Greens Matrix is more than just a greens blend. With 39 ingredients included in the formula, Greens Matrix is certified organic and GMO free. It contains a combination of 4 essential ingredient groups:
Greens and Reds: The core greens mixture includes vegetable extracts from broccoli, spinach, kale and parsley. Spirulina and chlorella are added for their magnesium- rich chlorophyll content and many cardiovascular benefits. The red blend is a mix of berries such as blueberry, tart cherry and cranberry that provide proanthocyanidins, the powerful antioxidants with beneficial effects on mood, cognition and cardiovascular function.
Adaptogens: Various herbs have been included for their ability to positively affect stress, cortisol and the HPA-axis, modulate the immune system and reduce inflammation. Greens Matrix contains some of the most well-researched adaptogenic herbs, including rhodiola rosea, ashwagandha, astragalus and Siberian ginseng.
Mushrooms: Known for their powerful immunomodulating effects, mushrooms have long been consumed as nutritive compounds chock-full of vitamin and minerals. Current research supports many of these ancient uses for specific mushroom species. For example, clinical trials show that reishi can drastically increase natural killer cell activity, promote healthy cellular differentiation and reduce metastases. Additionally, Lion’s Mane has been shown to have an affinity for the nervous system through the induction of nerve growth factor.
Superfoods: Acai, goji berry and camu camu give Greens Matrix a combination of high-capacity antioxidants and nutritive compounds. Some of the included superfoods have been incorporated for their clinically studied benefits. As just one example, Amla fruit has been shown to be effective in treating dyspepsia, healing stomach ulcers and reducing general inflammation in the digestive tract. It has also demonstrated the ability to lower blood sugars and improve lipid profiles in diabetics.
Collectively, Greens Matrix provides one of the most comprehensive blends of plant extracts to support the individual through a broad range of health concerns, encouraging optimal physiology and well-being. Each 300 gram container offers 44 servings.
