Why is Athletic Greens Ranked #1?
Comparing and ranking green superfood drinks can be challenging because no two are exactly alike. Some may have a robust grasses panel but are weak in the vegetable category. Some may have probiotics but no enzymes. Some will use juice extracts as the source of superfoods and others use juice powders.
What we try to determine in doing these reviews is identify if the product is a complete formula, one that uses quality ingredients, has the potencies that will have a true impact on the body, is reasonably priced and tastes good.
Athletic Greens is exceptional in all categories. But let’s break it down…
Athletic Greens contains an awesome superfood section that is not only extremely potent at 8.4 grams, but has the added benefit that the main superfood ingredients are organic. Quantity and quality defines the superfoods in this formula.
The formula contains more than just green superfoods. It contains an excellent antioxidant and herbal section, has a killer probiotics panel, a mushroom complex for immune building and energy and digestive enzymes. Athletic Greens is a well-rounded, comprehensive formula that eliminates the need for you to take other supplements.
Lastly, Athletic Greens is hands down the best tasting green drink we’ve tried. And this is critically important because the number one reason why people stop taking green drinks is because they hate the taste.
Superfoods and Nutrition
Let’s talk more about the superfoods. Athletic Greens combines fruits, vegetables, grasses and algae to create a very complete superfood section. It is made up of approximately 27 different superfoods that include broccoli, wheatgrass, alfalfa, carrot, spirulina and spinach. Many of these are organic and some are even juice extracts -the most nutrient-rich source of superfoods.
What we really love about Athletic Greens though is their inclusion of more unique ingredients like bilberry, beet and papaya. All these panels add up to create a great immune-building and digestive punch.
And don’t forget the robust probiotics, antioxidants, herbs and enzymes that make Athletic Greens a very complete green drink powder.
Our favorite thing about this green drink superfood however, is the taste. With all the quality greens, leafy vegetables, grasses and algae, Athletic Greens has done an amazing job masking the ‘healthy’ taste with a little bit of chocolate love. You can’t beat it. Delish!
We’ve also been impressed with the nutrition panel in general. With 233 mg of digestive enzymes per serving, and a brag-worthy serving of probiotics, Athletic Greens provides the energy, nutrients, and the help your body needs to utilize those calories.
We love the antioxidant panel for immune building, including the Shiitake mushrooms.
Up until recently, we’ve been a little miffed at the price for Athletic Greens. The grams-per-serving cost is higher than some of the others reviewed on this site. But now they’ve dropped the price to $48.50 and have given a nice price incentive if you go on their auto-ship program.
Taste and Value
“They done did good!” in terms of taste. Like we said before, the fact that they are able to mask the grassy/pond taste with just a hint of chocolate is wonderful. In my opinion, it is among the best green drink I’ve tasted if not the best.
When we break down the value of Athletic Greens, here is how we sit:
The introductory order of Athletic Greens costs $48.50. With 30 servings per container, and 12 grams per serving, we are looking at about $1.63 per serving. Not too bad for 12 grams of nutrition per serving.
You can probably find some cheaper green drinks out there but Athletic Greens does use more costly organic superfoods for ingredients.
We like Athletic Greens. Great product, great organic superfoods, phenomenal taste. Not the cheapest green drink but definitely one of the most popular. The ingredients really are upper class.
Taste is important because if you have to psych yourself up to drink it everyday, chances are you want be consistent. I know that Athletic Greens is a great product with a well-rounded and more than comprehensive panel…so have at it!
Hopefully this Athletic Greens review steered you in the right direction.
