Greens Supplements - Plants vs. Plant Extracts

Let's talk Superfood Green Powders - Plants VS. Plant Extract

Greens supplements are veggies, fruits, grasses, herbs, algae and other nutritional foods that have been dried and turned into powder.

Not all greens supplements are created equal. Look at the prices of similar products. Some cost $20 and some cost $60 or more for 30 servings. Why is this?

Are the cheap ones as good as the expensive ones?

Drying a plant such as green tea leaves and grinding them up finely gives you a powder the can be used in the supplement. With the green tea, it is called Matcha and it is not very expensive to produce or add to the product. Making a dried green tea extract is a much more extensive process and super concentrates all the antioxidants called catechins. You can consume much less of it with the same biological benefits.

You get what you pay for!

This is true for all of the other nutrients found in “Superfood Greens” found on the market. Products that simply take dried grapes and make a powder are very different than products that create an extract from grape skins using advanced lab equipment and a scientific process.

The best seller on Amazon is not always the best product. Sometimes it is just less expensive and has the right label or advertising. Sometimes it is very misleading. You may get some benefit from using a powdered green that uses the “dry and grind” method but it will be nothing compared to the benefits of other products that formulate a group of specific extracts, enzymes, phytochemicals, and superfood nutrients.

Advanced scientific nutrition formulated by renowned MD.

Perfect Greens from BodyHealth is perhaps the most advanced and healthful Superfood greens supplement powder on the market. It contains the concentrated extracts from many of the superfood ingredients. Perfect Greens was formulated by Dr. David Minkoff, one of the worlds leading integrative medicine practitioners. Integrative medicine is where both Conventional treatments that you would find in an ER or hospital are used as well as Natural or Alternative medicine with proven successful results.

Dr. David Minkoff graduated from the University of Wisconsin Medical School in 1974 and was elected to the “Phi Beta Kappa” of medical schools, the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Honors Medical Fraternity for very high academic achievement. He then completed both a Pediatric Residency and Fellowship in Infectious Disease at the University of California at San Diego.

He worked at the University of California and Children’s Hospitals in San Diego as an attending physician in infectious disease while conducting original research on Ribaviron, a broad spectrum anti-viral agent to fight disease. He also co-directed a neo-natal intensive care unit and worked in emergency medicine.

In 1992, Dr Minkoff’s wife Sue, a Registered Nurse, became interested in nutrition and health and began to go to lectures from some of the experts in the field. At the time, Dr Minkoff was pretty fixed in his view of traditional medicine and it took a lot of convincing to get him to come to one of these lectures. After hearing Dr Jeffrey Bland speak, Dr Minkoff had a eureka moment and began pursuing the alternative field with a vengeance. Based on this new knowledge Dr Minkoff and his wife set up a small clinic in 1997 to help some friends with their medical problems. What began as an experiment blossomed into Lifeworks Wellness Center, one of the most successful clinics for complementary medicine in the United States. In the process, he gained expertise in Biological medicine, integrative oncology, heavy metal detoxification, anti-aging medicine, hormone replacement therapy, functional medicine, energy medicine, neural and prolotherapy, homeopathy and optimum nutrition. He studied under the masters in each of these disciplines until he became an expert in his own right. Dr Minkoff is one of the most in demand speakers in the field and wrote an Amazon best selling book called The Search For The Perfect Protein.

The demand for the products and protocols he discovered became a catalyst for founding BodyHealth.Com, a nutrition company that now manufactures and distributes cutting-edge nutritional solutions for the many health problems of today. Dr. Minkoff writes two free online newsletters, “The Optimum Health Report” and ”The BodyHealth Fitness Newsletter”, to help others learn about optimum health and fitness.

Dr. Minkoff is an avid athlete himself and has completed 44 Ironman Triathlons. To keep his fitness maximal, he lives the lifestyle he teachers to others and tries to set an example for others, so they can enjoy a life free of pain and full of energy.

Cortisol America: The Fat-Storing, Muscle-Destroying, Mood-Killing Hormone We Can't Live Without

If you’ve ever had a shock and felt the adrenaline surge in your body then you’ve felt cortisol. It’s a wake-you-up, get-you–ready-for-action hormone.

It really is. It hits its lowest point around midnight, so you can go to sleep, and then peaks again about an hour after you’ve gotten up in the morning, getting you to wake up and get ready for the day. 

It’s nick-named the “stress hormone” because it’s released in moments of stress. So in a dangerous situation, or if you get scared suddenly, you’ll feel it. 

But… when we have too-high levels of cortisol for too long, it can make us feel stressed… even if we have no reason to be.

Alright, so we know that when sugar comes into the body Insulin is released to shuttle that sugar into the cell. And if the cell is full, then it connects the sugars in chains and stores them as something called Glycogen in your muscle and liver cells for use later on. And if those are full then it connects the sugar to fatty acids and stores it as body fat. And, while Insulin is in the blood stream, fat burning is prevented.

We also know that, given too much sugar for too long, the cells start resisting it and refusing to let it in when Insulin tells them too, causing them to have less sugar to make energy with as well as causing more of it to be converted to body fat.

This is the second article in a series on Insulin, Insulin Resistance, Sugar and Body Fat, as a well as an overall series on hormones, so stay tuned!

Alright, if you read the first article in this series (Link this to first article) then you understand that when sugar is in the blood stream the hormone Insulin is released to send it into the cells for energy, or to store it as energy in the muscles as something called Glycogen, or to convert it into fats known as Triglycerides — body fat.

And that while insulin is in the bloodstream almost no fat burning can take plac
