More Green Super Food Formulas

I order a fair amount of supplements from Swanson Vitamins on a regular basis. I have NOT previously ordered any of their green super food type formulas, but thought I would list a couple here for your consideration.

They carry several different brands of  "Super Food Green Powders" for folks on the go. The nice part about the powders is that you can mix these up in water and put them in a screw top drink jar with a straw and drink it during your daily commute, or perhaps make one up quickly for breakfast. You can throw a scoop of one of these into a blender or Vita Mixer along with some fresh fruit and or a whey protein powder and make it a complete liquid meal replacement.

Green Max Powder 35 servings and current cost $12.99 plus shipping

Barlean's Organic Greens $57.69 for 60 servings (2 months at one scoop per day)

GenEssentials Greens $37.69 for a one month supply or 30 servings

Green Supreme Fusion$21.22 for a one month supply or 30 individual servings

You can find Swanson Vitamins and supplements on line. Again it goes without saying that I do not receive any remuneration of any kind for suggesting their products. I simply am impressed with the overall quality of their supplements and their service.

There seems to be a lot of price difference in the multitude of green super food type drinks in the marketplace. I have seen some listed at over $100 for a 30 day supply and claiming to be the best on the planet and with claims that are difficult to prove or disprove from where I sit. I know most of us do not have $100 plus per month for a green supplement.

I DO THINK YOU SHOULD BE ON SOME SORT OF GREEN food supplement whether you use a product like the Super Ninja or a Vita Mixer and make your own from fresh fruits and vegetables,  or instead purchase one of the many green super food formulas available. READ your labels, READ the reviews and make your choice.

Especially if your are a type 2 diabetic, you need to do some research on your body's PH and how that affects diabetes. See my posts on Interstitial fluid and maintaining a slightly alkaline PH.

There is a body of evidence out there and several books on beating type 2 diabetes by getting your body's PH to slightly alkaline and staying there. Green smoothies whether home made or from a canned powder (OR BOTH) can be helpful. Even going to your health food store and purchasing a bottle of barley grass powder and adding it to a glass of water every day goes a long way to balancing your PH.


A wise man should consider that health is the greatest of human blessings, and learn how by his own thought to derive benefit from his illnesses.

I believe that if you're healthy, you're capable of doing everything. There's no one else who can give you health but God, and by being healthy I believe that God is listening to me.
