Does Organifi Green Juice Increase Energy & Weight Loss?
There are “reviews” out there by people who have never actually tried this product so I wanted to give you a more realistic review based on my experience with it for a full 90 days.
So my sister convinced me to try Organifi Green Juice knowing I hated the taste of green drinks by dangling the “it tastes nothing like the others!” carrot in front of me.
As I read more on it, I realized it’s essentially a green powder designed to pack a big nutritional punch.
Here’s how it works:
It literally floods your body with a high concentration of exceptional nutrients from 11 different herbs and foods that are known to help detoxify and heal you (I’ve gone into the science in the ingredients section later on in case you’re interested).
Once these nutrients enter your body, they start alkalizing the acidity inside allowing your cellular waste to be filtered out more effectively.
This means less pain in your muscles and joints, increased energy, weight loss, noticeably clearer skin and better all round health.
Well, that’s the theory anyway!
It was still after all, a green drink and as health conscious as I am, I didn’t make green drinks part of my daily routine because they tasted like freshly cut grass.
So after a lot of research, I actually decided to try it out for three full months then give this detailed Organifi Green Juice review.
Does It Work?
What I Liked
1. Noticeably Better Skin Health.
How cool is this!
I noticed 2 previously dark “liver spots” on my hand had completely vanished (between 4-5 o’clock, lower right corner).
I did nothing different other than drink the juice and they had faded into oblivion after 60 days.
Skin overall on the entire body is more radiant and I’ve been told I look more “glowing”.
This was a most unexpected benefit, for sure.
Just to let you know, this statement has some very sound science behind it!
They did a study and found people of Black, Caucasian and Asian backgrounds who consumed more fruits and vegetables were considered more attractive to others due to their enhanced color or “glow” that occurs as a result of the carotenoids in these types of foods.
Here, take a look:
Organifi Green Juice is brimming with these types of nutrients that can really restore your skin’s vitality and overall appearance.
2. Softer, Shinier Hair
As a result of adding this to my diet, I also noticed my hair softer and way shinier than before.
I must point out that I try to live a very healthy lifestyle so it’s a combination of factors but Organifi Green Juice definitely helped.
Quick tip: Other foods that are excellent for your hair health that I regularly consume are walnuts, flaxseeds, avocados, greens like spinach and arugula as well as all kinds of raw fruits.
I don’t actually use chemical shampoos or conditioners – I just use either homemade formulas; or water and then condition with coconut oil and occasionally 2-3 drops of essential oils.
The change in my hair was gradual. I noticed it over a period of time so do not expect drastic changes overnight!
3. Lower Blood Pressure
I also got consistently better blood pressure readings. Totally not intended.
Just out of pure curiosity, I decided to measure my blood pressure to see if there was any effect.
When I measured it after 30 minutes of consuming this juice, there was a definite improvement:
Day Before 30 Min After
1 122/64 118/62
2 123/63 120/61
3 119/63 115/60
4 123/62 120/60
Each reading was a result of measuring it 3 times and taking the average, so I did it as comprehensively as possible in order to get the most accurate results.
I only measured it for four days but it was enough to verify Organifi Green Juice’s claims that taking this does indeed reduce blood pressure.
4. Increased Energy…& Better Sleep
After taking the juice for a a few days, I cannot honestly say I experienced an energy boost until…
Around day 5 when I really felt a difference!
I also tested it by taking it pre workout and again, I experienced a surge of energy that helped me work out for longer.
Then I noticed I would sleep deeper and wake up feeling very well rested than before.
So yes, while it’s not an energy drink, it most definitely helped with vigorous activity and sleep.
5. Time & Money Saver
Of course, it would be ideal to be able to make your own blend from fresh garden fruits and vegetables but the reality is most of us don’t have time to slice, blend, clean, etc.
I can understand how some just don’t want the hassle.
There is no denying Organifi Green Juice is a super quick way to get excellent nutrients into your body.
From a money saving side, it was quite significant.
Buying all of these organic foods and herbs then juicing/making them into a powder then drying them isn’t cheap and it takes a lot of time.
Just to give you an idea; if you were to buy each of the ingredients in powdered form and make a one month supply of it, it would cost you around $193.55 Vs $57.95. Not to mention the hours involved.
I ended up getting a 3-month supply of it for $149.95 so the cost savings are even more pronounced.
6. Ingredient Quality
As well as having very powerful ingredients, everything is certified organic.
It’s great for allergy sufferers as it contains no gluten, soy or dairy.
It’s also vegan so anyone can try it.
These elements were important to me as I really feel environmental and commercial sprays, toxins and chemicals significantly impact one’s health.
7. Great Taste
A lot of green juices either:
1) Try to put too many “things” into it – like 20-30 different “superfoods” and it ends up tasting really weird or they…
2) Taste like death.
This green juice had a surprisingly sweet and pleasant minty taste that I really liked. It was like a liquid candy cane.
Greens are known to be bitter so this was one of the biggest things that stood out.
You simply mix it with water and drink.
Just adjust the amount of water depending on how thick or watery you like it.
What I Didn’t Like
1. Powder May Scatter
Try not to do what I did and slam the container on the countertop then open it right away as it will shower you with a fine powder, lol.
2. Can Thicken
Don’t mix it, then go and take a phone call and come back 7 minutes later because it’ll thicken around the edges of the glass.
If that doesn’t bother you, then fine but for me, my liquids need to be watery otherwise I feel like I’m drinking gobs of cotton balls.
*Some folks stated the container only being 3/4 full upon receipt but I wouldn’t worry about this.
They are simply unaware it’s sold by weight.
Organifi’s website states there is enough product for a 30 day supply.
Well I tested it, and it gave me 34 full scoops – that’s 34 days supply so you actually get more value for money.
Who Is Organifi For?
One unique thing about this product is it is ideal for a very wide range of folks:
- Acne sufferers – If you’re suffering from acne, you can use this product in conjunction with a thorough body cleanse. So think of it as a “clean and nourish” protocol where you dump the gunk from your body then infuse it with this concentration of premium nutrition.
- Those with no time – If you don’t have the time or can’t be bothered making your own juice or smoothie then this will be a pretty good substitute. Wasn’t complicated at all to make: Put 1 scoop into a glass with water, stir and drink. That’s it. It takes about 15 seconds to make each morning.
- Athletes – Those who regularly train will benefit greatly from this as it not only helps with performance and energy levels, but it contains ingredients like mint and turmeric which are outstanding for digestion and powerful anti inflammatories – just what you need post training. I’m now recovering much quicker and feeling less sore after workouts.
- Recovering patients – It’s a handy meal replacement and/or substitute if you’re recovering from something and need top nutrition fast. It’s always best to ease yourself back into eating after major trauma or illness but slowly sipping this once or twice a day will improve your overall health.
- Those feeling run down – If you’re constantly tired, it can definitely help with recharging your batteries and keep you humming along for the day. Low energy levels are usually due to flat/weak adrenal glands and this contains the precise herbs that give them a little kick start. Ashwagandha is known for it’s adrenal support and hormone balancing abilities.
- Those not getting enough daily fruits and vegetables – This is a vitamin, mineral and antioxidant goldmine so if you don’t eat enough daily fruit and veggies, this can help immensely. Fact is, a staggering 96% of Americans don’t get enough fiber which by definition is a plant nutrient. If they aren’t getting adequate daily fiber, they are also getting insufficient fruit and vegetable intake since both contain plenty of it. In other words, you’re very likely to be in the majority so this drink will only help!
- Those looking to boost their general health – It gave me an overall feeling of calmness, focus and wellbeing and by day 7, I was buzzing. Sometimes folks don’t have any major health issues but just want to try something to make them feel better and this does.
- Those on a budget: If you don’t have the cash right now for a high quality blender (which can range from several hundred to over $1,000.00) then this is an excellent substitute you can use as you go. You are going to get far superior nutrition infused into your cells drinking this powerhouse than anything you eat on the road, at work or from a “fast food” joint. Granted, it’s not “fresh from the garden” but it’s the next best thing with gently dried ingredients (as opposed to firing them at high heat) that you won’t find in your standard supermarket.
What’s In It?
Ok, so let’s see what we’ve got here in its ingredient list:
Chlorella – Helps You Look Younger
This is known for it’s super high antioxidant levels which reduce oxidative stress…meaning it keeps you looking young by shielding your cells from damage. It’s protein, vitamin A & B levels as well as magnesium, zinc and iron translate into smoother, clearer skin.
It also helps the detox process along very aggressively by ridding your body from accumulated heavy metals and radiation. You only need a small dose of about one teaspoon and wait between 1-2 weeks before noticing a difference in your skin. Chlorella packs quite a punch!
Moringa – Powerful Anti Aging Herb
This herb is truly remarkable.
Not only does it help detoxify the body, but I found from just one source alone that it’s actually had over 700 published studies done on it! I sorted through them and found two that will be of great interest to you.
The first study found that moringa dramatically improves the skin’s ability to heal from wounds or as they put it; “remarkable proliferative and migratory effect on normal human dermal fibroblasts”. (lol)
This is absolutely fantastic as acne frequently leaves wounds on the skin that sometimes can take a while to heal.
Well, moringa was shown to accelerate healing and give the skin a mighty boost in doing so.
The second study showed moringa (in cream form) greatly enhanced skin by having a profound revitalizing effect on it as well as supporting anti aging.
In other words, it helps make your skin look better overall as well as helping you look younger.
So it’s basically a one man army herb – healing, repair and enhances skin’s appearance.
It’s skin healing and enhancement abilities come from the fact it’s absolutely loaded with vitamins A & C, calcium, potassium and has around twice the amount of protein as yogurt…without the saturated fat of course.
Spirulina – Heavy Metal Detoxifier
This is an intense heavy metal detoxifier.
It gets rid of accumulated heavy meats in your body like mercury, arsenic, lead, cadmium and a whole host of substances that build up in your body over time.
For example, if you have mercury fillings or eat a lot of seafood particularly tuna, you’re almost assured of having a lot of mercury inside.
Many people report after a few days/weeks they can think much clearer, have greater energy and have a natural “glow”.
Given it is packed with over 10 vitamins and 10 minerals (that we know of) including vitamins A, K, B12 and magnesium, potassium and iron; it outright promotes greater overall health.
Another advantage it has for your skin is it cleanses it of any candida which means you won’t get the feeling of having to constantly itch but can’t figure out why!
Mint – Relaxes Body
Aside from soothing digestion, the oil inside the mint plant is a top shelf skin purifier. It soothes it which is a welcome quality if one has itching, redness or pain. This portion of the formula also contributes greatly to the mixture’s pleasant taste. Mint also has a very calming and soothing effect on the digestive tract.
Beets – Boosts Physical Performance
Aside from being able to boost performance in both exercise and sex (woohoo!), beets also happen to be anti inflammatory and anti aging.
You want as many anti inflammatory foods inside you as possible as this will kick out the nasty acids that break down your cells and end up stagnating your lymph system. This in turn is the root cause of many health problems.
Since it’s also high in antioxidants, it helps age you better by keeping your skin smooth, elastic and supple.
Matcha Green Tea – Regenerates Cells
Brimming with chlorophyll, this green tea is richer in the substance than other green tea types.
Chlorophyll gives your blood a turbo boost in terms of bringing oxygen and nutrition to your cells which help clean them.
This in turn facilitates regeneration (new skin cells!) very well and it is also a powerful body detoxifier and cleanser of the blood. It cleans it out of heavy metals and other toxins absorbed through food and environment.
This is the one green tea to rule them all.
Wheatgrass – Deep Cleanser
Wheatgrass is the king of grasses and it’s juice is like an elixir of life due to it’s ultimate nutritional profile.
It has so much goodness in it, that you only need a “shot” of wheatgrass juice to reap all the benefits.
As well as chlorophyll, it’s loaded with more than 17 amino acids, vitamins and minerals to cleanse and build the blood, liver and help with glowing skin. It actively fights acne due to it’s anti inflammatory properties by alkalizing the body and helping to expel acidic waste much like beets do.
Ashwagandha – Balances Hormones & Anti Stress
Also known as withania, ashwagandha is a miracle herb that actually adapts (it’s known as an “adaptogen” herb) inside your body depending on the condition!
For example, if your thyroid is either underactive or overactive, this herb will tweak itself accordingly to fix either condition.
It’s like the special forces of herbs, able to sit and wait in stealth and depending on whatever situation, it takes action.
Ashwagandha is well known for it’s ability to balance your hormones and therefore help your body deal with both internal and external stress. That’s absolutely imperative in maintaining clear skin since either type of stress can aggravate chronic skin conditions.
Turmeric – Powerful Anti-Inflammatory
This is an antifungal and antibacterial powerhouse with the ability to annihilate any harmful microbes it comes into contact with. It’s also a very powerful anti inflammatory and pain reliever that arrests inflammation very quickly.
Among the top healthiest foods in existence.
Lemon – Your Kidneys Friend
Lemon is the natural world’s enigma. They are acidic when initially consumed but after being metabolized, yield an alkaline ash.
What this means is your body gets cleansed by this highly astringent fruit by purifying your kidneys and helping them eliminate cellular waste efficiently.
This is absolutely key in opening up your main channel of elimination to expel stagnant acids and keep your skin clear.
A backed up set of kidneys means the lymphatic waste cannot escape and it usually oozes out of the next easiest and largest exit – your skin.
Coconut Water – Hydrates Your Cells
Coconut water is a mildly sweet yet extraordinary healing liquid. It is bursting with minerals like potassium, magnesium, zinc and calcium and interestingly has the identical make up of human plasma.
This means when you drink it, it gives your blood an overhaul, flooding it with B vitamins and electrolytes.
Hydrating your skin and body at the cellular level, it’s ideal for those doing intermittent fasting.
Because it is so alkaline and cooling to the body, it’s equally effective on the inside of the body as it is applied topically to help with skin conditions.
Important Product Info
When to take it
1 scoop, once a day first thing in the morning on an empty stomach is standard.
According to their trials though, the benefits really start kicking in when you take it twice daily; which is how I take it.
Where Can I Buy Organifi Green Juice?
Best place to buy it is directly from their website.
It’s super fast (at your door in 2 days) and it’s just best to deal with the company directly.
You have the option to either purchase it as a subscription or a once off.
Personally, I bought it as a once off then repurchased when needed.
Shipping/ Wait Time
US customers usually get it within 2 days.
They have a really impressive full money back guarantee which I thought was great.
Get this – even if you don’t like the taste after you’ve had it over 30 days; they’ve got you covered.
Final Thoughts On Organifi
The quality of the ingredients is what really attracted me to this product because I know my herbs fairly well so I thought to just give it a try.
Up until that point, I hadn’t bought a single supplement, protein shake or anything like that so I wasn’t really quite sure what to expect.
I prefer to eat my fruit and vegetables as fresh and as raw as I can and that hasn’t changed.
If you’re serious about health and/or cleaning up your body from the inside, then that’s just something one has to do.
However this herbal blend woke me up a little in terms of being able to incorporate absolutely fantastic health and skin saving nutrients in a very convenient way.
It tastes WAY better than any other green juice I’ve tried, is reasonably priced for a premium product with an all organic mix and it gets positive results.
If you’re looking for a magic “one drink fixes everything” product, then this isn’t it nor does it exist.
However if you wish to enjoy numerous health benefits, both on the inside and outside, then my recommendation is to try it out for at least a month and see how you go.
Keep in mind that although many people raved about feeling better, getting nicer skin, hair, nails and other physical benefits; you can very likely improve a lot of other things that will have much bigger impact on your long term health.
Lowering your cholesterol and blood pressure for example is only going to help your heart health.
This of course can be achieved by combining this product with a healthy lifestyle and you will never look back.
It’s not without fault but this is definitely one of the better products I’ve tried this year.
I hope this review of Organifi Green Juice has been helpful.
