Who takes Multivitamins?

I'm currently taking Jamieson Men Power but this one is discontinued and I need a replacement. Anyone recommendations? Ones without Iron though since that stuff makes me poop blood.

what is it that you were deficient in before that it made such a huge difference?

Just eat your fruits and veggies so you don't have to take multi-vitamins.

How does that supply things like zinc, calcium, Vitamin D?

Most fruits provide a small amount of zinc, but several are especially rich in the mineral. Pomegranates are among the richest, with about 1 milligram of zinc in one fresh pomegranate. Avocados are also relatively high in zinc, with about 1.3 milligrams in one medium fruit. Some berries are also good sources of zinc.


Here are ten delicious fruits you can alternate between are great sources of calcium, not to mention other nutrients!

Oranges and Tangerines. ...
Dried Apricots. ...
Kiwi. ...
Dates. ...
Dried Figs. ...
Rhubarb. ...
Prickly Pears. ...
Prunes.

Maitake mushrooms have a higher concentration of vitamin D per serving than any other type of mushroom. Each 1-cup serving of diced, raw maitake mushrooms contains 786 international units of vitamin D, which is more than 100 percent of the 600 IU daily intake recommended for healthy adult men and women.

Lol, I need 5000IU of Vitamin D daily. I couldn't eat enough produce to consume enough calcium. And even if I did, I'd be missing out on other foods. Anti-upplememt people tend to be pretty myopic. Not saying that's the case here, but often people can't think about contexts beyond their own.

The brand Natural Factors is fine. Getting advice from a homeopath is not though. Homeopathy is not an evidence based practice.

She must have the same problem as me. I get super moody if i dont take my Multivitamins. I'm glad this is helping her.

I only buy vitiamins that are well known

She has a lot of Woman problems. She suffered from endometriosis for most of her life, partial hysterectomy 8 years ago, a degenerate shoulder problem which makes it dislocate 2-3 times a year, as well as the depression and anxiety attacks that make it hard for her to sleep for days at times.

The trainer has helped her balance herself and be happy about herself. She is blessed with a high metabolism which has helped her maintain her smallish statue. I do admit her diet was not the best but she was never a junk food junkie either. She is a smoker which is another knack against her but all in due time.

If someone decides to use vitamins I believe any little bit helps and if one is to look a little close into their own health, they will see eventually what foods can help with what and start to do more natural means as opposed to the pill form.

My bad, it's not even the Natural Factors brand. Being a PT doesn't make the recommendation more legit though.

There's nothing in that multivitamin in any significant amount. She might think that taking a multi is taking positive action towards her health and might be rewarded with a bit of placebo effect. But multis aren't made to cause night and day effects.
