What are Green Superfoods? A Guide to Nutrient-Dense Greens
Green superfoods are nutrient-dense grass shoots and green vegetables packed with essential vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients.
They are natural, vegan-friendly multivitamins capable of providing you with most of the amino acids, digestive enzymes and healthy bacteria that you need to maintain your good health and achieve optimum balance.
Green Superfoods: Rich in Antioxidants
Green superfoods like kale, parsley and spinach are rich in antioxidant flavonoids; powerful organic compounds that bind to reactive oxygen species in your blood and help you to counter the buildup of harmful free radicals in your cells.
These antioxidant-rich green superfoods have a powerful anti-inflammatory effect on your body. They can help to alleviate joint pain, reduce oxidative stress in your cells and improve your resistance to a great many degenerative diseases.
These include but are not limited to osteoarthritis, inflammatory bowel disease and numerous cancers.
Green Superfoods: Alkalising
Most green superfoods are also very alkalising. They contain alkaline minerals such as magnesium, iron and zinc, which help to raise your body's overall pH levels, and neutralise the harmful acidic compounds that build up in your tissues as a result of pollution, stress and bad dietary habits.

Henry G. Bieler, M.D
By helping you to alkalise your tissues and bring your body back into optimum pH balance, green superfoods also help prevent red blood cells clumping together, and grant you the ability to flush harmful acidic compounds from your system.
Green Superfoods: Packed with Chlorophyll
More importantly though, many green superfoods also contain large quantities of chlorophyll, or ‘liquified sun energy’.
Chlorophyll is an important biomolecule responsible for photosynthesis. It has an almost identical molecular structure to hemoglobin, and can be used by the human body to rebuild and replenish red blood cells.
Accordingly, It can help you to detoxify your body, and supply cells with the minerals, nutrients and oxygen they need to flourish.
Chlorophyll also has the rare ability to bind with many carcinogenic chemicals in your bloodstream, and plays an important role in supporting the growth of helpful aerobic bacteria in your intestines.
Chlorophyll can help alter our internal terrain to discourage the buildup of harmful colonies of anaerobic bacteria and fungi, such as candida, by cleansing our cells of the toxic waste that they rely on for survival, and even plays a part in boosting your energy levels by helping you to properly oxygenate your cells.
A natural antidote to many health problems, this 'plant blood' can:
- provide your organs with iron and other essential minerals
- purify your liver
- increase your energy levels
- detoxify your cells
- prevent the buildup of bacteria in wounds
- make blood and tissues more alkaline
- reduce pain caused by inflammation
- eliminate bad odour
- soothe ulcer tissues
Chlorophyll can be found in all green vegetables, but this vital biomolecule is particularly abundant in certain green superfoods such as oat grass, chlorella and spirulina.
Green Superfoods Can Help to Fight Cholesterol
That’s not all either. Broccoli sprouts, alfalfa grass and a number of other nutrient-dense green superfoods are also packed with fibre, which binds to bile acid during digestion; removing this cholesterol-based compound from your system and forcing your body to deplete its cholesterol reserves to create more.
Clinical trials show that people supplementing their diets with fibre-rich green superfoods for even a few days notice a marked reduction in their cholesterol levels, and it’s thought that these powerful alkalising vegetable and grass products could help to prevent blood clots and heart failure.
Adding Nutrient-Dense Greens to the Diet
While it’s possible to find many of these potent green superfoods at your local grocery store, we believe that it's much more efficient, and much more sensible, to nourish your body with a carefully formulated green superfood supplement instead.
A green superfood supplement is a blend of dehydrated green superfoods, amino acids and digestive enzymes formulated specifically to ensure that you get the right balance of nutrient-dense vegetable and green grass products in your diet.
