Natural Ways Guardian Greens Review
What You Should Know
Guardian Greens by Natural Ways is a superfood supplement with micro-algae and phytonutrients. The manufacturer claims Natural Ways Guardian Greens will increase immunity and cleanse internal organs. We could not find any testimonials or research listed to back up these claims. Consumers have the power of the Internet behind them, so research and proof of claims is important for the success of any supplement.
Natural Ways lists all ingredients in Guardian Greens. The consumer can purchase the product directly from the manufacturer.
List of Ingredients
Phosphatidylserine, Gingko Biloba, Spirulina, Chlorella, Dunaleilla, Alfalfa Juice Powder, Red Beet Juice Powder, Rhubarb Juice Powder, Black Currant Powder, Red Clover Tops, Parsley Greens, Dandelion Greens, Watercress Greens, Milk Thistle Powder and Burdock Root Powder.
Many of the ingredients in Guardian Greens are typical of superfood supplements including spirulina, grass juices and grass powder. The main difference is the long list of diuretics included in Natural Ways Guardian Greens. Parsley greens, dandelion greens and burdock root powder are diuretics commonly used to relieve water weight gain. While there are healthy uses for diuretics, daily use is not one of them. Diuretics push fluid out of the body, regardless of whether or not water retention is occurring. This can quickly lead to dehydration and lowered potassium levels. Diuretics also dilute electrolytes, which may lead to muscle cramping. This includes cramping of the heart leading to irregular heartbeat.
The remaining ingredients supply a healthy source of vitamins, minerals, protein and essential fatty acids. These are all healthy choices, but none will improve weight loss or metabolism. If a dieter wants an all around immune booster and lean source of plant protein, this supplement would fit the bill if the diuretic ingredients were not included.
Natural Ways Guardian Greens sells for $37.46 for 150 grams of powder or 150 capsules. There is no mention if one is more bioavailable than the other.

Guardian Greens looked like another superfood supplement at first glance, until we noticed the diuretics. The dieter may see immediate weight loss from taking this supplement, but the weight is just water being pushed out of the body, not fat loss. Guardian Greens is not a safe supplement for all dieters.
