Review: Juvo Raw SuperFood
Juvo has a unique an interesting formulation that, I think, you need to try for yourself and see if it works for you. The mixture is fairly heavy in grains (millet, rice solids, various beans), which act as filler and also provide some cleansing action and some protein. Once you get beyond this, the mixture starts looking interesting — with a healthy dose of veggies (kale, beet, parsley, carrot, tomato, pumpkin, radish, and cabbage) and a huge amount of alfalfa as the primary green superfood (other greens include spirulina and chlorella, radish leaves and seaweeds). The mixture also offers plenty of fruits (lingonberry, black currant, aronia, concord grape, pomegranate, sour cherry, acerola, blueberry, cranberry, elderberry, and many others).
Finally, the formula includes a larger than normal amount of mushrooms, which I love to see in a green drink formula because they are so healthy and fairly expensive to include (which is why most don’t). Mushrooms include Shitake, Reishi, and Agaricus.
Interestingly, with all that fruit, the mixture does not taste fruity. In fact, it tastes fairly earthy with a hint of beans and mushrooms. Its neutral taste means it mixes well with any juice or with chocolate and almond milk. I’ve also mixed it with spicy tomato juice. It comes in at only $2.95 per ounce, which makes it one of the more cost-effective formulas around.

A unique formula that sets it apart from the others. Includes mushrooms and plenty of special herbs for an excellent price.
Has a lot of grains and beans that, while they have benefits, constitute fillers by most standards.
1 scoop of Juvo with 8-10 ounces of juice or soy milk, 1-3 times per day.
[editor’s note: I used 2 scoops instead of 1 and had excellent results. The price makes this very do-able while still being competitive with other formulas.]
