Here we are in the new year, and like I promised myself, I am going to get healthy this year and lose some poundage and get healthy. Thanks to Centrum, I can keep my resolution of taking more vitamins and ‘get my juice on.’ I know how important vitamins are, and I need to get into the habit of taking them. Not only for my inner health, but also for the outer health. If I want to stay looking like I am in my 20s, (even if they are late 20s) vitamins have been proven to help you look 10 years younger!
ProNutrients is a new line of dietary supplements launched by the makers of Centrum multivitamins, and is formulated to naturally work with a multivitamin.
The line includes Omega-3, Probiotic, and Fruit & Veggie—three supplements that support health and well-being. Each supplement is backed by the nutritional expertise of Centrum, identifying the right ingredients to take consumers’ nutrition to the next level.
Centrum Specialist Vitamins
In addition to the ProNutrients launch, Centrum debuted Centrum Specialist™, a line of enhanced multivitamins that is aimed at specific health priorities adults want to target.
Centrum Specialist multivitamins with specific benefits includes Prenatal, Vision, Energy and Heart.
I chose the Centrum Specialist Heart because I liked that it is a complete multivitamin that is specially enhanced with B vitamins that also includes folic acid, and antioxidants. It helps to support a healthy heart, circulation and maintain healthy blood pressure within a normal range. This is really important to me because I don’t think women pay enough attention to their heart, and heart disease is almost as rampant with women as it is men. For me this is scary because I had hypertension when I was 25 and I was not even overweight. I have watched it very carefully since then without any problems, but I know with age it can become a concern again, so I am excited about this vitamin that is specific to my heart and circulation needs.
I am also interested in the Centrum Energy because of the higher levels of B vitamins and Ginseng. Or, the Centrum Specialist Vision since it is the only complete multivitamin with higher levels of lutein1 with the addition of zeaxanthin to help healthy vision, support sharpness and improve your eye’s response to glare. I have had glasses and contacts since I was in second grade, so any vitamin that is specific to help keep my eyes healthy sounds good to me. I also am excited to try Centrum Specialist Prenatal for when I get pregnant, and a few months before. If of course has Folic Acid and also a DHA softgel.

I was able to put together a juice recipe because nothing spells out health like a freshly made juice or smoothie. I wanted to take the opportunity to use the probiotic powder to see how it tasted. This was perfect timing because I just got off of anti-biotics and those things can really kill all bacteria, even the good bacteria in your body. You need a probiotic to help restore your system and build your immune system back up.
I just got a new juicer and holy cow I love it so much. Just in case you were wondering, I highly recommend the Cuisinart CJE-1000-Watt 5-Speed Juicer
I call this my yummy antioxidant smoothie.
