Dr. Schulze’s Superfood Plus Review

Dr. Schulze's Superfood Plus Review

Dr. Schulze’s SuperFood Plus (DSSP) has the distinction of being one of the oldest superfood products. It was launched in 1979, a time when the term “superfood” was unheard of.  It is a blend of approximately 18 ingredients, all of which are superb in terms of the health benefits to the body. This Dr. Schulze’s Superfood Plus review will hopefully provide the facts that you need in order to decide whether it is right for you.

DSSP is probably the most well known product in the “superfood product” category. Partly because of its’ firmly established history in the marketplace and partly because it is a very good product –for what it is.


Product Name: Dr. Schulze’s SuperFood Plus

Company Name: American Botanical Pharmacy

Website: www.herbdoc.com

Owner(s): Dr. Richard Schulze

Product Description: Whole food, herbal, vitamin and mineral product.

Price: $38

Rating: 8.3 out of 10


DSSP’s superfood panel includes a very good variety of algae and grasses. The algae include Spirulina, Chlorella, and Blue-Green Algae. Algae’s, especially Spirulina, are rich in proteins and Chlorophyll. Spirulina also contains the essential fatty acids. Overall algae is among the most nutrient-dense substances there is.

Additionally, DSSP contains Wheat, Barley and Alfalfa grasses, all excellent ingredients that are loaded with nutrients and health benefits.  Beet, Spinach, Dulse (a seaweed), Acerola Cherry, Rose Hips, Orange & Lemon peels and Palm Fruit, round out the formula nicely.

DSSP is a nutrient-loaded superfood powder formula that has long been established as an industry leader.

SUPERFOODS SCORE: 9.7 out of 10



Dr. Schulze’s Superfood Plus is an excellent product, keeping in mind, that it’s just a superfood formula. There are no enzymes, added protein, antioxidants, probiotics etc. Again, this does not make it a bad product. It has excellent nutrients that are extremely healthy and it’s manufactured with impeccable standards. (Dr. Schulze manufactures the product in his own facility.) My point is this is a one-dimensional product and that is fine so long as you’re not trying to compare it with something like Living Fuel Super Greens or even to some of the mid-range products like Living Green Supremefood or Green Vibrance.

So if you want to just take superfoods and nothing else, this is an excellent choice.



The good news: DSSP is loaded with algae that have tremendous benefits. More good news: DSSP is loaded with nutrient-dense grasses. The bad news: these don’t make for a great taste. It tastes earthy and not unlike pond-water. But heck, algae grow in ponds and lakes.

This is pure superfood greens and it tastes like it. You can also taste the yeast that makes up the base.

Mix it in a health smoothie with organic yogurt, juices, fresh fruit and you can definitely overcome the taste.

TASTE SCORE: 7.2 out of 10


The value of DSSP is a little tricky because it’s a very simple superfood formula. It doesn’t have a lot of the other nutrients and nutrition panels that other superfood drinks have. According to the label it says that a serving size is two tablespoons. The jar is 14 ounces. Two tablespoons equals 1 ounce. So even though the website says that a 14 ounce jar is a 1-month supply, if you are taking two tablespoons daily it’s going to be a two-week supply. (I hate it when that happens.)

So at $38 per jar you’re looking at $2.75 per serving. Frankly, for that money you would do better with Living Green Supreme Food or for a meal replacement Shakeology.

VALUE SCORE: 8.2 out of 10



  • Very high-quality product with a 35+ year track record
  • Exceptional superfood panel with quality ingredients
  • Manufactured in Dr. Schulze’s own facility and maintaining superb standards
  • A simple but potent formula at a doable price-point


  • Very pungent taste, earthy and even swampy
  • Does not include any other nutrients except the superfood greens and algae
  • When broken down to a cost-per-serving, does not contain the value of other products


Look, Dr. Schulze’s SuperFood Plus is a good product. It’s made from brilliant supefoods that will deliver incredibly nutrient-dense calories to the body. And, the way they manufacture it is superb. No heat treatments and it’s made by Dr. Schulze’s own facility. This lends a lot of credibility to the product. Furthermore, it’s been around since the Ford administration. Again, lots of credibility. I like Dr. Schulze. He’s passionate, he seems to be the genuine article.

SFD OVERALL RATING: 8.3 out of 10

    The value section above, states in part:
    “Two tablespoons equals 1 ounce. So even though the website says that a 14 ounce jar is a 1-month supply, if you are taking two tablespoons daily it’s going to be a two-week supply.”

    It seems there is confusion here between volume and weight. The two tablespoons are a measure of volume, and the 14 ounces is a measure of weight. Two tablespoons of water do weight about 1 ounce. However, as In the case of most dry powders, the weight of two tablespoons of Superfood is much less, about 13 grams, a little less than half an ounce.

    As someone who has consumed two tablespoons of this superfood nearly every day for the past twelve or so years, I can tell you that each jar lasts about one month.

      I agree that a jar last a month as I have also taken SuperFood for a number of years.wondering if you have ever had a reaction as in your skin turning burning red?The last couple days I took three Tbls instead of the recommended two because ive been feeling poorly..thought I needed the extra boost.soo hmmm ??wondering if that was not a such a good thing to do.Any comments?

        think the skin burning could be due to the ‘niacin flush’ effect when you up the dose.

    when i look at the label on the back it looks like synthetic vitamins have been added thats a shame, but maybe thats why the label doesnt say that it is 100% wholefood, theres B vitamins on the label like folic acid which are chemical not food or am i missing something
