Hello... I'm currently taking a nutrition class and have a assignment to do on vitamins. The couple of questions I need answered is, do you take vitamin supplements? If yes, what are they? If no, ask why not? I will appreciated it if I get any respones. Thanks!
Vitamin c 500 mg / day to increase your basal metabolic rate . Vitamin e 200 iu ( international units ) / day to thin your blood . And, last but not least beta carotine 10, 000 iu / day to stabilize your insulin level ( which all of us has whether diabetic or not ) .
Well, I have a multivitamin )for people over 50. I am only 25, but it was the only multivitamin I could find without iron as I do not take iron supplements. And I also have calcium. Unfortunately, I do not take them often, but I do plan on it! I cannot take many vitamins as they make me sick, so a multivitamin works well for me.
I take a liquid vitamin with 178 ingredients daily. Have done so for about 8 months. Biggest effect i've noticed is a little more energy (i tend towards the energizer bunny anyway) and able to maintain a very positive attitude whilst experiencing some negative business results.
Also take a super antioxidant. Although no outwardly visible effects, with those two supplements, tested rather high on an antioxidant test - 33,000. The average initial test is in the mid teens - 13 or 14,000.
Cost of both products is under $2 a day or about $60 a month. Many folks spend that on cokes every day.
