SmartyPants Vitamins: A Smart Addition to Your Routine


If you are a runner, simply heading out and pounding the pavement isn’t going to get you to your peak performance. Rather, runners must supplement their running with good nutrition which includes utilizing a strong vitamin component to their diet. SmartyPants Vitamins offers runners several different options of vitamins available all with the same quality ingredients and formulated to take your running to the next level.

SmartyPants targets those nutrients toughest to get from food, acquire the very best available forms of those nutrients, and combine them all into one (tasty) supplement. SmartyPants vitamins contain only natural ingredients that are not genetically modified (non GMO).Every bottle includes three delicious flavors of gummies (lemon, strawberry banana and orange) with no synthetic colors and no artificial flavors, sweeteners, preservatives or any other junk.

At SmartyPants Vitamins they are all about simplifying health. That’s why they make the Good Gummy, delicious and premium all-in-one complete gummy vitamins that combine nutrients like omega 3s, soluble fiber, vitamins D3 + B12 that are toughest to get in the right amount from our diets.

I have tried both the Adult Complete and the Adult Complete + Fiber and both are great ways to supplement the nutrition required to be at the top of your game. The Adult Complete + Fiber allows you that little extra boost you may need to help things along but does so in a less offensive way than other OTC options available.

SmartyPants has a variety of different products you will want to check out including men’s and women’s vitamins, prenatal vitamins and vitamins for the younger runners in your home.
