Re: Super Greens by Perricone

I eat fresh organic broccoli or brussel sprouts almost every day along with green leafy salads. I think this is a good idea for people who don’t. They did mentioned this product is sweetened with Stevia which I cannot stand. Andrew Lessman sells a very good Green Complex supplement that contains all of the ingredients listed in this product

Re: Super Greens by Perricone

I am a health care professional. no, not a Dr like Dr. Perricone. However, I must warn people about the Super Greens. Dark green vegetable are high in vitamin K and are dangerous to people taking the blood thinner coumadin. vitamin K counteracts the blood thinning properties of the meds.  Dark greens are high in potassium. Potassium is dangerous to someone who has compromised kidney fincution. Please contact your doctor before using this product.

For that price I want it to be organic, which it is not. 


@SilleeMee  Hi ...  I'm open to suggestions.  Do you have an organic product that tastes good, that you can recommend?  Thanks.


@nyc1 

 

I use Lindberg Organic Greens and Reds--two separate products.  Around $20 for a 30 day supply.

@mandylily  most people don't realize how dangerous too high a level of potassium in your system can be.   

I really love this product but am now looking into what they use as a filler.  I just went onto their website and sent them an email about it.

 

WHERE do you get Lindberg greens/reds?  It's not very available.  Thanks.

@geezerette  THANK YOU MUCH.   I'll look into both.

I just went onto the Perricone website and asked them about the filler they are using in this,  maltodextrin.   It's cheap to use and can spike your blood sugar.  I love the product but am disappointed and not happy about that.

Directiobs day NOT TO MIX WITH COLD WATER. Upon reading ingredients, it’s clear why. There are additives of various gums that can thicken and cause stomach distress.

I did buy the Perricone Super Greens once before. But I returned them because i did not care for the sour taste. 


Same for me.

Directions say NOT TO MIX WITH COLD WATER. Upon reading ingredients, it’s clear why. There are additives of gums that can thicken in cold water. Theee gums can cause stomach distress. EDIT TO CORRECT THIS. WRITTEN DIRECTIONS ON QVC WEBSITE SAY NOT TO MIX WITH HOT WATER.

During the presentations they say COLD or hot, and I've never had a problem with either clumping or stomach distress.  Thanks for the heads up however.

Re: Super Greens by Perricone

I don't care for Stevia at all, but the bigger questions is why does this need a sweetener??? american food is overloaded on the sweet tastes
