Green vegetable vitamin supplements are dietary supplement products that are designed as nutrition support to your daily diet. Food items are reduced into a powder form, combined and packaged as a capsule, or tablet. These supplements provide whole food based nutrition that benefits your body.

Types

Green vegetable vitamin nutritional supplements are generally made from spinach, broccoli, spirulina, oat grass, wheat grass, tomato powder, beet powder, apple fiber and probiotics to support assimilation. All these foods are rich in color, signifying the rich nutritional content of each. Green foods specifically provide ample amounts of vitamins K, A and C, all to support immune strength and antioxidant protection against free radical damage. These super foods are packed with vitamins, minerals, fiber and phytonutrients that all work together to support a healthy body.

Significance

Green vegetable vitamin supplements exhibit potent antioxidant activity, cleansing actions and cardiovascular support properties, according to the study, "Clinical Research: Green Magma Helps Lower LDL Oxidation and Free Radical Activity in the Blood, and Supports Normal Levels of Cholesterol." This means that all the functions of the body are supported with a quality supplement of green vegetable vitamins.

Prevention/Solution

Using a green vegetable nutritional supplement offers a variety of benefits, from increased immune function, anti-aging, optimal digestion, clear skin, balanced hormones, reduced cravings for sweets, clear handedness and a healthy heart, suggests the U.S. Department of Agriculture. A green vegetable vitamin supplement supplies the body with the nutrients it needs to function at its best, in combination with the reduction of unhealthy foods and daily exercise.

Function

The green vegetable vitamin supplements work with the natural chemistry of your body to support cardiovascular health, digestive health and immune strength. Phytonutrients within these colorful foods are known as carotenoids, flavonoids and isoflavones. Many more phytos exist, but science is studying them and trying to determine their effects on health, according William Sears, pediatric doctor and author with the website Ask Dr. Sears. These phytos are purported to boost immunity, fight free radical damage and help the heart and mind.

Expert Insight

Chlorophyll, which is contained in the green part of plants and is rich in green vegetable supplements, has been found to aid in rejuvenating the liver, healing wounds, preventing premature aging, prolonging youthfulness and potentially supporting the treatment of cancer, according to a 2008 report by Roderick Dashwood, "Chemopreventive properties of chlorophylls towards aflatoxin B1: a review of the antimutagenicity and anticarcinogenicity data in rainbow trout." Barley grass is another of the super green foods used in these all natural food supplements. Barley grass is a source of chlorophyll and it supports the body's immune system and helps with cleansing and cardiovascular health, supports research from the study "Clinical Research: Barley Grass Supports Cardiovascular Function."
