14 Got My Vitamins


I'm set and ready to go. I have everything!! I have my Multi-Vitamin, B-Complex, Vitamins C and MSM!! (Missing my Omega 3's in the picture, which is located in the fridge for freshness).  My intention is to feed my body with the necessary nutrients for good health, strength and energy. Healthy hair is just the added bonus. In my previous blogs I mentioned that I wanted to get back on track with my vitamins (for overall health and aid in eliminating shedding), well it's about to begin. The Black Tea Rinse really helped to eliminate the excess shedding immediately (noticed a difference in 2 days), however, these vitamins will help restore any areas that are deficient in my body i.e. Calcium, Iron etc., these categories are vital to healthy hair growth and maintenance.

My plan is to take:

1 Multi-vitamin daily
1 Super B Complex daily
1 Vitamin C daily
1 MSM every other day
1 Omega 3 (not in picture) daily

Materna has been my Multi-vitamin of choice since my pregnancy (2010). It's a "one tablet a day" vitamin, which I love so that I never forget to take it, plus it's easy to swallow. The B Complex is loaded with B vitamins along with Iron (prevent shedding) and Biotin (increase thickness). Vitamin C helps to absorb all of the nutrients and enhance the immune system. In addition, the MSM helps to prolong the growth phase during the hair growth cycle, thus shedding is significantly minimized. I definitely have to increase my water intake to ensure that the nutrients circulates properly. Just so I can keep track, I plan on getting a vitamin organizer to monitor my daily dosage :)

  1. Hi Sunshyne! thank you for the blog post, you posted it at the right moment for me. I will receive my vitamins this morning, and I was asking myself whether I should take them before, during or after meals... what is the best moment according to you?
    I ordered (1) B Complex with Vitamin C, (2) MSM 1000 mg, and (3) Biotin 5 mg. I intend to take 1 tablet daily for the B-complex with Vitamin C and the MSM, and 1 tablet every other day for the Biotin... Is it ok?

  2. Looks good! Best healthy wishes for 2013!!

    Just wanted to add for those who want to follow your good example but dont have money to buy all those tablets. C-vitamin is found in all fruits and vegetable. Oranges, cabbage and tomatoes specifically but also potatoes, carrots and all other vegetables of colour are rich sources to C-vitamin. Very few people are low on C-itamin. So if you are eating fresh fruit and vegetables every day, not very big amount needed, A glass of natrual juice cover your daily requirement, then yuo can skip the c-vitamin an focus on the other food supplments.

  3. Hi Charty, I'm glad I posted it then :). You don't have to take the pills with meals. From what you've mentioned your plan sounds great. The biotin dosage is very high so make sure you drink a lot of water as acne could be one of the side affects.

  4. Hi Sunshyne. I look forward to your BTR blog. In the meantime, though, how often are you doing them?

    1. I've only done it once. I believe once a month is sufficient.

  5. Ok, thanks dear!!! Yeah, for the Biotin I was wondering about the dosage, and since acne is always knocking at my door (poor me... LOL) I think I should just take it once a week.

    1. Yes, space it out and see how your body reacts. With time, you can increase the frequency.

  9. Sunshyne your hair is glorious! However, please be careful with the IRON supplementation - if you are not pregnant or planning to be very soon it can accumulate like most metals within the body and eventually become poisonous and cause constipation. Otherwise, I think your regimens are great! Many blessings to you!
