Because the current evidence that a diet rich in fruits and vegetables dramatically lowers the risk of almost all the common diseases of aging, the USDA recently boosted its recommendations for fruit and vegetable consumption. Its new MyPyramid food guide recommends 7 to 13 servings of fruits and vegetables daily! But a study published in the September 2006 issue of the Journal of the American Dietetic Association (JADA) found most of the population doesn’t even keep up with the old 5-A-Day guideline!The JADA researchers reported that:
- less then 1% of boys aged 14 to 18 years had adequate fruit and vegetable intake
- fewer then 11% met the new guidelines in all other age groups over 3 years old
- only 17% of women age 51 to 70 years met the standard
- on average, Americans eat less than a third of the recommended amounts of dark greens
Food scientists, leading nutritionists and doctors know that a diet rich in high antioxidant plant phytonutrients from fruits and vegetables helps destroy free radicals, promotes detoxification, and assists digestion and PH balance.
Can't I just take a multi-vitamin instead of Go Greens?
The National Institute on Aging states, "Most experts think that the best way to get these (antioxidant) vitamins is by eating fruits and vegetables (7 to 13 helpings a day) rather than by taking vitamin pills."What is the vitamin/mineral content of Go Greens?
Although Go Greens is micronutrient dense, it does not, nor is it designed to supply the RDV of every vitamin and mineral. Also, as Go Greens is a live food product, nutrient density will vary somewhat from batch to batch. However, Go Greens is specially formulated to supply 41% of the RDV of vitamin A (from naturally occurring beta-carotene) and:" ":ntioxidant rich, Go Greens does not supply more than 5% of the RDV of any other nutrient.How alkalizing is Go Greens compared to other greens products?
Acid-base pH balance is a very complicated physiology. Go Greens is alkalizing in the following ways:
I have food allergies. Can I take Go Greens?
- It is rich in organic alkalizing metals (CA, MG, K).
- It is rich in phytonutrients which stimulate bi-carbonate release in the pancreas.
- It is rich in prebiotics, which help create an acid colon (optimal pH 4.5) which enhances calcium uptake, which is alkalizing.
- It is a lipotropic (lecithin), supporting bile flow. Bile is the most alkaline substance in the body.
- It is rich in Phase I and Phase II supporting phytonutrients aiding liver detoxication of acids.
Go Greens contains NO yeast, egg, preservatives, MSG, glutamate derivatives, alcohol, artificial flavoring, salt, starch, malto-dextrin, wheat, corn, stabilizers, solvents, or dairy. Many of the food ingredients contained in Go Greens, like quercitin, have been shown to have antihistamine properties.I am allergic to soy. Can I take Go Greens?
Go Greens contains only soy lecithin, not soy proteins. Most persons have allergy to proteins. Soy lecithin is made from soybean oil, not protein. Of course, if there is any concern as to sensitivity, the general recommendation is to start very slow with very low doses and slowly work up if no symptoms appear.I am gluten sensitive. Can I take Go Greens?
Go Greens is less than 20 ppm gluten, with an extremely low gluten load per serving. The technical term is "gluten restricted". Certainly anyone with food sensitivity concerns should start with ¼ packet and, as things prove to go well, slowly increase to a full scoop over a week or two just to be safe. If under medical care, of course speak to your health professional.I am sugar sensitive and on a very low carb diet. Is Go Greens OK for me?
Go Greens is not only OK, but it is an excellent supplement for those on low carb, low calorie, and low sugar diets. Go Greens® supplies many of the phytonutrients that are missing in restricted low carb and low calorie diets. Plus, Go Greens has a systemic alkalizing effect, which helps counterbalance high acid ash protein and fat rich diets. Go Greens does not contain added sugar. The 6 gm of sugars listed on the label are carbohydrates from xylitol, a natural carbohydrate from birch, and other carbohydrates that occur naturally in the oat beta glucan, rice bran, super greens, and the fruit and vegetable juice powders. Go Greens is formulated with the highest grade stevia, a safe and natural leaf used for centuries in India. Stevia is often promoted as an aid in weight loss management. Stevia contains no calories and has only 6 grams of carbohydrate. It tastes so good in plain, cold water that adding high sugar juices is not necessary!Is Go Greens organic?
Go Greens is made with certified organic ingredients. Go Greens is manufactured in a cGMP, NSF, Organic & FDA State approved facility. Every ingredient that can be organic is organic. However, there is, for example, no organic powdered lecithin currently available, though To Go Brands does use non GMO lecithin. Only products that are at least 70% certified organic can make label claims like Go Greens.Can I make Go Greens less sweet?
Yes, you may simply add more water, or you may add lemon or lime juice according to your taste preferences.Is Go Greens a meal replacement?
No, Go Greens contains only 32 calories per serving, with only 1 gram of protein and less than 1 gram of fat. Go Greens is micronutrient dense (vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients), not macronutrient dense (carbs, pro:" ":Go Greens with one scoop (28 gm) of flavored whey, soy or rice protein and two heaping tablespoons of fresh ground flaxseed in 8 ounces of water, orange juice, non-fat milk or soy milk.What are the "Natural Flavors" in Go Greens?
The natural flavors in Go Greens are proprietary (that means they're a trade secret). However, we can assure you that all the natural flavors are 100% natural, plant sourced, organic, vegan extracts. There are no MSG, no glutamate based or neuro-excitatory peptides or additives, and no "flavor enhancers."I am caffeine sensitive. Can I enjoy Go Greens?
Go Greens has a minimal caffeine load of about 7 mg per serving from green tea. (A cup of coffee typically has 100 mg or more!) The green tea/white tea ingredients consist mostly of high polyphenol extracts called catechins, especially EGCG. The total tea extracts are less than 160mg. Nonetheless, it is common for people to feel a surge of energy when taking Go Greens, especially at first. Please rest assured that Go Greens contains no stimulants. Therefore, when first enjoying Go Greens, To Go Brands recommends you take your dose in the early morning, upon rising, until you are sure it is not interfering with sleep.Why is Go Greens my best choice in phytonutrition?
Go Greens was formulated to be the most complete, highest quality, best tasting, easiest mixing, organic phytonutrition product available. Plus, Go Greens comes in our convenient Rip. Pour. Go! anywhere/anytime travel packets. To Go Brands' stick pack line is "water's new best friend", indeed!Can I take Go Greens if I am on prescription blood thinners?
No, not without speaking to your doctor. Go Greens contains 29 mcg of Vitamin K per serving, and as such, maybe contraindicated when taking blood thinners. Of course, all prescription medical questions should be directed to your physician and pharmacist.Is it OK to mix all the different kinds of fruits and vegetables in Go Greens?
Some nutritionists recommend a food combining regime that separates the enjoyment of most fruits and vegetables at the same time. Such recommendations are given to maximize the ease of digestion and minimize gas and acid formation through fermentation. (Fermentation is a process related to the anaerobic conversion of sugar to carbon dioxide and alcohol by yeast.) As Go Greens contains natural, organic fruit and vegetable juice concentrates and extracts that have minimal natural sugar content, fermentation is not a problem. Indeed, it is a common anecdotal report that Go Greens supports healthy digestion and elimination.
Actually, Go Greens may be perfect for persons suffering from enteric or systemic candida infections. Phytonutrients have many, many beneficial effects on the immune system. They also promote Phase I and II liver detoxification. Go Greens has many natural ingredients, like cholagogues, lipotropics, and enzymes that promote normal bile flow, digestive function, and elimination. Bile is a powerful yeast killer! Those with severe candidiasis must often restrict their intake of fruits and grains, as they contain too much sugar. Sugar is the food that yeasts thrive on through fermentation. However, fruits and whole grains also have many beneficial nutrients. With Go Greens the diet is supplemented richly with a wide variety of phytonutrients, but with comparatively little carbohydrate. Therefore, Go Greens, also being free of common allergens, yeasts, and molds, may be integral to a well rounded approach to candidiasis control and prevention. The only proviso is to start slowly, so as to prevent too sudden a detoxication reaction.
