Per 14.8g serving of greens+ extra energy

Lecithin (97% oil free; soybean; 26% phosphatidylcholine;)
In the brain, phosphatidylcholine is changed into actylcholine a compound essential for the transmission of messages from one nerve ending to another. In the intestinal tract, lecithin helps with the absorption of vitamins A and D, and other fat-soluble nutrients. In the bloodstream, lecithin may help prevent cholesterol and other fat from accumulating on the walls of the arteries.

It is a potent source of beta-carotene, with ten times the concentration found in carrots. It contains many enzymes - catalysts for chemical changes in the body. It is also a terrific source of essential fatty acids.
Malus domestica: Apple fruit

Big change

Big change in how I feel on this product.

Love this March 6, 2016


I've only been using this product for a week, but so far I'm in love. I make a smoothie every morning with this and I've never had a better tasting smoothie in my life. Ever. I mix a scoop of this with raw fermented cacao powder, raw honey, 4 soaked dates, chia seeds, a small handful of oats, almond milk and a few ice cubes. It's like drinking the richest, most delicious chocolate milk shake for breakfast. Makes me so happy. I even added home made coconut whipped cream to a cup of it the other morning. Mind blowing. So good. I recomend to anyone who wants a guilt free chocolate start to the day to have this with cacao powder. Wow.

Nikki February 27, 2016


I couldn't believe how i felt on my first day of using this product. I was at work that day and I got so much done it was crazy. I had all this energy and got way ahead. Because I had all this extra energy, I was in such a great mood too. I have the cappuccino flavour and I like it. I add it to my favourite smoothies especially chocolate ones, and I have also made some chocolate chia pudding and added it in for a yummy mocha flavour. Like any greens product it takes a bit to get used to the taste, but the benefits are definitely worth it.

Elisa February 13, 2016

Huge difference

I have found a huge difference in energy, almost immediately. It is fantastic for the afternoon crash that I usually experience. I love the taste of it as well. I plan to keep using it. I’m not a coffee drinker so it’s a good energy boost

Alyson February 2, 2016

Daily Afternoon Dose

I use Greens+ everyday around 3pm when I hit the wall. It totally helps get me through the rest of the day and makes me feel good, versus having a coffee. Also, when I go to the gym after work I have lots of energy to help get through my workout. My day just isn’t the same without my daily afternoon dose of Greens+ Extra Energy

Silvy February 2, 2016

Also, cannot go without

I have a scoop of Greens+ Cap every morning in my smoothie. I cannot have a smoothie without it & if I do, I am not happy, so, I keep stocked. I love the taste of it, I have using this for years & maybe coincidence, but no cold, flu, nothing at all, even when all around me are sick & no flu shot here..

Kitchener Lover July 18, 2013

Amazing, tastes gross at first though

I've been using this product for almost 3 years and it is AMAZING. I drink it with just water or OJ now, but I used to mix it into my morning smoothie to help mask the flavour.

For those who find you get digestional problems, try weaning yourself on to it. I stopped taking it for a few months and tried to return to regular dosage. I had gas, bloating, etc.... :S The third of a scoop seemed to be fine though.

I tell all my friends about it, because it gives me SO much energy and just makes me feel healthier all around. Definitely worth struggling through the taste!

M June 6, 2013

Glad I tried it!

I've been addicted to pop with caffeine for years about 12 pack a day, then I was diagnosed with adrenal issues and they were only working at half, so was forced to change my life and give up pop. I saw a tub of this on sale, with orange flavor. Glad I tried it!!!. Took me about a week to get used to, the taste and graininess of it. I followed their instructions on starting with 1/3 scoop and slowly working up to a full scoop, which was very helpful for me by the way. Now I really look forward to my drink of this a day, and I can taste the orange now. It makes me feel good, which is something I was missing with pop. Pop kept me in a vicious cycle of perk me up then crash then would need more pop and the cycle would continue.

I'm going to try more of their products now! I run everything by my Naturopath first. Even she is a fan of this Brand! :)

ALEeUs November 14, 2012

Excellent Product

I love having my Greens+ Extra Energy every afternoon when my energy starts to lag. I mix it into half water half pure juice (I find it way tastier that way...) and it gives me that boost and positive attitude to get me through the rest of the day. I carry a serving of it at all times so I can mix it up anywhere. As an holistic nutritionist I also recommend this and other Genuine Health products to everyone. Awesome product!

Lindsay October 25, 2012

Love how I feel, so energetic

I was diagnosed with MS over 23 years ago, sure I may limp a bit if tired, but Greens+ extra energy has done me a world of good!!! I have been off my medicine for over 8 years, and really living life to the fullest naturally just as our maker intended!!

"Genuine Health" really puts your health back in the drivers seat!

Mona June 11, 2012

A great product for working nights

I have been working nights for a few years now, and, though I do not drink this every night I do notice when I do drink it. Getting through the night is usually tough. When my co-workers are looking exhausted...I am bouncing around getting things done. The taste is quite nice compared to what I thought before trying it. I mix it with a little crystal light (any flavor).

J-rock March 22, 2012


My husband and I have been taking this product for many years and love it. Maybe it's our age (we're in our 40's) but we get sick significantly less and we both work with the public/kids every day. I also hardly ever feel tired (and I only drink one cup of tea a day along with this). It does take a while to get use to, but for me, this is the equivalent of some people's need for a cup of coffee every morning. It's the first thing I drink and I truly miss it if I skip a day. We prefer the orange flavour (he mixes his with a common brand of Orange-Strawberry-Banana pure juice) but I just use water. I've tried the Cappucino one with half boiling water and half soy/almond milk and it's quite good as a hot drink on a cold winter morning.

DMF January 11, 2012

Great Results!

Most days, I'm up at 5AM and don't stop until late evening…I teach Jock Yoga to inspire others to improve their health, fitness, and wellness . As a vigorous yoga teacher, I always have to be "on", and not only teach, but in a way, to perform. I have to take good care to fuel myself with the right foods and supplements. Since taking greens+ extra energy (and greens+ daily detox), proteins+ and o3mega+ joy, I can honestly say I feel better- my energy is better, my mental clarity is better - as is my daily mood! Many of my yoga students are now taking greens+ too - with fantastic results. Thank you Genuine Health!

greens+ extra energy Beginners!

greens+ extra energy
I started taking this product two and half month ago. It was an attempt to whine myself off of iron pills and seek a plant base option. At first the taste was ghastly (even with the orange enhance flavor and the minimum scoop recommendation) but I stuck with it. After two weeks I notice a difference in the way I felt. After a month and half I got use to the taste (hehe, its intense). Now I hardly notice it. This is the first thing I put into my body to start my day without it I would be where I started, exhausted hopped up on iron pills looking for more energy. Its pricy but soo worth it. A container for starters will last well over 4-5 months. Maybe a little less when taking the full scoop as recommended. I suggest starting on the suggested scoop for a month to get use to the taste and earthiness of the product.

Great Health Benefits!!

Every winter my sister was always catching horrible colds that had her bedridden. From the time Greens Plus was first available we both started using it. At that time there were no flavours to select from but we did not care because the health benefits were more important. Greens Plus has been her saving grace as years later she rarely gets sick. We both graduated to Greens Plus Extra Energy Cappuccino and it is still part of our morning along with our suppliments. My sons started taking Greens Plus Extra Energy when they were in high school, especially during rugby torunaments. They love chocolate, so mixed their Greens with chocolate almond or soy bev. This caught on with their team mates. They all continue to use Greens Plus in college .

Lynn October 25, 2011

can't go without it

This is the best product I have ever used. Very expensive, but worth it. When I don't take it or have run out, my husband goes and gets it or buys it for me. Seriously, without it I have no energy in the evening. One scoop and I am good for the day! It gives me extra energy to work out in the am and still be able to participate in stuff at night. Great product for me, can't say enough good things about it!!

hotcookie2 August 13, 2011

works wonders

the Greens + extra energy - cappuccino flavour - is the best. I've used it for nearly 2 yrs and one time there was only the orange flavor, disgusting indeed.
So i hope you'll keep making the cappuccino one. It does work as it says and is the only thing on earth that actually makes me forget about having a cup of coffee.
i then decided to try the Green + bone builder. Can't handle that one, it actually makes me really nauseated, each time. Can't get used to it. It's way too sweet maybe and really gritty.

Tatal April 1, 2011

Orange is the best flavour

Excellent product, gives me a great boost of energy before my runs, but the only flavour I like is the orange. The cappacinno one burns my mouth.

Jazz Funk Kitten March 4, 2011

Plastic Container

My daughter, who lives in London, England has been taking Greens + extra energy every morning with breakfast for years. Can someone please tell me where I can get the plastic container that used to come with the Greens when you purchased them at the store. I have asked at numerous places and noone seems to have them anymore?

Debbie February 26, 2011

The Very Best Product!

Sounds like I might be the only one but I Love the Cappacinno flavor! I made a switch to this twice a day, morning and mid afternoon and did away with energy shots. SO much better! Worth every penny!

Energyboosted February 23, 2011


I have been taking the product for the past 3 months prior to my workout and gives me a natural boost of energy. Not like other products where you feel sick after it wears down. Highly recommended

Kitty February 14, 2011


The orange flavour of this is definitely best....the texture is a bit gritty and gross....the color is, well, not appealing...BUT THE BENEFITS OUTWEIGHT ANY OF THIS! I feel fantastic when I'm using this product regularly, and when I miss a day, I can actually feel a difference.

healthnutter January 26, 2011

Don't be put off by how it looks

It looks like pond water but doesn't taste like it. I have the orange flavour and it's very nice. I definitely feel more awake and alert, without the nasty jittery feeling I get from coffee. I am also able to run faster and longer when taken before my morning run. And my skin looks very clear and glowing from all the 'good stuff' in it.

Overall, a very good product and well worth the money in my opinion.

Dixie October 19, 2010

feel great

Well, it seemed expensive at first, but since I've started taking it I no longer crave those 2-3 espressos I was buying every day. It turns out I am actually saving money and feel better than ever!

jack September 18, 2010

Great product!!

I'm a 20 year old college student. I had stopped drinking coffee about 4 months ago but I still felt the effects; I was tired all the time! So I began thinking about what I could do. I decided to try some multivitamins in hopes they would fill the gaps of my diet and keep me awake during the day. This didn't work out too well. I found the multivitamins made me constipated. :/

So then I heard of another energy product on the radio. I decided to just give in and take all the caffeine and such. But as I was looking for it in the drug store I found this product.

SO far I have been using it for a week and i feel great. Though... Let me say! The cappucino flavor is disgusting :/. Besides that I feel very good and I will continue to use this product!

SammyY September 18, 2010

It works.

A visiting friend let me try his Greens Plus, and I was impressed. I then bought myself Greens Plus Extra Energy and felt even better. I am chronically ill and sometimes cannot eat at all, let alone eat well, so I expect Greens Plus fills some nutritional gaps. I don't feel a hard jolt like you might get from espresso or an energy drink (yuck) but a gentle lift that lasts.

I take the Greens Plus first thing in the morning, on an empty stomach, and then wait an hour before taking prescription meds.

Michelle August 21, 2010


iv been using greens+for a year now i cant seem to go without it very good feeling and energy are all i can say

cheryl July 12, 2010

i love it

i bought the cappuccino flavour. it tastes really bad! but works amazing. i love it!

tina April 20, 2010


THIS STUFF IS AMAZING!! It really is a healthier alternative to coffee or those unhealthy energy drinks that are out in the market.. I have been taking this for only a week and I can already feel the difference. I feel great!

KCTP November 26, 2009

Great Product!!

I add this to my post workout protein shake and it does wonders for my energy levels throughout the day. Working out six days a week and taking care of my energetic two year old daughter used to tire me out, but this product has been a life saver.

Rahman October 18, 2009


At the suggestion of a friend, I started my mornings with greens+ extra energy (orange flavour). Soon, I no longer felt compelled to nap in the afternoons. I did not have 'lull' or low energy valleys during mid morning and late afternoon: most likely from reliance on caffeine. In fact, I hardly ever drink coffee now, and it feels great to be free of the coffee buzz. The energy from greens+ extra energy has momentum that I can feel through the day. Thanks for this wonderful product!!!!!

Evolve July 4, 2009

It works

The cappuccino flavour doesn't taste that great but it does give you lots of energy. I felt great!

Alex April 19, 2009

I LOVE this stuff!

I've been using greens+ for years, and greens+ extra energy for over a year now. If I run out, I can really tell when I haven't had my morning boost. The difference is subtle, but I feel a little less alert, and a little sluggish. I've tried other 'super green foods', and none can compare with the ingredients of greens+, (and it tastes the best). I feel good knowing every day I've had all those things that are so good for me - wheat grass, royal jelly, spirulina, B6, (read the ingredients, you'll be impressed!). I highly recommend greens+ extra energy. It's one really good (and painless!) thing you can do for yourself.
