Review of the Vitafusion Multi-vites
These vitamins are chewable and gummy, and also very tasty! The MultiVites by Vitafusion come in an array of 3 different all natural flavours, berry, peach and orange. If you are not a fan of the solid whole vitamins then these are an excellent choice, they taste very similar to candy but are also glucose free! Make sure you stick to the recommended dosage of two gummies per day as some of the ingredients are fat soluble and may build up in the body if taken much too often, although not a big concern it is something to keep in mind.
What I found great about these MultiVites was how easy it is to take them, it just makes your day so much easier when you can just eat them like candy when rushing out the door for work and not have to worry about washing them down with a drink or any after taste. If you have kids these are also a great option for the obvious reason of the candy like taste and gummy style, from what I here some parents now have to limit there children to the correct dose when before they had trouble feeding just one of the more generic “hard” vitamins (it is recommended to feed 1 gummy instead of 2 for children).
Although these Vitafusion Multi-vites have a lower density of actual vitamins compared to the regular swallow style I am overly pleased with them becasue of there ease of use and I highly recomend them even if you use them as a secondary vitamin source!
Update as of 2014: These chewable multi-vites are still a go to choice for those looking for an alternative to whole pills. There are actually not many other alternatives that have come out on the market recently. My cupboard is stocked with these at home, and i regularly recommend them to friends and family. If you have children, these are a great tasting choice, just make sure not to eat too many!
