It you're 20-29 you might not be deficient....link to original post



Thank you for the information and advice. It was so good that I can't think of anything to add or ask.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Two years ago, my then Doctor said I was Vitamin D deficient and prescribed this horse pill I was supposed to take once a week.
The pharmacy had to special order it and in the meantime, I started taking an OTC Vitamin D3 pill that gave me 5,000 IUs daily. It cost less than $10 for a year's supply. The prescription drug was $52 a month, of which I would have paid either $5 or $10. I canceled that order. My new labs showed I was no longer deficient but I continue to take the OTC supplements. Being a night creature, I don't get the sun that I once did.

Good gravy!

Can you post a picture of what I take daily for me? Just remove everything from that piece of furniture and take a picture of it.

    Why is it MDawg always gets challenged?

    Why is it he has to prove certain things?

    Like the majority of other posts by countless members, if you don't agree or side with them, you generally just move on, not challenge them with the same intense redundancy you do with MDawg? (At least that is what I have seen and observed here)

    Thank you,

    Rest assured, I strongly believe that no one on the board would be excluded from being challenged for making claims that repeatedly defy sound mathematical principles. Whereby claims of winning daily sessions at very high percentage rates going on for an extended length of time. The bottom line here is the more defying nature of the claim the more the claim will be challenged without any prejudice involved.

    To answer the Wizard, if you have a reasonably full and balanced diet, you do not ‘need’ supplemental vitamins. My diet is so variable, in that I may go a long time not eating ‘right’, that I now take a daily multivitamin ‘just in case’. Risk…. close to zero. Benefit…. probably close to zero but not as close….

    You would have to have a medical condition, be a Vegan or somthing wacky like that to not get enough vitamins.

    But hey, feel free to load up on Vitamin C, I hear it's great for the common cold, and you wouldn't want to get scurvy.

    That's what the schools teach, but it ignores the facts that deficiencies are *common*, and that many supplements have been shown to have beneficial effects in preventing and treating disease.

    Even if the science isn't completely reproduceable, enough people feel enough better when taking a multivitamin to justify the 21 cents* a day in spend, even if it might be for a placebo.

    The schools may be right too, with the ubiquity of enriched rice and flour fighting basic vitamin deficiencies. Maybe you don't get so malnourished you die, but maybe you'd feel better with more riboflavin, too.


    *Probably a little more if you have a dozen bottles from a vitamin boutique.
    May the cards fall in your favor.

    I used to take melatonin on a regular basis, and just about everything I've read about says most people don't produce enough of it.

    [Unless you are deficient in something(as was pointed out, a common one is vitiman D) you dont need to be taking a bunch of vitamans. You can eat fairly crappy here in the USA and get evrything you need]



    How has this nutritional philosophy been working out for you?

    Haven't you had redacted by admin

    My understanding is that you are also redacted by admin


    Are you dismissing an enriched diet, including nutritional supplements, as a scam?

    Anecdotally, I attribute the size and health of my family members to an enriched diet.

    Eating unhealthy can cause all kinds of problems. What I said... You can eat fairly crappy here in the USA and get everything you need" Obvious, I was talking about vitamins if you followed the conversation.

    I never suggested anyone eat unhealthily or that I do.
    I eat normal food, 75% or more is home-cooked using "fresh" ingredients like... steak, shrimp(not fresh), chicken, mushrooms, onions, asparagus, tomatoes, fruits, homemade soup, and lots of avocados's, etc. I also eat frozen pizza, lasagna, or whatever the heck I feel like because that's what I feel like eating. I do get fast food when I am out and about being busy if I get hungry. Unfortunately, I consume sweets, too much soda/ juice, and I don't drink enough water. I don't eat anything just because it's healthy, and I don't avoid anything because it's unhealthy. I eat whatever I like, wherever I like.

    Any prior or current health issues are not related to my diet. I just had a full workup and labs done...everything was great. I take zero pills or supplements, at my age that's not bad, all things considered(I should be dead 3 times over). I had some major stomach surgeries years ago that does hinder my ability to gain weight, limit the amount of food I can eat at once, and cause occasional issues.
