Most of the ingredients in MacroLife Naturals products are cold processed or are processed at low temperatures to ensure enzyme bioactivity. With the exception of the vitamin E and a few herbs and extracts such as; Silymarin, Green Tea, Grape Seed, Ginkgo Biloba, Eleuthero Root, and Echinacea. The baby barley grass juice powder utilizes a patented cold process to assure the most bio-ability and superior quality.
We recommend to not mix Macro Greens with any citrus juice or any juice that would be too acid like tomato, orange or grapefruit juice, because it kills the friendly bacteria in the Macro Greens. The best juice to use is apple, white grape, pear, peach, white cranberry, or apricot. You can also make a smoothie with rice milk, or almond milk, bananas, blueberries, and even add protein powder for a complete meal replacement!

since I started taking this product I feel more energetic throughout the day and is great for my on the go lifestyle. The taste was bad though. But I would still recommend for someone who is always on the go and has trouble getting proper nutrition.
