I went to my doctor recently and he used some metaphor to explain that I need to supplement my diet. He told me that my body is like a construction company and it’s used to building a few houses here and there, but I’m telling it to build a whole city. I’m giving it enough raw materials (carbs/protein/fats), but…
Well I forgot the rest.
But the point was that my liver is filtering a ton of shit and needs more vitamins to keep up. And he said that I need a lot more vitamin E for my skin to keep up with growth (I’m covered in stretch marks). He also said my joints were pretty inflamed. I don’t have tendinitis or anything, but I get occasional elbow pain and such.
He tried to sell me a bunch of Standard Process inc. supplements, but I’d like to hear from you guys first.
Is there a good multivitamin that I should be taking? I get a lot of calories, but it’s mostly the same food. I’d like to supplement with a multivitamin.
I do take fish oil. I stopped for a while out of laziness, but it makes my joints feel better.
My diet is mostly milk, meats, some grains (buckwheat/rice), but not much, and fruits and some vegetables.
I’m 16, 230lbs, 5’11’’.
I’m looking for a good multivitamin. Help please
