"You Are What You Eat"

Don't let other sellers deceive you by selling you naturally organic powders - anything grown in soil or water can be called "Naturally Organic" it must be Certified Organic to be chemical and pollutant free. If you use Super greens that are not organically certified they will already contain all the heavy metals and toxins that you are trying to remove from your body!

Spirulina
Spirulina is a blue-green algae containing complete, balanced protein and a wide range of valuable nutrients. Spirulin is approximately 70% eaily digestible protein. It contains all the essential amino acids, making it a unique vegetarian source of complete protein. Spirulina protein is 95% digestible compared to meat sources which are often difficult for the body to break down. It is estimated that beef protein is only 20% digestible! So spirulina is a wonderful way to consume high quality protein that's easy on the body.

Spirulina is a blue-green algae containing complete, balanced protein and a wide range of valuable nutrients. Spirulina is approximately 70% easily digestible protein. It contains 18 out of 22 amino acids and all of the essential amino acids, making it a unique vegetarian source of complete protein. Better yet, Spirulina protein is 95% digestible compared to meat sources, which are often difficult for the body to break down. In fact, beef protein is estimated to be only 20% digestible. Spirulina is a wonderful way to consume high quality protein that's easy on the body.



Naturally Rich in Nutrients
The complete, whole-food nutrition found in this ancient food provides an endless list of health benefits. Spirulina is particularly high in beta-carotene. Beta carotene converts into vitamin A in the body. Vitamin A is essential for healthy eyes, skin, teeth, nails, hair, bones and a strong immune system.
Spirulina is an excellent source of B vitamins, particularly vitamin B12. This nutritious food also contains vitamin E, a highly bio-available source of iron, 14 naturally chelating (heavy metal removing) minerals and numerous trace elements.

In addition to being one of the most nutrient-rich foods on earth, Spirulina is low in fat, calories and cholesterol. Many people have found that when they eat Spirulina before a meal, it satisfies their appetite allowing them to reduce their overall food consumption.



Detoxifying Properties
One reason why green foods are so important is because they are high in chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is the pigment that gives green plants their color. Chloropyll is often referred to as "green blood" due to its oxygen potential. Chlorophyll is also thought to be remarkably cleansing and alkalising and assists in the removal of toxins from the body. Grown in only alkaline waters, spirulina is considered to be alkalising for the body.



Anti-allergenic & Anti-infammatory
Spirulina contains major anti-inflammatory compounds, GLA and phycocyanin. Clinical studies show that dietary intake of GLA through Spirulina may decrease the inflammatory symptoms of arthritis. Phycocyanin is a blue pigment that studies show may have anti-inflammatory effects and also improve the liver cancer survival rate.

Spirulina may also have a positive effect on allergic reactions, such as anaphylaxis, by inhibiting mast cell degranulation.



Barley Grass
Health Within Organic Barley Grass powder and tablets are wholesome green foods made from the powdered dehydrated leaves of organically grown young barley plants (Hordeum vulgare). Health Within Barley grass powder is a rich source of dietary fibre for good colon health and regularity. It is one of the few natural sources of minerals, vitamins and antioxidants. The bright green colour reflects the abundance of chlorophyll, a source of magnesium.. Not all barley grass leaves are harvested at their nutritional peak. Since 1935 scientists have known that the highest concentrations of nutrients are present for just a few critical days. By the time the young sprout reaches its nutritional peak it is between 6 and 8 inches tall. At harvest, only the top 10 centimetres of the grass are harvested because this section has the richest content of nutrients. Health Within barley Grass is than dried using low temperature air drying, the grass is powdered using low impact machinery to maintain the high nutritional qulaity and beneficial enzymes found naturally in barley grass.



Chlorella
Chlorella is wonderful for cleansing and detoxifying the body from the inside out and is often refereed to as the body’s “Internal Broom”. Chlorella is an exceptional whole food supplement for maintaining general wellbeing and vitality.
Often referred to as one of Natures Super Foods , chlorella is a microscopic freshwater plant that is one of the most nutritionally dense foods to be found in nature containing key vitamins, macro-minerals, trace minerals, anti-oxidants, essential fatty acids, proteins, nucleic acids and much more, in a form that is highly bi-available and which is therefore a perfect addition to your daily diet.
Health Withins 100% pure, certified organic Chlorella is grown outdoors and gently processed by cracking the cell walls for superior digestibility and absorption. Health Within Chlorella contains no filler or additives.



Green Tea (Camilla sinensis) is a popular beverage in Japan, Korea, India and China (2). Green tea are is steamed after harvesting to inhibit the enzymes that turn the leaves black. This process also protects many of the teas antioxidant properties. Green tea contains antioxidants called epicatechins, most notably epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG). EGCG has been shown to have protective effects against a range of different cancers, as well as offering potential therapeutic benefits (1, 2) .

Spinach is a good sources of calcium, vitamin E and folate (5). Spinach is also a rich source of lutein. Consumption of lutein-rich foods has been shown to decrease the risk of colon cancer (4). Since scientists now estimate that 40-60% of all cancers are directly related to our dietary choices (3), including some of these vegetables in your diet might be essential in providing some daily health insurance.

Broccoli is an excellent source of sulphoraphane, a compound that has been shown to have preventative effects for many cancers, including bowel, stomach, breast, lung and kidney (6). Broccoli is also a great source of lutein, zeaxanthin, calcium, vitamin K, folate and vitamin C (7). Consumption of foods high in lutein has been linked with lower rates of colon cancer. Animal studies have also shown that the antioxidant compounds in broccoli may have protective effects against radioactivity(8).

Aloe Vera has been used medicinally for thousands of years. It is believed to have antiviral, immune stimulating, anti-inflammatory, moisturising and wound-healing effects (9). It contains anthraquinones, which stimulate bowel function and mucopolysaccharides, which can help soothe gut irritation. These properties make it useful for constipation and peptic ulcers.

Kelp (Fucus versiculosus) is a sea vegetable and is an excellent source of iodine. Iodine is essential for the production of thyroid hormones, which are necessary for maintaining normal metabolism in all cells of the body (10).

Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) root has gentle laxative and liver tonic properties (11). It also enhances digestion by stimulating bile production and secretion (12). Dandelion root is a source of various vitamins and minerals, including vitamin A, B complex, vitamin C, vitamin E, potassium, calcium, iron and phosphorus (13).

Milk Thistle (Silybum marianum), also called St. Mary's Thistle is believed to have liver protective, liver regeneration, antioxidant and bile stimulating properties (15). The main active constituents are collectively called silymarin. Its liver protective effects have been proven against many chemicals and hormones, including paracetamol (16), alcohol, oestrogen, antibiotics and iron overload.(18).

Globe artichoke (Cynara scolymus) contains a unique compound called cynarin, which has been found to increase bile production, help lower cholesterol, support kidney function and protect liver cells (17, 18, 19, 20).

L-Glutamine is a precursor to glutathione which has antioxidant actions in the liver and is involved in phase II liver detoxification (21). It also nourishes intestinal cells thereby improving gastrointestinal immunity and allows acid (ammonia) removal via the kidneys (22).
