100% Lecithin-Free: (A common allergen & industrial emulsifier): Why pay for non-green, cheap filler Lecithin as the #1 Ingredient in leading “greens” supplements? CYTOGREENS has ZERO Lecithin! As much as 25% of top “greens” formulas contain this filler.
High-Density, Chlorophyll-Rich Nutrients: The math is simple, CYTOGREENS has as much as DOUBLE or more of the Dark Green chlorophyll-rich nutrients as top “greens” supplements, so what are you paying for with other products, celery & soy?
Filler-Free: Ultra-Concentrated means you are getting Chlorophyll-Rich Green Superfoods like Spirulina, Cracked-Cell Chlorella and Ultra-Fine Premium Matcha Green Tea — No Fillers, No Colors, 100% Natural Flavor, 100% Natural Sweetener.
Ultra-Potent ORAC-Listed Anti-Oxidants: CYTOGREENS has 346 mg of Standardized, Free-Radical Nutralizing, High-ORAC Anti-Oxidants (1.4 g if you count our Matcha Green Tea) — look at most “greens” on the market, you won’t find any ORAC rating, or even a standardization.
Ingredient Amounts that Matter: Many so called “green” supplements supply dozens and dozens of ingredients at dosages that are so small, it’s a wonder they are there at all, 5 mg here, 10 mg there — truly miniscule amounts.
True Bio-Availability: CYTOGREENS has Cytozymes, a custom 9 enzyme high-potency blend that has as much as 40 times the enzyme activity of leading “greens” products. Cytozymes helps break down the raw, whole-food ingredients to help release nutrients for optimal digestion and bioavailability.
Key ingredients are backed by rigorous scientific studies to Improve Stamina and Endurance.
In creating CYTOGREENS™, we focused on highly concentrated, truly green, nutrient rich raw-sourced foods in amounts suitable for athletes who demand more from their bodies.
With Patented ARX® Athletic Recovery X-Celerator – backed by two human clinical studies.
Proven to improve Endurance and Recovery. Included at 500 mg Serving.
CHLOROPHYLL: THE DETOXIFICATION “HEAVY LIFTER”
Systemic Detoxification – Over-burdened organs, digestion and immune systems cannot function optimally if they are over burdened by environmental stressors (toxins). Raw Chorophyll is the basis for all green plants to convert sunlight to energy. This is also the core driver of the truly GREEN ingredients that make up 84.6% of the CYTOGREENS formula! Aside from the extremely broad variety of benefits that chlorophyll provides; It is the raw, whole food based chlorophyll in CYTOGREENS that is the “Heavy Lifter” for systemic detoxification.
In fact some of the ingredients in CYTOGREENS are successfully used in cases of acute toxicity in patients who have been poisoned by heavy metals exposure. Just imagine what they will do for you. Chlorophyll literally binds to highly damaging toxins (such as mercury, lead and arsenic that can build up over time) and shuttles them out of your body.
Highly effective and optimally dosed organic-source Milk Thistle (80% Extract) has a long track record of effective liver detoxification. While other so-called “greens” give you an ineffective dosage of 15 mg, 25 mg maybe 50 mg – CYTOGREENS understands the value of these ingredients and has included a full 200 mg in every serving.
1 SERVING OF CYTOGREENS HAS 21x THE CHLOROPHYLL AS A FULL SERVING OF DARK LEAFY GREENS!
pH Balancing (De-Acidification / Alkalyzation) – With a diet high in protein-rich meat consumption and a broad range of other acidifying dietary consumables, the western diet has left most, especially athletes more acidic than they should be optimally. This pressures your whole system to consistently buffer that acidity. The whole, raw-source greens within CYTOGREENS is ideal for creating a more alkaline system. The benefit to you as an athlete is that you can more effectively consume, absorb and retain nitrogen from protein consumption. This is a major advantage for both building and maintaining lean muscle tissue.
Blood Building – The oxygen carrying capacity of blood is of the utmost importance to any athlete! Ultra-Concentrated CYTOGREENS has over 40 times the chlorophyll of a serving of dark green broccoli in just one serving! Aside from having a near identical chemical composition as hemoglobin in blood, Chlorophyll stimulates the production of red blood cells. Building your blood increases your vitality, energy levels and your bloods ability to both supply oxygen and carry waste CO2 away. i
CYTOGREENS HAS TWICE THE CHLOROPHYLL-RICH DARK GREEN NUTRIENTS OF LEADING “GREENS” PRODUCTS
Ultra-Potent Antioxidant Power – Athletes consume large amounts of oxygen during training. While of course absolutely necessary, it does create a large amount of oxidative damage caused by Free Radicals. The minimum daily recommended dose of anti-oxidants lies between the ORAC values 3,000 and 5,000. CYTOGREENS does not subscribe to the theory of “kitchen-sink formulation” – meaning randomly throwing in every known powder at truly miniscule amounts that provide little more than what is known in the industry as “label dressing”.
CYTOGREENS PROVIDES FEWER INGREDIENTS AT LARGER AMOUNTS THAT PROVIDE REAL BENEFIT.
Our Spirulina alone has a massive ORAC value of 24,400 µmolTE/100g (4x higher than blueberries) – included at over 1,000 mg per serving, that is a truly huge anti-oxidant powerhouse suitable for any athlete. In addition, we have included a very rare and completely organic superfruit known as Amla (Indian Gooseberry), long prized by Ayurvedic medicine for centuries for a broad range of healing applications – more importantly for athletes it has an ORAC value of 437,900 µmolTE/100g.
In addition, we have included Acai berry extract with a ORAC value of 102,000 µmolTE/100g along with essential nutrient antioxidants, the richest sources of naturally occurring Vitamin C Acerola extract. Supercharging our formula even more, our powerhouse Matcha Ultra-Fine Green Tea Powder has a sky-high ORAC of 134,800 µmolTE/100g and with 1,014 mg per serving. With CYTOGREENS you are truly getting your daily dose of dark green pigment anti-oxidants! ii
GRAM FOR GRAM CYTOGREENS HAS 22x THE ANTI-OXIDANT POWER AS BLUEBERRIES!
Non-“Green” Fats Don’t Belong In Your Greens – Many so-called green formulas have the number one ingredient as Lecithin. Lecithin is an emulsifier, a fat most often used in food processing, or as a “filler” to take up more room in a given product. Defined by the online encyclopedia Wikipedia as “Lecithin is a generic term to designate any group of yellow-brownish fatty substances occurring in animal and plant tissues, and in egg yolk…” and it goes on to say “In the food industry it has multiple uses: In confectionery it reduces viscosity, replaces more expensive ingredients, controls sugar crystallization and the flow properties of chocolate, helps in the homogeneous mixing of ingredients, improves shelf life for some products, and can be used as a coating.” It is so common in regular foods that it is far from an ingredient that needs to be in a Greens formula. With CYTOGREENS we have focused only on the concentrated core ingredients that provide benefits and results.
Immune System Support
Aloe Vera (Aloe Barbadensis Miller) has long been known as potent wound healer, cleansative agent and systemic tonic. NutraForme has gone deeper into cutting edge research to bring hard training athletes immune system support like none other. Daltonmax® 200 is a times potency Aloe Vera Concentrate that is completely unique in the world of nutrition; an organic ingredient that uses the Aloe gel within the Aloe plant exclusively.
Unlike many other Aloe products, Daltonmax® Aloe is never heat, enzyme or carbon treated and as result maintains all of its bioavailabilty. Where Daltonmax® really shines is in its large molecular size. 75% of Daltonmax® ranges between 200,000 Daltons and 1,000,000 Daltons as tested by HPLC lab research! Regular Aloe is only 25% by comparison. Large molecular weight Aloe activate the body’s immune defense system (White Blood Cell Macrophages) that are responsible for both identifying, attacking and destroying foreign invaders!
From an athlete’s standpoint, effective immune function is critical, but even more interesting is the essential role the body’s immune system in muscle regeneration and muscle recovery from intense physical activity! Immune system white blood cells literally repair damaged muscle tissue.iii,iv,v,vi,vii This multi-stage process is essential in becoming stronger, faster and bigger through repetitive training.
