Good for overall nutrition.
I use this product in my smoothies and find that it is a good overall balance of nutrients that I need. I have tried other Health Force products and have really liked them too.

A few years ago a friend of mine who is a M.D. forwarded me an article from a website that he frequented, here is the condensed version on what he called the "super robust (greens) formulas".
Super Robust Formulas
The products in the super robust category are those that go the extra mile and offer more than the basics…more than extra veggies and herbs, but unexpected quality or variety of ingredients. They also tend to have few or no fillers and, of course, they tend to be the most expensive of the bunch, but you get what you pay for.
My favorite super robust formula is Vitamineral Green, which has a lot of grasses, and some kelp and sea veggies. To compliment the grasses and kelp is a healthy dose of Nettle and juices of alfalfa, dendelion, broccoli, kale and other veggies. It is high in spirulina too, so you can bet you’re getting a quality blend here. There are no fruits, but honestly, most green products don’t have enough fruits to make them a substitute for the “Red” products (see RedDrinkReviews.com), so the lack of a fruit blend is not a huge negative on my list. Vitamineral Green clocks in at $3.06 per ounce, which makes it one of the best values among the super robust formulas.
Ben Kim’s Greens, Billy’s Greens, and Sun Is Shining are all formulated at the Vitamineral Green laboratory — by expert formulator Jameth Sheridan. All these products are top quality in terms of the source and freshness of ingredients and excellent formulations.
Berry Green and Vital Greens are also on the high-end of the spectrum. They both have excellent formulations and approximately the same cost per ounce (above $5). They are heavy in spirulina and grasses, while also offering substantial amounts of fruit powders. In the case of Berry Green, this comes in the form of red berries. In the case of Vital Greens, it comes in the form of apple powder, Billberry and acerola. If you want your berries and fruits along with the green superfoods, then these are worth looking at.
Other super robust products include Udo’s Green Blend, Pure Synergy, which offers an array of mushroom powders and other high-potency herbs, Perfectly Healthy Mega Greens, which has very few ingredients, but all are super-high quality, LifeForce, All Day Energy Greens, which offers a unique mixture of quality ingredients, and Emerald Balance.
Like another reviewer stated, i too did not notice any life changing energy or wellness improvement from taking this as i was in very good physical condition already with a pretty strict diet inplace, but i know without a doubt that my body has benefitted from taking this along with the "Truly Natural Vit C" & the "Warrior Food Extreme" vanilla plus Vegan Protein for i have seen the changes over time. This is the purest, healthiest thing you could put in your body & along with diet & exercise you can transform your body to any level you wish(as long as you do the work). I was mid 40's when starting & 185lbs, now 50 & at a lean 168lbs.

One of the Best Green Powders Available
This is one of the best green powders available in terms of ingredients. The only product that might be a tiny bit better would be Pure Synergy, but even then it is almost the same ingredients with 1 or 2 additional ingredients and it costs more. In terms of value, if you buy vitamineral green here at Pharmaca, it is the best value green powder on the market.
As far as giving you energy, I don't feel like it gives you energy. But, I little kids and I don't get much sleep, so that probably has alot to do with my energy levels.
As far as taste, I mix a nice spoonful in about 5-6 oz. of room temperature water (cold water doesn't mix as well). I drink it down no problems. It's sort of like drinking strong green tea (and I don't like tea). After taking this for about a month, you will probably notice your tastes changing a little. You will probably start craving less sugary stuff. I didn't believe that would happen, but I have been taking this for about 2 and a half years now and really don't crave many sweets anymore. It mixes really well in liquid. It is probably best to take this before you eat since it is very alkalizing. I take it first thing in the morning before I eat. I sometimes take it before I go to bed as well, and I think it helps keep my turbinates (in the nasal cavity) from swelling as much as they normally do.
I have noticed I don't get sick as often while taking this. If you are overweight this stuff is perfect for you. I don't want to sound like a TV ad, but this stuff is absolutely perfect for people who are overweight looking to lose weight and restore their health. Some overweight people probably have slow thyroid problems and the seaweed in this will help restore that. Plus, if you take a bunch of this, like 3-4 tablespoons a day, you not be as hungry (because your body will crave less nutrition...you'll be getting more nutrition from this powder) and you will eat less food.
