I’m quite a novice to the whole Multivitamin scene and haven’t actually had a “routine” for many years. I sometimes go through phases of taking supplements or tablets when I’m ‘Gym Active’ but let’s face it that’s very rare! So when I was sent a variety of Multivitamins from Swisse I was intrigued to see how they would work for me and how they might improve my health and wellbeing.
Swisse are Australia’s #1 multivitamin and food supplement brand who aim to help people live healthier and happier lives! They are exclusively available at Boots either online or in store for very competitive prices.
In August of this year Swisse partnered up with Team GB, and the British Olympic Association to become the vitamin providers to the hugely successful GB team who walked away with 67 medals! It must have been down to the vitamins! And if there good enough for some of Great Britain’s top athletes then they must be good enough for me!
I was sent four different kinds of vitamins, all of which have relevance to my lifestyle which I took every evening immediately after a meal. I kept the tablets stored in a 7 day pill dispenser so it was easily accessible every night, and I could keep on track of what I had taken.
Below I will go into each of the multivitamins I was sent, also how I feel they have helped me.
Swisse Ultiplus Hair Skin Nails
This is probably the vitamin I was most looking forward to trying as for many years now I have struggled with very bad skin so need all the help I can get! In the past I have tried countless different brands who sell tablets which supposedly help your skin but they have simply never worked and cost a fortune! However I have been pleasantly surprised with the Swisse Ultiplus Hair Skin Nails tablets, having only taken them for just over 30 days I can definitely see a difference in the appearance of my skin, which I’m sure is down to its formula of Biotin, Zinc, Selenium & Vitamin C. I know zinc helps boost the immune system and stops inflammation of spots which is perfect! I’m also trying to grow a beard, so the hair element of the vitamin I would say has definitely given me a growth spurt!
Swisse Ultiplus Hair Skin Nails retail at £29.99 for 60 tablets and are available here.
Swisse Men’s Ultivite
Wow ok . . . so basically the Swisse Men’s Ultivite vitamins has every kind of ingredient in! Vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, biotin, vitamin C, magnesium, iron, zinc, vitamins C and D, calcium the list is endless! The Ultivite tablets are supposed to help you maintain a normal immune system, cognitive/heart function and also help the production and release of energy which I would have to agree with. I’m still alive aren’t I? And strangely enough do seem to be a little more spritely in the mornings since I have started taking the vits!
Swisse Ultiplus Maximum Strength EPA/DHA Omega-3 Fish Oil Capsules 1800mg
Let me get 2 things out of the way first! These capsules are rather large, well very large actually! So when taking just make sure you drink a glass of water to ensure you’ve definitely swallowed it! And also do not worry if your pee goes a luminous yellow/green the morning after taking the capsule! I got worried and google it, then realised it was actually the tablets! I have since spoken to my more vitamin savvy friends who said your pee goes that colour when your body has enough of the goodness so it’s just the left over being released. The fish oil capsules are great for brain and vision functions and for me seem to help me concentrate for longer periods of time! Also from what I have read re fish oil, I understand sometimes the tablets can taste fishy but the Swisse range of vitamins have no taste which is all good!
Swisse Ultiplus Maximum Strength EPA/DHA Omega-3 Fish Oil Capsules 1800mg retail at £24.99 for 60 capsules and are available here.
Swisse Ultiplus Energy B+
Like the Swisse Ultiplus Hair Skin Nails vitamins, the Energy B+ was another I was excited to try due to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue it’s supposed to help with. I currently work 3 jobs so I’m never not tired! But I must say these vitamins do really help in that area! I’m no way as tired as I was before, and seems to be consistent throughout the whole day. Along with the reduction of tiredness & fatigue these also help your psychological function again very important for me, as with 3 jobs, blogging and regular life! You can start to go a little crazy! I love these vitamins!
Swisse Ultiplus Energy B + retail at £19.99 for 40 tablets and are available here.
Swisse have a vast range of vitamins and supplements available which you can view here! I absolutely love their products and what they stand for and will no doubt be re purchasing to continue my new vitamin regime which I feel is definitely working for me!
