Hi everyone, is there any multivitamin tablets brands to recommend?
Usage: Daily supplements to complement frequent dining in food courts.
Hello, Please check out AAA's most excellent database below

And check out examine.com to find out more info on the efficacy of the supplements you wish to take.

IMO, I do not think you need to take any vitamins to supplement your daily diet, unless you're a vegetarian or abstain from certain food groups.

Most likely a Omega 3 supplement (e.g. jarrow's), fibre supplement, vit d3 (even though Singapore is very sunny, most still do not get enough sun exposure), magnesium and maybe calcium.
Best to enter a sample diet into cronometer and see what you're lacking before deciding to supplement

Hope this helps!

This topic has been discussed so many times.

Do you really need multivits just because you feel under the weather?
Maybe you need Vit D3, if you are not the active sort in the sun.
Taking a multivit does not necessarily improve your immunity.
It might even put you at risk if you have compromised health.
eg megadose of Vit A in a multivit has shown to be less beneficial than the risks it might pose.

Why do you need calcium?
Because you dont drink milk?
Our normal asian diet should give us enough calcium.
If you are concerned abt healthy bones & teeth, then you should consider taking magnesium, a key often overlooked supplement, instead.


Look at the reasons why I dont recommend any multivits under "Multis I avoid" tab in this excel file: GET319.xls. Check out the price value comparison of Magnesium supplements
You can use this to compare against other favorite brands.

Not "maybe Omega 3."
See what Gala & Asure said below!

Thanks for all the info - very interesting to read about CVS. Maybe I stop taking.... but is it better to take cheap vitamins or don’t take at all?

This was from my earlier post on Magnesium:

Magnesium is a pretty good supplement for your needs, as well as a key nutrient for our bodily functions. Unfortunately its pretty much overlooked despite the fact that our diet dont give us sufficient Mg for our daily needs.

For a brief summary Read: https://examine.com/supplements/magnesium/

Mg is not quite easily bioavailable. The most common Mg is Magnesium Oxide which usually pass through our body as expensive urine.

The 2 main Mg you could consider is Mg Glycinate & Mg Citrate.
I buy Now brand & it has served me pretty well.
I had my mum did her Mg blood test which was just cross the lower band and after 2 mths this helped her raised the Mg serum to the top of the upper band in her Mg blood test 3 mths later.

Check out the price value comparison in the Magnesium tab in this excel file: GET319.xls


Happy shopping!

hurrah!

Frankly most of us, I believe, dont mind personal codes from active members who contribute positively in sharing knowledge, experiences, reviews, information, opinions etc.

Its the repetitive cut & paste posts that only blast their personal codes and clogs up this space that annoys us!!

Hi all,I got a couple of products that I bought recently and realised I can't consume them because they are not vegetarian.I have 1 MyProtein Protein Wafer, 1 Synder's Of Hanover Pretzel Pieces Cheddar Cheese Flavour , 3 Pure Protein Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Bars, 3 Chocolate Salted Caramel Protein Bars and 3 Chocolate Deluxe Protein Bars. Any kind souls to buy them from me? Or trade anything for them? Please message me if you are interested, I not sure how much should sell for so please quote our own price.
