Tesco Chewable Vitamin C
Advantages: tastes ok, quite cheap, helped me feel better
Disadvantages: not as good as eating an orange!
Not so long ago I was really under the weather, my daughter had chicken pox and I had a neverending cold which left me snivelling, headachey and coughing for ages. Whilst I stuck with the traditional method of giving my daughter fruit high in vitamin C (she loves them she was literally eating a bag of clementines/tangerines a day! costing me a fortune!) I opted for the slightly cheaper and lazier option for myself and bought some supplements from Tesco.
- Packaging -
The packaging has slightly updated to the one shown above, but it is pretty similar in that it is a white circular tub with an orange lid and label. I bought the tub of 30 tablets which each contain 200mg of Vitamin C. It has a brief description that they are to give immune and antioxidants support. It is simple to open, by unscrewing the lid and you can pop a tablet out. The lids are child proof so you have to squeeze and twist, but at the same time this is easy to open. This is good as it's the last thing I want my 3 year old to get her hands on and start eating as she will think they are sweets!
- Eating -
The tablets are really small and surprisingly enough they are not orange lol! They are an off white/cream colour but they do smell orangey. Eating them is easy, a few chews and a swallow and they're gone lol. They do have a strong artificial orange taste, but they are edible and easy enough to eat so I really can't complain. They are quite chewy, and not quite as chalky like tums but are of a slightly similar consistency as the easiest thing to compare them to lol. I have tried effervescent vitamin c capsules from Boots and they were awful so these are much better tasting and easier to consume!
- Results -
Well it's hard to attribute it just to taking these supplements but since taking these for the last 10 days or so, my cold has now (FINALLY!) subsided and I feel an awful lot healthier. I am trying to also eat a large clementine a day (Marks and Spencer specifically as their fruit range is fab) so as to keep up a natural vitamin c intake but where I forget or have none left I am eating these. I think they aren't bad to eat and they take a second or two so they are handy and helpful.
- Overall -
To sum up, these are handy and have helped me feel quite better. I bought a pack of 30 tablets at 200mg for £1.50 which isn't bad for essentially a months worth of vitamin c supplements. I am going to continue taking them until the pack finishes and hope they keep any more Christmas colds at bay so I can see in the New Year happy and healthy! These taste decent and seem have worked for me (albeit not instantly) so I would definitely recommend them.
