Man Greens is a blend of natural greens designed to boost men’s health and vitality. It is a manly mix of green superfoods specially formulated to increase your energy, improve your health, and help your male hormones thrive.
Mita Nutra founder, Chad Howse, has always loved the idea of supplementing with greens since they offer full, bioavailable amounts of superfoods in a single scoop. Since all he found in the attempts of others’ products were light on effective ingredients, though estrogenic, he opted to create his own better, more effective version.
Let’s take a closer look at this green superfood mix and see what it truly has to offer in this review of Man Greens. We’ll discuss its ingredients and benefits and what makes it particularly effective for men.
About Man Greens
There are tons of green superfood supplements out there, from Amazing Grass Green Superfood to Smashin’ Greens, so what sets Man Greens apart? As the name suggests, Man Greens has your healthy superfoods, but it takes them in a more manly direction.
It contains adaptogens, anabolic agents, and superfoods meant to keep you and your hormones healthy while leaving out compounds such as flax seed that can elevate your estrogen levels.
In fact, according to Mita Nutra, many compounds common in green food blends work against your testosterone production and instead elevate estrogen and other hormones that inhibit your T levels.
For instance, a common component of green food mixes is green tea, which is typically a very healthy thing. But for guys, studies show rats experiencing up to a 78%-decline in androgen production when given high doses of green tea.
Though we’re not sure how this translates to human gym rats, it’s still something to chew on…
Man Greens Benefits
The benefits of this male-targeted superfood powder are primarily based on its ingredients, which we will detail in a further section. However, here’s a rundown of what Man Greens can do for you.
Increases Testosterone + Lowers Cortisol & Stress
Some plant compounds in Man Greens, like horny goat weed, forskolin, and maca root, have all shown promise at optimizing androgens, which in turn helps lower your cortisol and, thus, stress level.
Remember that cortisol is (one of) testosterone’s enemies and something your adrenals produce too much of when you’re under chronic stress. This leads to weight gain, depression, and more estrogen—a vicious circle, indeed!
Ingredients such as ashwagandha help balance your adrenal output so that you feel fewer effects of chronic stress and more of the effects of a healthy androgen output.
These include more confidence and energy, less dough around the middle, and a strong desire (and stiffness!) to tickle the missus’ fancy.
Reduces Blood Pressure & Improves Heart Health
Nitric oxide found in green foods and beets helps to relax your capillaries and reduce your heart’s workload. It also helps reduce your stress response and slim down with the help of some extra T in your veins.
This helps you stay healthy, lowers your risk for cardiovascular disease, and gives you some extra VO2 max to work with in the gym and running trails. Without excess pressure to work against, your heart can perform at its most efficient, giving you extra beats on your threshold, which of course, means extra wind in your lungs and more stamina.
Rich in Vitamins, Minerals & Antioxidants
The best vitamins are food-based, and it doesn’t get much more “food-based” than green foods. Not only are they an outstanding source of oil and water-soluble vitamins such as C, B-complex, K, and D, but minerals such as magnesium and potassium.
And that’s not to mention what we know green foods so well for; their role as antioxidant-packed superfoods, which not only include potent antioxidants from the plant’s pigment but vitamins such as E and C, which means potent antioxidants galore!
Put it this way: the spirulina alone in this formula can be considered “nature’s multivitamin” and only adds to the nutrient density of the formula’s other ingredients, such as spinach, Moringa Oleiferal, and beetroot powder.
Man Greens Ingredients
As promised, here’s a detailed breakdown of the ingredients in Man Greens.
Ashwagandha 600 mg
Stress, anxiety, and cortisol get in the way of your healthy androgen output, and ashwagandha can help reduce them. It’s in a category of herbs known as “adaptogens” due to their ability to adapt to your body’s energy needs, which they do via balancing your adrenal hormones.
This means less of the stress by-product cortisol—a hormone that keeps your blood sugar high, your testosterone low, and you feeling like crap.
Since the symptoms of chronic stress and too much cortisol include brain fog, weight gain, insomnia, and depression, ashwagandha helps you feel the opposite effects—as in clear, focused thinking, a trimmer midsection, and reason to do scissor-kicks just for the heck of it.
Tongkat Ali 125 mg
Tongkat Ali, also known as Eurycoma longifolia and Longjack, is a potent herbal remedy that’s been shown to boost sperm production and erectility and delay ejaculation.
Forskolin 250 mg
Science shows forskolin to be beneficial in boosting testosterone by as much as 33.77% in a 12-week randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study.
This is significant and can undoubtedly help power you through your daily and nightly activities!
Maca 1.5 g
This Andean root, also known as Peruvian Ginseng, is known for helping boost fertility, increase endurance, and improve mood—all of which science agrees with. It’s also nutrient dense and adds a unique sour earthiness to the mix!
Well, maybe not at first-or for some at all—since it’s kind of an acquired taste. We like it, though.
Spirulina 5 g
So nutritionally dense and easy to grow that NASA was once considering this single-celled organism for sustainable space food, spirulina proves that pond scum is good for you. It contains vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, which, according to at least one study, have been shown to be more effective in countering malnutrition than vitamin and mineral supplements.
For guys, this is great since we’re notoriously bad about eating our greens—though when we do, why not get as much as possible out of them?
This also translates to you being healthier overall, which means better androgen production, more energy, and fewer symptoms of chronic stress.
Beetroot Powder (1 g) & Spinach (1 g)
Speaking of nutritionally dense veggies with antioxidant benefits and more, beetroot powder and spinach are both rich sources of vitamins and minerals that can protect against oxidative stress.
Plus, while both provide blood vessel-relaxing nitric oxide, beets are an excellent source. This is important not only to your cardiovascular health since it lowers blood pressure and allows your heart to work at its greatest efficiency, but also to your stamina, energy, and workout capacity as well.
Plus, the extra oxygen an efficient cardiovascular system can deliver to your brain, body, and organs improves nearly every aspect of your health, including your hormone production.
Turmeric 500 mg
Another root with benefits to your health is turmeric, which is the same stuff that makes curry yellow and flavorful. Better yet (or at least, healthier yet, since nothing’s better than real vindaloo…full Indian spicy, please), it contains curcumin, which is as potent an inflammation-busting antioxidant as you’re going to find.
Though turmeric itself doesn’t contain a considerable amount of curcumin (about 3% by weight), every little bit counts, and it also adds that turmeric earthiness to the flavor while we’re at it.
Moringa Oleifera 1 g
Moringa oleifera is a nutrient-dense leaf from the moringa tree famous in Northern India. This rounds things out with more vitamins, minerals, and antioxidant plant compounds to fight testosterone-reducing inflammation and keep you energized and focused.
Does Man Greens Work?
If you’re a guy who, like so many of us, skimps on the greens, this product may be for you. However, don’t expect the flood of testosterone Mita would like you to believe this product creates; While it can optimize what you’ve got, that’s about as far as it goes.
That said, it can help lower your blood pressure, energize you, and reduce symptoms of chronic stress, all of which are clearly good things. It’s loaded with food-based nutrition and can help shore up your already-healthy diet—or at least get you closer to consuming a healthy, well-rounded diet.
You are, after all, still a guy—sheesh!
Who is Man Greens Best For?
Though Mita’s marketing directs its efforts toward men for this product, there’s nothing in it that women can’t benefit from. Remember that adaptogens also work at balancing female hormones, and they’re also good for restoring the lost libidos of older men and women experiencing age-related hormone declines.
However, teens or younger people should avoid anabolic agents such as forskolin, and pregnant or nursing women and those on medication also need to check with their doctor before using.
Claims vs. Reality
Though Mita Nutra claims this product to be loaded with testosterone-boosting compounds, what it really has are testosterone-optimizing compounds. This means that unless your system is really in the dumps, you’ll probably not notice any hugely dramatic effects.
Yes, you may notice a bit more “excitement in the shorts” thanks to the nitric oxide-boosting compounds in it, and there’s no doubt that the good nutrition this product provides will help reduce inflammation and energize you, though don’t expect it to turn you into vintage Lou Ferrigno.
Something else that should be noted is Mita Nutra’s 60-day, 100% back 5x guarantee, which we assume means a 60-day, 100% MONEY back guarantee. It’s good to know that you can still return any unopened containers and get a full refund for them and what you’ve used (no need to return opened containers).
Man Greens Safety
Though some may be sensitive or allergic to some of the ingredients in Man Greens, most will only experience side effects such as lower blood pressure, better focus, and more energy.
Man Greens contains natural herbal compounds that are largely considered safe, nutritious, and healthy. However, it’s still a good idea to stay away from this product if you’re in your teens (or younger), pregnant, nursing, or on medications.
Where to Buy Man Greens
This stuff is highly priced at $79.95 for a month’s worth. No, let’s correct that: it’s freaking INSANELY expensive. Seriously, you could eat a salad and grab a few supplements from your local health food store and probably get the same result for much less.
Still, if you’ve got a Brinks truck to back up and would like to sign on for regular deliveries of Man Greens, Mita Nutra is generous enough to knock a full $20, lowering your cost to $59.96.
That said, you can purchase Man Greens on Mita Nutra’s site, and remember to bring lots of money.
Final Thoughts: Man Greens
Man Greens boasts an excellent nutritional profile that’s quite different from what we’ve seen in most superfood supplements. As far as we know, it’s clean, effective, and relatively safe.
This superfood supplement contains potent plant substances that could very well be the difference you’ve been searching for, but we just can’t get over how much it’s sold for!
