GEM Vitamin Reviews + Testimonials

Ahead, find GEM’s most-trusted reviews and testimonials from real customers on taste, quality, effect, and if they’re worth the cost. 

There’s a lot to take into account when deciding on the best multivitamin for you: Formulation, convenience, price, and even taste all come into play. But even more powerful are customer reviews. Just like with a new restaurant or a movie, you may want to seek an opinion from someone who’s already experienced it for the most honest, transparent, and complete assessment. Plus, when someone’s had the opportunity to experience something as personal as a multivitamin, anecdotal commentary—like more energy, fewer sleepless nights, and stronger nails or hair—might just be the most useful.

Unlike typical vitamins that come in capsule, tablet, or even powdered form, GEM Vitamins are square-shaped bites that are formulated using whole food ingredients such as dates, pumpkin seeds, and quinoa. GEM Vitamins are 100% vegan and free from soy, gluten, and artificial colors, binders, and fillers.

GEM Vitamins Review: Taste

GEM Vitamins are made from real, whole food—meaning they don’t taste fake or synthetic like most capsules or supplements. Here’s how customers review the taste of GEM vitamins. 

“Taste takes a little getting used to, as with most things in this realm, but by about the 3rd one you’re hooked & they taste good now! Definitely better than vitamins, I’m not going back. Packaging is great, clean & simple, I like it a lot." —Tara S. 

"So far I have ordered the $55 pack and got the 4 weekly packs of the Citrus Ginger and they gave samples of the Lemon Raspberry and the Cacao. The Lemon Raspberry is great and Citrus Ginger for every day. The Cacao was good too but I like the fruity flavors best. I had mentioned in another post that on day 3 I felt a difference, and I am on day 9+ and feel great!" —Tonya M. 

“[Calm Bites] were tasty, effective, and awesome! Used it before bed and slept great and woke up feeling good." —Kristin Ingebrigston

"It has a slight spicy kick with a little bit of crunch. I enjoy the texture because it's not dry and it doesn't flake apart.” —Leia Powell Calm Bite review

"My first round of 28 bites arrived today and I was pleasantly surprised at how good the Citrus Ginger tasted. I am looking forward to seeing any positive changes in my gut health." —Kimberly Z. 

"Tastes great!! I've been using these for about a month now and am feeling the difference in energy and mood." —Meagen Z. 

"The taste is not good, but the results are great.  I like that I am getting so many vitamins and minerals in a pure, natural form.  I am sleeping better and feeling well generally.  I certainly will continue to use this product." —Bonnie S.

“I think it's a really nice touch to add the cacao powder. At first I wasn’t sure about it, but after getting used to it, it makes each piece feel special and a bit more elevated than a typical vitamin. Classy vitamin ;)” —Bryan C.

"I liked the combination of both earthy and the chocolate of the cacao mixed. It felt like a sophisticated treat!" —SallyAnne M.

"I was not expecting this to taste good. I thought it would be like all the other things I have tried in the past. But the Citrus Ginger tastes great. The texture is similar to a brownie. They are very easy to take and I am enjoying them. I have only taken a couple days but I do notice I am able to concentrate better on my work. I am extremely satisfied and look forward to trying other flavors." —Rebecca D.

"The chocolate flavor has improved along with the texture (or maybe I'm just getting used to it). This is a better way to get what your body needs.” —Ron D.

“The lemon raspberry bites have a better texture and flavor than the others I’ve tried. Very happy with them!” —Hannah H.

“The flavor is great and I really like the consistency as well. I enjoyed the old lemon bit flavor so I was actually a bit nervous when I heard you were changing it, but it’s an improvement on something that was already good and I’m quite satisfied!” —Gretchen S.

“The texture is like a soft cookie. The taste reminds me of one of my favorite cereals from when I was a kid.” —Kevin S.

GEM Vitamins Review: Effect

While taste is important, the reason you take a daily vitamin is to improve the way your body works. GEM customers report more restful sleep, better digestion, stronger hair and nails, and even relief from ADHD and psoriatic arthritis. Here’s what else real customers had to say about the way GEM vitamins results. 

"The vitamins have changed my life for the better. I have less pain and I sleep better. I think they are reducing breakouts also. I am so happy I decided to try them." —Cynthia D.

"I am in my third month and I definitely notice a difference. I am sleeping better and generally feeling better. I am getting used to the taste, and am very pleased with the results. I will continue to order" —Bonnie S.

"I tried these and they’ve really helped my digestion and inflammation. And with less inflammation = less nerve pain. I’m sold! I wish you had the large containers in stock!!" —Deborah C.

"I liked the option of the variety. Because every day is different for me and having the option to choose what I'm feeling like for that day works for me! Lemon Raspberry is my favorite! Love that everything is all natural and gives me what my body needs." —Claudia F.

"I paused my delivery for a short time but realized the vitamins had pretty much reversed my nail indentation! One nail had a vertical deep indentation and it was smooth now. I really know I was absorbing the ingredients of the GEM vitamins better than before! Thanks! I just reactivated my subscription.” —Terri J.

“I take one every morning with my meds and other supplements.  I seem to have more of an attention span, even though I've been on ADHD meds for years. I totally recommend these.” —Stephanie F.

"I have been taking the Citrus Ginger for just four days and wow what a difference from day one! I have psoriatic arthritis and had no energy. I also have ADHD and this has improved both tremendously. My husband says he can even see that I’m more focused on tasks and in general. And before he can even jump on a project, I’m already done with it. My energy levels are up up up! I am so glad to have found these, they really are a gem!!!!!" —Dawn M.

“I’ve received my second order and chose the Citrus Ginger flavor. They are DELICIOUS. Very refreshing taste and like a not too sweet dessert bite. Texture like a dense, moist brownie. I’m a big fan of this flavor! Still having great results with my energy and pain levels, too!!” —Kathy G.

“My nails always break when they get any kind of long. I started GEM about two months ago and noticed that my nails would grow and grow without breaking. In early August, I went on a two-week holiday and forgot to bring my GEM vitamins with me. Would you believe my nails started breaking again? I’ve been back about six days now and my nails are getting back on track. If it’s doing this for my nails, I can only imagine what other wonderful things these vitamins are doing for my body.” —Wendy H.

“I received my first order last week and immediately started taking it. Day 1: HUGE decrease in my arthritic knee that is “bone on bone” and has been excruciatingly painful. Until now!! Days 3-5: I am waking up BEFORE my alarm goes off and actually feeling rested. Unheard of for years as I have health conditions that cause severe fatigue. Day 6: Felt so much more energy than usual I didn’t need to lie down in the afternoon. I happily cooked, instead. This is amazing!! I am so happy! I think I’ve FINALLY found a multivitamin that I can tolerate, without becoming nauseated, that is made from whole foods and that helps increase my energy. THANK YOU, GEM!!!” —Laurianne P.

"So far I have ordered the $55 pack and got the 4 weekly packs of the Citrus Ginger and they gave samples of the Lemon Raspberry and the Cacao. The Lemon Raspberry is great and Citrus Ginger for every day. The Cacao was good too but I like the fruity flavors best. I had mentioned in another post that on day 3 I felt a difference, and I am on day 9+ and feel great!" —Tonya M. 

"I am 67 and the daily multivitamin is life-changing!" —Carlee S.

"I tried these and they’ve really helped my digestion and inflammation. And with less inflammation means less nerve pain. I’m sold! I wish you had the large containers in stock!!" —Deborah C.

“I eat healthy and workout five times a week but have struggled with hormone, inflammation, Candida and cortisol issues that are affecting life. I started on these five days ago and already see a slight change. The sleep gem really is a gem…I was using cbd gummies for sleep but these work much better so far. I’m so glad I tried these!!" —Sherri C.

GEM Vitamins Review: Cost and Customer Experience

While it can be tempting to buy the least expensive multivitamin on the market, many are filled with synthetic fillers and binders that do nothing for you. GEM MultiBITES range from $55/month for our Daily Essentials, up to $130/month to add on both Calm and Sleep Bites. Here’s how real customers rated GEM’s cost in comparison to its benefits, as well as its customer experience.

"We love these GEMs! Taste so good! Hubby and I share our monthly subscription due to them being a bit pricey. We bought the day and night time ones. They work and we feel a lot healthier.” —Bernice N. 

“Yummy. And I can tell my inflammation has been reduced significantly. I can tell I'm more focused. Worth every penny!" —Mendy B.

“I was initially skeptical of GEM, I thought the price was outrageous compared to other multivitamins. But then I got to thinking: It’s not like other multivitamins. It’s actual real food. I tried it, I’ve only been taking GEM for a little more than a week, and I can feel the difference. If you have the $$$ to pay more for your daily multi vitamin, I personally think it’s worth it. The taste isn’t amazing, but you’re not buying it as a treat or dessert so don’t expect it to be delicious. P.S. I’m not affiliated with GEM or being reimbursed by them. I was not asked for a review or to make a comment." —Jeff S. 

"The ease of the website and the speed of shipping is incredible.  Their chat feature is nice and quick too.  I am looking forward to new flavors and plan on being a long time customer." —Stephanie F.

"To the folks at Gem, I wanted to thank you for being such a great company. Your products have really helped me in a couple extraordinary ways. On top of improving my mood and metabolism, they have helped me to establish a more daily routine in my life. More than this still, these little nutrient bites have helped me begin understanding how to find myself valuable, and worthy of peace and happiness. Everything about your brand makes me feel special and important. But the reason I’m writing this with tears in my eyes is simply because I had one of the hardest weeks of my life, and you sent me a few extra sample bites. This tiny act, although probably more for marketing purposes, made me feel like I was deserving of good things in a big way. —@luckypachydermproductions

“Thank you for making a blend without Ashwaghanda!!! I love your cacao vitamin but the Ashwaghanda is an inflammatory trigger for people with autoimmune disorders. [Citrus]-Ginger blend is free of Ashwaghanda!!! Thank you!!!! I’ll restart my subscription!!" —@sallyraspberry

"Been taking for over a year. On time delivery every month and my hair, nails and skin have shown noticeable differences. Highly recommend.” —Marianne T.

"I've been using them for several months and have never had any issues with delivery or customer service, my whole experience has been awesome!" —Lois E. S.
