BRF Super Greens Review

Battle Ready Fuel Super Greens Review

Battle Ready Fuel Super Greens contains dietary fibers, grasses, greens, and superfoods to help support your healthy diet. It’s one of 13 health and fitness supplements endorsed by Ollie Ollerton, an ex-SAS operative, author, and star of UK series SAS: Who Dares Wins.

I had the opportunity of meeting the owner of the Battle Ready Fuel brand, Stewart, last year at a conference. So, I managed to give BRF Super Greens a try and I was impressed with the taste if you like mint or peppermint then you will love it!

I am by no means SAS material, but I am curious to discover if the BRF Super Greens supplement packs a real superfood punch and a contender for my daily greens.

First Impressions

I am a fan of the BRF brand, the supplement tubs look pretty awesome. As well as stocking a comprehensive range of supplements they have protein snacks, and some branded shakers and water bottles.

The BRF Super Greens tubs are fairly large too each weighing 450 grams and containing 150 servings. And unlike many supplements you see online the actual real-life tubs look great too (as you can see in my picture above).

There is not a great deal of information shown on the tub instead you need to look at the information on the website.

Background on Battle Ready Fuel Limited

Battle Ready Fuel Limited have their registered office in Scotland and have been trading since July 2019. The BRF brand is fronted by a former SAS (special air service) veteran Ollie Ollerton, who starred in the hit UK series SAS: Who Dares Wins and has written several popular books.

Other special forces guys endorse the brand too, such as Jason Fox.

You can watch the story of how Battle Ready Fuel came about in the video below.

Recently Battle Ready Fuel has produced a range of protein bar snacks that are designed to be used on the go. They are low in sugar and carbs, contain more healthy fats, and importantly provide a good amount of protein.

Although keen, I haven’t had the opportunity to try the BRF protein bars yet as I can’t get a hold on them in Malaysia.

BRF Super Greens Ingredients

There are 15 ingredients in total in the BRF super greens formula, which include grasses, soya, fiber, and probiotics (these are listed below).

Each serving of Super Greens is only 3-grams, which is the smallest serving size I have seen in a greens supplement. This seems unusual when you consider the size of the tub weighs 450 grams but that’s because there are 150 servings in each tub.

The recommendation is to take between 1 and 3 servings each day, considering the serving size you would want to take more than one serving to get a more potent dose.

The full breakdown of the ingredients are listed on the label, here they are:

Apple Fibre Powder, Barley Grass Juice Powder, Chlorella Powder, Spirulina Powder, Alfalfa Powder, Beetroot Powder, Wheat Grass Powder, Raspberry Powder, Jerusalem Artichoke Powder, Dulse Powder, Apple Pectin Powder, Co-Enzyme Q10, Lactobacillus Acidophilus, Superoxide Dismutase, and Bifidus Bacteria (lactose-free).

When looking over a super greens powder label the first thing you notice is the big list of vitamins and minerals along with their amounts compared to the recommended daily amount (RDA). This is missing on this label, I am not sure why.

Instead, they list the breakdown of Carbohydrates ( 1.51 grams ), Fat (0.62 grams ), and Protein ( 0.52 grams ) per 3-gram and 100-gram serving. The amount of sugar per serving is not listed.

The formula is 100% vegan-friendly thanks to the use of a lactose-free digestive enzyme (Bifidus Bacteria).

How Does BRF Super Greens Taste?

It’s really easy to mix by scooping 3 grams (approx. 1 teaspoon) of powder, 1 to 3 times daily, into water or they suggest into any drink of your choice. You can even mix into meals.

I have to say that I did enjoy drinking it, no complaints there, but then again I am very much a fan of mint.

This is the reason why I used this flavor when developing my super greens supplement, it just tastes very refreshing and well healthy.

Side Effects

Side effects when drinking super greens supplements tend to very rare and so it’s very unlikely you would experience any unwanted experience with this brand.

Very sensitive people to probiotics or increased fiber in their diet could possibly experience mild digestive complaints, which would be the same for any similar product.

The formula contains gluten and cereals, and so it’s not advised for coeliacs to consume.

Does BRF Super Greens Actually Work?

The reason for taking a greens powder comes down convenience and being able to consume nutrient-dense veggies every day. The BRF Super Greens formula certainly has some good ingredients in the formula.

The benefits of Spirulina, Co-Enzyme Q10, Barley Grass Juice Powder, Beetroot Powder, and Chlorella have been well documented and in the right amounts have been shown to have significant health benefits.

I would like to have seen more information on the ingredients, especially in terms of the amounts used in the formula. Although common practice with super green formulas, the use of proprietary blends in supplements makes it impossible to know the dosage of each ingredient, which means you’re never completely sure how effective it will be.

This is the reason why I prefer to go for supplements that have transparent labeling and outline all ingredient weights in their supplement facts.

A minor omission on the label is that we don’t know if the Chlorella is of the cracked-cell variety. This is significant as Chlorella has a hard-wall making it hard to digest and so the cracked-cell version enables you to absorb the nutrients (Heathline).

The inclusion of probiotics is welcomed by many consumers looking at super greens supplements. I do question the effectiveness of having a probiotic blend in greens powders though, mostly on the basis that these ingredients tend to be very delicate and can be rendered ineffective in formulas with many ingredients.

That said, it’s not going to hurt having these within the formula.

BRF Super Greens Customer Reviews

There are no reviews on the official website for the Super Greens supplement.

I only tried the supplement a couple of times when I was chatting to the guys behind the brand, and so cannot comment on the long-term benefits. However, I can say with confidence it’s VERY tasty and super easy to mix and drink.

Money Back Guarantee / Returns Policy

There is a 60-day money-back guarantee that covers every order on the BRF range, which of course includes their Super Greens.

So, if you’re not happy with your order you can simply return the unused products in the original container within 67 days of when you received your order.

You receive a 100% refund minus the cost of any shipping.

Where to Buy BRF Super Greens?

You can buy Battle Ready Fuel Super Greens directly from the official website. The only other place is via the Bauer Nutrition store.

Is It Worth the Price?

Each tub of BRF Super Greens costs $43.99 which for a greens powder is super wallet-friendly.

On a single-serving daily basis, it’s super low at just 23 cents, however, you have to take into account the very low serving size which means you will want to take more than one serving per day.

Consuming three-servings will bump up the daily price to around 90 cents, which is still a great price for a greens powder. It just means either making it three times per day or mixing the greens powder into a larger serving.

My Verdict

Battle Ready Fuel Super Greens is by no means a perfect supplement but it’s pretty good, and the taste is pretty amazing.

The shortcomings are down to the small serving size which means to get a proper dosage you will most likely need to take 3 servings per day making each tub last 50 days, which is still pretty good to be fair.

On top of this is the use of a proprietary blend so that none of the powdered greens amounts are revealed. This means that as consumers we don’t exactly don’t the weight of each ingredient in the formula, which sparks a little doubt as to whether the right dosages are inside.

Battle Ready Fuel is a great brand and whilst it may lack the potency seen in other brands, it can help provide some of the micronutrients needed in your diet.
