I ordered the Fruits and Veggies supplements from Balance of Nature’s website, which was a smooth process. Initially, I had trouble tracking my order through the provided tracking number, so I started a live chat with a customer service representative. They responded quickly and were able to help me solve the issue in under half an hour. My order arrived within five days, which was faster than I thought.
I took the fruit and vegetable capsules either in the morning or early afternoon, depending on my schedule. The fruit capsules had a slightly sweet aftertaste, which I liked. On the other hand, the veggie capsules tasted earthy, which I wasn’t a fan of. They are both a bit large but were easy to swallow with water.
I didn’t notice any effects while taking these supplements—no extra stamina, for example, like one customer testimonial claimed. I generally try to eat plenty of whole fruits and vegetables every day. On days when I didn’t have time to cook or eat enough fruits and vegetables, it was nice to have a “backup” with extra nutrition. However, I wish I knew exactly how many servings of fruits and veggies are in the capsules or the total percentages of nutrients.
In my opinion, these supplements might be helpful for someone who doesn’t have time to cook or has to follow a restrictive diet.
That said, I personally wouldn’t purchase Balance of Nature again. For $89.95, I would rather purchase more fresh fruits and vegetables and incorporate those into my diet. Even with the discounted subscription option, I still consider that too high of a cost to “fill in the gaps,” especially for a product that doesn’t offer more specifics about its nutritional content.
