Care/Of Individualized Vitamin Packs

takecareof.com

We’ve all seen these cute little vitamin packs that are advertised on social media, right? They have your name and an intriguing little quote, but what’s it really about?

NOTE: THE FOLLOWING REVIEW DOES CONTAIN LINKS THAT EQUAL PERKS TO ME. IF YOU USE MY LINK TO PURCHASE ANY PRODUCTS, I MAY RECEIVE A SMALL AMOUNT OR REWARD AT NO EXTRA COST TO YOU. I DID NOT RECEIVE ANY TYPE OF FREE PRODUCT OR COMPENSATION FOR A POSITIVE REVIEW. ALL OF THE FOLLOWING WAS BASED ON AN UNBIASED OPINION. YOU CAN VIEW MY DISCLOSURES STATEMENT HERE.

So I just started Care/Of personalized vitamins. I’ve been taking them for a week. So far, my opinion is not super valuable, but I can share my initial thoughts. If you haven’t checked out their website, you can do so here.

If you look up their description on their website, it reads:

“You do you – Everyone has a different path to personal health, and we’re here to help you find yours. We believe in the power of technology, science, and human empathy to make the journey simpler. Let us help take care of you.”

They base their business on honesty and quality. Further research on their website finds that:

“We promise to be honest with you. It’s simple and may even sound mundane. But in an industry overrun with false labels, magic pills, and asterisks, we’re here to deliver it to you straight.”

And….

“We build products we want to take. We also make products for our sisters, brothers, friends and mothers. Which might explain our obsession with quality.”

One other thing to mention, they state on their website that they are “transparent” in their choices, provide guidance in what they provide, and choose your curated packs wisely.

I can attest to that.

Here’s what happens. You sign up for an account and take a short quiz. In this quiz, you tell the interwebs what you want out of the vitamins (energy, mental health, skin care, etc.). Then, for each category, they ask you about 5 questions to get a better understanding. At the end of the quiz, it tells you their recommendations. The great thing about this is you can change it and add or take away from it; it’s not set in stone.

Each recommendation of herbs and vitamins tells you what exactly it does, why you need it, where it comes from, and the research behind it. It even tells you the number/types of studies and the information behind it. It tells you the types of ingredients in case you can/will not take something with milk, eggs, fish, nuts, wheat, etc.

Back to the part where you can adjust your box. The site recommended five different pills/capsules/soft gels for me to take. I took away one of them because I just didn’t really feel the need after I looked into what it was all about. I ended with four supplements at a cost of $39 per month. This may sound steep, but think about the vitamin aisle at your drugstore or grocery store. Overwhelming much? YEP!

These come individualized in daily packs with cute little quotes on them.

Honestly, I was AWFUL at taking vitamins before this. I tried so many different ways – timers, post-its, pill organizers – nothing worked. For some reason, something about these make me remember to take them everyday.

Another great thing is when you open the box, it gives all of the information on each one of your supplements in a little book. Unfortunately, my co-inhabitant of the apartment threw mine away before I could a) get a picture of it or b) really study its’ contents.

Do they work? No idea yet (I’ll update you later).

Are they intriguing? Of course! Their marketing is on point.

Would I recommend it? I would and I have. If a cute little quote and easy packaging gets me to better my overall health…why not? C

Here’s the code – use it or don’t…up to you. (why wouldn’t I plug if I have the choice?) KTV7KF

If you use this code, you get $40 off of your first purchase. 

EDIT 7/31/2018 – This code may no longer work. If it doesn’t, I still recommend trying it. I’m still paying full price for mine and will continue doing so.

If you’re still with me, one last thing about this company. I’ll quote this exactly from their website so it doesn’t get lost in translation.

“Through our partnership with the GOOD+ Foundation, a portion of every Care/of purchase goes towards mothers in need of prenatal vitamins — including the ones you help make happen. It’s all good.”

That’s all! Let me know if you’ve tried Care/Of! I’d love to hear your story!
