Dietary Supplements -- What do I need?

Hi everyone,

I'm a 24 year old female whose lost a little over 15 pounds in the past month a half after changing my diet to carb cycling and have been incorporating cardio and strength training into my workout routine.

I have PCOS and would love to know what supplements, i.e., vitamins, I can take to further develop a healthier lifestyle.

    I would ask your doctor as you have a medical condition.

    Do you take a women's daily multivitamin? That should be enough until you ask your doctor to run blood tests.
    Note: If it is not medically necessary insurance will not pay for blood tests. Careful with asking the doctor to run certain tests. They can be costly.

    Evidence is increasing that the best source of all the micro nutrients you need are best absorbed from food and a moderate dose of sunshine. Unless, of course, you have a specific deficit, in which case your doctor is your first port of call.
