Take your Vitamins Giveaway!

Good Morning!

I'm getting a quick post in before we head off to my cousin's wedding!

Here is Whitney, me and B at her brother's wedding this past summer.

On this post, I'm going to review the rest of the FREE Swanson products that Swanson Health Products sent me about a month ago. If you'd like to read about the first set of reviews and what all Swanson gave me, click here!

Today is all about the vitamins! I've been taking these vitamins for a few weeks now, and even though I think vitamins are hard to judge in that amount of time, I'm going to give you my first impressions of them. Please remember, I'm not a dietician and I'm not advocating taking any vitamins. This is just my opinion!

Formula VM-75 Multivitamin
This vitamin I was most excited to take! This is a general multivitamin, but if you look up reviews for this little guy, people love him! Most notice a jump in mood and energy right away and can noticeably tell when they have run out and don't take it. I've been super stressed and busy lately, but I haven't crashed and I still have plenty of energy at the end of the day for a good workout and to get things done around the house (and blog:). Is it because of these multivitamins? I don't know, but I can tell a difference;)

This little softgel is a calcium and magnesium vitamin with added Vitamin D. Calcium is great for bone and teeth health. Cal/Mag can also aid the help of leg or other cramps. I haven't noticed a big difference since I started taking this-but how can you tell if your bones are stronger? Calcium is just a smart supplement!

I have taken this for a little over a month now. You can take it with every meal if you want, but I usually forget and just take it once a day with my other vitamins. Fish Oil is great for cardiovacular health and joint function. Every time after Zumba, my knees used to ache! I barely notice them anymore! Is it because of fish oil? Maybe! But I'm not gonna stop taking it to find out;)

This is an interesting one! Coenzyme Q10 is naturally found in the body, but as you get older, the body makes less of it. Organs that have the highest energy requirements (heart, liver, kidneys) have the highest Coenzyme Q10. In short, by taking Coenzyme Q10, you can boost energy, enhance the immune system (less sickness!) and acts as an antioxidant. I can feel the energy!

    1. I am now officially following you and have liked Swanson on FB!
      I'd love to try their juice and protein powders! I'm particularly interested in the Amazing Grass products that they stock.

    2. I'll enter- however I'm not a big believer in vitamins and supplements (sorry- does that disqualify me?!) for a lot of reasons.... I think I'd be willing to look their products over and would most likely go for a protein powder. :)
      And you know I follow you ! :)

    3. I have done both...just forgot to tell you lol

    4. Sarah-They have all sorts of products! Toothpaste, food, bars; so it doesn't have to be vitamins/supplements! I'm sure you would find something:)
