Thread: Poll: What vitamins do you take?

    Poll: What vitamins do you take?

    I've noticed a lot of posts touting the affects of different vitamins and supplements on SCIs.

    How about a poll on what vitamins and supplements people take and why?

    Each day I give my L1 son:

    A multivitamin (no iron)
    Two 400mg Citrical calcium supplements to keep bones strong
    Two cranberry concentrate pills to reduce UTIs
    A vitamin C pill -- 500 mg for general good health
    A low-dose B-complex vitamin pill because I read it's good for nerve health
    Ugh, I've been kissed by a dog!
    Get some hot water, get some iodine ...

    Are you giving him vitamin d with the calcium?
    He needs it to promote calcium absorbtion.

    Iron occassionally.

    And from Fuente, Gold Standard Optimum whatever 100% whey protein shakes .. but not every day (I should, but I don't). 24g of protein.

    Daily Supplements:
    Cranberry/Vitamin C
    Garlic
    Glucosamine Chondroitin
    Gingko Biloba
    Flax seed oil
    Acidophilus
    Vitamin B complex

    seems a bit excessive when I write it in a list like this, but I take no other medication and these seem to keep me in fairly good nick!
