Vitamins

Recommended Posts

omg, my friend takes Juice Plus and he is a walking infomercial for them! They should seriously pay him. He talks so highly of them. I don't know what else is comparable. I know that with all vitamins, your body will only absorb what it needs at that moment and the rest is waste. I would probably go to a health food/vitamin shoppe type store and ask them.

The ones I take are fantastic! They were made by the famous Cooper Aerobic Center in Dallas by Dr. Cooper.

 

There is a kind you can take thats just a once a day, and a more serious kind with a lot more vitamins in it that you take twice a day (4 per meal). These must be taken with food like all vitamins, because the food is what absorbs the vitamin and distributes it thoughout the body. If you don't take vitamins, any vitamins, with food then it will upset your stomach.They are also different for men and women. The womens contain iron and are highly recommended for women in the prenatal years.

 

I know they are a little pricey, but I used to get sick every time the seasons changed, and since I've been taking Cooper Complete, I have not gotten sick once. Seriously, they are amazing.

 

Also, if you order them online, and use the discount code "runner" then you get some % off, maybe 15, but i'm not sure. Any discount is a good discount though. Here's the website if any of yall are interested.

I know it sounds like I work for the company or something, but I don't. Just a firm believer in their effects.

I found i was getting sick after taking vit. in the am, the problem is not the vits themselves. you need to take the vits. after you have eaten. if you have some toast or even a glass of milk before taking them you wont get nausous.

the funny thing is that I did eat before taking them, I don't know why but certain types just didn't agree with me, full stomach or not, lol!

I know this post is kind of old, but i thought i would post my 2 cents anway. I recently started seeing a nutritionist and she advised me to take vitamins. I told her that I have the same problem as you, some of them make me throw up. She said that you should never take solid vitamins, only gelcaps because they have a lot more nutritional value and because the solid ones have fillers that make people throw up.

Also you can take vitamins through IV. Not for me. But my husband's practice does it and when he doesn't feel well he does it. I thought it was weird but just an idea.

The best I've found nutrition and stomach-wise has been Rainbow Light's Just Once Women's One Multi from Whole Foods. I also used to feel like throwing up any other vitamins...these have been fabulous. Here they are on Amazon: Amazon.com: Rainbow Light Women's One Multivitamin 90 tablets: Health & Personal Care

 

If you can afford the Juice Plus, it really is amazing! My boss, an acupuncturist, swears by it. :)
