Review: Greens Today
The Greens Today blend is formulated to offer great nutrition, plus cleansing effects and immune support. It features a heavy dose of greens (mostly Spirulina, broccoli, alfalfa and barley grass — a very good mix), plus antioxidants (green tea, beet root, acerola, bilberry and others). That covers over 50% of the mixture. What’s great about this formula are the extra herbal additions. Some highlights include Pine Bark Extract (one of my favorites for immune support and antioxidants), artichoke (appetite suppressant), Licorice Root (adaptogen for brain and immune support), plus Horsetail Root, Astragalus, and Dandelion (all excellent herbs for health and wellness). Finally, there is a small amount of these powerful additions: Maitake and Reishi mushroom (brain support and disease fighting properties), Royal Jelly (pure nutrition), and CoQ-10 (essential supplement for health and energy).
The down side is that the manufacturer decided to add some unpleasant ingredients for flavor. These include fructose, maltodextrine (a thickening agent and sweetener), and strawberry flavoring. This takes a few notches off of an otherwise excellent formula.
The price of Greens Today is quite good at just $2.39 per ounce. This is one of the best values among green drink formulas.
