I actually never paid any attention to it before, as the one time i have seen a dr in the past 37 years he did a blood test and found me low in b12.(now I take a supplement) otherwise "as good as he has ever seen, off the charts good"

I started taking vitamin D back in March because my levels were so low (bloodtest) though can't say I really noticed a difference.

Though if one is deficient or doesn't drink or eat enough food fortified naturally or unnaturally with vitamin D, I would think that Vitamin D supplements would be a better option than multivitamins.

It has more calories and sugar than almond and soy, so I use it on occasion.

Multivitamins like Centrum typically have 800-1,000 IU vitamin D whereas if you are low in vitamin D the doctor will suggest supplementation of 1,000-2,000 IU/day. So multivitamins are good for maintenance & vitamin D only supplements are more appropriate for deficiency, perhaps on top of a multivitamin. As you age & eat less, it is harder to get everything you need, particularly if you do not have a perfect diet.

Listen to random people posting a lot on this forum , or listen to a dr reading studies




guy below doesnt even watch it before commenting. No hope. Im commenting on "multi vitamin" (which it says right in the title) that he posted on before by simply posting the Harvard sutdy, not Vitamin D. It is always the ones who post the most who know the least.

That is about cardiovascular disease prevention, not vitamin D deficiency, which is endemic in Canada. Find something about taking a multivitamin for general health or vitamin deficiency & it will be relevant. No 1 said that vitamin D was implicated in cardiovascular disease.

This thread reminding of this vid from I think popular health nut:
I see a couple brands maybe he's got in there that are in Canada but other nice ones he recommends I wonder where and if you can find similar ones here?

For those who like to make your own, may I suggest trying cashew and hemp milk, both better tasting and less work than almond ...

Tastes way better maybe because oat milk naturally will contain more sugar because it gets created by the processing. No sugar added oat milk still contains a significant amount of sugar while almond milk will not.

So those extra calories could be sugar if you are comparing with no added sugar almond milk.

dont believe everything posted (dont believe guy partly linking to American sites)

Soy has more protein
Bio-availability (to humans) is the issue. Just because it's there doesn't mean it's available.

Example: Spinach. Rich in iron. Unfortunately spinach is also rich in oxalic acids that binds with iron.so it's mostly not bio available to humans.


At any rate, everyone knows the next big thing is potato milk
I smile when I see container ships sailing past my house laden with stuff made in China
