Presentation by Mark Timon, Formulator of Green Vibrance Powder
Nutrient density refers to the ratio of micronutrients (i.e. vitamins, minerals, polyphenols etc.) to macro-nutrients (i.e. protein, fat and carbohydrate). Relative to the amount of protein, fat and carbohydrate in the foods we eat today, our ancestors commonly received far greater amounts of micronutrients. Human biochemistry adapted to that ancient food supply with its greater nutrient density. It is that same ancient biochemistry that attempts to run us today.
Today something is missing. Indeed, statistics compiled by the U.S. Department of Agriculture verify a precipitous drop in nutrient density within our common food supply in just the last forty years. The loss of trace nutrients is so great as to remove any argument that dietary supplementation may be optional. We firmly believe supplementation is now vital in order to achieve optimal health. Green food supplements, if properly formulated, can provide astounding nutrient density. They can, in effect, return our dietary intake of micronutrients to something more closely resembling the richness of our ancestral Paleolithic diet.
Nutrients in their natural state are highly bioavailable. Green Vibrance delivers a multitude of nutrients that can be used by each cell to support efficient cellular metabolism and maintain health.
There are many ingredients in Green Vibrance: 73 in all. They were chosen with care, in order to maximise the synergism among nutrients. The result delivers healthful nutritional support to the 11 body systems.
Enjoy more complete nutrition:
The ingredients in Green Vibrance were selected to support essential bodily functions without which life cannot be sustained. Cereal grass powders and juices (i.e. certified organic barley, oat, wheat and kamut) deliver virtually all known nutrients and several uncharacterised co-nutrients of great value. For example, cereal grasses contain a hidden “growth factor” that causes young animals to more rapidly develop, growing larger, stronger and healthier with robust immune systems. Those same cereal grasses allow mature animals (and undoubtedly humans) to repair bodily tissues more quickly. Organic alfalfa sprouts, organic broccoli sprouts, organic spirulina, soft-cell chlorella, stabilised rice bran, organic beet juice, organic parsley, organic spinach, organic carrot, green bean, zucchini and sea vegetables enrich the nutrient density and diversity of the primary food ingredients in Green Vibrance.
Our industry leading dose of 25 billion friendly probiotics, balanced by a rich combination of Bifido- and Lacto- bacilli from 12 strains in each serving of Green Vibrance bolsters the one system that must function well first and foremost above all others if health is to be improved or optimised. One must be able to digest food and transport nutrients into the body from the gastrointestinal tract before health can be sustained. The 12 strains of probiotics in Green Vibrance help assure a healthy G.I. tract by building and maintaining colonies of robust intestinal flora.
The strains in Green Vibrance help break down proteins for easy assimilation, assist in the transportation of minerals and B-vitamins across the intestinal mucosa, synthesise several B-vitamins, help maintain healthy cholesterol and create an unfriendly environment for unfriendly bacteria and yeast (Candida). Natural antibiotic substances made by some of the probiotics can reduce the number of unhealthy microbes in the gut.
Their action is supported by both fructo-oligosaccharides and FiberAid™ arabinogalactans. Each of these prebiotics plays a role in reducing the number of “bad” bacteria and their colonies by feeding and boosting the number of beneficial bacteria. Most strains used in Green Vibrance are derived from the human gastrointestinal tract, and then cultivated in a contaminant-free production laboratory. One is from a plant source (L. plantarum) and four others were isolated from cow’s milk and cheese (L. helveticus, L. lactis, S. thermophilus, & P. shermanii). The “human” strains originally came from the soil and water in the ancient environment, inoculating the human digestive tract and entering into a symbiotic relationship with us many millennia ago. Indeed, each person on Earth harbours different ratios of probiotic bacteria – and quite often a few different strains – in his or her intestines. The differences reflect the parental lineage and home environment of each of us. We all “picked up” various strains at various times from mother’s milk, and from dirty hands or toys we may have put in our mouths during outside play. Even an apple picked up off the ground, lightly buffed on a shirt and then eaten, can deliver a specific strain or two of probiotic (and possibly pathogenic) bacteria to the gut.
Chlorophyll from the green foods in Green Vibrance further supports intestinal health. Apple fibre from certified organic whole apple powder plus sunflower lecithin help support elimination of heavy metals, cholesterol and toxins from the intestinal tract before they can be absorbed. To a lesser degree, they can perform similar tasks in the circulating blood itself.
Over time, the liver became quite adept at denaturing, destroying and getting rid of unnecessary substances in everyday foods. Keep in mind that 40% of a plain carrot is unneeded, toxic material. Your liver has no trouble handling that. But when it comes to detoxifying some of the modern chemicals which are absorbed by, and circulate through, your body, we believe the liver needs a little help. That is why Green Vibrance Powder has added liver support ingredients.
Human metabolism is built on oxidation, which both keeps us alive and slowly pushes us toward the grave. The quiet damage to cells caused by necessary cellular oxidation defines the degenerative changes of aging. Oxidative damage is involved, too, in the progression of every known “disease of affluence” such as cardiovascular disease, arthritis, diabetes and others. Certainly one’s personal genetic code and lifestyle also contribute.
Aging and degenerative disease are ubiquitous – we will all encounter them in time. Nutritive antioxidants may diminish the severity and slow the advance of oxidative damage. Each serving of Green Vibrance delivers a powerful 960 mg of herbal antioxidants in addition to the beta-carotene, vitamin C, vitamin E and other antioxidants naturally present from the other plant components of the formula. These antioxidants, plus lecithin, soluble fibres, policosanol and other ingredients, help support cardiovascular health.* A strong heart and clear arteries are essential to delivering nutrients to, and removing waste from, every cell in the body. Ginkgo biloba extract, grape seed extract, green tea extract, pomegranate extract and Silymarin (milk thistle) extract are all known to improve peripheral circulation.
The immune support delivered by Green Vibrance is found in its content of betaglucans, ImmunEnhancer™ arabinogalactans and Astragalus extract. But let us not lose sight of the immune-enhancing effect of a healthy digestive tract. 50% of your own immune cells are found there. Well nourished, vibrant cells, amply protected by the army of antioxidants in Green Vibrance, are themselves resistant to disease.
Green Vibrance also supports good skeletal health, undoubtedly due to its alkalizing nature, bioavailable boron and CalZbone®, an extract of Cissus quadrangularis that has been clinically shown to improve bone mineral density. Beginning with version 9.0, Green Vibrance added another key nutrient for bone health: Vitamin D3. The vitamin D3 in Green Vibrance is a specially-made material from an actual plant source, lichen. As such, Green Vibrance is now safe for vegans.
The entire Green Vibrance formula was designed and balanced to help establish and sustain good health. Click on the Supplement Facts tag above to see a complete list of ingredients.
Green Vibrance Powder contains a number of alkalizing green grasses, and a range of nutritious superfood extracts. In each 12.1g (1 scoop) serving you will find:

To begin restoring your body to optimum balance, take a daily scoop of Green Vibrance with water or your favourite juice/smoothie. Alternatively, you can take your daily greens in capsule form. Once opened, care should be taken to store Green Vibrance Powder in a fridge or freezer.
Q: Is it safe for me to take Green Vibrance while I am pregnant?
A: It is safe to take Green Vibrance during pregnancy. In fact, many women have used Green Vibrance throughout their pregnancies to great benefit for both themselves and their child. Green Vibrance has been formulated to provide everyone with a broad width of essential nutrients including a number of trace elements that can improve circulation, encourage healthy growth and even improve digestion, which can in turn help ensure that nutrient intake is as efficient as possible.
According to a number of online sources, ginkgo balboa should be avoided by pregnant mothers. However, the potential dangers associated with this plant extract are mainly related to dosage and cardiovascular integrity. Unless you intend to take hundreds of milligrams of ginko balboa, or have a pre-existing cardiovascular problem, you should not suffer from its inclusion in Green Vibrance.
Q: Is Green Vibrance safe for children?
A: Yes, Green Vibrance is suitable for children, although Super Kids Vibrance may be preferable since it has been specifically balanced to meet the nutritional needs of young people.
Q: Can I use Green Vibrance if I am breastfeeding?
A: Yes. Green Vibrance is a fantastic way of ensuring that both mother and child have full access to the nutrients needed to promote energy levels and healthy growth. It can also help to keep pH levels balanced, which is essential during development.
Q: Can I mix Green Vibrance with other vitamins, proteins or super foods?
A: Yes. Green Vibrance is very healthy in and of itself, but you can combine it with other powdered supplements if desired, and we would actively advise that you supplement it with healthy omega-3 oils for more complete nutrition.
Q: Can taking Green Vibrance reduce the risk of cancer?
A: Yes. According to a wide-ranging study by Imperial College London, eating as many as ten portions of fruit and veg per day can reduce cancer risk by 13%.
Q: I am going through chemotherapy and/or radiation, can I still use Green Vibrance?
A: Yes. Anecdotal evidence from our clients suggests that many customers undergoing chemotherapy actually feel better during chemo while taking Green Vibrance.
Q: Do I need to take a multivitamin with Green Vibrance?
A: Green Vibrance contains almost every nutrient known to man, so it is not technically necessary. That said, many people like to supplement Green Vibrance with Rainbow Vibrance for added antioxidant support.
Q: Can I give Green Vibrance to my cat or dog?
A: Yes. Many pets significantly benefit from the inclusion of Green Vibrance in their diet. Just use the child-sized dosages listed on the usage tab to the left.
Q: Can I put Green Vibrance in a feeding tube?
A: There should be no problem with taking Green Vibrance through a feeding tube, but we would always advise that you seek advice from a qualified medical practitioner first.
Q: Does Green Vibrance contain soy?
A: No, Green Vibrance version 10.3 and earlier contained lecithin from soy. However, there was never any detectable soy compounds found in Green Vibrance. Today, Green Vibrance contains lecithin derived from sunflower.
Q: Is there caffeine in Green Vibrance?
A: There is a very small amount of caffeine in Green Vibrance – 4/10ths of a milligram, which comes from the decaffeinated green tea.
Q: How is Green Vibrance gluten-free when it contains wheat grass?
A: Our wheat grass is harvested before the jointing stage, prior to sprouting. Since it is sprouting that produces the grain, and thus the gluten, our wheat grass extract stays completely gluten-free.
Q: Can I use Green Vibrance as a weight loss product?
A: Yes, Green Vibrance Powder can be taken as a meal replacement, although we would advise mixing it with one level scoop of Pumpkin Seed Protein Powder in order to keep yourself feeling sated.
Q: When is the best time to take Green Vibrance?
A: The best time is about half an hour after a light breakfast. Many clients tend to use Green Vibrance in a smoothie for breakfast though, which is also fine. The most important thing is to make sure that you're taking Green Vibrance Powder routinely, at a time which is convenient for you.
Q: I left the Green Vibrance out on the counter, is it still good?
A: Yes, we advise freezing or refrigerating Green Vibrance Powder to stop the delicate probiotics it contains from denaturing but, as long as it is not exposed to excessive heat or moisture, Green Vibrance Powder is still perfectly healthy after a night on the kitchen counter.
Q: Can I cook with Green Vibrance?
A: No. Heating Green Vibrance Powder will kill many of the probiotics and denature many of the delicate trace nutrients it contains. Green Vibrance Powder is a vibrant, raw powder that should be mixed into drinks or smoothies – never heated.
Q: I have osteoporosis and my doctor prescribed that I supplement with a specific mg's of ELEMENTAL calcium daily. Does Green Vibrance Powder contain elemental calcium?
A: Last time it was checked, there was 156 mg of elemental calcium in Green Vibrance Powder. Green Vibrance also contains boron, zinc, vitamin D and vitamin C – all of which can help to improve calcium uptake and ensure that your body can use it to properly mend your bones.
Q: Is Green Vibrance vegan?
A: Yes, the most current version of Green Vibrance (version 14) is vegan because the vitamin D3 now comes from lichen rather than lanolin.
Q: Can I use Green Vibrance more than once a day?
A: Yes. Green Vibrance can be taken one or more times per day. More than once per day and up to three times per day is recommended for crisis intervention.
Q: My Green Vibrance Powder tastes and looks a little different to last times...What gives?
A: Green Vibrance is a food and therefore is not standardised like most supplements. Depending on weather conditions and/or when or where the crops are harvested, the taste and colour may vary very slightly.
Q: I found Green Vibrance in my cabinet; it is still in date, is it safe to take?
A: Yes. There are two desiccant packets in each container of Green Vibrance. One is a moisture-absorbing packet, the other an oxygen-absorbing packet. Removing moisture and air from the container helps to keep it fresh. However, once opened you should store Green Vibrance in your refrigerator or freezer (best).
Q: Is Green Vibrance free from common allergens?
A: Yes, Green Vibrance is free from common allergens.
