Isotonix Complete Greens Review

Isotonix Complete Greens Review

Isotonix Complete Greens, produced by the company Market America, is a superfood formula that contains a wide range of super greens, from alfalfa and chlorella to wheatgrass and broccoli.

The ingredients within the formula are supposed to support the digestive system, boost the immune system, provide a wide range of nutrients and improve overall health and wellbeing.

The formula is non-GMO, gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, and suitable for those on a vegan and vegetarian diet, so it’s suitable for a wide range of people to consume regardless of their dietary requirements.

Produced by Market America, a multi-level marketing US-based company, it’s going to be interesting to take a closer look at the formula and see if it’s really as great as the company says, or if it’s a scam used by people trying to make a profit!

If you’re thinking of buying and consuming this Isotonix formula, or you’re interested in taking a closer look at this supplement, check out my full Isotonix Complete Greens formula below.

Isotonix Complete Greens First Impressions

As soon as you take a look at the Isotonix website, in my opinion, it’s clear that the company is a multi-level marketing company. The clinical looking photos, the lack of nutrition information, and the absence of personality, all seem unattractive to me, so my first impression isn’t great.

However, the information that the company provides about the Isotonix Complete Greens formula is useful and makes me feel a little more hopeful that this formula could actually be impressive. There’s clear and concise information about the ingredients within the formula, the benefits of the formula, and FAQ’s are answered well.

Overall, I’m not overly impressed by the company, but the formula itself doesn’t actually look too bad, so hopefully, when I take a closer look at it I’ll be impressed.

Background on Isotonix/Market America

Market America, the supplier of Isotonix supplements, was founded in 1992 by JR and Loren Ridinger. The company is a multi-level marketing company (also known as a pyramid scheme). I’m opposed to MLM businesses, just because for most of them, it’s more about profit than it is about producing powerful products.

Nonetheless, clearly other people aren’t put off by it because the company has made over $5.5 billion USD in sales since being founded, and the brand claims that individuals that sell Isotonix have made $2.9 billion USD in commissions and estimated retail profits.

Isotonix Complete Greens Benefits

There’s actually a lot of information on the Isotonix website about the benefits that are associated with the formula, which is great to see. The formula is supposed to support a healthy digestive system, increase energy levels, support detoxification, and support the immune system.

As well as providing this information about the overall benefits of the formula, there’s also information about the benefits associated with each ingredient.

For example, “Broccoli powder helps support the nutrient value of a diet with an adequate amount of whole plant foods. It contributes to supporting and maintaining the body’s health.”.

This is useful for potential customers with little super greens knowledge.

Isotonix Complete Greens Ingredients

Isotonix Complete Greens contains 14 ingredients, all of which are shown on the fully disclosed ingredients label. The amount of each ingredient is rather small, which is concerning even at first glance. However, I’ll be looking into the efficacy of the formula later on in this review.

Here is the complete list of ingredients:

  • Organic Spirulina (350mg)
  • Organic Wheatgrass (300mg)
  • Organic Barley Grass (225mg)
  • Organic Alfalfa Grass (225mg)
  • Organic Chlorella (225mg)
  • Organic Brocolli Powder (75mg)
  • Organic Spinach Powder (75mg)
  • Organic Cabbage Powder (25mg)
  • Other Ingredients – Fructose, Citric Acid, Malic Acid, Natural Orange Flavor, Silicon Dioxide, And Vanilla Flavor

Here is the supplement facts label:

How does Isotonix Complete Greens Taste?

Flavored with citric acid, malic acid, orange flavoring, vanilla flavoring, and fructose, Isotonix Complete Greens is obviously sweet. Some people like the formula, but others are completely put off by the sweetness.

A lot of consumers also say that the formula fizzes, causing digestive problems, which is abnormal and definitely concerning!

Side Effects

Isotonix warns that if you’re taking warfarin, any antiplatelet medications, or prescription medications, you have a medical condition, you’re pregnant or you’re breastfeeding, you should consult a medical professional before consumption.

I would also suggest that if you’re under 18 you may want to consult a medical professional before consumption too.

Does Isotonix Complete Greens Work?

Surprisingly, for a formula that’s produced by an MLM company, it has a fully disclosed ingredients label. This means that we can see how much of each ingredient resides within the formula, and therefore we can compare these amounts to the recommended daily doses, seeing if the formula contains sufficiently dosed ingredients.

Unfortunately, it appears that the formula doesn’t contain anywhere near the recommended dose for the ingredients that do have a standard recommended dose.

seems like the formula contains insufficiently dosed ingredients and may not provide the benefits that it’s supposed to.

For example, the formula contains 350mg spirulina, when the recommended dose is between 1-3g (Source), it contains 300mg of wheatgrass when the recommended dose is 3g, and it contains 225mg of chlorella when the recommended dose is 2g.

Therefore, the formula is insufficiently dosed and may not provide the benefits that the consumer is hoping for when purchasing the product.

The other thing that really concerns me about this formula is that for every serving (10g), there is 6g of added sugar.

This is a ridiculously high amount of sugar, and the negative effects from this sugar may completely take away from the benefits that the formula is supposed to provide.

Overall, it seems like the formula contains insufficiently dosed ingredients and may not provide the benefits that it’s supposed to.

Isotonix Complete Greens Reviews

Isotonix Complete Greens is available on Amazon, but there are only five customer ratings, and only one customer review, so there’s not a lot to look at! However, the formula only scores 3.6 stars out of 5 stars, which isn’t a good sign.

The Isotonix website has numerous customer reviews, and although these reviews could be biased, they’re all we have to go off apart from the one Amazon review, so we’ll take a look at some of those too.

Let’s take a look at the review from Amazon, and the reviews from the Isotonix website below.

I’m so busy and can’t get enough vegetables & fruits from my meals so I always take the complete green to supplement. It tastes great and I feel great with this product.5-star reviewer

I as much as I enjoy this new green product. I would prefer it not to bubble with a fizz so much!!! With stomach acid problems it wasn’t the best for me. Should be made more like a shake base. Other than that I give it 3 stars. Hope you guys will consider it my request.3-star reviewer

The longer I took this product the sicker I became. Sending back for a refund.1-star reviewer

Money-Back Guarantee / Returns Policy

Isotonix doesn’t offer a money-back guarantee. The return policy of the company is vague, with the policy stating that “Most items purchased from Market America through Isotonix.com may be returned for a full refund”.

In addition, a refund is only available if you return the product in its original condition and within its original packaging – the outer packaging can’t even be opened, otherwise, you may not qualify for a refund.

Where to buy Isotonix Complete Greens?

You can buy Isotonix Complete Greens from the Isotonix website, from Amazon, or from third party Isotonix retailers in the company’s MLM scheme.

Is It Worth The Price?

Isotonix Complete Greens is sold in tubs that contain 30 servings of formula. One tub costs $49, meaning the cost per serving works out at $1.63.

You can also subscribe to the formula, choosing to receive it as often as you like, and if you choose to do this you will save 5%. This means that the subscription tub costs $46.55, and the cost per serving works out at $1.55.

If this formula contained sufficiently dosed ingredients and didn’t have so much sugar in it, I would say that this product is probably reasonably priced, as it’s at a mid-range price level in comparison to other super greens formulas on the market.

However, since the formula doesn’t contain sufficiently dosed ingredients and contains so much sugar, I have to say that I don’t think this formula is worth the price that it’s sold for.

The Bottom Line

Unfortunately, my concerns about this formula being produced by an MLM company have been proved right, because it seems as if this formula has been produced simply for easy profit, rather than to actually benefit people and provide them with a nutritious supplement.

With 6g of added sugar per serving, insufficiently dosed ingredients, a fairly expensive price tag, and some really negative consumer reviews, I would certainly not purchase or consume this formula.

I would recommend you to look elsewhere and choose a super greens formula that has a fully disclosed label and actually contains sufficiently dosed ingredients, without the added sugar.
