Vitamins to the rescue…..
If there is one thing I have been doing at the moment, it is burning the candle at both ends. I don’t seem to have enough hours in the day to do what I need to…..and that is even before factoring time in to do my dreaded cleaning. I am getting up early and going to bed too late. Not good. Definitely a bad breeding ground for wrinkles ….. #tiredeyes. A couple of weeks ago I started to take control…..get more sleep and take some vitamins.
Enter….Essential Female Multi by Viridian. This product is does not just contain your average multivitamins, but goes a few steps further and supports energy, mood and female health. It contains stress reducing saffron, fatigue reducing siberian ginseng, along with hibiscus flower and cranberry for female health. I am slightly impatient and I was wanting to feeling slightly more “Wonderwoman” like immediately, however on the first day I made the mistake of taking them with hot tea…..epic fail. I felt horrendously nauseous for the next couple of hours. Note to self, if instructions say take with food…..that does not equal hot tea. Ever since then I have made sure to drink down with water and food.
The vegetarian capsules themselves are quite large, although relatively easy to swallow…..even if you have a bad gag reflex. I did notice a slight taste from them, but nothing that did not disappear. After a couple of weeks I do feel different. Less tired, more revived, less PMS and generally more on top of things. Reviewing vitamins is always a difficult one as it is very much dependant on your body at that point in time. With this in mind, I have noticed a change and I am going to continue to take these. I like the fact that there is no talc or binder to fill the capsule up.
The Essential Female Multi is aimed at 18-39 year old women, so I fulfill their target market.
