Wild Super Greens Powder, produced by the popular natural supplement company Wild Foods Co, is a superfood powder that specifically focuses on supporting the immune system and the digestive system.
The formula contains over 40 ingredients, from grasses and fruits to digestive enzymes and herbal extracts, with the brand’s aim being to supply healthy, nutritious, natural products.
The formula is non-GMO, gluten-free, soy-free, dairy-free, grain-free, and suitable for vegans and those on paleo diets. Wild Foods Co claims that its products are organic, but they’re all lacking a USDA organic certification.

Wild Super Greens Powder First Impressions
I really love the Wild Foods Co website, and that’s rare for me to say! I think the branding and design is spot on for what the company is trying to convey, I really appreciate that the brand has its own blog, podcast, and Youtube, and I’m a fan of how the products are simply and clearly laid out.
Looking at the Wild Super Greens Powder, I’m still impressed! I’m especially fond of the tub design, which really draws the consumer in, and I like the concise explanation of the product.
The only thing I would like to see would be more information about the ingredients within the formula and the benefits of the formula. However, apart from that, I’m pretty impressed by Wild Foods Co and Wild Super Greens Powder so far. Hopefully, I’ll continue to be impressed when I start looking more closely at the formula!

Background on Wild Foods Co
Wild Foods Co was first started at the beginning of 2015, with CEO Colin Stuckert selling products through Amazon. By the end of 2015, Stuckert had made $500,000 in sales, which is quite a feat for a small Texas-based company!
Since then, the business has only grown exponentially. Currently, the brand sells a vast number of products from multivitamins and fish oil to bone broth and protein and has a popular brand following.
It’s refreshing to see an entrepreneur hit gold and grow a business right from the bottom up.
Wild Super Greens Benefits
Wild Super Greens Powder is formulated specifically to focus on boosting the immune system and supporting the digestive system. The formula is packed with antioxidant-rich foods to reduce the likelihood of radical damage, and it also contains digestive enzymes, probiotics, and prebiotics to support gut health and improve nutrient absorption.
Seeing as the formula contains such a large number of ingredients, it seems a shame that the brand hasn’t provided more information about other potential health benefits, or linked specific ingredients with specific health benefits.
Wild Super Greens Ingredients
Wild Super Greens Powder contains over 40 ingredients, including greens, grasses, algae, fruit, digestive enzymes, probiotics, and prebiotics. Although some of the amounts of the ingredients are shown, most of the ingredients exist in proprietary blends, which makes the efficacy of the formula difficult to determine.
However, I’ll be taking a closer look at the efficacy of the formula later in this review. First, let’s take a look at the ingredients within it!
- Spinach Leaf (1000mg)
- Alfalfa Leaf (400mg)
- Vegetable Blend (650mg) – Carrot, Tomato, Beetroot, Kale.
- Superfruit Blend (315mg) – Banana, Blueberry, Acai Berry, Strawberry, Raspberry, Tart Cherry, Elderberry, Cranberry.
- Alkalizing Blend (150mg) – Alfalfa, Wheatgrass, Barley Grass, Oat Grass, Broccoli, Cabbage, Parsley, Kale, Spirulina, Chlorella (cracked cell), Sea Kelp, Dulse, Dandelion, Broccoli Sprouted Seeds
- Sprouted Seed Blend (50mg) – Millet Sprouted Seed, Broccoli Sprouted Seed.
- Spirulina (whole algae) – 100mg
- Probiotic/Prebiotic Blend (2500mg) – Bacillus Coagulans (1 Billion CFU), Apple Fiber, Agave Inulin, Gum Acacia, Xanthan Gum.
- Digestive Enzyme Blend (25mg) – Amylase, Protease, Glucoamylase, Lipase, Cellulase, Bromelain.
- Ginger Root (100mg)
- Cinnamon Bark (25mg)
- Other Ingredients – Xylitol, Stevia Leaf Extract, Citric Acid, Malic Acid, Beta Carotene.
Here is the supplement facts label:
How does Wild Super Greens Taste?
Wild Super Greens Powder isn’t a specific flavoring, but the formula does contain sweeteners – xylitol, stevia extract, citric acid, malic acid. It’s slightly concerning that the brand has chosen to use xylitol and malic acid, as neither is deemed healthy.
Consumer reviews about the taste of the formula aren’t very positive, with people claiming that the formula is grassy and pungent.
There aren’t any side effect warnings on the product, but Wild Foods Co does give the advice that those who are under 18, pregnant, breastfeeding, or taking medication should consult a doctor before consumption, which is always my advice, so this is great.
Does Wild Super Greens Work?
Trying to figure out the efficacy of Wild Super Greens Powder is difficult because although the ingredients label does show the number of specific ingredients, most of the ingredients exist within proprietary blends. Proprietary blends include multiple ingredients, yet the amount shown is the amount of the entire blend, so it’s impossible to know how much of each ingredient actually exists within the formula.
Although this is a huge problem, we can take an estimated guess as to whether the formula contains sufficiently dosed ingredients and will work, or whether it’s going to be ineffective.
Immediately, it’s clear to me that the formula will contain insufficiently dosed ingredients because the amount of each ingredient within the formula is tiny – a blend containing 14 ingredients only weighs 150mg (0.15g).
In this 150mg blend (the Alkalizing Blend), there are three ingredients with standard recommended doses. These ingredients are wheatgrass, spirulina, and chlorella, which have a combined recommended dose of 6g.
Therefore, quite obviously this blend is underdosed! It’s also not just a little bit underdosed, but significantly!
The brand has also separately added spirulina, in 100mg, which again, is significantly underdosed by 900mg!
So, overall, it’s very unlikely that this formula contains sufficiently dosed ingredients, and therefore it might not provide the benefits that the brand claims it will.
Wild Super Greens Powder Reviews
Wild Super Greens Powder is available on Amazon and there are over 250 reviews of the product on there. The formula scores a rating of 4.6 out of 5 stars overall, with 78% of the reviews being 5-star reviews.
Let’s take a look at a selection of these reviews. So, let’s get to it and take a look at a selection of the Metabolic Greens Plus reviews on Amazon.
I use this product to pack in more nutrients in my day and feel energized! I have a lot of digestive issues and this seems to help give me more support. I appreciate that this product goes down easier than other super greens powders I’ve tried. The flavor is more palatable, including a gentle sweetness from the fruit ingredients. It’s super easy to toss a small scoop in, stir with a spoon, and go! I will also add it to my smoothies for a hidden green boost. I love this company’s products for being free from harmful ingredients and instead being great quality. Highly recommend!5-star reviewer
I ordered the sample, and was surprised to get a full-size product instead! Plus a coupon and tiny sample from the company. So great customer service. Sadly, the product didn’t quite live up to the service. Clumpy when dissolved in water or juice, even after stirring it for ages. It isn’t sweetened or flavored, which I appreciate, but that means it takes pretty foul, especially when you get a large chunk of it that didn’t dissolve. So, mixed reviews.
The texture has a gel-like mouthfeel. I thought maybe they used xanthan or something to thicken. BUT WORSE THAN THAT… the cinnamon flavor is super pronounced. Skip this unless you want to sip on a blended Christmas tree, lol! If you like somewhat tart flavor try KOS “The Greens.” Best one I’ve tried– EVER.1-star reviewer
Money-Back Guarantee / Returns Policy
Wild Food Co doesn’t offer a money-back guarantee, but it does say that it has a ‘60 DAY WILD SATISFACTION GUARANTEE’. However, looking more closely into this, if you want to return a product, you can do so within 60 days, but the product has to be in an unused condition and you have to contact the brand to apply for a refund before returning any product.
Where to buy?
Is It Worth The Price?
Wild Super Greens Powder is sold in tubs that contain ‘about’ 30 servings of formula. The brand doesn’t offer a discounted subscription option, but the more tubs you buy, the cheaper the cost per tub!
The cost of one tub is $29.99, meaning the cost per serving works out at $1.00. There are small discounts for buying more than one tub at a time.
Regardless of whether you choose to purchase a bulk option with a discount, or you buy the formula on a one time purchase, this formula is undoubtedly cheap in comparison to others on the market.
However, seeing as the formula contains proprietary blends and insufficiently dosed ingredients, I’m not surprised that this formula is so inexpensive.
The Bottom Line
Initially, I felt really impressed by this brand and this formula, but unfortunately, I feel let down by the amounts of ingredients within the formula, or rather lack thereof.
The fact that the recommended daily serving is so small (6.2g) and the formula is made up of insufficiently dosed ingredients leads me to wonder whether the formula will actually provide any real health benefits at all.
I will say that the price of the formula, the brand’s ethos, and the reviews of the formula are all positive. However, I simply cannot get past the insufficiently dosed proprietary blends in the formula, because I’d never buy a formula that might not actually work.
I would recommend looking elsewhere for a super greens formula, and choosing one that has a fully disclosed ingredients list!
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 )
