What multivitamins do you take?

  1. What multivitamins do you take?


    I'm looking to buy some good ones. Nothing incredibly expensive though.

    I'm not really sure what to look for, other than Vit C, E, Bs, Folic acid, and other antioxidants. I'm a little worried that some of them might have too much of certain vitamins though. Like, why do I need 1600% of the DV of anything?

    For instance, I noticed Opti-Men by Optimum Nutrition. The only reason I looked is because I like some of their other products (who doesn't like their protein).

    What is generally recommended?


  2. never been one to compare multis. as long as its from a reputable company with decent price, i pick it up. have used gnc's (yup), vitaminshoppe's, kirkland signature (costco), optimum, along with others.
    Sage

  3. Personally, I go for the Walmart generic multi. Never noticed a diference.

    Yeah, I'm a cheapass.

  4. I just use centrum performace , or mega man

  5. I'd go with the mega man over centrum...if you read the other ingredients you'll see all the questionable fillers they put in centrum.

  6. centrum brand is crap. Go for Costco/kirkland or Sam's cuz they are made by Leiner which is the largest and reputable vitamin manufacturer. the are the only ones to voluntarily manufacture their calcium with no lead trace impurities. i buy almost all my vitamin/antioxidant's from them-multi,c,e,calcium citrate, grape seed, ginkgo/vinco, b-complex, saw palmento, soy isoflavone, and milk thistle. Unfortunately, they don't carry lipoic acid, nac, green tea, alcar, etc..... yet.

  7. Opti-men here. I like it. You can deinetely tell that it is time released because I take mine at 7:30 in the morning and I am still pissing florescent color at 2 or 3 that afternoon. Plus it has so much more than a multi-vit too.

  8. ast 32x

    same here

  10. mega man.....why?.....cuz i'm mega.

  11. Opti-Men...

  12. Super Hy-Vites, they're more potent than most B-Complexes and they're time-released

  13. GNC Solotron. But I only buy them if they're on the super clearance rack when they're close to the expiration date. In fact, if and when I buy anything from GNC, it usually comes from that rack.

  14. I prefer a multivitamin that's in a capsule (i.e. you know it's going to be digested. I've heard of sewers being cleared and loads of undigested multivits being the most common solid substrate) and without iron (you really shouldn't be supplementing with iron if you're a male, particularly a male with a diet already high in iron).

    The best I've been able to find has been Twin Labs Daily One Caps. They've got a nice dose of the B-vitamins and cover all the basics. Not that expensive, either.

  15. ON Opti-Men

  16. GNC Mega Men and NOW Adam multi-vit.

    That's an old wive's tale...The hcl produced in the stomach can easily dissolve a tablet.

    Why?

    Healthy males do not need to iron supplement as foods offer all we need. Daily use of vitamins w/iron will build up iron toxicity after years. personally, i'm switching to Now ADAM for that reason alone. kirkland will never come out with an iron free version. females who's at the age of mentruating need iron supplementation due to blood/iron loss during mentruation.

    Been using this one for a month now. My piss glows in the dark, over all a very good deal. One problem, the pills are roughly the size of an eighteen wheeler, and you take two daily instead of one. I've always had a problem swallowing large pills and tablets, so I have to chew them a bit, and man do they taste horrid.

  22. I like Ultimate Nutrition's "Super Complete". They recommend taking 9 caps/day (3, 3, 3), but I have been taking 6 (2,2,2) and rarely get sick. I also take extra C, Selenium, dry E, and zinc for good measure.

    Gumbo

  23. i myself, have taken megamen,centrum,NOW adam, and twinlabs daily. I recommend this to most people, for the money, there is no better vitamin then twinlab. Their profile is pretty good, can get without iron and keeps me pissing nasty smelling neon piss all day long.

    My experence with ADAM by now is not good. I took it one day , like usual in the morning and one day on a late lunch i choked on a nacho, so i went to the bathroom and put my finger down my throat and got it up, along with a almost brand new NOW adam vitamin, and my piss was normal when taking it. I think it just sat in my stomach.

    Never had a problem with the ADAM, but then I give them a chew before swallowing. The Twinlab one looks great at that price. I like ONE a day too, as opposed to two.

    I've seen studies that have proven not all vitamins are dissolved. http://www.pregnancy.org/article.php?sid=1638 In the 4th paragraph from the top it tells you how to test a vitamin. I myself use chewable vitamins so I don't have to worry about it. I really like flintstones and scooby doos'lol

  26. Costco brand, Kirkland I think?

  27. One a day active...I get them from HEB

  28. ast 32x

  29. NOW ADAM is working well for me
