slightly unpleasant taste
slightly unpleasant taste
If I add the recommended dosage to my kids' drink, they can easily pick it up and refuse to drink. Besides, it turns the drink to green colour. Need a stronger juice and a green coloured one to mask it. I add a tiny bit to some kiwi juice b4 serving it to kids. The price is on the high side too.

I was taking Green Vibrance but due to cost thought I would try this one. So far so good. I combine this with 1 Tablespoon of liquid chlorophyll in water. I just noticed this has been discontinued!! How unfortunate!
lot of value

probiotics seem to help my digestion. I prefer powders over capsules as you get a lot more "good bugs" for the price
Very easy to take

I find this very easy to take in the mornings. I can't be sure, but I do feel my skin has improved since taking it. I take half a teaspoon in luke warm water first thing. The taste is mild, so no problems there at all :-)

You can really tell it's being absorbed into the bowel when you go to the toilet :) Great that it doesn't need refrigeration and contains high quality green powders as well.
