    Lately I feel very tired and I'm lacking concentration.
    I have a balanced diet and low in fat, I eat the same, but somehow the food doesn't taste as good lately. it's like food doesn't have a taste anymore. weird.

    Anyhow, would you recommend me to take a Multivitamins?
    And which one?
    exams are coming up and I want to be strong !

    I used to take Berocca last year because I kept going through periods of having no energy and stuff but tbh I don't think it made me feel any better!! My friend is adamant that vitamin supplements make him feel worse because as soon as he stops taking them he ends up with a cold!

    Also you need to take them regularly for a few weeks before feeling the benefits (I read that in a sunday broadsheet health supplement once :awesome:

    All in all I'd say up your intake of actual fruit and veg especially vitamin c like oranges!!

    GO TO YOUR DOCTOR.

    Frankly most vitamin and mineral supplements are practically useless and in some cases potentially harmful. Unless you have the results of a blood test saying that you are deficient in a certain area don't bother.

    I have a balanced diet and low in fat,
    That doesn't mean that you're eating a decent diet.

    How is this good advice? That'll just mask the problem, not cure it. Humans aren't meant to feel tired and lack the ability to concentrate all the time.

    Everyones different bro, Maybe his diets isnt at his best in carbs, he could go to the doctor but itl be the usual blood test to take his blood and then theyl send him to some next longg tests to see whats wrong... at the end theyl probably just change yur diet so im giving that advice now.

    "Isn't at his best" wtf does that mean? The only specific he gives is low fat so MAYBE that's an issue? Strong grammar btw. Inb4 dyslexic.

    I used to be just like you, run down and stuff, so my mum said I should try taking multivitamins and I am feeling better. But I think its more of a combination of having a better sleeping pattern and the nicer weather!
    Worth a try though, they are dead cheap.
