In vitro testing confirms greens+ has a beneficial effect on Potential Renal Acid Load (PRAL) i.e. pH alkalizing abilities*

Research by: Enviro Test Laboratories, Edmonton.
MAIN OUTCOME: greens+ has a negative score on the PRAL test, indicating that it is an alkaline food in the human body. According to published research, negative PRAL foods can help compensate for acidic foods (meats, grains), which have the potential to remove calcium from the bones. PRAL provides an estimate of the production of endogenous acid that exceeds the level of alkali produced for given amounts of foods ingested daily. The concept of PRAL calculation is physiologically based and takes into account different intestinal absorption rates of individual minerals and of sulfur-containing protein, as well as the amount of sulfate produced from metabolized proteins. This method of calculation was experimentally validated in healthy adults, and it showed that under controlled conditions, acid loads and renal net acid excretion (NAE) can be reliably estimated from diet composition (Remer, et al. Am J Clin Nutr. 2003 May;77(5):1255-60). greens+ has double the alkalinity of spinach and raisins, the most negative PRAL foods. In addition, greens+ has proven to be able to significantly lower urinary pH after only 7 days of use; see Research #7 below for more information on this human study.

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.
