Do you take any daily vitamins and/or supplements? I do from time to time, but admittedly I often forget. I feel like I should be taking a multivitamin because I don’t eat as nutritiously as I should. I also feel like I need a little extra “boost” when it comes to my immune system. I work around little children who have a tendency to cough and sneeze without covering their face. I won’t even get started on the germs I must touch on a daily basis (I do wash my hands many times per day).
Aside from forgetting to take my vitamins or supplements, I often find some of them to be way too big or they leave a gross taste in my mouth.
I once wasted A LOT of money on a supplement because the pills were HUGE – too huge to swallow. I was not about to cut them up into smaller pieces, so I never used them. They are collecting dust on the shelf until I figure out what to do with them.
Are you familiar with the 5-Hour Energy Shot? It’s usually sold near check out at many stores. It’s an energy shot that is available in different flavors. I’ve written about the brand in the past when they were hosting their “Yummification” contest.
Co-founder Tom Morse has recently launched a new product – one that might be of interest to many people. This time it’s not a shot but rather a spray.
Introducing Instavit – a new supplement solution you take as an oral spray. All you need to do is spray 4 sprays or less in your mouth (on or under your tongue) and you are done. I have heard that taking vitamins/supplements under your tongue (sublingual) is the fastest way to get them into your system. I have taken liquid supplements from my doctor that I had to drop under my tongue.
Unlike traditional supplement pills and energy drinks, Instavit allows individuals to customize and/or pace their caffeine and nutrient intake according to their individual needs. Plus, because of its sophisticated formulation, all of its products are free from unnecessary fillers and binders.
Instavit sprays are tasty, calorie free and portable. No more huge or gross tasting pills to swallow.
The sprays are currently available in the following formulas:
- Instant Energy
- Sweet Dreams
- Immune Strength
- Daily Health
- Vitamin D
- Vitamin B-12
Instavit sent me some samples to try out for myself.
I like that they are NOT pills and therefore do not require any thinks to drink in order to get it down. If you are always on the go, like me, you might not have a beverage handy to help you swallow a vitamin or supplement. With Instavit you just spray and go.
The portability is also something that I find unique to this product. The spray bottles are small in size – a wee bit bitter than a traditional tube of lipstick. They can be easily tucked into a backpack, purse, pocket, glove compartment or kept in your desk at work. They are also great when traveling because they take up so little room. They can easily be kept in your cosmetic bag or inside the pockets in your luggage.
As far as taste, they taste fine to me. I especially appreciate that there is no bitter aftertaste.
If you follow the recommended dosage each spray bottle should last roughly one month (24 – 28 dosings).
As for the flavors, they have a fruity taste to them. They are not bad at all. They are a little sweet, which many people might enjoy.
I am not a doctor or scientist, so I cannot provide you with any “technical” stuff. All I can tell you is that I use them, I enjoy them, and I find them more convenient to take than traditional pills.
I have taken a sublingual B-12 supplement (I’m anemic) and I find the Instavit is better tasting and there is less of it I need to take. The drops make a “pool” of B-12 under my tongue, which tastes gross. The spray seems like it’s barely there. I spray four quick sprays and I’m done.
I’ve taken the Instant Engery spray from Instavit. I honestly don’t notice much of a difference. However I am anemic (both iron and B-12) so that might have something to do with it.
I’ve been taking the Sweet Dreams spray before bed (this one only requires two sprays). I don’t necessarily fall asleep faster, but when I do fall asleep I feel like I sleep better (I don’t toss and turn or wake up several times per night like I usually do). I also find that I am less groggy in the morning. With this spray I don’t have a hard time getting out of bed in the morning or find it hard to wake up.
As for the other sprays, I don’t know how they work (it’s not something you can “see” results). All I know is I take them daily and I am more likely to remember to take them because they are quick and easy to do. Plus I keep them on my desk so when I see them I remember to take them.
I’m all for this new way of taking vitamins/supplements. It works for me!
