WHAT IS UDO'S CHOICE® GREEN BLEND? Our newly-formulated Udo’s Choice® Green Blend — a blend of fermented grasses, organic whole foods, herbs, and superfoods — delivers a nutrient-dense blend of single- and multi-celled plants from land, lake, and sea. It was created to provide people who care about health with a rich source of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, prebiotic fibers, and many health-promoting phytonutrients that support the trillions of cells in the body, help them carry out their many vital tasks, and protect against health issues related to nutrient deficiencies.*
WHY ARE GREENS IMPORTANT FOR HEALTH? In 2015, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that only about 1 in 10 American adults reap the many health benefits provided by eating the recommended daily amounts of fruits and vegetables (1.5-2 cups of fruits and 2-3 cups of vegetables), with Americans on average eating less than 9% of the recommended daily intake of vegetables.(1) Each 8 gram serving (about ½ tablespoon) of Udo's Choice® Green Blend is guaranteed to provide the nutrients equal to 33 grams of fresh, raw, organic greens.
WHAT MAKES UDO'S CHOICE® GREEN BLEND SO SPECIAL? The fermented greens in Udo’s Choice® Green Blend were made using a state-of-the-art fermentation process on high-quality organic barley, oat, wheat, and alfalfa. Fermentation is used to promote digestion, free nutrients for absorption, increase vitamin B production and bioavailability, and provide accessible minerals, amino acids, phytonutrients, and antioxidants from the food.(2,3,4)
Udo's Choice® Green Blend contains both soluble and insoluble fiber, which slows carbohydrate absorption, stabilizes blood sugar, provides food for friendly probiotic bacteria (aka prebiotics), and keeps our digestive tract clean and moving, for better nutrient absorption and regularity. Packaged in a re-sealable pouch, Udo’s Choice® Green Blend can be found in the supplement section of your local natural food store or supermarket.
WHO IS UDO'S CHOICE® GREEN BLEND DESIGNED FOR? Using sunlight as energy, and the collected wisdom of many years of successful existence on planet Earth, green plants play foundational roles as nature's powerful 'farmacy'. When we eat green and other plant foods, we benefit from thousands of natural bioactive compounds – called 'phytonutrients', 'phytochemicals', or 'nutraceuticals' – that plants manufacture for their own protection and survival. Many of these affect health and wellbeing through antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, detoxifying, hormone-balancing, cardio- and neuro-protective, and immune-supporting activities on a molecular level.*(5-14)
Because health, from fetal stage to advanced age, can benefit from the bioactive compounds and plant nutrients derived from greens, whole foods, herbs, 'superfoods', prebiotics, and fiber, Udo's Choice® Green Blend is designed for everyone.
Udo's Choice® Green Blend was also helps people who A) don't get enough greens in their diet; B) want a wider range of greens without having to buy each one of them separately; C) want more antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, fiber, and protein amino acids in their diet; D) have busy schedules and want to be sure they are getting enough nutrients; E) travel, and want portable and readily-available high-quality greens-based nutrients; F) don't particularly enjoy eating greens but still want their benefits; G) want to boost the nutrient profile of their smoothies or juices; H) have children and would like to find more ways to get additional plant nutrients into their children's diets (by adding it to their smoothies, yogurt, juices, soups, etc).*
