I'm in love with Berry Vega. I'm a lazy vegan and constantly on the road. It's hard to eat well in many part of the States. I find packing that packing this tub and a shaker is well worth the extra space it takes up in my luggage (the individual travel packets aren't cost effective to warrant the space saved). IHerb has the best price. Whole Foods wants half your paycheck for this product.
Since starting on Vega two months ago, my husband and I have experienced such significant health changes that I hardly have words to describe how much better we feel. My husband, a long distance runner, has had his recovery times greatly reduced and so much more energy and vibrance. I am in the process of losing 135 pounds, and I find when I replace a meal with Vega that I am full, satisfied, and vigorously refreshed instead of that washed-out feeling that sometimes comes from a reduced-calorie diet. I also use this product as a multi-vitamin pill everyday, as I have difficulty swallowing pills. I cannot say enough about this product--I have not felt this energetic and healthy in years. Definately worth every penny.

...but very disappointed. When I opened the container the berry smell was so strong and overpowering it took my breath away--are the aromas really natural? Regardless, I tried drinking this a few times and every time within half an hour it gave me a terrible headache and a bloated stomach :( Overall good blend of protein, vitamins, omegas, etc, but given the price tag and the side effects won't be buying this again.
Vega Sequel is #1 in complete nutrition

I love the Berry Flavor Of Vega protein powder. This product is tasty and pack full of all the nutrients you need for the day with the full 2 scoop serving. Not to mention it's a "clean product".

Never did I think I would ever have anything vegan. Never did I think all of the endless food cravings for sugar would stop. I now have energy, my asthma is markedly decreased and I no longer need antihistamines for all of the "seasonal allergies" that I had every month of the year. It has been a life changing surprise and realization of how poor my previous nutrional state was. That is the key word- was and opened my eyes to believe how very important the food we eat impacts our life. 5 stars are simply not enough.
