What Do One A Day Pro Edge Vitamins Do
Hmmm....: Whether an expired medication is safe or not depends on the medication, the patient, and how long it has been expired. Officially, people should not use expired medications. Occasionally, the medication chemistry changes with age and becomes harmful. Even if vitamin tablets don't change much over the course of 14 months since expiration, a U.S. doctor is unlikely to recommend taking them. ...Read more
Yes: Vitamins can react with air or light and do have expiration dates. That being said, they do not exactly go to the dark side one stroke after midnight on the expiration date. There is some leeway built into the expiration date. ...Read more

Good quality vitamin: We agree. I'm not a fan of most over the counter multivits. They have just enough of many ingredients in them to make them legal. They also base their contents on the rdas of the government, which are extremely low. Ask a nutritionist or your doc to suggest a brand. If you look on the label and many of the ingredients are several hundred % above the rda you are on the right track. Peace. ...Read more

Not to worry: While most multiple vitamin formulations are designed to provide most of the Recommended Daily Allowances of vitamins for one day, doubling up occasionally will have no effect. Some of the vitamins are water soluble and any excess will be voided in urine. One day's extra amount will not be a problem for the fat soluble ones. This was probably just a mistake, but the gummies taste pretty good, no? ...Read more
Recent news article referenced the one a day vitamins taked really aren't beneficial, what are your opinions?
Take better Vits!: The main study cited used centrum silver, a poor-quality vitamin with inadequate doses, poor absorption, toxic synthetic vits ; toxic additives; the message isn't that vitamins aren't effective but that poor-quality vitamins don't help. See http://bit. Ly/18befjw for a detailed analysis as well as http://bit. Ly/1bimyzh for my analysis of another aspect of this same study- i'll blog about this soon. ...Read more
What's an acceptable set of only 3 items that one can eat every day and week and still be healthy enough...along w/ a vitamin? Can't afford alot.
Be careful: I don't think anyone could give you an answer to this and they shouldn't. It's dangerous to limit yourself to 3 specific foods and a multivitamin. You need variety in your diet to stay healthy. Generally speaking the more ingredients you can recognize in your food with your naked eyes the better it is (remember pepperoni is not an ingredient). ...Read more
I've been taking one a day teen vitamin since I was 17. I'm not taking any vitamins now. I'm 20, can I still take one a day teen or another vitamin?
OK but better vits: There is no reason that a good vit for a 19 yo would not be good for a 20 yo, but this is a relatively poor quality vitamin- it has synthetic e (which is toxic) as well as artificial colors ; other harmful chemicals. There are many far better options. See http://bit. Ly/1b36cq0 for independent ratings of 101 different brands- any in the top 30 are great ; far better choices for you. ...Read more
Vitamin D, ? fish oil: The most important vit. For most people to take is vit d in winter, as it's impossible to get enough from the sun that time of year. Most adults need to take 5-8000 iu of d3/day from oct.-march (year-round if you use sunscreen or don't get enough sun). If you don't eat much fish rich in omega 3's consider a good-quality fish oil like nordic naturals. Make sure you take a quality multi- see comment:. ...Read more
Depends: The results you get from a vitamin depends upon many things. One, it would depend on your body's need for the vitamin - if you do not need it, it will not make a difference. It also depends upon the the quality of the vitamin- some are good and some are no good at all. Next, it would depend on your body's ability to absorb and use the vitamin. It can take months to notice a difference. ...Read more
I'm want to fast for 2 weeks if I take a one a day men vitamin will I gain any weight by fasting?
Very unhealthy idea: Fasting for two weeks could make you ill. Once your body clicks into starvation mode - your metabolic rate may drop and put you at risk for weight gain when you start eating again. Most multiple vitamins have minimal calories. Gummy vitamins and other "candied" options are usually higher in calories. ...Read more

Good but even better: The majority of americans are deficient in folate, (folic acid) vit a, d, e, calcium & mag. Over 1/3 are low in zinc, vit c & b6. Recent research shows a basic multiple significantly reduces cancer risk. One-a-day is better than nothing but I don't advise as it has toxic ingredients like synthetic e (not natural form) & titanium dioxide & it has inadequate amounts in forms that are hard to absorb. See comment:. ...Read more
