Vitaforce Powder — Multivitamin Strength

I find it interesting that Vitaforce brand green powder has specifically formulated their powder to function as a complete multivitamin, meaning that they’ve added in everything to their formula that’s on the list of essential vitamins and minerals that the body needs on a daily basis.  While this is an intriguing claim, it’s somewhat hollow in our humble opinion.  We’ve already made the claim previously that if a person takes a complete green powder, meaning a green powder with a high star value in completeness, then they really shouldn’t have to take any kind of normal dietary supplements because the leading green powder formulas are so full of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients.  Vitaforce, however, is the first formula that we’ve come across that actually has intentionally sought to replace the multivitamin.  So while that’s a great aim, it doesn’t necessarily put them leaps and bounds above other brands.  The vitamins and minerals they claim that other brands are lacking are relatively common vitamins and minerals, things like Vitamin B-12, Vitamin D, Calcium, Vitamin E, Folic Acid and Zinc.  Vitamin D and Calcium are common in dairy products, and Vitamin E is common to most seeds and vegetable oils.  So as long as you’re eating dairy and seeds and vegetable oils, you’ll most likely be getting the rest of the vitamins and minerals that are lacking from your green powder combination.

Nutritional Yeast

Vitaforce is however, the first brand of green powder we’ve reviewed that has nutritional yeast in its formula.  Nutritional yeast is full of health benefits and protein and has itself been called a superfood.  It has 18 amino acids, making it a complete protein, and 15 minerals.  Many vegetarians use nutritional yeast as a supplement for meat.  Nutritional yeast also contains the trace mineral chromium, which is known as Glucose Tolerance Factor (GTF), and is helpful for people who are dealing with diabetes.  So if you’re a person either dealing with diabetes or having blood sugar issues, the Vitaforce powder might be the right blend of green powder for you.  If you aren’t then you really ought to check out the reviews on Green Vibrance and Miracle Greens before making a decision, as these are comparable products that are around the same price or cheaper in many cases.

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
  • Algae
  • Lots of Juices
  • Phytonutrients
  • 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.

Cost

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.
