Looking at my daily does of tablets and vitamins - was wondering if anyone else here takes any?
This is what take daily and seems to make me feel the best - though over the years, think the benefits might be not as noticeable as when I first started taking them.
Glucosamine Chondroitin for my knees ( have worn out the cartilage and arthritis)
Fish Oil (I don't eat any anything form the ocean, and for my knees)
Multi Vitamin - all the good stuff my bad diet misses out on
Magnesium - to stop cramps - and apparently improves my brain (no strong evidence yet ........ )
Same as you minus the Chondroitin and Magnesium. I am trying to make up for 50 years of poor eating habits and my more recent attack on my knees with excesive running. No idea if any of it helps but it should ;-)
One magnesium tablet per day to stop/prevent/reduce cramp.
I suspect it's a bit like Baron's story and the vitamin C though, if I stop talking it I probably won't cramp, but do I take the risk?
I drink so much FUIC the caffiene rejects artificial pick me ups.
Umm Clive FUCI was NO caffiene in it at ALL
iced coffer flavour = no caffiene
bugger all tablets for me. just daily fruit / vegs but I / we all get natural source of Vitamin D from the sun rays over the summer months
Like RD6 - NONE. Unless you have an health issue then I reckon if you eat correctly you shouldn't need any vitamin tablets. Lots of fruit and vegetables etc, etc and Ice Cream, of course ! Does me OK. Oh and a teaspoon of honey EVERY day.
That's what I thought..until I had a blood test and found my vitamin D levels were very low. My wife's levels are also low and we've both had to have a vitamin D boost. Were both in our early to mid 50's.
Part of the reason could be the success of the slip slop and slap skin cancer campaign. Weve tamed one health issue only to create another.
What supplement stores do people use to buy their supplements?
stuff multivitamins - have a daily BEER it contains significant amounts of magnesium, selenium, potassium, phosphorus, biotin, and is chock full of B vitamins.
I studied nutrition I am not a fountain of knowledge like DR but your right supplements are much of a muchness depending on what you take and why.
Most supplements are lost as they are water soluble. My diet has improved greatly so I should not need to take them but I do.
Vit C in winter
Fish oils for back and brain function
and a multi vit.
Not found a good supplier over here as they are so expensive so another reason not buy them!
+1 for Beer
Home brewed if possible, even better because it still has the live yeast in it. Keeps you regular too!
I take supplements, 'Beta Alanine' and 'D'- Aspartic Acid, 3 grams of each, Beta Alanine before a ride/daily and D-Aspartic acid after a ride or just before bed daily.
