Please note that we are currently out of stock, but are making a new batch which should be ready in June. Thank you for your patience, and sorry for any inconvenience that this poses. - Ben Kim
I'm often asked to name just one simple action step that people can take to
improve their health. My answer is usually this: Eat more green vegetables.
I'm not taking about adding a few florets of broccoli to your dinner. For measurable
improvement in your health, you need to eat at least the equivalent of about
5 big handfuls of dark greens every day. Start doing this on a daily basis,
and I'm confident that you'll feel stronger and healthier within a month.
Here are some of the reasons why eating lots of dark greens every day is such
an effective way to promote your best health:
The micronutrients in dark green vegetables are essential to building and maintaining healthy skin, hair, and nails.
Dark greens are loaded with minerals that you need to build and maintain strong and healthy bones and teeth. Through my experiences, I've come to believe that no other food group is more effective at remedying sensitive teeth and gums.
Per calorie consumed, dark greens provide more nutrient-density than just about any other food group that we know of - this means that you experience maximum nourishment and cleansing per mouthful, with virtually no chance of gaining unhealthy weight from regular green food consumption.
Dark greens are rich in fiber, which you need to keep your colon clean and healthy, and lower your risk of developing colo-rectal cancer.
Dark greens are rich in carotenoids and other phytonutrients that can significantly reduce your risk of developing all types of chronic disease. The phytonutrients in dark greens are especially effective at promoting optimal eye health.
I used to believe that eating only fresh varieties of dark greens was the best
approach to nourishing and cleansing my body. But after a few years of doing
this, and working with a number of clients who also followed a whole food-only
approach, I began to suspect that degrading soil quality was leading to nutrient-depleted
fresh greens at most grocery stores.
That's when I began experimenting with super green food powders, which are
made by carefully drying organically grown green vegetables and then micropulverizing
them for optimal absorption.
Our super green food powder was born out of those early days of experimenting,
and to date, many thousands of people from all over the world are using and
benefiting from this nutrient-rich green food product.
Though I consider our super green food product to be one of the best of its
kind, I noticed over the years that a small percentage of the population seems
to have trouble tolerating one or more of the ingredients.
For some people, chlorella appears to be a problem. For others, one or both
of the wildcrafted sea vegetables (dulse and kelp) are difficult to tolerate
because of taste or iodine content. And for others still, I have come to believe
that the comprehensive probiotic formula just isn't optimal for their unique
But because so many people are benefiting from our original green food formula,
I didn't want to change it to address the challenges mentioned above.
The solution that I came up with was to provide a nutrient-dense super green
food formula that contains just 5 select, organically grown greens that are
extremely well tolerated by the masses. This new product is called 5 Super Greens,
and it's just as nutrient-dense as our original formula, but it's free of sea
vegetables, chlorella, spirulina, and friendly bacteria.
Here are the 5 organically grown ingredients in 5 Super Greens:
Whole leaf barley grass
Whole leaf wheat grass
Alfalfa leaf juice
Dandelion leaf juice
Barley grass juice
Oat grass juice
There are actually six separate ingredients, but organically grown barley is
in two forms - whole leaf and juice, thus the name of 5 Super Greens.
All of the juices are 33:1, which means that 33 pounds of fresh, organically
grown vegetables are used to produce each pound of nutrient-dense juice powder.
All of our organic juices are carefully dried at low temperatures (below 100
F) to preserve heat-sensitive elements.
That's it, that's all that you'll find in 5 Super Greens. No fillers like apple
pectin, oat bran, rice bran, soy lecithin, or various grains and seeds - these
filler ingredients are healthy on their own, but it just doesn't make any sense
to me to include them in an organically grown super green food product.
And here's an important point about the ingredients in 5 Super Greens: our
nutrient-dense vegetables are grown in mineral-rich organic soil for months,
rather than in trays for a few days - these ideal growing conditions maximize
the levels of food-based vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, and chlorophyll
in the final product.
Some other key details on 5 Super Greens:
Micropulverized to maximize absorption
100% organically grown, nutrient-dense greens
Suggested Usage: Take one teaspoon per 50 pounds of body weight
per day, all at once, or spread out. Mix well with water, fresh juice, or smoothies.
Because 5 Super Greens is 100% organically grown food, it is completely non-toxic
and can be taken in larger quantities if intense nourishment and cleansing are
How's the taste?
It's actually quite pleasant, with a slightly malty flavor. I really like this
green food powder mixed with water, carrot juice, a smoothie, or a glass that's
half water and half fresh orange juice. 5 Super Greens tastes quite different
from our original super green food product, mainly because 5 Super Greens doesn't
contain any sea vegetables, chlorella, or spirulina.
Who is 5 Super Greens intended for?
Anyone who wants to ensure optimal intake of organically grown greens. This
is not a supplement - it's a nutrient-dense whole food product that you can
be certain is extremely rich in food-based vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals
that you need to experience your best health at any age. If you tried our original
super green food formula and had trouble taking it because of the taste or because
of intolerance to one or more ingredients, then 5 Super Greens is likely an
excellent alternative for you.
How is 5 Super Greens different from the original super green food
5 Super Greens doesn't include sea vegetables, chlorella, spirulina, friendly
bacteria, a separate enzyme formula (though it contains naturally occurring
enzymes), and a few other land vegetables. The nutrient-dense vegetables in
5 Super Greens provides many of the same nourishing and cleansing benefits that
our original formula offers, and the taste is more widely tolerated, especially
Another difference: Though 5 Super Greens comes in an amber
glass bottle with a metal lid and oxygen absorber to maximally protect against
nutrient degradation, it comes in a 10 ounce size only (our original super green
food product comes in a 16 ounce size only). Due to a difference in density
when compared with our original formula, this is the best packaging option available
for our clients and readers.
A note on pricing and how to save on shipping: Please know
that the policy that we have established for our natural health shop is to provide
only those products that we actually use in our household, and to offer these
products for the most deeply discounted prices possible.
To save money on shipping, it's best to order more than one item at a time.
UPS (for orders in the United States) and USPS (for orders to locations outside
of the United States) charge one main fee to ship any package, and then add
only modest increments for each additional pound. So the per-item shipping cost
goes down dramatically with each additional item that you order.
For example, if it costs $12 to ship one item, it often costs just a dollar
or two more to ship two items, and only two or three dollars more to ship three
items, and so on and so forth. This example is for orders within the United
States. Packages being shipped to locations outside of the United States start
at a higher base rate, as determined by the United States Postal Service (USPS).
We only charge for shipping and handling what we ourselves are charged by UPS
or USPS and our warehouse.
Regarding Sales and Free Shipping: Generally, we don't offer
sales or free shipping, except for those times when we are able to secure an
extra bulk discount on our raw materials.
Our policy is to provide the lowest possible prices on our products every day.
Businesses that are able to offer periodic sales and free shipping are likely
only able to do this because their everyday prices reflect heavy profit margins.
Regarding Money-Back Guarantees: We don't play numbers games,
where we offer a money-back guarantee knowing that this will dramatically increase
overall revenue, even in the face of a high return rate. Whenever you see a
full money-back guarantee on physical products, it's likely that heavy profit
margins are involved to make up for returns. We prefer to keep our profit margins
as modest as possible for every person who is earnestly looking for top quality
products that can really make a difference in his or her health.
One additional note: Due to a minor labeling mishap, the label
for 5 Super Greens reads 284 grams; please note that this should read 227 grams,
which is 8 ounces, or half a pound.
