VITAMIN C (MINERAL ASCORBATES) is a buffered form of vitamin C that is easily absorbed and will not cause gastric distress. Vitamin C is essential for cellular antioxidant support.
CALCIUM AND MAGNESIUM (ASCORBATE) Consumption of an acid-promoting diet has been shown to support bone resorption of alkaline minerals. Calcium and magnesium are alkaline ash minerals that help promote pH balance and support bone structure.
ZINC (AMINO ACID CHELATE) is involved in more than 200 zinc-dependent metalloenzymes. These enzymes are involved in metabolism of proteins and nucleicacids and energy production. Zinc has also been shown to have immune-modulating activity and supports gastrointestinal health.
SELENIUM supports antioxidant and detoxification activity. Selenium is necessary for the activity of selenium-dependent glutathione peroxidase, an enzymeused in the degradation of toxins as well as the elimination of free radicals.
BARLEY GRASS (HORDEUM VULGARE) consists of the young, micronutrient rich green leaves of the barley plant. Barley grass has potent free radical scavenging capabilities due to its high concentration of polyphenolic compounds.
SPIRULINA (BLUE GREEN ALGAE) (SPIRULINA PLATENSIS) is one of nature's most complete sources of nutrition. Spirulina is a photosynthetic microorganism that provides high doses of therapeutic nutrients including B-complex vitamins, minerals, proteins, gamma-linolenic acid and antioxidants such as beta-carotene, vitamin E, and a number of unexplored bioactive compounds.
SEA KELP is best known as a valuable source of vegetable-protein bound organic trace minerals. However, it is also an excellent source of protein, B vitamins, and lignans. Intake of kelp has been shown to support healthy thyroid activity, mainly attributed to its high iodine content. The lignans in sea kelp also support hormone levels and may be of benefit in reducing symptoms associated with peri-menopause.
VEGETABLES are a rich source of antioxidants and essential nutrients. Unfortunately, many Americans struggle to meet the suggested five to nine servings of produce per day. Ultra Greens pH contains a blend of 13 different vegetables to help your patients meet their daily nutrition needs.
ENZYMES are the catalysts in all endogenous biochemical reactions. As humans have switched to a diet that focuses primarily on processed foods, dietary consumption of enzymes from raw foods has declined creating the need for supplementation. Enzyme supplementation can support digestion and overall body communication. Proteolytic enzymes help support the circulation and delivery of nutrients to tissue.
