As you all know, I take pride in the fact that I try to give Angela the best nutritional value from food that I can. So yes, I was super excited to be a part of the team to help spread the word about this new product that is about to hit the market!
I make 90% of everything from fresh organic products. I monitor Angela’s sugar intake, physical activity, and all of that other fun stuff. However, I’m still concerned that she doesn’t quite get all of the proper essential key nutrients – like B Vitamins, and Vitamins C & E – to help support her energy, immunity and metabolism*. (*This statement has not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.) I trust Centrum® because it is the world’s most clinically-studied, most recommended and is America’s most preferred multivitamin brand. Since Angela does tend to love her macaroni and cheese or pizza nights, I have to make sure that she doesn’t fall short in getting her essential nutrients. Yes, just like 46% of Americans, I sometimes lack the time to make every meal completely nutritious with all of the fruits and veggies that she needs.
As a caretaker of a specials family member, we have a routine that we stick with on a daily basis. One part of the routine is our daily dosage of meds, morning and night. With those meds comes her newly incorporated Centrum® VitaMints®. Angela has really been enjoying them so far! She mostly enjoys the refreshing minty taste that comes from the Centrum® VitaMints® chewables. Good Lord knows that she’s been so trained to just swallow all of her meds she has been on, so I think she finds comfort that she doesn’t have to swallow them. When I first gave them to her, she just looked at me as if to say, “I have to swallow those?” They’re definitely not her normal tiny pills. I just giggled, and before she spoke I told her, “You don’t have to swallow these…just chew them.” She totally let out a sigh of relief lol. It was a little hysterical, and I’m totally not gonna lie about that!
As you can see from the image, the Centrum® VitaMints® Chewables are almost size of nickel…almost. I think that’s just about the right size, as most chewable antacids are actually a little bit bigger in width and diameter. I’m also a little fond of the lid of the Vitamints®. Honestly, I can only unscrew but so many bottles in a day. It has a nice snap closing hinged flip lid. This is a great design, especially since I have carpal tunnel syndrome. Yeah, I know…opening bottles might not seem to be a big task for most…but for me it can be, especially during my time flare ups from using my wrists a little too much during the day from typing or cooking all of the time.
I know what most of you are already thinking, “Does Angela think that it’s candy?” The answer is: No! Angela completely knows the difference between candy and non-candy items, so she understands to not grab the bottle out of our bedroom (which is where we can all of her meds & vitamins locked away in) and eat them when she has a sweet tooth.
In the end, I completely feel that Angela (and I) are going to enjoy Centrum® VitaMints® Chewables. She likes the taste and that fact she doesn’t have to swallow them, and I like the fact that I don’t have to stress or worry that she’s not going to get all of the key essential nutrients that her body needs.
