Hi everyone. I am 34 years old and a mother of 3. I need to start taking better care of myself which include vitamins. Dometime i have elevated blood pressure due to stress. Which vitamins should I take? Has anyone taken Magnesium? There are so many types out there and I'm confused which one would be best.

You should ask your doctor or your local pharmacist they would be able to tell you some good suggestions

the doctor or at least a pharmacist consult. Or a naturopath. The doc and even the naturopath can do some blood test to figure out what are you actually missing. A lot of vitamins and minerals come from food so if you eat a balanced diet you might not need any supplements. Taking un-necessary supplements puts a strain on your liver and kidneys, especially for the fat soluble stuff, and the water soluble stuff gets removed from your body via urine - and considering how expensive vitamins etc are, that could make for a very expensive pee.

I agree with seeing a doctor first and doing a blood test to know whether you have any vitamin deficiencies before taking supplements. Complex vitamins B12 as well as magnesium can help calm your nervous system and Omega 3 can help with cardiovascular health. Just make sure you consult with a doctor first and try eating your vitamins in food form rather than pill format. Some vitamins like iron pills and supplements don't contain the highest quality minerals and they're not the way our bodies were meant to consume vitamins in the first place. Always try to go natural first of you can. You could consult a dietician or naturopath for this.

I actually just started taking magnesium citrate tablets to help with anxiety and stress and I think im already noticing a difference :) I guess magnesium is a really good vitamin for calming the nervous system.
