NP Nutra announced the debut of its new organic Oat Grass Powder, adding to its NutraGreen product line of high-quality green ingredients. Oat Grass Powder comes as a fine, green powder, ready for use in supplements and functional products.
Rich in chlorophyll and antioxidant potential, Oat Grass (Avena sativa) is endowed with many vitamins and minerals like vitamins A, B, C, D and K, iron, zinc and manganese. Also rich in protein and pantothenic acid, the components of Oat Grass may contribute to overall health and maintaining healthy blood counts.
Chlorophyll, the molecule that converts sunlight to energy in plants, is similar in structure to the heme in hemoglobin, the iron-containing cell that transports oxygen throughout the body. Thus, studies have shown that consuming chlorophyll-rich foods like Oat Grass may be beneficial to maintaining healthy blood counts. In addition, studies have shown that chlorophyll may contribute to the antioxidant benefits of green foods like Oat Grass.
With the demand for green ingredients reaching an all time high, NP Nutra’s Oat Grass powder adds to its range of certified organic green ingredients that features popular products like Wheatgrass Powder, Barley Grass Juice Powder, Alfalfa Grass Powder, Spirulina Powder and Cracked Cell Chlorella Powder.
