What It Is

A nutrient-dense, superfood greens and reds complex offering all the benefits of whole plant foods, and then some, to help fuel your active lifestyle.*

What It Does

Steel Greens™ is designed to support the body’s antioxidant system, digestive function and immune health while providing natural, feel-good energy.*

In addition to superfood greens and reds, Steel Greens™ includes DigeZyme® digestive enzymes and LactoSpore® (Bacillus coagulans MTCC 5856) probiotic for maximum absorption.*

Proven Active Ingredients

Organic Greens Blend: Our organic greens blend features a transparently dosed 5-gram blend of organic greens form a combination of nutrient-packed foods including spinach, parsley, kale, barley grass, chlorella, bell pepper, green apple, banana, sweet potato and broccoli.

With high micronutrient and antioxidant content, these foods are high in essential vitamins and minerals like vitamin A and C, which help support immune function, reduce oxidative stress and support energy production.*

Organic Reds Blend: In addition to our greens blend, we’ve included a transparently dosed  2.5-gram organic reds blend containing raspberry, blueberry, strawberry, cherry, pomegranates and cranberry.

Dark red fruits are rich in vitamins, minerals, and polyphenols which may help reduce oxidative stress, inflammation, and exercise-induced muscle damage.*

Together this collection of fruits, vegetables, and herbs from our organic greens and reds blend help inhibit free radical production, optimize cellular metabolic activity, and support nitric oxide levels within the body.*

Kiwifruit Powder:A small fruit that packs a nutritional punch. Its green flesh is rich in micronutrients and antioxidants, including potassium, vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K, and folate.*

Kiwifruit also supports healthy digestion due to the presence of a proteolytic enzyme called actinidin that can help break down protein.* More specifically, kiwifruit extract has been noted to improve digestion of several common proteins, including cheese, yogurt, beef, fish, and raw eggs.*

DigeZyme® Multi-Enzyme Complex: A proprietary combination of enzymes that help in proper digestion and better absorption of the foods we eat.* This multi-enzyme complex consists of:

  • α-Amylase: Breaks down carbohydrates such as starch, glycogen and polysaccharides into smaller units.*
  • Protease: Breaks down protein and supports immune function.*
  • Cellulase: Breaks down cellulose and chitin. It helps to free nutrients in both fruits and vegetables.*
  • Lactase: Breaks down lactose (milk sugar) and useful for lactose intolerance.*
  • Lipase: Breaks down lipids and improves fat utilization and also supports healthy gallbladder function.*

Research shows that DigeZyme® can enhance the bioavailability of vital nutrients such as vitamin C and β-carotene, and it can also decrease the pain and tenderness induced by exercise.*

The DOMS decreasing effects of DigeZyme® may be due to its ability to reduce levels of two biomarkers of muscle damage in creatine kinase and lactate dehydrogenase.*

LactoSpore® (Bacillus coagulans, MTCC 5856): A commercial probiotic preparation containing Bacillus coagulans, MTCC 5856. Clinical research notes that supplementation with LactoSpore® may promote gut health by significantly decreasing the severity of symptoms associated with various GI disorders and promote a higher quality of life compared to placebo.* LactoSpore is Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS).

Suggested Use

As a dietary supplement, add one serving (one level scoop) of Steel Greens™ to a shaker cup or blender filled with 8-12 fl. oz. of cold water or your favorite beverage (adjust for taste preferences) and mix thoroughly. Consume one serving per day or as directed by your healthcare professional.

In an ideal world, we would spend our days relaxing, hiking, and eating bountiful meals rich in lean meats, healthy fats, and plants. Unfortunately, we don’t all have as much free time as we’d like, which usually leaves us scurrying about from one place to another all the while munching away on some cold, stale sandwich from a gas station or drive thru.*

And, if we’re honest with ourselves, we try to get in enough fruits and vegetables each day, but to a man or woman, we’d all agree that we could probably do better with our diets.*

That’s where Steel Greens™ comes in.*

What is Steel Greens™?

Steel Greens™ is a micronutrient-dense, superfood greens and reds complex to complement your daily fruit and vegetable intake and support an active lifestyle.*

Steel Greens™ was formulated to enhance energy production, bolster immune function, and support antioxidant defense systems.*

Our greens formula is NOT meant to replace your intake of plant foods (unlike other greens supplements claim). Steel Greens™ is intended to be used in addition to an otherwise healthy diet and “fill in the gaps” for those days when you may have a few micronutrient shortfalls.*

Why is Steel Greens™ Better?

Greens formulas are notorious for their earthy, dirt-like taste and texture. That’s where Steel Greens™ is different.*

Not only does it contain ultra-premium ingredients, but it’s also delicious tasting.

And, not only does Steel Greens™ taste great, but it’s easy to mix and free of artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives. Plus, Steel Greens™ is stimulant-free and contains no banned substances.*

It is a fantastic product for anyone looking to enhance their nutrition plan and fill the gaps in their diet to support peak performance day in and day out.

To top it off, Steel Greens™ also contains added digestive enzymes and probiotics to support gut health and enhance nutrient absorption.*

What’s in Steel Greens™?

Organic Greens Blend

Headlining the ingredients list of Steel Greens™ is our Organic Greens blend which features a transparently dosed 5-gram blend of organic greens from a combination of 10 nutrient-packed foods including spinach, chlorella, kale, and barley grass.*

Greens formulas are noted for their high micronutrient and antioxidant content. These foods are high in essential vitamins and minerals like vitamins A and C, which may help support immune function, reduce oxidative stress and support energy production.* [ 1,2,3]

Organic Reds Blend

To round out our greens blend, we’ve also included 2.5 grams of natural reds from a combination of six nutrient-packed foods including blueberry, cherry, and pomegranate.*

Dark red fruits are rich in vitamins, minerals, and polyphenols which may help reduce oxidative stress, inflammation, and exercise-induced muscle damage.* [4,5]

Together this collection of fruits, vegetables, and herbs from our organic greens and reds blend help inhibit free radical production, optimize cellular metabolic activity, and support nitric oxide levels within the body.*

Kiwifruit Powder

Kiwi is a small fruit that packs a nutritional punch, not to mention a lot of flavor. Its green flesh is sweet, tangy, and rich in micronutrients and antioxidants, including potassium, vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K, and folate.*

Kiwifruit also supports healthy digestion due to the presence of a proteolytic enzyme called actinidin that can help break down protein.* [6]

More specifically, kiwifruit extract has been noted to improve digestion of several common proteins, including cheese, yogurt, beef, fish, and raw eggs.* [7,8]

It’s also worth noting this effects came without the addition of any other digestive enzymes.*

DigeZyme® Multi-Enzyme Complex

DigeZyme® is a unique blend of five digestive enzymes included to support proper digestion and enhance the absorption of nutrients.*

The digestive enzymes included in DigeZyme® are:

  • α-Amylase — breaks down starch
  • Protease — breaks down protein
  • Cellulase — breaks down cellulose (primary constituent of plant cell walls and vegetable fibers
  • Lactase — breaks down lactose
  • Lipase — breaks down lipids (fat)

Since digestive enzymes are naturally produced in the body, you might wonder why they are included in Steel Greens™.*

Well, due to aging or other extraneous factors, the body’s innate ability to produce specific enzymes that play a crucial role in digestion starts declining.*

To promote optimal nutrient digestion and help active individuals get the most from their nutrient-dense diets, we’ve included a comprehensive digestive enzyme complex.*

Research shows that DigeZyme® can enhance the bioavailability of vital nutrients such as vitamin C and β-carotene, and it can also decrease the pain and tenderness induced by exercise.* [9]

The DOMS decreasing effects of DigeZyme may be due to its ability to reduce levels of two biomarkers of muscle damage in creatine kinase and lactate dehydrogenase.*

LactoSpore®

Gut health is a subject of great interest recently as research continues to pour in highlighting the widespread impact the microbiome has within the body.*

The human GI tract contains ~400 different species of bacteria that combat the growth of harmful pathogenic bacteria and promote a healthy digestive system.*

Based on this emerging body of research, many health-conscious individuals are revamping their diet and supplementing with probiotics to support gut health.*

Probiotics are live microorganisms which are considered beneficial for the gut, and when ingested in adequate quantities may confer a health benefit.*

LactoSpore® is a commercial probiotic preparation containing Bacillus coagulans, MTCC 5856.*

Clinical research notes that supplementation with LactoSpore® may promote gut health by significantly decreasing the severity of symptoms associated with various GI disorders and promote a higher quality of life compared to placebo.* [10]
