After getting myself ‘acquainted’ with Vital Greens, Australia’s number one selling super-food, I realized that Vital Greens is more than just a natural supplement. It’s a comprehensive powder-form supplement which consists of a blend of nutrient dense greens, vegetables, fruits,herbs, vitamins and minerals, powerful antioxidants,pre and probiotics that are essential for a healthy diet. I also really like the fact that it is wheat-free, gluten-free and dairy-free too. With no artificial colouring, sweeteners or whatsoever, this supplement is simply perfect for raw vegans too!
Vital Greens comes in a form of convenient travel-packs or sachets. Each sachet of 10 grams contains a whooping 76 vital ingredients including superfoods like wheatgrass! Juicing wheatgrass can sometimes be of a hassle besides, not every local supermarket here sells wheatgrass. And because of that, Vital Greens will receive an extra thumbs-up from me!

It is recommended to consume Vital Greens in the morning by dissolving 1 sachet of Vital Greens in 200 ml to 300 ml of water, non-acidic juice or milk. Since Vital Green is high in alkalinity with its high percentage of greens, it will be neutralized when it is mixed with any acidic substances.
The Taste Test
I’m not going to lie but Vital Greens, alone with water, didn’t taste very pleasant at all. I mean it’s understandable when raw vegetables, in the first place, didn’t taste any better either. There’s this dry burning aftertaste in my throat after taking a few sips of it. Since I didn’t want to ruin my appetite for breakfast, I figured that I could probably add Vital Greens into my green juice or smoothie. And guess what? It tasted so much better with apple juice or soya milk with bananas.
When I first saw the printed words on the packaging which reads “including Brahmi”, I thought it was rather queer to have a food substance which has a name that sounds like the name of an Indian priest . Well, it turned out to be the name of a traditional Indian herb which has been clinically proven to boost memory, learning and concentration in children.
Like Vital Greens, Vital Kids are ideal for vegan and vegetarian kids. Hmmm… I wonder if kids could actually survive on a vegan or vegetarian diet? That would mean no McDonalds or KFC meals for them.
So,folks, whether you’re an adult or still trapped in a kid’s body, stay healthy by adding some greens to your meal each day. It’s even better if you could “greenify” your breakfast!
