- My wife hates taking vitamins
- A lot of my clients hate taking vitamins.
- There is even a facebook group dedicated to the hatred of vitamins.
And that’s why I went looking for nutritional supplements that can give you all the benefits of multivitamins without setting off your gag reflex.
And, after an extensive 2 months of guinea pig / training client / wife testing, I have come up with two products that I can honestly recommend as an alternative to those giant, stinky multivitamins you are choking down this morning with your O.J.
Disclosure – During this little experiment, I tried out products from 7 different manufacturers. These were the two products that I found worthy of recommending to you. The other 5 are in a landfill somewhere.
In the past, I have written about my favorite “green food” supplement – Vege Greens.
And while I am still a big fan of Vege Greens, I have always had one big problem trying to convince clients to replace their Flintstone multivitamins with a tub of green food.
While it’s great to know that each scoop of green food has 115 mg of Acerola Berries…
…I have no idea how much Acerola Berry me and my clients need every day.
But, I do have a good idea how much Beta Carotene and Vitamin C and Magnesium we need to consume.
And that’s why I contacted the fine folks at Athletic Greens.
Because unlike with Vege Greens, I can tell my clients that each serving of Athletic Greens contains this much Beta Carotene or that much Magnesium, etc…
Personally, I replaced my Vege Greens with Athletic Greens and was very pleased with the results. In the past, when I have cycled off Vege Greens, I have always noticed a drop off in energy and an increase in my stupid allergy symptoms.Plus, it tastes great and after pestering the owner of the company with about a million emails and questions, I am very happy about the quality of ingredients and manufacturing process of this product.
I felt great on Athletic Greens and now I have a product I can very easily recommend to clients.
A lot of people who have read this article and clicked through to the Athletic Greens site have emailed me complaining about the price of Athletic Greens. And while it’s true that a tub of AG is pricier than a tub of Greens+ or Vege Greens, I always tell them that once they try AG, they will never question the price again.
It’s been almost a year, and I am still buying Athletic Greens for me and my wife.
Another product that was really popular with my clients was multiforce ORAC from Prairie Naturals.
Especially popular with those people who just can’t stand the taste of green food, multiforce ORAC not only covers your basic vitamins & minerals, it gives you a serious dose of antioxidant polyphenols from Hi-ORAC berries and fruit
Prairie Naturals is another company whose manufacturing process and ingredient quality I feel comfortable recommending.
On a personal note, I found the multiforce ORAC to be a little too sweet for my tastes, so I cut the sweetness on alternate days with either a splash of lemon juice of a serving of Prairie Naturals Morning Rise & Shine product. And while both the lemon juice and Rise & Shine were equally effective in cutting the sweetness of my morning health drink, the Rise & Shine provided a very noticeable impact upon my digestive regularity.
I am telling you – it was like clockwork.
Long story short… even though I didn’t request a sample of Rise & Shine, I am pretty happy they sent me one.
So there you go…two multi vitamin alternatives for people who hate to take multi vitamins.
