Wow! You go girl! 

I’m just trying to remember to take:

Fish Oil Pill

Vitamin B-12

And a Flinstone Vitamin 😉

 

I used to have Women’s Multi, but I forgot to take them and now they’ve expired :/

I’m also trying to drink my water (my weakness… my Fiance’s strength).  He always has a water bottle in hand!

I am horrible about taking vitamins but now that I’m working out I make sure to take my womens "one-a day" I also take green tea & fish oil pills. Out of curiousty, you mentioned apple cider vinegar, do you take this in pill form or drink it? Also, what about the flaxseed, is this better then the fish oil pills?

Can someone give me some advice on what brand of multi vitamin to take? I bought a bottle of once a day multi and it made me throw up about 5 minutes afterward. Not preggers, but it physically made me sick and I had already eaten breakfast. So that kind of deterred me to try again, so I am looking for new brands… Any advice?

Vic004, I actually take Flintstone’s Multi Vitamin- chewables. The one labeled "complete" is pretty comparable to the Women’s One-a-day vitamins. I found it much easier on my stomach, and much easier to take because I just pop one in any time and go. I didn’t have to worry about swallowing a pill.

I take pre natal vitamins. we don’t plan on having kids for a few more years but it never hurts to start planning early.  I am just now starting them, in hopes that it will make my hair grow faster and my nails grow stronger

I would take pre-natal vitamins but I heard a lot of people get sick off them (including my sister).  I have a REALLY weak stomach so I don’t think that’ll work for me.  Although I’d love for my hair & nails to grow!

I’m also taking a pre natal vitamin and I eat Total Raisin Bran (with its claim to fame being all kinds of vitamins).

One thing to keep in mind- if you are on any medications, you really should check with your doctor/pharmacist.  Many seemingly harmless vitamins and supplements have drug interactions (either making the drug less effective or being harmful in combination).

Definitely take your vitamin on a full stomach if it is making you sick – or just switch vitamins completely (but still take with a meal). 

I take a Women’s Once-A-Day vitamin.  I was on a kick for awhile where I was also adding psyllium powder to water, but I had to choke it down & literally had tears streaming down my cheeks from gagging.  I can’t even remember what it’s *supposed* to do for you, but I figure it wasn’t really worth it

Anyway, more than anything, my doctor suggests just a simple daily multivitamin.  It’s all you need!

Thanks Miss Techie! I will look into the pill form because I have a weak stomach and know I won’t be able to drink it 🙂

@ Vic004 even after I eat a full meal and take a womens one-a-day I throw up also, so now I take all my vitiams at night right before I go to sleep, for someone reason my stomach just can’t handle any sort of vitiamin during the day. You might want to try at night too.

@vic004 – Try switching to vitamins in gel-cap format (rather than tablets)  They are easier on the stomach and easier to swallow.  I take Progressive vitamins.  They have a formulation for Women and also for Active Women.  Because they are in gel-cap format, you have to take it three times a day, so I take mine after every meal.

I actually take vitamin B6 (helps with anxiety), lithium orotate (helps with mood swings–especially helpful during that time of the month), vitamin B12, Omega 3s (you have to freeze them otherwise it will taste like fish when you burp! eww!) and vitamin K (which has shortened my periods by a day!)

I feel great!
