    Multivitamin ???


    Hey guys, i did some searching on multiple forums for a good multivitamin for a bodybuilder type of activity. A lot of people said GNC's Mega Men was pretty good and that one came up the most, so i picked it up. 20 bucks got my 90 caplets and the serving size is 2. I've been doing just one a day for the past 3 days and already seeing my piss being neon yellow. I always heard you want the color to be almost clear...so is taking this bad? is this normal? good? or not good?

    Always thought if you see neon yellow coming out, means your not absorbing it?

    let me know what you guys think.

    it could mean ur not absorbing it all or ur not drinking enough water. so try drinking more water and try splitting the 2 pills up , i.e. 1pill breakfast 1 with dinner

    Your piss won't be clear if you're taking a decent multi. Don't worry about it. Do drink a half gallon to a gallon a day.

    bright yellow piss is normal after a multi, it means your b vitamin levels are topped off basically.. think of it like a gas tank, you want enough b vitamins to fill up the tank and any extra makes your piss yellow.. better to top it off and have some extra than not get enough. And as Poison said, just make sure are drinking enough water, though I prefer at least one gallon per day

    after you run through that MV though I would look at Controlled Labs' Orange Triad, its a multi and joint support and digestion/immune support.. its around $30 for at least 45 days, if you do full 6 tabs, but you get the 2 other complexes not found in other multi's

    I find for the most part this happens to me when I am not drinking enough water. Try increasing your water intake and see if it changes.

    I am definitely going to try triad sometime soon. Probably as soon as I come close to running out of the Multivitamins I have now.

    I really like MVP but also like ADAM by NOW and Orange Triad. Previous to coming here I did use GNC's Mega Man multi but from research here I found many other good multis to try.

    if your diet is good then you dont need a multi at all. Only vit D3 1000mg and vit c 500mg day. Multis have been shown to shorten you life. Google Harvard study that just came out. Same your loot for other things.

    Whatever, everything in life shortens it. Every breath I take shortens it by another second. Studies can always be skewed to their liking. It's just like people and their push for organic foods or battles against HFCS. I am not trying to start a fight but I will stick with the majority and keep using multivitamins.

    I like the good ol standard Now ADAM, but i have heard the Orange T is good too.

    I prefer whole food vitamins, not things like One-A-Day

    10 years ago the world was obsessed with low fat and high carb diets. Now the world is obsessed with low carb and moderate fat diets. In what essence has science not been changing all this time good sir?

    I would honestly ditch the GNC Mega Men's once you finish the tub and then switch to a really high quality multi. Try to get some AOR Ortho-Core. It is quite a bit more expensive but much more complete (All natural forms of vitamins, not ridiculously high dosed and full spectrum of Vitamin E plus other goodies).
    To reduce the cost, as I can't justify the high price all the time myself, just cut the dosage in half.

    Besides, like everyone said. Bright yellow just means you are peeing out excessive B-vitamins because they were dosed to high or not absorbed...

    Good Luck.
