Centrum Multivitamins


player

Recommended Posts

I take Centrum multivitamins, and I need to buy a new box, here in Pattaya.

 

Are the pharmacies here all pretty much the same pricewise, or is there a place I can get them at a better deal?

 

Are there any other considerations? They wouldn't sell fakes, would they????

 

Advice I've seen on another post was "Many people seem to prefer the one beside Tims Bar on second road. I have bought a few things from there and prices seem reasonable and no counterfeits as far as I know."

 

But that was about Viagra, etc.

 

Any comment? Much appreciated!

 

Thanks,

p.s. I'm looking for natural souce vitamin E, too.

I just buy them at Boots. They frequently have a deal where you buy a box of 100 and get a box of 30 for free. I only go to next door to Tim's Bar for Kamagra.

Centrum is quite expensive. You can get a cheaper brand for half the price.

If you drink a lot you should find a multi vitamin that does not contain iron.

 

As cirrhosis is caused by copper and iron fighting with each other and the iron winning.

 

And you lose.

That's not entirely accurate. Iron has no business being in vitamin pills anyway, and to overdose it by nutrition, you need to shove an oven down the throat. Iron overload is usually caused by a genetic defect, is a cause of cirrhosis, but not on par with alcohol and hepatitis virae.

Vitamins are expensive here. Many order them from back home and have them shipped here regular post to avoid customs charges.

I also take Centrum multivitamins. The cheapest place I've found them is in Central Festival. If you go to the bottom floor there are 2 Chemists beside one another next to the food court. The smaller one of the two has the tubs of 30 for 200 baht. This is the cheapest I've found them in Pattaya. They also have bigger packs but I don't know the price.

Personally I wouldn't buy the cheap alternatives that some health shops sell. Centrum has the best vitamin profile around and because it is manufactured by Pfizer you can be sure of the quality of the product.

Both of those chemists are very good and also cheap.

All vitamins are not equal. Consider choosing an organic vitamins over synthetic chemical vitamins. Organic vitamins are helpful while synthetic ones are harmful and taxing to the body.

Also remember that vitamins are supplements and does not take the place of real food. Try to eat variety of nutritious food everyday for health. This means food that is grown from nature and in different colors (organic meats, chicken, fish, tomatoes, apples, carrots, peppers, pineapples, watermelon, etc). Stay away from processed foods that is in packages and boxes (processed meats, cereals, chips, cookies, juices, etc.) with many chemical ingredients and favor enhancers. Yes, they are delicious and convenient but it is your health. "Up to you."

 

…the big “brand name” vitamins on the shelves of most grocery and drug stores are synthetic toxins which not only DO NOT foster good health, but are mutagenic and carcinogenic. This means they are basically Poison for the body, fueling disease and disorders, including arthritis, osteoporosis, brittle bones, cancer, and yes, Alzheimer’s disease. Did you know Pfizer owns “Centrum?” Did you know Bayer owns “One-a-Day?”

Walking into a nutritional nightmare is easy if you don’t know the “low down” on supplements. Dangerous supplements can reverse what you are trying to accomplish. Also, many multivitamins, especially the chewable ones, contain Aspartame, one of the leading causes of Fibromyalgia and IBS (irritable bowel syndrome).

Please provide a reputable source other than one that is pushing organic vitamins. Mayo Clinic would be reputable. The one you quoted is not.

I always bring vitamins and such into LoS,the prices charged and selection available is poor to say the least.

 

Thais don't use supplements,hence the higher prices and restricted choices.

 

Pack them with your luggage if you are a visitor!

Build a man a fire,and he'll be warm for a day. Set a man on fire,and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

Centrum are a poor choice for vitamins. The active ingredients in most of their lines is very small.

 

Thailand has very few good vitamin products. Blackmores would be better than Centrum and even Blackmores are not the best.

 

If you want the best vitamins you need to order online. Look for Metagenics products or Ethical Nutrients, Swisse or Mediherb. These are by far the best vitamins available.

The 'best' multivitamins for me would be the one that covers the needs of my body best, no idea which one that is. The best for you is probably a different brand. However, to say organic vitamins are better than synthetic vitamins is utter nonsense. If they are the same chemical compound, then they are identical. Could even be that pollution rather occurs in nature, than a factory. If you believe this,

can you take any medication against any condition? By far most drugs are synthesized.
