I'm getting ready for the winter and have my flu jab booked for 1st October. I'm also looking at getting a supply of vitamins, as recommended for people with copd. But I hate taking pills of any description (not because I can't swallow them, but because I worry about allergies and side-effects). I'm looking at Vitamin C, D (which I should take anyway, as I suffer from SAD) and echinacea. With the vitamin C, what is the best dose to take - and is it better to take tablets, capsules or solubles? Vitamin D - is it best to take this on its own (as D3) or with calcium and magnesium - and, again, what's the best dose and are tablets are capsules preferable? Echinacea - pills or drops?
I'd be very grateful for any advice - thanks!
Oh, and here's a photo of my cat, Ruby (if it comes out!)
