Midori Greens® is a groundbreaking, premium SuperGreens Blend with a core of three traditional Japanese ingredients: Ashitaba, Japanese Matcha Green Tea & Wildcrafted Wasabi.
Ashitaba is used for “heartburn” (gastroesophageal reflux disease, GERD), stomach ulcers, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, gout, constipation, and allergies to airborne allergens like hay fever. Ashitaba is an antioxidant and appears to reduce the secretion of stomach acid (source: WebMD).
Japanese Matcha Green Tea is the highest quality green tea available and retains the greatest amount of nutrients like the antioxidant epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). Research indicates that EGCG is 25-100 times more potent than the antioxidant vitamins C and E and provides critical support for the immune and cardiovascular systems.
Wildcrafted Wasabi is an excellent source of sulforaphane, a sulfur compound that "exhibits anticancer, antidiabetic, and antimicrobial properties in experimental models" (Wikipedia). It is also a potent antioxidant and helps support detoxification - slowing down phase 1 (cytochrome P450) and reducing the production of highly reactive by-products, while at the same time increasing the activity of certain phase 2 conjugation pathways.
Midori Greens® also contains Field-Grown Whole Grasses, Herbs & Vegetables, Broken Cell Wall Chlorella, Marine Phytoplankton and Beet Juice Powder.
This one-of-a-kind blend contains naturally-occurring phytonutrients and is a great addition to a healthy diet and active lifestyle.
