Vitamins and supplements I have heard of are vitamin
b12, vitamin d, prenatal vitamins, calcium, zinc ,iron,
folate, then of course you have your vitamins a, c,
and e. There are so many different types out there
for our bodies and what we need. The main
supplements we need are vitamin c and d. These are
two very important supplements for our body because one
supports our immune system and the other supports our
bones. I believe that these vitamins are nutrition science
because each one of these vitamins are nutrients our
body needs to function on a daily basis. With out
these essential vitamins our bodies would be weak and
could cause physical and health damages. We do not
take in enough of these vitamins through out the day,
which is why its very important that you maintain the
nutrients we need in our body. Exercising and eating
right goes along with these essential vitamins. Its very
important to stay healthy to keep out immune system
up that way we can fight off any sickness that
try's to enter our bodies. I have heard of mostly
Vitamins D and C. I have heard of others but
mainly these 2 because both my niece and nephew
were vitamin d deficient and my nephew at the age
of two had to get all his baby teeth removed
because they either decayed or was extremely rotten. My
niece two front teeth had to be removed they where
so rotten they became infected. During that time I
was pregnant with my daughter and I wanted to
breastfeed my daughter like my sister did with her
children so I had to do some research on what
causes vitamin d deficiency. I ended up using vitamin
d drops that was FDA approved brands. I believed the
nutrition science because vitamins are needed to function
and for growth as well as to help our immune
system. when I get sick or even if I feel I'm
gonna get sick I use the emergency it's full of
vitamin C. I think the science of it is true because
everything we eat does not give us enough of the
nutrients we need to fight off colds or make sure
our bones are strengthen. That is why we take
vitamins to do what the food was not able to
contribute. The vitamins I have heard of are the
basics such as, Vitamin A, B, C, and D. I have
also heard of things like fish oil, folic acid, fiber,
and turmeric. One thing I have learned from being in
college is how to recognize a fake article/post/website. I
pay attention closely to where I get my information.
That is with just about anything. I look for FDA
approvals and I like to read the research on the
particular subject I am interested in purchasing and
consuming. But to be honest I am very interested in
science and the things that someone can learn from
Science. There are also companies that like to mimic
the latest trends. All in all the trend may be
something that works but when something works so does
everyone else's idea on it. You can buy something
that claims to do the same thing but for cheaper,
but this item has not backing. You have to pay
attention to the accreditation the Suppliers hold. You
don't want to take something that does not have the
proper credentials to making the product at all. It may
take more time to do research but what we learn
can help what you consume. The vitamins or supplements
I have heard of are Vita Fusion, Spring Valley and
Nature Made. I will decide if the information I
received is based in nutrition and science or not by
if you are ingest it and if it’s good for your
health or not. The specific examples to support my
response are vitamins D and vitamins D3. I have
heard of so many different nutrients nutrition best
supplements and vitamins such as Vitamin D CB B
12. When I was younger and my family ran ad
stray dog shelter that we put dogs up for adoption
in my step mom used to use certain types of
minerals that would help treat open wounds or sores
on dogs and or ringworm or things like that if
they've gotten them called the mineral silver. Almost as
if a clear water looking tasteless mineral but it
actually seen it work I'm feeling even humans dogs
anyting quicker when they had an open wound. Some
supplements that could be protein creatine mixed drinks
that you can use to get all your protein in your
nutrients for workouts or muscle building fat burning and
so on. The way that I tell anything when it comes
to nutrition and supplements if it is it all healthy
for you the nutrition facts will be posted right on
the side of whatever it is that you by listing any
vitamin mineral nutrient anything that you will be
investing it comes to nutrition orange nutrition facts it
is or will be posted on the container if not then
it does not have much or any nutritional value to
it. I have heard of many vitamins which include one
a day, multivitamins for children and prenatal, and
bariatric vitamins. I always compare labels to well known
vitamins, and ones that my doctor instructs me to
take. If I am unsure about what exactly the
vitamin/ingredients are I look them on the internet to
see what others have to say. These past few years
it has been brought to my attention that my son
and I both have vitamin D, and folic acid defiencies.
Our doctor prescribed supplements and since the vitamin
d is over the counter I had to grab something on
the shelves that matched the amount we needed per
day. When I was growing up my family would use
b12 vitamins for extra energy, and honestly looking back
they were taking too many for what was instructed.
Prenatal vitamins are important for mom and baby, and
helps keep everyone healthy. With having my weight loss
surgery it is important that I take my vitamins daily
since I can not eat a lot of food. Some of the
supplements and vitamins I have heard about would be
One A Day or this one called skinnyFit which is
a Peptides Powder. One of the vitamins I use in a
daily matter is a prenatal due to postpartum and helps
me with my cycle, so I believe it helps with my
nutrients such as iron or fibers. Over the years I
have read labels on bottles to make sure that there
is nothing that could affect my body I also look
for FDA approved that would support what to take
instead of taking anything given over the counter or
by prescription. When it comes to vitamins for my
children I look for the " USP" tag on the bottle
that it shows that it meets the requirements, not
everything is safe in the long run so you want to
make sure you read the bottles to understand what is
in the supplements and the side affects. I have been
given so may medications because some doctor only
predict what is wrong with you so In the long run
I continue to drink alot of fluids and a B12
vitamin to give me a boost. Vitamins and supplements
I have heard of are Women's One a Day, vitamins,
K, D, B12, B6, B8 biotin, folic acid and
multivitamins. I currently take Women's One a Day for
my pregnancy. It contains iron and folic acid. Folic
acid is beneficial to the baby's nervous system, so I
make sure I take them daily. B6 has helped me a
lot throughout my pregnancy for nausea. When I am
feeling tired, I make sure I take B12 and it gives
me a burst of energy.
A way I decide if the information I receive is
based in nutrition science or not is reading up on
the labels of the bottle. I can research the name
of the vitamin or supplement to see if it follows
the proper guidelines of the IOM(institute of medicine).
Another way would be to look for "USP" on the
label ensuring it meets the standards of the US
pharmacopeia. You want to make sure to read the
label carefully to understand exactly what is in the
supplements. Not everything is safe to take nor has it
been regulated by the FDA so you want to be
careful not to take just anything presented or given to
you. Some vitamins that I have heard of is Flintstones
for kids and also prenatal vitamins. The only vitamins
I have ever taken is prenatal vitamins. I believe that
they are based on nutrition science. Prenatal vitamins help
with the development of a woman's baby. They can
also help a woman hair and nails grow. Taking
prenatal vitamins are not just for women that are
pregnant. They can be taken before and after pregnancy.
As for the Flintstone vitamins, my four kids take
those. They enjoy taking their vitamins everyday. Those
vitamins help strengthen children immune system. Since the
pandemic is really when I started giving them vitamins.
My children rarely gets sick. I have noticed that over
these past couple of years since they have been taking
the vitamins, their skin is looking more clear and
nails are growing faster. As for myself, I do not
take vitamins like I know I should. I have tried
Emergen-C before. I have taken that if I feel like
I am coming down with a cold. That is just
vitamin C. I mix with water and drink it and
within 24 hours, I start feeling better. Some of the
vitamins or supplements that I have heard of is
multivitamins, B12, Vitamin D, and Vitamin C. The way
that I decide if the information for the vitamin is
based in nutrition science or not is by doing my
research on the vitamins or supplements before I purchase
or start taking the vitamin or supplements. I have
started taking Vitamin d and Vitamin C since the start
of the Covid 19 virus. Vitamin D and Vitamin C
helps boost your immune system to help you body
fight off viruses. For me since i started taking the
vitamins i have not got sick, even though before the
start i would only get sick maybe once a year, but
so far in the last year i have not got sick not
even once, and i do work from home now as well
so that may also play a big part in the vitamins
working really good as well. I really have no idea
when it comes to many of the vitamins or
supplements out there. I have tried Testosterones, proteins,
soy, and what ever else they put in to pre-workout
and post-workout supplements. I used to take them
everyday when I was in my youth and working out
everyday. I know that there are several more vitamins
and supplements out there now then when I was
taking them. I remember feeling great, running 8 miles
a day hitting the guy after a long day and still
being able to pump out some sets. After my injury
I couldn't go to the gym anymore so my diet went
to crap and I stopped taking the workout supplements.
Now a days, the vitamins that I take are folic
acids, B-12, and other stuff that the VA says I
need to take. I found out that my blood cells are
not being developed as they should and are more of
a tear drop shape, and they are not being absorbed
as they should. What does that mean?? More meds
and more vitamins, and most of all, more Folic Acid.
I have recently ( last month) had gastric sleeve
surgery along with that some of the vitamins i take
daily now are multivitamins , calcium, biotin, and B12
. From personal experience i have noticed when i
forget to take my vitamins i can tell my body is
not fully up to par. I feel sluggish and weak. My
hair falls out much more if i go days without
taking them. After surgery i attended some classes that
broke down the importance of taking the vitamins and
what ones are best to take. I will say that staying
hydrated is just as important. I was also taught
electrolytes will target the ares its needed and does
wonders for the body. After surgery i did a good
amount of surgery I was to nervous to not take
the physicians advice about taking daily vitamins. I do
have a friend who did the same surgery at the
same time and she doesn't take any vitamins an says
she feels fine. I think once i'm able to open up
to new foods i could be able to cut back on
supplements and base vitamins off food being consumed.
I have heard of tons of vitamins such as A, B,
B12, C, D, etc. I also have heard of supplements
for anxiety, weight loss, nervousness, probiotics, fish oils,
herbs, etc.The information I base on these vitamins and
supplements is based on if they are regulated. If they
are not regulated than I do not base them on
nutrition science. If they are regulated by a certain
association than yes I will base it off nutrition
science. Some of the vitamins I have heard of are
calcium, B12, Alive and prenatal. I have heard of
many vitamins, but these are some of the ones I
have taken in the past and now. I do believe that
these vitamins provide the nutrients they are supposed to
. I had to take calcium and potassium pills once
because my levels were low and after a few months
my levels were better. I currently take Alive one a
day women vitamin. They do give me energy, but my
nails and hair do not seem like they are growing
much from them like it claims they should do. Now
when I was pregnant with my children the prenatal
vitamins, I was taking gave me tons of energy. The
best thing I can say about those was that they
made my hair and nails grow a lot. I heard you
can still take them after pregnancy but I never really
looked much into it. Some of the vitamins I have
heard of are b12, iron, potassium, and multivitamins. I
think the information I received is really based on
nutrition science. I think if you do your research on
these vitamins you find out a lot of benefits from
them. Or even by taking them you can feel a
difference. A multivitamin has helped me a lot with
just overall engergy as well as hair and nail growth.
After having my baby I lost some of hair in the
front and taking the vitamin really helped with it
growing back. I think when it comes to taking
vitamins each person needs to do their research and
kind of decide for themselves. Even by giving them a
try and seeing how they feel with them. I have
heard of many different vitamins and supplements. I take
various ones for various reasons. I take iron, vitamin
D, vitamin C, biotin, potassium, a multivitamin and most
recently I started taking vitamin B12. Previously I thought
vitamins and supplements were a waste of money and
I did not take any. I read various reports on how
you should get enough vitamins from the food that
you eat, and if you take supplements, it does not
work well, and they are not absorbed into your body.
That all changed when I started having odd medical
issues such as unexplained dizziness, rapid heartbeat and
palpitations, and just generally not feeling well. I made
several trips to the ER and had various heart tests
performed and the only thing that they could find was
I was anaemic and was low on potassium. So, I
started taking iron and potassium supplements and a
multivitamin. Shortly after taking those supplements my
medical issues went away. After this I knew from
personal experience that taking supplements and vitamins that
your body is lacking do work and works very well.
xx I started taking vitamin C and vitamin D
daily because I read that those vitamins were helping
to defend against Covid 19, and I work night shift,
so I don’t get to see much of the sun. I
started taking biotin because I have very thin hair and
nails and I read that this could help with that
so far, I have not seen much evidence on this
supplement. Lastly, I recently started taking B12 because
I read that certain drugs you take can interfere with
your absorption for this nutrient, such as proton pump
inhibitors and I take Omeprazole.
xx When I am investigating a supplement or
vitamin, I try to read articles that are backed by
the government and not ones that are selling the
vitamin or supplement. I learned a lot from our
readings this week on vitamin supplementation, and that it
can harm you if you absorb too much .There are
many different vitamins such as Vitamins A, B6, B12,
C, D, E, and K. There are different forms of
multi vitamins for women, men, and children as well
as prenatal vitamins for pregnant women. I do take
multi vitamins. Not like I should, however I base my
information on the nutrient value. For example I deal
with being anaemic, so even though I wasn’t pregnant,
I would take prenatal vitamins because for me it
would help me out more that regular iron or regular
vitamins. I have also taken B Vitamins in liquid form
that would go under the tongue. B vitamins help out
with energy and metabolism. I believe the information is
based in science nutrition. Science has a way of
backing up any nutritional research. Vitamins are also
found in the food we eat so that the food supplies
us with nutritional value. I have been making the
necessary changes to make sure that the food I eat
is more nutritious. I also plan to be more consistent
with taking my daily vitamins for extra support. I
have heard of a few different vitamins or supplements
such as B-12, One a Day, and Vitamin C and D
to name a few. These vitamins I am sure many
people have heard of or may even take like myself.
I am not that consistent with my B-12 vitamins as
I should be but I do take them pretty often! I
have been using these vitamins for a while now and
I was introduced to them by my aunt. I also have
taken women’s vitamins as well for energy. If I am
not mistaken Vitamin C or D can help with your
immune system, I am not sure exactly which does
what. I am not really sure if the information about
these vitamins are nutrition scientific or not. B-12
prevents you from feeling weak and also helps with
your blood cells and things in that nature. It also
helps with weight loss as well. I have to get more
consistent with taking my daily vitamins like I have
been in the past because now I don’t take them as
often as I should. I have heard of many types of
vitamins and supplements, especially when I worked in a
pharmacy. I am very familiar with B-12 because I
was given shots while going through cancer treatments
and I still receive them monthly. I get blood tests
every few months to monitor my B-12 levels and
they are always low but without daily sublingual doses
and monthly shots, it is very low. When I feel
like my body may be lacking vitamins or nutrients, I
always talk to my doctor first to get his opinion.
Then I will ask my pharmacist for her opinion
because she is very knowledgeable about supplements, and
I trust her. Between working with my doctor and
pharmacist, I have come up with a daily regimen of
vitamins and supplements that work for me. I will
also research medical websites, like Mayo Clinic, to read
articles pertaining to what vitamins or supplements I may
need, also how and when I should take them. My
vitamin and supplement schedule will also change depending
on other factors in my life. For example, in the
winter when I get very little sunlight I will take
Vitamin D, then in the summer I do not need to
because I am getting plenty of sunshine every day.
Also, if I am having digestive issues and can not
eat the recommended servings of fruit and vegetables, I
will take Vitamin C. I have also learned to take
sublingual vitamins when possible to ensure that my body
is absorbing them, especially since I have digestive
issues. Whenever I look into buying new supplements or
vitamins, I tend to mostly look at reviews which is
really not a good way to research a product. I
usually just look at the promotional videos of the
company selling the product with them saying all the
beneficial ingredients that are within the product not
knowing myself if those ingredients are healthy or not.
A company I do enjoy buying from a lot is called
Bare Performance Nutrition, ran by a U.S. Army veteran.
Reason I looked into his company was because I was
also in the military at the time and was looking
for supplements that did not have anything illegal in
them that can pop up during my random pee tests
that was done throughout the year in the military.
Even though his company was still small, he by far
had the best tasting protein and pre-workout I have
ever tasted. Usually when I look at ingredients, I try
not to dive too deep into it. The main points I
am looking at is to make sure it is non-gmo,
gluten free and no artificial preservatives or sweeteners.
Luckily, his products do not contain non of those.If
anyone is ever looking for a green drink, I would
recommend checking his out. By far the best tasting
green drink that provides natural energy and boosts your
immune system.
There are always some new fad vitamin or supplement
coming out. I have been using collagen powder daily
in my coffee. This helps my hair, teeth, nails and
skin. I have noticed the benefit from using it
consistently. My hair is growing and my skin has
become clearer. I think that there is some benefits for
bones as well from taking it. I also started to take
apple cider vinegar gummies. This may just be the
next big fad, but I have noticed a difference in
my digestive health from taking them. My daughter is
really good about taking her daily multivitamin which has
all the needed vitamins in one instead of taking
multiple pills. I myself haven't been as on top of
taking vitamins as I should. I should start taking
calcium pills just because I don't drink milk.
Unfortunately, I cant say that I am taking these
vitamins and supplements because of science, more so I
am taking them because I see the benefits from others
and would like to see if they will work for me
as well. I, too, have heard of many different
supplements and vitamins for all sorts of things. Every
day there is something new being pushed out that
claims to improve or prevent health problems. I
personally take a daily vitamin, B Complex and collagen
powder. Vitamins and B complex have always been
recommended because we do not always absorb the
proper nutrients from diet alone. I do not think I
question that all too much because of multiple
recommendations for adults and children. I recently started
adding collagen to my drinks after researching benefits. I
also bought it to the attention of my primary care
physician who saw no issues with this kind of
supplementation. Collagen is used for tissue health, hair,
skin and nail health as well. It is said to have
important proteins, which is I think is most important
in our overall wellbeing. However, like everything else
there can be negative side effects. I have also looked
into those and concluded that the side effects are
minimal, and the benefits outweigh the risks. I have
heard of many vitamins like A, E, C, and D. The
supplements that I have heard of and taken are one
a day vitamins for women which are vitamins that
supplement to ensure that you are getting the
recommended daily amount needed. After our readings this
week, I realize that the supplement is not needed if
a proper diet is being eaten unless there is a
medical reason for taking them. According to Davidson
(2020), "Experts agree that vitamin supplements are not a
substitute for nutrients from food. Most healthy people in
developed countries who eat a varied diet high in
fruits, vegetables, and whole grains get enough vitamins
and do not need a vitamin supplement, although many
take a daily multivitamin as “insurance.” The exception to
this is vitamin D, which is found naturally in few
foods." Vitamin D can be gotten by simply spending
15 to 20 mins a day in the sun. This should
give a normal healthy person the dose of vitamin D
that they need for a day but using sunblock does
diminish the amount of vitamin D that your body
gets. I have heard about many different vitamins and
supplements. I know many people take them for different
things. I had to take vitamin D once because after
my blood work the doctor found my vitamin D level
was low. My mom takes different types of vitamins
like B12 and a daily women’s vitamins to help with
your overall health. How I decide on whether or not
it’s a good idea to take it is if I’m not sure
about taking it I ask my pharmacist when I go to
pick my medication up. I also ask my mom to see
what she thinks about it because I know she has
been on a lot of medication due to her illness she
has and also having to deal with my grandmother that
it was easy for the doctor to ask what she didn’t
have and what medications she wasn’t on verses what
she did have or what medications she was on. I
think it all comes down to it’s your choice what
you want to put in your body but it is good to
get an opinion. I have heard of many supplements
and vitamins. I have only take the B12 gummy
supplements to help with my energy level and also
Iron medicine to help build my iron and keep my
iron levels high. The way I go by taking supplements
i do my research on them medicine and I see all
the side effects, and I also get another Doctor to
get their opinion on the medication I will be taking.
For example undergoing my epilepsy I was taking one
kind of seizure medicine and it was not helping me
so my church member who is also a Doctor talked
to my mother about the medicine and she helped get
me off the medicine and I started taking another kind
of medicine that caused me not to have any seizures
or major side effects that I did not have to deal
with from the new medicine. Overall, I currently do
not take any medicine for one many medications that
we are taking now can affect the liver, I learned
that from my brother doctors and nurses when he was
battling cancer. You hear a lot about vitamins and
supplements, and what you put into your body is your
choice. xx I choice not to put any supplement into
my body because of my medical history. I have taken
some vitamins that I was told to take by my
physician. I took Vitamin D when my back hurt and
I felt a little on edge. After a sometime taking
this I felt so much better. I done the research and
there were studies supporting this. “The women received
vitamin D therapy for eight to 12 weeks to replenish
their blood levels. After treatment, their levels increased
to 32 to 38 ng/mL. The women also reported
corresponding improvements in symptoms of depression
following vitamin D therapy. I also to a B12 shot
when my levels were low in my blood work. My
physician taught me how to inject myself with these.
I know that people take these for energy, but I
only took these as long as my levels were low in
my blood work.I never really thought about my
information being based on nutrition science. I always
just went by what my physician said I need in
vitamins and took them.
