I have not been paid to write this review. These are products that I have been using since before I started writing this blog. This review is my honest opinion and has not been influenced by Hion in any way. Hion kindly donated the competition prize free of charge but have not seen this post prior to publishing.
So why am I writing it? Because it’s a product that I believe in and feel that it will benefit other people too and I have always said that this blog will be an honest account of how I eat and train.

I am very careful about which supplements I spend my money on and try not to get suckered into every health product going because it is not affordable, sustainable or necessary.
However at a time when I was over trained and feeling drained a friend (who is a pro bikini competitor) recommended that I tried these as she felt they were really helping her through her cutting period.
I was also looking for a natural product to replace my daily multi vitamin drink that was full of additives and artificial sweeteners.
There are 2 powders: Purple and Green.
The purple powder is a blend of
Acai Berry, Raspberry, Garcinia Cambogia, Cranberry Extract (50:1), Lingonberry Extract (4:1), Blueberry, Goji Berry, Bilberry, Pomegranate, Green Coffee Extract (50% CGA**), Green Tea Extract (4:1, 46% Polyphenols), Apple Cider Vinegar (37% Titration), Montmorency Cherry, Rosehip, Flaxseed & Beetroot.
It has a long list of vitamins and minerals and contains the same amount of caffeine as a cup of instant coffee so is great for a boost in the mornings or as a pre-workout booster.
The green powder is a blend of
Raspberry Ketones, Acai Berry, Green Tea Extract, Wheatgrass, Barley Grass, Spirulina, Chlorella, Maca Root, Baobab, Lucuma & Flax Seed
Again packed with nutrients and is a great after lunch boost.
I really like these products, they are a great way of boosting the nutrient content of your diet and still maintaining a clean eating lifestyle. I will continue to prioritise them in my supplements regimen. It’s always hard to ascertain what in your diet is making you feel good or bad but I really do think that these have a positive effect on me.
They are not cheap but there are good discounts if you buy in bundles from Hion and sometimes there are half price offers on amazon too so its worth shopping around and keeping a lookout. If you follow Hion on social media you will often see what deals they have on.
You can take both of the powders mixed into a little water. They are not the most pleasant thing you are ever going to taste but having tried lots of different powders before they are definitely the most pleasant that I have tried. I find them a bit better mixed into some unsweetened almond milk.
They are however great mixed into smoothies and Chia Puddings and I have lots of recipes for you to try here: (these can all be made without the powders if you are on a budget)
