Vibrant Health Pure Green Protein Powder Mixed Berry - 16 oz. (452.55 grams)
Vibrant Health Pure Green Protein Powder is a revolutionary formula of PureGreen vegetable protein with the amino acid ratio of human muscle and a delicious mixed berry flavor. Vibrant Health PureGreen Protein Powder is an alkalizing, nutrient dense, plant protein complex from 13.7 lbs of vegetables with all branched-chain aminos (BCAAs) to improve muscle synthesis and endurance. Vibrant Health Pure Green Protein is a wonderfully balanced and bioavailable complete protein.
Protein supplements come in many forms. Some are a better fit for us than others. Egg albumin and whey proteins have long been considered the best -- until now. The amino acid profiles of albumin and whey supply all the essential amino acids needed by human muscle, although not quite in the proper ratios to precisely match. They nevertheless are efficiently utilized by the human body to build muscle tissue and other structures. What isn't needed for tissue building is usually burned up for energy production. Indeed, about 55% of dietary protein is commonly converted to energy. That is actually a good thing because conversion of protein to energy happens at a gradual pace, resulting in sustained and steady blood sugar levels.
Plant proteins have historically been poorly suited for human use. Most lack one or more essential amino acids or contain so little of one or another of them that it is as if the amino acid were absent. Hemp protein is a classic example. Its amino acid profile is a miserable match for human muscle tissue.
Soy protein's amino acid profile is also unbalanced for human needs, with the additional problem of "anti-nutrients" that interfere with basic aspects of human biochemistry. First among them are inhibitors that block trypsin and chromotrypsin, enzymes needed for protein digestion. Soybeans also contain haemagglutinin, a clot-promoting substance that causes red blood cells to clump together, goitrogens that depress thyroid function, and one of the highest phylate levels of any grain or legume. Phylates block intestinal absorption of essential minerals (i.e., calcium, magnesium, copper, iron and zinc). Residues of these anti-nutrients often remain in processed soy proteins.
Other plant proteins fare better under analysis. Pea protein ranks highly with an amino acid ratio suitably approximating human muscle. Spirulina protein and rice protein have value by containing good amounts of all essential amino acids, in fairly good balance.
By combining a variety of plant proteins in correct amount, and adding a few select free amino acids, it is possible to create a purely vegetable protein with an amino acid ration that surpasses albumin and whey proteins, and in nearly equal to that of human muscle tissue. That is exactly what Vibrant Health has done in PureGreen Protein. Non-GMO protein from pea, rice, spirulina and alfalfa are joined with four select free amino acids to create the first all-vegetable protein ideally balanced for human consumption.

How come the greens in Pure Green Protein powder are not Organic?
The only green things in it are spirulina, which is actually blue green, and it IS certified organic. The other green ingredient is alfalfa protein. It is, so far, made by one company in Canada, and they do not yet have organic certification.
About Vibrant Health
Vibrant Health is a brand for those seeking, well… vibrant health. Their promise is to design and market the most nutritionally valuable food supplements they can for the benefit of all men, women, and children. Delivering on that promise is a serious endeavor, and they work diligently toward that end for you.
Vibrant Health's products provide supplemental nutrition that supports human biochemistry. The human body carries an infinite wisdom that guides it toward optimum health in response to appropriate dietary improvements. The steady decline in trace nutrient value of their fresh foods — as evidenced in the U.S. Department of Agriculture's analyses of their food supply — has, in the opinion of Vibrant Health, established a mandate for supplemental nutrition. They believe supplemental nutrition is no longer an option, it is instead a necessity if one hopes to achieve robust and vibrant health.
In the category of green foods, their Green Vibrance was the first green superfood introduced into health food stores in 1992. Since that time, Green Vibrance has undergone twelve reformulations in order to incorporate the latest nutritional materials that will enhance the underlying rationale of Green Vibrance. They have addressed joint health in the same way, introducing Joint Vibrance in 1995. Joint Vibrance is the most comprehensive formula for the support of joint health, and includes botanical ingredients synergistic to the nutritional roles of Glucosamine, Chondroitin sulfate (CSA), MSM and hydrolyzed bovine and avian collagen.
Urinary tract health is addressed through U.T. Vibrance and U.T. Biotic. The former is a formula based on D-mannose and complementary botanical ingredients. The latter provides cranberry extract and probiotic bacteria intended to maintain the proper microbiota associated with healthy urogenital tissue. Their patented Cran-Max capsules are recommended as regular, daily supplemental nutrition for urinary tract health, yet the product may be even more valuable to vascular health. Its broad range anti- oxidant properties also make it valuable as a general nutritional supplement.
Curcuminoids from standardized turmeric extract are found in two potencies in the Vibrant Health line, 250 mg. Curcuminoid-95+ and Maximized Curcuminoids at a strength of one gram per tablet. More anti-oxidants are found in Life Preserver, their multiple antioxidant formula that goes far beyond the standard A, C, E and Zinc to incorporate alpha-lipoic acid, CoQ10 plus a full range of water soluble, fat soluble, botanical and mineral antioxidants. They have yet to see any other antioxidant formula that is so complete or presents so bold a position of support for cellular health.
Vibrant Health's combination of soy phytosterols (i.e., beta-Sitosterol, Stigmasterol, Campesterol, Brassicasterol, Ergostanol, Stigmastanol, etc.) and policosanol in pleasant, chewable Enhanced Cholesterol Blocker tablets delivers plant substances known to be effective in blocking absorption of dietary cholesterol with potential benefits to blood cholesterol levels. Glycemic Vibrance H capsules provide trace nutrients that may support normal blood sugar levels within the normal range.
Vibrant Health's quest for the plant with the greatest biomass of sulfated polysaccharides led us to red marine algae of the family Gigartinaceae. Several of these Gigartina red marine algae have shown themselves to be the best sources yet discovered of sulfated polysaccharides. Vibrant Health's Gigartina Red Marine Algae combines the five strains of Gigartina shown to deliver the most sulfated polysaccharides.
A costly extract of their algae isolates the sulfated polysaccharides of Gigartina Red Marine Algae into what we call RMA extract. They then incorporate the extract into a unique ointment based on emu oil with herbs and essential oils. The result is RMA Ointment, a quiet little product with ability to soothe skin. Plants can be the source of many key nutrients. Vibrant Health has turned to them as the source for highly bioavailable trace minerals. Their newest phyto mineral is a patented calcium fructo-borate, a form of boron found in plants. The patent for the material in their Super Natural Boron confirms its ability to support normal levels of hormonal Vitamin D and testosterone. Keeping these hormones at optimal levels helps maintain bone health, as has long been known. Every mammalian species tested, in fact, has shown improved calcium retention and strengthened bone tissue under supplemental doses of boron that would equate to 3 milligrams daily in humans. Current evaluations of their food supply and eating habits place the daily dietary intake of boron from food at 1 to 1.25 mg.
50% of your body's immune cells line the intestinal tract. They're your first line of defense in your immune system. Their Immune Defense links bovine serum immunoglobulins (a more concentrated source than colostrum) with arabinogalactans, RMA extract and beta glucans into a powerful immune support formula.
Zinc is an important support nutrient for immunity too - and for many other structures and functions. Without enough of it, we can't grow, repair damaged tissue, digest food, taste food, smell anything and carry on over 380 other enzymatically controlled bodily functions. Vibrant Health thought zinc was a fine place to start building a line of mineral supplements. A Man's Zinc joins zinc arginate with soy sterols. Kreb's Zinc offers a general purpose supplement of the full Krebs complex zinc for the entire family.
