I read this offers the best value compared to the other super green powders.

Curious as well. I buy Amazing Grass Green Superfood but they changed the ingredients about a year ago.

May give this a shot instead..

I can. Keeping in mind that how it "performs" is subjective to the user, but I can offer my thoughts compared to other greens that I've tried. This is my go-to greens powder. Compared to other brands I've tried, it dissolves better, tastes good on its own and in smoothies, and provides the same benefits, from my experience. A regular 60 serving tub can run you $70 easy at some health food stores. This has 90 servings and normally costs $60. At regular price this is a deal. At this price it's a no brainer. I just bought a container and might have to buy another one at this price.

Buying online is your best bet. This used to be in stores, but for the last 6 months I haven't been able to find it; seems like it was replaced by another product by Macrolife, called "Reds." (You can't make this stuff up.) Reds is beet-based with fruit, compared to this product, which is green vegetable-based. Reds is also less servings per contained and, imo having bought a container, tastes worse than greens on its own.

If you're on the fence, go for it!

I tried both this and Amazing Grass. I personally prefer the taste of Amazing Grass, but for this price, this is a steal.

This is really going to depend on your taste. I didn't have any issues with the taste. In fact I found it sweeter then I anticipated. Others in my family, were a bit more dramatic.... I wonder if you can cook with it?

I'm skeptical of the reviews. I swear sometimes it's just a placebo effect knowing that you're ingesting all these "super foods" and then you attribute every great thing happening in your life to the powder. just my two cents.


I'll still try it though Face With Tears Of Joy

I bought this by mistake thinking it was good bang for the buck as someone placed the last jar by another price tag saying $26.99 at Costco.
I took it home knowing if the reviews were bad or I could get it cheaper elsewhere I could return it.
There are good reviews online and the $45.99 price at Costco which I also paid, is a steal compared to other places so decided to keep it and try it.
I did not find it to be as effective as other greens powders I've used before.
Note it's not only greens powders but other stuff mixed in including vitamins which I believe are synthetic as my urine is bright yellow after taking it.
After I finish my current jar will revert back to Ergogenics whole greens powder and a separate vitamin pill etc.
It's quite convenient as it has so many different stuff all in one but the expensive ingredients like the spirulina and chlorella may be watered down by the cheaper filler stuff IMO.

So this is basically for people who don't want/can't eat fruit?

Is there any other advantage beyond convenience?

I'm used to buying the progressive vegegreens. I find the powder is pretty fine which is easy to clean. I wouldn't mind trying this if I didn't already just opened a new jar.

I have a green smoothie every day for breakfast with supplements that aid in digestion. When my diet causes inflammation to my intestines it inevitably leads to an autoimmune reaction. All of my major organs have been attacked. This doesn't make me an expert. It means not paying attention has consequences.

There is a wealth of gut-health research being made accessible during the past few years. See Rhonda Patrick video series https://www.foundmyfitness.com/about-dr-rhonda-patrick. She has a smoothie recipe and she interviews research leaders directly and tries to make sense of the research in practical terms. Fortunately it hasn't all been completely monetized and the best digestive practices cost nothing. Also, it's not a bunch of bloggers and "journalists" creating click-bait. Unfortunately this means the information is dense and requires time to understand.
