What vitamins/supplements do you all take daily ?
Hope you will list them here and share your reason for choosing them ! Thanks !
I take :
Vit c - started this week
Magnesium for sleep
Melatonin for sleep
C 1000 for heart
D3 for mood
B12 to reduce the levels of homocysteine in my body
5HTP for anxiety, and late night cravings, I rarely take it anymore
Melotonin for sleep, I rarely take it anymore
Metamucil for fiber
Natural Calm for fast heart rate
Zinc for skin
Fish Oil for heart
Niacin for cholesterol
R-Lipoic Acid for blood sugar
On occasion when I miss a day of my vitamins, I'll take a Women's Centrum Silver Multi Vitamin
I've been using twinlab daily one without iron (I don't need it) for about 14 years now. It's a powder in capsule so disperses easily in the body.
I also take magnesium (240mg. twice a day, after lunch, after dinner).
This is a really good topic. I tend to be attracted to buying vitamins and supplements but frankly I'm not sure what I need other than the D3 (tested low). Sometimes I wonder if this is just an unnecessary expense. Right now I'm taking:
Calcium - for the bones since I don't drink milk
Magnesium - for calming and sleep
Multi-vitamin - general health
Super B - stress
D3 - I tested low
Fish Oil - heart health among other things
CoQ10 - heart and blood pressure
Not sure whether to continue with the calcium. I read that it might not be good for the heart. I'm confused.
Your doctor can test you for serum calcium. Years ago mine was excessively high and that's how I found out I had a parathyroid tumor. It turned out to be more than one. I then had to take calcitrol (specialized calcium) but now my bones are suffering because of over calcification. The test is simple and can be done with just a blood draw.
I am trying to help get rid of a host of annoying issues that arose from stubbornly eating wheat whilst knowing I am allergic...
I am experiencing detoxing syndromes and trying to supplement with the following to alleviate the symptoms and support my immune system:
Omega 3 Cod liver oil
I am also eating coconut oil and grass fed butter.
I eat enough dairy to keep the Netherlands in business with their cheese exporting, as well as lots of green leafy vegetables, so I am ok for calcium.
Due to extremely dry skin issues I am considering taking Silica in the form of diatomaceous earth... I should also start my probiotics again to support this...
The CoQ10 will be stopped once I finish the bottle, and the Iodine is an experiment at the moment, so I will probably stop that once I finish the packet I bought and reassess.
I take Magnesium every night before I go to bed, 400mg dosage.
D3 I take daily after my first meal of the day, and I take 10000 iu in winter/darker months and reduce my dosage to 5000 iu every other day in the months that I manage to get enough sunshine on my skin.
very interesting ! Thanks for responding !
magnesium - to help me be regular
probiotics - digestive health and regularity
fish oil - general health and to reduce inflammation
cranberry pill - urinary tract health
Occasionally take aloe vera juice to help my digestive issues
Vitamin D-about 20-30,000 IU's per day in the winter months. This has kept me from getting sick :)
Fish oil-2 at every meal
CoQ10-one per day
Cerofolin-this is a medical grade prescription that is used for early onset dementia, but I use it for other reasons. It has folic acid, some B vitamins and NAC in it.
Calm Magnesium-helps me sleep
Melatonin-5 or 10mg per night
I use other things when needed such as collodial silver, monolaurin, oregano oil.
cfine, how do you use colloidal silver? I have some which I bought for my candida symptoms, but haven't used it yet... What do you use it for?
Magnesium? For sleep? I am an insomniac... Once I went through menopause I have never slept well (it has been 5 years). I tried the melatonin but it did not work and I was afraid to keep taking it (does it need to build up?). I have talked to two Drs. about this. They both wanted to give me sleeping pills which I do take occcasionally. My OB/GYN does not want to give me Hormone Replacment Therapy. I think going through Menopause has something to do with this. How much Magnesium do you take? I may need to try this. Does it take a while to work? The last 3 nights I have only had 3 hours sleep....it's killing me I feel like a zombie.
I take Progesterone before bed and sleep like a baby.
I personally take 400mg magnesium and 2 Melatonins together. I usually get sleepy within an hour and go lay down. Doesn't make me STAY asleep though ;/
Currently the only thing I'm taking is Shaklee Vita Lea without Iron, one tablet every other day, (each tablet provides 1/2 of the RDA for adults). But I eat a very balanced diet which includes lots of veggies, meats, and healthy fats, so I am pretty sure I'm getting everything I need.
Currently I am looking into supplementing further with probiotics (to help with autoimmune disease prevention), chromium and magnesium (for blood sugar/insulin), CoQ10 (antioxidant), selenium (thyroid), and a few others but I'm not done researching yet to find out if I actually need any of those.
Multivitamin - general health
Omega 3 - increase concentration
Raspberry ketone - only trying it for this one month to see if it helps with weighloss (it hasnt done)
Sea Kelp - for skin and hair.
Also want to start taking Acai berry tablets for cleansing enternally. x
Currently Iím taking:
COQ10 with Selenium
Naturthroid for Thyroid
My DH and Mom take some of these also. Not one of us has even had a cold this year. It could also be that we are super vigilant about hand washing and sanitizing due to the flu scares.
evening primrose oil
wow I've never heard of some of these ! Interesting stuff :)
I started the Green Coffee & Raspberry Ketones after Dr. Oz went cuckoo over them but I really haven't noticed any benefits... They are pricey too. I'll probably just stop after they're gone....
My lists are pretty similar to the others, with the addition of glucosmine/choindroitan . . . said to help my aging joints.
I am adding a bit of extra potassium for a few days now that I am starting some serious LC. Otherwise, I'll get leg cramps.
A-Z Multivitamin with minerals
Echinacea (until the cold season finishes)
Omega 3, 6 & 9
I also take White Kidney Bean Extract if I'm eating more carbs than I'd like
