“Eat the rainbow” is a colorful tagline used by dietitians and nutritionists, but as fruity as it may sound, it’s a completely legitimate strategy for good health. FIELD OF GREENS delivers a full-spectrum of colors with fruits, veggies, herbs, spices, and more to support and improve well-being. Different colors of fruits and vegetables contain different kinds of phytochemicals – each with their own unique set of qualities. The major colors are red and green, not coincidentally located at opposite ends of the color wheel. Red fruits and vegetables tend to contain more anthocyanins, tannins, flavonoids, carotenoids, and stilbenes. Greens contain coumarins, phytosterols, and lignans as well as flavonoids. Broadly, these chemicals participate in anti-oxidation, lipid metabolism, and glucose metabolism.
NATURAL SOURCE OF VITAMINS AND MINERALS
SUPPORT HEALTHY METABOLISM
Directions: Take 1 serving (one scoop) and mix with 8 oz. or more of water.
FIELD OF GREENS’S Organic Greens Blend contains 12 different vegetables, fruits, and herbs. Some of the well-known greens like spinach, kale, and broccoli are rich in phenolic acids, carotenoids, flavanoids, glucosinalates, and vitamins. Researchers have found the phytochemicals contained in such foods to be a primary reason why vegetables reduce the risk for various diseases. A few unique plants, spirulina and chlorella, are superfoods. These blue-green algae can detoxify heavy metals, improve white blood cell function, reduce cholesterol, and improve endurance.
A healthy metabolism is paramount for overall health. Without it, everything else breaks down. Ginger, Licorice, Turmeric, and Green Tea all support a fully functioning metabolism. Ginger reduces nausea and increases nutrient absorption by increasing enzyme activity in the digestive tract. Licorice helps protect against heartburn and ulcers. Turmeric performs a myriad of helpful functions such as reducing gas and bloating and promoting liver health (the liver is perhaps the most important organ for metabolism). Finally, Green Tea increases metabolic rate, fat oxidation, and insulin sensitivity
The Organic Reds Blend is packed with anthocyanins, carotenoids, tannins, and more. Blueberry contains very high levels of malvidin, an anthocyanidin that can reduce DNA damage, blood pressure, pro-inflammatory factors, and general oxidation along with several other beneficial effects. Tart cherries are a popular food with endurance athletes for their ability to promote lipid metabolism and reduce muscle damage and soreness. Beets are another superfood. High in naturally-occurring nitrates, beets improve vascular health.
The influence of gut bacteria on human health is strikingly robust. To keep our helpful bacteria going, FIELD OF GREENS contains 2 grams of prebiotic fiber, which is essentially bacteria food. Bacillus Coagulans improves immunity, reduces bloating, enhances protein absorption, and increases anti-inflammatory cytokines.
Bought FoG on a whim after hearing about it on the best podcast around. I’ve mixed it with water and tea, but where the flavor explodes is in a fruit juice. I’ve really been digging the flavor in a pomegranate-blueberry juice blend.
As for the effects... I’m not sure what to attribute it to (FoG, flu shot, luck?) but I haven’t gotten sick yet this winter while my family has, I generally feel good after throwing back some FoG, and I’ve noticed that my “schedule” has become a little more regular over the last couple weeks since starting the supplement.
Time will tell and I have a physical coming up in a month. I’m excited to see if my bloodwork shows any attributable changes over last year. Good product. Happy I gave it a shot.
I dont eat veggies and this a great tasting alternative! Great tasting to boot! Great job guys!
Works, but so sweet, it's difficult to get down
We finished a container in 2 weeks (between spouse and I). I can drink it with just water or with very little juice and it taste great. We've been taking it every day and we just opened another can today. I would recommend and hopefully, you can make a bigger can so we don't run out quickly. I've been taking it daily and I feel great.
The licorice flavor is a challenge but I like the idea.
