What does your doctor think of the supplements you are taking?

Hi I take several supplements and the way I have entered them is to create a custom food - I called supplements - and enter all the vitamins and minerals in it. I do them all together. You could do a custom food for each supplement if you prefer. It's a bit of work but you only have to create it once then you can add it each day.

It is a good practice to get supplements but is it safe to take them without consulting with a specialist or without getting a blood test?

B vitamins are readily depleted in the body when you are under extra stress, when you are sick or fighting illness, during periods of intense exercise or when you are exposed to pollutants, such as cigarette smoke or smog. During such times, your body systems require extra energy for optimal function and to keep you healthy. B-complex provides the support for energy production by all cells.

I think it's best to be sure you need the vitamins before taking them. If they are fat soluable you could get a toxic reaction from them. If they are water soluable the excess will come out in your urine and you will be wasting your money.
