Hydrilla Verticillata

Posted on June 5, 2016 at 10:40 PM

Hydrilla Verticillata (Aquatic Super Green Food)


Hydrilla is a green plant that grows naturally in the pristine fresh waters of Florida. It is a fascinating and remarkable plant in that it grows up to six inches a day while hyper-accumulating nutrients from the soil it is rooted in, as well as, the water it lives in. Gram per gram this super green food contains more nutrients than any plant on earth. It is the highest source of calcium and Vitamin B12. It is so nutrient dense, one need only take one 500mg capsule per 50 lbs. of body weight.


Hydrilla is the King of all Plants


Because of the variety and concentration of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, trace minerals, antioxidants, and a host of plant chemicals, Hydrilla has been shown to benefit every system and cell of the body. It is of great value to:


Colon health and detoxification


The Immune System


Nail, hair, skin, bone and joints


Women’s Health


Weight control


Energy levels


Mental concentration, focus, and memory


The Gastro-intestinal tract (Digestion)


Heavy metal elimination





Antioxidants – Hydrilla contains Vitamin E, Selenium, Zinc, Beta-Carotene/Vitamin A, and Superoxide Dismutase (SOD), a powerful, naturally occurring, essential antioxidant. Antioxidants work to protect your body from free radical damage, which results in premature aging and impaired immune system function.

Essential Trace Minerals – Hydrilla is an excellent source of silica, which plays a major role in skin, nail, hair, bone, cartilage, and artery health. Hydrilla also contains cobalt, molybdenum, zinc, selenium, copper, and iron– all essential in trace amounts for proper health and an alkaline system.

DNA and RNA – Hydrilla is a rich source of DNA and RNA proteins, which the body is able to use as building blocks for repair of our own strands of genetic material.
