The Best Greens Powders of 2024, Dietitian Reviewed

Have you ever seen an ad, an influencer or a health professional talk about greens powders? Today I am reviewing 6 of the most popular greens powders and will taste test each and provide a review about all of them!

I also want to disclose and thank Live It Up for partnering with me to make this possible! Partners make it possible for me to create content that is then free for you to read and watch. My review of each of these greens powders is my own honest opinion and viewpoint as a Registered Dietitian. 

What Is Greens Powder?

A greens powder is a dietary supplement that often includes a powered version of a variety of greens and may also include vitamins, minerals, digestive enzymes, probiotics and more to support your body’s immune system and energy levels. 

The Health Benefits of Greens Powders

While a greens powder is not an equal or ideal swap for actually eating your green vegetables, it can be a wonderful addition to your diet to add in nutrients that can support your optimal health in a way that is easy and accessible. It is estimated that only 1 in 10 adults in the US eat enough fruits and vegetables. Therefore, for some individuals a greens powder can be a great way to fill in nutritional gaps. 

Common Ingredients Found In Greens Powders

A few key ingredients you may see in a greens powder include spirulina, chlorella, wheat grass, barley grass, spinach, broccoli and more. Let’s dive into the health highlights of these!

Spirulina: Spirulina is a microalgae that has a nutritional profile which includes protein, essential amino acids, potassium, iron, magnesium, calcium, and B vitamins; as well as functional plant compounds with antioxidant activity that provide immune support.

Chlorella: Chlorella is also a microalgae containing a variety of nutrients including protein; vitamins B12, folate, D, E, C, and K; along with minerals such as iron, calcium, and magnesium. Chlorella also contains abundant antioxidants which support a healthy immune system.

Wheat Grass: Wheat grass is harvested as a nutritionally dense sprout, containing vitamins E, K, and several B vitamins, along with zinc, magnesium, and potassium. This nutritional grass also contains flavonoids and polyphenols, which have beneficial properties. 

Barley Grass: Barley Grass is harvested as young greens, and includes vitamins A, C, and K; protein; and functional compounds such as antioxidants and polyphenols that play a role in immune support.

Wheat Grass and Barley Grass are both gluten free as they’re harvested from their respective plants prior to their gluten-containing seeds forming.

Spinach: Spinach is rich in vitamins A, C, E, K, and folate, along with minerals zinc, calcium, potassium, magnesium, and phosphorus. It is rich in antioxidants and other beneficial plant compounds.

Broccoli: This cruciferous vegetable is a rich source of vitamins A, C, and K, and minerals calcium, potassium, and iron. Broccoli contains high antioxidant capacity plant compounds, which along with its micronutrient content, help provide immune support.

A greens powder can be a convenient way to consistently consume and benefit from these different types of greens!

Athletic Greens, also known as AG1, is made with 75 ingredients to deliver comprehensive daily nutrition with ingredients that are carefully sourced for absorption, potency, and nutrient density.

At $2.63 per serving AG1 is:

  • No added sugars or artificial sweeteners
  • Contains 7.2 billion CFU probiotics
  • Contains a mushroom complex
  • Made with 45 superfood ingredients
  • Third-party certified for safety
  • AG1 adds several synthetic vitamins and minerals into their formula. I mention this because it is important to be mindful of your overall daily intake of vitamins and minerals from supplements. If you already take a mult-vitamin supplement and / or singular supplements it’s important to pay attention to how much added vitamins and minerals you are consuming in a day to not exceed the upper limit. 
  • AG1 has one flavor – pineapple vanilla

Athletic Greens also has a sweet flavor, which I could smell before I took a taste! It tastes great and I could not taste the intense greens. Personally it took me a little effort to blend the power in water using just a spoon. A hand milk frother, shaker bottle or blender would help the greens blend easily. 


Your Super has a Super Green Mix which provides your daily dose of immunity, energy, and radiance—made exclusively from 6 powerful greens sourced from the most nutrient-dense places on earth. 

At .99 cents per serving Super Green Mix is:

Your Super tastes like a traditional greens powder in that I could taste the flavor of the greens. While this greens powder does not have a sweet flavor, I personally still enjoyed the flavor of this greens powder.

Are Greens Powders Good For You?

As you can see, each greens powder, while similar in nature, can actually really vary in the number of ingredients, if the powder has added vitamins and minerals, probiotics, digestive enzymes, third party testing, the price point and more. 

In summary – all of these greens powders are great! I am not here to say one is the best and all the others are all inferior because they each are great in their own way and do have a lot of overlapping similarities! Because nutrition is not one-size-fits all you may be drawn to a certain greens powder over another based on ingredients, the cost or for personal health reasons. 

It’s also important to keep in mind that “more” in a supplement is not always better. It’s important to know which ingredients are truly supportive for your own health needs and compliment any supplements or medications you currently are taking without any interactions. 

In terms of taste, some of the powders taste good just mixed with water while others are more palatable when added to a smoothie for the addition of fruits or other ingredients blended together.
