VG Plant Power is the latest in the VG Wellness line of products. It’s a green drink formulation that can be added to a smoothie, juice, or added to recipes.  Read on to find out what is included in our VG Plant Power green drink! 

Organic Barley Grass

Barley grass comes from the leaf of the barley plant. The grain is typically cooked and eaten as a side dish. Humans have been documenting the cultivation and consumption of barley for as long as we have been documenting our own history, dating back to at least 7000 BC. 

Barley grass juice is nutrient-dense, providing you with the following: beta carotene, B vitamins, pantothenic acid, folic acid, minerals, chlorophyll, amino acids, protein, fiber, and enzymes. Barley’s nutrient profile makes it a likely protector from illnesses such as cancer and greatly boosts the immune system. 

Green Drink

Organic Wheatgrass 

The consumption of wheatgrass goes back all the way to ancient Mesopotamia and Egypt, according to historical records. But it became popular in the Western world in the 1930s after Charles F. Schnabel, an agricultural chemist, began studying the plant for its health benefits. 

The leaves of young wheatgrass are rich in iron, calcium, enzymes, essential vitamins and minerals, amino acids, and chlorophyll. In fact, the phytonutrients in wheatgrass support the immune system and general wellbeing. 

Organic Spirulina

Spirulina is an alga– a cyanobacterium–that is harvested from freshwater sources, dried, and then ground into a powder. It has been consumed for centuries. The blue-green algae contain protein, B vitamins, calcium, potassium, magnesium, zinc, and iron. Spirulina is also rich in antioxidants and good fatty acids.  

This nutrient-dense superfood is thought to support the immune system, which helps to mitigate diseases and infections. The protein in spirulina provides added energy and helps those who want to build muscle mass. 

Spirulina is often added to smoothies, protein and snack bars, or added to a glass of juice. We make it easy for you to incorporate spirulina into your daily diet by including it as an ingredient in VG Plant Power, a superfood-filled green drink. 

Organic Alfalfa Leaf

Alfalfa, also known as Medicago sativa and lucerne, is a flowering plant from the legume family. While alfalfa is better known as a livestock and cover crop, it has been used for medicinal purposes for centuries. Ancient Ayurvedic texts from India describe using alfalfa seeds and sprouts for nutrition and healing of disease. 

Alfalfa is a source of Vitamins A, C, E, and K4. It is also a source of minerals, including iron, zinc, phosphorous, and calcium. 

Alfalfa leaf is thought to lower cholesterol levels, control blood sugar levels, mitigate chronic inflammation, and combat free radicals. This herbal supplement also appears to inhibit the absorption of cholesterol in the dietary tract. Other purported health benefits include boosting the immune system and improving overall health. 

Moringa oleifera

Organic Moringa Leaf 

Moringa leaf is high in essential micronutrients, including calcium, zinc, iron, magnesium, potassium, and vitamins A and C. It is also a complete protein, contains fiber, and is packed with antioxidants!

Did you know that chronic inflammation contributes to the development of disease over time? There are foods that contribute to inflammation, such as processed foods, soda, refined carbohydrates, and processed meat. But there are also foods that decrease inflammation. Moringa is one of those superfoods. Studies have shown that Moringa oleifera also contains dense amounts of phytochemicals, including isothiocyanates (ITCs) and flavonoids, which help to regulate oxidative stress in the body. (Oxidative stress activates inflammation, and we don’t want that.) 

Our bodies require adequate amounts of the three macronutrients–fat, protein, and carbohydrates–so we can feel well, increase and maintain strength, and have strong immune systems.  Protein is one of three essential macronutrients, and you might be surprised to learn that Moringa is very dense in protein. Not only are Moringa leaves dense in protein, but the plant provides all essential amino acids! Very few plants provide complete protein, so Moringa really is a superfood in a number of ways! 

We are so enthusiastic about Moringa oleifera’s healing and nutritional properties that we offer it in several formulations. We provide Moringa in tea, powder, supplement form. We have also carry Organic Moringa Oil and Organic Moringa Body Balm.

Organic Kelp

Kelp is a fast-growing, large brown alga that grows in coastal waters. It has been part of the Asian diet for centuries and is now consumed around the world in powdered form, pills, and capsules. It is very high in nutrients, a source of Vitamin B, calcium, potassium, iodine, iron, and magnesium. Sea kelp mitigates iodine deficiency, which is important for thyroid function. It also decreases inflammation and regulates insulin and blood sugar levels. Sea kelp is also thought to help in cancer prevention.  

Organic Orange Peel

Oranges are a delicious and nutritious snack, much loved by children and adults. But did you know that orange peel is high in flavonoids, calcium, folate, riboflavin, thiamin, niacin, and Vitamins A, C, B5, and B6? This means that oranges are great for anti-inflammation and overall health. The high antioxidant content also means orange peel could reduce cancer risks. Plus, orange peel gives an excellent boost to the immune system. 

Organic Beet Root

Beets have been domesticated as an agricultural crop since ancient times. They were used especially during the middle ages as a medicinal. Beetroot is rich in nitrates, which becomes nitric oxide upon consumption. This chain reaction may help to improve blood flow and decrease blood pressure. What could this result in? Increased stamina! In addition to nitrates, beets contain dense amounts of antioxidants, fiber, Vitamin C, folate, and potassium.  

Organic Dandelion Leaf

Dandelion is a plant much-loved by children because they enjoy blowing the puffy seeds through the air. Adults often see the dandelion as a pesky weed. But the roots and leaves of the dandelion have been consumed by humans for a long time, used for centuries as a medicinal in China, Europe, and by Native Americans.  

Dandelion leaf is a rich source of B complex vitamins, beta-carotene, antioxidants, potassium, iron, calcium, zinc, magnesium, and phosphorus. The leaves and roots even contain fiber and protein.

Dandelion is thought to aid in digestion and regulate blood sugar levels and blood pressure. It has antioxidant properties and may prevent cancer, improve the immune system, and decrease inflammation. 

Organic Spinach Leaf

Did you know that Spinach consumption originated in ancient Persia? Europeans were introduced to spinach in the 15th century and took to it right away. It is one of the most commonly consumed, well known green vegetables on our dinner plates. 

Spinach is very nutrient-dense, supplying a number of essential vitamins and minerals. But it is perhaps best known for its high concentration of iron, folate, and calcium. But that’s not all! Spinach also contains zeaxanthin for eye health, nitrates for heart health, lutein for eye health, and kaempferol and quercetin (both antioxidants) for decreasing inflammation and cancer risk.  

Spinach is incredible for strengthening muscles and bone health. It also boosts the immune system, has antioxidant properties, and decreases inflammation. Spinach is also beneficial for healthy blood pressure and heart health.
