Excerpted from "The Greatest Food on Earth"




Our vitality is the sum total of the health of each cell of the body. In order to achieve
optimal health, the immune system must be strong, and a robust gastro-intestinal tract
must draw in a complete selection of healthful nutrients. Those nutrients must in turn be
delivered to all the cells of the body, even those at the very edge of your fingers and
toes.


Green Vibrance is a concentrated superfood with a purpose:
Our internal biochemistries are nearly identical to that of our hunter-gatherer ancestors.
On each side of random periods of starvation, they enjoyed wild meats, fruits, seeds,
plant flowers, leaves and stems. The animals they hunted were wild, and the plants they
ate grew from virgin soil. The foods our ancestors gathered in the wild, and consumed
usually presented far greater nutrient density than foods we eat today. Nutrient density
refers to the ratio of trace nutrients (i.e. vitamins, minerals, polyphenols, etc.) to macro-
nutrients (protein, fat and carbohydrate.) Relative to the amount of protein, fat and
carbohydrate in the foods they ate, our ancestors commonly received far greater
amounts of trace nutrients. Human biochemistry adapted to that ancient food supply
with its greater nutrient density, and it is largely that same biochemistry that attempts to
run us today.

Our modern food supply has, over the last 60 years, finally achieved the goal of
delivering enough macro-nutrients, especially protein, to allow humans to achieve their
full, genetically coded stature. We are now, finally, on average, as tall as Cro-Magnon
man and woman. In fact, the foods of today certainly supply more fat and carbohydrate
than our hunter-gatherer ancestors had to contend with. But 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.

Green food supplements, if properly formulated, can provide astounding nutrient density.
They can, in effect, return our dietary intake to something more closely approximating
the richness of our ancestral, Paleolithic diet.

To make you healthier and stronger. Green Vibrance feeds each cell what it needs to run
at peak efficiency, and then helps each nutrient get where it needs to go.


Green Vibrance:



Nutrient Density:
Green Vibrance uses specially selected certified organic, wild harvested and wild crafted
concentrated foods to support and improve these basic four bodily functions essential to
life. Five organic cereal grass juices alone deliver virtually all known nutrients and several
“growth factors” that cause the young to grow larger and stronger Alfalfa sprouts,
broccoli sprouts, carrot, spinach, parsley, zucchini, green bean, spirulina, chlorella,
stabilized rice bran and Hydrilla verticillata enrich nutrient density and diversity of Green
Vibrance.


The Probiotics:
Our industry-leading 25 billion probiotics per serving at date of manufacture improves
digestion, the one system that must function well if health is to be maintained Probiotics
in Green Vibrance break down proteins for easy assimilation, help transport minerals
across the intestinal mucosa and synthesize several B-vitamins. They simultaneously
create an unfriendly (acidic) environment for unfriendly bacteria and yeast, reducing the
size of their colonies. Probiotics are supported by fructo-oligosaccharides and Fiber-Aid™
arabinogalactans. Each of these prebiotics helps expand the colonies of beneficial
probiotics.


Supporting Cast:
Chlorophyll from the green foods supports intestinal and liver health, improves oxygen
delivery by the blood, supports elimination of certain toxins and heavy metals, and offers
additional protection in other ways.  Fiber from organic whole apple helps remove heavy
metals. Lecithin helps maintain the structure of every cell membrane, provides
neurotransmitters and, along with policosanol, supports healthy cholesterol levels and
nerve function. Our patented Phytoboron helps assure bone and joint health, and helps
normalize primary hormonal levels in men and women.

Antioxidants can slow aging by combating free radical damage. Each serving of Green
Vibrance delivers a powerful 120 mg. of herbal antioxidants in addition to the beta-
carotene, vitamin C, vitamin E and other antioxidants naturally present in other
ingredients. Ginkgo biloba, grape seed and Silymarin (milk thistle) extracts, all potent
antioxidants, also improve peripheral circulation.

To strengthen immunity, Green Vibrance combines Beta-glucans, ImmunEnhancer™
arabinogalactans, astragalus extract, and Chloramphenicol free royal jelly with a healthy
digestive tract and well-fed cells supported by an army of antioxidants.


The Benefits:
The Green Vibrance formula was designed and balanced to help establish good health. Its
sixty ingredients were chosen carefully to support:



Overview:

Human vitality can be described as the combined vitality – what we call “Vibrance” --  of
each cell in the body. Green Vibrance provides trace nutrition that should help each cell
to function at peak efficiency. When we push each cell toward peak efficiency through
diet and supplementation, the result may be increased energy and endurance, greater
clarity of thought, more robust immunity, and a general shift in all bodily functions
toward the ideal.

Green Vibrance achieves these goals by addressing some very basic and essential
biological requirements.

1.) A healthy gastrointestinal tract must function efficiently.

2.) The body must take in sufficient quantities of a complete group of healthful
nutrients.  and

3.) Those nutrients must be delivered to all cells of the body, even those at the
periphery of the capillaries' reach.


Under these influences, optimal health can be achieved, manifested by a strong immune
system, sustained energy production, and systems that run smoothly and cleanly.

A nutritional formula should have a well-defined purpose in order to deliver true value to
the consumer, and delivering true value is the goal of Vibrant Health. A formula’s
components should be present at potencies that will achieve the stated goal. Green
Vibrance is designed as a concentrated, nutrient-dense food from vegetable sources that
is meant to:


Nutrient Density:
Nutrient density refers to the ratio of micro- nutrients (i.e. vitamins, minerals,
polyphenols, etc.) to macro-nutients (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 micro- nutrients. 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.

But 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 mandatory 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 micro- nutrients to something more
closely approximating 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.


Ingredients:

Concentrated 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 alfalfa, barley, oat, wheat, and Kamut) deliver virtually all known nutrients and
several uncharacterized 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,
stabilized rice bran, organic beet juice, organic parsley, organic spinach, organic carrot,
green bean, zucchini, Hydrilla verticillata and three sea vegetables enrich the nutrient
density and diversity of the primary food ingredients in Green Vibrance.


Probiotics & Enzymes -
Our industry leading, dose of 25 billion friendly probiotics 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 optimized. 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 throughout the
intestinal tract. The strains in Green Vibrance help break down proteins for easy
assimilation, help transport minerals and B-vitamins across the intestinal mucosa,
synthesize several B-vitamins, help maintain healthy cholesterol, and create an unfriendly
(acidic) environment for unfriendly bacteria and yeast (Candida). Natural antibiotic
substances made by some of the probiotics can reduce the number of unhealthful
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 harbors 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.


Enzymes -
Every food contains the three macro-nutrients, protein, fat and carbohydrate. Green
Vibrance is no exception. Whole foods contain enzymes in their natural state that can
help their breakdown and release of nutrients when eaten. We can expect to find some
of these enzymes in Green Vibrance. Yet even though it is made up of gently processed,
certified organic and natural foods, we recognize that some of the natural enzyme
content has been lost simply by changing fresh, whole foods into powders. We have,
therefore, added a sufficient quantity of plant and fungal enzymes to match the amount
of macronutrients in Green Vibrance as a corrective measure to support efficient delivery
of those nutrients Green Vibrance.


Supporting Cast -
Chlorophyll from the green foods in Green Vibrance further supports the action of the
probiotics. Apple fiber from our certified organic whole apple powder plus 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.


Lecithin -
Cell membranes are made up primarily of of a double layer of phospholipids (i.e.
phosphorus containing fats.) Lecithin is 97 to 98% phospholipids, the remaining
percentages being water and mineral ash. Lecithin, therefore, supplies major structural
components to every cell membrane in the human body. You can't keep your cells
together or functioning without them.


Dr. Richard Wurtman, at M.I.T. demonstrated how just 35 mg. of phosphatidyl choline
each day could improve intelligence and cognitive function. The 750 mg of lecithin in one
serving of Green Vibrance delivers approximately 165 milligrams of phosphatidyl choline,
4.7 times the dosage Wurtman found to improve cognition. The great depth of research
on lecithin shows how it is not only critical to brain function, but also helps maintain the
myelin sheath protecting and insulating nerves. Lecithin additionally mobilizes cholesterol
for use in hormone synthesis and for removal from the body.


The functions of lecithin are basic, foundational functions critical to human survival. For
that reason, Green Vibrance contains lecithin. It is difficult to build a house of good health
on a flawed foundation where nerves misfire, circulation is inadequate, and cell
membranes are stiff and crippled in their ability to function because lecithin is
undersupplied.


Oxidation, Incineration, Quenching -
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 is
recognized as the degenerative changes of aging. Oxidative damage to cells defines
aging. Oxidative damage is involved, too, in the progression of every known
degenerative disease 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 all will encounter them in time.
Nutritive antioxidants may diminish the severity and slow the speed of aging and
degeneration.  Each serving of Green Vibrance delivers a powerful 340 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 fibers, 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. In fact, Ginkgo biloba extract, grape seed
extract, green tea extract pomegranate extract, and Silymarin (milk thistle) extract are
all known to improve peripheral circulation.


Immunity -
The immune support delivered by Green Vibrance is found in its content of the beta-
glucans, ImmunEnhancer™ arabinogalactans, Astragalus extract, and royal jelly.  But let
us not loose 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.


Bone Health -
Green Vibrance has always supported good skeletal health, undoubtedly due to its
alkalinizing nature, and bioavailable boron and calcium from Hydrilla (and other
ingredients. ) Beginning with version 9.0, Green Vibrance added another key nutrient for
bone health: Vitamin D3. The vitamin D in Green Vibrance is s specially made material
combining D3 with organic sunflower oil and organic alfalfa grass only. There are no
starches or sugar or artificial ingredients used in its composition.


The total Green Vibrance formula was designed and balanced to help establish and
sustain good health.


Therefore, Green Vibrance:

1. Helps improve a sub-par digestive tract or strengthens and maintains one that is
already operating efficiently.

Ingredients that deliver this benefit are:


2. Provides a host of trace nutrients from nutrient-dense, organically grown,
concentrated whole foods.

They are:


3. Improves circulation to assure that the benefits of improved digestion and all
trace nutrients are actually delivered to each cell of the body.

Ingredients that aid circulation are:


4. Supports efficient immunity both as a result of 1.), 2.) & 3.) above (because
healthier cells generate more energy and cells of the immune system are more
vigorous, and as a result of specific ingredients known to support active immune
cells.

They are:


5. Delivers a host of potent anti-aging antioxidants (534 mg.)*

They are:


6. Helps assure skeletal health

They are:
