It’s been awhile since we had a poll.
I’m just chewing on a Vitamin C and wondering how many of us take supplements.
Me, I take a multi-vitamin, plus Vitamin D (to prevent cancer), and calcium (to prevent osteoporosis). I just added a few chewable Vitamin C tablets to the regime (for stress).
Throughout my life I’ve occasionally taken vitamin supplements regularly, but for the most part I haven’t bothered. I’ve never detected, during any of my vitamin kicks, any difference in my health or mood. Sometimes I wonder if it’s all a big scam. (I don’t think it is. But wouldn’t it be nice to actually feel better for all the stuff we’re taking?)
My GP is a huge proponent of Vitamin D. She says that living in Canada, we could lie outside naked all winter and still not absorb enough Vitamin D from the sun. She says the research shows it plays a critical role in preventing cancer. She’s been telling me this for years, but I only started taking it regularly after I got cancer. Naturally.
Speaking of naturally, what about herbal remedies, like Ginkgo Biloba and St Johns Wort and so on? Do you take any of those? Do you think they work?
