Is vitamin d a type of macronutrient?

No: Macronutrients are carbohydrates (sugars and starches), lipids (fats) and proteins. Vitamin d is none of these; it's a compound found in a few foods, but mostly made in your skin when you are exposed to sufficient sunlight. Your body uses vitamin d in many ways.

Is lots of vitamin C good or bad?

Is lots of vitamin C good or bad?

Can you take a multi vitamin and a regular vitamin such as vitamin b complex or c?

Can you take a multi vitamin and a regular vitamin such as vitamin b complex  or c?

Some people will benefit from higher intake of b complex than many multivitamins provide and there is no danger in taking an additional b complex. There is no harm in taking lots of b's except limit b6 to 250 day. Excessive Folic Acid may be harmful- see my comment. ...Read more

I take fish oil, vitamin c, vitamin d, calcium plus vitamin d, red yeast rice, multivitamin, which of this is the most effect?

Ca and D: Why are you taking all that junk? What do you think it will do for you? How will you know if it's working? What deficiency are you treating or what disease are you trying to prevent? There's no scientific evidence that any of that will help you except for good calcium in your diet and about 2000 units of d a day. Don't get your medical info from tv, friends or the internet. ...Read more
