I take GABA, a Muli-Vitamin, Folic Acid, Fish Oil, Magnesium, B3 Niacin, and a few more every morning.. Any of you guys have one that you take that you really like? Any recommendations? I'm looking to change up or add on to my supplement routine.. Thanks
I just take a men's multivitamin.
Pills I keep on hand.
Vit. B - for low energy
Vit C +Euchanacia - for sickness
Valerian Root - for sleep
Ginko - for brain
I don't take any regularly. Just kind of use them whenever.
If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.
Does this really work? Valerian Root
Yea, but not strong at all, so don't expect it to be a replacement for Tylenol PM or anything. It won't knock you out, but it definitely winds me down. Akin to relaxing meditation or something, imo. I take it when I am stressed from work or something.

I'm going to give it a try. I goggled the differences between that and GABA and VR seemed to be more popular. Thanks
Quality multi, fish oil, tumeric, cinnamon, alpha lipoic acid, chromium, multi pro biotic, biotin, coq10, vit d. I take a lot of pills.
Can you explain a couple?
Tumeric? I am guessing digestion
I take biotin (good for encouraging hair growth), glucosamine and condroitin for joints, and cayenne pepper pills for dieting (it is a natural thermogenic. I am allergic to caffeine so I cannot take most fat burning pills). I also take a multivitamin that contains trace elements and minerals.
I take fish oil depending on how much salmon I am eating and a multi.
I keep 200mg caffeine pills for when I don't really feel like going to the gym.
Thats about it. fat burners,etc, are all BS.
Capsaicin has been shown in studies to curb appetite and, in animal studies, to increase thermogensis. Considering that I have no other options (I cannot take caffeine) I take it and it seems to help.
Are Cialis and Zoloft considered vitamin supplements?

If it curbs your appetite then it works for you. Thats really what diet pills can do and thats about it. Same with caffiene. There is no significant measured thermogenic effect in humans from capsaicin or anything else, most of the research was based on animals and/or "sponsored" by supplement companies. Seriously, I read the research on supplements. Nothing since ephedrine has really shown a measurable thermogenic effect, and the leading sports nutritionists agree. But if it curbs your appetite, then you are getting a good result from it, just be skeptical to other claims.
I know that only animal studies have been done to measure the thermogenic effect of capsaicin (I try to educate myself as well as I can on any supplement I put in my body). Unfortunately there has been a lack of human studies. I do know that it curbs my appetite and raises my body temp....so it works for me.
Yeah I take a ton everyday
Men's multi vitamin
2500 mg of B12 twice a day
Occasional Glucosamine and Chondroitin
Pro Biotic (Align or Tru Biotic)
I had been taking a Green Tea Supplement, but wasn't sure if it was doing much of anything besides giving me a caffeine boost... I had found one that had green tea and fish oil.. It was pretty good IMO

Dive for the thrill, shoot for the kill.
I use melatonin when i cant sleep. Especially when on the road. Is fantastic
$50 bet with Rebels10 - Best of 3 Egg Bowls
**the $50 goes to others schools athletics dept**
I've used this as well... Knocks me out
E/C/A absolutely worked. The stimulation of B2 receptors leads to greater calorie and fat burning.

Do you think overdosing on all those supplements causes you to be a asinine Internet douche that suggests you "own" people every time you present your spurious counter-point in any thread you enter?
Could be all that Niacin that makes you a jackass IMHO.
The problem with melatonin is that after a while your body will stop producing it on its own. Then you won't be able to sleep without it. I used to use it, but stopping sucked. A lot of sleepiness nights before I got over it.
My use is very irregular. Maybe once or twice every month or two
I'm not sure you can get addicted to supplements, but I buy a lot of random ones on Amazon and try them out. I seriously have like 40 bottles of random things in my bathrooms. There are some good thoughts and picks iITT guys and I'm going to try a few. Thanks.

ECF it to lower liver impact. Once the liver goes my friends that's a bad day. It's still the best no doubt about it.
I use opti- men for the multi
Flax seed before bed to digest the bad fats
Bcaa's when cutting - when I wake up and in between meals if I can't eat within 4 hours of a previous meal.
Fish oil is a go to for many things as well and prob the most versatile - see ECF stack - liver, hair, skin, head health, cardiovascular health etc.
There's still so much debate on absorption rates and effectiveness for any vitaman/pill supp' but I say screw it, if I'm going to pay for a bottle of something that may help my body versus a single drink in NYC that I know will negate gains and and generally put me in a non healthy position on many levels(both enjoyable and not)well shit that's a net positive in my book.
Tumeric is a natural anti inflammatory. Coenzyme q10 is good for heart health.
I actually think anything that involves altering brain chemistry has addictive properties. Body becomes dependent on stuff like Melatonin, etc. Brains are lazy. If they can get the "stuff" they need, they'll stop producing it.
