Vitamins

Vitamins will now be something that you need to think about every single day. eryday

Here is a list of what I take and when.  Please note that your doctor may suggest something different and even though I play one on TV, I am NOT a doctor.

I split my vitamins up between morning and night because some of them cannot be taken together.  I take the following in the AM:

  1.  Centrum adult chewable multi-vitamin 2 per day
  2.  65mg Iron daily
  3.  500mg vitamin C chewable daily
  4.  4,000 IU vitamin D3 three times a week
  5.  5,000 mcg vitamin B12 three times a week

I take the following in the PM:

  1.  Calcium Citrate with D3 two times a day
  2.  10,000 mcg Biotin daily
  3.  625 mg Fiber three times a week

Please make sure to take Calcium Citrate and NOT Calcium Carbonate.  The carbonate is easier to find but because you do not have as much stomach acid, they are hard to digest. It doesn’t necessarily matter what brand of vitamins you choose as long as you pick one and stick to it.  These vitamins will be something you will do for the rest of your life.  Stay away from gummy vitamins because they are high in sugar and you don’t want to be eating unnecessary calories (they can be up to 60 calories a piece).
