Can adults take children’s vitamins?
Children and adults have different dietary needs, so it’s best not to take children’s vitamins during adulthood unless advised by your doctor.
Taking them probably won’t cause you any harm, but you may find that you’ll be lacking the essential vitamins you need for your age.
However, the dosage is typically lower in children’s vitamins compared to an adult variety, and they’re easier to take, too.
If you’re concerned about experiencing side effects with stronger vitamins or struggle to take them, speak to your doctor to see if they’d be right for you.
What does it mean for a vitamin supplement to be halal?
Halal is the Arabic word for ‘permissible’, and food that adheres to Islamic law is known as halal food.
In Islam, animals must be slaughtered by a cut to the jugular vein, carotid artery, and windpipe, so all the blood is drained from the carcass.
Many vitamins are encased in a soft gel capsule that is made from gelatine, an animal-based product.
For a vitamin or supplement to be considered halal, it must be made from an animal product that has been slaughtered following the practice of Islam.
Does my child need vitamin D?
All children need vitamin D, starting shortly after birth.
Not only does vitamin D help your child to build strong bones, but it can prevent them from developing bone conditions such as rickets, a condition that softens bones and can occur in growing children.
The age of your child matters when it comes to their vitamin D intake.
Speak to your doctor for advice on how much vitamin D you should be giving your child.
Who should take B vitamins?
There are 8 B vitamins in total, but the ones you might recognise the most are biotin, folate (folic acid) and vitamin B12.
You can also take a vitamin B complex which includes all of the recommended doses of all 8 in a single supplement.
Vitamin B impacts your energy levels, brain function, metabolism, and is especially important for pregnant and breastfeeding women as it aids fetal development and can reduce the risk of birth defects.
Taking vitamin B is important for older men, too, as it can increase testosterone levels which are thought to naturally decrease with age.
