The premium greens market is dynamic and rapidly growing, with such an expanding market it's hard to know which product can be most effective and beneficial for you.

  • vybey is approx. half of the price of AG1 (per 100g)

Braincare Ingredients Comparison

The defining feature of our Braincare Smart Greens product is the vast array of ingredients that were included in order to help directly support brain health, this is something that Athletic Greens does not offer. The brain is the most important organ in the body, and taking care of it is essential to maintaining your overall health and well-being. At vybey we want to provide our vybers with as diverse a selection of our Braincare Smart Greens as possible with: nutrient-dense vegetable and herb extract, super fruit blend, and digestive and mushroom blend. There are multiple benefits to consuming these braincare ingredients including supporting brain health, increased immunity, improved digestion, improved heart health, stronger bones and increased energy.

Focusing on just the brain care benefits, ingredients such as Algal Omega 3 powder, blueberry extract, grapefruit extract, spinach and kale, Alfalfa, chlorella, hemp protein, rhodiola rosea root extract, matcha green tea powder and Peruvian maca root powder all play a vital role in the development and maintenance of the brain. Helping to support its structure and function such as improving memory, focus, and cognitive function[1].

Each ingredient is able to aid the function and maintenance of brain health in different ways, for example, spinach and kale help regulate neurotransmitter production as well as promote the growth of nerve cells[2]. Whilst chlorella powder has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that may help protect against damage caused by free radicals[3]. With such incredible benefits it's easy to see why we at vybey believed this to be an essential attribute to include in our premium greens powder, as well one that arguably makes it a more valuable product than Athletic Greens.

Here are the specific amounts of the brain care focussed ingredients that AG1 does not have:

  • Omega 3 DHA vegan (380mg)
  • Blueberry extract (100mg)
  • Grapefruit extract (200mg)
  • Vitamin D
  • Vitamin B Complex

Probiotic Comparison

Compared to vybey, Athletic Greens offer less probiotics such as Bacillius Coagulans, offering 0.6 bn CFU which is almost half of what vybey offers at 1 bn CFU. Probiotics are an important ingredient within premium greens powders as they are a healthy form of bacteria that can help to improve gut health by restoring the balance of bacteria in your gut, as well as improving digestion[4]. However, Athletic Greens limited supply of probiotics within its product can mean it will have no real benefits, as registered dietitian Ella Davar suggests that a reasonable dose of probiotics is anywhere between 1-30 bn CFU[5]. Therefore, suggesting that in order for you to ascertain your recommended amount of probiotics, you might then need to seek additional supplements whereas with Braincare Smart Greens you do not. 

Price Comparison

As previously mentioned, the price discrepancy between the two products is very significant, and an additional factor that showcases the superiority of Braincare Smart Greens compared to Athletic Greens.  Braincare Smart Greens costs just $89 for 360g whilst Athletic Greens in Australia costs almost double at $189, you would be able to purchase nearly 2 x 360g orders of the Braincare Smart Greens for almost the same price. This would therefore, mean you’re getting double your money's worth compared to if you were to purchase one singular packet of the Athletic Greens. Not to mention the added braincare focussed ingredients in vybey!

Here at vybey we wanted to not only ensure we were giving you a premium product but also at a bargain price. We understand how important it is to take care of your brain and body and we didn't want anyone to be excluded from this opportunity.

Furthermore, at vybey we work alongside a brilliant charity called Mary’s Meals who supply children all over the world with a nutritious meal within their place of education[6]. At vybey our social purpose is incredibly important to us, and we believe we should be doing as much as we can, that's why with every purchase made with us we donate one meal via Mary’s Meals. 

Sodium (Salt) comparison 

As we all know, high intake of sodium in our diet can be bad for us, leading to high blood pressure which increases the chances of cardiovascular disease and strokes, it has also been found to reduce our intake of calcium[7]. This can lead many to question why it is added to food by manufacturers in the first place, and this is because it increases the shelf life of the product, preserving the food prior to refrigeration[8].

However, as seen in the table below vybey includes 0.2g of sodium within our Braincare Smart Greens product compared to AG1s 1g, this equates to almost 5 times as much.

Sodium (Salt)




The consumption of salt in Australia and the UK is far greater than the recommended daily intake by healthcare professionals, with the average adult consuming 8g compared to the suggested 6g[9]. Therefore, monitoring the sodium content in all products can benefit us all greatly and opting for a premium greens product that offers 5 times less sodium than its competitor can be a start.

AG1 Athletic Greens in Australia

Purchasing AG1 Athletic Greens in Australia can be troublesome as it has to be imported. Even then there can be some delays with customs. That’s why having a super greens product like vybey on the ground in Australia is a lot more efficient as orders will be dispatched the same day if ordered before 11am from our warehouse in Brisbane.


The main objective of both vybey and AG1’s premium greens powders is to ensure that the consumer is supplied with all the essential nutrients and antioxidants in order to promote their health, as mentioned earlier they both achieve this. 

However, when selecting an option, it is more beneficial to choose one rich in both brain care ingredients and higher in probiotics as well as far cheaper in comparison, leaving you with a better valued product when choosing our Braincare Smart greens. Despite the claims in this article, we believe here at vybey we have and will continue to do so to serve our vybers with exceptional products at beneficial prices.  

Adding our braincare super greens to our vybey range has being the perfect complimentary product to our complete meal replacement shake in Australia. Our complete meal has been on the market for two years now and enjoyed by thousands across the country. Since two months of launch of our premium super greens braincare product, we have receive fantastic feedback so far and can’t wait to get it in the hands of more Australian vybers and beyond!
