Organic Alfalfa Grass Whole Leaf, Organic Alfalfa Juice, Organic Alfalfa Sprout
Alfalfa, also known as lucerne or Medicago sativa, is a part of the legume family, but it's also considered to be an herb. For hundreds of years, it has been grown as feed for livestock and it also has a long history of use as a medicinal herb for humans through its leaves, sprouts, and seeds.
Alfalfa is used for kidney conditions, bladder and prostate conditions, and to increase urine flow. It is also used for high cholesterol, asthma, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, upset stomach, and a bleeding disorder called thrombocytopenic purpura. People also take alfalfa as a source of vitamins A, C, E, and K4; and minerals calcium, potassium, phosphorous, and iron. (source: Web MD)
Organic Barley Grass Juice, Organic Barley Grass Whole Leaf
Perhaps one of the most widely consumed grains in the American diet, barley is a popular cereal grain that can be used in bread, beverages, stews, and other dishes. As a whole grain, barley provides fiber, vitamins, and minerals, making it usable as medicine as well. Topically, barley is applied directly to the skin for treating boils.
When orally consumed, the plant may help to lower blood sugar, blood pressure, and cholesterol, and can also contribute to weight loss. It’s also used for digestive problems such as diarrhea, stomach pain, and inflammatory bowel conditions. (source: Web MD)
Consuming a diet rich in whole grains may help reduce the risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, certain types of cancer, and other chronic health concerns. Barley is also used for cancer prevention. (source: Medical News Today)
Organic Broccoli Sprouts
A green vegetable that vaguely resembles a miniature tree and belonging to the plant species known as Brassica oleracea, broccoli has a reputation of being a superfood. It is low in calories but contains a wealth of nutrients and antioxidants.
The parts that grow above the ground are used to make medicine. Broccoli is used for high cholesterol, fibromyalgia, preventing several types of cancer, and other conditions, although there is no strong scientific evidence to support these uses. Chemicals in broccoli might have cancer-preventing and antioxidant effects. Additionally, when broccoli is eaten with starch, it slows down how quickly sugar from the starch goes into the blood. This is beneficial for people with diabetes. (source: Web MD)
Chlorella is a single-celled, green freshwater algae. Because it has a hard cell wall that humans cannot digest, it is taken as a supplement or green powder to reap its benefits.
Further scientific studies are yet to be done to prove its benefits but so far, chlorella is showing great potential. It has been found to be a good source of protein, fats, carbohydrates, fiber, chlorophyll, vitamins, and minerals. It may act as an antioxidant and help decrease cholesterol. It is used to prevent low levels of iron in women who are pregnant. Chlorella is also used for depression, menstrual cramps, fibromyalgia, high cholesterol, and other conditions. (source: Web MD)
Organic Collard Powder
Collard is a dark, leafy, vegetable that is commonly eaten as a food source. Collard leaves can also be eaten as a medicine. It is taken as an antioxidant; for anemia, heart disease, constipation, diabetes, glaucoma, high cholesterol, macular degeneration, and weight loss; and to prevent bladder cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer, and scurvy. Collard contains chemicals that are thought to help prevent cancer. Chemicals in collard might also have antioxidant activity. (source: Web MD)
Organic Kale Powder
A certified superfood, kale is a popular vegetable and a member of the cabbage family. It is a cruciferous vegetable like cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, collard greens, and brussels sprouts.
Like most of its fellow cruciferous vegetables, kale has been studied more extensively in relationship to cancer than any other health condition. This research focus makes perfect sense. Kale's nutrient richness stands out in three particular areas: (1) antioxidant nutrients, (2) anti-inflammatory nutrients, and (3) anti-cancer nutrients in the form of glucosinolates.

Spirulina is an organism that grows in both fresh and saltwater. It is a type of cyanobacteria, which is a family of single-celled microbes that are often referred to as blue-green algae. More notably, it is loaded with various nutrients and antioxidants that may benefit your body and brain.
Blue-green algae have a high protein, iron, and other mineral content which is absorbed when taken orally. Blue-green algae are being researched for their potential effects on the immune system, swelling (inflammation), and viral infections. (source: Web MD)
