The only supplements I take are the ones my Dr. Recommended me take, iron for my anemia, daily vitamin without iron, and vitamin d because of a deficiency I have in it. Oh and I do take biotin because I've heard its good for skin, hair and nails and I want to grow my hair long for locks of love.

The only supplements that I take are those which my endro has recommended for helping with my glucose control and so far so good, been taking chromium for going on 5 years now and I do notice a difference between when I don't take it and when I do for how my glucose levels behave.

But other wise I just take a general daily multi vitamin that rounds things out for me that was recommended by my dietician

The only supplements I have are the ones that my Dr and my Dietitian have prescribed. Altho' supplements can be beneficial used appropriately, a lot of people take them unnecessarily, and some can even cause health problems or aggravate already existing ones. They can also interact very negatively with some medications. . For this reason most are best run by a Health Professional first.

If you are taking supplements in conjunction with eating healthy and exercising which one is making you lose weight? The healthy eating and exercise. My opinion is that supplements are unnecessary for weight loss, and your results will come from a healthy lifestyle.


There are no shortcuts. No magic bullets. No secret spells. What works is hard work, dedication, and a daily dose of chocolate.
