Product Review: Cygen Power Greens 21

I am in no way sponsored or profiting from this product review and i'm doing it solely because I believe it's a great product that i've been taking now for over 3 months. This is one of the only all in one nutritional shakes on the market that combines both protein, vitamins, minerals, BCAA's, and fiber in one convenient shake. The flavor is natural berry which is one of the best tasting greens products i've tried. Here are the macro's per 2 scoops: 21g protein, 2.5g fat, 9 g carbs, 2 g sugar, 5 g fiber, 5 g L-glutamine, 2.5 g BCAA.

I've been taking this post workout when my body is starving for a quick protein supply. Overall when your metabolism is spiked post workout, this is the optimal time to consume a product like this because of your bodies ability to utilize thee protein, vitamins, and minerals found in the shake to help rebuild the muscles after a hard workout. I've been adding an additional 30 grams of carbs to my post workout shake via waxy maize to reach my desired ratio of carbs to protein being 2:1. I believe this is a great product to add into your diet as it'll give you a wide range of nutrients that your diet could be lacking. The overall amount of vitamins and minerals that our bodies need is far greater than we can obtain from food alone. As an active athlete this is something you should consider if you want to maintain a healthy well-balanced diet.

I know you can find this product relatively easy in Canada at a number of different retailers and online stores. As for the USA market i'm not 100% sure where you can find it. If you're looking to purchase it in Canada, you can click here to purchase. For more information on the product click here.
