- Product Q&A
You can combine greens+ extra energy with other sources of caffeine but it is important to note how much caffeine you are taking and what your personal threshold is. One serving of greens+ extra energy contains 100mg of naturally occurring caffeine (10%) from the kola nut. This is the average amount of caffeine in a regular cup of coffee.
All formulas with the original greens+ base have been tested to contain <20ppm of gluten which is below the amount allowed by Health Canada in a gluten free product. However we cannot label original greens+ formulas gluten free because they contain wheat and barley grass; although these grasses are not direct sources of gluten they can contain gluten due to possible grains in the grass. For those with high sensitivities or celiac disease we recommend our Vegan greens+ O.
Refrigeration is recommended to provide optimal product freshness after opening. Refrigeration is a controlled environment, so we know the product is not sitting on a window ledge, on top of a radiator, or kept in other non-optimal storage situations. A cool temperature will also reduce oxidation and maintain probiotic stability. However, greens+ is ok to consume if it has not been refrigerated for a short period of time.
That’s a great question. First of all, greens+ extra energy contains 100 mg of caffeine – this is roughly the same amount of caffeine that you’d get in a cup of coffee. But greens+ extra energy won’t cause you to crash like coffee will – that’s because greens+ extra energy was formulated to address the underlying reasons why you feel tired. First, we take the original greens+ formula, which has been clinically proven to increase energy at the cellular level. Then, we add natural, energy-boosting ingredients. Kola nut seed extract provides a natural source of caffeine, which gives you sustained energy. The naturally occurring polyphenols in the kola nut are nourishing to the nervous system. Taurine increases physical and mental energy without overstimulation, increases muscular energy and endurance, and improves psychological resiliency. greens+ extra energy also includes glycine, which regulates blood sugar, gotu kola, which reduces mental fatigue, Brazilian ginseng to counteract stress, and vitamin B6, which helps with glucose metabolism.
Since greens+ contains over 500mg of phosphatidylcholine, the same level currently set as the adequate intake for most North Americans, consumption would typically negate the need for additional lecithin supplements.
Yes! greens+ extra energy is a great addition to your smoothie! When making a smoothie, it’s a good idea to balance your fruit with plenty of fibre, protein and healthy fats so you don’t spike your blood sugar. If you’re looking for recipe ideas, check out our Genuine Hub.
Yes you can, but keep in mind that boiling water can damage the nutrients and phenolic content. We recommend that instead of using boiling water, that you use hot water instead.
Yes you can – greens+ extra energy can be mixed with milk and it will have the same benefits.
The probiotics in greens+ are grown on a dairy medium. There is no milk added, but it’s an ingredient within an ingredient. There would be a very very small amount within but we must note this as we comply with labeling regulations on potential allergens.
Unfortunately we do not have a dairy free greens+ extra energy but you could take a look at Vegan greens+ O and take the extra energy tablets separately. The tablets do not contain dairy.
A couple of ingredients have prescribed maximum duration of use of 3 months – green tea, ginseng, gingko, licorice and grape seed – so all products with these ingredients would require these warnings by law. Even though greens+ has been used by thousands of people for decades, the need for this warning is still mandated by Health Canada as no study with a longer duration of use exists. Please consult with your health care practitioner for further advice.
We can only recommend the dosage listed on the label but splitting the dose between the morning and afternoon would certainly work! If you find you get better results doing it this way then that’s great!
Many people prefer to take greens+ extra energy with water as a replacement for their morning coffee. If you prefer to mix it into a smoothie that is fine as well.
It is not recommended, as all greens+ formulas contain standardized herbs and botanical extracts. This caution is a Health Canada requirement and one you will find on the majority of products in our industry with compliant labels. The government takes a very cautious approach with this delicate population and requires this warning on almost all ingredients.
However, our fermented organic gut superfoods+ is made from fermented fruits, vegetables, culinary herbs and prebiotics, and is safe for pregnancy and breastfeeding.
