Three questions for you:
1. Would you be more likely to book your annual checkup… if your doctor was Ryan Gosling?
2. Would that time of the month be more bearable… if the government subsidized chocolate?
3. Would mornings be better… with a live-in Starbucks barista?
While we’re at it, here’s another one: Would you be more likely to take your daily vitamins…if they tasted like gummy candy?
The answer to all of the questions above… YES!
Taking vitamins has always been an issue for me. They’re big, chalky and have *the worst* aftertaste. For too many years I’d purchase bottle after bottle, trying in vain to supplement my less-than-stellar diet. Then, they’d sit in my cupboard. Until they expired. And sometimes, for a year or two after. Why? Because they’re big, chalky and have *the worst* aftertaste, of course.
(In fact, I recently stumbled upon an old box of multivitamins that expired in April 2009. Durr….)
I’m not alone. Most readers agree that they’d be more likely to stick with a vitamin or supplement regime if they didn’t have to swallow horse pills. Because when it comes down to it, the best multivitamin is the one you actually take.
Now you all know that I’m a fan of Adult Essentials Gummies. Earlier this year, they generously sent a supply of their gummy vitamins and supplements for me and my husband to enjoy. And I think “enjoy” is the key word here – great tasting, gummy vitamins in the most delicious fruit flavours? Twist my arm!
Of course, I haven’t been popping all of the products on a daily basis like candy – because despite appearances, they’re not. There is a very real danger in over-supplementing, especially if your diet is packed with vitamins and minerals. Hence, your first step is to speak with a nutritionist to help identify some of the gaps in your diet and how certain vitamins can help you meet your RDI. When you have, Adult Essentials are an easy, great tasting way to keep you at your optimal health and performance.
(For those wondering, my diet is kind of lame. Though I’m working on it!)
Here’s the good news: I have been taking my prescribed gummy vitamins EVERY day – without fail. It’s true; after years and years of taking the first two multivitamins in a bottle and chucking the rest, I’ve actually finished TWO entire bottles of the following gummy vitamins: Multivitamin, Vitamin D, Fibre Gummies and Omega-3. And, it’s not hard to see that the single motivating factor for me taking the vitamins is the great taste.
I can’t believe it! I’m sticking to a vitamin and supplement regime! And I’ve never felt better!
I rarely take the vitamins in the morning; rather, I wait until mid-afternoon when I’m craving something sweet. Yup, a handful of gummy vitamins satisfies my sweet tooth! And the difference is, the small intake of glucose syrup (what makes the gummies sweet like candy) is greatly offset by the nutritional advantages. Do your gummy bears offer a daily RDI of Vitamin D, Fibre and Omega-3? Didn’t think so.
Of course, just when I thought it couldn’t get better… Adult Essentials Multivitamins have a great NEW taste! Fruitier, gummier and bursting with great flavour, trust me, this is one vitamin you WILL take every day.
“Uniquely designed in a great tasting easy to chew pectin based gummy, these multi-vitamins are guaranteed dairy, gluten and nut free, with no artificial sweeteners, flavours or colours. Adult Essentials Gummies are 100% licensed and approved by Health Canada.”
So tell me, is it hard for you to stick to a vitamin regime? Have you tried Adult Essentials Gummies?
