What are the "factors" in Natural Green?
The Arabs named this plant Al-Fal-Fa, "father of all foods". They noticed how strong it made their horses so they tried it themselves and were convinced. They found they had increased vitality, strength and appetite. Today, we know that alfalfa is an excellent source of protein - it contains 25 percent protein by weight and it provides vitamin A, E, K, B and D. Alfalfa is also high in chlorophyll and contains a balance of minerals such as magnesium, calcium, phosphorus and potassium.
Daniel Mowrey on alfalfa, "Herbalists have used alfalfa for many different purposes. Most of those applications bear a one-to-one correspondence to the various nutrients in the plant. The one word that keeps appearing is tonic. The plant is a kidney tonic, liver tonic, superlative restorative tonic, digestive tonic, prostatic tonic, reproductive tonic, musculoskeletal tonic, glandular tonic and so forth".
Barley Grass Juice and Wheat Grass Juice
Organic barley grass juice and wheat grass juice are also included in Natural Green Factors .They contain high amounts of chlorophyll which help to purify and detoxify major body systems, especially the liver, lungs and colon. The chlorophyll also counteracts the growth of unfriendly bacteria. Barley juice is high in enzymes, and contains seven times more vitamin C than oranges. These juices are also well tolerated by those with allergies.
Spirulina, a freshwater algae, is one of the most concentrated food sources in the world. It can be called a superfood because it is so rich in protein - estimates range from 65 to 71 percent complete protein - more than fish, meat or poultry. Spirulina is one of the few plant sources that contains vitamin B12, in richer concentrations than beef liver, as well as high concentrations of other B vitamins, amino acids, chelated minerals, trace elements, enzymes and essential fatty acids. The Hawaiian Spirulina chose for Natural Green is grows on Hawaiis pristine Kona Coast.
The makers of Natural Green have included Chlorella in this superior product to give you the benefit of this single-celled fresh water algae "food factory". Chlorella is almost 60 percent protein and contains all 8 essential amino acids. One tablespoonful of dried chlorella provides more than 300 percent of the recommended daily allowance for Vitamin B12, Vitamin C and minerals. It is abundant in beta carotene and contains more chlorophyll per gram than any other plant in nature. The special cracked-cell chlorella used in Natural Green Factors makes all these nutrients very bio-available.
Peace River Bee Pollen is an important part of Natural Green. The pristine environment of British Columbias Peace River Valley is an ideal place to raise bees that yield high quality, nutrientdense pollen free of pesticides, herbicides or heavy metals. Peace River bee pollen is regularly tested for potency and purity and is not blended with inferior pollens. It is collected daily in specially made stainless steel pollen traps, air-dried. cleaned and kept in cold storage until it is shipped for inclusion in Natural Green.
The virtues of bee pollen have been appreciated for centuries. It contain all the amino acids, plus protein, trace element, enzymes and at least a dozen vitamins and has often been called natures most complete food. as a component of Natural Green it gives you an even greater nutrient boost. Some take nutrient-dense bee pollen to fight tiredness and depression. Athletes take it to improve performance and stamina and some as an immune system strengthener.
Carrot juice is chock full of nutrients including high amounts of beta carotene, potassium and vitamin C. However, its the beta-carotene in carrots that receives the most attention. "Carrot juice is the king of the vegetable juice... But perhaps its most important contribution to body health is in its tonic and cleansing effect on the liver. Through regular use, carrot juice helps the liver release stale bile and excess fats. When fat levels are reduced, cholesterol levels are reduced."
Apple pectin is an excellent addition to Natural Green. It is an excellent bowel stimulator and cleanser, however, pectin is also able to bind with heavy metals, radioactive substances and some carcinogens blocking their absorption. The bowels carry the toxins absorbed by pectin out of the body. Another advantage of pectin is its ability to absorb and slowly release nutrients-such as sugars and carbohydrates-allowing blood sugar levels to rise more gradually while increasing the bodys energy efficiency.
Psyllium, a very popular mucilaginous fibre, cleans the intestinal tract and softens stools-adding an important detoxifying component to Natural green. Any program that includes detoxification should work gently not to overload the eliminating organs. Psyllium is ideal because its bulking and lubricating actions contribute to peristalsis and good muscle tone.
Botanicals in Natural Green Factors
Part of Natural Green effectiveness is due to the botanicals included in its formula. herbalists have called artichoke extract a liver tonic because of its bile-stimulating and liver-protecting properties. Artichoke is also a digestive tonic and Christopher Hobbs, in "Foundations of Health: the liver and digestive herbs", suggests that artichoke "may be useful for weight-reduction because it decreases the fat content of blood and increases digestive efficiency and elimination.
Beetroot and Greens Extract
Beetroot and Greens are powerful cleansers and blood builders rich in chlorophyll, vitamin A and C, and minerals such as iron, potassium and calcium. The iron in beets is easily absorbed and, and helps to build red blood cells. "In Europe and Russia, beetroot is used as a tonic and to build up resistance to infection. Beetroot increases the cellular takeup of oxygen... which boosts the immune system. Beetroots and their green tops are mineral rich and help to keep the gall bladder, kidneys and liver healthy"
Dandelion Leaf and Root
The "Dictionary of Modern Herbalism: a comprehensive guide to pratical herbal therapy", refers to dandelion as "a supremely gentle tonic for liver function in a wide range of problems...". The makers of natural Green factors have included dandelion leaf and root in this special formula because of its ability to support liver function.
Wild Oat Extract
Wild Oat Extract is a tonic for major body systems. "Oats are mainly used as a food for weak, debilitated digestion. It is good to use during gastroenteritis, dyspepsia and ulcers. The tincture and extract is a useful nerve tonic and uterine tonic.
A unique ingredient of Natural Green is Panax Ginseng CA Meyer. Revered by many cultures, ginseng is a whole body tonic that has been in use for thousand of years. Ginseng root acts on the cardiovascular system, regulating blood pressure and sustaining proper cardiac rhythm; it also regulates the central nervous system, promoting relaxation and restoring alertness".
In animal studies, mice were given ginseng then irradiated with X-rays. Their resistance doubled. They were infected with bacteria, subjected to extremes of heat and cold and given potent drugs. The animals showed much greater ability to survive with ginseng.
"Kelp belongs in any blend dedicated to restoring the sick and maintaining the healthy. It supplies an incredible number of nutrients and possesses numerous medicinal properties of its own". Although it is very high in minerals, herbalists primarily use kelp as a detoxifier and it is this property that makes it so appropriate an addition to Natural Green Factors.
