We received an enthusiastic email from a new fan of Green Foods, Vincenzo, who discovered our products recently.  For a company that has been in business over 30 years, we are fortunate to have loyal, long-time customers as well as new ones who are happy to have discovered us.  We asked him if we could share his email on our blog and he was happy to — thanks, Vincenzo!

And if any of you would like to share your stories like he did, please do!  You will be rewarded with a gift and our sincerest appreciation!  Send them to: tessa@greenfoods.com or post it to our comment section below.

Vincenzo’s letter:

My partner and I started using Green Foods two months ago and we are feeling great!  We started by taking Green Magma every morning, mixed with water and almost immediately our mood and energy was improved.  I no longer find my energy level  “crashing” in mid-morning and I’ve even been able to cut back on my coffee intake, as I no longer need it as much to wake up! Although my partner prefers the original Green Magma, lately I’ve switched to the Magma Plus, which has an extra touch of sweetness from all natural Stevia and so appeals to my sweet tooth while providing all the same benefits and more.  We’ve also started adding Chia seeds to salads and other foods and we really like the taste and texture they provide, not to mention all the added fiber, protein and fatty acids.

I do a lot of weight lifting and cardio daily at the gym and have been using protein shakes for years, but none of the products I’ve used before compare with True Vitality shakes! Not only do they give me an excellent source of protein, but all the additional vitamins, minerals and Omega 3s really contribute to excellent post-workout recovery.  All the protein shakes I’d used before, based on whey powder, always left a bad taste in my mouth and bad breath afterwards – not so with True Vitality!  The plant based protein leaves my mouth feeling and tasting clean and fresh. And that’s how Green Foods leaves you feeling too – healthy and fresh inside and out!  Thanks, Green Foods!

This is a great opportunity for us to express our gratitude to all of you – both new and old fans – who purchase our products online or from a national store like Whole Foods or The Vitamin Shoppe, or your local natural foods store like MOM’s Organic Market in Washington D.C. or Rainbow Grocery Co-op in San Francisco.  Every day we are very grateful you experience wonderful benefits from the work we do to create high-quality products to promote well-being on the planet.

We always look forward to hearing from you.  Keep shining!

Green Magma Princess

Green Foods Family Style!

We had a great time at the Green Festival, S.F. this past weekend turning many people of all ages on to the magma-tizing powers of our Green Magma and Magma Plus barley grass juice.  Some responses we received:  “This doesn’t taste anything like wheatgrass – it’s much more mild and easier to drink,” and “It looks so green and alive!”

A refreshing oasis at the busy show

Barley grass juice is most certainly a vibrant green color and incredibly abundant with so many nutrients:

  • Essential and non-essential amino acids
  • High amounts of enzymes like superoxide dismutase (SOD)
  • Folic acid
  • Antioxidants
  • Caretenoids including beta carotene
  • Pantothenic acid
  • Flavonoids
  • Vitamins: B2, B6, B1, B12, C, K
  • Calcium
  • Iron
  • Manganese
  • Potassium
  • Phosphorus
  • Magnesium
  • Chlorophyll
 “[Barley Grass is] one of the most incredible products of this decade. It improves stamina, sexual energy, clarity of thought, and reduces addiction to things that are bad for you. It also improves the texture of the skin and heals the dryness associated with aging.”   - Dr. Howard Lutz, Director of the Institute of Preventive Medicine, Washington D.C.

Dr. Yoshihide Hagiwara, founder of Green Foods, discovered over 40 years ago that young barley grass is the most nutritionally balanced food in nature.  He discovered that the most nutritious part of the plant resides in its young green blades of grass and developed a spray-dry method to capture and protect the abundant nutrients and enzymes in freshly harvested young grass.  It is through this method that Green Magma was born and is available for the benefit of all.

So, what are some the benefits of barley grass juice?

1.      Enhanced metabolism:  Dr. Kubota at the Science University of Tokyo found that barley grass juice reduces serum cholesterol in rats fed a high-cholesterol diet.  And mice fed barley grass juice were 150% more active than mice fed a control diet.

2.      Cellular regeneration/Anti-inflammatory:  Dr. Perricone has conducted studies with Green Magma that show significant cellular repair and rejuvenation amongst his clients which is directly related to barley grass’ anti-aging properties in fighting free radical activity, reducing inflammation, and supporting healthy blood flow.

3.      Stimulates weight loss:  Many people report that supplementation of Green Magma stimulates weight loss as well as crucial nutritional support during a cleanse or diet.

4.     Improves digestion and promotes regularity:  Barley grass helps combat ulcerative colitis by lowering the amount of inflammatory chemicals in the by balancing the water content of the bowel content. Studies also show that barley grass increases the amount of friendly bacteria in bowels.

5.     Strengthens the immune systemPhytonutrients and flavinoids are necessary for maintaining optimal health and protecting the body from toxins in our environment.

Barley grass has also shown promising results in preliminary studies done on its ability to inhibit certain cancer cell growths.  We have received testimonies over the years from cancer patients who have been supported tremendously by consuming Green Magma and changing their lifestyles.  One of our Green Foods Facebook fans posted:

“Green Magma is amazing! My brother has cancer and is going through intense chemo right now and this is the ONLY thing that makes him feel better and gives him energy. Thank you.” - Brittany Vasseur

As you can see, there are so many benefits to including barley grass juice to ones diet!  We receive a number of testimonials as to how it improves mental clarity, hair, skin and nails, and the #1 benefit we hear is increased energy levels.  Many of our fans have ditched their addiction to coffee and prefer to make a morning and mid-afternoon green shake instead.
