Consuming 20 servings of fruits and vegetables in one 8 ounces glass of water is certainly the easiest way to get your daily nutrients. And that’s exactly what Nutridyn Fruits & Greens supplement claims you can do with their nutrient-rich superfood formula.
Their formula contains natural fruit and vegetable extracts, vitamins, enzymes, and symbiotic intestinal flora that’s high in antioxidants, lignans, and phytonutrients.
NutriDyn Fruits & Greens superfood claims to support energy levels, body detoxification, immune system, aid digestion, recovery and repair, fat burning, and even longevity.
I am keen to see if this proprietary superfood blend really packs the health punch it claims and if choosing this fruit and greens powder is a wise investment in your health and your money.
To be honest, my first impressions were not that great. This is mainly because I found browsing the official website really unfriendly, clunky, and not that informative.
I was also a little confused as to why such a company would stock its own branded supplements alongside other companies’ brands. This is unusual and I have never seen this before, but this doesn’t mean that Nutridyn’s products are no good!
Nutridyn does produce a large of supplements that address pretty much every health and sports performance issue you could face.
As well as the powder you can also find the NutriDyn Fruits & Greens TO GO – Starter Kit, which includes the full selection of flavors in an easy to carry sachet.
Background on Nutridyn
The company has been around for some 35 years now although this particular green superfood seems less popular in the last few years, just going off the drop off in reviews from customers online.
Nutridyn received an FDA warning in 2016 for making claims on its website and product labels that the FDA regarded as “unapproved new drugs”.
You can read the full complaint here on the FDA website (it’s not too exciting though).

Each scoop is 10 grams and has a LOT OF INGREDIENTS inside – I counted over 50 in all!
This is a lot of ingredients to cram into a serving size of 10 grams.

Here is a picture of the full Fruits & Greens supplement label.
The nutritional breakdown will vary according to the flavor, this label is for the Strawberry/Kiwi tub.
Each tub has between 27-30 servings, which I assume really just depends on how accurate you are at scooping and mixing each serving.
Most of the greens powders I have reviewed breakdown the vitamin and minerals within the formula, with Nutridyn though I could only find Vitamin C, Calcium, Iron, and Sodium.
There will be vitamins and minerals within the other ingredients although how much will depend upon their weight, which unfortunately we don’t know.
How Does Nutridyn Fruits & Greens Taste?
There are flavors to suit everyone’s taste with Nutridyn. The nine flavors include Berry, Pink Lemonade, Grape, Original Mint, Green Tea/Melon, Chocolate Peppermint, Strawberry & Kiwi, Chocolate and Espresso.
The NutriDyn powder is easy to take you simply mix 1 scoop in 8 fluid ounces of chilled water daily.
The fruit and greens powder has Stevia and citric acid to sweeten the taste.
There are unlikely to be any associated side effects with this supplement unless you’re not used to taking probiotics and/or additional fiber in your diet.
A brief mention of the inclusion of Green Tea Leaf Extract though, if you’re incredibly sensitive to caffeine then depending on the amounts used in this formula you could suffer mild side effects from this.
Other than that, if you’re well and don’t have pre-existing medical conditions or taking medication then you should be fine to take.
Does Nutridyn Fruits & Greens Actually Work?
Once you have researched a few greens powders to get to recognize the popular “go-to” superfoods such as Chlorella Cracked Cell Wall Powder, Alfalfa Herb Powder, and Spirulina Powder. These are all included in the Nutridyn formula.
There are certainly some great ingredients in this Fruits & Greens supplement powder but my concern is the sheer number of ingredients packed in this formula will impact the potency of the product.
To illustrate this point I want to look at the “Vegetable Antioxidant Blend” in particular, mainly because it’s easiest to demonstrate underdosing when you look at proven ingredients with research to support their claims.
Spirulina is within this blend and second from last, which means that the amount of Spirulina in this blend is in the lowest amount. It’s a legal requirement for ingredients to be listed in the order of weight within a blend. So, we know in the “Vegetable Antioxidant Blend” that Carrot is the main ingredient by weight, followed by Beet Root powder, etc. you get the idea.
According to Healthline the standard daily dose of spirulina is 1–3 grams.
There is clearly nowhere near the right dosage of Spirulina in this formula as this blend is only 2 grams for the 14 ingredients inside it!
This is one example but the same could be said for most of the ingredients in the formula.
I believe that most of the ingredients will be underdosed in Nutridyn Fruits & Greens, which begs the question of how effective will it really be?
When I look at supplements I always want to know the ingredient amounts as this is the surest way of determining how likely it’s going to work.
Nutridyn Fruits & Greens Customer Reviews
On Amazon, there seems to be a lack of customer reviews in the last 18 months for this supplement. Here are a few of the customer reports to give you an idea of what others thought of this product.
Delicious! I add this to all my protein shakes. It tastes great & mixes well. Highly recommend!!5 star reviewer
I think the product delivers what it is supposed to in terms of nutrition. It dissolves well enough in water or smoothies. I do want to leave a review, however, warning anyone who doesn’t like overly sweet products to avoid this.2 star reviewer
So disappointed! This coffee flavor is awful tasting. It’s very very messy too. I’ve been using these fruits & greens for 12 yrs but this flavor is God Awful. Disgusting!1 star reviewer

Customers have 60-days in order to apply for a refund from the official website. Only supplement tubs that are still sealed and NOT opened are eligible for a refund.

Is It Worth the Price?
Price-wise NutrDyn is very wallet-friendly at $41.49 per tub that works out to a low price of $1.36 per day/serving.
Depending on where you purchase you will need to factor in shipping costs, which could pump up the price a little.
Orders over $49 in the US are eligible for free shipping.
Fruits & Greens have been on the market for some time and so clearly customers are enjoying it and continue to buy it.
The wide choice of flavors and the low price point certainly helps. Although it may seem like you’re getting a bargain when considering the large number of ingredients in the formula, I am concerned about whether the ingredient amounts will be included in sufficient amounts to have much impact.
If your diet is consistently poor and you’re on a budget then taking Nutrdyn would be better than nothing, but there are many other green superfood options to consider.
Nutridyn Fruits & Greens is okay but in my opinion, too many ingredients and lack of transparent labeling would put me off buying this supplement, especially when there are so many other brands to consider.
LifeHacker Guy Greens Recommendation
Please give me a few moments to shamelessly introduce my brand, SuperGreen TONIK.
I have researched a lot (and I mean a lot) of super greens out there but was disappointed with most of the ones I tried.
So, I went out and created my own with the help of a USA manufacturer because I wanted to ensure I got all my veggie goodness in the right amounts, and of course within a no-fuss single serving each day.
None of the other brands offered that.
Its the best out there (of course I would say that about my own), but let me tell you why...
- No hidden ingredient amounts - we have full disclosure labelling, so you know EXACTLY whats inside
- Sufficient ingredient amounts to make a difference - we include at least (if not more of) the minimum effective amounts supported by research
- Ingredients that also could boost mental clarity and shake off brain fog - to boost my at work and home
After many months I finally got a greens formula that fuels my body and mind for the day ahead.
But please dont JUST take my word for it, make up your own decision by checking out my review. (I TRY BE BE AS UNBIASED AS POSSIBLE )
