Leaves are among the most abundant sources of vital nutrients on the planet. CoCoa LeafGreens is a combination of barley leaf, spinach, kale, arugula, Swiss chard and broccoli sprout powders. AIM then adds the delectable taste and antioxidant power of cacao and cocoa powders to these exclusive greens.
CoCoa LeafGreens is the only product on the market to utilize this unique blend of leaves, sprouts, cocoa and cacao that works synergistically for optimal health benefits.
Hordeum vulgare is the most nutritious of the green grasses. Barley leaf contributes to the high levels of vitamin K and chlorophyll. Vitamin K is essential for the body’s utilization of calcium for healthy bone density.
Spinacia oleracea is rich in nutrients, including many essential vitamins, minerals and potent antioxidants. Lutein, a nutrient found in spinach, may help protect the skin and eyes from free radical damage.
Kale (Brassica oleracea Aceph- ala) leaf contains an abundance of flavonoids. Quercetin, found naturally in kale, arugula, Swiss chard and spinach leaves, belongs to a group of plant pigments known as flavonoids, which are partly responsible for the color of many fruits and vegetables. The synthetic quercetin dihydrate found in most supplements is not soluble in water, so it has no meaningful benefits. The natural quercetin found in the CoCoa LeafGreens is absorb- able and bioavailable.
Recent studies have found that quercetin may inhibit the production and release of histamine and other allergic and inflammatory substances.1 Histamine can trigger seasonal allergy symptoms, such as runny nose, watery eyes and the swelling
of soft tissue.
Arugula (Eruca sativa) contains a group of compounds known as glucosinolates, which are responsible for the distinct flavor of arugula. When digested, glucosinolates are broken down into indoles, nitriles, thiocyanates and sothiocyanates. These compounds have been found to protect cells from DNA damage.
Swiss Chard Leaf
Swiss chard (Beta vulgaris) leaf contains kaempferol, a flavonoid in a category of compounds called polyphenols. A 2002 study conducted on healthy women aged 19–21 years found that a diet rich in polyphenols works to reduce oxidative stress.
Of the cruciferous vegetables, Brassica oleracea sprouts contain the highest concentration of sulforaphane, a phytonutrient that may reduce inflammation. A study published in 2009 showed that oral consumption of sulforaphane in the form of broccoli sprout powder reduced inflammation in human airways by increasing naturally occurring enzymes in the body.3 Two servings of CoCoa LeafGreens provides 400 µg of sulforaphane. This is the daily beneficial amount of sulforaphane determined by numerous studies.
CoCoa LeafGreens contains a three-part mixture of cocoa powders: organic cacao powder, organic cocoa powder and alkalized cocoa.
The organic cacao powder comes from cacao beans and retains the unadulterated cocoa flavor, natural antioxidants and fiber found in the original beans. The organic cocoa powder and alkalized cocoa are obtained through a hydraulic pressing of cocoa mass whereby cocoa butter is removed from the bean.
CoCoa LeafGreens does not contain any added flavors. The natural chocolate flavor comes from the blend of the three cocoa powders.
A small amount of stevia leaf extract provides a slight sweetness without sugar, artificial sweeteners or flavors. This makes CoCoa LeafGreens a healthy option for parents looking to increase their children’s consumption of greens.
Cocoa provides an incredibly rich source of antioxi- dants and flavonoids. In fact, over 700 vital compounds have been discovered in cocoa. These compounds contribute to cocoa’s support of overall health and its positive effect on energy.
Can I take CoCoa LeafGreens and BarleyLife?
Yes, the two products are complementary. Two servings of CoCoa LeafGreens can be taken separately from one serving of BarleyLife at different times during the day.
