Vitamins and other nutritional supplements

Weird... not a single thread out there. Do you take vitamin supplements? There are studies out-there that disprove vitamin supplements do anything. I've also heard taking extra Zinc is good for you, but it makes me sick to take it. How about you guys?

Not needed if you consume a balanced healthy diet.

Probably not needed, but unless you have existing health issues or take mega doses, probably not going to hurt you either. Cheap insurance.

I used to take a multivitamin daily. I saw my hair and nails grow faster. I stopped taking them when I started eating better and stopped drinking coffee, and saw the same result. This is all while exercising regularly.

Can it hurt you? Maybe. Can it do you some good? Maybe.

Maybe I should start with the vitamins because I could never give up coffee

Wifey is a pharmacist.... I'm not going to try to say I know anything of any real substance about vitamins... But she does!

The only ones she'll bring home are derived from plants, so called 'whole food vitamins' ...never ones from chemical isolates...

The main one I take is:



Also take a D3 & B Complex...

Quick overview of whole food vitamins vs synthetic isolates..
