Vitamins, are they for real?
February 6, 2013 in Uncategorized
Everyday, I will religiously take my vitamins. There is the omega 3, 6 and 9; a women’s multi-vitamin; calcium and a vitamin C tablet thrown in for good measure. At my “favourite” time of the month, I also add in some iron for good measure. With all these pills with a pretty decent diet and some exercise thrown in every now and again, you would expect that I would be in pretty good shape. Unfortunately that’s not the case.
The vitamin C doesn’t seem to provide my immune system with a boost as I still mange to get a summer cold even though no one around me is sick. The omega doesn’t seem to help with my brain either, my memory and concentration are just as bad as they were before I started taking the stuff. The vitamin E in the multi-vitamin doesn’t seem to be helping my eyes and the B12 doesn’t seem to be doing much either. I could go on with this list forever but I think that I’ve made my point.
I spend almost R250 on this stuff every month and yet it doesn’t really seem to be doing anything. It makes me wonder if taking the stuff is actually supposed to help or is it all just a marketing ploy…
