    Vitamins A-Z and minerals


    I was just wondering whether vitamins A-Z will benefit as i saw something in the chemist today it had all the vitamins but not that much of each but also contains, iron, magnesium and afew other minerals, could you take this with a vitamin b complex as well? or would that be too many vitamins to take? as i said in an earlier post i would ideally like to take a good vitamin b complex once a day as well as 3 capsules of pure EPA and maybe this lot of vitamins and minerals as well.

    If anyone wants to know a place where you can get pure EPA capsules that are better as they contain no DHA then goto.

    Take care people.

    Hi Andrew,

    Providing you are eating reasonably well and a balanced then its probably unnecessary unless you are totally wiped out and completely exhausted 24/7 in which case a liquid total vitamin // mineral supplement such as

    would do the trick - just for 1-2 months until you replenish your own internal stocks.

    Thanks for the link

    Thanks for your reply meg i was looking at something on www.questvitmains.co.uk and looked at a super once a day timed release that is supposed to be good for energy levels as mine are very low at the moment, maybe i could try them and a vitamin B complex, EPA fish oil as well as my antidepressant Cipralex mind you i dont want to overdose myself lol, so i have to be careful what i take but i would like to try taking all 4 of them every day from next week.

    Thanks again.

    They certainly won't harm you and Quest are a good brand - check if they do they do a liquid version as that gets absorbed much better especially when you're under stress and everything in the guts gets pushed along a bit quicker due to the adrenalin and cortisol.

    Also check how much B it has in it - so you're not overdoing that one.

    How are you doing in yourself ?

    Im just tired alot of the time and cant stay awake as long as i used to be able to and i dont feel with it like spaced out.

    The one a day timed release has about 25-35mg of all vitamin B's in it and the vitamin b complex on there that i might take as well has around 50mg of all the B vitamin's so i would be taking around 75mg a day of all B vitamins.

    Ive been back to the doc's very recently and they have upped my cipralex from 10mg to the max dose of 20mg, but i had a terrible xmas and had loads of rows with my dad as we dont really get on and when i came back home i felt 20 times worse and cant seem to shake it off.

    :(

    This is ok for Vit B and a good all over supplement.

    Don't take any more B as well as another 50 would be too much.

    The spaced out bit is likely to be anxiety/ medication and / or sugar control.

    I had a look back for your introductory post but can't find one. I don't know enough about your history and run up to where you are now to comment further as to symptoms and how you're doing.

    Sorry you didn't have a great Christmas and are suffering the after effects of it still.

    Hope the supplement helps you.

    Hi Kiki, at the moment i'm reading called "Healing Without Freud or Prozac" it is a very good book, and one of the main things recommended is EPA fish oil. I went to Holland and Barrett and unfortunately they didnt have as high strength as I would have liked but I decided to give them a try. I've only been taking them two days (three times a day) but I haven't had any symptoms at all!!!

    The one in the link above is good when you're really anxious and having trouble eating as it's a liquid which makes it easier for your body to absorb.
    There are several on the market, any will do

    If you're better overall then a tablet one will be fine.
