SynergyGreens is a superfood formula containing probiotics, medicinal mushrooms, herbal extracts and fruit, produced by the brand, Stop Aging Now.
The formula is targeted towards those that want to improve their vitality as they age, with the brand claiming that the powder will help to support the immune system, promote healthy digestion, keep free radicals at bay, and more.
The formula is made in a GMP facility, a large number of the ingredients are organic, and it’s also suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Although SynergyGreens is actually a relatively new product from the brand, Stop Aging Now has been around for nearly three decades, so I’m really keen to take a closer look and see if the formula really is as good as the brand makes it out to be!

SynergyGreens Powder First Impressions
Looking at the Stop Aging Now website, I can’t say I’m blown away.
Personally, I feel as if the site has a dated aesthetic and the products seem to be sold in an almost pushy way – having prices and “buy now” buttons as soon as you head onto the website is a little intense!
Looking at the SynergyGreens Powder, I feel the same – everything looks dated! For example, although there’s actually a wide range of informative content about the formula, it’s all just overwhelmingly compacted into a text box below the product.
I’m really hoping that the product is going to become more impressive as I look more deeply into it, because right now, I’m not super impressed.

Background on Stop Aging Now
Stop Aging Now was founded in 1995 by medical journalist and author, Jean Carper. Four of Carper’s books have been on the New York Times Bestseller list, and her book ‘Stop Aging Now’ grew to be particularly popular, leading to the brand being founded.
The brand specialises in helping consumers understand the nutritional elements behind good health, and produces a wide range of supplements to improve vitality and support overall health and wellbeing.
SynergyGreens Powder Benefits
Stop Aging Now claims that the SynergyGreens formula will provide antioxidant defence, boost the immune system, support the digestive system, balance pH levels, boost energy levels, support cardio health, and promote good kidney and liver health.
The brand provides information about each ingredient within the formula and the benefits associated with them. For example, “The medicinal mushrooms shiitake, Cordyceps sinensis, reishi and maitake contain a type of polysaccharide called beta-glucan that provides powerful support for the immune system”.
SynergyGreens Powder Ingredients
The SynergyGreens formula contains 40 individual ingredients, without taking flavoring ingredients into account.
Although some of the ingredients are fully disclosed, meaning it’s possible to see the amount of each ingredient, the majority of the ingredients exist within proprietary blends.
This makes it impossible to work out the efficacy of the formula and also means the consumer doesn’t know how much of each ingredient they’re consuming.
However, we’ll take a look at the efficacy of the formula in much closer detail later in this review.
First, let’s take a look at the ingredients list.
- Organic Vegetable Blend (3120mg) – Carrot, Spinach, Broccoli, Kale, Beet Root, Tomato, Parsley.
- Organic Green Food Blend (2460mg) – Barley Grass, Spirulina, Chlorella, Chlorophyll.
- Organic Fruit Blend (1400mg) – Apple, Acerola, Raspberry, Strawberry, Cranberry, Blueberry, Pomegranate.
- Probiotic Blend (800mg) – Lactobacillus Casei, Bifidobacterium Bifidum, Lactobacillus Acidophilus.
- Lecithin (From Sunflower) – 500mg
- Enzyme Blend (200mg) – Glucoamylase, Bromelain, Cellulase, Amylase, Protease, Papain.
- Amla Extract (Fruit) – 125mg
- Mushroom Blend (100mg) – Shiitake, Cordyceps Sinensis, Reishi, Maitake.
- Papaya Leaf Powder – 75mg
- Organic Milk Thistle – 50mg
- Organic Turmeric – 20mg
- Organic Green Tea – 50mg
- Organic Grape Seed Extract 5:1 – 10mg
- Organic Cinnamon – 10mg
- Pine Bark – 10mg
- Other Ingredients (Original Version) – Maltodextrin, Natural Lemon Flavor, Citric Acid, Stevia.
Here is the supplement facts label:
How does SynergyGreens Powder Taste?
SynergyGreens has a lemon hint due to the fact that the formula is flavored with natural lemon flavor.
The formula is sweetened using stevia (which is natural and healthy) and maltodextrin which is an artificial sweetener that has an incredibly high glycemic index.
Overall, the taste of the formula is debated, with some enjoying the sweetness and others disgusted by the use of maltodextrin and the taste that it creates.
Stop Aging Now warns that the formula is only suitable for adults and should be kept away from children. In addition, the brand suggests that those who are on medication, pregnant or nursing a baby, should consult a health care practitioner prior to taking it.
I would add that those with a medical condition shouldn’t consume the formula before consulting with a doctor.
Does SynergyGreens Powder Work?
As mentioned briefly above, the ingredients within the SynergyGreens formula are split into proprietary blends or fully disclosed.
When it comes to the ingredients that have fully disclosed amounts, it’s easy to work out the efficacy of these ingredients by comparing their amounts to standard recommended doses.
However, with the ingredients in the proprietary blends, it’s impossible to work out their efficacy due to the fact that the amount of each ingredient isn’t shown.
Although, we can take an estimated guess comparing the blend amount to the standard recommended doses of the ingredients within the blend.
First, let’s take a look at the fully disclosed ingredients – only a few of the ingredients that are fully disclosed have standard recommended doses, but nonetheless, let’s take a look at them.
Papaya Powder has a recommended dose of between 25mg-100mg, and with 75mg featuring in this formula, that hits the recommended dose which is great.
Turmeric has a recommended dose of between 500 – 2,000mg, and with only 20mg of turmeric featuring in the formula, it’s substantially underdosed.
Grape seed extract is the same – it has a recommended dose of 100-300mg and the amount within this formula only amounts to 10mg. Therefore, it’s again, substantially underdosed.
Looking at the proprietary blends in the formula, the Organic Green Food blend contains ingredients that have standard recommended doses, and unfortunately, the blend isn’t big enough to hold sufficiently dosed amounts of each ingredient.
For example, the recommended dose of just two ingredients (spirulina and chlorella) amounts to 3g, and the blend only amounts to 2,450mg.
Overall, although a small number of ingredients within the formula may be sufficiently dosed, the majority of the ingredients within the formula are not sufficiently dosed. Therefore, the formula may not provide the benefits that the brand claims it will.
SynergyGreens Powder Reviews
I typically look on Amazon for unbiased customer reviews, but SynergyGreens isn’t available on Amazon. Although, there are unbiased customer reviews on the Stop Aging Now website.
In fact, the product only scores 3 stars out of 5 stars on there.
So, we can take a look on there at a selection of customer reviews!
I have tried other organic powders but this one gives great energy. I feel do much better when i take this. Use a Ninja and it gets blended very well. No grit. I put a scoop of organic cacao & an ice cube in it. Very good product!! 5-star reviewer
I was quite surprised at how pleasant SynergyGreens tastes. Most green drinks taste nasty but not this one. 4-star reviewer
I have been using stop aging now products for about a few weeks. I decided to try the synergygreen but realized it has maltodextrin as sweetener. I believe that for a healthy product like synergygreen should not have a simple sugar high on the glycemic index meaning that it can cause a spike in your blood sugar. 1-star reviewer

Where to buy SynergyGreens Powder?
You can buy the formula from the Stop Aging Now website.
Is It Worth The Price?
One tub of SynergyGreens contains 30 servings of formula, and you can either buy 1 tub on a one-time purchase, or 3 or 6 tubs on a one-time purchase or on a subscription.
The more you buy, the more you save, and if you sign up for a subscription you save 15% and receive free shipping.
So, let’s take a look at a selection of the prices offered.
One tub of SynergyGreens (only available on a one-time purchase) costs $54.99, meaning the cost per serving works out at $1.83.
Three tubs of SynergyGreens on a one-time purchase costs $51.99 per tub, meaning the cost per serving works out at $1.73.
Three tubs of SynergyGreens on a subscription costs $44.19 per tub, meaning the cost per serving works out at $1.47.
The cheapest option is the six tub purchase on a subscription that works out at a cost per serving of $1.33.
Due to the fact that a high percentage of the ingredients within the formula exist in proprietary blends and the majority of the ingredients in the formula are likely underdosed, I wouldn’t say that the formula was worth this price, regardless of which option you choose.
My Final Verdict
Overall, to be completely honest, I feel quite let down by the formula. For a brand that’s been around for nearly three decades, I expected more.
The lack of positive customer reviews, the overpriced formula, and the existence of maltodextrin within the formula are all concerning.
However, what concerns me the most about this formula is the fact that the majority of the ingredients within the formula are insufficiently dosed. Therefore, the formula may not actually provide the benefits that the brand claims it will.
I would suggest that you look elsewhere and take a look at superfood powders that actually do contain sufficiently dosed ingredients and show these on a fully disclosed ingredients label!
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 )
