Study after study has shown that anyone who doesn't consume 5-10 servings of vegetables per day is missing out on nature's ultimate insurance policy. Vegetables provide the body with compounds not found in other foods including: enzymes, minerals, antioxidants and chlorophyll. Vegetables are nature's richest source of carotenoids including beta carotene and lycopene. By taking Perfect Food' every day, you'll never have to go without your 5-10 servings of veggies.
Only 9% of Americans consume the recommended 5 servings of veggies per day; even less consume 3-5 servings of green leafy vegetables.
Whole Food Nutrition vs Vitamin &
People often wonder if they should also supplement with a green food blend while taking a multiple
vitamin/mineral formula. Whole foods provide vitamins and minerals as nature intended, with all of the naturally occurring co-factors and synergistic compounds in tact. They contain hundreds, and
possibly thousands, of yet to be discovered nutrients, that cannot be isolated and put into a
vitamin / mineral supplement.
With whole foods and their concentrates containing complete nutritional complexes, the body is able to recognize these as food, easily assimilating what it needs and excreting what it doesn't this is called "selective absorption". Most vitamin and mineral supplements however, are made from fractionated, isolated, or synthetic sources, leaving your body no choice but to deal with these incomplete substances, thus creating a potential environment of bio-chemical imbalances and toxicities.
For optimal health, there is nothing better or more compatible to the
human body than nutrient-rich, unprocessed whole foods in their balanced,
natural state. Perfect Food is a new standard in whole
Grass, A Perfect Food
Nutrient-Rich Grasses: Cereal grasses are the only foods in the vegetable kingdom that, even if
consumed alone, enable animals to continually maintain weight, strength, and optimal health. Grasses are considered to be at, or near, the base of the terrestrial food chain. The powers of the sun that are trapped in its blades produce rich amounts of chlorophyll and other green photosynthetic
The grasses, known today as green superfoods, supply many nutritional
factors that even now
scientists cannot duplicate in a vitamin or mineral pill. Grass is perhaps the most nutrient-dense food on this green earth, richer in nutrients than spinach, broccoli, eggs and chicken in virtually all categories including protein, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, zinc, copper, manganese,
vitamin C, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B6, folic acid, vitamin B12, carotenoids, and vitamin E. They abound in unidentified growth factors, powerful antioxidants, immune boosters, and many other health supporting nutrients.
Why Garden of Life Perfect Food ?
In today's hectic lifestyle, it's nearly impossible to eat enough vegetables, especially greens, to satisfy our body's needs. Because of this, we are depriving ourselves of nature's ultimate insurance policy. Perfect Food was created to meet the demands of our fast-paced lives, by supplying every nutrient our body requires to sustain optimal levels of health.
A balance of nutrient-dense, enzyme-rich live foods, Garden of Life Perfect Food contains antioxidant green grasses, micro-algae, sea vegetables, whole vegetables and their juices, sprouted grains, seeds, legumes, and acerola cherries one of nature's most abundant food source of vitamin C.
What's in Garden of Life Perfect Food ?
Perfect Food contains the highest quality ingredients on the planet. Many other products use large amounts of inexpensive ingredients such as lecithin, apple fiber and flax seed meal. While these
compounds do provide some benefit, they are not nearly as beneficial as nutrient rich whole foods such as greens. These filler ingredients significantly reduce the manufacturer's cost of the product. Considering the cost of green superfoods, inexpensive ingredients used as fillers such as lecithin, apple fiber, rice bran and flax meal should not represent more than 10% of the product. If you look at the competing brands, the aforementioned ingredients typically make up over 30% of the product by weight. Perfect Food contains over 8500mg of highly concentrated absorbable green foods with no filler ingredients. Perfect Food is high in nutrition and low in calories, making it ideal for those on low carbohydrate diets.
Why not take vitamin and mineral pills
instead of Garden of Life Perfect Food
Whole foods contain hundreds and possibly thousands of yet to be discovered nutrients that cannot be isolated. Many of these nutrients provide amazing health benefits. With foods and food concentrates that contain whole nutritional complexes, the body can assimilate what it needs and excrete what it does not need; this is called selective absorption. On the other hand, with isolated and/ or synthetic vitamins, there is no choice. The body must handle the chemical in some manner and can suffer consequences of bio-chemical imbalances and toxic overdose. (New Hope for Incurable Diseases, E. Cheraskin & W.M. Ringsdorf Jr., 1971) Vitamins and minerals are devoid of living nutrients such as enzymes. Have you ever seen anyone plant vitamin pills in the ground and grow a vitamin bush? The nutrient dense enzyme rich "live foods" contained in Perfect Food provide vitamins and minerals as nature intended, with all of the co-factors and synergistic compounds. Try Perfect Food for one month and feel the difference real food makes!
