Iam looking for a supplement that i cant take through out the wrestling season that will help with my preformance and stamina?
Ruick said:also interested, maybe in some specific vitamin supplements that will give me extra energy for wrestling? nothing dangerous though..
Wolverine said:I tried GNC's Mega Men Sport (it has to say Sport). I have tried Centrum, the regular Mega Men and other vitamins. The only one that I felt a difference with is Mega Men Sport. Best part about it is that every vitamin in it is natural, and not synthetic.
Try it out and see how you feel.
Madmick said:How are the vitamins not synthetic?
supersudo said:multi-vitamin? lol
greens powders are good too.. like the one randy couture uses.. but his brand is too expensive.. Garden of Life Perfect Food is the best.. i ordered it in pill form recently.. :wink:
Wolverine said:For example, Vitamin E. A lot of vitamin companies will use the synthetic form of Vitamin E which is dl-alpha-tocopherol. The natural version is alpha-tocopherol. Companies will use the synthetic version to cut cost, but the natural form has more benefits.
Madmick said:Oh, vitamin extracts. I misunderstood you.
Actually, I think there are only a few vitamins where that matters. For most, the synthetic and natural versions are identical: sharing all properties.
supersudo said:while technically that true.. the way ur body treats it is different (absorbs it differently).. while it has the same isomers, they're arranged differently so ur body treats them differently.. (example would be the spelling of "STAR".. and "RATS")
i also read that synthetic Beta-Carotene is actually bad for u, and increases chances of lung cancer in smokers...
o and wolverine.. d-alpha-tocopherol is the natural vitamin E.. d1 or dl-alpha tocopherol is the synthetic...
Madmick said:No, I think that's true only a for a rare few. Terumo spoke on this. He said the bulk of vitamins and minerals- natural and synthetic- are identical in every way that matters.
