Female Take Vitamin
Is it advisable for a female to take multi-vitamins and calcium supplements on a long term basis? If yes, what do I look out for in my selection.
Good mulitvit, Vit D: It's best to get vits from your diet, but the majority of americans don't get enough vit a, e, d, folic acid, calcium, mag. &chromium from their diets & over 1/3 are deficient in c, zinc & b6. Thus, unless you have an exceptionally healthy diet it is wise to take a high quality mulivit. Plus about 5000 iu of d in fall & winter (year-round if you wear sunscreen or avoid sun).

It depends...: This partly depends on how aggressively you wish to prevent various illnesses as well as family history/risk factors.I advise everyone take vit.

D in winter months.To prevent osteoporosis at least 1 mg of vit, k & perhaps a quality calcium/mag. Consider ashwagandha or rhodiola as herbal tonic. ...Read more

Dont need any: You should not need any vitamin supplements if you have a balanced diet. It is hard to get a true vitamine deficiency unless there are certain medical conditions going on.

The Methadone has no bearing on what vitamins you want to take however. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hi im 21 years old , im a female and I would like to know what kind of vitamins do I need to take everyday!? Thank's
PNV: If you eat healthy and avoid junk food, soda, and fast food, you don't need to take any vitamins except maybe prenatal vitamins (any brand). If you are vegetarian (better), you really don't need any vitamins except possibly prenatal (although you'll be getting enough folate). If you are vegan, the only vitamin that you definitely need to take is B12 supplements. ...Read more

Probably: The recommended number of drinks/wk for non-pregnant women is 7 or less. If you have a family history of breast cancer, you might want to drink less. Studies have shown a link between alcohol and breast cancer. But alcohol is also associated with a lower risk of heart disease. To make an informed decision about how much to drink, talk to your doctor about your personal risk of these diseases. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hi. I'm 23 years old female and i already have a baby. I'm losing my appetite. What vitamins should I take for me to gain weight? Thank you!

None: Eat an orange or two every day. It's also a good source of fiber. Don't drink oj as it's not a good source of fiber and certainly not as filling. Check this out for other dietary sources of vitamin c: http://www.Nlm.Nih.Gov/medlineplus/ency/article/002404.Htm. If you decide to eat a grapefruit daily, check w/your pharmacist to make sure you're not taking some medication that may be affected. ...Read more
What is the max daily dose of vitamin B12 an adult female with very low levels can take? If her face is flushed is she taking too much?
Interesting question: Adults generally need 2.6 micrograms b12/day. To replace deficiencies, im shots bypass gut absorption problems that can contribute to deficiency in the first place. 1, 000 micrograms of intramuscular cobalamin can be given once/day for 10 days, then once/week for four weeks, followed by once/month for life. Sublingual b12, 500-1000mcg/day. The form of B12 (cobalamin) may be important; see comment. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Need more info: If you are short....5 feet 3 inches or so, 115 pounds may be a fine weight. This all depends on your bone structure and body fat. If you are taller, 115 may be underweight. Vitamins don't really help with healthy weight gain: best to eat frequent, every 2-3 hours, high caloric density food. This includes high protein and healthy carbs: whole wheat bread/cereal/pasta, and reasonable fat. ...Read more
I'm a 53 year old female. Do you know if GNC mega vita-mom premium performance is a good vitamins for me and my 12 year old son to take?
Please clarify: I tired to look this up but could not find a vitamin with this name so please ask again with the correct name. I did check some GNC multivitamins and in general they have good ingredients but also have some toxic additives like titanium dioxide and sucralose that are unnecessary.
