vitamin water and regular vitamins?

Ive recently been drinking alot of vitamin water, is vitamin water more helpful to your body then regular water because it has vitamins such as C,B6,B12, and zinc? im not saying im giving up water, but insted of drinking plain water with a meal should i have vitamin water to get more vitamins then i normally would?
Also, what are some good vitamins i should take as a teenage girl? anything in perticular to help me to loose weight and get my recomended amount of vitamins per day.


vti answers:

Vitamin water is just a way for them to charge more for a bottle of water. It would be much cheaper for you to drink regular water and take a good brand (One a Day, Centrum) of multi-vitamin. Getting more vitamins than is recommened is really a waste. Oh, and the vitamins won’t help you lose weight (you need to diet and exercise), but they will help to improve your overall healt so you will fell like exercising.

Carol asks…

do vitamins have calories in them?

i take vitamin C, E, calcium, vita lea, and Lisene. so do these specific vitamins have calories in them?

vti answers:

No, vitamins have no calories in them.. But u want a vitamin that is water soluble.. This way it can be flushed out if u have too much.. Some vitamins like vitamin E are fat soluble and they can be stored.. Really you do not need alot of vitamin E if u take a multi vitamin and eat well

As well, the calcium, you should take calcium Citrate or calcium magnesium.. It is aborbed so much better then calcium phosphate…

Sandy asks…

what is b12 vitamin do?

what is b12 vitamins for ?

vti answers:

Vitamin B12 helps support energy but does not provide it. For example, if you take a B12 supplement without calories, you’re not going to get the boost of energy because that’s not what it provides, just what it support, like other B Vitamins. Also, you need Vitamin B12 to make red blood cells which carry oxygen to your body. A deficiency leads to anemia which makes you feel tired, weak, have pale skin, can cause constipation and diarrhea, etc. Most people do not have a problem with Vitamin B12 unless they are vegan or have impaired absorption because it stays in your system so long. Elderly could also have a problem. Some people may have to get B12 shots, not because they don’t consume it but because their body doesn’t absorb it as readily.

Thomas asks…

Foods with vitamin B12?

What foods have vitamin B12?

vti answers:

You may have heard of people taking vitamin B-12 supplements of shots. Do you need to take supplements, and are the shots truly of value?

We need vitamin B-12 for red blood cell production, a healthy nervous system, and to prevent anemia. Vitamin B-12 is also needed for the production of DNA.

Many weight loss clinics are prescribing B-12 shots, but most doctors do not believe this improves weight loss efforts. If you think your might be B-12 deficient, ask your doctor for a test; most people have stored enough B-12 to last them for years. While a vitamin B-12 shot may help you if you are truly anemic or deficient (which can be determined by a blood test), it will not improve your metabolism or make your more energetic if you are already getting enough vitamin B-12. Ask your doctor before you start taking vitamin B-12 shots or taking large doses of supplements, because too much B-12 can interfere with the effectiveness of particular medications.

Most people get plenty of vitamin B-12 if they regularly eat animal products. Most Americans get plenty of vitamin B-12 in their diet simply by eating milk, eggs, meat, shellfish, and fortified products. The people who need to worry are vegans–those who don’t eat meat, eggs, or dairy products. However, if vegans eat fortified cereals, they probably aren’t at high risk of deficiency.

If you get between 2.6-2.8 micrograms of vitamin B-12 a day, you’re probably getting enough. Just one cup of milk plus a suggested serving of fortified cereal can meet your vitamin B-12 needs for the day. If you have a deficiency, you probably have a problem absorbing B-12 or using the B-12 that your body has already stored. This may happen if the intestinal wall is not absorbing B-12 or if there is a problem with the body releasing B-12 that was previously absorbed. In most cases, people store vitamin B-12 for years, meaning deficiency is unusual.
