What does Greens Plus give me that regular foods do not?
The superfoods in Greens Plus possess 4 qualities that distinguish them from common foods. They are 100% natural, nutrient-dense, deliver a high ORAC factor, and provide many unique health benefits. Not only are all superfoods 100% natural, but many are organically-grown. Contrary to cartoons and comic books, if food is chemically-created in a lab it is much closer to being junk food than super. Mother Nature is the ultimate laboratory, and recent studies prove that organically-grown whole foods are more nutritious as well as healthier for you and the environment. Nutrient-density, or a high nutrient-to-calorie ratio, is a good indicator of food’s overall health benefits. While some Superfoods can be high in calories, they are always accompanied by rich concentrations of essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants with a high ORAC Factor. Total ORAC, or Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity, is the standard testing method used to measure antioxidant-rich foods, and higher numbers have a greater capacity to neutralize free radicals. Superfoods like wheat and barley grass, spirulina, red apple and dark chocolate all have high-ORAC ratings and many antioxidants associated with unique health benefits.
