It's been a little over a month since I started taking Adult Essentials vitamins. Any other time in my life when I have starting taking vitamins, I have always given up by now. I have so much trouble swallowing pills so it just never seems worth the daily struggle to get them now. Not so with Adult Essentials. I look forward to having my gummy "treat" each morning. I love that I am following through with this step to help improve my health. I try to eat well and incorporate exercise into everyday but I'm not perfect with either so Adult Essentials is helping me fill in the gaps.
So far, the big difference I have noticed is my sleep patterns. I used to have trouble getting to sleep so I would usually go to bed with my husband and then get back up after he fell asleep. Some nights I would be up until 2 or 3am and then have to drag myself out of bed in the morning to get the kids ready for school. The past few weeks, I go to bed with my husband and usually fall asleep before he does. It's not that I'm overly tired, I just drift off much easier than before. This has had a huge impact on my morning routine. Instead of hitting the snooze button two or three times, I get up when the alarm goes off and I feel rested! This obviously makes our mornings much more pleasant.
For those of you who don't know, Adult Essentials are gummy vitamins specifically designed for adults. They are gluten free, nut free and dairy free and use only natural flavours and colours.They are available at most Rexall Pharma Plus, Loblaws/Real Canadian Superstores, London Drugs and are coming to Shoppers Drug Mart in Spring 2012. They are also available online at Well.ca
