Frutels are a nifty and yummy newish product that has been created to help fight your acne from the inside out. They contain a plethora of vitamins and minerals that your body uses to fight acne – the full spectrum of B vitamins, Vitamin E, Vitamin C, Zinc, Choline, Inositol, and two Herbal components that are a mystery to me at this point (but I have sent an email for more info, so hopefully I can update with some later).
From Frutels, about the beginnings of their company:
Frutels was born in the kitchen. Ellie Sawits, a scientist by training, developed acne as an adult while working on Wall Street. Taking a page from the long-standing tradition of research into the function of vitamins and minerals in the human body. First treating herself and then her own children, Ellie realized the broad applicability of her formula for acne-sufferers. She found a vehicle for her fomula in gummy candy, as it is one of the most popular and familiar candies for teens.
Frutels are sugar free – so don’t let that stop you. With the inclusion of the B vitamins, they also have a “vitamin-y” smell when you open the canisters, but they taste great. I am used to taking B-vitamins, so the smell doesn’t bother me at all, in fact, I rather like it.
I have a one month supply ($24.95 from Amazon) and am going to try them and see what I think – the only caution I have is that if you take vitamins already, be sure you aren’t taking too much of any fat soluble vitamin. I may be mistaken here, but I don’t think there is anything in here that you can’t take on top of a good multi-vitamin, but always do your research before adding another supplement to your diet.
Have you tried these? I’d love to know your thoughts, as always. :)
