WHY DID I BUY IT
I recently reviewed some vitamin C tablets, then thought well if I am boosting my vitamin C then why don't I ensure I am getting my quota of other vitamins at the same time instead of buying them separately - so next time I was in Asda I did just that, albeit it cost a little more but you get a heck of a lot of tablets for your money.
PRICE AND WHERE TO BUY
I paid £3.50 for my pack of 250 tablets, which works out at 1.4p per tablet if you're interested in that price format. As mentioned I purchased these items at my local Asda store, but other major retailers also have their own brand of these tablets which I presume would do a similar job here. Asda tend to have a lot of offers on currently, and these tablets are under their 3 for £10 range so savings can be made, though given the fact I tend to take one per day then I didn't really want to buy two years' worth of tablets in one go!
The package itself is a small tub containing the 250 individual tablets which are loose in the tub, though the tub itself does have a child-safe lid that you need to squeeze and push down to open, so is very handy if you have little ones running around raiding your cupboards.
The tablets are small (same size as a drawing pin head) brown circular in shape, and as a result are relatively easy to swallow with a glass of water. The do have a slight woody flavour I find, but as long as you don't chew them then this doesn't linger in your mouth and disappears once you swallow the tablet (no awful repeating itself on you later in the day either).
The product itself is also gluten-free and doesn't contain any artificial flavours, colours or preservatives.

As per the guidelines on the packet, I try to take this tablet once a day with a glass of water to give my body its Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) of these key vitamins, though I don't really feel much different so if you are hoping for a product that makes you go cartwheeling into your car in the morning, then I would stick to the Red Bull. Even though there is no noticeable difference, I do feel better in myself than I know I am getting pretty much my full allowance of vitamins each day that is needed to keep my body healthy.
As mentioned above, while this product doesn't really make me feel any noticeably different, I do enjoy peace of mind that I am getting my healthy allowance of the vitamins here, and I also like the fact that I can get my boost of all the vitamins in a single tablet, rather than taking a multitude of different ones each day, so the maximum I can give this one is four out of five.
Summary: Helps me feel better about my health
