    Best Greens powder supplement?


    I've read about Trader Joes however this seems to be a supermarket only available in certain areas. I live in South Florida and was wondering what people who have tried different variations of greens powders are the best types..
    I'm new to this supplement but have noticed I get 1-2 servings of vegies a day, but 3-4 of fruits and wanted to increase this with something like these supplements.

    I've found this, which is VERY expensive but the ingredient list seems second to none.. any thoughts?

    Again, I don't know what exactly i want in a product like this.. This one says it has a 12,000 ORAC value lab certified ( I know ORAC is what I want in this type of supp seeing as it is the radical scavenging capacity, but ingredient wise I know nothing of what is best) Any info would be awesome, maybe some sites you guys know of or something, all I've been using is pub med for the documented benefits.

    CL Oximega. Buy it. It's a great profile, but there are other great ones to be found; what differentiates CL Oximega is that it has the kick ass ingredients, AND is without question the best tasting greens product around. I promise you that (I've tried many). The kit has 60 days of greens and certified pure fish oil, or 30 days if you double dose. it's delicious! I also use the trader joes greens (its easy to find, cheap, and I have lots of fish oil), it has an orac value of 8000 per serving, but it isn't delicious by any stretch, though it isn't intolerable.

    Probably Garden of Life, Perfect Food, RAW Organic Green Super Food.. Ingredient Info at i47 dot tinypic dot com/v7czfs.jpg

    There are a lot better greens supplements out there than those marketed for this crowd.

    Words you rarely see, but are associated with this product:

    * Raw
    * Vegan
    * Gluten Free
    * Dairy Free
    * Soy Free
    * No Fillers, Added Sugars or Herbs
    * No Isolates or Synthetic Chemicals
