Packaging with a purpose (and Essential's new pouch). BY: COMPLEMENT For most of us, the biggest consideration when making a purchase is quality. How and where is the product made? What materials or ingredients are used? Will it serve its intended purpose? But for the Complement team — sending out thousands of orders each month — what our products are packaged in has become just as much a part of the conversation. Minimizing plastic has always been a given... Although it's the cheapest material and standard in the supplement industry, plastics and microplastics are filling our landfills and oceans, and...
Are You Getting Enough Greens? (And How to Get More) BY: MATT FRAZIER, CO-FOUNDER I’m embarrassed, but I'll admit it: I don’t eat nearly enough greens. Do you? Once our calorie needs are met, greens are probably the single most important type of food in our diets — the one food we don't want to leave off our plates for long. How can I say greens are the healthiest food on the planet? Well, when you measure nutrients per calorie — the way they do with the ANDI score, a pretty good measure of "healthfulness," in my opinion — greens...
The Ultimate 15-Minute HIIT Bodyweight Workout for Full Body Strength BY: COMPLEMENT After turning 40, Complement's CMO Michael knew he wanted to improve his fitness. Only instead of relying on hours at the gym, he committed to short, 15-minute high-intensity workouts 3-4 times per week. This simple workout has lead him to be in the best shape of his life: The workout. 7 rounds of exercises, each round consisting of a 45-second workout and a 15-second rest. After the 7th round, recover for a full 1-minute rest. Repeat those same 7 exercises. Here's Michael's advice: The idea is to...
How Much Protein You Really Need (and Where to Get It) BY: COMPLEMENT Is your protein strategy just... "I eat a balanced diet, so I should be good?" That's the case for many plant-based eaters. We get so tired of answering the dreaded protein question that many of us have convinced ourselves that there's no way protein is a macronutrient of concern. But instead of just assuming we're good (and hoping for the best), let's take a look at what the science says around protein requirements for vegetarians and plant-based eaters. How much protein do you need? The answer...

Complement Works For Me
I think Complement is working for me. The vitamins in it along with a couple of other selections I have chosen to incorporate into my daily life appear to be working for me. I feel healthy and alive. I don't like the idea of needing doctors or hospitals so I am trying hard to do things to keep me healthy and taking Complement is one of my choices.
I have been using this product for over a year now and I love it. It is part of my daily routine. No aftertaste and as a vegan it covers some of the harder to get vitamins so I don’t have to think about getting them in my diet.
I feel so much more calm. These vitamins must have some essential vitamin that I was not getting before or was not aborbing enough of (as my previous multi was so where near this quality). I would say my experience probably is not typical, as I was likely suffering some sort of vitamin deficiency. However, I would highly recommend these, since I have been using them for eleven days and already notice a difference. Thank you!
The vitamins are a perfect blend. They work really well on my husband and me. After eating vegan for about a half year, we both started feeling tired all the time. Since we're taking these vitamins we are feeling much better. Customer service is excellent! They respond very quick and if there is a problem it will be taken care of immediately.
I was buying multiple supplements as a distance runner and smegan (sometimes vegan). I still felt worn out most days. I’ve been taking Complement along with a single joint supplement for a week and feel great. Even during this time of social distancing, I’ve been running, cooking, cleaning, training my dogs, laundry is always done - I haven’t felt this good in ages. I love the energy and clean ingredients. I also appreciate not having to take so many pills to get the same nutrients. I highly recommend this supplement!
My family and I have been taking Complement vitamins now for three months. As a mother of a busy teen and a business owners it’s hard to make sure we are getting everything we needs in the food we eat. These vitamins are a perfect “Complement” to our busy lives and crazy schedules.
Plus, now more than ever it’s so important to build a strong immune system and energy to get us through these hard times. Thank you for creating a vitamin to do just that!
Exactly what I need and nothing else. Complement tastes great in smoothies, or in a bowl of oatmeal. We haven't tried baking with it yet, but that's next on our list. I ran out early last month (I get it on a regular subscription) and I felt off for a few days. I could tell my body missed it.
Blends well, not chalky, no weird taste or aftertaste. As a frontline nurse practitioner in the COVID-19 pandemic, it can be hard to put my nutrition and hydration first. The PPE has to stay on which means no snacking. A quart of green smoothie with Complement protein before work and I can make it through the whole shift without stopping. Never intended it for this use but I’m now using it everyday instead of just heavy workout days. You can’t stop making this.
First off this is a great company with great values. I had a few issues with my first order. I emailed them and got a quick response! I was shipped out a new bottle right away and had the same issues...the capsules were leaking. I was told they were going through the process with a new manufacturer and if I could wait a few weeks they would ship me a new bottle once the issues have been fixed. Well that’s what they did and that bottle was perfect!! I will continue to buy these and will always recommend the vitamins and the company to everyone!
I was sceptical about this at first however after doing some nutritional research and trying the products for the past few months I am convinced this is one of the best protein powders out there. I like that there is no sugar added and the ingredients are clear. I also like that its a protein powder not made with pea protein which is common now but is not sustainable. Everything from the bag and product being sustainable to the quick shipping have me on a auto ship for this product. I highly recommend it!
When I first heard of this product I hesitated as Ihave tried so many. I was highly recommended so I took a chance and I really love it. I feel absolutely fine with it and most all over powders I didn't feel well after I drank it. So, I am a life subscriber to it and it's clean beautiful ingredients. Thank you so much!
I have been using Complement since learning about it on the Healthy Human Revolution podcast. I now use this as the sole supplement to my plant-based nutrition plan. Tastes great. Easy to use. I highly recommend.
I give this to my 2 little boys and we all love it! The spray bottle is so easy and convenient and it tastes great! I really like how transparent this company is with the ingredients and where they are sourced. I feel good giving this to my family.
