I normally do not have a problem with vitamins, but lately the only way I have been able to keep down my current prenatal vitamin was to make sure I had a couple of mini peanut butter cups. As embarrassing as it is to admit that, it worked and so I did it for a few weeks. Then I was offered the opportunity to review Premama Prenatal Vitamins and after reading how they come in drink mix form (i.e. powder), I was all for trying something new. Especially, if it would keeping me from making donations of my recent meal and dose of vitamins to my beloved toilet.
Premama has a lot of the same ingredients that my current vitamins have like Folic Acid, Iron, Calcium, Vitamin B(2, 3, 6, 12), plus a few others that my current vitamins do not have like DHA Omega-3 fatty acid. It also has some additional ingredients like Ginger and Magnesium to help soothe nausea. The Premama Vitamin powder come in small packets with the option of taking 2 packs in one serving or splitting them up during the day. It is recommended to take them with 6 oz of flavored fluid per pack and consuming within 5 minutes of mixing.
When my vitamin sampled arrived I dared to try them with just water to see how it tasted. Admittedly, the powder in plain water does not taste absolutely wonderful, but it is not bad, either. There is definitely a slight taste, but it tastes so much better than getting a regular vitamin stuck in your mouth on the way down your throat. Yuck! I have been taking my Premama Vitamins with an orange flavored drink. Although, it does not completely dissolve, leaving the liquid a little thicker than one is used to, it is manageable. I think I wouldn’t even notice it if I added it to a shake. Using these powder vitamins has left me with barely any nausea afterwards. So I am pretty much a fan of that! I love having my mornings back and not worrying about keeping my vitamins down.
Anyone else want to give these vitamins a try? Are you sick of being sick?
I am excited to be giving away a 30 day supply of Premama Prenatal Vitamins to 1 lucky Fun On a Dime reader.
*I recieved a 7-day sample for the purpose of this review. I thought it would be fun for a reader to get a 30 day supply of their own, so I took the review offer. =) All opinions are 100% my own!
