Reviva - The Vitamin Conundrum

Recommended Posts

So, I hate my supplements, especially my multi Vitamins. I have the Kirkland brand from costco and they are HUGE. If it was just that one pill, I could probably such it up, but as for most, they are just part of the deal. There is also the B12, my 2 "hair and Nails" (with Biotin) and then I take Zyban - those are all big dumb pills. I am also taking D3 and E but those are the soft caps which I don't have a problem with.

Now, my main problem is that I really have the hardest time getting those big ones down. I dread taking my pills in the morning (but it'a not like it is better in the afternoon) because let's be honest, who wants to start the day gagging - or gag at any time of the day?

I checked at costco after a lot of people recommended the MultiVites but their Vitamin panel is just really poor I think. I feel like I would have to double, if not triple the dose to get to where I need to be. I looked at some of the other ones, like Flintstone complete and they are a little better but there I am worried that they are those chalky chewables that are just a different way of miserable.

I then took a look at the liquid vitamines, and they have a product called Reviva which looks like it has a lot of good stuff: http://www.revivanutrition.com/product_more.html#p1

Has anyone tried this? The Vitamin panel is still not comparable to the big old daily multis because it is better than the MultiVites. I will still think I'll double up or at least get 3 tablespoons (or a shot glass and imagine I am doing shots at 7am!!!) You can just dump it in your beverage and drink it that way.

It has a lot of goodies I like the fact that it actually has 4 g of Fiber because getting in Fiber is difficult. It has Super Fruits and antioxidants, zinc, ginko biloba, lycopene - here is the full panel:


What's the experience with liquid vitamins? Is anyone taking this product?

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
