Vitamins Without the Pill: alternaVites Review and Giveaway (Ends 10/23) CLOSED

Saturday, October 09, 2010 Posted by Dina N


Usually, I have no problem swallowing my vitamins. Ever now and then though, a huge capsule of calcium supplements gets stuck about halfway, and it feels like I will never get it down. Over 100 million Americans have some difficulty swallowing pills - and for them, alternaVites may be just the ticket to taking vitamins that are not a hard pill to swallow.

alternaVites come in single-serve packets, 30 to a box. Each packet contains a daily dose of multivitamin and mineral crystals that dissolve on your tongue. They taste quite good and remind me of powdered candy - sans the sugar. There is no need to mix them with water, and you can take them anywhere. Personally, I like to have my vitamins at bedtime because it's easier to keep track, so portability is typically not an issue. For a weekend out of town or a vacation, it's great not having to carry an entire bottle of pills for just a few doses. alternaVites make it easy - especially if you spend a lot of time travelling.

alternaVites contain 23 essential nutrients and no animal products, no artificial colors and flavors or preservatives, and no chemicals used to glue pills together. A one-month supply retails at $29.99. You can connect with alternaVites on Facebook.

    I am really bad about taking my vitamins. I only seem to take them the week before I make my blood donation (just so I can pass the iron test). But when I do take them, I take a one-a-day orally.

    I take my vitamins in liquid form, but they are hard to find and expensive. I have problems swallowing pills, lol my son thinks it only happens to me.

    I had a headache the other day and it took almost the entire day for me to be able to swallow one pain relief pill. I would love to try alterna Vites.
