    Which Vitamin Supplements really work for you?

    I have been using multivitamins and Iron for a while but still get tired. I'm wondering if they are not effective because I got them in the Supermarket. (and they are also a Supermarket brand)

    What does it for you?

    I trust natural sources of vitamins and other essential nutrients. Natural is green and good.

    Multivitamins are always good for you. But, if you are a non-vegetarian, you should consider taking considerable amounts of lean meat and eggs too. Because, these are processed and used in our body to meet a wide range of requirements which include vitamins.

    Also, vegetables are also fine. Carrots, beetroots etc etc. If you feel tired, maybe you should check your blood sugar level also. Include potatoes and sweetened drinks in your breakfast.

    Pls don't rely solely on multivitamins from markets. If your tiredness persists too long, i advise you to consult a physician and have a check on your blood levels for different nutrients.

    Hope that helps,

    I've had good luck with the high energy B vitamins.  Spring Valley makes a multiple B complex (from Walmart, very inexpensive) - and I notice a difference - to a point where I cannot take them at bedtime and I am great sleeper.

    I am told a great vitamin needs to dissolve quickly - the horse pills that are not sugar coated are the best.

    I am currently trying out biotin for my hair and nails - will keep you posted.

    Hi Lady_E, I have been using biotin for quite a few years and I definitely see a positive improvement in my hair. I also take iron and a multivitamin.  I usually get mine at a store called the vitamin shopee, store brand. Although, I tend to also get unusually tired at times what works best for me  is when I stick to a regular exercise routine.

    My family only trust USANA's supplements.  They've changed the quality of my teenage daughter's health-related quality of life.  You are right to question the effectiveness of supermarket brands.  I've learned so much about nutritional supplementation over the last few months.  One of the most important nuggets is that all supplements are not created equal and, in general, you get what you pay for.  For your reference, below is an article that I wrote about evaluating vitamin brands.  I hope it is helpful.

    It truly is superior to be aware about the d vitamin ingestion and try to obtain the recommended every day dose. Luckily this vitamin can be received right from food items or through nutritional supplements. On the other hand, there is certainly a different excellent source of d vitamin. You may have this vitamin in the event you expose to sun light each day for 10 to 15 minutes and this will be the cause why it truly is called “the sunlight vitamin".

    The intake of these kinds of natural vitamins contributes to your body having just what it necessities and also expelling the rest thus there is absolutely no possibility of the toxicity. Those who have a large number of nutritional vitamins have to know which have been fat-soluble as well as that are water soluble or it's possible how the vitamin supplements they decide to try be healthy could end up forcing them to be ill.
