Default Advice on natural vitamin supplements?


Hi everyone,
I'm new here!
I would like to start taking some vitamin supplements but I don't know much about them. I just know that I would like them to be natural. So many types and brands, I don't know where to start... Do you guys have some advice?
I also try to eat fruits and veggies but I don't think I get enough vitamins from them.

Thank you so much!

Mary

My favorite is Dr. Mercola's multi. I've given it to friends to try and they've loved it as well. One friend says she feels 100% better after taking it.

Life Extension Foundation's Mix is also good.

Default Advice on natural vitamin supplements

Most vitamins sold in drugstores are made in labs-are synthetic which I don't believe is desirable. I buy my vitamins online or in health food stores. My favorite multi vitamin is made by Garden of Life. One of the best if not the best supplement is curcumin-I buy the one from Jarrow Formula-meriva form. Lastly, from what I read, Vitamin D is the most important vitamin. Again, Garden of Life-made from raw whole foods.

I also use Dr. Mercola's multivitamin. Only thing missing is vitamin K. I take that separately.

Turmeric, Ginger & Krill oil are also other supplements with many benefits.

If you're looking for one that has vitamin K included, my whole family (ages 16-60+) uses the MicroLife multivitamin. It has 80mcg of vitamin K and is all natural, allergen free and vegetarian.

You must be rich. That's an expensive supplement. Try to remember that supplements are just that. Supplements for a diet that may not be optimum. And multi level marketing has more hype than solution.

I'm glad you mention the K. I take a bone care supplement that has more calcium than Dr. Mercola's multi has as well as K and some other minerals for bone health.

I also take turmeric or cucurmin and krill.

Natural Vitamin supplements are taken as a 'health insurance' to boost energy, slow down the effects of ageing and reduce the risk of chronic disease.

You can get all your necessary vitamins and minerals (these are just as critical, if not more) from a balanced diet. I think that supplements are great gap fillers for busy lives and can have great effects like energy and immune boosting properties though, I agree with Amazing.

I run a seaweed nutritional shop online and I always advise organic, local and then supplements.

Glad to hear your into natural stuff though!

Most multivitamin/mineral supplements use synthetic elemental ingredients, and the body can not absorb them. The only good one that I've seen is doctor Wallachs products. His multi mineral is in liquid colloidal form and is 98% absorbed by the human body. Nothing else even comes close. Vitamins will not work without mineral cofactors,so just taking a multivitamin is useless.

You can only get minerals from food if they were grown in mineral rich soil, and mineral rich soil is a myth...has been since about 1935. Food,without proper supplementation, equals a short life.

Methyl mops up the pollution in the mitochondria and beta alanine mops up the pollution from exercise. You can get methyl from msm and tmg.
