I bought this pill box at Rite Aid for my nightly vitamins. Sometimes I’m far too disorganized to get them all out of the jars when all I really want to do is get to bed, so I thought of parceling them out once a week. Even a lazybones like me can manage that!
Here’s what I take:
Gloucosamine – Tony Horton said everyone doing P90X or over 40 should take this. Okay then! Gloucosamine is good for joints and helps keep arthritis at bay. The pills are pretty big but easy to swallow. I buy them at CostCo.
Calcium – I don’t drink milk so I worry that I don’t get enough calcium (never mind how much cheese I eat). I do not like these pills – they’re huge and hard to swallow. When I’m done with this jar I’m switching to those chocolatey chew things.
Allergy pill – I stopped taking this for a while because Shakeology seems to have controlled my allergies (superfoods baby!), but this dry weather makes my eyes puffy and deep breaths difficult, so it goes back into the nightly routine.
Multivitamin – I don’t know if I really need it a multivitamin since I drink Shakeology and I eat 5-7 servings of fruits and veggies everyday. However, I once read that you’d have to eat THREE apples today to get the same nutrition you got from ONE apple 40 years ago. I do love apples, but three is a bit excessive so multivitamin it is.
Do you take vitamins and supplements or do you think they’re hooey?
