I don't know the exact brand, but my dad bought me two things.

1) A Vitamin B supplement (it has B6, B12, Biotin, etc)
2) Vitamin C tablets

I take the Vitamin B supplement for my hair, as I really want to grow it out long, and to keep my skin nice and clear. The C just helps with fighting off sickness I think

Has anyone tried SPIRULINA? It's so popular in Asia. I've started taking some, I don't know if it's any good though

Everyday: Multivitamin with iron, 10,000 mcg of biotin, 1 super b complex, 2,000 mg of vitamin c, and 4 ginseng capsules. I love my vitamins I really can tell a difference when I don't take them.

I take a lot of vitamins and minerals daily.... too many to go into.
I'm going to get some powdered wheatgrass today. Anyone else tried it? Thoughts?

^I haven't tried it personally, but I've heard it's disgusting.

I only take a One-A-Day multivitamin everyday. It has every important vitamin in it.
The only downside is that it's the size of a horse pill.

What is it supposed to help with? I live in Asia but never heard of it. Intrigued!

Does anyone take chlorophyll supplements or drops? And yes, I did see it mentioned on Into The Gloss, even though I also researched it on my own after I saw it on there.

multi-vitamin (I have to take 2 one a day ones in the US as they are half as concentrated as ones in Australia) and vitamin D since I was tested to be deficient

Back to an old comment, I take spirliina when I am feeling run down - it is supposed to be good for you skin, energy levels and is high in protein and omega 3 It is really popular in New Zealand (apparently) and Australia. I have seen it in cafes in Australia!

I saw spirulina at the chemist the other day and I couldn't recall why I had the urge to pick it up and now coming into this thread I remember.

I didn't buy it as I had no idea what it did but maybe I'll check it out. Anything that can help me with my energy levels and with the added benefit of healthy skin sounds good to me .

I'm currently taking B12, vitamin C and iron. I think they all have their place in my diet. And I notice changes when I eliminate them. But I had to stop taking multivitamins because they were causing me to breakout in rashes. After a few brand changes I finally came to the conclusion that I must be allergic to one of the preservatives in them or that really there is no need for them personally.

MSM (sulfur) helps with other supplement absorption, hair (amazing growth), skin, and nails
NAC (N-Acetylcysteine) raises gluthione levels, which is a powerful antioxidant
VitC, another powerful antioxidant
Magnesium to stall amphetamine tolerance from ADHD meds
Fish oil for concentration and Omega 3 & 6
Coenzyme Q10 for skin, weight maintenance, and energy
Melatonin for sleep and vivid dreams
Sometimes, Super VitB for energy and minimal meat in my diet
And last but not least, One-A-Days multi
... And with that, I'm a vitamin junkie.
