50+ blokes, multivitamins
You’ll only feel better if you’re severely lacking in something. The likelihood is you are not. If you have a balanced then it’s pointless. You’re body can only absorb a certain amount of the stuff so any excess will be going down the toilet. One of the biggest scams of our modern times.Posted 5 months agoMSPSubscriber
The science seems to back that most people could benefit from vitamin d and omega 3 supplements, so I take those. I also take a quality multi vit & mineral supplement, minerals are probably more important than the vits.
Non of these are a magic pill, they are not going to suddenly make anyone full of beans after taking one pill, they just contribute to better overall health over time, and for anyone active we are perhaps looking at keeping our health optimal not just getting by waiting for death.
It is also interesting to note that modern farming methods produce much less nutritionally dense food than in the past, even making healthy choices we are not getting the nutrients from the same food past generations were.
Now I am fast approaching 50 I was thinking of seeing my doctor about having a health check every 6 or 12 months including doing a bloods work, to see if I am deficient in anything and to see off any early health problems. I know I can get it done for free every 3 years, but paying for it more frequently is probably a better investment than most of the stuff I waste my money on.
As the saying goes, I don’t just want to put years in my life, I also want to put life into my years.Posted 5 months agoshermer75Member
It’s all woo, but if it’s a woo that you can get behind then crack on- the resulting positive mental attitude is now understood to have a substantial beneficial effect on your health, possibly because it gets you up and moving about more, which is what your body needs, especially with things like osteoarthritis but a whole raft of other (generally pretty nasty) diseases alsoPosted 5 months agoFunkyDuncMember
I’ve always found that the ones in cool looking packaging work well.
It’s also gauging the price too. Too cheap and you just know they won’t work. Too expensive, well the companies just taking the piss aren’t they !!?!
So for me it’s packaging and price point that give me the best placebo effect, let’s face it who knows what all these vitamins are / doPosted 5 months agoMSPSubscriber
There are plenty more sources available, that one is quite brief. To be honest I thought it was pretty common knowledge, I am surprised you were not aware.Posted 5 months ago
