Hi all, hope you're all well and safe. I'm thinking of taking some vitamins or supplements to help me feel more energized or just better in general and I'm wondering which one(s) to get. Are there any that are good for diabetics or some that I should avoid? There so much information out there online I thought I'd come here and ask y'all.

I am a 59-year old woman, past menopause and had a hysterectomy, so I take a lot of supplements. A womans multi, D3, Biotin, C, B Complex and Hyaluronic Acid. Along with 81 mg baby aspirin and an antihistamine. Currently, I take liquid vitamins from MaryRuths, it has no sugar in them. I found the gummies have a lot of sugar in them. I gag on tablets.
I recommend you take what you need because we can't get it all from our food. Do your homework to find out what and how much you need daily. Learn about the differences of fat soluble and water soluble vitamins. Read the ingredients of your vitamins and look up what you don't know, many tablets are over processed for long shelf life.
I think here is a good start: https://www.webmd.com › features
