    Multi-Vitamins. How Often?






    How often do you take your multis?

    What is the advantage to taking them twice a day as opposed to once a day?

    I take twinlabs dual tabs. One in the morning only with my protein shake. Im thinking about taking two a day though. One in the moring and one in the night. Would anyone go against two dual tabs a day? Is there a benifit in taking two a day?

    I take it once a day,but i have been using a generic store brand.Maybe I should fork out some cash and buy a good quality multivitamin.

    I take Usana's multi vits and minerals plus antioxidants extra E,C,fish oil,calcium,chlorella.I love the grape seed extract.The cpmpany definitely has some of the best available.
    People into sports and weight training need even more than the average person.One a days don't cover it really.I gave up my Twin Lab after using the Usana supps as the products had a much higher rating and certainly give me alot more energy.

    I purchase a high potency multi, split it in 2, and take them 12 hours apart. This reduces the amount that is pissed away.

    NMM, I have to say tha centrum is a waste of money,low potency,low bioavailability with too many fillers and binders.Definitely sub standard quality.You be better off witn Source ,Douglas Labs or Usana etc.

    It depends on what the dosage is.

    Most of the water erm... dissolved (?) vitamins the bodys got 3 hours to make use of. So taking them twice a day would give the body 6 h instead of once a day and only 3 hours.

    GNC is over priced and quality is sub standard and definitely not all mutli's are created equal.

    i take one-source from wal-mart but I am thinking about switching to animal pak from Universal Nutrition, what do you all think is there a big difference, are they worth the extra cash?

    There is a massive difference. Animal Pak is the #1 selling multi-vitamin. So I'm guessing there decent.

    I'm a USANA guy as well. They definitely make a difference because they are much higher quality than many store brands.
    Today I can do what others will not so that tomorrow I will do what others cannot.

    The difference between winners and losers is that winners do things that losers don't want to do.

    Not sure once a damn day is enough for hard core athelete's babsie.We need an optimum nutrition level,so ya gotta put in the things you don't get from food.
    Good for you Ponyboy,Usana is definitely some of the very best supps.Most network marketing companies have decent products ,Usana tops them.people should give em a try.I feel great all day.

    I take prenatal pills once a day.

    I use to take two a day for about 5 months--but now just one!

    Someone I know who take usana's multi twice a day say they are the sh!t. He and his wife are personal trainers and say they have noticed a huge difference.

    By spreading the dosage out, 2-3/day vs. 1/day, you retain more and piss out less.

    I've seen reports on the bioavailability and potency on various brands and Centrum was definately at the bottom.

    I'm looking around on the Usana website and I have no clue which one of their products is the one you guys are talking about. Any pointers?

    Btw, the price of these multivitamins are over the top!

    Skinny,The main Usana product to look for is the Essentials multi vitamin and mineral,also grape seed extract.Prices for members are an additional 25-35% off and very competitive.Bottom line is that we usually get what we pay for however many of the cheaper products are nowhere near the quality.
    I see a few people here who swear by Centrum but facts are facts.Centrum is a cheaply manyfactured vitamin of substandard quality and low bioavailability.So if we aren't supplying our cells with the nutrients we need with high quality supps we only hurt ourselves while trying to save a few bucks.I suggest checking out the evalution data, go to http://www.comparativeguide.com Good book! Cheers!
