Should I be taking these vitamins

Hi,

I'm 19 and living at home for another couple of months until I move to uni. For years my mum has been giving be a coulple of things to take every morning. I have full trust in my mum however I think it would be reckless not to check this myself.

Every morning she gives 2 Omega Capsules, 1 multivitamin Capsule and 1 Vitamin C Capsule.

Should I be taking these every morning and why does no one else my age that I know not take them? My mum is very much obsessed with nutrition.

I don't have any deficiencies nor do I have any kind of disease or condition.

I'm perfectly healthy. I just can't understand why I'm taking these. My mums answer is that everyone should be taking these however I think thats crazy. When I leave I'm going to stop taking them.

You should check with your doctor since you might not need these vitamins. One of the doctor shows on tv actually addressed the issue of vitamins and vitamin c and that people really do not need to take it as much as they are. Most think it fights colds but it may not be necessary.having said that, I take omega 3 daily, calcium and a multi vitamin but I'm a lot older than you.

If you Feels like you are healthy then you don not need to eat capsules. Ask your mom about capsules. Ask your Friends or See a chemist.

Re: Should I be taking these vitamins

A high quality multivitamin and mineral supplement is good for our bodies because the soil has been depleted through commercial farming. For example, it would take about 40 times as much spinach to get the equivalent nutritional values of spinach in years past. The key is finding a mineral that is readily absorbed through the intestinal wall, rather than re-crystalizing once it gets into the intestines.

I believe, that your body is capable of manufacturing , needs from the food we eat provided we eat variety of food. if we do not have variety in our food then you need to eat Minimum required Dose multi vitamin and mineral capsules at least every third day to ensure, you body immunity is intact
