Vitamins for women?

Melanie H

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.

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....

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.

Equate Brand

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)

Vitamin choices seem to vary with age/sex/geography/diet

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

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!!!
