I am tired. So tired. I feel like this is kind of redundant because I’m a mom and you know that already.
But here’s why I’m bringing it up (again): Because for one full week, I looked great. My skin was glowing, my under-eye circles had faded, I had more pep in my step and—dare I say—I looked younger. Yep, I’ll dare to say it: I looked younger. And it certainly wasn’t because I was suddenly getting more sleep. My 13-month-old is currently in the throes of teething, after all.
No, it was because I was trying out an ingenious combination of vitamins: Vitafive’s Beauty Pack. I was surprised that the effects kicked in so quickly, but they really did. Maybe I had been neglecting myself that much, maybe they just work that well, I’m not sure. But I do know what you’re thinking: Vitamins are vitamins. Big deal. That’s where you’re wrong. These are the exact things you want in your beauty regimen—namely, biotin, vitamin C and Omega-3. That combination strengthens your skin, hair and nails, and generally reduces cellular signs of aging.
Taking multiple vitamins every day may sound less than ideal…until you realize that they’re prepackaged, so you can just grab a packet and go, and they’re yummy gummy vitamins. Full disclosure: I am a gummy fiend. I love gummy worms and strawberries and everything else, and these totally satisfied that craving while actually doing my body good. I actually looked forward to eating—er, taking—these every day. Is it wrong to think of your vitamins as a treat? Because I kind of did. These things are oddly filling and DELICIOUS.
Which is important to remember when it comes to your kids. They are obviously not snacks, and you should store them in a safe place and make that abundantly clear to your little ones if they happen to find them in your purse. That said, Vitafive also makes three versions for kids that boost their immune systems and bone health. It’s an easy, smart way to make sure your picky eaters are getting all of the right nutrients for their growing bodies—and that they don’t give you a hard time about taking them.
You can also choose from a few other adult options: an Immune Pack, perfect for the impending doom and gloom of cold and flu season (er, fall), and an Essential Pack, which is basically a cover-your-bases combo. You can craft your own personalized pack, too, which the Vitafive website easily walks you through.
Another cool feature: These gummies are all vegetarian, and most of them are also vegan.
What will this pretty little packet cost you? A monthly subscription that contains personalized vitamins starts at $14.99, but you’ll likely be spending between $24 and $29 for one of the pre-formulated packs. That’s less than a dollar a day…and even less for the first month with this exclusive 30-percent-off coupon code for Momsanity readers: momsanity30.
So, treat yourself and your health, and enjoy your newfound status as the hot, seemingly well-rested mom on the block.
