A Better Blend! Taking a Closer Look at Greens First’s Proprietary Blend of Key Ingredients

If you’re like most of us, getting enough nutrients through food can be challenging. Busy schedules all too often mean quick food that isn’t as packed with nutrients as we’d like. Therefore, we created Greens First products, because we know a phytonutrient and antioxidant-rich diet is the way to less inflammation, which keep you healthy and boost your immune system. So, Greens First is the perfect way you and the whole family can get all those nutrients no matter what’s happening in your life.

 

Let’s take a closer look at Greens First’s “Proprietary Blend”, one of our key ingredient compilations, and see how it can improve your life.

1. Barley Grass Juice

What is it?

Among the oldest known food grains, the cultivation of barley goes back 7000 years. “Barley grass” refers to the soft new green shoots of the barley plant. Barley is a nutrient-rich superfood packed with vitamin A, B2, B3, B6, C, E, K, plus electrolytes such as potassium, magnesium, and minerals like zinc and calcium.

 

Benefits:

Barley grass is a powerful antioxidant and a natural detoxifier that alleviates inflammation and boosts your immune response. It also protects the skin from potentially harmful UV radiation and slows signs of aging. Research has shown, it may even prevent certain cancers.

 

2. Powdered Chlorella

What is it?

Chlorella is a fresh-water green algae native to Japan and Taiwan. It is rich in plant protein, vitamin A (> 1000% RDA), and iron (> 700% RDA).

Benefits:

Increases “good bacteria” in the gut, aids digestion, removes toxins from the body (including those from insecticide-treated crops), boosts your immunity, helps balance blood sugar, and reduces fat storage, thus promoting weight loss. It can also reduce skin inflammation and speed wound healing.

3. Spirulina

What is it?

Spirulina is a blue-green algae that flourishes in many environments from Hawaii to Mexico to Africa.  A superfood, spirulina is rich in B-1(thiamine), B-2 (riboflavin), B-3 (nicotinamide), B-6 (pyridoxine), B-9 (folic acid), vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin A, and vitamin E. It also contains potassium, magnesium, calcium, copper, iron, and chromium.

Benefits:

Removes heavy metals from the body, rebalances gut microbes (fights candidiasis), lowers blood pressure, reduces cholesterol, boosts energy, speeds weight loss, and may even help promote apoptosis, which eliminates cells with abnormal DNA that may lead to cancer and other diseases.
