Kate the doctor put me on to cenovis womens once daily some time ago when I was very stressed and run down. I still take one a day, and certainly notice the difference if I don't.

Judy :D

Hey ya kate . I take a multi vit and have for a while now. I find it helps to balance me out and i dont get so fatigued as much . Mine is a Blackmores and its released over an 8 hour period (sustained release or so they call it)

Hi Kate I took them for approximately 3 months and then one day I took one and had a violent reaction to it...I went off to the doctor (as it really scared me) and he laughed and said that my body didn't need them anymore, hence such a strong reaction!! That is what I mean by they are great if your body needs them :wink: .

hey there chelle

yeah a lot of things like that u cant take in circumstances like that. i got tinea when i was pregnant and used it for about a week before i found out that i wasnt supposed to use the cream whilst pregnant. best wishes for your conception!

hey ally

i will keep that in mind when i choose which one to try. i just think my body is lacking in certain nutrients at the moment which is why im so tired. we will see what happens when i go shopping :)

I take the Executive B Stress Formula.. I find it suits me a lot more because B vitamins are for energy production etc etc.. I use Cenovis Executive B Once Daily.. I definitely think it does help! I've compared the Centrum to some other Multivitamins eg Blackmores, Cenovis etc and I've found that the other brands tend to have more different vitamins and minerals and higher dosages of them!

I spent sooo long comparing the ingredients and stuff on the back of vitamin jars/packets :P There was one that seemed really good but d'you think I can remember which one? Noooo! Hahaha grrr!!!
I know the Swisse is a great brand, can get it from Priceline, chemists, National Pharmacies.. it's a bit more pricey than other brands but I've had it before and it's pretty damned good!
