Review: Go Greens
UPDATED: Dec 2010
If you want your green drink to provide high levels of antioxidants, then you should consider this formula. The antioxidants in this formula come from a wide variety of sources, including numerous fruits (blueberry, cranberry, raspberry, bilberry, cherry, lemon, apple, peach, elderberry, pomegranate, blackberry, Acerola, Apple, Pomegranate, Mangosteen, and Acai) plus herbs like green and white tea (I love that they include the expensive white tea, which is higher in antioxidants than green tea), pine bark extract (this is one of the most expensive and most powerful botanicals you can get — I’ve never seen this in a green drink before), cinnamon and marigold. The greens are mostly barley grass juice and chlorella, but they include some salina, kelp, spinach, kale, and broccoli. They bulk up this potent formula with rice bran, oat beta glucan, and lecithin. Overall, this is a very nice formula, even if the price is a bit high at $5.17 per ounce.
Compare to Antioxidant Greens, which has a slightly more broad spectrum formula.

Ingredients & Nutritional Facts
This formula is maximized for antioxidants with some of the best herbal additions I’ve seen in a green drink powder.
If you don’t seek your antioxidants from a green drink, you may prefer a formulation that is heavier in green nutrients. Some people will not like the stevia sweetener. This is an expensive formula.
Just add 1 packet to approximately 8-16 fl oz of bottled water (to taste preference), shake, and enjoy. For best results take a couple of drinks from a water bottle before adding packets.
