Reviewing a Multi Vitamin & Mineral in Powder Form

Arbonne's whole food multi vitamin & mineral supplement in powder form "dissolvable multi vitamin"

It doesn't matter how good a diet you have when food doesn't have the same level of nutrients in it as it did when our grandparents were our age.   This is one of the reasons why I've always thought of taking a multi vitamin and mineral supplement as a form of insurance - nutritional insurance so to speak.

The other reason is (although I know I've been writing about good nutrition a lot over the past year) because sometimes I don't make the best nutritional choices, I'm only human!  I have a sweet tooth and I also love me a cheeseboard!   Having said that I have been making much more healthier choices over the past 18 months as I've shared with you.

Why Did I Stop Taking a Multi Vitamin?


Now for years I took a multi vitamin and mineral tablet every single day, but I actually started to have problems swallowing them.  The tablets are so big, I can still swallow them if they're the right shape, but when they changed the tablets I used to take and the bottles were dark (which I realise is to keep the integrity of the ingredients intact) and the blister packs were shrink wrapped I just stopped getting them.

Luckily I discovered Greens Balance and this gave me lots of vitamins and minerals each day and I really noticed the difference when taking it.

So Do I No Longer Need a Vitamin & Mineral Supplement?


I still felt that a multi vitamin would've been a good idea, but I was eating well and took greens balance every day along with a good quality protein powder and fizz sticks.   When Arbonne introduced their whole food multi vitamin and mineral supplement I was really happy that it was in a powder form.

I tried it with water first as it was supposed to be tasteless - nothing is tasteless and although I couldn't say what it tasted like I wasn't overly happy with it.   I do have a protein shake at lunch time though so I diluted it in my shake and I couldn't taste it - mission accomplished!

My husband doesn't drink a shake so I got him to put it in a little tropical juice drink that he enjoys drinking and he liked it as well.

How Do I Feel After Taking This Supplement for a Couple of Months?


I don't feel a lot different, but everyone I've been working with has been really sick over the last few months and I haven't been so who knows if it's the multi vitamins or the greens balance or a combination.

What I can report is that I forgot to take them over a long weekend and I did notice my energy levels weren't as high as usual (but I also wasn't doing very much which could have made that difference).

In conclusion I don't know if a multi vitamin and mineral supplement makes a lot of difference, but I do like to take one as a form of nutritional health insurance.  I definitely recommend this powder form over a tablet as I believe it gets absorbed easier and it's a lot easier to swallow than some of the multi vitamin tablets I've had over the years.

  1. I have not been taking a multi-vitamin for many years. I agree that tablets such as these have gotten too big to swallow comfortably and I hate those blister packs! This multi-vitamin you describe in powder form does seem to be a good solution.

  2. An excellent alternative to taking those hard to swallow pills! I have trouble tolerating the iron content in the multi-vitamins. (at least we think it is the iron that makes me sick to my stomach) I take a childrens' vitamin everyday now, but I can definitely see the benefit in getting vitamins in powder form. That certainly might be a better solution for an adult.

  3. I enjoy your nutrition articles. Sounds like a good product you're featuring here. I sure agree on how improving eating habits can be challenging. I do take vitamins, lots lol. I've been on Keto as well since May 4th of this year and have lost 40 pounds so far. This way of eating agrees with me like nothing ever before. Thanks for the heads up on this product.

  4. Oh my it's nice to know that someone else has trouble swallowing those gargantuan pills. I take a multivitamin, but also have trouble swallowing it, so it's nice to know there is another form of vitamin to take it's place. Thanks for this.

  5. As I age, I find mega-pills harder and harder to swallow. And Arbonne is a great company. These could be a big help to many people!
