We’ll walk you through its bestsellers, customer feedback, answers to important FAQs, and more, to help you decide if they’re the right fit for your lifestyle.

Overview of Deejo

Deejo Knife Review

Deejo is one of three cutlery and outdoor brands owned by Coriolis, a company developed in 1995 by Luc Foin and Stéphane Lebeau.

Each of its three brands has a totally different feel. Our featured one offers a high-class style, utilizing quality materials like horn, stainless steel, and resin, alongside a crowd-pleasing, luxury-looking design.

Sold all over the world, the brand’s headquarters are located in France. The brand prioritizes quality, aiming to create an overall pleasing and perfect product. To ensure these standards are met, much thought and care go into the production process, all the way from design to inspection.

Before we move onto the brand’s gorgeous selection of blades, this Deejo Knife review will quickly fill you in on its pros and cons.

Deejo Knife Review

Deejo specializes in lightweight pocket knives and steak knives, boasting between 27-37 grams. The steak knives, more streamlined in appearance than their handy relatives, have a similar hollow-handle look but don’t bend in the middle and come in sets of six.

This Deejo Knife review won’t be focusing on the brand’s steak knives, instead, devoting all of its attention to its sleek collection of fierce, folding pocket knives, which utilize dependable wood, safety lock features, and attractive finishes to keep things classy.

Deejo Knives Review

Pocket knives come in all shapes and sizes, but in the end, they need to fit comfortably in your pocket. Some of the models outlined below in this Deejo Knives review come with belt clips for easy access to what may become one of your most-used tools.

Below, you’ll read about the brand’s collection of pocket knives, some with brilliant engravings, others with exquisite blade finishing, but all made with Z40C13 stainless steel and non-serrated edges ideal for slicing and sharpening.

Deejo 37G Coral Wood Review 

The striking, black titanium finish of the Deejo 37G Coral Wood blade contrasts against the reddish tones of the coral wood handle. The wood, a great choice for those working around water or in humid climates, combats humidity well, meaning the wood won’t swell and crack or warp with time.

Measuring 20.5 cm long when open and 9.5 cm when closed, keep this light but mighty Deejo 37g blade close by for everyday tasks such as cutting zip ties, opening packages, or take it into the wilderness to cut kindling and pop open a beer.

Get the 37G Coral Wood for $75.

Deejo 37G Wacholderholz Review

With a serious look, the Deejo 37G Wacholderholz takes no prisoners. It’s made from stainless steel but has a black surface, giving it a modern ferocity and eye-catching appearance when hanging from your belt loop.

The 9.5 cm blade has a liner-lock safety clip to keep it closed while it hangs, ensuring no accidents happen. The handle, made from juniper wood, has a hint of a woodsy scent and light shade contrasting the darkness of the Deejo pocket knife.

With an open measurement of 20.5cm, the attractive 37G Wacholderholz is $65.

Deejo 37G Juniper Wood/Fish Review

Known in Japan as a symbol of luck, Koi fish can also stand for perseverance through tough times. The 37G Juniper Wood/Fish knife features a Koi engraving on one side of the stainless steel blade, giving it personal and heartfelt meaning. The blade itself is 9.5 cm in length and 0.9 cm in thickness.

It has a matte finishing for a powerful, yet artistic appearance. The marbling on the juniper wood handle provides striking detail, while the wood naturally has a spicy, airy scent to it.

Measuring 20.5 cm when open, this meaningful blade is $80.

Deejo 27G Coral Wood Review

Loved for its deep amber tones, Coral Wood is an ideal choice for any knife thanks to the way it naturally resists humidity. It’s a sturdy wood that gives a knife a traditional, dependable look as if you’d inherited it from your great grandfather.

Measuring 17 cm when open, the 0.9 cm thick blade has the classic Deejo look of quality.

Get the Deejo 27G Coral Wood knife for $65.

Deejo 27G Naked Review 

There’s always something edgy about being naked. Of course, we’re talking about a stainless steel 0.35 cm blade here, and it doesn’t run short on sharp edges.

The bare handle gives this 17 cm knife a dangerous look but also makes it extremely lightweight. Clocking in at just 27 grams, the 27G Naked has a secure liner locking system that prevents the knife from popping open in your pocket, and a belt clip to keep it by your side.

With a titanium finish, this sharp blade is $65.

Deejo Duo 15G Yin & Yang Review

Two complementary knives, one silver, one smooth, matte black, each engraved with half of a Yin Yang symbol, representing the darkness and light inside of everything on this planet. Both knives are naked without a wooden handle, making this light and ideal for simple tasks like cutting fishing lines or other small utility tasks.

Measuring 17cm when open and 9cm when closed, this show-stopping 15G Yin & Yang set is $80.

Do Deejo Knives Fold?

Deejo Knife Review

All of Deejo pocket knives fold, because, well, they have to. For a pocket knife to fit in your pocket, often it needs to become at least half of its full length. But that’s not the only reason you want to fold your pocket knife.

This may go unsaid, but having an open knife in your pocket isn’t exactly a good idea. In addition to folding, Deejo knives have a safety lock that assures they won’t spring upon unannounced.

The brand also carries steak knives that do not fold, if you’re looking for a quality cutter to add to your dinnerware collection.

How Long Is The Blade On A Deejo Knife?

Deejo Knife Review

It depends on which model you choose. The brand offers 15G, 27G, and 37G knives. The latter is just a smidgen longer. See the bullet points directly below in this Deejo Knife review for details on the length of each size knife:

  • 15G – Blade 5.7 cm
  • 27G – Blade 8 cm
  • 37G – Blade 9.5 cm

What Kind Of Steel Do Deejo Knives Use?

Deejo Knife Review

Deejo uses Z40C13 stainless steel.

Who Is Deejo For?

Deejo Knife Review

Have you ever tried to open a package, letter, or even a food container and wished you had something sharp? Maybe you used your keys in a hopeful attempt to somehow slice with a dull edge. Opening things isn’t the only reason to have a Deejo knife, knives are perhaps the most useful tool—after all, we carry pocket knives, not pocket spoons.

There are many situations one may find himself in when a sharp edge would certainly get him out of a bind. Deejo knives aren’t reserved for men only, they’re for anyone who works with their hands, goes out into the wilderness, or finds having a sharp edge around handy in their day-to-day lives.

Comparison: Deejo vs. Baladeo

Deejo Knife Review

If you’re reading this Deejo Knife review, then you, more than anyone, are familiar with the search for a knife that works. All knives are designed to cut, but they’re not all built the same, and some slice smoother, quicker, and cleaner than others.

There’s a reason the list of knife types is so long, and we can all agree that hacking at a piece of wood requires a different blade than slicing a tomato does. But even when looking at two knives that look identical, there most likely will be differences—in the type of steel, the finish, the handle, and maybe other features too.

In this section of our Deejo review, we’ve put our featured brand head-to-head with Baladeo, a cutlery brand that specializes in tools made for the outdoors (think: foldable pliers and tiny, multi-blade pocket knives).

At first glance, the brands appear to be nothing like one another, except for the fact they both make pocket knives. Upon further inspection, we found out the two are owned by the same company, Coriolis. That’s where things get interesting.

Baladeo’s pocket knives are made from 420 stainless steel, yet Deejo’s are made from Z40C13. After a little research, we found out that these two types of steel are virtually the same thing, one just called a different name. Because the brands are owned by the same company, we can assume they use the same steel.

But what about how they look? Our featured brand and its competitor’s knives look completely different. Baladeo’s collection is more… normal looking, where Deejo’s has a specialized appearance.

This may be due to the fact that our featured brand only offers two types of knives and a few accessories to hold them in—no other tools. Baladeo has an entire collection of cutlery, accessories, tools, and things like lunchboxes.

When looking at the Baladeo Pocket Knife ‘Maringa’ side-by-side with the Deejo 37G Coral Wood, even though the looks are completely different, the Maringa actually uses the same wood, although they call it Padauk wood instead (same wood, different name).

So even though these two knives are virtually the same, Baladeo’s is $42, whereas Deejo’s is $80. Why would this be? Both knives have belt clips, are made from the same materials, have a non-serrated blade, and a safety lock. The difference comes in weight.

Our competitor brand’s knife is 87 grams—more than double what our featured brand is. We’ll also give it to Deejo that its knife is just simply more attractive. It’s smooth and downright pretty. So while you’re spending more, you’re getting a streamlined version without the weight and a little more in the looks department.

Deejo Reviews: What Do Customers Think?

Deejo Knife Review

Since this Deejo Knife review just brought up the topic of price, it’s important to also mention quality. Though we can look at any from afar and say it’s a good-looking piece of equipment, we can’t know for sure without hearing from customers.

In this section, you’ll read a sampling of buyer feedback sourced from a variety of review sites and blogs around the web to help you understand what Deejo knives are really like.

Heading to Amazon first, we found the 27g Juniper Wood Knife with an overall 4.6/5 star rating from 181 shoppers. If you’d like to see how that score was calculated, have a peek at the snapshot below:

  • 5 stars: 71%
  • 4 stars: 12%
  • 3 stars: 4%
  • 2 stars: 5%
  • 1 star: 7%

Happy customers write of good quality, a sharp blade, and a lovely smelling handle. One Deejo Knife review reads, “The blade comes sharp with a nice grind on it, ready for use right out of the box.” We’d hope so, but sharp knives aren’t always guaranteed with some brands. It’s good to know this brand’s knives are.

Complaints about the blade vary. Some have issues with the lack of grip, others with keeping it sharp. One wrote, “Design is great–a very pretty blade. What I dislike is the flimsy hinge and generally fragility of the knife.” They didn’t expand on exactly what that means, but we take it as it might not hold up to tough jobs.

Needing some more information, we headed to an in-depth Deejo Knife review on a blog called Charlie Trotters.

The review assessed the knife from handle to tip, remarking on the quality locking mechanism and variety of sizes from the Deejo 15g knife to the 37g.

Addressing the quality of steel, the review read, “to people complaining about its inexpensive 420HC steel, well it’s a budget knife after all and you can’t expect a $200 steel in it.” Great point, but we also appreciate that despite a medium-level quality of steel, the reviewer still found it does the trick for a number of jobs.

Were there any issues the review blogger found? Yes, but they were minimal, including an uncomfortable handle and no assisted stud. Their final words were, “don’t expect it to crack open a coconut for you.” Just like the Amazon review, we now know Deejo UL knives aren’t for hardcore tasks.

To see if we could find out more about the build of the Deejo wood knife, we headed to Arizona Hiker’s Guide, a hiking tips and gear review blog.

Some points the review mentioned about the Deejo Juniper Knife:

  • The joint “held up nicely
  • The wood adds “thickness” and “color” – needed because otherwise, the handle is very thin
  • Over two months of use, the wood in the handle has split
  • Extremely lightweight
  • Easy to sharpen with a whetstone

There appear to be more pros than cons throughout the last Deejo Knife review. 

Considering it’s a budget knife and is light and small, the issues they, and other buyers, found with the knives are understandable.

Sometimes, when a knife looks good you don’t expect it to work. Everyone who bought a Deejo knife enjoyed its aesthetic, and most were pleased about how it held up to constant use. It’s important to keep in mind the limits these knives have, as they’re super lightweight and may be intended as more of a showpiece than a hard-working knife.

Is Deejo Worth It?

Deejo Knife Review

There’s no denying how handy it is to have a knife on hand. Deejo knives have been described as “gentleman’s knives,” meaning they may be more about show than they are about utility. 

That’s not to say they don’t perform well. Most reviews clearly demonstrate that Deejo knives hold up to the test, but you’ll need to treat them well to keep them in good shape.

Arriving sharp, easily sharpened, and having a medium quality blade, this Deejo Knife review believes the knives are worth the buy since they’re also relatively affordable and supremely attractive.

Deejo Promotions & Discounts

About Daily Harvest

Daily Harvest Smoothies Review

Daily Harvest delivers Smoothies, Harvest Bowls, and all kinds of healthy options built on fruits and vegetables and delivered right to your door. Everything is ready in minutes and always plant-based, gluten-free, and dairy-free. 

A lot of us struggle to get enough fruits and veggies in our diet. In fact, in 2015, the CDC[1] found that only 1 in 10 adults eat enough of it, which is an issue because a lack of fruit and veggies has been associated with the development of chronic illness, specifically heart disease[2].

If you wish you were one of that 10% of people who meet their fruit and veggie intake, but you’re not a fan of eating them raw, smoothies can be a super fun solution! This is where Daily Harvest can help.

Daily Harvest is a popular food-delivery company with an impressive Instagram following of 573K! They will stock your freezer with convenient and healthy options made from organic whole fruits and vegetables. 

This Daily Harvest review will take a look at the brand’s many options and plans, delivery policies, FAQs, price breakdowns, and more, to help you decide whether it’s worth signing up for. 

Overview of Daily Harvest

Daily Harvest Smoothies Review

Rachel Drori realized that full meals were hard for her to keep up with and found herself regularly snacking on whatever was around because she didn’t have time to make healthy meals herself. 

In the early days, this brand only delivered pre-packaged and frozen smoothies, but it now carries over 90 options across 11 collections for any craving or time of day. Their collections include Smoothies, Harvest Bowls, Flatbreads, Bites, Scoops (their plant-based ice cream), and even Mylk.. No more going without nutrition because of no time!

The brand also takes a regenerative approach; only using sustainable practices to reduce food waste, use organic farming practices and thoughtfully sourced ingredients, and only implementing recyclable packaging. They are in the process of transitioning all of their packaging to 100% compostable as well!

In addition, Daily Harvest never uses gums, preservatives, harmful oils, fillers, refined sugars, stabilizers, or artificial ingredients. With over 90 plant-based items on the menu, there are a lot of choices for everyone.

If you’re hesitant about eating plant-based, consider the benefits. One study[3] found that a plant-based diet improved body weight, fat mass, and insulin resistance markers in people who were overweight. 

Before we begin our Daily Harvest review, let’s view the highlights of the brand. 

Highlights

  • Healthy and high-quality plant-based meals   
  • They offer a huge selection of over 90 options
  • All ingredients are frozen at peak ripeness at the source to lock in nutrients and flavor.
  • Single serving containers reduce food waste and dishes 
  • You can skip deliveries, modify the frequency, and pause or cancel your plan up to 8 weeks in advance. 
  • Free shipping for all deliverable locations 
  • You can try out Daily Harvest with our discount code HONESTBRANDREVIEWS and get up to $40 off your first box.

How Does Daily Harvest Work?

Daily Harvest Smoothies Review

Once you sign up for a Daily Harvest plan you can pick the size of your first box. You can get 9 to 26 items delivered weekly or monthly. You can choose various items from the selection, and you can change this option weekly. 

Members can also cancel or alter their plans 8 weeks in advance and pause their program at any time. In the following section, this Daily Harvest review will focus on the brand’s Small, Medium, and Large boxes.

Daily Harvest Small Box Review 

The small subscription comes with just 9 products. Many meal plans have a flat rate for delivery and products. But not Daily Harvest smoothie delivery.

Instead, customers pay per item. The more you choose, the more discounts you will receive. Daily Harvest prices range from $6 to $9, so your total can vary depending on selected items. On average, a Small Box costs around $75

The menu includes Daily Harvest bowls, smoothies, Mylk products, flatbreads, soups, forager bowls, oat bowls, chia bowls (ice cream), Scoops, Bites, and lattes.

When you select the items, you will see a product preview, instructions, price, ingredients, customer ratings, nutritional facts, and site reviews. 

Let’s take a closer look at a few of their best-selling items. Daily Harvest smoothies, for example, typically cost around $8.

For example, the Strawberry + Peach smoothie is one of the customer favorites. Made with organic strawberry, banana, peach, raspberry, oats, and goji berry, this pick me up is full of superfoods for on the go. Goji berry[4] is full of antioxidant properties, meaning they can protect your body’s cells from damage. Similarly, oats[5] are a prebiotic and a fiber that reduces heart disease. Each serving contains no added sugars or protein and is 140 calories. You only need your blender. 

Daily Harvest Mylk is a unique product. For $8, you can make around half a gallon of almond or almond and vanilla flavored milk. These arrive as wedges of tightly packed nuts, pink sea salt, and vanilla bean (in the case of the second option) that you blend with water. 

Plant-based milks have exploded in popularity over the past few decades, and for a good reason. About 65% of the world’s population develops some form of lactose intolerance as they grow up, leading to unpleasant symptoms like excess gas, bloating, and stomach pain. Additionally, the production of plant-based milks tends to be more environmentally friendly. 

Since they arrive as solids, Mylk can last longer than liquid almond milk. Daily Harvest also promises that this plant-based product is free of gums, fillers, or stabilizers.

Daily Harvest Medium Box Review

Daily Harvest’s Medium Box comes with 14-23 items. But don’t worry, you get access to the same options as every other plan. With the additional $10 in savings, you can look to spend about $110.  

Let’s look at another popular Daily Harvest menu offering: Harvest Bowls at $9 per item. The Spinach + Shiitake Grits is a favorite of many customers.

The ingredients are entirely customizable to accommodate people with allergies, and each product does come with a list of all ingredients to be safe for different types of diets.

For instance, the Spinach + Shiitake Grits contain cashews. Other ingredients include organic millet, spinach, cauliflower, shiitake, and basil. Leafy green vegetables, like spinach, have protective effects against cardiovascular disease[6]. Meanwhile, dried shiitake[7] is rich in fiber and iron, which are necessary for good health overall. 

This healthy meal also includes seasonings like virgin olive oil, Himalayan sea salt, cashew butter, white pepper, garlic, and black pepper. If you’re hesitant about oil in your meal, you should know that olive oil has many health benefits! Olive oil is a source of polyphenols[8] that provide many health benefits like antioxidants and anti-inflammatory effects. 

One serving of this meal gives protein, fiber, and 200 calories.

Another $9 item is the Kale + Sweet Potato Flatbread. This meal is full of nutrients and leaves you feeling pleasantly full with organic sweet potato, cauliflower, kale, red cabbage, spinach, and coriander. Sweet potato[9], in particular, is super rich in nutrients and antioxidants[10], protecting your cells.

With 370 calories for 230 grams of flatbread, the Kale + Sweet Potato Flatbread comes with a little more preparation since it needs baking.  

Daily Harvest’s oat bowls are well-liked and less expensive at $6 per item. One best-selling product is the Apple + Cinnamon which comes with organic cauliflower, apple, pumpkin seed, oats, walnut, and cinnamon. 

Hesitant about having a vegetable like cauliflower in your oat bowl? Rest assured, it tastes great, as proven by its best-seller title. This is a filling product, and for only 310 calories per serving! 

Daily Harvest Large Plan Review 

Finally, we have the Large Box Plan. It is the best value for subscribers as it saves them an extra $20. Unless you have many mouths to feed, setting up a monthly Daily Harvest food delivery makes the most sense for this plan.

24 items might be too many and too costly for one week, but you can easily choose to receive the same number each month for around $180. Like the other plans, Daily Harvest provides a wide range of products for you to choose from, including meals and snacks. 

The brand has a treat that will make you melt: gluten-free and dairy-free ice cream! At $9 per pint, the Daily Harvest cost for Scoops is more expensive than a local cone, but they use healthy ingredients like organic coconut.

One best-selling Scoop is the Chocolate + Ooey, Gooey, Midnight Fudge. Tasting like sea salted chocolate ganache, the mix of organic coconut, maple, cacao, avocado, pine pollen, and vanilla makes for a sweet yet healthy dessert. For each serving of 135 grams, there are 260 calories—less than your average ice cream!

Another popular dessert is Daily Harvest’s Bites. 7 servings cost $8, the same price as a smoothie. 

The Hazelnut + Chocolate Bite is a definite fan favorite, made with organic avocado but with the flavor of hazelnut, dark chocolate, organic cacao, chia, vanilla bean, and reishi. This dish has a lot of nutrition in a mere 100 calories

But, the cheapest Daily Harvest menu items are their famous lattes. For $6, you get 2 single-serving pods for a delicious morning pick me up.

The best-selling Chaga + Chocolate pod contains organic coconut, cacao, Chaga, organic reishi, vanilla bean, and the cherry on top is the natural sweetener, maple extract. Chaga[11] is a powerful medicinal mushroom shown to have anti-cancer properties.

With only 100 calories per pod, there are a few more calories than the usual latte. You can also make it without a coffee machine, depending on your preference.  

You can make these Daily Harvest lattes by running hot water over the sealed pod and then unpeeling and heating it in milk (either in a pot or in the microwave). Then, simply stir to enjoy.

How Much Is Daily Harvest?

Daily Harvest Smoothies Review

As we saw in this Daily Harvest review, the costs for a food delivery box can vary depending on your selections.

While there are items at $6, most of the more filling foods are around the price point of $9. Before tax is applied, your orders can fall into the following ranges: 

  • Small Plan: $54$81 
  • Medium Plan:  $74$116 
  • Large Plan:  $144$196

The different plans also all have different savings and promotions—so it all relies on how you want to incorporate Daily Harvest into your life! 

What Is Daily Harvest?

Daily Harvest Smoothies Review

Daily Harvest is a plant-based meal delivery service that incorporates healthy options into your daily meal plan. You have the opportunity to select the meals and smoothies that fit your preference for affordable prices.

With weekly offers of 9, 14, or 24 products, there is also a monthly box of 24 items from the Daily Harvest app or their website.  

An added bonus, at least 95% of the ingredients used in the meals are organic, all without additives, preservatives, or fillers. Plus, organic produce means you never have to worry about pesticides.

Users of Daily Harvest meals and snacks say that these meals are easy to prepare. All of the meals arrive frozen and in singular cups for easy preparation and freshness every time.

Please note that most of the products arrive as one serving in a single order, but ice creams, snack bites, and lattes often have multiple servings.

Can You Lose Weight On Daily Harvest?

Daily Harvest Smoothies Review

Daily Harvest’s smoothies, meals, and snacks are designed to help you get the nutrition you need, with most of the products having less than 400 calories. Since the ingredients are plant-based, you benefit from daily meals without too many calories. 

Note that Daily Harvest’s options have low amounts of protein, so the ‘fullness’ factor is less apparent. So you may need to incorporate other foods into your diet if you are looking for that full feeling.

So, is Daily Harvest actually healthy? Absolutely! But sustainable weight loss is all about balance and planning—including a nutritious diet, exercise, and restful sleep. 

Can You Cancel Daily Harvest At Any Time?

Daily Harvest Smoothies Review

Yes, you can cancel of your Daily Harvest plan at any time. But if you don’t cancel after Sunday at 6 PM ET, you will still be charged for your next shipment. 

You will also need to pay all taxes and additional charges before you can cancel and your plan will automatically renew until you cancel. To start your cancellation, you can email [email protected].

Daily Harvest Reviews: What Do Customers Think?

Daily Harvest Smoothies Review

This Daily Harvest review wanted to learn more about what subscribers thought of the food delivery service. Ahead, you’ll find feedback sourced from the brand’s official website, Trustpilot, and news outlets such as HuffPost and Real Simple.  

The brand’s website generally hosts positive customer reviews for its various menu options. One Daily Harvest review for their Strawberry + Peach flavor (rated 4.6/5 stars) reads:

“It was nice. The flavor was more delicate and subtle when I used water. I tasted the strawberry the most. I might use plant-based milk next time for a more milkshake experience. The color was pretty too.” 

Speaking of plant-based milk, their Almond Mylk received 4.7/5 stars (from an unspecified number of reviewers).

One buyer shared, “I still can’t believe this Mylk is so clean and delicious. I love that it’s only 2 ingredients and how easy it is to make. I won’t be drinking any other milks tbh.” The main complaint that users had about these wedges was around the tricky packaging.

With some of Daily Harvest’s plant-based products, the taste and texture can take some getting used to. For example, customers were not as satisfied with the Mint + Dark, Melty Cacao Chips Scoop, giving it 3.7/5 stars

Positive reviews are usually about the healthy ingredients used by Daily Harvest. A critic from HuffPost wrote:

I felt like Daily Harvest was the perfect middle spot between cooking a healthy dinner from scratch and the convenience of frozen food…I usually don’t think about how many fruits and veggies I’m consuming on a daily basis, but with Daily Harvest, I knew that I was eating lots of them.” 

A writer at Real Simple agreed, “What I found with my Daily Harvest supply was that I dramatically increased the amount of produce and plants I was eating because their foods are all plant-forward.”

Daily Harvest scored high on Trustpilot, another critical third-party review site. From 1,035 ratings, the brand received an average of 3.6/5 stars. There are few complaints about food taste, but most customers complimented the items. 

There are repeated criticisms about packaging quality (either missing dry ice or spillages). Fortunately, subscribers receive food credit and refunds in these scenarios. 

This Daily Harvest review noticed that some customers struggled with canceling their subscriptions, so we will provide a detailed outline for readers in our FAQs section below.

Is Daily Harvest Worth It?

Daily Harvest Smoothies Review

Ultimately, this Daily Harvest review finds: yes, the service is worth it. With small portions, snackable options, convenient packaging, and healthy add-ons, it is generally ideal for those who are always on the go.

Overall, the company has responsible practices (as long as you submit changes before the cutoff on Sundays at 6 PM ET). Their ingredients are flavorsome, and their smoothies are special and refreshing

Daily Harvest is one of the more expensive meal delivery subscriptions. Purchasing it every week can be a burden, but that is why we recommend the brand’s monthly plan for smaller households.  

In the end, this Daily Harvest review believes that if you are looking to try more plant-based recipes but you don’t have the time to shop and cook for yourself, this delivery company is a great starting point.

About Soylent

Soylent Drink Review

Soylent is on a mission to make sustainable nutrition accessible for all. With a variety of flavors to choose from, this health and wellness brand specializes in making meal replacement drinks, powders, and bars.

According to the 2015 Advisory Report to the Secretary of Health and Human Services and the Secretary of Agriculture[1], Americans are not getting enough vitamin D, calcium, iron, potassium, and fiber from the diet. Despite people’s willingness to adopt a healthy diet, there are too many barriers keeping them from achieving that goal. A survey[2] conducted in Switzerland revealed these barriers include daily routine, taste, and lack of time.

In this context, Soylent emerged as an option to replace those non-nutritious meals we end up having because of our daily routine or lack of time. Garnering a 40.9k following on Instagram, Soylent has been featured by numerous media outlets, including Vox, The New York Times, and Forbes Magazine.

Considered a contender in Time Magazine’s list of Best Inventions in 2019, it’s apparent that this brand garners a sizable amount of buzz. But the question is, are they worth checking out?

This Soylent drink review will hopefully answer that for you. We’ll dive deep into the brand, products, customer ratings, promotions, and more to help you make that crucial decision.

Overview of Soylent

Soylent Drink Review

Living off a diet of instant ramen and frozen meals, founders Rob Rhinehart, Matt Cauble, John Coogan, and David Renteln had just about enough. Their frustration soon turned into a viable business idea.

The group believed that food could be simplified for the better. Using their collective background in software engineering, they started their journey in reinventing the way we think about eating.

Established in 2012, Soylent drew inspiration from a 1966 dystopian sci-fi novel by Harry Harrison called Make Room! Make Room! In case you haven’t read this book, it’s a story that explores population growth and world resources.

While the brand doesn’t hone in on the paranoid nature of the impending apocalypse, they do focus on trying to make nutrition accessible and affordable for all. Soylent states that they want their products to make an impact on student food insecurity, the homeless crisis, and global malnutrition.

Headquartered in Silicon Valley, California, Soylent has grown quite successfully as a business. Today, they have launched brick-and-mortar retail stores and are available in 20k locations in the United States.

The company has also used its newfound popularity for good. It developed the #SoylentForGood program which donates meals to people in need.

Before we get into this Soylent drink review, let’s go over some initial highlights:

Highlights

  • A variety of Soylent meal replacement options to choose from, including bars, powders, and drinks
  • Offers nutritious food at an affordable price
  • Readily available and convenient during an emergency
  • Products do not have to be refrigerated and can last for up to one year

  • Some customers report success with using its meal replacers as part of a Soylent weight loss diet
Soylent Drink Review

We know what you’re thinking. Zombie apocalypse, dire resources, and an uncertain future…is  this what Soylent is all about? While it was inspired by a dystopian novel, there’s certainly no panic in getting your hands on meal replacers. But, they do garner some awareness of food insecurity around the world. It’s a problem, and somebody needs to address it.

Designed for those who find it difficult to get three meals a day, as well as people who just want a convenient way to get a daily fill of nutrition, The company is all about making food more accessible. From its powders, beverages, to bars, this Soylent drink review will take a look at some of their best selling products.

Soylent Drinks Review

Packed with your daily nutritional needs, the brand offers a series of Soylent meal replacement beverages on their website. Coming in a variety of different flavors, this Soylent drink review will go through a few of their most popular mixes.

Soylent Drink Creamy Chocolate Review 

If cocoa’s rich, velvety taste is calling your name, try opting for the Creamy Chocolate drink as a healthier option. Packed with soy-based protein, this beverage contains all 9 essential amino acids. It also incorporates slowly digested carbs and fibers, while providing polyunsaturated fatty acids from sunflower and canola oils to keep your cholesterol in check. You get a healthy nutrition fix because this Soylent mix offers up to a 25% daily value of 28 vitamins and minerals.

As highlighted in a narrative review[3] published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, omega-6 (the most abundant polyunsaturated fatty acids) can reduce LDL cholesterol and cardiovascular disease risk. The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends replacing saturated fatty acids with polyunsaturated fatty acids. 

Moreover, a review article[4] published in Circulation states that omega-3 fatty acids are safe and effective in reducing triglycerides. In a recent systematic review and meta-analysis[5] published in Clinical Nutrition, the authors gathered data from 13 clinical studies to determine the impact of omega-3 and 6 fatty acids on Metabolic Syndrome risk. The authors concluded that omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids had been proven to reduce Metabolic Syndrome risk, while omega-6 fatty acids did not prove to add any benefit. The reduction of metabolic syndrome contributes to lower counts of diabetes, heart disease, and cardiovascular disease.

Infused with unsaturated fatty acids and slowly digested carbs, this beverage is a far cry from those calorie-high cocoa shakes. 

Low-glycemic index diets help people lose weight while preventing obesity-related diseases like type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. To achieve a low glycemic index, you need to switch from rapidly absorbed carbs such as sugar and refined grains to slowly absorbed carbs and fibers (contained in green vegetables, fruits, carrots, lentils, all bran cereals, etc.). 

Another systematic review and meta-analysis[6] found that low-glycemic diets are proven to reduce glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c), fasting glycemia, body weight, and total cholesterol levels. As a result, these diets improve glycemic control and may reduce body weight in individuals with diabetes and prediabetes. 

Perfect for breakfast, lunch, or a quick snack, the Creamy Chocolate drink is offered in two different purchasing options:

  • One-time purchase for 12 bottles: $42
  • 30-day subscription: $37

If your chocolate craving still isn’t satisfied, try opting for a Chocolate Brownie Soylent bar.

Soylent Drink Mint Chocolate Review 

Soylent Drink Milk Chocolate Review

Chocolate addicts, we know how tough it is to resist a cocoa binge. It’s hard to ignore the temptation of decadent truffles, cakes, and ice cream cones when offered. Specifically designed to quell the sweet tooth, the Mint Chocolate drink from Soylent is made to satisfy those Hershey cravings in only 400 calories.

Containing just 1 gram of sugar, this beverage is heavy on soy protein isolate, essential nutrients, and omega-3 fatty acids.

In a meta-analysis[7] published in the Journal of the American Heart Association, researchers analyzed data from 46 clinical trials that evaluated the impact of soy intake on cholesterol levels. The authors concluded that soy consumption has consistently been shown to reduce LDL and total cholesterol levels in a small but significant manner.

Entirely vegan, gluten-free, and friendly towards those with nut allergies, this Soylent nutrition mix introduces slower digesting carbs to ensure no spikes in blood sugar. In terms of price, the Mint Chocolate drink is available to purchase in two ways:

  • One-time purchase for 12 bottles: $42
  • 30-day subscription: $37

Soylent Drink Strawberry Review 

Nothing screams the essence of summer more than berry smoothies. The Strawberry drink by Soylent introduces a more nutritional option than its sugary counterpart. Refreshingly sweet with a hint of tartness, this beverage only contains 1 gram of sugar. Its low sugar content is thanks to allulose, a naturally occurring low-calorie carb that simulates the taste of ordinary sweeteners.

Supercharged with vitamins, minerals, slowly digested carbs, amino acids, and healthy fats, this Soylent Strawberry drink can help maintain cell structure, normal hormone production, and can serve as an energy source. 

Friendly for those who live a vegan or keto lifestyle, this berry blast is offered at two available price points:

  • One-time purchase for 12 bottles: $42 
  • 30-day subscription: $37

Soylent Drink Vanilla Review 

What is more classic than Vanilla? Offering a sweet but subtle taste, this Soylent 2.0 drink contains no added caffeine. Amounting to only 1 gram of total sugars, you don’t need to worry about food-induced crashes later on in the day.

It also contains 39 essential nutrients, including a blend of essential amino acids, which are basically the building blocks of cells and tissues in our bodies, including muscle.

Containing no artificial flavors, colors, dairy, or nuts, this beverage can easily be a substitute for those mega-calorie yogurt drinks or shakes. Adding up to 400 calories in total, you can easily get your growling stomach silenced in order to get work done.

You can purchase the Vanilla Soylent drink in two ways:

  • One-time purchase for 12 bottles: $42
  • 30-day subscription: $37

Soylent Cafe Mocha Review 

For those that like their coffee sweet, but hate the extra calories, the Cafe Mocha Soylent drink only contains a single gram of sugar. Providing the same robust taste of java with the velvety notes of chocolate, this nutritional alternative may have you saying no to those ‘green mermaid’ cups that are loaded with unnecessary sweeteners.

This meal adds caffeine and L-theanine to the classic Soylent Drink to keep you focused. It’s also crammed with essential vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and low-glycemic-index carbs to help you power through the day. 

Caffeine and L-theanine help improve our performance in cognitively demanding activities. In a study[8] published in Nutritional Neuroscience, researchers evaluated the impact of caffeine and L-theanine on cognitive functions in healthy volunteers. Results showed that caffeine improved the alertness and attention of participants who were asked to switch tasks. The combination of L-theanine and caffeine offered extra benefits improving the speed and accuracy of attention when switching tasks while reducing the impact of distractions in memory tasks.

The Cafe Mocha drink is offered at two different price points:

  • One-time purchase for 12 bottles: $42
  • 30-day subscription: $37

Soylent Nutrition Shake Sampler Pack Review 

It’s always good to change things up once in a while. The Nutrition Shake Sampler Pack includes 6 of Soylent’s available flavors. This includes Creamy Chocolate, Strawberry, Banana, Mint Chocolate, Vanilla, and Cafe Mocha.

Made to replace those unhealthy smoothies, juices, and shakes, this collection is designed as a healthier alternative to satisfy those cravings.

The great thing about this kit is that it requires no refrigeration. Users can simply store it in their cupboard or pantry for up to a year. For a cost-effective way to introduce a more sustainable way of living, the Nutrition Shake Sampler Pack costs $25 in total.

Soylent Neopolitan Variety Pack Review

If you’re a fan of the ice cream flavor, there’s a good chance that you’ll like the Neopolitan Variety Pack from Soylent. Including a 12 bottle set of flavors Creamy Chocolate, Strawberry, and Vanilla, this ready-to-drink meal only amounts to 400 calories per serving and 1 gram of sugar each.

Packed with soy-based protein, this collection also contains sunflower and canola oil, which are high sources of unsaturated fats. Enhanced with vitamins and minerals like A, D, and magnesium, you can introduce yourself to the Soylent diet with ease.

Customers can get their hands on the Neopolitan Variety Pack in two ways:

  • One-time purchase: $45
  • 30-day subscription: $39

Soylent Powder Review

Sometimes you can’t be bothered to cook a meal. But on the other hand, it’s quite unhealthy ordering another round of fast food. At Soylent, customers can get the best of both worlds by purchasing their powder packs.

Made to replace the average meal, they currently offer two available flavors. This Soylent drink review will take a look at some of their cult classics down below.

Soylent Powder – Original Review

Considered the product that started it all, the Powder–Original mix is Soylent’s first-ever formula. Made entirely out of soy-based protein, one serving (8 oz cup) amounts to 270 calories in total. It also contains 3.5 grams of branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), 39 essential nutrients (28 vitamins and minerals, 9 essential amino acids, omega-3, and 6), including  330 mg of omega-3 fatty acids. Talk about a nutritional alternative that packs a punch!

When it comes to consumption, users can incorporate a ½ cup of this blend into one cup of water for an 8 oz serving. The brand also recommends adding it to pancakes or fruit smoothies for an additional health kick. Made to provide 35 meals, the Powder – Original mix is offered in a 13.8oz bag.

Customers can get this Soylent green food replacement in two ways:

  • One-time purchase: $64
  • 30-day subscription: $53

Soylent Powder- Cacao Review 

The Powder-Cacao pack includes all the pleasures of chocolatey goodness but puts a hold on unnecessary sugars. Made to provide a 20% daily value of vitamins and minerals, this blend is infused with soy proteins. At the end of the day, this mix helps to support the immune system and keeps our organs happy and healthy.

While customers can add the Soylent Cacao mix to water to make a simple smoothie, we suggest using it to make a delicious almond butter drizzle on top of toast or waffles. Measured in a 15.8 oz pack, the Powder-Cacao blend can last for up to 35 meals. Down below, you will find two ways to purchase this product:

  • One-time purchase: $64
  • Subscription: $53

Soylent Reviews: What Do Customers Think?

Soylent Drink Review

It’s affordable, tasty, and convenient for people on the go: this would be a quick summary of how online reviewers responded to Soylent. Most of their best-selling formulas, such as their drinks and powder packs, garner hundreds of reviews with positive ratings.

On their website, the company’s bestsellers have each earned an average of 4.2/5 stars or higher:

  • Soylent Drink Original: 4.2/5-stars average from over 700 ratings
  • Soylent Drink Strawberry: 4.5/5-stars average from over 300 ratings
  • Soylent Cafe Chai: 4.5/5-stars average from 153 ratings
  • Soylent Powder – Cacao: 4.4/5-stars average from over 500 ratings
  • Soylent Powder – Original: 4.7/5-stars average from over 300 ratings
  • Soylent Squared Chocolate Brownie: 4.3/5-stars average from 179 ratings

For example, the Creamy Chocolate beverage holds a total of 309 comments with a general score of 4.5/5 stars. One customer has tried many chocolate meal replacement beverages, but Soylent is their favorite: “I will miss cacao but this delivers on the name… I’ve tried a few different nutrition shakes but Soylent obviously has the best nutrition profile… it’s also definitely on the sweeter side, unlike cacao. all in all, it’s quite good.”

We found out that a majority of customers liked that this blend served as a more nutritional alternative to other meals. “I’ve struggled with my weight and bad habits for a long time, but since I’ve tried Soylent, I’ve been able to stick to better eating habits! The taste is so chocolate-y and delicious without it being overbearing or too sweet,” one reviewer wrote.

While there’s a good chunk of people that advocate for Soylent, we’ve also found a sizable amount of people who weren’t a big fan of their meal replacements. Blogger Micheal Kummer noted that their products weren’t as healthy as advertised due to their synthetic use of vitamins and other elements.

In an article published by Allure Magazine, the author states that they experienced stomach issues when consuming Soylent products on a daily basis.

Most of these blogs and in-depth articles had medical professionals comment on the nutritional value of Soylent. We’ve discovered that a majority of them didn’t recommend taking the brand’s drinks and powders on a daily basis. They did agree on the fact that it did provide a quick energy boost on an occasional basis.

This Soylent drink review also discovered a large number of customers using their formulas as a weight loss product. On Amazon, there are several success stories on how people consumed their drinks and powder blends to help them lose a few pounds.

Overall, some customers like the taste of Soylent products, and some report that their meal replacements help them consume additional nutrients or aid weight loss. While some customers did not like the taste or found them hard on their stomach when consumed daily, we found much fewer of these comments than the positive ones, though there were enough that they should not be ignored.

Is Soylent Worth It?

Soylent Drink Review

This Soylent drink review thinks the company might be worth checking out for quick, cost-effective nutrition on the go. There are hundreds of positive testimonials that speak to the taste and quality of the brand’s products and Soylent is a brand committed to doing good, as their entire mission revolves around making nutrition accessible for everyone.

The company wants their products to have a positive impact on food insecurity. Packaged in a convenient to-go bottle or container, customers can get their needed fill of vitamins and carbs without the fuss of washing up or producing excess waste.

But, our bodies respond differently when it comes to changes in diet. The same statement can be said for those adapting to a vegan or keto lifestyle. This decision might have a few consequences for people who want to switch over to Soylent as a permanent alternative to regular foods. After switching to the brand’s meal replacement drinks from solid foods, some customers report stomach and digestion issues.

Additionally, some people use Soylent to lose a few pounds, which is where things get a bit blurry. Since the brand isn’t marketed as a weight loss program, we strongly recommend consulting with a doctor first.

If you’re someone who values convenient nutrition for those on-the-go moments, Soylent may be the cost-effective solution you’re looking for. But, we recommend speaking with a medical professional to see if these products are truly beneficial to your health.

About Real Mushrooms

Real Mushrooms Review

Real Mushrooms makes 100% organic mushroom supplements to boost health and wellness. Their range of powders, capsules, and snacks are known for containing no added grains or mycelium. 

Mushrooms are a great source of micronutrients and proteins. They have been used for ages in traditional medicine against many diseases. In recent years, mushrooms have been of particular interest since evidence has emerged regarding their health benefits[1].

The brand has a following of 33k on Instagram and 20k on Facebook. They’ve been featured in numerous media outlets including One Green Planet and The Chicago Tribune.

This Real Mushrooms review will take a close look at the brand and their best-selling products, provide examples of customer reviews, information on promotions, and more to help you decide if their health-boosting mushroom supplements are the right choice for your diet. 

Overview of Real Mushrooms

Real Mushrooms Review

Skye Chilton founded Real Mushrooms in 2015 after developing an interest in fungi through his father. Jeff Chilton is an American mushroom grower with 40 years of experience, and was the first person ever to bring mushroom extract to North America. 

Inspired through conversations with his father, Chilton found out that the majority of medicinal mushroom products being sold didn’t actually contain real mushrooms, but an extract found within them. 

This, of course, doesn’t produce the same powerful effects that real mushrooms can, so he decided to create his own company that focused on restoring health in people around the planet and providing real information about medicinal mushrooms. 

Real Mushrooms are organically grown in China – Chilton says that it’s just not feasible to grow them in North America – but the brand’s headquarters are located in Roberts Creek, Canada. 

Now that you know how the brand got started, this Real Mushrooms review will move on to highlights of the company:

Highlights

  • Range of mushrooms that have different benefits, from boosting immunity to increasing performance
  • Over 40 years of mushroom experience
  • Organic, non-GMO, vegan, and pet friendly
  • Products are convenient and easy to use
  • Does not contain any grains or mycelium 
  • Transparency of ingredients & process, verified for quality by third party testing labs
  • Customers say that they feel a difference when taking the mushroom supplements
  • 25% off your first order when subscribing to the newsletter, and free USA & Canada shipping on orders over $50

Are mushroom supplements safe?

Real Mushrooms Review

Mushroom supplements have a ton of really great benefits like improved cognitive function, balanced blood sugar, and increased energy. 

These health products are generally deemed safe, but as with anything, you should do your research before you consume. 

First of all, you’ll want to make sure you’re buying organic mushrooms. Because supplements compact a high volume of something into tiny pill or powder form, if you choose a non-organic brand, you may be potentially consuming a high amount of pesticides and herbicides. 

There are also some concerns that Chinese-grown mushrooms (the bulk of the mushrooms on the market) can be unsafe due to the country’s high pollution rates and constant product recalls. Do your research about the company before you buy. 

Researching the seller doesn’t just apply to Chinese companies: you should do this no matter what company you buy from, as even some American companies have been known to use unwanted ingredients. 

How long do Real Mushrooms take to work? 

Real Mushrooms Review

Mushrooms have special abilities that help them ward off bacteria and predators while spreading their spores. These abilities, such as their resilience, can help humans with fighting bacteria and increasing stamina. 

Before you think this is an instant miracle cure, these changes don’t happen in humans overnight. Sometimes it can take weeks or months to experience any kind of change. 

Taking just one pill won’t give you better brain function, you’ll need to take them daily, or as prescribed, for a few weeks to see and feel the benefits. Certain vitamins may speed up the process: vitamin C has been said to help your body absorb the polysaccharides in mushrooms. Although mushroom supplements are meant for long-term use, some doctors recommend taking a break from them every 6 months. 

Now you know a little more about medicinal mushrooms and how they work, this Real Mushrooms review will now give you a rundown of some of the brand’s products and each of their potential benefits. 

Real Mushroom Supplements Review

Real Mushrooms uses hot water to bring out the best in their mushrooms, concentrating their healing powers before drying them. The brand’s supplements are one of the few on the market to not contain mycelium or any kind of grain – just pure mushroom goodness. 

This Real Mushrooms review will feature the brand’s best-selling products, including 5 different types of mushrooms in both powder and capsule forms, as well as their limited-release chocolate bar. 

Real Mushrooms Organic Lions Mane Extract Capsules Review

Lion’s Mane mushrooms are funny-looking things, resembling the volume and fluff of an actual Lion’s mane. 

Lion’s Mane extract was found to have antioxidant and neuroprotective properties in preclinical studies. One study[2] found that Lion’s Mane extract induced the recovery of damaged neurons in mice while reducing oxidative stress toxicity and showing anti-inflammatory activity in the microglia. These findings may have implications for future treatment of neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and dementia. Another preclinical study[3] published in the International Journal of Experimental & Clinical Anatomy found that Lion’s Mane extract induced nerve regeneration. 

Moreover, in an in-vitro study[4] published in the Journal of Food Biochemistry, Lion’s Mane extract was found to have antioxidant, antibacterial, and anti-tumoral activity. These preliminary results are promising, but large, well-designed clinical trials are still required.

You can get the Real Mushrooms lion’s mane mushroom capsules in a bottle with 120 or 300 servings. Boost your brain function for $30-$60 depending on size. 

Real Mushrooms Organic Lions Mane Mushroom Powder Review

This Real Mushrooms review came across a source that said Lion’s Mane mushrooms (when eaten raw) taste like crab meat. This may be due, in part, to their very distinct texture.

In powdered form, they have a subtle earthy taste that can be disguised with other strong flavors. You can throw a spoonful into a soup or sauce, or even into a smoothie. 

The Real Mushrooms Lion’s Mane Mushroom Powder has the same brain benefits as the capsules do and is said to also decrease inflammation and improve energy. Get creative with the 60g pouch for $30

Real Mushrooms 5 Defenders Chocolate Review

The 5 Defenders Chocolate combines a blend of organic mushrooms to increase your vitality. This limited-release chocolate bar uses 75% dark chocolate, and is made from 6 simple ingredients to deliver the powerful effect of fungi. 

Though this chocolate is packed with healthy ‘shrooms, you won’t taste them, as they are masked behind the sweet, deep flavors of dark cocoa. 

Enjoy the Real Mushrooms mushroom chocolate bar as an afternoon pick me up or an after-dinner treat. A 5-pack is $18, while the 10-pack is $30. 

Real Mushrooms Organic Reishi Mushroom Capsules Review 

Reishi mushrooms have been used in Chinese medicine to boost immunity and fight off diseases. They do this by regulating white blood cells and boosting the immune system in its battle with illness. 

The Organic Reishi Mushroom Capsules are made from organic Reishi mushrooms that have been put through an extraction process of hot water and alcohol. Containing more than 15% beta-glucans, these capsules are easy to take and claim to promote longevity and general wellness. 

As described in a literature review[5] published by Pharmaceutical Biology, in preclinical studies (animal and in-vitro studies), the Reishi mushroom was found to have antioxidative and anti-inflammatory properties. It was also proven to reduce blood pressure, blood sugar, and cholesterol. 

However, the available evidence in humans is contradictory. Further research is needed to determine the potential cardiovascular benefits of this mushroom. 

Beta-glucans are present in the cell walls of mushrooms. A narrative review[6] published in Nutrients summarizes preliminary evidence regarding the potential benefits of beta-glucans. These include immunomodulatory, anti-inflammatory, and cardioprotective effects. However, clinical studies are required to validate these benefits in humans.Live better with 90 or 200 capsules of this product for $35-70.

Real Mushrooms Turkey Tail Extract Capsules Review

Real Mushrooms Organic Siberian Chaga Extract Powder Review

Packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, the Chaga mushroom is considered a veritable superfood. In nature, it looks like a black mass, but that dark color just means it’s rich in everything your body needs to function at a high level. 

Known for its potential to help fight off and prevent cancer, decrease inflammation, reduce signs of aging, and lower blood sugar and cholesterol, this superpowered mushroom has been used in everything from tea to beauty products. As stated in a narrative review[8] from the International Journal of Molecular Sciences, the Chaga mushroom was proven to have antioxidant and hepatoprotective properties in animal models. 

Moreover, in-vitro studies showed antitumor activity, preventing and killing off colorectal cancer cells. The authors describe a preclinical study in which Chaga mushrooms showed prebiotic effects in mice with chronic pancreatitis.

Containing >8% Beta-glucans, the Organic Siberian Chaga Extract Powder has a slight bitterness to it, the same way vanilla does, and can be brewed into tea or mixed into your favorite recipes. One bag has 30-60 servings and is $30. 

Real Mushrooms Organic Cordyceps Mushroom Extract Powder Review

Cordyceps mushrooms are smart. So smart, in fact, that they can control the brains of other creatures – primarily caterpillars – and get them to do what they want. It’s amazing to see how powerful and wonderful nature truly is. 

Not only is this mushroom a source of proteins and essential micronutrients (like minerals, vitamins B1, B2, B12, E, and K), it may also offer numerous health benefits. A literature review[9] in Molecules summarizes the available evidence from preliminary studies in which Cordyceps’ bioactive components showed beneficial properties. Some of them include antidiabetic activity, improved cholesterol profile, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant effects, anti-tumoral activity, and immune system modulation.

Although these findings are promising, further evidence is needed to elucidate the benefits of Cordyceps in humans.

The Real Mushrooms Cordyceps Mushroom Extract Powder contains >25% Beta-glucans to boost your bodily functions, making it easier to breathe and function during workouts, or just in day-to-day activities. Be at your best with a 60g pouch of this product for $30.

Real Mushrooms Turkey Tail Extract Review

These days, we need all the immune support we can get. Not just because it’s 2021, but because our immune system weakens as we age.

The Turkey Tail Extract contains >30% Beta-glucans to fight bacterial infections, reduce inflammation, and improve cardiovascular health. Toss in a scoop of this product (said to have an extremely mild taste) into your coffee each morning for a boost to your health. 

A 45-gram bag contains 30-45 servings and is $35. 

Side note: Even if you’re a spring chicken, stress can lead to a weakened immune system that makes your body more susceptible to infection. Another mushroom extract to try to help put some pep in your step is Real Mushrooms Tremella.

Real Mushrooms Organic Cordyceps Extract Capsules Review 

Our fungi friend, the Cordyceps. Scary, but also really cool. These mushrooms have a nutty, earthy, umami flavor that goes great with Asian cuisine or in savory dishes. 

You won’t get any of the taste in capsule form, so if you’d like a little pop of woody flavor, try the powder form. 

Capsules make taking your daily dose of goodness easier and are a good choice for those who want convenience. The Organic Cordyceps Extract Capsules come in a bottle of 120 or 300 capsules, with >25% Beta-glucans of heart-healthy fiber. 

Increase your performance and take on the day for $30-$60.

About Diet-to-Go

Diet-to-Go Review

Whether you’re a student, working full time, or caring for a family, it’s hard to make time to prepare healthy meals. In fact, one study[1] has shown that few adults meet the recommended fruit and vegetable intake guidelines.

Diet-to-Go is a meal delivery service that helps you lose weight by bringing healthy food choices right to your doorstep. The brand aims to help people establish a sustainable, affordable, and tasty approach to healthy eating.

The Diet-to-Go service features pre-portioned meals cooked by chefs in a USDA-certified kitchen. Epicurious rated the brand #1 for taste in a review of diet-plan services.

If you’re struggling to incorporate healthy habits into your lifestyle, this delivery service might be a convenient and tasty solution. Stay tuned as this Diet-to-Go review takes an in-depth look at the brand, its plans, meals, customer ratings, promos, and more to help you decide if it’s worth the buy.

Overview of Diet-to-Go

Diet-to-Go Review

Though meal delivery services have exploded in popularity over the past decade, Diet-to-Go was one of the trendsetters. Founded in 1991 by Hilton Davis, the company’s initial goal was to make eating healthy easier by delivering tasty, nutrient-dense, and low-calorie meals to the people of Virginia.

Since its inception, the brand has blossomed into a country-wide service. Today, its team is still aiming to change people’s perception of what healthy eating means. Not only does Diet-to-Go want to help you shed the extra pounds, but this service wants to ensure you maintain a healthy weight for life.

Diet-to-Go is constantly aiming to improve its products and services to satisfy its customers. The brand wants to provide the healthiest calorie-conscious meals that don’t lack in the taste department. To achieve this, the company encourages feedback from customers, including complaints.

Before diving deeper into the brand, this Diet-to-Go review will run over some highlights:

Highlights

  • Delivers prepared meals to your door
  • Four different menus to choose from
  • Transparents about ingredients and macronutrients in each dish
  • Large selection on each menu
  • Vegetarian options
  • Convenient and tasty
  • Promotions available

How Does Diet-to-Go Work?

Diet-to-Go Review

The Diet-to-Go diet meal delivery service lets you have full control over your plan. Once you make an account, you have the option to take a free diet analysis. Or, if you already know which menu you’d like to sign up for, you can head straight to it.

Once you start the Diet-to-Go plan builder, you will be given the option of four different menus:

  1. Balance
  2. Balance-D (diabetes-friendly)
  3. Keto-Carb30
  4. Vegetarian

From there, you’ll have the option to choose no seafood, women’s or men’s plan, 5 or 7 days per week, and 2 or 3 meals per day. Before you proceed to the shipping method, you will have the opportunity to see an overview of your order. This overview includes the weekly price and meal price breakdown, as well as shipping pricing and details.

If you’d like to purchase products separately, you can choose individual meals for your first shipment on your My Diet-to-Go page after placing your order.

Next, we’ll take a look at some example meals and macros and the cost of each plan.

Diet-to-Go Balance Menu Review

The Balance Menu is the company’s most popular plan for a reason. It features top-notch flavors with proper portions that have been approved by dietitians. Plus, this menu has been helping customers reach their ultimate weight goals for decades.

This plan also offers the widest selection of pre-portioned meals. Don’t like meat or seafood? Don’t worry, there will still be plenty of variety for you to choose from. Each dish features a healthy balance of macronutrients, as well as low sodium content.

One study[2] demonstrated that a high salt intake is associated with higher body fat, so keeping your salt content low can help you with your weight goal.

Some delicious Diet-to-Go meals you can anticipate on this menu are Chicken Stroganoff, Black Bean and Feta Cheese Wrap, Vegetable Ravioli, and Parmesan-Spinach Stuffed Chicken. These calorie-controlled options can help support your weight loss goal and improve overall health. 

Depending on your preferred options, this meal plan starts at $122 per week.

Diet-to-Go Balance Diabetes Menu Review 

This diabetes-friendly Balance-D Menu is designed to control blood sugar levels in a natural way. But, just because they are good for you doesn’t mean that the brand skipped out on the flavor. Diet-to-Go offers a variety of meals that are customizable, which customers with diabetes can trust.

Similar to the Balance Menu, the food on this menu consists of wholesome options that consider dietary factors such as sodium, protein, carbs, and fat. The control of carbohydrates[3], in particular, is essential for those who live with diabetes.

Tasty and balanced examples on the rotating menu include Mediterranean Pizza, Blackened Salmon, and Quinoa Egg Bites.

This Diet-to-Go meal plan subscription also starts at $122 per week, but your final price depends on how many meals you opt for.

Diet-to-Go Keto-Carb30 Menu Review

Keto is the trendiest diet today, so it’s no wonder that Diet-to-Go curated this low-carb plan.

The Keto-Carb30 Menu is suited for customers who follow a high-fat diet, similar to Atkins. The Keto diet has been shown to be an effective means of weight loss, while the studies[4] verify that the diet was first developed to manage epilepsy.

Keto diets work by putting the body into a metabolic state called ketosis, which switches to fat as its primary energy source instead of glucose. The Keto-Carb30 Menu is great for those who follow the keto diet.

This menu offers a variety of delicious meals that are filled with meat and cheese, as well as eggs. This diet plan is known to help people lose weight in a quick and effective manner. Diet-to-Go ensures that customers can easily build their plans to include 30 net carbs per day (or fewer).

Some options you’ll have when you sign up for this plan include Baked Chicken with Goat Cheese, Western Omelette, Pork BBQ Ribs, and Herbed Tilapia. Make eating keto feel easy with this Diet-to-Go weekly subscription that starts at $138 per week.

Diet-to-Go Vegetarian Menu Review

Have you decided to omit meat from your diet? Well, the Diet-to-Go weight loss meal delivery service still has an option for you. The Vegetarian Menu is exactly like the best-selling Balance Menu but excludes beef, poultry, pork, and fish.

This menu can help you achieve your weight loss goals in a healthy way. It ensures that you’re still getting the proper nutrients your body needs, despite the lack of animal proteins. Studies[5] have shown that following a vegetarian diet can be beneficial for weight loss, so whether or not you’re a vegetarian, this menu can help you achieve your weight goal.

Since no meat products are included in this menu, Diet-to-Go has other protein sources, like dairy, eggs, beans, and soy. You can get started with this plan for a minimum of $122/week on the Diet-to-Go website.

Diet-to-Go Review: Our Favorite Items

Okay, so the premise of healthy, pre-portioned, already-cooked meals delivered straight to your door sounds pretty convenient. But what will you actually be eating? Up next, this Diet-to-Go review will feature some of the fan-favorites from each menu.

Chocolate Zucchini Bread

You might have never seen the words ‘zucchini’ and ‘bread’ together before, but this trendy concoction has been all over health food blogs. The Diet-to-Go Chocolate Zucchini Bread is a deliciously convenient option for breakfast, dessert, or a midday snack.

Zucchini isn’t sweet enough to flavor this dish alone, so the chefs added bing cherries, applesauce, cocoa powder, cinnamon, low-fat cream cheese, orange marmalade, and cranberry sauce to round out the flavor. Other key ingredients include whole-grain oat flour and oat bran flakes cereal. Ingredients like whole grains[6] are known to help control body weight.

The Chocolate Zucchini Bread can be served with fruit, like mandarins or strawberries, for a well-rounded breakfast that feels like something you’d grab at a trendy brunch bar. It’s a diet-friendly alternative to chocolate cake or brownies, that’s for sure.

Offered on the Balance Menu, one serving size is 273g and contains 410 calories. Plus, you’ll get 12g of fat, 70g of carbs, and 9g of protein.

Aztec Quinoa Salad

If you’re looking for a lunchtime staple that won’t spike your blood pressure, then the Aztec Quinoa Salad from the Balance-D Menu is for you. Featuring complex carbohydrates from quinoa and delicious protein from chickpeas, you’ll be sure to hit your daily macros with this option.

But, Diet-to-Go didn’t skip on the flavor in favor of health. To delight your taste buds, this meal incorporates fire-roasted tomatoes, lime juice, garlic, sea salt, onion powder, cumin, black pepper, oregano, roasted red pepper, scallions, and more.

One serving size is 325g and contains 450 calories. You’ll also get 21g of fat, 54g of carbs, and 14g of protein—not to mention 90% of your daily vitamin C dose.

Beef Tenderloin with Red Wine Sauce

Does your mouth water whenever you think about a juicy steak? Well, with Diet-to-Go’s Keto-Carb30 Menu, you can easily incorporate luxurious meals into your diet plan. (Even though it tastes like you shouldn’t be able to.)

The Beef Tenderloin with Red Wine Sauce is paired with creamed kale and seasoned cauliflower for a well-rounded meal that keeps your carbs low and your fats high – two things that are essential for a keto diet. The decadent beef tenderloin is complemented by a red wine sauce that features tamari sauce, butter, shallots, tomato paste, and other flavorful ingredients.

One serving size is 336g and contains 450 calories. Plus, it’ll keep you in ketosis with 11g of carbohydrates and 27g of fats.

Spanish Stuffed Peppers

Calling all vegetarians, these Spanish Stuffed Peppers are featured on the Diet-to-Go Vegetarian Menu. This incredibly low-calorie lunch or dinner option contains just 210 calories per 471g serving.

This dish features green peppers that have been stuffed with a blend of vegetarian refried beans, lentils, soy crumbles, feta cheese, tomato, black beans, roasted red pepper, and other nutritious additions. Key seasonings include cilantro, garlic, onion, and green chili peppers.

This delicious, nutritious, and vegetarian-friendly option offers 3g of fat, 33g of carbs, and 12g of protein. This Diet-to-Go review recommends pairing it with some rice.

How Much is Diet-to-Go?

Diet-to-Go Review

This Diet-to-Go review found that the subscription prices vary depending on your customizations. The Balance, Balance-D, and Vegetarian meal plans all start at $122/week, while the Keto-Carb30 menu starts at $138/week.

For the minimum price point of $122/week or $138/week, you’re looking at 5 days per week and 2 meals a day (excluding breakfast). You can also order for:

  • 5 days per week, 3 meals a day for $144/week ($164/week with Keto-Carb30)
  • 7 days per week, 2 meals a day for $163/week ($187/week with Keto-Carb30)
  • 7 days per week, 3 meals a day for $180/week ($205/week with Keto-Carb30)

As for individual meal prices, the breakdown suggests $10 per meal.

Diet-to-Go Reviews: What Do Customers Think?

Diet-to-Go Review

The brand’s pre-portioned meals look tasty, sound healthy, and suggest they’ll be more convenient than cooking breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day. But, this Diet-to-Go review wanted to see what customers were really saying.

We sourced testimonials from the brand’s website, Healthline, ConsumerAffairs, and Yelp. These reviews uncover truths about product quality, taste, effectiveness, and customer service.

On its website, Diet-to-Go features ratings from different companies. Epicurious, who rated the brand the best for taste, gave it a 4.5/5 star rating. Overall, they were pleased with how transparent the service is about what’s in its meals:

“Diet to Go gives you choices—plenty of them. You can sign up for low-carb, low-fat, or low-fat vegetarian meals. You pick whether you want to consume 1,200 or 1,600 calories a day, plus the nutrition info is available on the site. Meal options are pre-selected, but customization for allergies and sensitivities are allowed.

On Yelp, Diet-to-Go has 240 reviews with a 3.5/5 star average. Comments are quite split. In terms of positives, users enjoy how convenient the service is, as well as how easy it makes sticking to a healthy lifestyle. Take this example:.

Easy and convenient! Plus everything tastes so good. It’s been so easy to stick with because there’s a great selection. It’s quick and easy prep makes this easy and foolproof. Down 9 lbs my first week. I’ve called a couple times and spoke with Jo. She has been so supportive and encouraging. I feel like I have my own support system.”

But, other Diet-to-Go reviews express dissatisfaction with the meals: “What a waste of money! Terrible food, Not fresh. 1 try was enough. I couldn’t eat any of the lunches or dinners. And it certainly isn’t healthy. There are other choices available on the market that are far better.

Meanwhile, one reviewer on ConsumerAffairs was not too pleased with the Diet-to-Go service: “I was very excited to receive these meals since I decided to lose some weight. It turned out some portions are so big I had to split them… One meal with ground chicken was like ground paper. It was so dry and tasteless I could not eat it. Another meal was two buns with a lot of melted cheese and few slices of tomato. I am not sure how I could possibly lose weight...”

On this website, Diet-to-Go ranks at 3.7/5 stars from just 11 ratings. Other customers were quite pleased with the service and happy that the meals rotate every few weeks, offering more variety.

Although we can acknowledge negative reviews found on Diet-to-Go’s food delivery service, we know that individual taste varies. Additionally, maintaining a healthy lifestyle isn’t the same for everyone. Judging solely based on the reviews, the brand rates pretty well in our eyes.

Is Diet-to-Go Subscription Worth It?

Diet-to-Go Review

By now, you’re probably wondering, is Diet-to-Go good? From our research, we think the brand has good intentions, good reviews, and well-rounded meals. When it comes to subscribing to the service, we think there are definitely some people who would benefit from it.

If you struggle with shopping for healthy groceries, if you’re looking for diabetes-friendly options, or if you need help with portion control, then we recommend looking into Diet-to-Go. It’s quite convenient having meals set up for you, especially if you’re not someone who is creative in the kitchen.

Diet-to-Go is also a great option for busy people who don’t have a lot of time to dedicate to cooking. Everything is cooked, so all you have to do is reheat and enjoy. Of course, this will also save you from the (seemingly) endless pile of dishes at the end of the day.

We were a bit skeptical about the frozen food process, but after exploring the Diet-to-Go reviews Reddit has to offer, we learned that many customers feel many options taste like home-cooked meals.

Some people require assistance when exploring a healthier lifestyle. Diet-to-Go with intermittent fasting is also a great option to try for weight loss. Its meal plans make fasting feel easier and controlled. At a more affordable price point, Diet-to-Go is a great system to explore, especially with its free cancellation policy.

About UMZU 

UMZU Natural Supplements Review

UMZU makes effective, natural hormone and wellness supplements that restore healthy balance to the body. Their line of supplements contains clinical doses of quality ingredients tailored to the needs of both men and women. 

One study[1] demonstrated that over half of US adults used some kind of herb or supplement to treat a specific condition they suffered from. That’s a lot of people! If you’re someone who deals with a bothersome condition that isn’t necessary to treat with traditional western medicines, natural supplements might be the route for you.

UMZU has a following of 63k on Facebook and 45k on Instagram. UMZU founder Christopher Walker’s Instagram account, on which he heavily promotes his brand, boosts those more modest numbers with 322k followers

This UMZU natural supplements review will take an in-depth look at the brand and its bestselling supplements, customer reviews, perks, promotions, and more to help you decide if these products are the right choice for you.

Overview of UMZU 

UMZU Natural Supplements Review

UMZU first began taking shape when neuroscience student Christopher Walker was in university. Diagnosed with a tumor on his pituitary gland that caused hormonal imbalances, Walker researched clinical studies to come up with a natural way to combat his condition. 

Although he was not able to get rid of the tumor, Chris eventually devised a method to cure his imbalances. He published his findings and began building a community of men who got results from using the same formula. 

Since sourcing the ingredients proved tricky for many, Chris began getting requests to create a supplement of his own. During this process, he also heard that many women were seeking natural remedies for hormonal imbalances as well. 

UMZU Natural Supplements Review

Partnering with Darren Crawford and Mike Dobson, Chris founded UMZU in Boulder, Colorado, in 2015. UMZU’s natural supplements reflect the brand’s core belief that, “the human body is a self-healing organism that when supported correctly cannot only heal itself but allow itself to thrive.”

Today, UMZU has an expansive product line and its own diet system, the UMZU Thermo Diet. Before we delve into those, this UMZU natural supplements review will give a topline view of the brand’s highlights:

Highlights

  • A variety of supplements that provide several desired health benefits 
  • Made from natural, high quality, research-backed ingredients
  • Transparent approach
  • Learning center provides more information on their products

What is UMZU?

UMZU Natural Supplements Review

UMZU is a natural supplement company that helps men and women reclaim their hormonal balance.

These supplements are born from science and experience, formulated with research-backed ingredients.

UMZU products have brought balance and real results to many people struggling with hormonal and other health issues like testosterone levels, brain function, hair growth, and more. 

Many of their supplements come with one-time purchases of 30-day supplies, which is over 180 tablets/capsules to keep your health issues at bay. But, subscriptions are offered for those interested in long-term use.

Are UMZU products safe? 

UMZU Natural Supplements Review 1

UMZU products are generally considered safe, but you should consult your healthcare professional before starting a new supplement. For example, Redwood increases blood flow, and for that reason should not be used by anyone who uses blood thinners.  

UMZU Vitamins & Supplements Review 

UMZU has created many supplements and pills that work for some unique health issues. From testosterone support, hair growth, and even brain function, this brand has thought of the everyday issues we all face and come up with a healthy solution for each of them. 

This UMZO natural supplements review will now take you through the brand’s most-loved products. So have your credit card ready, some of these supplements may be just what you need to make your everyday health issues a distant memory. 

UMZU Redwood Review

Aptly named for its ability to increase circulation to both the upper and nether regions, the UMZU Redwood blood flow dietary supplement promotes warmer extremities, more energy throughout the day, and increased performance in the bedroom. 

With ingredients including Vitamin C, garlic[2], horse chestnut extract, and pine bark extract[3], UMZU Redwoodpills increase blood flow, therefore improving circulation and helping overall performance.

Flow through your day (and night) better with a 30-day (180-capsule) supply of Redwood for $40 for a one-time purchase, or $34 with a subscription.

UMZU Testro-X Review

Harnessing the power of minerals like zinc and boron with a blend of naturally stimulating vitamins and herbs, this UMZU supplement enhances your energy, stamina, and power

Zinc[4] is required in high enough levels for the pituitary gland to release the hormones responsible for stimulating testosterone production. So don’t be surprised if you suddenly start killing it in the gym. 

Lift those T levels up where they belong with 30 days’ worth of Testro-X for $55, or get the 15% discount when you subscribe and score it for $47.

UMZU zuPoo Review

Brace yourself: on their website, UMZU cites the fact that the average American carries 5 to 20 extra pounds of poop in their intestines daily. That alone is enough to inspire a colon cleanse, and UMZU’s zuPOO can help you achieve it safely and naturally.

This 15-day cleanse is not for the faint of heart: users typically find themselves going to the bathroom up to 5 times per day for the first 24 to 48 hours, but without any pain or distress.

Using natural ingredients like slippery elm and aloe, zuPOO cleans your digestive tract and supports a newly clean and healthy lifestyle. Slippery elm has been shown in one study[5] to improve symptoms of Inflammatory Bowel Disease.

Make sure to follow up with probiotics to support your intestinal health. Get the ultimate in natural waste removal for $30, or $26 with a subscription. 

UMZU SENSOLIN Review

A blood sugar imbalance can wreck your energy and mood. Sensolin helps you control your blood sugar levels naturally and reduce appetite and cravings. It accomplishes these things thanks to ingredients like chromium[6], which has been shown to improve metabolism in those with suboptimal chromium levels. 

It can also improve digestion, thanks to ingredients like cinnamon. One study[7] showed cinnamon modulates the insulin response, which helps lower blood sugar levels.

Head off that afternoon crash and save yourself that trip to the vending machine with Sensolin, in a 90-capsule bottle for a one-time purchase price of $50. 

UMZU FLORACIL50 Review

For those who don’t know that our intestines are filled with bacteria, well, now you do.

But that bacteria isn’t all bad: without the good bacteria to help digestion and fight off the harmful bacteria, we may experience constant stomach issues, like bloating and gas. That’s where UMZU’s Floracil50 comes in.

This extra-strength probiotic contains 50 billion CFUs (colony-forming units) from 8 handpicked bacterial strains (which sounds gross if you’re new to probiotics, but please keep reading). These bacteria help to support gut function and digestion[8].

In addition, this product also helps with immune system function. The gut guards against outside offenders, like bad bacteria. Keeping the gut healthy with probiotics can improve its’ natural barrier function.

Once you’ve cleansed your system with zuPOO, show your gut some love with a 30-day supply of Floracil50, which goes for $45 for a one-off purchase and only $39 with a subscription. 

UMZU CORTIGON Review

Stress attacks our brain, our immune system, our gut, our skin, our hearts… it’s everywhere, all the time.

But, in addition to heart-healthy exercise, immune-boosting foods, and those small moments of peace, UMZU’s Cortigon can help us fight off this definitive malady of the modern world. 

With its blend of herbs, vitamins, and minerals that are clinically proven to lower cortisol (the stress hormone), Cortigon not only helps naturally lower stress, it also improves brain function, energy levels, and mental clarity.

Among the ingredients in this product are vitamins B6 and B12, which have been shown time and time again to be superpowers when it comes to reducing stress. One study[9] showed vitamin B6, in particular, to be inversely associated with stress symptoms. 

Whatever your stress-reduction routine, you can give it a clinically proven boost with Cortigon for $40. 

UMZU zuACV + Prebiotics Review

Easily affected by stress, food, and medication, our intestinal balance is often compromised, which can lead to several negative health issues[10]

ZuACV + Prebiotics contains gut-boosting apple cider vinegar, which has been shown to help to restore good bacteria[11] to our guts.

This product also helps strengthen our immune system with prebiotic fibers from ingredients like chicory root and fibrous, immune-boosting inulin. Chicory and inulin are important builders of gut immunity by improving gut function. 

Give your gut the right stuff with zuACV + Prebiotics, which goes for $35 for a one-off and $30 for subscribers. 

UMZU Ultimate Hair Restoration Sack Review

For everything you will need for hair growth and some added benefits with all-around health, the Ultimate Hair Restoration Stack provides the brand’s signature supplements including: 

  • Betaine
  • Cortigon
  • Vitamin D3
  • Choline
  • Thyrite
  • zuCOLLAGEN

We’ve already gone over the Cortigon supplement earlier in this Umzu Natural Supplements review, so let’s take a closer look at the rest of the products in this bundle in more detail below:

Betaine

Betaine is a chemical naturally found in the body. A study has shown that betaine supplementation can significantly help with digestion. 

Vitamin D3

Vitamin D3, provided in liquid form by UMZU, is not only a sunshine vitamin but also one used for bone health[12], immune-boosting[13], and hormonal function[14]

Many like to use it for its positive effects on wellbeing, especially during the cold winter times when we are most deprived of the sun’s happy rays. Vitamin D3 is a well-rounded supplement for mental and physical health.

Choline

Choline is a nutrient found naturally in some foods, but why would you consume it as a supplement? Choline is converted to a neurotransmitter[15] called acetylcholine in the body, which is responsible for essential nervous system functions like muscle control, mood, and memory. 

Thyrite

Thyrite is for your thyroid, a powerful gland[16] in your neck. Along with thyroid support, Thyrite can prevent hair loss. It is well known that some endocrine disorders, like hypothyroidism, can result in dry, coarse hair and even hair loss[17].  Having a healthy thyroid can also aid in weight loss.

zuCOLLAGEN

Last but not least, zuCOLLAGEN is UMZU’s special protein powder. Collagen is a natural protein in your body, and when there isn’t enough, your skin elasticity, joints, hair, and nail health can all suffer the consequences. zuCOLLAGEN specifically is a blend of 5 types of collagen to give you a comprehensive protein supplement for your inside and outside beauty.

These supplements are all useful to your health in their own way, but all together they make the perfect hair-growth system.

The brand recommends using all of this daily to provide the body with all of the nutrients needed for stronger, thicker hair and restoring hormonal balances[18], gland functions, and supporting gut health.

Coming with options of different flavors and the ability to leave out the Vitamin D3, the Ultimate Hair Restoration Stack comes for $176 for a one-time purchase and $150 at the subscription price.

UMZU Reviews: What Do Customers Think?

UMZU Review

This UMZU natural supplements review took to the internet to find out what customers are saying about UMZU products.

Below, you will find reviews from the company website, Reddit, and Amazon discussing the brand’s various supplements, their results and side effects, and their prices. 

Cortigon is rated an average of 4.3/5 stars based on309 ratingson the company website. Commenters praised the product’s immediate and lasting results in combating stress.

One UMZU supplement review describes the user’s experience with the product:

Before taking cortigon I had very bad anxiety…I noticed a massive difference after the first day of using it and by the third day my anxiety had pretty much disappeared…[after a month], I am still noticing a continuing and consistent change in how I feel and my energy levels.” 

As far as negative reviews go, the main concern was that although they were pleased by the results, many customers feared that they wouldn’t be able to sustain the treatment due to the high price. 

UMZU Sensolin reviews on the brand website give the blood sugar support a stunning 4.2/5 stars from 474 ratings, none giving less than 3 stars.

UMZU Testro X reviews return that same sterling rating with an astonishing 66% 5-star rankings out of 2,694 total.

A Reddit thread discussed the effects of UMZU Redwood pills, noting how they remedied issues with cold extremities and aided in weight loss:

I’ve been using Redwood for 2 months and it works…I chronically suffered from cold extremities and that is a thing of the past. Also paired with some mild bodyweight exercise and some diet modifications it will help the fat melt off.” 

On Amazon, 8,168 UMZU Redwood supplement reviews give the product an average of 4.3/5 stars.

One customer spoke about how it helped increase his circulation and boost his energy levels: “I also feel like my blood is flowing well and feel a little fatigue when not using it.” 

We say it all the time: body chemistry is a tricky thing, and especially where dietary supplements are concerned, not everyone is going to experience the same benefits.

Even the most highly touted products may not have what your body needs, so it’s always about finding what works for you.

UMZU Natural Supplements Review

This UMZU natural supplements review has read enough customer reviews to see that, for many users, UMZU supplements are making a huge difference in their lives.

The convenience factor is also a huge plus, as the combined supplements eliminate the necessity of sourcing five or six different vitamins and minerals yourself.

One possible pricing solution is a subscription, which helps you save money on UMZU products and which you can cancel at any time. If you’re still on the fence, UMZU also offers a 60-day money-back guarantee.

Their goal is ambitious: to provide high-quality supplements with all-natural ingredients and great taste.

Inno Supps isn’t just helping people get stronger and healthier bodies. They are also about giving back. The brand has partnered with Vitamin Angels to help children worldwide get the nutrients they need, fighting malnutrition in young kids.

Inno Supps Natural BCAA Supplements Review

This Inno Supps natural supplements review will feature the brand’s best-selling weight loss, muscle growth, and strength gainer products.

Starting with an Inno Supps Night Shred review, you will learn about the key ingredients, health benefits, and price points of Inno Supps’s products.

Inno Supps Night Shred Review

In one package, Inno Supps Night Shred tackles stress eating, restless nights, and morning cravings, while also enhancing nighttime metabolism and muscle recovery, and with all-natural ingredients.

Inno Supps Night Shred has CLA + L-carnitine tartrate, which is known to help with weight loss. One study showed that CLA effectively reduced BMI[1] in a sample of 30 participants. Another review of 37 clinical trials found that L-carnitine supplementation significantly reduces BMI[2].

As a bonus, GABA, Chamomile, Passionflower, and Valerian Root all work together to help you wake up rested and ready for a morning workout. Chamomile and passionflower have long been used as natural sleep aids. Additionally, a clinical trial showed that valerian root can improve sleep-quality[3].

Meanwhile, ashwagandha[4] and melatonin help you stay asleep, reducing your chances of waking up in the middle of your sleep cycle.

It’s recommended to use it for at least 90-180 days before expecting results. Be patient, it is working even though it doesn’t seem like it for the first little while.  

This Inno Supps Night Shred review recommends visiting the product page right now for a 31% discount on a single $65 purchase or a 45% discount with an auto subscription.Either way, it comes with a free guide to optimizing sleep and fat burning.

Inno Supps Advanced ISO Protein Review

Need a protein powder that actually goes the distance? The Advanced ISO Protein contains 25g of Whey Isolate Protein and is easy to mix into your smoothie, shake, or even water. This type of protein has been shown to have good digestibility, meaning it works quickly to serve your body’s protein needs.

The protein is also lactose-free for those of us that are sensitive to dairy, and it comes in 5 flavors including Vanilla, Caramel Coconut, and Cinnamon Swirl flavors.

What makes the protein as ‘advanced’ as the brand claims, is the lack of carbohydrates and fat making it lean and simple to use for pure strength and a protein kick.

Made with zero artificial sweeteners, this protein promotes muscle recovery for overall strength without the feeling of being bloated. As an added plus, BCAAs (Branched-Chain Amino Acids) might help to reduce muscle damage[‌5], thereby reducing your recovery time and helping you get back to the gym for your next workout faster.

The Advanced ISO Protein comes in a 34.1 oz container (25 servings) for $50, down from $58.

Inno Supps Max Strength Review

This creatine-based supplement is unabashedly for gym bros (and ambitious athletes of all genders). Inno Supps touts Max Strength as giving “massive ‘pumps’ and enhanced endurance,” to “rapidly pack on slabs of lean muscle.” Creatine is one of the most popular natural workout supplements, and it is also among the most well-researched supplements. Studies have shown it to be effective in increasing strength performance[6].

Ironically, Inno Supps Max Strength is only available in flavors reminiscent of children’s cereal: Blueberry Lemonade and Sour Watermelon Candy.

As one reviewer wrote, “Sour watermelon is not the best or worst flavor but it does NOT have any of that fake/artificial sweetener taste which is great.”

It’s priced at $48, but is now on discount for $40

Inno Supps Inno Shred Review

This around-the-clock fat burner comes in a vegan-friendly capsule format and relies on natural ingredients like Capsimax and Grains of Paradise. One study showed Capsimax to effectively increase resting energy expenditure[7] – or the number of calories you burn during the inactive state. Similarly, Grains of Paradise has been shown to increase energy expenditure[8], so you’ll burn more calories. So, if you buy Inno Shred, expect to sweat a lot.

In keeping with Inno Supps’s health-conscious mission, Inno Shred comes in a stimulant (200mg of PurCaf organic caffeine per serving) and a non-stimulant format.

By activating brown adipose tissue to ignite your metabolism[9], Inno Shred can burn at least 116 additional calories per day without jittery side effects.

Its regular price is $70, but you can buy it right now for a $20 discount.

Inno Supps also offers a bundle of three Inno Shred containers into one discounted package. This is ideal for anyone looking to passively burn fat on a regular basis. The bundle is discounted down to $123 from $180.

Inno Supps Natural BCAA Review

Inno Supps shows that they are a committed “hydro homie” with this hydrating amino acid blend. Rapidly absorbed, Natural BCAA protects your body from muscular breakdown and speeds up the post-workout recovery process that is crucial for building lean muscles.

The included Potassium and Organic Coconut Water Powder combine into a powerful, endurance-boosting electrolyte mixture[10].

Inno Supps Natural BCAA stands out from the competition for being 100% natural, opting to add taste with Stevia and Monk instead of the ubiquitous sucralose. 

This leads to interesting flavor options. Currently, Sour Apple is in supply, with more of the popular Guava Paradise waiting to come back in stock.

Inno Supps Natural BCAA is currently on a $10 discount, sold at $40.

Inno Supps Storm Maker Review

Inno Supps Storm Maker is a clean pre-workout mix designed to amplify power and focus. This long-lasting energy booster accomplishes this by using natural Nitric Oxide. Nitric Oxide is known to have an essential role in regulating blood flow[11].

In keeping with Inno Supps’s tropical-circus flavor theme, Storm Maker is currently available in Blackberry Lemonade, Peach Mango, and Pink Lemon Rush. It has zero gluten, soy, or GMO ingredients and contains 270 mg of caffeine.

Inno Supps recommends taking it 15-30 minutes before a workout for best results. This review sleuthed out another hot tip: before your next workout, stack Storm Maker with Max Strength for maximum muscle pump and recovery.

The Storm Maker rings in at $50 ($40 on sale).

Inno Supps CLA 1200 Review

A potent fat burner, Inno Supps CLA 1200, uses naturally occurring conjugated linoleic acid to create a higher metabolic activity with each soft gel capsule. It is designed to support fat loss and lean muscle growth. Combined with a good workout, this supplement can help set you up for success with your weight goals.

Without getting too technical, the key ingredient, conjugated linoleic acid, is a fatty acid similar to omega-6 and sourced from sunflowers. It’s commonly consumed in foods like beef and dairy, but only at low levels.

Inno Supps CLA 1200 comes in the form of soft gels, to be taken two to three times a day, with or without meals. It is currently available at a 20% discount for $28 or $22 with an auto subscription.

Inno Supps 3 Bottles of Inno Shred Review

Inno Supps has bundled three Inno Shred containers into one discounted package. This is ideal for anyone looking to passively burn fat on a regular basis.

Each Inno Shred capsule contains all-natural ingredients like Capsimax and Grains of Paradise that will get you shedding those pounds from day one. You can choose between the stimulant (organic coffee) and the non-stimulant version for each container.

The stimulant and non-stimulant Inno Shred options both contain alpha yohimbine and green tea extract. Combined, these ingredients take the fat trapped in your cells and put them in your bloodstream, where it is burned up for weight loss and an energy boost.

The bundle is discounted down to $123 from $180.

Inno Supps Danielle Natoni Stack Review

The Danielle Natoni Stack is a 100% natural supplement bundle. It contains five Inno Supps products: Volcarn 2000, Night Shred, Inno Shred, Turmeric + Beet Root Complex, and Inno Cleanse.

The only difference between this stack and the Inno Supps Thermo Stack is the addition of the Turmeric + Beet Root Complex. It eases joint pain by reducing inflammation and improving digestion and gut health. Turmeric, one of the main ingredients in the product, has a long history of being used for inflammation[12].

There are six Volcarn 2000 all-natural flavors to choose from that make the potent thermogenic sweet to taste. Impressively, Inno Supps manages this without using damaging artificial sweeteners.

All in all, the Danielle Natoni Stack is the best weight loss bundle provided by Inno Supps. It provides all of the benefits laid out in the Inno Supps Night Shred review, and more.

This Inno Supps shred stack is currently on a 47% off discount, offered for $140.  

Inno Supps Reviews: What Do Customers Think?

Inno Supps Night Shred Review

Inno Supps has definitely made a name for themselves in the world of fitness, weight loss, and supporting brain function. Before we get into the feedback directly from customers, here is a word from Supplement Database, a site dedicated to rating supplement brands.

In their review of the brand, Supplement Database highly recommended Inno Supps’ Night Shred due to it’s:

  • Effectiveness
  • Ingredients
  • Reliability
  • Rank within its category (compared to other brands)

In all of these criteria, the brand received positive feedback and rankings with the Effectiveness ranking highest among all of the criteria.

In the review itself, it was stated that Night Shred earned a thumbs-up in this category because 76% of its claims are rated as either extremely or moderately effective.”

The vast majority of customers on other forums gave Inno Supps products 5/5 stars.

For example, Inno Supps Night Shred reviews have already amassed over 6,000 5-star ratings across the Inno Supps website and official Amazon page, with a little over 8,000 reviews in total.

More workout-focused products, such as Storm Maker and Max Strength, are less popular but have a nearly equal percentage of 5-star reviews on Amazon and their website.

Still, one of the highest-rated products on these sites is the Night Shred, with many customers stating that their sleep has improved and helped with weight loss. One satisfied customer stated:

“I get quality sleep, and I know this because I use a sleep app and I also feel more refreshed in the morning. Mixed with a good diet, exercise, and this product I’ve lost 8 pounds in 1.5 months. Really recommend this product.”

Whereas another review commented on how the effects of the Night Shred do come slowly, but are still effective nonetheless:

“So far so good. Haven’t seen much of a difference yet because I have been inconsistent with my diet and exercise… Definitely sleeping more soundly instead of waking up and checking the clock every few hours!”

The brand has a 3.2/5 star review average on Trustpilot with 41 reviewers in total. One customer, in particular, started an entire Inno Supps regime, which had some very good results:

“I purchased the Inno Cleanse, Night Shred, and ‘Inno Shred’ purely as they suited my goals… within just 5 days of taking these products I feel much less bloated and, … I am MUCH more comfortable and I’m definitely burning more calories during my workouts.”

Overall, Inno Supps customers leave extremely positive reviews, especially about weight loss and sleep aid products like Inno Shred and Night Shred.

But, two negative points are that Inno Supps is not BBB accredited, and many Trustpilot reviewers complained about poor customer service and shipping delays:

“I ordered nearly £90 worth of products on 30th January and I haven’t received any items. Customer service has been awful/non-existent with messages being ignored.”

Is Inno Supps Worth It?

Inno Supps Night Shred Review

Whether you’re a supplement aficionado or a total newbie, Inno Supps is definitely worth your time and money.

Bundles like the Inno Supps Thermo Shred Stack get you around-the-clock fat burning, muscle recovery, sleep aid, and a toxin flush in one easy shipment. 

Not to mention, Inno Supps is using big discounts to find new customers and establish themselves as a top supplements brand. They’ve stacked up an impressive amount of verified 5-star reviews for a company that’s barely two years old!

This Inno Supps review also found downsides. While no product is guaranteed to work for every consumer, a few Inno Supps Night Shred reviews noted worse sleep after using the product and no fat loss.

Another downside is that Inno Supps products cost more than the offerings of generic supplement brands. That said, when compared against brands specializing in 100% natural products, Inno Supps’s pricing is very competitive.

But, if the price is what’s got you down about the brand, you can rely on the subscription service offered which provides discounts on every shipment. Or, if you want to try these supplements before spending the money, rely on the brand’s free trial option.

About Athletic Greens Powder 

Athletic Greens Powder Review

I don’t get enough greens. There, I said it. I’m also not keen on the whole synthetic multivitamin thing, I prefer the idea of getting my nutrition from whole foods. A dilemma, I know. But that’s where Athletic Greens comes in.

The importance of a healthy diet[1], including the right proportion of macro and micronutrients, has been widely studied. Nutritional requirements vary by age, life phase, the type and amount of exercise you practice, and the existence of certain conditions. 

In circumstances where your diet cannot fulfill your body’s needs, you may benefit from diet supplements[2]. The best way to know if you need to complement your diet with multivitamins and minerals is to have a professional consultation.

Innovative companies like Athletic Greens have found success in creating supplements made from high-quality vitamins and minerals sourced from whole-foods. Their powerful NSF certified formula uses 75 clean, quality ingredients to support recovery, immunity, energy, and digestion.

But don’t just take it from me. The brand’s list of supporters includes health expert and author of The 4 Hour Body, Tim Ferris, and comedian and sports aficionado, Joe Rogan. Athletic Greens has also been featured in publications like Forbes, Entrepreneur, and Women’s Running, and a social community of 490k.

The accolades for this company really go on and on—but is it really worth it? In this Athletic Greens review, I intend to find out. I’ll tell you everything you need to know about the brand and its signature supplement to help you decide if it’s right for your life.

Overview of Athletic Greens Powder 

Athletic Greens Powder Review

Chris Ashenden started Athletic Greens in 2009 after struggling with gut issues for years. Although he followed a healthy and balanced diet, his body wasn’t getting the nutrition it needed from the food he ate. Chris set out to design a supplement that offered powerful results regardless of age or activity level

Athletic Greens operates like a well-oiled machine with a heart for humanity. Their supplement is produced in a TGA-registered, Good Manufacturing Practice Certified facility in New Zealand. Every individual pack of their supplement is 100% traceable which allows the company to get on top of any issues that arrive quickly and efficiently. 

I don’t know about you, but this brings me a sense of peace considering how many different ingredients are packed into its signature supplement.

The company makes it a priority to give back to communities in need. Chris Ashenden started Fundación Da Alegría, a charity that provides low-income children with nutrient-rich meals. They also support other charities like Urban Light and Mary’s Meals

A combination of adaptogens, antioxidants, and vitamins improves brain, gut, muscle, and cell health for vibrant living. For a complete list of nutrients inside the mix, I suggest reading the Athletic Greens nutrition label.

Next in this Athletic Greens review, I’ll give you the details on the brand’s bestsellers and what their action-packed ingredients actually do.

Athletic Greens The Pouch Review

Made from 75 highly absorbable ingredients, The Pouch contains 30 servings of greens powder. I think this option is great to keep in your locker at the gym or in your kitchen cupboard to enjoy before breakfast. Athletic Greens work best when taken in the morning on an empty stomach. This ensures they’re optimally absorbed.

I will note here in this Athletic Greens powder review, however, that you should refrigerate the mix after opening.

To use, take one scoop and mix with 5-10 ounces of cold water. Pro tip: add the water to your shaker first to allow for the best mix possible. Once combined, shake thoroughly.

If you’d rather drink your greens with juice or milk, you totally can. Athletic Greens is flavored with papaya, broccoli, cherry, carrot, pineapple, and vanilla. Although it does still taste “green”, the flavor profile is slightly sweet with fruity undertones. 

Athletic Greens Powder Review

Because each scoop contains 12 servings of fruits and vegetables, you’re technically topped up for the day[3], but I found it recommended to still follow a healthy eating plan.

Want some inspiration? Be sure to check out Athletic Greens recipes for ways to mix your supplement with frozen fruits for a delicious smoothie.

A pouch of Athletic Greens Ultimate Daily is $99 for a one-time purchase or subscribers can pay $79. Opt for the double subscription save another $5 on each bag.

Athletic Greens Travel Packs Review 

I love when functional products are also convenient. I wonder what the world did before travel packs were invented. Perhaps dole out single-serving scoops into ZipLock bags?

Travel Packs feed your cells with the same vital Athletic Greens ingredients as The Pouch. The only difference is that they come in convenient, pre-measured, single-serving pouches.

I’d suggest keeping a few in your bag for an easy energy boost on your way to work, but I also think they’re a great option for gym-goers. My favorite part about the Travel Packs? Unlike an opened large pouch, they don’t need to be refrigerated. You can literally take them anywhere.

If you’re a subscribing customer and would like to see how these can help with your routine, head to the Athletic Greens Tim page to get five free Travel Packs with your subscription to The Pouch. 

A 30-serving bag of Athletic Greens Travel Packs is $109 for a one-time purchase or $89 when you subscribe. Double subscribe to save another $5 on each bag.

Athletic Greens Powder Subscription Review

Athletic Greens was designed as a daily supplement and each of their pouches or boxes contains 30 servings. You can choose from The Pouch or Travel Packs options that both include a month’s supply. Their subscriptions are automatically set to arrive every 30 days but you can customize your delivery date to every 15 days.

If you wish to take AthleticGreens every other day or only occasionally, you can set your subscription plan to 45 or 60 days. I learned that it’s super simple to change your frequency. Simply log into your account and select which option fits your schedule best.

If you would like to pause, skip, or cancel your order, you can do so by contacting Athletic Greens customer service by phone, chat, or email. Something I think is worth mentioning: Your Athletic Greens subscription will auto-renew every month until canceled.

Athletic Greens Powder Review

For those who do not want to subscribe, Athletic Greens products can be bought as a one-time purchase, however, when you do subscribe, you save 20%.

Who is Athletic Greens for?

The supplement is free from common allergens such as gluten, dairy, and eggs, so it is suitable for most diets including gluten-free, keto, and vegan

It contains body and brain-boosting elements such as:

  • Enzyme & Mushroom Complex
  • Superfood Complex
  • Vitamins & Minerals
  • Plant Extract, Herbs & Antioxidants 
  • Dairy-free Probiotics 

Athletic Greens offers one potent supplement that delivers a wide range of results. From energy to improved brain function to gut health, their powerhouse formula does it all. I think it’s a fantastic option for anyone looking for a supplement that does it all.

Athletic Greens Powder Reviews: What Do Customers Think?

Athletic Greens Powder Review

Athletic Greens may have a simple lineup but its products are anything but. To help you understand what they’re really like, I hit up the world wide web for feedback. Here’s what I found:

Athletic Greens has extremely high ratings online with customers reporting noticeable results. The brand has a 4.5/5 star rating from 14,076 shoppers on athleticgreens.com.

Judging from that score, I don’t need to tell you how many people love the powder. One Athletic Greens review I saw speaks of the effectiveness of the supplement for gut-health. It reads:

I’ve never in my life written a review, but I HAD to write this review. For five months I was having terrible digestive issues… I modified my diet severely, to no avail…Then I tried Athletic Greens…they FIXED my gut problem.”

Turning to the online marketplace, I noticed the 4.5/5 star average from 2,979 Athletic Greens Amazon customers. One customer who rated Athletic Greens as 5-stars speaks of increased energy and reduced inflammation. They wrote:

“Due to the Fibroid [tumor] I am constantly fatigued. Athletic Greens has given me back my body, what I mean is the inflammation in my body is reduced & easier for me to control.

Athletic Greens Powder Review

Reddit users discuss that while the products do work, other issues including cost and the subscription make them second guess whether to purchase their products again.

An Athletic Greens review Reddit had users asking, ‘Are Athletic Greens worth it?’ One user said, “I am very picky… It’s actually quite tolerable and I very much did notice a difference on it. A tablespoon would actually keep me satiated and bouncing off the walls from 4:45 am till about 2pm without any food.

With great reviews across the board and very little negative feedback, what I found makes the next section of my Athletics Greens review pretty easy. Read on.

Is Athletic Greens Powder Worth It?

Athletic Greens Powder Review

It’s easy to get caught up in a brand’s mumbo jumbo, so what I really wanted to know was: do Athletic Greens really work? From what I learned in customer feedback, the answer is a resounding yes. Though, you should keep in mind that results can vary.

Not everyone reported results while taking this supplement, and since I’m here writing this Athletic Greens powder review and not hypothesizing unique cases of health, I can’t say whether these claims are part of a larger picture of each person’s health or if the products simply just don’t work for them. Either way, the majority of customers—literally thousands of people—report success with this product.

Something else I should address: the price. Each serving costs approximately $3 when you break it down, which is what you’d pay for a coffee. Essential nutrients or coffee? It’s up to you to decide what’s more important.

When it comes down to it, Athletic Greens provide vital nutrients our bodies need to stay healthy. The brand is wholesome with a focus on sustainability and helping those in need. And of course, their products are made with whole food, clean ingredients.

My final verdict in this Athletic Greens powder review? I believe their products are worth the buy. If you are unsatisfied with the supplement though, the brand offers a 60-day money-back guarantee.

Athletic Greens Powder Promotions & Discounts 

Athletic Greens Powder Review

I like to shop, so I’m always looking to save money where I can. I checked out the brand’s site to see what I could find for you too.

When you give a friend 5 free Travel Packs and they use your referral link to buy more, you’ll get a $15 Athletic Greens discount code for your next order. Also, can we talk about saving $20 per pouch when you subscribe? Here’s what else subscribing will get you:

About Perfect Keto 

Perfect Keto Supplements Review

Perfect Keto is a nutrition supplement and snack brand that offers products to increase energy and kickstart ketosis for keto dieters.

Keto diets are known for their ability to help people lose weight fast. However, there is concern about its safety in the long term. The diet involves reducing carbohydrates to 10% and increasing proteins to 20% or more of the total caloric intake.

A recent review[1] highlights that the diet may lead to nutritional deficiencies and high consumption of saturated fats. In the long term, triglycerides and cholesterol levels may increase, resulting in a higher cardiovascular risk.

When planning to start a ketogenic diet, it is important to limit the intake of saturated fats and learn how to include fibers, vitamins, and minerals.

Perfect Keto nutrition features scientifically-backed whole-food ingredients containing no added sugar or artificial ingredients. Their keto snacks are supposedly easy to digest and promote health, mental clarity, and fat loss. We’ll explore the truth of that in this article.

The company has been featured in Reader’s Digest, Healthline, New York Magazine, Women’s Health, and Popsugar. They also have an impressive 300K followers on Instagram, so we wanted to know if these supplements are the real deal.

This Perfect Keto supplements review will examine the brand and its bestsellers, customer reviews, discounts, ordering process, and more to help you decide if these nutrition products are worth buying. 

Overview of Perfect Keto 

Perfect Keto Supplements Review

The Perfect Keto company is a product of Dr. Anthony Gustin’s long journey with the diet.  While initially designing the products for friends and family, Dr. Gustin officially launched Perfect Keto in 2018 to share his whole-food, science-backed approach to keto-nutrition with the public. 

Perfect Keto’s mission is “to make the world a better place by helping people own optimal health, using the ketogenic diet as an entry point.” Dr. Gustin believes that the ketogenic diet is the most “powerful diet for losing weight, improving your health, and preventing numerous diseases.”

Over the last 10 years, the keto diet has become a well-known concept, yet many people don’t completely understand how to reach ketosis the right way

Perfect Keto operates out of Austin, Texas. The team prioritizes core values to seek clarity, maintain high standards, improve by learning, and implement Dr. Gustin’s scientifically-proven approach into their own lives.

Perfect Keto Supplements Review

Before we get into the meat of this Perfect Keto review, we’ll highlight some of the brand’s best features.

Highlights

  • Variety of keto-friendly products, including collagen, MCT oil, keto bars, cookies, nut butter, supplements, and more
  • Whole-food ingredients backed by science
  • Products contain no artificial ingredients, gluten, corn, or soy

Perfect Keto Nutrition Review

Perfect Keto Supplements Review

Keto diets are all the rage these days, but what are they? You may already be well-versed, and if so, skip to the next section. If not, we’ll sum up the keto diet in a flash.

Ketogenic nutrition is low-carb, with the goal of getting more calories from protein and healthy fats compared to carbohydrates. This often translates into seafood, meat and poultry, green veggies, certain cheeses (bless), and eggs.

Keto diets may offer diverse health benefits, including weight loss, reduced acne, improved polycystic ovary symptoms PCOS, and management of Crohn’s disease. A review article[2] published in the American Journal of Clinical Dermatology describes that two clinical trials found an association between low-carb diets and an improvement in acne lesions. 

Regarding PCOS, a literary review[3] published in Annals of Nutrition and Metabolism found limited evidence to conclude that the keto diet may improve the condition. However, evidence showed a positive correlation between obesity, insulin resistance, and PCOS. Therefore, losing weight has a positive effect on PCOS.

We must note in this Perfect Keto supplements review that long-term Keto dieting can have an adverse effect on health. According to Medical News Today, the benefits of Keto dieting walk hand in hand with complications over extended periods, such as kidney stones, excess protein in the blood, and vitamin deficiencies. Moreover, a review by Blair O’Neil[4] and colleagues from the University of Alberta found that although the diet causes fast and substantial weight loss, it also raises cholesterol.

Balanced hypocaloric diets with a focus on learning healthy eating habits are likely a safer option.

Long story short: Keto should be approached in moderation if you want to incorporate it as a part of daily life long-term.

Keto supplements pack the beneficial nutrients associated with the diet into powders, protein bars, nut butters for protein-packed baked goods, and the like. Check out the products Perfect Keto has to offer in this department:

Perfect Keto Exogenous Ketone Base Review

If you’re attempting to kickstart ketosis, the Exogenous Ketone Base will assist in its high-fat burning nature. When first entering ketosis, your body will likely feel sluggish and achy. That’s just a normal part of your system adjusting to the diet.

Adhering to keto diets can be difficult because of potential side effects (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, etc.). Supplements with exogenous ketones may induce ketosis while reducing those symptoms. A recent clinical study[5] tested 22 healthy volunteers who received the supplement for 90 days. Although the study did not test the efficacy of exogenous, the authors concluded that the supplement was safe and well-tolerated. 

It’s possible to regain energy by incorporating this supplement into your daily routine. It temporarily increases blood-ketones levels to assist in ketosis.

You can choose from six different delicious flavors like Peach or Salted Caramel for a sweet and clean snack.

Sweetened with monk fruit, the Exogenous Ketone Base isn’t bitter and claims to be the best-tasting BHB exogenous ketones on the market. It can be mixed with water or baked into desserts like puddings and tarts. Get this keto-diet staple for $40 or $34 when you subscribe. 

Perfect Keto Exogenous Ketone Capsules Review

Exogenous Ketone Capsules make it easy to get those nutrients in. These capsules have the same benefits as the Exogenous Ketone Base in a more convenient pill form. Using Perfect Keto products is entirely your choice, but these capsules can be used throughout the day to help promote and support ketosis

The electrolytes in the formula claim to increase energy and boost mental clarity while having zero aftertaste. You can purchase these convenient, travel-friendly capsules in quantities of 60 for $20 or $17 when you subscribe.

If your partner is lovingly joining the keto diet in solidarity, opt for 120 Exogenous Ketone Capsules for $38 or pay $32 through the subscription.

Perfect Keto Keto Collagen Protein Review

Collagen works wonders for your hair, skin, nails, and joints. There is also emerging evidence of the benefits of collagen supplementation on the skin and joints.

In a clinical trial[6] conducted in Germany, 72 healthy women over 35 were randomly assigned either collagen or a placebo for 12 weeks. Compared with the placebo group, those participants who received collagen showed a significant improvement in skin hydration, elasticity, roughness, and density.

Regarding the effects of collagen in cartilage, a systematic review[7] by researchers at the University of Illinois found collagen hydrolysate to be safe and to potentially improve pain and function in patients with arthritis and other joint disorders. 

The Keto Collagen Protein is made with grass-fed collagen and comes in six crave-able flavors like Cinnamon Toast and Peanut Butter.

Since collagen is the main protein supporting ligaments, you’ll experience increased performance and overall comfort. The supplement is dairy-free, containing MCTs for added energy and mental clarity.

Fill up on this satiating 12oz Keto Collagen Protein for $37 or $32 if you sign up for a subscription.

Perfect Keto Keto Whey Protein Review

This whey-based product features grass-fed protein with added MCTs. Use this crowd-pleasing Keto Whey Protein powder in luscious chocolate or vanilla flavors to increase muscle mass or as a nutritious on-the-go Perfect Keto breakfast. 

Although this protein isn’t lactose-free, it contains whey-isolate, which reduces the amount of lactose. This powder is sweetened with stevia, so you’ll taste a hint of sweetness without the added sugar and calories.

Perfect Keto subscribers can snag this go-to product for $33, and it’s available for a one-time purchase at $39.  

Perfect Keto MCT Oil Powder Review 

It’s important to continue feeding your brain while on the keto diet. A recently published meta-analysis[8] reviewed the effects of medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) in patients with Alzheimer’s, whose brains may produce energy from ketones.

The MCT induced mild ketosis and did improve cognitive functions in these patients.

The MCT Oil Powder, available in six crowd-pleasing flavors, can be added to unsweetened almond milk to start your day with a healthy Matcha latte.

If you prefer a cold beverage, add some of the MTC powder to your favorite Perfect Keto smoothie recipe. The MCTs in this product are derived from coconuts and strongly promote ketosis. 

You’ll experience the benefits of this keto powder instantly in the form of increased energy, mental focus, and hunger satiety. For a one-time purchase, the MCT Oil Powder retails for $37, or subscribe for $32 so you never run out for a one-time purchase.

Perfect Keto Nut Butter Review

The Nut Butter from Perfect Keto will send your tastebuds to heaven with flavors of Macadamia Vanilla, Chocolate Hazelnut, and Snickerdoodle. With one scoop, the butter is designed to make your cravings disappear.

These 10oz jars contain high-quality ingredients like MCTs, cashews, and macadamia nuts to promote long-lasting energy.

The options are endless when it comes to eating this nut butter. Spread on Keto bars, dip bananas in it, or eat straight from the jar with a spoon.

Whatever your preference is, you can feel good knowing that each serving contains just 3g of net carbs. Keep your conscience and body clean with the Nut Butter for $20.

Perfect Keto Keto Bars Review

The protein bar market has blown up over the last 15 years, with grocery stores dedicating entire aisles to house various options. It can be overwhelming to decide which bar is right for you. These bars appear healthy by default. They are designed for highly active people, yet marketed toward the average person. 

The Keto Bars make finding a low-carb, healthy snack easy, even if you don’t work out every day. They feature clean, natural ingredients and are ideal for a grab-and-go breakfast.

These protein-packed bars can kick carb cravings, add energy before or after a workout, and satisfy your sweet tooth as a guilt-free dessert.

A box of 12 keto-friendly bars retails for $40 or $35 through the subscription.

Perfect Keto Keto Cookies Review

When following the keto diet, it can be difficult to kick cravings for treats you used to eat regularly. Keto Cookies are a guilt-free indulgence, containing flavors like Double Chocolate and Chocolate Chip, baked so that you don’t lose track of your ketosis goals.

This Perfect Keto supplements review envisions dancing around the kitchen after snacking while experiencing health-boosting benefits from ingredients like grass-fed collagen.

For a one-time purchase, you’ll receive a box of 24 cookies containing 4g of net carbs per serving (2 cookies). Treat yourself with these Keto Cookies for $35 and if crave them regularly, subscribe and pay $30

Perfect Keto Electrolytes Review

After dedicating his lifestyle to the keto diet, Dr. Gustin realized how crucial and beneficial electrolytes are to ketosis. Many people tend to limit their sodium intake while on the keto diet. Proper daily hydration is vital, but it’s also important for ketosis. Some adverse side effects (“keto flu”) can include muscle cramps and headaches. 

These Electrolytes from Perfect Keto contain a blend of magnesium, sodium, chloride, and potassium and 125% DV of vitamin D.  A retrospective study[9] evaluated the effects of a long-term ketogenic diet on bone mineral density (BMD) of children with epilepsy.

Children treated with a ketogenic diet showed low BMD. In addition, a recent review[10] published in Nutrition recommends controlling vitamin D levels of obese patients under a very low ketogenic diet and providing supplementation if a deficiency is detected.

As described in a review article[11] by Dr. Zupec-Kania and colleagues, children with epilepsy treated with long-term ketogenic diets often show nutritional deficiencies.

Minerals supplementation is recommended based on individual needs. This dietary supplementcomes in tastebud-approved flavors like Pink Lemonade and Black Cherry for $33 or $28 by subscription.

Perfect Keto Keto Nootropic Review

Keto Nootropic not only supports ketosis but claims to improves brain function. You can have those neurons firing at full speed. This supplement powder contains nine science-backed ingredients to support mental processes, including short and long-term brain health

Keto Nootropic is packed with BHB to promote ketosis, Omega 3s from algae, and MCTs to improve mental clarity and focus. A 9.6oz container of this brain-booster retails for $40. Natural study/work aid? Yes please.

Perfect Keto Subscription Review

Perfect Keto Supplements Review

Keto is more than a diet; it’s a lifestyle. If you’re going all-in with it, it’s essential to focus on eating right. Perfect Keto offers a subscription plan to make the process easier.

Customers must simply choose their products and the delivery frequency. The shipment options include every 30, 45, or 60 days and involve saving 15% off orders.

Perfect Keto Supplements Reviews: What Do Customers Think?

Perfect Keto Supplements Review

Perfect Keto customers who purchased the Exogenous Ketones Powder on Amazon rate the product as 3.9/5 stars from 7,305 reviews. A 5/5 star review states that the powder does indeed promote ketosis:

Drinking a full glass on my first day helped get me back in ketosis after I dropped out. Maintaining 1-2 glasses per day seems to help me stay in ketosis. I’ve experienced a moderate bump in energy…Test strips read moderate to strong ketosis hours after drinking a glass.”

Perfect Keto Supplements Review

Customers on the Perfect Keto website rate the company as 4.5/5 stars out of 17,703 reviews. The Keto Bars are said to have a “great taste and texture,” while the Keto Collagen is described as “super clean and delicious.” Others praise shipping and delivery times.

Perfect Keto Supplements Review 2
Paige, Product Tester

I try to eat healthy as much as I can, and having the right snacks on hand makes resisting temptation a lot easier.

Perfect Keto snacks are clean and delicious and make me feel like I’m indulging in treats like cookie dough and chocolate cereal.

Perfect Keto Review

Honestly, I was surprised at how addicting they were despite containing so little sugar.

I’m not following a keto diet, but I like the ingredients and could see myself grabbing a box regardless.

Are Perfect Keto Supplements Worth It?

Perfect Keto Supplements Review

The supplements have very high ratings and are loved by athletes and first-time keto dieters alike. According to thousands of positive reviews, we’d say they’re worth the price.

Now that we know the supplements work for most people, are there side effects? Aside from disliking the taste, the most concerning side effect among unhappy customers is tummy troubles. It’s important to note that this is standard for keto products initially, and you’re likely to experience adverse symptoms regardless of the brand.

If you’re looking for extra support while engaging in the keto diet, these products can help improve overall health and lose weight at the same time. These supplements are a great way to boost your nutrition goals in the longterm without experiencing the adverse side effects from over Keto-ing, so to speak.

About Vega

Vega Protein Review

Vega is a plant-based nutrition brand. Its clean, protein-packed powders and snacks boast high vitamin and mineral profiles to help you meet your goals in the gym and the kitchen.

Now, why should you care that it is plant-based? How will a plant-based shake help you reach your health goals? 

A review article[1] by J.P. Rocha and colleagues states that vegetarian plant-based diets can reduce mortality related to coronary heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and chronic kidney disease. If you are an athlete, listen up.

A 2019 review[2] cites evidence that a plant-based diet may offer a number of benefits for active individuals, including lower cholesterol levels, improved blood pressure, improved blood flow, lower risk and even reversal of atherosclerosis, and reduced inflammation.

Vega is classified as “vegan” certified, which means it is safe if you are vegetarian, vegan, or a meat-eater simply trying to up your vegetable quota. So, what’s the difference?

All vegans are vegetarians, but not all vegetarians are vegan. The plant-based lifestyle exists on a continuum from those who eat no animal products or animal byproducts (vegans) to lacto-ovo vegetarians (no animal flesh, but hybrid products like dairy and eggs), to pesco-lacto-ovo vegetarians (hybrid products and fish). Meaning there are different classes of vegetarians. All abstain from red meat, but some will eat fish, dairy, and/or eggs. Vegans, on the other hand, are stricter. They prohibit eggs, dairy, and often anything that derives from animals, such as honey or leather. 

We established that there are many positives to eating a plant-based diet. Now for some potential negatives. Plant-based devotees are at risk of developing nutritional deficiencies, including vitamin B12, calcium, iron, and zinc. The good news is that you can counteract these potential deficiencies by consuming fortified products (such as cereals), food combining (combining foods rich in Vitamin C with foods rich in plant-based iron to improve iron absorption), and supplementation.

One thing to keep in mind is that athletes’ protein requirements[3] are higher than those recommended for sedentary populations. As mentioned above, when the requirements of proteins, vitamins, and minerals are not met with the diet, supplements are an excellent choice to fulfill those nutritional needs. Enter the possible demand for vega products. 

Trainer’s Tip: You don’t have to be fully vegan or vegetarian to benefit from vegetarian foods and products. If you are thinking of dipping your toes into the veggie world, start by being veggie-ish. Make 2 meals a day vegetarian, or only eat meat once a week. Also, note that since vegetarianism exists on a continuum, the further along the continuum you move towards being vegan, the fewer foods your diet allows, and the more critical the issue of food combining and possible supplementation becomes. 

If you decide to become vegan, great, but know that you can’t just “cut out” multiple food groups (dairy, meat, etc.) without adding additional types and combinations of foods to your diet. For example, you might need to combine rice and beans to get the required combination of lysine and tryptophan.

With over 500k followers on Facebook and a ton of features in high-profile publications like Healthline and Good Housekeeping, the brand has proved itself. And, it has done so not only in the vegan world but with anyone looking for a delicious, nutritious protein option.

Are you looking to clean things up in your diet or put on some plant-powered muscle? This brand may be able to help you with that. Take a peek at this Vega Protein review to see if it aligns with your needs.

We’ll go over important information about the brand and its products, fill you in on what customers have to say about them, and more, to help in your final decision.

Overview of Vega

Vega Protein Review

The story of Vega is simple and it starts with the classic problem-solving scenario. The problem? No tasty vegan protein powder options on the market. Solution? Well, we think you know.

It was in British Columbia in 2004 that Charles Chang and Brendan Brazier set out to create the plant-based powder to help with athletes’ recovery. Brazier, a triathlete himself, needed something that would speed up his recovery time and help him get back on the road.

Turning to nutrition to do just that, he developed a powder that brought together protein, vitamins, and micronutrients to make Vega One.

Over the years, the brand developed more and more products to suit different needs—everything from better digestion to more energy to sports recovery—but has also switched ownerships, from WhiteWave to Danone, to now WM Partners, a private equity firm.

Throughout it all, the plant protein products have made their way into over 20,000 stores across the US and Canada.

Before we get into some of the exciting selections the brand offers, this Vega Protein review will give you a rundown of its highlights.

Highlights

  • Eight different Vega plant-based protein powders to choose from
  • Incorporates protein, micronutrients, and more in each powder
  • Tons of delicious flavors like Salted Caramel or Vanilla Chai
  • Accessible—available in over 20k stores
  • Customers say the product is tasty and mixes well
  • Multiple ways to save
  • Option to return even if it’s been opened

Trainer’s Tip: As always, talk with your doctor or a registered nutritional health professional before adding any new supplement to your diet. Having this discussion will ensure that the new supplement will not interfere with any drug you are taking and/or with any other supplement you are taking.

Vega Protein Review

There is often a pervasive assumption by non-vegans that those who don’t eat meat or dairy don’t get enough protein in their diets. This is simply uninformed thinking and/or outdated information. Yes, meat is a concentrated source of protein, and dairy ranks pretty high on the list of foods that contain protein, but plant-based sources[4] like peas, beans, and even some greens fare exceptionally well on the protein scale.

The main protein source within Vega meal replacements and powders is peas, but to round things off in terms of nutrition, the brand also uses hemp and Sacha inchi seed protein. The brand’s selection of muscle-fueling products includes powders to suit a ton of different needs, whether that’s overall health, sports, or an extra dose of greens.

Peas are rich in proteins, fibers, minerals, and vitamins. A review article[5] published in Applied Physiology, Nutrition, and Metabolism states that peas contain phytochemicals with proven antioxidant and antitumor activity.

Not sure what a phytochemical is? Phytochemicals are compounds that are produced by plants. The most beneficial phytochemicals include beta carotene, resveratrol, polyphenols, and isothiocyanates found in cruciferous vegetables. Phytochemicals are believed to protect cells from damage that could lead to cancer.

Peas may also help improve your cholesterol profile and reduce blood pressure. Moreover, their low glycemic index makes them an excellent choice for diabetics or prediabetics.

Hemp seeds are the tiny brown seeds of the cannabis Sativa plant. However, they have no psychoactive effects as they only contain traces of THC. They are rich in protein, fiber, and healthful fatty acids, including omega-3s and omega-6s. Hemp seeds are a great source of proteins containing all 9 essential amino acids. According to a review article[6] by P. Shen and colleagues, hemp seeds appear to have antioxidant properties and may help reduce blood pressure and glycemia. 

Not sure what an essential amino acid is? Amino acids are molecules that combine to form proteins. They are critical for tissue repair and growth. The 9 essential amino acids are those that your body can’t produce. They have to be consumed, hence the term “essential.” The 9 essential amino acids are: histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, and valine. Other foods high in amino acids are quinoa, eggs, cottage cheese, fish, and beans.

In the last few decades, Sacha inchi have become an increasing interest as a valuable source of proteins and unsaturated fatty acids. A study[7] recently published in Foods highlights the antioxidant properties of the phenolic components of sacha inchi seeds. Phenolic compounds[8] aid the body in “defense responses” such as anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anti-proliferative activities. 

Further, antioxidants are molecules that fight free radicals in your body. Fighting free radicals is critical since these compounds are linked to multiple illnesses, including diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. The main takeaway is that you want to consume antioxidant-rich foods such as Sacha inchi.

According to Vega, the company offers quite a few different dessert-inspired flavors that do a good job at masking earthy tastes and melding well with the creamy nature of the protein itself.

In the next section of this Vega Protein review, we’ll introduce you to a selection of the brand’s protein powders, snacks, and electrolyte enhancers to level up your active life.

Vega Protein Review

We all need protein to survive. Protein is one of the three macronutrients, the others being fat and carbs. It’s an essential building block required by our muscles and brains. That said, we can not survive on protein alone. Vega rounds out their supplements with other key nutritious elements such as greens (for macronutrients such as calcium, iron, and magnesium) and probiotics to promote healthy digestion.

Below, you’ll read about the brand’s bestsellers, ranging from delicious shakes and sips to tasty snacks.

Vega One Organic All-In-One Shake Review

According to Vega, getting a full spectrum of vitamins each day from diet alone isn’t easy or cheap. Though eating the rainbow sounds like a good idea, and we should always try and shoot for that, Vega believed that complete nutrition shakes are the next best thing.

The Vega One Organic All In One Shake contains a full spectrum of vitamins, minerals, greens, protein, adaptogens, and even probiotics to help you reach your nutrition goals.

With 20 grams of protein per serving, 1 billion cfus probiotics, and 7 grams of digestive-healthy fiber, this delicious shake makes an ideal breakfast, lunch, or mid-afternoon snack.

What are probiotics, and why are they beneficial? Think of probiotics as “health-friendly bacteria[9] that live in your gut and support your physiology and psychology. According to The Harvard Health Review, the potential benefits of probiotics have been seen in treating or preventing multiple disorders/diseases, including diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, ulcerative colitis, constipation, Crohn’s disease, and the recurrence of bladder cancer. Other benefits include supporting the immune system and improving the host’s ability to deal with anxiety and depression. Some evidence even suggests probiotics might help the health of your skin[10]!

Trainer’s Tip: want to increase the number of probiotics rich foods in your diet? Try fermented foods (think Kombucha and sauerkraut), cultured milk (yogurt and Kefir), and/or tempeh.

Improved athletic performance is another reason to prioritize the consumption of probiotics. Probiotics[11] can improve “athletic performance by enhancing training adaptations, attenuating physiological responses during post-exercise recovery periods, and improving mood and mental responses after intense exercise.” 

Moreover, a clinical study[12] published in The European Journal of Applied Physiology evaluated the impact of probiotic supplementation on the performance of runners exercising in hot weather. Ten male participants were randomized (in a cross-over fashion) to receive a daily supplement containing probiotics or a placebo for 4 weeks. The authors reported that probiotics improved the performance of runners by prolonging the time to fatigue while exercising in the heat.

Vega’s powder is available in 7 flavors, like Berry and Vanilla Chai. According to Vega, the options as to what you can do with this powder are endless—protein cookies, anyone?!

Trainer’s Tip: We are big fans of making homemade protein popsicles. Why? Because we love Fudgsicles, but they are sadly not exactly made of broccoli. Instead of having a shake post-workout, you can have a  yummy and ice cream-esque hit of protein! Simply blend together your ingredients, pour into popsicle molds, let freeze, and eat. Easy and delicious! We recommend mixing ice with protein powder, almond milk, and maybe half a frozen banana, but feel free to throw in anything you want. Try cocoa nibs, almond butter, flax, or frozen berries. Experiment and see what works for you!

With 19 servings per 876g tub, the Organic All-In-One Shake is $45 (normally $60).

Vega Sport Premium Plant-Based Protein Powder Review

According to vega, you need a little more protein than the regular Joe when you’re highly active. The Sport Premium Plant-Based Protein Powder kicks things into overdrive with its 30 grams of protein from plant-based sources like pea, alfalfa, and pumpkin seed.

Also thrown into the mix is tart cherry[13], a fruit that helps speed up recovery, and 2 billion CFU probiotics[14] to improve digestion.

One tub holds 19 x 190 calorie servings without a single trace of added sugar. Instead, this formulation used stevia leaf to sweeten things up.

Made in tasty flavors including Chocolate, Berry, Mocha, and Vanilla, enjoy this shake after a workout to fuel muscles and support recovery.

Get an 876g container of this Vega sport protein powder for $34 (was $50).

Vega Protein & Energy Plant-Based Protein Powder Review

When you say the word “keto,” it is often not vegan-friendly foods that come to mind. Visions of bacon grease, “fat bombs,” and all-meat meals typically pop into our brains, but the thing about keto is, there’s no rule that says your fat content has to be meat and dairy-based. You can get fat from vegetarian-based sources – think avocados, hemp, flax, and coconut. Enter MCT oil, the fat that Vega uses in their powder to make their product both Keto and vegetarian friendly. (Note, not all of the Vega products are keto-friendly. Check all the labels – do your due diligence – before you buy.) 

The Protein & Energy Plant-Based Protein Powder contains no added sugar, offers 20 grams of plant-powered protein, and has 3mg of MCT Oil to help you reach your goals.

What is MCT oil, and why should we consume it? MCT oil is a human-made, highly concentrated source of medium-chain triglycerides extracted and isolated from coconut or palm kernel oil. MCTs may aid weight loss and performance. MCTs aid the feeling of fullness/satiety[15], increase energy expenditure and may help to facilitate weight control.[16] 

Trainer’s Tip: One of the touted benefits of MCTs is that they are less energy-dense than LCTs. Note that you will only experience that caloric benefit if you currently consume LCTs. Adding MCTs to a diet that doesn’t have MCTs and LCTs will not produce a caloric deficit. Also, many common cooking oils include LCTs and MCTs, so the caloric difference is not as useful.

Speaking of goals, they’re made much easier with a little energy, which is why you’ll find 100mg of caffeine from organic coffee fruit in each serving of this Vega protein and energy formulation, along with maca.

In a 513g tub, this goal-attaining Vega protein powder is $30.

Vega Protein & Greens Plant-Based Protein Powder Review

According to Vega, greens are one of the hardest things to get into our diets, simply because most of them are a little hard to eat. The ones with the highest mineral and vitamin content (kale, Swiss chard, etc.) aren’t the easiest to swallow. Therefore, greens supplements are great for this very reason, packing a daily dose of cell-nourishing vitamins into one convenient, easy-to-eat pill or powder.

The Vega Protein & Greens Plant-Based Protein Powder blends these greens with tasty flavors like Chocolate, Salted Caramel, and Tropical—but don’t worry, you won’t be tasting any undercurrents of kale.

Each serving boasts 20 grams of protein from a mix of peas, rice, hemp, and Sacha inchi seed. You’ll get your daily recommended dose of greens from sources like broccoli, alfalfa, and spinach—just ground up into tiny, tasteless particles.

With 0 grams of sugar and just 110 calories per serving, make refreshing Tropical coconut ice cream, or try mixing the Salted Caramel version with milk and a few other bits and bobs to create Vega banana protein pancakes.

Get a 22 oz tub of this brain and body-boosting Vega protein and greens powder for $33.

Vega Protein Snack Bar Review

Though protein bars often look like a candy bar, according to Vega, they are nothing like Snickers. Vega believes that they are worth eating because they are packed with so much of what your body needs.

The Vega Protein Snack Bar comes in Crunchy Peanut Butter or Crispy Mint Chocolate flavors. Each box includes 12 x 70 gram bars that pack easily into your gym bag, purse, or jacket pocket for quick fueling during outdoor adventures.

The bars contain 20 grams of brown rice and pea protein. Plus, they have 3.5 grams of something called “Branched Chain Amino Acids,” designed to effectively fuel and repair muscles, along with 480 mg of Tart Cherry.

BCAAs (branched-chain amino acids)[17] are – as the name suggests – amino acids. Amino acids are molecules that combine to form proteins. They are critical for tissue repair and growth. The 9 essential amino acids – 3 of which are BCAAs – can’t be produced by the human body. The three BCAAs are leucine, isoleucine and valine. 

BCAA supplements are used to decrease muscle fatigue, alleviate muscle soreness and promote recovery from your workout. As reported in a study[18] published in The Journal of Nutrition, the intake of BCAA supplements before exercise reduces the breakdown of muscle proteins that occurs during physical activity. The authors conducted a study including 30 healthy, non-trained men and women. Participants were randomized to take BCAA or a placebo solution before performing an exercise routine (140 squats divided into 7 sets). Researchers found that BCAA supplementation delayed the onset of muscle soreness for several days after exercise. BCAA appears to help in muscle recovery.

Pick up a box for $20.

Vega Sport Electrolyte Hydrator Review

When playing hard, you sweat. With that sweat, you lose valuable sodium, magnesium, and calcium. Sodium, magnesium, and calcium are known as electrolytes. 

Keeping your electrolytes within an appropriate[19] level is vitally crucial since electrolytes help regulate heart and neurological function, fluid balance, etc. You may experience sluggishness, brain fog, and even cramping without them. Water alone is often not enough or even ideal. In fact, too much water without the correct balance of electrolytes can lead to hyponatremia, a dangerous condition that occurs when the sodium concentration in your blood is abnormally low. That’s where the Electrolyte Hydrator comes in. It’s full of both electrolytes and antioxidants.

Electrolyte Hydrator comes in Lemon Lime and Berry flavors and is designed to be mixed with water (this isn’t like Vega’s other shakes, milk may not translate well!)

Sold by the 40-serving tub or 30 packet box, the Electrolyte Hydrator is $24, (normally $30).

What Kind Of Protein Is In Vega?

Vega Protein Review

Vega states that their protein is a mix of plant-based sources. Some formulas use a blend of pea, hemp, and sacha inchi, while others have brown rice, alfalfa, and pumpkin seed.

The brand always uses a mix of sources to give you a wide spectrum of vitamins and minerals along with solid protein.

Who Is Vega For?

Vega Protein Review

Vega is a completely vegan brand, but its protein powders and snacks are loved by those just looking for a clean fuel source. Lactose intolerance is very common, and nowadays, more and more people are finding they react to dairy.

According to Vega, their product is a clean and animal-friendly way to get your protein in. Its powder is low in sugar, instead sweetened with stevia, meaning they’re suitable for those on low-carb diets.

Comparison: Vega vs. Shakeology

Vega Protein Review

Protein shakes aren’t just about protein anymore. As diets change and the hours in the day seem to grow shorter, the things we eat need to do have more than one purpose—and they need to get the job done quickly.

The realm of bars and shakes isn’t new; it’s just growing. Supplements are a billion-dollar industry. The Global Dietary Supplement Market was estimated at USD 167.8 billion in 2019 and is expected to reach USD 306.8 billion by 2026. Several brands on the market offer all-in-one shakes, precisely because of the high demand for fast, affordable, and nutritious food.

In this section of our Vega Protein review, we’ll be looking at Shakeology’s complete shake and how it compares to our featured brand’s product. For the sake of a fair comparison, we’ll be using our featured brand’s Organic All-In-One Protein Powder as it’s the closest thing it has to the competitor.

Let’s take a look at what’s exactly in each of the formulas one by one, then we’ll zoom in on the nutrition facts, starting with Shakeology.

Our competitor offers whey-based and plant-based formulas, but this Vega Protein review will be examining its vegan version. Made from a mix of pea, flax, quinoa, and rice, the powder also has a superfood and antioxidant blend, super-green and phytonutrients blend, adaptogens, probiotics, and digestive enzymes.

Vega actually has the same lineup, except its protein comes from pea, hemp, and Sacha inchi[20] seed (known for its high mineral content). So far, the two products are pretty much equal, so let’s look at the nutrition data.

  • Vega Organic All-In-One Protein Powder – Chocolate – $45 (normally $60)
    • 19 servings
    • 170 calories
    • 20 grams protein
    • 5 grams fat
      • 1 saturated
      • 3 polyunsaturated 
      • 1 monounsaturated 
    • 7 grams fiber
    • 1 gram sugar
      • 0 grams added sugar
  • Shakeology Plant-Based Protein Powder – Chocolate – $125
    • 30 servings
    • 160 calories
    • 16 grams protein
    • 3 grams fat
      • 1 saturated
      • 1 polyunsaturated
      • 1 monounsaturated 
    • 6 grams fiber
    • 7 grams of sugar
      • 5 grams added sugar

There are quite a few big differences between these two products, and not just in price difference, but, let’s break down the pricing to see how different they really are:

  • Vega $60 tub = $3.15/serving
  • Shakeology $125 bag = $4.15/serving

When you look at it this way, the price difference isn’t too bad, but Vega’s sale takes it down to just over $2/serving.

Vega Protein Reviews: What Do Customers Think?

Vega Protein Review

From the last section of this Vega Protein review, we can see that the brand’s protein powder is a really good value. To find out whether or not it’s worth the buy, we’re going to need to hear from customers about taste and quality as well.

In this section, you’ll read about those very things from a few different customers who’ve tried it. Let’s get started.

Checking out the brand’s website first, we put together a shortlist of a few of its bestsellers:

  • Organic All-In-One Shake: average of 4.1/5 stars from 3,769 ratings
  • Protein & Greens Plant-Based Protein Powder: average of 4.1/5 stars from 3,769 ratings
  • Snack Bars: average of 4.7/5 stars from 130 ratings

The All-In-One Vega Nutrition Shake seems to be the most popular option, so let’s take a look at what customers had to say about it.

5-star reviews consist of comments applauding the taste and texture of this shake. One Vega Protein review reads, “I’ve been religiously using whey protein for years but recently made the switch to Vega’s Protein & Greens. Less bloating, more nutrients and still plenty of protein.”

It’s wonderful when a product that’s healthy for you actually works and tastes good.

The cons list is varied. Some buyers mention its high cost, other the taste of certain flavors. While the price might look daunting at first, it’s an all-in-one shake, so you’re getting a probiotic, greens, protein, and superfood blend all in one. So, it’s saving you money in the long run.

We swapped over to Amazon to see if those high scores found on the brand’s website held up. They do. The Vega Protein & Greens Plant Protein Shake has a 4.6/5 star rating from 4,351 buyers.

Here’s the rating breakdown if you’d like to see how that score was calculated:

  • 5 stars 78%
  • 4 stars 11%
  • 3 stars 6%
  • 2 stars 2%
  • 1 star 4%

Buyers who are lactose intolerant express gratitude for this product and many say they love the flavor and how it mixes with other foods and liquids. One Vega Protein review that mentions this reads, “Great flavor, mixes well into oatmeal and smoothies, and smells delicious.” The mixing ability of protein is critical, so it’s good to know this one works well.

Though there are very few negative reviews, the most common complaint is about the taste.

Since we felt like we had a solid grasp on the taste and texture of Vega’s shakes, we headed to the Better Business Bureau to see how well the brand does with customer complaints.

Finding an A+ rating and just 1 complaint made in the last 3 years, it looks as if this company does a great job at resolving issues as well as preventing them from being taken to the BBB in the first place.

We feel confident that Vega is a quality brand with all of our research. Though some customers don’t love the taste, and while we know certain flavors taste better than others, all in all, it appears that the brand’s protein powder tastes good and mixes well with other liquids and foods.

Is Vega Worth It?

Vega Protein Review

Only you know what is “worth it” for you. Only you know your financial realities, health goals, diet history, and taste preferences. As mentioned earlier in this review, it is up to you to be an informed consumer. 

For a protein powder, Vega is a little pricey. But for its all-in-one, it’s a great value. Keep in mind that most of the brand’s powders have more than just protein. They also either have probiotics, MCT oil, greens, or a mix of all of the above.

There’s nothing that signals to us that its plant-based protein powder isn’t worth the buy, which is why this Vega Protein review wholeheartedly believes that it is. Not sure? Try individual packs. It sells its powder in single-serving packs at some grocery stores and online shops.

About Relief Factor

Relief Factor Review

Have you ever heard the Buddhist proverb “pain is inevitable, suffering is optional”? With Relief Factor supplements, we hope to prove this old adage wrong – who needs to live with suffering or pain?

Relief Factor is a health and wellness brand best known for its trio of products, which the company claims are suited for pain relief, energy, and relaxation. 

Unfortunately, there is a high prevalence of chronic pain among older adults. As described in one review article[1], chronic pain is a major contributor to overall suffering, disability, social isolation, and economic burden. Moreover, chronic pain is a risk factor for cognitive decline and premature death. Available painkillers are only partially effective and have substantial side effects when continuously used. It comes as no surprise that there is a high demand for alternative medicines to mitigate this “pain problem.”

After reading the above information, it will probably come as no surprise that Relief Factor is mainly targeted toward the elderly demographic. If you are curious, take a read, it has been reviewed by countless blogs, including Westword and Nebula.org

The main question is, “Are you tired of back pain and sleepless nights?” If so, perhaps this supplement brand can provide some relief. As always, talk with a medical professional before taking any supplements.

Trainer’s Tip: consider doing a “pain history inventory.” Look at what you have done for your pain – which practitioners you have spoken to, which treatments you have tried, etc. Take this (along with info on Relief Factor) to a qualified health practitioner and noodle on how the products might help your case. Be an informed consumer. 

Stay tuned, as this Relief Factor review will take a closer look at the company, its products, customer ratings, promotions, and more to help you decide if they’re worth checking out.

Overview of Relief Factor

Relief Factor Review

Not much is known about the story behind Relief Factor. Co-founded by Pete and Seth Talbott, this health and wellness brand is presumably headquartered in Kirkland City in Washington state. 

You may have seen their advertisements on TV, which feature a few encouraging testimonials about its products. Marketed as safe and effective to use, Relief Factor states that they use 4 primary ingredients within their 3-Week QuickStart medicine, which is formulated by a team of physicians located in the Pacific Northwest. 

As a final note, co-owners Pete and Seth Talbott state that it’s normal to feel skeptical when taking their products but promise it’s ultimately worth it in the end. A statement from the brand reads:

“Relief Factor has helped tens of thousands of people struggling with everyday aches and pains. Taken as designed, Relief Factor reduces or eliminates pain all day, every day.”

Trainer’s Tip: Whether or not Relief Factor is for you, never give up hope that there is a solution for your pain. The key to life is realistic expectations. Your pain will probably never be completely eliminated (“body awareness” of some sort does tend to be a “problem of the privilege of being alive”), but you can find something to lessen the duration, frequency, and intensity. You can make it liveable. First, accept your reality. Then find a way forward.

Before we get into this Relief Factor review, let’s go over some highlights:

Highlights

  • Offers a natural way to help reduce pain, exhaustion, and stress 
  • Reasonable prices 
  • Provides a subscription plan for customers to opt for 
  • Accepts HSA cards as payment 
  • Has a generous return window of 90 days 

Life is meant to be lived. In order to “live life to the fullest,” we want to be able to jump, run, stretch, bend, etc. Pain can stand between our dreams and our lived reality. This is where Relief Factor comes in. Designed to help you turn lemons into lemonade, Relief Factor offers a trio of naturally-made remedies that they claim are suited for pain relief, stress, and energy. Offered as a one-time purchase or as part of a subscription plan, customers can get their fill of supplements by simply clicking the checkout button. 

Looking to expand your bathroom cabinet? This Relief Factor review has got you covered, as we will highlight a few of their best-selling products for readers to compare. 

Relief Factor Review

Say goodbye to couch potato days. This health and wellness brand provides the treatments you need to help you get back on your feet. Offered in three different formulas, this Relief Factor review will comb over their products for customers to try out. 

Relief Factor QuickStart Review

Not surprisingly, people with chronic pain were significantly less active[2] compared to healthy individuals. No matter the severity, a simple ache can swell into an annoying nudge. The result? Say goodbye to productivity, not to mention exercise. Plus, the less you move and the more pain you are in, the greater the chance you will start to fear movement.

Trainer’s Tip: Here’s a saying we’ll never forget, “chronic pain is depression, and depression is chronic pain.” Over time depression and pain become so entwined that it becomes almost impossible to pull the two apart. Unfortunately, the less you move, the less fit you become, and a low fitness level is typically a disincentive to move. We get it. It is almost impossible to feel peppy when you are in constant discomfort, and it is tough to make yourself do the things that help relieve the symptoms of pain when feeling depressed. It is a vicious cycle. The good news is exercise has been proven to be a helpful intervention[3] for chronic pain. The key is to find ways to break the depression/pain cycle through physical, behavioral, social, and medical interventions[4].

Enter Relief Factor. Designed for those needing to stay on their toes, the QuickStart treatment is formulated with 4 Relief Factor ingredients to quell discomfort and soreness.

Icariin is an active component of the herb Epimedii (horny goat weed). A literature review[5] published in the European Journal of Pharmacology states that Icariin has anti-oxidative, anti-neuroinflammatory, and anti-apoptotic effects.

What does this mean in English? Icariin helps protect cells from free radical damage, helps prevent cell death, aids in decreasing inflammation in the brain, and has a potentially positive impact on disorders that impact the nervous system[6], including Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s, and multiple sclerosis. 

In addition, as highlighted in a review article[7] published in Osteoporosis International, this flavonoid has the potential to prevent postmenopausal osteoporosis. Lastly, animal studies show that Icariin may be a promising alternative pain killer[8]

Resveratrol (RV)[9] is a naturally occurring polyphenol. Polyphenols help protect the body’s tissues against oxidative stress and associated pathologies such as cancers, coronary heart disease, and inflammation. Resveratrol possesses anti-inflammatory, anti-tumorigenic, and antioxidant properties, which may be harnessed in strategies against chronic diseases.

Not yet sold? Resveratrol is also associated with slowing down or preventing cognitive deterioration and improving insulin sensitivity (a good thing, especially if you are concerned with warding off or managing type 2 diabetes). 

Still not sold? As reported in a literature review[10], resveratrol induced neurological recovery after central nervous system injuries in animal studies. Meaning that Resveratrol helped the brain recover!

Trainer’s Tip: Want to eat your resveratrol? No problem. Regularly consume grapes, peanuts, berries, and (in moderation) red wine.

Next up, turmeric. Turmeric (curcumin) seems to be all the rage these days. Coffee shops sell turmeric lattes, health food stores sell turmeric teas, and even Laird Hamilton (the famous surfer) has a Turmeric version of his superfoods creamer.

The infusion of turmeric into almost everything is not surprising, considering turmeric[11] has been shown to aid in the “management of oxidative and inflammatory conditions, metabolic syndrome, arthritis, anxiety, and hyperlipidemia. It may also help in the management of exercise-induced inflammation and muscle soreness, thus enhancing recovery and performance in active people.”

Check out this literature review[12]. It describes the anti-inflammatory properties of turmeric and its potential clinical applications in arthritis, inflammatory bowel diseases, osteoarthritis, psoriasis, dermatitis, and pain, including neuropathic pain. 

Trainer’s Tip: Want to add turmeric to your diet? Try adding it to smoothies, humous, salad dressing, stir-frys, and/or cauliflower rice.

Lastly, let’s discuss Omega-3 fatty acids. Similar to Icariin, Resveretriol, and Turmeric, Omega-3 fatty acids have proven anti-inflammatory properties, improving cardiovascular and neurological health, and omega-3 supplementation has the potential to significantly reduce pain[13] in patients with osteoarthritis in synovial joints. This study even showed a reduction in neuropathic pain[14]. Larger studies are obviously needed, but the current research is very promising.

According to Relief Factor, this formula was developed by a leading team of naturopathic physicians and medical professionals. Relief Factor claims that it can help reduce pain in the back, knee, neck, shoulder, and hip.

Currently, there are 3 ways to purchase the QuickStart treatment. To keep things easy to read, we’ll provide the details for each option in point-form down below:

  • QuickStart treatment (60 ct bag): one-time purchase for one month’s supply, $94 
  • QuickStart treatment subscription (60 ct bag): monthly deliveries with a free gift included (options range from Vitamin D3, Vitamin C, or the CoQ10 supplement), $80 per shipment
  • 3-week QuickStart treatment subscription: 
    • 49 supplement packs 
    • Free gift each month 
    • Anti-inflammation diet booklet 
    • Costs $20 per shipment

For the 3-week treatment, Relief Factor advises you to take 3 packets a day to help find the right dosage for you. From there, users can adjust from one to two supplements going forward.

And as always, we recommend consulting with a physician first before making any changes to your diet. 

Trainer’s Tip: Do you move your body regularly? We’re not talking about “high intensity, work it till you cry” activities like Crossfit or running. We mean gentle walking and mind/body activities such as yoga and Pilates. Movement has been shown to be a potential successful intervention[15] for chronic pain management. If you are suffering from chronic pain and not moving, try starting small. Make a goal of ten minutes of walking a day or 10 minutes of restorative yoga. Break the fear factor. Progress appropriately.

Relief Factor Calm Review

Nothing is more irritating than a sleepless night. Aside from tossing and turning, our gremlins tend to come out at night. Our 3 am self is either inundated with negative self-talk or a marathon of nonsensical thoughts. “Why do people say chai tea instead of chai? Why do we bake cookies and cook bacon?” No one needs the 3 am monkey mind.

According to Relief Factor, their Calm treatment quiets down those fumbling notions, as it’s intended to relax the mind, body, and soul. This nifty treatment is ideal for reducing stress and adrenaline and acts as a stand-in for melatonin tablets. 

This is thanks to its superhero duo of ingredients, which includes phosphatidylserine and passionflower extract. Together, these additives help moderate cortisol levels while strengthening the central nervous system. 

It makes sense that passion flower would be included in a product sold to promote calmness and aid sleep. It’s regularly used to fight anxiety, aid restorative sleep, support pain management, reduce menopausal symptoms, and manage attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder. 

A systematic review[16] published in Nutrients evaluated the effect of passionflower extract in neuropsychiatric patients. (Neuropsychiatric is a broad term that includes issues such as anxiety, depression, and ADHD). The results? Passionflower extract may help reduce symptoms in neuropsychiatric patients with no adverse events. How does it work? (In scientific terms, what is its “mechanism of action[17]”?) In short, “GABA,” aka the principal inhibitory neurotransmitter of the brain (in English, GABA[16] helps to counter neurotransmitters that cause excitement, which typically has a calming effect).

The last ingredient is Phosphatidylserine, which supports normal cognitive functions[18]. For example, it helps in the formation of short-term memories, aids the consolidation of long-term memory, and supports the ability to learn, retrieve information, and concentrate. 

The Calm supplements come with a free 60-day supply. As an added cherry on top, customers are also treated to complimentary shipping and handling. Helping you dream faster, this treatment costs $22, compared to its original price of $29. 

Relief Factor Energy Review

Ah, the third cup of coffee. For most, it’s a necessary dosage to kickstart the day. For some, it’s a guilt-inducing reminder to lay off the caffeine. If you’re looking to curb your Arabica binge, the Energy supplements are offered as a natural way to ‘generate buzz’. 

Introducing a blend of taurine, vitamin B-complex, and a bit of caffeine, Relief Factor claims that this treatment does the most in absorbing key nutrients while enhancing physical performance. Other ingredients include folate, biotin, and choline, which are vital in regulating your circulatory system. 

Let’s go through the ingredients list. Taurine is a common ingredient in energy drinks. As described in this literary review[19], taurine is an amino acid with antioxidant properties (Antioxidants are molecules that fight free radicals in your body, which are linked to multiple illnesses, including diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.) Taurine also helps keep calcium levels stable. Taurine could potentially be beneficial for preventing and treating cardiovascular disease and is also used in energy drinks to neutralize the effects of caffeine[20] excess. 

A review article[21] published in Practical Neurology highlights that caffeine increases alertness, helps concentration, improves mood, and limits depression. Moreover, it has proven pain-relieving properties, especially for treating headaches and migraine.

As of lately, the Energy supplements are offered in three different pricing options. This includes:

  • 1 Relief Factor supplement bottle: $35 (one-time purchase)
  • 3 bottles: $30 (one-time purchase)
  • 6 bottles: $25 (one-time purchase)

Who Is Relief Factor For? 

Relief Factor Review

A simple gloss through their social media tells you that this pharmaceutical brand is marketed for the middle-aged to elderly demographic. 

Although there are no age restrictions written on their supplements, it does make sense that the company markets to and showcases older customers. As we grow older, we’re more at risk for joint pain, loss of energy, and increased stress.

Since Relief Factor is primarily sold online, customers don’t need to worry about visiting their local pharmacy. Instead of purchasing supplements individually, buyers can opt for their subscription plan, which provides a monthly delivery of capsules before you start to run out. 

Comparison: Relief Factor vs. Balance of Nature

Relief Factor Review

Inflammation response medication is definitely not new. In fact, if you’re a regular visitor of Honest Brand Reviews, you’ve probably familiar with a few supplement brands already. 

With that in mind, how does Relief Factor size up to its competition? To help readers answer that question, we’ve decided to look at another company: Balance of Nature. 

Down below, this Relief Factor review has compiled a shortlist of similarities and differences between these two brands. So what company deserves to fill your pill organizer? Let’s find out. 

Relief Factor:

  • Offers supplements for pain relief, exhaustion, and stress 
  • Provides a subscription plan for most of their products 
  • Reasonably priced 
  • Does not offer international shipping 
  • Limited customer reviews 

Balance of Nature:

  • Offers nutritional supplements made out of fruit and vegetables
  • Also provides a subscription plan for customers to opt for 
  • Pricier compared to Relief Factor 
  • Has a health coaching service on their website 
  • More customer reviews 

After reflection, it is almost impossible to crown a winner; it would be like comparing apples to peanut butter. These two brands are entirely different, as Relief Factor is designed to provide pain relief while Balance of Nature provides nutritional boosts. 

If we were to size up the company in terms of perks (vs. the product), Balance of Nature takes the cake. Customers can access their additional services, such as the health coaching program, on their website. We suggest that Relief Factor should build in more online support, coaching, accountability options, etc.

Relief Factor Reviews: What Do Customers Think?

Relief Factor Review

In the previous segment, we learned that Balance of Nature deserves a spot in your bathroom cabinet. With that in mind, can Relief Factor out beat this nutritional brand in terms of online reviews? There’s only one way to find out. We’ve searched far and wide to see what customers are really saying about this pharmaceutical company. 

Unfortunately, the reviews are pretty limited. Its official website does hold a few encouraging testimonials, but there are no independent comments listed for its products. So far, it seems that Relief Factor is a brand recommended by many, as it’s reportedly used by ‘tens of thousands’ of customers nationwide. 

“I heard about Relief Factor from my wife…I took it every day, three times a day. I woke up, rolled over and told her ’The pain is gone!’” one customer detailed on their website. 

This is an AMAZING product which has saved me from having a second hip surgery,” one reviewer wrote for the 3-Week Relief Factor quick start treatment. “If I had known about it sooner, perhaps it would have kept me from having BOTH knees and my right hip replaced.”

While there are little to no review forums posted for Relief Factor products, we did find a couple of blogs that critiqued this brand. According to Nebula.org, the QuickStart treatment earns a total of 4/5 stars for its results, scientific claims, and overall cost.

On the other hand, the blog site The Wellness Verge gave a mediocre rating of 3/5 stars. While the author gave credit to the efficacy of the formulas, they noted the potential of side effects—which was coupled with its high prices and non-existent, money-back guarantee. 

“The product requires a person to take 2 pills per day indefinitely and is expensive compared to other joint health supplements. But if you’re in the market for a joint health supplement that has a nice blend of well-researched ingredients, perhaps Relief Factor is worth a try,” reads the Relief Factor review by The Wellness Verge.

Based on a review posted by Phactual.com, the article posited a critical question. Is Relief Factor snake oil? According to their research, this online company isn’t guilty of false advertising. We did find some controversy about this supplement brand. A Relief Factor advertisement was under fire for misleading claims in an FTC-related complaint. 

In a particular segment, their products were endorsed by a celebrity. More specifically, a former Trump administration official—Sebastian Gorka—was named a doctor, even though he didn’t hold a medical degree.

The negativity doesn’t stop there, as the Better Business Bureau holds over 35 complaints with a 1.68/5 star rating. In addition, a majority of customers complained of its deceptive ordering process and ineffective products.

Based on what we’ve gathered so far, this Relief Factor is wary of recommending this brand. This is partially due to the lack of testimonials online. Coupled with its past controversy and poor ratings on BBB, this company might be one to skip.

Is Relief Factor Worth It?

Relief Factor Review

With thousands of supplement brands out there, Relief Factor seems to pale in comparison. Aside from their limited inventory, I wasn’t sold on the efficacy of their formulas. While I’m sure that some customers found success, there’s not much information as to how their additives work. 

On top of that, Relief Factor scores low when it comes to credibility. There’s not a lot to learn from the dismal amount of reviews online. And so far, early signs aren’t promising due to the company’s past controversy. 

Overall, this Relief Factor review suggests that you opt for a different supplement brand. It’s best to have a checklist at hand when shopping; if the company in question values transparency, cost-effectiveness, and its online reputation, chances are that it’s a keeper. 

Relief Factor Promotions & Discounts 

Customers can save a bit of money by signing up for the brand’s subscription plans. As of lately, this Relief Factor review hasn’t come across a promotion or discount code, but we suggest keeping an eye on their social media pages for any future updates.

About Marcy Home Gym

Marcy Pro Home Gym Review

Marcy is your at-home alternative to outdoor fitness and commercial gyms. Stop wasting your time trekking to and from an athletic facility, freezing your buns off, or melting in the heat. Marcy is an online brand specializing in exercise equipment, including a wide variety of stationary bikes, steppers, ellipticals, rowing machines, and treadmills. 

Odds are, you aren’t getting enough exercise. Unfortunately, you’re not alone. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, only about 53% of Americans get enough aerobic exercise, and a measly 23% get enough of both aerobic and strengthening exercise. 

Why? One big reason is time. Between school, work, social commitments, self-care, and the general ups and downs of life, finding time to commute to the gym can be tricky. In fact, a study[1] of barriers to exercise among older adults found that nearly half of participants cited not having enough time as the main factor. 

This is where Marcy comes in. When you work out at home, you don’t have to budget travel time to and from the gym. You can bike as your kids play games or walk on your treadmill as you take conference calls. You can row as you watch TV or pump iron on your lunch to rev you up for that important afternoon meeting. 

Trainer’s Tip: The key to adopting a healthier lifestyle is consistency, and the key to being consistent is convenience! Set yourself up for success! One way to do this is to create a home gym. Now, don’t stop with just buying equipment. Buying the equipment is the crucial first step. 

Step two is creating systems that will ensure you use your home gym. Your health won’t just happen. You have to set yourself up for success. Pick a TV show you only watch when exercising. Create a family challenge where the person who reaches their exercise goal gets to pick the movie for family movie night. Get yourself an accountability buddy. 

Designed for cardio training, Marcy machines are geared to increase your upper, lower, and core strength. With a sizable following of 10.6k on Instagram, they have also been affiliated with numerous influencers, including Melissa Kendter and Wendy Leeann

Overview of Marcy Home Gym

Marcy Pro Home Gym Review

Initially founded in 1913 in Chicago, Illinois, Marcy Pro was part of Walter Marcyan’s passion project when it came to weight lifting. 

Considered a big name in the body-building profession, he surpassed many records while winning several awards over the years. Later on, he decided to open up his own equipment company in Glendale, California. 

Re-established in 1959, Marcy Pro now runs under its parent company, IMPEX. Known for founding Apex, Steelbody, Hers, Bionic Body, and Competitor, this sporting goods retailer was explicitly made to sell cardio-related exercise equipment

With its headquarters located in Pomona, California, Marcy Pro prides itself on offering high-quality products at competitive prices

As they say in a statement on their website: “Marcy features a wide variety of weight training equipment to meet your training goals. Whether you’re looking to add a new component to your strength training, lose weight, build endurance, or looking to recover, Marcy can provide … the right exercise equipment and accessories for your home gym.”

Marcy Pro Home Gym Review

Before I get further into my Marcy home gym review, let’s go over some of the brand’s highlights: 

Highlights

  • A wide variety of indoor exercise equipment to choose from to help you achieve your fitness goals
  • Provides a more convenient solution to gym memberships 
  • Users can work out at home if outdoor exercise is not an option
  • Free shipping on select items 
  • Offers a warranty on select products
  • Does not offer shipping outside of the contiguous US

Whether you’re on a treadmill binge for weight loss or rowing your way to a set of toned abs, Marcy Pro has an impressive selection of exercise equipment suited for every need. Their inventory includes steppers, ellipticals, stationary bikes, rowers, and more.

Considered as add-ons to the average workout routine, they also offer weights, racks, barbells, and gym mats. Moving forward in my Marcy Pro home gym review, I will go over a small list of their best-sellers to help you get started. 

Trainer’s Tip: make sure you fit your exercise purchase to your “fitness personality.” Thrive in your own fitness lane! It doesn’t matter what your mother, daughter, or favorite celebrity uses. What matters is what YOU will use. The best workout benefits are useless if you don’t actually do them.

Take an inventory of your current and past exercise successes. What do you enjoy doing? When have you been the most consistent with your exercise? What is realistic for you to do? What equipment fits your current life, fitness goals, and injury history? Buy what will work for YOU. Buy what you will use!

Marcy Pro Home Gym Equipment Review

It’s time to get physical. Ranging from bench presses to ellipticals, this sporting goods brand offers a wide variety of workout equipment designed to help you get into shape.

In this section of my Marcy Pro home gym review, I will go over a few of their most popular modelsbelow. 

Marcy Exercise Bike Review

Pedal your way to weight loss with the Recumbent Exercise Bike. Designed with magnetic resistance and eight different tensions, this stationary two-wheeler is intended to be seamless and whirr-free. 

Built with an adjustable high-density foam cushion for comfort, it also comes with supportive handlebars and custom foot straps for added security.

Biking offers an excellent low-impact cardiovascular workout. Never underestimate the importance of improving cardiovascular health. Exercise promotes[2] weight reduction and weight maintenance, positively impacts blood pressure, lowers “bad” cholesterol, and can raise “good cholesterol.” Plus, movement can positively impact brain and joint function, mood, energy, and sexual function. Plus, even a moderate bike ride can burn about 300 calories in an hour, and this number increases as you increase the intensity.

So get moving…your entire body will thank you! 

Trainer’s Tip: it is all too easy to skip a workout. I totally get it! If you feel the temptation to skip, try finding ways to make the exercise more enticing. Try watching your favorite television show or listening to music that will pump you up! Your future self will thank you.

To help keep track of your workout goals, the Marcy Pro Marcy Recumbent Exercise Bike with Resistance ME-709 features an LCD computer display to monitor speed, distance, and calories burned.Set with transport wheels to make storing easier, this exercise bike is a steal for $210.

Marcy Pro Smith Machine Review

The Marcy Smith Machine / Cage System is designed for workout enthusiasts and trained professionals alike. If you hate going to the gym, this bad boy is a convenient solution for at-home training. It includes not one, but 6 different training modules:

  1. Olympic smith bar with sealed linear bearings 
  2. Free weight squat rack 
  3. Low pulley and footrest
  4. Pec deck station
  5. High cable crossovers
  6. A weight bench with a dual-function leg developer and preacher curl pad 

Optimized for a full-body workout, users can tone their hamstrings, abs, and biceps. This frame also comes with 6 plate storage pegs for an easy storage solution. Don’t worry, this model can withstand the most intensive workout sessions with its tubular steel frame

If you were thinking of just sticking to cardio, think again. One study[3] found that a combination[4] of endurance and strength training significantly reduced cholesterol levels and HbA1c levels (an indicator of diabetes). Additionally, research[5] has shown that strength training can help to reduce anxiety and increase cognition and sleep quality. This study[6] confirms this as well.

Trainer’s Tip: A well-rounded routine includes strength work, cardiovascular work (including intervals), balance work, and mobility/flexibility exercises. It can be easy to stick with what you know and love, but if you want the best chance of running injury free for life, you have to stay limber and strong. The main takeaway is to make sure you are incorporating strength work into your weekly routine. 

Made to complement the average workout routine, accessories such as a lat bar, shiver bar, and ankle straps are also included. Priced at $1,100, complete the Marcy Smith Machine / Cage System with your choice of Marcy Pro weights.

Marcy Pro Smith Machine / Cage System with Pull-Up Bar and Landmine Station Review

The Marcy Smith Machine / Cage System with Pull-Up Bar and Landmine Station transforms your average at-home studio into a professional gym club. This model can be used without a spotter, thanks to its pulley system. 

Built with height-adjustable dip handles, a multi-grip pull-up bar, and a versatile bench, users can take full advantage of this complete set for toning and strengthening. Whether you’re healthy or have a pre-existing musculoskeletal condition like arthritis, strength training[7] is a great way to reduce any aches and pains you may have. Need more incentive to lift[8]? Benefits include improved physical performance, functional fitness and independence, and bone density. Plus, strength work assists in the prevention and management of type 2 diabetes by decreasing visceral fat and improving insulin sensitivity. 

Trainer’s Tip: To support healthy aging, it’s crucial to strength train (i.e., get squatting), work on balance and single-leg strength activities (try standing on one leg and closing your eyes), and do intervals. Why should you prioritize strength moves such as lunges and squats? The ability to rise from the floor (basically stand from a low lunge or squat) is a large predictor[9] of all-cause mortality. The point is it is vital to create a well-balanced routine and embrace the “today not tomorrow” message. Your body will not maintain its current strength, stamina, and mobility without conscious effort.

This Marcy Pro smith cage with bench combo also comes with an adjustable seat pad, a preacher cushion for rest, and transport wheels for storage. It can accommodate up to 600 lbs in total in terms of the weight capacity on the bench. 

Complete with several other attachments to make full use of your workout session, this workout station costs $1,800 at checkout.

Marcy Pro Smith Machine Home Gym Training System Cage Review 

Get those gains with the Marcy Pro Smith Machine Home Gym Training System Cage

Designed with a two-piece compact system, this full-body workout set features an adjustable smith bar, a dual overhead pulley system, a reinforced weight bench, and a 2,000-lb tensile strength aircraft table.

Made for bench pressing, squat rack exercises, and pull-ups, this all-in-one frame can accommodate up to 600 lbs. If you play sports and want to enhance your skills, these moves can help. One study[10] showed that exercises such as squats and leg presses increased jump performance.

For those who like to work out in peace, this Marcy Pro Marcy Weight Bench Set is designed to be used without the help of stoppers and is priced at $1,300.

Marcy Pro Home Gym System 150lb Weight Stack Machine Review

Sick of weight hogs, scheduling issues, and expensive gym memberships? Work out at home with the Marcy Home Gym System 150 lb Weight Stack Machine

Reinforced with a sturdy 14-gauge wheel, this frame holds up to the test of time thanks to its powder-coated finish. Designed to be entirely customizable, users can affix their preferred weight by changing the setting on the selector pin.

Complete with a dual-function press arm, lat bar, and adjustable preacher curl pad, this Marcy Pro 150lb Stack Home Gym enables you to get that full-body workout. 

It also comes with a double pulley station that offers several training options for building muscle strength. Unfortunately, this machine is currently sold out. But once it’s back in stock, you can get it for $600.

Marcy Pro Standard Bench with 100lb Weight Set Review

Cast those dumbbells aside and get serious with the Standard Bench with 100lb Weight Set. Considered an excellent choice for novice trainers, this model features a vinyl-coated seat with 5 different position settings

Not sure why you should invest? Not only is the bench press a multi-joint motion (i.e., it works multiple muscles), it is a staple of upper body training. The press strengthens your pectoral (chest) muscles, as well as the deltoids (shoulders) and triceps (back of upper arm). 

Complete with a standard size weight bar, it also provides varying plate sizes, including 25-lb, 15-lb, and 10-lb weights. 

Built with a durable steel frame and a powder-coated finish, this Marcy Pro Bench Press can withstand those vigorous workout sessions without pause. Made to accommodate up to 300 lbs, the bench set costs $430

Sadly, this model is currently sold out, but keep checking back on their website to snag this upper-body enhancer. If you need something now, try the Marcy Pro Olympic Weight Bench.

Marcy Pro Folding Standard Weight Bench Review

You can daydream all you want, but those 6-pack abs aren’t going to form without doing a bit of legwork. The Folding Standard Weight Bench press enables you to get that beach-toned body thanks to its adjustable seat and inclusion of comfortable padding. 

Optimized for 5’ weight bars, this frame features high-density upholstery for extra support to help users push through that extra set.

As a plus, this model is ergonomically designed. If you’re a veteran strength trainer, you know that proper form is essential for getting the most out of your workout and avoiding injury[11]

This model is built to be collapsible and easily stored. For those who have extra room in their workout studio, perhaps it’s also time to take a gander at the Marcy Pro Deluxe Cage System

Designed to hold 300lbs, the Folding Standard Weight Bench costs $250.

Marcy Pro 45lb Olympic Barbell Review

With a max threshold of 1,500lbs, the 45lb Olympic Barbell has you all set to train like a heavyweight champion. 

Constructed with durable, commercial-grade steel, this bench press necessity comes with precision thrust bearings. Equipped with a machine-knurled grip, this model ensures no slippage to prevent future accidents from happening.

Created to meet International Weightlifting Federation standards, trainers can use this product to gain muscle and build strength. Flex on your friends for only $210.

Marcy Pro Reviews: What Do Customers Think?

Marcy Pro Home Gym Review

After combing through the internet for my Marcy Pro home gym review, I found that many customers favored this exercise brand. Most of their best-selling products have dozens to hundreds of positive comments on the company website.

For example, the Marcy Smith Machine / Cage System with Pull-Up Bar and Landmine Station showcased a total of 165 reviews with an average score of 4.3/5 stars.

Buyers have noted that this product was easy to assemble and well worth the money.

“Anyone considering building a home gym, this is the one for you. The versatility for working out was a big surprise. I was able to take most of what I did in the gym and recreate it all on this system. Well made, heavy duty.” 

Other products on the brand’s official website have similarly great ratings:

  • Marcy Smith Machine / Cage System | MD-9010G: 4.3/5 stars out of over 850 reviews
  • Marcy Pro Smith Machine Home Gym Training System Cage | SM-4903: 4.7/5 stars out of nearly 59 reviews
  • Marcy Inspire Rubber Hex Dumbbell | RHDB-005: 4.6/5 stars out of over 632 reviews

I also found positive ratings on some of their Amazon product pages. For the Marcy Pro Smith Machine Weight Bench Home System, there are over 59 comments posted with a general score of 4.7/5 stars

Buyers have noted that this product helped them achieve a full-body workout. Others stated that the model provided a smooth exercise experience with no bumps or friction.

“So far this machine is everything I was looking for. It is short enough to fit in my basement and took the place of my old Smith machine, squat rack, and pull-up machine. I went from three pieces of equipment to one. The cable system is very smooth.” 

Independent blogs such as Fit & Me and The Home Gym also gave favorable reviews. Authors on both websites concluded that Marcy Pro’s strengths lie in its versatility and durability.

The brand’s unique foldable design made their products more space-friendly and ergonomic. On the Marcy Diamond Elite Smith Cage System MD-9010G, Fit & Me wrote:  

“This is by far the most advanced Marcy Home Gym that you could possibly go with…It comes with a great number of accessories and attachments which allow you to perform well over 100 different exercises in order to give you a full-body workout from top to bottom.”

While looking at Marcy Pro home gym reviews, I found a few negative comments. Some Amazon customers found the assembly process to be a nightmare. So make sure you plan for extra time during assembly, and be ready to contact their customer service team in case you need help. But this can be a struggle with any piece of equipment and seemed to be in the minority.

From what I’ve seen so far, it seems that the brand has more pros than cons, with many customers loving Marcy Pro products for their versatility, size, and durability.

Is Marcy Pro Worth It?

Is Marcy Pro legit? Based on my review, I’m inclined to say yes. We all know how inconvenient gym memberships are. Unsurprisingly, one study[12] found that only 50% of people renew their gym memberships after one year. With costly monthly fees and scheduling issues, we often ditch our habitual exercise routines to save ourselves the headache. 

Marcy Pro offers a wide selection of workout equipment designed to be used in the comfort of your own home. Customers can train on their own time while saving a bit of money in the long run. 

With that being said, their products can be pretty expensive at first glance, but buyers need to consider how much they will save compared to an average gym membership. 

According to Healthline, an average monthly subscription rounds up to $60$70. That can seriously drain your bank account, especially if you don’t make regular use of it. 

On the downside, negative reviews from customers stated that products came with missing parts and that some workout equipment is not designed for all users.

Given all of this, after writing my Marcy Pro home gym review, I still recommend the brand for its overall cost-effective gym solutions free of shady subscription plans.

Marcy Pro Promotions & Discounts
