Take a look around you. Green is nature’s favourite and most dominant colour. Life on Earth depends on greens. The aquatic plants, land plants, and grasses that are densely spread across the globe have been the primary source of food for hundreds of thousands of years, providing energy and sustenance to all creatures that eat them.
Active Greens provides the richest greens grown in soil, fresh water and sea water for the most wholesome combination. There are a total of 4 types of green plants in Active Greens:-
- Ashitaba Leaves – “The Jewel of Vegetables”
- Barley Grass – “The Jewel of Plants”
- Chlorella – “The Jewel of Fresh Water Algae”
- Spirulina – “The Jewel of Sea Water Algae”
Today, people are becoming actively interested in the remarkable qualities of green foods to provide the finest combination of essential food elements for complete nourishment of the human body.
So many people today have built up a great deal of acidity in their bodies through eating too much meat and sweets, cakes and junk foods. That acidity will set up a wide variety of symptoms, and these can be easily overcome by taking Active Greens, because it has a definite alkalinizing effect on the system. When the acidity is neutralized, the pains will just disappear.
Active Greens is extremely rich in antioxidants, live enzymes, vitamins, minerals, trace elements, amino acids, essential fatty acids, chlorophyll, chlorella growth factor, fibres and other micronutrients. The greens in our formula are grown or cultured organically and spray dried within a few seconds at low temperature to preserve its full nutritional value.
Some benefits of taking Active Greens are as below:
- It has an organic source
- It helps strengthen our immune system
- It is an alkaline food, which helps neutralize our body’s acidity
- It is a pre-biotic (also known as pro-biotics), which increases our friendly bacteria count in the colon
- It is 100% pure and natural – no salt, sugar, preservatives, colouring, flavouring, sweeteners or additives
Ashitaba (Angelica Keiskei Koidzmi)
Ashitaba is the plant of longevity. Japanese, whom are well known for their longevity, consume raw Ashitaba as part of their daily diet to preserve their health. It has also been called the “King Of Vegetables” in Japan for its high nutritional value. Ashitaba has excellent nutritional balance and provides one of the widest spectrums of naturally occurring nutrients in a single source on Earth today. It contains vitamins, minerals, amino acids, vegetable fibre, chlorophyll and other phytonutrients including chalcone.
By cutting the stem and root of Ashitaba, a thick, sticky yellow juice will flow out. This yellow juice is called Chalcone and is rarely found anywhere else in the natural world. There are two kinds of Chalcone conductors named ‘Xanthoangelol’ and ’4-Hydroxyderricin’. They were discovered by Dr. Kimie Baba (MD, Osaka University of Pharmacy). Chalcone is high in beta-carotene, vitamin A, C, E, calcium, protein, chlorophyll and vegetable fibre, making it superior to other greenish-yellow vegetables. Besides that, it also contains vitamin B12, which is normally found only in animals and not plants.
The main functions of Chalcone are:
- Strengthening our immune system
- Monitoring cholesterol level
- Regulating blood pressure
- Suppressing acid secretion
- Preventing thrombus
- Suppressing cythphy
- Antibacterial activities
- Preventing tumor
- Promoting metabolism
Barley Grass (Hordeum Vulgare)
Barley Grass contains amino acids, minerals, vitamins, EFAs, chlorophyll and multiple enzymes. The antioxidants found in barley grass include vitamin E succinate, superoxide dismutase (SOD), and 2″-0 glycosylisovitein (2″-0-GIV), which are all extremely aggressive free radical scavenging and destroying substances. It has also been studied for its potential as a deodorant and as a stimulant for tissue growth and red blood cells production.
A key therapeutic action of barley grass is to prevent inflammation. In 1983, The Japanese Journal of Inflammation reported that Japanese scientists Matsuoka and Kubota had identified and isolated two special proteins in barley grass, naming them P4-D1 and D1-G1. When injected, these proteins unleashed a powerful anti-inflammatory effect, considered to be more powerful than traditional steroid treatments such as cortisone injections.
Chlorella (Chlorella Pyrenoidosa)
Chlor means green and ella means small, and when combined means that Chlorella is a small green food. It has been nourishing aquatic life for millions of years, and is a nutritional giant filled with a vast array of health-promoting nutrients. With the highest source of chlorophyll in the plant kingdom, this fresh water algae has the most photosynthetic activity and generates the most oxygen of all plants. It is rich in protein, minerals, vitamins, fibre, enzymes, EFAs and high amounts of the nucleic acids DNA and RNA.
Scientific studies tell us that nutrients in chlorella stimulate the immune system and exert cancer-protective action. Chlorella is a powerful internal cleanser. Recently, it was found that chlorella could reduce the accumulation oftoxicity in the body. Chlorella also known to be an effective intestinal deodorizer, offering up its rich supply of chlorophyll to kill bacteria that produce unpleasant odour and gas.
Spirulina (Spirulina Platensis)
Scientists believe that the tiny Spirulina plant is close to the perfect food. It is rich in iron, antioxidants (including Beta-Carotene, Selenium, Vit-E and Super Oxide Dismutase [SOD]),Vit-B12, Essential Fatty Acid GLA, Calcium and Amino Acids. Also, many other important substances such as chlorophyll, phycocyanin, bioflavonoids, RNA/DNA plus an array or “life force” enzymes.
Spirulina contains blue pigment phycocyanin, which is a valuable nutrient. It also naturally loaded with vitamins and vitamin-like substances called carotenoids, minerals EFAs and natural digestive enzymes.
