NewGreens Review and Giveaway! CLOSED

NewGreens, by Pure Prescriptions, is a dietary supplement that increases the intake of antioxidants and other nutrients that are deficient in our daily diets. It is loaded (Wait until you see just how loaded!) with antioxidants and nutrients that "improve gastrointestinal function and detoxification like probiotics, enzymes, fiber and ingredients that are known to support liver function." Phew! A lot of big important words there!   Did you know that "less than 25% of the population actually consumes an adequate amount of fruits and vegetables, and antioxidants are in short supply in most people’s diet."?  Yikes!   I'm not going to throw anyone under the bus, or anything, but I'd say there are quite a few of us that could benefit greatly from these products....just sayin'! ;-)

I was stoked to have been given an opportunity to try out NewGreens, and I have to say, it did not disappoint.  Before we get to all that, though, how about a little info about the different products they have to offer......You're going to love all this goodness.

As I mentioned before, I was super lucky (and super excited!) to be asked to try out one of their products and it turned out to be the Berry flavor that I got to put to the test.  And, boy was I ready...especially since I had been feeling a bit under the weather due to some recent traveling. 

So, let's get down to business.....
The suggested use (which was the same for each product): "Add one scoop to 10-12 oz. of juice, cold water or your preferred milk such as rice, almond or soy. Mix well. Enjoy at least once a day!"  

Alright, easy enough.
I chose to mix with milk the first day.  Using the nifty little shaker that came with the pouch, I carefully measured out 10oz of milk and added one scoop of powder....

 ...then shook crazy....because I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical as to the blend-ability of it....of ANY greens drink, for that matter.  Trust me when I say that I've had my fair share of nasty drinks, which has left me very hesitant when it comes to that first sip.  Enough about my strange quirks, though....THIS is what came out of that shaker....


.....Holy mother of creaminess!   Win #1....There was NOT. A. LUMP. to be found in the glass nor in the bottom of the shaker. (If you've ever made a greens drink before than you know what I'm talking about when I mention the bottom of the shaker. lol ) Everything about the consistency was perfect.

Win #2 was the taste.  It was a great balance of Berry flavor without being over sweet.  I don't know about you, but I feel there is such thing as being too sweet....and this was not it.  For me, this would be a great option for a meal on the go.

Because I'm not always looking for something heavy, or to replace a meal completely, I was definitely looking forward to trying NewGreens with water, too.  I was excited to see if it blended as well and if it was just as tasty.  So, the next day I added my 10 ounces of water and one scoop of Berry powder to the shaker; gave a less vigorous shake (see, already my confidence in NewGreens was growing!), and to my surprise, it was JUST AS SMOOTH!  I found this mixture to have the same taste and consistency as a bottle of flavored water you'd pick up at the grocery store.  It was refreshing with just the right amount of flavor....again, not too sweet or overbearing.

On top of the NewGreens Berry tasting so great, I noticed (almost immediately) that I had more energy and also that my head cold didn't linger around as long as it usually does.  One of the ways that the energy boost was so obvious to me was because I made the mistake of enjoying a refreshing Berry drink a little to close to bedtime....and as you can imagine, I had a late night....a very productive night...but a late night none the less.  I guess I should have paid a little more attention to that "New Greens Berry also features our Energizing Herbal Blend, which uses traditional herbs and extracts to enhance stamina and energy, with out the jitters of caffeine." part.  :-/

So, final grade...A+++!  I really look forward to finishing off my 30 day supply and enjoying all the added energy that is going to come with it!  Maybe this is just the nudge I need to help shed those stubborn...ehem...20 pounds that I've been trying to shed for months now.  I'll be sure to let you know how it goes! ;-)

  1. I would like to try the organic one, because simply, it is organic.

  2. These sound amazing! I've just recently had my second child and am looking for something to help get me back my pre baby body!

    1. Thanks so much for your comment! When you have a moment, please add at least your first name to your comment (or in a "reply" to this comment) so I know who to credit for the entry. Thanks so much and GOOD LUCK!

  3. I'd love to try the organic or berry. I'm always looking for a great way to have no excuses when it comes to meals. I've gotten "too busy" for breakfast more than I'd like to admit and if I had something like this I'm sure I'd grab this to go instead of skipping completely.

  4. I want to try the original for weight management. It would be a great afternoon snack.

  5. I think I would love to try the original. I wonder what it tastes like! :)

  6. I want to try the organic because its organic! :) eclairre(at)ymail(dot)com

  7. HI! I want the Berry! I am always worried about whether I'm eating enough veggies and fruits per day! This sounds great!

  8. I would love to try the Berry, because I think that flavor would probably be the best!

  9. I'd like to try the Berry flavor one too, because it's usually my favorite flavor.

  10. I would love to try the Organic because we consume organic produce at home. I have been a little under the weather so the body detox and energy would be most welcome. :)

  11. Organic - enough said! I am really curious if drinking this in the morning had you cutting down your caffeine intake? You know how I'm trying to kick the habit!

    1. No, I didn't cut back on my caffeine intake. I more so used this as a meal replacement (when I mixed it with milk) or as just as an added bonus to getting more water intake into my day. I have a tendency to not drink enough water each day, so this was a yummy way to do just that, along with all the fruits and veggies that came for the ride.

  12. I'd love to try the berry, I'm always looking for a quick and nutritious breakfast option, since I often times forget about me in the morning.

  13. I can't get the twitter link to paste into the rafflecopter, but I tweeted. Not sure if I'm the only one with this issue.

    1. Hi Aline! Thanks so much for your feedback. If you refresh your screen, and try again, it usually resolves the problem. Thanks for your entry! Good luck!

    2. Tried, but still didn't work. I've had it work on other site's rafflecopter contests ok, so not sure why it won't work with yours. Hmmm...

    3. No worries...I've got ya covered!:-) Thanks for trying again!

  14. I would def try the original,or the berry' I love the draw of antioxidants!!

  15. I have tried & LOVE the Organic!


    1. Oh fantastic! Some have asked what it tastes like??

  16. I'd try any of them. It's new to me, but looks really good so I'm not picky.

  17. This sound awesome . . . . berry is right up my alley . . . . and to have energy and lose a few pounds would be a bonus!

  18. I would love to try the Organic blend...why?
    "Other Ingredients: Contains no artificial flavors, colors, dairy, or sugar. Gluten Free and 100% Vegan Friendly!"
    With multiple food allergies, including milk, gluten, eggs, and wheat, seeing that it contained none of these things made my heart skip a beat!
