AMAZING GRASS BOOSTS GREEN SUPERFOOD POWDER
WITH POWERFUL ANTIOXIDANTS
New GREENSuperFood Antioxidant & Greens Powder Provides 15,000 ORAC Per Serving
San Francisco, CA (May 11, 2011) – Amazing Grass fans will be happy to know that the GREEN SuperFood they have come to rely on for amazing health and energy, is now available with an extra boost of powerful antioxidants thanks to the addition of 15,000 ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbency Capacity) units per serving. Using a combination of five key antioxidant blends made from high quality fruits, vegetables and herbs, the new GREENSuperFood Antioxidant & Greens Powder helps the body defend against the effects of evil free radicals and supports healthier skin, brain function and the immune system.
Just one scoop of the new GREENSuperFood Antioxidant & Greens Powder has a whopping 15,000 ORAC units compared to 900 per 3.5 ounce serving of broccoli or 210 per 3.5 ounce serving of carrots. “Unlike other ORAC concentrates that focus only on one of the five most commonly found free radicals, we use Spectraã Total ORAC to target all five major types,” says Todd Habermehl, Co-Founder of Amazing Grass. “These antioxidant superheroes of nutrition help support your body’s natural ability to neutralize free radicals and they make for a perfect sidekick to our popular GREENSuperFood,” adds Habermehl.
Free radicals are the by-products of a normal and necessary event – the burning of oxygen by cells in the body to produce energy. These by-products are damaged molecules that are missing an electron and want one badly enough to attack any nearby molecule to get it. If they take electrons from important components in the body, such as DNA (the body’s master plan for reproducing cells) or from protein or fat, they do damage to those cells and precipitate health problems. They can also be caused by environmental factors such as pollution, smoking and ultraviolet light.
Antioxidants are a group of compounds that act as free radical scavengers, donating electrons and neutralizing free radicals thus preventing their destruction to other cells. Certain phytonutrients and vitamins go around taking out the free radicals, converting them to harmless waste products that get eliminated from the body before they can do damage.
With more organic greens per gram, the GREENSuperFood from Amazing Grass has always been popular with health conscious consumers. Its unique and potent combination of nature’s most nourishing, cleansing & rebuilding vitamins and minerals offers organic whole food nutrients without fillers at grower direct pricing. All Amazing Grass products are made in the USA and are non-dairy, non-GMO, vegan, gluten-free and do not contain soy lecithin fillers.
The new GREENSuperFood Antioxidant & Greens Powder is sold in containers and in single serve packets. It can be found at health food stores across the country such as Whole Foods Market as well as online at http://www.amazinggrass.com.
