    Multi-Vitamin VS. Multi-Vitamin


    How much of a "good thing" is too much... or not enough? There are tons of Multi-Vitamins out there, but which one is your choice? How much supplementation do you need in one? Do you go for the one with abundance like Natures Way Alive, Pana-C, Vitamin Code, Source of Life? Or do you go for the shorter ingredient list like Centrum, One a day, NS generations, Universal Daily? What is your choice for your daily stress????

    Been using orange triad for a years. Multi, joint support, etc. Haven't been sick in 3-4 years, guess it's working. One of those supplements you don't notice until u run out. 6 horse pills a day just for a multi is kind of a PIA...

    It's more expensive, but I've found I'm a bigger fan of using individual Vitamin A (mixed caretenoids), Vitamin B complex, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, and Vitamin E (mixed Tocopherols - I use Toco 8), along with ZMA or ZMK, Adaptogens, and Anti-Oxidants.

    With the multi's you don't get the mixed caretenoids of Vitamin A, usually inferior forms of the different Vitamin B's, and usually one form of Vitamin E. After looking at all of that, and realize that most of the doses of the other components of the mutli vitamin are underdosed they really come off as garbage.

    Taking them seperately allows for whatever dosing YOU choose, and more flexible dosing throughout the day. Then throwing in the adaptogens of your choice, and your dose, you get MUCH more benefit.

    Having said that it's a more expensive option, but after realizing that most other supps are garbage, you're not really spending more a month if you go with your staples, and maybe a "toy to play with" here and there.

    Just my opinion though.

    AOR does make a great multi. I heard they discontinued it though?? Maybe I'm thinking of someone else. But I know a while back I wanted to give it a try and had a hard time finding it. Maybe I'm wrong though...

    I took *** men's sport for a couple years. I heard from many sources that the ingredients were poor quality. Finally just bought Orange Triad this week. 6 pills/day is no problem. I take way more than that with fish oil, super cissus, alpha t2, etc

    I still have a bout 20 packs of The Pak! Man thats like what? 10 pills? 3 of them are big as hell. Swallow em all up in one big gulp. Sometimes they'd hurt on the way down and get snagged by the epiglottis... ouch lol

    Glad I don't take those anymore! First piss after ingesting those was like Mountain Dew leaving my body.

    Vitamin A
    Vitamin B Complex
    Vitamin C
    Vitamin D3
    Vitamin E (Toco 8)
    ZMA or ZMK
    Selenium (not if I'm taking ZMK)
    Astaxanthin
    Grape Seed Extract
    Green Tea Extract
    Circumin
    Ubiquinol
    Na-R-ALA
    Suma Root
    Greens Powder or a Reds powder (Vitaberry by Primordial Performance is one of my favorites, tough to find the cash to buy it though. Using Controlled Labs greens how, and while I like the ingredient profile the spearmint flavor makes me want to gag. Who the hell likes drinking that? Maybe spearmint's just not for me. Why not use a lemon or orange flavor? I digress. Unfortunately I still have a 2nd bottle to use)


    My base "vitamin" stack. Is it expensive? Yeah. But honestly, IMO, it will work out 10x better for you than almost any other supplements you'd waste money on.

    Look into adding a vitamin E and mineral complex if possible. I too drop the "A" in ACES, but when I do my monthly diet analysis, I consistently fall short in vitamin E and a couple minerals. Your diet is obviously likely different, but it's still worth checking out.

    For a cover all basis multi that is inexpensive and not overdone, NOW ADAM gets my vote.

    I use Garden of Life "Vitamin Code Men". It is pricey but I can tell you that the natural ingredients in there are much more easily absorbed by the body instead of synthetics and I had a skin problem that went away within 3 months of using it. I don't think I will ever go back to anything else.
    As for my joints, a quality fish oil with do the trick with regular use. I've switched to Krill Oil.
