Review: Pure Synergy
This is one of the most robust formulas I’ve seen in a green drink, with a HUGE portion of spirulina, chlorella, and algae (bladderwrack, dulse, kelpl) together with green grass juices (barley, alfalfa, parseley, spinach, kale). Together these ingredients represent over 4.5 grams of each serving. Those are great numbers! Next on the list are the “fillers” and fibers, which include sprouted millet and Quinoa. Not bad choices if you want to include some bulk while also keeping the quality high. There are some fruits, including apple, blueberry, raspberry, and papaya. The herbal additions are an interesting and unique blend of mushrooms, root herbs and healing plants. Some highlights include Reishi, Shitake and Maitake mushrooms; Astragalus, Teng Kuei root, and ginger (among many others); plus nettle, burdock, yellow dock, and dandelion (many of my favorite botanicals). This mixture is not sweetened and it tastes pretty green and earthy–so you probably want to mix it with fruit juice or vegetable juice. The manufacturing is all in-house and the quality of this formula is among the top on my list. The price is not the best, but for the quality of this product, it’s not bad at $4.24 per ounce.
Compare to Emerald Balance, which has a similar price tag and robust mixture but a different combination. Also, compare to Vital Greens, which has some similarities in its formulation, but a higher price.
Pure Synergy’s cleansing and regenerative grass juices, algae, seaweeds and enzymes are combined with protective fruits and berries and restorative, adaptogenic herbs and mushrooms to enhance natural detoxification and the radiant energy that results from genuine well-being. Unlike many companies, we never add fillers or bulking agents (such as whole grasses, apple fiber or pectin, rice bran or flax), which dilute nutritional potency and are a potential source of genetically modified material. Pure Synergy is special not only because of its extraordinary formula, but also because we meticulously cultivate and protect all the precious constituents contained in it.
Earthy. Slightly fishy. Slightly grassy.
Ingredients & Nutritional Facts
Great formulation with lots of botanicals that you probably won’t get otherwise, such as the mushrooms and root herbs.
Includes AFA algae from Klammath Lake, Oregon, which some people claim is not a good strain in comparison to spirulina grown in controlled environments. Slightly high priced, but worth the extra expense if you want high quality.
Mix with juice once or twice per day.
