neeed help with discussion posts for nutrition

I need an explanation for this Health & Medical question to help me study.

Post 1) Are multivitamin/mineral supplements truly “insurance in a bottle”? Why or why not? You need to respond to this question yourself with evidence/citation.

post 2) Calculate your daily calcium needs using one of the following calculators https://www.iofbonehealth.org/calcium-calculator (Links to an external site.)

or https://www.medindia.net/patients/calculators/daily-calcium-chart.asp (Links to an external site.)

Track your diet/water intake for 3 days on Myfitnesspal. Especially pay attention to your calcium, Vitamin D and magnesium intakes. Using the calcuator results and the three day analysis of your diet, report on the following:

For vitamin D and magnesium can also use https://www.food-nutrients-calculator.com/ (Links to an external site.)

  1. Do your results on the cacluator agree with your nutritional assessment in terms of your calcium intake? Why or why not?
  2. How many micrograms of vitamin D do you consume daily? Does the amount of sunlight exposure you get in your geographic location possibly affect vitamin D production?
  3. How many milligrams of magnesium do you consume daily?
  4. How does your intake of calcium, vitamin D and magnesium compare to recommendations?
  5. What changes can you make in your diet to more closely meet recommendations? Would you benefit from a single-nutrient or multi-nutrient supplement? If so, what supplement would you choose (for example, calcium citrate versus calcium carbonate, vitamin D, vitamin K, magnesium, multivitamins)?
