GREEN 85 JUICE FORMULA (The Science)
Replacing critical nutrients farmed out of our soil
#1 & #3 Concentrated Grass Juices Blend
(Wheat & Oat) Grasses, the first land based organisms, possess a complete matrix of proteins (in amino-acid form) to build a strong muscular body. They are also rich in Chlorophyll which is very similar to the structure of our own blood. Grasses can neutralize toxins and detoxify us while rejuvenating us on a cellular level.

#6 Wheat Sprout
Wheat sprouts are a rare source of a special compound known as Super Oxide Dismutase (SOD), which helps the body to repair itself quickly, slow down the aging process and reduce inflammation. Its also high in folic acid which is great for heart health, brain function, antidepressant activity, and a great detoxifier!

Dulse may be best known for its high iodine content to improve thyroid function but has also been clinically proven to possess free radical scavenging activity, making dulse a useful antioxidant. The seaweed has also been demonstrated to inhibit the growth of fat cells in the laboratory. Utilizing dulse may help to repair compromised body tissues.

#24 Soil-Based Probiotics (Bacillus coagulans):
Probiotics are the good bacteria in our gut that comprises what should be about three pounds of our immune system. Probiotics help to establish that good bacteria so we can have ideal bowel movements, improved cognitive function, and a stronger constitution. A must in our toxic and high stressed world!

#25 Digestive Enzymes
Digestive Enzymes assist the breakdown of food molecules while improving digestion and bowel movements. Neutralizes indigestion with no side bad effects. Digestive Enzymes also carry electric frequency to our cells that literally charges up our battery (our cells) with energy while fighting off free-radical damage keeping us looking young and feeling great.

#26 Vitamin D3
Green 85 contains naturally occurring, non-synthetic Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol). Most Americans are over 40% deficient in Vitamin and most people in the world are also deficient. Vitamin D is important for regulating the absorption of calcium and phosphorus, and for facilitating normal immune system function. Getting a sufficient amount of vitamin D is important for normal growth and development of bones and teeth, as well as improved resistance against certain diseases.

I’m a big fan of Green85. I started my journey 9 mos ago after stepping on a scale and seeing 230 lbs. I listened to this Tim James dude on the Conspiracy Farm podcast and gave it a whirl with the initial detox protocol. Since then, I’ve lost 38 lbs and am enjoying life under 200 lbs for the first time in decades. Even 20 lbs less than I weighed in college. Along with the weight loss, Green85 has given my lots of energy and allowed me to improve my Racquetball game immensely. As an added bonus, my skin has actually tightened – I would have expected loose skin or something after walking around with an added 40 lbs, sometimes up to 50 lbs. All of this with barely changing my diet other than a few extra salads for lunch. Thank you Tim for trailblazing and producing such excellent products.
This stuff is amazing! Havent had some in a week because i ran out and i feel a huge decrease in energy and i started eating way more again and gained some weight, cant wait to order more!!!
