There are so many great benefits that come from taking vitamins! There is a lot of nutrients our body needs that our diet is most likely lacking. Turning around your diet to fit in all of those nutrients can be a difficult task, which is why I started looking into vitamins. I have done a lot of research and decided I wanted to find vitamins that were mostly, if not completely, made with natural ingredients or had vitamins that came from actual fruits and veggies. Again, it was a difficult task… until one day when I stumbled upon Olly Vitamins in Target. At first it was the packaging honestly, that drew me in. I am such a sucker for pretty packaging! It is honestly a huge part of marketing that I think sometimes can be overlooked… I actually sort of appreciate when brands acknowledge it. Plus, these vitamins were taking up just about half of the aisle, placed smack dab in the middle of the rest, I just couldn’t resist! When I finally walked over to check them out, I saw just how many types of vitamins Olly has to choose from, ranging from beauty to sleep vitamins, even some options for the kids! But of course, because of my recent inclination towards vitamins that come from whole foods, I chose the woman’s super foods multi that contains blueberry, pomegranate, acai, watercress, grape, beet, elderberry, tamarind, wheatgrass and papaya (which they offer for kids and men, as well). After doing some further research into the Olly brand, I discovered that actually all of their vitamins are made using all natural ingredients. One of the coolest things about them, in my opinion, is that they also include natural bioactives, like plant-based phytonutrients, which help ward off disease and keep your body functioning properly (they come from things such as whole grains or tea). They also include antioxidant extracts from cocoa and green tea… remember all of the awesome benefits of antioxidants from green tea that I’ve mentioned before? If not, read more here!
So, I am sure by now you are eager to hear my review of these vitamins… don’t worry, I am just as eager to tell you about them! When I first opened them up, the classic vitamin smell made it’s way to my nose and I was a little worried since they are gummies that I’d have to endure the flavor longer compared to merely popping a pill (I usually would choose a pill form when taking vitamins, but most of Olly’s vitamins are gummies). But boy, was I surprised by the taste!! They are yummy. I got worried I’d be tempted to finish the bottle off as a snack lol! The suggested serving is two gummies per day, meaning the bottle of 60 would last a month. I take one in the morning and one at night, but you can take them together, or even just take one a day. I love knowing I am fueling my body with all of the awesome nutrients jam-packed into the little gummies! And who could resist, knowing that these don’t only help our insides, but our outside appearance as well… especially Olly’s beauty or skin vitamins. One more awesome things about this brand is that they have a monthly subscription. I am the queen of monthly subscriptions, I love their convenience! Check out their subscription service here. Let me know in the comments if you have ever tried Olly vitamins and let me know which is your favorite! I would love to try the other vitamins that they offer.
