WHY EAT VEGETABLES?

We all know the age old saying of "Eat Your Vegetables, They're Good for You!" The Food and Drug Administration, National Cancer Institute and National Institutes of Health agree with this and tell us that over 30% of cancer and chronic type degenerative diseases can be prevented by adding adequate amounts of green foods in our diet.

Still, over 90% of us do not eat vegetables, fruit, grains or legumes in adequate amounts to meet our "Vegetable Quotient" of five to nine good servings of greens per day!

MEETING OUR "VEGETABLE QUOTIENT" OF FIVE SERVINGS PER DAY WOULD:

Help Reduce cancer risk

Help reduce menopausal discomfort

Help reduce Stroke risk

Help reduce, treat prostate problems

Help lower Cholesterol

Help reduce diabetes risk and severity

Help reduce breast,prostate, lung and colon cancer

Reduce fatigue

Reduce appetite

WHY SPROUTS?

In general, it has been shown that sprouts, such as those of broccoli, flax and others, are much richer in phyto-nutrient content than mature plants. For example, scientist at Johns Hopkins University (Proc. Nat. Acad. Sci.,Sept 1997) demonstrated that broccoli sprouts have 20-50 times more anti-cancer properties than mature broccoli plants.

Still, sprouts may not be too convenient for some of us to have. This is where SuperVeggies come in.

Super Veggies are encapsulated, organic, 100% pure vegetable sprouts…so they make it easy and convenient to take and meet our "Vegetable Quotient. For example taking just 2 SuperVeggies Broccoli capsules a day for a week is like eating over over 2 pounds of broccoli.

WHICH SPROUTS & WHY?

First, rather than nothing, any common sprout will be of benefit and help towards meeting our "Vegetable Quotient".Some of the best ones might be:

BROCCOLI SPROUTS- One mean green! Loaded with anti-cancer sulforaphane which destroys cancer causing chemicals. Also very rich in carotenoids that lower the risk of breast, colon and rectal cancer. And recently shown to help prevent ulcers and stomach cancer.

SELENIUM RICH BROCCOLI- A One-Two punch against prostate and breast cancer...Broccoli and Selenium!

Anyone that has read about prostate cancer has read about Selenium. Recent studies have shown that biologic selenium found in broccoli (Selenium-methyl-selocysteine) is much more effective against cancer than any other form of selenium. Much better than selenium salts or yeast derived selenium

It is this SeMSC form of selenium that our Selenium Rich Broccoli sprouts provide - at 30-50 times the amount found in most regular broccoli.

BROCCOLI PLUS BLEND This blend consists of 33% Broccoli, 20% Radish, 20% Cabbage 20% Mung Bean and 7% Alfalfa sprouts. The purpose of this blend is to provide a wide variety of sprouts for the broadest benefits.

FLAX SPROUTS- There is no one who will not benefit from flax seed sprouts. Oat meal? Good. But taking just 2 SuperVeggies 100% Flax Sprout capsules gives you more soluble fiber than three cups of oatmeal.

Further, flax is very high in cancer fighting lignans (50X better Broccoli) and its richness in Omega-3 fatty acid lowers LDL cholesterol levels, allergic reactions and clot formation in the body.

NUTRA/VISION with Lutein and Zeazanthin- These are the two major Xanthophyls found in the eye (in Macula) and which can help prevent and, possibly, stop or reverse, age related macular degeneration.

Phytonutrients which filter our high energy, ultra violet sun rays, are found in yellow/orange/dark green fruit and vegetables and are present in very high concentrations in the macula.

Lutein and zeaxanthin cannot be manufactured in the body and must be taken in from vegetables and fruit. Mesozeaxanthin is made in the body from lutein.

SOY BEANS- Eating as little as one oz. of Soy beans per day lowers cholesterol. Further, the genistin in soy beans seems to help fight breast cancer and to relieve symptoms of menopause. This is good enough for the FDA and the American Obstetrics and Gynecology Society to recommend it as a food to take for lowering cholesterol and fighting breast cancer.

In some recent studies at Harvard Medical School, Phenoxidiol, a component of soy beans has been modified and is currently being studied in humans as a potent anti-cancer agent.

GARLIC & ONIONS - Champion health greens … and SuperVeggies sprouts do not produce the odor of these members of the lily family. Garlic and Onion seem to protect against high cholesterol, stroke, fungal and bacterial infections and against various forms of cancer.

BERRIES- Blueberries, cranberries, bilberries etc. are loaded with anti-oxidant anthocyanins and luteins that protect against cancer, loss of night vision and loss of vision due to age related macular degeneration.

GRAINS - Oats, barley, wheat, millet are all very rich in fiber and phytonutrients that add to their benefit against cholesterol and cancer.

CLOVER- Red Clover sprouts, in addition to their high anti-oxidants, enzymes etc. are very rich in phyto-estrogens that help relieve post menopausal discomfort

TOMATOES- Tomatoes are rich in lycopene, and other carotenoids. Much research is being done on lycopene, especially on its effect on cancers. In laboratory and analytical studies it has been shown that lycopene helps fight Breast cancer, Cervical cancer, Colon cancer, Gastric cancer and Prostate cancer and cardiovascular disease. ===============================================================

PHYTOCHEMICALS AND OTHER HEALTH HELPERS IN GREEN FOODS

A diet rich in plant based foods such as Greens, Grains, Fruits and Nuts has been known and is being shown by studies to be beneficial - “Eat Your Vegetables, They’re Good For You!”

Hundreds of naturally occurring compounds found in plants, and beneficial to man, are called phytonutrients.

Included in this are carotenoids, celluloids, lignans, dithiones, flavenoids, indoles, carbinols, isothiocyanates, and others. Each type of vegetable and fruit has its own unique set of phytochemicals that offer protection against disease.

ANTIOXIDANTS - NUTRITIONAL WARRIORS

Antioxidants are especially important in protecting against diseases associated with free radical damage to our cell protein and DNA. Free radicals are produced by the body and are also taken in from the environment such as cigarette smoke, radiation and air pollutants … The damage caused by excess free radicals can lead to heart disease, cancer and other serious chronic diseases.

The phytonutrients in Super Veggies, plus Vitamin A, C, and E and minerals such as Selenium help prevent or minimize free radical damage .. in different ways and in different organs. This is why it is important to take a variety of vegetables and fruit with balanced, complete phytonutrient contents
