Green Foods
Description:
Powdered Vegetable Juice Dietary Supplement Containing Active Enzymes, Antioxidants,
Vitamins, Minerals, Amino Acids, Protein, and Chlorophyll.
Veggie Magma™ combines 16 nutritious vegetables with barley grass juice to create a nutrient-
rich vegetable juice powder containing antioxidants, active enzymes, vitamins, minerals, amino
acids, and chlorophyll and many other important phytonutrients.
Benefits of Veggie Magma:
"Veggie Magma" offers nutritional support for enhanced digestion, antioxidant protection against
free radicals, and the gentle detoxifying effects of chlorophyll and other "green" nutrients.
Ingredients:
Powdered juice from organically-grown young Barley Grass*, Maltodextrin (a complex
carbohydrate), Alfalfa juice, Carrot juice, Tomato juice, Celery juice, Dried Spinach, Cilantro
Juice, Broccoli Juice, Broccoli Sprout Juice, Dried Green Pepper, Cucumber juice, Dried Kale,
Red Beet juice, Shiitake extract, Ginger root extract, Dried Garlic, Aloe Vera. Contains no added
sugar, salt, colorings or fillers and free of animal products, gluten, soy, wheat, and yeast.
Suggested Use:
Dissolve two teaspoons into an 8 oz. glass of water or your favorite juice. Do not mix with hot
liquids since heat will neutralize active enzymes. Recommended once or twice daily on an empty
stomach (20 minutes before a meal) or 2 hours following a meal. Keep tightly closed after
opening and store in a cool, dry place.

The following are brief descriptions of Veggie Magma's ingredients:
Alfalfa: Nutrient rich vitamins A D, E, and K, phosphorous, iron, potassium, magnesium and
calcium. Also rich in trace minerals and its alkalinity helps the body assimilate proteins. It contains
a group of compound known as saponins which lower blood levels of cholesterol by combining
with fats in the digestive tract, thereby allowing the body to excrete them.
Aloe Vera contains calcium, potassium, sodium, manganese, iron, zinc, and lecithin. Aloe Vera
also has twenty of twenty-two amino acids, including ten essential amino acids.
Barley Grass is alkaline and abundant in vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and active enzymes. Its
deep green color is due to its large amount of natural chlorophyll, a well-known cleanser and
deodorizer. Superoxide dismutase, an enzyme important in neutralizing free radicals in our cells,
is found in large amounts in barley grass. Barley grass is also rich in potassium, calcium and
magnesium and, by weight, it has more vitamin C than oranges and more iron than spinach.
Broccoli contains sulforaphane, which may have antimutagenic properties. Broccoli is also a rich
source of carotenoids, vitamin C, and folate.
Broccoli Sprouts have recently been found by scientists at Johns Hopkins University to contain
30-50 times more sulforaphane than mature broccoli. Sulforaphane belongs to a class of
phytochemicals known as isothiocyanates, which are known to strongly stimulate the body's
natural detoxifying enzymes.
Carrots are one the best sources of alpha- and beta-carotene, two antioxidants that inhibit free
radical formation. These two carotenoids also are used by the body to produce vitamin A. Carrots
contain moderate amounts of glutathione, a compound that helps to recycle vitamin E and has
been shown to increase the body's production of white blood cells. Carrots are also known to
strengthen the eyes.
Celery is plentiful in vitamins A and C, calcium, folic acid, and potassium.
Garlic contains allylic sulfides which may possess antimutagenic properties, enhance immune
function and offer cardiovascular protection. Allylic sulfides have also been found to inhibit fungal
parasite growth, as well as reduce both cholesterol levels and blood platelet adhesion. Similar to
cruciferous vegetables, garlic stimulates liver detoxification enzymes and helps to counteract
microbial toxins.
Ginger Root stimulates digestion and acts as an antioxidant preventing lipid peroxidation.
Green Pepper contains vitamin C and has antimicrobial properties.
Kale, like broccoli, contains sulforaphane and other isothiocyanates. It also contains a rich variety
of nutrients and phytochemicals - four times as much beta-carotene as broccoli, more vitamin C
than oranges, the highest concentration of lutein (a carotenoid antioxidant), and high amounts of
antioxidant bioflavonoids, known to be important for cardiovascular health.
Maltodextrin is not a simple sugar but a complex carbohydrate that protects enzymes and other
phytonutrients in Veggie Magma from oxidation and degradation. It does not cause rapid changes
in blood sugar levels and is, therefore, safe for diabetics.
Red Beets are alkaline, contain high amounts of phosphorous and potassium, and stimulate
digestion.
Shiitake Mushroom contains the anti-mutagen polysaccharide, lentinin, and has a high
concentration of vitamin B complex, including vitamin B12 (a B vitamin that may be lacking in
vegetarian diets). Other compounds in Shiitake may help lower cholesterol.
Spinach is high in blood-building iron, chlorophyll, folic acid, and beta-carotene and has moderate
amounts of the antioxidant glutathione.
Tomatoes are a rich source of lycopene, an antioxidant caroteniod. Tomatoes also contain high
amounts of vitamin C, potassium, folic acid, beta-carotene, gamma-carotene, glutathione,
bioflavonoids and other phytonutrients important for good health.
