Vitamin Recommendations

Recommended Posts

I was curious if anyone had recommendations for vitamins I can take daily to help keep my immune system in check. I'm not taking any right now, not even a multi-vitamin. I'm one of those people that do great for about a week and then get lazy. But, I know I need to change that.

L-Lysine, Zinc, Olive Leaf extract, b-vitamins (B-6 helps with nerve issues ... most help with energy). I personally have used a Mushroom based supplement ( I use Lifeshield Immunity) for any "bugs" that I get and it seems to help when my immune system is down....never thought to use it for Herpes but it wouldn't hurt :)

I'm taking 1g of lysine and the airborne daily multi vitamin with immune support. I honestly have NO idea if either makes a difference.. I was just diagnosed in August and have had 2 OBs.. Since that second one last month, I've decided to stay on suppressive therapy as well. I'm hoping to make it through this cold/flu season without getting sick and hopefully no more OBs lol!

i would be careful introducing all these supplements into your body at once. i went off on several and when i started taking antivirals i got a lot of "discomfort" in my side ( i have a very high pain tolerance, you would too if you met my ex) when i stopped all of the supplements it went away and now ive been introducing them again 1 at a time. im not taking lysine at all as with the antivirals i figure its moot.


i do like taking an Echinacea/goldenseal for a few days when i think something is going on. had it work wonders for colds and such in the past, however, i don't take that one no more than 4 days without a break.
