It’s important to ensure that your body is getting enough of the right nutrients every day. Now, more than ever, with the COVID-19 Coronavirus causing a growing global pandemic, we need our immune system to be at its most resilient. Sometimes though, with the best will in the world, other aspects of life get in the way and things get… out of balance. One easy way to ensure you’re getting enough of the right nutrients is by drinking a superfood green powder supplement. This Best Green Superfood Powders Buyer’s Guide shares our 5 favorite green juice drinks (plus a bonus one) that make a huge improvement to our immunity, everyday mood, health, energy & stress levels, skin condition, and general wellness.
While green superfood powders shouldn’t be seen as a substitute for eating well and regularly, we think they’re a fast and efficient way to help improve your overall health and fitness. Even if you can’t see the difference, you’ll most likely FEEL it in your day-to-day.
Read our individual superfood green powder reviews, listed below each green powder product below for a more in-depth look at each of these superfood green drinks.
1. Organifi Green Juice (Editor’s Choice Best Green Superfood Powder)
Organifi Green Juice is a really efficient way to get your daily nutrients and our top choice for the best green superfood powder award. It tastes delicious even when mixed only with water (which is how we take it) and it literally takes 30 seconds to scoop some powder, add 8-16 oz. of water, shake, and drink it.
So it’s obviously a time-saver, but what are the stated health-related benefits of a daily dietary superfood supplement like Organifi Green Juice? Here they are:
- Mental clarity and sustained energy that doesn’t spike like the effects of sugars. This is something that I noticed while taking Green Juice. I think it helps to have a morning ritual that forces you to drink 12 oz. of water when mixed with this superfood powder. Water is so important in our diet so hydrating with Green Juice powder is a bonus.
- Supports your health and gives your body healthy nutrients such as electrolytes in coconut water.
- Reduces stress and reduces frustrations by balancing hormones already within the normal range. I do feel more well rounded during my day to day tasks.
- Supports immune function due to nature’s superfoods that contain vitamins and minerals. I haven’t felt ill during my Green Juice trial but 1 month isn’t a long enough test period to know if it’s helping my immune system for sure.
- Detoxifies your body by supporting the flushing out of toxins.
- Healthy skin. Some studies have shown that some ingredients in Organifi may help promote healthy hair, skin, and nails. I definitely feel like my skin has a better complexion since using Green Juice.
The superfood green juice powder we love is Organifi’s aptly named Green Juice. Our exclusive Organifi coupon code ‘TK15′ will get you 15% OFF your total order when purchased via the link below or this one –> Learn more at Organifi.com
As well as simply having Green Juice as a shake, it’s also a great addition to a smoothie with other ingredients such as water, ice cubes, nuts, and fruit. We chuck all of these into our Nutribullet blender to make a quick smoothie.

2. Athletic Greens (Runner up)
We are continually looking to improve our diet and eat only natural, whole-food, plant-based meals, and this extends to any supplements we take. Athletic Greens is a very tasty fine superfood powder made up of 75 vitamins, minerals, and whole-food sourced ingredients, so I won’t list them all here. But essentially, it is designed to add nutritional value to support key bodily functions such as your immune system, digestion, gut health and energy production, and storage.
Athletic Greens does not contain GMO ingredients, artificial sweeteners, flavors, or colors – and it is 100% vegan. It also doesn’t contain preservatives, which means that it needs to be kept refrigerated and consumed within a relatively short time period.
To some extent, I see the benefits of supplements like Athletic Greens as things I don’t experience – such as not getting colds, not feeling unnecessarily tired and not getting spots. One thing I definitely find when taking Athletic Greens daily is that my digestion is much better than normal. I’ve been trying to work out what causes me to have digestive problems, and so I now know that one (or more) of the Athletic Greens ingredients is something I am lacking in my day-to-day diet.
I have also historically had phases of low-energy. This is usually the precursor to a cold. Since taking the supplement I have not had these low-energy periods or any colds. Who’s to say whether I would have otherwise had these, but I believe the supplement helps, especially when I’m busy or traveling and not eating particularly well.

3. Ladder Superfood Greens (Best For Stress Relief)
Ladder Superfood Greens is my favorite plant-based product from Ladder Nutrition. It has some of the world’s most vitamin and mineral-rich foods to supply your body with powerful nutrients, chosen specifically to fight daily stress, fill gaps in your diet, and protect your overall health.
Ladder’s Superfood Greens provides your body with a concentrated dose of the most essential nutrients that are hard to get in your diet, including magnesium, zinc, B vitamins, and Vitamin D to strengthen your body and improve your overall health from the inside out. It’s not always easy to notice the effects of supplements but with superfood mix drinks like this, I do. I notice clearer skin, improved mood level, consistent energy levels, and the mental benefits of knowing you’re feeding your body essential nutrients that can be hard to find in your daily diet without the help of a supplement like Superfood Greens, for example.
One of the biggest threats to your health is stress. It’s connected to disease, aging, and weakened performance. You can’t always avoid stress but you can reduce it by doing mindful activities, one of my favorite things to do to relieve stress is to go trail running.
In addition to Ladder’s selection of vegetables, they included Rhodiola root, which is a powerful adaptogen backed by studies to support immunity and help keep you healthier even when stress is high.

4. Nested Naturals Super Greens (Amazon #1 Best Seller)
Nested Naturals Super Greens is packed with phytonutrients that help promote healthy energy levels without the crash you get from caffeine, sugar or energy drinks.
Super Greens powder is non-GMO, vegan and 100% certified USDA organic. The blend of fruits and vegetables (including superfoods like kale and acai berry) is ground into a fine powder to give you a potent boost of micronutrients that can be absorbed by the body quickly and easily. There are also enzymes and dairy-free probiotics to help your digestive system absorb the benefits of Super Greens and everything else you eat.
The flavor is fresh and sourced naturally from monk fruit extract which gives the powder a hint of sweetness without any added calories. Like all the superfood powders in this list, you can mix it simply with water (this is how we drink them) or add it to a smoothie, shake or juice for a superfood boost to your day.
Nested Naturals is a socially conscious company from Canada that believes in only using the best, most ethically produced ingredients available, 3rd party testing every batch and donating to charity to make the world a better place. They actually stand behind this pledge with a Lifetime Guarantee, so if you’re not happy with Super Greens, you can email them directly.
5. Amazing Grass Green Superfood (Cheapest Best Superfood Mix)
Amazing Grass Green Superfood powder combines Amazing Grass’ alkalizing farm fresh greens and wholesome fruits and veggies with nutrient-rich superfoods for an enjoyable, fast and efficient way to feel amazing every day.
Green Superfood contains 7 alkalizing farm fresh greens, which is not nearly as many ingredients as Organifi Green juice or Athletic Greens, and a reason why it’s much less expensive. The ingredients are Wheat Grass, Barley Grass, Alfalfa, Spinach, Spirulina, Chlorella, and Broccoli.
It’s certified organic by CCOF, Gluten-Free, Plant-Based, Non-GMO, Kosher, and has no added sugar.
We love that Amazing Grass’ Green Superfood is available in 10 many different flavors which each have a specific function, and it’s so reasonably priced, $49 will get you 100 servings, pretty much 3 months worth.
We recommend mixing Amazing Grass Green Superfood with a fruit smoothy or simply almond milk to make it tastier than only mixing with water.
BONUS: Your Super Super Green Mix
Super Green Mix from Your Super is another great way to incorporate more green veggies into your daily diet. There are 6 ingredients including Wheatgrass (Germany), Barley Grass (Germany), Moringa (Tanzania), Baobab (Senegal), Spirulina (Germany) and Chlorella (Germany) Powder. I love that Your Super shares where they source their ingredients from.
Although Your Super suggest adding this green powder to water as a drinking option, I’d recommend mixing it with a smoothie or almond milk because the taste is very natural with no sweetening added (even natural sweeteners) and as a result, it tastes quite bitter.
Super Green superfood powder is high in chlorophyll and micronutrients such as Vitamin A, K, C, Calcium, Potassium, Folate, and Iron, and each pot has enough for 30 days worth of green goodness.
