Healthy Vitamins

(This is a sponsored post)

Since Hubby and I are thinking about starting a family soon, I've been pretty much obsessed about my health. I worry about all the usual stuff--eating the right foods and exercising in a healthy manner--but I'm also concerned about my vitamins.

Fortunately, there are websites like that help guide me through the vitamin process. The site lists and reviews various vitamin vendors--like and GNC. The reviews of the vendors include things like information about selection, prices, shipping and other products.

Moreover, includes detailed information about various vitamins--like Vitamin A, Vitamin B and Vitamin C--to help education consumers. The overviews of the vitamins include information about food sources and spotting a deficiency.

If you are thinking about having a baby my OBGYN told me to start taking pre-natal vitamins which you can get over the counter at Wal-Mart or your grocery store. Make sure the vitamin you choose has the following:

4,000 and 5,000 IU (international units) of vitamin A
800 and 1,000 mcg (1 mg) of folic acid
400 IU of vitamin D
200 to 300 mg of calcium
70 mg of vitamin C
1.5 mg of thiamine
1.6 mg of riboflavin
2.6 mg of pyridoxine
17 mg of niacinamide
2.2 mcg of vitamin B-12
10 mg of vitamin E
15 mg of zinc
30 mg of iron

The Vitamin A needs to be as Beta Carotene. Most important vitamins out of all of this are Vitamin A, Folic Acid, Calicum, and vitamin D.
