Seven Seas Perfect7 Woman Supplements*

A few weeks ago now, I was offered the opportunity to try Seven Seas' newly-lauched Perfect7 Woman* supplements, which (as the name suggests!) claim to support seven aspects of women's health from skin, hair and nails through to the brain. I was sent a 30-day duo pack; the daily dose consists of one tablet and one capsule, and this pack contains 30 of each. I'm generally quite wary of supplements and the like, but Seven Seas is a well-known and reputable brand, so I decided to give them a go.

Packaging-wise, there's plenty of information about the potential benefits - and, importantly if you're me and like to know where claims are coming from, the nutrient(s) behind the claim. For example, the supplements contain Zinc which is shown to support the skin and nails, whilst Vitamin B2 is important for vision. Personally, I was most interested in the benefits for my skin (as it's very oily and prone to blemishes, especially just before my period) and the regulation of hormonal activity - again, regarding my skin, and also PMS and the migraines I get whilst on my period.

Now I'm just going to put this out there: the tablets and capsules are huge. I'm the sort of person who can swallow paracetamol dry, but I really needed a good drink with these, which is definitely something to consider if you struggle to swallow tablets. Aside from that, I found it quite easy to get into the routine of taking these each morning with a glass of water or OJ, and actually only missed one day out of the 30 I was using the supplements - which is pretty impressive for me! I noticed a slight fishy aftertaste on a few days (maybe four or five days out of the 30, so not a huge number) which I presume is from the Fish Oil capsule, which wasn't exactly unpleasant but wasn't unbearable, either; I found that making sure I had plenty to drink reduced this problem.

But did I see any benefit? Honestly, I think it's difficult to say from just trying them for one month - particularly because my cycle is excessively long, so I didn't have a period whilst taking them. That said, I do feel like I had more energy, and I do think my skin was better - less oily and fewer spots. Obviously it's difficult to be sure from such a short trial, but I'd certainly be interested to see whether the effects hold up in the longer-term. Other benefits, such as those to the brain and heart, are more difficult to notice, but it's obviously really important to take those into consideration, too.
Seven Seas Perfect 7 Nutrition Information
Seven Seas Perfect7 Woman supplements are priced at £10.49 for the 30-day pack at Boots, where they are often on a 3-for-2 offer, so you could stock up on a few months' worth and save yourself a bit of cash. I'm strongly considering picking up a couple more packs next time I'm in town as I'm keen to see whether I'd notice any further benefits to taking the Perfect7 supplements regularly. Do you take any multivitamins or supplements? Would you try Perfect7?

  1. I would give it a go because its a reputable brand and I would want to seen it the claims are true. I have not tried many suppliments before because I have always been skeptical

  2. I do take a supplement (not this one) and I think they can help. Sometimes you simply don't realise what is making you feel bad - and it's as simple as a bit more of a particular vitamin or mineral. Extra selenium works wonders for me.

  3. OMG the tablets do look pretty big. I do try and take cod liver oil tablets sometimes but have struggled with the size of them sometimes. I think that who quickly the results show will also depend on peoples existing diets too.

    1. They're HUGE Melanie, haha! Great point about diet though, I hadn't even considered that - I generally eat pretty well anyway so maybe that's why :) xo

  7. I would definitely be interested in trying these. You've just reminded me that I have some Seven Seas cod liver oil in my cupboard - I need to remember to take them during these dark winter months. The vitamin D is really needed this time of year especially as I live so far north (same latitude as the southern tip of Greenland!)
