I am not particularly lucky when it comes to giveaways. I have tried joining a lot of them since the year started and never won anything. It’s fine really. Joining giveaways is fun and I get to see, read and get inspired by blogs of other people. But when I really like to win the prizes at stake at a certain giveaway, I cross my fingers and hope that maybe, just maybe, the stars would magically collide and make me win. And sometimes, it works!
I was one of the winners of Stef dela Cruz's Berocca giveaway and my prize arrived the other day. I wasn’t home when it was delivered and I didn’t have the chance to open it until today.
Berocca is an effervescent tablet that makes a refreshing orange tasting drink when dissolved in a glass of water. I was really intrigued about this product because it’s a vitamin that I can actually “drink”. I am the type of person who really hates meds because I find it really hard to swallow them. I remember one time when I went to the dentist and she handed me two capsules of Mefenamic Acid and a glass half-filled with water, I was like, “Are you trying to kill me?!” lols. Don’t ask me how I managed to swallow them both. :p
Going back, Berocca helps in maintaining proper function of the nervous system during periods of stress. Each tablet contains Vitamin B complex, Vitamin C, Calcium, Magnesium and Zinc. It does not contain sugar, caffeine or artificial stimulants. It can be taken daily or as directed by your doctor!
According to the drug literature that came with my pack of Berocca, it is normal to have a yellow discoloration of urine after taking this due to its Vitamin B2 content. Also, people suffering from hemochromatosis, thalassemia or sideroblastic anemia should not take this product. It is a must that we read the drug lit before taking any supplements/drugs or if possible, it is best to consult your doctor first.
I really like the tumbler that is included in my loot bag. It has a straw! #lols. I always bring water whenever I go to work so this would be really useful to me.
And the bag? It could serve as my handy dandy lunch box container. I just don’t know where I would use the nametag so I guess I’ll be keeping it in my drawer for the meantime.
Have you tried Berocca already? I've seen that it's available at Mercury drugstore for around 180php-ish per pack. :)
