Vibrant Health Green Vibrance
Vibrant Health Green Vibrance
“Vibrance” can be described as the combined vitality of each cell in the body. Green Vibrance provides trace nutrients that help each cell function at peak efficiency. When we push each cell toward peak efficiency through diet and supplementation, the result may be increased energy and endurance, greater clarity of thought, more robust immunity, and a shift in all bodily functions toward the ideal.
Green Vibrance taken daily drives us toward these goals by improving some very basic and essential biological requirements and functions. It boosts…
1.) Nutrition, by supplying an abundance of healthful micro-nutrients (vitamins, minerals, and bioactive food substances).
2.) Digestion of food and absorption of nutrients.
3.) Circulation, to enhance nutrient delivery to all cells of the body, even those at the periphery of the capillaries’ reach.
Optimal health can be experienced as a strong immune system, sustained energy production, and body systems that run smoothly and cleanly.
A nutritional formula should have a well-defined purpose in order to deliver true value to the consumer, and delivering true value is the goal of Vibrant Health. Its’ components should be present at potencies that will achieve the stated goal. Delivering true value is the goal of Vibrant Health.
The Green Vibrance formula grows from the concepts that:
1.The modern diet fails to supply enough micronutrients to support optimal health
2.Paleolithic biochemistry runs us, hasn’t changed in 40,000 years and expects to be fed high nutrient density from each calorie of food ingested
3.The body can heal itself if given proper nutritional support
Designed as a concentrated, nutrient-dense food from vegetable sources that is meant to:
- Support a healthy digestive tract, thereby improving nutrient absorption;
- Deliver trace nutrients at Paleolithic concentrations (far higher than found in modern diets);
- Improve circulation and cardiovascular health in order to deliver those nutrients to every cell of the body;*
- Support a vigorous and efficient immune system;
- Directly or indirectly support the other body systems (i.e. musculoskeletal, neurological, integumentary (skin), respiratory, urinary, endocrine, cardiovascular/circulatory, digestive, reproductive and immune)
Nutrient density refers to the ratio of micro- nutrients (i.e. vitamins, minerals, polyphenols, etc.) to macro-nutients (i.e. vitamins, minerals, polyphenols, etc.). Our ancestors commonly received far greater amounts of micro- nutrients in every mouthful of protein, fat and carbohydrate they consumed than we receive in the foods we eat today. Human biochemistry adapted to that ancient food supply with its greater nutrient density. It is that same, ancient biochemistry that attempts to run us today.
But today something is missing. Indeed, statistics compiled by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, World Health Organization (WHO) and regulatory agencies in countries around the globe, verify a precipitous drop in nutrient density within our common food supply in just the last fifty years. The loss of trace nutrients is so great as to remove any argument that dietary supplementation may be optional. We firmly believe supplementation is mandatory in order to achieve optimal health.
Green food supplements, if properly formulated, can provide astounding nutrient density. They can, in effect, return our dietary intake of micro- nutrients to something more closely approximating the richness of our ancestral, Paleolithic diet.
Nutrients in their natural state are highly bioavailable. This formula delivers a multitude of nutrients that can be used by each cell to support efficient cellular metabolism, and maintain health.
The many ingredients were put together with care, in order to maximize the amount of and synergism among nutrients. The result delivers healthful nutritional support to the 11 body systems. Enjoy:

The ingredients in Green Vibrance were selected to support essential bodily functions without which life cannot be sustained. Certified organic cereal grass powders and juices deliver virtually all known nutrients and several uncharacterized co-nutrients of great value. For example, cereal grasses contain a hidden “growth factor” that causes young animals to more rapidly develop, growing larger, stronger, and healthier with robust immune systems. Those same cereal grasses allow mature animals (and undoubtedly humans) to repair bodily tissues more quickly. Organic kale sprouts, organic broccoli sprouts, organic spirulina, chlorella, organic beet juice, organic parsley, organic spinach, organic carrot, green bean, zucchini, and Ascophyllum nodosum (Rockweed) seaweed enrich the nutrient density and diversity as the primary food ingredients.
Probiotics & Enzymes
Our industry leading, dose of 25 billion friendly probiotics from 12 strains in each serving of Green Vibrance bolsters the one system that must function well first and foremost above all others if health is to be improved or optimized. One must be able to digest food and transport nutrients into the body from the gastrointestinal tract before health can be sustained. The 12 strains of probiotics in this formula help assure a healthy G.I. tract by supporting colonies of robust intestinal flora throughout the intestinal tract. The strains in this formula help break down proteins for easy assimilation, help transport minerals and B-vitamins across the intestinal mucosa, synthesize several B-vitamins, help maintain healthy cholesterol, and create an unfriendly (acidic) environment for unfriendly bacteria and yeast (Candida). They support tissue growth and repair in the gut by converting dietary fiber to organic acids (e.g. propionic acid, acetic acid, butyric acid) that feed cells of the intestinal lining. Natural antibiotic substances made by some of the probiotics can reduce the number of unhealthful microbes in the gut.* Their action is supported by fructo-oligosaccharides, certified organic acacia gum fiber and FiberAid. Each of these prebiotics plays a role in reducing the number of “bad” bacteria and their colonies by feeding and boosting the number of beneficial bacteria.*
Most strains used in this formula are derived from the human gastrointestinal tract, and then cultivated in a contaminant free production laboratory. One is from a plant source (L. plantarum), and four others were isolated from cows milk and cheese (L. helveticus, L. lactis, S. thermophilus, & P. shermanii). The friendly intestinal bacteria we today consider as “human” strains originally came from the soil and water in the ancient environment, inoculating the human digestive tract and entering into a symbiotic relationship with us many millennia ago. Indeed, each person on Earth harbors different ratios ad strains of probiotic bacteria – and quite often a few different strains – in his or her intestines. Differences reflect the parental lineage and home environment of each of us. We all “picked up” various strains at various times from mother’s milk, and from dirty hands or toys we may have put in our mouths during outside play. Even an apple picked up off the ground, lightly buffed on a shirt, and then eaten can deliver a specific strain or two of probiotic (and possibly pathogenic) bacteria to the gut.
Whole foods contain enzymes in their natural state that can help dismantle food to release nutrients when eaten. We can expect to find some of these enzymes in Green Vibrance. Yet even though it is made up of gently processed, certified organic and natural foods, we recognize that some of the natural enzyme content has been lost simply by changing fresh, whole foods into powders. We have, therefore, added a generous quantity of plant and fungal enzymes as a corrective measure to restore enzymes lost during processing of the plant materials that make up this formula and to assure that the concentrated nutrition in the product is efficiently absorbed.
This is especially important because our less active lifestyles today result in a calorie intake that is lower than that of our Paleolithic ancestors. Our calories also carry fewer micronutrients than theirs did in the past. As a consequence, we run the risk of failing to take in enough micronutrition to support optimum health. The extra enzymes supplied in this formula will aid digestion and increase the amount of nutrients absorbed, helping compensate for our commonly persistently less nutritious diets of today.
Chlorophyll from green foods further supports the action of probiotics. Apple fiber from our certified organic whole apple powder plus soluble fibers from acacia as well as sunflower lecithin help support elimination of heavy metals, cholesterol and toxins from the intestinal tract before they can be absorbed. To a lesser degree, soluble fibers can perform similar tasks in the circulating blood itself.
Cell membranes are made up primarily of a double layer of phospholipids (i.e. phosphorus containing fats.) Lecithin is 97 to 98% phospholipids, the remaining percentages being water and mineral ash. Lecithin, therefore, supplies major structural components to every cell membrane in the human body. You can’t keep your cells together or functioning without them.
Dr. Richard Wurtman, at M.I.T. demonstrated how just 35 mg. of phosphatidyl choline each day could improve intelligence and cognitive function. The 700 mg of sunflower lecithin in one serving of this formula delivers approximately 160 milligrams of phosphatidyl choline, 4.6 times the dosage Wurtman found to improve cognition. The great depth of research on lecithin shows how it is not only critical to brain function, but also helps maintain the myelin sheath protecting and insulating nerves. Lecithin additionally mobilizes cholesterol for use in hormone synthesis and for removal from the body.
The functions of lecithin are basic, foundational functions critical to human survival. It is difficult to build a house of good health on a flawed foundation where nerves misfire, circulation is inadequate, and cell membranes are stiff and crippled in their ability to function because phospholipids were undersupplied.
Over eons of time, the liver became quite adept at denaturing, destroying and getting rid of unnecessary substances in everyday foods. Keep in mind that 40% of a carrot is unneeded, toxic material. Your liver has no trouble handling that. But when it comes to detoxifying some of the modern chemicals which are absorbed by, and circulate through, your body, we believe the liver needs a little help. That is why we’ve included liver support ingredients in this formula
Oxidation, Incineration, Quenching
Human metabolism is built on oxidation, which both keeps us alive and slowly pushes us toward the grave. The quietly cumulative damage to cells caused through necessary cellular oxidation is recognized as the degenerative changes of aging. Oxidative damage to cells defines aging and is involved, too, in the progression of every known degenerative disease such as cardiovascular disease, arthritis, diabetes and others. Certainly one’s personal genetic code and lifestyle also contribute.
Aging and degenerative disease are ubiquitous — we all will encounter them in time. Nutritive antioxidants may diminish the severity and slow the speed of aging.* Each serving of Green Vibrance delivers a powerful 1,893 mg of herbal antioxidants in addition to the beta-carotene, vitamin C, vitamin E and other antioxidants naturally present in the plant components of the formula. These antioxidants, plus lecithin, soluble fibers, policosanol and other ingredients help support cardiovascular health.* A strong heart and clear arteries are essential to delivering nutrients to and removing waste from every cell in the body. In fact, Ginkgo biloba extract, grape seed extract, green tea extract pomegranate extract, and grape skin extract are all known to improve peripheral circulation.
The immune support delivered by Green Vibrance is found in its content of the beta-glucans, ResistAid arabinogalactans, and Astragalus extract.* But let us not lose sight of the immune enhancing effect of a healthy digestive tract. 50% or more of your own immune cells are found there. Additionally, well nourished, vibrant cells, amply protected by the army of antioxidants are themselves resistant to disease.*
Green Vibrance has always supported good skeletal health, undoubtedly due to its alkalinizing nature, bioavailable boron and plant calcium. Cissus quadrangularis extract supports osteoblastic (bone building) activity while inhibiting osteoclastic (bone destroying) activity. The 1,000 i.u. of vitamin D in the formula further support bone health (and immunity). The special vitamin D in this formula is truly vegan D3 isolated from lichen oil. It is only commercially available plant derived vitamin D3.
