Tonic or multivit
Dear Doc,

Guess I'm a typical woman.....30 years, married, working 9-5, mom to 2 beautiful boys (3 years and 5 months) and I feel physically and mentally exhausted. I'm still breastfeeding (morning & evening only). I work and have exams in 7 weeks but I find that I'm not able to concentrate long enough to actually study. I've also tried getting a bit more active by running, but this just makes me more tired. Still trying to lose 8 kg's but not having any luck.
I think I need a multivitamin of sorts but since there's so many on the market I wouldn't know what's best for me. I need something that's safe for baby, stops the fatigue, gives me some energy and allows me to study. Any suggestions?
Thank you!

Hi Gabby

YES! Lots of Bio-Strath Elixir or Tablets every day three times per day for at least the next 6 weeks and then reduce it to once or twice a day. Avoid stimulants such as sugar and caffeine as well as alcohol. Drink at least 2.4 l of water daily and take time to rest. Without rest, sleep, exercise, good food, water and a heart that is content, you can not have abundant energy. It is all part of being well and healthy. If needs be, take Ginkgoforce from the A Vogel range to help you with concentration and attention. Both these products are absolutely fine to take if you are breast feeding. You can even give it to your children to help keep them well. It is safe for all people of all ages.

Your local pharmacy or health shop stock the products.

Kind regards.
