So here's a question....

Monday, January 21, 2013

As I start eating alot better and exercising alot more I'm pretty unaware of what vitamins I should be taking besides a multivitamin. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    If you don't mind another outlook, the has an article and research showing vitamin pills aren't good for you:

    Yeah, any tests for deficiencies a a great idea.
I take the fish oils supplements as fish does not feature highly in my diet and I don't want to miss out on those oils.
As I have a bung knee I take glucosamine to help with joint health. Even if I didn't have a knee injury I'd still take it as carrying extra weight does put extra stress on the joints.

  Most doctors say almost everyone should be taking a D3 supplement. I like fish oil/Omega 3 as well. But just be careful, as some vitamins are contraindicated with medications you may be taking, some aren't absorbed in certain doses/if take with certain food. Ask your doctor to be sure. Good luck!

    I agree with a lot of the previous posts, a multivitamin should be more than enough for most. If you're concerned, for health reasons or feeling a little under the weather, check with your doctor. They'd be better equipped to suggest things more tailored to you.

    Never hurts to add an omega3 or omega6.

    I agree... a multi-vitamin should be enough. If you start feeling quite fatigued, check with you doctor, you may be short on vitamin D.

    One multi-vi should have you covered.

    I'd think a multivitamin should do it if you're eating a balanced diet. I've read that vegans should take extra B-12. Next time you go in for a physical, check with your doc. Lab work will reveal any deficiencies.
