Options Naturopathic’s GREENS   Dr. Erin   

          SEE PRODUCTS BELOW

I have come to think of greens as a fundamental supplement. Alongside, probiotics (HMF) and
EFA's (essential fatty acids, such as Perilla, Flax or Fish oil) greens are the primary nutrients that
are most often neglected in the modern diet. Greens are a source of B vitamins, minerals and
trace minerals that are especially assimilable since they originate from plant sources. I find it
sensible to attain as much nutrition as we can from food and secondary to that, from supplements
that originate from a food source when warranted for deficiency or other health reasons. As one
example, I promote the use of Urtica Ferrum, a specialized Nettles tincture where iron has been
diluted into the water used for the Nettles as they grew, which has been found to amplify the iron
in tincture made from those nettles. Urtica Ferrum is ideal for anemic patients and those
intolerant to iron supplements. In fact, assimilating minerals from vegetable sources is the most
natural and optimal way for humans to take in minerals.

Options carries five greens products, including Spirulina, which we also just added. Here’s a little
bit on each. We started carrying the Doctors For Nutrition brand of Greens First, which contains
stevia to improve patient compliance. Now I've found another brand of stevia-sweetened greens
from Integrative Therapeutics, Pure Harvest Greens Elderberry flavor that I believe is a superior
greens product it does not have a proprietary formula. I always avoid these "proprietary formulas
because you can't know exactly what is in the product!  I plan to slowly transition our sales of the
Greens First to the Integrative Therapeutics Brand.

Some patients don’t want a sweetened greens and hence I was inclined to look for an even better

greens product.  I have scoured the various greens and grass formulations and consulted with my
naturopathic colleagues across the country. (You cannot imagine how seriously I take these
decisions and how difficult it can be to find the perfect product that I feel 100% confident about!).  
I’ve settled on a brand of greens that is 100% organic or wildcrafted and does not have any
questionable additives or ingredients.  The new product is called “Vitamineral Green”. Here is a
tidbit I learned from another naturopath about these greens:

“Vitamineral Green by Healthforce is the best, most nutrient dense and more [sic] economical

green food on the market.  One thing you always want to look at with green foods is-do they
contain things like lecithin, rice bran, oat glucan, fibersol, etc.?  These may provide some
amount of benefit but not to the extent the other things do.  Their effects are easily attainable in
a decent healthy diet.  Basically, in my humble opinion, they are in there as fillers, so the
company doesn't need to put as much of the expensive stuff in there.  It's amazing.  Almost
everyone does this, so it is not a knock on any one company.  (check out Nanogreens- three of
the 4 most prevalent ingredients in it are lecithin, rice bran and oat glucan.  Together these total
6250 mg!  How much does the barley grass, spirulina and chlorella in there add up to?  
2500mg.)”

I think this says it all.  When I compare the ingredient list of the Greens First to the Vitamineral
Green, I see that the Proprietary Fiber Blend and the lecithin portion of the Greens First
ingredient list takes up nearly a third of the total milligrams listed, so I am confident the
Vitamineral Green has far more vitality in it-if you can live without the stevia. Since many only
use greens powders for smoothies, this isn't much of an issue.

The rest of the ingredient list is also impressive.  Be sure to check our website and note the

thought implemented into this product's formulation with ingredients from various parts of our
planet (land, ocean and lakes). I also like that this product is packaged in glass and not plastic. 
Help us make the sale of these new greens a success and give them a try.

If you are not a fan of green powders, consider our Prime Chlorella, known for it's chlorophyll
content, it is high in protein and especially good at soaking up environmental toxins, like dioxins
and heavy metals. Chewing a few tablets at the end of a meal can also reduce sweet cravings. 
Read more about Chlorella from whole foods guru, Paul Pitchford here.

Finally, we’ve also started carrying Spirulina from the same company, which Dr. Guéniot liked to

call “the beefsteak of the sea” since it is so high in protein. Because it was one of the first foods on
the planet (from a
phylogenetic perspective), spirulina is excellent for babies and infants added to
formula because
of the high mineral, protein and vitamin content.
