Scientists from Eastern Michigan University set up an experiment involving healthy active adults – measurements of aerobic metabolism taken prior to and after 28 days – greens+ vs. placebo. Post-supplementation, greens+ users had significantly improved VO2 Max during an intense bout of cycling vs. placebo, indicating that the product improved the maximum capacity of an individual’s body to transport and use oxygen during physical activity. Based on additional measurements of blood lactate and markers of oxidation, the researchers conclude that the benefits of greens+ are not related to cardiac output, rather they are due to improved mitochondrial functioning. Mitochondria are the batteries, or energy powerhouses of each cell, improved mitochondrial function = improved energy. Provides further scientific support to the University of Toronto energy and vitality study published in 2004.
McGregor SJ. greens+ and mitochondrial function: Initial findings. Aug 28th, 2009
Scientific investigations focused on greens+ have demonstrated that this unique product has direct physiological influences on a variety of the body’s systems. The results show that greens+ improves long-term energy levels and boosts antioxidant levels. In addition, the combined ingredients have significant antioxidant activity (ORAC), work synergistically to alkalize the body (PRAL), protect cells against toxic assault, and promote healthy bones. Among green food supplements, only greens+ with its high quality ingredients and unique blend of standardized herbs is research-proven to provide these results.
