How to Get All the Vitamins You Need

Do you take your vitamins and other health supplements on a daily basis?

They say, eat good nutritious foods and a balanced diet can do the trick. Basically, food is the best source of vitamins- but sometimes it is not enough that you eat three times a day to sustain your body's need for energy and growth, you also need to nourish your body with vitamins and supplements. They can help aid with the loss and lack of nutrients from what we are taking and as well as combating the exposure to harmful effects that surround us.

Also, another fact, our body tends to lessen the absorption of vitamins from the food we eat as we grow older. That is why we need to take supplements to aid this loss.

Vitamins are widely promoted, the variety of brands are endless; whether locally produced or imported from other countries. It is also one of the biggest industry when it comes to nutrition, health, and wellness. Multivitamins come in many forms such as pills, liquid, and also powder-based. You can choose what is best for you, the availability and of course, budget-wise. It can also support a specific need of your body.

Daily intake of multivitamins can boost all the needed nutrients in small doses, from A-Z. Individually prepared vitamins and minerals target the specific needs. The dosage depends on age and body weight. Some of the things needed to be considered. Also, there are prescription vitamins that your physician can require due to some impending medical condition.

I was prescribed by my doctor months back to add Vitamin B-complex to my daily vitamin intake; which is Vit. C, iron supplement and calcium. I was convinced by the sales clerk at Watsons pharmacy a local drugstore to add more than my prescription vitamins to save more. Since it was vitamins I was not hesitant to buy and stock up. Surprised to see that I saved almost 40% of the total cost of my purchased Watsons brand vitamins.

Watsons Comply N Save made me save Php247.50 (US$4.86) from the total of Php825 (US$16.17). That is Php5.77 (US$0.12) for three vitamin tablet daily.

100 tablets each of Vit.B complex, Vit.C, and Ferrous Sulfate, that will last for 100 days/3months use. This can be shared with adult family members. 
Along with your fruits, vegetables, and grains, incorporate your diet with vitamins for a healthy body.

Are you very particular with the brand of your vitamins?

  8. I take a few supplements to counteract some of the side effects from my medication that treats my rheumatoid arthritis. My hair falls out from taking Methotrexate, thankfully, my hair is super long so it's not noticeable. But it is alarming when I pull out a huge clump of hair after I brush it.

  23. I take vitamin supplements everyday because I know I cannot get all the vitamins and minerals my body needs from the food I eat. I will have to check Watson's prices. It sure looks like they are offering a good deal on supplements.
