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.
Can vitamin supplements cause stomach pain or diarrhoea?
Vitamin supplements usually won’t cause stomach problems like pain, nausea, or diarrhoea.
However, it’s important to note that supplements can have side effects sometimes, and stomach issues can be some of these.
This can happen if you’re sensitive or allergic to any of the ingredients in your supplement or simply because the supplement isn't right for you.
If you experience any side effects after taking a vitamin or supplement, you should speak to your doctor or pharmacist right away and ask for their advice.
Are gummy vitamins halal?
Gummy vitamins are a popular choice, especially for those who struggle to take tablets, like small children.
However, most gummy vitamins are usually made with the animal product gelatine, so you’ll need to look for a vegetarian alternative or a halal-certified product.
But these might still contain alcohol, so always read the label carefully to be safe.
Can vitamins interfere with sleep?
If you’re taking vitamin D too close to bedtime, it may affect your sleep quality, as high amounts of vitamin D in the body may interfere with the production of melatonin.
However, other studies suggest that having a low amount of vitamin D in your body may lead to a higher amount of disturbances, and reduced sleep quality and duration.
It’s probably easier to take your vitamins along with your morning meal, but until there is concrete evidence, experiment and find a routine that works best for you.
