    Greens Plus - what is the deal with this stuff?

    For those of you not familiar with the product: http://www.greensplus.com/ Greens Plus is a nutritional supplement that blends hippy nonsense words and science. I have known people who took it and reported remarkable effects, including greatly increased energy levels and feeling well-rested after 1-3 hours less sleep per night (and not showing any negative effects). However, those who took it in time reported that they no longer felt good, now slept just as much as previously, and when they stopped taking it, actually ended up worse than when they started (as measured by their subjective "how good I feel" index and by how long they slept each night). Does anyone know what the deal is? Is this a thing one ought to take if one can afford it? I can't find any relable studies or science regarding it, but surely someone out there knows more.
    "[Fighting for Points] is doubtless very pretty, and invariably draws applause, but preferences should always be given to blows that do some business, to good straight hits that do something toward finishing the fight.
    A man who has carefully trained for brilliant tapping play, will find himself considerably out of it in case he is called upon to do any real work."

    that would be my guess too.

    "well rested with only 1-3 hours sleep at night" in the absence of an ingredient like caffeine, guarana, etc ... makes me think placebo.

    I take it

    It's a decent vitamin supplement not a miracle cure.

    I am sure there's a placebo effect but you'll get that in any "Vitamin"

    I take it on powder form and mix it in my after workout shake. I also take BCAA's and Omega 3 fish oil (blech) and some crondroitin claucasuimine and a protein powder.

    Cumulative I notice a difference, but it also has to a lot do with eating healthier and excercising more in general.

    It's 1-3 hours less sleep, not 1-3 total.
