There is an abundance of options when it comes to choosing a greens powder to include in your lifestyle. You’ve likely heard that nutrient-dense greens are beneficial for our wellbeing, but not all greens powders are created equal. While it’s easy to pick-up a container of greens with aesthetic branding and key marketing terms such as ‘high in antioxidants’, or ‘medicinal plant powder’, the look and marketing of a product does not always accurately represent the quality and efficacy of what’s actually inside the product. Here are 6 things that make Enerex Greens Unique:
Juiced Greens Powder
Made with certified organic and gluten-free kamut, alfalfa, oat and barley grasses. These nutrient-dense grasses are cold-pressed and dehydrated at low temperatures. Cold-pressed juicing requires advanced processing techniques, and more plants to create the final product. If you’ve ever used a wheatgrass juicer, you would know that it requires a large amount of wheatgrass to extract a very small amount of juice. Enerex Greens are the coolest greens on the market, they have never been exposed to temperatures above 31°C (88°F), this is significantly lower than the market best of 41°C (106°F). Dehydrating at low temperatures is essential in order to prevent oxidation, and retain the maximum potential of vitamin, antioxidant, and living enzyme content.
Grown on Volcanic Land
Enerex Greens (kamut, barley, alfalfa) are grown on 2,800 acres of certified organic farmland. This land is situated on an ancient volcanic lakebed in the mountains of Utah, at an altitude of 5,000ft. This altitude in combination with mineral-rich topsoil contributes to a significantly higher chlorophyll, vitamin, and mineral content. Annual crop rotations and the fact that the crops are mineralized by the seasonal run-off from the surrounding hills ensure maximum nutrition in each harvest. The young grasses are harvested in their pre-joint stage, when their nutrient density is at its peak, they are then rinsed, juiced and dried onsite at 31°C (88°F). A truly chemical-free supplement, grown in nutrient rich soil, far from contamination.
Contains No Fillers
Every ingredient in Enerex Greens is nutritionally wealthy from the Hawaiian-grown spirulina to the lecithin. Spirulina is blue-green algae, containing chlorophyll (green) and phycocyanin (blue) phytonutrients. Phycocyanin has been shown to support the nervous system and brain, and helps produce new stem cells in bone marrow. Chlorophyll, which is called “the green blood of plants” closely resembles the hemoglobin found in red blood cells. Spirulina is one of the most nutritious foods known, containing a wide spectrum of vitamins and minerals. Lecithin is a fat that is essential for creating healthy cell membranes, lecithin naturally contains phospholipids including phosphatidylcholine and phosphatidylserine which are imperative for cognitive function, nerve health, liver repair, mood and stress support. Enerex Greens formula contains an oil-free powdered lecithin from non-GMO soybeans containing 97% phosphatides.
Formulated with Vegan Probiotics
Probiotics support the absorption and assimilation of nutrients. Enerex adds advanced professional-grade probiotics to both the Original and Mixed Berries formulas. These good bacteria include human strains of L. Acidophilus, B. Bifidum and B. Longum, these particular strains are research supported for maintaining a healthy gastrointestinal tract. Unlike most probiotic cultures, these do not need to be refrigerated as they are not dairy or soil based. These human origin strains are resistant to digestive acids, so they are also able to reach the intestinal tract, and are more likely to stay and colonize for better digestion.
Contains No Herbal Extracts
Enerex Greens Original and Mixed Berries do not include herbs or herbal extracts. Herbal extracts are not food, but are medicines for specific health conditions. Herbal medicines should only be used for a limited period of time to help correct an illness. They are not recommended for long-term use — such as in a greens formula you consume regularly. Greens products that add herbal extracts may give the impression that the formula is ‘better’. However, there is concern that giving standardized herbal remedies, even in small doses, to seniors, young children, and pregnant or nursing mothers could interfere with hormonal balance. Enerex Greens are safe for the whole family, including seniors, young children, and pregnant or nursing mothers. Wellness for all.
Made with Real Berries
Enerex Greens Mixed Berries is more than just a great taste, this vegan greens option is boosted with 9 berry super-fruits that are packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants (with a 3,300 ORAC value per serving). This includes aronia berry, raspberry, acerola berry, black currant, cranberry, acai berry, strawberry, blueberry, and goji berry. Enerex Greens Mixed Berries provides a synergistic combination of superfoods that is safe for the whole family, this option lightly sweetened with monk fruit extract, which has a zero glycemic impact, also making it safe for diabetics and those with hypoglycemia.
Enerex Greens was the first greens product to enter the Canadian market back in 1997, it was also the flagship product for this Vancouver-based brand. Their unique blend is scientifically researched and found to be 2-3 times more nutrient-dense than other brands. It is one of few true juiced greens products, and it’s a supplement made with everyone in mind. Adding 2 teaspoons of Enerex Greens to your daily routine is the simplest way to streamline your body with raw vitamins, minerals, enzymes, probiotics and phytonutrients to give you more natural energy, support immunity, and nourish you from the inside out.
