Green drinks are a quick, easy method to get healthier. They add more nutrient-dense fruit and veggies into your diet while helping you detoxify your system in the most natural way.

Most of us aren’t anywhere close to overdosing on vegetables in our diets. The majority of us eat just half of the recommended amount of vegetables every day, only 10% of which is dark green.

Green drinks are a convenient way to consume a variety of nutrient dense foods in a single glass.

What’s the difference between green juices and powders?

The main difference between greens juices and powders is the calories. Yes, it is better to eat than drink veggies and fruits. But it’s better to drink them than not have them at all.

Greens supplements are the powdered remains of fruits, vegetables, and herbs that have been either freeze- or light-dried, so the end product is essentially calorie-free or very low-calorie.

Powder Supplements will often contain a wider variety of ingredients, as sourcing the ingredients for the supplement isn’t limited to what can be easily pressed and juiced.

The ease of use and portability make greens supplements a better option for people who travel a lot and have trouble getting in many servings of fruits and vegetables when on the road.

So which greens supplement do we recommend?

Part of CIVILIAN STRONG’s mission is to consolidate the best foods, supplements, physical exercises, mental practices, and global adventures into one place for you.  Getting enough vegetables is important for anyone wanting to live the best life possible, so we consider this a baseline product we should all be using.

There are lots of green drinks – Total Living Drink Greens, Athletic Greens, Green Vibrance, Patriot Power Greens, Amazing Grass Green Superfood, Organifi Green Juice, and the list goes on.  Ingredients are important, price is important and certainly taste is critical (gone are the days of needing to gag down healthy food)!

While they’re not inexpensive, once we realized the cost of finding all of those ingredients ourselves, the time hassle of personally juicing every day, and our personal benefits of mental clarity, feeling stronger and being healthier, we realized it’s very reasonable.

Our top two picks, two of the well established suppliers, are Athletic Greens and Organifi Green Juice. Both are superb products, but different:
