There are other non-dairy milks than are not made with nuts or soy.
Hemp milk
Oat milk
Rice milk
Coconut milk
(some of these products are called "beverage" rather than "milk" 'cuz of laws.

there may be others but I can't think of any now.

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

Annie thanks so much for all the information. I have written all the information down for the next time I can get to the Health Food Store.

I do eat fairly well. I do eat soy but would like to reduce this. My hd has a nut allergy so do not like useing Almond milk and I do not use any dairy.

I am now trying to get the nutrient numbers to work out better but the calcium I know needs to be supplimented as well. I want to start out with the probiotic and see how it goes before adding anything else in.

Thanks again for the info. It is greatly appreciated.

Probiotics are a great place to start when thinking about supplementing your diet; especially if you are lactose intolerant. The best probiotics are the ones that warn on the label to keep refrigerated. this means that the manufacturer really cares about the viability of the live bacteria in the product. Also it is best to get no less than 30 billion organisms per daily dose--even more is better. ALSO, it is really important to take a probiotic that contains several strains of bacteria; not just one or two because different bacteria work on separate areas of your gut.

For instance you will want to see these things listed:
Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterium bifidum, Lactobacillus plantarum, Lactobacillus salivarious, Lactobacillus casei, Lactobacillus paracasei, Lactobacillus rhamnosus, Bifidobacterium breve, Bifidobacterium longum, Streptococcus thermophilus

...or at least several of those things. I take a capsule that has all of them at a 50 billion count. The reason you want to have a high count of bacteria is that between bottling and delivery many of the little bacteria guys will have died so you want to start with the most possible.

I have experienced a great difference in how my tummy (stomach/intestines) feels since I have been taking probiotics regularly. Digestion is a breeze. But eating well is key too; you can't expect any pill, no matter how good, to make up for poor eating habits.

Another supplement that we all need pretty desperately is vitamin D. You absolutely MUST read the label and be sure you are getting "D3" not "D2" as it is the superior type. I find it easy to use liquid vitamin D3 drops which, I believe, is also the best for assimilation. I live in dark, dreary Oregon and I spend a lot of time indoors so I take 10,000 IU a day. If you live in a sunny location and you are out in the sun for an hour or more a day then you are getting most all the vit D you need right there. So you have to judge for yourself how much to take. The best way to know how much you need is to get tested.

Hope this helps. there are plenty of other supplements that are a great addition to your diet. Keep asking questions and you'll get plenty of answers

I do not take any supplements on a regular basis. I know I do not get enough of a lot of things but do not know where to start.

I am really interested in finding out more about probiotic supplements. I am very lactose intolerent so do not eat any dairy.

Do you take any probiotics and how has it changed your symtems?

I take a Multi Vit., D3, Cal. Citrate with D, Omega 3, Magnesium. (I think that's all)
It's difficult to get enough protein since I'm allergic to eggs, (I've been told), corn, milk, and a few other things lower on the list. I supplement with Luna Protein bars and Musclemilk Light or MLO Rice Protein with Almond Breeze milk. I also drink OJ with calcium and D added.

My daily list consists of taking a Multivitamin (not vegan but curious and may start), Vitamin D3, B-100 and SOMETIMES evening primrose oil.

I currently eat enough fish & flax to not have to supplement my omegas and drink calcium fortified OJ (I am lactose INTOLERANT).

Does anyone have any recommendations for vegan/vegetarian multivitamins? I have a few local stores that make their own (co-ops, mothers cupboard, etc) but have never tried them. I don't want to get stuck purchasing a REALLY expensive brand that is questionable or not good so please let me in on YOUR trials and tribulations with these vitamins.

I take a multivitamin, fish oil, and psyllium husk. I'm celiac too, but use the psyllium to fake my stomach out that its full. I take probiotics, too, but last week was having a stomach bug and (this was probably mental) but I felt the probiotic made it worse.

Can someone tell me about maca? I can look it up but I'd love your informed opinions and experiences.

I guess I should get up the courage and just ask the nutritionist why its in the meal plan designed for me...I only took it for a week or 2, It is a good source of Choline, which is a part of the egg yolk, and I don't eat many egg yolks, so maybe that was why? Hm. Thanks for all your view points and opinions! I respect you ladies and will take them into consideration. I just recently re-started my eating plan, so that's why I brought this up.
Thanks again!

Wow, that lecithin stuff is kinda like fluoride which has been sold as a healthy additive to our drinking water but in reality it is just a by-product of aluminum manufacturing. Looks like lecithin is just another by-product of soy oil manufacturing and shipping. Those tricksy guys are always trying to make a buck selling us their leftovers and then calling them "healthy". I wonder what all was actually said in those product design boardrooms when the investors were screaming "OMG what ARE we going to do?” The EPA is charging us a lot of money for disposal and it is eating into our profits. “We can sell this, it’s just a matter of figuring out how to make it fly…wait, I’ve got an idea; a HEALTH FOOD!”
Waste not, want not…he he he

I also occasionally take Naturally Calm Magnesium supplement when I want to get a good night's sleep. I have vitamin K but read somewhere that the benefits were only from food not in tablets. I should prob still take them since I spent the money on them...

Oops forgot that I also use maca powder and spirulina, hemp seeds, chia seeds sometimes wheatgrass LOL I was only thinking of the tablets that I take daily. I put the powders in my smoothie. I want to get Acai powder from Navitas - anyone use that?

Well, I know that when I see lecithin on an ingredient label, I always put the package back. I always assume it's from soy. emoticon

My only concern with lecithin is how it is made. I think some sort of chemical extraction process is used which just leaves me thinking...hmmmmm sort of like the processes used for most common oils which we all know aren't good for us.
Do I think too much???

Oh, and like the webpage says, the best way to get lecithin is from gently cooked (still runny) egg yolk. I had a poached egg on top of some avocado this morning for breakfast so I feel good about my healthy fat and lecithin intake.

I take maca also... I haven't really noticed any difference either. The reason I take it is in anticipation of pre-menopause. lol It's supposed to really helps with hot-flashes and other symptoms. Preventative medice, I guess.

Lecithin... looks like a fatty substance and is also used as an emulsifier. I guess it must be a healthy fat, since it was prescribed. Hmmm... I will google some more.

So Use2be, what makes the "gelatinized" maca so special (besides the price)? I've been getting maca powder from my co-op using a tablespoon a day for about 8 months and I haven't felt much different. Are you saying that there is something about the "gelatinized" version that makes it work different? Does the website you posted say anything about this? Should I be using more? I have back pain that gets me depressed. Yoga helps a lot but not always enough.

Any suggestions you can give me would be appreciated

wow. I have never heard of maca before. I skimmed the site you posted. Pretty interesting. I don't take anything regular right now. Sort of fell off the wagon so to speak. I need to buy more calcium supplements though, since I am now extremely lactose intolerant and therefore not getting much calcium from dairy. i know its in other foods too, but I am positive I am not eating enough of them to make up for the lack. I also found a great protein powder at GNC that I like, soy based w/o a ton of carbs....This has sparked my interest though to look for more need in my diet. I did take some b complex the other day for a bit of PMS moodiness and it seemed to help. Which is a whole other thing...all the b vitamins, how do you know which to take? b12, b6??? Does anyone know much about lecithin? I have some in my cupboard from advice from a nutritionist, when I was "on plan" I was to sprinkle it on my evening veg at dinner. I've researched it a bit, but not really confident in what it is....
thanks!

While I have a list I have to take; however,

My #1 Is Peruvian Maca. forgive me but I'm in Maca celebration mode. I have chronic fatigue syndrome as well as Fibromyalgia. So I'm in constant pain and always tired.

I have found gelatinized Maca makes a huge difference. I have just recently worked up to 2 heaping Tablespoons a day (which is a lot) but the difference is amazing!!!

I have been able to do a weeks worth of activities in a day's time since I kicked it up. Which is the equivalent of a normal persons day +. With no exhaustion, no additional pain, etc...this is unheard of.

I buy the 1lb bag. Next order will be 2lbs. there is no price you can put on this stuff. Wow!!

www.macaperu.com/maca_facts.htm

If you buy it make sure it is gelatinized.

I have become a Garden of Life fan recently and am now taking all my supplements from them if possible. I also have found Vitamin Shoppe has a store brand made by them (Food Factors). I use Raw One for Women, Food Factors Calcium, Oceans Omega 3, and Raw iron. I also supplement magnesium (still have my whatever brand right now) and take whole psyllium husk for regularity. I have celiac disease, hypothyroid and hypertension.

Potassium
Calcium/Magnesium Whole Food

There are other various herbs I keep around for occasional specific troubles. I am gradually cutting out everything but the very most important supplements as I can't afford to buy them at this point. I have Hep-C so really all of these are important and I even used to take more stuff. But as I cut down I see fish oil, minerals and vitamin D as my must haves.

So far I have not supplemented. I am going to a new holistic doctor next month for a regular check-up. Maybe she will get me to change my mind.

I do supplement to make sure I get enough calcium, vitamin D and magnesium. I also take B supplements because I don't eat meat and I'm almost always low on them. I had to stop taking a multivitamin though because I was ODing on some of the vitamins since I eat so many fruits/veggies.

True that the soil is depleted of many minerals and some of them we can't absorb anyway. So to make up for it, I take Melaleuca's Vitality Total pack. I love the foil packets because all my supplements are portioned out in AM and PM packs. So easy. In mine is:

Multivitamin & Mineral
Calcium
Broad Spectrum Antioxidant
2-Strain Probiotic

A phytosterol/omega-3, CoQ10 and alpha lipoic acid product which reduces cholesterol, helps maintain triglyceride levels, and supports proper heart function.

A resveratrol product which helps maintain healthy blood pressure, reduces LDL oxidation, promotes healthy platelet activity.

Lutein/zeaxanthin/antioxidant blend to protect eyes and enhance night vision.

Glucosamine HCI, bromelain, ginger and green tea extract to help rebuild joint cartilage and support mobility and flexibility.

EstrAval to help balance my cycle and give relief from cramping.

In addition to this pack, I am iron deficient, so I take 50 mg of iron each day to keep my energy level up. I also take a cranberry product to prevent bladder infections which I used to get every couple of years.

I sometimes take Fiberwise, which is a psyillium husk product for *ahem* keeping the pipes clear. :)

Do it for you. Don't ever quit.
Run now. Die later.

So, we should get all our nutrients from food. But some of us supplement because it really isn't possible on every single day to get every single nutrient. Also, some of are deficient in certain vitamins and minerals and some of us may have certain conditions that require extra nutrients.

Do you supplement? Do you have a condition or deficiency? What do you take?

I take a fairly long list of supplements... I have hypothyroid, and I am B12 and iodine deficient.

I take:
Doc Mercola's whole food vitamins
Krill oil capsules
glucosamine
astaxanthin
Vit B12
Vit D3
time released Vit C
lugol's iodine
spirulina tablets
maca
and occasionally unflavored, unsweetened, benefibre (being hypothyroid can tend to make things... um... well.... difficult sometimes. lol)
