Greens First Green Powder Review
Greens First is a relatively new green powder to hit the market. There are a lot of great things about this green powder formula. It’s full of fruits and vegetables, high in antioxidants, and has a nice blend of grasses and algae. But there are a few drawbacks that you should be aware of before purchasing it.
- Serving Size — One subtle drawback that most people probably overlook is the serving size. Greens First has 30 servings per container, just like most green powders, yet the serving size for Greens First is only 9 grams, compared to other powders like Green Vibrance, which has a serving size of 12 grams. So even though you’re still getting 30 servings per container of Greens First, you’re actually getting 25% less product for the same price. That’s why we gave Greens First only 3 out of 5 stars for cost, because we think it’s overpriced compared to other brands.
- Filler Ingredients – In our opinion, Soy Lecithin and fiber are more like filler ingredients than anything else. Sure you need your fiber, but you really don’t need much soy lecithin, especially from a green powder. Soy lecithin comprises 1800mg per serving, that’s just under 20% of the overall serving. Fiber comprises 1950mg per serving, which comes in at just over 20% of the overall serving. So not only are you getting 25% less powder per serving compared with other brands, 40% of what you are getting is somewhat superfluous in our opinion.
- Process — Greens First green powder has a good manufacturing process. They flash dry their ingredients, keeping the enzymes and other vital nutrients intact. That’s definitely a pro. But this pro is offset by the fact that other manufacturers like Green Vibrance do the same thing, and usually at a cheaper price.
- Testimonials — All of the testimonials for this product are 100% positive. Though there aren’t that many of them yet, since this green powder is relatively new, people really seem to like the flavor and feeling they get from this product. This is a decent powder for the money, but if you’re really looking to get the most bang for your buck, check out the page up top where we go through what we believe to be the best green powder formulas on the market today.
