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?

.
How many food supplements do you take?
You may choose only one
I never take any, out of principle
I never take any, basically
At some times (flu, season) I take em
I take a supplement each day
I take multiple supplements each dat
Several a day, I believe in Life Extension/Antioxidants/Optimization etc.

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.

yeah, but flax oil is mostly short-chain omega-3's, which are inferior to the long chain omega 3s that fish oil offers.


as for me, i don't take any vitamin supplements or anything. i believe they are unhealthy and should be gotten from whole foods instead. fractionated, synthetic vitamins... no thank you. not even whole-food vitamins, still too fractionated.

i do take a little cod liver oil sometimes though.

Why?  They're extracted/formulated nutrients, the same way that the nutrients liberated by your digestive tract from the food you eat are extracted nutrients.

They're certainly not a replacement for good diet, but they can help patch up the deficiencies in a less than ideal diet.

I just take the store brand mens one a day vitamans + prostate health type.  Plus I eat healthy for the most part, and have finally been able to really cut back on both my meat consumption and even more so my red meat consumption.  A meal used to not be complete without meat, both lunch and dinner.  Now i normally eat meat only once a day, and try to make it chicken/fish more frequently than beef.

I take:

Cod Liver Oil, 5-htp, and a Calcium/Magnesium/Zinc supplement.

Food is definitely better but it's good to make sure you have some you think you might be missing. And fish is out of my price range right now.

There's certainly lots of information about it.. go look for yourself.  I'll sum up some main points.

The vitamins are not 100% compatible with your digestive system, and get shat out just as they went in.

There is no measurable way to tell if taking a vitamin c pill yesterday did me any good today.

There may be unintended consequences.

Also, i'm healthy as is, and don't need to spend money on placebo pills to be happy with myself.

I take no vitamins, eat fatty foods, assloads of bacon, 2 pots
of coffee a day, probably 4 eggs every morning, there's nothing
more satisfying than licking the bacon grease off the plate, in
fact this morning it was country ham and 6 pieces of bacon...
doesnt get any healther that what I eat

I'm healthy as a horse, I dont get sick, I've been to a doctor 3
times in 30 years, once because I broke my ankle and 2 times
because I was made to go, and one of those times they did a
complete blood workup and found my calcium was just a little low
now lets add 30 years of smoking into that equation... no cancer

did I mention I never get sick

Doctors are starting to realize that Multivitamins don't really work. They SHOULD work, but for some reason they don't, perhaps because they're so refined etc.

the best way to get vitamins has always been to eat fruits, vegetables, and a balanced diet.

eat your beans;)

I take on the order of thirty to forty multivitamins in the morning and in the evening.

Mostly they are antioxidants and basic vitamins (C, fish oil, etc), and the other half are nootropics such as huperzine-A, alpha GPC, and Piracetam.  Epicor is also a great immune system booster.

I rarely, if ever, get sick and when I do the cold or flu lasts for only a couple days.

You made me think of something.....
Of the people that take supplements every day, how often do you get sick/ill?
You may choose only one
Virtually never. I haven't had so much as a cold in 10+ years.
Vary rarely. I come down with a cold or the flu once in a while, but for the most part I stay healthy
About average, I get sick a couple times a year or so.
I'm a veritable disease bag
I'm typing this from my death bed
Of those who never take supplements, how often do you get sick/ill?

Virtually never. I haven't had so much as a cold in 10+ years.

Yeah, although I agree that plenty of people might live long, healthy lives without ever taking a single supplement, I'd rather be safe than sorry.  :shrug:

My wife is a holistic nutritionist, she has taught me so much about what we put in our bodies.

I try to get all my vitamins from food sources...fruits, vegetables, etc.

Your body can absorb the vitamins in fruits/veggies better than the vitamins in pills, rocket science eh.

I take supplements occasionally when my allergies bother me, but when I do I only take herbs or mushroom pills.  Otherwise, on a daily basis I don't take anything.

I agree with the consensus that vitamins and most supplements are counterproductive, and new studies suggest they do more harm than good, as a multivitamin is extremely taxing on your liver and kidneys, etc.

I just try to eat seasonal whole foods the majority of the time and hope that I'm getting a balanced diet.  I don't worry about it too much, though.  I eat what feels right.

Yeah, although I agree that plenty of people might live long, healthy lives without ever taking a single supplement, I'd rather be safe than sorry.  :shrug:





but how exactly do you know you're being safe? My great
grandmother grew up on the chisholm trail, 2 things she wouldnt
ear were beef because she's seen so many slaughterd as a kid, it
just turned her against it and fish because of a bad can of
sardines, she ate foods that she grew or hunted for, kept a cow
for milk, for breakfast and lunch she'd eat bacon and biscuits
and she'd pour the grease from the bacon on the biscuit, through
the warmer months she'd have eggs from her chickens, she also
dipped snuff, tobacco is a big part of indian life, we may be
genetically predisposed not to have the ill effects that most
people derive from tobacco


anyway she lived to be 93 years old, she's one that died pretty
young, her sisters lived to be 99 and 102, Mitt took up smoking
and drinking because her husband wanted someone that would enjoy
a beer and a smoke, he lived to 98, and her to 99, my
grandmother is 87, she has fought cancer due to occupational
hazards for about 40 years, she also eats pretty unhealthy by
todays standards... really now, what's safe and what's not

Sounds like you've got great genes, then!  :thumbup:

But to use such an example to advocate that tobacco is healthy for everyone else, or that consuming massive amounts of grease will not increase your chances of getting heart disease for everyone else, seems like faulty logic.

whoa now big fella, where did I say that eating all this crap or
smoking is healthy or advocate the use of this stuff, I simply
stated that I eat or do what I want and could care less what the
doctors claim, seriously, we all gotta die of something, I'm
just trying to find out what will eventually kill me

faulty logic is placing too much faith in hokey pills and
supplements just because some doctor on TV told you too

Agreed.  I figure even if the alternative supplements I take do nothing for me, the power of the placebo effect will keep me healthy.  :grin:

And quacks?  There is a difference between advocating homeopathy and other quack medicine, and advocating essential nutrients and vitamins based on independently run studies.  I don't trust my medicine on the word of some doctor; I trust it on reading the outcomes of scientific tests and double-blind controlled conditions.  If anything, that's the best anyone can hope to go on.

when I said Quacks I was talking about the Jackasses with PhDs
and MD and all those other initials after their names...
more western doctors are looking at alternative/eastern medicine

modern medicine = advanced quackery


about those studies, even the independent studies can be made to
reflect something that isnt accurate, there's a lot of fraud and
deception in science today, it's difficult to know the truth and
in my opinion, it's better to discount most of it

amen brudda.
I'll trust the crazy healthy people over some guy who gets kickbacks from companies to say certain things.
And crazy healthy people say - get all your nutrients from whole foods, eat a balanced diet.
Not saying supplements are evil or anything, just shouldn't rely on them, like at all.. imo.

Well, like you said.. if you're lacking vitamin C eat a pepper, lacking iron eat some greens or meat.

I just know that I LOVE the taste of sushi, and it makes me feel damn good.
I'm lacking my omega 3s and protein.. sushi time.

balanced diet 1lb of bacon in one hand and 1lb of eggs in the other

I mentioned this topic to my mother and there was apparently an
interview with some doctor saying that most of these supplements
dont even dissolve in your stomach, you can eat the pills at 6am
and at 4pm take an xray and still see the pill, it's all about
the money

Well that's why you generally piss neon green after taking multivitamins.. you are pissing almost all of it out.. your body can't absorb it that fast.
You need a "buffer period" where you are taking multivitamins every day, for your body to start absorbing some of those nutrients..
Seems like a waste to me, when you can easily just get all those vitamins... straight from the food you eat.. and they are instantly available to your body.
You don't need to eat sushi every day, for 3 weeks.. in order to reap the benefits, for example.
As far as I know, B vitamins take the longest to build up in the body.. and getting that from natural sources such as sweet potatoes is far superior to supplementing it.

Bear in mind there are also plenty of incentives for pharmaceutical companies to try to discount the health benefits and/or efficacy of alternative supplements and vitamins--why have people be healthy taking Vitamin C when you can purchase some Tylenol instead?

lets suppose for a minute the BigName Pharmaceuticals owns
LittleGuy Vitamin Company through some proxy corporation, why
not produce both a multi vitamin that either does nothing or
actually causes some ailment, wouldnt they then get the benefit
of selling you both these products all the while they bash their
own subsidiary by claiming that it doesnt prevent anything but
their drug cures what ever ails you, and even it does nothing of
benefit, in some cases may be worse than the affliction it's
supposed to treat... it's a snake oil game

here's some examples of the BigName drugs
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/23868978/
http://www.businessweek.com/magazine/content/08_04/b4068052092994.htm

lets look at the other end of the spectrum
http://abcnews.go.com/Health/Stossel/story?id=4636224&page=1
http://www.drnatura.com/

all of these are examples of scams perpetrated on the consumer,
one by the big corporations and the others supposedly from small
companies, the Dr.Natura colon cleanse crap actually causes the
problem it's supposedly ridding you of, the Kinoki shit is just
a scam as are the cholesterol drugs

Because you can't patent a plant or an herb.

Are you claiming that no vitamin or supplement is beneficial in any way?

As far as I'm aware, drug companies cannot patent commonly used plants that are usually far more effective than over-the-counter drugs.

the jury is still out on the effectiveness and lets face it, if a
company really wants to, they can do about anything, look at the
organic scam in addition to patents of food crops, it only takes
a little modification to get the patent, it takes nothing more
than a little pollen from the patented stuff getting to the
flowers of the wild stuff and the ofspring showing that modified
DNA for the patent to apply... seriously, read up, especially
about lawsuits

And let's not forget that the FDA made it illegal so no vegetable or raw food or herb can claim to have ANY health benefits -
this is why you won't see claims on say, a bag of broccoli - "BROCCOLI IS GOOD FOR THE HEART AND FIGHTS CANCER!" (It does), but this is against the law.
You couldn't even advertise an orange  saying like.... ORANGES ARE THE CURE FOR SCURVY!

Yet they can take some processed crap, throw it into a bottle and claim basically whatever they want.

I think supplements can have their place once in a while.. but let's not kid ourselves here..  almost anything in its whole, natural form is going to be better than something that has been freeze-dried, processed, concentrated, and had whatever other alterations done to it... with very few exceptions. It is always better to get everything from your diet and not rely on popping a pill in order to ensure you are getting a "well balanced diet and all your vitamins".
It's the same thing with eating like white bread that has been enriched with vitamins. It's absolutely NO replacement for whole grains.
Anything that has been stripped of its original nature in whole form is going to be of lesser quality.

Do you have a source for this? I searched quickly but couldn't find anything.

If they actually ruled that way, it is absolutely crazy. I wouldn't out it past them, though.

I only did a really quick search and I found this - http://www.naturalnews.com/024567.html
There's a lot of info out there.. but it's pretty well established.
The pharmaceutical companies can claim almost whatever they want about their product.
But if some health food place makes a claim about a natural product, they can get sued into the ground and put out of business, completely shut down.. it's been known to happen many times,

Just take a trip into the grocery store. Look at the produce section. Notice any amazing health claims? Nope. But that's probably the healthiest part of the store.
Then go into the vitamin isle..

Wow talk about timing, I just finished my bottle of Multi-Vitamin this morning. I think I might also get some fish-oil, as I rarely get to eat fish.

What do you all think is the best multi-vitamin? I usually get Centrum.

In fact, I have lived off sushi and miso soup before, for about 5 months.. probably the healthiest I've ever felt in my life.

I like pris' style.

Eating gobs of fatty, saturated fat ridden blocks of cholesterol freaks people out but makes me feel good and alive. At my best I never got sick.

Though bacon kind of sucks IMO. I like to buy "side pork" which is uncured bacon and season it myself. The bacon they usually sell is far to salty and odd to be enjoyable.

I'm just here to say I love bacon ....and that eating things with love and passion is far more healthy than eating them with feelings of guilt and disgust for oneself.  No matter what you eat, even if they're pills, love your food and it'll love you back.

Personally I love them but I stopped eating them, because I found out they sell wheat cakes in the same shape which means they probably use the same pan. :frown:

i'm not much in favor of taking single vitamin or mineral supplements as they don't happen to be absorbed well by the body when taken in isolation; most will only be flushed out.

nutrients work in teams and are best taken in combinations. nature has provided us with a vast supply of various nutrient pools all found in unrefined whole foods.

i don't oppose synthetic nutrient supplements, but i do prefer and would always encourage going straight to the source, namely foods. :earth:

Just out of curiosity, how intolerant do you think you are?  Assuming the equipment was washed properly after its use, do you think you'd run into an issue?  I know peanut allergies can be that severe, but do you find yourself that sensitive?  I guess better safe than sorry, but I was curious what you had to say on the issue..also as it implies to other things you are intolerant to.

I don't really know. Sometimes after eating an unsafe object I get sick then find out later it was made on shared equipment.

But during the winter vacation for some reason I kept eating non safe food and certain things didn't bother me much.

I'd rather be safe than sorry. 1ppm or less can still damage your villi, and if my villi are being damaged (which would be celiac over gluten intolerance) then I want no part of it.

It seems like a lot of it is trial and error.  Also, maybe some things might sit with you okay one day and bother you the next.  Better safe indeed.  Save the villis!

centrum silver, b complex 50, sometimes twice a day, but at least once, lots of c - 1 to 2 g, zinc, e, rotate chromium about every 2 or 3 days, fish oil, echinacea
I used to add ginko, but it got expensive, always a couple of cups of green tea, sometimes red, black or orange pekoe is still good for tanins

PS, what the hell is that a picture of?

Though bacon kind of sucks IMO. I like to buy "side pork" which is uncured bacon and season it myself. The bacon they usually sell is far to salty and odd to be enjoyable.




I get a lot of bacon from my neighbor, he raises the pigs himself,
does all his own butchering, smokes it or cures it in what ever
manor and it's the best bacon I've ever had, luckily the local
grocery store does the same, though not quite as well and the bacon
is super thick

You suck. I would die for some freshly smoked bacon. Well not really, but you get the idea.

I encourage you all to take green tea supplements (Not liquid kind, take the pills). They boost your metabolism, and = 10 cups of tea! They are healthy as fuck and are overall a win

Why hasn't anybody mentioned HEMP seed. It has alot of omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. I dont know how it compares to fish oil or other sources of omegas like soy or flax

flax seed contains more omega-3, corn and soy contain more
omega-6,  and I'm sure if someone wised to look they could find
many seeds that contain more of both in a single seed in addition
tot he super omegas and omega 9
