Genuine Health products

I had no idea until recently that I’d been using Genuine Health products for years. Greens+ Kids has been a mainstay in our fridge since The K Man was a toddler; around here, it’s called “Magic Juice.” But that’s not all the brand makes. Let me tell you more…

Genuine Health Fast Pain Relief+

When I broke my ankle last summer, some smart cookie at Genuine Health’s PR agency reached out to see if I’d like to try a bottle of its natural pain reliever, Fast Pain Relief+, and its Fast Joint Care+ with Fermented Tumeric. My first inclination is always to go natural before introducing over-the-counter or prescription medication. I’ll stave off a cold with oil of oregano, heal bruises with arnica or use vitamin E on a cut, but I was pretty clueless about natural pain care.

Gluten-free, non-GMO and soy-free, Fast Pain Relief+ is a bit of a wonder drug. It’s made with a proprietary ingredient called Biovaflex, which is egg membrane — giving your body the nutrients essential for proper joint health and important proteins like collagen and elastin. It also has Devil’s Claw and White Willow Bark; the former is proven to work well to relieve back pain and the latter works in your body like Aspirin, only better.

Tumeric is one of those miracle spices. And one of its medicinal properties is as an anti-inflammatory. You’d be hard-pressed to consume enough tumeric on your own, much less find fermented tumeric, so concentrated into these capsules the way Genuine Health presents it is the way to go.

It’s hard to say whether or not these products helped get me back on my foot any faster, but they did help with pain relief. In fact, I still take the Fast Pain Relief+ when I get a headache and it works as well as Tylenol or Advil for me.

Genuine Health Greens+ Kids

This one probably doesn’t need much of an introduction because the Greens+ line might be Genuine Health’s most recognized product, that you have no idea is actually from Genuine Health! The kids’ version is the only one we’ve ever had, and my kids love it. We aren’t a big fan of giving them juice, and they have no idea that when I mix a scoop of Greens+ Kids powder with half a cup of water that it isn’t actually juice. SUCKERS!

Featuring superfoods and ingredients rich in phytonutrients and antioxidants, Greens+ products pass both the flavour and nutrition test in our house.

Genuine Health Fermented Organic Gut Superfoods+

This product really surprised me. I’ve taken probiotics on and off enough over the years to know the importance of gut health and the role that fermented foods play in it. But I’d never had a PREbiotic or found a flavoured probiotic that I’ve enjoyed — until this one. I had the Orange Ginger flavour and it has a very distinct orange zing to it. When I mix it with my Arbonne chocolate protein powder each morning, it tastes like a liquid version of Terry’s Chocolate Orange!

In case you’re wondering, probiotics are the good bacteria and keep your gut in good health, while prebiotics are healthy carbs that the human body can’t digest — they feed the probiotics.

There are 21 organic plant-based superfoods — such as organic spirulina, organic black currant, organic sea buckthorn and organic bitter melon —  in the Genuine Health Fermented Organic Gut Superfoods+. One scoop delivers polyphenols, bloat-free prebiotic fibre and vegan-friendly nourishment. If we go out for a “cheat meal” on a Saturday night, it’s a must for me to have a healthy smoothie on Sunday morning with this stuff.

  2. Linda says

  5. Lisa S says

    I love Genuine Health products and have been using their greens+ extra energy and their multi+ JOY for years now. Once my current protein powder is finished I plan on incorporating the fermented protein as well as the fermented superfoods into my diet. I had no idea about the fast pain relief, I just broke my wrist and I think I will go get some of these now – TODAY lol. Genuine Health is for sure my most trusted go to brand out there.

  6. Tabby72 says

    I like the idea of the Fermented Superfood +, as it has so much pre-biotic goodness. I’m working on improving my gut health!

  7. says

    I am very interested in the Fermented Organic Gut Superfoods+. as I have read articles about the gut being the second brain in the body. I have used Genuine Greens for some time and just throw them in my morning smoothie.

  8. Sarahjferg says

    Probiotics are so important to everyones health. I would love to try Genuine Health Fermented Organic Gut Superfoods+.

  9. Brian Hwang says

    Until I started taking probiotics, I could not tolerate dairy in any form. I still can’t have straight milk and avoid it, but with the assistance of probiotics, I can somehow enjoy cheese, ice cream and dairy in baked goods without issue. I’d be excited to try the Genuine Health Fermented Organic Gut Superfoods+. After all, gut health has been linked to mental health too!

  10. Erin N says

    I’m excited to Genuine Health’s products! I like drinking greens every morning, in a smoothie or by themselves, even if they aren’t too tasty 😛 Thank you so much for the giveaway! These look like quality products, and have a great weekend! :)

  11. Tiesha Schmuland says

    I have recently changed my diet and tried to become more aware of what I put in my body and how it affects me. The natural pain relief is really interesting. I will be trying to learn more about that!

  12. Leanne says

    Thanks for the awesome review and giveaway . I would love to try the natural pain relief . I do landscaping which can cause a lot of muscle and back pain but I refuse to take Tylenol or Advil. Love to find something natural that works .

  13. Calvin says

    I am a fan of the superfoods and the prebiotic+probiotics. I use lots of greens products already currently with protein and add them into smoothies.

  14. Anne Derkat says

    As an active senior I’m always interested in anything that contributes to my health and that of my husband. Would love to try these products.

  15. Suzanne says

    I’d love to try it out, haven’t seen a product with 21 organic plant-based super foods on the market before and for sure impresses me.

  16. Belinda Skuta says

    The SuperFoods tub sounds really good! I’ve heard of spirulina and read a little bit about it but then totally forgot about it until reading your post. Quick question, are the products safe to take if you are pregnant? I assume they would be but it’s always best to ask first. Thanks for the chance!

  17. Sarah says

    I’m interested in the natural pain relief for my headaches. I didn’t even know there was a natural option. Will have to definitely give it a try.

  18. Jaimeem says

    I would love to try their superfoods, I make smoothies often and this and the greens+ would both be great additives to them.

  19. April LeighAnn Keller says

    I would love to try some of these products too! I have just recently decided I need to start supplementing my diet with vitamins or something to stay healthy. :) Good luck to all.

  20. Anu Chopra says

    I would love to try the Fast Pain Relief as I need to be pain-free as quick as possible to look after my family.

  21. Jay Nelson says

    We sometimes dose ourselves with probiotics but with some recent reading my husband did we have come to learn we need to do more with our prebiotics. We tend to eat a lot of bran which I understand is hard on the probiotics so we need to do our best with prebiotics. My husband and one of my children have gut problems and a healthy eco-system is part of our helping as best as we can. Thank you (I would also love to slip more greens into the children’s diet – particularly my son’s.

  22. Dana Miller says

    I’ve been reading so much lately about sea buckthorn and tumeric. I would love for my family to try these products. It would be amazing to find an effective product to ease pain in my hips, back, knees, thighs and wrists. Geez, I am falling apart!

  23. Joni says

    I’d love to win the Fast Pain Relief for my mom. She’s always aching. And I need to get the Superfoods one. I have gut issues.

  24. Susan d says

    Interested in trying the pain relief +, have tried tumeric supplements and would love to see how it compares and always wanted to try the green + line

  25. Cathy Oppedisano says

    I have not tried these particular products but I would love to try them. I used to try to cook with turmeric many years ago but never did like the taste it imparted to the dish. Most recently however, I tried a sample of a new turmeric tea at my health food store and they somehow made it taste so yummy with a touch of sweetness to it that I’m going to reconsider turmeric all together.

  26. Wanda Macsween says

    I would love the opportunity to try these and to see if it would help my daughters with their migraines.

  27. says

    I’m really interested in the pain relief + for my headaches. I’ve never heard of it before. I’d rather go natural first as well before over the counter stuff.

  28. says

    I’ve been wanting to try their SuperFoods line. I drink a chocolate protein shake most mornings, and the Orange Ginger sounds like it would go really well with the chocolate.

  29. Heather says

    Interesting!! I am curious about the Pain Relief one. I get wicked headaches and buy Extra Strength Advil at Costco because I have to take 3 to give me any relief! (My poor liver!!) so you can just pick me as the winner and we are good! 😉

  30. Amy B says

    I take antibiotics to treat late stage Lyme disease and need probiotics to protect my gut. I am sure prebiotics wouldn’t hurt. Any pain relief would be great too. Tumeric has been a great ally in fighting joint pain for me so I am open to trying new products that contain it.

  31. Elizabeth Vlug says

    I have taken the Genuine Health Fast Pain Relief+ with very good results for my knee pain after playing badminton. And I do take a probiotic but never really thought of taking a prebiotic, but it makes sense. Thanks for your review and of course the giveaway too.

  32. Jennifer Morse says

    I’d love to try the natural pain relief. I’m having a knee issue right now that’s really painful (X-ray and ultrasound tomorrow!) but don’t like to take Advil and Tylenol around the clock. I’ll have to give it a try!

  33. Mary says

    2018 has been all about gut health for me. I’ve spent most of last year feeling terrible when a friend of mine suggested making a few small changes to my diet. I’m very interested in the Fermented organic gut superfoods+…it’s packed with so much goodness! The Orange Ginger flavour sounds pretty good to me.
