Re: What vitamins or supplements are you taking

My dad is a total healthnut, so I've been taking vitamins for as long as I can remember, starting with chewable Flintstone vitamins. Haha!

Current Daily Vits (in order of importance to me):
B COMPLEX- I'm a vegetarian, and most sources of B vitamin is found in meat, so I must supplement my diet.
PROBIOTIC - because I'm so fortunately prone to yeast infections
ALIVE MULTIVITAMIN WITH IRON - I really like Alive because it is a whole food multivitamin. This means that the vitamins and minerals are not chemicals created in a lab, but instead are actually derived from food sources all mushed up. There are other brands, but this one is a little less pricey. (Also, if a man is taking a multivitamin, he should get the one WITHOUT iron.)
CALCIUM W/ D3 - Calcium because I'm a lady and D3 because I live up north, which means my body is not getting the sun it needs.

Occasionally, like when I had thrush, or feel sick (not barfy sick, but like coldy/immune system sick), grapefruit seed extract is excellent. As is colloidal silver.

I take a probiotic as I have occasional yeast issues as well.
I also take hydroxycut to aid in my weightloss.
And calcium and a prenatal vit. (not preggers, just a great vitamin!)

Re: What vitamins or supplements are you taking

I love my supplements so of course I have to post here =) I take them for all around good health but my worst symptoms of poor diet are anxiety, depression, and PMS (only irritability).

I love AlkaGreen Barley powder from Morter Health Systems LOVE It gives me tons of energy and after taking it for 3 months I stopped chewing my nails and I was a life long nail biter. However AlkaGreen and Trace Minerals alone does not get rid of the PMS/irritability for me.

I also take Melaleuca Oligo vitamins for women + the strong teeth and bones. These are just fundamental vitamins to eliminate PMS.

I also take high potency fish oil 2x per day.

I have also used the pharmaceutical grade vitamins from Women to Women and those were very good as well.

I am taking Shaklee Vita-Lea plain ol' multi. I have a pretty good diet and take this to just fill in the gaps some days if I don't eat to many veggies or whatever.....
