Why These Natural Ingredients?
The Organic Advantage Why Organic is So Much Better-DEEPER GREENS is
an Organic food, deriving its ORAC value from natural concentrates of
common foods as opposed to botanical extracts or other purified metabolites.
We use organically grown vegetables and fruits that meet the strict new
USDA criteria for organic food claims. By using only organic foods, we
are sourcing raw materials that are stronger and more robust than foods
grown with the help of pesticides and other chemicals. Plants consistently
measure dramatically higher in total phenolic compounds when compared
with conventionally grown produce.
ORAC Value-Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) is a unit value
assigned by researchers to measure antioxidant value. Foods with a high
ORAC value are beneficial to the body by increasing plasma antioxidant
levels. Since these values are difficult to influence in the body, any
increase in plasma antioxidants is significant. Raw fruits and vegetables
have a unique combination of antioxidants that have proven better than
supplementation with individual antioxidant vitamins.
The Most Potent Grasses Available. While most green drinks start with
powdered grasses, we have formulated DEEPER GREENS with a 33:1 grass
juice extract, giving a significant boost to grass values and the resulting
pH balancing benefit to the body.
*****Deeper Greens The Added Edge*****By choosing to broaden the scope
of the traditional green drink, we have formulated DEEPER GREENS for
excellent pH and fiber values, but also as a high ORAC product that helps
patients overcome diets lacking the necessary National Cancer Institute
5-a-day intake of raw fruits and vegetables.
