[Amazon.ca] Green Superfood powder

Hey guys, green superfood powder is on sale. It doesn't get much cheaper than this. I use it for my daily breakfast/post workout shake.

Yes, you can eat fruits and vegetables instead of using a powder supplement. Yes it's cheaper.

Yeah, I've gone through half a dozen or so different kinds. They all taste pretty sweet. It's powdered fruit after all.

Greens + a banana is pretty much the only sweetener I use.

Good sale price but sometimes it's really a case of getting what you pay for. How are some greens supplements $2+/serving (athletic greens) while this one is $0.5>?

For $6 more I'd recommend something like:

I'm not affiliated or anything but atleast it's not a proprietary blend.

I mostly agree. It's an unregulated industry, the players make wild claims and the ingredients are all over place from brand to brand.

I eat a lot of whole fruits and vegetables so I'm not overly concerned but it's worth pointing.

Will try yours next..

Yep, makes it's almost impossible to do a label to label comparison.

Any idea what rakuten % these health products fall under?

You should be fine since net carbs is 2g carbs per scoop.

Liked it so much until I found it has maltodextrin and silicon dioxide! I saw the benefits but I also know I am drinking these two bad ingredients every day. Please just get rid of these ingredients!!!

Just eat some damn real food. That's more "natural" and "organic" than this garbage.

Silicon dioxide is both completely unstudied in greens as well as not that well researched. We don't know what it does yet, but it remains approved by the FDA. It could be added in to reduce clumping. As far as we know, it's safe.
The non-GMO maltodextrin is just a highly purified corn starch. Neither looks like problems to me.

As a side note, this is probably what redflagdealers are going to be consuming in the next 10 years. Sign me up for some soylent green so I can finally buy that OLED monitor

What's there to answer? There's nothing wrong with either of those ingredients.

Since joining RFD, I’ve discovered that buying low end junk for cheap means you've just wasted the money that you could have put toward some better stuff….!

REALLY? Did you know that using the word or term "superfood" is now illegal in the EU? So what do the EU "know" that regulators here won't acknowledge about these supplement scams?

If the OP title just said, "Green Powder" on sale, which it might in the EU Smiling Face With Open Mouth, would any of you even open the link? Throw in the con title "superfood" & suddenly it's legit?

Just eat real food & more fruits & vegetables!

Yeah... I wouldn't take this shit. Ask yourself these questions:

1. Are the ingredients scientifically-proven to provide benefits in the given doses?
2. Is the product routinely tested by a third-party testing organization to guarantee this product has what is says it has and doesn't have excess heavy metals?
3. Is this a good deal at the price?

The answer to all of these questions is NO!

Furthermore, just remember that Nate Diaz (a pro athlete) tested positive for SARMS from taking a very popular vegan multivitamin.
