Product review

I was not given product for this blog post, I just love this product- although if they wanted to send me some as a thank you I wouldn't turn it away) :-)

I am NOT a "health" person. I roll my eyes at people who say this vitamin or that will probably help me with my Lupus. Mainly cause I have tried it all. But I had confided in a friend of mine about my struggle to loose weight and how I desperatly wanted something I could have for breakfast that was fast and easy to do. She told me about this drink... I am a PICKY eater, so I was skeptical. She gave me a three day sample and I actually was able to drink it.

The first is a mix called "Green Vibrance"

Green Vibrance is the original Concentrated Green Superfood. It's a nutritional powerhouse that improves energy and endurance, strengthens immunity, improves digestion and circulation. Green Vibrance has more nutrient density than any other green-food product on the market. It contains 58 certified organic, concetrated foods and extracts, all of the highest quality, along with an industry-leading 18 billion probiotics per serving. (From the Amazon website)

I also mix it with "Rainbow Vibrance"

Rainbow Vibrance red, yellow, blue & green fresh fruits and vegetables two-thirds of a pound of fresh fruits and vegetables concentrated in each scoop. Equivalent to 4½ servings of fruits and vegetables 3,974 ORAC units per serving; Gluten free. We do not live in a monochromatic world. In the realm of nutritional supplementation, red drinks are not enough. Blueberry, blackberry, grape, plums, peaches and apricots measure up well against the famous red fruits cranberry, raspberry, cherry and Camu-camu. But good health does not revolve solely around the strength of anti-oxidants in the diet. Soluble and insoluble fibers, indoles, sulphorohane, flavanols, flavonoids, and complex polysaccharides and carotenoids all play a part.

I mix these together with 10 oz of orange juice and a scoop of Physillum Husk and drink it every morning.

I feel great. The digestion issues I have with my lupus are completely gone (Including when I had my major flare in December). It is the perfect breakfast for me and keeps me "full" until lunch time.

Feel free to ask me questions. But if you are looking for a healthy drink I would suggest these. The cost can be over welming by $100 for two months is pretty good for breakfast every morning.

Interesting! I'm in a similar situation and have been looking for a quick, healthy breakfast option. I'm also a picky eater and have stomach/digestion issues, so I will look into this...thanks!

Interesting. I see this was a few months back, is it still working well for you?
I purchased Green Vibrance before I was diagnosed with Lupus, hoping all the wonderful ingredients would make me feel better. In fact, I reacted each of the three times I tried it.
It contains alfalfa sprout powder, which can trigger flares in some folks with Lupus. In my mind I've put it in the same category as echinacea; good for everyone else but not those of us with Lupus.
Your post shows how much I still have to learn with this new-to-me disease: nothing is across the board. What works for us will vary.
Thanks for your blog. I'm glad I found it!
