In Dr. Perricone’s latest book, Ageless Face, Ageless Mind (Ballantine Books 2007), he states:
Green Magma’s® nutrients versus vegetables: (p. 43-44) “When the nutrient content of single servings of Green Magma were compared to the nutrient content of single servings of different vegetables, Green Magma was found to contain greater amounts of vitamin A, vitamins C, B1, B2, B3, B6, pantothenic acid, magnesium, and calcium than nine or more of the ten vegetables measured.”
For those on low-carbohydrate diets: (p. 44) “It is important to note that Green Magma is lower in carbohydrates than is the quantity of vegetables needed to provide the same amounts of essential nutrients as Green Magma. This is an important consideration for people on low-carbohydrate diets and for those concerned about their weight, since we know that body mass is directly linked to insulin resistance, which I linked to refined carbohydrate consumption.”
His daily regimen: (p. 42) “For my own regimen, I take both Green Magma and Veggie Magma every day. The powerful anti-inflammatory antioxidants in these products provide a very targeted antidote to AGE formation and AGE prevention.”

Why barley grass?
Dr. Yoshihide Hagiwara MD, renowned pharmacologist and geenfoods pioneer, found that the concentrated green juice from young barley grass contains a perfect balance of phytonutrients.
Dr. Hagiwara graduated from Kumamoto University in Japan and early in his career, developed several highly successful drug formulas. Though his extensive research and business sense, he became the head of one of the leading Japanese pharmaceutical companies.
As Dr. Hagiwara grew aware of the problems caused b the many chemicals used in modern medicine, he vowed to devote his life to a natural, nutritional approach to health. After years of research on over 200 types of edible vegetables and green plant leaves, he found that “young barley grass is one of the most nutritionally balanced foods in nature.”
In order to capture and protect the delicate nutrients and enzymes in freshly harvested young barley grass, he developed a unique extraction and spray-dry process that earned him Japan’s prestigious Science and Technology Award.
Researchers at such leading universities as the University of California at Davis and George Washington University have found that barley grass juice contains the potent antioxidants beta-carotene, vitamin C, superoxide dismutase, lutonarin, saponarin (GIV) and vitamin E succinate. Each of these important phytochemicals has been shown to help prevent oxidation caused by free-radicals
