Excess Folic acid, being a synthetic form of folate, can be problematic for some people. Depends how well their body does at converting it to l-methylfolate. Seeing as how in the USA a lot of foods are fortified with it, I personally avoid it in any supplements. If I were to supplement folate I would use 5-mthf

Specifically something like metafolin, extrafolate-s or maybe quatrefolic which is the s-isomer. There is still a question afaik on whether the r-isomer or the racemic mixture could possibly be detrimental. If anyone knows of any further data shedding light on the isomers, please let us know.

LCLT (each at 2 Gr/day), Beta Alanine (4 Gr/day), Taurine (2 Gr/day), Tyrosine (1 Gr/day), AAKG, ALA (600 Mg/day), and Cittruline Malate (6 Gr/day), and I would like to add Inositol, IP-6, TMG and Choline Citrate. For those most informed, can you please suggest daily amounts of Inositol, IP-6, TMG and Choline Citrate?

What is a good dosage for CoQ10?. I see varying opinions depending on what its "used for". I think I may get a bottle of 100mg caps when I have the money and maybe make it a "staple" of mine.

Also I've been going back and fourth in my mind wondering about Vitamin D3 supplementation. It just seems way too hyped lately. I could just go ahead and get some and start using it but I don't really think that is safe. Never been tested for it and none of my doctors have ever suggested getting tested. I say "doctors" because I've switched doctors several times in the past year because I have not been happy with my physician. They always seem to rush me out and I'm never given the opportunity to ask questions.

It depends. If you stop spending money on a lot of unnecessary supplements and just use health type basic supplements I think it is affordable. It's not affordable for me now, but once I catch up on bills and rent....That is, IF I catch up then I will budget for it because it does have many benefits that I think are much more important than supplements that are just for ergogenic value.

Coop do you have any input on whether a greens supplement like I posted above is worth the cost? I think Green Vibrance runs about $50-$55 for a 60 day supply and has one of the most extensive profiles I've seen.
