Glaxon Logo Two

The Goons at Glaxon are always up to something, so stay tuned!

Ever since Glaxon launched last year, the supplement industry can’t stop talking about their formulas, products, advertisements, and informative videos. They’re creating quite the buzz and PricePlow definitely saw this coming — we predicted that they would be the talk of the town and even named them our Supplement Brand to Watch for in 2020.

There are so many supplement companies that come and go, but never gain that much traction. Glaxon is different because the last thing they want to do is follow industry trends. Instead, the “Goons” that run the company set out on a mission to use their experience, passion, and interests to create a brand no one can ever replicate. Glaxon is doing what they do best, giving consumers entertaining and informative content, epic products, and always looking to improve.

Introducing Super Greens: A Performance Focused Greens Supplement

We’ve tried several of Glaxon’s products so far, and always wonder how they’re so effective. You need to try them for yourself to really understand the method behind the madness that goes on at Glaxon. If you’re into high energy pre workouts, Specimen is a perfect fit. But if you’re looking for a supplement to help you hit your daily micronutrient intake and get some performance benefits, then look no further than Glaxon Super Greens!

Not your average greens supplement

Glaxon SuperGreens Outer Space

Super Greens are formulated for another planet.

Like all of Glaxon’s supplements, Super Greens is not your average greens product (eg it’s not one that tastes like you just licked a patch of grass). Glaxon knows all you Goons don’t always get enough fruits, veggies, or fiber in your diet. Yet they also know there are some bros out there that only care about how big their biceps can get. Therefore, Glaxon wanted to give you the best of both worlds, a supplement that contains several ingredients that offer plenty of health benefits, and a few that increase recovery and performance! They don’t call it SuperGreens for nothing, and once you see the label, you’ll agree that it definitely outshines every other product on the market.

Below, we break down the details and hidden benefits of SuperGreens so you can understand how the formula will improve your health and performance. You’re probably thinking this is too good to be true, so just read on to see why PricePlow is very excited about Super Greens.

What’s The Point of a Greens Product?

Glaxon Super Greens

Super Greens has it all, including fruits, greens, and fungi!

Before we dive into the nitty gritty details of Super Greens’ supplement facts panel, let’s first discuss the purpose of a greens powder. Some people think that they can just drink a greens supplement, and then they’ll never have to eat fruits or veggies ever again. Well, that couldn’t be further from the truth. You should always aim for getting several roughly 3-5 total servings of fruits and vegetables per day. However, we all know we’re not perfect and sometimes fall short, therefore a greens-based product can serve as an insurance policy to help us out.

But like we mentioned, Super Greens is more than just a blend of greens — it has several other ingredients that are beneficial for everyday use, even if you get plenty of fruits and veggies from your standard diet. Greens supplements typically consist of a wide variety of grasses, cruciferous vegetables, and algae. In order to be placed into a powder, these ingredients undergo specific processing methods. As a result, the greens’ nutrients are strained out, but what’s left behind is a concentrated powder rich in chlorophyll. Chlorophyll has some unique benefits that we will be explained as we discuss the ingredients below.

Super Greens Ingredients: Fruits, Greens, and Fungi

Glaxon has several blends in this product that each offer their own positive effects. We’re not going to analyze every single ingredient because that would turn into a textbook! Instead, we’re going to discuss the blend as a whole, so you understand why it’s included. There are also a few simple ingredients not commonly found in average greens formulas — that’s the performance side!

The ingredient panel is stacked, and if you’re one of the few people that get plenty of fruits, veggies, and fiber each day, then you can probably only take half a serving. However, for most of the Glaxon Goons out there, a full serving will give you the most benefits. Although the label lists dosage for both a half and full scoop serving, we’re going to analyze a full serving!

Glaxon Super Greens Supplement Facts

Glaxon SuperGreens contain several ingredients to help hit your daily micronutrient intake, and it even has some fiber to ensure your gut stays functioning properly.

Here’s what one scoop (14.084g) of Super Greens will deliver:

  • Acacia (Acacia senegal) Fiber – 5g

    Let’s kick off this product breakdown with an ingredient that most greens supplements are unfortunately missing, a healthy dose of fiber!

    If you eat whole fruits and veggies, they normally contain various micronutrients, along with a good amount of fiber. Thus, if a greens product is lacking additional fiber, it’s likely you’ll experience gastrointestinal issues.

    The main source of fiber in SuperGreens comes from Acacia, but it’s also accompanied by the functionality of the SuperShroom blend, which we discuss later on. Acacia is known as a soluble and prebiotic fiber, it’s extracted from the sap of the Acacia Senegal tree.

    Soluble vs Insoluble Fiber

    There are two main types of fiber contained in various foods, soluble and insoluble. Soluble fiber dissolves easily in water and forms a gel-like substance in the gut. Insoluble fiber doesn’t dissolve, and thus is said to remain intact as it flows through the digestive tract.

    Both sources are important and should be included in your diet for optimal health. Some good sources of soluble fiber include acacia, oatmeal, and various fruits. Insoluble sources of fiber consist of whole grains, beans, nuts, and various veggies.

    Benefits of Prebiotic Fiber

    Glaxon Goon Toons Ben

    “This is impossible, greens are supposed to taste horrible, how did you do this?”

    A prebiotic fiber is “a nondigestible compound that, through its metabolization by microorganisms in the gut, modulates the composition and/or activity of the gut microbiota, thus conferring a beneficial physiologic effect on the host.”[1] Research shows, there are several benefits to consuming adequate amounts of prebiotic fiber,[2] such as:

    • Increased amount of good bacteria, including Bifidobacteria and Lactobacilli
    • Increased calcium absorption
    • Increased production of beneficial metabolites
    • Improved immune system functioning
    • Positive effects on gut barrier permeability
    • Decreased allergy risk
    • Decreased protein fermentation[2]

    As you can see, getting enough dietary fiber each day is crucial for helping maintain good gut health. For most people, 25-30g of fiber should be consumed each day, thus one serving of Super Greens knocks out a good chunk of that by providing 5g to give you a head start!

  • Green Balance Alkalizing Blend – 5g

    Now that we’ve discussed the importance of fiber, let’s see what the Green Balance Alkalizing Blend has in store! We’re going to get a little nerdy in this section, so stick with us, and just know that the main star of the show here is good ol’ chlorophyll.

    The Green Balance Alkalizing Blend was formulated by Nature’s Power Nutraceuticals, a leading supplier of potent nutraceuticals and botanical extracts. It features several ingredients, such as wheatgrass, oat grass, alfalfa grass, kale, spirulina, and chlorella. All of these ingredients are rich in chlorophyll due to their green color, however why is that important?

    “Chlorophyll More like Borophyll”

    If you’ve ever watched Billy Madison, featuring Adam Sandler, then you know exactly what scene this quote is from.

    Now back to business…

    The Importance of Chlorophyll

    Glaxon SuperGreens Lab

    Glaxon SuperGreens were formulated to boost your health and performance!

    Chlorophyll is the reason why plants are green, and it’s also responsible for making greens so difficult to flavor. That doesn’t sound so great right now, but keep reading because it’s very beneficial.

    Chlorophylls are colored, conjugated polyenes, which play a crucial role in photosynthesis, a process used by plants to convert sunlight, water, and carbon dioxide into glucose and oxygen.

    Without chlorophylls, photosynthesis would be impaired and the plant would die, thus it’s essential for the plants’ survival.

    Some people may think drinking a greens powder can ‘detoxify’ or increase the pH of the body to make it less acidic. However, greens have very little effect on the body’s total pH levels, but they can help catalyze several important reactions in the body that result in an ‘alkalizing’ effect. And the main key compound in this whole equation is chlorophyll.

    Chlorophylls’ Structure: The Tetrapyrrole

    Let’s explain how powerful chlorophylls can be and how they work. Chlorophylls are more broadly classified as tetrapyrroles based on their structure. Tetrapyrroles consist of 5-sided rings containing nitrogen coordinated around a centralized metal atom.[3] Other tetrapyrroles, referred to as porphyrins, chlorins, and corrins, include heme and cobalamin, also known as vitamin B12.[3] All of these molecules share the same structure, however the centralized metal atom varies. For example, vitamin B12’s centralized metal atom is cobalt (Co), whereas heme’s is iron (Fe), and chlorophyll’s is magnesium (Mg).

    But how are tetrapyrroles linked to health benefits?

    The Alkalizing Effect of Tetrapyrroles
    Glaxon SuperGreens Orchard Ice Tea Close Up

    A greens powder that actually tastes good…

    Research shows chlorophyll and other tetrapyrroles can activate phase two enzymes within the body.[4] The main phase two enzymes include: catalase, superoxide dismutase, and glutathione s-transferase. They are responsible for inducing endogenous antioxidant activity by catalyzing specific reactions. Although phase two enzymes won’t completely change your body’s pH, they can help neutralize free radicals, which are acidic in nature.[4] Therefore, in a more localized environment, there can be an alkalizing effect from the phase two enzymes, which get activated by the chlorophylls that come from the ingredients inside SuperGreens’ Green Balance Alkalizing Blend.

    Greens and Performance

    Not only can activation of phase two enzymes benefit your health by protecting your cells from free-radicals, they can also boost performance by helping buffer lactic acid. Lactic acid build-up occurs when our bodies cannot clear the metabolic waste by-products fast enough. This leads to a “back-up” in our energy systems, and our ability to create ATP quickly plateaus. Therefore, we fatigue because we’ve run out of our cell’s energy currency.

    Now, this is inevitable, but having a supplement that can help buffer lactic acid for longer will amplify your performance!

  • Watermelon (Citrullus Lanatus) Powder – 1g

    Glaxon SuperGreens Ad

    We thought Super Greens were going to be good, but not this good!

    Watermelon powder, also known as Citrullus Lanatus, is rich in essential nutrients that offer a host of health benefits, but it also has a high amount of citrulline which can boost performance! We typically see L-Citrulline or Citrulline Malate in various pre workout supplements, because it’s one of the best ingredients to help increase blood flow and thus, get a bigger pump!

    Instead of just taking citrulline on it’s own, co-ingesting it with watermelon provides some unique benefits. A research study conducted in 2013, showed watermelon juice mixed with citrulline resulted in faster recovery than just taking citrulline on its own.[5] After the results were in, the researchers looked into why this occurred, and ended up discovering the watermelon increased the absorption of the citrulline.[5] We all know the body cannot use some efficiently if you can’t absorb it.

    Watermelon also has high amounts of vitamin C and A, which can have an anti-inflammatory effect. Therefore, this ingredient may be able to boost your health and recovery, leading to better performance overall!

  • SuperShrooms Multi-Strain Mushroom Blend – 1g

    SuperShrooms is a functional mushroom blend that not only serves as a source of prebiotic fiber, but also can enhance performance in a variety of ways.

    As we mentioned earlier, acacia is the main source, but not the only source of fiber in Super Greens. Mushrooms contain various carbohydrates, which are efficiently utilized as prebiotics in the gut.[6] The carbohydrates include: chitin, hemicellulose, beta- and alpha-glucans, mannans, xylans, and galactans.[6]

    The fungi prebiotics, along with acacia, can also help boost your immune system by decreasing endogenous pathogens in the digestive system.[7]

    SuperShrooms and Performance

    Introducing: Glaxon

    PricePlow’s supplement brand to watch for 2020 is no other than Glaxon!

    Acting as a great prebiotic fiber is not all SuperShroom can do! This mushroom blend contains several fungi that have been linked to increased performance,[8-10] such as Maitake Mushroom (Grifola frondosa), Cordyceps militaris, Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum), King Trumpet (Pleurotus eryngii), Shiitake (Lentinula edodes), Lion’s Mane (Hericium erinaceus), and Turkey Tail (Coriolus versicolor).

    Researchers have started to become more interested in assessing mushroom blends effects on performance. However, it’s important to note that the research clearly shows, these mushrooms need to be consumed for an extended period before noticing major benefits, whether that’s cognitive or physical.

    Studies have shown that in as little as two weeks, participants have improved VO2Max and time to exhaustion.[8] Dosages used for studies showing significant improvements in performance have ranged from 1-12g per day.[8]

    The consensus seems to be that a variety of dosages are effective, but chronic use is ideal for the best results.[8,9] This also is in agreement with other studies, which found the most significant improvements were seen after 12-weeks of supplementation, when assessing the effectiveness of other mushrooms on performance.[10]

    Mushrooms and Recovery

    When you’re in the gym hammering away at the weights, microtears are created in the muscle fibers. Then afterwards, if we feed our bodies with proper nutrition and give them adequate rest, they will repair, rebuild, and grow even stronger. What most people don’t know is this is actually an inflammatory response. We normally think inflammation is a bad thing and should be limited at all costs. However not all inflammation is bad — it’s a crucial process towards recovery.

    Lion's Mane

    Lion’s Mane is an incredible mushroom that touts some extremely unique benefits!

    What does this have to do with mushrooms? Well, these little powerful fungi have been shown to increase immune system function and specifically, phagocytic activity.[11,12]

    The immune system has several cells, called phagocytes which include neutrophils and macrophages.[13] These cells are essential for “cleaning up the debris’ caused by muscle damage. This is a necessary step in order to properly repair the muscle. For example, if you want to start building a house, but there’s brush and garbage all over the place, you need to clean that up before starting to build.

    Therefore, if mushrooms can increase the activation of these immune cells, then it’s possible you will recover faster. There still needs to be more research done on this topic, and Joey Savage from Glaxon understands this. However, mushrooms have too many benefits to not include them in Super Greens.

  • Betta Berries – 500mg

    Greens are not the only thing that Super Greens contains, it also includes several fruits including Betta Berries (discussed here) as well as tart cherry and pomegranate (discussed below).

    Betta Berries are first up on our list – in general, berries offer several health benefits. Research shows that berries are loaded with antioxidants, which help us battle against free radicals, improves inflammatory markers, and can have positive effects on our lipid profile and glycemic response.[14]

    The Power of Anthocyanins

    Most people are familiar with different types of berries, such as raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries. The biggest difference between them besides shape, is their color! What makes one berry red and one purple, depends on how much anthocyanins they contain. Anthocyanins in berries are similar to chlorophyll in green plants, they give the plant or berry it’s color, but they also have other benefits.

    BettaBerries LogoAnthocyanins seem to have a profound effect on increasing blood flow, via vasodilation. Several studies show they can promote the activation of endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS).[15-17] This enzyme is responsible for converting L-arginine into Nitric Oxide (NO) and L-citrulline. Ultimately, NO is what leads to vasodilation, greater blood flow, nutrient delivery, and waste product removal. Thus, greater levels of eNOS could lead to better pumps, because of the increased amounts of NO that are synthesized.

    If you’re taking a pre workout supplement that already has ingredients like L-citrulline for pumps, then Super Green’s may even help get a greater effect out of those ingredients because of increasing eNOS levels. Enhanced blood flow can also lead to better recovery and performance, because greater amounts of nutrients are being delivered to the working muscles and metabolic waste products can be cleared more efficiently.

    BettaBerries for the win!

    Super Greens doesn’t just have any old berry blend, they have Betta Berries! This is another trademarked ingredient from Nature’s Power Nutraceuticals, assured to be of high quality and rigorously tested for safety, potency, and purity. The main active constituents in this blend include AcaiVida, Acerola, Amla, Goji, JabuVital, Mangosteen, MaquiForza, Pomegranate, Strawberry, and XandraPure. All of these berries are known for being rich in both phyto-nutrients and antioxidants,[18] so you know it’s a solid blend.

  • Tart Cherry (Prunus cerasus) as [CherryPure] – 500mg

    CherryPure LogoNext up on our list of fruits contained in Super Greens is tart cherry, as CherryPure. This ingredient consists of pure montmorency tart cherry powder and is a registered trademark of Shoreline Fruit. Tart Cherries are known for containing high amounts of vitamin C and anthocyanins, but they also may have their own unique mechanisms that benefit recovery.

    Glaxon’s main goal with Super Greens was to create a greens supplement that could also increase performance, so CherryPure was an obvious choice to include. CherryPure has been shown to have positive effects on recovery and soreness in both resistance training and endurance events.[19,20]

    To examine the acute effects of CherryPure supplementation, researchers had participants only take CherryPure seven days before, the day of, and two days after a intense resistance training session.[19] They found participants had decreased perceptions of muscle soreness and markers of muscle breakdown (catabolism).[19] However, in this study, they were not able to identify the exact mechanism of how CherryPure expressed its positive effects.

    Therefore, another study was conducted in an attempt to tease out the mechanism of how CherryPure works.[20] The researchers found that endurance-trained participants who supplemented with CherryPure had reduced markers of muscle catabolism, immune and inflammatory stress, better maintained redox balance, and increased performance.[20] The researchers hypothesized these positive effects are do to a lower cortisol response during exercise and thus, reduced pro-inflammatory markers.[20]

    Overall CherryPure is a solid ingredient that can help you recover from both resistance and aerobic training.

  • Pomegranate (Punica granatum) Extract – 400mg

    Glaxon Orchard Ice Tea SuperGreens

    SuperGreens is out of this world.

    Keeping performance in mind, Glaxon included another ingredient that helps promote blood flow to give your working muscles the nutrients they need. Pomegranate extract (PE) naturally contains high amounts of nitrates and polyphenols which are attributed to its cardiovascular effects.[21]

    A research study done in 2014 was conducted to assess the effects of PE on blood flow and running time to exhaustion.[21] They found ingestion of PE lead to enhanced blood vessel diameter, blood flow, and delayed fatigue during exercise.[21] Therefore, they concluded PE was an effective ergogenic aid.

  • Sunflower (Helianthus annuus) Lecithin – 200mg

    Sunflower lecithin is a common addition to several products, most notably protein powders, since it helps improve mixability. However, sunflower lecithin may also result in a cognitive boost because it contains phosphatidylcholine (PC).

    PCs play several essential roles in the body, they’re one of the most abundant phospholipids in mammalian cell membranes, therefore they are needed to maintain a cell’s structural integrity.[22] PCs can also help boost acetylcholine levels in the brain, which will give us better focus, mind-muscle connection, and memory.[22] So with this ingredient, you may get an extra cognitive boost, which will lead to better performance in the gym.

  • Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera [Std. for 2.5% Withanolides])(Root) – 200mg

    Glaxon Joey Savage Choline

    Why is Joey pouring sunflower seeds all over a dead fish? To help explain choline of course!

    One thing that can quickly lead to poor performance and health is excessive stress. Therefore, several supplements have been created with ingredients such as ancient herbs and adaptogens, that are designed to help lower stress and improve health. Ashwagandha is a very popular inclusion in these supplements, because of how effective it is at reducing stress.

    Ashwagandha, also known as Withania somnifera, is a herb that’s been widely used in Ayurvedic medicine. Ashwagandha is a potent adaptogen, which means it helps your body deal with stress and adapt by regulating various physiological processes during periods of excessive stress.[23]

    In addition to helping us handle high stress situations, research shows ashwagandha has anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective, adaptogenic, memory-enhancing, hematopoietic, sleep-inducing, and anxiolytic properties.[23]

    In conclusion, this is a powerful herb that’s been used for thousands of years, and has research to back it up!

  • Black Pepper (Piper nigrum) 4:1 Extract (Fruit) – 100mg

    What’s black pepper extract doing in a greens product?

    It’s included to enhance absorption and bioavailability of all the beneficial ingredients we’ve discussed so far! It’s well established that if your body can’t absorb something, then it will just pass right through you and not cause any effects. When you’re taking a supplement that’s definitely not ideal. You want to give your body the best chance it can to absorb all the ingredients for maximum effects.

    Black pepper extract is a great source of piperine, which is a molecule that can help prevent various enzymes in your body from breaking down other drugs and nutrients you ingest,[24] such as supplements. Black pepper extract started out as a popular addition to curcurmin, but now it’s found in several products because of how effective it is.

Available Flavors: The Best Tasting Greens on Planet Earth?

Glaxon SuperGreens Best Tasting Greens

We have no idea how they made greens taste this good.

Most people absolutely despise greens supplements because they can’t stand the taste. So they will try to mask the flavor in some way, like putting it in a smoothie or shake. However, that can be inconvenient, and you’ll be less likely to take your greens daily if you dread it. Glaxon knows, regardless of how beneficial Super Greens are, if it tastes terrible, you won’t take it.

Let’s be real though, greens are never going to taste as delicious as a pre workout or amino acid supplement. But, Glaxon did an excellent job at flavoring Super Greens, and we have to give them some serious credit. This is a product you’ll have no problem consuming each day, which will lead to better results, since you’re less likely to skip out on taking it.

Here’s an updated list of all Glaxon Super Greens’ flavors:
