I recently spoke about my Oral Allergy Syndrome (OAS) and how it affects my day to day life and diet. Because of my allergies I often miss out on fresh fruit and veg, which is quite frustrating and means I take a heap of supplements to make sure I’m getting all that vitamin and mineral goodness.
The lovely people at Lean Greens sent me a tub of their Lean Greens Super Greens powder supplement to try so I thought I’d take the opportunity to give you my honest thoughts on it.
I was also interested to see how I would react to the product, given that I do normally react to spinach and this is a main ingredient in the Super Greens product.
I think the tub is a really good size, not OTT or over packaged. This product contains:
I’m particularly pleased to see that it contains digestive enzymes (Amylase, Protease, Lactase, Lipase, Cellulase) as I already take these and think they are really important for digestive health.
I have previously taken Spirulina so I was fully prepared for this to smell and taste less than pleasant, however I was really surprised how mild the smell was.
The powder has a slight green tinge and is well ground – smooth, not gritty like other similar products I’ve tried before.
Preparing the mixture was pretty easy – it directs to put 3 heaped teaspoons in a glass of water but I opted for a shaker personally.
Anyone who takes any kind of powder based supplement will know the struggle of lumps that won’t dissolve with a furious beating. This powder though was so fine it mixed really well, I left it for a few minutes and it didn’t sink to the bottom either so no nasty sludge surprises here.
Honestly, I was fully prepared for this to taste foul. But it wasn’t at all, it was palatable. I mean I’m not gonna be mixing jugs of it and savor it like it’s a margarita, but it isn’t gonna ruin my breakfast either so that’s a win to me.
I didn’t feel the need to neck it, it was mild, so happily sipped whilst I got on with eating my morning pro-oats.
Thankfully I had absolutely zero negative reaction to the drink so I was really happy about that, this seems like a great way for myself as an OAS sufferer to get my extra greens in
This product seems a really simple way to get some nutrients that I might otherwise miss out on because of my allergies.
I haven’t really felt much different than normal, but with all of these supplements my view is that I take them as a boost to my health and I would definitely consider a product like this be a great addition to my supplementation routine.
