Natural greens in the diet do a multitude of good for the body. Super Greens Alkalizer contains green super foods with a combined nutrient profile featuring concentrated levels of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and antioxidants. A combination of nutrient-rich grasses and green algae, Super Greens Alkalizer promotes a healthy immune system, encourages normal cardiovascular function, helps to remove toxins from the body, lowers body acidity, and much more.
Wheat grass is the young shoot of wheat before the stalk forms a head with the grain. While it contains no gluten, this super food has a heavy concentration of nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, chlorophyll, and antioxidants. This potent mix of nutrients supports the immune system, helps to keep the colon cleansed, and rids the body of accumulated wastes and toxins.
Barley grass, also gluten-free, has a nutrient profile similar to wheat grass—high in vitamins, minerals, plant enzymes, chlorophyll, and antioxidants.
Barley grass helps to balance the body’s pH. The Western diet promotes increased body acidity thanks to an over consumption of processed foods, red meats, and carbonated beverages. A more acidic environment (lower on the pH scale) in the body has been linked to accelerated aging, disease formation, and declining health in general. The alkalizing effect of barley grass encourages the body’s cells to operate normally and ward off disease.
Barely grass also stimulates the growth of good bacteria in the gut. A normal level of good bacteria helps to reduce inflammatory bowel conditions and helps to balance the water content in the bowels.
Lemongrass has natural pain-killing ability and helps to calm muscle ache. A compound in lemongrass called eugenol exhibits a similar effect on pain much in the way that aspirin does. Lemongrass also helps digestion and supports kidney health.
Chlorella is a single-celled green algae with exceptional disease-fighting capabilities. Chlorella’s nutrient profile includes amino acids, vitamins, carotenoids, and antioxidants. Chlorella is highly prized for its immunity boosting and detoxification properties.
Chlorella is capable of raising blood levels of albumin, a protein and antioxidant that helps to transport vitamins, minerals, fatty acids and hormones throughout the body. Albumin also carries toxins out of the body cells and transports the harmful wastes to the liver where they are disintegrated and eventually excreted. Chlorella also contains the phytonitrient sporopollenin, which binds to neurotoxins and filters out pollutants such as pesticides, industrial wastes, food preservatives and heavy metals.
Chlorella’s disease-fighting properties support immune strength and help to combat bacterial and viral infections. Additionally, chlorella promotes the development of beneficial intestinal bacteria, and helps with intestinal complaints.
Spirulina is a blue-green algae with a nutrient profile containing vitamins, minerals, protein, fatty acids, chlorophyll, and antioxidants. This dynamic concentration of nutrients protects the immune system, supports healthy cardiovascular function, detoxifies the liver and kidneys, and aids in the production of red and white blood cells.
While the antimicrobial properties of spirulina help to control pathogenic bacteria and yeasts in the digestive tract, spirulina promotes the growth of good intestinal bacteria. A balanced population of intestinal flora is a key component to optimal digestion and nutrient absorption.
