I take a multivitamin and a calcium supplement, as I am concerned about osteoporosis when I am older. My grandmother has shrunk so much and has a lot of pain in her bones--I don't want to end up that way.

I rely on both my diet & supplements. I follow clean eating principals (this has changed me life) & while I know that I'm getting natural vitamins & minerals from my diet, I choose to take supplements to be sure I'm giving my body what it needs & for my muscles & bones because I lift pretty intensely in the gym 3 days a week .
I currently take: * Multi Vitamin * Vita C * Calcium w/ D * B Complex * Evening Primrose Oil (Gamma Lineolic Acid) * CLA (Conjugated Lineolic Acid) ** I also use protein powder
I'm not promoting or recommending these - we all have different needs. I'm just sharing w/ you what meets my needs. :)

I try to eat a well-balanced diet but when I notice that's not happening, I do take a multivitamin. I have other supplements such as magnesium, B Complex and C that I take only when I see my diet is lacking. It's too easy to get too much of them, which can be just as bad as not enough! Lorraine
They say it is better to be poor and happy than rich and miserable, but how about a compromise like moderately rich and just moody?
