Alkaline Green Powder Comparison

alkalizing greens

Alkaline green powder is becoming more and more popular among people who want to improve their health and have more energy.  I use an alkaline green powder and I absolutely adore it!  Let’s look at two of the best alkaline green powders out there: Miessence and Health Force.

Why Use an Alkaline Green Powder?

Deep-greens are highly alkalising. They neutralise toxic acids in the blood and tissues caused by eating acid foods, excess stress, excessive exercise, environmental pollutants, drugs, alcohol, coffee, and tobacco.

When our bodies are acidic, bad bacteria, viruses, yeast, and other unfriendly organisms flourish. When our bodies are slightly alkaline (from eating alkaline foods like raw veggies and green food powders), bad bacteria, cancer, yeast, and viruses can’t survive!

Deep-greens offer major benefits to your entire body. They’re good for your brain, your bones, and your heart, AND they help to prevent cancer, detoxify and alkalise your cells, boost your immune system, and give you more energy!

Medical studies on blue-green algae, green grass juices, and leafy-green vegetables found in green powders like Miessence and others have demonstrated:

  • Strengthening of the immune system
  • Improvement in digestive problems
  • Improvement in mental focus and clarity
  • Improved recovery after exercise
  • Increase in energy
  • Stabilisation of blood sugar level, blood pressure and cholesterol levels
  • Anti tumor activity
  • Reduction in symptoms from allergies

Growing Conditions

100% TruGanically™ Grown. TruGanic™ is HealthForce’s own purist, hard-core, quality standard for sourcing and production. Ingredients must pass actual tests (that no other standard requires) to verify non-GMO status and ensure they are 100% free of pesticides and irradiation.

Other Factors

  • Organic ingredients are certified by the company themselves.  Not all ingredients are labelled organic. (Laver, chlorella, spirulina, yacon leaf, alma berry, shilajit, nettle leaf and carob pod are labelled Tru-ganic, but are not labelled Organic.  Make of that what you will.)
  • No fillers or binders.
  • 100% vegan and gluten free.
  • Dark glass packaging with unique metal lid and oxygen absorber protects 100% of nutrients (creates a vacuum). Glass is recycled/recyclable, does not outgas, and is non-toxic to melt down.
  • Low-temperature dried to preserve health-promoting phytochemicals.
  • Likely not fair trade, as this is not specified.

Miessence

Ingredients

  • AFA Blue-Green Algae powder
  • chlorella powder
  • spirulina
  • wheat grass juice powder
  • barley grass juice powder
  • alfalfa grass juice powder
  • oat grass juice powder
  • kamut grass juice powder
  • nettle powder
  • collard powder
  • kale powder
  • parsley powder

Growing Conditions

The environment in which grass grows determines its nutrient content and vitality. Sown in rich, deep, organic soil, our grass seeds burst to life and become a photosynthesis factory. The simple sugars created during photosynthesis are converted to valuable complex nutrients by the enzymes and minerals the plant absorbs through its roots. A substantial root system, crucial to a grass’s nutrient density, allows the grass to pull minerals and trace elements up from the soil, which is supplemented with rich organic vegetable compost and seaweed.

The grasses are all harvested when the tender shoots are at their peak of nutritional potency, enzymatic activity, and chlorophyll content, in the early morning when the dew is still on the blades, and taken to the organic processing facility just minutes away. The freshly-cut young grasses are immediately cooled, washed and juiced at 2°C (35° F) to protect and preserve all the enzymes, chlorophyll and other valuable constituents.

Other Factors

  • 100% certified organic by multiple third parties and international bodies including the USDA an the ACO.
  • Miessence uses the hardest, food grade, recyclable plastic, PETE (1), which does not leach undesirable contaminants into their products.
  • No fillers or binders.
  • 100% vegan and gluten free.
  • Low-temperature dried to preserve health-promoting phytochemicals.
  • Sourced using fair trade methods.

The Verdict

Both of these products are EXCELLENT.

There is only one shortcoming that I found in each product.

  • Health Force is NOT certified organic by a third party.   Neither is it fair trade.  Miessence is BOTH 100% certified organic by multiple third parties and international bodies and it is fair trade.
  • Miessence is significantly more expensive than Health Force.

So the decision is up to you.  If fair trade and 100% certified organic is important to you, choose Miessence.  If you do not want to pay more money for these qualities, choose Health Force.  Both are AMAZING for your body and your mind.
