Vitamins - any knowledge?

9 posts in this topic

Vitamins...which stores or brands would you recommend for the best price/quality ratio? There are so many stores and brands that one can get overwhelmed. Your thoughts.

I get mine from Costco and it's their direct competitor to Centrum. Pretty well priced, and it does what it does.

I take a multi, E, C, zinc and omega-3. All under my local grocery store brand. Shoot, if the potency is the same, why pay more?

Unless you know that you have a deficiency in a vitamin or mineral, it's not necessary to buy supplements. Loading up on an element when your body receives enough through endogenous sources (body processes) and/or exogenous sources (your diet) just creates expensive pee.

You can tell a lot from the color and smell of pee.

I get mine online. Doctorstrust.com, puritanspride.com, and vitacost.com - whichever one runs the best sale at the time I need them.

I take a multi, E, C, zinc and omega-3.

I was thinking B, E, Zinc, Selenium, Saw Palmetto and the Garlic pill

I find that I get a lot of zinc naturally from the fish (tuna, salmon) I consume. I eat a lot of carrots so I get a lot of Vitamin E.

Last week, I saw this beautiful baked haddock in the serving trays at Harrah's Buffet. I had 4 squares. That fish alone was worth the trip up there.

I'd like to find a good probiotic supplement. Right now, I'm just doing Trader Joe's probiotic strawberry yogurt (2x a day).

Target Children's multivitamin.....no lie.

I want to make up for the kids poor diet and make sure she gets enough vitamins, and in order to get her on a daily routine we started getting her the target equals to the flintstones. thing is, she will take them! so at least i know she gets iron and folic acid and beta carotene. If you check the label, they get most of what the adult vitamins get you.

in the winter i will get C and D supplements. D especially can help fend off flu etc. 2000mg of D to blast it out. sometimes to make them edible i grind up the C and D and mix it in with smoothies.

I used to take GNC vitamins but honestly they messed me up. too strong, and yes the nasty pee. Plus i would get ill like i was poisoned.

the target kids vitamins are pretty cost effective too.
