Why is it in Vitiligo Store?
First of all, the general health benefits of consuming chlorophyl-rich, alkalising foods that are rich in antioxidants are well documented (a quick internet search will confirm this, if you are in any doubt). Among the many reported health benefits, this natural food supplement has been found to boost energy, aid detoxification, improve recovery and mental concentration. It may also lower cholesterol and produce a measurable reduction in biological age. So it is not surprising that clinical and anecdotal evidence supports the commonsense advice passed down to us by our parents - that eating plenty of greens is good for you!
But research also shows that vitiligo sufferers are in even greater need of large daily doses of antioxidant nutrients and enzymes. This is because vitiliginous skin is now known to accumulate abnormally high levels of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and therefore suffers much greater free radical damage than normal skin. Many scientists involved in vitiligo research believe this to be a key mechanism by which pigment is lost. Taking one, or preferably 2 - 3, daily dose/s of Five a Day+V is a quick, convenient way of getting the general health benefits and the additional free radical protection vitiligo sufferers require in order to give the body a chance to heal itself.
How does it work?
Since this product is - strictly speaking - a food, rather than a nutritional supplement, it works in the human body in the same way as eating vegetables but delivers concentrated levels of carefully selected and scientifically balanced nutrients in a fraction of the volume. One 3 gram serving of powder (or 5 capsules, if you prefer this option) provide the equivalent nutritional value of approximately 5 - 7 servings of vegetables (hence the name!).

Tips from The Vit Pro
- Take at least one teaspoonful (or 5 capsules) 1 - 3 times daily, whenever suits you. Mix with water or juice, or include in a smoothie. You can pre-mix and take with you wherever you are going if this is more convenient.
- Five a Day+V is the green food formulation I used, along with Boost Tanning Supplements and moderate sun exposure, to recover from nearly 50 years of widespread vitiligo. The full story of this can be found at thevitpro.com.
- This product is classified as a food and is believed to be as safe for anyone of any age to eat as vegetables are. But, as with anything you try for the first time and for your own peace of mind, please always refer to the standard Advice and Warnings*
