Review: AlkaVision GreenShield

This product, like so many others in this price range (under $4 per oz), is very heavy in grasses, which are great for some basic nutrients, but they are not the most nutrient-rich of the botanical ingredients available for green formulas. The mint leaves have some excellent qualities, but they are mostly for flavor (covering up the grassy taste of all those grasses). The aloe and dandelion are excellent additions and should be higher on the list (more of them). The other interesting ingredient in this mixture is the clay, which is usually used for cleansing and detoxing. Clay pulls the toxins out of your intestinal tract as it passes through (it has no nutritional value in itself). Some would argue that you should not mix clay with nutritional ingredients, as the clay pulls the nutrients out along with the toxins. There is some debate over that, but most likely, at lease some of the nutrients get digested before the clay starts drawing elements out. Still, this is a strange formula, if well priced at $3.75 per ounce.

  1. can I take green shield while breastfeeding?

  2. First, you should probably consult your doctor before making any major changes to your diet while breastfeeding. That goes for any change — even a healthy one. Second, whatever you begin in terms of green drinks, supplements, or herbal health products…you should begin slowly and with a very small dose. Then increase gradually while monitoring the effects on you and your child. Green drinks in general should not pose a problem to breast milk when taken in small amounts. However, I would suggest staying away from green drinks that are high in detoxifying ingredients (which Green Shield is due to the clay) or those with exotic herbs. You might steer toward the green drinks that are formulated simply for nutrition.

  3. Is this gluten free?

  4. I’ve been drinking this stuff for years and love it. It has a good amount of calcium in it, so if you’re vegan, that’s helpful. I also notice that if I drink it in the morning before a weight workout, my muscles feel stronger than usual- they don’t get fatigued as quickly. My concern is what is listed for the cholesterol content. I never really looked at that before because I assumed, based on the ingredients, it would be cholesterol free, but the label says <8 mg. Less than 8 milligrams- so what does that mean- it contains 7 milligrams per serving? I e-mailed the company, and they said my label must have a typo, but the label information on the website also says the same thing. I hate to think I've been consuming cholesterol all these years. Do you know what ingredient in the product contains the cholesterol?
