Let’s Talk Green Superfood Supplements
Studies show that it is ideal to get your daily dose of vitamins and minerals from food-based sources. Although eating a healthy diet is at the forefront of most of our minds, at times it can be difficult to ensure that we are getting all the nutrients that our body needs.
Green superfood supplements are an excellent way to get a concentrated dose of plant-based nutrients in a convenient single serving, with no prep required. Whether you use green superfood powders to amplify an already healthy diet. Or, to increase your daily dose of healthy greens – you cannot go wrong adding one of these nutrient powerhouses to your daily routine.
What is Opti-Greens 50?
Opti-Greens 50 is one of the most complete green superfood powders on the market. It provides you with all the nutrients you need to feel your very best, in one simple serving size. Opti-Greens 50 was created to improve your immunity, digestive health, decrease bloating, balance blood sugar, support metabolic health and boost energy levels, amongst numerous other benefits.
Through its unique blend of 50 premium ingredients, the nutrients in this product are hand-chosen to help support all your wellness goals. Plus, all of these ingredients are low-temperature processed to retain their highest levels of naturally occurring nutrients. By ensuring the ingredients are processed at low temperatures they have optimal bioavailability, which means that your body will be able to get the most benefit from them possible.
Opti-Greens 50 has 5 different ingredient blends that comprise the product: The Green Superfood Complex, Phytonutrient Complex, Glycemic Balance Blend, Plant Enzyme Blend, and Probiotic Blend. We will discuss these more in detail below.
Opti-Greens 50’s Green Superfood Complex & Phytonutrient Complex are filled with plant-based nutritional powerhouses that will provide you with the same amount of vitamins and minerals as a 2oz green juice. These complexes have been thoughtfully curated to target numerous health concerns. The Phytonutrient Complex is filled with powerful antioxidants and other immune-boosting ingredients such as elderberry, which will strengthen your body’s natural immunity.
Studies have shown that chronic inflammation can link to multiple illnesses and even weight gain, so Opti-Greens 50 includes ingredients, such as curcumin, which are proven to decrease inflammation. These blends also include chlorophyll which detoxifies the blood and balances the pH in your body. A unique feature of Opti-Greens 50 is its proprietary Glycemic Balance Blend, which will help to regulate your body’s glycemic response.
Studies have shown that regulating your body’s glycemic response can help with weight loss and has many benefits for your overall health. In addition, keeping your blood sugar balanced can give you lasting energy, without the crash. Opti-Greens 50’s Glycemic Balance Blend contains ingredients such as rice bran ( which is also a prebiotic) and the antioxidant alpha-lipoic acid, which studies have shown can lower blood sugar levels.
Opti-Greens 50 is rounded out with their Plant Enzyme Blend & Probiotic Blends which include 1 Billion CFU of 10 hand-selected strains of good bacteria and 16 digestive enzymes to promote good digestive health. These blends which help you to break down and digest food more efficiently and therefore prevent bloating. These blends are important to ensure that you are able to break down these nutrients, so your body can reap all their benefits. In addition, your gut plays an important role in your immune health, so these ingredients also lend to the immune-boosting effect of Opti-Greens 50.

How to use Opti-Greens 50
Simply put two scoops of Opti-Greens 50 powder into eight ounces of the liquid of your choice (water, juice, etc.) and mix to combine. It is recommended to drink Opti-Greens 50 immediately after mixing. Each tub of Opti-Greens 50 contains 30 servings of the product.
First Impressions and Taste
The Opti-Greens 50 packaging is bright white and very clean looking. It gives a clear description of the product and its many benefits. Upon opening the product, you are greeted with the aroma of fresh grass right away, due to the low-temperature processing.
We mixed up the recommended serving size of two scoops of Opti-Greens 50 in eight ounces of water. The product mixes easily with the water in a blender bottle. The consistency was smooth, without any clumping of the product. Green powders, in general, are not known to be a very pleasant tasting. However, as far as greens powders go Opti-Greens 50 has a nice, mild grassy taste, with a hint of natural berry flavor.
We prefer how the flavor of the Opti-Greens 50 isn’t masked under an overly sweet and synthetic tasting sweetener like other brands. This makes Opti-Greens 50 an excellent addition to any green smoothie, as it blends well and becomes undetectable amongst the other flavors. Opti-Greens 50 mixes well with water in a blender bottle and can also be mixed with fruit juices to add more of a sweet taste.
TIP: Our favorite way to drink Opti-Greens 50 is to add 2 scoops of 1st Phorm’s Opti-Reds 50 and then simply mix them up with water in a blender cup. The addition of the Opti-Reds 50 gives the blend a delicious raspberry flavor (and also gives you the additional benefits of the Opti-Reds 50). You can save some money by purchasing Opti-Greens 50 and Opti-Reds 50 together.
“Truly the best tasting greens supplement in the market! Doesn’t have a bad “im eating grass” taste and easy to drink.” – James Davis
• Numerous health benefits
• Much easier than trying to eat so many servings of greens/superfoods in your diet
• More comprehensive than a majority of the green powders on the market

• Pleasant taste
• High quality ingredients that are low-temperature processed to retain optimal bioavailability
• Crafted with care in the USA by a trustworthy manufacturer who ensures the quality of its products
• Opti-Greens 50 does not have a fat source, which makes it difficult to reap all the benefits of certain nutrients and fat-soluble vitamins. However, this can be addressed by taking your daily dose with a fat source e.g. blending it into a smoothie with some avocado, nut butter etc.
• This product is not suitable for anyone who is gluten-intolerant, as the product contains wheat
• More expensive than other green powders (although not the most expensive option on the market either)
• If you eat a clean plant-based diet you may already get a majority of the micronutrients from your diet
• Not quite as comprehensive as some of the more expensive options on the market (e.g. no adaptogenic mushrooms)
Is it worth the price?
Opti-Greens 50 costs $59.99 for a 30 day supply. Which means it costs around $2/per day. Opti-Greens 50 is by no means the cheapest greens powder on the market.

With Opti-Greens 50 you get the additional benefits of the Phytonutrient Complex, Glycemic Balance Blend, Plant Enzyme Blend and Probiotic Blend, which you will not find in less expensive options. This means that Opti-Greens 50 can take the place of a multivitamin, digestive enzyme, antioxidant supplement and probiotic in your wellness routine.
When you think of all those benefits, Opti-Greens 50 is definitely worth the $2/per day price tag. You also have the option to subscribe and save. The monthly subscription fee is $54.99/per month which is a savings of about $5 per month.
