The multivitamin someone chooses is a very personal thing. There are so many reasons why someone chooses what they do. Maybe it is brand name, maybe cost, maybe taste. There is so much information out there about multivitamins, about whether they work, about what kind to take, about what vitamins you need, etc. It can be daunting.
I am not a medical professional. What I want to share is the reasons why I choose to use GEM and the benefits I have noticed. So first of all, what is GEM?
What is GEM?
I first found out about GEM from an ad on instagram. Those ads will sometimes work. What it is is a chewable multivitamin. What is different is that it is actually made of real food. What is different is that it is NOT a supplement.
As they state in their FAQs, they do not have a supplement label. They have a nutrition label. Their vitamins are made from actual food items as shown below. Each vitamin promotes clarity supports brain function. The promote balance and a better stress response. It supports energy and beauty by supporting regeneration.
Why is all that important?
Here's the thing, your body will process the nutrition from real foods better than from supplements. When your body is megadosing on vitamins, it does not process the extra. It expels it.
With nutrition lables, there are more FDA regulations and every ingredient has to be labeled. GEM fills in the gaps. Using real foods will help your body absorb the nutrition rather than expelling it. Since the nutrition is from real foods, your body will absorb and metabolize more naturally. You can read what GEM has to say about it HERE.
Why else did I choose GEM?
Besides all the health benefits listed above, there are other reason why I chose GEM as my multivitamin choice.
Because it is so easy. Every month on schedule I am billed for my vitamins. They then deliver them straight to my mailbox. They keep me informed every step of the way including a notification of when my payment was received and notfiying me of when my vitamins were sent. I can always rely on my vitamins coming to me.
Because they taste so good. You can choose from lemon, peppermint, or cacao. I get cacao every month and I love it. I take it in the morning with my cup of coffee and it is like a delicious but healthy little pastry with my cup of coffee. I also tried the lemon and it was delicious. It was not too overwhelming of a flavor but had the perfect hint of lemon.
Because I don't like pills. I can take them but I don't enjoy them. The fact that I can take a vitamin without having to take a pill that I don't enjoy or avoid eating a too sweet, weird tasting gummy is a major win. I actually look forward to taking my vitamin everyday which is not something I could say before this.
If you aren't sure which flavor you prefer you can actually order a trio kit to try all 3 and it will last you half a month. You can order that HERE.
If you order a subscription, you will get a cute tin as well. You use this to store your vitamins in each month. It keeps them fresh and chic at the same time. You can order a subscription HERE.
I'm so glad to have found a multivitamin that suits me. I know my body is getting the nutrition that it needs and it is something that I actually enjoy eating. These fit so well into my clean eating lifestyle. I don't think I will be going back to those pesky pills again.
