Multivitamin, Super B-Complex, Grape Seed Complex (with green tea) Folic Acid, Magnesium, Vitamin D (less so in the summer) Vitamin E, Flaxseed Oil/Fish Oil/Omega 3,6,9, Calcium Citrate, Ginkgo (occasionally)
Sometimes a few more slip in there. I take so many mainly because I've always been a picky eater. I also have Celiac (wheat allergy/autoimmune disorder) so my body absorbs a lot less nutrients compared to most people.
I take them daily. I'm one of those folks that doesn't tend to eat much, and I get full very quickly. As a result, I'm pretty sure that I don't eat the required amounts of each food group. So I take vitamins. I know it's not the healthiest solution, but hey, that's just the way it is.
Every few days, I don't have a good diet and I bet most gmo crops aren't good for you. Also they spray pesticides and flouride right into the vedgetables. I doubt you are going to get enough vitamins. I try to take those vitamins that has a ton of different stuff in it.
Lots of foods also contains aspertame which isn't healthy either, not to mention there is flouride in the water. It's a good idea to be on a supplement program, your body needs it and your probally not getting enough of it from these processed foods. It's funny you think your eating healthy, but so many ppl are getting cancer due to these foods.
I take a multi vitamin/mineral supplement (A,B,C, calcium, fosfor, selenium, etc.), just to be sure. I eat fairly healthy, but I don't eat much raw foods like vegetables (salad) or fruit in general. Yeah, I know, I must discipline myself in at least eating my daily apple and drink my glass of orange juice.
Vitamin supplements are unnecessary for anyone that eats a reasonable diet.This. A majority of people taking vitamins don't realise they're probably pissing them all away.
But I'm going start taking Vitamin D during the winter months since Ireland doesn't get enough sunlight from around October to April to get your required daily intake(400IU). I also take zinc and vitamin E sometimes when my skin is recovering from a gash/cut.
Yes. Even with a normal diet, supplementation can be necessary for optimal health. The nutritional value of the store-bought food has gone to shit with all the gmo, pesticides, processing, storing and packaging that it has to go through just to get to the store.
People underestimate the enormous importance of vitamins. A multi a day keeps the doctor away.
@McGhee_the_Insomniac said:I'm no expert, but I have lost fifty pounds in the last year. Basically, I quit eating fast food and junk food like frozen dinners. Cut sugar way down. One of the biggest ways to do that is to quit drinking soft drinks. I use to drink Pepsi or Dr. Pepper 3 - 5 times a day. Now I may drink a little every few days. Moderation is the key. If you try to crash diet, you'll fail once your will weakens. It takes an overall lifestyle change. I drink more water and eat more fruits and vegetables. Also, some kind of physical activity. I practice a martial art three times a week and I do some hiking.Vitamin supplements are unnecessary for anyone that eats a reasonable diet.What would you describe as a reasonable diet? I'm curious, because I'm thinking of improving my own.
