I love eating healthy but I still believe in supplementing my diet with vitamins. I won’t say that I remember to do so every single day, but I do try! Why take vitamins? Well to me, I feel like I just don’t always get the recommended 5 to 7 servings of fresh fruits and vegetables a day! Plus, I know that there is a clear link between vitamin deficiencies many of our most common diseases. I take a whole food supplement to make sure I get needed vitamins in the right quantities.
Vitacost Whole Food Daily Multi-Vitamin Review:
I was happy to get to review the Vitacost Whole Food Daily Multi-Vitamin. The name itself said good things to me as I believe whole food is most natural and easily absorbed by the body. But wait, there’s more to love! Vitacost Whole Food supplements feature organic, non-GMO ingredients and nutrients from raw, whole foods and herbs. Plus they are 100% vegetarian! I don’t want to sound like I am gushing but:
- Free of artificial colors, flavors and preservatives
- No chemical fillers, binders or stearates
- Labels printed on recycled paper with water-based ink
- 22 vitamins and minerals, including folate, iron, B12 and plant-based calcium
- Stress/Energy Support Blend‡ with organic maca, chamomile and schisandra
- Immune Support Blend‡ with organic elderberry, eleuthero and astralagus
- Mixed carotenoids, organic ginger and organic turmeric
Vitacost Whole Food Daily Multi-Vitamins are easy to take- just one a day! They are also specialized into a Men’s and a Women’s variety so that they can be formulated to meet the specific nutritional needs of each sex.
Vitacost Raw Whole Food B-Complex Review:
I try to fix meat about 3 or 4 nights a week. If you are not a big meat eater like me, then you could sure use a Vitamin B supplement (since a primary source of Vitamin B is meat) because suboptimal levels of vitamins B-6 and B-12 are a risk factor for cardiovascular disease and breast cancer. Once again, I dig this supplement because it is whole foods (contains stuff like Organic Strawberry, Organic Cherry, Organic Blackberry, Organic Blueberry and Organic Raspberry) and because it features organic, non-GMO ingredients. I only recently discovered that I may need vitamin B supplements and let me tell you I feel a difference in my energy levels when I take this- a real boost!
Of course, the products I mentioned are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease and you should always consult with your health care provider about any health concerns!
At Vitacost, when you refer a friend, you both get a Vitacost discount coupon for $10 off! Sweet, huh?
