You can take all of the listed various vitamins and supplements together. If you're only going to take them once a day, it is more beneficial to take them with your largest meal of the day, and that hopefully being dinner rather than with breakfast.

If you eat a balanced diet rich with fruits and vegetables you probably don't even need a multivitamin or other supplements. Recently there even has been controversy on the safety of multivitamins in general. I personally take a multi-vitamin, 2-3 mgs of fish oil a day, and 3000-5000iu vitamin D. I occasionally supplement with an electrolytes drink that ...

If you look closely, you will notice that at the bottom of the label it says "Percent Daily Values are based on a 2,000 calorie diet. Your daily values may be higher or lower depending on your calorie needs." So that clarifies the DV value for protein. As for micronutrients, the DV is based on the RDI (recommended daily intake) value, which represents the ...

It does depend on the fish and the cut of land meat you are comparing it to. If you were to compare tilapia with beef you'll find the macro-nutrients being very compatible. Fish is lower in cholesterol, and some types of fatty fish have a good amount of Omega-3s. Grass fed beef also has a good amount of Omega-3s in comparison to the Omega-6s, as opposed ...

There are very few evidence based benefits for taking vitamin supplements other than for diagnosed deficiencies. The one with probable benefits is vitamin D depending on how much you spend time in the sun. I live in Scandinavia so I take 400-800iu per day. In general moderately balanced diet should be enough to get pretty much all the required vitamins.

Are you taking a typical dose of multi vitamins? If so then keep it up. Thousands if not millions of people are taking a multi without exercising regularly. Taking a multi will help you stay healthier overall which will help you recover faster. For no other reason than your body doesn't have to work as hard to fight off illness. I don't quite understand the ...

I take vitamin b-complex to help me out during weightlifting and running. Before I started taking this, whenever I go to the gym in a lazy mode, I really lack the energy to complete my sets. After starting taking this vitamin b-complex, even when I in a lazy mode, when I start lifting, there is a surge of energy where I pull from, its even hard to ...

Short answer is "yes". When you are avoiding carbs temporarily to lose weight (an effective means of doing so) you are also avoiding certain foods that have the vitamins/minerals your body needs. For example: Many fruits are high in vitamins and minerals not found in protein sources or vegetables, or at least have them in higher concentrations. ...

The comments/answers about excess stuff easily disposed of by the body are rather inaccurate; water-soluble vitamins will wash out as you mentioned, but excess fat-soluble vitamins will remain in the adipose tissue, and will be released into the bloodstream as fat is burned, overloading kidneys and livers. Also Ca/K/Mg ions are the driving force of the ...

Your best 'natural' options will probably be... UV exposed mushrooms ...after one hour of UV light exposure right before the mushrooms were harvested, the vitamin D2 content in a serving of mushrooms rose to more than twice the FDA daily value. The effects were even more pronounced if mushrooms were exposed after harvesting: Monterey Mushrooms found ...

It does not help with recovery. It actually seems like recovery gets a bit worse with excessive intake of vitamin C. In our opinion, antioxidant supplements are, at the least, useless. Antioxidant supplements in exercise: worse than useless? Am J Physiol Endocrinol Metab February 15, 2012 302:E476-E477. Results: The administration of vitamin C ...

Here is a site about osteoporosis that will give you more information so that you can be informed when you talk to your doctor. The site mentions food sources of calcium and discusses ...

If I remember correctly, both MK4 and MK7 are types of Vitamin K2, whereas Kale would only contain K1, being a plant. As far as sources go, I believe plants contain K1, animal products (meat, eggs, dairy, grass-fed butter!) contain MK4 and bacteria produce MK7, which is therefor found in fermented food (Sauerkraut, Natto! Yoghurt... ).

The best source I know is red palm oil. (note that red = raw and unrefined, and that palm kernel oil is something else altogether) Raw palm oil not contains plenty of carotenes and lycopene, but also about 0.4 mg of tocotrienols plus a similar amount of alpha-tocopherol per 1 g of oil. Wheat germ oil is also rich in tocotrienols, and contains a lot more ...

I would recommend against getting the highest potency for the dollar. Quality matters. Higher quality supplements tend to be better absorbed and utilized by the body. Mega dozes of cheap supplements generally have a high percent pass through unused. In addition, some research suggests unnatural forms of supplements may not provide the same benefits or may ...

It depends on your age. How old you are can determine what things you need to focus on. Men's formulas have varying amounts of ingredients (like small amounts of iron). Some increase certain ingredients to help focus on specific areas (memory, prostate, cholesterol etc). My suggestion is you get a physical and talk to your doctor about the results and ...
