FS-Greens – Our full review of this popular greens powder

Published by Finn Hayden

There are so many greens powders out there that it can be hard to know which to choose - the truth is that although we've found greens powders that we really love, we've also tried lots which are basically just bags of spirulina with not much else added.

FS-Greens is a greens powder product that has been making waves on social media, so we decided to buy a bag and try it to see if it's actually worth the hype. In this review we'll be taking a close look at the product and giving you our honest thoughts on it. Let's get into the review:

Quick summary: although we think this greens powder contains some really interesting ingredients that you won't find in many other greens powders, we think it's a bit overpriced for what you get. 

Now let's get into the full review:

What ingredients are in FS-Greens?

As stated on the front of the FS Greens packet (pictured), there are 21 different ingredients in a bag of FS-Greens.

But as we all know, it's not about the quantity of ingredients, it's about the quality, and we do have to admit that there are a few ingredients in the FS-Greens product that we're not too impressed by, particularly given that the team at Her Free Soul describes it as an 'advanced formulation'.

Let's start with the positives - KSM-66® Ashwagandha is one of the first ingredients that's listed on the packaging, and this is definitely impressive. We've found very few greens powders which include nootropic mushrooms like this, but we love green powders like the Daemon Power Ultimate Greens which contain this type of ingredients. A lot of the time when you see ashwagandha listed in the ingredients of a product, it's ashwagandha leaves which aren't as dense in nutrients as the root. KSM-66 uses only the roots of the ashwagandha plant, so you get way more nutrition.

The powder also contains both Actazin® & Livaux® Golden Kiwi, which distill the benefits of kiwi fruit into a very concentrated form. The benefits of these compounds are vast and include helping you to digest protein better and improve the health of your immune system and gut.

Despite FS Greens describing a few other ingredients as "key", the only other ingredient which caught our eye is Lucuma. This fruit isn't often included in greens powders despite being packed with goodness such as high amounts of antioxidants.

We'd describe the other ingredients that FS Greens describes as "key" as pretty standard, for example chlorella, spirulina, and wheatgrass. In fact, almost every greens powder we've ever bought and tried contains these ingredients, so we're not really sure why FS Greens has felt the need to highlight them as if they're special.

What does FS-Greens taste like?

One thing we will say that we really like about the FS Greens powder is the taste - the Lucuma fruit is very sweet, and because it's made with apple and pineapple it even has a bit of a fruity taste, but it still tastes like a greens powder.

Anything else to mention?

We also really like the branding of the FS-Greens packet - it reminds us of the AG1 Athletic Greens packaging with the way that it lists all of the ingredients on the front, and we'd say that it definitely feels like a quality product.

Our main gripe with this product is how expensive it is - we paid £30 for a 150g bag which we feel is a lot to pay for this product, especially given that we can pay less for greens powders which we think are just as good, if not better in terms of ingredients. You could buy a 250g bag of the Naturya Green Superblend for less than half the price.

Final thoughts

So although there is a lot to like about the FS Greens powder, we think it's a bit too expensive for what you get.
