Vitamineral Green Review
Vitamineral Green is another example of a green powder formula that has it all. Not only does it give you a nice assortment of grasses, algae, and vegetables, it also has a lot of extras like digestive enzymes and probiotics. Another great thing about this powder is that it doesn’t have any fillers that a lot of green powder formulas have, things like lecithin, apple fiber, and other cheap ingredients that don’t really do the body any good. That’s why we gave it 5 out of 5 stars for completion. On the contrary, Vitamineral Green is power packed with things like:
- 7 Different Types of Grasses
- Nova Scotia Dulse and Icelandic Kelp
- Digestive Enzymes and Probiotics
One potential problem however is with the bio-availability of Vitamineral Green. The ingredients in green powders are generally notoriously difficult for the body to break down. That’s why green powder formulas usually come with things like probiotics and digestive enzymes, to help the body break down and absorb all of the complex nutrients. Not only that, but a lot of green powder manufacturers have proprietary methods of freeze drying and rendering their green powders more bio-available to the body. I think of Garden of Life’s Poten-Zyme process in which many of the nutrients are already pre-digested and fermented, helping the stomach absorb as much as possible. Other powder makers, like Green Vibrance, leave as many of their ingredients in raw form as possible, which also aids the body in digestion. Vitamineral Green, on the other hand, doesn’t say much about their methods for drying and processing their powder, which leads one to believe that it isn’t anything special. So as far as bio-availability goes, you might not be able to absorb this powder as much as you would other green powder formulas. That’s why we could only give them 3 stars for bio-availability.
Another factor to consider is the cost. Vitamineral Green is one of the most expensive green powder formulas on the market today. It generally costs $50 for a two month supply. Many of the more popular brands of green powder will be similarly priced, but for my money, I prefer something like Green Vibrance, because it not only has everything Vitamineral Green contains, it also has extras like herbal extracts for liver support and whole body wellness, and it also contains raw foods, which are rare to find in a green powder. So the choice is yours, as always.
