Concentrated phytochemical wholefood

NanoGreens10

Concentrated wholefood phytonutrients


NanoGreens10 --- 10 Servings of Vegetables & Fruit in one hit!

  • NanoGreens to the power of 10 is the phytonutrient and antioxidant equivalent of consuming 10 servings of fruit and vegetables.
  • You will be able to consume all the colours found in vegetables and  fruit and indeed eat the rainbow.
  • 7 to 9 servings are deemed to be optimal but in fact you may need 13 or more servings of fruit and vegetables to provide you with optimal health as the number of servings will depend upon your lifestyle, health, exposure to environmental toxins, exercise routine, stress and any chronic illness you may have.

Only 50 calories per serve! --- it uses a safe sweetener [stevia]

  • NanoGreens10 has been designed to taste great in water --- adding this to fruit juice will only add calories.
  • Only 50 calories per serve means that this can be used effectively in any weight management program to provide you with a huge number of antioxidants and phytochemicals.
  • It is sweetened with Stevia [Stevia rebaudiana], a safe and natural sweet leaf used for centuries in India, South America and Central America as a sweetener. The Food and Drug Administration [FDA] in the US has declared stevia as generally recognized as safe (GRAS).
  • Stevia is about 30 - 40 times sweeter than table sugar [sucrose] and may help reduce cravings for sweet and fatty foods.

Is NanoGreens10 a substitute for a multivitamin preparation?

  • No! --- NanoGreens10 has been designed to provide you with a superconcentrated phytochemical food packed with a range of plant compounds.
  • It is not designed to provide you with a range of vitamins or minerals
  • "Although NanoGreens10® is micronutrient dense, it does not, nor is it designed to supply the RDV of every vitamin and mineral. Also, as NanoGreens10® is a live food product, nutrient density will vary somewhat from batch to batch."

Phytonutrients found in NanoGreens10

  • Barley Grass Juice Powder*,
  • Spirulina*,
  • Chlorella (Japanese soft shell)

Barley Grass Juice Powder

  • Considered the most nutritious of the green grasses.
  • Has 13 times as much carotene as that of
    carrots.
  • 55 times as much Vitamin C as that of apples
  • 5 times as much iron as that of spinach.

Spirulina

  • Spirulina a single-celled blue-green algae contains over 100 vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes and phytonutrients!
  • Spirulina contains high levels of easily absorbed natural antioxidants that protect your cells which chlorophyll, alpha and beta carotene and phycocyanin, with the latter found exclusively in Spirulina.
  • Spirulina is the highest natural plant source of vitamin B12
  • Has 50x more iron than spinach
  • Has 10x more calcium than milk

Chlorella

  • A single-celled freshwater green algae.
  • Contains 2x more chlorophyll than spirulina.
  • Chlorophyll is simply haemoglobin [the oxygen carrier found in red blood cells] but unlike haemoglobin chlorophyll has magnesium rather than iron in the middle.
  • In animal studies, chlorophyll has been found to bind to numerous cancer forming compounds such as heterocyclic amines (found in cooked meats), polycyclic hydrocarbons (found in smoked and barbecued foods), and aflatoxin (a powerful toxic compound produced by mould that infects grains and peanuts) that can severely damage your liver.

Dunaliella Salina

  • Is a unique spirulina species that is harvested from the Dead Sea.
  • Rich in mixed carotenoids ---beta-carotene, some alpha-carotene, cryptoxanthin, zeaxanthin, lutein and lycopene.
  • Studies suggest that mixed carotenoids may be of greater benefit and safety in terms of protecting against cancers.
  • Blueberry,
  • Green Tea Extract,
  • Grape Seed Extract,
  • Cranberry,
  • Raspberry,
  • Tart Cherry,
  • Pine Bark Extract,
  • Broccoli,
  • Tomato,
  • Carrot,
  • Spinach,
  • Kale,
  • Brussels Sprout,
  • Bilberry,
  • Elderberry,
  • Pomegranate,
  • Blackberry

Spinach, Kale and Parsley

  • Rich in folic acid (vitamin B9), vitamin K, calcium, iron, and potassium.
  • Importantly they are rich in the  antioxidant phytonutrients lutein and zeaxanthin that protect the eye from developing macular degeneration and cataracts.
  • These non-vitamin A carotenes i.e. lutein and zeaxanthin are the only carotenes active in the retina of the eye.
  • Vitamin K is important in bone health and to help prevent calcification that can occur in the blood vessels.
  • One of the concerns about using blood thinners such as warfarin is that the individual on them has a misguided belief that they need to restrict their dark green leafy intake due to the high levels of vitamin K that can affect the action of warfarin. This need not be the case and is explained in more detail under GP Guidelines below.

Carrots, Sweet Potato and Tomato

  • Sweet potato is a rich source of pre-vitamin A beta-carotene
  • Sweet potato is also a good source of other carotenoids, vitamin C, manganese, copper, dietary fiber, vitamin B6, potassium and iron.
  • Tomatoes are a rich source of lycopene particularly after cooking and concentrating. Lycopene has been shown to be associated with lower risk of many cancers including lung, prostate, ovary and breast.
  • Carrots have a high level of pre-vitamin A beta-carotene --- one study stated the following: “There was an evident increase in the risk of breast cancer for decreasing amounts of betacarotene... the risk of breast cancer approximately doubled among the subjects with blood levels of beta-carotene at the lowest quartile” (American Journal of
    Epidemiology 2001, Vol 12, No 153, pp. 1142-7).

Cruciferous Vegetables: Broccoli, Kale, Brussels Sprouts, Cabbage

  • Contain sulforaphane and indole –3 carbinol [IC-3]
  • These vegetables are particularly important in hormone related cancers such as breast and prostate cancer.
  • To find out more please click on the following link: QuickGuides: Cruciferous Vegtables
  • Fermented [pre-digested] Japanese Cabbage increases the vitamin and mineral content of the cabbage in particular the B-group vitamins and preserves the enzymes.
  • Of particular interest in fermented Japanese cabbage is the increase of the major antioxidant enzyme Super Oxide Dismutase (S.O.D.)
  • In vitro testing of fermented cabbage has been shown to prevent cancer cell growth.

Berry Berry Rich! - Potent sources of antioxidants

  • Berries such as Blueberry, Raspberry, Blackberry, Bilberry, Cranberries and Tart Dark Cherries are some of the most potent sources of age fighting antioxidants.
  • cranberries, raspberries and tart cherries are the richest fruit
    source of ellagic acid.
  • Ellagic acid is a naturally occurring plant phenolic flavonoid
    phytonutrient
    and is a potent anti-carcinogenic shown in many studies and is an important compound to include in the diet to decrease the risk of many cancers.
  • Blueberries are full of blue anthocyanins shown in many studies to be protective of your brain against decline in cognitive function.

Green Tea Extract

  • Are a rich source of flavonoid catechins polyphenols
  • These have been shown to be of benefit in helping to prevent cancer and cardiovascular disease.
  • White tea has twice the polyphenol content than green tea!

Resveratrol

  • Gives grapes their dark red-blue colour
  • “Resveratrol (a stilbene polyphenol found in grape skin extracts and the herb polygonum cuspidatum) is able to inhibit the initiation and promotion of tumors, and cause pre-cancerous cells to return to normal.”
    (Science, 1997, Vol 275, No5297, pp. 218-220).
  • Resveratrol is the compound thought to provide the immune enhancing propterty and the protection for the heart and cardiovascular system produced by consuming red wine [the French paradox] --- without the alcohol. 
  • Cinnamon Extract 8%, Cinnamon Bark Powder*
  • Artichoke
  • Oat Beta Glucan

Cinnamon and insulin resistance

  • Has been shown to improve insulin receptor sensitivity
  • Can be beneficial in insulin resistant states such as the Metabolic Syndrome [Syndrome-X] and Type-2 Diabetes [T2DM]
  • Researchers at the USDA have identified phytochemicals in cinnamon called chalcone polymers the most active of which is —methylhydroxy chalcone polymer (MHCP)— that can increase cellular glucose metabolism by 20 times or more!
  • For more information please click on the following link: QuickGuides: Cinnamon
  • Artichoke has compounds that can help lower cholesterol levels which can often accompany insulin resistant states.
  • Oat Beta Glucan has been extensively studied for its cholesterol lowering effect when included in the diet.
  • Enzymes
Natural plant enzymes:
  • amylase --- digests starches
  • lipase --- digests fats
  • cellulase/hemicellulase --- digests cellulose
  • lactase --- digests lactose [milk sugar]
  • galactosidase --- digests sugars to monosaccharides
  • protease --- digests protein
  • bromelain and papain (from pineapple and papaya) ---helps digest proteins.
  • Quinoa

Quinoa

  • A South American seed and not a true grain
  • Is a protein powerhouse with a complete protein equivalent to the quality of protein found in milk.
  • Is a rich source of the amino acid lysine often lacking in true grains such as wheat and barley.
  • Is extremely rich in many nutrients including: the B vitamins, magnesium, iron, zinc, copper, manganese, essential fatty acids, saponins, beta glucans and many enzymes.
  • For more detailed information please click on the following link: QuickGuides: Quinoa
  • Lemon Peel Powder
  • Rich in pectin, bioflavonoids and limonoids
  • Citrus fruits are rich in limonoids---limonin, nomilin and nomilinic acid.
  • Limonoids are being investigated for numerous therapeutic effects such as antiviral, antifungal, antibacterial, antineoplastic and antimalarial activity.
  • Pectin is a soluble fibre found in rich supply in citrus peel.
  • Pectin can help lower blood cholesterol levels
  • Pectin acts as a prebiotic for bowel organisms.

To discuss with your doctor

Use with blood thinners such as warfarin:

  • There is less than 5 mcg of vitamin K per serving and as such is not contraindicated with warfarin use. There is a misguided belief that if you are taking warfarin that you must cut back on health providing vegetables and fruit. This is far from the case and not recommended as study after study has shown the benefit of vegetables and fruit in large quantities on optimal health in terms of preventing cancer and cardiovascular disease and macular degeneration.


Tell your patient to eat a lot of vegetables and fruit and to keep on doing this while on warfarin.

  • What is important with regard to INR's being tested is that once your INR has been stabilized on a particular intake of vegetables + fruit + phytochemical concentrate, then you should NOT vary this intake otherwise the INR will also vary.

What if I am gluten sensitive?

From the NanoGreens advisory:

  • "NanoGreens10® is only 30 ppm gluten. Therefore the gluten load on a 12 gm serving might in many cases be generally recognized as safe for gluten sensitive persons. The technical term is "gluten restricted". Barley grass does not contain gluten like the mature barley seed grain. Rice and rice bran are gluten free. Oat beta glucan is a minimal gluten source. Certainly anyone with food sensitivity concerns should start with ¼ scoop and, as things prove to go well, slowly increase to a full scoop over a week or two just to be safe. But you should know that we have several anecdotal reports as to how much our phytonutrient greens drinks have helped those with IBS and colitis. Those with diagnosed celiac disease should always consult their health professional first!

Potassium

  • Potassium can be highly beneficial for those with high blood pressure and to balance the high sodium intake in Western societies. However, if you are taking blood pressure medications, please discuss the use of vegetable concentrates if you are on a potassium sparing medication. You doctor may want to check your blood potassium level from time-to-time.

Why do I need to eat fruit and vegetables if I have NanoGreens10?

  • NanoGreens10 should be seen as an addition to fruit and vegetable intake.
  • Aim for at a minimum 3 servings of whole vegetables and 2 servings of whole fruit.
  • Having seasonal fruits and vegetables offers you variety in your diet and increased fibre intake.
  • From the NSW Dept of Health statistics, about 90% of Australians don't get their recommended intake of vegetables and only about 50% consume the recommended intake of fruit.
  • So what does this mean? No matter how much money is spent on educating the public through advertising programs, eating 3 servings of vegetables and 2 servings of fruit is obviously a daunting task for many Australians [and Americans] for various reasons.
  • NanoGreens10 offers a practical approach to getting the multitude of phytochemicals thought to offer preventative health advantages --- it also tastes good!
  • Remember children and teenagers can sometimes be very fussy eaters and NanoGreens10 can be a practical way to ensure they are getting their phytochemical needs --- i.e. eating their 'rainbow'.
