How Athletic Greens Work
According to the website, there are many ways that Athletic Greens can help you in your daily life. Those benefits involve your energy levels, overall health, your body, your immunity, and your happiness.
The greens are comprised of 75 different “specialty” ingredients that are all packed into one drink that takes less than 30 seconds to drink. However, the emphasis on how quick the supplement is to take is probably meant to appeal to busy people who don’t have time to spend extra hours dedicated to creating a diet plan.
The active ingredients are divided into multiple categories:
- Alkaline, RAW, Extremely Nutrient-Dense Greens
- Nutrient-Dense, Natural Extracts, Herbs, and Antioxidants
- Pre and Pro Biotics, Naturally Occurring Digestive Enzymes
The greens play a special role in this supplement. Each “green” is a superfood that is included in the recipe. A super food is meant to be able to give you an abundance of nutrients in a single sitting. Ingredients that fall into this category are freeze-dried to preserve their nutrients. Then, they are cold milled, rather than being hot-milled and destroying the enzymes that each ingredient has.
Extracts, Herbs, and Antioxidants
The nutrients of these ingredients comes from high-quality “raw” foods, while reiterates the fact that the ingredients aren’t cooked, only milled.
Pre and Pro Biotics
These ingredients focus on helping your digestive system to be clean and function properly. Due to this effect, you are able to absorb essential nutrients much easier.
Minerals are in every dietary and vitamin supplement. Minerals are responsible for many functions in your body. For instance, magnesium elicits 300 different biochemical reactions alone, which help to keep your body functioning correctly.
There is a specific listing on the label of the Athletic Greens, but the print is only big enough for someone with perfect vision to read on the website.

Using Athletic Greens
The best part of Athletic Greens is the easy and tasty way to get all of the nutrients you need for various vitamins. Each serving comes in a powder. The makers behind the supplement saw that the powder form was chosen over a capsule or tablet to get the maximum benefit out of the serving, without delayed distribution to the rest of the body. If the formula was in a capsule or tablet, you would have to take 16-18 doses for the equivalent benefits.
However, another major benefit for this product is that you don’t have to take any other supplement or multivitamin to supply you with what you need for your daily requirements.
While Athletic Greens doesn’t specifically answer if this product is safe to take while pregnant, they refer you to your physician before beginning the regimen.
