Although ProGreens was formulated for use by doctors who need specific information about ingredients for their patients with food allergies and other issues, its formulation is utlimately quite comparable to several others. The approach is to offer a variety of greens for nutrition, along with a collection of botanical herbs for overall health and immune support.
The greens consist largely of spirulina and a variety of grasses with some wheat sprout, beet juice and spinach powders to round out the mix. It does not have much fruit (just acerola berry juice powder), but makes up for that with a host of anti-oxidant-rich botanicals (green tea extract, billberry extract, milk thistle, astragalus). Other key ingredients include plenty of bee pollen and royal jelly (two of my favorite superfoods), ginko and Echinacea. The fillers include lecithin, apple pectin and flaxseed meal (3000mg total, which is higher than I like to see). Overall, the formulation is decent, but not spectacular…and the price is on the high side at $4.85 per ounce, but this may be offset by the security you get from knowing the exact amount of each ingredient in the formulation (not many products provide this).
ProGreens® is an all-natural blended variety of “Super Foods” that provide broad-spectrum nutritional support from certified organic grasses and natural food factors not found in isolated vitamin or mineral concentrates. In addition to the green grasses, sea vegetables and algae, ProGreens® contains adaptogenic herbs, active probiotics, fibers, and a variety of nutrient rich superfoods. Best kept refrigerated to retain natural freshness and probiotic activity.
