This Heart Greens review will give us a much more in depth understanding into a superfood supplement which has many online health forums buzzing. Heart Greens is produced by a company called Human Power of N. With a cool name like “Human Power of N,” it is hard not to expect the moon from this superfood combination!
Heart Greens provides a daily punch of kale and spinach and touts itself as a superfood that contributes to healthy blood pressure, healthy circulation and nitric oxide production. Nitric Oxide is a strong vasodilator that relaxes the arteries. This means improved circulation and blood pressure.

Spinach: Spinach is one of the most powerful superfoods on earth. Spinach would be the most powerful superfood on Mars as well, if it weren’t for a lack of water and oxygen and sunlight. In other words, it takes a direct act of God to contain the greatness of spinach in our universe.
Spinach is a wonderful source of Niacin, Zinc, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Vitamin B6, Folate and Calcium. Have enough spinach on hand and you could survive years after the collapse of society (though spinach can’t yet verbalize and converse, so you’d probably be rather lonely). Getting enough spinach in your diet means infusing your body and mind with a powerful health promoter. Putting spinach in your diet is a no-brainer.
Kale: It isn’t just hippie chips, kale is also a real live superfood plant that can change the game when it comes to your health. In fairness to the hippies who make chips with it, it is rather difficult to eat. Kale is a tough plant. Using a supplement to get your kale on is a great strategy. Kale’s nutritional profile is similar enough to spinach that I don’t see a need to relist it all.
Wheat Grass: Great for fiber and a good source for protein and potassium.
Barley Grass: Potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron, copper, phosphorus and B vitamins are among the many benefits to this green grass.
Inulin: This is considered a prebiotic fiber. Prebiotics are an awesome way to feed the good bacteria in your stomach. Many studies show that prebiotics can positively help improve mood. And let’s be honest, most of us could use an improvement in our mood!
Fiber: 1 gram per every 5 gram serving size ranks amongst average numbers. It is decent, but nothing to write home about. Although, if you are writing home about fiber, you might have some unresolved issues beyond the scope of this review.
Stevia: This natural sweetener helps sweeten the superfood drink without compromising the carbohydrate count. This is used as a natural alternative to sugar. Stevia can illicit an insulin response in some people. Are you one of them? If you drink or eat items which contain stevia and feel drowsy an hour or two following, you might be one of them. Otherwise, drink on!
Monk Fruit Extract: Like stevia, this one is used as an alternative to sugar. Many diabetics rely on it to sweeten food and drink items that would otherwise use sugar.
Natural Lemon Flavor: The flavor profile of Heart Greens is lemony due to this natural flavor infusion.
Heart Greens has a lemony, sweet taste profile that does a good job at distancing the superfood drink from an earthy green taste. I actually really enjoy the taste of spinach and kale, which are both the predominant driving factors in the taste of this supplement, but for many, that’s a bit difficult to endure.
Heart Greens does a good job and infusing lemon, stevia and monk fruit extract to build a flavor profile which definitely taste “real.” And what I mean by that is, some green supplement providers attempt to conceal the plant based taste by overwhelming the drink with sweetness. This is the same as when you go into an old person’s home and it smells like Glade covering up old cats tangled in yarn and Cream of Wheat.
You smell Glade, but you know the truth and the truth hurts. The lemon does a really good job at giving a slight tangy tinge to the profile while the two sweeteners neutralize the acidic bitter lemon and guide the taste to something I’d classify as pretty fun to drink.
I am never a fan of a supplement drink which taste like sweetener was used to conceal the underbelly of a mineral, earthy experience. Heart Greens achieves that in spades.
And this is where the review’s honeymoon phase with Heart Greens finds an end. To be blatantly honest, the value here simply isn’t very good. The drink possesses five legitimate superfoods, but all in smaller doses. The drink sells you on increasing Nitric Oxide as a way to help with heart health and blood pressure, but there really are many supplements which could do this with greater ease and for less cost. I think Human Power of N might be growing their spinach and kale at Nordstroms. It just shouldn’t cost this much.
At $44.95 for 30 servings, you are looking at about $1.50 per serving size. The serving sizes are 5 grams, or 18 calorie shots. That’s just not much at all. It almost feels a bit too cold and calculating on the part of Human Power of N the way they short change us on value.
The product does deliver what it says, so if you don’t mind overpaying, you can expect to receive some benefits. And if you are someone who doesn’t mind overpaying, please contact me following the review as I have a really cool Bell Biv Devoe ‘Poison’ cassette tape I’d like to sell you. This classic R&B album, which features the hippest New Edition talent exodus, can be played at house parties and in old Dodge Shadows which still have a refined player system and audio deck. It is available for only three more days at the low, low price of $299.99.
PROS & CONS
- Has spinach and kale.
- A good source to get a bit more fiber.
- The taste profile is pretty good, you really can’t tell it is covering up the earthy greens.
- The company that owns the product has a super cool name.
- Contains a prebiotic, which helps feed the good bacteria in your stomach.
- Incredibly overpriced for what you get.
- Low amounts of the advertised greens found in the supplement.
- Relies heavily on alternative sugars, such as stevia, which don’t always work well with everyone.
There is nothing inherently terrible about this supplement other than the fact that my best description is “there is nothing inherently terrible about this supplement.” The low nutritional value in exchange for what you pay makes this a must-pass supplement in my eyes. There are just many more lower cost, higher nutritional potency options out there.
Nitric Oxide production contributes to a healthy heart (managed blood pressure), but you can find plenty of other superfood supplements at lower costs that would serve the same purpose.
The additional prebiotic via inulin serves a wonderful purpose to a great many people who likely don’t get enough of this type fiber. The taste is pretty good for those who have struggled to accept green superfood supplements into their lives. And of course, like many powdered supplements, it is quite easy to use.
