“Grass is neither a fruit nor vegetable and has never been a staple in the human diet. Many greens products use barley, wheat and other grasses as inexpensive fillers.” ~NewMark.com
Strong statement! NewMark challenges the notion that regular consumption of grasses is even beneficial! If you have been drinking Progreens, Kyo, or any other green drink, I urge you try this new product.
Fact: For good health, we need to consume green foods and fruits. When I don’t eat a green salad, I will take a green drink to make up for lost nutrients. Many green drinks contain wheat, barley or other grasses. However, NewMark, a company that is emerging as an innovator in the professional herbal market, has launched a new product called Fruits ‘n Greens that does not contain grass fillers.
All you need is one tablespoon of Fruits ‘n Greens and you will get a powerful therapeutic and preventative drink packed with anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory agents. Ingredients include dark greens, blueberry, concord grape, pomegranate, ginger, turmeric, and more.
A key ingredient is Blueberry, the current “It” berry, with documented studies proving it to have significant anti-cancer, anti-aging, and anti-oxidant properties. This is due to the content of anthocyanins. Anthocyanins are compounds that provide pigment to fruits and are natural antioxidants. Anthocyanins repair and protect DNA, which is why blueberries are a great anti-aging food. Anti-oxidants reduce the number of free radicals in the body, preventing oxidative damage and stress. They also improve neuronal and cognitive brain function. Berries are also anti-angiogenic – this means they reduce the unwanted proliferation of unwanted blood vessels, reducing the risk of tumors and preventing varicose veins. Cranberries and Concord Grapes are also rich in these properties.
Spinach is the number one ingredient, another excellent source of antioxidants that is also high in lutein. It has four times the beta-carotene of broccoli, making it another anti-cancer food. Eating spinach lowers cholesterol, and because of its high fiber content it prevents atherosclerosis. Studies prove that lutein is good for healthy eyesight, prevents macular degeneration and lowers the risk of cataracts.
The other hot fruit is Pomegranate, a source of anti-oxidants that protects against heart disease. Studies suggest it lowers blood pressure and may help lower chances of stroke as well as prevent erectile dysfunction. Interestingly, in the Tarot, the pomegranate is depicted cut open with its vibrant red seeds, featured as a symbol of fertility and sexuality. The pomegranate has been used medicinally for thousands of years, even for menopause symptoms. It contain tannins, phenolic acids, polyphenols, punicic acid, and flavonoids agents that can lower menopausal stress.
Ginger and Turmeric are famous for their anti-inflammatory properties. Did you know that Turmeric was a potent liver cleanser? I have recommended it for Lyme Disease as well as arthritis.
Best of all, Fruits ‘n Greens tastes good and is all organic.
