What vitamins and supplements do you take on a daily basis?
A couple years ago, I started taking fish oil everyday. I had been complaining that my memory and concentration didn't seem to be as good as they were, and someone recommended fish oil was good for the brain. I still take it, but I can't say I've noticed any difference in my memory.
I take a simple muti-vitamin daily. Then I take several supplements. I take a 1000 mg fish oil to help with cholesteral. I recently started buying "chewy" calcium vitamin. They are really good, makes me remember to take them every day. I also take 1000 mgs of vitamin C and a 1000 mg of B-12. I need the vitamin B to have the energy to take all the rest of them!
I take no vitamins. I will however take them if I am ever in a low state of health where they would be helpful to me.
I train in powerlifting and this is what I take.
Vitamin D3 (liquid form)
Brown rice and whey protein
And I eat 8 portions of Veg/fruit per day
Omega-3, magnesium, vitamin D, vitamin B complex, co-Q10, alpha lipoic acid are my favorites. Occasionally, I also take Acetyl-L-Carnitine, krill oil, a multivitamin, and probiotic. I've written about most of these in the past.
I take a b complex with rose hips and vitamin c, 400IU of vitamin E and 540mg of Black cohosh in the morning. In the evening I take an Omega 3 enriched multivitamin, 1200mg of calcium, 540mg of black cohosh, and 50mg of zinc. I also take 1000mg of potassium throughout the day, generally four times unless I eat a few bananas or other high potassium fruits. Either way I get my 4700mg of potassium daily. Plus I'm vegan so over 80% of my diet is raw unprocessed veggies. I juice fruit throughout the day as well.
I take a glucosamine and chondroitin combination in the hope that it will help protect my joints against any damage that may be caused from pounding the pavements. I also take starflower oil to help keep my hormones on an even keel, they help prevent PMT.
it is importand to take a multivitamin everday becauce you can't get it all from food. i also take creatine because i lift weight every day. i sometimes take glucosamine to help lubricate my joints.
I think B-complex, multi-vitamins, gingko, vitamin C, liquid calcium and zinc.
I do believe these supplement helps in a long run for health.
It is not recommended to take vitamins supplement everyday. You can maximize the chance of getting these vitamins through a diet - fruits and vegetables, without having to worry of its side effects. read more
