What's your take on cultured vitamins? What do you think about the a recent research paper showing that food has significantly less nutrients than it did 100 years?

My diet and lifestyle mean that I take a multivitamin pill as a safety precaution I get the cheapest store's own brand costs maybe $10 per year. Yes I know that I should change the lifestyle and diet but in the winter I go to work in the dark , go home in the dark, I do not get out of the building or see daylight during the week so I might see daylight one day per week if that. From say November -March. For peace of mind alone it's worth it.

3000 iu of vitamin D
320mg of magnesium glycinate (30% oxide, 70% glycinate)
23mg of zinc bisglycinate
2mg copper glycinate
(Including 2 krill oil pills)
All this daily. Please tell me what's wrong with this.
Also if you're a female on birth control you should be taking a B vitamin daily. I disagree with the dismissive nature of this video towards vitamin supplementation.

I’m vegan and I have been prescribed iron and B12. It was a miracle that I was waking up and functioning each day without these essential macronutrients.
Andrew Ramirez
Andrew Ramirez - 10 days ago
Zvuk Zao yeah... apparently my body is bad with retaining iron. The iron in my blood was VERY low and I get nose bleeds when the iron is low so I have to take the iron.
Zvuk Zao
Zvuk Zao - 10 days ago
Dude unless you're struggling with retaining iron literally every veggie or bean you eat has it. the only supplement you really need is b12. Just saying. :/

I am broke and pretty much live on top ramen because it costs about twenty bucks a month, then my multivitamin costs ten bucks a month... thirty bucks a month is much cheaper than a week of a more healthy diet ;.;
Heidi A. Thomson Life Coach
I so agree!!!! FYI I did have chronic anemia (before I was vegan and due to excessive bleeding during menses - that never seemed to end). Once I became vegan, the chronic anemia stopped. This was due to the amount of greens I ate per day with added lemon juice for absorption.

The only vitamin supplement I take is B12.

What is your point of view on dieting pills? Like "the miracle cure" to loose weight. My mom keeps on pressuring me to loose weight, and have been mentally bullying me since I was a kid. A couple of days ago, she brought me some diet pills (which she bought in russia), which made me think of what you think of it.
The voice from your pillow
Would still rather take a b12 once a week than have 200+ ldl.

Do you really know about vitamins. Most doctors (yes, I know doctors are smart) don't umderstand how healthy vitamins are

Thank you for clearing the air on supplements and probiotics. Unfortunately I am one of those people who have been battling gut issues for almost 40 years. I definitely have IBS-D and have been tested for celiac 4xs now and it has always been inconclusive. Gluten intolerance was through the roof on last test and now following a mostly gluten free diet. I also have a lot of food allergies. Since I just recently ordered a multi I feel better knowing that I made the right decision. I already know I have a malabsorption problem. The poop transplant study sounds interesting (and gross too!). Very eager to hear more info on that. We have a family history of Crohns and Celiac. Thank you for putting your perspective on these topics. I think it’s super important for different doctors to weigh in. I have a friend that has a holistic practice and I always take it with a grain of salt. Never believed in many of the crazy supplements that are out there. Your videos came up on my recommended screen. Just recently started to watch them. Thank you!

Night shift worker here. A few coworkers have told me that I should be taking Vitamin D due to a decreased amount of sun exposure. That actually kinda makes sense. 🤷🏾‍♀️
Anyone know if this is true?
Doina Marina
Doina Marina - Day ago
Night shift worker also. I’ve done a vitamin b and d blood test, and yes it turned out that I’m vitamin d deficient. So I’m taking vitamin d supplement. So is best if you take a blood test :)
saammmy7 - 22 days ago
it's definitely possible. you could ask your doctor to run a blood test to check if you're actually deficient.

1:39 Dude.. that suit is wayyy too tight. Was that the suit you wore at your high school graduation? Be careful when you sit down or you're gonna rip the seam up your butt.
I get it tho. If I was fit, I would wanna show it off too, but its definitely distracting, in a funny way.

I completely agree with you Dr. Mike. When I took the class Anatomy and Physiology 1 & 2 I learned that having too much of a vitamin in your system could actually be even more harmful and lead to greater health problems. As always blessing Dr. Mike.

Is supplemensts recommend to college students especially medical MBBS students who isn't getting proper nutrition through food because only food available in the mess are carbohydrate rich food With less or no protein and greens.
Ashley ASHLEYM - Month ago
I take prenatals with folic acid, iron and DHA (because of pregnancy) and magnesium because I have a history of critically low potassium and magnesium helps to absorb potassium and potassium supplements are potential lethal because potassium overdoses are lethal. I also make sure to get adequate sleep to help retain the potassium instead of wasting it in my urine (kidneys throw out potassium due to lack of sleep). I used to take a prescription potassium supplement but doc determined I no longer needed such a high dose.

What supplements do you recommend for vegans (besides B12)?
Ashley ASHLEYM - Month ago
Well honestly you probably aren't getting enough of a lot of vitamins and minerals in particular things like Omega 3s and iron. And a vegan diet means you need a bit more than the typical RDI of most vitamins and minerals. And you also need more protein than the average person as well. Eating tons of non animal products makes it harder for your body to absorb nutrients so be ware. And of course B12 is a mush supplement on a vegan diet. Also some vegan sources of certain vitamin and minerals aren't bioavailable forms of them so that's another thing to keep in mind.

Would love to hear your thoughts on pcos. I know I take supplements rather than taking pharmaceuticals for hormone balancing. I also changed the way I eat. Love your videos and would love to hear you touch on the subject.

Let's say hypothetically, I need vitamins but can't eat fruits and certain veggies because I'm on a keto diet... should I take supplements then?

I take vitamin D in the winter because I live in a snowy state with little sunshine and it was recommended to me by a doctor, you should also look into the correlation between vitamin D deficiencies and breast cancer. I don’t drink milk and I also have depression so it’s a decent idea to supplement. I also take hyaluronic acid, collagen, glucosamine hydrochloride, and chondroitin because I have a joint disorder (hyper mobility) and it honestly helps with the overall pain better than stretches which is all I’ve ever really been told to do for it. Supplements are okay if you have a legitimate condition but if you’re overall pretty healthy, they’re probably useless to you. Always make sure you check the labels to avoid bad ingredients and buy from a reputable brand, aka probably nothing at Walmart. I do this for a living, and I can def tell you some of it really works but some of it is total bullshit lol.

I have been taking Biotin Supplement Rs500/month and AntiHair lost shampoo Rs1500 for a 200 ml bottle for hair because my greedy dermatologist doctor gets a cut every time I buy that supplement here in India.. Even though he never tested me for Biotin defeciency.... and I later found that most docs say Biotin deficiency is very rare... Many Doctors in India are so unethical and money minded stingy set of people here, will make patients spend unnecessarily to get their cut...

Because statistics: I'm gonna assume that the majority of the 24% who has a deficiency belongs to the 14% who does not take any supplements while the remaining 10% just doesn't take enough supplements 🥴🤓🥴 (JK... don't eat anything in pill-form that your doctor hasn't prescribed..)
