Long before my married years, my gynecologist recommended taking a multivitamin and calcium tablets daily; the multivitamin would ensure that I was getting all the essential nutrients I might have missed in my diet, and the calcium would protect me as I got older, as most of calcium storage is built up in your twenties. Dutifully, I followed the regimen of taking my multivitamin and calcium before I went to bed -- I did it in my single years and into my early married years.
I still try to make sure I remember my multivitamin and calcium now, but some times I'm overcome with Mommy Brain and can barely remember what's next on the To Do List. My husband also likes to take herbal supplements, so I've added a few herbs to my supplements.
Overall, I do advocate a healthy diet and vitamin supplements just to ensure proper nutrients are in place! Here's to good health!
