Two of the amazing Trivelo test associates have been working on this detailed Nourished Vitamin Review for the past month. Using the product daily and recording the impacts it has had on their training.

Nourished (“Get Nourished”) is seeking to change the way the world thinks, buys and experiences nutrition. They have created custom stacks of gummy loveliness to help you get the perfect supplement for your specific needs. With so much focus on health and well-being at the moment this is exactly the type of product we think you need to hear more about. All the ingredients are sourced from high-grade vegan whole food sources and lab-tested with each one made to order.

Sophie and Alan selected the right blend of ingredients for their custom nutrition stacks. They each conducted a full month of testing with the results below. Sophie will be continuing to test for a full three months and provide an update to the review upon completion.

Who Am I? Why did I Get Nourished?

I’m Sophie Johnson, GB Age Group Triathlete. I’ve been participating in high level sport for the last 6 years and all while holding down a full time job.

I train 7 days a week most weeks and this combined with being in the office 9-5 I’m tired and more susceptible to illness and poor eating habits due to the tiredness.

With this said, I took the questionnaire on the Nourished website and with added information about things.  Like how much I drank (New year, was too much) I told them I’d like to concentrate on weight loss (from xmas) and immune health.

I was more than happy with their suggestions.  They covered off things that would suppress my appetite, boost my immunity and recover my liver from the damage of xmas and new year.

Unboxing the product

There was a little confusion over how long it took my Nourished pack to arrive (thanks Mr Postman).  With pack in hand I was ready to leap into the trial.

First of all, I was NOT expecting them to be A) so large and B) so squishy. I think for some reason I’d imagined some fairly large donkey pills that were dry and chalky.

For a forgetful me, I was happy to see they were laid out in 7*4 rows so I could see if I’d taken my dose that day. I was also incredibly impressed at their attention to detail in that my name was printed on the front of their biodegradable packets (double kudos!).

First Impressions of Nourished

The first experience.

I was more than pleasantly surprised that they were incredibly tasty jelly sweets. While munching away (making satisfied noises) I read that they were free from any of the big allergens.  Meaning I could recommend them to any of my vegan, celiac or lactose intolerant friends. 

They have a beautifully (sugar free) sweet and zingy citrus taste.  I knew I’d look forward to my “sweet treat” every day.  But thankfully could have them before bed as I knew I wouldn’t be left with a sugar buzz.

Week One Test Results

Was a tumultuous one.  Unfortunately I had food poisoning so couldn’t speak to feeling particularly great.   I couldn’t work out if my reduced hunger towards the end of the week was that or the effects of Nourished. I needed more time, but was still happy to be gobbling them down daily as they taste so good.

I was still basking in the glow of the fact they were personal to me.

Week Two Test Results

By this point I was happily convinced.  I was now eating like “one normal hungry person” instead of “two abnormally hungry people”.

After the ironman (July last year) I had REALLY struggled to get my eating under control again. To give context, staying under 3000Kcals a day was a challenge.

I was starting to make smarter choices as I wasn’t constantly hungry.  This is a major win and the extra I had put on has now come off.

Week Three Test Results

I was getting a lot better at not drinking, the need to drink had become less. Not sure if this was part of appetite suppression of the nutrients in there to repair my liver. 

One thing I definitely know for sure is that my liver has recovered and my tolerance for alcohol is back to the low it used to be at. I’m happily a cheap date now, for both food and drink.

This can only mean great things for my athletic performance.

End of Month Test Results

I’m definitely slimmer, eating less and drinking less. I’m super happy about this and as a result I’m getting into other great life habits (sleeping well, training well).

As for the immunity part.  It’s hard to say. It’s one of those things where you would only really know if you could run an alternate universe where the other Sophie didn’t take the supplements and see who fared the best.

I’m still too nervous to stop taking my Curranz as I know that is packed with antioxidants and does great things for my recovery.

What am I missing?

I’d love to be able to stop taking all of my other supplements as if I could get them in one pill. I currently also take liquid iron to escape fatigue and get better sleep.  Vitamin D because it’s one of the most effective and important supplements anyone could take (especially during winter) and Curranz for recovery and immunity. 

Only being able to select 2 goals was limiting for me.  I’d like to be less tired/well recovered, maintain high immunity and look after my liver and hunger issues. I think being a triathlete I want it all. HAH.

My Summary of Get Nourished Product Review

I’m a fan. They taste good, they have done what they’ve set out to do and they carry little risk to me as an athlete.

It was only today I found out that we can’t (as a WADA tested athlete) take any vitamin complex by IV or injection.  So knowing I have everything I need, printed just for me into one pill is quite reassuring that I’m giving my body the best, safe chance.

They’re accessible to all, environmentally considerate, well designed and well thought through. The only drawback is that I can’t have all my supplements this way.

Disclaimer and thanks.

All views are my own. I’d like to thank Trivelo for giving me this opportunity and @Get_Nourished for choosing me to test their product.

Nourished 1 Month Test by Alan Lightfoot

Alan is a 52 year old vegetarian triathlete competing as a GB age group athlete since 2016

Introduction to me

My name is Alan Lightfoot and I am a 52 year old male. My sporting background is running and have completed 18 full marathons and countless half’s, 10K’s etc over the last 26 years. For the last 11 years Triathlon has been my main focus. I started like everybody else working my way up in distances and completed four Ironman’s before settling on Olympic and Sprint distances.  I have represented GB at Age Group level on multiple occasions.  I also had Hip Resurfacing surgery 4 years ago.  But have still managed to qualify and race for the GB Age Group team three times since then.

In November last year I switched to a Vegetarian diet for the long term health benefits. Whilst not taking any supplements for the change in diet I was already, and continue to, take Vitamin C and Magnesium tablets.  I was curious to see if a personalised supplement built specifically for my needs would be of any benefit.

The Nourished website was clear and conscience to use when gathering my personal information and requirements.  At the end told me the contents of my “stack”.

First Impressions of Nourished

The box then arrived shortly after with my 28 day supply. Each “Stack”, the daily supplement, was individually wrapped.  With plastic free packaging and a detailed description of the contents of the supplement, as described at checkout on the website.

First impression when taking? Tasted very sweet. Which is nicely strange as the product is 100% sugar free. I would liken them to a Fruit Jelly sweet and are actually very pleasant. I took mine after breakfast every day and have to admit actually looked forward to it. It seemed a little like a treat. But this is one area where I thought some guidance might be helpful, when to take. After breakfast was simply an assumption on my part.

When I started the trial I was beginning to ramp up my training for the Triathlon season. Mileage was remaining roughly the same but I was adding in much more intensity.  Especially on the Bike and Run. Within the first week I ran a Half Marathon and whilst I felt it was a little early to be feeling any benefits I did feel good generally.  I managed to run my fastest Half Marathon time since my hip surgery by over a minute.

Training Impacts

As I went in to the second, third and fourth weeks I continued to train at a high mileage and intensity. How did I feel? In terms of general energy levels I certainly felt good. Better than before? I would have to say yes. Which I found surprising. 

With just a few days left of the 28 day supply I took part in another race.  A 2 mile run-10 mile cycle-1 mile run Duathlon.  The first run was my fastest average speed since my hip surgery in Oct 2015.  Whilst not a big field I did win the 50-54 Age Group and all this was despite not resting before the race.   Also was at the end of my biggest, hardest week of training so far. There was other factors in the performance I am sure as I have lost 5kg in weight since being on the vegetarian diet.  Also been seeing a Run Analyst company to improve run form but none the less I felt fresh and very good general energy levels.

I Have now finished the 28 days supplement trial.

Summary of month trial

And this was nearly a week ago. How do I feel since finishing the supply? No different first of all but for the last couple of days I have been starting to feel the impact of my training and feeling more tired. There may be other factors in this, like simply the accumulation of training load after a period of time, stress, sleep etc. But what I will be doing is taking a further look at my supplement needs. Through trial and error and elimination seeing if I do need to take anything else than my original Vit C and Magnesium. If Nourished is a cost effective method of doing this than I may well subscribe.
