Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity†
Fruits and vegetables contain a high ORAC value. ORAC
value is a unit value assigned by researchers to measure the
antioxidant value of a given food. Foods with a high ORAC
value are beneficial to the body and contribute to balanced
antioxidant status. Antioxidants fight free radicals, the agents
that can cause cellular damage. Deeper Greens contains all
natural organic fruits (where available) and provides a high
ORAC, antioxidant blend. Deeper Greens incorporates the
latest science of the highest ORAC fruits and vegetables and is
formulated in a satisfying single serving to help patients fulfill
their dietary needs. Fruits and vegetables have an exceptional
combination of antioxidants that deliver greater nutrient value
and absorption than standard antioxidant supplements.
The Organic Advantage†
Organically grown plants traditionally have higher total
phenolic compounds. In a recent study at UC-Davis, researchers
found higher amounts of total phenolic compounds, such
as flavonoids, anthocyanidins, catechins and tannins, than
in traditionally grown fruit. An increase in these secondary
antioxidant metabolites help better support diets lacking in
fruits and vegetables.
The combination of organic fruits, from apples to acai berries,
provides a powerful blend of super fruits that helps maintain
health and well-being. Berries have long been known to be
highly concentrated in natural antioxidants, along with unique
properties that can enhance immune and brain health, as well
as metabolic function.  Consumption of a variety of fruits and
berries is known to improve antioxidant status and provide
long-term metabolic benefits. 
The combination of spirulina and wheat grass creates a
powerful nutritional energy boost. Spirulina is a blue-green
algae that has been used effectively as a health supplement
since ancient times and has been shown to support heart, brain and metabolic health. [2, 4] Spirulina is a rich source of a
variety of phytonutrients and antioxidants, including selenium,
phenolic acid, vitamin E and carotenoids. This nutrient-rich,
underwater plant is also a significant source of protein and
the amino acids valine, leucine, isoleucine, omega-6, omega-3,
vitamin B1, zinc, vitamin B2, iron, beta carotene, manganese
Wheat grass provides a number of concentrated nutrients,
including iron, calcium, magnesium, amino acids, chlorophyll
and vitamins A, C and E. Wheatgrass is known to support
immune balance, antioxidant status and gastrointestinal
health, as well as enhance nutrient consumption. [5, 6] It is
important to note that wheatgrass does not contain gluten. It
is removed from the wheat grain that contains gluten.
Vegetable Antioxidant Blend†
Like fruits, vegetables provide a significant number of valuable
nutrients, phytonutrients and antioxidants. Among the
most powerful are broccoli, onions, tomatoes, spinach, kale
and brussel sprouts. Each vegetable provides support for
detoxification, heart and thyroid health and immune balance.
All contribute to improved antioxidant status, while delivering
a wide variety of vitamins and minerals to enhance health and
Diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol, and rich in
fruits and vegetables that contain some types of dietary
fiber—particularly soluble fiber—may reduce the risk of
heart disease, a disease associated with many factors. The
Deeper Greens formula provides natural antioxidants from
fruits and vegetables.
