Goli Supergreens Gummies contain a blend of 11 green plants, plus vitamins and probiotics, to support overall health. Greens are a source of important vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants and although gummy supplements aren’t a substitute for eating vegetables, this supplement offers a convenient way to fill in gaps in nutrition.
Goli Supergreens Gummies are a gummy supplement that contains 11 nutrient-dense “supergreens,” probiotics, and vitamins, and minerals.
The recommended daily dose is two gummies taken two times per day.
One gummy has 2 calories, 3 grams of carbohydrates, 1 gram of fiber, 0 grams of sugar, several vitamins and minerals, and approximately 127 milligrams of a proprietary Supergreens and Probiotic Blend.
The greens blend includes artichoke leaf extract, spirulina, aloe vera, kale, moringa leaf, broccoli, barley grass, chlorella, parsley, spinach, and celery.
Goli claims this blend of greens, along with the probiotics and added vitamins and minerals, supports the function of the liver, nervous system, digestive system, immune system, and metabolism.
Many greens and superfruit supplements appeal to individuals who struggle to consume a variety of vegetables and fruits daily.
These products often contain “superfoods” and lesser-known greens and claim to provide more nutrition in a single serving than could reasonably be consumed from actual food.
Goli claims that each daily serving of Supergreens Gummies provides you with more vitamins and minerals than you could get from eating the vitamin and mineral-rich greens it’s made from.
For example, they claim a serving of gummies provides “more vitamin A than 62 Brussel sprouts” and “more zinc than 26 cups of kale.” I’m not a fan of this kind of marketing.
I think it sends the message that you’d have to eat large quantities of what is undoubtedly healthy food to get “enough” vitamins and minerals, and therefore users are better off taking supplements than eating produce.
Enjoying a few candy-like gummies each day certainly seems more manageable and more fun than trying to chew your way through 62 Brussel sprouts and 26 cups of kale.
Does that mean you can stop eating vegetables? Spoiler alert — the answer is no.
I couldn’t locate any information on the flavor of the gummies, but reviewers say they taste fruity.
The gummies are sweetened with allulose and monk fruit extract instead of sugar, so they’re sugar-free and low-carb/keto-friendly.
They do not contain common allergens, including yeast, wheat, milk, eggs, gluten, soy, peanuts, shellfish, or dairy.
They’re also free of artificial sweeteners, colors, and flavors, and made without gelatin, an animal by-product, so they’re vegan-friendly.
Supergreens Proprietary Blend, 127.5 mg per gummy, 510 mg per day
This blend contains 11 types of greens, including artichoke leaf extract, spirulina, aloe vera, kale, moringa leaf, broccoli, barley grass, chlorella, parsley, spinach, and celery.
These greens are known for being nutrient-dense and an excellent source of antioxidants.
Some are well-known vegetables, like kale, broccoli, spinach, and celery, while others are considered “superfoods.”
There have been some animal studies that suggest artichoke leaf extract benefits liver health. (1)
Studies in humans have examined the effect of artichoke leaf extract supplementation in patients diagnosed with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
Supplementation is associated with improvements in liver health markers, but more research in humans is needed. (2)
Moringa leaf extract has been extensively studied and has demonstrated anti-inflammatory activity and health benefits for the liver, nervous system, and immune system. (3)
They’re also good sources of plant protein, but these gummies don’t list any protein content on the Supplement Facts Label.
That makes me wonder how much of these ingredients this product contains.
That’s the problem with proprietary blends. There’s no way to know how much of each green is included in these gummies.
The Supergreens Proprietary Blend also contains a probiotic called Bacillus subtilis MB40.
Typically, probiotic supplements list probiotic quantities in CFUs. However, it’s unclear how much of the probiotic Goli Supergreens contains.
In this 2021 randomized controlled trial, no significant differences in digestive health were observed between the placebo group and the group receiving the B. subtilis probiotic. (6)
The individual ingredients in the Supergreens blend are associated with health benefits. However, without knowing the exact amount of these ingredients in the blend, it’s not clear if you’re getting enough of them to benefit you more than eating a variety of green plant foods.
Not to mention that actual vegetables provide other health benefits, like water content and fiber that helps hydrate, satiate, and support digestive health and weight loss.
Essential Vitamins and Minerals
Vitamin A, 113 mcg per gummy, 452 mcg per day
Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin that plays an essential role in vision, reproduction, and immune system function. (7)
Vitamin A is pretty easy to come by from dietary sources. It’s found in various foods, including spinach, carrots, sweet potatoes, fortified dairy, broccoli, eggs, and seafood.
The RDA for vitamin A is 900 mcg for men and 700 mcg for women. Four Goli Supergreens gummies provide about half this amount at 452 mcg of vitamin A per day.
Goli Supergreens Gummies contain the following B vitamins: (8)
- Thiamin: 0.3 mg per gummy, 1.2 mg per day
- Niacin: 0.805 mg per gummy, 3.22 mg per day
- Vitamin B6: 0.085 mg per gummy, 0.34 mg per day
- Folate (Folic Acid): 20 mcg per gummy, 80 mcg per day
- Vitamin B12: 18 mcg per gummy, 72 mcg per day
- Pantothenic Acid: 0.25 mg per gummy, 1 mg per day
Compared to recommended daily amounts, four gummies per day provides approximately:
- 100% of the RDA for thiamin (9)
- 20% of the RDA for niacin (10)
- 28% of the RDA for vitamin B6 (11)
- 20% of the RDA for folate (12)
- 3% of the RDA for vitamin B12 (13)
- 20% of the RDA for pantothenic acid (14)
B vitamins are water-soluble and have numerous roles in the body. They are mostly known for their role in metabolism and energy production.
Other critical functions are the involvement of Vitamin B6 in the production of red blood cells, folate in preventing fetal neural tube defects, and pantothenic acid in hormone production.
Iron, 1.41 mg per gummy, 5.64 mg per day
Iron is involved in moving oxygen through the blood and producing energy. (15)
The RDA for iron for men is 8 milligrams and 18 milligrams for women. Due to menstruation and reproduction, adult women have higher daily iron needs than men. (16)
Leafy greens and broccoli are good sources of iron, so one might expect to see iron in a greens supplement.
Goli Supergreens Gummies contains a common oral iron supplement called ferrous fumarate. However, it’s not clear if the iron in these gummies comes entirely from the iron supplement or if some of it is naturally occurring in the green blends.
Four gummies per day is a good source of iron, meeting more than 50% of men’s daily needs and about 31% of women’s daily needs.
Magnesium, 3.15 mg per gummy, 12.6 mg per day
Magnesium plays many vital roles in the body. It’s involved in metabolism, energy production, and bone and brain health. (17)
Based on the RDAs for magnesium, men need about 400 milligrams per day, and women need about 300 milligrams per day. (18)
Four gummies per day only provide 3% to 4% of the RDA for magnesium, so it’s not a very good source of this nutrient.
Zinc, 0.55 mg per gummy, 2.2 mg per day
The RDA for zinc is 11 milligrams for men and 8 milligrams for women. Four Goli gummies per day provide 20% and 27% of zinc for men and women, respectively. (21)
Goli Supergreens contains a variety of essential vitamins and minerals that may help improve the nutrient density of your diet.
Support for Claimed Benefits
Below is our summary of the available evidence for the claimed benefits of Goli Supergreens Gummies based on the available research:
|Supports liver function||3/5|
|Supports nervous system||4/5|
|Supports digestive health||2/5|
|Supports immune system||4/5|
|Supports overall health||4/5|
Most of the claims for Goli Supergreens are related to the vitamin and mineral content and not the actual blend of supergreens.
This product contains several vitamins and minerals that play a wide range of roles in the body and are critical for overall well-being. However, these nutrients are also easily obtained from the diet.
There have been animal and human studies on the effect of artichoke leaf extract on liver health.
It appears to benefit the liver, but research is limited, and human studies have focused on improving liver function in patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease so it’s unclear if the benefit extends to the general population.
B vitamins play a role in normal nervous system functioning. However, there’s no evidence that supplemental B vitamins enhance the health of the nervous system.
The B vitamins in this product play a role in energy metabolism and energy production from the food you eat.
Vitamin B Complex deficiencies are rare, and there is no evidence that supplemental B vitamins enhance metabolism and energy production any more than a healthy diet.
Probiotics support digestive health, but the probiotic in this product is in an unknown amount, and the strain used hasn’t been associated with significant improvements in digestive issues.
This product is a good source of supplemental zinc, which can support the immune system.
The Supplement Facts provides nutrition information for 2 Supergreens Gummies, but the recommended dose is two gummies twice a day.
Some math is required to figure out how much of each nutrient you’re getting if you take the recommended dose of 4 gummies a day.
Goli recommends taking the gummies with food to enhance absorption, but they can be taken any time of day that suits you.
The gummies appear safe for adults and children to consume without any significant risk of side effects.
They are made without gelatin and are free from common allergens.
Because these gummies are also sugar-free, they do not contribute to your daily intake of added sugar.
Allulose can cause digestive problems, including diarrhea, bloating, and stomach pain in some individuals when eaten in large quantities. (22)
These gummies probably don’t contain enough allulose to trigger these side effects.
Goli considers their product line complementary to each other.
However, if you take Supergreens Gummies with other Goli products or vitamin and mineral supplements, you may be exceeding the RDA for several nutrients.
The two nutrients I’d pay close attention to are vitamin A and zinc.
For example, taking Goli Supergreens and Superfruits gummies daily as directed easily surpasses the RDA for Vitamin A for both men and women and provides about 75% of the RDA for zinc for women.
However, these occur when the Upper Limit for these nutrients is exceeded, which is much more than what is found in these gummies.
Goli Supergreens Gummies appear safe for many people, but you should speak with your doctor before taking any new dietary supplements.
At the time of this writing, Goli Supergreens Gummies are only available for pre-order through the Goli website.
Other Goli products can be purchased through Amazon and GNC, so it’s reasonable to assume these gummies will eventually be available at other retailers when stock is replenished.
The Supergreens Gummies are available in different bundles:
- 1-month supply: $19
- 3-month supply: $57 or $19 per bottle
- 5-month supply: $99 or $16.50 per bottle with a complimentary bottle of Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) Gummies
Goli also sells Supergreens Gummies bundled with their other products:
- 4-product bundle: $72 or $18 per bottle, includes 1 Supergreens Gummies, 1 ACV Gummies, 1 Ashwagandha Gummies, and 1 Superfruits Gummies
- 6-product bundle: $109 or about $15.50 per bottle, includes 3 Supergreens Gummies, 1 ACV Gummies, 1 Ashwagandha Gummies, 1 Superfruits Gummies, and a free additional bottle of ACV Gummies
Each bottle of Supergreens Gummies contains 60 gummies.
Goli considers one bottle of Supergreens Gummies a 1-month supply, but you’ll need two bottles per month if you follow the recommended dosage of 4 gummies per day.
Two bottles of gummies per month change the cost of a one-month supply to $30–$40 per month, depending on which bundle you choose.
This seems high for a gummy supplement. Mainly since we don’t know exactly how much of each type of greens the product contains, and again, it’s no substitute for eating greens and more plant foods to begin with.
If you use this product occasionally instead of daily (say, on days where you didn’t consume many vegetables), then I could see it being worth it.
All orders from the Goli website ship free and are backed by a 30-day money-back guarantee for opened and unopened products.
Contact information to initiate a refund request can be found on the Goli website. Customers are responsible for paying for return shipping.
There are many greens supplements available that contain a blend of greens, but most of them are in powdered form and mixed with water.
Athletic Greens and Organifi Green Juice are examples of “supergreens” powder supplements.
Athletic Greens is more than just a powdered greens supplement. It contains several blends with long ingredient lists that provide antioxidants, protein, fat, vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals.
The greens component includes spirulina, chlorella, kelp, wheatgrass, alfalfa, spinach, and broccoli, as well as fruits and antioxidant powerhouses like cocoa, green tea, ginger, and goji berries.
Some other ingredients found in Athletic Greens include pea protein isolate, omega-3 fatty acids, ashwagandha, CoQ10, and powdered mushrooms. It also contains two strains of probiotics and a long list of vitamins and minerals.
A 30-day supply of Athletic Greens is expensive, costing close to $100. Although it costs more than Goli Supergreens Gummies, the price may be worth it considering it’s third-party tested for purity and safety and packed with nutrient-dense ingredients.
Organifi Green Juice contains probiotics and is sweetened without the use of sugar.
The greens blend in Organifi Green Juice contains wheatgrass, moringa, spirulina, and chlorella, along with other “superfood” ingredients like green tea, turmeric, and red beets.
However, Organifi Green Juice doesn’t have added vitamins and minerals like Goli Supergreens Gummies do. A 30-serving package costs $69.95.
Goli Supergreens Gummies is more affordable, contains more types of greens, and has added vitamins and minerals, so it seems to offer more value.
I found one other green gummy supplement called Daily Greens Gummies from a company called 8Greens.
It contains a proprietary green blend that includes spinach, aloe vera, wheatgrass, barley grass, blue-green algae, spirulina, and chlorella.
However, the first ingredient in the blend is microcrystalline cellulose, also known as powdered wood pulp.
Cellulose is a non-nutritive additive used for various purposes, such as emulsifying or as a filler, in some food and supplement products – not exactly what I’d consider a green.
Since this is another proprietary blend, you have no idea how much of each green this product contains.
Unlike Goli, 8Greens gummies contain 3 grams of added sugar per serving. The gummies have added vitamin C, several B vitamins, and zinc, are apple flavored, and vegan.
Each bottle contains 25 servings and costs $18.99 on Amazon. The serving size is two gummies.
Goli Supergreens Gummies win here. They have no sugar, no cellulose, and contain more of a variety of greens, vitamins, and minerals.
Frequently Asked Questions
What do Goli Supergreens Gummies do?
Goli Supergreens Gummies claim to support overall health and the functioning of the liver, nervous system, immune system, digestive system, and metabolism.
There’s limited evidence to support the proprietary blend used in these gummies and all the health claims.
Green vegetables are a rich source of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. The proprietary greens blend used in this product makes it tough to know the amount of greens you’re actually getting.
How many Goli Supergreens Gummies should I take daily?
The recommended dosing information provided by Goli is 2 gummies twice daily, or a total of 4 gummies per day.
Who should avoid Goli Supergreens Gummies?
Goli Supergreens Gummies appear safe for most adults. They are free of sugar, gelatin, and major allergens, which makes them an acceptable supplement for individuals with diabetes or food allergies, vegans, and anyone following a low carbohydrate or ketogenic diet.
If you are taking other supplements, it’s a good idea to cross check the Supplements Facts label to make sure you’re not exceeding the RDA for some vitamins and minerals.
Speak with a healthcare professional to be sure your supplements are safe for you and not posing a risk of toxicity.
Do Goli Supergreens Gummies work?
The vitamins and minerals in these gummies have many roles in the body and likely support the health and functioning of several body systems. However, the benefit is likely no different than taking a daily multivitamin and eating your vegetables.
Are there any side effects to taking Goli Supergreens Gummies?
There’s no evidence that these gummies have any significant risk of side effects. The sweeteners used in these gummies, allulose and monk fruit extract, have been known to cause digestive upset in some individuals. However, it’s unlikely the gummies contain enough of these sweeteners to lead to these side effects.
Do Goli Supergreens Gummies contain sugar?
Goli Supergreens Gummies are sugar-free. They are sweetened with allulose and monk fruit extract, which are natural non-nutritive sweeteners that do not add carbohydrates or added sugar to the product. These sweeteners are also low-carb/keto friendly.
Do Goli Supergreens Gummies contain gelatin?
No, they do not contain gelatin. The formula is entirely plant-based and vegan friendly.
Goli Supergreens Gummies is designed to be a convenient and easy way to get extra greens into your diet.
While there’s no substitute for eating vegetables, many people struggle to eat enough vegetables or include a variety of greens in their diet.
Supplementing with a greens product like Goli Supergreens may help fill gaps in dietary nutrition.
Besides a blend of greens, Goli Supergreens Gummies also contains probiotics to support digestive health and ten vitamins and minerals to support overall health.
While these additional nutrients offer more value compared to other greens products, it’s nothing you couldn’t get from eating fruits and vegetables regularly.
Still, Goli Supergreens Gummies could be useful for occasional use, like on days when you eat little to no vegetables or are traveling and need an easy-to-take vitamin.
If you’re concerned you’re not getting enough greens in your diet, I encourage you to try eating more fruits and vegetables.
In addition to vitamins and minerals, fruits and vegetables contain water, fiber, and antioxidants that cannot be replicated in a supplement.
One easy way to “sneak” more greens in is by adding them to smoothies where other ingredients mask the taste.
In addition, if you’re looking for probiotics for digestive support, fermented foods, like yogurt and kombucha, are a good source of beneficial probiotics.
