How to take Vitamins

    As easy as it is for most people to access food in the U.S, that doesn't necessarily mean everyone is getting all of their needed vitamins the next day.

    So how do I take vitamins?

    My friend who is a nutritionist told me that taking a complete vitamin such as Women's One a Day daily is the best way to do it.

    However, I have another friend whose father is a vitamin doctor and he literally spends more than $200 a month on her daily vitamins, plus a weekly B12 shot.  She takes a variety of vitamins everyday and claims she has never even had so much as a cold or a hangover.

    I'm not trying to be superwoman, but I would like to know how to take vitamins as I believe I am what I eat.

    Any suggestions?

      I would suggest getting input from a good doctor who can look at your blood parameters and overall health to see what you need.  Taking too much of some vitamins can be bad for you.

      take a vitamin is probably a personal choice.Vitamins and Supplements Lifestyle Guide.
      Different protein products are used by different people for a varied number of reasons. Proteins can be found in natural protein products, pills, tablets or protein powder to facilitate either muscle building or weight loss. So, to answer the question, which protein powder best? One must understand benefits of the different proteins powders available in the market, as well as the basic requirement of a great protein product. For example, whey protein has excellent amino acid protein, high cytosine content and rapid digestion properties, while casein protein has interesting variety of peptides and slow digestion properties.

    I believe your question is "Which vitamins do I take?", to which my response is "i dunno lol".

    As for HOW to take vitamins, that's easy! Just open up and pop 'em in! But that's pretty common sense and I'm sure that's not what you were really asking.

    200 bucks a month plus a shot a week? No thanks! I'd rather get the occasional cold!

    I don't take any vitamins normally and I never get sick either. When someone near me is sick or I wake up feeling a little off, I take two or three vitamin C pills in the morning and I'm usually good. It could be psychological, but either way, I don't ever get sick.

      iam given some natural tips in fever relief

         eat a fresh fruits and vegetables .
          Reduce or cut out dairy foods.
          Avoid going outside.
          Use essential oil.
          Place your head over the bowl and inhale the steam. This can help to loosen up the mucus and get you breathing easier.
      Using natural proteins: Hemp protein is a form of protein found in the hemp plant The hemp plant has several benefits. It is a complete protein, similar to meat, and contains all the amino acids that are essential to good diet. In addition, it has an extremely high absorption rate by the body which is especially good for people such as athletes that need quick uptake of protein to increase muscle mass. It is also easily digested by the body and does not cause intestinal problems such as toximia (which can occur with whey-based products, for example). In addition, because of its PH-balance, hemp protein does not cause unnecessary catabolic activity. Finally, hemp does not contain any of the dioxins or toxins that are commonly found in fish - the source of fatty acids for most people.

    Generally speaking, vitamins do little good if they are not taken on a regular basis.  They really should not be taken unless there is a specific reason to, just as any medications.

    It's tough to get the best nutrition for your body in light of busy schedules, processed convenience foods and drive-through eateries. We know we need to eat well-balanced meals, but it is often impossible to find the time or the energy to prepare them. Luckily, we can take vitamins to help supplement our less-than-perfect diets.
    Get your vitamin C in a dosage of 60 mg per day. Vitamin C works to bolster the immune system to guard against viruses. It also destroys or decreases the effects of free radicals and nitrosamines, which can lead to certain cancers.
