If you’re not currently taking a greens supplement, we understand.
Most are little more than a cheap blend of fruits and vegetable powders sprinkled with useless digestive enzymes and ineffective probiotics.
In other words, the average greens supplement has little to offer.
It doesn’t contain enough essential vitamins and minerals to replace a well-formulated multivitamin and can’t replace the need for fruits and vegetables in your diet, so why bother?
Both your body and bank account would be better off if you just ate more plant foods instead.
Genesis is different.
In contains several highly nutritious “superfoods” as well as adaptogens, herbs, and other phytonutrients you don’t normally find in greens supplements, including spirulina, reishi mushroom, moringa, and maca.
Research shows that these ingredients can benefit you in a number of ways, including . . .
Boosting physical and mental performance
Improving heart and circulatory health
Increasing energy levels and libido
Elevating mood and sense of well-being
What’s more, the only practical way to get most of the ingredients in Genesis into your body is supplementation—you wouldn’t want to eat them even if you could.
Genesis is also naturally sweetened and flavored and contains no artificial food dyes, fillers, or other unnecessary junk.
So, if you want more immunity, energy, sex drive, and longevity . . . and less stress, anxiety, and fatigue and a lower risk of disease and dysfunction . . . you want to try Genesis today.
You won’t be disappointed.
In fact, if you don’t absolutely love Genesis, just let us know and we’ll give you a full refund on the spot. No form or return necessary.
You really can’t lose, so order now and get ready to enjoy a stronger, healthier, hardier body with higher energy levels, more libido, and less stress, sickness, and sluggishness.Learn More
If you’ve seen one greens supplement, you’ve basically seen them all.
Most have two fatal flaws:
Despite having many whole-food ingredients, they’re often woefully low in certain essential micronutrients, unnecessarily high in others, and missing some altogether.
They often contain no additional ingredients that can benefit health, performance, or well-being.
Let’s discuss these points in more detail.
It’s easy to assume that a supplement that’s (purportedly) packed full of micronutrients must be healthful.
Unfortunately, the average greens supplement is formulated without rhyme or reason, providing random amounts of a mishmash of micronutrients, including ones we don’t even need to be supplementing.
This is undesirable for a couple reasons.
First, in many cases, if you’re not deficient in a vitamin or mineral, adding more of it into your diet won’t benefit you in any meaningful way.
Furthermore, many greens supplements contain potentially harmful super-doses of certain vitamins and minerals.
For example, greens supplements often boast about how many antioxidants they contain, but research shows that supplementing with large amounts of antioxidants is unlikely to provide any health benefits and may even increase the risk of disease. 
To make matters worse, vitamins and minerals that people tend to be quite deficient in, like vitamins D, K1, and K2, are either underdosed or nonexistent in most greens supplements.
Another problem with many greens supplements is the claim that synthetic forms of vitamins are inherently worse than natural forms or even dangerous.
Most people believe that if something comes from nature, it must be better than something synthetically made.
Hence, the ubiquitous (and meaningless) “all-natural” label found on many food and supplement products.
This is also why it’s often assumed that the more expensive natural forms of vitamins, including whole-food sources, are automatically better than their cheaper synthetic counterparts. Some supplement companies even claim that synthetic vitamins are outright harmful.
The truth, however, is not all natural vitamins are better than synthetic forms, and not all synthetic forms are “bad.”
Some natural vitamins have unique properties that synthetic forms don’t, such as vitamin E, and some synthetic vitamins outperform their natural counterparts, such as synthetic folic acid, which is absorbed better than natural folate.
Thus, when greens supplements brag about containing only natural vitamins and demonize synthetic vitamins, they’re simply preying on our tendency to assume this automatically makes the product healthier or better.
Another sleight of hand used to sell low-quality greens supplements is the claim they “alkalize” your body . . .
The Great “Alkalize Your Body” Hoax
Many greens supplements on the market today feature claims about helping “alkalize” your body.
This is hogwash.
In chemistry, pH is a measure of the acidity of a solution. A pH of less than seven is acidic, while a pH greater than seven is alkaline, and the more acidic a substance is, the more it can react with other substances and cause chemical changes.
The theory behind “alkaline dieting” goes like this:
The body functions best when the pH in your blood stays within a narrow, healthy range, and if your blood pH drops too low for too long, it can cause disease and dysfunction.
Some foods have a high pH (alkaline foods) and some foods have a low pH (acidic foods).
Eating too many acidic foods lowers your blood pH and increases the risk of all kinds of mayhem in your body.
Thus, most alkaline diet protocols recommend you limit your intake of lower-pH foods like meat, poultry, fish, dairy, eggs, sugar, grains, and caffeine, and eat lots of higher-pH ones like fruits, vegetables, legumes, and nuts.
And hey, you could do a lot worse in the kitchen. Ironically, it’s a perfectly healthy way to eat, but not for the reasons you’re told.
Namely, the foods you eat don’t significantly impact the pH of your blood or any organ in your body.
Life on earth requires a tightly controlled pH of about 7.4 in and around cells and living organisms, and a dramatic change toward alkalinity or acidity means certain death. 
The reason foods can’t meaningfully impact blood pH is our body neutralizes their low-pH byproducts with special molecules generally referred to as buffers. This process produces carbon dioxide, which is exhaled through the lungs, and salts, which are disposed of by the kidneys.
Some people claim the kidneys can’t keep up with the “acid load” of a standard, omnivorous diet and the body has to pull minerals from the bones to compensate, but several studies disprove this.
And to the contrary, research also shows that increasing the intake of animal protein, which increases acid load, can even improve bone health, not impair it. 
So why is the food-blood-pH myth still alive and kicking, you’re wondering?
One of the reasons has to do with how food affects the pH of a different bodily fluid—urine.
While the alkaline and acidic byproducts of the food you eat doesn’t significantly influence the pH of your blood, they do change the pH of your urine.
This is why a bale of spinach will make your pee more alkaline than a big ol’ bronto burger—something you can easily verify with a couple pH test strips.
Research shows, however, that the pH level of our urine isn’t a reliable indicator of the pH of our blood or overall health and susceptibility to disease.
In other words, the pH of your urine is neither here nor there as far as your health and longevity is concerned.
So, here’s the bottom line:
You absolutely should eat plenty of alkaline-forming foods in your diet, including fruits, vegetables, nuts, and legumes, but not because they “alkalize” your body or improve your blood pH levels.
They’re just great sources of vitamins and minerals, fiber, carbohydrate, and other nutrients vital to your health and well-being.
Digestive Enzymes, Probiotics, and Prebiotics, Oh My!
Many popular greens supplements make a big deal about the digestive enzymes, probiotics, and prebiotics they contain.
These substances, we’re told, improve our digestion and nutrient absorption and boost immunity, performance, and well-being.
The truth, however, is that they're unlikely to do much of anything unless you have gut problems.
Let’s find out why.
Why You Probably Don’t Need Food Enzymes
Many greens supplements contain digestive enzymes, which are substances produced in the mouth, stomach, and intestines to help break food down into usable nutrients.
The type of enzymes you see most in greens supplements are food enzymes, which are substances found in plant foods.
The theory is that supplementing with enzymes like papain from papaya or bromelain from pineapple “predigests” food, thereby reducing the demand for the body’s own digestive enzymes to fully break the food down.
This, in turn, is supposed to “free up” energy for other bodily processes like “detoxification” and tissue repair. Some companies even claim it can help you lose weight.
Although such claims sound promising and even plausible, there’s a distinct lack of scientific evidence to back any of it up. 
Rather, research shows that digestive enzymes can help people with digestive disorders like pancreatic insufficiency, lactose intolerance, a sensitivity to certain types of carbohydrates, and age-related decline in protein digestion, but most people digest food just fine and won’t benefit from enzyme supplementation. 
That is, except in the case of dysfunction, your body produces all the digestive enzymes it needs and you have little to gain from supplementing with food enzymes.
Why Probiotics Are a Crapshoot
Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts found naturally in your body that support gut function and health.
Many types of bacteria are classified as probiotics, but most fall into one of two groups:
These are found in the digestive, urinary, and genital systems as well as yogurt and other fermented foods.
These are found in the intestines as well as some dairy products.
Scientists are still investigating how probiotics work, but research suggests that probiotic supplementation can be beneficial for people with certain conditions like irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease, and colic, and for the prevention of infectious- and antibiotic-related diarrhea. 
That’s not how probiotics are pitched by many greens supplement sellers, though.
Instead, we’re told probiotic supplementation can benefit everyone in a number of ways, including boosting the immune system, improving digestion and gut health, enhancing mood and weight loss, and more.
Such claims are controversial, unsubstantiated, and, quite frankly, misleading.
In other words, we don’t know how many of these bacteria work just yet and whether they can indeed increase health and well-being in otherwise healthy people, and it’s disingenuous to say otherwise.
As if all of that weren’t enough, there’s another major hurdle to clear with probiotic supplementation: If the bacteria isn’t prepared and stored properly, it dies.
For example . . .
Overheating probiotics kills them
Freeze-drying can kill them
If the wrong delivery system is used, the bacteria die in the stomach before ever reaching the small intestine
So, while probiotic research is an emerging field worth watching and we look forward to learning more, we don’t believe the strains commonly available for inclusion in a greens supplement are worth it.
Why You Need Prebiotics But Don’t Need to Supplement With Them
Prebiotics (also known as soluble fiber) are an indigestible carbohydrate in plant foods, including various fruits, vegetables, and certain grains.
When eaten, prebiotics are fermented in the colon, promoting the growth and activity of “good” gut bacteria that are vital to our overall health and well-being.
Prebiotic intake is one of the reasons why it’s important to eat six to eight servings of fruits and vegetables per day, and why regular consumption of oats has been associated with a reduced risk of various types of disease. 
The American Dietetic Association recommends 14 grams of fiber per 1,000 calories but doesn’t distinguish between soluble and insoluble fiber.  That said, research shows that 2 to 10 grams of soluble fiber per day can improve the cholesterol profile, suggesting this may also be a generally sufficient amount. 
To eat up to 10 grams of soluble fiber per day (or more, which may or may not confer additional health benefits), you need to eat a well-balanced diet that includes plenty of plant-based foods, like fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.
For example, a medium-sized apple contains 1 gram of soluble fiber, a cup of dry oatmeal contains 4 grams, a cup of cooked Brussels sprouts also contains about 4 grams, a banana contains about 0.7 grams, and a cup of green beans contains 1 gram.
Thus, generally speaking, supplementation with prebiotics only makes sense if, for whatever reason, you can’t get enough fiber through your diet.
There’s evidence that supplementation with prebiotics can help people with imbalanced gut flora, but that doesn’t mean it can also help people with healthy guts and nutritious diets.
So, if you don’t have gastrointestinal problems and eat several servings of fruits and vegetables every day, there’s currently no good reason for you to supplement with prebiotics.
What Makes Genesis Special?
When we set out to create Genesis, we wanted it to be far more than a second-rate blend of shoddy fruit and vegetable powders.
Specifically, our goal was to create a greens supplement that not only helped meet general nutritional needs, but also provided a number of benefits particularly important to people living an active lifestyle, including . . .
- Improving physical and mental performance
- Increasing energy levels
- Reducing feelings of anxiety and fatigue
- Promoting feelings of well-being and vitality
- Protecting heart and circulatory health
- Enhancing recovery
- Boosting immunity and longevity
We conducted an extensive review of the scientific literature to find variety of substances known to meet those targets, and we carefully chose a handful that safely deliver consistent results.
The result is the most well-researched and potent greens supplement on the market.
Let’s take a look at the formulation.
Of all the types of vegetables you can eat, “leafy greens” are one of the best because they provide the body with an abundance of molecules known as nitrates.
Nitrates are natural compounds that consist of nitrogen and oxygen atoms, and research shows that they provide physical performance and circulatory benefits. This is why a diet high in nitrates is conducive to long-term heart and circulatory health. 
For our greens blend, we chose spinach, kale, and dandelion leaf because they’re leafy greens rich in nitrates as well as other beneficial compounds, including phytochemicals found in many cruciferous vegetables known as isothiocyanates.
Dandelion is also high in potassium, which many people are deficient in and unable to easily supplement with.
Genesis contains 4 grams of spinach, kale, and dandelion leaf per serving.
As this is a blend of dehydrated powders, it provides the equivalent of approximately one serving of spinach, kale, and dandelion leaf (three servings total).
Remember, however, that our greens blend isn’t intended to replace vegetable intake in your diet—just to supplement it.
Reishi mushroom (also known as lingzhi mushroom) is a mushroom that has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for at least 2,000 years to treat a variety of conditions, including insulin resistance, immune deficiencies, fatigue, and cancer.
It contains a number of molecules have a variety of positive effects in the body, and that’s why research shows that supplementation with reishi mushroom . . .
- Improves sense of well-being
- Helps protect liver health
- Reduces feelings of anxiety and fatigue 
- Protects DNA from oxidative damage, which is a major factor in aging 
- Inhibits the creation of new fat cells 
- Reduces the time it takes to fall asleep 
- Helps protect brain health 
- Improves blood glucose control 
- Raises “good” (HDL) cholesterol levels 
- Boosts and balances the immune system 
- Helps protect kidney health 
- Exerts anti-cancer effects 
The clinically effective dose of reishi mushroom extract is between 1.5 and 5 grams.
Genesis contains 2.5 grams of reishi mushroom extract per serving.
Spirulina is a blue-green algae that’s widely considered one of nature’s richest and most complete sources of vital nutrients.
It’s often used as a vegan source of protein and is particularly abundant in B vitamins, minerals, and essential fatty acids, as well as a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory molecule known as phycocyanobilin.
This is why research shows that supplementation with spirulina . . .
- Improves the cholesterol profile 
- Increases muscle endurance 
- Alleviates congestion caused by allergies 
- Reduces muscle damage caused by exercise 
- Helps the body eliminate heavy metals 
- Lowers blood pressure 
- Helps protect liver health 
- Reduces systemic inflammation 
- Improves insulin sensitivity 
The clinically effective dose of spirulina is between 2 and 10 grams.
Genesis contains 5 grams of spirulina per serving.
Astragalus membranaceus (also known as Mongolian milkvetch) is an herb that has long been used in traditional Chinese medicine to increase stamina, vitality, and longevity, and to treat the cold and flu.
It contains a variety of beneficial molecules such as flavanoids and polysaccharides, but one of the more notable components is known as astragaloside IV, which helps protect cells against oxidative stress.
That’s why research shows that supplementation with Astragalus membranaceus . . .
- Boosts the immune system 
- Helps protect heart health 
- Lowers blood pressure 
- Helps protect kidney health 
There’s also animal research suggesting that Astragalus membranaceus promotes longevity, but this has yet to be explored in human studies. 
The clinically effective dose of Astragalus membranaceus is 15 grams of the root or the equivalent as an extract.
Genesis contains 3 grams of a 5:1 Astragalus membranaceus extract per serving, providing the equivalent of 15 grams of the root.
Moringa oleifera is a fast-growing, drought-resistant, and highly nutritious tree native to South Asia that has long been used in traditional African medicine.
Gram for gram, its leaves contain four times the calcium and two times the protein of milk, three times the potassium in bananas, four times the vitamin A in carrots, and seven times the vitamin C in oranges. 
Moringa oleifera is also rich in potassium, which most people can benefit from due to inadequate intake, and contains various types of phytochemicals known as isothiocyanates, which are thought to be responsible for many of its health benefits.
That’s why research shows that supplementation with Moringa oleifera . . .
- Helps protect heart health 
- Reduces blood pressure 
- Mitigates DNA damage 
- May have anti-cancer effects 
The clinically effective dose of Moringa oleifera ranges between 500 and 2,000 milligrams of the leaf.
Genesis contains 1 gram of Moringa oleifera leaf per serving.
Maca is a plant native to Peru that has been cultivated for thousands of years for its root, which was an integral part of the diet and commerce of the ancient Incan civilization.
It contains several types of molecules known as alkaloids, which cause a number of positive effects in the body and are responsible for maca’s beneficial effects.
Specifically, research shows that supplementation with maca . . .
- Improves subjective sense of well-being 
- Improves sexual function in men and women 
- Improves sperm production and health 
- Improves libido in men and women 
- Helps preserve joint health 
- Can reduce feelings of anxiety and nonclinical depression 
The clinically effective dose of maca extract is between 1 and 3 grams.
Genesis contains 1.5 grams of maca extract per serving.
A broccoli sprout is a young broccoli plant that contains a larger amount of certain beneficial compounds than the adult plant. 
The most potent of these substances is known as sulforaphane, which helps cells protect against disease and dysfunction.
That’s why research shows that broccoli sprout is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory molecule with promising anti-cancer properties. 
The clinically effective dose of broccoli sprout is between 500 and 2,000 milligrams, depending on how much sulforaphane it provides.
Genesis contains 500 milligrams of broccoli sprout per serving.
No Artificial Sweeteners, Flavoring, Food Dyes, or Unnecessary Fillers
If you compare Genesis’s formulation to anything else on the market, you’ll quickly see that it’s second to none.
What makes it even better, though, is what we left out.
While artificial sweeteners may not be as dangerous as some people claim, studies suggest that regular consumption of these chemicals may indeed be harmful to our health and that more research is needed. 
That’s why we’ve chosen to go with the natural sweeteners stevia and erythritol instead.
Research shows that not only are they safe, but they can also confer several health benefits, including better insulin sensitivity, a lower cholesterol profile, improved blood glucose control, potential anti-cancer effects, lower blood pressure and inflammation levels, and more.
Many supplements also contain artificial dyes, known as “azo dyes,” such as FD&C Yellow #5 (also known as tartrazine), FD&C Blue #1 (also known as Brilliant Blue), FD&C Red No. 40 (also known as Allura Red AC), and others.
As with artificial sweeteners, the consumption of azo dyes might not be as harmful as some would have you believe, but there is evidence that these chemicals can cause various negative effects in the body.
And while artificial flavors appear to be benign, they just aren’t necessary. Natural flavors taste equally good.
