Eating GEM

How do I eat GEM?

Enjoy one Daily Essentials Bite every morning for foundational nutrition, and eat your Sleep or Calm Bites as needed! We recommend enjoying a Calm Bite midday to help focus and de-stress, and a Sleep Bite right before you get ready for bed.

Where should I keep my GEM?

No refrigeration necessary! Some like to keep it on their nightstand, some like GEM in their kitchen cabinets, but overall, we recommend that GEM is stored in a cool, dry place!

How many GEM can I eat per day?

The recommended dose of GEM is one per day, but if your diet is out of whack, you need an extra pep in your step, or are craving another bite of GEM, there’s no harm in taking an extra one! However, eating more than 3 bites per day is not recommended

Do I need to eat GEM with food?

You don’t have to take GEM with food because it is food, but we suggest drinking a whole cup of water with your daily GEM because water is always a good compliment to anything food-related.

What does GEM taste like?

There are 3 flavors of GEM -- lemon, peppermint, and cacao. Each is flavored naturally with either lemon oil or peppermint oil, or cocoa powder and cacao chunks. There is a mild sweetness because of the date and coconut base, with a chewy, seedy text

Upset Stomach

We're sorry to hear you are experiencing stomach upset with GEM. With any new diet, product, or change, your body may experience a temporary acclimation period, with some GI discomfort or changes in your stool. This is very normal, and should subside

How long does GEM last?

GEM is completely shelf stable so it doesn't need to be refrigerated. It is best enjoyed within 6 months of production, which you will find printed on the bottom of your tin or sample/refill pack.
