Organifi Green Juice is a powdered superfood drink that promises to give you plant-based nutrition without requiring you to shop for and prepare fresh ingredients.

The company’s primary goal is to help customers make healthy living a priority through convenient juices and supplements that can substitute for fresh food at their convenience.

Organifi sells multiple products, but we’re going to focus on the powdered Green Juice. Below is our analysis of this product and our verdict on whether it is a smart choice for your health.

Possible Benefits and How to Take It

Organifi Green Juice comes powdered in a shelf-stable cannister. You are meant to dissolve one scoop in water for an instant drink. The company suggests taking one serving in the morning, though you can also time the beverage around your workouts or as a mid-day boost.

The company claims that this organic drink blend hydrates and revitalizes you while naturally balancing your hormones, helping your body deal with the effects of stress, boosting your immune function, and supporting mental clarity.

Though it’s possible to add any ingredients you choose to Organifi, the powder’s intended purpose is to be taken alone.

A single-scoop serving size includes the following nutrients (30 scoops per container):

  • Total Carbohydrate: 6g
  • Protein: 2g
  • Calcium: 31mg
  • Iron: 3mg
  • Sodium: 10mg
  • Alkaline Greens Proprietary Blend: 5.1g
  • Super Food Proprietary Blend: 1.45g

Analysis of Ingredients

All Organifi ingredients are certified organic and non-GMO verified. Though the products (like all supplements) aren’t FDA-approved, they are made within FDA-approved facilities.

Organifi products are manufactured in California. This means the company must comply with Proposition 65 and post a warning that the ingredients in the product might contain enough carcinogens to cause health problems such as cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm.

All California-based companies that sell products with ingredients that are on this list must legally post this warning, and it doesn’t indicate that the supplement is any more dangerous than that of a non-California-based competitor.

Most of these ingredients are contained within two proprietary blends, called the “Alkaline Greens Proprietary Blend” and “Super Food Proprietary Blend.”

What we don’t like about blends like these is that they allow the company not to disclose how much of each ingredient is contained within the powder. This makes it difficult to comment on whether there is enough of the active ingredients to provide the suggested health benefits.

Acknowledging that limitation, let’s look at the nutrition facts for each ingredient:

Moringa

This North Indian tree has long been used in traditional herbal medicines. Almost every part of the tree can be used, though the leaves are most often ground and used as a powder in dietary supplements.

Moringa is high in antioxidants and often considered a wonder food, though you need to consume about a cup of the leaves to get the full benefits. The amount likely contained in a serving of green powdered juice like Organifi Green Juice often makes the nutrient content negligible.

Chlorella

Chlorella is a nutrient-dense form of algae that will purportedly rid your body of toxins and improve your cholesterol levels. This single-celled organism is 50-60% protein and contains a wide range of antioxidants.

Though large doses can provide you with lots of fiber, most supplement serving sizes will contain less than one gram per dose.

There’s also evidence that chlorella will bind to heavy metals to remove them from your body, but most existing studies have only been conducted on animals.

Mint

This fragrant herb is added to Organifi Green Juice to give it a refreshing taste. Even so, the plant has one of the highest antioxidant capacities of any food, and it has stomach-soothing properties that can help prevent gas and indigestion.

Spirulina

Spirulina, another name for blue-green algae, is considered one of the healthiest supplements available.

One tablespoon (7 grams) contains four grams of protein, 21% of your daily copper requirements, and decent amounts of vitamins B1, B2, and B3. However, that’s far more than you’re getting in a serving of green juice.

Beets

When this root vegetable is powdered and added to green juices, its compounds can work to reduce swelling and cholesterol as well as increase your levels of nitric oxide. This affects your blood vessels in ways that potentially improve your blood pressure and potentially improve your exercise capacity.

Matcha Green Tea

This powdered green tea is designed to be dissolved in water and drunk as is. This gives you the full nutritional value of the tea leaves, providing more than 100 times the antioxidants of regular green tea and ten times the nutritional content of regular tea.

Wheatgrass

Popular as an ingredient in green juices, wheatgrass is made from sprouted leaves of the wheat plant. The compound is high in nutrients, especially antioxidants, and one study from 2006 found that wheatgrass successfully reduces oxidative damage done to cells.

However, most research thus far has been conducted on test tube cells or animals, so more studies are needed to verify these benefits for humans.

Ashwagandha

This versatile plant is considered an adaptogen, which means that it helps the body better deal with daily stress. Some people also take it for its purported benefits for arthritis and cognitive abilities.

However, you might need to take up to 600mg a day to experience any benefits, which is likely more than is contained in the 1.45 gram “Super Food Proprietary Blend.”

Turmeric

Turmeric is a spice known for its curcumin content. This compound is an anti-inflammatory agent that shows benefits for relieving the symptoms of arthritis, clogged arteries, and similar conditions.

It’s also been used for centuries to treat digestion problems, and preliminary evidence shows that it might reduce inflammation associated with weight gain.

Key Takeaways

Organifi Green Juice contains a wide variety of plant-based ingredients that promise to deliver profound health benefits. However, our research showed that for most of them, you would need to take a larger serving size than a scoop of Organifi Green Juice to experience the benefits.

And, as these ingredients come in proprietary blends, it’s hard to know what their ratios are in the juice blend. That’s why we suggest you consider buying some of these active ingredients separately if specific ones stand out to you from a health perspective.

So, while some of the ingredients in Organifi Green Juice might provide some mild health benefits, we think it’s unlikely that you’ll experience significant “weight loss, improved focus, balanced hormones, or improved sleep.”

Are There Any Side Effects?

Though there are few side effects associated with Organifi Green Juice’s ingredients individually, you may potentially run into problems from taking them in concentrated form as a green juice.

Extreme juice cleanses are associated with adverse side effects like diarrhea, dizziness, nausea, and fatigue. To fall within this category, though, you would need to drink nothing but green juice for days in a row.

You might also experience stomach problems if you don’t usually eat much produce as your stomach adjusts to the higher fiber content. So long as you stick to Organifi’s recommended serving sizes and have fewer than three servings a day, any stomach issues you experience will likely be temporary.

Will Organifi Green Juice Help You Lose Weight?

Many people who purchase products like Organifi Green Juice do so with the goal of losing weight. Can a green powder really help you meet your weight loss goals?

These drinks tend to be low in calories but high in nutrients. This makes them a viable option for meeting your daily fruit and vegetable intake requirements, but they won’t leave you satiated as a real meal should.

In other words, you might find yourself reaching for a snack soon after finishing a serving of this juice because it is lower in fiber than fresh fruits and vegetables. This might cause you to sabotage your diet plans without meaning to.

Likewise, a 2015 analysis of the effects of chewing on appetite from Physiology and Behavior found that chewing decreases self-reported hunger and increases overall satisfaction and satiety.

So to summarize, taking a green juice drink like Organifi Green Juice will give you nutrients that are essential for good health, but the beverage won’t leave you feeling like you just had a meal, and consequently won’t deter you from compensating with unhealthy choices.

For this reason, it’s best to consider a green powder drink as a supplemental nutritional resource for a healthy diet, rather than a way to curb your cravings.

You’ll fare better in most cases if you reach for whole fruits and vegetables instead. Not only do they give you lots of water, but they contain filling fiber that prevents you from overeating and makes it easier to stick to calorie limitations.

If you want to feel fuller while using Organifi Green Juice, we suggest incorporating it into a smoothie with nutrient-rich ingredients like yogurt, bananas, and possibly protein powder.

Pricing and Return Policy

On the Organifi website, this green juice retails for $69.95 per canister of 30 servings. Three canisters cost $178.38, and six are $299.99. You can also sign up for a subscription program where you will pay $59.46 per canister and receive a new delivery every thirty days.

Shipping costs start at $7.95 per order and increase based on your order size.

All purchases qualify for Organifi’s 100% No-Risk Promise. This means that you can try any product for sixty days and return it, no questions asked, for a full refund minus return shipping costs.

Analysis of Customer Reviews

HighYa reviewers have weighed in on Organifi Green Juice, and the product earned 2.7 stars out of five after more than 50 reviews. Here are some of their key takeaways:

Positive Health Benefits

Many Organifi Green Juice users noticed physical benefits from using this product. Several stated that they used the juice as a caffeine-free way to wake up in the morning, that it kept their digestive system regular, and that it helped them get off gout medication.

Some users noted that green smoothies often tore up their digestive system and left them running to the bathroom all day, but that they felt great with Organifi. Others mentioned that they started feeling the health impacts of the juice a few hours after the first glass and that it reduced their need for a mid-afternoon nap.

Concerned with Cancer Warning

A few reviewers gave Organifi Green Juice a low ranking because of the cancer warning. As we noted earlier, this complies with Proposition 65 and not an indication of the health effects of the ingredients in this juice powder.

Great Taste

Lots of reviewers seem happy with Organifi’s taste, especially compared to other powdered green smoothie brands. Many mentioned that the powder dissolved quickly in water and left a smooth texture. Several stated that they wouldn’t ever switch to a different brand.

Billing and Customer Service Issues

Not all Organifi users seemed to receive the products they ordered. A few reported that they were shipped empty boxes from the company without any products inside.

Others stated that they struggled to get a refund from the company for products that they weren’t happy with. They wrote that Organifi contested their 60-day return policy or stopped responding to messages, leaving them without their refund.

Not Fans of the Taste and Texture

Some reviewers noted that the Organifi Green Drink didn’t blend well in a glass and had a too-sweet taste that was off-putting. Others didn’t like the mint flavor combined with the greens.

Key Takeaways

Overall, these reviews show that users have mixed opinions on Organifi Green Juice. Some think the flavor and benefits are incredible, while others find the drink too sweet, hard to dissolve in a glass, and devoid of health benefits.

We think you will have a better experience with this beverage if you already know that you like powdered green juice drinks.

The Bottom Line: Should You Try Organifi Green Juice?

Oraganifi Green Juice contains promising ingredients with high nutritional content. Many have been the focus of clinical studies that prove their efficacy.

However, these ingredients come in questionable concentrations, and you will need to take far more than a serving of Organifi to potentially match the results from these studies.

Another concern is that a powdered green juice like Organifi is lower in fiber than the nutritional equivalent of fresh produce, which means that it won’t leave you feeling as full after a serving. That’s not ideal for weight loss.

While it’s almost always better to choose real fruits and vegetables instead, a drink like Organifi Green Juice can help you fill in the gaps on days when you know you won’t meet your daily requirements.

  • Great but pricey

    • By John R.,
    • New York,
    • Jan 17, 2020
    • Verified Reviewer

    I've been taking it every morning, one scoop a day, for about three weeks now. I got it for its nutrient value and so far I have to say I've noticed a greater energy level, but overall, not in that speedy spike that you get from sugar or caffeine. I'm 56 years old and I don't have any chronic health problems. I eat a varied diet, mostly plant-based with about 5% animal-based foods. I've no allergies except a gluten intolerance and a slight lactose issue. I use it as a supplement to a varied, pretty high fiber diet. I find myself eating less since I've started taking it and I've lost a few pounds. I've not been craving sugar as much, either, especially after I eat or after a shift as a server in a very busy restaurant. I think it's pricey, though. My next purchase will be the Green/Gold bundle. Sure beats the hassle of shopping for all that produce then washing and juicing it.

  • DISAPPOINTED CUSTOMER

    • By Terrie F.,
    • Lahaina, HI,

    I am very DISAPPOINTED with this company. They never answer their phones and they don't reply to emails. I have been trying to cancel my orders for the last 4 months but no luck. They even sent me double my orders and billed me for both. I have disputed their charges with my bank. And here we are ONCE AGAIN, they are still sending me their products, regardless of all the emails I sent to STOP sending me this product. I am once again on the phone with my credit card company to have them help. So frustrated with this company. I HATE being taken advantage of. Shame on you Organifi!

  • Dissatisfied with only the complete chocolate protein shake

    • By Oby O.,
    • Texas,
    • Nov 4, 2019
    • Verified Reviewer

    The red juice and green juice tastes good and I like it, but the complete protein was a total waste of money for me. I couldn't swallow it, it tastes horrible and the sweetener stays in my tastebuds for long, it does not dissolve easily and causes me stomach discomfort. I really don't recommend the complete protein to anyone, apart from that, the other product is good.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend


  • Works great for my gout

    I’ve been taking this stuff for two years now. It truly is great tasting because I like mint. I thought it mixed pretty well in my glass of water stirred vigorously with a fork, which is how I took it most mornings first thing. It wasn’t like coffee, but I felt like it got my mind and body started each morning before work. My gut issues are under control. It kept my gout under control where I was able to indulge a bit more in foods I used to have to completely avoid. It keeps me off gout medication in combination with a semi-healthy diet. I think the customer service issues people speak of are due to the fact the product is great, and the company is struggling with the volume of demand increase which is normal for a fast-growing company. However, I have never experienced these issues except for a long hold time when I wanted to update my charge card one time, which I felt was normal. Love the product. Love the honesty of the company. The disclaimer regarding the cancer thing is in full explanation on the food administration website, and should actually be on most products in the world. The product is very legit in my opinion.

  • Big surprise...Organifi has an "F" rating with BBB

    • By Susan A.,
    • New York,
    • Oct 13, 2019
    • Verified Reviewer

    After waiting weeks for a refund (which still hasn't come), I decided to see what review sites and the BBB had to say. I wish I'd checked first before ordering their awful (chocolate) protein powder. My first issue with the protein powder is the high amount of sodium (22% for a 2000 calorie diet), the second is the horrible aftertaste which lingers for hours, the third being it upset my stomach. It is grossly overpriced when you can get the same ingredients from a product on your grocer's shelf for almost half the price. Oh, and I was CHARGED TAX. There is NO tax on a food or wellness product! I have now been waiting for weeks for my refund and am about to file a claim with my credit card as I wouldn't be surprised if the only response I hear from them is that it's past the 60-day return window because they have taken so long to respond to my return claim.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend


  • Taste is NOT good

    • By Kenit K.,
    • Canyon, TX,
    • Sep 6, 2019
    • Verified Reviewer

    Just received this product, I haven't used it long enough to report on how it makes me feel, but I can tell you that it doesn't mix easily and the taste is pretty bad, unlike the claims of the catchy YouTube ad claiming "easy mixing and great taste." I'm a health nut and I will drink just about anything if it will make me healthier but the sickeningly sweet mint taste of this product is very disappointing. OMG, I just noticed Cadmium warning on the side of the container. I've been duped!

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend


  • Good

    • By Bigaboo C.,
    • Viewmont, NC,
    • Sep 2, 2019
    • Verified Reviewer

    I order Organifi, I have it in my house right now. I have never had a problem with the company. You are not suckered to have the product auto-shipped. You have an option to order the products one time from the website and you can certainly order the products one time on Amazon. The warning on the product about cancer is a common warning - it is on a US government website. The cancer-causing agent in the green juice is found in all greens you eat anywhere grown in the whole world. Most vegetables have this mineral that causes this potential cancer risk, but what can hurt you is if the mineral content is very very high. In order to avoid this cancer risk would be not to eat any vegetables at all that is grown out of the ground. You cannot avoid this risk, if you want to eat veggies. I have read the US government website.

    I have only had a problem with the green juice mixing well with the water, but all the green juices that I have bought have had the same issue on not perfectly mixing - the cost of the green juice is comparable to what I have paid for the similar products at Vitamin World. Sometimes Vitamin World does a really good sale and you can get juiced greens or superfoods cheaper than organifi. Trust me when I say juiced green mix works better in a smoothie than using frozen kale - it is smoother than chewy. Organifi's products taste awesome. For years I have had different organic juiced greens and fresh green smoothies. If you like mint, you will like Organifi juiced greens. After trying Organifi, I have never gone back to anything else - the price is worth it. With Organifi, I do not have loose stools and too many trips to the bathroom to poop and it does not tear up my stomach or digestive tract with pain or gas- and the taste is better than anything else I have tried. Other juiced greens and superfoods have done this to me every time that I have used them. I love it and recommend this product to others.

    If you have an overbearing salesperson, tell them to stop or ask for someone else. To me the price is worth it. It is just a supplement and it will not make you a perfect body and full of energy if you do not exercise, lack of exercise will make you tired. You can drink tons of coffee, and eat perfect and still be tired if you do not exercise and get plenty of sleep. There is no magic pill or stimulate that will make you lose weight or have energy if you do not take care of your body overall. It takes a combination of everything to have energy when you use a supplement and you have to make sure nothing is wrong with your body also that could be causing you to be tired.

  • Great product!

    • By Michael L.,

    • Verified Reviewer

    I have used many green powder supplements and this is a good one! Every supplement I have used has had some positive effect but this one has had the best effect so far. More energy and less soreness. I don't understand why folks are giving a bad rating when reviewing a product because they had shipping issues? If the product works then give the product the review it deserves and add in the notes your dissatisfaction with company logistics and or customer service. We only live once finding a good product is way more important to me than losing shipping money.

    Don't buy from these people, they lie and are very hard to contact on the phone. Read the fine print on the side of the container of the green juice - Warning, this product can expose you to chemicals, including Cadmium, which is known to the State of California to CAUSE cancer, this is in fine print on the Green Juice bottle.

  • Terribly dissatisfied

    • By Ron G.,
    • Pasco, FL,
    • Jun 18, 2019
    • Verified Reviewer

    I bought the package that contained the protein, green and red powders. I thought the taste of both the green and red powders was disgusting. The protein powder wouldn’t dissolve well, making it hard to drink. Therefore, I decided to try and return the entire package for a refund. That’s when I found out how this company treats dissatisfied customers. I tried repeatedly to contact customer service and selected option #1, which is to talk to someone about returning the products. After doing that, I was left on hold for over an hour! I finally relented and opted to receive a "call back." The system would not accept my phone number. After three (3) attempts, it cut me off! I was amazed by all of this. It was certainly no problem to order the Organifi powders which are advertised with a simple money back guarantee! So, I’m out over $200! That’s an expensive and tough lesson to learn! I’d recommend everyone really consider what I’ve gone through before doing business with Organifi. There are other similar companies offering these types of supplements. It cost me over $215 to learn!

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend


  • Overall positive from a heavy user

    • By Kimi S.,
    • Tennessee,
    • Jun 17, 2019
    • Verified Reviewer

    I started buying their products last summer and have been drinking the green and red juices daily as I mix up 2 pitchers and keep them going in the frig constantly. They are my go-to fluid. I also use the yellow juice in my nut or soy milks for my quinoa puff cereal or smoothie dessert quite often. I use other protein powders and have incorporated these supplements to boost. I am a vegetarian/vegan/raw food eater and love to rotate and stay flexible. I am a disabled veteran dealing with autoimmune disease X 28 years with nearly every joint fused or replaced over time and am on a hardcore immune suppression so need all the help I can get. I have tried many products over the years and am pretty happy with these products so far. I have also had issues with the auto ship and communicating with customer service but realize it's a small company working out the kinks and growing. Recently received a letter and new products in apology for the crap customer service and find I really like the new immune drink with reishi and flavored orange so will incorporate a third pitcher for rotation. It definitely mixes well but does not stay dissolved as advertised but tolerate that and it's freakin expensive. So far its worth the investment in convenience and supplementing whole plant food nutrition.

    Also, didn't enjoy the aggressive marketing ploy in the guise of "health coach" selling me a product I was already buying. I have gone through 9 tubs of each flavor so far and about to order more unless I can discover what's behind the negative reviews asserting dangerous ingredients - not sure what that's about and will investigate the claims. Definitely not experiencing anything scam-like but know the frustration behind lack of communication with customer service. Hoping this improves with growth. The calling to cancel an autoship and not being able to get through was annoying so hopefully all the feedback will be utilized for improving. As far as how it makes me feel - more energy or less inflammation etc., it's very hard to discern when dealing with chronic illness. Doesn't make my body respond negatively and am well hydrated. And happy with the taste and the monk fruit sweeteners. Giving it 5 stars as I do think it's great and I recommend it but be aware of dysfunctional customer service and annoying marketing.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
