Vitaforce Ingredients

Organic Spirulina

The single most nutrient dense food on the planet. With 28 times more beta-carotene than carrots, 39 times more iron than spinach, and almost 3 times the antioxidants of blueberries.

Our Spirulina has the highest protein content of any natural food in the world, almost 70 percent protein. It also contains B complex vitamins, vitamin E, manganese, zinc, iron, selenium, gamma linolenic acid (an essential fatty acid), and a wide variety of carotenoids.

BENEFITS

Nutritionally supports antioxidant levels, vision, inflammatory response and immune function.

PURITY OF OUR SPIRULINA

Our Spirulina is the cleanest, purest, and most nutrient-dense Spirulina made anywhere in the world. It is manufactured in India, away from industrial, agricultural and human settlements – with a pristine water supply, and is free of pesticides, herbicides and chemical fertilizers, in controlled conditions, monitored to prevent contamination. Each batch of our Spirulina is 3rd party tested in Internationally Acclaimed Laboratories for purity and to ensure there are the lowest and safest levels of heavy metals, and no detectable levels of neurotoxins or microcystins.

DANGERS OF OTHER SPIRULINA

Many other companies use inexpensive Spirulina out of China and other places that do not have high quality standards. Even if it is labeled “organic,” it can still be a very low-quality Spirulina out of China, so don’t be fooled. When Spirulina is not grown in ideal conditions, it cannot develop the high levels of nutrients you would expect Spirulina to have, and can be contaminated with heavy metals, neurotoxins, and microcystins.

Chlorella

It is often thought of as the second most nutrient dense food on the planet – second only to Spirulina. It is particularly high in RNA/DNA which may play a role in your body’s ability to repair itself.

It is also the highest known food source of the plant’s life force – chlorophyll this superfood is rich with phytonutrients, including amino acids, chlorophyll, beta-carotene, potassium, phosphorous, biotin, magnesium and the B-complex vitamins.

BENEFITS

Nutritionally supports antioxidant levels, vision, inflammatory response and immune function.

PURITY OF OUR CHLORELLA

Chlorella soaks up everything from the environment, and therefore can become very easily contaminated with heavy metals and other environmental toxins. For those reasons, our premium chlorella is grown in indoor tanks in pharmaceutically safe conditions. Our chlorella has been tested and found to be totally free of microbes, contaminants and microcystins.

DANGERS OF OTHER CHLORELLA

Most other chlorella is grown outdoors and is thus contaminated by air pollution and weather. Much of this chlorella, including “organic” chlorella, is grown in China and is heavily polluted by microbes, bacterial contaminants, heavy metals, and even toxic microcystins, which can attack the liver and the brain. When chlorella is not grown in ideal conditions, it cannot develop the high levels of nutrients you would expect chlorella to have.

This exotic large berry from the Amazon Rainforest may be the world’s richest source of vitamin C. It can have as much as 60 times more vitamin C than oranges.

It is also rich in carotenoids like beta-carotene and zeaxanthin. Our wildcrafted, pesticide-free camu camu is rich in phytonutrients and antioxidants, and also contains manganese, magnesium, calcium, potassium and zinc.

Organic Purple Grape

Grapes are not just delicious, they are also loaded with antioxidants and polyphenols that powerfully support your health.

In particular, they are one of the main natural sources of resveratrol, which many studies suggest plays a significant role in longevity. Resveratrol seems to affect three genes that are all related to longevity, including the SirT1s. Grapes are not only loaded with antioxidants, but also with vitamin K, copper and vitamin B2.

Nutritionally supports immune function, antioxidant levels, a healthy inflammatory response, digestive health and lung health.

DANGERS OF OTHER PURPLE GRAPES

According to the USDA Pesticide Data Program and the Pesticide Action Network, cranberries on store shelves have been found to have 56 different pesticide residues, including 8 known or probable carcinogens, 17 suspected hormone disruptors, 10 neurotoxins, and 4 developmental or reproductive toxins. They can also be contaminated with heavy metals, like mercury and lead.

It is very important you eat only organic grapes. There is a list called the “Dirty Dozen” which itemizes the most heavily contaminated fruits and vegetables. Grapes are rated as number eight on this list – meaning they have very high levels of pesticide residue compared to most other commonly eaten fruits and vegetables. Make sure your grapes are organic, like the ones in Vitaforce.

Organic Pomegranate

This may be the most uniquely delicious fruit on the planet, but it also has true superfruit status as well. Pomegranates are loaded in powerful antioxidants called polyphenols.

These polyphenols have been studied for their ability to nutritionally support brain health, cardiovascular health and digestive health. Pomegranate juice has three times more antioxidants than red wine and green tea. Pomegranates are a good source of vitamins C, K and fiber.
