Fats That Heal:
With so many greens to choose from, why not take a step Beyond Greens? A key factor that sets Beyond Greens apart is its high amount of essential fatty acids (EFAs). Each tablespoon provides over 1,000 mg of high quality oil from the same balanced mixture of flax, sunflower and sesame seeds as is used in Udo`s Choice Ultimate Oil Blend.
EFAs are required by every cell of the body for proper development, optimal function and structural renewal. Research shows that EFAs benefit inflammation, autoimmune diseases, skin conditions, high blood pressure, cholesterol levels and neural functions as well as brain function, hormonal health, child development, bone strength and insulin function. Furthermore, EFAs increase fat metabolism, decrease fat production and storage and are a source of long-lasting energy, strength and endurance.
Deep Cleansing Fibre:
Beyond Greens supplies soluble fibre, which carries cholesterol out of the body and feeds friendly intestinal bacteria, as well as insoluble fibre, which adds needed bulk to assist regular elimination. These fibres help reduce the risk of developing disease, stabilize blood sugar levels and reduce cravings. The average person consumes only about ten grams of fibre a day, which is less than half of the recommended daily amount.
Without adequate fibre in the diet, food takes much longer to pass through the digestive tract. This stagnating food builds up `sludge` or residue that clings to the microvilli, which are hair-like projections that line the entire intestinal tract. When these microvilli are covered with residue, nutrients cannot be fully absorbed for health and energy. The fibre in Beyond Greens loosens this residue and gently scrubs the microvilli. Once the microvilli are clean, they can absorb a much greater amount of nutrients and vitamins. Three servings of Beyond Greens throughout the day will add five grams of fibre to the diet.
Beyond Greens also contains antioxidant-rich whole food concentrates and phytonutrients, such as greens, carrots, soy sprouts, kale, burdock root, bilberry, hawthorn and kelp, as well as standardized Grape Seed Extract and Ginkgo Biloba. Increasingly, scientific studies are confirming that antioxidants are one of the most powerful, natural disease fighters. Antioxidants combat the free radical damage that is at the root of many degenerative diseases as well as the aging process. Flaxseed is the highest known source of lignans, which are special antioxidants found in plant fibre. Research is uncovering their amazing antibacterial, antiviral and antitumour activity and they have also have shown positive scientific results for relieving the symptoms of menopause and treating hormone-related diseases like breast, uterine and prostate cancers.
Digestive enzymes are only a few of the thousands of known enzymes. They are like scissors that cut up the foods we eat into basic building blocks that our body then absorbs and reassembles to build cells, tissues, organs, glands and entire body systems. They have been included in Beyond Greens to ensure the proper breakdown and therefore optimum absorption of the full-spectrum of essential and healing compounds in this formula.
The combination of fibre, detoxifying greens and digestive enzymes makes Beyond Greens an effective deep cleansing formula that rejuvenates the gastro-intestinal system, and provides day-to-day digestive support to maintain optimal nutrient absorption.
