I feel so much better when I take my vitamins. Do you? What do you take?
In a nutshell, I take:
Mulitple vitamin and mineral QD
1200 mg Calcium with 500 mg of magnesium
120 to 600 mg (the later for driving a long trip) of gingo biboli
400 i.u. of Vit. E
500 to 1500 mg. Vit C (the later for feeling the need for extra protection)
Green Tea with Echinacea if I am feeling run down or want added protection
An estrogen vitamin replacement PRN called Estrotimes (it works fabulously for those flash moments)
I used to see an Acupuncturist regularly but have not in over 6 monthes due to unavailibility of having one. He would give me additional herbs. Honestly, I seem to be doing just fine without them.
I now refuse to work nights; Working nights was @#$% on my body and mental health. I work frequently but when I am off I rest a lot and drink lots of fluids. Trying to eat mostly veggies and low sweets (I struggle with a chocoholic tendancy when I want/have to be naughty).
Any ideas on weight loss suplements?
I would love to hear how you take care of your health! Please make comments!
Happy, prosperous, and safe New Year to you ALL!

I take "One-a-day"-women's formula multivits. They have extra iron and calcium. Also, when I am feeling a little run down or like I might be coming down with something, I take "Wellness Formula." It's a herbal defense complex made by Source Naturals.
Drink lots of water and green tea!
