Looking for unbiased advise on vitamins and supplements that I should be taking. I'm a 50 year old male and currently don't take anything. It's difficult nowadays to really understand what is a valuable supplement/vitamin and what is just marketing. Without going crazy does anyone have any suggestions.
I think vitamin D is an important one. You can get your levels checked and then take vitamin d for a few months if you are deficient (most people are) and recheck to see if you are back on track. Vitamin D usually is fat soluble which means having just before or after food helps with absorption of vitamin D by your body
well being a powerlifter i take a cocktail of stuff but i would start with a good multi and if your not doing anything or deficiaent in anything i wouldnt worry about it but i take multi, fish oil, joint complex, vit d high dose of 10 ui vit c, probitoic and taurine
Your doctor would be able to recommend the vitamins you need to take based on your medical history. Multi-vitamins are definitely a good one to take, although I suspect your doctor might disagree. Look for "fermented" vitamins; they are lot better than the OTC vitamins that come in chemical form with fillers.
