Giving You A More Effective and Economic Green Alkalizing Tonic
Green superfoods are some of the most alkalizing ingredients on the planet. Consuming them regularly can help support your body’s ability to stay consistently alkaline which encourages good health.
Benefits of having an alkaline body include:
- Strong, thick, healthy hair
- Clear, healthy skin and eyes
- Reduced food cravings
- Improved sleep patterns
- Healthy functioning immune system
- Increased energy levels – for better vitality and enhanced performance
- Optimized digestive health and reduced occurrences of digestive concerns
- Healthy weight management due to proper elimination of toxins instead of storing them as fats
- Strong bones because of reduced leaching of calcium from bones (which happens in an acidic environment)
Zupafood GREENZ is a culmination of years of research and formulation. Containing over 2,800 mg of alkalizing wholefoods, it is designed to help your body maintain good nutrition and pH balance.
As with all Xtend-Life products, we always strive to provide products of higher quality and better value than anything else on the market. Zupafood GREENZ is no exception. It is a rich source of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, phytonutrients and chlorophyll, and has been formulated in scientifically calculated ratios to ensure maximum support for health, wellness and vitality. All-natural and easily absorbed, it helps to optimize the function of all 11 of your body’s systems; the digestive, endocrine (hormonal), integumentary (hair, skin & nails), circulatory and nervous system to name a few.
Zupafood GREENZ is suitable for vegetarians and vegans and is free from gluten, dairy, soy, nuts, additives or preservatives.
Kiwifruit has a number of health benefits. Our New Zealand superfood blend contains kiwifruit in two forms (Kiwifruit Extract and Kiwifruit Powder). One as a freeze-dried powder and another in the form of a special extract which provides highly concentrated actives, including phenolics and enzymes, which help support healthy digestion. We use both of these forms in our Kiwi-Klenz supplement product.
Grape Seed Extract
The Grape Seed Extract used in the Xtend-Life superfood blend is all produced in New Zealand from grapes harvested in the Marlborough area of the South Island. The UV light from the sun is very intense and amongst the strongest in the world (due to the low level of ozone above New Zealand). As a result, nature has adapted the grapes grown in this region to have greater antioxidant concentrations than grapes grown in other parts of the world. This is nature’s way of protecting the grapes. Also, the extraction process used for these grapes uses only water, not ethanol. Ethanol is the method used primarily in other parts of the world, and unlike this unique water extraction process, ethanol extraction destroys some of the valuable elements of the grape seed.
Red Grape Skin Extract
This is a quite a unique grape skin extract, and it is rarely used in supplements because very little is produced. What makes it different?This is grown in New Zealand, and the extract is produced from non-fermented grapes. Usually grape skin extract is produced from the skins of grapes that have already been fermented during the process of making of red wine. This means that they have lost their deep purple color and have been bleached white. Ethanol is also used in the extraction process.
The grape skin extract that Xtend-Life uses is from non-fermented grapes and uses a unique water extraction process. Laboratory tests on the extract prove that the extract contains 20 actives while ‘normal’ grape skin extract only has around 4!
Organic Wheat Grass
Wheat grass contains a wide spectrum of vitamins and minerals – including 13 essentials, along with dozens of other trace elements and enzymes. Wheat grass also contains P4D1 – a "gluco-protein" that supports circulation and the immune system.Wheat grasshas been shown to support your body’s natural defenses, balance blood sugar and help maintain liver health and function – just to name a FEW of the amazing benefits! The wheat grass found in the Zupafood™ ELITE formula is certified organic. So you can be certain you’re getting high quality, pure wheat grass for optimal health and wellness! And since wheat grass is gluten-free – it’s safe to take if you have wheat allergies or sensitivities.
Organic Barley Grass
Barley grass acts as a free radical scavenger that may support circulation and healthy cholesterol levels. Barley grass also contains an exceptional amount of or
Spirulina helps support the immune system’s healthy inflammation management processes. It is a good source of gamma-linoleic acid (GLA) – which further helps maintain and support a healthy immune system. The benefits of spirulina and chlorella are well known and most superfood products produced for general health should contain them. In our GREENZ formula we have included 3,200 mg of organic spirulina and 481 mg of organic chlorella in each serving.
Chlorella is a natural cleanser for your cells! This can be a real benefit, as it helps support the body’s healthy waste management process. Chlorella also helps promote healthy gut flora and therefore a healthy digestive system while also helping to increase energy levels and even support your mood! Our Zupafood Elite and Greenz contains chlorella vulgaris – a superior form of broken cell wall chlorella – which has been meticulously pulverized and delicately processed to ensure the powerful nutrients in chlorella are digestible and bio-available.
For Additional Energy
Although many of these ingredients above can help with sustained energy throughout the day, we know from experience that we sometimes need that extra energy boost.
We have included a high quality green tea extract with natural caffeine to help stimulate a mild natural ‘buzz’. Green tea also provides a number of other health benefits. We included 75 mg of this extract in every serving.
Green Tea Extract
Along with general health benefits, the Green Tea Extract in our Zupafood™ delivers a natural energy boost. That is because one of the actives in green tea is natural caffeine. However this green tea extract contains a low dose of caffeine that doesn’t cause the “jittery” effects associated with caffeine found in coffee – yet still gives you an energy boost. Additionally, green tea extract contains the amino acid L-theanine –that helps improve your mood. Studies show that combining caffeine and L-theanine can have positive, synergistic effects – giving you a mild, natural “buzz” to keep you mentally and physically focused.
For Your Bones
We are aware that many people including men, women and children of all ages may have low levels of calcium. Often they take calcium supplements. The most common option is calcium carbonate, which is basically limestone or chalk. The bio-availability of these supplements is very poor and there may be a risk of a build-up in the cardiovascular system. We have sourced a unique form of plant calcium from marine algae called Aquamin TG, and we include 400 mg in every serving, which has the calcium benefits of eating most of a cup of raw spinach every day and can help maintain healthy calcium levels in your body.
Aquamin® TG Marine Calcium
Aquamin® TG Calcium is extracted from a marine plant source that is rich in natural calcium, magnesium and 74 other trace minerals including zinc, iron and selenium. Aquamin® TG Marine Calcium is produced from the red algae, Lithothamnion species – which is only found in three remote areas around the world. During its growth phase, these algae absorb essential minerals directly from the sea – giving Aquamin® TG its unique and potent multi-mineral content.
Has to Taste Good
Of course it is all very well to have the best possible blend of ‘super’ ingredients but because it is not practical to put them in capsules, as you would need to take around 15 capsules per day to get optimal amounts of the ingredients (in our GREENZ) we had to supply it in an easy to drink packet which you could mix with water or your favorite beverage. SO...it had to taste good.
Sweetening a superfood is quite easy by using stevia, which is a natural sweetener (we would not use sugar). But, to get an acceptable flavor is not easy unless an artificial flavor is used. However, we were under strict instructions from our Founder and Chairman Warren Matthews NOT to use anything artificial.
He didn’t care how much extra it cost, but he insisted that we use natural flavors only. So, we had to develop our own special natural flavors using real fruit by spray-drying the fruit and concentrating it so we could end up with a great tasting product. After many trials, we successfully developed natural flavors for all our Zupafood™ products.
For Zupafood™ GREENZ, the flavor is Green Mango…made from real mangos!

What are the differences between each of the three Zupafoods?
All Zupafood versions contain the special Xtend-Life 'Superfood' blend which contains organic fruit extracts including kiwifruit, grape seed and red grape skin extracts that are rich in enzymes and antioxidants for overall health support. The second part of the blend is Green Tea Extract to provide a natural and sustained energy boost. Thirdly, all three versions also contain Aquamin® TG Marine Calcium, a naturally sourced marine collagen, rich in calcium, zinc and iron, along with many other valuable minerals to support the entire body.
The GREENZ version contains an organic green superfood blend including chlorella, barley grass and wheat grass. This is valuable for supporting digestive health and encouraging a gentle detoxification of the body. This is the most basic and affordable option and best for those looking to support their digestive health and energy levels. The ELITE version also contains the green superfood blend, but with many other added ingredients for additional and more specialized support.
The SKIN version does not contain the green superfoods, but has ingredients specifically for enhancing the health of the skin from the within. Zupafood SKIN contains a unique and naturally sourced collactive collagen, rich in elastin polypeptides offering deep hydration to firm and nourish the skin. This product is recommended for those wanting targeted support to help reduce wrinkles, fine lines and uneven skin tone.
The ELITE version was developed for those wanting the optimal support and contains the largest array of ingredients; its slightly higher price reflects this. As well as the superfood base blend, it contains the benefits of the ingredients in both the GREENZ and SKIN blends. In addition, it includes a unique and high potency medicinal mushroom blend to support energy levels, cardiovascular health, immunity, the libido and to help fight the signs of aging. ELITE is the best choice for those wanting maximum benefits and that do not have budget concerns.
Can my child use Zupafood?
As all the ingredients in Zupafood are sourced from 'foods' all the versions are suitable for children from 6 years old. As many children struggle to eat leafy green vegetables, Zupafood GREENZ would be a great way to 'top-up' their intake of greens every day. We would advise starting on this blend, as the ingredients in the SKIN and ELITE versions should not generally be needed for a young child.
What is the difference between Zupafood GREENZ and the other Zupafood products in the range?
Our Zupafood GREENZ contains much more Spirulina and chlorella than the other two Zupafood products. It is a product focused on detoxification and providing plenty of chlorophyll to help alkalize the body. This product is best suited to someone with those concerns, and who has a poor diet with a low vegetable intake.
What are the main benefits of Zupafood GREENZ?

What is the recommended dosage for Zupafood?
The recommended dose of Zupafood is one sachet per day. However, if desired it is perfectly acceptable to have 2 or 3 sachets per day of any of our Zupafood products, combining the three varieties is also okay.
Can I use more than one Zupafood version at the same time?
Yes, you are free to use more than one Zupafood version at the same time, depending on your needs. For instance, you may wish to support your skin and therefore use the SKIN version once per day, to then provide support to the digestive system and detoxification you may then take one sachet of GREENZ per day as well. This would be a good option for those with budget concerns or who do not require the medicinal mushroom blend offered by ELITE.
Depending on your needs you may also use our Zupa Protein GREENZ with Banana in conjunction with the other Zupafood options. This is a great option for those that are looking to supplement their dietary intake of protein with a bioavailable, high-quality form.
Is Zupafood GREENZ suitable for vegans?
Yes, this product is suitable for vegans to take.
Can I take Zupafood GREENZ if I am pregnant or breastfeeding?
