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. 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

Do multivitamins and calcium with d improve womens health?

Do multivitamins and calcium with d improve womens health?

Maybe: A recent article showed that more than 800mg of calcium taken as supplements increased heart disease so take half of your required dose as cal/mag & other half via diet. Vitamin d is important & most people are deficient or low so about 2000/day to maintain; if low may need more. Multivitamins are controversial. I think if you feel a step up with them after a few weeks then they are fine. ...Read more

Daily multivitamin is ok for healthy female of 43year older?

Yes-maybe: Previously, it was not recommended & is still controversial. However, many women do not get all the nutrients they need. Ideally, it would be best to get your nutrients from 'real' food & exposure to sunlight (re vit d). Nutrients are best absorbed from real healthy food. Calcium doesn't appear to be well absorbed from supplements, & they may even be harmful. And watch vit a intake-too much is bad. ...Read more

Please advise if it's ok if men take womens centrum multivitamins?

Men have different health needs: Than women. The supplement for women's health that deals with hormonal balance is not the same as the ones used to support men's prostate health. On the other hand, many of the ingredients in centrum is too low to be effective in either sex. So, it may not matter. This also goes for many of the costco multivitamin formulations, unless it's from a reputable brand that has higher rda's. ...Read more

How long does a women's multivitamin stay in the body? I had two. Thanks

Most over the: Counter multivitamins are very weak. They have a whole list of ingredients in them. The half-life of each ingredient varies. Vitamin C, for example, leaves the body in about 12 hours.

When is the best time to take in multivitamins? I have work at 3am-12nn and school at 1pm-6pm. I am taking enervon caps.

Early or mid-day: Multivits (esp. B vitamins) tend to give energy so it is best to take them relatively early in the day. You might take it before work or before school- when do you need more energy? You could try it at both times to see if taking it at one time helps you more than at the other time. It's generally good to take with food, as some vits are better absorbed with food & it will minimize stomach upset. ...Read more

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.
