AIM LeafGreens™, a unique combination of four green leaf juices, broccoli sprout powders. This Superfood is unlike anything else on the market, a green juice your whole family will love!
Leaves are among the most abundant sources of vital nutrients on the planet. AIM LeafGreens® is a combination of four leaf juice powders (spinach, field pea, faba bean, and barley) and broccoli sprout powder. LeafGreens is the only product on the market to utilize this unique blend of leaves and sprouts that work synergistically for optimal health benefits.
Spinacia oleracea is rich in nutrients, including many essential vitamins, minerals and potent antioxidants. Research shows that lutein may prevent age-related macular degeneration and cataracts. Among its many documented health benefits, the spinach leaf may also aid in curbing anemia, constipation, insomnia, obesity, high blood pressure, bronchitis and indigestion.
Field Pea leaf
Pisum sativum leaf contains the flavonoid kaempferol, which inhibits the osidation of LDL (bad) cholesterol and the formation of platelet clusters in the blood, providing benefits for those with arteriosclerosis. Kaempferol also plays a role in regulating the bolld's water-solium/glucose balance and kidney cell function, which can be problematic in diabetics.
Hordeum vulgare is the most nutritious of the green grasses. Barley leaf contributes to the high vitamin K and chlorophyll in CoCoa LeafGreens. Vitamin K is essential to the body's utilisation of calcium for bealthy bone density and to the healthy formation of blood clots to heas wounds. New research indicates that vitamin K may also help prevent the calcufication of arteries and regulate blood sugar. Chlorophyll protects the body from radiation, carcinogens and DNA damage and helps the body heal wounds, improve regularity and control odor.
Brassica oleracea sprouts contain the highest concentration of sulforaphane of the cruciferous vegetables. Sulforaphane is a phytonutrient that may lower inflammatory response and improve cardiovascular health. A 2004 study found that broccoli sprouts increases stress in both cardiovascular and kidney tissues in animals. A study published in 2009 found that oral consumption of sulforaphane reduced inflammation in human airways by increasing naturally-occurring enzymes in the body.
AIM uses an exclusive ultra-cold filtration technique. The juice is chilled to below 44 degrees Fahrenheit and concentrated through a series of filters. This mechanical process uses no chemicals or additives; the only addition is pressure. Through this concentration process, it takes 44 pounds of leaves to make one pound of LeafGreens. More leaves equals more nutrition.
How to use
Mix 1 teaspoon (3 g) with 6 to 10 ounces (180 to 300 ml) of cold water or your favorite beverage, or take 4 capsules. Take once daily on an empty stomach. New users begin with 1/2 teaspoon or 2 capsules.
Can I take LeafGreens and AIM BarleyLife® at the same time?
Yes, the two products are complementary. If you wish, take one teaspoon of LeafGreens and two servings of BarleyLife at different times of the day.
Are there people who should be concerned about the high levels of vitamin K in LeafGreens?
According to the Merck Index, there is no toxicity for natural vitamin K1 (from plants). Each 3-gram serving of LeafGreens contains 123 μg of vitamin K. AIM suggests beginning with 2 capsules or 1/2 teaspoon, providing 77 to 92 percent of the Reference Daily Intake for vitamin K. Your intake should be constant if on medication so your physician can then determine the proper dosage.
Do I need to take LeafGreens if I regularly eat vegetables?
Yes, it would be beneficial. One serving of LeafGreens contains as much iron as 5 servings of spinach, as much vitamin K as 8 servings of peas, and many other necessary nutrients that no one vegetable can provide.
I started taking LeafGreens and I feel worse. Why?
When you make a positive change in your diet, your body often goes through a cleansing known as detoxification. This can manifest itself in fatigue, rashes, and headaches. For more information, see AIM’s Detoxification datasheet.
Is there anyone who should not take LeafGreens?
LeafGreens is a whole food concentrate. Most people should be able to take it. Those with severe medical problems or on a restricted diet (especially in regard to green foods) should consult a health practitioner. Women who are pregnant or nursing are advised to consult a health practitioner.
