If your social media feeds look anything like mine, you’ve seen an advertisement or two (or dozens) for different brands of greens powders and “mud” drink powders, which aren’t actually made of mud but mushrooms.

These products promise loads of nutrients in a convenient drink, but I was curious what experts thought. So I asked registered dietitians whether these powders are worth buying.

“While powered wellness drinks are very popular, seem convenient and may be portrayed as being ‘healthier’ than alternatives, a lot of the time these drinks are purely marketing ploys,” says Jenna Litt, of Lenox Hill Hospital in New York. 

While these drinks may provide additional micronutrients, they are not providing anyone with all of their daily micronutrient needs, Litt adds.
