Green Superfood Powders - Any good?
Posted 06 February 2012 - 02:54 PM
I found one called Green Vibrance that claims to have equivalent to 1/2 lb fresh leafy greens in one scoop of powder. Plus it has probiotics, fiber, and vitamins.
Do you kind folks feel that this would be a good supplement for days when I don't get all of my vegetables on the plate? Life is busy sometimes and it's hard to get a good variety of the green stuff on a daily basis.

I have not heard of green super foods so tried to read a bit about superfoods here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superfood
As for Green Vibrance I'm seeing over 200 positive reviews about that product here:

I still prefer to get the nutrients through fresh foods and try my best to consume those in a daily basis. But I also think that if someone can not really have time to prepare healthier foods, supplements like that might help.

And as jasserEnv pointed out, after processing-what is the real benefit?
Grab an apple-made in USA and healthy.

My second objection is concerned with additives, as already mentioned by Shortpoet. In addition, there's the thought of all the energy needed to produce something we should be getting naturally anyway. Sorry, I just don't buy into this.

But I agree with the others that this stuff is majorly processed, and I doubt the health benefit is as great as what it is claimed to be by the companies after all the processing. Still, not bad to have some around if you're been skimping on your greens because I don't see how it could hurt. It might actually help a little.

I agree with this, I prefer my nutrients fresh and from whole food. If you are having a busy day, big deal. One day without the recommended amount of green leafy veggies is not going to cause you harm.... if you do not make a habit out of it. Eat fresh, eat whole, and avoid tablets/ powders/ medications if they are not truly necessary to your health or well being.
