costly ORAC units
on 15 November 2014
Not only is an Ultimate Protector capsule much easier to get down you but costs only 1/5 of the Green Superfood price, by direct comparison of ORAC units. ("superfood" here is a name, not a description, and therefore has no legal meaning)
There are 60 servings here, with each of the servings being 1 scoop. 1 scoop is about 2 teaspoons and this is said to provide 40,000 ORAC units (Oxygen Radical Absorbance capacity). The taste of all of them (having tried several in a tasting session) appear to be tolerable in a shake perhaps.
Compare this - both ORAC numbers and price - to Ultimate Protector. Each Ultimate Protector capsule (medium size) provides over 80,000 ORAC units and there are 180 capsules in a bottle which (currently) costs £38 on Amazon.

Worse: the vitamins and minerals listed here are often much less than even 1% of daily needs and the percentages on the label are suspect. Only a few of the vitamins and minerals listed have more than a tenth of the RDA which itself is far too small. 9 of the listed nutrients are less than 1mg, which is laughable. These nutrients therefore offer little or no benefit, as pointed out in my earlier comment. The only exceptions are potassium and the beta-carotene which recent research shows even healthy people rarely convert to real vitamin A.
There must be better ways of getting greens and certainly there is a better way to get ORAC units.
