I don't really know, I have always taken them so I can't remember when I didn't.

Sometimes I take them regularly for months at a time and sometimes I don't. Have never noticed any difference.

Not really, I just kind of blindly assume it's a good thing to do.

I don't remember to take mine..usually once or twice a week...it might help if I would.

I don't think it makes a significant difference in the way I feel, but I do it anyway just in case. emoticon

10 yrs ago, when I first started taking them regularly, I went from grey blue to true blue eyes.

YES, I FEEL A HUGE DIFFERANCE WITH THE B VITAMINS. WHEN I RUN OUT, AND I HAVEN'T TAKEN THEM FOR A WEEK OR SO, I AM NOTICEBLY MORE TIRED AND IRRITABLE.

NO, I don't feel any different and 3 months of taking them didn't improve my magnesium

Yes I take them everyday... But the only effect I see is in my head... U know, the PLACEBO EFFECT...

I am not seeing the RESULTS but I feel better after taking them.....

I take my multivitamin every day out of habit. I don't feel better or worse.

However, it must do something because if I take it on an empty stomach I feel terrible!

If you would like to take it a bit farther and get the vitamin B-12 injection it is a major energy booster!!!

i notice a big difference with the B Vitamins. I feel better mentally, and also, I have more energy when I take them on a consistent basis. emoticon

They don't make me feel any different, so I don't take them!

I dont know about feeling a difference but its one less thing for me to think about *meaning I dont have to worry if I fall short on vitamen enriched foods*

I take a liquid B Complex a few times per week and alternate with my One-a-Day women's. When I take the B supplement, I really notice a difference. Otherwise, not so much.

I take a Women's One a Day. I have taken them for about 5 years now. I can definitely tell the difference when I do not take them for a couple of days.

I do take a multi vitamin every morning. I am doing atkins, and it's recommended to take a supplement. I don't know how big a difference it makes, but I feel great :)

Yes, miss it when I don't take it.

It shouldn't make any difference. It doesn't for me, but maybe if you had a real deficiency of something it make make you feel better.

No, I don't take them anymore. If you eat a clean food diet, which incorporates lots of fruits, vegies and protein you will get most all of the vitamins, minerals and other nutrients your body needs. A supplement is just that, a supplement if you are not getting your nutrients from your food.

I do. I take the weight management variety in the generic form...usually target brand or kroger brand. I really notice my appetite being more under control.

Yes I do! I found a pretty good one made by NOW foods called ADAM mens multivitamin. It's well rounded even though it is rather large.

I don't. I thought I was supposed to, but thanks to ARMSPORTS for explaining!

Never did take them. I do take vitamins but not a multivitamin. So to answer your question I do not know but do not believe it would increase your energy/stamina.

Vitamins don't give you energy per se, though some of the B Complex group are necessary to obtain energy from the foods you eat. Unless you are deficient in these (which fortunately most people aren't in our society) you won't "feel' any different from taking them. As you may know, very high doses of some B vitamins (B6,B12, etc.) can increase stimulatory neurotransmitter release in the brain for a few hours, hence their inclusion in energy drinks like Monster and Red Bull. But the effect doesn't last long. A lot of what people feel from vitamins is quite frankly the placebo effect. But a good multivitamin can serve as a "safety net" if you will to make up for some dietary inadequacies.

I don't take a multi vitamin. I take a Super B Complex, Vit E, and a Vit C (when I remember). I feel great when I take them. More energy and just perkier. When I don't take them I feel sluggish. I can tell that I haven't taken them and I kick myself the entire time for not remembering to take them.
I think the goofiness just comes from having more energy.

I have just started taking a multivitamin (centrum). I can't tell if its the vitamin making me feel good, but the past couple of days, i have been in a much better mood. I have been acting goofy and i have so much energy. Am i imagining things? How do you feel when you take a multivitamin compared to when you don't. Thanks!
