Review ~ Dr Dunner PhytoVitality supplements
I’ve been using Dr Dunner PhytoVitality most days for a few weeks now. Admittedly, I don’t always remember to take a capsule and so from that alone it’s hard to say whether they make any difference or not. I’ve also had a couple of curries in that time, both containing turmuric so there hasn’t been much of a ‘control’ element to this review.
What is PhytoVitality?
Dr Dunner conducts research around the world to find medicinal plants and they’ve produced this particular supplement to maintain a normal immune system.
Did they make any difference?
There have been a few days where I’ve felt like something’s maybe brewing, where I’ve had a sore throat, have taken throat sweets and the discomfort has subsided.
This is the sort of thing that you have to build into a daily routine because, for me anyway, it’s easy to forget to take them.
These capsules are not difficult to take because they’re small and they don’t taste unpleasant either. You know how sometimes a paracetamol can get slightly lodged in your throat when you swallow it? Well that didn’t happen with these.
I like that you can see the blend inside the capsule and this makes them see more natural which, presumably they are. In fact the ingredients show they’re natural: turmeric extract, green tea and pepper extract, vitamin C among others. The packaging tells me that by combining turmeric and pepper, the absorption is increased.
They’re well packaged with a picture of the natural ingredients on the box; it’s a handy size for sliding into your bag in case you forget to take them at breakfast)
What’s not so good?
With an RRP of £25.99 for 60 capsules (around 40p a day), they’re affordable, though I’d be more likely to buy them if they were around £15. That said, they’re gluten-free and suitable for vegans so that could be a good selling point for some people.
Considering I don’t often have curry and don’t tend to cook with turmeric or any of the other ingredients, these capsules could be the next best thing.
Do you take any supplements to boost your immune system? I’d love to know! Comment below or tweet me @AllSortsHere.
