TERRANOVA Green Purity Super-Blend contains a number of plant based leafs including dandelion leaf and nettle leaf. The Super-Blend is deeply nourishing to avoid nutrient loss which is sometimes associated with detox.
One of nature`s most nourishing plants, dandelion provides an array of vitamins and minerals, as well as carotenoids and many other health-giving phytonutrients. It is also known for its suportive role in detoxification and maintaining a healthy liver, primarily due to a supportive influence on bile flow, (which may discourage accumulation of certain toxins).
In addition to its remarkable concentration of health- promoting vitamins, minerals, carotenoids and flavonoids, watercress is a potent source of sulphur compounds associated with healthy detoxification processes, such as glucosinolates.
Kale`s major sulphur-rich antioxidants, such as sulforaphane and indole-3-carbinol. These sulphur compounds may encourage the healthy elimination of various toxins that are known to be harmful to the liver.
In addition to its historical use as a tonic for kidneys and the urinary tract in general, parsley also provides an abundance of chlorophyll, which may contribute to a healthy digestive environment.
Beet Juice & Greens
Beetroot provides various B-vitamins and significant levels of vitamin C, the minerals potassium, iron, zinc, magnesium and copper and the important methyl donor betaine (which plays a role in maintaining healthy liver function). Among other nutrients, beet greens additionally provide high levels of carotenoids, especially lutein and zeaxanthin.
One of burdock`s major prebiotic compounds, inulin, is associated with maintaining a healthy intestinal environment and supporting healthy immune function. Burdock has also been used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine for maintaining healthy detoxification and blood purification.
In addition to its traditional use in maintaining urinary tract function and elimination of toxins, nettle is also one of nature`s most concentrated sources of vitamins and minerals.
The curcuminoids in turmeric have shown to have powerful antioxidant properties, which is especially significant considering the destructive effect of free radicals on liver health. More specifically, turmeric may enhance the activity of two enzymes crucial to liver health, glutathione-S-transferase and UDP glucuronyl transferase.
In addition to helping maintain healthy bile flow, studies suggest that artichoke leaf protects against free radical damage to the liver and may support proper liver cell regeneration. Artichoke leaf is also associated with healthy fat digestion.
In addition to its abundance of chlorophyll, vitamins and minerals, studies suggest coriander may help support the body`s own natural ability to remove heavy metals.
Wheat Grass Juice
Wheat grass juice is especially rich in chlorophyll, which may help contrinute to a healthy intestinal environment. It is also abundant in carotenoids, various vitamins and minerals as well as important protective enzymes such as superoxide dismutase (SOD).Cordyceps has historically been used for its adaptogenic properties and may support endurance, healthy energy metabolism, exercise tolerance and oxygen utilisation.
What Is MAGNIFOOD?
Each Terranova nutritional product is enhanced with its own synergistic complex of botanicals and phytonutrient-rich foods, called Magnifood. Magnifood ingredients are combined in a manner which enhances the body`s biochemical environment in order to maximise the potential benefits of the product`s vitamins, minerals and/or other nutrients. Many of the plants used in Magnifood are fresh freeze dried. Research shows that fresh freeze drying has the unique ability to retain a plant`s enzymes, and is shown to be superior to other drying methods in terms of activity, stability, solubility and preservation of a plant`s original fresh chemistry (as it was when the plant was harvested).
