On popping pills.
Towards the end of last year I added Probiflora intense 9 strain to my hand full each day. It has been revolutionary in relieving my IBS symptoms So much so that it is the one I would not miss on any account although it does cost a small fortune.
But here's the thing - it's winter time. I am really going all out to avoid getting a cold or flu. Last year's swine flu was, well for the pigs. It was terrible. So, Hunter and I have joined the kids in drinking a cold and flu fighting supplement. So now I have 4 pills to swallow each day in the supplement department. I also have the not so small pill to swallow in the evenings by the way of a calcium and magnesium supplement recommended by Dr. Barbie my gynea, as it seems the start of menopause could once again be heading my way a bit earlier than the usual timing.
So my question to you is - how many supplements are too many? Which ones do I stop? And do you stop taking your multi vitamin when you drink the cold and flu supplement in winter? And what about the B vitamins which you then miss out on? I am really stressed at the minute with work and am worried that without my B vitamines I will get sick.
So what's your opinion on supplements and what is in you handful every day?
