Bassetts Soft & Chewy Daily Energiser
Advantages: Taste nice
Disadvantages: Just don't work
Over the last several months - especially since starting my second year at university - I have noticed that I have become more tired and lethargic and my general daily routine has appeared to become more and more of a struggle rather than a natural process. Moreover, during the last two months in particular I have started to get severe headaches and I have found myself taking more and more naps throughout the day. Now, I couldn't go through a full day without taking a nap at some point, if I can't fit in a nap during the day I find myself feeling really ill and as a result I tend not to be able to get out of the bed the next day.
Obviously my first thought was to visit the doctors, after several blood tests the results came back as normal. On a positive note that means there was nothing seriously wrong but it did not help in my conquest to rid myself of my tiredness and headaches. Soon after I started on a self-remedy route, to start I would by vitamin drinks from marks and spencer's at the train station daily to give me a little boost, this would see me through the train journey home without falling to sleep but it did not offer a permanent solution.
I came across the basset's soft and chewy daily energiser whilst on a routine shop in asda. I had planned to buy some sort of vitamins and since I am rather a fan of the basset soft and chewy range I found these the perfect item to buy. The daily energisers can be bought for £3.48 a packet in asda, each packet containing 20 pastilles.
These daily energisers, as suggested by the manufacturer, are designed for busy or sluggish people who need a natural energy boost. They also state that they are to improve general health, the immune system, and metabolism and to generally increase energy levels. If you ask me, this is a lot of promise for one small pastille that looks tastes and feels like a jelly sweet.
When I first took one of these pastilles I was soon to notice that they are very similar to that of the children's orange bassets that my mum used to feed to me in replacement of the carrots and any other fruit and veg type that would accidently find its way into the dogs bowl! The pastilles have a very squishy feel and as mentioned above look very much like a jelly sweet. Upon tasting them, again the sweet came to mind. They have a very citrusy flavour, they do taste very fresh and sweet but they do have a very very faint chemically taste, but that's me just being fussy. Over all I don't find them a hindrance to have to take every day as they do actually taste rather nice.
Despite tasting rather nice these pastilles are not a miracle cure. They haven't cured my tiredness or my headaches, I do feel a little less sluggish but it is not at all what I would call a great improvement. To be honest I wasn't expecting these to be excellent, but the effect I get from these I could quite easily get from a cup of coffee. So as you can imagine, not amazing. Despite not doing much to help, I have continued to take these, I don't actually know why; perhaps I am thinking they will suddenly keep me awake all day, I somehow can't see it. I bought two packets from asda as they were on special offer but I won't be buying anymore once they run out. There are many other vitamins that I can try; perhaps they will do a better job.
Summary: Not the ultimate cure!
