View Full Version : Anyone Taking Multivitamins?
07-14-2011, 09:00 AM
I was watching Food Matters last night and they talked heavily about the importance of vitamins and vitamin therapy for healing. I found it fascinating and quite disturbing how our Health industry shuns vitamins as the evil culprits when we all know that's not true. But i know people worry about getting enough vitamins from their greens consumption so i wonder do you take a vitamin daily just in case? I don't think a vitamin is a way of getting out of eating more greens because i love my greens but i'm still wondering if taking it for extra boost would be ok? Also i see people post about not getting enough of something(b 12, iron etc.) maybe taking a daily vitamin would help solve that?

with the exception of b-12 which there is so much debate about that I wonder if anyone really knows which way is up with it, you shouldn't NEED to supplement ... imo. Have you checked out cron o meter ... google it and get it if you want to see what you may or may not need. No point buying stuff you don't need but good to see if there is something you DO need.

I only supplement with a b12 sublingual twice a week, and vitamin D2 in the winter since I live too far north to get enough from sunlight then. Otherwise I get everything else I need from food, and I second the mention of cron-o-meter as its a good program to see if youre getting enough of everything. :)

According to China study, they came up with the vitamin supplement with his research about the role of each vitamin. He says that it won't work and will clutter your liver. The best to do, is to eat as much variety of raw food, produce of different colour.
Monitor your B-12. You can have the good B-12 absorbable for your body from bee pollen (make sure you have no allergy to it), chlorella, whole mushroom and nutritional yeast. It has been know that taking Kobucha is good for B-12. The other way, is to grow you garden and not to wash your greens. The bacteria from the plant will generate a chemical that which your body will transform this chemical into B-12.
Now again, monitor your B-12 with the urine test. Google the B-12 Japan study for more information. I had to supplement. I was nursing for 4 years and i also didn't eat much of the food that i mentioned.
Supplementing with Vitamin D on winter or eat mushroom
K3 is found in nato (fermented soy bean) because it is fermented, it is consider alive. It is a japanese breakfast. There is theory that your body will fabricate it with the K2 from plant food.
Maca could be good to take, chlorella, and spirulina.
Raw food is packed with vitamin and nutrient already.
All the best

I just had to look it up again, but I really like this (http://m.youtube.com/index?desktop_uri=%2F&gl=US#/profile?user=Freelea)video as it has a lot of good information on b12.

I do take multivitamins, B12, Folic acid, iron, and Vitamin D. I have a problem absorbing nutrients, so I have to supplement to actually absorb the amount I need, not necessarily GET the amount I need, if that makes sense. I'm also anemic, and have elevated homocystein in my blood (the folic acid helps control this). Actually, I was able to quit taking this ridiculously expensive prescription the doctor had me on, and just take one Folic acid supplement a day. Why don't doctors tell you you can do these things in a more natural manner??
