Will I overdose on vitamins?
I stopped taking my women's multivitamin when I started Ignite, since there are so many vitamins in Dailyburn Fuel. I do however still take my fish oil. My Dailyburn tracker keeps sending my notifications that I'm not getting certain vitamins in my diet. I stick to all Ignite recipes. I also noticed that the nutrition facts for the shakes do not show all the vitamins & minerals that are listed in the Fuel powder. Should I take the women's vitamin or will that be unhealthy for me to get too many vitamins and minerals? I noticed Dailyburn sells a supplement. Is that safe?SAB42 by:
I actually usually err on the side of taking fewer vitamins - if you're eating a healthy diet, you should be getting the vast majority of what you need from your food. I look up some of the requirements for the more "important" vitamins - in my case, I judge those to be calcium, iron, and a few others - and if it doesn't seem like my diet will provide them on a regular basis, I supplement on days I feel like I might need a boost for one or more of them. Thus I own a lot of very specific vitamins and fewer multivitamins. ;)
That said, some vitamins, like C, are water soluble and I never worry about getting too much of them as long as I'm staying hydrated. Hope this helps - it's all very specific to your diet and what you're comfortable with!
