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

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

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

What would you say is the very best multivitamin for a young woman?

What would you say is the very best multivitamin for a young woman?

Many good choices: There is no one best multivitamin. For independent ratings of multivits see http://www.Multivitaminguide.Org/ any in the top 25 or so are good, but since 1/3 of people have difficulty converting Folic Acid to the active form l-5-mthf i advise one that has that such as ultranutrient by pure encapuslaions or ultrapreventive x by douglas. Most people need an extra 5000 iu of vit d in winter months. ...Read more

None: Go to your Doctor to see if you have a specific vitamin deficiency, or are looking for specific support, like for menstruation symptoms or to become pregnant. Then take that specific vitamin or vitamins. Multivitamins are not generally useful and can cause more symptoms than they help. Save your money and spend it on a gym membership. Exercise has proven health benefits. ...Read more
