I've started on a healthier lifestyle and want to include vitamins in my diet. What do you ladies take?

Anyone take shakes as well to supplement a meal?

Protein Powder, Multi-Vitamin, etc. on Jan 08, 2015 @ 11:56 am

Congrats and good for you on starting a healthier lifestyle!!

For multivitamins, I like the "One A Day for Women." Multivitamins can sometimes be expensive, but they do sell this brand in a big bottle at Costco, so if you're a member it's quite inexpensive to get there.

I don't think supplements in the form of pills per se are the healthiest option to be honest, BUT there is a really good protein powder for shakes called "Vega One." It is plant-based, and contains zero gluten and dairy!! It thickens nicely, and it has a range of flavours (Vanilla Chai, Chocolate, Vanilla, Very Berry). I love it.

You're welcome! I hope you like it :)

Here is the ChickAdvisor link to the flavour that I personally love the best (Vanilla Chai). As well, some people reviewed some tasty ways to blend it in the blender.

Been using this for years.... on Jan 08, 2015 @ 01:40 pm

Hi there! I've been using the Swiss One 50 vitamins for years now... my doc recommended them to me once and said they cover basically everything, so I stuck with it.

I just bought a multivitamin (WalMart brand) No idea if it's any good, because when I got home I realized there was no break down of vitamins/minerals on the bottle. I guess I have some further research to do.
As for shakes, I make my own smoothies. I buy frozen chopped Kale and add 1/2 c to my Magic Bullet blender, add a dollop of greek yogurt, some chocolate Almond Breeze almond milk and flash frozen fruit (strawberry, mango, pineapple, peach)

One a day for women.

Vitamin choices seem to vary with age/sex/geography/diet on Jan 16, 2015 @ 04:15 pm

I'm now a convert to vitamins I can chew. I spent years dreading the swallowing of some "horse sized" pills. I think the vitamins you take depend on your age and geography. I live in an area where we all told to take Vitamin D 1000-2000 mg/day. I'm at the age (51 Years ) when I need to take extra calcium. I think its worth doing the research on the recommended daily allowances for your age/gender/ etc and then look at your diet and figure out what is missing!

Multis as my back-up on Jan 23, 2015 @ 08:33 am

One a Day - Women. I've been taking multi vitamins my whole adult life because I know I don't eat as well as I should and almost never eat fruits (just don't like them). I tried discount ones (especially when in school) but some years ago a dr told me that the ones like One a Day use versions of the vitamins which are more easily digested. I recently started taking Vit D - because a very high percentage of Canadians are too low on it in our dark winters... but you can't take Vit D within an hour of coffee... so I'm always forgetting!!!
