Green Drink Reviews: Green Vibrance

UPDATED: Dec 2010
An excellent formulation of spirulina, grasses and vegetable powders. Includes a nice selection of “extra botanicals” including bee pollen, ginko biloba, green tea extract, and Astragalus. Contains a slightly high amount of filler/fibrous ingredients, but that’s offset by an excellent price tag. Also has a fruit blend, probiotic cultures and enzymes. The mango powder, cayenne, and ginger are excellent additions. Overall, this is an excellent formulation at a reasonable price.

Pros

Contains a nice array of nutrient-rich food powders, together with a good selection of “special herbs,” such as Astragalus, green tea extract, bee pollen, vitamin E, milk thistle, ginko biloba, Suma, bladderwrack, rockweed, ginger root and cayenne. Good cost-benefit ratio and a very well thought-out formulation.

Cons

Some of the special herbs in this formulation may be herbs that you purchase separately, and so may be duplicating your purchase with this formulation. Many, however, are well chosen, in that you cannot get too much of them (green tea, pollen, vitamin E, ginger and cayenne for example).

  1. jsut wanted to add… that I drink the GV cold so I ice my green tea!

  2. I like to make mine with black berries, raspberries, mango and almond milk. It’s so tasty!

  3. has anyone else had allergic reactions such as a rash when taking GV? SCOTT – did a dermatologist determine that GV causes rashes in some folks?

  4. How long does detox take? I started taking GV a week and a half ago faithfully. I became very constipated, had bad skin breakouts on my face and have had persistent headaches. Is this detox taking place? The constipation and skin breakouts have seemed to resolve, but I still am having headaches. Any advice/info would be appreciated.

  5. anneb, yes, my advice is reduce the dose you’re taking and see if that helps. If not, then switch brands to something with fewer ingredients and see if that stops the headaches. If not, then switch from green drinks to red drinks. If so, then you’re allergic to something in the GV mixture. There are so many ingredients in GV that it’s difficult to track it down, but you can use a process of elimination (as I’ve suggested many times throughout this site) to find the culprit.

  6. I have been taking GV for 7 days now. I am super excited about how great this will be for my body. I dont mind the taste at all. However, since day 3 i have been waking up at 3, 4 am with stomach aches and have had to run to the bathroom. I am assuming I am adjusting to the probiotics and or detoxing and am going to push through and keep taking it. Could this adjustment take weeks? I’m just trying to understand how long this period realistically could take.

  7. I just tried GV for the first time this morning, with one teaspoon in a glass of cold water with some lemon flavoring and stevia. It tasted pretty awful. I can’t have fruit juices so I need to find another alternative. My next attempt will be to try it in unsweetened chocolate almond milk and add a little stevia. I’d love to hear if anyone has tried GV in chocolate almond milk.

  8. I get an incredibly terrible herx reaction from taking GV, I knew it was a no-no, from taking it in the past, but tried a scoop again yesterday and ended up spending the evening bawling in pain. Of course, their is something else wrong with me (nobody knows), stomach pains of some kind, so I can’t just blame the green vibrance for exacerbating my symptoms, I may try it again this weekend, hate to waste the product, it hurts to eat anything really.

  9. I have been taking GV for years but a few month’s ago I got a case of what I thought was bronchitis so I double up on the GV thinking it would strengthen my immune system and help heal the condition, well the condition got worse and for approx. 8 months this “bronchitis” remained and I would cough all the time and produce alot of mucus. Well I had a thought that maybe I was allergic to something in the GV so I quit taking it for a few days and walla my cough subsided and I started feeling better. My question is has anyone had this type of reaction or does anyone know anything about the ingredients that would cause this type of reaction?

  10. I use “Rainbow Vibrance” by the same company, Vibrant Health. It’s ingredients include red, yellow, green and blue fruits and vegetables. With phytonutrients, the more colors, the better. The drawback is it doesn’t have the wide array of greens that “Green Vibrance” does. I mix it with “All-Bran Buds” and drink with water. A candy bar does taste better, but I drink it for the health benefits. In a day, I will have a glass of kefir with “Garden Of Life” Probiotics, my “Rainbow Vibrance”, and then four “Garden Of Life Vitamin Code” capsules spread throughout the day.

  11. I just started taking this product this week and while I love all it does for me, I don’t love that it seems to keep me up at night. Could that small amount of green tea extract be doing this? Has anyone else experienced sleeplessness with this product? (I only drink this product at dinner time).

    Thanks!

  12. Great stuff. I believed I ate well. After a bit of constipation on the 2nd & 3rd days.. I became very regular, 3x’s/day evacuation. Some of the stuff that came out of me… Unbelievable! 3 weeks in with Green Vibrance and I feel really good, sleep well, and have significantly more energy, longer! Great product, great price!
