Never a big fan of vitamin pills, I completely eliminated pill form supplements from my repetoire following a bad experience with those finger size pre-natal vitamins. I tired to monitor my diet to keep it nutrient rich, and whenever I could find powder supplements, like Emergen-C, I would work it in somewhere, but even the powders can taste chalky and be messy. (Although the Emergen-C powders are pretty tasty, especially the rasberry and strawberry flavor versions.)
Recently at Whole Foods I came across an adult version of gummy-vites. I have always given my children gummy vitamins, but for some crazy reason never considered trying them myself. I bought a bottle of the B-Complex Adult Gummy Vitamins by Nutrition Now and guess what! They taste great! The next day I went back and bought the One-A-Day Vita Craves Gummies, a complete adult multivitamin. They come in traditional fruit flavors, as well as the sour version (akin to Sour Patch Kid candy) and taste remarkably like healthy Gummy Bears. I’ve been happily taking my gummy vitamin supplements for over a week now and I feel so much better. More energetic, clearer…I feel like I even look healthier!
So if you have an aversion to those smelly, gag-inducing vitamin pill supplements, try the gummy version. I bet after one week you’ll notice a difference in the way you feel.
