What kind of food supplementation do you take? (vitamins etc)
    #9587961 - 01/11/09 08:12 AM (12 years, 9 months ago)

I myself take on a daily basis:


--Broad spectrum multivitamin/mineral (general purpose)
--Coenzyme Q10 30mg (heart/liver brain health, cellular energy requirements, antioxidant)
--Selenium 100mcg/Zinc 15mg (antioxidant, augmenting immune system & natural testosterone production)
--Magnesium 400mg (muscle relaxation, offsetting my high calcium intake)
--Vitamin C 1000mg time released (antioxidant, general wellbeing, immune system)
--Fish oil 2x 1000mg (heart, brain health, cellular health)


I feel a broad spectrum multivitamin/mineral tablet (even at a mere 100% ADI) is non-negotiable and advisable to just about anyone here. One tablet a day (taken with a meal) for four months can be had for $5, or $15 a year. As the years progress, it will do a LOT for you.


What do you take?

I take a multiple, potassium, vitamin e, fish oil 3,000mg, grape seed extract, glucosamine chondroitin, and milk thistle.  I'm all out of vitamin e and coenzyme q10 though.  Me and my dad both order them off puritanpride.com.

My doctor recommended trying some vitamin C supplements during the flu season. Not out of necessity but mostly because I never eat enough fruits in the winter.

There is always something unappealing about pulling an orange out of your lunch and having it feel as solid as a rock from the cold.

I kind of feel the same way as kimbo, I don't think it's healthy.. although I'll take a vitamin C or some type of fast releasing nutrient every once in a while if I'm severely lacking in something for a period of time.

But I don't think I could ever consistently eat vitamins or supplements.
I'd rather get everything I need from the food I eat....

yeah, my unscientific reasoning is that vitamins are too concentrated, too combined, and i don't know if they mess around to make them more bio-available or something.


i was looking at one recently and it said it had 425% of my daily b6 requirement (one of the b vitamins anyways, i forget which one).  honestly thats at least 325% too much for me.


i don't know, rather get it from food, digest it slowly.  not have all the vitamins quickly hit my system at once.

my mom deals vitamins on the side of her regular job for Usana, so i get a lot of stuff on the cheap. i take a multi, 5-htp, CO10, Nueronins (omega 3 fatty acids), and sometimes fish oil. i also have a couple ounces of powdered melatonin and caffeine that are just sitting around in my dorm but i only use them every once in a while.

in the mornin': 1 centrum plus, 1 or 2 caffeine pills
thru out the day:  a bunch more caffeine pills

lol

i used to take a LOT of supplements for energy; like royal jelly and ginseng and all that stuff.  i'd spend a fortune on it, back when i was smoking.  i dunno how i afforded it.  i dunno if it actually helped, but i remember one summer EVERY DAY i would get up at 4am, work from 5am til 130pm, then RUN to this cornfield near my school, hit the bowl a couple times, and totally drop of the face of the planet do karate and tai chi.  i'd wear these wrist and ankle weights, and had this big wooden sword, and i'd be all sweating heavy while practicing karate moves.  it was easy to stay tense all the time.  like i remember riding the elevator and flexing as hard as i could the whole time i was in the elevator at work.  and i cleaned as my job, so i would be doing like shaolin style cleaning.  i totally looked like a fucking idiot, but i had a lot of fun.  maybe i'll start taking that shit again.  iono how much of that was the ginseng tho, and how much of that was the weed/mushrooms i was eating, lol.

u guys have suggested some interesting things though - selenium and zinc to help produce testosterone?  does it work?  i'm there!  and what does melatonin do?

i gotta look this stuff up, ahahah.

A multi vitamin and flax seed oil for me. For all you people taking fish oil look at this...

Quote:

Flax Seed Oil contains omega-6 and omega-9 essential fatty acids, B vitamins, potassium, lecithin, magnesium, fiber, protein, and zinc and also provides approximately 50% more omega-3 oils than what you could get from taking fish oil, minus that horrible "fishy" after taste.
