Should one take vitamins/supplements to help with energy and what not? And if so, what kind should be taken?

when you do intense workout many times a week you need to take additional vitamins besides eating healthy of course.

i take daily multi vitamin and extra 500 mg vit C

i checked several training forums including body building and they all said the same thing, you need to up your vitamins and especially C because of the intense blow your body gets every training. Eating more fruit will not be enough, you need to take vit pills

cheers

the most important if you buy supps are omega 3 oils like fish oil pills, multi vitamin, vitamin C, B complex vitamin, amino acids powders, whey protien powders.

those are the staples for me the important stuff in my opinion.

I read an article once that said you should take a multi-vitamin that is fiber based. Anyone know how to tell or where to locate a fiber base multi-vitamin?

The best multi-vitamin in the world is....ANIMAL PAK......I am 100% positive....

These little fu#@ers have more antioxidants than a 3 oz glass of wheat grass in each serving.....they will give you constant and sustained energy throughout the day....the amino blend is also quite ridiculous.....

Please, I dare any person to prove me wrong....

Go to www.discountanabolics.com and check out animal pak....they are normally like $36 for 44 paks....on this site you can get them for like $20....

Take Goji Juice. It honestly is the best type of vitamin that you can take.

Is it safe to take extra Vitamin C and B if you already take Multivitamins that have these things in them?

dude.....why are you reading posts from march????

yes its safe to take a little extra v-C and B if you are training hard....but remember this, taking C or B alone will not help the body if you arent eating properly or taking a vitamin as well.......The body will not absorb say B-12 by without having adequate amounts of vitamin C or A.....If the body is missing vitamin A or C it cannot process other vitamins since it is deficient.....thats why you need to take a multi as well.....

I recommend starting with a good lean protien, multi vitamin and omega 3 for starter's...

i also use joint soother's and if i had the cash, i'd buy the vitamin pack's. i heard they work well. (GNC brand)

Usually have a fry-up before a fight, I don't mess with supplements, they will impair ur performance. Try to eat heavily fried foods before training or matches to increase your metabolism.

Eating more fruit and veg will do the trick and will alsdo help you blow torch the bodyfat off. Go for 70% greens and the rest seafood, just like a Premiership footballer.

if you insist on vits, ZMA works.
