I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend.
Here's my question. . .
I'm trying to improve my health overall, and am taking vitamin supplements & just want to check in with those of you here who are supplement takers. . .
This is what I am taking:
~ calcium/magnesium (3 pills = 1000mg calcium, 500 mg magnesium)
*each pill taken spaced throughout the day
~vitamin d 400 iu taken twice a day (with the am and pm cal/mag pill)
~multi vitamin (I take this at dinner w/ evening cal/mag pill) w/
*400 iu vit. d,
*2,500 iu vit. A (50%)
*100% RDA of C, E, K, Folic Acid, Iron, Zinc, Selenium, Copper, Manganese
*125% RDA of B1, B2, Niacin, B6, B12, Pantothenic Acid,
*20% RDA Calcium
*13% RDA Magnesium
So, all in all, I'm taking ~1200 iu VItamin D
Do you think this is too much D? I've read a lot about D lately and want to make sure that I am taking enough, but not overdoing it. . .I don't get a whole lot of natural light (dark when i leave for work, dark when i get home, no windows at work etc)
what do you take? how/when do you take your supplements?
I also take .137 synthroid in the am because of a TT for Graves Disease
(all my supplements are spaced out 4 hours or more from the synthroid)
