Here is a great article or actually videos from Dr. Oz. I am a huge fan and thought what better way then to link you to his videos on why we need these vitamins and how much to take.
If you’ve ever stood paralyzed in the vitamin aisle, facing the alphabet soup of supplements, fear no more. This is Dr. Oz’s list of critical vitamins that every woman should be taking. And if you know your ABC’s, this list should be easy to remember!
Helpful Hint: When purchasing your vitamins, check for bottles labeled 100% daily allowance on label.
Multivitamins fulfill your nutritional needs for the day. Take half in the morning and half at night. Multivitamins contain:
Vitamin A – critical for healthy vision and skin
Vitamin B – a metabolism booster
Vitamin C – keeps your immune system strong, especially important during cold and flu season.
Vitamin D – promotes healthy bones (and your immune system)
Vitamin E – for healthy development of muscles and brain function
Additional Vitamin D:
Dr. Oz recommends taking additional vitamin D. To learn more about the benefits of this supplement click here.
