My favorite thing is the packaging. Everything is compostable, and there's no plastic used. I did slightly freak out when I received my first shipment and saw what I thought was plastic enveloping the cardboard tube, but it's made of corn and totally biodegradable so all is well. My one complaint, and it's a huge one, is the fish tasting burps. Fish makes me *****, like for real. I threw up once from one of these burps. It's really really gross. I know the vitamins have an enteric coating, but it's not working. I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. I've taken the pills on an empty stomach, after food, in the middle of a meal- I always get the burps. It's an oily, disgusting, fishy burp and the only solace I have is that is not actually fish-thank goodness! However, I shall continue to take these because I can't find any other plastic free vitamins anywhere. Also, it contains the vitamins my Dr specifically says I need to take. I just really hate the burps. If someone has advice on how to avoid that, I'm open to trying anything.
I enjoy this product but the customer service is terrible. No one will answer my emails about issues logging into my account and changing my subscription frequency. HELLO. Please answer my email!
The good: regular delivery of product, I can feel the difference in energy once I started taking these, love that they're plastic free. Skipping straight to the **** here: I want to wholeheartedly love this product but the excessive packaging is starting to get to me. It doesn't really matter if they're compostable because there's still production occurring. Why have bioplastic covering if there's also a seal? Why have, not one, but TWO cotton balls inside? I don't really see the need for all this fluff (pun intended). You're minimizing plastic waste, but you're not really minimizing waste even if they are compostable. Not many people have access to compost bins, and even if they do compost in landfills, why have the packaging parts be created in the first place? It just seems excessive to me and I can't help but feel guilty every time I open up a new package just to throw the packaging parts into the trash. Thinking about the resources that created those parts in the first place. If this doesn't change, I may have to go find a different product that better fits my values and goals. I really wish it would change because I do find that the product is working for me.
I've been using Terraseed Multivitamins for about a year, and I am very satisfied with how they work. Although I try to keep my diet as healthy as possible, I appreciate the reassurance of knowing that I am getting the added nutrition from this vitamin.
I searched far and wide for an excellent vitamin for vegans. When I found Terraseed, I was optimistic but now after almost a year I could not recommend them more. Great vitamins and great value.
