Humann Heart, founded in 2009, is an American based health and wellbeing supplement brand. The brand is most well-known for its clinically-researched nitric oxide tablets, but it also produces impressive super foods powders.
The team behind the brand realizes that it can be difficult for people that lead busy lives to focus on the amount of greens they are consuming, as well as keeping track of their daily nutritional intake. Therefore, in 2018 the brand shared Humann Heart Greens with the world.
The Humann Heart Greens formula is the perfect solution for those that don’t have the correct intake of nutrition, vegetables, and fruits. The brand has a significant focus on ensuring its products can be consumed by an array of people, hence the product is vegetarian and vegan friendly, gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free and non-GMO. In addition, the formula is USDA certified organic.
The Humann Heart Greens mix contains organic superfoods that have their own specific health benefits, but overall, the product supplies a vast array of benefits to both the body and the mind. The mix supplements the consumer’s daily nutrition, due to all of the essential vitamins and minerals that are provided by the ingredients.
Humann claims that within just one scoop of the formula, the consumer receives 9 organic superfoods that help the body enter into an alkaline state of health. Alkaline diets are linked with a lower risk of illness and disease and aid with weight loss and boosted metabolism.
The formula also gives the consumer the dietary nitrate equivalent of 5 servings of fruit within one scoop. Nitrate is essential for the body and is one of the most important molecules for the cardiovascular system. It also boosts exercise performance, helps to manage diabetes and lowers blood pressure (1).
In addition, the formula provides the consumer with a long-lasting boost of energy, supports the health of the heart, increases circulation, supports a regulated and healthy blood pressure and decreases muscle pain.
Humann Heart Greens contains 12 ingredients in total. Out of these 12 ingredients, as mentioned previously, 9 of these are organic superfoods. The other ingredients are natural flavoring ingredients. The brand is incredibly transparent with the list of ingredients, showing it clearly both on the back of the tub and on the website.
Although, the brand uses proprietary blends within the formula. Proprietary blends aren’t as beneficial as having the exact measurement of each ingredient, because the power sits with the brand to put the correct amount of each ingredient into the formula to ensure health benefits will be derived from them. With proprietary blends, the consumer has to put all of their trust in the brand.
However, the brand is well-known and trusted, and with all of its ingredients being backed with scientific research, the consumer can put their trust in the formula. With only 9 super food ingredients, we can take a look at each of these ingredients to see the health benefits that derive from them.

Humann has focused immensely on the flavor of the Humann Heart Greens, and therefore it doesn’t taste as grassy as other super green powders. The formula is pleasant to drink and tastes quite sweet, but it does still retain an underlying natural taste.
It is easy to drink with water alone if you are used to drinking super food powders, but if not, it will taste better when mixed within a smoothie.
Humann Heart Greens can be purchased as a one-off, or you can choose to subscribe and receive the product once every month. You can also choose to order multiple tubs, which comes with a discount.
A tub of Humann Heart Greens is 150g (5.29oz), and the brand recommends using a serving size of 5g. The serving size is quite small, in comparison to what other competitor brands recommend. If you used the serving size, one tub of the product would last you 30 servings (30 days). However, if you choose to use a larger serving size, the formula will provide fewer servings than expected.
There are discounts for ordering multiple tubs or signing up to a subscription, so let’s take a look at the different cost options that are presented to the customer.
If you ordered on a one-time purchase:
- One tub from the Humann website will cost you $29.95. If you used the recommended serving size, the cost per serving would be $0.99.
- If you buy two tubs from the Humann website, you get one free. This will cost you $19.86 per unit. If you used the recommended serving size, the cost per serving would be $0.66.
- If you buy four tubs from the Humann website, you get two free. This will cost you $18.31 per unit. If you used the recommended serving size, the cost per serving would be $0.61.
If you ordered with a monthly subscription:
- One tub from the Humann website will cost you $27.95. If you used the recommended serving size, the cost per serving would be $0.93.

Regardless of which option you choose to purchase, this product is extremely cheap in comparison to other super greens powders on the market. If you like the product, it obviously works out more cost-effective to either order multiple tubs, or to sign up to a subscription.
Looking at third party websites to see unbiased reviews of the product, most of the reviews are extremely positive. Take a look at one of the positive reviews below:
I have a family history of heart-related problems. Heart attacks on both sides of the family, one resulting in death. In a result, I am careful with my heart-health and include some supplements in my diet that are good for your heart. HeartGreens is one of my favorites because in addition to being good for me it tastes fantastic! Really good in a smoothie and I also like to mix with 1/2 water 1/2 cranberry juice.
However, there are also more critical reviews about the product out there, mostly concerning the taste. Take a look at one of the negative reviews below:
You would be better off just eating a salad or greens. If you put it in a smoothie, you can’t mask the taste. It just completely takes over the flavor of your smoothie and it is not pleasant at all.
You can buy Humann Heart Greens from the Humann website, as well as third party supplement websites and Amazon. We always recommend purchasing supplements on a brand’s website. At the time of writing this article, the brand doesn’t sell products in high street stores.
Overall, Humann Heart Greens could be a cost-effective formula that has an array of health benefits.
We would liked to know the exact breakdown of the ingredients used and the lack of a transparent formula inhibits this.
The only thing that lets the product down could be the taste, but that is a matter of personal preference, and this product is nowhere near as strong or earthy as other super greens formulas.
