View Full Version : Supplements
Since I am pretty new here, I don't know if this has been asked or discussed before, but:
1) Do you nice folks take any supplements?
and if so,
2) Which ones - what kind??

I take a multivitamin/multimineral and B vitamins. I also have a tablespoon of flax oil in my smoothies.
I may not need the extra vitamins after I spend more time raw, but we'll see how that goes :)
Here are some links that people have previously posted on about various supplements:
Vitamin D (http://www.rawfoodtalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=17739&highlight=supplements)
Too much potassium? (http://www.rawfoodtalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=17696&highlight=supplements)

Those are just a few... use the banana search option and type in vitamins or supplements :) Hope this helps!

I take B12 when I think of it which is not very often. I am having my blood tests this week and interested in checking my B12 anf folic acid levels.

Sport - for B12, you want to check the Methylmalonic Acid (24 hour urine test) and urinary or plasma homocystine. Serum B12 tests are not as sensitive.
For Folic Acid - Formiminoglutamic acid, urinary homocystine tests are best.
This info is from Tired of Being Tired by Dr. Michael Schmidt.
I am getting these tests and others done this week.

I take a lot of vitamins almost every day. I have a bunch stocked up. When I run out, I will go without for a while to see how I do.
As of now, I take: Probiotics, calcium/magnesium, whole food multivitamins, biotin, b complex, flax seed oil, borage oil, and DHA. I think that's all of it.
