Don's recommendations:

I advise a minimum of two heaping tablespoons a day (more if ill). This equals approximately 32 grams a day, which is about four bottles per month of Daily Green Boost.

Like most green powders, the bottle will say to mix with water. But a watery liquid is treated as water by the stomach, so the stomach will allow the mixture to pass through it into the small intestines where it will zoom through to get to the large intestines where water is meant to be absorbed. But the small intestines are where nutrients are absorbed, normally from semi-solid food that passes through it slowly compared to water (since water contains no nutrients, there is no need and therefore no mechanism to make water pass through the small intestines slowly). So, as with juices, you're not getting as much nutrition out of a liquid meal as most people believe, even though the nutrients are "concentrated" (a little known fact about juicing that most people aren't aware of).

To get the most nutrition out of a green powder meal, I'd mix it with solid food, like in a smoothie. Bananas make for a good combination.

Other tips for maximal nutrient absorption: "Chew" each mouthful of smoothie; don't swallow a smoothie quickly just because you can. Chewing is what signals the brain to make digestive juices in the stomach, and chewing mixes saliva with what you're eating, and saliva is involved in the processing of fats and protein. So even if you're drinking a juice, don't consume it as you would water. Swish it around in the mouth before swallowing. If you feel you will look weird doing this, either consume your smoothies and juices in private, or simply don't care what other people think. :)
