Not just for kids

(My DR told me this yesterday so i'm passing it on to you!)

So we all should know that it is good for your body to take some sort of vitamin everyday-but with so many out there, how do we choose?!?

This answer is: Flintstones Vitamins.

So they aren't just for kids.

Sarah (my doctor) told me that your body retains more of Flintstones (specifically the chewable, there isn't tests out for the gummies yet) Vitamins than any other. Your body is only "wasting" (as in pooping-sorry for being gross) out about 12% of this--whereas others on the market (like Centrum, etc.) waste at least 50% (--Sometimes up to 67%!)

I don't know about you, but I wish someone had told me that sooner! And I think it's a bit ridiculous that answers like this don't go beyond the medical community-unless you have a great doctor that takes the time to explain things.

Just for your knowledge in case you wanted to start taking these:
Adults up to 150 pounds take 1 daily
Every 50 pounds after that, take another

------------------------------------------
Along with the Flintstones, I am also currently taking (as recommended by my wonderful Doctor) Metamucil With Calcium (3 in morning, 3 in evening--Fiber is GOOD for you-and you wont be on the toilet all day every day-your body adjusts to it, trust me), Vitamin D (1 daily because its the only thing the Calcium is lacking in Metamucil-and I don't drink much milk because of the Cholesterol), Fish Oil (a good one for everyone!)

I'm currently about halfway through a tub of Costco multi-vitamins, and a tub of Costco calcium...but when I finally get through them I'm thinking Flinstones will be the next vitamin of choice, love the flavors!!

I believe it! You know what though - they make me shake and feel all weird when I eat them. I have a thing with vitamins (except b-complex) I love the taste though!

My friend still takes them and she gave me one a year or so ago - I barely made it home shaking and puking. WEIRD!

I was shocked when my Doc recommended Flintstones vitamins to me. I took them for awhile, but the gritty taste drove me crazy. I switched to the gummy bear vitamins and love them!
