It contains a comprehensive blend of herbs, gras ses, adaptogens, mushrooms, probiotics and fruits. If taken daily, it is a good way to achieve the daily recommended serving of fruits and vegetables. It is still recommended to eat your daily serving of vegetables in addition to this. In short, it basically covers most aspects of your health like immune, endurance, detoxification, nutrition, energy etc! The taste is quite mild (compared to Healthforce Nutritionals Vitamineral Green) with some herbal taste. I came to quite like it. It uses quality ingredients that are organic (no pesticides), wild crafted (more nutrition than farm-based) or naturally grown without the use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides. It contains no cheap filler like lecithin, apple pectin (not that they are bad, these are just very cheap products). It blends well with a blender bottle and very easy to wash off. The company uses gras s juice instead of whole gras s. This ensures that you get more nutrition per mg, without the fiber. Paradise Herbs is a reputable company that does not uses harsh solvents like hexane. The supplements contain no fillers, binders or flow agents (in case you are wondering, there are products with flow agents like magnesium stearate). The herbs are not fractionated either. The large container neck means that it's easy to scoop the powder. It is quite expensive for 364 mg but worth it imo. It's a bit low on the green food (3500 mg). I would recommend having additional green blend to reap the full benefits of the green food. Some of the ingredients might be low in weight but the herbs are known to work in synergy, producing powerful effect as compared to the potency of individual herbs. 2 scoops will give more proper doses daily like 250mg (similar to a small cap) or 500mg of mushrooms (similar to a normal cap). However, this would mean a 30 days serving if you take 2 scoops daily. The large container is only half-filled. Personal experience - I have tried other green blends and always came back to Orac-Energy Greens despite the price. I found myself to be more likely to fall sick and less energetic when I was not taking and was testing out other green drinks. I take 2 scoops in the morning once I wake up. It makes me feel alert and give me the energy to last the rest of the day. Check out my page for more reviews!

My three year old little girl has a mild case of atopic dermatitis and I did a lot of research on how antioxidants and whole green foods help with the condition. I've been giving her this powder in a little "green drink" daily for the past couple of weeks. I have noticed a significant improvement in her skin. She usually gets a bad flare-up when she is fighting a virus. She just got over a bad virus and since I've been giving her the greens every day this is the first time she hasn't had a flare-up. I've been taking it and giving it to my other two children as well. I have definately noticed an improvement in my overall sense of well-being and my energy levels are higher. I would highly recommend this product to everyone. I'm excited to build a strong foundation of health in my family now so that when my children grow up they won't have to deal with so many of the health issues that are plaguing our society due to poor diet and lack of nutrition. I like how this product has a really high ORAC rating and is supercharged with antioxidants. The price is very good compared with other green whole food products. As much as is possible, I'm probably going to take this for the rest of my life.

I've tried many supplements over the years and this has had the most immediate and profound impact on my health. I have used it for a few weeks, in which time my anxiety and mood has calmed and improved, my nails have grown, and my strength and energy have increased. I did notice some strong detox side effects (headache and fatigue) at first but went away, so I would recommend a new user start out w/a small amount and work up to the suggested dosage. I just purchased a second container and now my husband is using it too! I highly suggest the blender ball, also try V8 or yerba mate as a mixer. The powder mixes easily and isn't gritty. The taste is mild, sweet, grassy...husband calls it "liquid hay"! The health benefits that you really feel are totally worth it!

IF YOU WANT TO LOOSE WEIGHT, GET RID OF YOUR FATIGUE, DECREASE CHANCE OF CANCER OR ANY DISEASE RELATED TO BAD METABOLISM AND FREE RADICALS, AND YOU WANT YOUR LIVER SQUEAKY CLEAN USE THIS !!! IT IS AMAZING. AND IT IS ACTUALLY CHEAP. YOU GET ALL IN ONE PRODUCT, GO SEARCH EVERY INGREDIENT IN THIS PRODUCT (AS A SINGLE SUPPLEMENT) AND CALCULATE FINAL PRICE, YOU WILL SEE. I AM NOT PAYED TO SAY ANYTHING ABOUT THIS PRODUCT, ACTUALLY IN MY COUNTRY BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA THIS COMPANY DOESN'T EXIST, SO, I AM VERY GRATEFUL TO IHERB FOR THIS ONE. ACTUALLY THIS IS THE BEST PRODUCT OF ALL SUPERFOOD BLEDNS ON IHERB, BY MY HUMBLE OPINION, AND I AM A PHARMACIST.
If you had Ten Stars, that's what I would rate ORAC-Energy Greens

After many years of feeling tired, listless and not good for anything, this "green mud" has certainly brought me out of the doldrums. I take it first thing in the AM, mixed with a little apple juice and I'd better hold on to my hat, as I'm really getting my chores done in double time. Never seen anything help my "feelings" so much. Can't say enough about this product . . . just don't take ORAC-Energy Greens away from me! It is truly a SUPERFOOD!
