Does anyone here take any regularly? If so, what and why?

If not, why not?

Surely if you eat a balanced diet you don't need to unless a doctor has told you specifically to take something?

“You may not feel outstandingly robust, but if you are an average-sized adult you will contain within your modest frame no less than 7 X 10^18 joules of potential energy—enough to explode with the force of thirty very large hydrogen bombs, assuming you knew how to liberate it and really wished to make a point."

Agree wholely. If you take say mens performance vits for a few weeks and stop taking I'd be pretty sure you'd hardly notice. It's so only an example but I think they have very little impact.

Suggest any symptoms that vitamins suggest they can address will be found in most whole foods.

But I am happy to be proved wrong.

I take a daily multi vitamin to cover any shortage in my diet on that day, but eating well is more important than any vitamin.

I don’t disagree (perhaps with the exception of vitamin D in winter months or pregnant women). That’s a big IF though. Many don’t.

My doc said that unless you work outside for a living, that everyone should take a vitamin D supplement as we don't get enough as a country. Some of the Vit D supplements are crazy high in their doses so best look at the labels. You shouldn't take more than 100 microgrammes a day otherwise it causes a build up of calcium in your body and damage your bones, kidney and heart. I take 25microgrammes a day. Do I feel better for it? No. But a year's supply was around a tenner and feel I'm doing the right thing.

If you liked my post, please take the time to upvote it. It's very much appreciated.

I take wellman.

I have a fairly healthy diet for the most part, though lapse occasionally and quite often struggle for energy in winter, and for the sake of a fiver a month it cant hurt.

I was born underwater, I dried out in the sun. I started humping volcanoes baby, when I was too young.

A multivitamin with iron once a week or so, purely to top up on any vitamins that I may be short of and any not used are passed through the body. They are also very cheap to buy, so I take them just peace of mind that I have everything my body needs to keep going. In the old days it was recommended to take a supplement in Winter as fresh salad was not readily available.

75% of Brits don’t get enough vitamin D, particularly during winter months when we don’t see the sun.

I’ve upped my B12 and never had as much energy.

Seems the whole of the UK has been told by quacks to get more Vitamin D, certainly I was. My suggestion of Caribbean Holidays on the NHS was not taken up...

I take a wholefood multivitamin every day. Part of it is Pavlovian and part of it is some days I dont have the greatest diet.

Pretty much everyone I know that has had any form of blood test has been told the same.

I was also informed my iron count was a bit low the last time I had a blood test, I was advised to eat more red meat! If I am honest, I dont know anyone who eats more red meat than me, I could go full carnivore if asked... Maybe theres more money in shares of iron supplements now....???

Not sure about "everyone", but a blood test showed I was quite badly deficient in vitD, despite spending a lot of time outside - this result came as quite a shock as it was halfway through last summer's heatwave. Therefore take with my GP's encouragement & approval, D3 1000 iu daily. And yes I do feel better for it, get less cramp for starters. Best taken after a meal, helps absorption.

Also down in bone density after scan (allergic to dairy) and have also been borderline anaemic for years, so again with GP's encouragement & approval, take calcium 2 x 500mg daily, & tummy-friendly iron 14mg daily. Consultant gastroenterologist also recommended amino acid L-Glutamine daily, which I do take sometimes but not regularly, as it costs £1 daily & isn't in UK prescribing list so not available on NHS. Many people with inflammatory bowel disease (UC or Chrohns) like myself simply don't absorb food properly, and/or have a very limited range of foods they're OK with, so supplements are actually essential for health.

The trouble with vitamins is I don't think the body absorbs the pills.
For instance if you are Vitamin B12 deficient you are given a jab as the pills are no good.

What dose of L-Glutamine do you take?


1 x 500mg capsule daily when taking, but instructions say up to 6 daily! on an empty stomach.

I use Natures Best for most things as I've found they use the fewest & purest ingredients, are ethical in their approach, reasonably priced & excellent customer service - they have a help & advice line, & have in the past sent me small samples to test if I'm unsure about allergens.

Edit: Holland & Barrett good for calcium & marine magnesium (the latter supposedly also good against cramp), & I buy those there.

I think your advice of taking pregnant women in the winter months could be controversial.

The only thing I know is that I might be wrong about everything else.

I take Turmeric capsules as it is a natural inflammatory. I've had a history of back and shoulder pain.

I like to think it helps but then again it may be a placebo effect.
