Recent research published in the Nature Immunology Journal indicates that immune cells essential for intestinal health could be controlled by leafy greens in your diet. A team of researchers discovered that the gene T-bet is essential for producing a population of critical immune cells (called ILCs) and that the gene responds to signals in the food we eat.
Doctor Gabrielle Belz, a member of the research team, explains, “The proteins in green leafy (cruciferous) vegetables interact with a cell surface receptor that switches on T-bet (the ‘green’ gene), the first identified gene responsible for the production of ILCs.”
So, are you feeding your “green” gene? If you’re one of the nine out of every 10 people who fail to eat at least three to five servings of vegetables every day, you clearly could use a convenient source of greens. Wheat grass is an excellent source. In less than a minute a day and for as low as 25 cents, you can have a serving of a nutritious dark green vegetable. PINES Wheat Grass is nutritionally equivalent to a spinach salad but much more concentrated. Seven tablets – or one teaspoon of powder – provides approximately the same nutrition as a serving of spinach (based on a 50 gram serving).
PINES Wheat Grass is the young wheat plant, grown under optimum conditions, carefully harvested at its nutritional maximum, dehydrated, and bottled for your convenience. In addition, PINES Wheat Grass is 100-percent USDA certified organic, gluten-free and Non-GMO. PINES also supports companies that practice sustainability and proactively resolve negative impacts made in the environment, addressing the need for “green” both internally AND externally!
PINES’ new tagline, “Keep It Simple, Keep It Clean, Keep It Green,” rounds out the vision of the company and further explains why its wheat grass is superior.
“Keep It Simple” – PINES uses natural 100-percent certified organic ingredients. Everything that goes into PINES is from their own organic farms or sourced to PINES’ highest of quality standards – no guesswork is needed to figure out “what’s in it” and “where it came from.”
“Keep It Clean” – PINES Wheat Grass is clean in every sense of the word – no pesticides or herbicides, no run-off or contamination. All ingredients are grown under strict USDA Organic guidelines. It’s clean and free from extraneous ingredients from a host of unknown sources.
“Keep It Green” – Of course wheat grass is green – literally! It’s also “green” in the environmental sense due to PINES’ sustainable, organic farming practices and packaging techniques. PINES products are packaged in nitrogen-packed amber glass bottles with metal caps to ensure optimum freshness with no oxidation – NOT plastic!
From the seed to the shelf, Pines International is truly unique in that they are involved in every step of the process, so you know exactly what you’re getting – only the best. If you’re seeking another source to ensure you’re getting enough “greens,” PINES Wheat Grass has everything you need!
