i do believe in vitamins.but i don't believe in taking vitamin supplements and that too synthetic ones to boast up my health.i like getting my vitamins and minerals from my diet.so i see to it that whatever is needed i get that from my diet.nature has got all those vital nutrients and vitamins.so why go for those laboratory prepared synthetic ones? and thats the reason why i go for healthy foods like green vegetables,salmon,nuts like almonds,brocolli,lots of fruits.even though i am lactose intolerant,i don't go for calcium tablets.instead i take calcium enriched foods like seaweed,oranges,wakame,beans,sardines etc. and touch wood till now i haven't found any problem with me that i have to rely on vitamin supplements.and i wish i don't have to anyday.

yes i do believe in vitamins..it helps boost energy strength during the busy days..it can be our shield from getting sick out of stress..sometimes we get stressed and all on our work..calcium can make the bones strong..it can prevent osteoporosis too thats why it is a must that we take some tablets a day..

I take vitamins mostly because my Dr said they are necessary for me. I don't eat a lot, so by taking the vitamins I'm assured I'm getting the proper vitamins, nutrients, minerals, and trace elements that my body needs to function well. Now that I've been taking them for quite a while, I notice a difference in my energy level, and a whole lot of other things. I think when we lead fast-paced lives we probably don't eat right, or eat the proper foods, and skip real meals in favor of 'something quick.' I like that there are no side effects with vitamins and that they're natural and good for you.

I am sitting here with a few vitamins in a cup right now, needing to get some more water. Magnesium is good for a lot of things, as well as for your back. I helps with muscle spasms, and headaches, too. I take B6 for arthritis pain. I take lots of vitamins, I would much rather do that than expensive prescriptions with dangerous side effects. I take vitamins and minerals because they are gentle to my body, good for overall health, and have few or no side effects. I take them because they work.
