Organifi Green Juice Review

Organifi green juiceIf you have ever researched super greens then you have no doubt heard of Organifi Green Juice. Most likely you will have seen one of their videos or adverts by the founder, Drew Canole.

I first came across this supplement at a digital marketing conference three years ago when Drew Canole was one of the speakers. He gave an incredibly inspiring talk about his journey from youtuber to supplement company owner.

Organifi is very much a healthy lifestyle brand and their products focus on both the body and mind. They market their supplements as a means of achieving balance and harmony in life following the “Organifi Way”.

I take a look at Organifi Green Juice in my personal review to see if this product stands out amongst other super greens on the market.

First Impressions

I like this company and the buzz they create with the content they deliver. That said, I do sometimes cringe with the overly touchy-feely approach they take, especially the founder.

There is no denying that Drew Canole is passionate about health and mental well-being and it’s great to see the owner of the business being out there and connecting with his audience.

The cornerstone of the business is the FitLife blog and Organifi online shop. Looking at the blog, however, there are no more recent articles than 3 months ago. It seems that the focus is more on the video channel.

Background on Organifi Green Juice

Drew Canole Fitlife TVWhat started out as Drew showing how to juice on YouTube has turned into an incredibly successful channel with over 500k subscribers.

What began as being passion about juicing turned into a very profitable supplement company that has become a well-known brand with super green advocates.

Their flagship supplement is the Organifi Green Juice and they have now added Probiotics, Protein mixes, Turmeric, Organifi Gold (purporting to aid sleep) and Organifi Red Juice (reputed to be anti-aging and improves energy).

Organifi are proud supporters of Vitamin Angels, a charity that help children fight the risk of malnutrition. For every Organifi Red Juice sold, Organifi will pledge to help save a child’s life.

The company is very active through email and if you sign up to the newsletter from either the blog or store you receive regular emails about their products and how they claim to help you.

Organifi Green Juice Ingredients

Organifi IngredientsOrganifi Green Juice comes in a 270g bottle that contains 30 servings with each scoop being 9g in size.

The bulk of the Organifi ingredients are two proprietary blends, an alkaline greens blend and a super food blend. These account for 6.55g out of the 9g serving.

The remaining ingredients are for flavouring (organic lemon juice, monk fruit, mint, orange) and dietary fibre.

The use of proprietary blends means we don’t get to know the individual ingredient amounts within each blend. This is frustrating as we’re relying on Organifi to have put in sufficient quantities to be effective – and we know that supplements companies often don’t!

On the plus side all the ingredients are organic and so the supplement is USDA certified.

I outline below the blends and their ingredients:

Alkaline greens proprietary blend (5.1g)

Organic Wheatgrass, Organic Wheatgrass juice powder, Organic Horseradish Tree (leaf) (Moringa Oleifera), Organic Spirulina (whole plant), Organic Chlorella (whole plant) (Chlorella Vulgaris) and Organic Matcha Green Tea (leaf) (Camellia Sinensis).

Super food proprietary blend (1.45g)

Organic Coconut (fruit) water powder, Organic Ashwagandha (root) extract, Organic Red beet (root), Organic Turmeric.

How Does Organifi Green Juice taste?

If you have ever tried a green superfood powder before you already know that most of them taste awful, pretty much like you’re drinking a grassy and chalky water.

This is the challenge with all super greens drink, to make it palatable for consumption every day, without the lingering aftertaste. Feedback from customers tasting Organifi Green Juice has reported the mint taste to be refreshing and not too unpleasant at all.

Side Effects

As with any new supplement, if you’re not familiar with taking a greens powder then there is the chance of mild digestive complaints.

On the whole it seems that Organifi is well tolerated and few consumers highlight any side effects.

Does Organifi Green Juice work?

If you have read any of the other reviews you can probably guess my answer here, right?

But if we assume (and it’s a big IF) that the ingredient amounts aren’t an issue, let’s focus on the benefits of Organifi Green Juice.

Other than the usual green superfoods like Spirulina and Wheatgrass, there are some other good and potentially potent ingredients in Organifi, I especially like Ashwagandha and Chlorella.

Ashwagandha RootOne of my favourite ingredients is Ashwagandha root as this reputedly helps the body to react better to stress and has an anxiety-calming effect. Such adaptogenic ingredients have been shown to be beneficial to immune function too, which is great news for me as for years my immune system has been suppressed.

According to Examine.com you should aim for a daily dose of 300-500mg of Ashwagandha to experience and really enjoy the benefits. Lower amounts may help in some cases though.

In terms of my other favourite Chlorella, this green freshwater algae has an incredibly good nutritional profile being a great source of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, protein and fibre.

There are several types of Chlorella but the most commonly used one in supplements is Chlorella vulgaris. This is the type used in Organifi Green Juice.

It’s important to note that in order for Chlorella to be effective at all the ‘cracked-cell wall’ variety should be considered above other varieties. Organifi don’t indicate what type used!

It’s important to note that in order for Chlorella to be effective at all the ‘cracked-cell wall’ variety should be considered above other varieties. This is because the cell-wall can’t be broken down by digestion and so none of the nutrients would be made available.

Organifi don’t indicate what type of Chlorella they use in their Alkaline blend.

According to the research you should aim for between 2-3g per day of the cracked cell variety to get the most from this ingredient.

I discuss these Super Green ingredients here in much more detail, if you’re interested to know how they are considered to improve health.

Organifi Green Juice Customer Reviews

There are a fair number of reviews on the official website. At the time of writing this review there were around 1,038 reviews with the majority giving a 4 or 5 star rating.

As it’s difficult to know if the Organifi reviews on their website are cherry picked I always like to check out Amazon for potentially less biased feedback.

The higher price of the product on Amazon doesn’t seem to have put customers off as there are a whopping 1692 customers reviews there.

Over 60% of the Amazon customers were happy with the product, rating it 5 stars. As is to be expected, however, not everyone was happy with 12% giving it one out of five.

Here is some of the customer feedback. These are only a select few and I recommend checking out Amazon to read more.

I had an incredible energy boost after taking Organifi for about a week. Tasty and well worth the money. Highly recommended! Chris.

First off this product is incredibly expensive, but worth it. I mix it in water and love the minty taste. About a month ago, I started creating protein smoothies combining this with chocolate or vanilla plant based protein powder. My energy levels are unbelievable. I used to get tired in the afternoon and evening, but not any more. In addition I can tell the difference in how clear my mind is. I highly recommend this product. Schenny.

VERY disappointed with this product. The taste is awful, I could barely choke it down. It tastes like mint flavored swamp water, and unless you really love the taste of vegetables you are not going to like this. The product is also loaded with cheap cereal grass filler ingredients which I did not notice when I bought. I emailed customer support for a refund, and they are giving me the run-around and refusing to refund my money. Andrew.

One negative review is from an upset customer who had a bad reaction after not reading the label prior to using. It really stood out for various reasons.

I purchased this product after listening to several infomercials on it and thought it sounded like something that would be good for me. When the shipping box arrived there was nothing in it but the product itself. Having watched many videos on how to safely use the product, I assumed it was safe to use as are other supplements that come in powder form…. As a result, I not only did not refrigerate the product after opening the container but I did not consume it within 60 days either. As a result, I became violently ill on 2 separate occasions in March 2017 within an hour of consuming the powder. V. L. Simmons

You can buy Organifi Green Juice on Amazon.com.

Money Back Guarantee / Returns Policy

There is a 60 day money-back guarantee for all purchases through the official Organifi website. The conditions involve the company receiving ALL partial or empty bottles back within 60 days of the purchase date in order to qualify for the refund.

The return policy looks solid and as long as you follow the conditions you should be fine to get your money back should you not be satisfied with the product.

Where to Buy Organifi Green Juice?

You can purchase Organifi from a few places. The official website is the obvious choice and stocks the whole Organifi supplement range.

Buying a single bottle of Green Juice will set you back $69.99 (reduced from $79.99) with discounts available for buying more at the same time. You can save $59 when buying 3 bottles and a massive $169 if you buy 6 bottles.

You can also have your bottle automatically delivered every 30 days by choosing the ‘subscribe and save’ option to save 15% on your order – making one bottle $59.46 per month.

Organifi Green Juice is also available through Amazon although it is priced higher at $73 for a single bottle and $69 for the monthly subscribe and save option.

You may also find Organifi available in some high street stores, such as The Vitamin Shoppe.

Is It Worth the Price?

Organifi green powder quantityOrganifi Green Juice is at the higher end for super greens costing between $60 and $80 depending on where and how you purchase it.

Some Amazon customers have commented on the low quantity of the Organifi green powder in the tub – some pictures below.

It is much better value than other greens powders I have reviewed such as Green Detox, Patriot Power Greens and Detox Organics. Having fewer ingredients is fine as long as they are in high quantities.

The Bottom Line

Organifi green drink contains very promising ingredients for an acceptable price that tastes not bad. The problem that I am encountering time and time again is the lack of ingredient transparency – we just don’t know how potent and therefore how effective Organifi could be!

The company has their founder Drew Canole as a passionate force behind Organifi and their supplements. But does Organifi stand out from the super greens crowd?

If you want a superfood top-up and you find some of the ingredients appealing then Organifi could be just the super greens for you.

This is one of the better super greens I have seen but at this price point for the quantity of ingredients I would expect more from my superfood drink!

    Organifi Green Juice is a superfood supplement. Products of this nature come as a powder. The powder is made from ground leaves, roots, and other plant extracts. You mix the powder with water or the beverage of your choice and then consume it as a drink.
