Re: Multi-Vitamin recommendations for over 50 women

Sure...I read the reviews on the QVC site under Essential One with CoQ10. Also there is another thread on the wellness forum under side effects with his vitamins that I read.

I buy vitamins or supplements from Solgar or Bluebonnet on Amazon.

You may want to ask your doctor about what to take.

Re: Multi-Vitamin recommendations for over 50 women

I use either One Day 50+ or Centrum Silver.  I did get the Petite ones before all the covid stuff but I can't find those anymore.  Also take an extra D and B supplements. Not sure if it helps but I figure any help I can get at this point in my life is a bonus lol.

The one thing I’ve learned from Lessman is that tablets don’t completely dissolve and absorb.  I don’t buy his products but I always look for a softgel or powder capsule in what we do take.  We are Costco members and have been happy taking the same Nature’s Lab Multivitamins for some time. I don’t believe in separate multi vitamins for men/women.  I also don’t believe one capsule covers all our needs, so there are additional supplements we add.

I buy Centrum Silver or the store equivalent from Walmart Equate. Or online Sentry Senior, good price on amazon for 265 count.

My doctor specifically recommends Centrum Silver. I dont take a generic form. I follow doctors orders. Centrum Silver is designed specifically for seniors.

Re: Multi-Vitamin recommendations for over 50 women

I used to take ShopHQ’s multi by the reality show couple....Dubrowes?

 

But about 2-years ago, I started to actually read up on individual

viamins/supplements to find out which I felt I (or family member)

may benefit from.

 

As a result, I take about a dozen various products. I don’t mind, it’s such a routine which only takes a couple minutes.

 

I have read the pros/cons of  taking vitamins and I’d rather reap 

whatever benefits there are.  Especially since our food now does not have the same quantity of V/M as a century ago (due to over production).

 

I remember reading in the OT  section of the Bible (years ago) that every 7th year, 

the land should  *rest* ....although of course they did not know 

the medical/technical reasons.

 

As an aside:

A few years ago there was an *undercover*  report on Vitamins/Supplements that were sold in MAJOR PHARMACY CHAINS.

 

A slew of products were tested to find out if they were *legit* (so to speak).

They discovered that 80% ( !!!!)  did not contain what the label stated,

either in ingredients or quantity ( mgs.).

 

Immediately CVS stated that any V/S sold in thier stores had to be 3rd party tested for purity.

I don’t believe CVS knew the products on their shelves were basically 

fakes.

 

But I definitely trust CVS now.

 

If you are an Amazon shopper, there are several inexpensive brands 

that I buy.

For example, a twin pack of Nature’s Bounty Fish Oil  caps (total of 360)

are $14.95.

The same exact twin pack is $35 at CVS,

All that 3rd party testing cost money, lol.
