What Vitamins I Currently Take
I always take some sort of Vitamins, but for years I've been taking multivitamins pretty consistently but experimenting with other vitamins such as nail, skin and hair vitamins. These are the ones I take right now. Some people say vitamins aren't necessary if you eat right but I really believe the counter argument to that which is that all the food we eat these days (healthy or not) has been processed so much that it's most likely Not as beneficial as it would have been back in the days.
Why do I take these vitamins?
*Don't quote me on any of the following info, as this is just what I "know" at the top of my head.
Zinc: My most recent addition. Other than the fact that Zinc and Vitamin C go well together, I recently read that Zinc can help improving your skin. After discovering a few very unwelcome stretch marks on my legs :(, I wen't and bought Zinc straight away. The last reason is that Zinc is said to "neutralise" the side effects of Biotin, such as breakouts.
Biotin: We all probably know by now that Biotin is said to aid hair and nail growth. I am not sure if it does but I am sure that it is definitely helping in some way. Side effects for some are breakouts and head aches. I haven't experiences either.
Vitamin C: To support my immune system as the label says lol. Since moving to London I've had soo many colds. Pretty inevitable when you travel using public transport, but I will try my best to fight of colds!
Multivitamins: Brand being Tesco (UK Supermarket) I am not sure how much they know about Vitamins, and what research has been put in. As far as I know, with multivitamins they usually don't contain 100% of every vitamin and mineral. I am guessing this is to take into consideration how well they work with each other etc. Anyway, this one does contain 100% of everything, but they are cheap so why not.
