      How does the Swisse company's supplement make you feel different?

    •  

      I used to use Swisse and my doctor said they weren't great as a brand, she said there are better options.

      •  

        Which company does she own shares in… ah, I mean, which supplements should I buy and how many can I take?

      •  

        But Ricky Ponting tell me a different story!

    •  

      You’re not really going to feel better with multi-vitamins according to some experts.

      You may, possibly, live longer with a better quality of life, maybe, with less chance of heart disease and cancer and if not it didn’t cost you much.

      The equation is better with cheaper brands other than Blackmores though.

          Do you believe that sailors used to get scurvy before Vit C was discovered?

          •  

            @0jay: I do.

            I also believe when sailors where commonly prone to scurvy they had an occupation that situated them on the confines of a 17/18th century vessel for the better part of a year or more with strict rations devoid of fresh produce including citrus fruits.

            Not applicable to me. I walk 900m down the road and pick up some of these bad boys for $2/kg (https://www.woolworths.com.au/shop/productdetails/254080/woo...).

            Back to modern times, though… I'm very interested in reading clinical studies. I do love to learn new things.

              Ok, the point is that isolating a vitamin compound for use as nutritional supplement can remedy dietary deficits.

              Clearly a sailor with scurvy is in an extreme environment and the odd fresh orange would solve his problem. I don't think it's a stretch to suggest that it can be a challenge to graze all the food groups on a daily basis such that a person's nutritional requirements are not being properly met.

                @0jay: What's the statistical incidences of micronutrient deficiencies of adults in Australia? (or other similar developed countries, if epidemiological studies are easier to find elsewhere)

                •  

                  @miracle: No idea. I can tell you though, try as I might (and I've been working on this problem for 50 odd years), I get mouth ulcers (on my tongue too) if I'm not living with someone who's feeding me fruit and veg and home cooked meals. It's painful and unpleasant and it is bad for my mental health (I begin to perceive myself as dilapidated and irredeemably broken (go figure)). What I have found is, multis prevent the ulcers. YMMV

                    I get mouth ulcers…

                    That's vitamin B12 deficiency. Fortified cereals and eggs and diary are the healthiest sources for that, as well as some red meats and chicken. In addition to vitamin B12, they provide a whole lot more yummy macro- and micronutrient goodness 😋

                    … I've been working on this problem for 50 odd years… if I'm not living with someone who's feeding me fruit and veg and home cooked meals

                    I think your money might better be spent redirected from bottles of supplements sold by multi-national corporations to other issues…

                      I wont go into the rest of my diet only to say most people would not see it as deficient (and if you're not a nutritionist you should probly reconsider being so righteous).

                      You've clearly got some issues with the idea of supplements ('multinational corporations'..? erm, yes indeed), mebbe you should come to terms with your bias and move along.

                        That might be adequate to meet vitamin B12 (and other nutrient) needs. It's not possible to conclude without quantifying and considering the rest of your diet. That is best done with a health professional (your trusted local doctor, in the first instance) who will consider your risk of B12 deficiency as well as other less common causes of mouth ulceration.

                        and if you're not a nutritionist you should probly reconsider being so righteous

                        I am a health professional. But I won't personalize myself in the discussion.

                        I do have an issue with multinational corporations peddling supplements. They are profiting off the ignorance of vulnerable people, and obscuring the issues of their need to address more salient nutrient and health needs. On that issue, it's not bias, it's a prevalent health issue in developed countries. I am biased, however, on the fact that I own a shareholding in these companies via investment funds, and I am personally profiting on their success. But that's an issue for me to consider in regards to ethical investing, and not relevant to this discussion.

                          You obviously think you can solve the world's problems with your penetrating intellect. You should get into public policy. Failing that, I dare say you would be a better person (if not a better professional in whatever area you specialise in) were you to accept you don't know everything. Further to that you might acknowledge to yourself what an ass of yourself you can be patronising strangers on the internet about whom you know virtually nothing.

                            Great. Let's go through some clinical studies and get to the bottom of your consumer need for supplements.

                                No, but it's what lead us into 17th century scurvy 😂

                                Despite the detours, the overarching question is: how small is the minority of Australians that have a micronutrient deficiency in which a supplement (rather than addressing diet) may assist, and just how big is the consumer uptake of these supplements beyond this very minor health need.

                                …you can stroke yourself off without an audience

                                I won't stroke. But I'll do an updated search of meta-analyses to see if there's anything new on the paucity of clinical evidence for supplements since last I studied.

                                Maybe you could venture there, too, if only to give the cognitive science theory a rest for one day…

                I buy fresh produce and meats from my local grocer and Woolworths. Those whole foods are meeting all of my macro- and micronutrient needs.

                I can't speak for every Australian and their access to fresh whole foods. I do know that >85% of Australian live in an urban center, and that the median household income is >$90,000. From those broad markers I can extrapolate an estimate of the minority that mightn't have that access.

                  Good for you. I don't really enjoy cooking much (certainly not eating the same thing for five or six days) and tend to eat as well as I can which is usually just ok. I think a lot of single people are similar.

                  You enjoy shopping/cooking/getting your variety that's great. All kinds of people with all kinds of skills or lack thereof though, might be good to take that on board rather than denigrate the very notion that someone may benefit from a supplement.

                    Cooking is fun when you're always exploring new recipes or alterations to existing ones, and even moreso when you're sharing meals. But like most hobbies, maybe not for everyone…

                    I work 70hrs of rostered work. I like to prioritize my time to good food at home and my health. Outside of that I get to a restaurant once or twice a week, and that's a real treat.

                    certainly not eating the same thing for five or six days

                    Meals I rarely repeat more than once a month. There are staple like fruit, vegetables, and whole grains that are always tasty and easily amenable to little changes. Part of the fun of upskilling at cooking and food preparation is improving your repertoire of meals 😊

                    the very notion that someone may benefit from a supplement

                    As long as were insightful in where the deficiency in one's life sits and what justifications we're using…

                        I have. Everyone. I haven't met someone who doesn't enjoy food, and that joy is augmented when they invest time into cooking and food prep and expand their diet.

                            It's a common theme in life. What you choose to prioritise with the time you have. For me, health is at the top of the list, and I hope that investment is paying dividends in my life expectancy, the quality of life I live now, and the time and health I can spend with family and loved ones. It's hard to argue that there is anything else in life to prioritize more than that, but each make their own decisions…
