Greens First provides many of the phytonutrient and antioxidant benefits of a fruit and vegetable-rich diet, especially of vibrantly colored fruits and dark green vegetables. While eating 5 to 10 servings of fruits and vegetables per day is ideal, it may be difficult to accomplish consistently.  Greens First contains 49 super foods, extracts and concentrates including super greens, vegetables, fruits, probiotics, soluble and insoluble fibers, herbs, spices, natural flavonoids, enzymes and lecithin.  Greens First contains 30 calories and 3 grams of carbohydrates per 9.4 gram scoop serving mixed with 6 to 8 oz. of water, and the antioxidant power of 10+ servings of fruit and vegetables via an independent ORAC analysis (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity).*

 Adding Greens First to your diet may help:
•Boost Energy  /  •Promote a Healthy Heart  /  •Improve Digestion  /  •Boost the Immune System  /  •Alkalize and Balance pH  /  •Support Normal Blood Sugar  /  •Fight Aging  /  •Promote Normal Cholesterol  /  •Assist Weight Management  /  •No Sugar Added!  /  •No Wheat, Dairy, MSG, Artificial Sweeteners or Preservatives!

Greens First tastes great alone but can also be mixed with Dream Protein for a yummy “whole food” meal replacement shake.

How Do Birds and Berries Depend On Each Other?

For their cycle of life.  Birds eat the yummy berry fruits – blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, and more – then fly hither and yon spreading the berry seeds.  The berry seeds have more places to grow and spread, and the cycle repeats.  Phytonutrients are the phytochemicals that give berries their attractive and lively colors.  These highly visible colors attract the seed-distributing birds that feast on the fruit and spread the wealth.

 

Berries, in general, contain vitamins (Vitamins C & E are common), minerals (Manganese and Niacin, too), and fiber (4-9 grams per cup) plus a burst of succulent flavor in every bite.  These fun-to-eat foods may help prevent heart disease and cancer, boost the immune system, have antiviral and antibacterial properties, and slow the aging process.  These healthful benefits are due to the concentration of phytonutrients which have an antioxidant effect (kind of like anti-rust).  Besides the deeply colored berries, strongly colored vegetables, nuts, flax seeds, tea and dark chocolate also tend to be high in the healthful phytochemicals. 

 

Would you rather get your daily dose of phytonutrients and antioxidants from your cup of tea, carrots and broccoli, dark chocolate, or brightly colored berries?
