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. 2126 days ago
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! 2127 days ago
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. 2127 days ago
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. 2127 days ago
