SAN Nutrition Corp is a US supplements company based in California. Established in 1996 San Nutrition provides a wide range of supplements to do with weight loss, building muscle mass, anti aging, and more. All supplements are manufactured in the USA and conform to GMP standards. SAN Nutrition sell supplements direct from the official website, but they are also available from other retailers as well as Amazon. SAN Nutrition is sometimes referred to as S.A.N. (for no reason at all) by other retailers.
SAN Dr Feel Good is billed as a vitamin and mineral supplement with additional feel good ingredients, but with so many different components and the high levels of the vitamins and minerals, it is highly possible that some customers will experience side effects. The most common of these is unpleasant gas which many customers have mentioned, and although not exactly serious, it has been enough to make people stop using the supplement. More worryingly the company also warns against the risk of liver damage. If you do buy this supplement you will need to be careful and stop in the case of adverse effects, and you also need to be aware that the daily serving is a whopping 8 tablets a day.
Potential side effects may include; liver damage, gas, laxative effect, abdominal cramps and bloating, diarrhoea, loss of appetite allergic reaction, sleepiness, increased bowel movements, nausea and fatigue, skin rash, itchiness, flushing, or burning sensation on skin.
SAN Dr Feel Good is not overly expensive. Buy from the official SAN website and you get a choice of options.
You can try a taster pack of just 3 servings (24 tablets) for $5.25.
A bottle of 14 servings (112 tablets) costs $27.99.
28 servings (224 tablets) cost $49.95.
Shipping costs are not provided by presumably calculated at the point of sale.
The supplement is also on sale from independent retailers. You can find it on Amazon USA where a bottle of 112 tablets costs between $26.59 and $56.62 depending on seller.
We have also seen SAN Dr Feel Good on sale in the UK. We found it on sale from a sports supplements company called Dolphin Nutrition for £16.95 for 112 tablets.
SAN Dr Feel Good may work for some people. It contains high levels of vitamins and minerals plus additional herbal ingredients, so although effects may be unpredictable, you may notice something! Whether this is increased energy and vitality, or a skin rash or unpleasant gas, will largely depend upon your own physical make up.
We would not advise you to stay on this supplement for longer than a month, because it is unknown whether or not it is safe long term. In addition you should certainly stop taking it if you experience side effects, and we have concerns that the product information warns against potential liver damage.
Finally, taking 8 tablets a day is a lot! Many people will struggle with this, but on the plus side you could try reducing your daily serving to 4 a day, thus keeping the serving size safer and making your bottle last longer. You never know. It might help reduce the risk of gas, although we certainly cannot guarantee it!
Overall, we do not recommend SAN Dr Feel Good to our readers.

SAN Dr Feel Good is a vitamin and mineral supplement, that comes with added herbal ingredients designed to help boost cognitive function and improve mood. It also contains an additional formula described as a free radical scavenging and liver tonic complex, so looks as if it should improve overall health. According to the advertising, this supplement is aimed at athletes and people who are active and wish to achieve and maintain peak mental and physical performance.
Each serving is equal to 8 tablets, so you are going to have to like taking tablets in order to for this to work. Surprisingly, it is not explained whether you take these in one dose or spread out throughout the day.
The vitamins and minerals are in high quantities. Helpfully the product label provides the quantities, and the recommended daily intake and how this supplement conforms to this figure. For example, some ingredients such as vitamin B12 is equal to 600%, so is more than 5 times the usual dietary intake.
You might think that more is always good when it comes to vitamins but in some cases this can cause side effects. For example, the vitamin B3 content is set at 100% of the daily quantity, so you may find that this may cause you to experience redness and itchiness considering that you will probably be ingesting more through diet (it is present in foods such as chicken, peas and tuna). All of this will depend upon your own personal tolerance and diet.
Directions are not provided but you are advised to take 8 tablets a day.
Away from the vitamins, SAN Dr Feel Good contains two formulas. There is The Free Radical Scavenging and Liver Tonic Complex which contains Green Tea Extract – high in antioxidants and Milk Thistle extract which is sometimes taken for liver problems although is not currently approved by doctors.
There is also the Brain Cognitive and Feel Good Complex, which contains a combination of adaptogenic ingredients such as Rhodiola rosea (an Adaptogen is a substance that generally causes feelings of wellbeing), Cordyceps Sinsensis – a mushroom extract supposed to boost stamina, and Bacopa Monnieri extract believed to have a cognitive boosting function.

“Sharpen Your Edge with the Feel-Good Multivitamin/Mineral for Athletes & Active People”
It is an “ideal high-potency multivitamin-mineral complex that happens to be combined with nutrients that support positive mood and an overall feeling of well-being. Plus, Dr. Feel Good supports optimal brain function, memory, and learning.”
According to the product advertising SAN Dr Feel Good will convey five key benefits;
Along with the complete range of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, you also get the benefits of N-Acetyl Tyrosine, Cordyceps Sinsensis Extract, DMAE, Gotu Kola Extract, DMG HCL, Bacopa Monnieri Extract, Rhodiola Rosea Extract, Schizandra Extract, and Ginkgo Biloba Extract to help you consistently perform at the top of your game. More importantly, these ingredients are in optimal dosages and supported by extensive research.
All this sounds good, but the details of this extensive research are not provided.
Vitamin and mineral supplements can be good for general health, but we have concerns that the high quantities may cause adverse reactions, and in our opinion this supplement may be simply too strong for some people. It is always preferably to obtain nutrition from your daily diet, and to use a vitamin/mineral supplement simply as a support.
The other ingredients are all based on herbal extracts, and there are a lot of these. Research is undergoing on the various components, but we can find no record that this formula has ever been tested. It is impossible to know whether the individual ingredients will be effective or whether they will work in combination. Much of the research into efficacy and safety is in early stages. If you do decide to try this supplement, we advise that you start cautiously and build up to the recommended 8 tablet serving.
Serving size is equal to 8 tablets. Quantities provided here reflect serving size and not the contents of each tablet.
SAN Dr Feel Good may cause side effects. The product information warns that,
“Temporary flushing & itching of the skin may occur. Liver function testing is recommended when niacin (vitamin B3) is taken in excess of 500 mg daily. Those with gout or liver diseases should avoid taking high doses of niacin.”
Some customers have complained that taking this supplement causes foul smelling gas. This is probably caused by the Milk Thistle content.

Some customers have noticed improvements,
My hair and my eyes began to shine. Nails are no longer broken. My skin is supple and soft. Great vitamins.
This stuff is wonderful. Noticeable improvement of mood. Keeps me upbeat and positive.
Others are less positive,
What a crock! Tried this out based on reviews. Did NOTHING special. Don’t waste your money.
Some customers have mentioned gas!
Eh…didn’t feel any different. Also, smells pretty bad.
This customer also complained about the size of the tablets as well as the gas, although she felt that it worked.
The pills are a bit large and the gas is a little unbearable for others! Otherwise I’d definitely recommend this product to anyone wanting to boost their focus and moods for the better 🙂
