youse taking any?

guy i work with was all over them. multivitamins every day, would hammer the vitamin c whenever he felt a cold coming on. melatonin for sleeping. garlic powder for… some reason.

worth doing?


You should take folic acid if there’s a chance you could get pregnant, but that’s it.


Yes, you.


vitamin C + zinc effervescent every day
vitamin D every day


do you notice a difference when you don’t take them?






EPO and buckfast



phil gaimon was talking about them on his youtube cycling program, had me thinking about them.

multivitamin and some oil… fish oil or something? i think he was suggesting


Before I started working with children I was very sickly and would get a cold if someone sneezed near me. Now I get a cold once a year for about 3 days!


I do use a lot of antibacterial hand soap though. And if I can feel myself getting ill, I will cane the echinacea tablets. I feel the vitamins do help a lot to prevent getting sick and making the sickness less intense, rather than stopping you feeling ill once you’re already ill iykwim.


Nothing crazy just:

fish oil
vitamin C
turmeric (mostly for the anti-inflammatory properties)


Used to take echinacea until i read that it doesn’t have any beneficial effect


This is the one pretty much everyone in the UK should be taking, innit. Most others are just a good way of making expensive urine.


they’re not that expensive though? saw a bottle of 100 for like a quid


Vit D. Could easily be a placebo effect but i’m sleeping like a toasty nan and feeling a lot more chipper


Yeah I always feel more awake/in a better mood once I’ve taken vitamin D. Probably also because I’m more awake by that point in the morning…


Quite a lot of monosodium glutamate.


I was just about to say that - 3 months of Multivitamins and Iron is £3.

I’m sure drinking craft beer is a far more expensive way of generating urine!

Anyway, I started taking the above when I got diagnosed with high blood pressure, just in case I was deficient in anything.


vitamin d is good

might start popping some iron
