Changing Habits Supreme Green Blend is a blend of barley grass, chlorella, spirulina, broccoli sprout, sweet leaf “stevia” and kelp. These green super foods are nature’s way of supplying plant based vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, phytonutrients, antioxidants and amino acids in a convenient manner, which are easily digested, absorbed and utilised. The body has evolved to eat plant based nutrients bound within a food not a pill. Changing Habits Supreme Green Blend contains nutrients that the body has the ability to recognise and use for the many functions the body must perform for health and energy.
Due to recent information we have learnt about wheat, the wheatgrass was removed from the Supreme Green Blend. You can learn more about this at www.whatswithwheat.com

Organic Barley Grass Powder
We all know that multiple servings of vegetables are recommended each day but many of us fall short of that goal. The Barley Grass in the Changing Habits Supreme Green Blend fulfils that short fall. Barley grass key nutrients include; chlorophyll, amino acids, carotenoids, essential fatty acids, flavonoids, vitamin K, enzymes, vitamin A, minerals, folate and B vitamins. All these nutrients work together to promote health and energy in all systems of the body.
Chlorella, like spirulina, is a single cell green algae and is part of plankton. Chlorella provides the highest concentration of chlorophyll known. It is also a valuable source of protein, iron, vitamin B12, betacarotene, and nineteen amino acids. Chlorella is also the food substance with the highest known levels of RNA and DNA. Some researchers believe regular use of chlorella might help repair genetic material in cells by providing important building blocks. This in turn helps protect health and slows the aging process. In some studies chlorella showed promise of helping reduce blood pressure. Fibromyalgia sufferers also experienced notable benefits after using chlorella for two months and chlorella can help speed wound healing. One of chlorella’s most promising benefits comes in the area of immune system function. Scientists do not know the exact mechanism by which chlorella accomplishes this but they believe chlorella boosts the activity of T-cells and macrophages resulting in an increase in interferon which helps the immune system battle bacteria and viruses.
Spirulina is one of hundreds of algae species and is commonly known as blue green algae, it is a tiny organism that usually grows in water. Spirulina does not have roots, leaves, or stems, however it does contain a pigment called chlorophyll, which is required by all plants to turn sunlight into food energy. The only difference between chlorophyll and haemoglobin (red blood cells) is that chlorophyll contains a magnesium atom while haemoglobin contains an iron atom.
Spirulina creates proteins and sugars just as animals do. It is an excellent source of plant protein, as well as being a rare food source for the essential fatty acid GLA. It is high in B12, easy to absorb iron, antioxidants and phytonutrients. These all help the body decrease the activity of free radicals that damage body cells and enhance immune function and decrease the aging process.
New Zealand Broccoli Sprout Powder
Broccoli sprouts are included in the Supreme Green Blend due to the extensive scientific research of the health benefits of cruciferous vegetables and their role in the prevention of chronic disease. In particular, bioactive compounds in broccoli are implicated in a number of health benefits and disease prevention. These include:
reducing the risk of various cancers (2)
reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease (3)
protection of the nervous system (4), and
regulation of the immune system (5).
Organic New Zealand Kelp Powder
Kelp has over 70 minerals, including iodine, potassium, magnesium, calcium and iron, along with amino acids and enzymes. This range of nutrients, especially iodine, makes it an essential promoter of glandular health – in fact iodine is essential for the functioning of the thyroid. The thyroid gland makes a hormone that contains iodine which is required for every cell in the body to help with metabolism. Without iodine we may feel listless, tired, have dry hair and skin, lack motivation, cold hands and feet, hair loss, brain fog and anxiety. It’s an important nutrient that also helps in the architecture of our glandular tissue, including breasts, ovaries and prostate. Iodine deficiency has been linked to an increase in cysts, nodules and cancers in glandular tissues.
Green Stevia (natural sweetener)
A small amount of dried sweet leaf (Stevia) had been added to the green powder to add some sweetness but being a herb it also has some medicinal properties. Sweet leaf is 300 times the sweetness of sugar and has a negligible effect on blood glucose, moving more towards lowering blood glucose. Sweet leaf has been reported to help people with high blood pressure and hypertension as well as has properties when drunk as a tea to help heartburn.
Allergy warning: Kelp may contain traces of crustacean shellfish.

Kelp has over 70 minerals including iodine, potassium, magnesium, calcium, iron, plus amino acids and enzymes. In 1930, iodine was seen to be lacking in the diet and was added to salt. Then by the 1970’s, salt became something that we were told not to consume due to hypertension. So it’s now believed that a large percentage of the population is not getting enough iodine. This is why seaweed is added to our Changing Habits Seaweed Salt as well as the greens as it’s important to make sure iodine intake is adequate through the foods we eat.
Broccoli sprouts are a rich source of Vitamins A, B6, C, E, K, along with folate, fibre, phosphorus, potassium and magnesium (5, 7, 8) – included due to the extensive scientific research of the health benefits of cruciferous vegetables and their role in the prevention of chronic disease. As a member of the brassica vegetable family, broccoli is one of the most potent sources of glucosinolates. The breakdown of glucosinolates produces a group of bioactive molecules known as isothiocyanates that have anticarcinogenic properties (6). The most common glucosinolate found in broccoli is glucoraphanin. The breakdown of this product produces the phytochemical sulforaphane: a highly potent product involved in “switching on” detoxification enzymes that elevate our cellular defence system against oxidative damage and cancer development (6,7). Broccoli sprouts are a rich source of Vitamins A, B6, C, E and K, along with folate, fibre, phosphorus, potassium and magnesium (6, 8, 9).
Unfortunately it is fact that we live in a toxic world.
We are surrounded by chemicals in our food, personal care products, cleaning products, the water we drink and the air we breathe. Some of these things we can control, but others we can’t. Research has found that more than 200 chemicals can be found in a newborn’s umbilical cord, including BPA, petrochemicals, pesticides, lead and mercury.
Thankfully our body’s innate intelligence can assist us in eliminating some of these toxins, although many do remain within our body so it’s important that we provide it with the correct tools to support constant detoxification. One way to do this is to consume an abundance of greens. Chlorophyll, which is what makes green vegetables green, binds with toxic heavy metals stored in blood and tissue and assists their elimination, counteracting their major toxicity (1). Side effects of metal toxicity may include chronic fatigue, autoimmune diseases, neurological diseases, general brain fog, depression and anxiety, to name a few.
If you feel like you need a little assistance in getting greens into your diet, it may be as simple as sparing a few seconds a day to give your body what it needs, in one shot! The Changing Habits Supreme Green Blend contains a combination of some of the richest sources of nutrients on the planet.
