Eat your Greens!

It is well known that diet is one of the most important determinants of health and disease and thus it is important to be careful when selecting what foods and supplements we consume. When it comes to our health, fruits and vegetables are the ultimate source of essential phytonutrients and vitamins. In fact, studies have shown that adding just one daily serving of fruits or vegetables to the diet can help to decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease by as much as 7%.1 Leafy green vegetables in particular are associated with a wide range of health benefits, including enhanced immunity and a reduced risk of serious diseases.2

Ultimate Vegan Wild Greens contains a rare mixture of wild-crafted raw greens and incorporates these highly alkaline foods with a unique mixture of incredible nutrient dense wild weeds and a proprietary blend of organic medicinal mushrooms. This one-of-a-kind formula sets an entirely new standard for innovation, purity and health when it comes to purely green foods. Wild Greens is the go-to green food product for anyone interested in taking their health profile to the next level. There is no other green food formula that comes close to its standard.

Wild Greens incorporates the absolute highest quality ingredients into an easily mixable and highly digestible formula that delivers maximal nutritional value to the body. Each raw-crafted ingredient is processed in the gentlest manner and dried at the lowest temperature employed by the industry. This is why each and every ingredient within the formula is a truly raw food.

Not your Run-Of-The-Mill Greens Formula

Wild Greens is far from yet another typical greens formula. It contains a highly unique combination of the highest quality wild-crafted green foods and synergizes them with a unique mixture of incredibly nutrient dense wild weeds and a proprietary blend of organic medicinal mushrooms.

A Note about Wild-Crafted Weeds and Medicinal Mushrooms

Most of the edible weeds that we have grown to despise for messing up our gardens and yards are highly nutritious. They are some of hardiest plants around - this is why they are so hard to get rid of. These weeds are high in mineral content and are extremely high in antioxidants when compared to commonly eaten vegetables, fruits and beverages.3 In fact, a serving of wild greens contains 12 times more of the beneficial antioxidant quercetin than a glass of red wine!3 

Whether you are interested in increasing your energy profile or warding off serious diseases, medicinal mushrooms have been shown to be some of nature’s most powerful weapons. Although there are dozens of wild mushrooms that offer incredible health benefits to the body and mind, Wild Greens contains a carefully chosen blend of six of the most powerful ones (Cordyceps, Red Reishi, Nin-chang-chih, Himematsutake, Lion’s mane and Maitake). Mushrooms contain active compounds called β-glucans which have been shown to be powerful immune system modulators. These compounds can help to boost the immune system and reduce inflammation and disease.4 All of the mushrooms in Wild Greens are 100% organic and are grown on certified organic oats to ensure the highest nutritional value.

Ingredients: Organic Grasses (Organic Barley Grass, Organic Alfalfa Grass, Organic Wheat Grass, Organic Oat Grass), Organic Mushrooms [Cordyceps (Cordyceps militaris), Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum), Nin-chang-chih (Antrodia camphorata), Himematsutake (Agaricus blazei), Lion’s Mane (Hericium erinaceus) and Maitake (Grifola frondosa); mycelial biomass cultivated on organic oats], Organic Apple, Organic Berry Flavours, Organic Spinach, Organic Acerola Berry, Organic Kale, Organic Parsley, Organic Green Cabbage, Organic Broccoli, Organic Blueberry, Organic Schisandra Berry Extract.

Add 1 full serving (2 scoops - 8.26g) into one cup (240ml) of cold water or juice and blend, or as directed by a health care practitioner

Can I get a nutritional breakdown of your Vegan Organic Wild Greens?

Since this product contains organic wild ingredients the nutritional content/nutrient levels will vary from batch to batch and would have to be tested each time.  In order to keep the cost of the product as low as possible, Preferred Nutrition has chosen not to do the nutritional testing each time.  Comparative products on the market will not guarantee the levels in their blends either - as values are always inevitably going to change (due to flux in crop availability, seasonality, etc).

What is the carb count the Ultimate Vegan Organic Wild Greens?

Each serving size (8.26g) contains 6g of carbohydrates.

What is the calcium content in your Ultimate Organic Wild Greens formula?

Calcium in this formula is found only in trace amounts.  All organic vegetables contain calcium, however the amount is very small and any natural organic minerals - including calcium - are in balanced ratios (as provided by nature, NOT by man!).  The vegetables in Ultimate Wild Greens also contain high amounts of natural Vitamin K - which is needed to transport calcium away from arteries and into bone structure.

What are the "organic berry flavours" in Ultimate Vegan Organic Wild Greens, and why are they in there?

The organic flavours are extracted from 100% organic elderberry and they are in the formula to offset any bitterness of the wild-weed blend.

Can Vegan Organic Wild Greens replace my vitamin/mineral regime?

As incredible as the Ultimate Vegan Wild Greens formula is, it (or any other Greens formula for that matter!) cannot replace the extra cellular-insurance that a properly formulated multi vitamin can offer. 

Why is there ascorbic acid in your Ultimate Vegan Organic Wild Greens?

The ascorbic acid is in this formula purely as a means to protect all the ingredients from degrading.  As Ultimate Vegan Wild Greens is a highly pure and raw formula, ingredients are more susceptible to degradation without a powerful free radical scavenger like ascorbic acid to protect them and to help keep their purity.

What is the source of the ascorbic acid in this formula?

We have confirmation on file that the source of the ascorbic acid is from non-GMO corn.

Is Ultimate Vegan Organic Wild Greens maltodextrin free?

Yes, this formula is 100% maltodextrin free.

Are the greens used in Vegan Organic Wild Greens sustainably harvested?

Yes, all the ingredients used in our Ultimate Wild Greens formula are sustainably harvested. 

Is this greens formula safe for children?

The formula should be completely safe for children, however there are no studies that have been done on children or women who are pregnant.  The age to start using this formula is up to the parent's discretion.

Is Ultimate Vegan Organic Wild Greens GMO free?

Yes, we have received confirmation that Vegan Organic Wild Greens is free of any genetically modified organisms.

Is Ultimate Vegan Organic Wild Greens gluten free?

No, Vegan Organic Wild Greens is not gluten free.  We have confirmation on file that there is a gluten source added to this product.

Are Brad King's products WADA certified?

No, we do not have an official WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency) designation or release on our Ultimate products by Brad King.

Can I add my powdered product to hot water in order to help it dissolve better?

Adding your powdered product to room temperature or slightly warmer water to dissolve it before adding it to juice or cold water should be fine, however we do not recommend adding it to boiling or very hot water because by doing so will likely affect its efficacy.

I have purchased a powdered product, but it went very hard on me.  Do you know how I can make it soft again?  Is this common?

This is common especially if the lid is not tightly secured after each use since there is then the possibility of moisture getting into the container.  Moisture in the container causes the product to clump and/or go hard. Try using a spoon to help break up the product and make sure you secure the lid tightly after each use.  There are desiccants in the product that are intended to help with this issue as well.

Why isn't my container of powdered product full?  Am I being ripped off?

When the containers are initially filled they are actually full, however once the product has been sealed and shipped out, the contents of the container (the powder in this case) will begin to settle and become more compressed and then, upon opening, it will appear that the powder is no longer filling the whole container or that the containers we are using are too big.  This is not the case, and it is quite normal for any powdered product to settle during shipping.  You can rest assured that each scoop of powder will still contain the nutritional information, exactly as indicated on the label.

Can I add my powdered product to hot water in order to help it dissolve better?

Adding your powdered product to room temperature or slightly warmer water to dissolve it before adding it to juice or cold water should be fine, however we do not recommend adding it to boiling or very hot water because by doing so will likely affect its efficacy.

Why do you no longer supply shaker cups for your greens drinks?

We made the decision not to print any more shaker cups because they stain easily and more importantly, they are not environmentally friendly.

Do all of your products have an NPN?

Yes, all of our products have been issued a Natural Product Number (NPN) by Health Canada – these numbers do appear on our labels.  Further Natural Health Product criteria and information can be found on the Health Canada website www.hc-sc.gc.ca  Under the Food and Drugs Act items that are considered a food – for example, our protein powders and herbal teas – do not require an NPN. 

Are your products GMO free?

Confirmation for many products has been listed separately as to whether or not GMOs are present in the formula or if any ingredients have come from a genetically modified source.  If nothing is indicated on the FAQs then we are still in the process of having testing done and the product information will be updated once complete.  This information will be updated on our website, as well as on our product information sheets and on our labels.  This will be done as quickly as possible and on a product-by-product basis.

Why have your cautions and your recommended/suggested usages changed so dramatically on many of your labels?

The changes you are noticing to our suggested usage and cautionary statements have been at the directive of Health Canada.  There have been many regulatory changes with regards to Natural Health Products causing companies to change their labels accordingly.  We update our website, product information sheets and labels on the actual products to reflect these regulations as quickly as we possibly can.  Health Canada and the industry representing natural health products act according to the interest of consumers and their safety.  As a result, if there is any concern with an existing condition, a caution is added to advise the consumer to seek out feedback from their Health Care professional. 

Will this product help me lose weight?

There is no such thing as a "magic" pill or product - the only way to succeed (and maintain) true weight loss is by adopting a healthy lifestyle combining adequate exercise and proper nutrition. If you are concerned about poor eating habits or cravings, then we recommend you seek advice from a Nutritionist or Naturopath to obtain some guidance on healthy eating, as well as to investigate possible underlying (or undiagnosed) hormonal imbalances, which can make it harder to lose weight.  You might also want to consider speaking with a personal trainer to help you discover a fun fitness program that you enjoy - because, no matter what, in order to achieve and maintain any type of weight loss, exercise is required.  Our vitamins and supplements are designed to help you in your quest to a daily, healthy lifestyle, however it also requires effort on your part.

Where do you source your products from? 

Please be advised that all of our ingredients, including flavourings, are derived from natural ingredients and are ISURA tested & certified (in order to ensure the absence of GMOs, contaminants, heavy metals and adulteration).  All of our products are manufactured at a GMP facility certified by Health Canada.  All raw materials come in and are tested for purity, safety and potency.  If they do not meet our standards they are rejected and sent back or destroyed.  We use the highest quality ingredients available, and choose organic whenever we can.  Many of our products contain proprietary patented ingredients that have been clinically researched to help deliver optimal results and outstanding quality.

Are your products gluten free?

Confirmation for many products has been listed separately as to whether or not gluten is added and/or present in the formula.  If nothing is indicated on the FAQs then we are in the process of having gluten testing done and the product information will be updated once complete.  Please be advised however that our manufacturing facility is NOT a gluten free facility.

Are your products peanut free?

Following compliance with food regulations, in order to make a negative claim such as "peanut free", it would be necessary to insure a zero tolerance of any peanut traces, including the possibility of cross contamination.  Although our manufacturing facility has a policy in place for allergen control, there is no specific policy for peanuts, nor is there a specific "no peanut agreement" with our raw material suppliers.

Can your products be used after the expiry date has passed?

Supplements generally keep their potency long after the expiry date.  There is certainly no safety issues with consuming after the expiry date has passed however the potency degrades over longer periods of time.

Are any of your products "vegan-friendly"?

Yes, AdrenaSense, EstroSense, MenoSense, BioSil, Medi-C Plus, Magnesium and MagSense (from our WomenSense and Preferred Nutrition product lines), the Healing Teas, our Ultimate Maca Energy products and the Ultimate VEGAN line are all vegan friendly.

Why can't I find any prices on your website?

Preferred Nutrition is the wholesale distribution company for the products on this website. However we sell exclusively to Health Food stores & selected Natural Pharmacies across Canada, not directly to the general public.  Because the prices of our products can vary from store-to-store, we are unable to list our suggested prices on our website.  We recommend you contact your local retailer and inquire about prices directly with them.

Can I purchase products directly from you?  I went to a health food store and the prices seem very expensive.

We distribute our products in Canada only and we sell directly to Health Food stores - since they have a personal commitment to the natural health lifestyle.  Consumers are then able to buy our products from knowledgeable staff that are genuinely interested in helping people be well - people who care!  Always be sure to look for in store promotions or coupons when you are making your purchases as this can help alleviate your cost concerns.

Do all health food stores carry all of your products?

To find Health Food stores in your area that carry our products, please click on "Store Locator" at the top of this screen.  All you have to do is enter your postal code and you will be given a list of retailers in the radius that you choose. We do recommend calling ahead to see if they stock the item you are looking for and in most cases if a store does not normally carry something, they will offer to do a special order for you.

Are any of your products tested on animals?

No, there is no animal testing on any of our products.

Should your supplements be taken with or without food?

Most of our products will specify directly on the bottle whether they should be taken with a meal or not.  If nothing is stated, then the choice is yours as to when the best time is for you to take them.  In general, however, most vitamin supplements should be taken with food because once eating starts the digestive process, enzymes and gastric juices are generated and usually the nutrients will be absorbed and assimilated better.

I like the sound of many of your products.  Am I able to take different formulas at the same time?

Yes, it's safe to combine various WomenSense products to help support the body in achieving optimal health.  The same applies to the Preferred Nutrition line, Dr. Whitaker's formulas and Brad King's.  If you are unsure of any combination, then please consult your Health Care Practitioner.

I have heard that drinking green tea along with my supplements will end up flushing out all the nutrients?  Is this true?

No, you are fine taking your supplements with green tea.  Coffee inhibits the absorption of nutrients, but the caffeine in green tea will not pose the same problem.

Can you tell me if I can combine any of your supplements with the medication(s) I am on, as prescribed by my doctor?

It is best to consult your Doctor or alternative Health Practitioner before taking any new supplements while on prescribed medication.  If you have been approved to add our supplement(s) to your daily regime, then we do recommend that you space the medication and the supplements out by at least one hour.

Can I take your products when I am pregnant or breastfeeding?

We are not able to make any recommendations with any of our products when it comes to pregnancy or while nursing.  You must contact your Health Practitioner, Naturopath or Pharmacist.

I understand that you put a recommended dosage on your labels, but I can take more or less than that, right?  And, really, do I have to take the product every day?

With regards to the recommended dosage, we would suggest you speak to your Doctor or Health Care Practitioner before increasing any amounts.  As with any supplement you can determine your amount based on your personal preference - if you find that a product works for you immediately then you should be fine to take it just on the days you feel you need it, but again we suggest you discuss this with you MD or HP.  Some consumers find that a product needs to be in their system for a few days to a few weeks before they notice results and/or feel the full benefits. 

I don't understand why when I purchase your product and open the bottle, the contents don't even fill 1/2 of the packaging that is being used?

The containers we use are determined based on product fill and required label information, as well as capsule count when/where applicable.  Sometimes we do have to use a larger bottle than seems necessary because of the information required on the labels - requirements both from Health Canada and in order for the label to be clear and legible to our consumers.  Also, in a case where we are offering larger volume (ie/ 400g versus 200g or 180 capsules versus 90 capsules), then we have to put the contents in a bigger container in order for there to be differentiation on the shelf.

What is your 100% money-back (customer satisfaction) guarantee?

Our 100% money-back/customer satisfaction guarantee ensures that if a customer is not completely satisfied with their purchase, they can return the unused portion of the product (in its original packaging) back to their point of purchase and we will credit the Health Food store 100% of their purchase price from us.  We cannot dictate if a store will give cash back or an in-store credit, nor can we override store policies already in place ~ but we do promise to credit them, regardless of the reason for the return.
