Good multivitamin...but just quite pricey.
on December 20, 2011
I agree with the other reviewers assessment: I get dizzy if I don't eat a big enough meal before I take this. I noticed that if I don't eat anything, the nausea effect occurs for the first 30 minutes from when I take this. My resolution:
1) I eat a good meal with the multivitamins
2) I wait about 45 minutes to 1 hour before I actually start my workout
3) Replenish with fluids after the workout
While urinating, a Neon-yellow color is expected. Here's my reasoning to explain this:
You're body absorbs the multivitamins it needs through your system. Whatever is NOT needed is EXPELLED in your pee. It doesn't mean you have a UTI (urinary tract infection) or some adverse side effect. It just means your body doesn't need those particular vitamins.
Now, be careful with what you read on the body. You won't lose fat just taking the multivitamin. It's a Dietary Supplement to help you. And it's quite effective with this and workout.
I say this as a person who has been taking this vitamin for at least a year. It works pretty well when I work out....and it isn't as effective if you don't. And it's basically buying the multivitamins for $30 a month. I'm currently searching for another multivitamin that is just as effective, but a bit cheaper. It gets quite expensive after a while. $30 x 12...$360 a year. Is it really worth spending that much? I'll let you decide.
I'm hoping you gain a better idea about this multivitamin. Best wishes on your journey to a healthier lifestyle!
So I found another multivitamin that I'm actually quite satisfied with. It does have lower caffeine intake. GNC's Mega Men Energy and Metabolism works great. I've been taking this over about 10 months now and I enjoy it. Compared to this product (300 mg of caffeine), GNC has about 160.
I was unaware of how much caffeine this product had until I started getting massive migraines. Once I ran out, my body was craving the mass amount of caffeine it had (basically going through withdrawal).
Let's break it down in a simple way how much caffeine Beachbody's multivitamin has:
1 can 12 oz. of coke (regular)= 34 mg.
1 serving (2 pills) of this multivitamin= 300mg
300mg/34mg= 8.82 mg
So, basically, a person consumes ALMOST 9 CANS of Coke (minus the sugar)in a SINGLE DAY.
I tapered my caffeine intake to the Mega Men multivitamins...no migraines here. As a result of Beachbody's Multivitamin effects, I had to drop my rating from 4 to 3 stars.
I've also heard great things about OPTIMEN and OPTIWOMEN multivitamins. It's also a bit cheaper than the thirty dollars you spend here.
Well, thank you for taking the time to read my review and once again, I wish you all the best to a healthier lifestyle.
