These synergistic phytonutrients combine to deliver a massive 110,807 Total ORAC units per serving.
Vitamin C — The Master Nutrient
Ascorbic Acid is considered by nutrition scientists to be the single most important vitamin required for human health. Almost all organisms can synthesize their own Vitamin C from glucose, with the exception of a small group of mammals that includes monkeys, apes and humans.
According to the Linus Pauling Institute, Vitamin C is involved in at least 8 enzymatic reactions and 6 life–sustaining systems, including:
- Energy Production
Without Vitamin C, the body cannot synthesize the amino acid Carnitine, which transports fat into mitochindria for conversion to adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the universal energy molecule.
- Antioxidant Network
Vitamin C not only neutralizes free radicals, but regenerates other antioxidants such as Vitamin E, preventing oxidative stress and protecting cells and vital organs.
- Collagen Synthesis
Vitamin C is an essential component of connective tissue and regenerates healthy blood, skin, tendons, ligaments and bone. Inadequate Vitamin C intake results in Advanced Glycation End–products (AGE's) causing structural weakness, inflammation and disease.
- Brain Chemistry
An important component of neurotransmitter production, Vitamin C converts dopamine to epinephrine and tryptophan to serotonin, promoting the proper balance of chemicals in the brain and central nervous system.
Vitamin C stimulates the genesis and function of white blood cells, increasing phagocytosis and interferon production and enhancing antibody mobility.
- Cardiovascular System
Vitamin C naturally promotes the vasodilation of blood vessels and results in muscular relaxation. It plays a role in the metabolization of cholesterol to bile acids, which in turn absorbs dietary fat and is another important step in the energy production process.
As an essential component of so many life–sustaining functions, it is important that we consume the highest quality Ascorbic Acid available, especially from fresh fruits and vegetables.
Most commercially–produced Vitamin C is created from sugar in either a chemical cocktail called the Reichstein Process, or by genetically–modified bacteria and/or yeast fermentation. Acetone, perchloric acid and benzene are just 3 of the toxic pollutants used to isolate Vitamin C, 80% of which originates in chemical factories in China.
By far the best source of natural Vitamin C is the Camu Camu Berry from the Brazilian Amazon. Just one cup of fresh Camu Berries contain 2520mg of Vitamin C, or 4251% of the recommended Daily Value, and provides Ascorbic Acid organically–bound to over 70 synergistic phytonutrients and antioxidants.
One 4 capsule serving of Camu Caps provides 400mg of 100% natural Vitamin C, the daily amount recommended for healthy adults by the Linus Pauling Institute. LPI estimates that 5 servings of fresh fruits and vegetables provides approximately 200mg of Vitamin C, therefore 1 serving of Camu Caps provides the same amount of Vitamin C as 10 servings fruits and vegetables.

The Greens Plus Story
Greens Plus was formulated in 1990 by Sam Graci after five years of research into the health-giving benefits of the worlds most nutritious superfoods. As an adolescent psychologist in the late seventies, Sam worked with Down Syndrome children, kids diagnosed with ADD, and problematic teenagers in the Canadian Educational System. Having a keen interest in nutrition, and knowing intuitively the importance of food upon the health of individuals, Sam observed the diets of children and began experimenting with vitamin/mineral and whole food supplementation. Immediate improvements in the children's energy levels, attention spans, mental acuity and overall sense of well being were observed.
Realizing the full potential of whole food concentrates and their superiority over synthetic vitamins and minerals, Sam was inspired to formulate Greens Plus by his sister-in-law Lani Deauville. Vice-President of Orange Peel Enterprises, Inc., Lani injured her 4th, 5th, and 6th cervical vertebrae in a diving accident in 1958. At the age of seventeen, she was diagnosed with quadriplegia and given five years to live. Determined then to beat the odds, Lani went on to continue her education, teach psychology and help others with disabilities. Due to her severe injury however, she suffered many years with poor health, a weakened immune system and an uncertain life expectancy.
In 1985, Sam prepared a green drink for Lani. She gave him suggestions for making it tastier, but the response of her immune system became his primary focus. After five years of trial and error, Sam perfected the Greens Plus formula and Lani now enjoys a life full of energy and good health. In 1991, Lani and her husband Jude, began distributing Greens Plus, first to their family and friends, and later to health food stores, health care professionals, national pharmacies and overseas to nineteen countries worldwide.
Over the last five years, Greens Plus has accumulated 9 international awards for product quality, integrity and effectiveness.
