I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Vitafusion. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and promotional item to thank me for participating.
As two working parents in their forties with three grade school-aged children, describing our daily lives as being a bit hectic would be an understatement. My husband and I don't take the best care of ourselves because there are just not enough hours in the day. The demand for our time and energy is high in our household, but the supply is very low. My husband skips breakfast almost everyday. I have been known to eat microwave popcorn for lunch now and then. We have tried taking multivitamins in the past, but we were never able to stick with it. Maybe it was because those horse pills didn't smell or taste pleasant. Maybe it was because we had to drink a whole glass of water with them (who has time for that?). Maybe it was because they did not agree with our digestive systems.
Bottom line . . . we needed a way to incorporate vitamins into our already busy routines that was not going to make our lives even more stressful. If you're in a similar situation, I suggest you try MultiVites PLUS gummy multivitamins by Vitafusion and here's why . . .
- Vitafusion MultiVites don't require water.
- I can pop two in my mouth after I finish my breakfast and continue on with my morning. All I need to do is chew and swallow.
- These vitamins taste like natural berry-flavored fruit snacks.
- There are a variety of formulas to meet our individual needs. (I'm taking the Hair, Skin & Nail Support and my husband is taking the Heart Support formula.)
- We've been taking these gummy vitamins for about 2 weeks and neither of us have experienced any digestive issues.
As previously mentioned, there are other varieties of MultiVites PLUS vitamins in addition to the ones my husband and I are taking, such as Digestive Support and Immune Support. When choosing the right formula for you, be sure to read the labels carefully, as each formula has significant differences. For example, my Hair, Skin & Nails Support offers at least 100% of the daily recommended amounts of essential vitamins, such as Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin B-6, and Vitamin B-12. My husband's Heart Support formula offers 50% of the recommended Vitamin A, C, and E, but offers 200% of Vitamin D, B-6, and B-12.
The Vitafusion MultiVites PLUS Heart Support is the perfect vitamin for my husband because he was diagnosed with high blood pressure last year. These gummy vitamins add extra Omega-3, Vitamin B-6 and B-12, Folic Acid, and Niacin to his diet. Did I mention that his gummies are heart-shaped?
My Vitafusion MultiVites PLUS Hair, Skin & Nails Support gives me extra Vitamin E to help my skin, plus Biotin and Lutein to help make my hair and nails be stronger. I may decide to switch to the Immune Support formula in the fall because I think my immune system needs an extra boost during cold and flu season.
These gummy vitamins are designed for adults only and are not meant to replace a healthy diet. Since we have only been using them for about two weeks, it's difficult to gauge the effects. I did notice that I'm losing slightly less hair in the shower. I am looking for a boost to my metabolism in the long-run, but mostly my husband and I both would like to just be healthier so we can continue to be there to meet the needs of our children everyday.
