Look no further than pure chlorella, the blue-green algae that is grown in the Orient, primarily Japan. The chlorophyll levels, vitamins/minerals and the health promoting CHF or 'cholorella growth factor', make this a powerhouse of health promoting phyto-nutrients. Chlorella's greatest assets to me: removing toxins from the body and boosting immunity.

Do a Google search on chlorella and reap the mountains of praise...!

Here's what I use. I just called for you and they said it contains no bee products or any animal products of any kind. I really like the way it taste too but maybe I'm weird. :lol:

"vitamineral green" is vegan. You can find it at www.veganessentials.com (I should get a kickback from VE for recommending them so much...but I swear I don't get any!). You can also do a search for it online and buy it directly from the creator, Jameth Sheridan.

I have been using Jarrow Green Defense, I think it's pretty Awesome ($15 for 30 day supply below)

http://www.luckyvitamin.com/790011170105.html

Includes Yaeyama Chlorella, Wheat Grass, Barley Grass, Quinoa, Spinach, Broccoli, and many more- Yummy.... I think I'll have some now actually.

Also using Jarrow Broccomax, which has Sulfuruphane extracted mechanically from broccoli seeds-

This one looks good too, but I haven't used it yet, Berry superfoods:

I know that drinking super-green or any other dried greens powder is a heckuvalot better than drinking a Soda or a Beer, but I wonder how much health benefit is really there, given that the powder is has gone through so much processing and re-processing in the name of "convenience."

Green Powders or Multi-vitamin

Try the Superfood from the website below. It's the best multi-vitamin source available.

That's what I wonder too.

Vitamineral Greens from HealthForce Nutritionals all organic or wild crafted and completely vegan the real deal.

According to T. Colin Campbell and some others, if you are eating a well balanced diet, supplements are really not necessary. Whatcha think?

I tend to think that they are right.

Many of the green powders are whole foods - simply dried algaes or grass juices. They can be used as a supplement but for the most part are really just anouther way of eating yr greens. :D
