  1. how important is a multivitamin??? ha


    hey guys, everything i get into as far as protein, pre wrkout etc gets pretty expensive and multi's seem pricey as well. just wondering if multi's are that important or what haha stupid question..

    thanks in advance


  2. Multis aren't that expensive, and I dunno do you think your health is important? haha I'd get multis before pre workout supps but thats just beacause I like my healthy body lol

  3. Multi's are good stuff. Truth be told, I'm not too convinced there is a huge difference between the cheap and expensive multi's. Sure, your more expensive multi's are probably going to have more bioavailable forms of vitamins, but multi's are overdosed anyways. You'll never get 100% absorption with a multi, if your body doesn't need it its going to be excreted and different nutrients/minerals need different environments to be optimally absorbed anyways.

    But i'd still get a multi, even if its a cheap one. Diet wise, multivitamins are an insurance policy. It'll fill in the cracks, so to speak, because (outside of health conditions that will effect absorption) your body will be able to get what your diet is not optimally providing.

    It's not that cheap. There are a lot cheaper options.
    Animal pak is a quality multi though.

  6. thanks guys, appreciate it

  7. Animal pak is a quality multi though.
    Agreed. AP kicks ass, haven't gotten it in awhile though....

  8. AP is expensive tho... haha

  9. ive been using Russian Bear Multivitamins.

    these got alot of different stuff in it like some herbs and anabolic activators as well as antioxidants.

    but ya you can just buy some reg vitamins at you local drug store and take twice a day (1 with breakfast 1 with dinner) and youll be good. i also believe that vitamins are vitamins why pay more for the same stuff. o yah thats right the package does look cooler.

  10. cant go wrong with flintstone vitamins

  11. I've been taking Centrum for years, what's the jury on those?

    This is what I am currently taking, and I actually started taking it as a result of winning a controlled contest, which turned me on to them.

    Vitamins are Vitamins. Also sure, they might have a bit more of certain vitamins then are needed. However, you can't deny that the nutritional needs of an athlete are higher then that provided by your average daily. I am more then happy with my Orange Triad, and can't really image a reason in which I would switch from them.
    Just inject.

  14. MVP by MST all they way, the best MV on the planet.

  15. i use orange triad and duel tabs

  16. best bang for buck multi IMO is NOW's ADAM or ON's Opti-Men

  17. AOR'S Ortho-core. Great MV

  18. If your diet sux then multi's are important. If your diet is excellent then not so much.

    Costco multi ftw...

    diet on or not multis can be had dirt cheap and should be a part of your regimen

  20. Hell's Yeaah! I am repping the now ADAM Multi vitamins from nutraplanet...
    Like $10 for 1 months supply you cant go wrong with that....

    There have been times though when my diet was focused around the dollar store and I couldn't even afford vitamins, like several months straight , (being self employed can be very tough) but for the most part if I have the money I wont skip them not even for a day....

    I like to think of them more of peace of mind and insurance rather than necessary. I would much rather spend the $10 a month than get sick and lose 3 weeks worth of gains (or more, getting pneumonia is not bueno...)

    i've read that synthetic vitamins can cause cancer. and centrum has synthetic vitamins.


    http://www.chiff.com/a/natural-vitamin.htm is an example i found in 5 seconds just now.
    For me, the action IS the juice.

  22. I used to think that a MV was extremely important. Now, not so much. If your diet is focused around whole foods with minimal processing, your body will get more than enough vitamins and minerals.

    For the bodybuilder crowd, however, that seem to avoid fruit and rarely consume veggies: get tested to find out what vitamins you're actually lacking. I think supplementing with individual vitamins is much better than a one size fits all multi.

    Interesting. Guess I should look into buying a new type of vitamin, something more natural.

    multi's are over-rated.

    They are cheap as hell so until they are absolutely proven well over-rated, im going to continue using them

  26. If your gonna take em you gotta take the best. why would you try so hard to get the best supps and crap out on a store brand multi. Life Extension all the way..

  27. Realistically if you are eating properly you do not need a multi-vitamin. In fact there are vitamins and minerals that can be harmful if you take too much.

    Like a lot of people are saying if you have a decent diet then a MV isnt quite so important. If i was doing a hard core cut then i think a quality MV is in order but, IMO to dump a lot of money on a MV is more or less a waste. I dont really drop a lot of money on supps anyhow.

    Iron is really the only one this is one that comes to mind that you can more easily over do and most mens multis dont have any in them. I dont know of any other ones that are all that easy to over dose on but im really not knowledgeable on the majority of vitamins

    All the fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E, K) have a toxic level and are more of a concern than water-soluble vitamins because they are stored in the body longer. Also, zinc, magnesium, calcium, and others can have reach toxic levels, affect they way our body's work, or even cause irreversible harm.

    Not that all of these are easy to meet. Some are easier than others and most of the time is not a concern, but when people have certain illness or star mega dosing multivitamins and take other supps that have a lot of the same things in then you start reaching the possibility of surpassing the UL guidelines.

  30. not important at all. studies prove that people who supp with a multi have a shorter life expectancy. Google the Harvard study.
