What are the health benefits of green juice products?

Eva B. Cwynar, MD
Internal Medicine
The most common substances found in green juice products are blue-green algae, wheat grass, barley grass, oat grass, spirulina (a form of algae), chlorella (also a form of algae), and dulse (seaweed). Green juice products contain many physiologically fortifying nutrients and are rich in trace minerals, the catalysts that enable vitamins and enzymes to perform their various functions. They also may supply essential amino acids that cannot be manufactured by the body yet are vital to health and sexual functioning.

Green juice products are among the few common nutritional sources of chlorophyll, which functions to activate the enzymes that produce vitamins E, A, and K. Chlorophyll has a structure that is almost identical to that of hemoglobin, a naturally occurring substance that carries oxygen throughout the body. More oxygen means more energy for your body to enjoy a healthy sex life.
