I am a reasonably healthy eater anyway, but I do like to ensure I'm getting all the vitamins and minerals required for my body. When you read everything that you should be eating in order to get all the goodness you need, I feel a bit overwhelmed and think you'd have to do nothing but eat! Taking a multi-vitamin stops me thinking too much about it and I can rest easy knowing that everything my body needs is provided, allowing you to enjoy your food rather than eating a food out of necessity.
There are many multivitamins on the market and knowing which one to pick is daunting. I feel like a bit of an expert now - I stood and read the contents of about 4 different brands. All were very similar but I found the price of these a lot more reasonable. A bottle of 30 tablets cost me £2.50 from a supermarket, compared to another leading brand which was £4.50 for the same amount, with virtually no difference in the viamins supplied.
Sanatogen is well-respected and trusted brand that has been used for many years so I do feekl confident in taking the vitamins.
I won't bore you by listing all the contents, but the main nutritional information that stood out to me was the intake of certain substances such as :
* Iron (100% RDA)
* Vitamin B12 (40% RDA)
* Zinc (150%)
*itamin D (90%)
* Calcium (25%)
* Vitamin C (69%)
I think these vitamins can be quite hard to come by in everday food consumptions, and deficiencies in these can cause problems. Also, I believe the body can't store certain vitamins so knowing they are consumed on a daily basis is good.
===Easy to take..===
The pills are a yellow-brown colour and reasonably small, smooth and odour-free. They are simple to take, slip down easily with a small amount of water and are only taken once a day. Worked into part of a breakfast routine they are no problem whatsoever.
I've only been taking these for a couple of weeks so I can't say I've felt a massive difference. To be honest though I don't expect to or feel as though I need to. The knowledge that my body has all it needs to help well-being and help fight off any illnesses etc is good enough for me!
