Greens like straight wheatgrass are very bitter so the addition of coconut water powder balances this bitterness naturally without adding sugar!

It’s full of potassium and electrolytes for hydration so you can train at your best or last longer and is a prebiotic for good gut health.

Some super greens powders have more ingredients - how did you chose the ingredients to put in Coconut Greens? Why not more?

More is definitely not better. Often the quantities of each ingredients are of very low concentrations, so why bother? Also some ingredients should be carefully considered.
