I was recently sent a 10 day supply of B Record Plus to review. B Record Plus is a food supplement containing a range of amino acids and vitamin B12. The manufacturers recommend you use it for times of temporary physical and mental fatigue e.g. exam stress, stress of modern living. They feel it’s just the thing to give busy mums a boost.
It was good timing as I was feeling run down, probably due to lots going on in our lives. We had our house on the market and were getting lots of viewings. I was having to juggle normal hectic family life, part time work, as well as the strain of keeping the house looking at it’s best all the time. I’d developed a mouth ulcer,conjunctivitis and a crop of spots: all sure signs for me that my body was feeling the strain.
What’s in it? It contains the recommended daily allowance of B12. B12 plays a key role in the normal functioning of the brain and nervous system as its involved in the metabolism of every cell in the body. As well as B12 it boasts 5 amino acids: L-carnitine, L-arginine, L-glutamine, L-serine and L-threonine. Amino acids are key to our metabolism too and one of their many functions is energy production in cells. The ingredients have been picked to act as a tonic, an aid to recuperation and an energiser.
How to use it? A 10 day course is made up of 10 10ml bottles of B Record Plus. You need to take them in the morning on an empty stomach. The bottles are easy to open and the liquid inside is sweet and pleasant to drink.
Any problems? I found remembering to take them on an empty stomach was the hardest part, as I had to remember to take them first thing before breakfast. It’s not always the time when I’m functioning best so having to remember to take them was a bit difficult, especially as they should be stored in a cool, dry and dark place. You could try a post it note on the kettle or whatever you reach for early in the morning.
Did it work? Yes, it did seem to help. My mouth ulcers and conjunctivitis cleared up within a few days and my spots started to fade, so I think my body was under less strain. I did have some more energy too, but I couldn’t say that it was a miracle cure.
Would I buy it? I would seriously consider trying it again if I was stressed and my body was feeling the strain.
