Ingredients & the health benefits:
cracked cell wall chlorella: this freshwater micro-algae provides the body with nucleic acids, omega 3 fatty acids, minerals such as iron, zinc, magnesium, copper and vitamin B12 and D2. it is also a source of plant based protein (a whopping 60% by weight!). It is a source of photosynthetic pigments chlorophyll-a and chlorophyll-b, known to neutralize toxins and eliminate heavy metals in the body.
wheatgrass: containing up to 70% chlorophyll, wheatgrass may increase sustainable energy levels, detoxify and cleanse the liver, support hemoglobin production, and balance pH levels.
spirulina: a credible source of protein, vitamin B2 , iron, and chlorophyll, this blue green algae is a superfood favourite. the main antioxidant in spirulina, phycocyanin, is a major antioxidant and has strong anti-inflammatory properties. It may also help reduce LDL (bad) cholesterol and triglyceride levels while improve HDL (good) cholesterol levels.
moringa: moringa is high in vitamins B2, B6, C and beta-carotene. it is a source of two antioxidants quercetin and chlorogenic acid, which may help lower blood pressure and moderate blood sugar levels. the moringa plant can potentially help to reduce inflammation in the body, as well as provide sustainable energy.
camu camu: get out of the spotlight oranges, make space for camu camu berries! camu camu can be considered the most dense botanical source of vitamin C in the whole world! we think that’s amazing. vitamin C is an antioxidant that protects our cells from free radical damage, may reduce our risk of developing heart disease, boost our immune system and benefit skin health.
love: as famously sang by The Beatles, all you need is love. love is an essential nutrient for optimal health, as it directly benefits both our mental and physical health in many ways. we at Heirloom aim to always make you feel nourished with love.
