I went to gnc and looked at their greens plus products, and they were two expensive, so I went to amazon and looked at the original greens plus, and its fairly cheap, but I noticed that it contained a hefty dose of soy lecithin. After only reading the words soy, I felt xenoestrogen coursing through my body, I felt my nipples get perky in the rush of chill wind, and to watch days of our lives while eating chocolate bon-bons and complaining about how men are pigs.
So, is greens plus okay even with the lecithin content.?
lecithin is very healthy and not remotely estrogenic. very good for the brain. in any case, the amount of lecithin in a serving of greens plus would be quite minute. it’s also a fairly common additive - for example it’s in chocolate - because it’s an emulsifier (meaning that it allows oil and water to mix).
Chris Shugart highlighted a few questionable ingredients in a response to a question of mine about using Greens+ in shakes on the Velocity Diet. From memory licorice root and soy sprouts were the ones that might be estrogenic.

I always have to reduce my weight to compete and I’ve been using greens+ or greens + detox mixed with my vanilla Metabolic Drive once a day. I usually pour this over my oatmeal in the morning however I’ll drink it alone for breakfast with a bit of creatine when I’ve got a lot of weight to lose. I’ve found it very convenient, filling and I always feel great in the morning.
As someone who always needs to improve their strength, the soy worried me however I’ve had no indication that the testosterone levels are hurting (sorry, not very scientific, just based on my experience). I’m getting stronger and leaner while using it and recommend it.
I’d love to see Biotest come out with a better product that’s similar to help those who don’t eat enough veggies.
