At the heart of the complex design of Greens Plus is the intricate ingredient list. In terms of weight loss, the only ingredients in any of the complexes that support any form of weight loss are the colon cleansers and the probiotic complex. The colon cleanse ingredients aim to remove cholesterol from the colon and from more than 17% insoluble fiber. The probiotic complex increases the digestive live cultures known as Acidophilus.
- Provides every food color suggested by the US Department of Agriculture food spectrum.
- Includes larges amount of fiber which leave the body feeling fuller longer.
- Increases the rate of natural digestion with Acidophilus.
- Provides no claims of weight loss or weight loss support.
- Aims more at total body health than weight reduction.
Greens Plus is a great product for the person aiming to improve overall body health. As a weight loss supplement, the Greens Plus product leaves much to be desired. The product is safe and effective as a nutritional supplement, but falls far short as a weight loss product.
