    Is it ok to introduce creatine and agmatine or beta analine yet?
    One must never use beta ANALine, that just doesn't sound like a good idea

    And yes i'd say you're in the clear to add those.

    Haha Whoops

    I still will wait another 2 weeks to add a test booster.

    Ill have a break every few months off agmatine etc

    Why risk it? Cycle...

    Yup. Even hyper/hypo caloric diets need to be cycled you cant be in one or the other all the time. So in some way you can say cycle your food.

    It's important to keep a balance between omega 3 and 6's. The reason for all the talk on fish oil and omega 3's is because todays horribly manufactured foods may have a decent concentration of omega 6 but very little omega 3.

    I don't even take multi vitamins so I think I am ok with that.

    Hardly any of it actually absorbs in your body but there are people out there that definitely don't cycle those kinds of things

    Weeeelll actually, thats not quite true. While the full dose of the vitamin may not enter the sytem, Multivitamins with high dosages (like Orange Triad for example) compensate for the lack of absorption by overcompensating the dosages of each vitamin. Your body has capacity to absorb enough of it for it to make a difference.

    And if you pee changes colour after intake this can be attributed to your body absorbing a vitamin in excess rather than being indicitive of pee'ing out the whole lot which is a common misconception.

    Typically I only supplement with D3 in winter and now with vitamin K2.

  7. ^ Great point. Considering iron has a 10% absorbance rate. Just because it's been consumed doesn't mean your taking all of it in. Of course, there's always instances where someone has difficulty with absorbance of a given micronutrient (like me and iron).

    Obviously a proper diet will provide all the necessary vitamins and minerals in a more bioavailable form. Choosing certain foods can compensate for any lacking recommended dosages. Also how those foods are prepared will influence bioavailability and concentration. In addition, eating more high quality meats/veggies will impact these numbers as well. Often times a multivitamin is designed to make up for what people lack in their diet.

    I am kinda cycling my pre workouts and all that every week so to speak

    4 days:
    Monday-Thursday: gym

    3 days:
    Friday-Sunday: no gym and no supps like creatine etc

  11. Learn something new every day, I had no idea some of this stuff had to be cycled. So my supplements of choice are Ubiquinol, Fish Oil, Multi(low dose one), Selenium, B complex, Vit E, Turmeric, Vit C, Vit D, Astaxanthin and Magnesium(and Zinc but not as often). I also use a preworkout 4 days a week(Craze) and supplement with protein when needed(i.e. time ect.) and BCAA's. So all this should be cycled(minus the protein of course)? I have been doing this for about 10 months with no break, maybe its time for one.

    The only problem is that some vitamins have different forms (Vitamin D2-d3 etc.), then vitamin K which has many other forms so knowing if you have enough is more complicated than just guesswork. I'm not saying a multi-v is good, but def should use your food data to check what vitamins/ minerlals could be lacking;

    meat and eggs hold small quantities of K2 (mk-4) which has shown to boost testosterone in rats and conversely lower test levels when deficient.
    While it has no human studies that i'm aware of, anything with the potential to boost test is, well interesting to me.

    Vitamin D is fast becoming one of the most researched vitamins (I even bought a book on it; a whole book!!!) as it has so many benefits. If supplementing i'd suggest D3

    Makes sense. If you're someone with frequent sun exposure vitamin D3 may not be necessary. It's more important for those of us who spend our days working inside and don't get enough daily sunlight.

  22. If you wear alot of sunblock (as I do living in NZ with a huge hole in the OZONE) then it can block Vitamin D absorption quite dramatically. So bear this in mind.

    True. I live in NYC where its <10 fareinheit as of late. Plus I sleep during the day. Vitamin D3 is a must. Ive been doing 3,000mg daily. What's your suggestion?

    you mean ug

    If you want a comparison; australia just hit record high temps of around 109.4 fareinheit, we normally hit around 77 in summer but given the high risk of sunburn, sunblock is a must for me to avoid melanoma so even in the summer I supplement with around 1000ug (Vitamin d3 is expensive here + prescription required for supplements containing more than 25 micrograms); i managed to find some with 100ug so I just take 10.

    you mean, IU

    he is in US not NZ

    the amount you espouse would be = to 40000IU, no?

    if i am not mistaken, that amount has peer-reviewed studies that show toxicity potential

  26. I use 5,000IU of D3 in the cold weather months. Some people may use 10,000IU or more for a short time if their levels have proven to be very low (according to their doctor), then 3,000IU to 5,000IU to maintain.

    I also have read 40,000IU to be potentially toxic.

    why would you?

    vary the dosage maybe (from winter to summer, etc) but that's about it, no need to cycle off
