According to the CDC, data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination survey found that nearly 58 percent of U.S. adults over the age of 20 have taken a dietary supplement within the last 30 days. The most common dietary supplement are multivitamins, followed by vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acid supplements. Interesting!
Do you take a vitamin every day? If so, is it a multivitamin? Or do you take specific (or multiple) vitamins for certain needs?
As always, thanks for voting. Please be patient if the poll takes a few moments to load.
I take a handful (6-7) of vitamins and supplements daily. I have a 7-day/compartment pill organizer that I fill periodically to avoid opening so many different bottles each day. Additionally, I “pound” vitamin C (3 Airborne gummies) if I feel a bit “off.” Alternately I have no prescribed pills or treatments. Perhaps the vitamins are helping me maintain my health (in addition to giving revenue to the vitamin/supplement companies I patronize). 😎
My wife and I take a multivitamin every day. With the exception of getting Covid last year, we rarely get a cold and I can’t remember the last time either of us had the flu. We will be 70 years old this year and have never had a flu, pneumonia, or shingles vaccine. I do drink about a gallon of water every day and no carbonated drinks. Can’t stand beer. We do have a glass of wine occasionally but not regularly.
It was discovered, when I take daily vitamins, I come down with upper respiratory infections. After several studies by doctors and clinics, they determined, no one can figure it out, that I get sick when taking vitamins. Without the supplements, all my levels are normal. Needless to say, my answer was “No.” I also do not take pain meds after medical procedures. I get by on acetaminophen and ibuprofen.
Acetaminophen and ibuprofen are pain meds.
We take vitamins and have for many years. Centrum Silver, Fish Oil, Vit. D and in addition, I take Glucosamine-Chondroitin and my wife takes Calcium. We also supplement with Vit. C if tho’t to be exposed to someone with a cold, etc. We haven’t had colds or anything else for at least 8 or so years and our Doctor is on board with it. So we are in great shape for the shape we are in! We both seriously lack exercise however!
Stay Away From Big Pharma!! Vitamins Sourced From America, Are A Wonderful Supplement To Your Good Health…
I take a vitamin D every morning.
I have taken a handful of vitamins everyday for 49 years. I’m 68 and look mid to late 50’s I am repeatedly told. That I exercise 4-6 days a week for 48 years also helps. I have been a one-legged man for 36 years.
Not vitamins, but fish oil, CoQ10 and calcium supplements.
I take a calcium supplement (I don’t drink milk) and a fish oil every day. I don’t consider them vitamins.
Nope. Get everything with my food intake.
I voted multiple vitamins even though I forget most of the time! Maybe I should go take them now since I have been reminded!
Yes, among other things.
I take a multivitamin and vitamin C, I believe that’s the main reason I don’t get the flu or COVID
Vitamin D per Doctors Recommendation.
