Boots Multivitamin Tablets
I do like to try and look after myself but sometimes it is difficult to ensure I get enough exercise not to mention vitamins. The government guidelines recommend getting 5 pieces of fruit and vegetables a day but other scientific reports state that you should be getting at least 10. With so much confusing information around it might be helpful for everyone to take a multivitamin tablet.
I always try to take a multivitamin tablet every day. I don't have a particular brand that I am loyal to but at the moment I am taking a multivitamin by boots as they were on a two for three offer the last time I bought some. Their own brand multivitamins come in the choice of just plain vitamins or you can get them with a variety of different supplements such as added ginsing and iron but these are more expensive.
They contain essential vitamins and minerals which everyone needs and one tablet contain your daily amount of these vitamins and minerals with the exception of vitamin C which the tablet only gives you 50% of the recommended daily amount.
The vitamins included in the tablets are: Vitamins A, D and E, Vitamins B1, B2,B5, B6 and B12 and folic acid.
I usually begrudge the price of vitamins and think that manufacturers are charging way too much for them but these tablets are one of the cheapest available at only 99p for the plain multivitamins for a bottle of 30 and with the 3 for 2 it means you can get a three month supply for only 1.98 which is a really good price.
The tablets themselves are not huge in size so people who don't like taking them shouldn't have a problem, they are a light brown colour and coated to make them more palatable and easy to swallow. They are pretty tasteless just a slight sweetness from the coating and are odourless.
Once swallowed that is it and I have experienced no reactions from these pills such as them repeating on me which I have had with some other multivitamins.
The recommended dosage is one tablet a day with water and they have not to be taken by children under the age of twelve.
It's difficult to judge whether or not these multivitamins are helping me or not but it is scientifically proven you need these vitamins to remain healthy so I put my trust in that. In an ideal world I would be getting all my vitamins from my food but let's be honest how many people are really eating copious amounts of green leafy vegetables every day? I know I don't and as much as I would love to eat a balanced diet every day my lifestyle just doesn't make that a practical option so for less than a pound a month I will continue to take these vitamins and try and top up with fruit and vegetables when I can.
Summary: A good cheap way to get your reccommended daily amount
