Nature's Nutrition Super Greens & Reds - Product Review

There are many people out there who cannot stand the taste of certain essential vegetables that you need to eat in order to get specific vitamins and minerals into your system as well as fibre for the digestive process. As a result, some supplement companies have come out with a range of “greens” shakes to act as a replacement for this. I decided to give the Nature’s Nutrition range of Super Greens and Reds a go and see what I thought of this product.

About the products

In short, the Super Greens and Reds powders from Nature’s Nutrition are powdered foods that you can use as a shake alone or to add as part of a larger smoothie combination. The shake contains plenty of fibre (which people generally aren’t getting) and even a little bit over 10g of plant protein per serving (an amount that will definitely help in giving a little protein bump for your daily intake requirements).

In terms of this product’s constituents, it has a healthy mix of greens and reds that one would commonly place into the superfoods category; foods that contain a very healthy amount micronutrients that the body would need and use to perform its daily processes efficiently, effectively and essentially help keep it healthy. These ingredients include wheatgrass, spirulina, beetroot, flaxseed, barley grass and kale. Additionally, this shake also includes a host of probiotics that are absolutely key to maintaining optimal gut health.

Usability

When it comes to the taste of the shake, greens shakes generally often taste horrid and are consequently used inside various smoothy recipes or combinations just to stomach them down. However, I was surprised to find that these shakes were actually quite pleasant when consumed alone. The flavours were palatable and easy to take. My favourite flavour was the raw chocolate. Additionally, I found these flavours would blend quite nicely with more elaborate smoothies like berry or apple smoothies (depending on the flavours of course).

In terms of texture, the rather “soily” or “sandy” texture of greens shakes was still present with this one, unfortunately. But that is to be expected from any greens shake that contains ground and extracted natural ingredients. The best way around this would be to make it part of smoothly and blend it up even further. However, the taste of the shake does help one get over the texture and makes it more drinkable than other greens shakes. 

Dosages

The recommended serving size of this shake is 25g. This is sufficient per serving but how many servings are had per day is dependant on what the individual is consuming throughout the rest of the day. If no more greens, vegetables or other fibrous foods are being eaten in a person’s daily diet, then I would definitely recommend taking two servings on a daily basis.

Rating

All in all, this product gets 3.5 out of 5 for me. It must be noted that is me being harsh since I am not a usual go to of greens shakes. However, I have no doubt that people who are avid users of greens shake would give this a much higher rating due to its great taste and versatile usability.
