Dr. Ben's Super Green Food Powder

I have been drinking this green drink for almost 3 years now and I LOVE it!  It tastes not-so-hot but there are some kickin' ingredients in there.  It is 100% organic and wild-crafted with out any fillers (like apple pectin).  I have tried 6+ other green drinks and none compare to Dr. Ben's Greens. Some of the others are too sweet, taste artificial, have fillers, etc. 

I don't take it everyday because it is a bit pricey, but if I feel like I'm on the verge of getting sick, or feeling run down- I drink 1 TBSP with water (stir very well), gulp down without breathing through my nose. I also will gargle several times a day with warm salt water and a drop of white vinegar, avoid all refined sugars, and get lots of rest.

I also take Dr. Ben's Super Greens when I feel like I have eaten a lot of cooked or not-so-healthy food.  If I eat a big mixed green salad with quinoa and loads of fresh veggies, I skip the Green Drink.

I do not make any money from posting this. It's the best green drink I have found/tried and I wanted to share my findings! One bottle usually lasts me 6-7 months (again I don't drink it everyday).

The picture below shows the green drink on top of the water before stirring it in.  I decided to have some because I ate vegan nachos (organic corn chips, Daiya Cheese and Newman's Own Black Bean Salsa) for lunch... I definitely needed a good dose of greens.

  1. I just looked this up online and HOLY COW, it's expensive. Still want to try it, but I'll have to save up... don't see it sold in France either :/ French culture is so NOT into health food/alternative ways of eating. I'm doing my part, though ;)
