Flaxseed + The Ideal Blend of Greens (veggies) =
Super Flaxseed + Greens! The only nutrient dense formula of its kind.
Flaxseed has been termed the ‘darling’ of the plant world with recent research looking at flaxseed for its possible effects on cholesterol, blood sugar levels, certain cancer risks and the inflammation often associated with arthritis, Parkinson’s disease and asthma. Amazingly only 9% of Americans consume the recommended 5 servings of veggies per day; AND even less consume 3-5 servings of leafy green vegetables.
Like most of us who are too busy to, or just don’t eat properly, or have passed that half-century mark and don’t absorb the nutrients from their foods as they used to: This formula was created for you!
What The Experts Say:
“Even if you’re eating a perfect food pyramid, did you know that with each passing birthday the human stomach produces less hydrochloric acid needed to digest food and properly absorb adequate amounts of certain key nutrients? By age 50, this dwindling supply of acid causes a vitamin inadequacy in at least 1 in 4 Americans: By age 75, it affects about 40 percent. Memory lapses. joint pain. fatigue. acid reflux and heart burn (Stop reaching for the ant-acids!). Sounds a lot like aging, doesn’t it? But many of the classic signs of aging overlap with symptoms of nutritional inadequacy.”*
“Just because you feel you’re aging doesn’t mean it’s because you’re aging. Fact is, you may be coming up short in the vitamins department – just like millions of others who have passed the half-century mark.”*
In addition to 1000mg of Flaxseed per serving – you’ll get all these veggie nutrients.
Chlorella is specially cultivated green algae known as one of the best sources of natural chlorophyll and fiber. This power-packed whole food source provides 19 amino acids including all 8 of the essential amino acids. Chlorella also includes a host of vitamins and minerals in addition to being a potent source of protein.
Spirulina – This tiny aquatic plant is considered one of the world’s healthiest foods; rich in beta carotene and phytonutrients offering 60% all-vegetable protein, essential vitamins, the rare essential fatty acid GLA, sulfolipids, glycolipids and polysaccharides. Its deep green color comes from its rainbow of natural pigments – chlorophyll (green), phycocyanin (blue) and carotenoids (orange) – that harvest the sun’s energy. It is easy-to-digest so the nutrients are absorbed quickly.
Alfalfa Juice Extract – The alfalfa plant is one of the richest sources of all minerals necessary for good health. It is especially rich in calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus and iron in their most digestible forms. Alfalfa also contains fluoride (in a natural form), most of the beneficial trace minerals, fiber, vitamins including vitamin A – as beta carotene, B6, B12, C, D, E, and K, and essential fatty acids.
Barley Grass and Juice Powder – Barley grass is thought to contain perhaps the most balanced nutrient profile of all green plants with an abundance of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, amino acids, proteins, active enzymes, and chlorophyll.
Broccoli Powder – Broccol has been getting a lot of attention lately – mostly because of a naturally occurring compound in broccoli, Glucoraphanin, also known as sulforaphane glucosinolate (SGS). This compound has demonstrated cancer fighting abilities, and may also be able to reduce the risk of high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease and stroke.
Brussels Sprouts Powder – Brussels sprouts have many beneficial phytochemicals and have shown to have anti-cancer effects. They are also an excellent source of folate, vitamin C and iron.
Kale Powder – Kale, a form of cabbage, has received much publicity for it’s health benefits. But, did you know that kale has more vitamin C per cup than an orange and more beta-carotene than carrots? In addition, it is an excellent source of calcium and is high in phytochemicals. Throw in some folic acid and you have what may just be the perfect vegetable.
Spinach Powder – Spinach was first made popular by Popeye, the sailor man… And it turns out he knew what he was talking about. As a vegetable, it is loaded with vitamins and nutrients. It is an excellent source of vitamin A, vitamin C and Folate. Spinach also contains high levels of potassium. This veggie has been researched for possibly lowering the risk of cancer, helping to avoid and relieve anemia and may protect against eye degeneration and heart disease.

Wheat Grass and Juice Powder – Wheat grass packs quite the ‘nutrient punch’. It is an excellent source of chlorophyll, contains over a dozen amino acids, and is rich in many minerals (such as: magnesium, calcium, potassium and phosphorus). It is also a great natural source of many vitamins, to include; A, C, E and K plus a host of B vitamins.
