Asda have reduced the price on these - right down to 40p. It is unusual to find vitamins for teenagers this cheap and even better to have Omega 3 (for brain function) - just what you need at exam time. They also contain zinc (help ward off coughs and colds). This is just a total bargain. Spotted them today - bought 12 packs on the spot! Listed online, so I assume that this is a national offer

Kids/Teens should not need these if they have the correct diet.

But most teens don't have a good diet do they? Get real, this is a good deal if you need it. Vote the deal, don't preach morals.:thumbsup:

Agreed. In a developed country, vitmains are rarely required

I spotted these just before aswell, they also had other ones in a purple container from age 7 upwards, also for 40p, i got 12 too, for myself as i dont eat alot of fishy foods where i would get omega three but do have a varied diet iykwim, excellent price :)

If this was the case, it wouldn't be a multi million pound industry. Good find to the OP, Hot From Me!! I'll be going tomorrow.

I'm sure you're all far more persuasive and will have no problem but a word to the wise - my daughter would not take these as they were really very big compared to the smartie/paracetamol size you'd expect, and they were dark green in colour.

:w00t: This has got to be the sweetest most innocent comment ever on this site :whistling:

The only harm this deal will cause is the loss of 40p. But looking at it another way, get teenagers worrying about this now and you have got them hooked for life.......to believe that they need extra supplements for the rest of their life. Brilliant.

Teens diet is appalling, unlike toddlers it is out of our control, they are growing into adults and make their own decisions about what they would like to eat. The Omega and brain food is tosh, but that does not stop the marketing guys, they are on a roll with that one.

You won't want to take a look at this site but just in case anyone is interested....

Please ignore the amateur nutritionists and cynics in this thread.

Multivits are a good idea for most people, especially teenagers, and omega oils are very beneficial.

I wouldn't bother. Some vitamins are only processed in the presence of others, so you won't be absorbing them. Also other vitamins/minerals work in tandem, so if you increase the amount of a specific one, lets say zinc, then you will need copper as well, because the levels will decrease in your body.

Lastly, if everyone had full test to see if you were deficient in anything, practically everyone will be. It's best to take a complete multivitamin and mineral supplement, and also omega 3-6-9 cap. Doing this will give you a noticeable effect within a month, most likely your skin, and your general state of mind.

Hmmm, just wondering about the modding/censorship on here!!!!

Posts supporting vitamins but not commenting on the deal are left in and those against them are deleted.

Surely all or non of the posts unrelated to this specific deal should have been deleted? It isn't hotiraniandeals is it?
#15
They also have the childrens 30 gummy bear vitamin c and vegetable supplement bears for
40p and the childrens orange vitamin c chewy tabs for 40p.

The mods like to make everybody play nicey-nice even if their viewpoint can be supported.
As for the deal, if even for the placebo alone, that's pretty cheep.

I wouldn't bother.

I have to agree with the comments regarding encouraging children that they need to pop pills to have a healthy lifestyle or that popping a pill is somehow an alternative to a healthy diet. Neither is true. There is some evdence that vitamin supplements may actively do harm but little/none that they do any good. Buying a product that has no beneficial effects other then placebo is a waste of 40p, but buying one that does the harm in terms of the message this gives to kids is much. much worse. I wouldn't give this to my kids if it were free.

I was referring to adults, would I give children pills every day, nope. Adults due to the work that they do, drinking, smoking e.t.c.

I am not going to argue for or against vitamin supplements, but the "complete multivitamin" is pointless. There are interactions between different elements, especially ions such as iron and calcium, but also with certain vitamins. So to get a good absorption, you would need to take at least two different pills at different times - one with iron, vitamin C etc and one with calcium, vitamin D etc...

Of course the complete "take this and stop worrying" pill is easier to sell, but it is also quite ineffective.

The supplement con-artists never let facts get in the way of a sale.
You make a good point.

Anyone who says vitamins are not required is talking rubbish.

unless eat a pefect diet , do enough excercise , get correct amount of sleep etc etc

I would say 80-90 of people in the uk don't do this so would benifit from vitamins

Thats not what the studies show- I'm guessing you just made up the bit about 80-90% of people.
As it happens the overwhelming majority of people in the UK with average diets get enough vitamins from their diet.
