SF Greens, produced by British brand, SF Nutrition, is a plant-based super greens formula that contains a wide range of vegetables, herbal extracts, adaptogens, and fiber.
The formula is supposed to provide a number of impressive benefits, such as boost the immune system, reduce inflammation, and promote better digestion.
SF Greens is suitable for a wide range of people due to the fact that it’s gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, sugar-free, non-GMO, vegan-friendly, kosher-friendly, and halal-friendly.
The SF Nutrition brand is rising to popularity in the UK supplement scene and therefore, I’m definitely keen to take a look at it to see if the Greens formula is actually impressive.
If you’re thinking of purchasing the SF Greens formula, or you also want to take a closer look at the formula, check out my full SF Greens review below.
I tried over 40 brands: check out my round-up of the best super greens!)
SF Greens First Impressions
Looking at the SF Nutrition website, my initial impression of the brand is good! Everything looks sleek, there’s a wide range of informative resources on the website (including recipes and a blog), and the SF Fitness App looks interesting.
Focusing on the SF Greens formula, again, everything looks good!
The branding of the formula is keen (I’d definitely take a look at it if I saw it in a shop), there’s information about the benefits of the formula, and clear “how to use” instructions.
Hopefully, when I take a closer look at the formula, I’ll be impressed by the nutritional value of the formula!

Background on SF Nutrition
SF Nutrition was founded in 2016 by personal trainer and fitness coach, James Stark.
The company is based in the city of Bristol in the UK and stocks their products in their shop, as well as delivers products online worldwide.
Apart from that, there’s not a lot of information about the brand online!
However, what we do know is that the Greens formula is one of the most popular products on the site, alongside the brand’s vegan protein, whey protein, and BCAAs.
SF Greens Benefits
There’s an adequate amount of information about the benefits of the SF Greens formula on the product page on the website.
The formula is supposed to boost the immune system, reduce inflammation, promote better digestion, push toxins from the body, balance pH levels, and support you maintain a healthy lifestyle.
SF Greens Ingredients
The SF Greens formula contains 13 ingredients in total.
Unfortunately, the ingredients label is not fully disclosed, and therefore, it’s unclear how much of each ingredient (apart from the ashwagandha) exists within the formula.
This makes it difficult to work out whether the formula will actually be effective or not.
However, I’ll be taking a look at the efficacy of the formula later in this review!
First, let’s take a look at the ingredients within the formula.
- Ingredients-Greens Blend (Spirulina, Wheatgrass, Barleygrass, Moringa, Chlorella), KSM-66 Ashwagandha Extract, Matcha Powder, Maca Powder, Flaxseed Powder, Natural Flavouring, Sweetener (Steviol Glycosides), Pea Protein, Green Tea Extract.
Here is the supplement facts label:
How does SF Greens Taste?
SF Greens is available in Citrus and Dark Chocolate Flavor – it’s naturally flavored and sweetened with stevia extract.
The reviews about SF Greens concerning the taste of the formula are incredibly positive, with people especially loving the Dark Chocolate flavor!
There are no side effects associated with the SF Greens formula and the brand doesn’t provide any warnings with regards to who shouldn’t consume the formula.
I would recommend that no one who is pregnant, breastfeeding, on medication, or with a medical condition should consume this formula without consulting a doctor first.
Does SF Greens Work?
Unfortunately, the SF Greens ingredients label is not disclosed. In fact, there’s no information about the amounts of any of the ingredients, apart from the ashwagandha, within the formula. There are not even any proprietary blends with amounts!
Therefore, all we have to go off is the amount of ashwagandha in the formula and the serving size – 5g.
We can make an estimated guess as to whether the ingredients within the formula are fully disclosed or not by comparing the recommended doses of ingredients within the formula’s serving size.
So, let’s do that!
First, let’s see if the ashwagandha in the formula is sufficiently dosed.
The recommended dose of ashwagandha sits between 500–600 mg and since there’s 500mg of ashwagandha in the formula, this ingredient is sufficiently dosed!
Taking away the 500mg of ashwagandha, there’s 4.5g leftover for the other ingredients.
However, since the combined recommended dose of spirulina, wheatgrass, chlorella, and maca powder, and green tea extract works out at 7.75g, all of the ingredients within the formula cannot be sufficiently dosed.
Therefore, all of the benefits associated with the formula may not actually occur since not all of the ingredients are sufficiently dosed.
Overall, it’s clear that a number of the ingredients within this formula cannot be sufficiently dosed due to the small serving size.
However, the ashwagandha is sufficiently dosed and therefore the consumer may experience the benefits associated with this ingredient.

Where to buy SF Greens?
Is It Worth The Price?
One tub of SF Greens contains 50 servings of formula and you can either purchase the formula on a one-time purchase or on a subscription option.
One tub of SF Greens on a one-time purchase costs $29.00, meaning the cost per serving works out at $0.58.
One tub of SF Greens on a subscription option costs $23.20, meaning the cost per serving works out at $0.46.
Clearly, the formula is incredibly cheap.
However, since the formula has a small serving size and there’s no information about the amounts of the ingredients within the formula, it can’t be confirmed that the formula will provide benefits to the consumer.
Overall, SF Greens could be a great formula for people on a tight budget, but it isn’t a potent blend and may not provide benefits.
So, if you have a slightly bigger budget, I’d look at a different formula.
My Final Verdict
Although I like the look of the SF Nutrition brand, I’m not crazy about the SF Greens formula.
This is due to the fact that the formula doesn’t have a fully disclosed ingredients label and has such a small serving size, meaning it’s guaranteed that not all of the ingredients can be sufficiently dosed.
However, since the formula is very cheap, it may be a good choice for those on a very tight budget, as I said above.
However, I wouldn’t recommend it if you have a slightly larger budget.
If you are looking for a formula that will definitely contain sufficiently dosed ingredients and therefore provide the benefits associated with the formula, I would suggest you look elsewhere.
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.
In conjunction with some of the worlds leading nutrition experts, I developed a greens supplement that actually does what it promises to do. Full transparency, No hidden ingredients and certainly no BS.
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
- Ingredient amounts that make a difference - we include the minimum effective amounts supported by research, and most of the time, MORE
- Ingredients that also boost mental clarity and shake off brain fog - making for a much more productive and happy lifestyle
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 AS UNBIASED AS POSSIBLE )
