Myprotein Nutri Greens Review

01/05/2016

For donkey’s years, we have been reminded time and time again to get in our 5 a day. However, for most of us, (myself included), it can be extremely difficult to eat 5, wholesome pieces of fruit and vegetables a day given how fast-paced our lives have become.

Besides, if you’re anything like me, I simply do not have the time (nor am I even willing) to chomp through a truck load of fruit and vegetables on a plate to benefit from a supposed 1g of nutrients which will more than likely offer no obvious health benefits.

Enter the glorious Myprotein Nutri Greens which will form the basis of this review.

Will this product turn you into the Hulk? Probably not. Will it offer a convenient way to get in far more vitamins and minerals at an ideal time? Absolutely.

Let’s see what all the fuss is about!

Myprotein Nutri Greens Review

Overview

Myprotein Nutri Greens is essentially a vegan-friendly ‘superfood’ blend containing an insane amount of food extracts renown for their health benefits such as broccoli, kale, green tea and spirulina to name a few.

This means that there is a useful amount of fibre, energy and vegetable proteins to get out of it which is certainly an added bonus.

If that wasn’t enough, this green powerhouse has 22 superfood extracts in total with naturally occuring nutrients found in those foods. Luvvly jubbly!

My first impression was that the Myprotein Nutri Greens looked a lot like decomposed residue from a pond, however there is just too many health benefits available to give this one a miss!

Myprotein Nutri Greens starts from £7.99 for a 100g pouch and can be bought on the Myprotein website.

Ingredients

This antioxidant-rich superfood powder is high in three natural key vitamins, namely vitamin C, vitamin B12 and vitamin K.

Per 7.5g serving (which translates into 3 small scoops), you can expect to get the following macros and micros.

25kcal

 

Protein

Carbohydrates (of which sugars

Vitamin C

Vitamin B12

Looking at the above, it is clear that Myprotein’s Nutri Greens is full of nutritional goodness which is evident through the RI (reference intake) for the day.

Low in calories, fat and sugar this superfood blend is certainly an amazingly versatile supplement to mix with any smoothie or protein shake to sneak in some extra vitamins.

It is worth pointing out that Myprotein also throw in a complementary scoop in the pouch so you do not need to buy this separately (as seen above). Awesome stuff!

Full ingredient list of the tropical flavour is as follows:

Soya Lecithin Powder, Spirulina Powder, Apple Fibre Powder (Sulphites), Barley Grass Powder, Wheatgrass Powder, Oat Flour, Alfalfa Grass Powder, Chlorella Powder, Soya Flour, Acerola Berry, Beetroot Powder, Pomegranate Powder, Siberian Ginseng, Carrot Powder, Tomato Powder, Astragalus Root Powder, Broccoli Powder, Spinach Powder, Gingko Biloba Leaf Extract (50:1), Green Tea, Grapeseed Extract, Elderberry Powder, Bilberry Fruit Powder, Flavouring, Acid (Citric Acid), Colour (Carotenes), Sweetener (Sucralose).

Pretty standard stuff here. No nasties, no hidden scientific chemicals, just nature at its finest jam packed into an easy to digest powder.

Myprotein have made it much more easier to get in 4 times your fruit and vegetable requirements for the day, which is by far the biggest game breaker proposed from this green beast.

Taste and texture

Whilst there was certainly no ‘chemical’ aftertaste with the Nutri Greens, to my surprise it was very sweet (more than I anticipated) even when mixed with water alone.

It was very easy to drink and swallow with no gag reflex which is a huge upvote, however the taste did seem to mask the natural greeny goodness I was hoping for.

It tastes great, I’ll give it that – but I feel it was missing that all-round ‘mother nature’ taste that would have made this product a much more wholesome supplement to back down.

Mixability was certainly average and I found the Nutri Greens to be on the fairly clumpy side at first. Nonetheless a few more forearm bashers of my bottle easily resolved that issue.

No unwanted thick swabs of greens were left when I finished drinking it but it was particularly frothy once I was done shaking things up.

Therefore, I advise drinking it almost immediately if you are looking to add this to your protein shake, juice or smoothie – unless you want to look like a perverted Freddie Mercury with a green moustache.

Pro tip: for maximum taste, I highly recommend you chug this down with one whole banana. It adds a little more thickness into the mix and complements the Nutri Greens very well.

Usefulness

After a week of using Myprotein Nutri Greens, I noticed I had a bit more fuel to operate on throughout my day (working a 9 to 5 and going to the gym thereafter does take its toll).

I felt my energy level was slightly more stabilised once I consumed it and I became less fatigued with fewer uncontrollable sugar cravings with the sweetener definitely playing a crucial part here.

I also saw a slight improvement in my skin complexion when I consistently added the Nutri Greens to my protein shakes for the past few days.

As a long standing victim of that teenage horror story known as acne, it has been an uphill struggle for clearer skin.

However, I’m convinced the extra nutritional boost I am getting from this mean green powder is giving my skin the healthy nourishment it needs to repair itself.

Others have also reported having an improved sense of well-being, better cognition, alertness and being able to go one more rep than usual.

Whilst I can only speak for myself, I am yet to experience these benefits so I can only imagine that those who do not take multivitamins or eat any kind of fruit or vegetables will certainly feel a bigger difference overall.

Value for money

Myprotein Nutri Greens is pretty good value for money compared to other greens out there.

For starters you can get a 100g tropical flavour pouch for £7.99 which is a great bargain, particularly if you want to try it out.

Although, Myprotein recommend 3 small scoops as one serving (which lasted me just under 2 weeks), 1 scoop is easily enough to squeeze in some lean greens which can stretch out for as long as 3 weeks if you use it every day.

To get more bang for your buck, the unflavoured version clocks in at £2 cheaper for 330g and £2.50 less for 660g. However, you’ll definitely need the stomach of a champ to withstand the similar taste to freshly cut grass.

Nonetheless, if you are looking for at least a 30 day supply of this green blend, the 330g of any variety is definitely your best bet.

Final thoughts

Whilst Myprotein Nutri Greens should not be used entirely as a substitute for whole foods, having a green mix like this in your supplement program is definitely great health insurance.

The inclusion of 22 superfood extracts is somewhat epic, combined with the fact that the tropical flavour is easy to drink and digest makes it a simply great aid.

It is worth mentioning that the Nutri Greens does have a slight ‘earthy’ smell to it which some people may find off putting. Besides, for what it smells like, it sure as hell suggests it should be consumed so just smile and suck it up.
