains 30 times more vitamin B1 than
milk, 7 times more Vitamin C than oranges, 5 times more
iron than spinach as well as containing large amounts of
beta-carotene, potassium, calcium and magnesium. It is a
very alkaline food which is quite neutralising to the system.
It is rich in natural enzymes particularly S.O.D. (Super-oxide
dismutase), which is an antioxidant enzyme that protects
cells from free radicals. Barley grass provides generous
amount of natural chlorophyll which has a purifying effect
on the body enabling it to eliminate toxins that could lead
one of the best known plant sources of easily assimilated
iron, beets also contain generous amounts of Vitamins A
B C as well as sodium, potassium, calcium, choline, phosphorous
and fibre. They help to facilitate digestion, stimulate
the peristaltic activity of the bowels, and strengthen other
organs such as the spleen, liver, gall bladder and kidneys.
By helping to stimulate the lymphatic system as well, beets
help to rebuild and tone the liver.
wonderful antioxidant, bilberry helps to increase micro-circulation
by stimulating new capillary formation, strengthening them,
and increasing the overall health of the circulatory system.
Bilberry helps to regulate blood sugar levels while helping
to inhibit the growth of fungus, yeast and bacteria.

is an extract from the bean pods of the Carob tree. Carob
is very rich in many vitamins and minerals especially calcium.
It is an alkalising food with a great taste.
major source of carotenoids which are protective food components
carrots contain potent antioxidant activity levels. Carrots
are high in beta-carotene which is needed for tissue maintenance
and repair. It is also important in the formation of bones
a very ancient single cell algae, chlorella was the earth's
first green plant and the first link in the food chain.
Each cell of this plant is self sufficient and capable of
life sustaining functions. Chlorella is 60% protein, and
contains 8 essential amino acids, and more chlorophyll per
gram than any other plant in nature! In just 1 tablespoon
it provides 300% of the daily need for Vitamin B12 and Vitamin
C. It is very rich in beta-carotene. Due to its rapid growth
and the abundance of nutrients, chlorella offers many benefits
including protection against toxic pollutants, pesticides,
drugs, chemicals, atmospheric radiation, power lines, microwaves,
computers and television.
wonderful mineral that helps the body utilise insulin properly
resulting in stabilised blood sugar levels. It is difficult
to get the proper chromium in the diet due to scarcity in
the soil as well as diets high in white sugar and flour
that leach it from the system. It improves the absorption
of glucose into cells making it useful for energy. It helps
to increase lean tissue in the body promoting growth of
lean muscle, and helps to normalise fat storage by improving
utilisation for energy.
it is very similar to the structure of vitamin E, Co-Q10
is a powerful antioxidant/vitamin found in human tissue.
Co-Q10 is a vital component of the energy production in
all cells, especially in the heart and brain. It plays an
important role in the effectiveness of the immune system
and fighting the ageing process. Co-Q10 helps to improve
the efficiency of energy production while helping to boost
existing immune cell capacities. Vital Greens contains
the body's optimum recommended daily allowance for this
is very high in iron, calcium and potassium. It also helps
to cleanse the bloodstream, remove excess fluids, promote
digestive regularity, and improve the function of the pancreas,
spleen, kidneys and bladder. It helps to stimulate bile
production, which in turn helps with overall liver function.
almost every mineral and trace mineral needed for human
existence as well as vitamins and amino acids. It contains
wonderful radiation protection properties. Being a principal
source of iodine, kelp helps to promote proper thyroid function,
provide energy and helps to burn food so it is not stored
as fat. It is helpful to the membranes that surround the
brain called sensory nerves, brain tissue and spinal chord
because it promotes necessary blood circulation.
excellent source of Omega-3, 6 & 9 Fatty Acids or E.F.A.s.
These fats must be supplemented by the diet because the
body does not manufacture them. E.F.A.s are found in high
concentrates in the brain and are necessary for normal brain
function. The most essential of the E.F.A.s is linoleic
acid, which flax is high in. Flax is also rich in the B
vitamins, zinc, magnesium, potassium and fibre both soluble
and insoluble. This helps to keep LDL cholesterol low and
remove toxins and heavy metals from the body.
to be a brain food, Folic acid is essential in the body
for production of energy and red blood cell formation. It
also helps regulate foetal development of nerve cells which
is needed for proper growth and development. It helps reduce
levels of homocysteine (an amino acid) in the body. It is
now known that homocysteine levels tend to increase with
age and that these high levels contribute to the breakdown
of arterial walls which can lead to heart disease.
in absorbing toxins, cleansing the body and aids digestion.
It helps to remove gas from the intestinal tract. Ginger
helps to alleviate nausea and aids in the utilisation of
other herbs in the formula.
bile duct contractions improving flow of bile to the liver
to emulsify fats more effectively. Research demonstrates
its ability to lower LDL blood cholesterol levels and inhibit
the body's own production of cholesterol. With Milk Thistle
it regenerates liver cells and protects the liver from many
toxins (especially alcohol) and promotes the growth of bifido-bacteria
within the gut.
antioxidant that's 20 times more powerful than Vitamin C
and 50 times more powerful than Vitamin E! It contains water
soluble flavonoids that become instantly bio-available in
the human body upon digestion. It also reconstructs collagen
fibres in ageing or damaged tissue by binding to the collagen
fibres resulting in greater elasticity and flexibility.
Readily crosses the blood/brain barrier thereby providing
antioxidant protection to the tissues in the central nervous
system. Compared to Atlantic Pine Bark (Pycnogenol), Grape
seed contains gallic esters which are the most active antioxidant
component of pro-anthrocyanidins.
adaptogen and circulatory tonic which helps to build heart
tone, aid circulation and keep the heart muscle strong.
Aids the body in burning excess calories.
in every living cell with the highest concentration found
in the brain, heart, liver and kidneys, lecithin is primarily
an emulsifier and a brain tonic. The brain is actually 30%
lecithin in dry composition! As an emulsifier, lecithin
in the blood stream helps prevent cholesterol from accumulating
on the walls of the arteries, and helps to dissolve deposits
that already exist. Lecithin is a bi-polar molecule one
that contains fatty acids at one end attracting oil, while
the other end contains phosphorous and nitrogen to attract
water. It has the ability to keep fat-like particles in
a clear solution while they journey through the arteries
(a water environment) so they are unable to form dangerous
deposits on the walls of blood vessels. Lecithin also helps
to metabolise fat especially clogging fat (LDLs) in the
liver and remove fatty liver deposits which in turn lessens
the chance of liver degeneration. Lecithin helps to promote
a healthier liver and a more youthful metabolic process.
In the intestinal tract, lecithin helps with the absorption
of fat-soluble nutrients such as vitamins A, D, E and K.
As a brain tonic lecithin provides choline which has a prompt
effect on the ability if the brain to make an important
chemical for nerve signal transmission which is called Acetyl-choline.
This in turn is able to cross the blood brain barrier that
has a positive effect on the production of chemical signals
in the brain. The result is improved memory, thinking ability
and muscle control. In addition to this acetyl-choline stimulates
peristaltic movement in the colon that aids colon function.
Important source of Phosphatidyl-choline the most important
breakthrough in nerve and receptor regeneration that has
been researched in the last five years in the U.S. Lecithin
is also the source of phosphytidyl-serine which keeps the
brain cells flexible and able to absorb nutrients more effectively.
of the more familiar herbs, licorice root helps cleanse
the colon, maintain proper blood sugar balance, fight fatigue
and balance hormone levels by having a positive effect on
adrenal gland function. It helps to enhance the micro-circulation
in the lining of the gastro-intestinal tract. Licorice's
phyto-chemical qualities keep cancer cells from dividing.
Mary's Thistle) Considered the liver herb, Milk Thistle
contains an active component called Silymarin, which is
a powerful flavonoid that helps to protect the liver from
damaging agents such as alcohol, chemical toxins, poisons
and pollutants. This flavonoid encourages liver cells to
regenerate, helps to increase the flow of bile in the liver,
thereby helping to keep the liver healthy and strong. Liver
health is essential for body maintenance and regeneration.
South American herbs that contains strong adaptogenic properties.
It helps to guard against intestinal parasites, build up
the immune system, and cleanse the blood as well as helping
to improve gastrointestinal utilisation of nutrients.
known as friendly intestinal bacteria, these various non-dairy
strains fortify the intestinal tract, and break down proteins,
fats and starches to make sure these nutrients are absorbed
properly. As well as Vitamin B12, these pro-biotics manufacture
natural antibiotics that destroy pathogenic (disease causing)
bacteria. Pro-biotics need to have food to live and thrive
on, because the goal is to make sure they multiply in your
system and act as the "army". Normally there are
3 probiotics in yoghurt. Vital Greens has no less
than 7 pro-biotics! These line the length of the intestinal
tract and help recolonise friendly bacteria where they're
needed. Our pro-biotics are freeze dried for extra stability
and do not need refrigeration until the container is opened.
important adaptogen, helping to strengthen the heart, protect
the liver, normalise blood pressure, support adrenal function
and help enhance immune system by increasing the production
excellent food that provides both soluble and insoluble
fibre, natural Vitamin E, a full complex of B vitamins and
is a good source of silica (which helps to keep hair, skin,
nails etc. healthy and strong). Rice Bran helps to regulate

most nutrient rich of all blue-green algae, Spirulina is
4 billion years old, and was the first photosynthetic life
form on this planet! It helped to create the earth's oxygen
atmosphere. Spirulina grows wild, however most manufacturers
use Spirulina that is farmed in a controlled environment
which helps to secure that it grows fresh and clean without
any toxic invasion. Spirulina contains potent antioxidants
and is rich in the following nutrients:
Spirulina is a potent source of beta-carotene providing
10 times more than found in carrots! Beta-Carotene yields
the most vitamin A which is needed for night vision, growth,
tissue healing, repair etc. It is also a very potent antioxidant
that helps to protect cell membranes and tissue lining
from irritating effects of free radicals (unstable molecules)
by neutralising them. Epidemiological evidence is sufficient
to suggest that foods rich in carotene or vitamin A are
associated with a reduced risk of cancer (as noted by
the National Academy of Sciences).
B12: Spirulina is a rich source of B12, providing 2 times
more than that found in the liver. It has been called
the "spark plug vitamin" of the body due to
how it aids in cell formation, development, growth and
longevity. It is needed for proper food absorption, digestion,
protein synthesis and metabolisation of carbohydrates.
B12 contains an essential mineral called cobalt which
is needed for healthy red blood cells and for protection
Spirulina contains a pre-digestive bile in the cellular
walls. It combines with lecithin to form liposomes that
greatly enhances nutrient absorption by forming a surfactant
around the nutrients, which means there is no surface
tension around the nutrients so they are more easily absorbed
in the mucosa layer of the small intestine.
Spirulina is 1.1% chlorophyll which helps to purify the
lungs, liver and colon. It also helps to clean cells and
acts as a germicide in the mouth, throat and stomach.
Chlorophyll is known to help detoxify and deodorise the
entire gastro-intestinal tract.
(gamma-linoleic acid): Spirulina is high in GLA that is
an EFA (essential fatty acid of the same type of oil in
the evening primrose plant) GLA is known to be anti-inflammatory,
helps in the prevention of heart disease, high blood pressure
and high cholesterol.
Spirulina is one of nature's best natural sources of iron.
It is almost 20 times higher than that of common iron
foods. Iron is essential for strong red blood cells and
a healthy immune system.
(super-oxide dismutase): A potent antioxidant enzyme that
helps to protect cellular integrity from free radical
attacks while reducing the rate of cell destruction. S.O.D.
also helps to aid the body's utilisation of zinc, copper
and manganese. It is now known that cellular extracts
from cultured blue-green algae helps protect human T-cells.
powerful superfood which contains over 90 minerals, including
manganese, calcium, selenium and many more. Wheatgrass has
a greater percentage of protein than eggs. It has a molecular
structure that closely resembles haemoglobin (oxygen carrying
protein of red blood cells) which may be the reason why
the chlorophyll it contains is so effective on the human
body, by helping it to detoxify and cleanse. Wheat Grass
contains no "wheat"; it is the young plant which
is used before any "gluten" is formed. Therefore,
people with wheat allergies are not affected.
