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


#3

Yes, you.

vitamin D every day

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


#10

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!


#11

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.


#12

Nothing crazy just:

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


#13

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


#14

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.


#15

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


#16

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


#17

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…


#18

Quite a lot of monosodium glutamate.


#19

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.


#20

vitamin d is good

might start popping some iron
