TERRANOVA Green Child Sneaky Greens Super-Shake is a comprehensive powder blend of superfoods for children aged 4-12, providing freeze dried greens, freeze dried berries, other fruits and veggies, cereal grasses, microalgae and friendly microflora.
Spirulina plankton is one of nature`s richest sources of plantpigments (such as chlorophyll, carotenoids and phycocyanin) and highly digestible protein (typically more than 55%), as well as providing vitamins, minerals, fatty acids and other compounds vital to life (i.e. the powerful antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase [SOD]).
Green Barley Grass
Barley grass contains a wide array of important health-giving compounds including chlorophyll and carotenoid pigments, easily digested protein (approximately 30%), fibre, vitamins, minerals and several important enzymes (such as the potent antioxidant superoxide dismutase [SOD]).
Acai is one of the highest ORAC (oxygen radical absorbance capacity) value fruits with signiificant concentrations of vitamin E, anthocyanin flavonoids, coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) and other antioxidant compounds. Acai berries also yield a remarkably high quantity of fatty acids and fibre.
Kale is a good source of many nutrients, with carotenoids and sulphur-rich antioxidants such as sulforaphane and indole-3-carbinol being among the most important.
A true superfood, the levels of so many important nutrients in watercress range from good to excellent - most notably carotenoids, flavonoids, glucosinolates (which convert into isothiocyanates), vitamins A and C, folic acid, vitamin K, calcium and iron.
Blackberries are among the highest ORAC rated antioxidant fruits and are a potent source of anthocyanin flavonoids and carotenoids (i.e. zeaxanthin, lutein, beta carotene and cryptoxanthin).
Black raspberries also rate very high in ORAC value, with potent antioxidant flavonoids and carotenoids being especially prominent. This fruit has a particularly high level of lutein and alpha carotene.
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).
- Enhancing absorption, bioavailability, utilisation, activity, stability, function and effect of the product`s nutrients.
- Providing synergistic enzymes and co-factors crucial to the utilisation and functions of the product`s nutrients.
- Providing a vast array of phytonutrients that enhance the potential functions and/or applications of the product.
- Providing ingredients which enhance the overall content of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients in the product.
- Protecting ingredients from oxidative damage, helping to support the stability and activity of the product`s nutrients.
