One of my roommate will be traveling to England in a few weeks (her first visit). Has anyone encountered any trouble carrying your supplements through customs. She will be bringing:

Damage control - multi vitamin
Omega 3 fish oils
Primal Calm
Vitamin D3

I've never had a problem traveling to any country carrying either vitamins or prescription medicines. If you are concerned, just be sure to keep the stuff in the original containers so that it is obvious what each item is. That said, after many years of travel, I have never once been questioned by customs about any vitamins/medicines that I was carrying.

I have never had a problem taking over-the-counter vitamins to England. Nor have I had a problem with prescriptions. Just make sure they are all in their original packaging and are at the top of your bag. I usually buy a fresh supply before I leave and make sure the seals are intact. If you are taking a prescription, be sure you have enough to last your stay.

Enjoy yourself.
