 More About What’s in it……

Spirulina – grown in Hawaii and known as the ‘eating sunshine’ plant, Spirulina is positively bursting with enzymes, minerals, trace minerals, antioxidants and phytonutrients which increase the body’s wellbeing and optimise good health. Spirulina is a 95% digestible protein but only contains 1.2 calories per gram. It also delivers a quick source of energy and helps with muscle oxygenation due to high levels of iron; in addition, it includes eight essential amino acids.

Chlorella– also grown in Hawaii, broken cell wall Chinese Chlorella is a great source of natural iron, protein, and beta carotene (18mg per gram). Chlorella provides 100% of the RDA of vitamin 812 in just seven grams and contains 10 times more chlorophyll than most greens.

Alfalfa – high in vitamins A and C, niacin, riboflavin, folic acid, and the minerals calcium, magnesium, iron, and potassium, Alfalfa also contains bioflavonoids. It helps lower blood cholesterol levels. The saponins in Alfalfa bind to cholesterol and prevent its absorption. Alfalfa has also been studied for its ability to reduce atherosclerosis, or plaque build-up, on the insides of artery walls.

Organic Beetroot Juice Powder– The beautiful red-purple colour of beetroot is evidence of the amazing plant pigments known as carotenoids. While it is believed that there are at least 500 of these natural compounds, only a handful have been analysed, with beta-carotene being the best known.

Super Oxide Dismutase (SOD) with Catalase – superoxide dismutase-catalase is designed to function as an oxygen carrier with antioxidant properties.

Fucoxanthin – is a type of carotenoid found naturally in edible brown seaweed such as wakame (undaria pinnatifida) and hijiki (hijikia fusiformis), which are widely used in oriental medicine. Studies conducted at Hokkaido University in Japan have found that fucoxanthin can help burn fatty tissue.

Ionic Trace Minerals (from Great Salt Lake) – these are minerals your body requires for optimal health. They support immune system function, boosting energy, metabolism and antioxidant protection. Additionally, ionic minerals have either a positive or a negative charge, which allows these minerals to pass through your intestinal walls to accomplish specific functions.

Barley, Kamut and Wheat Grass Juices -the key role of these is to purify and cleanse the body and the blood. They achieve this through a process of neutralising harmful toxins. Barley Grass naturally contains 11 times the calcium of dried cows’ milk and five times the level of natural iron as fresh spinach. Packed with a powerful source of enzymes, Wheat Grass also offers a great source of chlorophyll, which is often referred to as nature’s sunshine. These ingredients contain no gluten.

Co Enzyme Q10 and Royal Jelly – possibly two of the most powerful natural anti-oxidants in the world, these ingredients contain up to nine different B vitamins and 22 amino acids, which create the building blocks of life itself.

They supercharge the body’s natural immune system as well as helping to produce cellular energy. Since co enzyme Q10 naturally declines in the body with age, supplementing the body may be essential for maintaining optimum health.

Other Ingredients include:

Lecithin – emulsifies fats and oil into water, supports memory and nerves and is considered to be a brain fuel.

Brown Rice Kernel Membrane Powder – an excellent source of fibre and vitamin B complex.

Apple Pectin Fibre – traps harmful cholesterol, improves peristalsis for enhanced digestive regularity.

Icelandic Kelp & Nova Scotia Dulse – packed with chelated and trace minerals plus natural lithium.

Jerusalem Artichoke Powder– beneficial for the friendly flora of the intestinal tract. It has a delicate sweet taste and a low glycaemic index, making it suitable for people with candida and blood sugar related problems.

Lactobacillus Acidophilus & Bifidus – these probiotics feed friendly flora in the body, are a great source of potassium and offer natural insulin which is essential in treating both type I and II diabetes. They also help to correct pH imbalance in the body and remove harmful toxic bacteria.
