Skinny Greens Review Overview
Some Skinny Greens ingredients do have fat-burning properties. However, the ingredient list gives the weight of every proprietary blend instead of each individual ingredient, so it’s very difficult to know whether the supplement has enough of each ingredient to really make a difference. Skinny Greens is very expensive, and it’s difficult to see why the supplement has been priced so high. Overall, it’s really not worth buying.
What is Skinny Greens?
Skinny Greens is a dietary supplement under the SkinnyFit range. The supplement is a powdered substance made to mix with water to become a juice that can be enjoyed at any time of the day.
The website claims that taking Skinny Greens has multiple benefits including:
- Supports weight loss
- Calms bloating
- Supports the body’s natural immune system
- Boosts energy levels
- Decreases stress levels
The supplement’s combination of 34 superfoods as well as its prebiotic and adaptogen properties claim to support a healthy diet, alleviate feelings of bloating, and aid weight loss.
How do we as consumers know if these ingredients really encourage weight loss? Can a powdered supplement really accomplish all these benefits? Read on to find out!

As you can see, the Skinny Greens formula is broken up into separate proprietary blends. Those of you who have read other fat burner reviews on our site, such as our Thermofight X review, will know that we have no time for proprietary blends. They are always a sign of a scam.
We’ll no quickly go through each Skinny Greens blend and explain what it is supposed to do, what it really does, and what we make of the ingredients list as a whole.
Wholesome Superfood Blend
The Skinny Greens superfood blend contains the standard mix of supposed “superfoods”; chlorella, spirulina, wheatgrass – all the usual suspects! These substances are known to have some beneficial health effects. For example, spirulina is said to be a potent antioxidant, and there is some evidence that chlorella may help lower cholesterol. However, these benefits are nothing that you can’t get from any leafy green vegetables or high-fiber foods. There’s no reason to think this blend will help you lose weight or burn body fat.
The Skinng Greens probiotic blend is quite comprehensive. In fact, the Skinny Fit Skinny Greens probiotic blend is actually better than many probiotics and prebiotics, including those supposedly designed purposefully for weight loss. It combines a range of probiotics with digestive enzymes and prebiotic fibers. Taking this on a daily basis should help with appetite control and weight management. That said, this is nothing you wouldn’t get from eating more vegetables and fermented foods.
Mood-Boosting Adaptogen Blend
The mood boosting adaptogen blend in Skinny Greens is also pretty comprehensive. We get a good range of ingredients in this blend, most of which have been proven to be effective for reducing inflammation, suppressing anxiety, lowering stress, and improving cognitive performance. While many of these ingredients are effective nootropics and stress boosters, none of them help with weight loss.
Much more worringly, the ingredient listd first in this blend – coconut water powder – is a cheap filler with no beneficial effects whatsoever. It is highly likely that all 670mg of this Skinny Greens blend is just coconut water powder, with a few micrograms of the other, very expensive, ingredients thrown in at the end. Why else are SkinnyFit using a proprietary blend here if not to stuff the Skinny Greens formula with fillers!
The Skinny Greens waist-slimming blend is simultaneously the best and worst part of the Skinny Greens formula. We say the best because it contains all of the ingredients that will ctually help you lose weight! Until this point, nothing in Skinny Greens has contributed to faster weight loss. But we also say worst because the dosage is far too small to really have any effect. We get just 320mg of this blend, yet both glucomannan and green tea extrac need to be dosed at 300mg and up to really be effective; ideally, we’d get 500mg of glucomannan or more.
Skinny Greens FAQs
When should I take Skinny Greens?
You can take the supplement once daily at any time of day or night.
Some people add a Skinny Greens juice to their morning routine to start the day off with higher levels of energy and motivation.
Does Skinny Greens aid weight loss?
Skinny Greens is packed with several fat-fighting ingredients. However, there’s really not enough of each ingredient per daily serving to make a notable difference quickly. The formula also has a lack of common fat-burning ingredients found in most weight loss supplements including caffeine and theacrine.
16 pre and probiotic ingredients are added to the formula to improve digestion and calm bloating, so taking the supplement daily may help you feel and look your best if you suffer from digestive issues.
How much does Skinny Green cost?
For a one-time purchase, 1 jar costs $79.95 and comes with 30 servings. This is extremely expensive for a fat burner.
A monthly subscription of the supplement will set you back $59.96, giving you a saving of 25%. Even with this offer, we think that Skinny Green is still ridiculously expensive.
Skinny Green Side Effects
Is Skinny Greens safe?
Skinny Green is safe for most people and no common side effects have been reported. Users rarely report serious adverse effects while taking Skinny Greens, even for prolonged periods of time.
One exception to this is digestive discomfort. Due to the high amount of fiber and probiotics included in the Skinny Greens ingredients list, you may notice a change in your digestive patterns for the first few days after drinking the juice, but this is usually nothing to worry about. The side effects of increasing fiber intake should only last about a week or so before subsiding.
Conclusion: Does Skinny Green really help you lose weight?
Skinny Green boasts a lot of ingredients, but with such little quantity of many of these ingredients, it’s hard to see how effective they can be at achieving the benefits they claim to have.
In terms of bloating, the probiotic blend and anti-inflammatory ingredients may help ease symptoms. Having said this, there are better fat burners on the market right now with higher quantitates of ingredients that promise similar results.
The big price tag also makes this supplement difficult to like, and your hard-earned money would probably be better spent elsewhere.
