Vitabiotics Vitamins Review

I am always buying Vitamins for Bethany, as you may have seen before in previous posts Bethany struggles with her immune system a lot! So when we were ask to try out some Vitamins from Vitabiotics for the family we were excited.
Bethany was sent Well Kid Baby & Infant.

Carefully balanced supplement for babies & infants

From the makers of Pregnacare®, Wellkid® Baby & Infant liquid is ideal for babies and young children from 3 months to 5 years to provide a carefully balanced, comprehensive range of 14 essential vitamins and minerals. Wellkid® Baby & Infant liquid also contains Swiss Alpine malt; with a delicious orange and vanilla taste your little one will love.
Wellkid® Baby & Infant liquid formula includes vitamins A, C and D, as recommended for babies over 6 months. The UK Department of Health recommends that all babies aged from six months onwards should be given a supplement that contains these vitamins.
Wellkid® Baby & Infant liquid provides an ideal nutritional safeguard during a time when babies and infants have a high nutrient requirement in relation to body size, to support their rapid physical growth and development of bones, muscles, blood and the brain. Key nutrients include vitamin D which is needed for normal growth and development of bone in children, plus iron which contributes to normal cognitive development.

What we thought:
Bethany has been taking this for a couple of weeks now and I guess only time will tell as to how she gets on with it. She is very happy to take it from the spoon, and says it tastes nice which is always a plus.

Ben was Sent Wellman Plus

Wellman® Plus 3·6·9

The advanced Wellman® Plus Omega 3·6·9 formula contains all the comprehensive nutritional benefits of Wellman® Original, plus the added benefits of Omega-3, 6 & 9. These EFA's (Essential Fatty Acids) are sourced from Blackcurrant and Pumpkin seed oils, Omega-3 Fish Oil and Olive Oil.
This premium Wellman® formula, from the the UK's number 1 men's supplement brand, is designed for men who lead hectic lives, with work, sports and social commitments yet still need to maintain general health and vitality and comes in a handy dual pack.
Each 3-in-1 capsule provides oils specially selected for men:
  • Omega-3: Pharmaceutical Grade fish oil
  • Omega-6: Blackcurrant Seed Oil, and Pumpkin Seed Oil
  • Omega-9: From Olive Oil (European Pharmacopoeia quality grade)
Wellman® Plus Omega 3·6·9 includes high quality fish oil, designed to meet the highest quality and purity standards. The Omega-3 oils found in Wellman® Plus contain a rich source of DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (Eicosapentaenoic acid). EPA and DHA are classed as essential fatty acids because they cannot be made by the body and must be obtained through the diet.

Immune System and Reproductive Health

A healthy immune system is important to good health. Wellman® Plus includes vitamins A, C, D, B6 and B12 with folic acid and copper which contribute to the normal function of the immune system plus bioflavonoids. Wellman® Plus also provides zinc which contributes to the maintenance of normal testosterone levels in the blood. The formula also includes selenium which contributes to normal spermatogenesis. Since men lose an estimated 5 mg of zinc every time they ejaculate, a good intake of zinc is essential. Folate, iron, magnesium and vitamin B12 have a role in cell division, plus vitamin A which has a role in the process of cell specialisation.
What we thought:
Ben has been taking these for a week now, they come in two different types of blister packs and you take two tablets a day. The Red blister pack has capsules in that contain Fish oil, blackcurrant seed & pumpkin seed oils & olive oil.
The Blue blister pack  has capsules that contain Micronutrients, vitamins and minerals just for men.
He says the capsules are easy to swallow and he already feels like he has more energy.
I tried the WellWoman Plus

Even greater support - especially for women

Wellwoman Plus Omega 3·6·9 contains all the benefits of Wellwoman Original comprehensive nutritional supplement, the UK's number 1 women's supplement brand, with the added benefits of Omega 3, 6 and 9 in a handy dual pack.
Each 3-in-1 capsule provides oils especially selected for women:
Omega-3: From pharmaceutical grade Fish Oil.
Omega-6: From Evening Primrose and Starflower Oil
Omega-9: From Olive Oil (European Pharmacopoeia quality grade)
This advanced Wellwoman formula is designed to help support your daily nutritional needs during a hectic life. It includes a wide range of nutrients which give support to the areas of health which are most relevant to women.

Female Health

Wellwoman Plus includes specific nutrients which have been specifically chosen for their role in supporting all round female health including vitamin B6 which contributes to the regulation of hormonal activity. Plus iron which contributes to normal formation of red blood cells and haemoglobin, an important consideration during the monthly cycle. Also includes 400mcg folic acid which contributes to maternal tissue growth during pregnancy which is important if you're planning a pregnancy or there's a chance you might get pregnant.

Energy and Vitality

Because life rarely slows down, you can't afford to either. Wellwoman Plus provides a comprehensive range of micronutrients at levels specifically designed for women, including vitamins, B6 and B12 which contribute to normal energy release. The formula also includes folate, pantothenic acid and vitamin B12 as they contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, and is ideal for women who lead hectic lifestyles, juggling work, family and social commitments.

Skin, Hair and Nails

Most of us would like a little extra support to help look after our skin, hair and nails. Wellwoman Plus contains nutrients for your hair, skin and nails including vitamin C which contributes to normal collagen formation. Collagen is the substance that gives skin its elasticity. Biotin, niacin (vit. B3), zinc and riboflavin (vit. B2) are also included in the formula as they help contribute to the maintenance of normal skin. Zinc also contributes to the maintenance of normal nails and biotin contributes to the maintenance of normal hair.

Scientifically Balanced

Based on years of international published nutritional research, the Wellwoman Plus formula is ideally balanced for women. It even includes the exact level of Folic Acid (400mcg) recommended by the Department of Health for women from the start of trying to conceive until the twelfth week of pregnancy - because women of child-bearing age may need this nutritional support before they even know they are pregnant.
What We Thought:
Ive only been taking the Wellwoman Plus for a few days so am yet to notice a difference but im sure that I will.
The blister packs are similar to the Wellman, two different tablets to be taken each day. In the Purple pack the capsule contains, Micronutrients and in the Aqua pack the capsule contains, Fish oil, Evening primrose & starflower oil and Olive oil.
The capsules are quiet big however they are surprisingly easy to swallow (I find it difficult to swallow tablets at the best of times)!
You can purchase any of the above Vitabiotics Vitamins at Boots pharmacy or Superdrug pharmacy or check out the Vitabiotics Website.
