Despite my young age I unfortunately suffer from a variety of deficiencies and take pills daily on accordance with what I am prescribed. Recently however, I have had to add yet another pill into the mix when my doctor advised me to take some multivitamins to try and spur off more ailment. I visited my local pharmacy when I was picking up my other prescriptions and following their advice I bought myself Teenvital tablets by Health Aid for £6.99, which are apparently specially formulated for teenagers (and children over six according to the leaflet).
The pills are said to be most useful for those aged 12-16 and so despite exceeding that a little, I was still advised to use them. Apparently, the reason they are somehow more useful for teenagers is that during one's teenage years on account of stress and strain from ordinary life (such as the dreaded exams we all take just before leaving high school) as well as ordinary fitness and performing well, the body can be made to feel weak and not in peak condition. So they advise you take these to help maintain your body and health and keep it in good shape.
As well as this, they are said to be useful for teenagers who particularly dont eat a well balanced and healthy diet (which is pretty ordinary nowadays) and so can help those who aren't filling their body with the necessary supplements and daily requirements it needs to keep running smoothly. As such it aims to maintain their health even if they themselves sometimes neglect to do so.
As obviously it is understandably to know what is in your multivitamin pill, I simply copied this from my own bottle so that it is clear what is in each pill. Each tablet contains a recommended daily allowance (in terms of percentage): Vitamin A ( 2664 iu ) 800.0 ug (100%) Vitamin D ( 200 iu ) 6 ug (125%) Vitamin E ( 10 iu ) 10.0 mg 100 Vitamin C 60.0 mg (100%) Thiamin ( Vitamin B1 ) 1.80 mg (129%) Riboflavin( Vitamin B2 ) 2.00 mg (125%) Niacin 20.0 mg 111 Vitamin B6 ( Pyridoxine ) 2.50 mg 125 Folacin 400.0 ug 200 Vitamin B12 2.00 ug (200%) Biotin 0.15 mg (100%) Pantothenic acid 5.00 mg (83%) Vitamin K 33.0 ug (44%) Calcium 175.0 mg (22%) Iron 14.0 mg (100%) Magnesium 100.0 mg (33%) Zinc 15.0 mg (100%) Iodine 160.0 ug (107%) Copper 0.8mg (80%) Manganese 2.75mg (138%) Selenium 28ug (51%) Chromium 30ug (75%) Molybdenum 25ug (50%)
Free from sugar, yeast, gluten, dairy, soya, salt, artificial colouring, preservatives and flavouring.
Teenagers and children over the age of 6 should take one tablet in the morning with breakfast daily as an excellent and valuable food supplement. Store in a cool dry place , keep out of reach and sight of children. Suitable for vegetarians.
Since using it, I have definitely felt a little more energetic, which is great seeing as that was originally why I started taking them. Right now I can't necessarily afford to eat well all the time as a student, so £6.99 goes a long way in ensuring my health. However, if it were not necessary for me to take these, I probably would be a bit more peeved at the price (even though this sort of number is reasonable for vitamins and/or multivitamins) just because I find pharmacies to be majorly overpriced and don't enjoy giving away my cash on non-essentials. But, like I said, this is just my personal opinion, and £6.99 isn't all that much in the grand scheme of things, especially if it can maintain your teenagers health!
If there is one downside to the tablet however, it would definitely be for me that the pills are somewhat large and a bit difficult to swallow, so it is necessary to really gulp them down.
My product came in a differently designed box from the one in the main image, and is shown here, however it is still the same brand and pill.
