Being a Teenager is Hard Work. Their Hormones are Raging, Have Mood Swings, High Energy then it Depletes, and Middle School can be Mind Challenging!
I have had several ask me how Sidney plays Softball and Basketball Daily. My answer is Organization!! (Which we are Still trying to Master.) But also to Keep Her Healthy with lots of Fresh Foods, Water and Supplements. So, These are the vitamins that she takes every morning and why.

I have started her on the above vitamins one at a time to ensure there are no side effects. Take about a week before adding another vitamin.
We Started with Vitamin B9.
Then Vitamin C.
(Please note Vit C will clean the gut of impurities so there may be a few loose stools at first. Don’t start another new vitamin until stools resume normal.)
Then add Vitamin E.
Then Vitamin A.
Then start Vitamin B12, then B6 and B1.
We have yet to try to start her on these two. I will add Vit D3 then Zinc last. Be Aware Zinc has lots of Side Effects and may not want to add to your regime. Side effects include but not limited to nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, metal taste, and abdominal cramps.
Vitamin D3 (Ergocalciferol) – Strengthen Bones to Prevent Fractures, Studies show Cancer Prevention, and Psoriasis. *Warning- This vitamin is not water soluble. Only take one a day. Fat soluble vitamins like this can be toxic if overdosed.
Zinc – Immune Boosting, Powerful Antioxidant, Cancer Prevention, Hormone Levels, Stress, Aging, Improve Physical Performance & Strength, Energy Levels, Reproductive Health & Fertility, Heart Health, Prevent Diabetes, Prevent Alzheimer’s, Improve Sleep & Cognition, Elevate Mood & Avoid Depression,Those Pimple Arm Bumps, Promotes Wound Healing, Dandruff, and Acne.
May want to pass on Zinc supplement and get it in foods.
Zinc foods- Oysters, Lamb, Wheat Germ, Pumpkin Seeds, Cashews, Brown Beans, and Cabbage.
Other Popular Supplements…
Magnesium, Calcium, Iron and Muscles… all go together. Professional Athletes add these to their daily plans for those Buff Bods. But a WARNING must be given. Remember, The Heart is also a muscle. An enlarged heart is why many athletes kill over Dead. So, Do NOT take
Magnesium, Calcium, and Iron without talking to your Doctor first.
I have excluded Vitamins B2 and B3. There are side effects that have to be monitored closely. So it is far better to get these from foods.
B2 foods- Cheese, Nuts, Steak, Eggs, and Spinach.
B3 foods- Fish, Chicken, Turkey, Mushrooms and Green Peas.
And there it is! My plan for the Teenager. FYI.. It’s the Same Plan for Male of Female, Teenager or Adult. (I take them too!) But Elementary Age Children can take Chewable Flintstones with Vitamin C, (my favorite). There are Sufficient for their Growing Bodies. Enjoy!
