You know the drill—eat your greens for systemic purification and pH balance.

For the past five years, I’ve been on a personal mission to find the purest green formula on the market and I haven’t been completely satisfied until now. UNI KEY’s Daily Greens is heads and shoulders above any greens product on the market for what it does not contain, and for what it uniquely offers.

1. UNI KEY’s Daily Greens does NOT contain sea vegetables that are highly-touted in so many other products on the market. Just take a look at what’s currently on the shelf and you’ll see all varieties of kelp and spirulina. While these sea veggies may be high in trace minerals and micro nutrients, they are also notoriously tainted with radioactive residues and heavy metals like lead, cadmium, mercury and arsenic.

2. UNI KEY’s Daily Greens does NOT contain any fruit juice or fruit juice concentrate—a source of hidden fructose. Fructose has been recently linked to the inability to lose weight, non-alcoholic fatty liver and high LDL, a risk factor for cardiovascular disease. You won’t find any apple juice, grape juice or berry juice in the UNI KEY greens to mask the naturally delicious flavor.

3.  UNI KEY’s Daily Greens does contain 11 organic non-GMO greens hand-picked for their unique nutritional values. It is a real standout in particular because of three key ingredients which you won’t easily find elsewhere.

Celery: As UNI KEY’s Spokesperson and Nutritional Advisor, I insisted that celery be added to the blend because it’s a naturally high source of bio-available vegetable sodium. This type of sodium acts like an adaptogen, helping to lower high blood pressure and balance low blood pressure. It’s also a crucial nutrient for tired adrenal glands and helps us better cope with mental, emotional and physiological stress.

Chlorella: The organic chlorella is also very special because it is hydroponically grown. Unlike other chlorellas on the market it is not grown in a toxic water environment but is hydroponically grown in a special greenhouse. Other types of chlorella are frequently contaminated with aluminum, a toxic mineral associated with Alzheimer’s. It also has a propensity to chelate magnesium from the tissues contributing to constipation, restless legs, irritability and heart palpitations.

Broccoli sprouts: The broccoli sprouts are a rich source of Sulforaphane, a helpful cancer preventative compound.

The Full Scoop

I just know you’re going to love all the organic non-gmo greens that will provide such a delicious boost to your daily regimen. Here’s the nutritional lowdown:

  1. Eveline Klamt

    Has this product gotten gluten-free certification through the Celiac Sprue Association or the Gluten Intolerance Group?

    • Ann Louise Gittleman

      Hi Eveline – The product is not certified through those organizations at this time. Please see my response below regarding its gluten-free status. Thank you!

  2. M

    Am concerned about oxalates. Is this a high oxalate product?

    • Ann Louise Gittleman

      Hi M – The product only contains a small amount of spinach and has been carefully balanced to avoid high oxalate levels. Best, ALG

  3. Kat

    I have celiac. I am concerned about the wheat, barley & oat grass. I’ve read it is almost impossible to keep these grasses separate from their grains. Is this product certified gluten free?

  4. Patti

    I have the same question regarding GF status. Please state if it is GF, so I can buy it if is GF.

    • Ann Louise Gittleman

      Hi Patti – Good question! Gluten is found only in the seed kernel (endosperm) and not in the stem and grass leaves of the wheat plant. The wheat grass and other grasses in the formula are not from the part of the plant containing gluten. Wheatgrass is included because it is an incredibly rich source of nutrients, vitamins and minerals. UNI KEY’s finished product has been tested for gluten and does meet gluten-free standards. I am gluten intolerant and have been using the product for several months without any issue. However, UNI KEY has chosen not to label it as a gluten-free product in order to eliminate ALL risk for those with severe allergies or celiac disease as does contain an ingredient from the wheat plant.

  5. Sandy

    If someone has grass allergies, can they still use this powder with all the “grasses” listed?

    • Team ALG

      Sandy, the people who have taken this formula that do have grass allergies have not been affected. Organic barley juice actually accelerates the rate at which DNA repairs itself.

  6. Marie

    I can’t get past the taste of Daily Greens. Is there a way to make it more palatable? I mixed it with very cold water and added ice, but the taste was very bad. Please help. This is too expensive to throw away.

    • Team ALG

      You can add it to your smoothie for a much more subtle taste. You could start with 1/2 of a scoop and then try the full scoop. I think it is delicious, with just a light celery flavor!

  7. Diana Fraser

    How is taking the Daily Greens better than making my organic green drink in my VitaMix? I vary the greens every week, from parsley and spinach to bok choy and cilantro or dandelion greens and many more!

    • Team ALG

      Diana, it sounds like you are getting many healthy greens already. The Daily Greens are more convenient and faster than preparing all the green veggies and may even be more cost effective. Also this formula has some super greens with detox and healing benefits like chlorella, wheat grass and barley grass.
