I have a hard time ingesting adult vitamins without getting nauseous. I have to bracket a pill-taking between eating two hours beforehand and not exercising two hours afterwards. I don’t plan ahead very well, so this meant I skipped taking a vitamin more often than not. I found that I can chomp down a child’s […]
