Let me ask you, does everyone take a multivitamin supplement each day?
Maybe I’m asking an obvious question. This is something I only recently started doing myself. Of course I did take my prenatal vitamin religiously while pregnant and breastfeeding. Unfortunately I fell out of the habit when life as a busy Mom took over. I know; excuses, excuses.
I had convinced myself that I was getting all of my daily nutrients through the foods I was eating but clearly I wasn’t. I use the word ‘clearly’ because since I have started with my daily regimen, I have really noticed a difference.
For example, just last week, my sister asked me if I had been tanning. The answer to that was no. I refuse to give wrinkles any type of advantage. The night she asked, I would have said I didn’t look my best. It was the end of the day and I was tired. I was puzzled, but then it dawned on me; the multivitamin!
I have also noticed that my cravings for sweet snacks have significantly decreased. Don’t get me wrong, I’d still choose chocolate over a rendezvous with Christian Bale but it’s not a do-or-die situation. My body had been trying to tell me something, and I wasn’t listening.
Overall, I look better and feel healthier. They say is takes 28 days to create a habit. After 15 consecutive days of swallowing a One A Day Women’s Multivitamin supplement I am well on my way. The Women’s blend is specially formulated to support healthy bones and breast tissue and includes 50% of our daily Calcium requirement.
