should take Heavenly Greens?
Heavenly Greens is designed for anyone
looking to incorporate a powerful green food supplement into
his or her daily diet. It’s our belief that everyone,
both young and old, should consume green foods. Heavenly Greens
is a living whole food concentrate and therefore offers more
complete nutritional complexes than other raw, whole foods.
Can pregnant/nursing women and
children use Heavenly Greens?
Although Heavenly Greens is a food product
that just about everyone can take, we recommend that all pregnant/nursing
women consult a doctor or health practitioner prior to use
to determine suitability. Children should take half the amount
recommended on the label, under the supervision of an adult.
Pregnant and nursing women, as well as parents should be aware
that slight detoxification effects (headache, lethargy, etc.)
could occur with some people in the very beginning of use.
If any of these symptoms persist for more than a week it’s
best to discontinue using Heavenly Greens.
How many times a day should I use Heavenly Greens?
Heavenly Greens works best when it’s
taken twice a day. First time users may not be able to handle
two servings a day and therefore should start with one serving
until they become acclimated to the product. Another effective
way to take Heavenly Greens is to mix it into a gallon of
water and continuously sip on it throughout the day.
What's the best time to take
We recommend that you take Heavenly Greens
first thing in the morning before breakfast and again later
in the day between lunch and dinner. First time users may
need to take it with a meal for the first week.
How much should I take?
The Heavenly Greens label specifies one
tablespoon one to two times daily. Start with only one tablespoon
once a day for the first week, and then gradually build up
to the specified label amount. If you want to take it twice
a day from the beginning, then use ½ tablespoon per
How long should I take Heavenly
Consider Heavenly Greens a beneficial
and necessary whole food to be taken as a regular part of
your daily diet. There is no reason to cycle its use for short
durations of time because the grasses in Heavenly Greens contain
valuable nutrients that are needed on a regular basis.
Are there any side effects associated
with Heavenly Greens?
First time users may experience slight
detoxification effects from using Heavenly Greens within the
first week or so, such as slight headaches, general fatigue,
more frequent bowel movements, and slight nausea. Green foods
are one of the most powerful detoxifiers in the world. They
go to work almost immediately and as they eliminate toxic
substances from the body some users notice slight side effects
in the very beginning. Don’t let these temporary side
effects alarm you. Almost everyone that begins taking wheat
grass, barley grass or a concentrated green food for the first
time experiences these symptoms. If they become over-bearing,
cut back on your dosage and make sure you take the product
with food. Side effects usually disappear after a few days.
Can I take higher amounts than
what the label recommends?
Yes. This should not be done until you
are fully acclimated to taking the recommended amount specified
on the label, which could take a few weeks or more.
What’s the benefit to taking
Heavenly Greens as opposed to just buying fresh juice from
a juice bar or juicing my own grass at home?
Although more and more juice bars are
springing up around North America that serve fresh wheat grass
juice, many people don’t live in big cities where these
places exist and those that do have access to a juice bar
sometimes find it an inconvenience to get there. It’s
very difficult to find a juice bar that offers all three grasses
that are used in Heavenly Greens. It’s our belief that
these three grasses in combination provide a synergy of nutrients
that is far superior to using just one grass alone. Growing
grass at home to make fresh juice is generally a very time
consuming, messy, and costly task. Many people who grow their
own grass at home have a hard time avoiding moss, fungus and
bacteria at the roots of the grass and a good machine that
juices grass can cost over $500. We grow Heavenly Greens according
to strict organic standards and ensure that the product is
free of all contamination, and that each serving is guaranteed
to be a precise blend of wheat, barley, and kamut grass. Certainly
it would be an ideal situation if you could consume all three
of these certified organic grasses as a fresh juice on a daily
basis. However, grass powders that are manufactured properly
like Heavenly Greens are an excellent alternative and very
little difference can be found in the nutritional benefits.
Does Heavenly Greens help regulate
Yes and there are several reasons for
this. For one, Heavenly Greens has a decent amount of fiber
and higher fiber in your diet helps to regulate the bowels.
The high enzyme content of the grasses assists in breaking
your food down more efficiently. When you’re digesting
and utilizing your food more efficiently your entire digestive
system functions better, including the bowels. Heavenly Greens
also helps to restore proper pH balance throughout the entire
digestive system. Proper pH balance in the intestinal system
is critical to digest and assimilate nutrients and to eliminate
waste. Most people that use concentrated green foods like
Heavenly Greens notice elimination improvements almost immediately.
How should Heavenly Greens be
The very best way to take Heavenly Greens
is with water. The taste can be a little over-bearing for
some people though, especially if they’ve never taken
a greens product before. In such cases one can substitute
apple juice, grape juice, carrot juice, or another non-acidic
vegetable juice or blend of vegetable juices you find compatible.
We do not recommend that you add Heavenly Greens to acidic
juices such as orange juice, grapefruit juice or pineapple
juice because they can hinder the alkalizing effects of the
How does Heavenly Greens help
There are three significant elements
present in high amounts in the grasses used in Heavenly Greens
that play a synergistic role in keeping your pH levels properly
balanced. They are: Chlorophyll, Enzymes, and Minerals (including
rare trace minerals and the major alkalizing minerals calcium,
magnesium, and potassium).
1.) Chlorophyll is almost identical to hemoglobin and therefore
helps build the blood and oxygenate the body’s cells.
One of the first things excess acid does is lower your oxygen
levels by blocking the cell’s oxygen receptors and shutting
down cellular respiration. The most powerful and effective
acid neutralizer is oxygen and next to breathing, the best
way to increase your oxygen levels is by consuming foods abundant
2.) Enzymes are responsible for every
chemical reaction that occurs in the body including those
that regulate pH. They’re also required to break down
food so that nutrients become immediately bioavailable at
the cellular level. Without the right nutrition at the cellular
level the cells cannot survive in a healthy state and maintain
pH nor can they replicate properly. Most foods and beverages
people consume today are acidic and completely devoid of nutrients
and enzymes. Without a reserve of plant-based enzymes the
chemical processes that regulate pH will not function at peak
performance. Running your body with an enzyme deficit is analogous
to running an engine without the right grade of gasoline or
the right spark plugs. Green foods (specifically the grasses)
are one of the best sources of enzymes in the world.
3.) Mineral deficiencies are one of the
biggest culprits in pH imbalances. Most foods and beverages
today are highly acidic and completely devoid of vital minerals,
which spells double trouble. If your diet doesn’t contain
adequate living minerals, your body will pull alkalizing minerals
(i.e. calcium, potassium, and magnesium) from your bones and
tissues in order to neutralize the damaging effects of acid.
When you remove acidic foods from your diet and start using
foods like Heavenly Greens that contain bioavailable minerals
your body will stop attacking itself and over time can return
to a state of homeostasis.
How quickly will I notice my
pH levels changing once I begin using Heavenly Greens?
Most users can expect to see an improvement
in their pH levels in just a few days if they test their saliva
with pH litmus paper. It’s very important that you stop
poisoning your body with too much acid if you’re truly
serious about balancing your pH. If you continue to load up
on soda, coffee, sugar, alcohol, and highly processed foods
Heavenly Greens will serve only as a temporary Band-Aid. If
you make dietary changes that are life giving and highly alkalizing
to the body, you will experience tremendous improvements in
the way you feel and look.
What’s the shelf life of
Heavenly Greens is guaranteed for a minimum
of three years from the packaging date provided it is stored
in a cool, dry environment away from direct sunlight. All
the labels are clearly marked with an expiration dat
Can Heavenly Greens be taken
Some medications specify that you should
avoid certain foods while using them. Although it’s
very unlikely that any of them would recommend that you avoid
green foods, if you’re taking any medication we strongly
recommend that you review the literature that accompanies
the drug(s) and if necessary, also consult your doctor.
Where are the grasses grown in
All three grasses are grown on mineral
rich virgin soil at altitudes above 3,000 feet in fertile
Southwestern valleys. One of the primary States where they’re
grown is Utah although they’re also grown on organic
farmlands in Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, and California,
especially during winter months. The crops are always watered
using fresh natural minerals springs from under the land on
which they are grown - we never use artificial water sources.
What does the blend consist of
in Heavenly Greens?
Heavenly Greens is a blend of 33.33%
kamut, wheat and barley grass. Each of these grasses is represented
as 80% whole leaf powder and 20% juice extract.
How are the grasses processed
in Heavenly Greens?
The whole leaf powder and the juice extract
are almost identically processed. The grasses are organically
grown to a height of 10-14 inches. Once harvested, they are
washed in ozonated water to remove any surface particles and
then crushed using a screw press mechanism. The whole leaf
powder is made from the extracted pulp that is chilled to
60 º F and then transported by vacuum to dehydration
chambers. Drying is done within minutes in an 88º F vacuum
chamber to preserve enzyme activity. To make the juice extract
the fibers are screened out of the pulp after crushing and
then sent to dehydration chambers, forming a 100% pure juice
extract. Once dried the powder can then be put into a blend
Will Heavenly Greens help me
Many users notice that Heavenly Greens
helps curb their appetite therefore assisting a weight loss
regimen. An improper diet deficient in vital nutrition causes
the body to crave more food since its nutritional needs are
not being met. Heavenly Greens supplies your body with an
abundance of nutrients it desperately needs. Once your cellular
nutritional needs are satisfied, your body craves less food
and your metabolism has a chance to return to normal.
Why doesn’t Heavenly Greens
contain any chlorella or spirulina?
Chlorella and spirulina are algae harvested
from the sea. It’s our belief that man’s best
source of nutrition comes from the land not the sea though
in recent years there has been much debate on algae based
products in the health food industry. Wheat and barley happen
to be the two most important grains frequently mentioned in
the Bible, while no references are found on spirulina or chlorella.
In fact, God bases two important feast days around the growing
and harvesting of wheat and barley. From a health standpoint,
spirulina and chlorella require an acid medium (water) to
grow whereas grasses require a slightly alkaline medium (soil).
We feel this is an important factor in trying to alkalize
the body. Some notable health experts on the subject of pH
such as Dr. Robert O. Young, author of the book The pH Miracle,
do not promote the use of spirulina and chlorella. Despite
Young’s scientific assessments, there are other reputable
health authorities that dispute his claims and there is some
valid research to support the health benefits of both spirulina
and chlorella provided they are grown and processed properly,
which is not an easy task. There are very few certified organic
versions of spirulina and chlorella on the market. We’ve
chosen to keep Heavenly Greens free of these ingredients because
we want to offer a product that is 100% certified organic
based solely on grasses that have a long, successful track
record of improving people’s health.
Will Heavenly Greens give me
Most users of Heavenly Greens experience
a dramatic improvement in their overall energy levels within
the first week. The high chlorophyll content helps oxygenate
the body and improves overall energy levels. The 100 plus
nutrients in Heavenly Greens are also immediately bioavailable
at the cellular level and fuel your cells with life. You’ll
be amazed at the balanced energy your body has once you replace
artificial stimulants like coffee with proper nutrition.
Can people allergic to gluten
use Heavenly Greens?
Wheat and barley are high sources of
gluten only when the grain has reached full maturity. During
the early growth stage while they are still grasses there
is no gluten present and therefore they should not cause any
problems for those who are gluten intolerant. But, because
there is always a slight chance of more mature plant material
entering the harvest, those who are severely intolerant to
gluten may want to avoid using Heavenly Greens. When in doubt,
it is best to use personal judgment or consult your health
How does Heavenly Greens differ
from other greens products?
One of the big differences with
Heavenly Greens compared to other greens products is that
it’s 100% certified organic. We also don’t dilute
Heavenly Greens with fillers, binders, or other inexpensive
ingredients to make the label look impressive. Some of the
more popular greens products on the market contain maltodextrin
(corn syrup), rice excipients or other binding agents. If
you see maltodextrin or any other binding agent on a greens
label you’re more than likely wasting your money. Many
health conscious consumers know the important health benefits
of wheat and barley grass and want a product that contains
only these grasses. Heavenly Greens is one of few products
on the market that contains solely beneficial grasses, is
organically grown, minimally processed, contains no binders
or fillers, and dollar for dollar is more cost effective.
Don’t settle for inferior greens that can’t compare.
