Vitamins

So I bought myself a bottle of Centrum chewable multipurpose vitamins. Anyone else taking these? I heard it's really good for you and boosts your immune system. I dont really believe in it but am willing to try.

also any thoughts on fish oil? What does it actually do?

Centrum is good. I also recommend taking Salmon Oil because as it contains omega 3.

I take source naturals for men. A great vitamin, far superior to Centrum.

I didn't feel like paying the extra bucks this past time so I'm using a vegeterian vitamin and i'm really impressed with it so far. I'll have to get back to you with the name.

I take the Costco version with is supposed to be the same. I also combine my multi-vitamin with a Fish Oil capsule, a Zinc pill and a Vitamin C chewable. Since I began taking my vitamins I haven't been sick (even when others around me have).

I like the One Source active. Bought them at WalWorld. They contain CoQ-10, Lycopene and Lutein which Centrum does not..I don't think.

Some multis put so much of the B vitamins it is crazy. Too much is not a good thing with certain B's.

Don't skimp on fish oil if you are going to take it. The cheap priced versions are crap and make you smell like a tin of sardines. I prefer Marine Omega softgels. NKO krill oil from Antarctica. No stank.

Also two slow release aspirin.


Fish oil supports cardiovascular, brain, immune, joint and skin health. To answer your question.

What is a good multi-vitamin that you can just get at your supermarket? Any advice?

I ordered Controlled Labs Orange Triad today.

I'm not going to take the insane amount of pills they recommend, but will be taking it.

Thirteen reasons to use fish oils to get lean
October 26, 2006
By Charles Poliquin and Dr. Mark Houston M.D.
This is an excerpt from coach Poliquin's and Dr. Houston's upcoming book on fat loss.

Serious trainers want to find a supplement that will give them an edge. For those of us interested in positively and optimally altering body composition and maximizing our training efforts, fish oils offer thirteen possible advantages:

1. Cell membrane health: Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), insure that cell membranes remain healthy. The membranes are flexible and contain larger numbers of insulin receptors that are more receptive and responsive to circulating insulin. This results in decreased fat storage in the adipocytes (fat cells)

2. Fish oils turn on the lipolytic genes (fat burning genes)

3. Fish oils turn off the lipogenic genes (fat storage genes),

4. Fish oils diminish C-reactive proteins, a newly identified risk factor associated with various inflammatory diseases, including atherosclerosis, angina, coronary heart disease, heart attack, stroke, congestive heart failure and diabetes. The D.H.A. fraction of the fish oil seems to be one most responsible for that protective effect. DHA also has best ability to reduce blood pressure.

5. Increase utilization of fat stores from the adipocytes.

6. Preferential utilization for energy production once stored in the Adipocytes.

7. Reduced inflammation from physical training.

8. Pain management from the reduced inflammation.

9. EPA regulates blood supply to the brain that is essential in maintaining focus in weight training sessions. DHA is important in brain membranes, memory and cognitive function.

10. Fish oils increase serotonin levels (the happy neurotransmitter). Therefore, fish oils will decrease incidence of depression, anxiety, panic attack and reduce carbohydrate cravings.

11. Fish oils will improve your cardio-vascular risk profile by lowering VLDL, triglycerides, homocysteine, fibrinogen and increasing HDL levels. Combining fish oils with plant sterols will improve lipid levels even more than either alone.

12. Fish oils can also decrease blood pressure by several mechanisms. These include increases in the vasodilatory compound, nitric oxide, reducing vascular inflammation, blocking the constrictive elements in the vascular wall such as the calcium channels reducing blood viscosity, and inhibiting a blood vessel constrictor (thromboxane). Lipoprotein (a) is another CVD predictor that can be lowered by fish oils (a 19% reduction was seen with natural, stable fish oils and just 4% with a highly purified fish oil).

13. Fish oils are a great stress fighter. Supplementation with n-3 fatty acids inhibits the adrenal activation of steroids, aldosterone, epinephrine and norepinephrine (catecholamines) elicited by a mental stress, apparently through effects exerted at the level of the central nervous system. Therefore, for the same amount of stress, one will produce fewer stress hormones if consuming fish oils on a regular basis. Any of these reasons make the case for fish oils in your supplementary diet. Take some today!

I'm actually really fond of taking the animal pak I like using it with my supplements.
But yes the Vitamin B6 in it makes your Pee like neon Yellow like gatorade

Once you get used to it the pills are not so bad. I can take all 11 at once now
