Do You Take Multivitamins?

Sometimes multivitamins seem overhyped, but some folks use them as a safety if they feel they are not getting enough vitamins and minerals from their diet. So tell me . . .

I take a bunch of supplements every day for treatment for my fibro and complicated migraines. I will have to admit that when I get cuts, I heal almost as fast a wolverine, LOL. Well, not that fast, but it heals within 2 days.

Why would I want to make my pee expensive ?? Honestly, I would rather maintain my healthy diet than pop a pill every day and expect it to keep me healthy.I am fitter and healthier now since I stopped eating a bad diet and expecting a multi vit to save me.

I write absolutely everything I eat in fitday and there is a way to see the nutrition and I was horrified to see that even I thought that I was eating very healthy there were way too many vitamins not in the right amount, and same case with magnese or pottasium, some other days it was calcium or vitamin A what was lacking, so I take a multivitamin every day, that really nail my daily requirements.

I take a multi and fish oil every day and I try my best to eat a balanced diet. I have read that taking children's vitamins is best.

I get enough of most nutrients in my diet, but to cover my bases, I do take a multivitamin, calcium supplement, and fish oil every day. To the people that take one every other day: You're better off cutting one in half and taking half a vitamin per day, otherwise you don't get the full effect of the water-soluble vitamins on your off days (vitamin B complex, vitamin C, etc.).

I take a multi usually three to four times a week( when I remember) along with a biotin, Omega 3, and magnesium

I take magnesium, because I used to drink a lot of mineral water and now I don't have access to it anymore and I started getting cramps. I also take omega-3s (fish oil), but not actually any vitamins (hasn't it been shown a few times that they don't really work?).

I take exactly 1/2 a tablet of a women's mulitvitamin every single day (it's only half because a whole one really unsettles my stomach, even with milk and food). I count on my regular diet for the rest of the vitamins I get. I credit my vitamin with keeping me generally healthy. I get the occasional mild cold and cough, but I haven't had anything really serious (besides food poisoning) in a long while since I started taking them when I was young.

Yes, I take a liquid multi-vitamin by (I think...) Nature's Source (or Source of Life.)

My husband has a sensitive stomach so I still buy him the Flintstones... I am vegan so I take a multivitamin for vegans.

Multivitamin pills upset my stomach. I sometimes buy Emergen-C drink powder (the kind with glucosamine, for my knees), but often go months between buying supplies of that. I eat well and trust I'm getting more or less what I need.
