I was just wondering if any of you are taking any particular vitamins, either for health in general, or aimed at your copd in particular. I have made vague attempts at incorporating certain vits into daily life, but I tend to miss days and eventually give up.
I am now looking into it all anew as part of my overall strategy in fighting the progression of this disease and gaining the best health possible in the circumstances. Problem is it can be an expensive game once you start taking a number of vits on a regular basis.
Since starting my serious exercise routine and diet, I had been taking a good multi vit and mineral (that dissolves in glass of water to make an orange drink) and 5,000 iu Vit D3 daily.
I know scientists have / are doing a lot of research into vits A (as retinoic acid/ retinol) and vitD3, and their effects on lung health, and I'm sure they look at other vits too. I know a lot of Americans with copd are advised by their pulmo docs to take D3 too. I also think Co Q10 is good for aiding oxygenation of blood /tissues - but good quality and strength Co q10 isn't cheap! In fact, most decent vits cost a fair bit. I would NOT waste my money on a certain high street 'health' store vits (H and B) as you may as well swallow cardboard for all the good they do you.
Anyhow folks, what do you think? Are you taking anything? Do let's discuss this. - Look forward to reading your thoughts on it, Love Vanessa
