Vitamin A and iron are two of the most significant nutritional deficiencies identified by the world Health Organisation.

Leaf concentrate is extremely rich in both beta-carotene (pro-Vitamin A) and iron, which combat these two deficiencies.

It is also an excellent source of protein, vitamins B6, B9, E and K, plus calcium and magnesium.
