Vitaforce Green Powder Review
Vitaforce green powder formula has made some bold claims about its ingredients. 1) It claims to be “The only green food powder that provides all your daily vitamins and minerals as nature intended.” 2) It claims to be “the only multivitamin/multimineral supplement that provides ideal amounts of each nutrient.” We have mixed feelings about these claims. One, we like their formula and how they’ve created it to truly be complete. But two, it’s hard to set yourself apart in a crowd of amazing green powders like Green Vibrance and Miracle Greens whose formulas have been getting better and better for 20 years in the case of Green Vibrance. And I love how Green Vibrance states right on it’s label what version of green powder you’re drinking. Currently mine says “Version 10.1″ meaning that I’m on the 101st version of the formula. That’s pretty impressive. They’ve obviously put a lot of thought into their formula, finding lots of ways to make it better. So when I see a new green powder come along that claims to be the only this, or the only that, it’s a little hard to take serious. But let’s get into the claims more thoroughly.
How Complete is Vitaforce?
For one thing, their probiotic content is very poor. Not that you need probiotics to have a complete powder, since probiotics aren’t an essential nutrient that you’d find in a multivitamin, but their formula has only 2 billion probiotic cultures per serving. That may sound like a lot, but Green Vibrance has 25 billion cultures per serving, which is quite a difference. 2 billion cultures per serving just isn’t enough to do much. So what do they have? They have all of the ingredients you’d want in a green powder, things like:
- Green Grasses
- Lots of Juices
- Amino Acids
- Essential Fatty Acids
Their claim of being the only green powder that also functions as a multivitamin is mostly due to their addition of Vitamin B-12, Vitamin D, Calcium, Folic Acid and Zinc, which they claim is largely missing from other green powders. That may be true, but these vitamins aren’t really all that difficult to come by in the normal foods we eat. So if these are the only vitamins that separate Vitaforce from other green powder combinations, then I’d say they’re bold claims are pretty shaky. I will say however that their superfruit blend is very impressive and I like the fact that they add nutritional yeast into their formula which has a wide variety of benefits, and is also a rich source of protein.
Vitaforce is just as expensive as the leading brands, and sometimes more expensive. What I like to do when I run out of a green powder is to see which brand is on the best sale and then buy that one. Vitaforce, Green Vibrance, and Miracle Greens are all fairly close in terms of ingredients and one can pretty well switch between the different powders. That being said however, if you like the fact that Green Vibrance is so power packed with probiotics, you might not want to switch to another powder unless it’s really on a great sale. But the choice is yours.
