The Reason Why I No Longer Take A Multivitamin Anymore

Before I entered college I use to take a multivitamin everyday because my mom and doctor told me to take one.  However, once I got into college my nutrition teacher told me vitamins are useless. I was totally shocked.

Why My Nutrition Teacher Said Multivitamins Are Useless?

She said not all multivitamins are useless but a lot of them are just sugar cubes basically.    We did this experiment that fascinated me in class. We filled a cup of water with vinegar and I forget what else.  The whole point of the experiment was if the vitamin dissolved in the solution its useful, if not then it just sits in your immune system.

Bye Bye Vitamins

After that experiment I was like I am no longer taking anymore vitamins.  Now I eat more fruits and veggies to get the nutrients that I need. No more gummy vitamins or any vitamins that don’t do anything.
