It Works “Greens” Research
Soy Lecithin: There is a small amount of Soy in the Greens; therefore it does have a tiny amount of gluten. The soy protein isolate is fermented NON-GMO soy. It’s a dry powder food ingredient that has been separated or isolated from the other components of the soybean, making it 90-95% protein, and basically carbohydrate and fat free.
Acerola Berry: West Indian Cherry a very rich source of Vit C
Alfalfa Grass: Used for thousands of years. Contains 8 amino acids, calcium, magnesium, potassium, zinc, iron, beta carotene, Vitamin A, D, K and E
Wheat Grass: Increases red blood-cell count and lowers blood pressure. It cleanses the blood, organs and gastrointestinal tract of debris. Whea tgrass also stimulates metabolism and the body’s enzyme systems by enriching the blood. It also aids in reducing blood pressure by dilating the blood pathways throughout the body.
- Powerful cleanser and detoxifer of the blood and liver
- Strengthens the immune system
- Energy booster
- Anti-Ageing properties
- Vitamins B, C, E, K, folic acid, B17 and beta-carotene
- Very high in Chlorophyll
Barley Grass: Barley grass is said to have 30 times more vitamin B1 and 11 times the amount of calcium than there is in cow’s milk, 6.5 times as much carotene and nearly 5 times the iron content of spinach, close to seven times the vitamin C in oranges, four times the vitamin B1 in whole wheat flour, and 80 micrograms of vitamin B12 per 100 grams of dried barley plant juice. Barley grass is very high in organic sodium, which dissolves calcium deposited on the joints and also replenishes organic sodium in the lining of the stomach. This aids digestion by improving the production of hydrochloric acid in the stomach. People with arthritis have used celery juice for years because of the organic sodium it contains (28mg per 100grams), but compare this to the amount of organic sodium in barley grass (775mg per 100 grams)! Barley grass, at the time it is harvested to make juice, is about 45 percent protein.
It has almost twice as much protein as an equivalent amount of wheat germ and about five times the minerals which accompany animal protein; in addition the protein in barley grass doesn’t come burdened with fat. Enzymes (barley grass is believed to contain up to 1,000 of them) are the necessary regulators of the body, without them our cells could not function and we would perish. Barley grass has one of the highest natural levels of enzyme SOD (superoxide dismutase), which is a powerful antioxidant that protects the cells against toxic free radicals, thought to be a primary culprit in aging.
Barley malt (sprouted):Barley is one of the first cereal crops ever domesticated by humankind. Barley is considered to be one of the most nutritious cereals and is therefore consumed as a popular health food. Its nutritional content primarily consists of carbohydrates, dietary fibre, fat and protein, as well as vitamins, including thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, folate, vitamin B6 and C. Calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium and zinc are the minerals which are also included in barley. The presence of beta glucan in barley malt helps balance blood sugar in the body.
Brown Rice Bran Powder: Research has been being done to discover the many benefits of rice bran including anti-flammatory properties and being soothing on the bowel.

Bee Pollen: It is one of the richest, most complete foods in nature and contains a wide variety of essential vitamins, minerals, enzymes, protein and amino acids. Bee Pollen is extraordinarily rich in most of the B vitamins and also contains only a few calories per serving. The Chinese have used Bee Pollen for centuries to assist with increasing energy and libido, fighting acne, aiding in indigestion, assisting depression and helping to improve blood pressure. The list of possible benefits of this wonderful nutritious substance is growing after years of research and studies are verifying what nature has always known.
Royal Jelly: Thanks to the amino acids it contains, it slows the effect of ageing and helps to produce collagen in the skin. The amino acids also help to boost the immune system and therefore protect against infections, and autoimmune diseases such as arthritis. Royal Jelly is also a hormone balancer and a general all rounder for the female hormone system, thus reducing the effects of PMS and improving fertility.
Chlorella: Chlorella is a genus of single-cell green algae, belonging to the phylum Chlorophyta. Chlorella has been touted as the perfect whole food. Aside from being a complete protein and containing all the B vitamins, vitamin C, vitamin E, and the major minerals (with zinc and iron in amounts large enough to be considered supplementary), and when dried, it is about 45% protein, 20% fat, 20% carbohydrate, 5% fibre, and 10% minerals and vitamins. It has been found to improve the immune system, improve digestion, detoxify the body, accelerate healing, protect against radiation, aid in the prevention of degenerative diseases, help in treatment of Candida albicans, relieve arthritis pain and, because of its nutritional content, aid in the success of numerous weight loss programs. Because of its unique ability to bind with mercury, lead, and cadmium, the plant (chlorella vulgaris) has become increasing popular as a heavy metal “detoxifier”.
Red Beet Juice: Beet roots are rich in vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, folic acid B12 and C. Some of their many mineral properties are folic acid, potassium, calcium, sodium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus and many antioxidants. The pigment betacyanin, which is responsible for the beet’s deep, red-magenta color is also a powerful antioxidant.
- The pigment that gives beets their rich, red and purple color is called betaine. Betaine presents one of the main benefits of beet juice because it known as a terrific antioxidant, which contains a rich network of phytochemical activity. This antioxidant helps prevent the formation of cancerous tumors and is therefore a powerful cancer-fighting agent. Its effectiveness against colon and stomach cancer has been established through various studies.
- Improves energy and vitality
- Good cleanser for the liver, biliary system and Gall Bladder
Siberian Ginseng: assists with
- Restoring mental alertness
- Improving the functioning of the immune system
- Increasing the body’s resistance to stress from viruses, bacteria, physical exhaustion, chemicals, pollution, and noise
- Increasing physical stamina and muscle strength in athletes

Astragalus: Lowers excessive acidity of the stomach, increasing body’s metabolic rates and promoting faster waste elimination pattern. Helps increase white blood cell count, stimulate growth of antibodies and elevate body’s resistance to bacteria and viruses. Astragalus is a very important ingredient for managing diabetes in Chinese medicine. Assists in lowering blood sugar, plus enhances liver and kidney function. Astragalus extract helps you keep your cholesterol counts in check. Astragalus tea works by preventing fatty plaque deposits in arteries to allow blood to flow freely. In addition, astragalus prevents fats from being absorbed from the intestines and facilitates their accelerated evacuation from the body.
Milk Thistle Extract: Several scientific studies suggest that substances in milk thistle (especially a flavonoid called silymarin) protect the liver from toxins, including certain drugs such as acetaminophen (Tylenol), which can cause liver damage in high doses. Silymarin has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, and it may help the liver repair itself by growing new cells. Early laboratory studies also suggest that silymarin and other active substances in milk thistle may have anticancer effects. These substances appear to stop cancer cells from dividing and reproducing, shorten their lifespan, and reduce blood supply to tumors.
Ginko Biloba: More than 40 components of the ginkgo biloba tree have been isolated and identified, but only two of them — flavonoids and terpenoids — are believed to account for Ginkgo biloba’s beneficial health effects. Flavonoids are plant-based antioxidants, and studies have revealed that flavonoids protect the nerves, heart muscle, blood vessels, and retina from damage. Terpenoids aid blood flow by dilating the blood vessels and reducing the stickiness of platelets. Ginkgo biloba was used originally to regulate blood flow to the brain. Further. Ginkgo biloba is popular as a “brain herb.”
Green Tea Extract: Population-based clinical studies indicate that the antioxidant properties of green tea may help prevent atherosclerosis, particularly coronary artery disease. Research shows that green tea lowers total cholesterol and raises HDL (“good”) cholesterol in both animals and people. One population-based clinical study found that men who drink green tea are more likely to have lower total cholesterol than those who do not drink green tea. Emerging clinical studies suggest that the polyphenols in tea, especially green tea, may play an important role in the prevention of cancer. Researchers also believe that polyphenols help kill cancerous cells and stop their progression.
Nova Scotia Dulse: Nova Scotia Dulse is red seaweed grown in the northern Atlantic and Pacific Northwest. Overall, dulse and other sea vegetables are notable for their high mineral and protein content, particularly iron and potassium. One study found a total of 112 different minerals and trace elements in a collection of red seaweed from northern Spain. Minerals with the highest concentrations are copper, zinc, potassium, calcium, and magnesium. For a vegetable, dulse has an unusually large amount of poly- unsaturated fatty acids. Furthermore, dulse has an unusually high concentration of EPA and DHA, which are omega-3 fatty acids most commonly found in fish.
Aloe Vera: Over 200 worldwide scientific research papers have been published on Aloe Vera. The three main categories of research include anti-inflammatory, anti- bacterial and anti-viral actions of the plant. The juice is said to soothe digestive tract irritations such as colitis, ulcers and irritable bowel syndrome. Its ability to encourage the release of pepsin (a gastric juice enzyme necessary for digestion) when the stomach is full is a possible reason for its ulcer-healing effects Aloe vera is one of the only known natural vegetarian sources of Vitamin B12, and it contains many minerals vital to the growth process and healthy function of all the body’s systems.
Numerous studies worldwide indicate that it is a general tonic for the immune system, helping it to fight illness of all kinds. On-going studies worldwide show that taken in highly concentrated doses can stimulate the production of white blood cells that may help fight viruses and also tumours. Aloe vera contains protein, calcium, magnesium, zinc, vitamins A, B12 and E, essential fatty acids and is naturally rich in Vitamin C which helps maintain tone of blood vessels and promotes good circulation and is essential to the health of the adrenal gland which supports our body in times of stress.
Bilberry: Bilberry extracts have been proven to be extremely helpful in reducing issues relating to the vascular system. It is often recommended for people who suffer from varicose veins, hemorrhoids. It has also been thought to aid in the prevention and treatment of atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis is when the fatty substance that collects in your arteries hardens forming calcium deposits and can lead to artery blockage.
Bilberry has the ability to aid these types of conditions because it contains anthocyanins which act as an anti-inflammatory and are vasoprotective, antiedematous, and vasodialative, as well as other bioflavonoids and antioxidants anthocyanosides, ellagitannins, and proanthocyanidins. Bilberry’s ability to strengthen blood capillaries might also come in handy for people who find that they bruise easily. The same anthocyanins that help correct issues relating to the blood vessels are at work to improve vision maladies such as poor night vision, cataracts, glaucoma and macular degeneration.
Black Walnut Leaf: The Native Indians used the bark to treat skin problems such as ringworm. They drank a tea made from the bark as a laxative and they also chewed on the bark to relieve headache pain. It is also very high in vitamin C.
Blackberry Leaves: Thornless blackberry fruit and leaves have antioxidant properties. Antioxidants protect against the effects of free radicals, molecules produced during the metabolism of food into energy, or in response to environmental toxins such as cigarette smoke. Free radicals can damage cells and may be a factor in heart disease, cancer and other health problems.
Blueberry Leaves: Blueberry leaves are high in antioxidants. A diet rich in blueberries is said to help to improve short-term memory and loss of balance.
Broccoli: Broccoli’s noteworthy nutrients include vitamin C, Vitamin A (mostly as beta-carotene), folic acid, calcium, and fibre. Beta- carotene and vitamin C are important antioxidants that have been linked to a reduced risk of numerous conditions, including cataracts, heart disease, and several cancers.

Vitamins B and C, Calcium, iron, phosphorous, potassium, magesium, sodium, iron and sulfur
Cornsilk: has traditionally been used to treat urinary tract issues, and PMS symptoms. Generally used as a tea.
Cranberry: The vast majority of phytonutrients in cranberry have been studied for their antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti- cancer properties, and in many cases the results have been impressive.
Long before researchers started investigating from the standpoint of science, cranberry has been used to help prevent and treat urinary tract infections (UTIs). For the cardiovascular system and for many parts of the digestive tract (including the mouth and gums, stomach, and colon) cranberry has been shown to provide important anti-inflammatory benefits. It’s the phytonutrients in cranberry that are especially effective in lowering our risk of unwanted inflammation, and virtually all of the phytonutrient categories represented in cranberry are now known to play a role
Dandelion Leaf: Dandelion is so well respected, in fact, that it appears in the U.S. National Formulatory, and in the Pharmacopoeias of Hungary, Poland, Switzerland, and the Soviet Union. It is one of the top 6 herbs in the Chinese herbal medicine chest.
This is a rather inventive way of describing many of the things that dandelion leaves have been used for in many parts of the world. Suppose your doctor tells you, on your next visit, that he has just discovered a miracle drug which, when eaten as a part of your daily diet or taken as a beverage, could, depending on the peculiarities of your body chemistry:
prevent or cure liver diseases, such as hepatitis or jaundice; act as a tonic and gentle diuretic to purify your blood, cleanse your system, dissolve kidney stones, and otherwise improve gastro-intestinal health; assist in weight reduction; cleanse your skin and eliminate acne; improve your bowel function, working equally well to relieve both constipation and diarrhea; prevent or lower high blood pressure; prevent or cure anemia; lower your serum cholesterol by as much as half; eliminate or drastically reduce acid indigestion and gas buildup by cutting the heaviness of fatty foods; prevent or cure various forms of cancer; prevent or control diabetes mellitus; and, at the same time, have no negative side effects and selectively act on only what ails you.
|Dandelions are nature’s richest green vegetable source of beta-carotene, from which Vitamin A is created, and the third richest source of Vitamin A of all foods, after cod-liver oil and beef liver! They also are particularly rich in fiber, potassium, iron, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and the B vitamins, thiamine and riboflavin, and are a good source of protein.|
Goldenseal: The active ingredient in goldenseal is berberine. This compound is known to kill bacteria that cause diarrhea. It can also kill the fungus that causes yeast infections, as well as viruses and tapeworms. Berberine is also reputed to activate the white blood cells of the body, which makes them better at killing infectious organisms. Because berberine is a known disinfectant and antibiotic, it can be used internally or topically. Herbalists use goldenseal to treat people with allergies, influenza and the common cold.
This herb canal so be used to treat inflammatory conditions of the skin and eyes,such as pinkeye and sinus infections. Laboratory studies conducted on berberine have shown that is has the potential to enhance the immune system and kill germs. This herb may also benefit the cardiovascular system by dilating the blood vessels. This can help to improve outcomes for people who have heart failure and abnormal heart rhythms.
|Kale: Like most of its fellow cruciferous vegetables, kale has been studied more extensively in relationship to cancer than any other health condition. This research focus makes perfect sense. Kale’s nutrient richness stands out in three particular areas: (1) antioxidant nutrients, (2) anti-inflammatory nutrients, and (3) anti-cancer nutrients in the form of glucosinolates.|
|Without sufficient intake of antioxidants, our oxygen metabolism can become compromised, and we can experience a metabolic problem called “oxidative stress.” Without sufficient intake of anti-inflammatory nutrients, regulation of our inflammatory system can become compromised, and we can experience the problem of chronic inflammation. Oxidative stress and chronic inflammation — and the combination of these metabolic problems — are risk factors for development of cancer.|
|We’ve seen research studies on 5 specific types of cancer — including bladder cancer, breast cancer, colon cancer, ovarian cancer, and prostate cancer — and intake of cruciferous vegetables (specifically including kale). As a group, these studies definitely show cancer preventive benefits from kale intake, and in some cases, treatment benefits as well.|
|Kamut Grass: Green kamut is also known as kamut grass and is basically khorasan grass. You can use green kamut as a wheat grass juice, often mixed with alfalfa and oatgrass. According to “The Wheatgrass Book,” green kamut has a higher nutritional value than common wheatgrass. Green kamut is unique because it has never been crossbred.
Additionally, green kamut is cholesterol-free, has superior protein levels to regular wheatgrass, is a high-energy grain and contains many vitamins and minerals. Green kamut has higher levels of selenium, zinc and magnesium compared to modern wheat. Additionally, green kamut is high-energy wheat due to its high lipid content. Green kamut also contains sugars including glucose, fructose, sucrose and galactose. Further, it contains amino acids such as tryptophan, leucine, tyrosine, alanine and glycine. Green kamut also has many fatty acids and phospholipids. The vitamin content of green kamut includes folic acid, vitamin A, B-1, B-2, B-6, C and E. Green kamut serves as an effective therapy for
|ulcerative colitis, a form of inflammatory bowel disease, according to the Israel Institute of Technology. Additionally, green kamut provides lightweight protein for vegetarians, antioxidants and digestive enzymes. Further, green kamut has anti-aging properties and the potential to normalize pH balance. Moreover, green kamut has an important oxygenation capacity and functions as an antibacterial in your intestines and has anti-inflammatory properties.|
|Lemon Grass: A study conducted by researchers at the Indian Institute of Toxicology in 2010 found lemon grass extracts to be an effective treatment for inflammation. The powerful antioxidants in lemon grass decreased oxidative stress in mitochondrial membranes, researchers claim. Similar research conducted in 2010 at the National Defense Medical College in Japan found lemon grass to be a therapeutic treatment for inflammatory bowel disease due to its ability of inhibiting excessive production of leukocytes, a type of white blood cell, from reaching inflamed intestines.
Marshmallow Root: has been used to treat asthma, bronchitis and also stomach ulcers, gastritis, atomach acid and indigestion in alternative medicine.
Oat Grass: Like the other cereal grasses, oat grass contains beta-carotene, vitamins K and C, folic acid, calcium, iron, protein, fibre and B vitamins.
Okra: The rich fibre and mucilaginous content in Okra pods helps smooth peristalsis of digested food particles and relieve constipation condition. The pods contain healthy amounts of vitamin A, and flavonoid anti-oxidants such as beta carotenes, xanthin and lutein. It is one of the green vegetable with highest levels of these anti-oxidants. These compounds are known to have antioxidant properties and are essential for vision. Vitamin A is also required for maintaining healthy mucus membranes and skin. Consumption of natural vegetables and fruits rich in flavonoids helps to protect from lung and oral cavity cancers.
The pods are also an excellent source of anti-oxidant vitamin, vitamin-C; provides about 36% of daily recommended levels. Consumption of foods rich in vitamin-C helps body develop immunity against infectious agents, reduce episodes of cold and cough and protects body from harmful free radicals. The veggies are rich in B-complex group of vitamins like niacin, vitamin B-6 (pyridoxine), thiamin and pantothenic acid. The pods also contain good amounts of vitamin K. Vitamin K is a co-factor for blood clotting enzymes and is required for strengthening of bones. The pods are also good source of many important minerals such as iron, calcium, manganese and magnesium.
Papaya Leaf: Papaya leaves have an enzyme papain. New medicine in the last fifteen years has proven in clinical studies that enzymes taken by mouth (oral enzymes) can make it past your stomach to treat and help prevent cancer. In the lab and in clinical studies papain has proven to be a cancer fighting enzyme. Papain, the powerful enzyme in Papaya, helps to dissolve and digest protein, thus easing stomach ailments and indigestion. Papaya has been effective in easing heartburn and is given to treat dyspepsia and gastric catarrh papain treatment reversed rectal lesions induced by extreme prostate enlargement in over 97 percent of the men treated. Since many stomach problems are the direct result of indigestion, use of Papaya appears to help prevent many ailments. It stimulates digestive acids and the production of bile, which may also lead to a healthier liver and pancreas.
Parsley: Parsley is a good source of folic acid, one of the most important B vitamins. Enjoying foods rich in folic acid, like parsley, is an especially good idea for individuals who either have, or wish to prevent, these diseases. Folic acid is also a critical nutrient for proper cell division and is therefore vitally important for cancer-prevention in two areas of the body that contain rapidly dividing cells—the colon, and in women, the cervix.
Plantain Leaf: Plantago major, commonly referred to as plantain, is a type of weed that originated in Europe and Asia but is now found worldwide. Plantain leaf is not the same as the banana-like fruit called plantain that is found throughout tropical areas; although plantain leaves can be eaten as a salad. Plantain leaf has a rich history of oral and topical medicinal use, Plantain contains fibre, potassium, calcium, magnesium, sodium, phosphorus, zinc and copper, as well as vitamins A, C and K. It is also a rich source of numerous phytochemicals, including allantoin, glycosides, phenols, salicylic acid and tannins. Phytochemicals are antioxidant compounds found naturally in plants that prevent free radical induced damage in the body and thereby help to prevent and treat disease in humans. The International College of Herbal Medicine states that plantain leaf has anti-inflammatory, analgesic, antibiotic and immune-stimulating properties.
Red Raspberry Leaves: is used by practitioners in urinary problems and pregnancy and labor and delivery in childbirth.
Rose Hips: When you think of roses, you probably think fragrance, beauty, softness, but how often do you think vitamin C, vascular system or capillaries? During World War II, the English government organized the harvesting of all available rose hips to make vitamin C syrup, since fruits were virtually unattainable at the time. Rose hips are reported to have up to 60 percent more vitamin C than citrus fruit and are rich in bioflavonoids. Bioflavonoids are important to build and strengthen body tissue. This in turn strengthens the vascular system.
Rosemary Leaf: Rosemary contains substances that are useful for stimulating the immune system, increasing circulation, and improving digestion. Rosemary also contains anti-inflammatory compounds that may make it useful for reducing the severity of asthma attacks. In addition, rosemary has been shown to increase the blood flow to the head and brain, improving concentration.
Sage: The rosmarinic acid in sage acts to reduce inflammatory responses by altering the concentrations of inflammatory messaging molecules. The rosmarinic acid in sage and rosemary also functions as an antioxidant. The leaves and stems of the sage plant also contain antioxidant enzymes, and peroxidase. When combined, these three components of sage—flavonoids, phenolic acids, and oxygen-handling enzymes—give it a unique capacity for stabilizing oxygen-related metabolism and preventing oxygen-based damage to the cells
Slippery Elm Bark: Long used as an herbal remedy by Native Americans, slippery elm (Ulmus fulva) is sourced from the inner bark of a tree that grows primarily in the eastern region of North America. Slippery elm contains mucilage, a gel-like substance thought to soothe irritated or inflamed skin or tissue. Slippery elm may be helpful in healing inflammatory bowel diseases (such as ulcerative colitis). The herb is thought to help ease inflammation. In people who suffer from heartburn, the acidic contents of the stomach tend to flow back into the esophagus and damage the delicate esophageal lining. By coating the esophagus with mucilage, slippery elm (taken in tea or lozenge form) may help lessen heartburn pain.
Spinach: Spinach is a super food full of Vitamins B, C and K, Choline, folic acid, beta-carotene, iron, iodine, calcium, phosphorous, potassium and sulphur

- Helpful for high blood pressure, gout and rheumatism
- Vitamins B, C and beta-cartene, potassium, calcium, iron and phosphorous
Thyme: Thymol—named after the herb itself—is the primary volatile oil constituent of thyme and its health-supporting effects are well documented. Thyme also contains a variety of flavonoids, including apigenin, naringenin, luteolin, and thymonin. These flavonoids increase thyme’s antioxidant capacity, and combined with its status as a very good source of manganese, give thyme a high standing on the list of anti-oxidant foods.
Tomato: Tomatoes are widely known for their outstanding antioxidant content, including, of course, their oftentimes-rich concentration of lycopene. Intake of tomatoes has long been linked to heart health. Fresh tomatoes and tomato extracts have been shown to help lower total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, and triglycerides.

- Very high in sulfur, also contains calcium, iron, sodium, magesium, phosphorous, chlorine, potassium and idoine plus Vitamins B, E, C and folic acid
White Willow Leaf: Sumerian, Assyrian, and Egyptian medical records mention use of white willow leaves to treat inflammatory rheumatic pain. Hippocrates recommended chewing white willow bark to increase the flow of urine, and at least 15 Native American tribes used parts of the willow tree to relieve pain. The virtues of willow bark, however, were ignored for decades until a German scientist who knew nothing about Stone’s work obtained the glycoside salicin from a sample of willow bark. In 1828 another scientist isolated salicylic acid, the active principle in the willow bark and leaves. Salicylic acid was synthesized in 1859, and it is the active ingredient in all aspirin sold today. It is primarily used to treat pain, eg. Headaches, joint pain, etc
