Better Than Greens! Review by Stephanie D. Scarborough

5464 State Road
Kingsville, Ohio 44048

The product Better Than Greens is certified organic grains and Hawaiian spirulina with vegetables, herbs, and enzymes. It is offered with or without Allimax, which is a vegetable protein containing amino acids and calcium.

As to what makes it work, Better Than Greens features a vegan formula that contains:

  • Organic amaranth
  • Hawaiian spirulina
  • Organic brown rice
  • Organic flax seed
  • Organic millet
  • Inulin
  • Non-GE lecithin
  • Acerola fruit powder
  • Milk thistle extract
  • Stevia leaf extract
  • Horsetail herb powder
  • Papaya fruit
  • Carrot powder
  • Broccoli powder
  • Citrus bioflavonoids
  • Octacosanol
  • Natural pineapple & vanilla flavor

Just as important is what it doesn't contain. It has no alcohol, sugar, yeast, wheat, gluten, milk, or preservatives. Also, it is processed without heat, as heat destroys enzymes.

Better Than Greens tastes better than my former green food supplement, just as it promised. It has grains not contained in most "greens" products. Moreover, it contains milk thistle extract to cleanse and rebuild the liver. The price, compared to what you can find in most health food stores, is better or at least the same when you factor in shipping costs.

The website answers many questions you may have about Better than Greens products and contents. They also offer a toll-free question and order line.
