If you have ever heard of super greens, then you must be familiar with Organifi Green Juice. You might also have seen their videos by the founder, Drew Canole.
It was a digital marketing conference in which I came to know about this supplement. The speaker was Drew Canole, the founder of it. He delivered a very inspiring speech on his journey from a YouTuber to a supplement company owner.
I personally decided to take a look at it and review this product to know if it really stands out among other powdered green juices in the market. Although the tub has been recently updated, the formula is the same.
My First Impression:
Organifi is a very popular and well-known healthy lifestyle brand. Its products mainly focus on the body and mind. They market their supplements as a means of achieving balance and harmony in life while following the ‘’Organifi Way’’.
I really like the company and the buzz they create with the content they deliver. However, sometimes I’m not too fond of their overly touchy-feely approach, especially the founder.
I cannot deny the fact that Dre Canole is very passionate about the well-being and health of the mind. It seems great that the owner himself goes out and interacts much with the audience.
The cornerstone of the business is the FitLife blog and Organifi online shop. When opening the blog, we see that there are no recent articles except those added months ago. Perhaps, their focus is mainly on the video channel.
Drew’s YouTube channel has incredibly grown with over 500k subscribers, being started on how to juice. The journey began with the passion about juicing, and in a matter of time, it has grown into a very profitable and well-acknowledged brand with super green advocates.
Their flagship supplement is the Organifi Green Juice. However, they have now introduced many other items which include Protein mixes, Probiotics, Turmeric, Organifi Red Juice (anti-aging and energy booster), and Organifi Gold (claiming to aid sleep).
Organifi also supports Vitamin Angels. It is a charity that helps malnourished children. For every one Organifi Red Juice you buy, Organifi promises to save a child’s life. That’s a great initiative!
The company is also very active through e-mail. If you sign up for the newsletter, you will receive regular e-mails about their products and discuss in detail the benefits they offer. You can sign up for the newsletter from the blog or store.
Organifi Green Juice Ingredients:
Organifi Green Juice comes in 30 servings, with each scoop being 9g in size. The bottle itself weighs 270g.
Organifi Green Juice has two proprietary blends, an alkaline greens blend, and a superfood blend. These two ingredients account for 6.55g out of the 9g serving.
The other ingredients include monk fruit, orange, mint, and organic lemon juice. All these ingredients are for flavoring and dietary fiber.
The use of proprietary blends is not good because we don’t know the exact amount of each ingredient in the blend. We are relying on Organifi to put sufficient quantities of ingredients for us to be effective, and not knowing the exact amount feels a bit frustrating to us. We all know that sufficient quantities don’t always put in the right amount of ingredients!
However, we can rest assured with the fact that the supplement is USDA certified, and all the ingredients used in it are organic.
The blends and their ingredients are mentioned below.
· Super food proprietary blend (1.45g):
Organic Ashwagandha (root) extract, Organic Turmeric, Organic Coconut (fruit) water powder, Organic Red beet (root).
· Alkaline greens proprietary blend (5.1g):
Organic Wheatgrass juice powder, Organic Chlorella (whole plant) (Chlorella Vulgaris), Organic Spirulina (whole plant), Organic Wheatgrass, Organic Matcha Green Tea (leaf) (Camellia Sinensis), and Organic Horseradish Tree (leaf) (Moringa Oleifera).
Organifi Green Juice Taste:
If you have ever tasted a green superfood powder, you would have been disgusted because they taste awful. You feel like drinking chalky and glassy water, pretty much disgusting!
However, you have to face this challenge every day, with all super greens drink, to make it palatable for consumption. According to the customer’s feedback, the taste of mint in Organifi Green Juice feels refreshing and suppresses the unpleasant taste to some extent.
Organifi Green Juice side effects:
If you have never taken a greens powder before, a new supplement of this type might cause mild digestive problems.
On the whole, Organifi Green Juice is considered safe and well-tolerated. Only a few customers have reported any side effects.
Does Organifi Juice Work?
If you have read any other reviews about this supplement, you would have guessed my answer.
If we think that the ingredients aren’t a big issue, then let us focus on the benefits offered by Organifi Green Juice.
Besides the usual green superfoods like Spirulina and Wheatgrass, we are happy that Organifi Green Juice contains other beneficial and potentially safe ingredients like Ashwagandha and Chlorella.
My favorite ingredient of this supplement is Ashwagandha root due to its incredible benefits. It helps to calm down the body during anxiety and helps it to react better to stressful situations. Such adaptogenic ingredients are great for the immune system as well. According to research, Ashwagandha has a very positive effect on people whose immune system does not function properly.
A daily dose of 300 – 500mg of Ashwagandha is enough to enjoy the benefits. However, lower amounts may help in some cases.
I really liked the addition of Chlorella in this supplement as well because this underwater algae has many nutritional benefits. It is a great source of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fiber, and protein.
Chlorella has many types, but the one commonly used in supplements is Chlorella Vulgaris. This type is also used in Organifi Green Juice. However, for Chlorella to be effective, the ‘cracked cell wall’ variety should be preferred. The reason for this is that the cell wall is not broken down by digestion, so none of the nutrients will be available. Organifi has not mentioned which variety it has used in the alkaline blend, which puts us in doubt.
Researchers claim that the recommended dosage of cracked cell wall variety should be 2-3g per day for the maximum benefits of this ingredient.
The official website has a great many reviews on this product with many satisfied customers. However, to check whether the reviews are cherry-picked, I headed on to check them on Amazon. Besides the high price on Amazon, the customers did not stop buying it, and this product contains almost 5000 ratings, making Organifi Green Juice one of the best sellers there.
The majority of customers were satisfied with this supplement. However, some were not satisfied and gave it one star out of five.
According to customers, many experienced a quick energy boost after using the supplement for one week. Although it is expensive, people say that it is worth the money. They really like the minty taste as it gives them a refreshing feeling. However, some customers did not like the taste at all and said that only vegetable-lovers would like the taste.
One negative review was from a customer who did not read the label before starting its use and faced a bad reaction. The customer did not consume the powder within 60 days and got ill after drinking it.
Organifi offers a 60-day return policy on all purchases from the official website. The condition is to return all the partial or empty bottles within 60 days to the purchases date in order to get a refund.
If you are not satisfied with the product, the return policy will be fulfilled, and you will get your money back on fulfilling the conditions.
Where can I buy Organifi Juice?
You can buy Organifi Green Juice from the official website as well as other online platforms. The official website is mostly preferred because it stocks the whole Organifi supplement range.
The official website also offers great discounts on buying more than one product. A single bottle will cost $69.99. You can save $59 when buying three bottles and $169 on buying six bottles.
Also, you can get your bottle automatically delivered every 30 days by clicking on the ‘’subscribe and save’’ option. You will save 15% on your order and get one bottle at $59.46 per month.
Organifi Green Juice is also available on Amazon. However, the price is high, and you get one bottle for $73. With the monthly ‘’subscribe and save’’ option, you will get each bottle for $69 every month.
Organifi Green Juice is also available in stores.
Is it worth the price?
Organifi Green Juice is at the higher end for super greens costing between $60 and $80. The price depends on where you buy it from.
Some customers claimed that the quantity of green powder in their bottle was less.
However, it is much better than other green powders I have reviewed so far. Having fewer ingredients is okay if they are in high quantities.
Is Organifi Green Juice gluten-free?
Yes, Organifi claims that its green juice is gluten-free. However, we cannot say it with surety because it is difficult to detect whether or not gluten is introduced in the manufacturing process.
Does Organifi Green Juice help to lose weight?
Although there is a huge amount of vitamins, nutrients, and minerals in Organifi Green Juice, it is not a weight-loss product. However, you may experience the loss of a few pounds while supplementing this product.
It is not a meal replacement drink either. However, drinking it on an empty stomach can help reduce appetite, which will minimize calorie intake. Through the intake of nutrients, you are more likely to get the benefits of improved digestion and absorption.
Is Organifi Green Juice safe during pregnancy?
Unless your doctor advises it, we recommend avoiding such supplements when pregnant or breastfeeding. Actually, most ingredients are not considered safe to consume during pregnancy because of their adverse side effects.
Does Organifi Green Juice break a fast?
Some fasting advocates suggest that taking it under 30 kcal will not break a fast. However, I prefer to take zero calories and just drink water and black coffee. If you are fasting, you can drink Organifi Green Juice prior to your first meal of the day.
Does Organifi Green Juice have caffeine?
Organifi Green Juice does not contain caffeine itself. However, it is present in one of the ingredients, matcha green tea. So, if you are sensitive to caffeine, make sure not to drink it after 3 pm in the afternoon to avoid insomnia.
Organifi Green Juice contains very promising ingredients that don’t make it taste bad. This makes this supplement worth the price. The one problem we are facing is the lack of ingredient transparency. We don’t know whether or not the ingredients are potent. Therefore, we cannot guess how effective Organifi can be.
The founder of the company, Drew Canole, is very passionate about his supplements. But does Organifi stand out from the super greens crowd?
If you find the ingredients appealing and want a superfood top-up, then Organifi can be just the super greens for you. This is one of the better super greens I have seen up till now. However, due to the high price and number of ingredients, I would expect more from my superfood drink.
