Usually at this time of year I am off home to New Zealand. It’s my wonderful vitamin D enriched escape from the cold European Winter. Not to mention of course great to spend time with my Mum and my good friends who have known me since ever.
This year, thanks to COVID 19 everything looks a little different. It’s times like these with all the uncertainty and risk of infection ever increasing that it’s even more important to take care of our body’s. Ensure we stay fit and have the necessary vitamins and minerals in our body’s to stay healthy.
Given all of the above you can imagine how excited I was when contacted by Athletic Greens to test their especially formula of 75 superfoods, vitamins, minerals, probiotics and more.
I love the fact that the formula was founded by Chris a fellow Kiwi. The idea stemmed from his own health challenges. Over 10 years of research with the help of doctors, naturopaths and nutritionists has gone into creating Athletic Greens. It is said to be the highest efficiency and nutritionally complete supplement on the planet

Athletic greens – A Secret Tip to Staying Strong Over Winter – The Honest Review!
Benefits of Athletic Greens:
- Increases Energy
- Supports Recovery
- Improves Immunity
- Helps digestion
Athletic Greens is perfect for….
People who simply want to strengthen their daily nutritional needs
To encourage a healthy gut and nutrient absorption
If you travel frequently and struggle to eat well on the road
When you just don’t feel as energetic as you used to
You’re an athlete seeking enhanced performance
As excited as I was to try Athletic Greens, opening the package proved to be a bit of a surprise. Inside the packet was a very fine moss green powder. Fortunately the vanilla smell was pleasant.
Following instructions carefully I made my first drink. My hubby screwed his nose up. Saying “rather you than me”… I took one sip and then thought, nope sorry I am not doing this to myself! At this stage I would like to point out that I have been a fussy eater my entire life (ask my Mum), so this really was a big ask!
Not one to give up easily however I decided to do a little research. Reading a few reviews on the internet and then asking round to see if anyone had any Athletic greens or supplement experience.
First port of call a dear friends husband who owns his own gym. He knew Athletic Greens well, had been drinking it daily for years and thought it was a great product.
Next a neighbour of mine who is an ex female body builder champion. She became super excited telling me how lucky I was to get the opportunity to try Athletic Greens. She had never heard of it before but had already been taking a similar supplement for years.
I made her enjoy a full glass of Athletic Greens with me. This is when I drank my first full glass. Knowing that it really was good for me based on information I had gotten from a friend I trusted put a whole different light on things.
Note, I purposefully drink Athletic Greens out of a wine glass to make a real celebration out of the daily ritual.
Compared to similar products on the market Athletic Greens has a much more pleasant taste and consistency. It has the added benefit from others that you can, (provided you have shaken it properly first), sip it slowly like a cocktail.
Taking Athletic Greens in the morning really does make you feel fresh and full of energy to start the day. It is a super easy way of making sure your body gets all it’s necessary nutrients especially during these cold winter months.
I love the fact that on the website you can really see each and every ingredient – nothing is hidden. You can also see the benefits of each ingredient – super interesting. Plus Athletic Greens is NSF certified – this is an exhaustive process and makes me personally feel so much more confident about taking it.
Personally I honestly believe it is a great thing for all of us to take right now and help us get through winter healthy and happy despite the current pandemic around us
Ok, not quite the best body builder yet… but give me time – smile!
