Many studies show the benefits of taking vitamins supplements. However many others studies advocate that vitamins supplements are not necessary. Extra points for thoughts on fish-oil supplements.

Only necessary if you have a shitty diet.

What's a non-shitty diet?

>fish oil supplements

not vegan, don't take them. if you want fatty acids eat nuts avocados or vegetable oils in moderation.

they are from farm fish, thoroughly inundated with contaminants. spend the money you would spend on fish oil on something mentioned above and you'll be better off.

if you eat a whole foods vegan diet the only thing you'll have to supplement is b12

Still ongoing, but something to keep an eye out for when it's finally published.

I take vitamin C supplements. Since doing so I've found I don't get colds as often nor do they last as long. Might be a placebo, but placebos are valid for the layman.

LOL give an example. The entire vitamin supplement industry is built on nothing but superstition.
>>
>>7788887
Not placebo, your memory is biased.
>>
>>7788911
Perhaps, but this bias is fairly in-line with the literature.
>>
>>7788916
Also, the rate of colds is greatly effected by changes in occupation/education. The more time you spend in public places, the more colds you will get.
>>
>>7788920

Also helps if you take it easy when you first get symptoms instead of being in denial about being sick and ignoring it.

I don't trust too many pills, pop the odd multivit once in a while if I feel my diet is shit, vit C once in awhile.
I hear tell some vitamins need to be activated with certain foods. I think fish oils are probably for real explaining the Eskimos darker skin pigment and sometimes pure fish diet. Sunlight helps, basement dwelling neckbeards are you listening? Then again, who wants to live forever?

Vitamins are not real, show me an actual picture of a vitamin
