” whats your thoughts on vitamins and supplements ? good idea ? or is it something that can be balanced when grocery shopping? i know a lot of people are trying to go organic or have a more natural course of health care lately, and the thought just popped in my head about what you might take or what suggestions you have for someone who is changing their overall lifestyle and diets”

When I was growing up, my Dad believed that we needed to take a lot of vitamins everyday.  I was taking a total of 13 vitamins when I graduated from high school. In a small rebellious streak, I stopped taking any vitamins when I went to college.

When we decided to start trying to have a child in 2006, I started taking prenatal vitamins and took them until the day Drew was born.  I didn’t take any vitamins for a little while after I got out of the hospital and I noticed that I felt like I was missing something.  I started taking a Women’s One-A-Day multivitamin and because of my heart issues, I also started taking fish oil capsules every day. 

I eat mostly whole vegetables and fruits in order to maximize the amount of nutrients that I receive from each.  I believe that I can get a lot of my needed nutrients from the foods that I am eating, but I would be concerned that on a regular basis I would not be able to get all of the needed vitamins through my food alone.  For that reason, now I take an Ultra Women’s One-A-Day multivitamin and two fish oil capsules daily. 

Additionally, I keep Vitamin C and B12 on hand in case I am feeling run down or starting to feel like I might be getting sick.  At those times, I will take additional vitamin C and B12 to help my immune system get back on track. 

As far as supplements are concerned, it is my understanding that they are more beneficial for athletes and competitive fitness people/weightlifters.  Since I do not qualify for either definition, I do not take any supplements. 

I would definitely suggest to everyone to take a multivitamin every day at the very least.  If you have any other deficits, such as anemia or vitamin D deficiency, you should look at adding additional vitamins to help your body repair itself and run at its peak efficiency.
