Five Reasons to Love Berocca

If you haven't heard, Berocca has been around for so many years already. In fact, every time I am about to get sick or simply feel sluggish, my friends would always tell me "i-Berocca mo na 'yan!" I didn't understand why they kept on saying such thing until I started taking Berocca two months ago.

For those not in the know, Berocca is a supplemental vitamins that combats physical tiredness, therefore keeping us more active and alert. Its unique combination of ingredients work in synergy to help our bodies release the maximum energy from the food we eat. Contrary to common knowledge, Berocca is NOT just for colds nor a normal, fancy orange juice.

To keep this post simple and easy to digest, let me summarize in five points why I love Berocca and how you -- yes you -- can love it too.

#1 It is specially formulated
Berocca contains a specific combination of vitamins including the following:
  • Vitamin B Complex - B vitamins help our body release energy from food to support vitality and stamina. It is important for our nervous system as it carries information to and from our brain.
  • Vitamin C - Vitamin C is needed to support a healthy immune system. It's an antioxidant, which helps protect our cells from premature aging.
  • Calcium - Calcium is significant in the excitation of the nerve and muscle cells important for muscle contraction.
  • Magnesium - Magnesium works with B vitamins to help our body release energy from food, and to keep our nervous system and muscles working properly.
  • Zinc - Zinc is essential for growth. It keeps our immune system and skin healthy.

#2 It is safe to drink
What I like about Berocca is that it doesn't contain sugar, caffeine or any artificial stimulants. It is recommended to drink one tablet (or even two if you feel like getting sick) every day, since Vitamin B and C are water-soluble. This means that these vitamins dissolve in water and are not stored; they are eliminated in urine. As such, we need a continuous supply of them in our diets.

Note: Do not be afraid if yellow discoloration will appear in your urine, because it is normal. It is due to Vitamin B2 content in Berocca.

#3 It is easy to prepare, fun to watch
For the past two months I've been drinking Berocca, I still find it fun to watch the tablet fizzle right after I put it on a glass of water.

Unlike other medicines that are powder solidified, Berocca uses effervescent tablets. As such, it gives off bubbles and has the sound similar to that of opening a sealed bottle of soft drinks. It also means that it's quickly absorbed by the body.

Here's a video I've recorded to demonstrate it.

#4 It is delicious, doesn't seem like a vitamin
Unlike other vitamins and supplements that taste bitter-y or look boring, Berocca is so delicious since it has an orange flavor. I drink one tablet every morning alongside with my breakfast, and drink one more at night whenever I feel like coming to a cold.

#5 It is helpful to keep me on full blast
Ever since I started taking Berocca, I feel lighter, better, and more alert. I noticed that it sort of helped me in carrying heavier weights at the gym, and enabled me to sustain prolonged physical and mental exercises. In addition, it prevents me from catching a cold.

My mom used to not believe me when I told her that Berocca makes me feel better. But after giving it a try, she now takes it everyday as well. She even told me that it tastes very well; not to mention enables her to sleep more soundly at night.

With 10 effervescent tablets contained in a sealed, small tube, Berocca is easy to carry around. I buy my Berocca tubes in twin packs (2 tubes per box), which costs Php330 or Php150/10 tablets. Buying two single tubes separately will cost a bit more.

Taking Berocca every day will surely help keep you on full blast too! Follow @BeroccaPH to know more about it. Berocca is manufactured by Bayer.
