Green Superfoods FAQ's
What are Green Superfoods and why should I include them in my diet?
Green Superfoods are a category of phytonutrient-rich nutritional products derived from green plants, algae and cereal grasses. These green foods naturally contain high concentrations of chlorophyll and are harvested seasonally to take advantage of high potencies of naturally occurring nutrients. Everyone should consume green superfoods daily. They are an excellent natural source of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, plant sterols and numerous other nutritional constituents. Plus they’re safe and effective.
What is Blue-Green Algae and how is it processed?
Blue-Green Algae is a nutrient-rich green food that grows naturally in mineral-rich Klamath Lake in the upper Oregon Cascades. As with most green foods, it is an excellent source of vitamins, minerals, trace elements, enzymes, amino acids, and protein (60% average). It is processed using low heat dehydration and is carefully screened to ensure the absence of unwanted microbes or toxins before it is freeze-dried.
What is the equivalency of NOW® Broccoli Concentrate to fresh broccoli, and how much sulfophane is there per serving?
A stalk of broccoli can provide up to 220% of the daily value of vitamin C and 15% of the daily value of vitamin A as beta carotene. In addition, broccoli contains other phytonutrients that provide additional antioxidant activity. Two of our Broccoli Concentrate tablets provide the same amount of phytonutrients as a half cup of fresh broccoli and contain 1700mcg of sulfophane, 5100mcg total glucosinolates, and 11,900mcg of sulfur.
