If you suspect vitamin deficiencies see a doctor and get tested. Some vitamin overdoses are very dangerous.

Thank you!!!!!!!!

The easiest way to see the difference between the vitamins meant for men or women is to go to a drug store and read the levels of each ingredient while comparing it to the other. You will find there is little difference. The one that stands out most is the amount of calcium and folic acid in the ones for women.

Vitamins never helped with my fatigue - although they obviously did post surgery and for daily needs. The biggest contributors in my life experience to daily fatigue have been

a) low hormone levels

and

b) thyroid issues

c) being overweight at one point as a result of b).

Getting to the bottom of what is causing your fatigue is important. Being overweight is a very common one - as your blood vessels become "strangulated", either by high blood pressure or by plaque buildup - leading to a lack of oxygen being distributed to your brain and body which causes the tiredness.

Starla,

I do not recommend those body building vitamins because the ingredients listed too many herbals with minimal amounts. There is a possibility of a drug interaction with those herbals when you finally start taking some prescription hormones.

If your diet is not the best, a good quality daily multivitamin is all anyone needs, assuming your doctor has not prescribed a specific vitamin for a specific condition your may have.

The rest is marketing baloney.

Its a fact that there are many people in the western world poisoning themselves with too many vitamins - a fact I found in a scientific article where scientists were debating the best way to educate people on the dangers of taking too many 'supplements' and others and in the face of large pharmaceuticals pushing them for profit despite the dangers.  They also debated the fact that certain synthesized vitamins had no affect inside the body whatsoever.... ( minerals are obviously different and work as is )
