I try to have a healthy diet and make sure that I look after myself in general, however, I take the Asda Multi vitamins to fill in any gaps I have and to generally help to keep me well and healthy.
The Asda Multi vitamins come in a round plastic container that is white and it has a purple screw top lid that is easy to use. On first opening the bottle it is covered with a silver foil protective layer that is also easy to remove. The Multi vitamins are designed to help to maintain your general health and should not be used as a food supplement. The tablets are small in size and a brown colour, they have a herbally taste, if you do not swallow them quick enough and smell a bit like Brewers Yeast. You take one tablet per day. They are free from artificial colours, flavours and preservatives and are gluten free.
Each tablet contains your 100% recommended daily allowance (RDA) of Vitamin A, D, Folic Acid and Pantothenic Acid, 75% RDA of Vitamin C, 83% RDA of Vitamin E, 127% RDA of Vitamin B1, 114% RDA of Viatmin B2, 142% Vitamin RDA of Vitamin B12, 112% RDA of Niacin and 40% RDA of Vitamin B12. Other ingredients include:
Calcium Carbonate , Microcrystalline Cellulose , Ascorbic Acid , Nicotinamide , Silicon Dioxide , Dl-Alpha-Tocopheryl Acetate, Calcium Pantothenate , Maltodextrin , Acacia Gum , Hydroxy Propyl Methyl Cellulose , Sucrose , Magnesium Stearate , Colour (Titanium Dioxide) , Pyridoxine Hydrochloride , Thiamine Hydrochloride , Hydroxy Propyl Cellulose , Riboflavin , Retinyl Acetate , Propylene Glycol , Sunflower Oil , Folic Acid , Corn Starch , Dl-Alpha-Tocopherol , Mannitol , Cholecalciferol , Cyanocobalamin .
I bought my vitamins in a 250 tablet container for £3.49 about three months ago and have found them easy to swallow. You can also purchase them in containers of 90 and 180 tablets and they are often on offer in Asda on a multi buy offer, such as two for £6 as part of a three for two offer with other vitamins and supplements. My husband also takes one of the multi vitamins each day and overall agrees with my conclusion. The only down side to these multi vitamins is that they only give you 40% of your RDA of Vitamin B12, so you may have to take another tablet to top this up if you want. Also if you are taking other supplements, they may also contain some of these vitamins, so you should read the label to make sure you are not taking too much of anyone vitamin.
Overall it is difficult to categorically say that these vitamins are actually helping me as I see not real change in my health, however, I will continue to take them as they do I suppose help to top up any deficiencies I may have in my diet and I have not been ill for months or even had a cold, so maybe they are helping.
I would recommend these vitamins to others because they are a multi vitamin there is no need to take a multitude of other supplement they are well priced, easy to swallow and on the surface appear to helpn
Summary: Well priced, easy to swallow
