Green Drink Reviews: Living Fuel
UPDATED: June, 2010
This product has a lot of fiber and filler, but it’s also a very low-priced product. And for the price, it’s actually not a bad product with plenty of greens and special herbs. The manufacturer boasts a high protein content, which is true when you add it all up. But while it can be argued that chia seeds provide fatty acids, that peas and brown rice have protein, and that lecithin is good for digestion and elimination…the truth is, these are all relatively low-priced fillers (chia seeds less so) for those who know about green drink formulation. The greens in this product (mostly barley grass, spirulina and some spinach, kale, and other veggie powders) provide the bulk of the nutrition and it also offers a few well-chosen special herbs (dandelion, astragalus, ginger and milk thistle are the most notable). Sweetened with Stevia, which will appeal to some and not others. Good price at only $2.20 per ounce.

SuperGreens is much more than your typical Greens drink. SuperGreens has an almost 2:1 protein-to-carbohydrate ratio and a 2:1 carbohydrate-to-fiber ratio. Plus it has numerous nutrients that support the stabilization of blood sugar levels. Therefore, you can mix in small amounts of any kind of juice or fruit and still not raise blood sugar levels significantly.
