These are the Vitamins I want to take, and I need good brand names that I can buy in my Local store.
and any other vitamins you think would be good for a fighter, and I also am thinking of cutting some weight, so any vits that help with that.
thanks guy, remember I need brand names not some sick description, to be honest I really don't understand all the sciences of the vitamins, I just know the basics of what they do.
Multi's run from basic all the way up to overkill. For example- The GNC Mens formula that requires 2 a day and most vitamins are like 66438276% over ur daily value. These are like $30 bucks a box and are not really worth it. Some people swear by them, but a couple cheap Century vitamins at ur local grocery store are fine. I usually just pop 2 of those and there a hell of a lot cheaper. Vitamins are def necessary. They give ur body the antioxidants to keep ur body cells from destroying themselves (in short, theres more that goes with this) especially if ur training. Im not sure if I read someone posting they are not needed but, u really need to supplement extra vitamins and antioxidants when training.
As far as fish oil goes. Good stuff. I take 10-15 grams a day myself. Other forms are milled flax seeds. Both usually have a good spread of omega 3,6, and 9.
No real difference in brand really from my experience. So pick up what is around.
Vitamin C. This is one of the antioxidants I was talking about. You can get it from your multi but I put powdered vit C in my pre-workout cocktail everyday. Helps with muscle healing as well as antioxidant properties. BulkNutrition.com has great prices on bulk powders. Thats where I've been going for years.
Weight Loss supplements as in caffeine based garbage they sell at GNC and other places are poop... Unless u get some Clenbuterol or Ephedra (which I highly discourage) Dont waste ur money on these.
Fastest, healthiest way of losing weight is diet and exercise, as old folky as it sounds. I;ve tried everything under the sun and 99% is complete garbage.
Some less known weight loss supplements Ive used and still use are:
Raspberry Ketones- long reason on why I take them. PM or respond if interested
Chocomine- good chemicals in dark chocolate ,mixed with some caffeine and other cool stuff that works. its a powder and tastes like crap but just putting it out there.
good luck man. let me know if u need more info.
