First heard about it from Tim Ferris, but some other folks on podcasts I listen to have also mentioned.

Just curious to know if anyone can report any benefits before I consider it.

Increased energy? Increased fat loss? Better sleep? etc...

Yes I have been using Athletic Greens for almost 2 years now and has really helped me in Competinion, Energy levels and recovery. I would recommend Ahletic Greens. I have tried many diferent Green Products and AG and Onnit's ENG are by far the best tasting and quality products I have found.

Good Luck!

Here is the link to it https://www.athleticgreens.com/v4/ It's basically a supplement in powder form containing extracts of a lot of vegetables and fruits so you get all the vitamins and antioxidants from those things in an easy to drink form... A lot of reported benefits.. but all anecdotal and from their testimonials.. thats why I'm curious as to what unbiased people have to say.

I did try athletic greens and I did notice that I had a slight increase in energy while taking it. Although I did notice a change in energy from this product, I felt the same increase of energy when I switched to a paleo diet and was on it for a few weeks. I thought about using athletic greens and doing the paleo diet together but I thought athletic greens had such a bad taste that I couldn't bring myself to order another container of the stuff.

If you're really interested, there's a review that compared athletic greens against green vibrance, amazing grass and vitamineral greens, here's the link: athletic greens review. There's also a short discussion about some of the complaints here.

I guess their marketing's kinda screwed up, but the product itself seems ok. I do wonder if Tim's got vested interest in the company tho

seriously I cannot believe how people are sucked into an offer of a magic bullet. This is a quote from their advert,

I desperately wanted to get rid of this excess belly fat and I thought that by taking Athletic Greens, doing a little bit of exercise each day – I could start to go into fat burning” mode.

Note,,,,,"a little bit of exercise each day" at this stage most people are not doing any exercise and would benefit just from its inclusion.

"I COULD start to go into fat burning mode" this would be as a result of the exercise.

As for the ingredients,, people,, just eat real veggies,,,at least 5 portions of real fruit and veg a day,, it really is that simple. The ingredients here have been processed to hell and back,, and we know that is not good. Save your selves some money,, do your self a favour,,, eat better and go for some brisk walks.

See,,,, I didnt even charge u some stupid amount of money for that advice,, it was free.

Any halfway decent greens product shouldgive you more energy. That's just fact being as they mostly consist of fruits/veggies. I have to say though, that Nanogreens is by far and away the cleanest, purest, and most effective greens product on the market. 55 all natural ingredients, of which 70% are organic! Why settle for products that try to auto charge large sums of money every month or deal with multi-level marketing. Ugh, no thanks! Don't just take my word for it, see for yourself. Do some research. When you want to order go to Nanogreens Or call 877-772-4362. Tell them J.R. sent you for 10% off! @fredly @Xucchini @pmhunter1900 @Fang @Tony S @Melissa 24 @Community

Most trial periods last 30 days so that's where they get you. The trial period last 21 days and does not show you that unless you read the fine print. They will charge $97 on the 22nd day and if you choose to continue you will be billed monthly for $97 + shipping.

This product is like any other green super food supplement. Don't waste your money because you can buy the same, if not better products with the same or similar ingredients from Whole Foods from $20 upwards to $50.

Athletic Greens WILL charge your credit card the full $97 plus shipping so buyer beware! When you try to raise the issue with them, they bring up all of the fine print. Don't be suckered into buying with them. I did! Feel like such a loser...(Big L on my forehead) for buying into this scam. Look on their website. When you look at their testimonials, there is no place for the normal "joe" to post a comment. What does that tell you? These are all fake comments. Trust me when I tell you....plus the product tastes like pond scum. I am not upset with them, I'm upset at myself for falling for this scam!

@ fredly, @ Melissa, @tony A buddy of mine had a similar terrible experience with AG. I found a great company out of California who puts their money where their mouth is so to speak! Patented technology that gives 100% absorption, all natural to boot! www.biopharmasci.com/DynamicTouch

I got sucked into doing a trial for the initial package of athletic greens. I was not home when the package arrived, but when I did arrive back home, I noticed that AG had already billed my card for $100! Boy was I pissed beyond belief. To add insult to injury, this package was lost in a move and I never even had a chance to try it. But I sent an email to AG immediately to cancel this overpriced product thinking that would be the end of it. Then to my surprise, I see today that I have been billed a second time for $100. Talk about being red in the face and ready to fight a bull, I was not a very happy camper. So I sent another email to AG, I am calling my bank to cancel this charge, and I will be calling them again tomorrow to vent my rage. This is fraud and deceit in the worst form.....just so unbelievable, and yet, it is all hidden by all the nice marketing hype and nice pictures. What a joke! People, go elsewhere to find your greens...you will be much happier!!!

Athletic Greens advertises a "Risk Free" 21 day trial - with clear suggestions that you only need to pay $9.00 shipping and handling to try the product - HOWEVER read the fine print, they will withhold over $100 from your account and if you do not cancel you will be billed the full product price, plus the shipping and handling. THIS PRODUCT is no better than many other green products, however much higher in price and they use deceptive marketing techniques to suck people into paying their over charge. DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT TO PROTEST THIS DECEPTIVE MARKETING TECHNIQUE.

Greens are essential to the diet and whether you buy them in powder form or make green smoothies you should find a way to incorporate them into your diet.

I take (and sell) JuicePlus, which has similar fruit and vegetable powders in a capsule form, and I love it. Way more energy and I get sick much less often.

While I haven't tried the brand Athletic Greens, I've used a couple other greens powders with similar ingredient profiles and continue to pay a premium to include them in my diet. I've definitely noticed benefits: increased steadiness of energy, but more so is a clearer, cleaner feeling and improvements in mood - both especially in the mornings - I tend to be a cranky don't talk to me before 10am person, but greens powders upon waking in lemon water is addictive for its perceived benefits to me :)
