Vitamins Part 2: As you can tell from the first blog on vitamins from Tuesday 8/18, the topic is a huge undertaking. Every magazine from Ladies Home Journal to Women's muscle has an opinion of what vitamins should be taken and are important. How can you ever choose?
Here are some facts I have researched and chosen for myself and then you can do the same. I take vitamins in the a.m. and before bed. Some product dosages recommend twice a day, and you should not take calcium and multi-vitamins at the same time- the calcium negates the effectiveness of the multi vitamin out.
Be sure to read the packaging on the bottles to make sure your not getting more than 100% recommended daily allowances for vitamins, particularly if your taking more than one kind. Fancy packages and high tech marketing don't necessarily make the products better.
For my dietary supplements I take (Citrical 9500iu), multivitamin (Kirkland brand), flaxseed oil capsules (1300mg), Fish oil(1200mg)-[find one that doesn't creep through your pores and make you smell like fish, but it does help me], and glucosamine(500mu.)/chondrointin sulfate(400mg.). This supplement helps joint mobility.
Do the research or ask a nutritionist. Vitamins are an investment, but you can help keep your internal systems, hair as well as your skin, well balanced and healthy.
