I like my gummy vitamins

I was watching a friends video log of his current experience with cleansing and then going straight into a Paleo lifestyle and it reminded me I need to take my vitamins. Random I know but on his day 7 video he broke down the vitamins he was taking. 
I thought I would share with you the vitamins that I try to take on a regular basis. I do good for about a week and then forget for about am month.  I need to be better at taking my vitamins, but like everything else its a work in progress. I think I take more gummy vitamins then I do regular vitamins, so that is something right.  I am also not picky about the brand - so this is what I have now and when I run out it could change.

From Left to Right:
Fiber Tablets - Can't go wrong with a little extra fiber
Kids Chewables - These are for my daughter, but I also take them
Vitamin C - A must in our house as it seems someone always has the sniffles
Multi - A good overall vitamin
B12 - my new found love, I usually take one of these in the afternoon for an energy kick
Something else I have been adding to my smoothies for a little added energy is electrolytes. I am not sure yet if I like it. The taste is a little salty, and I think I feel a little energy boost from them when I use them in the morning, but overall I can't make an informed decision. I figure if it keeps me from the 5-hour energy and its not hurting me I might as while try it for a while and see if I like it.

Do you take vitamins regularly or are you like me and take them half the time? Any interesting products you are trying with the new year, every time I turn around I feel like some new 'health' product. I never know what to try. I will say a good recommendation goes a long way. So let me know what you like.

Oh and yes I have yellow duck tape in my cabinet. You don't? It was purchased for my daughters Halloween costume when she wanted to be a bumble bee. She ended up changing her idea. If you have kids in preschool you know everything needs to be marked if you want to see it again, so I used it to make her toys she takes to school now.

  1. I go in spurts. I get all gung-ho and then I forget for awhile. I add protein and fibre to my morning smoothie and I also take a multi (well, I'm actually using up my leftover prenatal vitamins right now...). But B12 hey? I've heard about that and have always thought of trying it...

  3. I think if I wasn't making my child take them every day I would forget. I figure her gummies are better then nothing.

  4. I've added Vit. D to my vitamin ritual- it seems to be really helping my achey joints. It is really important in over-all health and many people are lacking Vit. D.

    I also started taking an immune support 1000 mg Vit C with Calcium.

    I make my kid take Vit C and a multi vit every day. They also take fish oil.

  7. I am the WORST vitamin taker. I buy them and put them right next to at the dinner table (in the bottle) and still forget to take them (so lame!). I really want to do better. I take a medication everyday before bed - perhaps I should move my vitamins to taking at that time and have more luck . . . probably not, I have my allergy meds there and still manage to forget - ha!

  8. I take vitamins on and off. I do pretty good remembering to take them most of the time. I love Flintstones gummy vitamins.

  9. I take the boys gummy vitamins. As long as we have them in the house we all take them together. I'm horrible at remembering to buy them. I did see a show over the weekend that mentioned B12 so I was going to look into that.
