Advigreen® Barley Grass doesn’t contain fat or cholesterol but does contain both essential and non-essential amino acids. Interestingly, barley grass has 25 times more potassium than a banana, 10 times more calcium than milk, 5 times more iron than spinach and 6 times more magnesium than wheat flour!
Kale has powerful anti-cancer properties because of the glycosylates, flavonoids and carotenoids contained within. It is rich in vitamins C and K and also calcium.
Pears are low in fructose and are a good source for vitamin K.
Avocados are full of healthy fats. They contain oleic acid, a monounsaturated fatty acid that helps the lowering of cholesterol and also the absorption of vitamin K.
Limes help with mineral absorption increasing the nutritional value of smoothies as well as tasting great!
Ginger is added for its fresh taste and also for its host of health benefits. Ginger contains bioflavonoids that have anti-inflammatory properties which can help with muscle recovery. It also aids absorption of nutrients.
