Should I take all of my vitamins every day

If you can rule out that you are taking in sufficient quantities of a vital substance with your food (e.g. B12, omega-3 fatty acids or vitamin D3), then of course you should take the preparation permanently in the same dose.

In the case of a probiotic or a mineral earth, the procedure is usually cure, whereby a cure can last 7, 10 or 14 days, 3, 4, 5 or 6 weeks. Many people feel so good about probiotics (or other supplements) that they take them permanently. However, we recommend that you always take a break from taking your tablets. On the one hand to prevent the body from getting too used to the remedy, which could reduce its effect, and on the other hand to see whether you might be able to get by without the remedy in the meantime.

Because many dietary supplements (including probiotics, among others) are supposed to stimulate the body's self-regulation so that the organism can keep itself in a healthy balance again. Long-term use is therefore rarely provided. The same applies to antioxidants such as astaxanthin, curcumin, OPC etc. or mood-enhancing agents such as 5-HTP, tryptophan, rhodiola rosea etc.

Often you take these remedies punctually every day for a few weeks and suddenly you forget them, a sign that you are better, the original symptoms have subsided and you no longer need the preparations so regularly.

The mineral earths (bentonite, zeolite etc.), mumijo ("black gold") and many other dietary supplements are means that also have an important place in the medicine cabinet and can therefore be used as required, e.g. B. if you just have heartburn or diarrhea or have eaten the wrong thing.

Taking Food Supplements Correctly - A Practical Example

You now know many details about the correct intake of dietary supplements. Here is a practical example. For example, suppose you wanted to take the following supplements:

  1. Psyllium husk powder and zeolite
  2. Probiotics
  3. magnesium
  4. Curcumin
  5. Vitamin C in the form of acerola powder
  6. Chlorella
  7. Omega-3 fatty acids

How do you proceed now?

First, take a look at the manufacturer's recommendation on your preparations and write them down in a table. At the same time, you decide how often you want to take the respective remedy, since you can usually choose according to your needs. Also write down the dose you need or that you have decided on (or that your doctor / alternative practitioner has prescribed for you) in your table. Usually you start with a single intake (also to test the tolerance) and then increase if necessary or if the agent has been well tolerated and a higher dose is required.

The corresponding table for printing can be found here under this link.

You can see how easy it is to take because you can take almost any of the listed food supplements with your meals. Now create a table in which you write down your daily routine in relation to your meals.

Your individual intake protocol for dietary supplements

Then enter your dietary supplements in the table. The corresponding table for printing can be found here under this link.

Of course, every person has a different situation, so that everyone will ultimately have a very individual and personally suitable table. Who z. For example, if you practice intermittent fasting with only two meals a day, you will split your dietary supplements into two meals.

If you have to take medication on an empty stomach in the morning, take the shake e.g. B. half an hour before dinner or two hours after.

We have pointed out above that, with regard to the correct intake, it also depends on the form in which z. B. minerals are present. When it comes to calcium, you will find the right information here: Take calcium correctly, you will find it here for magnesium: Take magnesium correctly
