    Pros: 

    Delicious & nutritious innovation in vitamins

    Cons: 

    Still new. Have only used it for a month.

    This is a new take on vitamins and they seem to be moving in the right direction! The product tastes good and provides the essentials. I take gem with so much less apprehension than a traditional vitamin. Can't wait to see what they come out with next and I look forward to a monthly or quarterly subcription model, so I don't need to think about ordering it when I run out.

  • Pros: 

    Comes in one nutrient packed energy bite. Easy to chew on in the morning while getting ready for the day.

    Cons: 

    Remember to rinse your mouth after you finish to get out any stubborn chia seeds :)

    It's so refreshing to be able to see the nutrients in the bite and understand where they come from. It's also great to not have to worry about purchasing a bunch of different supplements and rest assured that everything I need is in this one bite.

    Pros: 

    great flavor, all natural, actual food!

    Cons: 

    Only been using it for two weeks so far

    I used to take 10+ pills for supplements everymorning, and considered switching to powder. However, then, I found out about GEM! I love the fact that I can get most of the vitamins/minerals/adaptogens I need (D, B12, Spirulina, etc) from an actually natural, food like vitamin. I look forward to waking up and eating it because it tastes so delicious! Sometimes, I'll eat it twice a day when I get a sweet craving.

  • Pros: 

    Made with real raw food

    Cons: 

    Want to eat more than one a day

    Beautiful packaging and brilliant idea to turn the multi Vitamin into something you can chew and eat. The ladies at our office love the taste. So much that it’s almost like a dessert.

    Pros: 

    It's not another synthetic yucky, ugly pill! So nice to get all my essential nutrition from real, whole food -- in one bite! Def try it!!!!

    Cons: 

    Still new, so none yet. Daily cost feels a tad expensive relative to other nutrition health supplements (collagen, protein, bone broth, etc)

    I love taking my GEM in the morning! I already take a few other medications, so it's so nice not to have to take another huge pill for my vitamin. It's also nice to have a little something nourishing first thing when I wake up before I work out. Plus the jar looks great sitting out on my vanity - don't have to worry about hiding it away in my pantry :)

    Pros: 

    Love that they are not pills and tastes great

    Cons: 

    Might get some green teeth

    Amazing idea, I never take supplements because of the pill format and I overdose on sugary gummy bears whenever I do take them!

    The packaging is designed in a way that is easy to carry, beautiful to display. I don’t mind the green mouth - easy to rinse by drinking some Water. definitly feel more energy throughout the day.

  • Pros: 

    Makes it easy for me to get my daily vitamin fix in a new way. It also has the “other” boosts I need- spirulina, algae, mushrooms, etc.

    Cons: 

    They remind me of a bar so hard to not eat a few as a snack.

    Unlike previous vitamins and supplements, these do not hurt my stomach at all or give me that nauseous vitamin feeling. The bites are sweet with a bit of a chew from the coconut and no aftertaste. As a side note the packaging is beautiful, feels luxurious.

  • Pros: 

    Yummy, actual food as a vitamin! Easy (vitamin) snack to eat daily, and I look forward to eating it each day..

    Cons: 

    May be out of my price range.

    Highly recommend for women who take vitamins every day as a replacement for what you're currently taking. No fillers, artificial ingredients, and no rules, like taking it with a specific food or time of day. It's a holistic, women-centered, good-for the environment vitamin-bite.

    Pros: 

    Totally natural, organic, plant-based all around multi-vitamin. Where else can you get that?

    Cons: 

    It took this long for humans to create such thing.

    Despite being a women's product, I'm still marveled by this. The thinking behind it is what we need in our shelves at this day and age, to graduate us from being a medicated & disease-focused society to a healthy and mindful one. Being a male I can only wait until we get our own version of it.

    Pros: 

    Delicious product that makes eating your daily vitamins something to look forward to each morning! And plant-based so everyone can enjoy :)

    Cons: 

    well. Now I have to hurry up and finish the rest of the pills hiding in my cabinet.

    I love this product - the beautiful greenish blue hue and its ingredients, flavor, texture. Great job designing a product with the everyday woman in mind from start to finish , Sara!

  • Pros: 

    Taste, natural ingredients, that it is food

    Cons: 

    Too much plastic & general recycling every month.

    It is food, so put something in my stomach without making me feel nauseated. Mint tastes yummy, don’t love the lemon. All nice things vs pills which are processed and unrecognizable. Love that all the ingredients are good ones! As a non-breakfast eater, it gives me a few calories to get through the morning on, so I’m not fainting by 11. Sort of spliced a major problem for me there. Also, I can’t tell but I’m pretty sure it’s made me feel much better since I started taking it 2 months ago, in terms of energy & outlook. Would like less plastic in the packaging. One more large item that I am now contributing to the recycling every month. I’ve got four kids so I am trying to be hyper-mindful of our carbon footprint, so its an issue.

  • Pros: 

    yay vitamins and idealism!

    Cons: 

    taste is... not even quite bearable

    I got these vitamins and was unbelievably excited, I have been telling my friends and family, and offered my mother one as soon as I got them. We were woefully disappointed. Perhaps our tastebuds are broken, but... I doubt it. They taste like... some kind of odd dirt maybe? Either way, I can’t even get to liking them enough to get through this box. I wish I had gotten the sample size 😪 Maybe I’ll try to coat them in dark chocolate or something. :(

  • Pros: 

    Idea is exactly what I’m looking for!

    Cons: 

    Taste AWFUL, I don’t know why everyone’s saying it taste great.

    I’m really trying to power through them cause they’re so expensive, maybe I got the wrong flavor, but bleh. Even the smell is starting to get to me. And these things aren’t small, sigh. Please improve on taste

  • Pros: 

    Gem tastes amazing and feels natural. I used to take a sublingual B12 that was too sweet and i have completely converted to Gem!

    Cons: 

    None yet! Would be cool if we could recycle the packaging for refills rather than receiving a new bottle every time.

    Highly recommend

  • Pros: 

    delicious

    Cons:

  • Pros: 

    Beyond specifically for/by women

    Cons: 

    Add/made specific one with zinc in for men. Instead of having them be deficient in zinc and/or needing separate zinc ones.

    Especially, when that also includes both children/babies in the mix as well. Since they are also really important in my eyes.
