Proven Active Ingredients
Organic Greens Blend: Our organic greens blend features a transparently dosed 5-gram blend of organic greens form a combination of nutrient-packed foods including spinach, parsley, kale, barley grass, chlorella, bell pepper, green apple, banana, sweet potato and broccoli.
With high micronutrient and antioxidant content, these foods are high in essential vitamins and minerals like vitamin A and C, which help support immune function, reduce oxidative stress and support energy production.*
Organic Reds Blend: In addition to our greens blend, we’ve included a transparently dosed 2.5-gram organic reds blend containing raspberry, blueberry, strawberry, cherry, pomegranates and cranberry.
Dark red fruits are rich in vitamins, minerals, and polyphenols which may help reduce oxidative stress, inflammation, and exercise-induced muscle damage.*
Together this collection of fruits, vegetables, and herbs from our organic greens and reds blend help inhibit free radical production, optimize cellular metabolic activity, and support nitric oxide levels within the body.*
Kiwifruit Powder:A small fruit that packs a nutritional punch. Its green flesh is rich in micronutrients and antioxidants, including potassium, vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K, and folate.*
Kiwifruit also supports healthy digestion due to the presence of a proteolytic enzyme called actinidin that can help break down protein.* More specifically, kiwifruit extract has been noted to improve digestion of several common proteins, including cheese, yogurt, beef, fish, and raw eggs.*
DigeZyme® Multi-Enzyme Complex: A proprietary combination of enzymes that help in proper digestion and better absorption of the foods we eat.* This multi-enzyme complex consists of:
- α-Amylase: Breaks down carbohydrates such as starch, glycogen and polysaccharides into smaller units.*
- Protease: Breaks down protein and supports immune function.*
- Cellulase: Breaks down cellulose and chitin. It helps to free nutrients in both fruits and vegetables.*
- Lactase: Breaks down lactose (milk sugar) and useful for lactose intolerance.*
- Lipase: Breaks down lipids and improves fat utilization and also supports healthy gallbladder function.*
Research shows that DigeZyme® can enhance the bioavailability of vital nutrients such as vitamin C and β-carotene, and it can also decrease the pain and tenderness induced by exercise.*
The DOMS decreasing effects of DigeZyme® may be due to its ability to reduce levels of two biomarkers of muscle damage in creatine kinase and lactate dehydrogenase.*
LactoSpore® (Bacillus coagulans, MTCC 5856): A commercial probiotic preparation containing Bacillus coagulans, MTCC 5856. Clinical research notes that supplementation with LactoSpore® may promote gut health by significantly decreasing the severity of symptoms associated with various GI disorders and promote a higher quality of life compared to placebo.* LactoSpore is Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS).
