Hi there
I'm not keen on exercise and my diet is less than desirable, however, I have been taking the following supplements for over 5 years to compensate for a sedentary lifestyle and wondered if I was actually wasting my money?
I'm feeling tired all the time but again know this is due to diet and lack of exercise.
I'm 47 years old and a !**@! for my height, my BMI is bordering on 30!!!!
I know I need to improve my fitness and diet but your advice on the supplements would be most welcome.

This is the list of supplements I take daily:-
Probiotics and FOS
Glucosamine sulphate 1500mg
Cod liver oil 1000mg
Evening primrose oil 1000mg
Chlorella 700mg
Centrum women multi vit and minerals
Echinacea 380mg
Cetirizine hydro chloride

Thank you
SamCat ^-^

It seems like you are considering more vitamins than actually your body need. I also belive that considering right brands vitamins and supplements is better.
