If you've been reading along with my recent posts on getting in shape and becoming healthier, then you know that last month, I began eating a healthier diet, getting exercise and taking vitamins and supplements on a daily basis.
Earlier this year, after I tweeted about my insomnia, a friend on Twitter recommended that I try taking Melatonin before bed, saying that it was a natural supplement that aids in sleep. I tried it...and it worked.
Another friend recommended B-complex vitamins for energy and increased metabolism during the day. I tried it...and it worked.
I became a vitamin and supplement believer.
I had my daughter start taking a special teen vitamin every night before bed!
I began my daily vitamin regiment with just vitamins C and B-12.
Then I slowly added to the arsenal, as people began recommending different things, and after a meeting with my doctor.
The only problem with all of these vitamins and supplements was that I was taking a lot of pills each day. I did take a simple multivitamin each night with my Melatonin, but it didn't have high enough concentrations of the vitamins that were important to me, so each morning, I also took Vitamin C, B-12, B-complex and Chromium Picolinate.
That's a lot of pills.
So, you can imagine my excitement when I heard about the Energy Specialist Vitamins by Centrum hitting the shelves at my local Walmart a few weeks ago. I read up on them on the Centrum website, and found that they actually had a Specialist Energy multivitamin! I used the Formula Finder on their website to figure out what would work best for me, and lo and behold, it recommended the Centrum Specialist Energy formula. It has Ginseng and higher levels of B vitamins than most multivitamins, so it helps your body produce energy naturally.
While I was on the website, I went over to their Facebook page and liked it, because Centrum has a promotion for a $3 off coupon if you are a fan of their Facebook! How cool is that? Vitamins can be pretty pricey, so $3 off is a great incentive!
I headed to our local Walmart Supercenter, where I was happy to find that they had a huge endcap display full of every kind of Centrum Specialist multivitamin. You can check out all the photos from shopping trip for Centrum Specialist Energy Multivitamins!
Now that I am taking the Centrum Specialist Energy multivitamin each morning, I don't have to worry about taking a ton of individual vitamins. It makes my morning routine simpler, which means that I have more time to spend concentrating on my daughter in the morning, which is really the most important thing in my day!
