Best Multivitamin Vegetarian Women
I am in my late 20s, female, vegetarian. Prone to low BP/iron. Will multivitamin and mineral supplements help?
Maybe a little...: Vegetarians usually have well balanced diets aside from b12 that is found in meat. Hence, a multi-vitamin would help under these circumstances or if you feel your diet could be better balanced. If you think your iron levels are low, have heavy periods perhaps and frequently feel fatigued consider getting a complete blood count and iron panel to see if you would benefit from iron supplementation. ...Read more

By all means: If you are a vegetarian, you have the moral high ground but will need a physician's guidance on supplementing or you will probably become seriously sick.

You are young and: MVI (multivitamin) daily is great that isn't sold in the chain pharmacies or Costco may be higher quality. We can't recommend brands in this forum. So read the labels, and ask your pharmacist for recommendations. A good, balanced diet is even more important than MVI (multivitamin), as many don't even get absorbed from the binders used. So, get one with good trace mineral support. ...Read more

Multivitamin/iron/D: It is always best to get nutrients from our diet, but most people do not get optimal amounts of all needed nutrients from our diet, so a well-rounded multivitamin with minerals is a good insurance policy to assure you are getting optimal nutrition.
