It contains a combination of 4 essential ingredient groups:Greens and Reds: The core greens mixture includes vegetable extractsfrom broccoli, spinach, kale and parsley. Spirulina and chlorella are added for their magnesium-rich chlorophyll content and many cardiovascular benefits. The red blend is a mix of berries such as blueberry, tart cherry and cranberry that provide proanthocyanidins, the powerful antioxidants with beneficial effects on mood, cognition and cardiovascular function.
Adaptogens: Various herbs have been included for their ability to positively affect stress, cortisol and the HPA-axis, modulate the immune system and reduce inflammation. Greens Matrix contains some of the most well-researched adaptogenic herbs, including rhodiola rosea, ashwagandha, astragalus and Siberian ginseng. Mushrooms: Known for their powerful immunomodulating effects, mushrooms have long been consumed as nutritive compounds chock-full of vitamin and minerals. Current research supports many of these ancient uses for specific mushroom species.
