Today's busy lifestyles make it difficult to achieve a balanced diet. In fact, about 75 percent of Americans aren't eating the minimum recommended daily amounts of fruits and vegetables. Instead, food consumption surveys have highlighted the increased percentage of processed and refined "convenience foods" in the standard diet. Processed foods are often lacking in active enzymes and vital nutrients such as magnesium. Many experts feel that diets consisting primarily of energy dense, nutrient poor foods may lead to nutrient deficiencies.1-7

The health benefits of vegetarian, raw, or living food diets has been the subject of increased scientific inquiry. Research has confirmed that diets high in fruits and vegetables are associated with benefits for immune, gastrointestinal and cardiovascular health.* Pure Harvest Greens provides vegetables and grasses, rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, and dried at low temperatures, in a convenient and great tasting drink mix.*1-7

Pure Harvest Greens provides:

  • Grasses, vegetables, and fiber for overall nutritional support*
  • Natural source of potent antioxidants* lycopene, beta-carotene, lutein and zeaxanthin
  • Natural detoxification support*
  • Alkaline-producing ingredients for acid/base balance*
  • Rich in fiber
  • Convenient, great tasting drink mix
  • Ingredients dried at low temperatures for maximum enzymatic benefit*

How Does it Work?

The ingredients in Pure Harvest Greens contain vitamins, minerals, and key compounds that have been shown in scientific research to support major body systems.* They are also high in antioxidant activity to help reduce the effects of oxidative stress.* Typically excellent sources of fiber, the ingredients in Pure Harvest Greens are also naturally low in fat and sugar and contain no cholesterol.

Greens are Nutrient-Rich
The grasses in Pure Harvest Greens are harvested right before the "jointing" stage, when the nutrients are at their peak. The jointing stage in grasses uses up many of the stored energy and vitamins and turns the plant structure to fiber. That's why it's important to use grasses that are still young. Young grasses provide much higher nutrient levels than maturing grasses. The barley, oat and wheat grasses in Pure Harvest Greens are a concentrated source of vitamins, minerals and amino acids. They are also sources of potent antioxidants and essential nutrients.*8

Antioxidants
The generation of free radicals (unstable oxygen molecules) is a natural consequence of daily life. Enzymatic and chemical reactions in the body such as the metabolism of fat produce free radicals as by-products.9 Exposure to certain environmental triggers may increase the generation of free radicals beyond the body's natural ability to neutralize them. Pesticides and fertilizers, cigarette smoke, ultraviolet radiation, and poor diets can all contribute to increased levels of free radicals.

The glutathione peroxidase and superoxide dismutase enzyme systems are part of the body's built-in system for neutralizing free radicals. However, fruits and vegetables provide additional antioxidants that also quench free radicals.* These antioxidants from dietary sources have been the focus of clinical trials documenting their health supportive effects.* The most well known group of plant antioxidants are the carotenes, the compounds that give plants their color. The carotene family includes beta-carotene, lycopene, lutein and zeaxanthin.

Lycopene (tomatoes) provides support for prostate gland health, and has been shown to support cardiovascular health by preventing the oxidation of LDL cholesterol.*10,11 Lutein and zeaxanthin (spinach and other dark green leafy vegetables) are deposited in high concentrations in the macular region of the retina. It is believed that these antioxidants play an important supportive role in eye health by supporting macular pigment development.* Macular pigment absorbs ultraviolet radiation from the sun, among other functions.*12 In laboratory tests, spinach extract shows greater free radical quenching activity than green tea, N-acetylcysteine (NAC), or vitamin E.*13 Green tea has been shown in research studies to both increase the activity of the glutathione peroxidase and superoxide dismutase enzyme systems, as well as protect lipids and proteins from oxidation.*14 Carrot contains high levels of the antioxidant beta-carotene and has been found in research studies to increase plasma antioxidant levels.*15

Bone Health

Doctor and Patient Reading X-Ray

Fruits and vegetables tend to be high in potassium and magnesium, two minerals that are often depleted by ingesting large amounts of acid-producing foods. In one clinical study, potassium and magnesium showed support for healthy bones in older individuals.*16,17 Some of the potassium- and magnesium-rich ingredients found in Pure Harvest Greens include: tomato, broccoli, carrots and spinach.

The inulin and fructooligosaccarides in Pure Harvest Greens also support calcium absorption, a crucial factor in maintaining healthy bone density.*18,1918,19 And, kale also supports the absorption of magnesium, another crucial mineral for healthy bones.*20

Immune Support

Chlorophyll, responsible for sustaining the life of plants through photosynthesis, is also rich in enzymes and magnesium. It is found in barley, wheat and oat grasses, as well as alfalfa sprouts and kelp. Chlorophyll has been extensively researched for its support of the immune system.*21-24

Higher intakes of fruit and vegetables are associated with greater support of the immune system.* Many of the ingredients in Pure Harvest Greens naturally include high levels of beta-carotene, a form of vitamin A, and minerals such as magnesium and zinc. Certain carotenoids such as beta-carotene and lycopene are thought to regulate the immune response.*25

Carrots are a source of beta-carotene, which has been shown to enhance natural killer cell activity.* And, tomatoes have high concentrations of lycopene, which has shown to support the immune system, prostate health, and macular health.*25,26

Kelp, alfalfa sprouts and wheat, barley and oat grass provide magnesium. Magnesium is associated with energy production at a cellular level, and has been studied for its role supporting the immune system.*27-29 Another water-borne plant, blue-green algae naturally has vitamin A, essential amino acids and zinc. Zinc has been studied for its association with natural killer cell activity.*30-32

Both broccoli and broccoli sprouts are a source of sulforaphanes. Sulforaphanes are associated with immune health support.*33

The polyphenols in green tea, specifically EGCG, have been the subject of many scientific studies showing their antioxidant and immune support activity.* EGCG has been shown to support colon, breast and prostate health.*34,35 Green tea has been shown to support the immune system and T-cell formation.*36

Digestive Health

Inulin fiber acts as a prebiotic in the digestive tract, promoting bile excretion and helping foster a healthy climate for probiotic beneficial bacteria.* They also aid in the absorption of minerals such as calcium, magnesium and zinc.*18,37 Soluble and insoluble fiber from inulin also supports healthy digestion and colon function, by safely absorbing and eliminating toxins.*

Fiber promotes bowel movements and modulates gastric and intestinal physiology.* Although human digestive juices can't digest fiber, intestinal flora that normally reside within the colon utilize fiber as a medium for microbial fermentation, resulting in the synthesis of vitamin K and biotin, and the formation of short-chain fatty acids (SCFA). The SCFA that are produced can be absorbed and used for energy by the mucosa of the colon to maintain the health of colon epithelial cells. The effects of SCFA increase fecal matter bulk by supporting a healthier intestinal environment. Fiber has been demonstrated in numerous clinical studies to provide support of gastrointestinal, cardiovascular, immune, and endocrine function health.*38-42

Dietary guidelines recommend a range of 21 to 38 grams of fiber per day. However, given the prevalence of refined foods in the typical modern diet, most Americans eat an average of 10 to 15 grams daily. The inulin and FOS blend, guar gum and grasses in Pure Harvest Greens provide about 2 grams of fiber per serving, making it a convenient way to add fiber to the diet.38-42

Current research also indicates that wheat grass, one of the three grasses in Pure Harvest Greens, may support gastric and colonic health.*43

Cardiovascular Health

Women Doing Cardio Workout

Many of the ingredients in Pure Harvest Greens are associated with the retention of healthy cholesterol levels that are within normal ranges.* Inulin and oligofructose, guar gum, barley, carrot, broccoli, cabbage, and green tea have been clinically studied for this benefit.*44-55

In a scientific study, adding guar gum to a healthy diet supported the retention of healthy cholesterol levels already within normal limits.*46

The broccoli and cabbage found in Pure Harvest Greens may also support the retention of healthy cholesterol levels already within normal limits.* A randomized, double-blind clinical study found that a broccoli and cabbage combination supported healthy HDL and LDL levels already within normal limits in just 9 weeks.*47

Broccoli sprouts have also been scientifically studied for their support of cardiovascular health.*48 Fourteen weeks of supplementation with broccoli sprouts that contained the naturally occurring compound, glucoraphanin, showed significant antioxidant support for cardiovascular and kidney function.*49,50

Carrots are, of course, a natural source of beta-carotene, which the body converts into a form of vitamin A. In a scientific study, beta-carotene supported the retention of healthy cholesterol and triglyceride levels already within normal limits in the liver.*15 Grasses, too, such as barley support the retention of healthy cholesterol levels that are already within normal limits.*51,52

And, already associated with antioxidant activity and macular health, green tea consumption also supports cardiovascular health, and research also shows that green tea may regulate mitochondrial functions and have iron chelating properties.*53,54

Healthy Blood Sugar Metabolism

In addition to its ability to support the retention of healthy cholesterol levels already within normal limits, guar gum also plays a part in regulating blood glucose levels already within normal limits.* In a clinical trial, guar gum significantly supported blood glucose levels compared with controls.*55 Fiber from inulin and barley also support healthy blood sugar levels already within normal limits.

Eye Health

Many of the nutrients in Pure Harvest Greens support healthy eye function.* Lutein and zeaxanthin are found in high concentrations in green vegetables, such as spinach, mustard greens and kale.58,59 Studies have shown that intakes of lutein and zeaxanthin-rich foods are associated with macular support.*59,60

In one clinical study, men consuming high levels of lutein and zeaxanthin intake showed greater support of healthy eye function than men with lower intakes.* Specific foods high in carotenoids like broccoli and spinach were most consistently associated with beneficial effects.*59,60

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I take a greens product like Pure Harvest Greens ?
Greens supplements, which are plant based supplements from sources like alfalfa, barley, grains, nuts, spirulina, wheat grass, herbs, vegetables, legumes and seaweed can offer numerous health benefits.*  Research has confirmed that diets high in fruits and vegetables are associated with benefits for immune, gastrointestinal and cardiovascular health.*  Pure Harvest Greens provides vegetables and grasses, rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, and dried at low temperatures, in a convenient and great tasting drink mix.*

What are the digestive benefits of taking Pure Harvest Greens ?
Pure Harvest Greens drink mix provides numerous health benefits.*  This greens supplement contains alkaline-producing ingredients, such as inulin fiber and wheat grass, for acid-alkaline balance which are important for healthy digestive function.*

Are Pure Harvest Greens and Pure Harvest Greens gluten-free?
Pure Harvest Greens is formulated to be gluten free. When grasses are carefully harvested immediately upon sprouting, they do not contain gluten. Gluten development begins as the seed of the plant develops. However, we do not simply rely upon the method of harvest to ensure the ingredients contain no gluten. We test regularly to ensure each serving is below the 20 parts per million (ppm) limit established by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

However, we still cannot label Pure Harvest Greens as gluten free because of the FDA proposed regulations. FDA has determined that any product containing ingredients, such as barley, wheat, or rye, cannot be labeled gluten free. The proposed rule cites concerns about cross contamination with gluten-containing grasses and consumer safety as primary reasons for the new regulation.
