Superfood Review

Hello and Welcome to Wellness Wednesday! Today I will be reviewing a superfoods blend I recently purchased to increase my overall health. I decided to try the Amazing Grass Green Superfood blend. It comes in a powder that is supposed to last for 30 days. You add one scoop to water, juice or smoothie once a day. I chose the Green Superfood blend mainly because it contained spirulina, chlorella, maca, and a pre and probiotic as well as many other superfoods. I was specifically looking for spirulina, which is a form of bacteria that is high in nutrients and supports immune health. Chlorella is a form of green algae that is known to clear out toxins from your body. I also wanted a pre and probiotic to support gut health. This particular blend had all that and more. I decided to try the berry flavor thinking it would mesh well with smoothies if need be. I have been taking the blend every morning for the past 2 weeks and it is disgusting. It comes out a swampy green color and does not dissolve well. It has a faint taste of berries but mostly just burns my throat. I have resorted to mixing in some crystal light so I can actually drink it. I have tried it in a smoothie once or twice which did help conceal the flavor but not completely. There was still an undertone of ick that I cannot identify. I have noticed that my gut health might be improving because TMI ALERT I have been going to the bathroom more regularly. Overall, I think it is working but it tastes disgusting so I would maybe try it in different flavors.
