Review: AlkaVision GreenShield
This product, like so many others in this price range (under $4 per oz), is very heavy in grasses, which are great for some basic nutrients, but they are not the most nutrient-rich of the botanical ingredients available for green formulas. The mint leaves have some excellent qualities, but they are mostly for flavor (covering up the grassy taste of all those grasses). The aloe and dandelion are excellent additions and should be higher on the list (more of them). The other interesting ingredient in this mixture is the clay, which is usually used for cleansing and detoxing. Clay pulls the toxins out of your intestinal tract as it passes through (it has no nutritional value in itself). Some would argue that you should not mix clay with nutritional ingredients, as the clay pulls the nutrients out along with the toxins. There is some debate over that, but most likely, at lease some of the nutrients get digested before the clay starts drawing elements out. Still, this is a strange formula, if well priced at $3.75 per ounce.
