Product Review: Vital Greens
This formulation is quite interesting. It is designed to curb the appetite (with artichoke powder, green tea and other ingredients) while giving you some protein (from peas mostly) and nutrients from a variety of green botanicals. The greens are heavy in spirulina with a few grasses thrown in too. It has the ratio of spirulina to grass that I like — meaning it’s mostly spirulina. Other greens and herbs of note include spinach powder, ginseng, rosehips, astragalus, milk thistle, rosemary extract and mushroom extract. Plus, there is a hefty dose of apple powder, which is very good for digestion and liver cleansing (plus it tastes good). I’ve never seen a mixture with this much apple powder in it. The only drawback is the large amount of bulking ingredients (all of which have some function in the mix, but they are mostly bulking). These include the pea protein, lecithin, and some flaxseed meal. Overall, this is a high-end formulation for a very reasonable price of $4.36 per ounce.
Compare with Berry Green for a different formulation at a slightly higher price.
