Comments about GNC Women's Ultra Mega Active Multivitamin, Timed Release Caplets, 28 ea:
I've been using GNC Women's Ultra Mega Active Multivitamin for about two months. First, the negative. I guess due to the herbal ingredients, the pill can sometimes be hard on my stomach. I have to make sure to take them with a meal to avoid feeling nauseated about a half hour after taking them. It gets pretty bad when I don't have anything else in my stomach when they dissolve. But, now for the good part. They do give me a push of energy to get through the day when I don't something as harsh as a cup of coffee. I take it around lunch time so the energy carries me through the afternoon or a workout. It's definitely not as strong a coffee, but if you're not completely desensitized to caffeine and similar substances, you will feel it once the pill works its magic. I used to work at a big coffee chain and had grown a pretty high tolerance to coffee, but I still feel the difference these vitamins make for about two to three hours. I recommend taking both (one serving) at once for best effects. Although not advertised as such, having these pills to give me an extra push in the gym has helped me to rack up over 30 hours of high intensity cardio and 642,500 pounds lifted in one month (computer program at the gym kept track of that for me). I also lost unwanted fat around my belly and lowered my total body fat percentage. I don't know by how much, but I do know that I lost the cellulite on my upper arms. So, yes, even if it means I have to time when I take these to keep my stomach calm, they are great. I recommend them highly. Oh, almost forgot the smell. Get over it! It does have a strong fruity smell when you open up the pill bottle the first few times, but that goes away after a while, well, it gets less. If you read the herbal ingredients, you'll see that it's better to accept a bit of a "natural" smell than not take these high potency vitamins.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
