SUPERFOODS – Tony Robbins Green Drink Review
Tony Robbins is a brilliant motivational teacher and a brilliant marketer. I’ve read his books and admire him for what he is.
Pure Energy Greens with MSM is a decent, mid-range superfood drink powder. It contains a total of seven superfoods: barley grass, wheat grass, alfalfa, broccoli, spinach, kelp and MSM (methyl-sufonyl-methane). These are all good superfoods and I appreciate that they are all organic. However, the potencies are lacking. An entire serving is just 2 grams.
You would need to take many servings per day to really enjoy a significant health impact and for the money, there are many better options in the marketplace. For example, Athletic Greens (best tasting green drinks) contains almost 9 grams of superfoods per serving.
SUPERFOODS SCORE: 4.3 out of 10
There’s really nothing to add here that I didn’t say in the Superfoods Panel. There’s only seven ingredients, it’s a proprietary blend so we don’t know how much of each ingredient is in the product, and it is very low potent. Only 2 grams per serving is a very small amount of superfoods.
I do like that there is MSM in the product. Methylsufonylmethane is a sulfur found in plants and is also naturally created by the body. It is excellent for joint health and connective tissue, supports cellular growth and even promotes natural energy.
PEG is not going to harm anyone but with so little ingredients, even with the MSM, it’s certainly nowhere near the nutritional powerhouse of products like the Total Living Drink Greens or Shakeology or even Athletic Greens or Living Fuel Super Greens.
NUTRITIONAL PANEL SCORE: 5.5 out of 10
PEG tastes like grass and has a little bitterness to it probably from the MSM. I’ve been taking grassy, swampy, superfood drinks for so many years, I’ve grown to love the earthy flavor and the grainy texture. I have no problem with the taste of Tony Robbins’ green drink. Many people will, so like I’ve said many times before, try mixing it with fruit juices and fresh fruits and make a health smoothie.
TASTE SCORE: 6.5 out of 10
The value of PEG is a little lacking in my opinion. It is a little over-priced for what’s in it. It is a marketing-driven product and I simply think there are better value options out there.
Each serving of PEG is 2 grams and it’s $69.99 for 140 servings, or $.50 per serving. Compare that to some of the other superfood drinks that I’ve reviewed on this site and you would need to take 20 servings of PEG to equal one serving of some of the top-reviewed products such as the Total Living Drink Greens. If you don’t want a full meal-replacement drink try Patriot Power Greens or Athletic Greens.
VALUE SCORE: 4.1 out of 10
PROS & CONS
- Decent ingredients that are organic
- MSM is a powerhouse nutrient with awesome benefits
- Very low potencies of superfoods
- Does not contain a lot of ingredients (7 total)
- It is very expensive for what you are actually getting
I’m a big fan of Tony Robbins. I’ve read his books and I’ve applied a lot of principals to my life and career. However, Pure Energy Greens with MSM is not a superfood drink product that I would recommend. It is low-potent, overly simple and for the money, there are just a lot of better products in the marketplace.
I tend to avoid health-related products from professional marketing people. Like Kevin Trudeau or Don Lapre and yes, Tony Robbins. They are marketers and want to cash in on the behemoth health and wellness industry. They create products to meet a market demand and they make piles of money. But they are not as genuine as the companies and people that are truly passionate about alternative health and create products that mirror their healthy convictions.
I believe you can find better alternatives than Pure Energy Greens with MSM.
