What does Greens Plus give me that regular foods do not?
The superfoods in Greens Plus possess 4 qualities that distinguish them from common foods. They are 100% natural, nutrient-dense, deliver a high ORAC factor, and provide many unique health benefits. Not only are all superfoods 100% natural, but many are organically-grown. Contrary to cartoons and comic books, if food is chemically-created in a lab it is much closer to being junk food than super. Mother Nature is the ultimate laboratory, and recent studies prove that organically-grown whole foods are more nutritious as well as healthier for you and the environment. Nutrient-density, or a high nutrient-to-calorie ratio, is a good indicator of food’s overall health benefits. While some Superfoods can be high in calories, they are always accompanied by rich concentrations of essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants with a high ORAC Factor. Total ORAC, or Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity, is the standard testing method used to measure antioxidant-rich foods, and higher numbers have a greater capacity to neutralize free radicals. Superfoods like wheat and barley grass, spirulina, red apple and dark chocolate all have high-ORAC ratings and many antioxidants associated with unique health benefits.
The Greens Plus Story
Greens Plus was formulated in 1989 by Sam Graci after 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. Co-founder and inspiration of Greens Plus, Lani injured her 4th, 5th, and 6th cervical vertebrae in a diving accident in 1958. At the young age of seventeen, she was diagnosed with quadriplegia and given just five years to live. Determined to beat the odds, Lani went on to continue her education, teach psychology and help others with disabilities, but poor health eventually caught up to her. Due to her severe injury, she suffered many years with a weakened immune system and an uncertain life expectancy.
In 1984, 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 completely transformed Lani’s health. Lani, who would spend six months of the year in a hospital bed, never went back and enjoyed an incredibly healthy life all the way through her passing, in the summer of 2012. In 1989, 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 several countries worldwide.
Over the last 24 years, Greens Plus has accumulated multiple international awards for product quality, integrity and effectiveness. Today, Greens Plus continues its dedication to helping people live healthier, happier lives.
