COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Are the probiotics in Good Green Stuff still alive and viable?
The best research we have to date shows that the viability of probiotic compounds is good for many months so long as the product is kept relatively cool. Be sure to keep the product in the bottom of the pantry (or even the fridge) to preserve viability.
Can cancer patients take Good Green Stuff?
There is no reason why cancer patients cannot take Good Green Stuff . The formula is designed as an all in one, every day supportive supplement. It provides a comprehensive blend of whole food derived nutrients that simply help to provide a base of great nutrition. This will benefit anyone needing to ensure quality nutrition to support health and recovery (including cancer patients and those undergoing chemotherapy) whilst avoiding any potential problems of megadosing certain vitamins and mineral, which may be a concern. If undergoing chemotherapy please consult with your oncologist if you have any concerns about dietary supplementation.
Can I take Good Green Stuff when pregnant?
There is nothing in Good Green Stuff that is contraindicated for pregnancy. We have designed Good Green Stuff to be a safe, every day formula for all adult populations. Rosemary is contraindicated for pregnancy in high (therapeutic/herbal medical) doses but the miniscule amount in Good Green Stuff is completely safe.
I am currently undergoing chemotherapy, can I use Good Green Stuff?
We always suggest that anyone undergoing heavy drug treatment should consult individually with a suitably qualified health practitioner to discuss their specific needs. Good Green Stuff though, as a whole food based nutritional support formula may help the body to recover from chemotherapy. There is some discussion as to whether antioxidants may inhibit chemotherapy's effectiveness, however this discussion tends to involve the use of isolated and therapeutic doses of antioxidants, not whole food based formulas that provide general support for health and wellbeing.
I am pregnant and am concerned that there is kelp in the formula. Could this effect my thyroid and is it safe during pregnancy?
The amount of kelp contained within Good Green Stuff is approximately 8mg. A standard therapeutic dose is usually over 2000mg. There should be no effect on thyroid from this small amount and it is safe to take during pregnancy. The kelp is included for it's trace nutrients, not for a therapeutic effect.
I am pregnant and taking Good Green Stuff . Does the formula provide enough Folic Acid?
The first thing to understand in answering this question is that Folic Acid, found in most nutritional supplements, is a synthetic form of folate. The body then has to convert this into various metabolites, the most important being L-5 methyltetrahydrofolate (or 5-MTHF), the natural active form used at the cellular level.
One problem with typical folic acid supplements is that some people may have a genetic limitation to their ability to convert folic acid into the active form. Another is that synthetic forms of the vitamin may overload the body with unmetabolised folic acid that may:
Reduce levels of active folates for use as co-enzymes for proper brain function
Reduce the ability of the body to use active folate
Change important gene expression functions of folate dependent enzymes
To be assured of getting the benefits of folic acid Good Green Stuff uses the natural form, L-5 MTHF, directly; not synthetic folic acid.
Common guidelines recommend pregnant women need 400 to 800 mcg of folic acid per day in the very early stages of pregnancy and should keep taking folic acid throughout pregnancy. Good Green Stuff™ provides 330 mcg of added L-5 MTHF. In addition there is the dietary folate present in the whole foods which comprise the bulk of Good Green Stuff™.
The dietary folate derived from your food combined with your daily serve of Good Green Stuff should be adequate. However you should always check with a qualified health practitioner.
Good sources of folate are leafy vegetables such as spinach, asparagus and lettuce; legumes such as peas, beans and lentils, egg yolk and some breakfast cereals. And sunflower seeds, liver and kidney. There are also moderate amounts in fruits including bananas, raspberries, grapefruit, honeydew melon and strawberries. And other vegetables such as broccoli, brussel sprouts and bok choy.
I have been diagnosed with Candida Albicans overgrowth. Can I take Good Green Stuff?
Yes! The prebiotic and probiotic nature of Good Green Stuff makes it a great addition to an anti-candida strategy. The general nutritional support and the ability to support detoxification processes and stress response make it a great choice for you.
I have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Can I take Good Green Stuff?
Yes! Chronic Fatigue is often characterised by dysfunctional stress responses and impaired adrenal function. Good Green Stuff may help the body to respond more effectively to stress in addition to providing general nutritional support.
I have read that many foods and supplements are irradiated. How does this affect the Good Green Stuff formula?
None of the ingredients in Good Green Stuff are irradiated! This would potentially damage the ingredients, reducing nutrient content and potentially causing allergenic problems. We do not irradiate our products.
I have recently been diagnosed with IBS. Would Good Green Stuff help?
Yes! Good Green Stuff will help to encourage more effective digestion due to it's mucilaginous and soothing ingredients (such as slippery elm) and both pre and probiotic ingredients that help to preserve proper levels of benficial bacteria in the bowel. Remember that the addition of foods that contain prebiotics and beneficial fibres can cause urgency or cramping if taken in too great an amount. The body needs a little time to adjust. We suggest starting on a reduced dose (1/2 dessert spoon) for a week and then increasing to the full dose. IBS almost always has other causative factors too, including stress and anxiety. Seek out a naturopath or other practitioner suitable qualified in mind-body aspects of health to address this.
I have several health conditions and am taking a lot of medications. Is it OK for me to take Good Green Stuff?
There can often be drug-herb and drug-food interactions with poly drug use. We always recommend that anyone with a pre-existing condition, and those taking medication consult with a suitably qualified health practitioner before using any nutritional supplement.
I notice Good Green Stuff includes cocoa bean and green tea in the formula. I am sensitive to caffeine, is it OK for me to use the product?
The green tea and cocoa bean are included due to their amazing antioxidant potential. They are high antioxidant containing extracts. This means the relative antioxidant level is higher whilst caffeine content will be diminished in the extraction process. The maximum amount of caffeine that could be expected from this amount of combined green tea and cocoa without extraction would be under approximately 7mg per serve (or about 1/25th of a small brewed coffee!), but in reality the amount would be negligible. Good Green Stuff should be completel
