As of the creation of my Athletic Greens AG1 Review video and this article, I have not talked to Athletic Greens. I am not sponsored and I do not have an affiliate link. I point this out so you understand the goal of this review. AG1 is sponsored all over YouTube and this can make it difficult to know if you should trust what people are saying. While I am not saying I am the only review you should use, I can tell you that I purchased the product like anyone else would and created a review. Nothing more to it.
You take something like AG1 to improve your health short and long-term. You also spend your hard earned money to purchase this product. It would be nice if you do not have to suffer through the taste. While I would not describe the taste as amazing compared to your favorite drink, it is much better than I expected. Considering all of the plant sources in this, I expected it to taste very earthy and it does not. To me, it tastes sort of like a hint of coconut water with a light fruity flavor. If you make it with a large amount of water, it does tend to be watered down and the flavors are very light. Which might be a great thing for you if you want it to be an easy drink. Personally, I like to use less water and a lot of ice as I think it tastes much better cold. Using less water brings out more of the flavor and I actually really enjoy it. It is not your favorite pop or coffee shop drink, but considering all of the nutrition packed into a single drink... it is actually rather enjoyable.
Many talk about how AG1 provides them a surge of energy to get through the day. I have seen many people in my comments say they notice this so it is defiantly a potential outcome. For me, I don't notice some instant change in how I feel. it is more of a leveling out of my day which I love. What I mean is instead of having those moments where you feel like you are done or get so tired all you can think about is a nap, I feel level and get through the day without these dips. I also feel like I can push longer into the day. Instead of the night being a time to crash because I am tapped, I can keep going, get things done, and feel really accomplished. Personally, I love this about drinks like AG1 and Ka'Chava.
Short Term - AG1 is a nutritional power house that covers all sorts of needs the body has. It is likely that many people have gaps in their diet, and if they fill those gaps they are going to notice a change. So in the short term, you get the benefits of knowing you are providing your body with a wide range of nutrition and each persons result may be different. As being deficient in something can impact how you feel and by addresses this, you may notice you are feeling a lot better. In additional to that, you may feel more energy as many others have expressed or you just feel more balanced throughout the day. I guess the point I am trying to make, is everyone comes into this in a different nutritional state and will likely have different results as AG1 helps address areas of improvement.
Long Term - I know this might be the more boring option, but when I am in my 80's I want to be playing with grand kids, going on adventures, and taking hikes. In short, I don't want to settle with "getting old" any sooner than I have to. Personally, I believe taking care of yourself before reaching those ages could have a major impact for when you do reach those ages. For that reason, I am happy to take products like this and also focus on having a healthy diet in general so I can live the life I want in my more advanced years.
Depending on how you use it, AG1 could help you with a lot of health goals. This could replace a wide range of supplements you are taking today, assist with a weight loss plan, help with energy levels, and a lot more. But what it really does is provide you a way to introduce a huge nutritional boost to your day. I don't believe this replaces a healthy diet. You should still attempt to eat healthy foods and get your exercise, but this is the product that can really help support your nutritional needs in ways that are hard to do normally.
