What I take:
1. A multivitamin: I take one specifically for women. And I do mix it up, sometimes taking one for active women, metabolism support, or weight control.
*Brands don't matter....store brands have the same ingredients and are typically cheaper.
*NEVER take vitamins on an empty stomach! Yikes!! I always take mine in the morning after a big breakfast, but I have read that it's better to take them at night before bed.
*Drink LOTS of water. Hydration is SO important for your health anyway, but especially when taking lots of vitamins. (Did you know that the best way to tell if you're drinking enough water is the color of your urine? We're aiming for clear, ladies!) Water helps ensure the vitamins are getting to the right place in your body.
*Your body will get rid of any extra vitamins you don't need (which is why your pee may be really bright or neon when you first start taking them- remember, drink more water!). I never take two of something, even if the directions recommend it.
Hope this helps!!
