Feels Good - But is it really Good for You? Read the Label
August 5, 2018
When I took this, I all of the sudden found my metabolism had a boost, and I was going to the bathroom more. This is a supplement that is marketed for its natural content of vegetables, so I take it as if I am having a healthy and cheap alternative to a super green juice like at Jamba Juice.
One day, I began to question all of the content in processed foods I was eating and why I was sick. This product did not make me sick. However, after reading the label, I found these things:
-The vegetable content of the powder is 6.8 grams of one serving, which is 85% of the content of each serving.
-The rest of the content are laxatives and chemicals which help in digestion of normal and unhealthy foods along with processed fiber.
I would be very careful of taking this over a long period of time. There are only 7 grams of vegetables in one serving of powder. Compare this with one serving of lettuce, which is 55 grams or one serving of broccoli, which is 78 grams. This product is very well marketed as a product with a full day's worth of vegetables, which is a significant contrast from what doctors and most food pyramids recommend actual intake of a much higher weight of vegetable intake in a healthy diet. While it feels good after you take it, it is likely the fact that you are going to the bathroom to poop rather than the wonderful vegetables that are such an amazingly organically grown food packed with the finest nutrients which are causing you to feel good. The chemicals at the bottom of the label are found naturally in foods which aid in digestion and processing of food, including lactase. This product is much more scientific than it is natural.
Note: this is good for a person to use if they will not eat any vegetables in a day, for example if a person is traveling and won't be having much of a diet besides alcohol and bar/club food. However, vegetables are still needed if a person will get the remaining intake of Fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C and Vitamin K. When taken alone, a person would be missing 92% of Fiber not found in nuts or bread, 75% of Vitamin A, 43% of Vitamin C, and 12% of Vitamin K, which means one serving does definitely not provide a full day's recommended intake of vegetables.
