PINES Wheat Grass is the young wheat plant, grown under optimum conditions, carefully harvested at it’s nutritional maximum, dehydrated, and bottled for your convenience. For more FAQs and details, click on the following links:
Of all the FAQs, we like responding to this one the most. That’s because for 40 years, Pines has worked hard to promote organic farming. In the early 1980s, we helped write the organic standards for Kansas, that later were used as one of the models for the national standards. Pines was the first green superfood company to qualify to put the USDA Logo on our products. We have also now be approved to use the Non-GMO Project Verification on all our products. Our alfalfa was the first to pass genetic testing and is the only one in the marketplace to carry that logo.
The contents of PINES Green Duo Capsules are 100% organic. The capsules themselves are vegetarian and vegan. We continue to look, but so far we have not been able to find capsules that are registered as certified organic.
Or put another way: what can eating enough green vegetables every day do for you?
Eating More Greens Protects Your Health
Hundreds of private and government studies suggest that increased consumption of vegetables may reduce incidence of cancer and heart disease, and lead to fewer health problems across the board. However, if you are in among the 9 of every 10 people who fail to eat at least 3-5 servings of vegetables every day, you clearly could use a convenient source of greens.
Economical & Convenient
PINES Wheat Grass is that source. In less than a minute a day and for about 25 cents, you can have a serving of a nutritious dark green vegetable. How is that possible? PINES Wheat Grass is nutritionally equivalent to a spinach salad, but much more concentrated.
How much more? Seven tablets or one teaspoon of powder supplies about the same nutrition as a serving of spinach.*
Our products are guaranteed, so give them a try for a month and see how you feel. If you’re not satisfied, we’ll refund your purchase price. It’s that simple.
7 tablets or 1-1/4 teaspoon of powder (3.5 grams) is the recommended serving size.
Six Green Duo Capsules are a serving.
Our serving sizes are based on a 50 gram serving of spinach. Nutritionists recommend at least three servings of vegetables per day, especially dark green leafy ones like those from PINES. The benefits of eating your greens every day come from consistency over time. That’s why we emphasize the convenience of our products. Even if you don’t eat spinach every day, PINES products are convenient and economical ways to increase your vegetable nutrition.
The USDA’s new MyPlate says that you should eat more vegetables than any other food. It really doesn’t matter when you eat your vegetables. Other primates such as gorillas are massive and strong animals with similar digestives systems to ours. They eat massive quantities of green. That is why nearly every health professional and even the government says vegetables should be the foundation for health.
Eat Your Veggies Before, After or With Your Meals
You may want to consume PINES Wheat Grass (or PINES Barley Grass, PINES Alfalfa, Green Duo or Mighty Greens) between meals with a good amount of water or other liquid. This helps your body take full advantage of the nutrients without competing with other foods, and may also take the edge off your hunger so you don’t eat as much at meals. Mid-morning and mid-afternoon are great times for a green energy pick-me-up.
However, what’s most important is that you use our greens at a whatever time that is convenient for you, including before, with or after your meal. The important point is that you eat plenty of greens every day. For some people, that means right away in the morning, or right before bed. That way you are sure to start or end your day on a healthy note.
