Question:Vitamins or Whole Foods?

What do you think is the better option, taking your vitamins or eating nutrient-packed foods? Or is a healthy mix the best choice?

What vitamins and whole foods do you lean on to stay healthy?

Answer:

Karadc -- Make sure you are eating some food before you take your vitamins. Taking them on an empty stomach will definitely make you feel sick.

Answer:

I've noticed after I take a multivitamin I feel almost nauseous...does that happen to anyone else? Guess I should try to eat healthier instead.

Answer:

I think it's always better to get your nutrients with your foods. Plus, it's good for your teeth to chew.

Answer:

I do a little bit of both. I take a multivitamin and some supplements but I try to eat healthy as well.

My favorite supplements are b-complex (which gives me energy) and fish oil capsules, which takes my aches away! I've also heard that vitamin d supplements are good to improve bone density and fight off cancer, but i also heard too much in your body is not good. So i stick to my b-complex and fish oil!
