Omega Three.

Would love to know what everyone else is doing... Thanks! Sara..

Vitamins make me sick so I chew 2 flintstones vitamins, My vitaming D is low so I take 2k of that daily also..

Comment #1

Don't take the multi. Medifast gives you 100% of the RDA of a lot of vitamins. If you take a multi on top of it you can damage your liver and kidneys with overdoses of the fat-soluble vitamins (the water-soluble ones you just pee out the extra of)..

The omega-3s and biotin are great. I don't know about the Alpha Lipoic..

I take fish oil, vit D, biotin, probiotics, and psyllium...

Comment #2

The Alpha Lipoic helps with inflamation in your body as well as rebuilding some nerves.... it is a super anti oxidant... my dr recommended it for me.... and it is helping ... =)..

Comment #3

I take D3 (5K), prescription fish oil for cholesterol, biotin, a probiotic, and Vitron-C (iron+C). The D and iron only because I'm deficient and on drs. orders...

Comment #4

Vit D, probiotic and omega 3 for me. Need to get some biotin...

Comment #5

How much biotin do you take. I found 2500 mcg capsules...

Comment #6

5000 mcg was what was recommended to me. That's how much I take - 2 capsules...

Comment #7

Freya's right about the multi-vitamin..

On doctors orders, I also take iron, and D, because both were so low..

I also take biotin and octovite, (it's an eye vitamin, macular degeneration runs in my family)..

Comment #8

Like Freya, I take the 5000 MCG. It's called Super Biotin. You can find it at any walmart...
