Additional Information


Green Superfoods FAQ's

What are Green Superfoods and why should I include them in my diet?

Green Superfoods are a category of phytonutrient-rich nutritional products derived from green plants, algae and cereal grasses. These green foods naturally contain high concentrations of chlorophyll and are harvested seasonally to take advantage of high potencies of naturally occurring nutrients. Everyone should consume green foods daily. They are an excellent natural source of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, plant sterols and other nutritional constituents.

What is Blue-Green Algae and how is it processed?

Blue-Green Algae is a nutrient-rich green food that grows naturally in remote areas of mineral-rich Klamath Lake in the upper Oregon Cascades. As with most green foods, it is an excellent source of vitamins, minerals, trace elements, enzymes, amino acids, and protein (60% average). It is processed using low heat dehydration and is carefully screened to ensure the absence of unwanted microbes or toxins before it is freeze-dried.

What is the equivalency of NOW Broccoli Concentrate to fresh broccoli, and how much sulfophane per serving does it contain?

A stalk of broccoli can provide up to 220% of the daily value of vitamin C and 15% of the daily value of vitamin A as beta carotene. In addition, broccoli contains other phytonutrients that provide additional antioxidant activity. Two of our Broccoli Concentrate tablets provide the same amount of phytonutrients as a half cup of fresh broccoli and contain 1700 mcg of sulforaphane, 34 mg total glucosinolates, and significant amounts of sulfur. This product is derived from whole, fresh broccoli with certified levels of phytonutrients.

What Green Superfoods does NOW currently carry?

Because they are so important to overall health, NOW carries a number of different Green Superfoods. We currently carry Alfalfa, Barley Grass, Blue-Green Algae, Broccoli Concentrate, Chlorella, Chlorophyll, Dulse, Kelp, Spirulina and Wheat Grass. We also carry supplements like Eco-Green Protein Powder Meal Replacement and Green Phytofoods powder and tablets.

How do you use your Kelp powder? Do you mix it with water?

Tomato or any vegetable juice works best and the resulting mixture tastes much better than kelp in plain water. Use at least 8 oz. of liquid per serving. Sprinkling kelp on foods such as salads or soups can work well, taking advantage of its unique taste.
