    I take a multi, a B complex and biotin (nails/hair). I don’t believe in taking appetite suppresants or diet pills, if my body is telling me to eat, I will eat. What about drinking green tea? I guess it can work like an appetite surpressant once you’re full of tea! ha

    I take Saint John’s wort for mood, and I can really tell a difference. I’m a nervous, anxious, worrying type, and this helps a lot. I’m looking forward to hearing others’ answers. I’ve been looking for something that is good for energy (I may try B12) and something that actually supresses one’s appetite for a long time.

    I don’t take any of that stuff. I’m a believer that you just piss it all away. I’d rather save my money and use it to buy those expesnive, organic vegetables that are full of naturally-occurring vitamins and minerals supplied in a context our body and metabolism understands.

    I take a multivitamin and valerian root (a natural muscle relaxer- just at night).  I do really like to drink Kombucha (it is just expensive) and I also like green tea.  For me, when I feel hungry after eating it is often because I just can’t digest, and tea really helps.  When I am hungry I just try to eat something healthy that I love (Annie’s Cowgirl ranch, romaine lettuce, walnuts and tomatoes.  Yum!)

    I try to take a multivitamin when I remember to take it with food.

    Can I suggest Benefiber instead of miralax?

    my current vitamin/supplement arsenal includes:

    – multivitamin (GNC womens; I’ve noticed a marked improvement in my hair/nails!)

    – probiotic (helps me feel less bloated, keeps me regular)

    – grape seed extract (I have REALLY low blood pressure and this seems to help with circulation)

    – ginko biloba (again with the low blood pressure; this helps with oxygenation of the blood)

    – glucosamine/chondroitin (helps with joint stiffness; my BFF is a pharmacist and she highly recommended it for overall joint health; I started it recently, so no major progress yet)

    I voted Multivitamin, Diet Pill and Additional Supplement Misc.

    I take a One a Day Women’s Gummy, green tea extract (my “diet pill”), gummy calcium and omega-3.

    Very rarely I will take melatonin if I haven’t been sleeping.

    Aside from my multivitamin, I have taken cranberry tablets in the past to prevent UTIs.  I don’t know if they actually helped or not, but I never did get a UTI.  Occasionally, I will take melatonin to help me sleep. I used to take a refrigerated probiotic, but I haven’t taken that in awhile.  It did seem to help with my digestion and helped keep me regular.  Normally, I will also pop a few Tums at night for calcium as well, but I’ve heard that the body doesn’t absorb that kind of calcium very well.

    I find this thread very interesting. I have been looking at different natural supplements (for no particular reason), but was not sure if they were worth the money.
