    Are these any good? I'm thinking of starting to take these vitamins. I'm not fighting or building my body, was just wondering if these will do me any good and what better forum to ask than the Dieting/Supplement subsection?

    Centrum is the first multi vitamin that ever made me queasy after taking them. I wouldn't recommend them as there are better multi's out there, but if you stomach can handle them, it's better than nothing.

    If you want something cheap take GNC Mega Men or something (just don't get the Sport version).

    Heh.

    I remember hearing, but never verified, they use a lot of crap for binding etc.

    There's much better out there (check the FAQ). Ya, they're a bit more, but I'd rather spend 80 cents a day on something great than 50 cents a day on some crap.

    Like IAN said. I wouldnt spend any money at all on them. Rather just eat right or get another Multi. Centrum and One a Day are shit.

    Check out Orange Triad at Bodybuilding.com. I heard good things about them so I ordered some. Not expensive either, about $.66 p/day.

    There's MUCH better stuff out there. Look for something in a gelcap. It'll absorb much better.

    On a side note, I've used both Now adam and ON multi


    Both seemed ok (hard to judge)

    To the TS:
    From the FAQ

    That's not to say those are the only good ones, but it's a start. Pick one from whole food sources and you should be ok.

    3) GNC Ultra Mega Green - Most Americans just do not get enough greens. Plain and simple. This is another Vitamin with whole food nutrients in it. But the drawback is these things are GIGANTIC. Not Horse pills, Elephant pills. And suggested use is 3 times per day (to supplement veggies with your meal), but I think this is a bit of overkill. 2 per day in the morning should do.

    Update:
    They only recommended two a day now and they are huge but Elephant is an exageration.

    I use whole food vitamins and feel great after using them. When I switched to a synthetic brand I could really feel the difference...

    Because with the sport you're basically paying extra for a small amount of amino acids.

    as in understand it they include something like 1g of bcaa, which will have no effect, but charge you mucho denara for the inclusion
