Mom says because he did not want to run a risk of her catching any time of virus, etc. and vitamin C is suppoe to help boost your system to ward things like that off. They still have her taking it every day.
I would def. reccomend vitamins to others. My mother had major heart surgery and during her recovery her heart surgeon made sure she had Vitamin C once a day.
That's interesting, do you know why he recommended Vit C?

I would definitely tell people to use vitamins. :)

This pretty much exactly. Especially if they were pregnant or had a certain health issue like anemia.
I would if I knew they didn't eat a healthy diet. Vitamins help you get some of those vitamins and minerals you don't get from not eating so healthy. Sometimes it's hard for me to get all the vitamins and minerals from what I eat. I know I could add more of a vegetable variety in my diet.

Good advise... Always check with your doctor first
Yes I would but would make sure they consult their MD first in case they have underlying health condtions that I may not know about.

I would tell them what I take and why, but I would not recommend other vitamins- I am a nurse and have a license to protect-

I have had people ask me for recommendations and I have given my opinion.

No I would NEVER recommend vitamins for people. My recommendation has always been TALK TO YOUR DOCTOR FIRST! Most OTC vitamins - especially ones marketed to hair, nails and skin typically contain an overdose of minerals and vitamins which can cause long term health problems to the liver, stomach and other organs.
Nature's Bounty Optimal Solutions Extra Strength Hair, Skin and Nails vitamins actually contains 1667% above the recommended dose of Biotin. It also contains 333% more than the recommended dose of Thiamin and excess Thiamin can cause high blood pressure which in turn if the person already has hypertension this can lead to more problems or even possibly a heart attack. Overdoses of biotin can lead to kidney and liver damage.
NEVER take ANY vitamin or mineral without first talking to your doctor and if possible a blood test to determine if you are deficiant in minerals and vitamins.

I would most definitely recommend people to take vitamins. However, you need to be careful which vitamins you are taking...some cause more harm than do good. Due to soil depletion our fruits and vegetables are not as rich in minerals and vitamins. Also, we are eating way too many processed foods. So even if we think we are eating well...we truly are not. There was a study that stated you would basically need to live on a farm and grow your own fruits/veggies to have a rich enough diet.
