Healthy Delights Greens with Probiotics Review

Healthy Delights Greens + Probiotics Review

Greens with Probiotics is a superfood formula produced by the popular US supplement brand Healthy Delights. The formula consists of over 38 superfood ingredients, including both fruit and vegetables, as well as probiotics and digestive enzymes.

Healthy Delights claims that the formula will naturally boost energy levels, improve gut health and supply a vast range of nutrients from the superfoods within the formula. In addition, the formula is vegan and USDA-certified organic!

The formula is also low-cost, which to me seems too good to be true, and maybe it is!

So, I’m really keen to take a closer look at this formula and see if it really does pack a punch, or whether it falls flat.

If you’re thinking of purchasing the formula, or you’re also wanting to figure out if this formula is as good as it sounds, check out my full Healthy Delights Greens with Probiotics Review below.

Healthy Delights Greens with Probiotics First Impressions

Looking at the Healthy Delights website, I can’t say I’m initially blown away by the brand. Although the brand is certainly popular and undoubtedly successful, the branding of the website doesn’t seem to display this. I’m particularly averse to the white writing in front of a light blue background – you can’t see what it says!

However, the blog and the extensive list of answered FAQs are useful.

Looking at the Greens with Probiotics formula, I’m more impressed! The branding of the tub itself looks sleek, exciting, and punchy. It really does give you the feeling that you want to look inside and take a closer look!

However, I’m not overly impressed that there’s a lack of information about the formula on the website, and I also find it a little odd that you can’t purchase the formula through the website.

Background on Healthy Delights

Healthy Delights is a US-based brand that was founded in 1992 by the CEO of Slimfast, Chris Tisi. In 2014, the company became part of the Kainos Capital group, a company that owns and runs multiple brands in both the supplement and food industry.

The Healthy Delights Organic Greens with Probiotics Formula is definitely one of the brand’s bestsellers, with the Organic Reds and Probiotics formula, and Power Beets formula also on the bestseller list!

Healthy Delights Greens with Probiotics Benefits

There isn’t actually a lot of information about the greens formula on the Healthy Delights website or on Amazon. In fact, there’s hardly anything, which isn’t very useful!

The brand simply claims that the greens will provide nutrients, and the probiotics and digestive enzymes will ease digestion and improve overall gut health. On the side of the formula’s tub, it also says that the formula will boost energy levels.

I have to say I’m quite disappointed that the brand hasn’t added any more information about the formula’s health benefits, not just because it’s not very transparent, but also because if a potential consumer isn’t aware of how they can benefit from the formula, they’re very unlikely to buy it!

Healthy Delights Greens with Probiotics Ingredients

Healthy Delights Greens contains over 50 ingredients, with 38 superfood ingredients, and of course, probiotics. Unfortunately, all of the ingredients within the formula exist within proprietary blends, which is disappointing because it reduces the brand’s transparency with the consumer.

Nonetheless, let’s first take a look at the ingredients label, because I’ll be taking a look at the efficacy of the formula later on in this review.

Here is the complete list of Healthy Delights Greens with Probiotics ingredients:

  • Organic Greens Proprietary Blend (7,920mg) – Organic Wheatgrass, Organic Oat Fiber, Organic Pea Fiber, Organic Blue-green Algae (Spirulina), Organic Beet, Organic Apple Peel, Organic Blue Agave Inulin, Organic Jerusalem Artichoke Inulin, Organic Alfalfa Leaf, Organic Barley Grass, Organic Red Raspberry, Organic Strawberry, Organic Carrot, Organic Cranberry, Organic Blueberry, Organic Apple, Organic Broccoli, Organic Kale, Organic Spinach, Organic Green Cabbage, Organic Parsley, Organic Pomegranate, Organic Acai Fruit, Organic Blackberry, Organic Tomato, Organic Black Raspberry, Organic Cherry, Organic Acerola Extract, Organic Apple Pectin, Organic Banana, Organic Flaxseed, Organic Mango, Organic Papaya, Organic Peach, Organic Pear, Organic Pineapple, Organic Watermelon.
  • Probiotic Blend (1 Billion CFU) – Bacillus Coagulans, Lactobacillus Rhamnosus, Bifidobacterium Bifidum, Bifidobacterium Longum, Lactobacillus Acidophilus, Lactobacillus Casei, Streptococcus Thermophilus.
  • Digestive Enzyme Blend (35mg) – Fungal Amylase, Amyloglucosidase, Fungal Protease, Acid Protease, Cellulase, Lipase.
  • Other Ingredients – Organic Guar Gum, Citric Acid, Organic Natural Berry Flavor, Organic Rebaudioside A (Stevia), Organic Rice Hull Concentrate.

Here is the supplement facts label:

How does Healthy Delights Greens with Probiotics Taste?

Healthy Delights Greens is flavored and sweetened using organic guar gum, citric acid, organic natural berry flavor, and stevia extract.

Although I haven’t actually tasted the formula myself, it’s clear that the reviews concerning the taste of the formula are mixed.

Some think it’s super tasty and the flavoring ingredients do a great job of covering the grassy ingredients, whereas others think the formula tastes too much like stevia, to the point where it’s unappetizing.

Side Effects

On the FAQs on the Healthy Delights website, the brand recommends that women who are breastfeeding and those who are diabetic consult a doctor before consumption.

I would also add that if you’re on any medication, pregnant, under 18, or you have a medical condition, you should consult a doctor before consumption.

Does Healthy Delights Greens with Probiotics Work?

The Healthy Delights Greens formula contains proprietary blends, which are blends that contain multiple ingredients. The problem with proprietary blends is that only the amount of the blend as a whole is shown, rather than the amount of each ingredient within the blend.

Therefore, it’s impossible to know whether the ingredients are sufficiently dosed and whether the formula will actually provide the benefits that the brand claims it will.

Some of the ingredients within the formula may be sufficiently dosed and provide benefits to the consumer,but the other ingredients within the formula will likely be underdosed.

However, we can take an estimated guess as to whether the formula will work or not by looking at the standard recommended doses of some of the ingredients within the blend and comparing them to the size of the blend.

For example, the Organic Greens Proprietary Blend totals 7.92g, and the combined recommended doses of wheatgrass, spirulina, blue agave inulin, and artichoke inulin alone equals 14g, and these are only four of the ingredients within a 38 ingredient blend. Therefore, all of the ingredients can’t be sufficiently dosed.

Overall, some of the ingredients within the formula may be sufficiently dosed and provide benefits to the consumer, but the other ingredients within the formula will likely be underdosed and therefore not provide health benefits.

Healthy Delights Greens with Probiotics Reviews

Healthy Delights is available to purchase on Amazon. In fact, that’s the first place that the brand recommends people purchase the product. Therefore, product reviews are abundant on there, with nearly 1,000 customer reviews!

Let’s take a look at a selection of these reviews below.

Not your typical greens drink. They taste really good, they don’t cause me to have digestive issues. They’re really easy to fit into my day. 5-star reviewer

We have used this product among others to try and are able to say that the taste of this product is okay. The only complaint I have about this product is the length of time it takes to have it delivered. 4-star reviewer

The taste is horrible.Pure Stevia, impossible to mask. 1-star reviewer

Money-Back Guarantee / Returns Policy

Healthy Delights doesn’t provide a money-back guarantee, and the return policy of the site through which you buy the product may differ.

Where to buy Healthy Delights Greens with Probiotics?

You can buy Healthy Delights Greens from Amazon, and Vitamin Shopee. In stores in the US, it’s available in Walmart, GNC, Sam’s Club, and Kroger.

Is It Worth The Price?

Healthy Delights Greens with Probiotics is sold in tubs that contain 30 servings, with a 10g serving size. The product is sold through Amazon and on Vitamin Shoppe online, not through the Healthy Delights website. On Amazon, there is a subscription option for the formula, providing a discounted price.

So, we’ll take a look at the different price options on there.

One tub of Healthy Delights Greens formula costs $27.96, meaning the cost per serving of the formula is $0.93.

If you subscribe to the formula, one tub costs $26.56, meaning the cost per serving works out at $0.89.

The formula is certainly cheap in comparison to other super greens formulas on the market.

However, in my opinion, I would rather spend a little more money on a supplement that has a fully disclosed label and definitely contains sufficiently dosed ingredients.

The Bottom Line

When you hear about a formula that contains such a vast number of superfood ingredients, as well as being USDA-certified organic, vegan, and low-cost, you’re initially very impressed!

That’s how I felt when I heard about the Healthy Delights Greens with Probiotics formula, so I had to review it!

However, unfortunately, on closer inspection, the formula is much less impressive. The fact that the formula has no real list of benefits is made up of proprietary blends, and will most likely not contain sufficiently dosed ingredients is enough for me to not recommend the formula.

Instead, you should look for a high-quality greens formula that has an array of health benefits associated with it, has a fully disclosed label, and definitely contains sufficiently dosed ingredients!
