I was super disappointed to learn that GNA stopped carrying the Flora brand of Wheatgrass Powder that I have bought for many years when I stopped by today to stock up on some supplements. I decided to give Progressive VegeGreens a try since it was included in the BOGO. VegeGreens is a comprehensive combination of over 60 land, sea and cruciferous vegetables, as well as super green foods, EFAs, pre and probiotics, enzymes and herbal co-factors. With 9 distinctive blends of green foods and plant extracts, VegeGreens supplies an extraordinary spectrum of nutrients ranging from the rare trace minerals found in sea vegetables to the health-enhancing compounds exclusive to cruciferous vegetables.
On the product label as well as its website, the producer claims that VegeGreens, which contains wheatgrass among many other ingredients (insert) provides the following benefits:
- Restores a healthy pH
- Supports liver function
- Detoxifies the body
- Cleanses the colon
- Increases energy and renews mental clarity
- Stimulates and enhances brain function
- Strengthens immune system
- Supports cardiovascular health
- Balances blood sugar
- Boosts metabolism
- Improves digestive function
- Promotes clear, healthy skin
- Acts as an anti-inflammatory
- Helps to relieve allergies
- Tastes great!
Blend of 9 Different Families
The nine botanical families in VegeGreens are Green Food Concentrates, Sea Vegetables, Land Vegetables, Cruciferous Vegetables, Essential Fatty Acids, Phytonutrients, Standardized Herbal Co-factors, Digestive Support and Fibre.These distinctive blends supply an extraordinary spectrum of nutrients that can only be obtained by consuming the entire rainbow of vegetable colours. The power of VegeGreens comes from the numerous individual nutrients that each blend contains, as well as the synergy between the blends.
Taste Test: I purchase the original flavor of the powder format and enjoyed the earthy taste as I am familiar and a little fond of the taste of wheatgrass and green juices, which is kind of what this product tastes like when mixed into water, with a slightly sweet note and aftertaste.
Overall Review: What I really love about this product is that I felt an instant surge of energy within minutes of ingesting it. In fact, I took it after completing a gruelling workout which focused on my legs intensely and was able to do a few more sets of leg exercises less than 30 minutes after! I highly suggest this product since for the money it provides substantially more benefits than wheatgrass powder alone, which is surprisingly costly.
