Review: Lean Greens food supplement

[:en]lean greens review mommandy

Being a working mom of a toddler costs a lot of energy. In my quest to find the right balance between parenting, work and much needed me-time, I’m always interested in finding ways to feel more energized.

I’ve never used supplements before so I was curious about trying Lean Greens. A food supplement in the form of powder. You stir a scoop of powder in a glass of cold water, mix it and drink immediately.

You are supposed to get more energy from drinking it on a daily base.

“The alkalising ingredients found in Lean Greens, cause the body to function better, without it being stressed. Add to that the energy and metabolic ingredients, clients see increased energy levels, but without jitters or a crash.”

 

Other benefits of drinking Lean Greens are:

  • improved bowl movement
  • less bloating
  • less cravings

The package I received contained a big tub of Lean Greens powder (500 g, about 30 servings) and a Lean Greens shaker.

What’s in Lean Greens?

  • maltodextrin
  • spinach
  • wheat
  • grass
  • barley grass
  • alfalfa
  • chlorella
  • carrot powder
  • spirulina
  • broccoli
  • blueberry extract
  • blackcurrent extract
  • bromelain
  • amylase
  • protease
  • lactasse
  • lipase
  • cellulase
  • sweetener (steviol glycosides)
  • siberian ginseng
  • green tea

First taste

When I opened the tub I smelled it. It smelled a bit like oats with a hint of straw.

I put one scoop in the shaker with cold water and shook well.

It tasted like grass juice to me. Now, I have never drank actual grass juice. But I think that’s what grass juice would taste like. But I drank it anyway and proceeded the next morning.

The morning after I did the same thing again and the smell of the Lean Greens drink was just so awful that I actually didn’t want to drink it. But I had a few sips and boy it did not taste good. There was a sweet aftertaste. But not a nice one like after you’ve eaten chocolate but a gross aftertaste like medicine with artificial flavor. I contacted the company and told them about my experiences. They suggested using half a scoop with very cold water. So I did that the next day and it was a little bit better. But still, I couldn’t imagine myself drinking this every day for the next few weeks.

So all in all I tested Lean Greens for about a week. I don’t think that’s long enough to experience the benefits of the product. I did experienced more bowl movements but didn’t experience an increase in my energy level. Again, I just tested it for a week. I think your body needs to get used to the product for you to truly benefit from it.  So yeah, I quit after a week. I was resenting to have to drink the Lean Greens mixture in the morning. And I just didn’t want to do something that I resented.

However, Lean Greens does provide a full money back guaranty purely based on taste. Have I not been getting the product for free for reviewing purposes I would definitely use the money back guarantee. I think that’s the best service a company can give.

The Lean Greens tub I received costs 44,99 which will last you for a month. If I did like the taste of the product, having to pay this amount every month just for supplements would be above my budget.

Cons:

Taste

 

Pros:

Customer service

    Wow it is good you have tasted it and been so honest! I agree with the comment above; some of these supplements can be a bit of a con and not really do anything! Thanks for sharing with #bestandworst x

    Wow! Rather you than me. Rule of thumb, if it tastes like sh*t, it probably is…I’ve never seen the point of supplements. Why not just eat a balanced diet? I teach my toddler how to grow vegetables, and how to cook. Basic life skills that they can use, like reading writing and mathematics. £50 will get you enough seed for a whole years crop, and you can then get seeds from the crops for the next year.
