That Green Machine drink is an excellent option and is great, either by itself or if you want to add it to your smoothie. Great choice. But be careful of some of the others, though. You have to read the label of each Naked that you want to drink. Some are better than others. Some of their drinks (like the Blue Machine) contain niacinamide. This isnít generally bad, however, too much of it can cause problems with gallbladder, gout, and can exacerbate liver and kidney functioning. I don't know what the threshhold is and how much is too much. So I avoid it altogether.
Also, some of them, such as the Berry Veggie Power Garden for instance, contain an enzyme called pyridoxine hydrochloride (which is in the B6 family). This has been known to cause health complications. On the mild side it has caused nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, loss of appetite, headache, tingling, sleepiness in some people. On the more serious side, it has caused brain and nerve problems.
And some of their products contain milk (like the Protein Zone Double Berry, Protein Zone Banana Chocolate, or the Protein Zone Mango for instance) so they're not vegan.
But, many of the drinks are all natural ingredients. So, as long as you focus on those, you should be fine. Just read the labels carefully.
