My Vitamin Regimen for General Wellness

My dad has been getting on me for years about taking my vitamins. Since I’m still in recovery from a recent injury, I figured this may be a good time to start. This will be my vitamin regimen for general wellness, but I’m hoping a side benefit is that this helps move my healing along.

My Vitamin Regimen for General Wellness

My friend recently told me that they’re saying in California that vitamins cause cancer. I find the conflicting information out there really confusing. Many sources say they’re good. Many say they’re bad. It’s hard to know who to trust, but I think I’ll take my chances.

Where to Buy Vitamins

Since I prefer whole-food based vitamins that are as natural as possible, I decided to get them all at Whole Foods. They have a pretty big selection, and the staff was really helpful in making suggestions on which multi-vitamin to take. While only the multi-vitamin is whole-foods-based, I appreciate the level of quality of the products offered at Whole Foods.
