Hi all. I would like to further my knowledge on vitamins/minerals and get some advice on what i should be taking.
The main reason im after taking the supplements is to help against aches and pains, and feel better overall, health wise.
I normally take all the supplements first thing in the morning.
Ive been taking 1100mg of cod liver oil daily. However i have some questions;
- Can i take it with glucosamine? Guessing no.
- What’s the max safe limit i can take, guessing around 1000-1100mg?
The reason i ask if i can take with glucosamine is that Ive been looking into buying some glucosamine and chrondoitin as i have a meniscus tear in my right knee and thought it might be worth considering.
Im out of cod liver oil, so will buy more soon, but wondered about G+C.
So, Ive recently been taking;
Cod liver oil 1.1g
Magnesium - 300mg
Zinc - 15mg
I was taking a multivitamin, but im not sure how much it’s needed, more questions;
Do you get enough Vit A from cod liver oil, as supposedly it gives RDA of VIT A and D, however im going to buy 5000 U.I Vitamin D soft gels later as im likely deficient in that.
What other vitamins/Minerals should i look into, to help against aches and pains. My iron was low before during blood tests in the past, however i have finished up 200, 210mg tablets and they’re now apparently within normal range.
Overdoses to be cautious of? I ask this mostly as ive only briefly read about Vitamin A intoxication, i would imagine even if i took a multi with cod liver oil, i would be fine from avoiding high levels of Vitamin A, but basicly anything i should watch out for when taking supplements and eating foods, i understand that Vit D is an ideal supplement to get after reading, which is why im going to buy some soon.
