One of the developers of Olympian Labs "Greens Protein 8 in 1" was a guest on the Dr. Bob Martin Show. The eight products it contains are
Naturally occuring , highly assimilated whole food vitamins and minerals.
Enzymes that reduce the viscosity of foods in the stomach, resulting in better absorption and bioavailability of nutrients.
Hypoallergenic pea protein isolate that yields a high biological value (65.4%).
Patented fiber protection that yields 10% of the RDA fiber requirements.
Antioxidant protection providing 4845 ORAC units per serving.
Amino acids and herbal detoxifiers for gentle detoxification & cleansing.
Friendly bacteria, known as probiotics, that play a role in digestion, proper metabolism, and overall health. Current research shows the regular use of probiotics promotes normal digestive health and helps to restore intestinal balance even for IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) sufferers.
The Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) that are critical to human life and are particularly involved in stress, energy, and muscle metabolism.
