      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A great, cheap multivitamin.

      I like taking a lot of different vitamins and minerals, not only because I want to give myself the healthiest lifestyle that I can when it comes to nutrition and exercise but also because it puts my mind at ease a fair deal. I know it sounds strange because obviously Tesco daily multivitamins aren't top of the range but to me they get the job done and I think that's enough. Another reason that I take them is that I'm prone to getting the cold and I was advised to take a multivitamin and it definitely helps. Before now I hadn't taken many other multivitamins, only vitamin c supplements, so I don't really have much to compare it to but I hope this review will be helpful all the same.

      I saw these while I was doing the shopping with my family in Tesco and for 39p per bottle it was safe to say that I was sold - and so were the tablets. In each bottle there are 30 pills which if I'm doing the math right should last you about a month if you take one per day which you're supposed to. They come in a small plastic bottle with a child proof lid, something that unfortunately troubles me frequently.

      On the front it is written that they are for 'everyday health and vitality' which though seemingly could mean nothing, is somewhat encouraging to me. On the back there is various information including the % RDA (recommended daily allowance) that I could go into great detail about but from my research I can pretty much assure you that it is just about the same as any other multivitamin. For more information you could look on the website or, fantastically, buy the product yourself. The tablets are also suitable for vegetarians and free of salt, sugar, fish and wheat - not that many would expect these things to be in it anyway.

      The one thing that did please me greatly about this multivitamin was its incredible easiness to swallow which is usually a problem for me. It is recommended that you take one of these pills with a meal but I usually don't, only really taking them with a sip of water.

      The tablets contain: Vitamin A, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin B6, Folic Acid and Vitamin B12.

      I can't say that these multivitamins are anything special because I have nothing to compare them to but they have done as well as could be expected and for the price that they are I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for an extra boost.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      They're okay

      I saw these 'Tesco Everyday Value' multi vitamins in Tesco for only 39p for 30 one a day tablets, even cheaper when bought as their 3 for 2 offer. Quite a saving compared to the next price up however these aren't plus iron so seeing my mistake I had to buy separate iron tablets- there went my saving but never mind....

      The tablets come in a small plastic bottle with a blue child proof lid. The label is white with relevant items pictured. The label has all you need to know but their website is more extensive. These are free from: Milk, wheat, egg and fish. They do come with some warnings about taking with other medications and them containing vitamin A are not to be taken while pregnant.

      Each small easy to swallow tablet contains 11 essential vitamins for 'Everyday Health and Vitality' Tesco own brand contain more at 13. Looking on their website I see there is a difference in some amounts of individual vitamins and therefore some RDA's are different. For example Value have just 40% vitamin B12 whereas Tesco Own has 100%, vitamin B6 in Value has 143% RDA compared to Tesco Own's 100%.

      How do they compare?

      I think they are okay; to be honest I can't tell the difference, any brand feels the same to me. I do feel better for taking these things because my diet is rubbish, placebo or not. I can tell they don't contain iron as I do feel less energetic but an extra iron tablet helps with that. The tablets are small rounds making them easy to swallow. There's no after taste and they don't repeat on me.

      I don't think I'd buy them again though purely because of the confusing RDA's I'd rather have vitamins that contain 100% of everything rather than 40% of this 75% of that and 143% of this. Plus the dearer tablets have a couple of extra vitamins; I don't know whether I'd miss them mind you........ If you can't have these two for any reason then that would be a good thing.

      So all in all they're good for the price, seem to be the same as other vitamins I've taken, are easy to swallow and don't repeat on me.

      3 stars from me because of some of RDA's are less or more than 100% and are therefore a bit confusing.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      cheap multivitamins normally selling for 40p for 30

      I am a very poor eater partly due to stress and an ongoing (as yet undiagnosed) bowel disorder so to me taking a multi vitamin tablet is essential. In the past I have paid quite a lot thinking that the more you pay the better the quality? However I found these Everyday Value ones on offer at 3 for 2 and feel that they are just as good as any of the more expensive ones.

      Normally they cost 40p for 30 tablets which is a great price and they come in a sturdy container as shown in the picture. It tells me on the front that they are 'for everyday health and vitality' and advised to take 1 per day.On the reverse of the label there is a table format which lists all the vitamins etc and the % of RDA (recommended daily allowance) which is good to know however the print is very small which could be a problem for some people who need to know exactly what they are taking.

      I am also told that these tablets are suitable of vegetarians and they are free from sugar, wheat, fish and salt. There is a good deal of further information on the label but to be honest I cannot read it properly even with my reading glasses but is a list of ingredients which contain some familiar ones such as calcium but also a great number of pharmaceutical names I have never heard of hence meaning nothing to me.

      Each tablet is beige in colour and have a slight shine to them which makes them easy to swallow. They are about the size of normal everyday tablets and are a little deeper than I would have expected and do not taste of anything as far as I am concerned. They are contained in a sturdy plastic pot which has a thick plastic top which is easy to remove/replace and on first opening you will find a peel off silver plastic seal meaning they are 'fresh'.

      Do they work? Well I cannot really say for sure but I have been cold/flu-free so far, my skin, nails and hair seem healthy enough and apparently these areas are the first to show diet deficiencies? I have certainly had no bad effects from taking these vitamins so I will continue to buy them for this price from Tesco because they appear such good value.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        I would buy them again.

        I like to take a Multivitamin tablet each day, especially during the winter months when I feel that I am particularly susceptible to bugs and cold viruses as a result of my poor health. I had been taking an 'unbranded' multivitamin that I purchased from a local pharmacy, but I mislaid these a while back and switched to the bottle of multivitamins that I had in the medicine cabinet at home, namely the Tesco Everyday Value Multivitamins. This review discusses my experiences of trying these out.

        These Vitamins from Tesco are from the 'Everyday Value' range, and so are very cheaply-priced. The current price for the bottle is only around 40 pence which is excellent value considering the bottle contains a month's supply of 30 tablets.

        The packaging is fairly basic, but to be fair this could also be said of most other brands of multivitamins that I've bought before. The bottle of Tesco Everyday Value Vitamins is made of sturdy plastic that is white in colour, and there are several small images appearing at the bottom of the bottle in a bright blue colour. The plastic, screw-off lid is coloured in the same blue shade. True, there is a slightly 'masculine' look to the bottle, but this is neither here nor there as far as I am concerned.

        The lid is made of very hard plastic and incorporates a sort of 'child safety' mechanism, so that the lid's sides need to be squeezed to open the bottle. I will admit that this is difficult for me to do by myself, so I tend to leave the lid loosened on top of the bottle. I do feel that this difficulty is down to the fact I have mobility problems that affect the strength in my hands, and other consumers may well find no such issues with opening the bottle. Underneath the bottle's lid is a foil 'seal' that simply needs to be burst to reveal the tablets inside the bottle. I did like this addition to the packaging as I knew the bottle's contents were completely hygienic before use.

        The tablets themselves are round in shape, which I do prefer compared to the previous few brands that I have bought, that were all oblong-shaped and subsequently felt quite large when swallowing. The Tesco Everyday Value tablets are much smaller, being around the size of your average shirt button, and being a sort of beige colour. They aren't particularly 'chalky' in their texture, and I've never been aware of any chalk-like residue coming off on my fingers when one of the tablets has been handled. Likewise, I don't recall ever being aware of this lurking in my mouth as the tablet is being swallowed.

        I do find that the Everyday Value Multivitamins are very easy to swallow, which I usually do with a small mouthful of water. I've found that they leave behind no annoying aftertaste, which is most certainly not always the case with multivitamin tablets; I've found many of them leave an unpleasant 'bitterness' lurking on the palate which is hardly ideal. The Everyday Value Multivitamins have a completely smooth surface which I feel contributes to them being extremely easy to swallow, and in actual fact my tablet-phobic husband has managed to take these with very little incident; he's ridiculous when it comes to consuming medications, unless they are miniscule, but he's happily taken these each morning without comment or incident.

        The plastic bottle claims the Multivitamins are: "For everyday health and vitality." Personally, I'm only bothered about the health aspect of this claim, as I feel my vitality got up and left me long ago! For me personally, I am usually only concerned with the Vitamin C content in a Multivitamin tablet, and in this instance this is 60.0 mg which is on a par with my previous Multivitamins.

        For the benefit of other consumers, it may prove helpful to know that these tablets also contain:
        Vitamin A, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin B6, Folic Acid and Vitamin B12. You can find a full list of the tablets' ingredients at www.tesco.com.

        The dosage instructions are one tablet per day, preferably with a meal. The tablets are not suitable for children or pregnant women.

        I can't say for certain whether these particular Multivitamin tablets are any better than other brands that I've purchased before, but what I CAN say is that I feel no less 'protected' in terms of my general health and well-being than when these tablets have been taken, compared to other brands. Certainly, I feel that my immune system and general health does benefit from the addition of a Multivitamin tablet in my daily routine, and the Tesco Everyday Value version have fit the bill in this regard. Considering the low price of the item, I do feel that they offer a cheap-and-cheerful alternative to many other brands of vitamin tablet that are available, making this sort of purchase much more affordable for many people which can only be a good thing, in my opinion.

        In summary, I do really recommend the Tesco Everyday Value Multivitamins and found that they were easy to swallow, leaving no unpleasant aftertaste or residue behind. Their 'fuss free' approach allowed them to slot into my everyday routine quite nicely whilst being kind to my purse-strings. Based on these results, I have nothing negative to report, and feel that the product is deserving of full marks in the product rating score.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          The Everyday Value range of vitamins is just that a good tablet that helps keep the colds away.

          I have never been sure if taking multivitamins actually do anything - until after a run of colds and coughs last year started to take a multivitamin tablet each day and paid way more than Tesco's are asking for their Everyday Brand. To my surprise I have not suffered a cold or cough for some 16 months - so I am now sure that extra vitamins taken do help fight off the viruis!

          Anyway back to the Everyday Multivitamins from Tesco. Having been paying between £1 and £2 for the expensive multivitamins I was pleased to see these from Tesco at under 50p.

          They come well packed, with a easy to open and reseal screw top lid. This keeps the tablets air tight and fresh. There are 30 tablets in each bottle, enough for a month. The tablets are also easy to take with water, they have no taste, and maybe are a little smaller than the more expsensive ones. I take the tablets right after Breakfast - and there are no side affects. The bottle states that each tablet contains 23 vitamins - there is a good list on the label, which is clear to read.

          Having taken these Everyday Value Multivitamins now for 6 months - I still have not had a cold...so I cannot see why there is a need to buy the more expensive tablets.

          Very impressed.

          vitamin and mineral supplement from Tesco

          Let me begin this review by saying that I am not convinced of the need to take vitamin supplements if you are eating a healthy diet. However I have just returned from a trip to Australia that involved several long haul flights. Being in a sealed aircraft means that there is a high risk of catching infections from other passengers. I always seem to end up with a cold or sore throat after flying so this year I thought I would give my body a boost of vitamins in the hope it would help to keep the bugs at bay!

          I am not convinced that paying a premium for branded products is always the way to go. With this in mind I decided to buy a tub of Tesco multi vitamins and minerals at just £1.70 for 30 tablets; much cheaper than other branded versions. The information on the label tells me that each tablet contains 23 essential vitamins and minerals. Although Tesco have recently improved the packing of all their value range products; the blue plastic tub is nothing special to look at. It is, however, functional with a screw top lid that is easy enough to open.

          The tub contains 30 tablets and you are advised to take one every day. The tablets are very small and so easy to swallow. I take a tablet every morning with my breakfast as I find having a set time to take the tablet makes me less likely to forget. The list of vitamins and minerals contained in each little tablet is impressive. I do not intend to list them all as the information can be found of the Tesco web site. However each tablet will give you 100% of your vitamin A,D.B1,B2,B6 and folic acid requirements. I have a friend who follows a strict vegan diet and she needs to take a daily Vitamin B12 supplement. The tablets only contain 40% of vitamin B12 so to get the optimum amount you may need a different supplement. The tablets will also provide you with 100% of your daily iron needs and a good percentage of many essential minerals such as manganese and phosphorus.

          However good the manufacturer's claims are, the proof of the effectiveness of any health product has to be whether it actually improves your health. I started taking the vitamin supplement a few weeks prior to flying. I still ended up with a cold on my return to the Uk! I really can't say that I have noticed any difference in the way I feel and am still really not convinced that the supplement has made any real difference to my health. However if you are ill or have a restricted diet then maybe you would notice a difference. I also believe that it would take a blood test to check for specific vitamin and mineral deficiencies as many of those included are probably not needed.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Great value.

            I'm sure that most people don't actually need to take a multi-vitamin, at least, not if they're eating a healthy diet. I do eat a (mostly) healthy diet, but money is tight so the quality of my food isn't always that good, and I am most certainly not 'most people'. I train hard: around 15 hours a week. Bearing in mind that I work full time as well, this is putting extra strain on my body. In order to keep it in the best possible condition, I therefore take a multivitamin (among other things) so that I can be sure I'm not lacking in anything vital.

            I used to buy expensive branded multivitamins, but one day when I was in Tesco and trying to do my shopping on a ludicrously small budget I spotted the Everyday Value Multivitamins. I was sceptical of course, but on closer inspection they contain the exact same vitamins as the more expensive brands, and you get at least 100% RDA of most of them too. Why on earth would anyone pay more? It's not like you actually need over 700% RDA of Vitamin B12 (as contained in the Centrum Performance that I still have in my cupboard).

            As well as containing all of the vitamins you'd expect to find, they also notably do NOT contain sugar, wheat, yeast, fish, milk, egg or salt, making them suitable for allergy sufferers like myself as well as vegetarians.

            At a cost of just 39p for a 30-day supply I can see absolutely no reason to buy any other brand of multivitamin ever again!

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              Only 39p! Bargain!!!!!

              Introduction:

              I do like to look after myself and always feel I should be taking some sort of vitamin. Although its hard to tell if any supplements are helping, I feel your better safe than sorry! I used to buy my vitamins from holland and barret, untill I noticed that they were much cheaper at supermarkets, these tesco multivitamins are the cheapest I have ever seen. I will now go into more detail and explain my opinions of this product.

              Price:

              The 39p price which tesco ask for this product is very cheap! It works out as just over 1p per tablet. You are told to take one tablet a day, so one of these pots should last you a month. Other products on the market can cost 4 or 5 times more than this product does.

              Any good?:

              I have been taking these multi vitamins for 2 months now. The size of them is small which makes them very easy to swallow with water. The packaging of the product follows the new tesco everyday value style which is pleasent to look at and much better than the previous branding.

              I have not felt much improvement in my health and I have no idea If I am benefiting from taking the tablets. I haven't been ill since taking these, so maybe they are keeping me healthy!

              Would I recommend?:

              I would definately recommend that you buy some of these, they are very cheap and that will save you money compared to buying expensive ones from health food shops. I would recommend these for kids and adults, they are worth taking to help with a balanced diet. It gives me peace of mind that I am getting the correct vitamins in my daily diet.

              Overall:

              I am happy with this product, you cannot fault it due to the very cheap price. I will be buying again in the future. To me this product is worth 4 stars. Thanks for reading my review, I hope it helped you out. Jlaker1992

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              I have been using these Everyday Value range for ages now and wouldn't go back to the expensive typ

              Taking a multi vitamin tablet is something I do every day, just as a matter of course, without really thinking about it. I have taken various types over the years though I now take the Everyday Value Range ones from Tesco. These are only available from Tesco, though occasionally I also take Sainsbury's own range but I think Tesco's are easier to swallow somehow. They both contain the same ingredients and Tesco's are slightly cheaper anyhow.

              The ingredients are:
              Calcium Carbonate,Vitamin C ,Cellulose ,Maltodextrin ,Niacin ,Vitamin E ,Hydroxypropylmethylcellulose ,Pantothenic Acid ,Modified Maize Starch ,Acacia ,Silicon Dioxide ,Maize Starch ,Vitamin B6 ,Thiamin ,Colours (Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxides) ,Riboflavin ,Magnesium Stearate ,Stearic Acid ,Vitamin A ,Talc ,Mannitol ,Sucrose ,Folic Acid ,Antioxidant (Tocopherol) ,Triglycerides ,Vitamin D ,Vitamin B12.

              As there is only me in the flat, I buy the smaller pots and 30 tablets last me a month and only cost 39p. Bargain at this price and it also means I don't have to worry that if I have missed a meal or have not eaten properly, which I do a lot of the time, that I am still getting my vitamins. They are small tablets and smooth so the glide down the throat without half choking me to death in the process.
              They are in a childproof plastic pot with a twist off lid and I keep mine in the kitchen cupboard where I keep my bread so that when I make my toast every morning I remember to take them as the pot stares me in the face. Occasionally I forget to take one but I don't get many colds or illnesses so I suppose they are doing me some good in the long run.

              To me there is little point in paying out a fortune for more expensive types as I used to get when these do a perfectly good job.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                one of these to keep yourself healthy at 39p a tub is a bargain!

                I shop in my local Tesco store very rarely as I only buy my razors and hairspray there. Whilst doing my last shop there I noticed these multivitamins for 39p. I usually pay between £1 and £2 for the multivitamins I usually buy for 20 tablets. This tub contained 30 tablets so I snapped them up straightaway.

                I wasn't expecting anything fantastic for 39p and I don't particularly feel any different when I usually take them I just have one a day so that I think I'm looking after myself and keeping as healthy as possible.

                The tub is plain white with blue writing like all of the tesco everyday value range. It has a screw top which is easy to unfasten and keeps the tub air tight. You need to take one a day and preferably with a meal which is the only way I remember to take them.

                The vitamins have the following ingrediants which are wrote on the back of the tub:
                Calcium Carbonate,Vitamin C ,Cellulose ,Maltodextrin ,Niacin ,Vitamin E ,Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose ,Pantothenic Acid ,Modified Maize Starch ,Acacia ,Silicon Dioxide ,Maize Starch ,Vitamin B6 ,Thiamin ,Colours (Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxides) ,Riboflavin ,Magnesium Stearate, Stearic Acid ,Vitamin A ,Talc ,Manitoba, sucrose, Folic Acid ,Antioxidant,Vitamin D ,Vitamin B12

                Basically just all the vitamins you need to be having everyday in one tablet which is what you expect from a multivitamin. All the multivitamins I have seen and tried all have the majority of the same ingredients and do the same thing so I don't know why the price varies so much!

                The tablets are very small compared to ones i have had in the past so they are really easy to swallow.

                As I said before I don't see any difference or feel any different but its just the piece of mind that I am keeping my body healthy. I would recommend that everyone takes a multivitamin once a day just to ensure the are getting there vitamins and at 39p you can't really grumble!

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                Have been using these for years

                Every so often we go through a stage in our house where we decide between the two of us (my husband and myself) that we are going to take a multi vitamin tablet, take a little bit more exercise, drink a little bit less and eat more healthy food. We usually manage to maintain one or two of the above for a fair while until we drift off again and let bad habits start. I do, however, always try to take some sort of a multi vitamin ,and I encourage my husband to do the same. The reason I do this is because sometimes I know we don't eat as well as we should - it's just a fact of life.

                I can't afford to buy very expensive vitamin supplements and I do rate the Tesco Value Range of products very highly and so for this reason I buy their own multi vitamin tablets. They are cheap and boast that they contain everything I need in one little tablet every day. We usually take these with our breakfast every morning as the pot says to take them with a meal and swallow with liquid.

                The tablets themselves are plainly packaged, as you would expect, as they are part of the Tesco Everyday Value Range of products. The pot is basically white plastic and has a child proof blue twist and press off top which can be very hard to use when the pots are new.

                I buy the smaller pots, generally speaking as they are cheap at only 39p for 30 tablets. Occasionally, they are on offer for three pots for the price of two and this is when I stock up. I have been using these multi vitamins for ages now and they are now just part of my daily routine. The ingredients are as follows:
                Calcium Carbonate,Vitamin C ,Cellulose ,Maltodextrin ,Niacin ,Vitamin E ,Hydroxypropylmethylcellulose ,Pantothenic Acid ,Modified Maize Starch ,Acacia ,Silicon Dioxide ,Maize Starch ,Vitamin B6 ,Thiamin ,Colours (Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxides) ,Riboflavin ,Magnesium Stearate ,Stearic Acid ,Vitamin A ,Talc ,Mannitol ,Sucrose ,Folic Acid ,Antioxidant (Tocopherol) ,Triglycerides ,Vitamin D ,Vitamin B12.

                I still suffer from the occasional cold or flu symptoms and cannot say that I feel any 'fitter' or more energetic for taking them, but then I don't know how I'd be faring if I wasn't taking them. I suppose, therefore, I am taking them just as some sort of reassurance. They are easy to swallow, not too large so they get lodged at the back of the throat, and once you get into the habit of taking one very morning, it's like brushing your teeth - you just do it out of habit, really.

                They are suitable for both vegetarians and vegans alike and well worth the price, in my opinion. I have taken more expensive multi vitamin tablets in the past, when I was able to afford them, and these seem to contain the exact same ingredients as those, so I see no point in paying more money than I need to.

                Recommended - if just for peace of mind.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                They do the job but for me I couldn't stomach the taste

                =Tesco Everyday Value Multivitamins=

                I tend to take a multi Vitamin over Winter, I start with good intentions, but don't always see it through, and when I saw these at Tesco for 39p for a tub of multi-vitamins, I thought I would give them a try.

                =Cost and Availability=

                =Suitable for..=

                These tablets are suitable for Vegetarians

                =Free From=
                Milk
                Wheat
                Egg
                Fish

                =How to take these tablets=

                You swallow one tablet a day, ideally with a meal. There are guidelines, such as not to take if trying to get pregnant, pregnant or breast feeding.

                =Taking The Tablets=
                The tablets are small in size, they are about 1cm in diameter, and are easy to swallow, but they do have a chalky feel, and a weird orange taste, if I couldn't get the tablet down the first time, they tasted awful, I will admit that I do lose at least 5 tablets through not getting them down 1st time, so I had to get a fresh tablet.

                =Aftertaste=
                The good news is there was no after taste in the tablets

                =What did I think=
                From a health perspective a Vitamin tablet is not going to be the magic solution, but I would hope as I guess we all would that this may help in a little way.

                For me the tablets have about the same amount of multi-vitamins as most of the other multi vitamins, with these Value ones you're not paying for a brand,

                =For Me=
                I did not go back for anymore of this brand, as I just couldn't really get on with the chalky taste, but that is me, there was nothing really wrong with them otherwise, they were excellent value for money.

                =Would I recommend=
                I would recommend, but I would tell the person that I found the chalky element a problem.

                =Overall=
                I would give these a 4/5.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                Not a magic wand but a help to get back into good health

                I did a top up shop on Tesco.com afew weeks ago. My local store is abit of a distance from me, so find it more convenient to do it online. I wasn't looking specifically for vitamins, but when I saw the price I thought it was a good buy. For a jar containing 30 tablets, it costs 39p and they were, and still are, doing a 3 for 2 promotion.



                Why did I buy this?

                Im not the most pro active in regards to my health at the moment. Not a deliberate thing, but just always on the go with very little time for myself. The same as most people but especially those with children. Not enough sleep, eating if and when I can, general stresses etc all have some form of impact, and I thought getting a vitamin supplement would do more good than harm. When I saw the price I felt it was a no brainer!



                How is it packaged?

                As you can imagine from the price, this product is part of Tescos budget range called ' Everyday Value .' Its very basic in style and look-white plastic tub with blue screw top that needs to be pushed on both side to turn and then open. The logo ' Tesco Everyday Value ' name is clearly marked on the front with ' Multivitamins for everyday health and vitality ' directly underneath. Some pictures in blue at the bottom such as smiley face, person on a bike.

                On the side is per tablet the vitamin/mineral content and amount. On the back how to take along with the ingredients and contact details for Tesco.

                Suitable for vegetarians. Free From: Milk, Wheat, Egg, Fish



                How to take?

                Swallow one tablet a day, ideally with a meal. Do no exceed the daily dosage.Do not take if pregnant, trying to get pregnant or if breastfeeding unless specified by a doctor.



                What do I think?

                Im not a fan of tablets full stop, but these are quite small ( around 1cm diameter ) and easy to swallow. Not the most appealing tablet I have ever seen, very dull and chalky in look, muted orange in colour but I had no issue swallowing it which is a bonus for me. No funny taste.

                In regards to what it does, its very hard to comment at this stage. This isn't something I have been taking for months and months. And to be fair, its not something Im taking to wake up and look like Halle Berry nor run as fast as Usain Bolt the next day, but it really is to ensure any vitamins or minerals Im lacking ( which I can imagine I am ) I can add into my diet. For me this is a very cost effective way of creating some balance for me physically, and with a more healthier lifestyle e.g exercise, good diet and alittle more rest I can only see these little cheap tablets doing me good not harm.


                Would I buy again? I dont see why not. As long as it has decent amounts of minerals and vitamins in it to help me run at my most efficent.
