Yeah man thats wild. I just can't take that many pills at once or even over the span of the day. I took Animal cuts for maybe a week before I got sick of the pills. It was like 18 a day.
Ideally one should really strive to get vit. & minerals through a balanced diet, they are the best way to recieve them and are more readily absorbed in the body. I know multi-vitamins are way more conveinent approach but they don't come with all the healthy extra benefits of say eating an apple, or bananas which come with enzymes like quercetin, or bromelain which all help with the absorption of foods>vits. & minerals. I'm not saying give up on taking multi-vitamins, they have their place, but strive to eat a balanced diet and you can reduce taking multi-vits. and save some $$ bc them multivits are expensive.
I think that my diet personally is very diverse and I do get a good amount of my daily intake from it, but for whatever I do miss, let's say the multi's suggestion is 6 a day being 2 with each major meal....I just take 2 a day instead.
saves money and stetches the bottle.
I hear ya. I just about cracked when I saw the actual 'paks' of the vitamins. I was like, wtf?
It became too much for me at first. I even tried crushing them up into a fine powder and adding them to my protein shakes, but all I could taste were the vitamins.
I now take them throughout the day. I pop a couple here and there with some water. Not so bad.
I have Animal Cuts as well. Just waiting to be able to use my Atomic Meltdown, Thermo-Glide, Napalm, DCP, and Recreate with it.
Eww animal pak = rip off IMO
I tried a multi by AST Pretty good stuff. But now im just sticking to Natures Made Multis From Walgreens, Pretty damn good in my opinon
I am an animal pak fan myself but I also hear good things about orange triad

Since you're going to absorb so little of them in the first place, I just go for cheap generics or something like nature made, etc.
It's a supplement, and I try to get plenty of fruit & veggies along with my protein, so I feel I'm covered well enough.
Right, a lot of people are missing the point. A multi-vitamin is there as a pre-caution to prevent deficiencies in your diet. So taking one with all this extra crap in it...say for example Animal Pak(or should I say Newbie Pak)....is pointless, they are just adding extra ingredients at tiny dosages to your Multi-vitamin which do nothing but raise the price.
Orange triad is nice. it has an all in one complex. Ive tried many Multi's. For all in one I like Orange Triad and I dont like taking 3 caps in one serving as far as not being glucosamine, chondition, msm, digestion I choose Orange Triad. I did notice gas went down when I started taking this. With that said I take digestive enzymesz seperately in between meals .
Nows Adam. . totally awesome as a multi
Ast- strong Multi
opti men- pretty good
basicallly you cant go wrong with any top quality Multi.
And just so you know you need to really observe the multi you take because it make lack something... For example natures made- Lack Magnesium giving 6% of your mag... which can lead to a def if you don't make it up in other ways...
