Item Of The Day

For all of my unhealthy habits in life, I feel really strongly about gettin’ my vitamin groove on. It’s a rare day that I get the requisite 5-per-day of fruits and veggies and while I’m working on changing that, it doesn’t hurt to have help.

Multivitamins are a booster for all occasions, but not just any old one will do. I pass right by the Centrums and look for the familiar Alive! label. For those of you not familiar with Nature’s Way‘s Alive! offshoot, they’re daily multivitamins and multiminerals – they include 26 fruits and vegetables and other fancy stuff to keep you at your best. Not to mention they’re formulated in such a way that your body absorbs them easily, as if they actually came from fresh foods.

I am obsessed with the Women’s Energy version. I generally can barely hold my head up by 3pm during the weekdays, but these babies keep me going somehow. We’re in a co-dependent relationship, okay? If I run out or am away from these things for one day, I can immediately tell the difference and it is not a good one. In addition, they help to keep our bones strong and our breasts… something (healthy?) and are just generally really great.

They’re available at your local store for about $12.99 for a 50 day supply!

    Sounds good. However are they organic?

  • Tamara McCoy-Carroll

    I’ve seen this brand so many times and definitely have thought about trying it. I am curious though–how large are the pills? I prefer chewable just because multi-vitamins often seem like the size of a saucer!

  • Loretta Woods

    we use the alive women’s vitamins too, but not the one a day ones. the ones we take you find in the organic/health food section of stores (or simply in health food stores), and you take them 3 times a day. you think the singles make a difference? try these ones!!! its amazing- and even my doctor swears by them 😉

    is this the 5ALIVE! in pill form?? it was a juice some time ago. is it vegan?

  • Emma Tukdarian

    The adult gummys are vegan! Too bad the closest store is hours away :(
    I need vegan gummy vitamins….

  • Lori Blakey

    I love these! I’ve been taking them for almost a year now. They’re big, but still don’t give you that mineral taste or feeling in your stomach. It’s the only pill vitamin I’ve actually kept up with on a daily basis.

  • Brittany Woodell

    Does it have that vitamin smell/after taste? I can’t stand that – and I really need to find a vitamin that doesn’t.

  • Viviane Bressan Formentin

    I take these once a day, but I haven’t found much of an improvement over my other ones (everyday woman). They both are huge tablets, taste bad and make my pee super yellow :-/ Still looking for others.

    Do you still drink coffee (if you ever did drink coffee)?
