Phytomax is a “super green food in a pill” produced from Hydrilla verticillata—an aquatic plant containing off-the-charts levels of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, chlorophyll, and phytonutrients. When you can’t get the greens you need, colds or flu start circulating, or heavy activity threatens to drain your natural defenses, you can rely on Phytomax to keep your health on track.
Hydrilla Verticillata – Also known as water thyme, Hydrilla verticillata is an aquatic plant. This water-submersed perennial herb contains an impressive profile of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, fatty acids, antioxidants, RNA, DNA, chlorophyll, and other phytonutrients.
This product meets or exceeds federal and state regulations for heavy metals, including California’s Proposition 65 limits.
Does Phytomax contain fiber? If so, how much?
While a current nutritional analysis didn't reveal fiber content, there is most likely only a few milligrams of fiber, if any. One capsule of Phytomax contains 400 mg of Hydrilla verticillata, and in those 400 mg there is only about 1.1 total calories from the naturally occurring carbohydrates, protein, and fat. Since fiber is considered a carbohydrate source, with such a minuscule amount of calories contained in a capsule of Phytomax, it is estimated that the amount of fiber, if there is any to begin with, would only be a couple of milligrams. Taking into account that our suggested daily fiber amounts are 40+ grams, equal to 40,000 milligrams, Phytomax would not be considered a source of fiber.
