As a Mom, I’m tired. I’m overly exhausted, lacking the nutritional needs of my water intake. We recycle in our home but the bottles and cans can add up so fast! Recyling in our neighborhood only picks up once a week which can leave us shorthanded on space in our bin at times. Imagine four humans in our home, even for one person with a bottle or can a day that is seven a week! We are working on ways to help our footprint as we downsize so we were super excited to partner with Moms Meet and Vitapod. I received the Vitapod for free from Moms Meet (momsmeet.com) to use and post my honest opinions. Compensation for this post was provided and this page may contain affiliate links.
You may be thinking, “Oh another machine in my home” or “If this uses pods how is it saving on plastic?” and I thought that too, until I set it up! The first thing I noticed was that Vitapod will encourage and help you to recycle the pods! The pods for the Vitapod machine already contain 90% less plastic than a single-use water bottle! Vitapod even sent a pre-paid envelope to mail them back my used pods! Anyone can do that!
The very first thing most of you are going to ask since we are a parenting community, what about the ingredients? 100% natural! Low sodium. Zero sugar. No artificial flavors or sweeteners. How is that for a clean drink! Please see below for information on a few of the flavors you may want to not provide your children due to caffiene!
The set up was super simple with the quick user manual. I had my Vitapod up and running in under 15 minutes, including a 10 minute intial filtration run. Watching the machine work was pure magic! I can’t wait to try all the flavors! Jason LOVES The Iced Tea Peach and I already fell in love with the Pineapple Coconut. Do you like Cotton Candy grapes? What about Cotton Candy water??? It’s possible now!
So, with my fertility issues and health concerns, my dietary needs are unique. I am reading labels non stop. I am happy to say that all the pod flavors are made of 100% natural ingedients! Each Vitapod formula was developed with a panel of doctors having over 100 years of combined experience. To top it off, most of the pods are fully safe for pregnancy or while breastfeeding (hydration is so important in these stages!)*
**Please know that The Iced Tea+ contaings (60mg), Sports+ (100mg) and Energy+ (200mg) are containing caffiene which should be used in moderation, even more so while pregnant or breastfeeding.
The Vitapod truly is a breeze to use! You can do a shot, a regular glass or fill your reusable bottle! Three sizes to fit your needs. You can also stop the water flow or continue it by pressing a button. How strong do you want your beverage?
Other than offering already 11 different Vitapod flavors (Can you say Cotton Candy?!?!) the multipass filtration system in the Vitapod does a purifying system that is better than market leaders! You can also chill your Vitapod beverage to the optimal temperature for hydration.
Did you know that 9 out of 10 Americans are under-nourished? Each Vitapod will contain up to 15 under-consumed vitamins and minerals without sacrificing flavor. Can your seltzer water or powder flavor packets do that? I was spending a lot of money on energy drinks with no calories, smoothies at $5-$9 a pop and flavor packets that were not only using plastic water bottles but also plastic containers or packets. I’ll give up on the space on my counter for the amount of time and money I am saving overall! I have serious hydration goals now!
As this machine is so new on the market I did find two things I would personally upgrade in a future version but it does not take away from the quality or product at all. The on/off toggle is currently on the back so the machine does not shut off on it’s own. As well, I am so accustomed to see my water line level on my coffee maker, it would be nice to see on the Vitapod as you have to fill the water in the back.
