San Francisco, CA – In response to busier lifestyles and poor dietary habits that prevent most people from getting their 5+ daily servings of fruits and vegetables, Amazing Grass has launched new, certified Organic Green SuperFood Energy Bars that feature a premium blend of nature's most nourishing and delicious SuperFoods. The energy bars provide health conscious consumers with a more potent, convenient and affordable way to satisfy their hunger and deliver nutrients to their bodies the way Mother Nature intended – unprocessed, organic and delicious. Amazing Grass combined their alkalizing Organic Green SuperFood powder with antioxidant rich fruits and vegetables and nutritious organic nuts and seeds to create the Whole Food Energy Bar and Chocolate Whole Food Energy Bar. Like all Amazing Grass products, the new whole food energy bars are cold processed, raw, gluten free, dairy free and vegan.

Amazing Grass Green SuperFood powder has a high concentration of naturally-occurring enzymes, carotenoids, phytonutrients and antioxidants that work synergistically to fight free radicals, remove toxins and repair damaged cells. Ultimately, Amazing Grass contains every amino acid, vitamin, and mineral necessary to sustain human life. Since the human body is designed to get nutrition from whole foods, the body is able to efficiently and rapidly absorb the nutrients in Green SuperFood and quickly convert them to fuel.
For the majority of people, stress and consumption of unhealthy processed foods can create an acidic imbalance in the blood that, among other problems, can cause the body to store water and build up fat in the arteries (cholesterol) as protection from acidic blood. The rich chlorophyll content and high alkalinity of Amazing Grass Green SuperFood helps to combat acidity and restore blood to the optimal pH level. It also promotes improved circulation, digestion and regular elimination.
The Amazing Grass Green SuperFood blend is a unique and potent combination of nature’s most nourishing, cleansing and rebuilding green superfoods including more than 70% certified organic ingredients and an enhanced digestive enzyme and active probiotic blend to improve nutrient absorption. Amazing Grass Green SuperFood combines nutrient dense green food concentrates with other uniquely powerful ingredients like açaí and maca. Sambazon Acai, is a purple berry loaded with antioxidants, healthy omega fats, fiber and protein that grows in the Amazon Rainforest; and maca is a nutritious root grown at high altitudes in Peru that is known to be an adaptogen that boosts the immune system and provides sustained energy, vitality and mental clarity. The Amazing Grass Green SuperFood blend also provides more organic whole leaf greens per gram than any leading green superfood mix, and unlike many others, it contains no soy lecithin fillers.
Amazing Grass’ mission is to educate the world about the benefits of green superfoods and the improved quality of life from healthy eating habits. In addition to the new Whole Food Energy Bars and Green Superfood Drink Powder, Amazing Grass offers organic Wheat Grass in drink powder and tablet forms, Green SuperFood Chocolate Drink Powder and Kidz SuperFood Chocolate Drink Powder. Amazing Grass products are widely available around the country and at www.AmazingGrass.com. The company’s popular GrassHeads program offers auto shipping along with discounts and other cool swag.
Amazing Grass is a friends- and family-owned company with roots that date back over 60 years of growing and dehydrating green foods. The company produces certified organic wheat grass, barley grass, oat grass, rye grass and alfalfa at a family farm in Kansas, and markets the most nutritious, convenient and affordable green superfoods to help families thrive. Amazing Grass stands out because the grasses are field-grown throughout the winter allowing the roots to soak up nutrients from mineral-rich soil for over 6 months. “The young leaves are harvested just one time each year at their nutritional peak,” says President Brandon Bert. "The greens are carefully flash dehydrated at low temperatures, frozen as whole leaf powders and then packed in nitrogen to maintain freshness. The extra steps ensure customers get the most nutrient-dense raw green food powders in the world," adds Bert.
