More About the Ingredients in Green Powder Superdrink (GPS)
Wheat grass is the first sprouted grassy leaves of wheat seeds. During the sprouting process (this is true of all sprouts), numerous enzymes and other nutrients are created that weren’t in the original seed. Wheat grass juice has about the same composition as human blood except that the iron and copper are reversed in percentage amounts. Since most people are deficient in copper… that’s a good thing. Wheat grass is superbly high in nutrients and antioxidants. It supports healthy skin, respiratory function, gastrointestinal health and fertility. It is highly alkalizing.
Barley grass is the first sprouted grassy leaves of barley seeds. During the sprouting process (this is true of all sprouts), numerous enzymes and other nutrients are created that weren’t in the original seed. Barley juice powder is rich in vitamins A, C, B and minerals iron, calcium (11 times more than milk), potassium, magnesium, and phosphorus. It is also very high in absorbable protein and contains 20 amino acids, including 8 of the essential amino acids that body can’t produce itself. It stimulates detoxification and improves skin healthy and elasticity. It helps in the repair of DNA.
Oat grass is the first sprouted grassy leaves of oats seeds. During the sprouting process (this is true of all sprouts), numerous enzymes and other nutrients are created that weren’t in the original seed. The health benefits of oat grass are plentiful, the first of which is cognitive improvement, including attention, maintaining focus and concentration on mental tasks. It also has been shown to lessen anxiety. and increase cell longevity. It is a good source of selenium, folate, zinc, B-Vitamins, copper and iron.
Beet juice has a high concentration of natural nitrates. Through a chain reaction, these compounds are changed into nitric oxide which helps in the circulation of blood in terms of better flow and delivering more oxygen to the cells. Beetroots contain betaine which boosts the functionality of the liver helping it detoxify the body better. Drinking red beet juice will supply your body with a significant amount of iron. Beet roots contain folate for cell protection and boosts gut mobility making for better digestion.
The carrot (Daucus carota) is a root vegetable often claimed to be the perfect health food. Carrots are a particularly good source of beta carotene, fiber, vitamin K1, potassium, and antioxidants. They have been linked to lower cholesterol levels and improved eye health. They contain soluble fiber, pectin, which helps detoxify the blood. They are rich in beta carotene which the body converts into Vitamin A and Vitamin B6 which helps in energy production. They also contain lutein which helps protect and increase eye health.
Acai berries are 1-inch (2.5-cm) round fruits that grow on Acai palm trees in the rainforests of Central and South America. They have a dark purple skin and yellow flesh surrounding a large seed. Because they contain large seeds or pits like apricots and olives, they’re technically not a berry, but rather a drupe. Acai berries have a unique nutritional profile — high in antioxidants and fat and low in sugar. They have a taste that’s often described as a cross between blackberries and unsweetened chocolate. Fresh Acai berries have a short shelf life and aren’t available outside of where they are grown. As an export, they are sold as a frozen fruit purée, dried powder or pressed juice.
Aronia berries contain many times higher levels of antioxidants, polyphenols, and anthocyanins than cranberries, blueberries, grapes, and most other fruits. Studies have shown that the antioxidants in Aronia Berry and all antioxidants in general help reduce the risk for many types of diseases in humans and are valuable in delaying the aging process of cells. They are low in sugar, help digestion, help raise HDL cholesterol, improve vision and immune function and help normalize blood sugar.
Bilberries are closely related to blueberries, are native to Europe and also known as huckleberry, or European blueberries. They are rich in antioxidants known as anthocyanins and polyphenols. Bilberries have been used for medicinal purposes for conditions ranging from eye conditions to diabetes. They are said to improve both day and night vision. Bilberry is said to strengthen the walls of blood vessels and is sometimes taken orally for varicose veins and hemorrhoids. Some evidence shows they are helpful with digestion and weight loss.
Black berry is high in Vitamin C, which is integral to collagen formation in bones, connective tissue, and blood vessels. They’re also high in Vitamin K which helps minerals be directed go to the right places in the body, manganese which is helpful for collagen formation and for helping wounds heal.

They are excellent for the skin and help pregnant mothers in reducing the risk of defects in babies.
Camu Camu Berry
Camu Camu Berry is native to the Amazon rainforest but has gained popularity worldwide due to its many health benefits. It is high in Vitamin C and many other potent antioxidants like flavonoids, including anthocyanins and ellagic acid. Some studies suggest that Camu Camu berries may reduce body weight by increasing the number of burnt calories and positively altering gut bacteria. They also help minimize the spike in blood sugar after eating a high-carb meal. They have also been shown to help promote maintenance of normal blood pressure.
Blueberries are low in calories, but high in nutrients. They help reduce DNA damage. The antioxidants in blue berries help cholesterol from becoming damaged. They protect aging neurons in the brain to help prevent memory loss. They help the urinary tract and help muscles to recover after strenuous exercise.
Cranberries are related to blueberries, bilberries, and lingonberries. Due to their very sharp and sour taste, cranberries are rarely eaten raw (however in GPS, they are still raw). Cranberries are rich in various healthy vitamins and plant compounds, some of which have been shown to aid the flow of urine through the kidneys. Cranberries are a rich source of several vitamins and minerals, especially vitamin C, which is essential for the maintenance of skin, muscles, and bone. It is also high in manganese which boosts cell growth, metabolism and the production of endogenous antioxidants. It is also high Vitamin E, Vitamin K and copper, which are often low in Western diets.
The Goji Berry is native to Asia, and people in Asia have been using this brightly colored fruit for more than 2,000 years as a medicinal herb and food supplement. Polysaccharides are a primary characteristic of the Goji berry. Goji berries also contain beta-carotene, which is responsible for the orange-red color pigment in Goji berries. Beta-carotene is vital for eye health, bone health, skin health, and cell development. The amount of beta-carotene in Goji berries is among the highest of all edible plants. Goji berries contain large amounts of Vitamins A and C. They have been shown to help improve immune function, help keep blood sugar in normal ranges and improve brain function. In traditional Chinese medicine, they are used to improve liver health.
Pomegranates contain Punicalagins and Punicic Acid, which are extremely potent antioxidants found in pomegranate juice and peel. Pomegranate seeds have three times the antioxidant activity of red wine and green tea and are useful in protecting against inflammation of all types.

It contains more than 300 naturally occurring components including beta-carotene, ascorbic acid (vitamin C), calcium, flavonoids, fiber, iron, niacin, potassium, zinc and other nutrients. Only 3% of its content is Curcumin. People taking only Curcumin miss out on the the other nutrients in Turmeric. Turmeric is known for protecting against inflammation and brain deterioration.
Shilajit is a brownish-black resin-like material discharged from layers of rock in several mountain ranges throughout the world, including the Himalayan, Tibetan, and Altai mountains. Shilajit is rich in minerals and is in essence modified humus (forming from plant decomposition). It contains many different bioactive compounds including humins, humic acids, fulvic acids, triterpenes, sterols, oxygenated dibenzo-alpha-pyrones, aromatic carboxylic acids, phospholipids, phenolic acids, numerous trace minerals. It is ground into a food powder.
Our non-dairy probiotics are coconut kefir is, IE, coconut water that has been fermented with kefir grains (from the famed Caucasus mountain region) and then freeze dried. Like dairy kefir, our non-dairy probiotics increase the number of beneficial bacteria and beneficial yeasts in your gut. These probiotics fight unhealthy bacteria and unhealthy yeasts in the gut, and thus help one to maintain a healthier gut. They also help stimulate digestion and boost your immune system.
You Are What You Eat — Which is Why We Recommend Green Powder Superdrink
Rishi Ternes, owner of New Earth Super Foods, left the study of medicine in Germany, came to the U.S. and turned his life over to the pursuit of nutrient dense food and seeking to understand the ability of food to transform health. He believes that “we are what we eat” and that “food should be our medicine”. Rishi owns a Super Food Cafe and Health Transformation Center in Arroyo Grande, California. He continues to search the world for foods that enable to the body to repair itself. As Rishi says, “the nutrients that your body needs are in the foods you aren’t eating.”
Rishi seeks out farmers and food suppliers that are progressive, meaning they are adding minerals and trace minerals to their soils, farming organically and harvesting their foods at the peak of ripeness. Rishi then ensures that those foods are juiced and freeze dried immediately before nutrient loss.
Food is the way of health not vitamins!
Green Powder Superdrink fits with the “first rule of health” which is that food should be our medicine. Green Powder Superdrink also fits with our second rule of health, which is that food engenders health, not vitamins. The United States has among the worst health statistics of all industrialized nations, yet the people of the United States consume more vitamins that the rest of the world combined. That means that you will eventually find, as so many others have already found, that your health will never really start to improve until you give up on vitamins and turn to food. It’s time to turn to food!
- Vitamins, IE nutrient isolates (often made in a laboratory), may look powerful and awesome on the label, but they don’t work as well in the human body as one would hope because they lack the many needed co-factors. Food comes with many needed co-factors nutrients.
- The lack of co-factors is the basic problem of vitamin supplements. Without those co-factors, they’re NOT as useful to our cells. For instance, Vitamin C is not just ascorbic acid but rather it is: ascorbic acid and numerous co-factors that work in the cells like catalysts or tag teams to make chemical reactions occur. The many co-factors are present in foods, but are not in vitamin isolates. The result, therefore, of taking vitamins is that the body has to scavenge body tissues to obtain the needed co-factors, or wait until they are available or the body may simply discard the nutrients for which co-factors are not available. This is extra work and/or a waste of nutrients, and therefore, vitamin isolates, do far less to improve health than does food.
