Yup, every day I take one of each of these: calcium, biotin, flax seed oil and multi.  Should probably be doing two calciums and two flax seed oil, but I always forget at night — I take my vitamins with O.J. after my cereal every morning!

I have women’s multi vitamins in my cupboard but I never remember to take them.

i found recently that the Women’s One-a-Day’s make me throw up!  It was really strange.  I would eat it after my breakfast too.  So weird.  So anyway, long story short, no vitamins for me!  I have discussed this with doctors and they say that if you’re eating a fairly balanced diet that you don’t really need the supplements.  Calcium is a bit different…I wish I could make myself remember!

mind you, i am not a doctor, but do you eat fruits and veggies? if so, it’s not really necessary to take vitamins. i was on a huge health kick a few years ago and read (almost) everything i could get my hands on on nutrition. there’s a lot of information out there, but one thing i found that was really interesting were articles relating to vitamins and how they are just designed to make money. sure, it’s obvious they are there to make money, but the way they advertise sometimes makes it seem like they are absolutely necessary. and they’re not. just eat a variety of fruits and veggies (++ if they are organic and localSmile) and you will get plenty of vitamins. plus, i think it’s better to get my vitamins from natural sources rather than chemicals. just wanted to put it out there……not knocking anyone who takes vitamins.

haha…kara posted before me….at least you can see she talked to doctors Wink. there’s lots of veggies that supply calcium. you’d be surprised at how much calcium you can get from some veggies, as opposed to drinking a glass of milk. you don’t need to drink milk. now milk….that’s a whole other story.

I take a multi, iron, calcium and D.  I’m low on the last 3, and figured that a multi can’t hurt.

I take multi and calcium since I really hate milk and my FI is convinced I will get osteoperosis if I don’t take supplements 🙂

I take a multi, I know it’s debatable whether it’s necessary but I’m not sure I’m getting everything from my food.

I found this great website called Women to Women.  I was having some issues of my own and did a search online.  They are actually 2 female gynocologists who have developed vitamins and herbal supplements.  I spoke to my gynocologist about this and she has definitely heard of them.  She was please with everything I was taking.  And the great thing is the vitamins come in little packets.  I take 2 packets a day, one in the morning and one at night along w/1 herbal supplement.

I can tell you this, I’ve been on these for almost 3 months and I’ve never slept better.  Now if it will just jump start my libido  Wink…we’re gettin’ there!

I take Perfectil which is a women’s vitamin for hair, skin and nails. It has chromium in which is good for PCOS.

I also take biotin for hair growth (which bride isn’t trying to grow their hair for the wedding!). I’ve been taking it about 6 weeks and my mum really noticed my hair has grown.
