Today we’re talking greens, lean greens.
Lean Greens are a company that sell supplements and they were kind enough to send me their greens powder. I’m not a huge supplement lover, I always forget to take tablets and can never get myself into a routine.. Although I’m not good at taking supplements I know that my body could really use the extra love so I was super excited to try this!
The thing that I absolutely love about this powder is the ingredients! Usually when I’m looking at supplements I worry about what I’m putting in my body as I never know what half the things they put in them are.. Here is the list of ingredients in the Lean Greens powder:
- Active Ingredients Include:
- Wheatgrass, Barley Grass, Spirulina, Chlorella, Alfalfa
- Spinach, Broccoli, Carrot
- Blackcurrant, Blueberry
- Digestive Enzyme Blend
- Green Tea Extract, Siberian Ginseng, Stevia Leaf
Other Ingredients: Maltodextrin
So as you can see everything on there looks pretty damn good for you. At first I didn’t know what Maltodextrin was but I researched it before I drank the powder! Rather than me get all sciencey with you, just google it if you’re interested.
I’m pretty lucky in the sense that I don’t really mind earthy tasting food, I love fresh green juices and most vegetables but I was a little nervous about the taste of this, I’ve heard some pretty nasty things about other green powders and I don’t deal well with bad tastes! I read up on some reviews and everyone was saying that it didn’t taste bad at all and I can vouch for that! It has a very subtle taste but it’s actually quite sweet. On the little card I was sent they advised that you drink it quickly and not sip it, I’m not too sure on the reasoning for this but if you do chug it down, you can barely taste anything! You drink the powder and water mixture first thing in the morning, I haven’t missed a day yet and it has become part of my routine!
The powder claims to rid you of sugar cravings, restore your gut health & end bloating and boost your energy levels naturally. All of this sounded so appealing to me, if you are a regular reader you’ll know I’ve suffered with stomach problems for some time now and my stomach is still healing from acid damage, I’m bloated a lot and because of the excess acid in my stomach I don’t drink anything with caffeine in! I have such a sweet tooth I don’t know if anything will ever stop me from wanting chocolate although I have felt less hungry while drinking this! I do notice a difference with my bloating and I have more energy throughout the day which is rare for me!
You can purchase the powder on its own or get it in a starter pack with a shaker, it’s your bog standard protein shaker but it’s all black so it masks the green colour of the liquid! They also sell other products like a good fats formula and a drift off formula.
If you ask me I really do think it is important to look after your health, especially your gut! Lean Greens is now part of my daily routine, it’s the first thing I do in the morning and I have loved the results so far. If you’re looking into green powders or are just interesting in bettering your health then I 100% recommend this company!
