Editor's Rating:

Unique blend of green superfoods.

All too often our western diet, busy lifestyles and modern farming methods mean we get too little nutritional value from our food.   Each recommended serving of this powerful green supplement provides the nutritional equivalent of 5 – 7 servings of fresh fruit and veg in one go.  At less than 12 calories per serving and with no sugar, artificial additives, preservatives or colourings, Five a Day + is a convenient way of guaranteeing a healthy intake of natural enzymes, vitamins, minerals, proteins and antioxidants.

Among its many reported health benefits, this natural food supplement has been found to boost energy, aid detoxification, improve recovery and improve mental concentration.  It may also lower cholesterol and produce a measurable reduction in biological age.

Five a Day+ is more than a supplement.  It is a blend of whole foods and is suitable for all ages.  Made from chlorophyll-rich leafy vegetables and algae, it has exceptionally high concentrations of easily digestible nutrients to feed, protect and heal the body. To illustrate this, we have listed some key ingredients and their known health benefits below.  The list is not exhaustive but will give you some idea of the exceptional nutritional value of this product.

Spirulina

Spirulina is a cultivated blue-green algae, grown in the concentrated sunlight of Hawaii which makes it a rich source of chlorophyll and natural iron.

Chlorella

Chlorella is also a fresh water algae containing a complete protein profile, all the B vitamins, vitamins C and E and many minerals.  It is known for its positive effect on the immune system, lowering cholesterol, boosting oxygen levels and preventing hardening of the arteries, a precursor to heart attacks and strokes.

    Cost of fruit and Vegetable vs 5 a day +

    I've been aware for years that less than 3% of the population consume 5 serving of fresh fruit and vegetables a day. This product is easy to use, effective and best of all affordable. the cost of 5 servings of fruit and veg is way more than the cost of a serving of 5 a day +.

    The Amazing Detox and Energy Drink

    I have been taking super green supplements for 5 years and recently started taking the 5 A Day+ supplement.
    I use it at least once a day to boost my immune system and give me the energy I need to be a healthy active Mum.
    This year I was diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer! It was a total shock and has made me very ill. Your Thyroid controls your metabolism which give you energy!
    5 A Day+has helped me through the last 9 months and continues to boost my energy levels.

    Five a Day + and hunger

    I recently decided to fast for three days (after seeing apparent health benefits on a TV program). How can I possibly go for three days with no food? I thought to myself. Well, I took Five a Day + morning and evening, and found that it was a breeze! I plan to repeat the fast each month from now on.

    Amazing brain boosting results

    Two weeks ago, my Mother couldn't respond to even the simplest question and had to be fed. After Five a Day + every morning, she is now feeding herself and answers simple questions. There is a significant difference in her mental capacity and although I don't think she'll be enrolling on Open University, she is enjoying life more. Amazing!
