    I try not to but at times I take royal jelly when I am really tired. I have small red cells so I also try to eat food that is rich in iron and vitamin C.

    I take One-A-Day with Immune Support (more Vitamin C). Before I started taking them I was plagued with really bad sinus infections frequently (and not just during the typical seasons, I could get them in the middle of summer). They were getting unbearable. I'm not sure what got me started taking them, but it didn't take me long to realize that they were helping.

    I can't eat many things, so I suppose it's good to take them because of that, too.

    I was also directed to take fiber because of some...issues. However, I don't think taking it has ever helped those issues. I haven't been taking it in the last few months, but I did for a couple of years, so that's pretty conclusive for me. I just need to go to a doctor for that stuff, but it's embarrassing and I also am already going to the doctor for other issues. Ugh.

    I’m deficient in both iron and vitamin D, so I have to take supplements for both. Sometimes I forget, but that’s just because I have a bad habit of taking meds at a scheduled time. It was extremely hard on my pregnancy though, and it was pretty rough to work while being extremely nauseous, light headed, and fatigued throughout all three trimesters.

    I'm prescribed with some sort of all in one vitamin because I don't really eat much.

    I also have Vitamin B and melatonin in case I have trouble sleeping. Knock on wood, I haven't had that issue in a long while.

    I take 2 one-a-days because I figure it's twice as healthy.

    I don't do 3, because they're kind pricey here, and I'm not Bill Gates.

    I’ve been taking a multivitamin supplement on a daily basis for like three months now. I’ve started taking iron supplements as well recently, since I’m so damn tired all the time these days. :blobrip

    I have actually noticed a difference when it comes to my health. I used to have horrendous menstrual cramps before I started taking a multivitamin supplement daily. The reason why painful cramps occur, is because the uterus produces high amounts of prostaglandins which causes the uterine muscles to contract in order to help the uterus shed the lining. Apparently, Vitamin D reduces the production of prostaglandins, which would explain why my period cramps aren’t as severe as they used to be. Just an advice for females who have the same problem. :blobderp

    multivitamin for a year along with fish oil 3 times a day
    What it has ended up doing is get rid of morning tiredness mostly because of the B vitamin content

    I can never get into the habit of taking a multivitamin daily, though I find it much easier when it's in gummy form. I probably should start taking them again..

    Now, I only take Whey Protein in order to keep my protein intake up.
    Before, I also use to take multivitamins and Fish Oil. I eat more veggies now, so I don't take multi anymore. And I just kinda stopped taking fish oil

    People taking them should try out a non shit diet instead of something non-natural.

    I take a multi-vitamin. Everyone should, our modern diet simply isn't rounded enough to achieve peak nutrition without a vitamin or strict diet. Beyond that I take a couple mood health supplements, Valerian root for sleep quality. That's about it although I usually place a dab of activated THC concentrate on my vitamin when I take it. Helps your mood health and hopefully wards off cancer.

    Multi-vitamin, D, B12 and DHA fish oil capsules. The DHA in particular does wonders for my nails and hair.
