I grew up taking Nature Made vitamins. They were just part of my life. My dad always said, “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day,” and right next to that hearty breakfast was this vitamin dispenser that my parents still use. At some point, in my adult life, I grew tired of taking all those pills and I just stopped doing it. Then I had a baby and everything changed. It seemed no matter what I ate, how much I slept, or how many walks I went on with the baby to “get some fresh air,” I remained exhausted beyond belief.
I finally went to the doctor and had a thorough exam, including blood tests. He told me I was severely deficient in Vitamin D and suggested I take a supplement, along with a multivitamin. He said it would take a few weeks to notice some results. I could easily handle taking two pills a day, especially if they made me feel like myself again. The energetic, happy, always on-the-go woman my friends knew me to be, and my daughter deserved me to be. Watch this short video to find out what happened after my second week of taking the vitamins.
Something I hear often from people is that they are just so overwhelmed when they walk down the vitamin aisle at the store; there are so many brands and so many different options! Nature Made has a really cool feature on its website that helps you figure out exactly what you need. It’s called a “vitamin assessment” and, after answering some questions, Nature Made recommends a customized vitamin plan that’s right for you, based on your lifestyle. The company also has a terrific rewards program that gives you high value coupons worth up to $7 off Nature Made products, exercise DVDs and other fun things. As an aside, I noticed the company recently came out with some new products and I’m eager to try the Skin Beauty & Wellness pack. I’ve never tried what, for lack of a better term, I’ll call a “vanity pack,” but the clock is ticking and I’ll take all the help I can get! 😉 Have you tried any products like this? How do vitamins make a better YOU?
