Green Drink Reviews: New Greens
UPDATED Feb, 2010
New Greens is a formula is a robust mixture that is well balanced and very close to what I would create if I made a general-purpose green drink. It’s greens blend is heavy on algaes (Spirulina & Chlorella) and alfalfa with a variety of grass juices thrown in. Land veggies include carrot, spinach, tomato, kale, broccoli, beet and others. All very good choices. It also includes a variety of antioxidant sources, including some herbs and fruits. The greens, veggies, and antioxidants make up 60% of the mixture, which is an excellent ratio. In addition, New Greens contains some special herbal additions worth highlighting, including royal jelly, pollen, green tea, milk thistle, tumeric, and ginko biloba. Again, these are all very good choices for a green drink. It has a small amount of fibrous meal in the form of flaxseed meal, apple pectin, and brown rice solids. Unfortunately, it also includes some guar gum, but not enough to complain about. Not everyone will like the taste, which is flavored with mint and stevia, so it’s sweet and minty with a hint of freshly cut grass. Over all this is an excellent mixture with a decent price tag. It weighs in at $3.97 per ounce.
