One of the ladies I work with was asking me if I take any vitamins and also asked what I used for my protein. So I thought I would share it with all of you.

I take 1000mg of Vitamin B12 as prescribed by my doctor as my B12 is low. My B12 has been normal since I started taking it.

Every morning I also take a mulit-vitamin that I get from GNC. It is called Women's Ultra Mega Active. I take one in the morning and one at lunch time. It has a lot of wonderful things in it.
It has Medicinal Ingredients like: Beta-Carotene, Vitamins A, D, E, K1 C, B1, B2, B6, B12, Niacinamide, Niacin, Folic Acid, Biotin, and Pantothenic Acid.
Minerals like: Calcium, Magnesium, Zinc, Iron, Iodine, Maganese, Copper, Potassium, Chromium, Selenium, Boron, Silica, Molybdenum, Vandium, Inositol, Choline, and Phosphorus.
Digestive Aids like: Betaine Hydrochloride, Bromelain, Papain, Capsicum
Green Foods like: Green Tea Extract, Ribose, L-Theanine, Rhodiola rosea, Passionflower Extract, Barley Grass, Nori Seaweed, Chamomille Leaft Extract, Pine Bark Extract, Vinpocetine, Resveratrol, and Acerola Cherry.

I find that I have lots of energy through out the day. The other thing that I find is that it makes your urine a really bright yellow. It kind of freaked me out the first time that I noticed it but then I saw Dr Oz one day and he said that the bright yellow urine is from excess B vitamins that your body is getting rid of and that made sense to me so I worried no more.

I also use another product that I get at Sunflower Natural Foods or GNC. It is called PhytoBerry The Whole Body Antioxidant. It is really tasty and has lots of good stuff in it.
Fruit Concentrates: Goji berry, organic acai berry, pomegranate, indian goose berry, mangosteen, prine, blueberry, raisin, vranverry, strawverry, acerola berry, apricot, raspberry, cupuacu, blackberry, sea berry, and elderberry.
Phytonutrients: rosehip extract, green tea extract, apple extract, white tea extract rosemary extract, grape skin extract, olive leaf extract, biliberry extract, grape seed extract, pine bark extract, corn silk, quercetin, lycopene, and resveratrol.
Essential Fatty Acids & Oils: organic non-GMO lecithin, organic flax seed oil, organic cocomut oil, plantain oil, extra cergin olice oil, avocado oil, essential orange oil, essential rosemary oil, essential clove oil, essential thyme oil, essential oregano oil, essential cinnamon bark oil, and black pepper extract.

I also use a protein powder called Lean Whey (from Sunflower Natural Foods). I like the French Vanilla Cream flavor. It has 25 g of protein in 2 scoops and I mix it with 1 cup of milk. I use the Lean Whey brand because it is sweetened with Stevia. A lot of the protein powders are sweetened with Sucralose and I get headaches from Sucralose and I really don't like the taste of it. I usually have my protein shake within 30 minutes of working out.

So that is what I take every day. They are not for everyone so check with your doctor before you take any type of vitamin.
