so on to another question....
When do you guys feel its most important to take your vitamins?
I read somewhere recently that Vitamin C can also be a staple to Post Workout Nutrition... let me see if i can find the link
Taken from Post-Workout Drink - Part Two: Optional IngredientsResearch has shown that taking vitamin C post-workout reduces post-workout soreness and cortisol levels. Cortisol is a catabolic (muscle-destroying) hormone that is released during and after intense exercise. So reducing it as soon as possible after a workout is imperative.
Some good PWO info on there for newbs (myself included, considering i havent done much PWO in the past)

I have found what matters is consistancy of intake, and of course off days, you can get too much of a good thing especially fat soluble. I always take off periods for everything even if its a day or two.

The majority of studies that i have read indicate that a certain degree of free radical damage is beneficial.....espcecially in the muscle hypertrophy aspect.
The free radical induced cascade that commences from weight training aspects contribues to the anabolic process. However, if this free radical cascade is left to snowball for a prolonged period of time, those benefits can easily turn into detrimental effects that can harm your overall progress.
The key is to allow just enough time for this free radical cascade to commence and produce damage effect benefits, but halt it in its tracks before the beneficial aspect is lost. I would recommend taking them in the early evening, or just before bed on training days.
I did a write-up for our NOxidant product in our section that breaks down the process a bit better. It's actually a very interesting subject, and i continue to follow up on research in this regard.
