for a Healthy Digestive System
By Garden of Life Health Writers
people rightly associate vegetables with the awesome nutrient
potential they provide. Chock full of vitamins and minerals,
vegetables are a primary source of great health. What many people fail
to realize is that digestive health also benefits from the consumption
of vegetables, especially greens.
For example, vegetable juices are a key component in
many cleansing regimens, and for good reason. Green foods contain
chlorophyll, a fifty-cent word that you may remember from your high
school biology class. Chlorophyll, a pigment that gives plants their
vibrant green color, is also great for detoxification of the body
because it acts as a “deodorant” of the alimentary canal. Healthy
detoxification is a key component to overall digestive health.
Raw vegetable juices are also loaded with enzymes
and probiotics. Digestive enzymes are required to break down the food
you eat so that you can assimilate the nutrients in food. Probiotics
aid digestion by lining the digestive system, which creates a fortress
of health and allows the nutrients taken from food to pass through the
intestinal walls and into the bloodstream.
While many people have heard of probiotics, most
haven’t heard of prebiotics. Prebiotics are ingredients that stimulate
the growth and activity of probiotics, which, in effect, is like
feeding the probiotics. Young cereal grasses such as barley grass,
wheat grass and oat grass act as prebiotics, and they should be
included in every vegetable juice-cleansing regimen.
Additionally, vegetables are loaded with
antioxidants. Due to a variety of environmental factors, your body
takes on more and more toxic burden every day. Toxins can place a
tremendous workload on the body, as your system tries to rid itself of
the accumulated toxins. This also causes oxidative stress at the
cellular level, requiring a ready supply of antioxidants.
Perfect Food—the Greenest Green Food
Food powder by
Garden of Life contains 5,000 mg per serving of a combination
of wheat grass, barley grass, oat grass and alfalfa grass in a
concentrated raw juice form that is low-temperature dried into a
powder to preserve the enzymes and antioxidants. When you combine the
cereal grass juices with other ingredients in Perfect Food, there are
over 8,000 mg of green superfoods per serving, making Perfect Food the
greenest green food available.
While Perfect Food begins with green superfoods in
the form of cereal grass juices, it certainly doesn’t end there. In
order to make the most complete green food formula available, other
whole food ingredients were added to the equation. Let’s take a closer
- Sprouted grains, seeds and legumes:
Perfect Food contains live, nutrient-dense sprouts. Sprouting is a
technique whereby grains, seeds and legumes are soaked in water,
which activates certain enzymes that allow them to germinate, or
sprout. This process increases the vitamin and nutrient value of the
- Veggie juice blend: The Perfect Food
Veggie Juice Blend contains 17 different raw organic vegetables
designed to give you the best nutrition that the vegetable world has
- Sea vegetables: Sea vegetables have a long
history of consumption by some of the healthiest and longest-lived
cultures on the planet. Spirulina, chlorella and varieties of brown
and green seaweed such as kelp, dulse, wakame and kombu are loaded
with minerals and are all contained in Perfect Food.
Perfect Food contains a myriad of ingredients, each
chosen for their specific ability to deliver the most nutrients in a
form that your body can readily assimilate. That alone makes Perfect
Food unique, but there is one other factor that sets Perfect Food
While Perfect Food seems to have it all in the way
of vegetable nutrition, what Perfect Food doesn’t contain may be even
more important. Unlike virtually all green superfoods available in
health food stores today, Perfect Food contains no filler ingredients.
Non-nutritious ingredients such as lecithin, apple fiber, rice bran,
oats and chicory take up valuable space in many green superfood
products, saving production costs for the manufacturer but not
supplying you with the digestion-supporting, energy boosting green
superfoods that your body desperately needs.
Consider the Fermentation Factor
Select ingredients in Perfect Food are produced
through a proprietary fermentation process known as Poten-Zyme.
Fermentation is an “ancient technology” that makes food more
digestible by helping to unlock the nutrients found within food.
Fermented foods contain loads of probiotics and enzymes which promote
digestive health and support normal elimination. The bottom line? With
chlorophyll, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, probiotics, prebiotics,
enzymes and fermented ingredients, Perfect Food is a perfect choice
for perfect digestion and detoxification.
