Total Living Drink Greens Review – Is It Worth The Price?

Kylea Health - Total Living Greens Drink

Whether looking for an energy boost or to achieve your day’s worth of full nutrient needs, taking super greens can be the best and quickest way to ‘insure’ your body against poor health and undernourishment.

As I have already discovered there is a huge choice of powdered green supplements, and my research has led me to sample and investigate a number of blends.

Kylea Total Living Greens Drink is a blend that claims a ‘nine-products-in-one whole-food super-food formula’. The blend also claims to contain the nutritional equivalent of 7-10 servings of raw fruit and vegetables. Alongside these two heavy claims, they have also included a good portion of protein (11-12g per serving), which is great if you are looking to up your protein intake.

This seems to be a good product, so I wanted to delve a little deeper.

Total Living Drink Greens First Impressions

The packaging for Total Living Drink Greens looks striking, with its green logo on a black background it is certainly eye-catching. There is a huge amount of information on the pack and the website also seems to be really heavy on the information.

However (and this is something I always look for in a product), I immediately ask myself whether the company is transparent about the blend or whether they are using a proprietary blend.

Looking at the ingredients list I was a little disappointed. The suggested serving size is quite large (at 40g, about 5-10g bigger than competitors suggest) and about 11-12g of this is taken up with protein.

I was also disappointed to see that within the sub-blends, Kylea has not been very transparent with the exact amounts of each ingredient included.

Background on Kylea Health

When considering drinking super greens mixes for health there are a few different angles people usually look for: general health support, specific nutritional needs (such as more energy, higher servings of certain nutrients, brain or immuno-support, etc).

Kylea Health is about helping people ‘feel better’.

This is a general health claim and not one which I can really see much support for.

The website has a bold testimonials section in their About Us area (including a personal endorsement by Jerry Rose, President of the Total Living Network), however I honestly found it hard to find out anything other than generic health and wellbeing information.

I’d have really liked to see a much more honest background story with some personal history in order to feel more in touch with the Kylea brand.

The company also offers a few other complementary supplements that can help support immunity (max immunity), colon health (Colon & Intestinal cleanse), and a red berry version called Total Living Drink Berry.

Total Living Drink Greens Ingredients

The claims of the nutrient-dense blend which initially caught my eye needs further unpacking. There are a few suggestions that the formula has been changed, and I’m not sure how this new formula differs from the old.

I can only assume that the formula has been improved, but how – not sure.

Total Living Greens Drink supplement facts label

I’m also not sure it’s possible to find out exactly what goes into the greens blend, as the only ingredients listed in their ‘natural vegetable and fruit formula’ are as follows:

Alfalfa juice powder, Spirulina, Fenugreek, Barley juice powder, Broccoli juice powder,
Lecithin, Chlorella, Brown rice bran, Wheatgrass juice powder, Apple juice powder, Bitter melon, Pineapple, Dulse, Luo Han Guo fruit concentrate.

This amounts to 15,330mg – a significant part of the serving size!

But they don’t disclose the precise amounts of each ingredient.

So if you are expecting to achieve your daily intake of, say, Chlorella, how are you to know that this includes enough? Also, if the serving size is 40g, this seems a very low amount of these key ingredients to be included in a Green blend.

I wonder why it is that they haven’t wanted to be so transparent about the formulation of their fruit and vegetables blend.

Kylea is more transparent about their ‘all-natural herbal formula’ within the Kylea Greens blend which includes amounts per ingredient, so I wonder why it is that they haven’t wanted to be so transparent about the formulation of their fruit and vegetable blend.

How Does Total Living Drink Greens Taste?

The reviews on the amazon pages are a little more insightful than some brands when it comes to taste.

This not only has the better nutrition of the ones I’ve tried, but it also tastes much better. It definitely has a more pronounced fruity flavor. Fairly good energy and overall well being.

This green drink tastes really good and I have noticed a difference in the way I feel. It made my hair grow faster too!

As with most people taking Super Greens Drink powders, there is always personal taste to take into account, but I would say that on balance people seem to like the taste of the Kylea Total Living Drink Greens formula.

Side Effects

It’s a bit less clear whether there would – or could – be any side effects to taking this particular blend. Total Living Drink Greens is quite high in both protein (11-12g per serving) of mostly pea protein, which could cause digestive issues if you are prone to trouble in this area after taking protein drinks.

There is also a probiotic blend, which may or may not assist, again depending on whether your system is used to taking such a product.

Does Total Living Drink Greens Work?

Kylea greens powder scoopAs I’ve already mentioned there is quite a lot going on with the blend in Total Living Drink Greens.

The blend is proprietary, so it’s hard to say what the overall effect could be.

This is one of the biggest downsides to this premium greens product in that with the big-serving size (one of the biggest I have seen in the greens space), it’s likely there are enough of some or a lot of the individual ingredients.

The proprietary formula there is a slight bit of doubt though.

There is a but though. I still believe the formula will be beneficial, especially if your diet is consistently poor and you’re not getting the daily nutrients required. Then taking greens to drink like this one from Kylea Health could help be your nutritional insurance.

Total Living Drink Greens Customer Reviews

There are plenty of reviews on the Kylea site which seem to give a really balanced view.

A few customers seem to be a bit disappointed with increased prices, but nevertheless, customers are loyal and have been returning their custom.

I’ve been a long time fan of Kylea. For years I purchased several containers at once and had all my family taking it. Everyone keeps asking for it, but we had to consider other options because of the increase in price. We will probably come back.
I highly recommend it for so many good reasons, one it helps you grow beautiful hair and the best part is that even the color comes back. I can go on and on…Good product.

Some customers also report improvements in specific health concerns, such as joint pain:

I wrote a couple of weeks ago and just ordered the second packet. I feel general overall health with lots of energy. I also think this drink has helped with some stiffness and joint soreness. I stopped taking Advil at night. So far I give this an A+.

Some of the reviews on Amazon are a little more negative about the price point, but I suppose it is up to the purchaser to take a balanced view as to whether they are getting their money’s worth due to health effects or other perceived benefits from the product.

Money Back Guarantee / Returns Policy

There is a returns policy that states customers can receive a refund on a product (one-time purchase only, and only on one product) if returned within 30 days. This seems fair and it looks as though some reviewers have been happy with the service.

Where to Buy Total Living Drink Greens?

You can buy Total Living Drink Greens online at the official website and on Amazon.com.

Is It Worth the Price?

A one-time purchase of the Total Living Drink Greens is $99 (US). There is a ‘subscribe and save’ price of $84.55, a 15% discount, where you can choose to have your next order delivered after 30,45, 60, or 90 days.

Paying almost $100 per monthly supply seems a lot of money, but they do include a lot of ingredients for your buck.

Initially paying almost $100 per monthly supply seems a lot of money, but they do include a lot of ingredients for your buck. The problem is it’s not clear exactly how much you’re really getting of each ingredient. This brings into question how much value you’re really getting from Total Living Drink Greens.

As with all my reviews, it’s hard to say but with this one, I think probably not.

Kylea is a brand that claims to include a lot in its blend. So there are many ingredients. But what if you’re the sort of person who needs to know exactly what they are consuming?

Kylea Greens FAQs

Here are some of the frequently asked questions.

Is Total Living Drink Greens gluten free

Actually, my answer is, not sure. I have researched the website, ingredient label, and other reviews and no one mentions if Kylea’s superfood supplement is gluten-free.

Is Kylea Greens Keto friendly?

The carbohydrate content of Kylea greens formula is a little on the high side at 10 grams per serving. Staying in a stick keto diet means less than 20 grams per day and so if you take this product you won’t be able to consume much more in terms of carbs. So, this isn’t the most keto-friendly of greens powders.

Any Total Living Drink Greens coupons?

Everyone likes to get a discount but at the time of writing this review, I could not find any Kylea coupons.

The Bottom Line

As I am discovering there is a huge amount of choice in the market.

Super Greens are almost as varied in their blends and formulations as any other kind of pre-made powdered nutrient drink (protein drinks etc), however, it is really important to know what goes into something that you are drinking every day.

Why would you spend money on something that claims so much but really isn’t particularly transparent about what goes into it?

Competition is tough in the super greens supplement space, and to really stand out you need a product that stands out. I think Kylea Health have done a great job in providing a different formula from most and including a good protein portion. However, the very high price point and the fact there is no full disclosure labeling it doesn’t quite make the cut for me.

I think I’ll save my money for a product where I can really trust their claims.

  1. Hi Adam…..Normally, I would count this review of Kylea and the further promotion of your product as a Self-Advertisement. But, I would tend to agree that Kylea over-hypes itself quite a bit with big claims about their product and not enough proof, although that also tends to be the case with most other Green Drink products. Especially, Athletic Greens, HOLY CRAP, I’ve never seen so many BULLSHIT Endorsements, such as all of YouTube’s “Big Name” Reviewers reviewing another product and then claiming that Athletic Greens is Better. And, then, as a bonus for watching their review, out of the “Goodness” of their hearts, they offer you a special code with a 10% Discount Off Your First Purchase of Athletic Greens. Of course, most viewers don’t know that the reviewer offering this discount is getting paid for promoting Athletic Greens. I used to love YouTube for it’s honest reviews, but now I just can’t trust the reviews anymore.

    In any case, Adam, I think you’ve done a very thorough job of researching & honestly reviewing Kylea, and I want to thank you for providing your review, because after my UNBELIEVABLE debacle with trying to purchase THE ULTIMATE MEAL from Samuel Gerard, Founder & CEO of THE ULTIMATE LIFE, and all the frustration I’ve been going thru for the last few months trying to decide which are The Best Green Drink Products, I think perhaps I will take a relaxing break from tediously researching ALL the green drinks on the Market, and I think I’ll give SuperGreen TONIK a try. Not because I think you’re an honest reviewer or the preeminent EXPERT on Nutritional Products, but more so because of the intensively healthy way that you’ve lived your life, from youth to adulthood & from your education in Nutrition to Entrepreneur creating SuperGreen TONIK, which you claim to be The Most Complete Green Drink ever created. Well, I certainly HOPE so. No disrespect to you, Adam, but I’ve seen a lot of reviewers make elaborate claims about every Green Drink on the market, and all my exhaustive research for The Most Complete Green Drink has left me feeling tired, frustrated & confused.

    With that said, I’m going try SuperGreen TONIK. 1) Because I’m very tired of searching fruitlessly for what I’ve found that, up til now, did not exist. 2) I very much want to be ASTOUNDED & AMAZED, having finally found a product that I can believe in, and one that will be the quintessential start of a fruitful & lasting relationship between Myself & SuperGreen TONIK that will last for the Rest Of My Life.

    I’m Taking A Leap of Faith in You, Adam. Don’t let me down, Brother.

    CHEERS!!!!

    1. Thanks Dan, this is one of the best comments I have read for a long time, so thank you I appreciate the time you took to add your thoughts here.
      What I have found since starting my brand is the incredibly fine line with regards to promotions, remaining authentic, whilst not pushing it down people’s throats. I researched many products before starting my own and was surprised by the amount of rubbish out there, not to mention the amount of hyperbole.
      That said, there are some amazing products out there that don’t have the limelight shone on them, yet!
      I appreciate your leap of faith and look forward to your feedback.
      Adam
