Are You Feeling Alive ? {Blackmores Multi Review And Giveaway}

Posted on February 14, 2013


Routines have set in, school is back in full swing and it seems like there aren’t enough hours in a day to get everything done. Quite often I tend to feel run down and exhausted and I am not even halfway through the day. Technically, a nap would be perfect but also , I have two growing children. Naps went out of style for me back in 2003…technically.

With our busy lifestyles and the fact that we are time poor means our bodies may be missing out on essential  nutrients and vitamins we need to function properly and enjoy life on a day to day basis leaving us feeling stressed and anxious. A recent survey conducted by Blackmores has found that Aussies are busier than ever. Here are a few key stats to consider :

  • 94 percent reporting that they have woken tired in the last two weeks.
  • 88 percent believe life is getting busier
  • 65 percent of respondents reported they had skipped a meal in the last month due to time pressures.
  • 81 percent reported working through their lunchbreaks

Yep, looks like we are one busy bunch! So how do we better support our current lifestyles, how do we look after our personal well being better apart from regular exercise and healthy eating? That is where Blackmores step in. Their brand new ALIVE range promises increased energy, healthier metabolism and lowered stress levels among other great benefits. I have been using ALIVE  for the past 3 weeks and have observed a noticeable improvement in my anxiety levels as well as less brain fog. It’s a win!

A few other things to know about ALIVE :

  • Contains a blend of 20 fruits & vegetable powders
  •  Packed full of B vitamins which support cellular energy production
  • 1000IU of vitamin D3
  • Vitamins & minerals + antioxidants + enzymes

Please note, multivitamins should never be replaced for a healthy diet.
