Grandma’s secret health tips can rarely go wrong! She always told us that eating green leafy vegetables was good for us! And now nutritionists authenticate this by recognizing universally that green leafy vegetables are one of the most potent sources of so many important nutrients!
So whether you are trying to lose or maintain weight and reduce the chances of cardiovascular diseases, leafy vegetables are ideal as they are typically low in calories and fat, high in dietary fiber, rich in folic acid, vitamin C, potassium and magnesium, as well as containing a host of phytochemicals, such as lutein, zeaxanthin, and beta-carotene (all three useful for macular health). The high magnesium content and low glycemic index makes them ideal food for diabetic people as well.
But in modern times when most foods (fresh or packaged) are laden with pesticides, insecticides, additives, synthetic taste enhancers, artificial flavorings to increase shelf life and saleability, how do we ensure that we get a continuous supply of antioxidants and chlorophyll without worrying about their source and genuineness?
Look no further as Forever Living Products brings a simple solution to “convenience eating” in the form of Fields of Greens. It’s a synergy of nutritional elements, especially formulated to combat any nutrient deficiencies.
Forever Fields of Greens
Fields of Greens synergistically combines young barley grass, wheat grass, alfalfa and cayenne pepper bonded in Forever Honey to promote health and energy.
- Barley Grass
Barley grass is said to have 30 times more vitamin B1 and 11 times the amount of calcium than cow’s milk. It has one of the highest natural levels of enzyme that are necessary in regulating body function. But the most amazing nutrient in Barley Grass is “chlorophyll,” a natural detoxifier that rids the intestines of stored toxins. Chlorophyll is to plants what blood is to humans. Being rich in both soluble and insoluble fiber, barley grass may help aid in excretion of waste products from the body.
- Wheat Grass
Wheat grass juice is considered as a complete food and contains most of the vitamins and minerals needed for human maintenance. It is one of the most powerful natural nutritional sources and like barley grass, is very high in chlorophyll content. Wheat grass is a highly popular as it can be easily digestible and is known to boost metabolism. The antioxidants may help repair damaged cells and rejuvenate aging skin. One of the most talked about benefits of wheat grass is its ability to boost RBC (Red Blood Corpuscles) count.
The benefits of alfalfa were first discovered thousands of years ago by the Arabs. They found that when horses ate alfalfa they were stronger and faster. Through this discovery, they started adding alfalfa grass to their own diets and saw the difference it made to their stamina levels. Convinced of its health benefits, they named it “Alfalfa” – meaning “father of all foods.”
So what are its nutritional benefits? It contains eight essential amino acids, which are the building blocks of proteins. Its leaves are rich in minerals, including calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, and zinc. And above all, like the other two, it’s a good source of chlorophyll. Herbalists consider it to be a good general tonic owing to richness in vitamins, minerals and proteins. Alfalfa’s roots are known to grow as much as 130 feet into the earth, searching for the best minerals the earth holds!
- Cayenne Pepper
This herb is a great food for the circulatory system as it is known to help feed the necessary elements into the cell structure of the arteries, veins and capillaries. The warming agents in cayenne produce natural warmth in the body and aids in assimilation, elimination and stimulation of the peristaltic motion of the intestines, Cayenne Pepper is known as a catalyst for all herbs.
The combination of these four primary ingredients makes Forever’s Fields of Greens one of the most popular nutritional supplements in the market today! So how many tablets do we need to have every day? There are really no fixed doses and it depends entirely on the benefits you seek. However, for an average adult person, 2-3 tablets a day can be recommended.
