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. Vegetarian claims that you can get sufficient iron without supplementing are disinformation. If you are weak, there is some cause other than your supplements. You need and deserve a full workup. ...Read more

What daily vitamins should a vegetarian take to stay healthy? I'm a vegetarian & already take b12, vegetarian omega 3, multivitamin, and vitamin d-3.

What daily vitamins should a vegetarian take to stay healthy? I'm a vegetarian & already take b12, vegetarian omega 3, multivitamin, and vitamin d-3.

Consider L-carnitine: Sounds like you are doing well with the vitamins you have chosen. A healthy vegetarian diet can provide nearly all the nutrients you need except for dha, an omega 3 which you can get from algae extracts. Carnitine is not a vitamin, but is a beneficial nutrient found mostly in red meat that aids in burning fat for energy & is good for our hearts & muscles, so consider taking l-carnitine too. ...Read more

What multivitamins would you reccomend to be the best for women in your opinion?

What multivitamins would you reccomend to be the best for women in your opinion?

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

Many good choices: There is no one best multivitamin.
