In vitro research examines the influence of greens+ on human osteoblasts

By Genuine Health

Research by: Dr. Leticia Rao, et al. University of Toronto.

MAIN OUTCOME: In 2 separate studies, greens+ was shown to directly influence the differentiation of human osteoblasts (the cells that form bone). In addition, greens+ stimulated bone mineralization. In a follow-up study,
the University of Toronto researchers confirmed that greens+ stimulated osteoblasts and bone mineralization and uncovered at least one mechanism for the effects. As a result the researchers concluded that: “The results showed that greens+ may have beneficial effects on bone formation in vitro due to its antioxidant polyphenolic content and we can speculate that it may be a good alternative to drugs for the prevention of osteoporosis.” It appears that the ingredients in greens+ act synergistically to inhibit free radical production. Reactive oxygen species were shown

to interfere with osteoblast differentiation and mineralization. The effects of greens+ were stronger than that of individual antioxidants [e.g. epigallocatechin-gallate (EGCG) from green tea] alone. First study was presented at the 26th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Bone and Mineral Research in Seattle, Washington, Oct 2-5, 2004. Second study was presented at the 27th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Bone and Mineral Research in Nashville, Tennessee, Sept 23-27, 2005.

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.
