Berocca Effervescent Tablets
Advantages: gives nice energy boost
Disadvantages: not so fond of the taste, bit expensive to buy frequently
I was actually recommended this by a friend of mine who said they gave a really good energetic, healthy boost and was helping her on a sluggish day so I also thought I would give these a try. Who doesn't want an easy, effective supplement that will give long lasting effects?!
Berocca is an energy supplement with a combination of vitamins and essential minerals. These come in an easy way to consume - these effervescent tablets! I suppose this is a bit of a cheating way to consume all the stuff thats meant to be good for us in one cup ;) It comes in numerous flavours - orange, tropical, boost with Guarana and mixed berries so there are other options for those out there to choose from.
I am no good with orange flavoured things so I bought the pack in the Mixed Berries flavour. The tablets are a round shape, a bit thick and chunky and simply drop the Berocca tablet into a glass of water, (the pack recommends 250ml but I never really measure this out) and then wait for the tablet to fully effervesce before drinking. I find the tablet dissolves quickly but I like to give it a stir to make sure it has combined with the water completely and doesn't just settle at the bottom. This then makes the water an off-pinkish colour. As for taste, it is clearly meant to be a "mixed berry" flavour but for me it has a rather tangy raspberry flavour which isn't all that nice! Saying that, nothing which is good for us tastes nice so I try and gulp it down in one go so as not to taste it too much.
I recently bought a pack from Sainsburys and for 15 effervescent tablets costs £4 which is actually the price of these on offer so this is quite expensive. If in perspective I suppose it is 26p ish per tablet which mixed in water is enough to last a day so not bad and works out cheaper than taking a red bull or a different energy drink!
If I take this in the morning before if I have a cold and I'm a bit sniffly and worse for wear, it gives me the drive to get up and go and get on with things. I do find this gives me a lovely boost and makes me more alert but I don't take it for long term as I don't want to become dependent and still aim to get daily nutrients and vitamins from fruits and vegetables.
Overall I am a fan of Berocca and would definitely recommend it! This can be bought from good pharmacists, supermarkets etc
Summary: nice supplement, easy to take with these effervescent tablets and widely available
