Feel claim to be “reinventing multivitamins for the modern world”. Supplements and vitamins often come with lots of impressive claims with minimal supporting evidence. However, Feel provide lots of proof to demonstrate that their products are worth trying.
The Feel product range contains naturally sourced ingredients that were selected based on the latest scientific research. Currently, they supply moodtropics, braintropics and this multivitamin. In the future, they will be launching Feel immunity, Feel beauty and Feel algae omega 3.
When you order the multivitamins, they come in a flat cardboard box that will easily fit through your letterbox. Inside is a waxy paper pouch that contains 60 capsules; a months supply of the recommended two per day. This is a 100% sustainable product, and the packing is entirely bio-degradable. These capsules are suitable for vegetarians and vegans and contain no artificial fillers, binders or flavourings.
When my pack of vitamins arrived, I was immediately impressed by the recyclable packaging but put off by the claim of ‘multivitamins reinvented’. As fas as I can see, ‘reinvention’ refers to the facts that they’re high-quality, free from artificial additives and based on the latest research. While this is excellent, it’s by no means unique in this sector. Feel multivitamins are immediately impressive but I think that ‘reinvented’ is too strong a phrase.
I’m always sceptical of the inevitably impressive phrases used by supplement companies. Still, I was pleased to see that the ‘WeAreFeel’ website is packed full of useful information to add depth and evidence to their claims.
In each capsule, you get over 30 beneficial ingredients in their most active form, including:
- Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, C, D3, E, K, folic acid and biotin.
- Minerals; Calcium, chromium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, iodine, selenium, zinc and boron.
- Other natural substances; Alpha lipoic acid, piperine, citrus bioflavonoids, coenzyme Q10, grape seed extract, L-glutamine, lutein, reishi mushroom extract, spirulina powder and turmeric extract
- Vegetable capsule shell (Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose)
- Rice extract
Who are Feel?
Feel are a UK-based supplement company who aim to create products with raw materials that are natural and effective. Helpfully, they provide a long list of over 500 scientific studies to show why they’ve chosen to include each ingredient.
Many companies pack their multivitamins with excessive amounts of each ingredient but Feel have a senior medical board and a team of researchers who have carefully selected the quantities of each item for optimum safety and effect. All their products are free from GMO, fillers, bulking agents, allergens and gluten. Their multivitamins have also been approved as vegan by PETA and are labelled as halal and kosher.
Feel’s values are; transparency, care, sustainability and affordability. These visibly feed into every aspect of their company and their products, resulting in high-quality supplements that are suitable for most budgets.
Awards and certifications
Feel state that they only get ingredients from suppliers that meet the rigorous standards of Good Manufacturing Practices. They also require any raw material to be tested by the supplier before it’s added to the final product.
The multivitamins are then tested by the third-party lab Eurofins who are industry leaders in food and supplements tests. This ensures that you’re getting what it says on the label and that the product is safe and free from contamination. Eurofins are registered with UKAS, which is an independent regulator that checks that provides accreditations to certification and inspection services. If you visit the ‘Science’ tab on the WeAreFeel website, you’ll see the certificate number so you can verify that it’s genuine.
I would have awarded a higher score if: There was a copy of the certificates of analysis available for customers to view.
Ease of use
The capsules are large, but I found them easy to swallow with a sip of water. They’re easy to use, and there is a brief note on the packaging to tell you the recommended daily amount.
While I thoroughly appreciate the recycled, sustainable packaging, it didn’t work well. Inside the flat cardboard box is a paper pouch with a resealable plastic strip across the top. Once you cut a small strip of the paper off, you can access the capsules and close them up again with the strip.
Unfortunately, for me, the pouch kept popping back open and wouldn’t stay sealed. This wasn’t very secure, and on a couple of occasions, I sent the capsules spilling across the floor because I knocked the pouch. After a week of this, I emptied the remaining capsules into a glass jam jar I had.
I would have awarded more if the pouch sealed securely.
The capsules have a peculiar flavour that I can only compare to a combination of metal and spearmint. The shell is made of cellulose hydroxypropyl methyl which is a semi-synthetic plant-based material and doesn’t usually have a flavour. The taste didn’t put me off; it was just slightly surprising. Once I learnt to expect it, it wasn’t an issue.
I would have awarded a higher score if: there was no strange taste.
How effective are they?
On the WeAreFeel website, it’s evident that they expect these capsules to work because of the precise formulation they’ve used for each product. By basing the ingredients on scientific research, they’ve decided not to use food-based or whole food ingredients but instead gone with those that have worked best in the research.
I took the 60 capsules, two a day over the course of a month. For the first three weeks, I didn’t notice any effects, but towards the end of the month, I was staying focused for longer and had much more energy. Although it’s always hard to say what caused these changes, I felt that the multivitamins were responsible for the difference.
Value for money
Something that raises the Feel brand above others is their honesty and transparency when it comes to the effects of their capsules. While many companies claim to be transparent, very few do it as candidly as Feel. To see what I mean, visit the ‘Science’ page and look at the results of their survey and the feedback from nutritionists.
Many brands would have tried to spin this information positively, but here it is brutally honest. The results of the survey show that 45% of respondents noticed a difference to their skin, 44% saw a positive difference to their nails, 37% noticed a positive difference to their hair, 26% got better sleep and 30% felt their immunity improved. This is important because it shows the reality; these supplements do work for some people, but the results are varied and don’t produce positive differences for everyone.
Not only do Feel make it clear what you can expect, but they also provide incredible value. One month’s supply of 60 capsules will cost you £11.95 or £10.95 per box if you order a three months supply. They also offer a 30-day money-back guarantee and provide numerous ways to get extra money off through various deals and coupons.
Although I don’t think that Feel has ‘reinvented’ multivitamins in the way that they claim, they’ve made one that’s significantly more affordable than similar brands.
