It isn’t easy to nourish your body in todays’ world: changes in agriculture, soil erosion, and the overuse of pesticides and fertilizers have rendered our food less nutritious than it once was, and even the healthiest of us might be at risk for developing nutrient gaps.More
Fresh fruits and vegetables are the original role models for greens+. The formula was inspired by the powerful benefits of a diet rich in colourful nutrient-dense foods, in a world that was increasingly turning to processed, packaged foods for sustenance.
One scoop of greens+ daily ensures that you consume an entire range of powerful nutrients not only from fruits and veggies – but superfoods, sea vegetables and standardized herbs, delivering all of the nutritional magic these potent foods offer that are not always available – no matter how great your diet is!
This combination of 23 hand-selected ingredients synergistically provides the phytonutrient protection that diet alone simply cannot. University of Toronto researchers established the diversity and potency of the many phytochemicals in greens+ including antioxidants, polyphenols, carotenoids, quercetin, apigenin, kaempferol and luteolin – big nutritional words that make BIG changes in your health.
How does this stack up to some well-known healthy foods? We put greens+ under the microscope alongside some nutritionally potent foods to compare phytonutrient levels, gram for gram:
Polyphenol levels : mg/gram
From apple fruit to wheat grass, these 2-dozen hand-picked ingredients within the product are supported by research, but it is the synergy of these ingredients that provides the spectrum of health benefits that a diet extremely rich in fruit and veggies can offer! As super as broccoli and kale are – a powdered version of them simply cannot provide the many benefits a complete scoop of greens+ can!Close
Everyone suffers from a lack of energy from time to time, but do you constantly feel like you’re walking through a fog? Tired body, tired mind, tired everything? Low energy is not a simple problem, but rather a complex issue, and nutrient gaps (missing elements in our diets), are often overlooked as a potential culprit.More
Our body really wants to be healthy and balanced; it works constantly to keep us feeling great and energetic. Boundless energy, and true vitality are signs that your body is balanced and running smoothly. Unfortunately, the majority of us miss out on this way of living, as diets lacking in nutrients, environmental pollutants and psychological stressors can take a toll on the body that tend to show up first as reduced energy levels. Constantly feeling fatigued is your body’s way of telling you that your batteries are running low.
The energy-giving benefits of greens+ is where our quest for research began. When greens+ was introduced, increased energy was the first thing people noticed when they incorporated the formula into their daily regimen – and the testimonials came pouring in. Genuine Health wanted to pinpoint exactly what gave people this incredible energy and turned to the microscope and clinical trial for a closer look.
Two studies ensued that revealed the ability of the greens+ formula in increasing energy: through the transport and use of oxygen during physical activity, and the remarkable lift in energy (compared to placebo) in over 100 women. Not only that – these studies indicated the action of greens+ in increased vitality: emotional strength in the context of stress resiliency that is an excellent marker of both physical and psychological well-being – only experienced when one is properly nourished.
This results of this research has endured the test of time – as testimonials of vibrant energy continue to pour in 20 years later. Read what others have to say here.Close
Finding balance is the ultimate health goal – and the most elusive, certainly when it comes to managing our body’s acid/alkaline balance. Unhealthy acid loads are rampant in our society due to a western diet heavy in acidic processed grains and meats and low in alkaline fruits and vegetables, not to mention the contributions that environment toxins and stress levels make to this load.More
So how does pH imbalance affect your health? Various systems of our body have specific pH levels that are kept tightly regulated. When the diet is too acidic, the body works to offset the acid load in order to keep these pH levels stable – potentially at the cost of your overall health!
When we consume too many acid forming foods, and not enough alkaline-forming foods, the body looks to its own ‘buffers’ (stored alkalizing minerals) to neutralize the acidic load. Keeping our pH regulated is a form of stress on our body, and a heavy acidic load, causes imbalances that can show up as:
This is where greens+ is proven to help! Based on the Potential Renal Acid Load (PRAL) of foods, researchers have established a way to measure the ability of foods to increase or decrease the acid-base balance in the body – the more negative the score, the more alkaline the food. In a clinical study – greens+ was indicated to have a negative PRAL that is double that of raisins and spinach – the most alkaline foods! Further research examined urinary alkalinity after supplementation of greens+ for 14 days, which resulted in a two-fold difference overall in the alkalinity of the urine, confirming without doubt that greens+ is making a difference in improving human alkalinity.
Just one scoop a day provides nourishing and therapeutic benefits that you just can’t get from food alone: including alkalinity to shift your body into a balanced state! If your body is showing signs of pH imbalance, it’s time to make greens+ a daily part of your pH balancing act!

I do not want to have a health scare before I start thinking about taking a product like this.”
“I am a single mother of a very active 3 year old. I heard about Greens through a friend who is also a mother. I had recently quit smoking and felt lethargic and very “bleh”.

I will have the energy and the health to be present and play with my son. Thank you Greens+!”
Some people can’t imagine drinking a tall glass of green liquid, and truth be told, it may take some getting used to.
Each and every greens+ formula uses premium ingredients, including wheatgrass, barley grass, alfalfa grass, spirulina and chlorella, which all contain high levels of naturally occurring chlorophyll that contributes to the characteristic “green” taste found in green drinks. Some appreciate the “freshness” of this flavor, while others people describe this taste (mostly when referring to wheat grass shots) as “grassy”, “bitter” or even “swampy”. What is very telling about this, is that finding the green taste overwhelming is a testament to a greater need to supplement with an alkalizing green food supplement!But it doesn’t have to be this way!
This is where our expert product development team really shine – in making these high performance formulas not just palatable, but delicious for everyone! Equal to the importance of quality, proven ingredients – we really care about taste!

Good question! Absolutely not! But let’s clear up a misconception while we’re at it: some people think that lecithin is an ingredient used to “bulk up” superfood formulas, referring to it as a “filler”.
Lecithin is actually the most bioavailable “cell-friendly” source of the B-vitamin choline. The active ingredient in lecithin, phosphatidylcholine (PC), is a fatty nutrient that is critically important to the health of the nervous system and is important for healthy mental outlook and the prevention of cognitive decline. Phosphatidylcholine also enhances the absorption of antioxidants in greens+. Lecithin is unique as it allows for both water and fat soluble antioxidants to be absorbed more effectively, and has been shown to play an important role in helping plant-based phytochemicals pass through the gastrointestinal tract. In fact, recent research indicates that taking a green product without PC may result in poor absorption of antioxidants and therefore less effective results. PC in greens+ accounts for 12-15% higher antioxidant activity, compared to other superfood formulas in the market without PC.
For those looking to avoid soy, Vegan greens+ O harness the power of lecithin from sunflowers, providing all the same great benefits as our original version.
The original, award-winning greens+ formula as well as booster formulas contains highly alkalinizing ingredients like wheat grass and barley grass, which are known for their potent health benefits. Wheat grass and barley grass themselves do not contain gluten, but wheat and barley grains do contain gluten. Therefore, trace amounts of gluten may be present through the processing of the grasses. Amazing properties aside, these ingredients do contain trace amounts of gluten, which must be identified under Health Canada regulations. For a certified gluten-free option, Vegan greens+ O is the product for you!
In the greens+ ORIGINAL and greens+ booster formulas there are 8-strains of probiotics. These strains are initially cultured on a skim milk medium, and although they are removed from this base and considered to be “non-dairy”, Health Canada regulations require us to list “skim milk” as an ingredient in case of any potential cross-contamination. For a certified dairy-free product, Vegan greens+ O is the product for you! It is important to note that no dairy has been added to the greens+ formula.
There are so many reasons that make greens+ the number one green food on the market, but what makes us stand out is the time and care that goes into each and every ingredient in each and every bottle of greens+. While others use ground herbs, we take the time to source potent extracts, standardized to ensure their effectiveness. This provides a superior product which has been shown effective not through the amazing testimonials of greens+ believers, but through research as well. It is what has kept people coming back for over 20 years… With greens+ they feel the difference!
greens+ is the only research-proven green formula on the market, but at the present time we have not been able to meet our high standards of safety to replicate the formula without the use of preservatives while also maintaining the effective nutrient levels in our original formula. We continue to work on a liquid format that provides the same level of quality ingredients, outstanding nutrient profile, and effective results that has made greens+ the #1 green food supplement on the market.
