In this ActivatedYou Morning Complete review, we will take things to a whole new level of clarity. This one is all about getting to the real core of it.
And so, throughout this article, we will discuss quite a few things. We’ll start as I typically like to with claims and promises. That we will transition into exploring the ingredients and what they can do for us. Which then will be all about the inactive parts of the supplement. And lastly, we’ll also do look into the customer reviews and global success rates.
Frankly, This Morning Complete Looks Like Something I’d Love To Daily
According to the manufacturer, ActivatedYou Morning Complete is “perfect for anyone who wants to start each day on a healthy note, and enjoy optimized health, throughout their lives.” The way they put it, “this first-of-its-kind formula features a custom-selected blend of nutrients designed to support regular digestive function – an absolute essential for overall wellness.” Or to paraphrase that, it kind of sounds like the ideal thing for pretty much anyone’s morning [R].
As for the product page, I believe it’s very well structured, something with very high readability. Yes, it’s not the shortest of promotional pages out there, however, it’s something that I would, by no means, consider overwhelming or overbearing.
Speaking of overwhelming and overbearing, they do use quite a bit of marketing tools to help people get over the fence.
There’s, of course, the idea of “buy more, buy cheaper,” 90 days money-back guarantee, unnaturally great customer reviews, free shipping, and (best of all) they also offer an exclusive offer for first-time customers (if we share our email that is).
So, a ton more reasons to get it. But to add even more to that notion, there are quite many different potential benefits. Quite a few more actually than what we’ve seen with products like Natren Healthy Trinity Probiotic (review) or PB8 Probiotic (review).
I mean, per their words, it’s about improving microbiome, digestive health, overall health and wellness, energy levels, weight loss, peak performance, stress response and relieving it, and supporting healthy, high-functioning bodies as we age.
Frankly, it sounds like the perfect product to do in the mornings. At least on the paper. How good is it actually though?
Eight Blends And Very Solid As Far As The Primary Bits
With the Morning Complete of ActivatedYou it’s all about the blends. There’s a blend almost for everything, as they say. In total, eight different ones to appeal to our well-being and all of those promised gains. But will they truly?
So, per serving (one scoop), the supplement of this review offers 4.05 grams of Prebiotic and High Fiber Blend, 735 milligrams of Green Superfoods Blend, 390 milligrams of Metabolic Enhancing Blend, 100 milligrams of each Antioxidant Blend and Super Balancing Blend, 55 milligrams of Adaptogens, 30 milligrams of Cellular Function and Liver Support, and 10 billion CFU of Probiotic Blend.
And so, as regards to the core of the product, it’s pretty evident that it’s all mainly about Probiotics and Prebiotics. Those are the most abundant and most relevant bits. Whereas as for the rest, I’m not that sure whether there’s enough to properly go around. Still, it’s not like those additions can hurt. Certainly not [R].
If anything, I feel we’re looking at more potential gains. To that end, here’s to give a bit more insight into each of the blends.
The Prebiotic and High Fiber Blend is about 8-40 times more abundant than what we get in a typical Probiotic-Prebiotic supplement, like Schiff Digestive Advantage Probiotics (full review) or Nutrition Essentials Probiotic (full review).
So, in that regard, this definitely is the superior option.
Other than that, the contents here can bring gains to detoxification, weight loss, digestive health, as well as few others. And that’s even more the case if we also consider the Green Superfoods Blend and Metabolic Enhancing Blend. Which can also potentially bring a variety of different positives through either of their constituents. I mean, they hold a lot of more than capable ones [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
Then Antioxidant Blend does exactly that: provides antioxidants, as well as contributes to all of what that entails, like anti-aging, better immune function, improved detoxification, etc. Whereas the Super Balancing Blend seems to me to be for managing and improving blood sugar, blood pressure, triglyceride, and cholesterol levels, as well as promoting immune function and anti-inflammation [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
Then, Adaptogens may contribute to easing stress and depression, battling fatigue, improving brain function, boosting the immune system and heart health, as well as promoting anti-aging and have other potential gains. And do not forget, to an extent, improved cellular function and liver health through Organic Aloe Vera leaf and Milk Thistle Seed extract. Both pretty straight forward, both adding to what the most previous ingredients in one way or another also contribute to [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
And then, of course, 10 billion CFU of nine different, capable Probiotic strains. Which is a very decent total amount and a solid number of different strains as well. The best practices stipulate that this must be the typical half of what we should preferably get daily. So, it covers the morning routine; we should get another scoop in the evening. Ideally [R, R, R, R, R, R].
So, all is great. But this is about the truth. Therefore, there is, however, one aspect I’m not so fond of.
Not all Probiotic strains survive the stomach acid well. And thus, preferably they should be delivered in capsules or tablets that can ensure the journey through that. But here we have it as a powder. Hence, nothing to protect them from the effects of stomach acid. And therefore, while many of the strains used here have shown to survive the journey through stomach acid decently well, the gains are still likely unnecessarily diminished [R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
And, frankly, since we don’t get introduced to exactly how much of each strain there is in the ActivatedYou Morning Complete, it’s impossible to tell. The ultimate usefulness may be (and probably is) below what typically 10 billion CFU would empower us with. So, it’s not exactly ideal, the way I see it.
To Review Additives, Does It Feel Like GMOs Are A Part Of It For You?
Additives within any supplement are kind of the “glue” that helps to keep all of the beneficial stuff together. Whereas if we have powders, typically there is no reason for such “glue” within it like we’ve seen with supplements like Orgain Collagen Peptides (full review) and Ancient Nutrition Keto Collagen (full review). However, this ActivatedYou Morning Complete is not one of those kinds of supplements.
Indeed, despite it being a powder that is advised to use by mixing in with our drink or food, it still uses other ingredients to kind of round it all off.
So, we have Natural Flavors, Guar Gum, Citric Acid, Rice Hull Concentrate, and Monk Fruit extract.
Natural Flavors are highly dependant on the manufacturing quality. In that regard, I don’t think the ActivatedYou Morning Complete will disappoint. They do third-party testing on end-products. Which is the highest standard for quality the way I see it. So, something really awesome about this ActivatedYou [R, R, R, R, R].
As for Guar Gum and Rice Hull Concentrate, they are harmless. Monk Fruit is a quality sweetener that’s actually beneficial. Whereas Citric Acid while is a natural substance, it can be detrimental if overconsumed (a lot of processed foods use it), consumed together with Aluminium (spoons, containers, etc.), or if it is GMO [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
The very last of which, sadly, we can’t control and it might potentially be the case here. On one hand, it’s quite quick to state that it does not contain Artificial Sweeteners but then, forgets about GMOs, Dairy, or Gluten. Then, on the other, it doesn’t seem to be particularly meticulous about its free-of claims. And so, my guess is as good as any.
What do you think? Does it have GMOs in there? Let me know in the comments.
No Unbiased Customer Reviews & Impossible To Success Rate, Or?
If we take a look at the product page of this Activated You product, it’s such a typical look as far as customer reviews. Of course, the feedback is overwhelmingly positive there. Even too positive. I mean, I went through every single one of those 489 ActivatedYou Morning Complete reviews they had, not a single 1-star, 2-star, 3-star rating. It’s mostly all 5-star with an occasional 4-star.
Which is far too great of feedback to be the truth. I mean, it reminds me of something like the Skinny Fit Super Youth (review) or the Code Age Multi Collagen (review) where it’s likely they edit them. They edit them to fit better with their marketing and selling efforts. Which is fine but it’s useless if we’re after the truth.
Hence, I did some researching. I intended to basically find everything that I could from all other sellers and retailers.
But to my surprise, there wasn’t a single review to be found. There’s a complete and utter void. I mean, it seems that the product is not sold anywhere else, not even Amazon or eBay. We can only get it from the official website. Which I feel is really no good for assessing the customer feedback objectively.
So, it’s really a mystery. As far as I can tell, there is no reliable way of telling how beneficial the ActivatedYou Morning Complete has been for people and what the global success rate might actually be.
On that note, from a purely marketing perspective, this seems like a good tactic – to be the only ones selling it. And hence, to be able to control 100% of the discussion on it. However, at least in my mind, it does raise a bit of suspicion. And it even kind of doesn’t make any sense.
I mean, why would they not sell the product everywhere they possibly can if it’s really that good? Who knows.
On that note, with the latest look at the reviews, there actually have been a few on Amazon (50 at the time of this update). In terms of likely success rate, it’s about 60/40%. Meaning, just 60% of good reviews which would be terrible if it were to stick. But I don’t think it’s accurate at all.
I mean, we got people complaining about it not being full to the lid. Which is a trash reason to give a bad review because it’s 30 servings regardless.
Then, we got people not liking the taste but that’s a terribly subjective thing. Plus, again, something I don’t believe a product deserves a bad rating for. And, yeah, there’s also potentially bad storing conditions to fault here or fakes issue.
Point being, kind of not worth looking at the reviews at all. Plus, it’s not like they’re ever an accurate representation of the quality of the supplement. What I consider to not be good supplements constantly get great reviews and vice-versa. It’s just a statistic which in this case is still kind of too early for (not enough reviews).
This Activated You Feels Okay To Shortlist, Price Is The Flaw
Generally speaking, the ActivatedYou Morning Complete looks really good. It offers a very decent variety of blends, decent amounts of Prebiotics and Probiotics, a ton of potential benefits, and probably more likely than not a good choice of additives. But its biggest strength must be the third-party testing.
Which is awesome. But then, there’s the price tag. Which I believe is Morning Complete’s biggest flaw. Still, it’s the proper quality we get for that. And, frankly, price is a rather subjective term. It’s quality and that third-party testing we pay for.
Furthermore, I strongly feel it’s always better to rather pick expensive but quality instead of cheap but none.
So, overall, (out of avoid it, consider it, shortlist it, buy it) I would probably say it’s worth shortlisting.
Still, personally, I would pick something like the Amazing Grass Green Superfood Antioxidant over this every day of the week. It’s just something I consider to be a good deal better, and it’s 54% cheaper as far as superfoods (and some extra blends).
Whereas for Probiotics and Prebiotics, I would prefer the 1MD Complete Probiotics Platinum (full review).
Above all, I hope this ActivatedYou Morning Complete review helped you find the information you were looking for. How do you feel about this one? Do you agree? What was your favorite aspect about it? Let me know down below.
