Supplements

I take med lists from patients daily, and I have been noticing a few trending supplements. Just curious what you all are taking and why. I've noticed a lot of cinnamon and mega red lately.

The only supplement I take is B12, because I am vegan.

Lots of stuff on the Internet lately about cinnamon and it's anti-inflammatory properties. That would be my guess. But I have no idea on the Mega Red.

None - I get my vitamins and minerals from food. I eat little processed food and most of what I eat is organic (studies show organic has more vitamins and minerals).

I believe that Mega Red is krill oil.... similar to fish oil, high in Omega 3's.... so perhaps there is just a trend in that particular brand? .............P

I take a multi-vitamin, D3, omega and a probiotic. I have issues with my immune system and studies have shown that D3, omega and probiotics help boost it. I take the multi-vitamin because I couldn't eat enough food to get all the vitamins and minerals needed.

Cinnamon has been shown in studies to help control blood sugar in pre-diabetics.

Yes, it's a well-rated brand. I took it for awhile but I found it left a "taste" with me that I couldn't get used to. Krill oil is supposed to be the best way to get the Omegas.

Hubby takes cinnamon to help lower his blood sugar for his type 2 diabetes and I believe the mega red is for cholesterol but could be wrong. I take several different supplements for my chronic lyme and also have a methylation mutated gene so I have to take a different form of b-12 and folic acid. Pain in the butt but without these things I would be bed ridden.

LOL that is the first I have heard about the cinnamon as weight loss. Funny people think there is a magic pill for that
