Ultimate GreenZone is a convenient whole food supplement you can use to maximize your overall nutrition or as a quick meal replacement. It provides whole food nutrients that are easily absorbed and is gluten-free and pH balancing. It also contains a proper balance of fats, proteins and carbohydrates for stabilizing blood sugar and promoting weight loss.
Unlike protein powders and diet drinks, the nutrients in Ultimate GreenZone are derived almost exclusively from foods and herbs, many of which are considered superfoods. These whole foods help to support the body’s immune functions, strengthen connective tissues, enhance detoxification and increase energy and overall well-being. Ultimate GreenZone is a great food supplement for a healthy pregnancy, athletic training and recovery from chronic illness. It has a low glycemic index, making it a great whole food supplement for people with blood sugar problems as well.
Here are the ingredients in this green superfood supplement.
Seeds (chia, flax, quinoa, amaranth, millet and brown rice)
These seeds are a great source of proteins, carbohdyrates and healthy fats. Seeds are loaded with nutrition because they have to support a growing plant when they sprout. Many of these seeds are considered superfoods because of their nutritional density. They are also good sources of fiber, vitamin E and monounsaturated fats that help keep our heart healthy and our body disease free.
Vegetables (kale, spinach, broccoli, asparagus, artichoke, beet, carrot)
Most Americans don’t eat enough vegetables, so GreenZone supplements vegetable intake with these vegetable powders. Broccoli and kale are cruciferous vegetables, which means they contain sulfur compounds that aid liver detoxification and reduce the risk of cancer. Kale and spinach are dark, green vegetables, which contain chlorophyll, a great source of magnesium which is missing in most American diets. Beets have historically been used to build the blood and nourish the liver. Artichoke is also beneficial for the liver, while asparagus supports kidney function. Carrots are rich in carotenoids, precursors to vitamin A that promote the health of the eyes and immune system. These are just a few of the many benefits these vegetables provide.
Spirulina and chlorella
These algae are a great source of amino acids. They help to stabilize brain and nerve function, balance blood sugar levels and increase energy.
Papaya and Acerola Cherry extract
Papaya fruit is a source of the protein digesting enzyme, papain. It is also a source of antioxidants like vitamin C, carotenoids and lycopene. Acerola cherries are a natural source of vitamin C and bioflavonoids.
Herbs (alfalfa, licorice root, lemon grass, chicory, horsetail, pau d’arco bark, parsley)
These herbs provide both nutritional and medicinal benefits to Ultimate GreenZone. Alfalfa is rich in trace minerals and other nutrients which have earned it the reputation of being the “king” of herbs. Horsetail is also a good source of minerals for building healthy bones, skin, hair and fingernails. Licorice root helps to stabilize blood sugar levels and increase stamina. Pau d’arco helps fight intestinal yeast and bacteria. Parsley supports kidney function and chicory helps feed the friendly bacteria in the colon.
Sodium Copper Chlorophyllin
This is a stabilized form of chlorophyll, the green “blood” of plants. Chlorophyll helps oxygenate the blood and has powerful deodorizing and antioxidant properties.
This is a form of fiber that is indigestible by the human body, but helps to feed the friendly bacteria in the digestive tract, promoting intestinal health. These friendly bacteria or probiotics, play a role in the immune system by inhibiting yeast and unfriendly bacteria in the colon.
Other ingredients include lemon bioflavonoids, soy lecithin and bromelain from pineapple.
Mix 2 scoops (21g) in 8 to 12 ounces of water or juice once daily. It combines well with pineapple or apple juice. You can also add it to smoothies. You may want to start with 1/2 scoop and work up to 2 scoops, as this product can be very detoxifying if you’re not used to eating whole foods.
