Athletic Greens is a green supplement that is pretty comprehensive. The ingredient list is available on the official website and we went through each and every ingredient searching for something new and spectacular, but there was nothing new. There are superfoods and superfruits; antioxidants and more antioxidants. Thrown in for good measure is a bit of protein, but as a whole greens supplement, you can expect more of the same – green taste and more green taste.

Product Features

Aside from the green ingredients in Athletic Greens we did notice dandelion root and burdock root. These are diuretics and completely unneeded in an athletic supplement. Diuretics force extra water out of the body, but athletes don’t need the help. Sweat is the most powerful diuretic of all.

So, all you do is mix Athletic Green with water or juice and you get all the fruits and vegetables you need in one serving. This product is not a weight loss supplement, but it could be used before a meal to reduce hunger and thus impact weight loss.

Advantages

  • Supplies all the fruits and vegetables the athlete could need.

Disadvantages

  • May not mix well in water.
  • May not taste the best.

Conclusion

Athletic Greens is a supplement advertised on multiple websites. When we see new products like this we look closely to see if the company is offering a good supplement or just pushing another generic supplement. This time around the formula is pretty sound, but the website leaves much to be desired. There are misspelled words and we did not find a product label.

    Day 5 and I feel terrible.. please excuse my language but I am tired, and very grumpy and my muscles ache.. is this normal when starting on Athletic Greens.. thought by now I was suppose to feel the opposite. VERY expensive stuff to make me feel this awful.
    Also how long after I have taken it on my empty stomach can I have a cup of coffee? I have avoided any till I have breakfast approx. 45 minutes to an hour after.

    I’ve ben using Athletic Green just about 3 weeks, it has done remarkable things, allergies as I live in the South(loranger,Louisiana, humidity this time of year is tough, besides the pollen at its peek. I have noticed remarkable changes in some injured basketball figures to which I had arthritis, it has diminished, there is no more swelling or pain or knuckle joint soreness, varicous veins sems to be disappearing, and there just some miraculous things going on. Energy level is astronomonical. But I maintain a low fat diet and try to exercise three times a week. Drink plenty of water. Gave some to my Grandsons who play baseball for his extra mobility and strength to maintain his pitching thru the entire game. As I believe that it has some repairing substances for muscles and ligaments. Its a natural source,God created, what could be better. Mix with *ounces of cold water mix thoroughly, not bad. Try it.

    just now finishing my 21 day trial. Was very worried about the supplement, but must admit can’t wait to get my next bag. I have lost a total of 17 pounds. I use my nutrabullet drink in the morning after my tablespoon of Athletic Greens. Have actually mix in my juice, flavor is fine in water or juice, no bitter aftertaste at all.

    I am not looking for a supplement to lose weight. It is the best supplement for your health that I have ever used. Because they misspelled a few words will not alter what they do for my wellness. Who cares if a word is not properly spelled. How does it lower the rating?

    ATHLETIC GREENS IS A COMPLETE RIP OFF!!!!! They send you what they call a FREE trial… IT IS NOT!! I decided to cancel my subscription shortly after i tried their product. not only was it one of the most vile tilting things i have ever tried to consume, it also had absolutely 0 effect! I called them back and informed them that i would be canceling and low and behold I find a $97.00 charge to my credit card!!! I called them back to ask what the charge was for and they said it was for my initial (FREE) order. After only 5 minutes on the phone the lady told me there was no way to get that money back! DONT let them scam you too!

    I use this is my morning smoothie (pineapple, mango, strawberries, almond milk & OJ) with no problems at all. I hate vegetables and this seems like a good fix and the taste isn’t bad all.

    Been having trouble with a bloated feeling and constipation..is this normal with taking Athletic Greens? Was in the hospital a week ago and had a Kidney Stone removed and at that time was on iv/meds. Iv only been taking Athletic Greens for 5 days but just not sure which is causing my bloated feeling and constipation? Just wondering? Don’t want to give up yet on the Athletic Greens =) Any help or suggestions would greatly be appreciated.

    Diane

    Me too! Wondering if this is common and if it passes? Also wondering if maybe there are foods to avoid for some number of hours after drinking Athletic Greens to prevent this reaction…?

    You probably just need to ingest more water. Its like vegetable/fruit overload, so with any type of fiber you always have to flush with lots of water.

    you need to drink lots of water sounds like you have a kidney infection. if you feel pain, go to the doctor for antibiotics (fever is also a symptom)

    I am day three of athletic greens..Taste, for me I am using water and take two shots a day, I had to use more water as it takes some getting use to..I did try it in juice and it was fine..Now that I know how much water to use, the taste is easier to handle.. Figure I am 50+, exercise regularly, no aliments..from other reviews I have read, it seems I should start to notice something after day six, but I will give this an honest try. I have tried others meal replacements and was left holding the bag as they did not produce what others have raved about..This was expensive, since for my size it is recommended to take two servings a day..I did not have an energy problem before or any issues with sleep..I do know that I don’t eat right and am really hoping this supplement does what it claims…more to follow..

    I was about to buy some Athletic Greens but got concerned about potential preservatives.Normally if you buy fruit and veg it doesn’t last a week before if passes the use by date. How long does this product last until it passes the use by expiry?
    Do you add preservatives so it lasts longer? I ask this as you advertise or these different ingredients ground down and put in to a jar. If I did this a home it wouldn’t last 1 week.

    wanda

    I also taking blood thin,
    will this product effect me.

    Dana

    I too am taking blood thinning medication(coumadin). The cardiologist advises me to be careful to monitor the vitamin k level as it will counteract the med’s potency. I use Athletic Greens daily–in 16 OZ of cold filtered water followed by another 16 OZ of cold water. I have noticed several good effects from curbing my morning hunger to meeting my recommended daily water intake.
