There are many scientific studies on the pharmacological properties of the individual ingredients that make up Organifi drink, although there is not yet any recorded clinical trial of the product as a whole.
However, one cannot but agree that Organifi might help with the following;
- Convenient: all the work has already been done, simply mix up and drink up. You can conveniently whisk out a sachet of Organifi and mix with your glass of water at the restaurant or office cafeteria.
- Saves time and stress: it spares you the stress of prepping the juice and the annoying clean up that follows thereafter. Many would like to drink green juice but don’t just have the time and patience to go through the hassle of preparing one. Organifi is a lifesaver for such people and you can utilize the time it saves you to achieve other things.
- Detoxifies: most of the superfoods we discussed above have anti-oxidative properties and mop up free oxidative radicals, thus detoxifying the blood. Some of the ingredients enhance liver and kidney function, and thus help the liver in its detoxification activities.
- Improves metabolic processes: the superfoods contain phytochemicals that support and facilitate the body’s metabolism such as digestion and absorption, haemoglobin synthesis, waste elimination, cell renewal, etc.
- Energises: vitamins and minerals are revitalizing to the body, and with proper nourishment of the body comes renewed strength and vigour.
- Improves Sleep: the soothing effects of some of the herbs mentioned earlier will likely lead to a significant improvement in sleep cycles.
- Facilitates weight loss: The supplement consists of a lot of fibres which aid bowel movements and help you to feel lighter and at ease. Also, the slightly thickened consistency of the juice makes it filling and hunger-satiating. It keeps you full, prevents you from eating much while supplying your body with all the nourishment and energy it needs, and this helps to burn excess fat and shed weight. The green juice drink suppresses appetite and stops you from eating too much, and this helps your body to burn off accumulated fats.

What We Think
With over 2 million Facebook likes and myriads of followers on other Organifi social media handles, it is obvious that Organifi products are reliable, lives up to their claims and have found wide acceptance among the public.
Moreover, the sterling feedbacks and testimonials on Amazon’s website from verified buyers and users of the dietary supplement lends heavy credence to the efficacy of Organifi green juice drink. There are numerous reviews and feedbacks on this product, most of which are positive. These reviews, although not 100% positive, are encouraging and tell a lot about the quality of the green juice. Out of the 2,786 reviews on Amazon, 80% rate the product 4-star and above.
The complaints noted mainly bordered on the cost of the product and only a very few denied the effectiveness of the drink. The positive feedbacks commend the great taste of the drink, its revitalizing and energy-giving effect, fast results and weight loss that doesn’t come back.
On the other hand, the brain behind the product, Mr. Canole, is a renowned fitness enthusiast and a seasoned health expert, who has dedicated a greater part of his life helping people to live healthier lifestyles. He has also personally been the first beneficial of the product that he is marketing and recommending to others. He isn’t just a greenhorn fitness enthusiast out to make some bucks with a nutritional supplement which its efficacy cannot be verified.
Also, the Organifi green juice beats that general perception that if it is green juice, then the taste must be yucky and awful. Organifi, though made from natural and organic superfoods and herbs, have a pleasant and agreeable taste. If you find yourself grossed out by the taste of green juice but yearn to enjoy the benefits of a great dietary supplement, Organifi Green Juice will come to your rescue. The taste is mildly minty but not overpowering, and you can easily mix the powdered supplement in a glass of water or milk and down it in few gulps. You can also incorporate the juice into your favorite smoothie, juice or protein shake.
Another pleasant fact, is the easy manner with which the Organifi Green Juice powder mixes up with any liquid, easily blending in smoothly.
In addition, the consistency makes it easy to drink and flow smoothly down the throat. When dissolved in plain water or milk, the juice comes out slightly turbid and thick. This equally makes mixing it with a smoothie a delicious experience.
Although people’s preferences differ, and so some may find the slightly bulky consistency unappealing. Mixing with a smoothie will solve this problem. Some people also find the smell of blended natural veggies nauseating and Organifi being a green juice with no added artificial flavouring agent to mask the classic green juice smell may be a challenge to such people.
On Amazon it sells for about $73.15, for a 30-day supply of 30 servings. That is approximately $2 per day, cheaper than an average cup of Starbucks but with more nutrients and far-reaching benefits. With the host of wonderful superfoods that constitute the Organifi Green Juice, the product cannot objectively be described as expensive. It delivers excellent value for the money paid on it.
However, the drink is not an instant miracle weight loss cure. The efficacy shows through with consistent use of the product. You need to use it consistently for at least a week to enjoy the benefits it promises.
One notable and worrisome thing that cannot just be ignored is the warning about possible carcinogens stated on the container of the product. However, this warning can be found on many other apparently harmless products sold throughout the United States.
